Oculofacial Plastic Surgery in Vienna, VA

Our faces are often the first things that people notice about us, as they convey emotion. As we age, our faces change due to skin laxity, wrinkles, lines, and more. Patients who are seeking to improve common facial aging concerns or address medical issues concerning their eyes may benefit from a selection of procedures at Anh Nguyen Ophthalmology. As a board-certified ophthalmologist and Assistant Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Sciences, Lamise Rajjoub, M.D. specializes in aesthetic and reconstructive oculofacial plastic surgery.

Oculoplastic Surgery

Most procedures that are performed around the eyes fall under the term “oculoplastic surgery”, and are usually done to correct a medical issue or a cosmetic concern. There are a variety of conditions that can be addressed with oculoplastic surgery, including ptosis, entropion, ectropion, eyelid growths, obstructed tear ducts, tumors, injuries, and more. Dr. Rajjoub is highly skilled in addressing numerous oculoplastic concerns to help patients look and feel their best.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

With age, the muscles and skin around the eyes naturally weaken, which can lead to skin laxity and droopy appearance. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is performed to restore a more open and naturally youthful appearance to the eyes. This is a highly individualized procedure that can address a variety of aesthetic concerns around the upper and lower eyelids, such as sagging skin, wrinkles, puffiness, and other signs of aging.

Patients can choose to undergo an upper blepharoplasty, a lower blepharoplasty, or both. During an upper blepharoplasty, an incision is created along the upper eyelid’s natural crease to hide any post-surgery scarring. Through this incision, muscle, excess skin, and fat are removed. During a lower blepharoplasty, the incision is created just below the lashes or inside the lower lid. Excess fat, skin, and muscle are then removed through this incision.

Individuals experiencing extremely saggy upper eyelids that affect their vision may benefit from ptosis surgery, which involves tightening the muscle responsible for lifting the upper eyelid.

Brow lift

A brow lift, also called a forehead lift, can rejuvenate the face above the eyes for a more vibrant appearance. During this procedure, excess, lax skin on the forehead is removed, and underlying muscles and tissues are repositioned. This procedure can correct heavy, sagging brows, address deep furrows, and restore a more youthful forehead.
