Plastic Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
How Can I Research a Cosmetic Treatment to Find out if It Really Works?
Where should prospective patients look to find scientific, objective validation of a procedure? No one who stands to benefit financially from offering a treatment will admit that it doesn't work. Sadly, a site like realself.com is likely to be padded with shill reviews, and photos are very easily doctored. Doctors will only refer you to their most satisfied patients. Besides asking a reference librarian, which is probably the way to go, do you have any suggestions?
