Facelift surgery, medically known as rhytidectomy, is one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States today.
The surgeon will explain various facets of a facelift procedure to the patient, and may also show them facelift before and after pictures at the time of the pre-operative consultation.
The first goal of a responsible surgeon will be to make sure that the patient makes an informed decision about facelift plastic surgery.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides facelift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
What are Facelift Before and After Photos?
Facelift ‘before and after’ images are a pair or group of photos of previous patients who have undergone rhytidectomy with successful outcomes.
These images are taken before and after the cosmetic surgery at a time when the post-surgical inflammation and bruising have resolved, and the final results establish completely.
The surgeon will take these images with the express consent of the patient and show them to new patients in a discreet and judicious way.
The surgeon will also not disclose the identity of the patient, according to standard norms. The only objective for displaying these photos is to enable new patients to attain clarity on the final results of a facelift and no one does this better than MBody.
The face is the most visible area of the body. Patients are understandably concerned about any treatment affecting the face.
The surgeon can showcase facelift before and after pictures to new patients to offer them reassurance on whether rhytidectomy is an appropriate procedure for them.
Some patients may need only limited facial correction, such as a mini facelift. Others may need a full facelift along with procedures for the upper face or a neck lift. Irrespective of the case, new patients can make a better informed choice after viewing facelift before and after pictures.
Because of the amazing website that MBody has created anyone can see these images and because of the Internet a potential patient can see these poignant pictures from their own front porch or sitting and watching a baseball game somewhere. Not only this, you can use the devices you probably already own to see these images.
Combining Pictures with Text
It may be beneficial for patients if facelift before and after pictures are accompanied by descriptive text explaining the procedures, the reasons for which it was undertaken, and how it fulfilled the patient’s unique needs.
The surgeon can effectively showcase the journey of a previous patient through these brief descriptions. Descriptive text can be an important element of before and after photo galleries as patients connect better with pictures while the text enables them to remember the associated details more accurately.
Sharing Your Pictures
Surgeons can share facelift before and after pictures to spread information on the procedure in the following ways:
- Website Photo Galleries: Creating a before and after image gallery on the practice site and MBody’s website has image after image pertaining to facelifts. There is not any dearth of images on the site so anyone can grasp what to expect when signing on the dotted line with a proven and established plastic surgeon. Either Dr. Sundin have proven themselves time and time again in this field, one satisfied patient after another.
- Portfolios: Developing a photo portfolio to display to new patients who are interested in the same procedure.
- Blog Post: Adding pictures to a blog post can effectively offer patients visual documentation of the surgery outcomes.
- Social Media Channels: Pictures can effectively optimize social media posts. However, it is vital to be discretionary when posting on public platforms.
A comprehensive ‘before and after’ photo gallery can be an informational and promotional tool for the surgeon and their practice. The surgeon can use these pictures to showcase their skills and expertise while simultaneously educating new patients on complex procedures such as facelift plastic surgery.
