Rain outside but Mia shone inside! . Read on for our take on the @gencollective lunch we sponsored today and the results of our recent POLL on the topic of how women are portrayed in our industry. . Dr Nick and Amber Moncrieff enjoyed hearing Mia Freedman talk about her career, family, and her struggle to have women portrayed more honestly in media. . It is an issue close to our hearts.. it feels sometimes we are bucking the trend in our industry of widespread use of celebrity photos and stock images. . We loathe that... showing the bodies of teenage models while talking about abdominoplasty to resolve muscle separation and incontinence after children is misleading and unrealistic. . That’s why we publish so many real patient photos.. proper clinical before and afters without filters or photoshop and genuine patient selfies! And lots of shapes, sizes and ages. . So if you are troubled by something, and we can help fix it, great. But we don’t believe in making women feel bad about themselves by showing them what they ‘should’ look like based on a Barbie doll. . HOW YOU VOTED ON THIS TOPIC: Apparently most of you prefer real content too.. last week we even did an Instagram poll asking if you wanted to see more of that celebrity stuff or if you want us to keep it real. Hundreds of you voted and 94% agreed celebrity photos are BS. . And for that other 6%.. well, we guess you must be getting your celebrity fix on one or two of the thousands of cosmetic and plastic surgery accounts out there who outsource their social media and post generic content because they can’t be bothered doing it properly.. or perhaps don’t have results that their patients are happy with so they can’t get their consent to publish real photos (yes, a bit cheeky but for good reason 🙊). .
