What are Rhinoplasty Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of rhinoplasty refer to a pair or group of images belonging to an earlier patient who has receive the same procedure successfully. The pictures include images taken prior to the nose surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the swelling and bruising has subsided and full effects of the rhinoplasty have taken shape. The cosmetic surgeon will obtain these images with the consent of the patient, and present them before new patients in a discreet way.
The only goal of the surgeon with these images is to educate new patients about various aspects of rhinoplasty, and demonstrate its potential effectiveness. During the initial consultation for nose plastic surgery, Dr. Jones prefers to make use of before and after photos wherever possible for his patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and other locations. These pictures serve as an effective visual tool in order to help the patient understand the procedure and make an informed choice.
When a new patient is considering cosmetic surgery for the nose, they may only have a vague idea of what rhinoplasty can or cannot do for them, and how it may impact their overall facial appearance. Some patients may need only a minor improvement in the shape of the nose, while others may need a major nasal reshaping and resizing.
Sometimes the plastic surgeon may recommend grafting, implants, or other complex procedures to be combined with basic rhinoplasty in order to meet the patient’s unique aesthetic goals. The aesthetic needs of ethnic patients may also differ from those of other patients. In all such situations, the surgeon can make an effective use of rhinoplasty before and after photos to help the patient make the right decisions about the procedure.
Forming Realistic Expectations
One of the goals of an experienced cosmetic surgeon is to ensure that the patient remains realistic about the rhinoplasty procedure, and understands clearly at the outset about what the procedure can or cannot do for them. This can be done with the help of rhinoplasty before and after photos during the initial consultation process.
This mitigates the risk of any unpleasant situation arising later on where the patient may feel disappointed due to wrong initial expectations. The surgeon may also choose to provide the photos online so that new patients may review them even before they decide to visit the surgeon’s office for a rhinoplasty consultation.
