( - San Francisco, CA - December 4, 2013 -- BuildMyBod, the company responsible for the BuildMyBod website, mobile app and BuildMyBod Promos, announced today that it has joined with to offer patient procedure pricing information. is the only patient-rating site endorsed by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

"More than 60 percent of U.S. adults use the internet to find medical information," said Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder of "Over 30 percent of medical searches are about healthcare providers, and 10 percent of people seek pricing information about plastic surgery procedures.  By joining with, we can integrate important information for a patient's search...they can find a highly rated plastic surgeon and find out how much treatment will cost at the same time."

Plastic surgery pricing is of immense online interest. According to Google search data, out of the millions of Google searches that occur monthly within the plastic surgery space, 10 percent of those searches are explicitly seeking procedure pricing and cost information. When consumers visit, and now, they can determine the total estimated costs of procedures that interest them before they enter the physician's office for a consultation.

Kaplan pointed out that, "Reviews on come from a survey completed by real patients who have completed a qualified visit to a doctor's office. Not just anyone can go online and write a review through the site. And, the participating providers cannot selectively choose which patients will be surveyed. This means the results reflect the actual experience of all patients.  That's an important reason we joined this partnership. Their goal of transparency for the consumer matches with ours."
