The Importance of Before and After Photos
When researching a plastic surgeon, it is very important to view his/her before and after photos.
You need to see the doctor’s surgical style. For example, if you are interested in having rhinoplasty surgery, does the doctor provide patients with more natural-lookingrhinoplastyresults or do the patients look “over-done”?
Viewing several photos will also give you confidence that the surgeon considers balancing all the features of your face and customizing your nose to the rest of your facial features.
If you are an ethnic rhinoplasty patient, viewing before and after pictures is especially important. Will the surgeon take your ethnicity into consideration and does the doctor have experience with ethnic rhinoplasty? You want to find a surgeon who has lots of experience with patients of your ethnicity.
If the doctor does not have any photos, then at the very least, you should ask to speak with a patient who has already had the procedure you are interested in having. By speaking with a patient, you can get first-hand information about the patient’s experience and outcome of surgery.
You need to have some example of the doctor’s work to ensure you are making the best decision for yourself.
