Many of you may know about RealSelf, the groundbreaking website that allows patients and physicians to engage thoughtfully on the social Web without creating patient-doctor relationships. It’s a vital education resource used by many of my Los Angeles and Beverly Hills plastic surgery patients. That’s why I’m delighted to receive a RealSelf 100 Award, recognizing my commitment to patient education through social media.

I’ve been an advocate of Web-based educational outreach since first launching my Marina Plastic Surgery website. I’ve continued those efforts through social media, including this blog. On RealSelf, millions of consumers get access to expert information about cosmetic procedures and treatments. I’m proud that out of 5,000 board-certified specialists, I’m among 100 honored as top social media influencers. I respond to many of the thousands of questions asked each month by RealSelf visitors, who can then make confident decisions about cosmetic surgery and medicine.
