Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 9, 2007
My Cosmetic Surgery Advisor announces the launch of its newly revised consumer advocacy website, http://www.MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org. The new site provides state-of-the-art navigation capabilities, improved usability, live eChat with personal advisors on cosmetic surgery procedures, and animated 3-D procedures so consumers can become better educated prior to going under the knife.
According to a February 2007 Harris Interactive poll, 40% of cosmetic surgery patients wished they had done more research prior to their procedure--Rather amazing, since, by definition, all felt the need to commence their surgeries.
Between 66% to 78% of "cosmetic surgeons" did not meet MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org's minimum medical education requirements, as any licensed medical doctor in the US and dentists with little or no further training in 15 states (CA and NY pending), can and often do proclaim themselves "board certified cosmetic surgeons."
MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org is dedicated to providing the consumer free factual resources and personal guidance with:
- Information regarding cosmetic surgery options and procedures
- Background information on any surgeon in your area
- Evaluations on top surgeons who meet your specific needs and our stringent standards (medical education, training, civil, criminal (including DUI's), and malpractice checks.
MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org began as a grass roots effort by concerned individuals to help the public become better educated, learn Insider's Secrets, and stop bad cosmetic surgery. MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org does not advocate or promote elective cosmetic surgery. However, since its inception in 2006, MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org has helped countless women and men who have chosen to enhance themselves to learn more about their desired cosmetic procedure as well as recommend surgeons who have met MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org's stringent screening criteria.
Live counselors are available via toll free phone calls or web-based eChat to conveniently and confidentially answer questions regarding cosmetic surgery procedures. Over 11 million elective cosmetic procedures were performed by board certified doctors in 2006, while total cosmetic procedures are estimated to total well over 30 million in 2006. Up to 80% of "cosmetic surgeons" in certain print publications, web referral companies, and telephone directories do not meet MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org's medical education requirements, let alone extensive background checks.
MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org is based in Los Angeles, CA, and operates in Dallas-Fort Worth and Los Angeles. Due to different state and local laws, as well as the extensive screening involved, surgeons outside of these areas have yet to be evaluated by MyCosmeticSurgeryAdvisor.org.
