Oculoplastic Surgeon

Dr. Anne Rowland knew from an early age she would one day work in medicine. Over time, it became clear that oculoplastics surgery was her true calling.

“Even as a child I was detail-oriented and liked to make the world more beautiful,” she said in her office recently. “I think it often irritated my teachers when I would spend an inordinate amount of time perfecting my school projects, even something as silly as designing T-shirts.  But my parents were always encouraging and patient, and had faith that I would someday put these traits to good use.”  

Those qualities plus what she saw as the “certain elegance” of eyelid surgery and care — in minute suturing and tissue repositioning — ultimately led her to a career in the reconstruction and cosmetic rejuvenation of the eyelids and face.


Dr. Rowland’s education includes graduating Cum Laude from Dartmouth College, obtaining her M.D. at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and completing her residency in Ophthalmology at Louisiana State University.  Seeking advanced training in ophthalmic plastics surgery, she moved to California to study under Dr. Kimberly Cockerham.

Areas of Experties

Now as an associate at the Eye Specialty Group in Memphis, TN, Dr. Rowland is a leading expert in the treatment of aging changes, cancers, inflammations, and other conditions of the eyes and eyelids. She also specializes in facial aesthetics, focusing on achieving natural looking results using the latest technologies and non-invasive techniques. Although there are many who may perform various cosmetic procedures, she has specific medical training in ophthalmic plastic surgery, which focuses on improving one’s appearance while also caring for the health and the function of a person’s eyes and face.

“I dedicate myself to providing personalized care to each and every one of my patients in a safe, compassionate environment.”
