How to Combat Misinformation About Plastic Surgery
- Posted on: Dec 12 2016
It’s never been easier to gain access to large volumes of information online about cosmetic surgery procedures. Unfortunately, there is also an abundance of inaccurate blog posts, videos, and “reports”.
All too often, unscrupulous businesses make fraudulent claims using slick marketing materials about procedures that may not get the results that patients want. This makes it incredibly challenging for patients to evaluate their options and to receive candid advice about how best to achieve their beauty goals.
Our desire is to help patients sort through the bad information to make an informed decision about both non-invasive and surgical procedures to get the best results possible.
In a recent Plastic Surgery Channel video, Dr. Richard Restifo and his colleague Dr. Kevin Smith discussed how patients can combat misinformation and stray from unqualified practitioners who may be deceptive about their experience with procedures.
