RealSelf.com is emerging as one of the most visited consumer information sites for plastic surgery procedures. RealSelf allows you to learn about procedures and ask question anonymously. Your questions are answered by Board Certified Physicians, including Board Certified Plastic Surgeons, like myself. While the answers cannot be as detailed as those provided by an in office consultation, it is a good place to find answers to many common questions.
Site sponsors include four prestigious plastic surgery profession societies, in which I am proud to be an active member. They include:
- The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS)
- The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)
- The American Society of Bariatric Plastic Surgeons (ASBPS)
- The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS)
I have recently increased by participation on the site and was awarded Gold Elite status for 2010, and multiple Top Doctor awards. Below are just a few. For 2011, I will have to go for Platinum.
All the questions I answer on ReaiSelf.com are also broadcast on my Twitter Feed. If you would like to receive these tweets, click Dr. Mele’s Twitter Page, or the Twitter logo on the top left of this page. You will also receive a tweet, and a link, each time a new post is added to the San Francisco Plastic Surgery Blog.
