About Fat Transfers with LOWER BLEPHAROPLASTY
The presence of lower eyelid bags and hollowness can give the appearance of that “tired” look. The underlying cause is the loss of volume or fat in the face as we age. This fat that we all will lose in our face is like a tire losing air. The face can flatten and sag and look deflated and hollow. This, along with other anatomical changes can age us. Dr. Myint performs a very delicate unique procedure of moving the fat bags from the eyelid to the hollow area. This procedure of moving a patient's fat is called a fat transposition (or fat transfer). This procedure can be done by making the cut from inside the eyelid so there are no visible scars and no stitches. The results are fantastic.

"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 had a consultation with Dr. Myint this morning. He is an oculo facial plastic surgeon. His office is located in Nevada Eye Physicians, an ophthalmology practice -- which is indeed one of Dr. Myint's expertise areas with respect to plastic surgery. The glass door entering into the suite's waiting room clearly has his name displayed. I checked in with the receptionist. Minutes later I was greeted by one of Dr. Myint's assistants and escorted into one of the practice's exam rooms--similar to any other medical practice exam room.I was clearly impressed with Dr. Myint's knowledge, his detailed explanations, and his overall patient demeanor in terms of listening/answering questions. His staff is friendly and definitely service oriented. My experience rated 5's in all aspects that are important to me. Office aesthetics is not one of those.Dr. Myint won my trust by his knowledge and "bedside manner." His support staff is first class as well. "- K.M. / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2022

"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!"- C. / RealSelf / Dec 19, 2021
