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
"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."- J.M / Office Visit / Feb 16, 2023

"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

Am I A Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Blepharoplasty?
Lower blepharoplasty with fat transfer is a cosmetic surgery that is sought out by both men and women. During the initial consult, treatment options will be provided by Dr. Myint based on your areas of concern that need to be addressed. Generally, ideal candidates have a hollow area below the bottom eyelid. For a more awake look, lower blepharoplasty with fat transfer may be the right surgery for you. If you have bags and a hollow appearance under the eyes, lower blepharoplasty can treat this to provide you with a more youthful, voluminous facial appearance.
What can I expect after a blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty can last up to two hours considering whether both eyes or one is treated. After this outpatient surgery, you should plan a few days to rest and avoid strenuous activities. The recovery involves some swelling and bruising for 1-2 weeks. The tape on the eyelid will be removed in few days. A cold compress can help reduce discomfort, swelling, and bruising. The results from eyelid surgery may last years, but even though they are long lasting, aging does not stop. To continue to enhance your surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery such as fillers, peels, and lasers can be paired to create a fresh appearance.
