RealSelf Highlights Humanitarian Plastic Surgeons in “Beyond Beauty” image

RealSelf has launched Beyond Beauty, a special editorial series that explores how plastic surgeons and other medical professionals donate their time to participate in humanitarian work in the U.S. and abroad. The Beyond Beauty series also highlights the work done by nonprofits like ReSurge International, an organization focused on building reconstructive surgical capacity in developing countries that RealSelf has partnered with since 2015.

The special series will be featured on RealSelf News from Feb. 17 to March 17 and includes:

  • Nonprofit Spotlights: Learn about the work ReSurge and RealSelf are doing to provide reconstructive surgery to burn survivors in India, and how the organization Face Forward provides support and surgical care to individuals affected by domestic violence
  • Expert Interviews: Learn about the philanthropic work doctors like Dr. Marshall Partington, a board-certified plastic surgeon from Kirkland, Washington, do in their communities and abroad
  • Personal Essays: Hear from RealSelf editors and community members whose personal experiences have changed their own understanding of beauty
  • Charitable Organizations Guide: Discover the philanthropic groups and organizations RealSelf doctors support

“Beyond Beyond shines a light on the transformative power of reconstructive surgery and its ability to restore an individual’s sense of self,” said Tom Seery, RealSelf founder and CEO. “We hope that by telling these stories, we inspire more people to support the incredible work doctors, medical professionals and organizations are doing.”
