Dr. Miami will soon be taking his plastic surgery from your Snapchat screens to your TV screens! WE tv has officially ordered 6 hour-long episodes of a forthcoming unscripted reality series about the popular plastic surgeon and his practices. “We love this show because Dr. Salzhauer is a completely unique and authentic individual who is at the top of his profession and using social media in an innovative and powerful way,” said WE tv president Marc Juris. “Plastic-surgery shows have become a staple of unscripted TV, but a surgeon using Snapchat and other social platforms to literally bring fans into the operating room represents a bold and fresh twist that connects old and new media and will give us additional opportunities to attract and engage WE tv viewers.”
