Dr. Pacheco’s practice integrates cosmetic and reconstructive eyelid surgery with facial rejuvenation. Patients are referred to Dr. Pacheco from all over the country because of her expertise and artistic precision; for cosmetic eyelid surgery, correction of drooping eyelids and other eyelid malpositions, eyelid reconstruction after tumor removal, eye socket reconstruction and blocked tear ducts.

At Dr. Pacheco’s Adoro Medical Spa, a variety of aesthetic treatment options is available. From the customized use of Botox® and Dysport® to the full array of natural filler injections, her finesse has earned Dr. Pacheco “BEST OF” awards for years. Other treatments include the state-of-art Thermage® (non-surgical facelift), Photorejuvenation by IPL/BBL/Forever Young BBL™, C02 and Fraxel® skin lasers, medical skin care, and permanent fat reduction by Liposonix®. Medical grade facials, peels and skin care are all available at the Spa. Attention to detail and a meticulous nature lend an artistic touch to her work. Dr. Elba Pacheco’s dedication and concern toward her patients are the reasons she continues to be awarded ‘BEST OF’ in Annapolis and the Eastern Shore.

Dr. Pacheco’s precision and quality care comes from her world-class medical training and personal philosophy. After receiving her medical degree from Columbia University, she completed residency training in ophthalmology at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami. Further post-graduate study followed at The Johns Hopkins University’s Wilmer Eye Institute with dual fellowships in Oculofacial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and Pediatric Ophthalmology.

Dr. Pacheco is also widely published and often consulted by others physicians.

Dr. Pacheco knows that the eyes are the center of a person’s inner beauty and the unspoken reflection of their soul. Her greatest satisfaction comes from giving her patients back a younger version of themselves, and in return, she is privileged to treat their family and friends. As you would select a cardiologist to treat your heart problem, you would want an Oculofacial plastic surgeon to rejuvenate your eyes and overall facial appearance.
