Revisional Eyelid Lift Reviews
"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 been experiencing self esteem issues due to my puffy eyes for over 5 years and decided to do something about it. I researched a lot of Doctors and found that Dr. Myint was the one that specialized in under eye Fat Transfer. I set up an appointment for my consultation and decided to go for it. I had my surgery 10 days ago and I can already see a difference in my appearance even with the swelling. I am looking forward in seeing the results in the upcoming months. Thank you Dr. Myint you are amazing !!!"- B.M. / Google / Jul 22, 2021
"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!"- L.C. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
"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."- R.S. / Google / Jul 29, 2021
"Had Ptosis surgery, I was absolutely terrified. Dr. Myint and his staff were fantastic, had no pain or any discomfort really, a little bruising but not bad at all! My whole experience was great! I highly recommend Dr. Myint he did a great job. Many thanks again Dr. Myint"- J. / Healthgrades / Jul 27, 2022
Am I A Good Candidate for A revisional eyelid lift?
Men and women alike may be ideal candidates for revisional eyelid surgery if they're unhappy with the results of their initial blepharoplasty. They may also consider this procedure to maintain their outcomes from an eyelid lift that was performed ten or more years prior. Not all revisional eyelid lifts are performed due to surgeon error, and during your consultation with Dr. Myint, he can evaluate your concerns to determine if revision surgery is your best option.
How Is revisional eyelid Lift surgery Performed?
Revisional eyelid surgery is performed at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas in one of our AAAASF-accredited operating rooms. Depending on whether the upper, lower, or both eyelids are being addressed, blepharoplasty revision can take up to three hours to complete. Dr. Myint will use various techniques to correct insufficient tissue removal, tissue shortage from overcorrection, and unsightly scarring in order to achieve a more natural contour to the eyelids.
WHat Should I Expect After Revisional Blepharoplasty?
After revisional blepharoplasty, you can expect to experience swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, but these symptoms are normal and should dissipate as you heal. Dr. Myint will remove your stitches after about 4 – 5 days and will set up another follow-up exam about one week after your surgery. During this time, we recommend that you refrain from strenuous activities so as to promote optimal healing. Any pain or inflammation can typically be eased with over-the-counter pain medication, and most patients are able to resume normal activities after about 7 – 10 days.
