The world of plastic surgery is undergoing its own kind of facelift — of the social media kind.
Today, there’s a small yet growing wave of surgeons who are sharing their surgeries with millions of viewers on social media in an effort to knock down the final frontier of privacy and show the world what really happens in the operating room.
In this episode of My Life Online, we meet Dr. Matthew Schulman, one of Snapchat’s most popular plastic surgeons and the man behind the snapchat account @nycplasticsurg.
We join him in the operating room as he broadcasts a tummy tuck surgery in order to demystify the procedure to his millions of followers.
