Does plastic surgery interest you? Have you ever thought about having a cosmetic procedure done? Do you want to know more about specific plastic surgery procedures? More important, do you want to learn all about plastic surgery from plastic surgeons themselves – the very people behind the scalpel? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you need to check out the new plastic surgery podcast called Three Plastic Surgeons and a Microphone that is hosted by, you guessed it, three plastic surgeons – Dr. Sam Jejurikar (Dallas, Texas), Dr. Salvatore Pacella (San Diego, California), and Dr. Sam Rhee (New Jersey/New York).
Dr. Jejurikar, along with his colleagues and long-time friends, Dr. Pacella and Dr. Rhee, started the Three Plastic Surgeons and a Microphone podcast in June 2020, with a new episode once a week. So, what exactly do they talk about concerning plastic surgery? Well, everything! Let’s take a look.
What the Podcast is All About
Times have sure changed. It used to be, if you wanted to hear a doctor’s opinion or in-depth information about a medical issue or surgical procedure, you had to have a one-on-one consultation with that doctor in office, which meant scheduling an appointment, sometimes months in advance, and actually going to the doctor’s office to have a conversation. It took time. It took effort. And, sometimes, it’d be for nothing because maybe you didn’t mesh well with the doctor or you didn’t quite get all your questions answered, so then you’d have to start all over with another doctor.
Now all you have to do is tune into the latest podcast on your phone or computer to hear what doctors have to say. You can type your questions right into the comment box and have them answered live on their podcast. Sometimes, you can even call in to talk to them during their podcast. You can hear them talk about specific medical procedures, such as what’s involved, what the recovery time is like, who would most benefit from the procedure, and how the procedure can make a difference in your life. You’ll learn all about plastic surgery, cosmetic procedures, and treatments. You’ll learn what’s in, what’s out, and you’ll hear the latest news on new and improved treatments and surgical procedures.
