Doctor Olson is board certified and fellowship trained as an oculofacial plastic surgeon. She is a fellow of the prestigious American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) with fewer than 650 fellows nationwide. “Today’s aesthetic surgeries and minimally invasive techniques can dramatically improve the way people look and feel about themselves.” An Associate Clinical Professor at Yale University and past director of Yale Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery, Doctor Olson has been in private practice since 1992 specializing in performing aesthetic eyelid surgery, facial injectables and lasers.
As both an academic and a practicing surgeon, Doctor Olson keeps abreast of the latest advancements in her field. “Great strides have been made in cosmetic enhancement in recent years. I think the paradigm of facial surgery has gone from being aggressive to more minimally invasive procedures, performed in combination gradually over time.” Doctor Olson’s advanced use of fillers like HA gels (RHA portfolio, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Vollure, Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne and Defyne, and Restylane Kysse), Radiesse, Sculptra and Silhoutte PLLA absorbable sutures produces dramatic results. “These new generation dermal and deep fillers and biostimulators provide longer lasting and more cost-effective results.”
During eyelid surgery, preserving fat can prevent people from looking hollow. An expert in eyelid surgery and reconstruction, Dr Olson contours and lifts the lids taking care not to subtract too much precious tissue around the eyes. Working around the eyes is something that Doctor Olson takes very seriously. While she is all about aesthetics, she says safety and the function of the eyes is always most important. “I believe in combining surgical and non-surgical treatments in a nuanced fashion to achieve the most natural facial shape and contours.”
When taking care of patients, Doctor Olson takes the necessary time to assess their desires, decide on the most appropriate treatment plan for that individual, and then see the person through the entire process of aesthetic improvement. In many cases she does so by using a combination of surgery, fillers, BOTOX, lights, lasers and medical skin care. No matter what the treatment plan is, all of Doctor Olson’s services are provided in an approachable and caring manner.
