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.

"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
"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."- L.S. / Yelp / Aug 13, 2020
"I was referred to Dr. Myint by the Shepherd Eye Clinic to have a growth between my right eye and nose removed. This was done a few days ago. During the entire process, prior visits and surgery, I have been pleased with my treatment by Dr. Myint and his staff. There is one item I believe Dr. Myint and his staff might address, and that's call backs to the patient who call in to speak to his surgical schedulers. A patient calls in, the call goes to voice mail where the message says to leave a message and someone will return the call. Sometimes it's two days before there's a call back. That doesn't work for me. What am I supposed to do, sit at home by the phone and wait for the callback? Does anyone have a suggestion for how this can be improved for both the patient and the doctor and his staff? It's easy for me to complain but what would I do if I were in the other position? The best to all of you."- B.B. / Healthgrades / Dec 18, 2020
"I have always wanted to get a (blepharoplasty) upper and lower eyelid surgery. I chose Dr Myint because of his extensive experience with eye surgery as well as head and neck surgery. The staff made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions without hesitation. The day of my surgery I was feeling very anxious and nervous,about having my surgery done. Dr Myint and his staff made me feel very comfortable the day of my surgery to ease my anxiety. After my surgery Dr Myint and staff called me the day after to ease my mind about any questions that I had and to let me know that I didn't very well during the surgery. I cannot Express how much the surgery has changed my life. I was having trouble with my vision and the eye surgery took care of that issue. Not only did the surgery take care of my vision issues but also took 10 years off of my appearance to give me a more youthful look. I cannot thank Dr Myint and his staff enough for this positive experience and outcome. I would recommend Dr Myint to anyone looking to improve their appearance , vision and quality of life. Sincerely Andrew Truffin"- A.T. / Google / Nov 04, 2020
"It may sound crazy but I chose Dr. Myint because of his name "Myint" meant to me that his work would demonstrate " mint condition". So far I have not been disappointed. He is straight forward and honest. He walked me thru the healing process. Everything he told me is just how it happened, so no unpleasant surprises. He assured me that if by chance I wasn't pleased with any part of the surgery he would fix it. Can't ask for anymore than that. I looked old and tired with the under eye bags and wrinkles that they presented so I wanted them gone. Although I still have some healing to do, my appearance has improved greatly and things get better daily. I'm happy that I chose him. Nice to have someone you can trust with your face😊"- D.A. / Google / Oct 30, 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.
