The duration of the procedure, the downtime involved and the type of anesthesia used may depend on the extent of plastic surgery to be performed. An experienced cosmetic surgeon will explain all aspects of the procedure during the initial consultation to help the patient make an informed decision.
Dr. Wright Jones is a dedicated plastic surgeon providing liposuction and other surgeries to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and nearby areas. Dr. Jones tries to ensure that the patients have an opportunity to review liposuction before and after photographs prior to taking a decision on the surgery.
What are Liposuction Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of liposuction refer to a pair or group of images pertaining to an earlier patient who has received the same surgery with effective results. The pictures includes images taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the bruising and swelling have disappeared and the full effects of the procedure are visible. The cosmetic surgeon will present these photos in a discreet manner, and with the consent of the patient.
The only purpose of these photos is to educate new patients about the various aspects of liposuction cosmetic surgery. The surgeon will use these photos as a visual tool to ensure that the patient knows exactly what the procedure can or cannot do for them. Patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding communities may review these pictures at the office of Dr. Jones.
When a new patient visits the office of a plastic surgeon to seek liposuction procedure, they may not have a very clear idea of how the surgery will impact their overall appearance, or whether it is the most suited procedure in their case. Some patients may need only minor liposuction in a small area such as calves, knees, chin, or neck, while some others may need treatment in multiple areas, including major parts such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, or back.
In some cases, the surgeon may recommend liposuction in conjunction with another surgery such as tummy tuck or breast reduction to meet the desired aesthetic goals of the patient. In all such situations, the patient may not be able to make a definitive choice so easily. This is where the surgeon may make use of liposuction before and after photographs to enable the patient to make the right decision.

With the help of liposuction before and after photos, the surgeon can ensure that the patient knows exactly what to expect and what not to expect from the procedure. This mitigates the chances of any disappointment or misunderstanding later on when the procedure has been completed. Surgeons may also provide liposuction before and after photos on their practice website for free access to all.
