Surgery.Org Gets a Facelift
New York, NY (December 21, 2009) - The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) recently launched their fully revamped website, www.surgery.org. The new and improved web site has been overhauled with the preservation of core content and features, including useful social media networking tools such as – YouTube, Facebook and Twitter to keep the aesthetic plastic surgery community connected all in one spot – surgery.org.
New features to the website include a newly structured Find a Plastic Surgeon locator which has been built to help the public find a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon. Prospective patients can search by doctor’s name, zip code, city and/or state as well as by procedure.
Staying Connected using YouTube, Twitter and Facebook
The Society’s new website makes it easy to stay connected to the Aesthetic Society’s social media networks through their Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages – www.surgery.org/socialmedia. ASAPSmedia Twitter connects members of the media with ASAPS spokespersons for cosmetic surgery stories and allows followers to receive the up-to-the-minute updates and news about the Society.
The Aesthetic Society’s YouTube Channel - www.surgery.org/videos allows people to view the latest plastic surgery videos and to subscribe to the Aesthetic Society Channel, including the three part series titled “Real People. Real Surgery. Breast Augmentation.” These videos were developed to help patients make an informed decision about plastic surgery and safely achieve a satisfied outcome when considering breast surgery
These online gateways are one more way the Aesthetic Society is reaching out to the public in order to aid in patient safety education. The Aesthetic Society tweets and Facebook posts make it easy to stay abreast of plastic surgery industry news, events, videos, and the latest about Aesthetic Society's annual meeting and other co-sponsored events.
The site’s new social media platform will provide rich opportunities for deploying new features such as blogs, wiki's, and an upcoming web channel in the near future.
As a one stop media hub, the new website has enormous patient safety benefits as an online portal of relevant, current and accurate procedural information, new before and after photos, additional plastic surgeon listings with Enhanced Practice Profiles, added videos and a new consumer e-newsletter regarding popular hot topics, trends and tips.
