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

T1000 on 17 Mar 2010 at 6:06pm

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:
