I finally got the courage to go see Dr. Meronk after an exceptionally bad result on an upper/lower bleph in NYC. For years, I kept hoping the original botched surgery would somehow get better on it's own, but the look only worsened with time. The surgery was overdone, badly.

I interviewed several surgeons. Some were so heavy marketing. I needed the best of the best expert. This is serious surgery! As a nurse with advanced practice degree, I was very concerned about, and aware of the potential misstep with a revisional procedure.

Dr. Meronk and his staff were terrific. My situation was bad enough that a second surgery was necessary to remediate the upper lid damage and I am planning for a third surgery for the lower lid.

Dr. Meronk is an expert surgeon in an exceptionally difficult procedure. Could not have been more professional. If you're really serious about the surgery - check out the qualifications and experience that matter.

Dr. Meronk was realistic and fully explained things in a way that finally calmed me down. I was absolutely terrified of the possibility of worsening my problem. The surgeries I had have been gradual improvements. Nothing drastic. Just what I had hoped for.

Once you have a bad surgery, especially a bleph, you will never be the same. But now, I am more and more myself when I look in the mirror.

If you're looking for some BFF, go to a social network. If you're looking for a top notch surgeon. This is it.

Oh, and considering the number of patients over this many years, a lawsuit is just about inevitable. It's unfortunate, but there are predators out there just looking for reason to sue. There's always some risk to a procedure, (hence the consent form with all the risks listed) even with the best of the best. There's always a risk. . .

With Dr. Meronk, I know the odds are definitely in my favor for the best possible outcome. I hope to get my lower lid correction before he retires.

And if you're reading this - THANKS Dr. Meronk!!
