Dr. Haas is also an Oculoplastics Specialist. He has been on the cutting edge of facial cosmetic procedures since 1987 when he first injected Botox. He was among the first doctors in this area to use Restylane after traveling to Sweden more than eight years ago to train with Europe's most experienced Plastic Surgeons.  Dr. Haas is a surgical innovator whose expertise is recognized internationally. He was a featured speaker at the National Congress of Ophthalmologists in Argentina.

"I bring a lot of focus, experience, and imagination to my cosmetic and reconstructive surgery," says Dr. Haas. "My goal is to bring the most skilled and thoughtful care to each patient."

That care includes a personalized treatment plan. "I always customize my work, keeping the patient's goals in mind while making safety a priority. When you're operating on the delicate tissues around the eyes, you never want to compromise function for form," he says.  Dr. Haas doesn't perform "cookie-cutter" surgery. In fact, nurses in Dr. Haas' operating room sometimes joke that they've never seen him perform surgery the same way twice.

Dr. Haas is a decorated veteran of the Persian Gulf War, having served the Navy as a Commander in the Medical Corps.  As Chief of Oculoplastic Surgery at Bethesda Naval Hospital he proudly operated on military personnel and their families as well as many of our nation's leaders.
