Local physician Dr. William J. Koenig is one of 500 doctors in the nation to receive the prestigious RealSelf 500 Award, out of nearly 13,000 board certified specialists with a presence on RealSelf—the leading online community helping people make confident choices in elective cosmetic procedures. He is the only Plastic Surgeon in the Rochester/Buffalo area awarded this honor.
In a time when 1 in 4 U.S. adults share their health experiences on social media channels, the medical professionals that made the 2015 RealSelf 500 are recognized both for having an outstanding record of consumer feedback and for providing credible, valuable insights in response to consumer questions about elective cosmetic treatments, plastic surgery, dentistry and more.
Dr. William Koenig specializes exclusively in breast, body, and injectable procedures at the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery in Rochester, NY. Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Koenig has over 23 years of experience in breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, body sculpting procedures, and Botox® and injectable fillers. He has performed over 1,600 breast augmentations in the past 12 years in Rochester, and in 2012 presented his low complication rates compared to national averages at the Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Dr. Koenig feels honored to be a part of the RealSelf community educating potential patients. “RealSelf empowers patients. We find that patients come in to our office very informed and educated when they have spent time on RealSelf learning from and sharing with the community of their peers.”
“In 2015, these 500 doctors collectively impacted tens of millions of consumers, with nearly 30% of our total doctor content posted by this relatively small group,” said Tom Seery, RealSelf founder and CEO. “When I started RealSelf, many doctors questioned why they should ‘give away’ their expertise ‘for free’ on the web. Now, eight years later — and with over one million doctor answers on our platform — we are proud of the standard this select group has set. They’re leading the way by empowering millions of consumers to gain access to the information they need to make smart and confident health and beauty decisions.”
Dr. Koenig is an expert contributor to RealSelf, and to date has posted 149 answers to questions on RealSelf. Each month people from all over world ask important aesthetic-related questions, such as what type of breast implant or breast surgery to choose for the best results.
