A 43-year-old member asked:

can you let me know how many times can you perform blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery) on someone?

Less than 100: Certainly I am joking and this is not a joking matter. A blepharoplasty can be performed in the upper or lower eyelid and may vary in extent. Therefore there is no consistent answer. When performed for reconstructive purposes, it may be performed several times but it is unlikeky that someone would really undergo more than 3 in most normal circumstances.
Dr. Thomas Fiala
Plastic Surgery 33 years experience
Most people: Only need it done once. Sometimes a minor secondary revision may be beneficial after a number of years have passed.
Dr. Lara Devgan
Plastic Surgery 14 years experience
Depends: Usually just once, but occasionally people need revision operations for recurrent saggy skin or uncorrected fat bulges.
Dr. Tom Pousti
Specializes in Plastic Surgery
Rarely Necessary: Repeat blepharoplasty surgery is rarely necessary. Although no facial rejuvenation surgery results “lasts forever”, blepharoplasty surgical results often last for decades. Repeat blepharoplasty surgery, if considered, should be performed very judiciously in order to avoid complications.

A 33-year-old member asked:

How many bowel movements should my infant have?

3 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Adam Naddelman
Pediatrics 24 years experience
Varies: The amount of bowel movements an infant can have varies tremendously. It can be every few hours, once a day, every few days, or even once a week. The important thing is to speak to your pediatrician if he/she is very uncomfortable when passing a stool, if the stool is very hard, or if there is a sudden and dramatic change in her bowel movements.

How many times per day should I have my baby do "tummy time"?

Dr. Evelyn Hurvitz
Pediatrics 37 years experience
Often: The more "tummy time" your baby gets, the rounder her head will be and the easier it will be for her to learn to roll, sit and crawl. Tummy time - as much as possible!

Peristomal wound: When i see a patient who has difficulties with peristomal wound or pain, i generally try to ascertain cause. Usually, if there is no underlying pathology, the skin is irritated by the adhesive. Using a hydrocolloid dressing beneath the adhesive may reduce the difficulties.
