People searching for a plastic surgeon should look beyond social media, says a Northwestern University Study. Researchers from the university found that board-certified plastic surgeons posted only 17.8 percent of the 1.8 billion plastic surgery-related posts on Instagram.
For Safety's Sake
The researchers investigated 21 of the most popular hashtags related to plastic surgery, including #plasticsurgery, #facelift and #liposuction.
While board-certified plastic surgeons posted only 17.8 percent of content, the remaining 82.2 percent came from otolaryngologists, dermatologists, general practitioners, general surgeons and dentists, as well as salons, spas and aestheticians.
