Welcome to our Practice

Larissa Habib, MD, at Northeast Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, in Fairfield, Connecticut, is a board-certified Oculofacial surgeon, specializing in the form, function, health, and the beauty of eyes.

Why choose an Oculofacial Surgeon?

Your eyes not only give you sight, but are also what scholars have long acknowledged to be a focal point of your facial features. They are the first thing people will notice about you, and as multiple studies show, significantly influence first impressions. 

Your eyes and the structures around them form a complex yet delicate ecosystem, going beyond the scope of general plastic surgery.

Dr. Habib completed her Ophthalmology residency at Columbia University. She went on to complete an Ocular Oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She completed an additional fellowship in Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. 

She is certified as an ASPORS surgeon; a distinction held only by a few hundred surgeons worldwide. She is also one of the first doctors to offer a groundbreaking — treatment for thyroid eye disease (TED), TEPEZZA®.

Dr. Habib serves as teacher and mentor at Yale School of Medicine for physicians completing their Ophthalmology residency, and was awarded Yale School of Medicine’s Best Surgical Teacher. Logging thousands of hours in the operating room, she strives to advance her surgical techniques and perfect her craft. 

She has over thirty peer reviewed publications, and is continuously invited as a speaker and instructor to local, national, and international medical conferences. 

In a rapidly evolving field, Dr. Habib prioritizes remaining current, and prides herself as an ongoing learner. She often engages with the latest studies and treatments for a wide range of eye disorders and cosmetic renewals.

Regardless of the severity of the condition, Dr. Habib approaches all her visits with the same professionalism, and priority. She not only cares for you as a patient, but also sees you as a person. 

She will take the time to get to know your individual needs, goals and expectations in order to inform her approach. Her dedication to her patients fuels her drive to do as much as she can to provide the best possible care.

Dr. Habib warmly welcomes all patients into Northeast Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and looks forward to providing the personalized care each person deserves. To schedule an appointment, call the office or request one online today.

Uncomfortable waiting room Front desk should have called me about the delay do i could take the premed later Despite the ice packs was throbbing all the way home . I should have been told to bring es tylenol or offered some for the long ride home. I think all if the above helped contribute to my elevated blood pressure which thankfully the surgeon gave me the opportunity for it to resume normal so the procedure was able to be completed since tome off from work and getting a ride to fairfield required lots of preplanning. I am glad the surgeon encouraged me to do this without full anesthesia and Alexis was a fabulous assistant. Ironically anthem blue cross prior auth arrived in todays mail.

Going to a new Dr. with anxiety already about your problem is stressful. I couldn’t have had a better experience. The ambiance of the office is calm. Briana the receptionist was welcoming, patient and efficient. Then Alexa, Michael part of Dr. Habib’s team did the preliminary testing we’re great and you felt in good hands. Dr. Habib came in and did the rest of exam and was delightful and professional. Got the prognosis then 3 options to choose from with her guidance. I felt so taken care of and confident in the direction I needed to go. Being a senior citizen it is a blessing to get a Dr. like Dr. Habib and team to guide you. Working in the medical field myself for decades, it is a joy to know excellent Drs. to help you on your journey. Thank you.
