NEW YORK, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Manhattan-based facial plastic surgeon Oleh Slupchynskyj, M.D. has developed breakthrough educational videos for YouTube, which are paving the way for how the medical community can inform consumers about plastic surgery do's and don'ts, risks and benefits.
YouTube, Inc. is a consumer media company for people to view and share original videos through the Web.
Created initially for patients who wanted to learn all aspects of and watch firsthand the most popular plastic surgery procedures before choosing to undergo treatment themselves, each video has received the highest of ratings since just being posted on YouTube. The videos include live surgery footage, patient testimonials plus before-and-after photos for facelift surgery, rhinoplasty or nose surgery, and lip augmentation.
"This is not a media or public relations campaign," reports Dr. Slupchynskyj, Director and Founder of The Aesthetic Facial Surgery Institute of New York and New Jersey. "Patient education is one of the guiding principles of my medical practice. I have chosen to harness the vast potential of user-generated content for educational purposes, so informed decisions can be made by patients with the goal of looking their best."
In addition to live surgery footage, Slupchynskyj not only discusses in depth but illustrates specific anatomy of the face being treated, explains what problem the surgical and/or non-surgical procedure corrects and how, its risks and benefits, who is a candidate and who is definitely not, what to expect during the procedure and recovery time.
"There is nothing worse than seeing an unhappy patient whose plastic surgery procedure was borne of the myriad misguided, non-physician/doctor-driven information available in print media, TV and online, which only serves to sell a story, not educate. On the other hand," Dr. Slupchynskyj said, "there is no greater satisfaction than seeing a happy patient whose goal of looking their best has been achieved, but this begins first with selecting a Dr. specializing in your area of interest and then absolutely making sure you have all the same detailed procedural information, photos and surgery footage, all of which I include in my educational videos. I believe this is the only way for patients to truly make an informed decision which ensures a positive and successful surgical outcome."
