Dear Editor,

We would like to share ideas on “Social media behavior in plastic surgery practice in Turkey.”[1] Emuler and Ayhan concluded that “Social media is an ideal platform for interaction, communication, participation….protected through professional guidelines and supervision.[1]” Using social media is common at present. The present study might help provide information regarding internet users. Several issues are challenging including ethical as well as privacy issues. For privacy, only a few surgeons in a recent survey used social media anonymously.[2] However, it should note that there are still many areas in developing countries that there is no internet accessibility. The behavior in plastic surgery practice might be similar or different. Finally, using social media in plastic surgery practice has to be properly controlled. In future, there might be many legal issues. Using social media during practice might or might not be appropriate and should be further discussed.
