Revisional Eyelid Lift Reviews
"I am a little more than 2 weeks post op for a brow lift done by Dr Myint. I am thrilled. I was out and about 4 days after surgery with some slight bruising around my eyes, but easily covered with light makeup. This surpassed my expectations. Dr Myint is professional, personable and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend him and his staff."- K.M. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2019
"I love this man! I had ptosis right eye. Insurance covered most of it. He was a CLASS ACT and very likable, from start to finish and will be the same for you. Even prepping for surgery, with my blood pressure off the charts taking hours of medical staffs time and then having to cancel and reschedule my surgery ($$$$ time/oppty) he was SO COOL about it it. Left a huge impression. Anyway, now with procedure complete, my eyes are absolutely exactly semetrical for the 1st time in 10 years. His nurses, Desiree, and the "musician with man bun lol" anesthesiologist were perfect for what i needed. I just cant give a big enough 10. P.S. He even played Lidacris in the OR for me and i know he died but it really helped me:) Dr. Myint is a perfectionist with a personality. Rare combo:) Choose him."- J.M. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020
"Dr. Myint is amazing! I have graves disease and had a thyroidectomy which left me for the past 10 years unable to close my eyes. I literally had to tape them shut when I went to bed. Over the couse of 10 years I have had 25 surgeries and surgical proceedures done by different plastic surgeons and they never fixed the problem. The exact cause of thyroid eye disease is not known but it is thought to be caused by an abnormal immune response that is targeted at the healthy tissues of the eye. None of the surgeons realized this and kept giving me more failed surgeries Well then I met Dr. Myint. This man fixed my eyes and now thank God I can go to sleep without taping my eyes to shut. He knew what the other surgeons did not know and was able to fix the problem. Now I know why they call him Dr. Majic Myint! If you have a thyroid dissorder or graves disease and have problems with your eyes this is the man to see!!! Thank You Dr. Myint and God bless You!"- K.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2019

"The Best! - April 9, 2019Re: Dr. [RS bleep]A. MyintDr. Myint is an excellent physician; He is highly skilled, artistic, caring, and personal. I was initially referred to him by my eye doctor for medical eyelid surgery. Another Dr. had done this surgery the prior year, but outcomes were not good and the sight problem was unchanged. Dr. Myint not only had to re do the procedure, but also had to undo what the prior surgeon had done. Outcomes were excellent this time. I now trusted Dr. Myint so much that I decided to have him perform a cosmetic procedure –a lower facelift. Again, the outcomes were excellent and were just as I hoped for. Dr. Myint performs outpatient medical procedures in Henderson through his office with Nevada Eye Physicians, and cosmetic procedures at Lane Smith Cosmetic Surgery Center /Summerlin. I highly recommend this Doctor for any facial/eye surgery you require-either medical, reconstructive, or cosmetic."- C. / RealSelf / May 05, 2019
Candidates 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.
revisional eyelid surgery
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.
after your procedure
After revision 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.
