The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) is expanding its services to consumers through a new mechanism called Ask-a-Surgeon, a free online Question and Answer Forum. This new patient education service can be found by visiting surgery.org.
The new service allows consumers and plastic surgery patients to ask questions and quickly get answers from ASAPS members, all Board-certified Plastic Surgeons.
The Society's Ask-a-Surgeon feature is easy to navigate. The latest questions are continuously updated and answered by Aesthetic Society members. Visitors to the site have an opportunity to ask as many questions as they wish concerning topics on cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures and beauty-related issues. The Ask-a-Surgeon archives contain almost 500 of the most popular and frequently asked questions, and are also conveniently categorized by procedure.
Besides being able to ask questions and browse the Ask-a-Surgeon archive, visitors can access videos of Society member-surgeons that are easy-to-follow, engaging, and informative - http://www.surgery.org/consumers/ask-a-surgeon.
Ask-a-Surgeon can be found on Twitter – twitter.com/asaps and Facebook (facebook.com/AestheticSociety). The Facebook page has direct access to Ask-a-Surgeon and Find-a-Surgeon functions to further serve consumers’ educational needs.
In addition, those who submit questions also have the opportunity to subscribe to the organization’s consumer e-newsletter Beautiful Choices providing up-to-date news, trends and tips concerning plastic surgery topics of interest.
