Need eyelid help? Check out Oculoplastic surgeons (ASOPRS) on RealSelf

Last month over 150,000 visitors to RealSelf sought information about eyelid surgery, seeking everything from expert opinion about fixes for drooping eyelids to real patient testimonials about blepharoplasty surgery.

Many of the questions related to eyelid problems are addressed within our community by specialists in eyelid surgery, Asian blepharoplasty, and other eye and facial procedures, called Oculoplastic Surgeons. Many of these doctors belong to a highly selective and respected medical organization called ASOPRS (or, the American Society for Opthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery). ASOPRS members are trained specifically in plastic surgery of the eyes, eyelids and surrounding structures.

We're delighted to report that the ASOPRS is now a RealSelf partner. Through the ASOPRS-RealSelf partnership, Oculoplastic Surgeons are joining for free, and getting involved in responding to important eyelid surgery questions and related topics.

You'll know a doctor is an ASOPRS member whenever you see the logo:

Is it wise to combine two different surgeries of the eye in one surgery? I am planning to have (1) fat grafting to upper eyelids and (2) ectropion repair (using TarSys spacer in one eye) to both lower lids. I have read that having so much done at once could compromise the results due to excessive swelling. Can someone please comment?
Can you help me find a good surgeon that can do me an upper eyelid surgery here in the Philippines? Someone who has lots of experiences in the said surgery and has the best result or outcome after the surgery. Thanks for the help. It will greatly be appreciated.
I am looking for a surgeon that I can trust to do upper and lower eyelid surgery. I would appreciate recomendations from anyone who had this surgery done in New York city. I've had consultations from three plastic surgeons, but very unsure who I can trust with good results. I cann't find anyone who had this done, and the name of the surgeons who successfull performed this type of surgery. Looking forward to your responses.
Reply is a great place to start. You can read reviews from other local RealSelfers (lower right corner) and contact doctors as well.

Hope this helps and good luck in your search!
