Rhinoplasty and Social Media

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Did you know there is a rise in social media and requests for Rhinoplasty, and I am not at all surprised. Living in Palm Beach County, cosmetic surgery, whether medically necessary or not, is not at all uncommon. I would say most everyone I know has either had something 'done' or they definitely know someone who has... in fact, in our family, one of the young ladies just had an elective procedure. Her recovery time was amazingly fast, and she looks and feels great. No one in the family thought she needed to alter or tweak anything at all, but we respect her and her wishes to do whatever it is/was she feels/felt the need to have done. I asked her if she was nervous before she went in, and she assured me that she was not. She had done her homework and then some, starting online by doing an exhaustive search of surgeons in her area, paying particular attention to their credentials, first and foremost of course, and then their customer ratings. In today's day and age, if something goes amiss in a surgery, or with a surgeon, customers have no qualms at all about going to the Internet and social media to air their griefs. Likewise, they also seem very willing to pass out accolades if a job was well done.


Of course with any surgery at all, but most especially something as serious as Rhinoplasty, you'll want to rely on more than social media and online presence/reviews to select your doctor, but it really is a good start. If you come across a doctor who has all good ratings on a site that is public (not their own), it gives you a solid place to start and then you can do a more in-depth follow up. Likewise, if you come across a surgeon with all negative, or many negative reviews, there is probably a reason for it, and it's a good idea to steer clear and cross them off of your list. It saves you time too, because you don't even have to leave your house to condense your list of possibilities.

Checking the social media sites also seems to be a popular way for prospective clients to check out the doctors, ask questions, and/or get in touch with someone in the office.  AND just like with the aforementioned review sites, people who are happy or not at all happy tend to flock to social media pages to gush or gripe (that double-edged sword of social media being great or not-so-great for your business), so I would definitely recommend at least giving the social media sites a quick visit.

Just a note while I'm on the subject: If it is teen Rhinoplasty that is being considered (we have a family member who is a teen, and her lifelong doctor is suggesting this type of surgery for reasons that are not cosmetic), you can check the above sources to start your search, but be sure to weigh in with your child's pediatrician or doctor as well.

In the end, being comfortable with the doctor you have chosen will play a big role in the overall satisfaction of the entire process, From initial search, to surgery, to the recuperation and follow-up times, taking your time to ensure you've made the best decision for you, is vital. A good way to get the ball rolling, as with most things these days, is by heading online and going to social media.

Discussion Question: Would you consult social media as a part of your ongoing investigation for researching cosmetic surgery/surgeons?

  1. I would never, but that's just me. I need to meet the doctor for myself and preferably get personal references.

  2. I had a sinoplasty, which is much different, but still around the nose, but all internal. The surgery was actually painless and fixed almost all of the problems that I was having. I didn't really check online though, I just went by a referral that I was given from my doctor.

  3. I think I would check a few different social media sites and especially of the surgeon I would be using. Just to see other results and reviews.

  4. With everyone wanting to be "instagram famous" or the next social media star, it's no wonder cosmetic surgery is on the rise. I won't say that I won't ever consider getting a little lift of something in the future, but for now, I'm happy with where I stand.

  6. I don't trust social media so much nowadays, except I know the site owner. For all you know, they could be paid well to advertise. But like you said, it's a good start. I'm not going to ever consider surgery unless for medical reasons even though I have a big bulbous nose lol

  9. I respect anyone who have undergone a cosmetic surgery and to those who are seeking. We all want to improve our appearances so this is nice but really expensive.

  10. A surgery like this is serious and to do your research before jumping into it even if its for cosmetic or health related can be helpful.

  11. There are many ways to check out a doctor before you do a procedure. I'm happy about that too. I've had a couple of things done and I was very happy with the outcome.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  13. I'd look to see what was being said for things, no matter what it was, but trust social media haha never. I think I'm safe from any nip and tuck though.

  14. I don't think I'd ever go through this. If I did, I'd definitely research!

  15. I've never gone through this kind of surgery and I seriously doubt I ever will. However, this is valuable information just the same.

  16. I don't see myself getting plastic surgery, but follow many people who have and I completely respect their decision.

  17. While I've never considered elective surgery of any kind, I suppose I would start with social media. I agree it's a great starting point considering many people share good and bad experiences so often, no matter what it's regarding. But I'd definitely still do some more in-depth research afterward.

  18. I don't think I could. I have had enough surgeries in my life to know they are not fun.

  19. I think I'd read reviews and blog experiences to choose the doctors for initial consultations, but ultimate choice would depend on face-to-face consultations

  20. I was also suggested a rhinoplasty by my doctor because I have troubles breathing normally due to an old untreated cold which affected the inside of my nose. However, I was so scared of it that I decided against it.

    Surgery was so dangerous and I don't see myself doing a surgery.

  22. Everyone has their own opinions and choices and i respect them. But I will never ever do such surgeries , am happy with whatever god has given me and am not gonna change that just to please the world.

  23. Well, I've never researched plastic surgery before, but no, I can't see myself giving much stock to social media in the search. I'm more of a "ask my doctor for a recommendation" kinda girl.

  24. I don't understand why someone would do this unless it was medically necessary, but that is just me. I know people handle things in different ways.

  25. Cosmetic op is not for me but i do respect those that wish to have it. Social media is a great way to research about your doctor or for reviews on which to choose, i would prefer to go by reccomendation from friends etcc though

  26. I'd go to a doctor. I keep saying that I'm getting a nose job done soon. I have a really bad deviated septum and my sinuses are full of polyps. That would explain all the headaches I've gotten through the years. I was born with allergies and asthma, so not being able to breathe was just something that I thought was more allergies and asthma. I just hope they don't hit my eye, or the bone by my brain. Then I could get meningitis or loose eyesight. :(

  27. This is interesting. I did not know. I personally would not do this. But I do feel each person is entitled to seek their wishes.
