Eyelid lift plastic surgery (blepharoplasty) improves the appearance of dull, listless eyes. At the time of the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will evaluate the condition of the patient’s lower and upper eyelids and recommend an appropriate technique.
Some surgeons may choose to show the patient blepharoplasty before and after pictures during the initial consultation. This enables the patient to develop a better understanding of the potential outcomes of the surgery.
What are Eyelid Lift Before and After Photos?
Eyelid surgery ‘before and after’ images are a pair or group of photos of previous patients who have undergone blepharoplasty with successful results. These images are taken before the procedure and after the surgery when the post-operative inflammation and bruising have resolved, and the complete outcomes of the surgery become apparent.
The surgeon will obtain these photographs with the patient’s consent and show them to new patients in a private and judicious manner. Furthermore, the surgeon will not disclose the patient’s identity according to standard norms.
The only goal of the surgeon while presenting these pictures is to ensure that the prospective patient develops realistic expectations from the eyelid surgery procedure.
Any facial procedure is understandably concerning to patients as the face is the most visible area of the body. By displaying blepharoplasty before and after pictures, the surgeon can offer a prospective patient an understanding of whether eyelid lift surgery is appropriate for them.
Certain patients may need only limited correction with an eyelid surgery while others may require a more extensive procedure. Regardless, the patient can make the most judicious decision after viewing eyelid surgery before and after images which are available on Dr. Tsai’s helpful website.
These pictures enable anyone to grasp the care and skill that Dr. Tsai possesses. Now someone can see what to expect without shifting any money in their bank accounts or making one phone call. This allows someone to make a key decision in their life based on anonymity. That is power given to the masses.
Combining Images with Text
Descriptive text explaining the procedure, the reasons for which it was undertaken, and how it helped the patient’s specific problems may be beneficial to prospective patients when displayed along with eyelid lift before and after pictures.
The surgeon can present the journey of a previous patient with concise, clear, and succinct descriptions. Such descriptive text can become a vital part of before and after image galleries, as patients tend to connect better with photos but recall the associated details more accurately with descriptions.
The surgeon may share before and after pictures digitally in the following ways:
- Website Galleries: Creating a before and after image gallery on the practice website which is the case here as already mentioned. Transparency is vital.
- Portfolios: Develop an image portfolio to display to prospective patients considering the same procedure.
- Blog Posts: An optimal way to provide new patients with visual evidence of procedure outcomes is by adding pictures to a blog post.
- Social Media Platforms: Using pictures is a powerful way to optimize social media posts. However, posting images on online forums warrants discretion.
A detailed before and after photo gallery offers information to patients and acts as a marketing tool for the surgeon and their practice. It is an avenue to showcase their skills and expertise while educating prospective patients on innovative cosmetic surgery procedures such as eyelid lift.
The advent of digital technology has been fully utilized by a plenitude of industries and the plastic surgery industry is certainly one of them. Now someone can see these poignant pictures while lying in bed or in the break room at work.
