Default Facelift Surgery Video

Hello everybody,

I just wanted to share a facelift video with ya'll. If anyone's interested, check it out!

Facelift Surgery in 10 Minutes @ YouTube.

(This video is produced by me, under the direction of Michael S. Schwartz, M.D., and it is simply made to be educational for anyone who wants to know more about this type of surgery. My apologies for not previously noting my affiliation with Dr. Schwartz. I meant no harm, nor did I mean to mislead anyone regarding my relationship with Dr. Schwartz.)

Enjoy!

~laz

Paravis is breaking the law! He does internet marketing for Schwartz!!!

I will speak to some friends and have this investigated. As of 12/2009, this type of biased promotion is illegal!

Don't break the law, paravis!!!

Credentials are great, but like I said in the last post, there is strength in numbers.

Unhappy Please educate ...

Hey all. I'm a little lost for words right now at how it seems I've got a few of you after me in such a vengeful way about this.

I meant no harm, and my posts were only an attempt at educating. Anyway, if someone could please point me in the right direction to read about these particular law changes you speak of, I would greatly appreciate it.

Again, I meant no harm and I would really appreciate a little help ... Thank you.

I will PM you momentarily. You have been reported for breaking a federal law, as well as the practice you are affiliated with.

I responded to your other post. There's nothing "vengeful" about our replies. The problem is that you are not disclosing your affiliation with this practice in your posts. See my response to your other thread too.

If it's your job to go around on plastic surgery message boards and promote doctors, then you should disclose they are paying you.

If it's your job to go around on plastic surgery message boards and promote doctors, then you certainly should have known about this law.
It's not my job to go around on plastic surgery message boards and promote doctors. My job is to create educational videos to inform the public of what plastic surgery actually involves.

I don't mean to start any problems with anyone. I just think it would be a lot better for everyone to at least have an understanding of what's going on before JUMPING on someone's back based on an assumption. It almost seemed like certain individuals were just waiting to ruin someone's day--and in this case, mine.

If you'd watch any of my videos, the extent of my "promotion" is crediting the surgeon for his work and giving any interested parties his contact information in case they have questions ... Since I am not legally allowed to give any medical advice or counsel.

It's too bad things went the way they did. I never meant any harm to anyone.

Plus, it'd be nice if someone could actually reference the FEDERAL LAW that mandates and regulates this . I have been unable to locate ANYTHING that classifies my posts and work as illegal. So ...

I appreciate your concern (and my apologies for using the term "vengeful"), but I think I'll just keep at what I'm doing. If, in the unfortunate case (for the entire medical community in general), the federal government deems my work to be against any laws or FTC violations, then so be it. But I highly doubt they are going to waste their time, considering the nature of my work.

I'm not advertising, nor am I promoting. I am simply educating. Of course I must give credit where credit is due. My work would not have been possible without the help of Dr. Schwartz, and even though I am affiliated with his practice, I am not fishing for business. I am educating the public. There is a *huge* difference between what I have posted here and traditional marketing.

Thanks anyways.
