As reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), nearly a quarter million more cosmetic procedures were performed in 2018 than in 2017. While this is not a new trend, the consumer’s mindset is not necessarily about changing the way they look. Rather, it’s about becoming their best self—by looking the same, yet better.
In any case, when consumers choose a plastic surgeon, they want peace of mind regarding the provider’s medical standing. They want clarity on what procedures are offered and what procedures are most often performed. Moreover, they want confidence in the level of patient satisfaction and a commitment to transparency. These values represent the high consumer trust standards of the RealSelf Network, an exclusive members-only community of top-level doctors.
Recently, Dr. Gary Linkov of City Facial Plastics became RealSelf verified, joining the distinguished network that only 3% of doctors get to be part of.
