The latest video in the #ItsNotAllTheSame social media campaign reminds patients to seek only doctors who are board certified and properly trained.

Board-certified Miami plastic surgeon, Adam J. Rubinstein, MD, FACS released his latest video, NewMeNow, on his YouTube and Instagram accounts, @drrubinstein and @plasticsurgerytruths. The video is part of the ongoing #ItsNotAllTheSame social media series.

The “tongue-in-cheek” Instagram series discusses controversial topics in plastic surgery in a humorous yet truthful way to educate people on how to make informed decisions. According to Rubinstein, the series is designed to make the point, with humor, that all plastic surgery is most definitely not the same. Through the series he reminds patients to seek the appropriate doctors who are board certified and properly trained to ensure great results and safety.

“I understand and appreciate how important looking good and feeling good about your appearance can be, however cheap fixes are not the right answer and convenience and cost will never take priority over good patient care,” says Rubinstein. “This segment reminds us to slow down and remember always that healthcare starts with good health practices.  “That does not mean mail order facelifts or breast implants,” says Rubinstein, “obviously nobody would order a breast augmentation by mail. The point is, do your homework, check out your surgeon’s credentials and track record, make safe choices. I launched the #ItsNotAllTheSame campaign because I am seeing too many people suffering after making questionable decisions when choosing their doctor, clinic or procedure.”

The series is designed to use humor as warning on ‘fast and cheap’ plastic surgery. With the pandemic still looming large, it is understandable that people are seeking a fast and easy way to look and feel their best.  The series #itsnotallthesame forces people to slow down and with a sense of humor, guides them to make the right choices when choosing plastic surgery procedures.

“The COVID-19 epidemic has changed everyone’s life around the world, and it is challenging time,” he adds. “We are trying to help people find a little humor, while learning about the importance of choosing properly when it comes to cosmetic surgery.”

Other episodes include “Drive Through Plastic Surgery” jokingly asks the question “Do You Want Fries with That?” This episode demonstrates how the pandemic has changed the way we do many things, and often not always for the best. Rubinstein was inspired by other doctors doing drive through Botox. “The idea of driving through a line to get injectables may sound convenient, during the pandemic, but it is just not good medicine.”

In another episode “Pilot This!” Rubinstein demonstrates how some things seem obvious while others not so much. In this episode, a boat captain is asked to pilot more than a boat.  From a boat to a plane, everyone knows #itsnotallthesame.  However, when it comes to plastic surgery people sometimes need to be reminded.  Rubinstein is committed to educating and keeping people safe.
