By: Dr. Shoib Myint


Blepharoplasty, popularly known as an eyelid lift, is more than a cosmetic procedure. Its potential to improve vision is often overlooked. At Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, our team in Beverly Hills, CA and Las Vegas, NV is dedicated to improving your life with state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures such as the eyelid lift. Keep reading to learn more and explore this topic with renowned board-certified Oculo Facial Plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint.

Why consider blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty effectively addresses common signs of aging, like eyelid bags and droopy eyelids, restoring a youthful appearance. However, it also has the potential to significantly enhance your vision, particularly if you're struggling with a condition commonly referred to as "hooded eyes."

What are its benefits?

Hooded eyes refer to the condition where excess skin from the upper eyelid sags over the lashes, limiting peripheral vision. By removing this extra skin, blepharoplasty can help restore your line of sight. This procedure offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • Improved peripheral vision: By lifting hooded eyelids, this surgery can significantly expand your field of vision.
  • Reduction of eyelid bags: The procedure removes puffiness and bags under the eyes that can make you look tired or aged.
  • Enhanced appearance: An eyelid lift can give your eyes a more youthful, refreshed look.
  • Boosted self-confidence: Improved vision and a rejuvenated appearance can enhance your self-esteem.

Is blepharoplasty suitable for everyone?

It's important to note that while blepharoplasty offers numerous benefits, it may not be suitable for everyone. Factors such as your overall health, medical history, and personal goals play a critical role in determining if this procedure is right for you. During your consultation, Dr. Myint will thoroughly assess your condition and guide you through making an informed decision.

What can you expect during and after an eyelid lift?

An eyelid lift is generally an outpatient procedure performed using local anesthesia at our Beverly Hills, CA or Las Vegas, NV office. While recovery time varies, most patients can resume normal activities within 1 – 2 weeks. Dr. Myint and our team will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and the best possible outcome.

Can blepharoplasty transform your life?

Blepharoplasty can profoundly affect your life beyond just improving vision and reducing eyelid bags. First and foremost, it can significantly improve peripheral vision, enhancing your ability to perform everyday tasks such as reading, driving, or just enjoying your surroundings. Second, the procedure can dramatically improve your appearance by removing puffiness and lifting droopy eyelids, giving your eyes a refreshed and youthful look. This new look can boost self-confidence, positively affecting social and professional interactions. This newfound confidence and improved vision may inspire a healthier, more active lifestyle, improving the overall quality of life.
