Learn About Modern Plastic Surgery in a New Way!

Plastic surgery is a competitive and complicated field. This can make it challenging for patients who want to know more and do a little bit of independent research. After all, the internet is replete with information, but much of it ranges from too technical to understand on the one hand to simply unreliable on the other. That can be frustrating for patients and surgeons alike, especially since patient satisfaction relies so much on managing expectations.

Modern Plastic Surgery is designed to help you discuss about plastic surgery in a new way! If you’re a surgeon, you’ll be able to describe your techniques and methods directly to possible patients. Plastic surgery is a field that innovates often, and at Modern Plastic Surgery, you’ll be able to discuss those innovations directly with fans of cosmetic and plastic surgery.

Meet Our Editorial Staff

Modern Plastic Surgeon is captained by two industry content experts! Together, Dan Voltz and Nick Engebretson have over twenty years of experience helping surgeons communicate with their patients. The vast majority of this experience has been in a marketing capacity, as well as through other projects such as Modern Plastic Surgeon.

Both Dan and Nick have spent many years working in the plastic and cosmetic surgery marketing field, helping surgeons connect with patients in a wide variety of settings. Modern Plastic Surgeon arose, in part, because we saw that there was a need for surgeons to have more access to patients in a more casual setting.

Our editorial staff works hard to make sure each and every entry on Modern Plastic Surgeon is accurate, relevant, and up to date.

How Does Modern Plastic Surgery Work?

Candidates for plastic surgery are famous for doing their homework. If you’ve been thinking about liposuction, for example, it’s likely that you’ve been doing some of your own research on the topic. To be sure, Modern Plastic Surgeon is not taking the place of peer reviewed journals as a venue for publishing research and scholarship. Rather, we aim to be venue where you can discuss what makes you unique and innovative directly with patients.

After all, scholarly journals are directed at your peers. They tend to be especially complex (as they should be–if your research needs to be duplicated, it also needs to be technically precise). That kind of depth can become confusing to a patient, for obvious reasons. But when you explain your innovations on Modern Plastic Surgeon, you can explain your techniques in a way that’s easy to grasp for plastic surgery candidates and fan alike.

The idea here is to encourage communication between patients and surgeons. Patients can ask questions and surgeons can directly answer those questions. Likewise, surgeons can present information they might think is either useful or interesting directly to patients.

Two Ways to Learn

At Modern Plastic Surgeon, we also understand that not everyone wants to learn in the same way. Some plastic surgery enthusiasts may want to direct questions to surgeons themselves. But some candidates simply aren’t ready for that–they want a more low key approach. That’s why we offer a substantial library of well-researched, well-informed information for interested parties to look at. We do this in two ways:

  • Procedure Pages: These pages will discuss particular procedures in detail. If you want to know more about tummy tuck, broadly speaking, this is the place to do it. These pages will be expanded over time to include the most up to date and in-depth information.
  • Article Pages: If you want information on some of the latest trends and news in the world of plastic surgery, we will often write about those top stories on our blog. We make sure these articles are well-researched and timely, bringing you the most important plastic surgery stories from around the world.

Something for Everyone

Ultimately, our goal at Modern Plastic Surgeon is to help everyone learn a little bit more about plastic surgery. Certainly, plastic surgery as a profession and as a service has a place in the American imagination. But that image of plastic surgery isn’t always accurate.

At Modern Plastic Surgeon, we offer a little bit of something for everyone–but that something is based in reality. From surgeons writing about their most effective techniques to patients sharing their own stories of transformations, Modern Plastic Surgeon can keep you up to date on what’s happening in the ever-changing, ever-innovating world of plastic surgery.
