In case you missed it, snap chatting surgery is a thing. If you are asking yourself what exactly is snapchat then you probably have no idea what this blog is all about. Let me fill you in.
Snapchat is the latest trend in social media. It allows users to post self-destructing messages, pictures and videos to individual users or to post them as a “snap story”.
Rated only behind Facebook as the most engaging social media platform, snapchat is attractive to surgeons who don’t enjoy the censorship from Facebook and Instagram.
We were first introduced to the world of snapchat surgery by the one and only Dr Miami (snapchat username: therealdrmiami). Famous for his love of trap music and big booties, Dr Miami has up to 1 million viewers tuning in to watch him snap his way through Monday.
Here in the land of Oz, popular Sydney Plastic Surgeon Dr Tavakoli (snapchat: Drtavakoli2) has taken the charge and opened up his doors into the operating theatre. From pre operative marking to patients follow ups in the clinic, Dr Tavakoli shares it all with the thousands of viewers who religiously tune in for their daily dose of Tav TV.
Taking a different approach, Hunter Plastic Surgery have also jumped on board with the snapchat phenomena opting to “show more of the vibe of our tribe”. Practice director, Amber Moncrieff says that don’t to live surgery because it is not their demographic but feels showing “behind the scenes content helps people understand who they are partnering with on their surgical journey.”
Hunter Plastic Surgery happen to be the biggest CoolSculpting provider in the Country so expect to see plenty of fat freezing on their snapchat story.
Another one of PSF very own surgeons, Dr Sam Cunneen is a fan of snap chatting his days in theatre but his snaps outside of the operating room are equally as entertaining.
Dr Cunneen is not afraid to show all parts of the surgery and regularly gives us an insight into the non cosmetic procedures that plastic and reconstructive surgeons perform. His recent snapchat surgery removing a melanoma from a male patients neck was graphic but educational. We certainly have been slip, slop slapping after that one Dr Sam !!!
If you are thinking about having cosmetic surgery definitely get on snapchat and take a look. The snaps are both educational and entertaining and can really help prepare patients for what to expect for their own procedures.
