What is an eyelid lift?

The eyes are a unique component of the face that deserves to be visible, but sometimes an abundance of lax skin around the eyes can create an aging appearance. Oculo Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint uses eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) to lift and tighten the lower or upper eyelids, creating a younger-looking and more awake profile. Countless men and women have undergone this procedure to remove sagging skin above their eyes or to reduce puffy bulges below their eyes, leading to improved functionality and a youthful aesthetic. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery helps create a fresh, rejuvenated appearance and can give you subtle yet striking results. If you want to learn more about refreshing your look with eyelid lift surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Myint at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV.

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.

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.

After retiring to Las Vegas in 2010, I consulted several LV doctors to find a plastic surgeon for upper eyelid surgery. All three doctors recommended Dr. Myint for the reason that he is only one of several Oculo Facial Plastic Surgeons world-wide and is the top in his field. I then googled him and was very impressed with his credentials. I went with him and since then have had several other procedures done by Dr. Myint. In all cases, I was extremely pleased with the results. He is an amazing and wonderful doctor, and I can attest that he lives up to everything stated on his website. The words: beloved, trust, passionate, cautious, and caring accurately describe Dr. Myint. I think the world of him and his staff Alexzandra and Brittney, and highly recommend Dr. Myint to anyone seeking to improve their appearance.

How Is an Eyelid Lift Performed?

Depending on the nature of the eyelid surgery at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery, some form of anesthesia will be used. An eyelid lift may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom eyelid, or a blend of both treatments.

  • Upper
    Upper eyelid surgery assists in diminishing the loose skin that droops over the eye to create a more flattering look. The incision point is often placed along the lid crease to remove skin and tissue.
  • Lower
    Lower eyelid surgery is performed to improve puffy skin under the lower eyelid. In most cases, an incision is made along the lash line to surgically remove tissue and fat, and the skin is delicately lifted to produce a flatter, smoother look. Sometimes, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be incorporated to help with discoloration, while injectable fillers can be used for more volume and smoothness if desired.

What are the types of blepharoplasties?

Depending on the type and complex nature of the eyelid surgery, some form of anesthesia will be administered. This surgery may be done on the top eyelid by itself, on the bottom portion, or a combination of both eyelids.

  • Upper
    Upper blepharoplasty assists in reducing the folds of skin that droop over the eye to produce a more flattering look. The incision point is often placed along the natural crease to remove loose skin and fatty tissue.
  • Lower
    Lower blepharoplasty is performed to improve puffy skin underneath the lower lid. The incision is placed below the lash line to allow access to remove tissue and fat, and the skin is delicately lifted to allow for a softer, flatter look.

About Us

Who is a Candidate for an eyelid lift?

Upper and lower blepharoplasty are facial cosmetic enhancements sought out by both men and women. During your private consultation, Dr. Myint will explain treatment options based on your areas of concern and goals. In most cases, ideal candidates suffer from excess, hanging skin and folds above their eyes or bloated skin just below their bottom eyelids. These conditions sometimes cause functional and visual impairments that can hinder everyday life, making simple tasks difficult to perform. For a rejuvenated look, eyelid surgery may be the appropriate procedure for you. If you have loose skin that droops on your upper eyelid or bulging bags under your eyes, blepharoplasty can help to correct this and give you a younger appearance.

What can I expect after eyelid surgery?

After your procedure, you should plan to rest and avoid strenuous activities for at least several days. You can expect to experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising, but this is normal and can typically be eased with a cold compress or pain medication. The outcomes from eyelid surgery can last for many years, but while they are long-lasting, the natural aging process does not stop. To help maintain your results, nonsurgical eye lift treatments or revisional eyelid lift surgery can be performed at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery.

Is an eyelid lift painful?

An eyelid lift is considered to be one of the least painful cosmetic surgical procedures and requires only local anesthesia. While you may notice a slight sting as the anesthesia is injected, most patients report little to no discomfort during their surgery. After your procedure, you can expect some soreness or bruising, but this will fade as you heal.

How long do eyelid lifts last?

While an eyelid lift can deliver long-lasting improvements for your eyes and overall appearance, age and gravity can affect your results over time. For most patients, an upper eyelid lift will last for 5 – 7 years, though some individuals enjoy their new look for 10 years or longer. Lower blepharoplasty, which focuses on removing fat from under the eyes, offers lifetime improvements for most people.

What is the best treatment for hooded, droopy, or saggy eyelids?

In most cases, an upper blepharoplasty (or upper eyelid lift) is the most effective way to address drooping lids. By cutting away excess skin and tightening the remaining tissues, Dr. Myint can create a more clear-eyed, alert appearance.

How long does eyelid lift surgery take?

An eyelid lift can be done in as little as 45 minutes or as long as three hours. The time that your surgery takes will depend on which eyelid is being treated (upper, lower, or both) and how much tissue needs to be removed or repositioned. Dr. Myint will let you know what to expect, including the length of your treatment, after building your surgery plan.

How much does an eyelid lift cost?

The average cost for an eyelift lift typically falls between $4,000 – $7,000, but this can vary based on the amount of excess skin, the approach Dr. Myint takes for your procedure, and other factors. During your consultation, we'll build a personalized treatment plan and come up with a price estimate, which will include facility costs and anesthesia.

What age should you get an eye lift?

When it comes to eyelid lifts, the amount of sagging or excess skin is more relevant than age. Many individuals start noticing sagging and signs of aging in their 30s, though you might be younger or older. During your consultation, Dr. Myint will perform a comprehensive assessment and help you decide if an eyelid lift is right for you.

Younger-Looking Eyes

If your vision is impaired from folds of skin on your upper eyelids or if you're frustrated by puffy bags under your eyes, then an eyelid lift at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery may be right for you. Blepharoplasty might be covered by some insurance providers, and the cost will vary depending on whether you're getting an upper eyelid lift, lower, or both. Once your treatment plan is created, our office can estimate your costs. Contact our practice in Las Vegas, NV today to schedule your consultation with seasoned oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint.
