Michelle Nguyen, M.D.
Dr. Michelle Nguyen, M.D. (pronounced “Win”) is a board-certified ophthalmologist who is fellowship-trained in ophthalmic plastic surgery and specializes in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, brows, forehead, and tear drainage system.
Dr. Nguyen was born and raised in Southern California and attended the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychobiology and earned her medical degree at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. As a medical student, she was drawn to the field of ophthalmology for its focus on improving vision. During ophthalmology residency, her mentors noted that she had a keen eye for aesthetics and encouraged her to pursue fellowship training in ophthalmic plastic surgery. Through ophthalmic plastic surgery, she has been able to combine her passion for helping patients improve their vision while also helping them look and feel their best. Dr. Nguyen’s surgical talent is led by her soft and gentle approach, communicating with each patient to help create a customized aesthetic goal. She believes that the key to a successful surgical result is through improving and enhancing each patient’s individual beauty rather than changing it. Dr. Nguyen’s meticulous attention to detail combined with her patient-centered approach allows her to provide each patient the opportunity to be the best version of themselves.
Dr. Nguyen specializes in upper and lower lid blepharoplasty (removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower lids), ptosis repair (lifting droopy eyelids), brow lifts, and Mohs eyelid surgical reconstruction (eyelid reconstruction after skin cancer removal). She performs minimally-invasive procedures such as Botox and Xeomin injections (for improvement and prevention of wrinkles and to treat hemifacial spasm, blepharospasm, and migraines) and filler injections (Restylane). Dr. Nguyen also treats common eyelid conditions such as dry eyes/blepharitis and removal of chalazion/stye, skin tags, cysts, and bumps on the eyelids.
Dr. Nguyen is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and American Medical Association. She is proud to now call Tennessee home and continue serving the growing communities in Middle Tennessee.
