Kenneth Odinet, DDS, M.D.
The single most important factor in the success of plastic surgery is the surgeon you select. Choosing a surgeon who is board certified is the first step in making an informed decision.
Dr. Kenneth Odinet, native of South Louisiana, spent many years in training around the country before returning to this area to offer residents innovative, state-of-the-art care. Dr. Odinet received his medical degree from Louisiana State University in 1988 and completed his residencies in both otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) and plastic surgery between 1989 and 1995.
In addition, he received extensive training after his residencies; first in aesthetic plastic surgery at Lenox Hospital in New York City; then as a fellow in craniofacial (facial and skeletal) and orthognathic (jaw) surgery at the University of Pittsburgh. He earned his dental degree from LSU and was a practicing pediatric dentist while in medical school.
Dr. Odinet's combined advanced training makes him uniquely qualified to ensure that your plastic surgery options function as well as they look. Currently he is the only plastic surgeon in Acadiana board certified in ear, nose, and throat (head and neck) surgery, and plastic and reconstructive surgery. With a combined background in dentistry and plastic surgery, Dr. Odinet can offer you a wide range of plastic and reconstructive surgery options.
His expertise includes:
- hand surgery (including reattachment microsurgery for carpal tunnel syndrome)
- nasal surgery
- scar revision
- and many nonsurgical alternatives
Dr. Odinet is a member of the American Medical Association, the Louisiana State Medical Society, the American College of Surgeons and the American College of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, American Society of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
, American Board of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery, and American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Odinet stays abreast of all the current trends and the latest techniques in plastic surgery.

Dr. Odinet currently serves on the Board at Park Place Surgical Hospital and is on the Board of Directors at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center.
