SEATTLE, March 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- RealSelf, the leading online community helping people make confident choices in elective cosmetic procedures, today revealed its list of the top 100 social media influencers in cosmetic medicine.
In a time when one in five US women plan to pursue a cosmetic procedure, the medical professionals that made the annual RealSelf 100 list are recognized both for having an outstanding record of positive consumer feedback and for providing unique, valuable insights that can't typically be found on the social web. The doctors who made the list are dedicated to empowering millions of consumers to gain access to information they need to make smart, confident health and beauty choices.
"In 2014, this group of doctors collectively spent more than 3,300 hours—or 140 days—posting answers and sharing expert insights with the RealSelf community," said Tom Seery, Founder/CEO of RealSelf. "For all 100 of these doctors, time is extremely valuable, yet they all make a commitment to engaging online consumers in order to build trust and help people make better decisions about potential changes to their body, face and smile."
The RealSelf 100 Award is granted to physicians who demonstrate an enduring commitment to patient education and positive patient outcomes as reflected in patient reviews posted to RealSelf. The full list of awarded doctors is available at http://www.realself.com/RS100.
Since its founding in 2006, RealSelf has created the world's largest community for learning and sharing information about cosmetic surgery, dermatology, dentistry, and other elective treatments. Our extensive collections of reviews, photos, videos and doctor Q&A make RealSelf the most trusted resource for those who are looking for help beyond the beauty counter. www.realself.com
