Does your list of new year’s resolutions include changing your appearance? A facial plastic surgeon in Omaha/Council Bluffs claims he’s one of the first in the country to develop an i-Phone application, or app, for his industry.
Dr. Steven Denenberg says his app is very user-friendly. “That not only allows someone to see a plastic surgeon’s before-and-after pictures, and lots of them, but also much more conveniently than browsing around a website.”
As i-Phones are growing in popularity, Dr. Denenberg says so is self-improvement surgery. The app allows people to send in their photo via the i-Phone and attach any questions about a potential procedure.
Denenberg says, “Someone browses around the before-and-after pictures and says, ‘I want to get an opinion from this doctor,’ so they just turn the phone around, snap some pictures of themselves, press a button or two, and then the photos get sent off to me, if it’s my app.”
He says one of the most popular requests he’s getting for surgery have to do with the nose. “Rhinoplasty, changing what the nose looks like,” Denenberg says. “Also revision rhinoplasty, which is a large part of my practice, which is where you re-operate on a nose after a previous unsuccessful rhinoplasty.”
Denenberg says the i-Phone is bringing him business and he’s also developing apps for the medical field, including cosmetic dentists and other plastic surgeons. “People who use the i-Phone and use it a lot, they’re looking for interesting apps,” he says. “They’re looking for something fun to do and this app provides yet another new way of using the i-Phone.”
He says several thousand people have already downloaded his new app.
