Social media is everywhere. People use it to share their life stories, review their experiences with restaurants and hotels, share their vacation snaps, talk about the do’s and dont’s of life, listen to the amp, and more. Social media, in a sense, offers a huge resource for people want to know about other people’s experiences on just about anything and that is something to be celebrated. Sono Bello reviews the impact social media has had on people’s experiences with plastic surgery, and they are happy to report on new developments.
Sono Bello Reviews Impact of Social Media on Plastic Surgery
Recently, a patient at Sono Bello’s Bellevue, WA clinic explained how she had used social media to prepare herself for plastic surgery. She found that Facebook groups had been the most helpful, and that blogging helped significantly as well, particularly when other people left comments on her musings. Essentially, she had wanted to complete a tummy tuck and was quite anxious about the entire process.
The lady in question had started by asking her own followers on Facebook and Twitter whether they thought her having a tummy tuck was a good idea or not and why. The discussion that followed was fascinating and showed arguments from both side of the coin. They ranged from people saying she should avoid it because she was beautiful just the way she was, to those saying they would consider joining her if her results worked out.
The latter comments encouraged her to start writing about her experience. She had booked in as a patient with Sono Bello by then, and they were equally keen to work on her project. Essentially, she chronicled her experience every step of the way, documenting her entire journey through text and images. People were able to see her procedure unfold and watch her go through her transformation.
Of particular interest is that all this took place through social media. There have long been programs such as Extreme Makeover, showing people who have a full body transformation over the course of several weeks or month. But this was the first time that someone did not compress all those weeks in a single half hour program. It documented each stage, day by day, so people could truly get an insight into what they could expect after the procedure.
Sono Bello, like most other plastic surgery clinics, always posts before and after images of their various patients, with their consent, who wish to review how well their procedure went. However, using social media together with the patient in question was a much more telling experience for them. Plastic surgery is still surgery and that means there are hard parts involved in it as well, and that not every day will be a good day for a recovering patient. But mainly, the patient’s review showed them that they completed the procedure as expected and it showed them – and everyone else – the positive impact that plastic surgery can have on someone.
