Dr. Jeffrey C. Popp knows about the enormous amount of potentially harmful misinformation surrounding cosmetic surgery. The cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, who has been practicing since 1983, doesn’t just see rumors and errors online, he and his team hear about them every day from their affected patients.
Now Dr Popp is struggling with facts. It has created a growing library of videos that serve as an online resource center and reliable source of clear and medically correct information. It details a range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures (including before and after photos), but also discusses patient expectations and potential side effects.
“I am convinced that the more the patient knows about his problem and his treatment options, the pros and cons, the risks, the complications and the recovery, the better he will fare,” he explains in a commentary. video.
The Video Library is the latest addition to the full Popp Cosmetic Surgery website, poppcosmeticsurgery.com, which includes plenty of information and even a blog with a questions and comments section. All of this supports Dr Popp’s philosophy of encouraging patients to learn more before a procedure and even before the first consultation by doing research, putting together a list of questions for the medical team and exploring their motivations and expectations. by examining questions such as “Why do I want surgery? “” And “Am I at the right time in my life for this type of intervention?
The videos provide another channel for people to receive information, and because the very friendly Dr. Popp appears in the videos, potential patients can also get to know Dr. Popp virtually.
The first video showcases Popp’s cosmetic surgery practice and facilities, which includes a certified surgery center. Other early videos explain the “Popp Approach” to cosmetic surgery and takes the viewer on a journey through the stages of cosmetic surgery, from “reflection” to post-operative results. Dr Popp personally details how he walks patients through the first conversation about their concerns and then how, “It’s my job to apply the options to correct them. “
The first videos cover some of the most requested procedures, including eyelid surgery and reconstruction; Exilis treatment, a non-surgical procedure that reduces fat and tightens loose skin; mammal augmentation, CO2 laser skin resurfacing, otoplasty (ear pinching), neck lift and neck liposuction. Dr Popp has a knack, evident in the videos, of being able to use scientific medical terminology and explain it in layman’s terms.
He also added a video about his work with veterans and training medical students at the Veterans Administration Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System.
The collection of videos continues to grow.
Popp cosmetic surgery procedures include a range of surgical and non-surgical facial, breast and body procedures from the best known (facelift, liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tuck) to the most recent (Emsella treatment for urinary incontinence, Latisse for eyelash enhancement, Exilis).
About half of the patients in the office come for cosmetic surgery and the other half for reconstructive surgery, said Dr Popp. Both types of surgeries have their advantages: It is rewarding to help patients who did not choose to have surgery but need reconstruction for a variety of reasons, from cancer to car accidents. He enjoys working with cosmetic surgery patients because these procedures are between him and the patient; no third party, such as an insurance company, is involved.
With his patient-centric ‘Popp approach’, it’s no surprise that Dr Popp was recently selected by the community for top honors as the 2021 Readers’ Choice for the practice of cosmetic surgery. Patient care is a team effort, and the staff have built a reputation for courtesy and helpfulness, providing a level of care that gives patients confidence and makes them feel comfortable returning to the hospital. to come up.
