Vold Vision is proud to introduce our newest doctor and surgeon, Dr. Hans Barron Heymann. Dr. Heymann is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. He rounds out a team of nine doctors at Vold Vision.
Dr. Heymann’s focus on plastic and reconstructive surgery will include the eyelids, tear ducts, and orbit, along with cosmetic surgery of the eyelids and brows. He will also perform aesthetic rejuvenation cosmetic procedures on the face with Botox or Xeomin, used to relax fine lines and wrinkles from the face, and facial fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse, and Belotero.
“Our team is beyond excited to welcome Dr. Heymann to our practice and to Northwest Arkansas,” said Dr. Steven Vold, chief medical officer at Vold Vision. “With a mission to continue advancing eye care across our region, Dr. Heymann is another strategic and key addition to our team. The impact he will make in the lives of our patients is going to be tremendous.”
Dr. Heymann will perform a wide breadth of surgeries and procedures. Among the most common plastic and reconstructive procedures is blepharoplasty and ptosis repair to correct droopy eyelids. Blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove excess sagging skin and muscle from the eyelids to restore a more youthful look and improve peripheral vision. Ptosis repair is an eyelid lifting procedure to restore the edge of the eyelid (from where the eyelashes emerge) to its normal state above the pupil. Dr. Heymann will also perform eyebrow lifts, remove styes, skin tags or a potentially malignant condition such as skin cancer, repair blocked tear ducts, correct eyelids that are turned in or away from the eye causing constant irritation.
Dr. Heymann has extensive training with two fellowships including an Oculoplastic Surgery Fellowship accredited by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and a Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. He completed his residency in ophthalmology at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, and he attended the University of Texas at Austin where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in history and a minor in biology.
With a heart for medical missions, Dr. Heymann has traveled to West Africa to help local doctors treat preventable blindness by screening patients for cataract surgery in outreach clinics.
Dr. Heymann and his wife are excited to be in NWA and have settled into the area. Dr. Heymann shared, “I can now officially say, I have attended my first Arkansas Razorback game and learned to call the Hogs. It has been great to begin meeting people in the community and look forward to meeting many more.”
