11 Million YouTube Views


I recently looked at my YouTube statistics and was honored to see that I have accumulated over 11.5 Million views and over 23 thousand subscribers since establishing my channel in 2006!  I remember thinking when I posted my first video who on earth is going to watch this stuff.  Well, it turned to be all over the earth.  I communicate on a daily basis with many viewers from virtually every country on the planet.  Many of the comments and communications are in other languages and require me to use Google Translate, but I make an effort to answer all questions that are posted.  Some are very complimentary and love me and some are distasteful but almost are relevant.  99.9% of my posts have to do with my job and passion of cosmetic facial surgery and this international exposure has in part been responsible for my operating on many patients from out of state or out of the country.  We have enabled a small cottage industry with local hotels and restaurants for the patients that come to Richmond for evaluation and treatment.  It is an honor to see any patient and an even higher honor to see those that travel hundreds or thousands of miles for treatment.

Looking back on my first videos, they were very basic and I continually upped my game with better cameras, microphones and backgrounds and video technology.   It has been a lot of work, but a lot of fun and education. I love YouTube and use it in many ways personally and professionally and wonder how we ever got along without it.

Thank you to all of those millions of folks who have watched my videos.  I will “keep em coming”.
