What should I look for when looking at before and after pictures of a potential surgeon to perform my facelift?
One advantage of the internet is that it allows the patient to examine the physicians before and after results. What appears to be a good result to one patient may not appear to be that way to another. In our practice, we strive to provide significant benefit for the patient from the preoperative to the postoperative photograph, while creating a natural result that cannot be detected as cosmetic surgical intervention by looking at the postoperative photo alone. We do not want anyone to look at our patient postoperatively and know that they have had cosmetic surgery. If you compare their postoperative result to their preoperative photo however, there should be a significant difference. Patients who are looking for these types of results will be attracted to our website and facility. A patient looking for a surgical result that appears more “operated”, may seek a surgeon who has before and after photos demonstrating that type of result.
