YouTube® - A Growing Way to Learn about Cosmetic Surgery

Newsletter 06 2012

Of all the trends seen with our patients during the past few years, perhaps the most significant has been the growing use of the internet for researching plastic surgeons and the procedures in which they specialize. While our websites- in particular,, and - with over one million visitors per year have remained consistently strong sources for new patient referrals, this past year has seen YouTube® also become a valuable web resource for our patients.

Proving that the founders of Google were pretty smart in purchasing the site, YouTube® is the internet's second most popular search engine, trailing only-you guessed it-Google. It has proven to be an invaluable resource for patients to learn about all of the options when it comes to specific surgeries and surgeons. Recognizing the value of prospective patients having a place where they can watch videos of actual patients, Dr. Epstein began uploading his own videos several years ago, and now has over 370 of them up on the site. These videos include those that feature patients immediately after a hair transplant procedure, others showing results of a surgical hairline advancement procedure, and still others showing long term results. Almost weekly, new videos are uploaded, providing patients with virtually unlimited opportunities to learn about any hair procedure they are considering.

These YouTube® videos are the next best thing to actually meeting with Dr. Epstein and his patients. In their unedited form, they provide an excellent opportunity for individuals to "judge" the surgical outcomes, and to appreciate the patient-doctor relationship Dr. Epstein develops with his patients. So, whether you are considering a hair transplant procedure, an eyebrow restoration, or something else, your search is no longer complete without a visit to YouTube®.
