As a proud Baton Rouge native, Dr. Sanchez excitedly brought his family back to his hometown to begin his practice.

Dr. Sanchez has always considered himself a family man, and he and his family enjoy spending time together outdoors fishing, hunting, or playing a round or two of golf.
Interest in Form and Function
Dr. Sanchez attributes his curiosity into art, form and function to countless time as a child spent with his grandfather in their wood shop. His grandfather, a master carpenter, taught him the importance of hard work, preparation, and attention to detail. According to Dr. Sanchez, he uses these skills from his grandfather every day as a plastic surgeon.
It was Dr. Sanchez’s experience growing up with a mother battling a chronic illness that first sparked an interest in medicine. Observing the daily struggles of his mother and her determination to provide for her family instilled within him compassion, ambition, and a will to persevere. Dr. Sanchez’s early and personal exposure to medicine serves as a foundation to the care and personal dedication given to every patient.
"This review describes Dr. Sanchez's passion for each & everyone of his patients Shortly after the August flood, I seriously injured a leg during clean-up. The prospects for a poor outcome were high. The prospects of a good outcome depended on careful, expert and skillful surgery (and a smile from above!). Dr. Sanchez did his part with consummate skill. He was careful to keep my wife and I informed at each step exactly what he was doing and why. My highest praise and sincerest recommendation for Dr. Sanchez!"
"Best plastic surgeon around ! Where do I start? Dr. Sanchez is the best plastic surgeon in Baton Rouge, Louisiana!!! His beside manner, knowledge and his love for his patients is like no other !! I was not asked to write a review I just knew I needed to share my experience that I had on 2/10/17 with others so that others can see for themselves! I visited Dr. Sandchez office because I was experiencing pain in my adbodom after seeing another plastic surgeon from another state that preformed a Smart Liposuction procedure and he didn't hesitate to take care of me. He told me to come in and he would take care of it ! And he did just that. He drained 350cc of fluid from my stomach and immediately all of my pain went away ! I would definitely recommend him for all of your plastic surgery needs!"
"Five out of five stars for this excellent doctor! He saved my husband the possibility of several surgeries. I am very grateful that he answered the call for my husband. We will always remember the care he gave, both surgically excellent and courteous "bed-side manner". Thank you, Dr. Sanchez! Rosanne Williams"
"Dr. Sanchez does fabulous work! He takes really great care of his patients and is very knowledgeable. If you are looking for some for someone to treat you like family, go see him!"
"Went to Dr Sanchez for Botox. The staff was nice and welcoming. Dr Sanchez did my Botox himself and took time to explain what he was doing and how many units I needed. Very happy with the results. Will definitely go back."
