This Plastic Surgeon Broadcasts His Procedures On Snapchat - And THOUSANDS Are Tuning In

May 01, 2015 1 min read

Dr. Michael Salzhauer, is a Miami-based plastic surgeon. Salzhauer's Snapchat name, TheRealDrMiami, is where he broadcasts his surgeries daily to around 100,000+ people.

“This is the reality of plastic surgery in Miami today and I want people to see it,” he told BuzzFeed News.

After having his 90k Instagram account removed a few months ago, his 15-year-old daughter introduced him to Snapchat. The next day Salzhauer signed up for the social network and more than 2,000 people tuned in to see him do routine cosmetic surgeries like liposuction, tummy tucks, and butt lifts.

 Now, the plastic surgeon gets 50 times as many viewers tuning in for his gruesome surgery scenes and says his business has increased from booking 15–20 appointments a day to around 80–100.  He’s also hired two full-time employees to run his social media accounts, jobs that include filming a few minutes of each surgery and answering viewer questions. He is fully booked through July 2016.

Yes, the patients sign a consent form before being Snapchatted.

WARNING! VERY GRAPHIC PHOTOS - continue at own risk!
 

Of course, his Instagram is back and going strong - where he shows off his patients’ results to roughly 125,000 followers.

Salzhauer thinks seeing the before-and-after pictures on the networks helps people considering plastic surgery feel like they can trust him.

Though many of the chats feature graphic surgical moments, together they often feel like a reality show, featuring monologues from Salzhauer on his home life as he walks to work, chats with his employees and even their playlist at the office.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
