BLEPHAROPLASTY 101 is the work of Dr. Frank Meronk, Jr., a graduate of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a fellowship-trained specialist in ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Over the course of a thirty-two year Southern California practice devoted to cosmetic oculoplastic surgery, Dr. Meronk performed tens of thousands of first-time and revision blepharoplasty procedures on patients from throughout the United States and abroad.

In the last decade, his interests focused most on newer methods of preserving and restoring rather than removing offending eyelid tissues ("tissue-sparing blepharoplasty") and the development of more advanced methods of treating severe post-blepharoplasty hollowness with particulate orbital fat grafting.

Dr. Meronk's commitment to online patient medical education began in 1999 with the launch of the Insider's Guide to Blepharoplasty, the Internet's most comprehensive learning site fully devoted to cosmetic eyelid surgery and the forerunner to Blepharoplasty 101.

Today's resource remains the "gold standard" for the public seeking an accessible but effective means to self-educate on this very popular sub-specialty topic. It is accessed widely by both patients and eyelid surgeons from around the world.

Now retired, Dr. Meronk continues to monitor developments in the field and update this site.
