Before and After Images

The office of an experienced cosmetic surgeon will usually have a full set of before and after images for various surgical procedures. These images belong to previous patients who have undergone a cosmetic surgery treatment. The set includes images taken “before” the surgery as well as images taken “after” the surgery. A new patient can have a better visual understanding of what a particular procedure may be able to achieve in terms of aesthetic improvements. Photographs taken after the procedure are usually taken at different intervals or stages of recovery. A new patient can visualize from these pictures what will be the immediate outcome and how the full effects of the plastic surgery procedure appear as days and weeks go by. Dr. Seify makes sure that best possible before and after pictures are made available to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and surrounding areas who visit his office for a consultation. In many cases, the plastic surgeon may also provide digital before and after images on his or her practice website. Some people may like to know all possible information about a procedure such as breast augmentation or breast lift even before they visit the surgeon’s office for a consultation. They can simply visit the surgeon’s official website and view these images online, and have a better understanding of what the procedure can or cannot do to improve their aesthetic appearance.

A Useful Tool in Choosing a Procedure

Many patients are keen to choose breast augmentation or breast lift surgery to enhance their breast appearance. However, they may not be very clear about which particular procedure may be more suitable for them. Some women may have normal sized breasts, but the breasts may be severely drooping due to excess loose skin. In such a case, breast augmentation may not be able to help much, and breast lift may be a more appropriate procedure. With the help of before and after pictures, a cosmetic surgeon will be able to show to the patient which of the two may be the more appropriate procedure in her case. Sometimes the patient may require a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift surgery to achieve more comprehensive results. The plastic surgeon may recommend a combination surgery if it helps meets the patient’s aesthetic goals. Before and after photos of previous patients who have undergone a combination surgery can help a patient understand the comprehensive outcome of such a procedure, and help her make an informed decision.

Choice of Implants

One of the critical decisions in breast augmentation procedure is the choice of breast implants. Both saline and silicone gel implants are FDA approved, and fairly popular among patients. Both types of implants are available in different sizes, shapes and textures. It can be difficult for a patient to visualize her overall appearance with a particular size and shape of implants. The correct choice of implants is important because it can often have a bearing on the final aesthetic outcome of the procedure. The surgeon may show before and after pictures of patients who have chosen various implants sizes as well as round or tear shaped implants. These pictures can serve as an effective tool to let the patient understand how the breasts may appear with a particular type, size and shape of implants. Dr. Seify likes to educate his patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA and nearby areas about all aspects of breast augmentation and breast lift plastic surgery so that they can make informed choices and achieve the best possible satisfaction levels.

Realistic Expectations

One of the key benefits of before and after photos in case of breast augmentation and breast lift procedures is that they can help a patient form realistic expectation about the outcome. In absence of these photos, a patient may misinterpret the surgeon’s explanation despite best efforts of the surgeon. This may cause disappointment with the results even if the procedure has been performed very successfully. This scenario can be avoided with the help of before and after pictures. It is important for a patient to clearly understand what a particular cosmetic surgery procedure can or cannot do. This is where before and after photographs can play a vital role.
