About eyelid reconstruction
The eyelids are very delicate in nature, making them more susceptible to injury or damage. There are a number of reasons why someone might seek surgical intervention. In some cases, reconstructive surgery is the best option to correct torn eyelids or to restore tissue after tumor removal. Fellowship-trained oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint is a leading professional in the field of oculoplastic surgery. His years of diverse experience and expertise make him an excellent choice for correcting eyelid trauma. Call Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV to set up a consultation and learn more.
"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."- E. / RealSelf / Jun 15, 2020

candidates for eyelid reconstruction
Eyelid reconstruction is generally recommended for patients who have recently had a tumor or cancerous tissue removed, an injury or tear in their eyelid due to an accident, or severe disfigurement from previous eyelid surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Myint, he will perform a thorough exam of your facial structures and discuss your unique concerns. From there, he can provide his recommendation on whether reconstructive surgery is the right option.
eyelid reconstruction surgery
Eyelid reconstruction is performed on-site at our accredited surgical facility in Las Vegas, NV. Depending on the complexity of your condition, reconstructive surgery may take anywhere from around 1 – 3 hours. For superficial deformities, Dr. Myint will use simple techniques to correct these issues. In more intricate cases, a skin graft or flap may be required to complete the reconstruction. Severe cases also generally require more than one surgery (staged reconstruction).
After your procedure
After surgery, it's normal to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in and around the treatment area. These symptoms should fade over the next few weeks as the eyelids heal and can typically be eased with cold therapy and pain medication. A follow-up exam is typically set up about one week after your surgery, but sutures are usually removed after around 4 – 5 days. Our team will provide you with post-op instructions to follow at home, but if you have any questions or concerns regarding your recovery, do not hesitate to give us a call. We're here to serve you.
