Local physician Dr. George Bitar is one of 500 doctors in the nation to receive the prestigious RealSelf 500 Award, out of nearly 13,000 board certified specialists with a presence on RealSelf—the leading online community helping people make confident choices in elective cosmetic procedures.
In a time when 1 in 4 U.S. adults share their health experiences on social media channels, the medical professionals that made the 2015 RealSelf 500 are recognized both for having an outstanding record of consumer feedback and for providing credible, valuable insights in response to consumer questions about elective cosmetic treatments, plastic surgery, dentistry and more.
Dr. Bitar is Founder and Medical Director of the Bitar Cosmetic Surgery Institute with offices in Fairfax and Manassas Virginia. He is board certified by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and performs a wide range of cosmetic procedures including rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, mommy makeovers, facelifts, liposuction and post weight loss body contouring. He has been a plastic surgery practitioner for over 14 years.
“We believe that our best patients are well informed and do their research prior to scheduling a consultation,” said Dr. Bitar. “RealSelf is an excellent resource for patients to watch videos, ask questions, and read about other peoples experiences, giving them the information they need to make better and more informed decision about their medical care.”
“In 2015, these 500 doctors collectively impacted tens of millions of consumers, with nearly 30% of our total doctor content posted by this relatively small group,” said Tom Seery, RealSelf founder and CEO. “When I started RealSelf, many doctors questioned why they should ‘give away’ their expertise ‘for free’ on the web. Now, eight years later — and with over one million doctor answers on our platform — we are proud of the standard this select group has set. They're leading the way by empowering millions of consumers to gain access to the information they need to make smart and confident health and beauty decisions.”
Dr. Bitar is an expert contributor to RealSelf, and to date has posted 1,000 answers to questions on RealSelf. Each month people from all over world ask important aesthetic-related questions.
