Samia Gore began her plastic surgery journey when she started flying to Dominican Republic a couple years back to get procedures. When she began, she had no idea of the many do’s and don’ts that are associated with going under the knife. This collection of experiences led her to create an online community where women can discuss cosmetic surgery.

The online space allows these women to discuss everything from advice on doctors to tips on how to prepare for procedures. She shares her wealth of knowledge with the larger community as the author of Plastica, Your Step-by-Step Plastic Surgery Guide. Today, Gore has grown the #PlasticPositive community into 120K followers. Rolling out spoke with Gore about her influential development and impact on the plastic surgery community.
