The App Designed To Speed Up The Cosmetic Surgery Research Process

Choosing whether to have cosmetic surgery can be life changing decision that requires a considerable amount of research and forward planning. After all, we’re frequently exposed to horror stories involving unsatisfied cosmetic surgery patients and victims of negligence.

January 4, 2016

Choosing whether to have cosmetic surgery can be life changing decision that requires a considerable amount of research and forward planning. After all, we’re frequently exposed to horror stories involving unsatisfied cosmetic surgery patients and victims of negligence.

However, a new app has been designed that wants to ‘change the face’ of cosmetic surgery by speeding up the research process and enabling patients to contact surgeons with just a few clicks.
Zwivel allows prospective patients to ask doctors for their opinions, secure price quotations and even book an appointment for a procedure, without even having to leave the comfort of their home.
The app’s creators argue that Zwivel will make it easier for prospective patients to access all the information they need. A promotional video created for the app says: “Driving from doctor to doctor, weighing different opinions, and comparing the costs can be an exhausting process. But it doesn’t have to be.”
Since its launch in August this year, Zwivel has seen rapid adoption by both cosmetic surgeons and patients alike.
The app’s makers say that Zwivel should make it easier for people to carry out their research, and although this could be the case by giving patients easy access to plenty of information, it could also have the opposite effect. With the ability to book a procedure simply a few clicks away, some people may sign up for costly treatments with very little planning and research at all.
A Zwivel representative said: “Zwivel’s ‘pre-consultation’ lets doctors advise patients if a procedure is exactly what they need, if something different is needed, advise if what they are looking for is close to their budget, and more, ultimately eliminating time in their busy day.”
Here at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, we recommend that all prospective cosmetic surgery patients thoroughly research surgeons and clinics before making an appointment.
By doing so, those seeking treatment can minimise the likelihood of any problems arising. We regularly hear from patients who have fallen victim to cosmetic surgery negligence and are suffering long-lasting problems as a result of plastic surgery complications a lack of care.
If you’ve fallen victim to cosmetic surgery negligence, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team.
