Dr. Carniciu’s area of expertise focuses exclusively on plastic surgery of the face, with special attention to the delicate tissues surrounding the eyes. Using a natural approach, Dr. Carniciu is passionate about improving her patients’ quality of life and confidence through reconstructive and cosmetic oculoplastic surgery.

Dr. Carniciu completed her undergraduate studies in biology and moral philosophy at Dartmouth College.

Following residency, Dr. Carniciu was one of 25 surgeons selected for a highly prestigious fellowship in oculofacial plastic surgery (“oculoplastics”) sponsored by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). She trained in oculoplastics at the University of Michigan and at Consultants in Ophthalmic and Facial Plastic Surgery, one of the nation’s top oculofacial plastic surgery practices. After completion of her 2-year ASOPRS fellowship in Michigan, Dr. Carniciu is honored to return home and care for patients in New York.

Dr. Carniciu offers a variety of advanced treatments, including upper and lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), droopy eyelid repair, endoscopic forehead and brow lift, midface lift, tear duct repair, and treatment of facial skin cancers. She also offers minimally-invasive rejuvenation procedures such as Botox® and dermal fillers. Outside of the operating suite, Dr. Carniciu is an avid oculoplastic surgery educator and has published numerous textbook chapters, journal articles, and presented her research at national meetings.
