Oculofacial Plastic Surgery in Annandale, VA

Facial aging, including aging around the eyes, is influenced by a variety of factors, including genetics, the natural aging process, hormonal changes, and lifestyle choices. At Anh Nguyen Ophthalmology, our board-certified ophthalmologist, Lamise Rajjoub, M.D., specializes in aesthetic and reconstructive oculofacial plastic surgery. She is also an Assistant Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at The George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences.

Oculoplastic Surgery

Oculoplastic surgery is an umbrella term that encompasses many procedures around the eyes. This form of surgery can be done to correct medical issues, cosmetic concerns, or both. These conditions may include, but are not limited to, eyelid growths, obstructed tear ducts, ptosis, ectropion, entropion, and more.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a popular cosmetic procedure for restoring a more open, youthful appearance to the eyes. As we age, our eyelid skin can become lax and heavy, leading to a tired, aged, or even angry appearance. Individuals who are bothered by sagging eyelid skin can often benefit from this procedure. However, those with severe upper eyelid sagging that affects their vision may be better suited for ptosis surgery.

Patients can choose to undergo an upper blepharoplasty, a lower blepharoplasty, or both, depending on their aesthetic goals. Through skillfully placed incisions on or in the eyelid, excess skin and fat will be removed to achieve the desired results.

Brow Lift

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is performed to refresh and rejuvenate the area above the eyes. During the procedure, excess sagging skin is removed from the forehead, and underlying tissues and muscles are repositioned. A brow lift is a great option for individuals seeking correction of heavy, sagging brows and deep furrows.
