We live in a world where everything can be attained at the touch of a button. We can order food from our phones without ever having to speak to anyone. We can purchase clothing online, and return it if it doesn’t fit well. And all we have to do to meet a new partner is swipe right or attend a meet-up thrown by an app.
Plenty of already apps allow you to have digital personal trainers or nutritionists, but how would you feel about taking that a step further?
Would you, for example, feel comfortable with having a meeting with a doctor who would prescribe Accutane for your acne through your phone? Many telemedicine apps already started broaching this route, and a lot of celebrity dermatologists started to offer consultations on-demand through apps.
Many people would already be skeptical about the possibility of meeting with a doctor without seeing them in person. But one app is going even further beyond the typical “chat and prescribe” tactic of commonplace telemedicine apps, by arranging plastic surgery procedures online.
Living Sage has made international headlines by behaving as both a content hub and a network to arrange online consultations with real plastic surgeons.
Truthfully, it’s not just about plastic surgery. There’s a little something for everyone on Living Sage—from content, to networking, to interesting studies, to plastic surgery consultations.
Fans of medical TV shows and people who are curious about anatomy have fallen for live videos of plastic surgeons carrying out cosmetic procedures on real patients; those who are curious about improving their health often enjoy podcasts done by real doctors; those who want to improve their looks and have been considering getting plastic surgery typically end up going the whole nine yards and booking a consultation.
Imagine having a brief conversation with a doctor online, then booking a surgical appointment, knowing that the first time you will ever see them in person is going to be the day that they operate on you.
Though many of us wouldn’t, there are now people who not only would consider it, but who already have done it through Living Sage.
Doing a story on Living Sage is a great way to broach various topics. People will love the shock factor of knowing that they can actually get plastic surgery on demand—or even watch doctors perform a real tummy tuck on the app. Those who want to know more about plastic surgery before they decide to undergo a procedure will love hearing about how new apps can make it easier than ever before. And of course, there’s also the tech and commerce aspects to discuss.
