The way patients get information on plastic surgery is undergoing evolution.

Years ago, it was word of mouth or a referral from your family doctor. Then advertising hit the airwaves and now we have the internet.

A recent survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgeons shows a whopping 42% of prospective patients get their information from social media sites such as Facebook.

It is amazing to me, as a Fort Myers Plastic Surgeon, how popular and powerful the social media are becoming. Some of my patients spend 1-2 hours a day on social media sites.

I guess the concern I would express – don’t rely of this ALONE to make your decision on who to go to for your cosmetic surgery.

That said, if Facebook is one of your favorite places to research, you'll find me at You can "like" me there and receive my informative, and occasionally amusing message on your newsfeed.

Technology has been changing fast, and that is evident when we have a general check-up with our doctors. Reservations and inquiries are done faster now that we have the internet. Even sharing information and research can be done now with just a click on the mouse.
