The Author


The Insider's Guide to Blepharoplasty 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.

Launched in year 2000 as a modest five page offering, the website quickly grew in size and popularity to become the dominant educational resource for prospective patients as well as a generation of plastic and oculoplastic surgeons researching blepharoplasty on the Internet. An inspiration (and source of copied content!) for many surgeon websites that followed, the site remains unrivaled in focus, scope, depth, and candor.

A recognized authority on blepharoplasty, Dr. Meronk is best known for championing the use of tissue-sparing methods that favor a more natural appearing and safer result. He has performed many thousands of aesthetic and restorative eyelid operations on patients from throughout the United States and beyond, many of them seeking help after unsatisfactory surgery undertaken elsewhere.

Recently retired from a thirty year practice of cosmetic oculoplastic surgery in Southern California, Dr. Meronk continues to monitor developments in the field and update this educational resource on a regular basis.

This website is unaffiliated with any other surgeons or organizations. While some third-party ads may appear, 100% of revenue is donated to a worthy cause unrelated to cosmetic surgery.
