How Does Blepharoplasty Make You Look Younger?

By: Dr. Shoib Myint


Many people consider the eyes and the skin surrounding them the most important facial features. Sun exposure, genetics, and the natural aging process all contribute to the development of fine or deep lines, wrinkles, under-eye bags, and fat loss, leading to sagging. At Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, board-certified physician and fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint offers the Myint Eyelift for patients in Beverly Hills, CA and Las Vegas, NV who are looking to restore a youthful appearance to their eyes. This is achieved by balancing the eyelid tissues during blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.

Loss of fat can create a hollow face with deep circles around the eyes. The Myint Eyelift can move fat around the lower and upper eyelids to give you the fullness you are looking for. We use growth factors from your blood to allow for a faster recovery.

Benefits of eyelid lift surgery

There are many benefits of having the Myint Eyelift in Las Vegas, NV or Beverly Hills, CA at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, including:

  1. No visible scarring on the lower eyelid

  2. Use of your own blood for faster healing

  3. More natural-looking results than regular blepharoplasty

  4. More volume from evenly distributing eyelid fat

What is eyelid surgery?

Dr. Myint performs the Myint Eyelift procedure while the patient is under local anesthesia, meaning there is sometimes no need for IV sedation. During the procedure, patients are awake and comfortable. We perform this eyelid surgery at our fully-accredited surgery center on an outpatient basis. First, a tiny incision is made in the upper eyelid crease, so it is hidden. A small portion of skin, and sometimes either muscle or fat, may be removed or repositioned. Stitches are used and then removed about a week after surgery. If the lower eyelid is being worked on, an incision is made inside the eyelid to limit scarring. The bags are improved by moving them to maintain volume where you need it most. We use growth cells from your own blood components to help you heal faster.

Before you leave, Dr. Myint will provide you post-op instructions to follow at home. It’s normal for the area around your eyes to be swollen for a week or two with bruising, based on the extent of your surgery. Makeup can be worn after a week. Results will appear in about two to three weeks after surgery; however, it may take up to three months for the final results to appear.

Is the Myint eyelift covered by insurance?

This depends on whether or not we can prove that it is medically necessary. If not, we do offer financing options to help you pay for your eyelid surgery. We will review all financial obligations with you prior to your surgery. The Myint eyelift cost ranges from $3,500­-$9,000, depending on the number of procedures and specifics.
