How to Combat Misinformation About Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery Information (and Misinformation)

It’s never been easier to gain access to large volumes of plastic surgery information online about all types of cosmetic procedures.

Unfortunately, there is also an abundance of inaccurate blog posts, videos, and “reports”.

Evaluating Plastic Surgery Options

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.

How to Choose the Right Surgeon

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.
