Reviews

"Looking 10 Years Younger!!!! I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before - Dr. Myint performed my brow lift two weeks ago, and I absolutely love the results. The procedure resulted in minimal discomfort relieved by Tylenol for two days. Before my brow lift, I disliked looking at pictures of myself, and always appeared exhausted. Now I feel confident and see the bright, young eyes I knew before. I have tried multiple non-invasive lasers over the last few years, and have even tried injectables. I am very happy that I consulted with Dr. Myint and proceeded with a surgical procedure that will benefit my looks for many years to come. If you want youthful, beautiful, natural-looking results, treat yourself to Dr. Myint's talents. Dr. Myint is highly accomplished, has a superb bedside manner, and will provide ample information before and after the procedure."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Myint for the last few years and I'm extremely happy with his expertise and results. He is truly knowledgable and highly talented. A real artist in the best sense of the word. He is also very good in reconstruction surgery and in fixing the mistakes of other doctors. His results are natural and always perfect. As a model and beauty queen I wouldn't trust anyone else."

"I recently had an eye lift and forhead lift with Dr. Myint. I chose him as he had performed an emergency surgery on my daughter as she was bit by a dog near her eye. She fully recovered and we can barely can see her scar. I also chose him because he specializes in not just plastic surgery but your eyes as well. The surgery went great and his entire office was very attentive. I saw him several times during the healing process and he was very patient with me as I expressed various concerns with the healing process. He seemed genuinly interested in my opinions and concerns. He addressed every one. It has been six months and I am super happy. I have seen a couple friends for the first time since Covid and they have commented on my eyes and face. It was money well spent! I highly recommend Dr. Myint!"

"I had originally gone to another surgeon for a consultation for eyelid surgery. I told him I felt my eyelids made me look tired, old and angry. He gave me a price for my eyelids and quickly left the room. I felt like I was bothering him. My friend had gone to Dr. Myint and was so impressed with him she insisted I meet with him before deciding on a surgeon. When I met with Dr Myint I told him the same thing. I needed eyelid surgery. He said “that’s not what you’re looking for. You’re looking for this”. With that said, he lifted up my eyelid and pulled my forehead back a little. With mirror in hand he said “I think this is what you’re looking for”. YES!! That’s it! That’s exactly what I want!! It’s been a little over a month since my Eyelid and Brow Lift surgery. Although I’m still healing the difference in my appearance is amazing. My husband and friends tell me I look at least 10 years younger. I have more confidence and self-esteem. Dr Myint is amazing. He’s a perfectionist. He checks my healing process every couple weeks. I am so thankful my friend recommended Dr. Myint. If I had gone with that other surgeon, I would not not be happy right now. He would have given me what I asked for and not what I needed."

"The results look natural and my friends and family say I look refreshed - Another plastic surgeon initially referred me to Dr. Myint because he specializes in eyelid surgeries. I also did a consultation with another surgeon, but after meeting with Dr. Myint, I knew he was the one. I was impressed by his honesty, candid responses to my questions and that he did not try to oversell me on additional procedures. I felt so comfortable with Dr. Myint that I decided to have the lower bleph and mini facelift surgeries done together because of the similar recovery time frames. Dr. Myint is a masterful surgeon with a reassuring demeanor. I had the lower bleph and mini facelift surgery 2-1/2 months ago and I am amazed and very pleased with the results. On the day of surgery, I could see Dr. Myint's experience and artistry as he did the markings and explained the procedures. I felt calm and reassured that I was in the best hands for the surgery. Dr. Myint and his staff were professional and responsive to my questions pre and post-operation. Dr. Myint was excellent at communicating what to expect during the recovery period and everything he said is exactly what I experienced. It was reassuring to know that the swelling and day-to-day changes were a normal part of recovery. I am so glad I had the two procedures done together because now I am back to my normal activities and feel I look younger and more vibrant. The results look natural and my friends and family say I look refreshed. The lower eyelid bags and jowls that were the biggest issue for me are gone. It's like the clock has been reversed 10-15 years. I highly recommend Dr. Myint if you are looking for natural looking results. Thank you Dr. Myint!"
