Have you been considering plastic surgery to improve your appearance? Maybe you’ve seen what a rhinoplasty, or nose job, did for your friend’s unsightly large nose, or the age-defying effects of Botox®. Now it might be your turn to take the leap into cosmetic enhancement.

The latest and most up-to-date way to learn more about plastic surgery is social media! Before diving deeper, it is important to state that social media information should never replace a consultation with your Brandon, Florida, plastic surgeon.

A study conducted by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) asked specialists about the actions of their patients. According to the results, 47% of patients who received plastic surgery, researched or consulted social media (Facebook or Twitter) before surgery, which was a 29% increase from the year before!

How to Use Social Media for Plastic Surgery

Facebook or Twitter has made it easier for patients to track down a plastic surgeon’s website or patient education. It also makes actual patient reviews readily available to determine which surgeon has the best reputation throughout the area. Finally, it may open networking capabilities with patients in Lakeland, FL, and ask their personal experience of plastic surgery.

On the flip side, plastic surgeons also utilize social media to build reputation and customer base. In addition to their personal website, social media provides more access to contact or connect with a plastic surgeon, view before and after’s, and learn more about the procedures or specials they’re currently offering.

Although social media is helpful for initial education about plastic surgery, many professionals still urge caution when researching procedures. There is a lot of misinformation on the Internet, and the best way to avoid that is seeking a plastic surgeon who is board-certified and scheduling a consultation.

During this meeting, you can learn more information than many hours on the web. This is due to your plastic surgeon tailoring the cosmetic procedure, such as breast augmentation, to your specific goals and desires. You also have the opportunity to ask real-time questions on any procedure, what results you can expect, and how much it will cost.

Although social media is a great stepping tool to find out more about plastic surgery, there is no replacement for a one-on-one consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon near Riverview, FL. Contact Brandon Plastic Surgery today to schedule yours!
