Facelift is a major cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to take several years off the patient’s face without compromising their natural facial integrity and identity.
The first concern of a surgeon will be to educate the patient about all aspects of facelift surgery, and help them make an informed decision. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roger Tsai provides facelift to patients in West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.
What are Facelift Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of facelift plastic surgery refer to a set of images belonging to an earlier patient who has undergone the same procedure with satisfactory results. The set includes photos taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the bruising and swelling has been eliminated and full effects of the surgery are visible.
The surgeon will take care to ensure that the photographs are obtained with the full consent of the patient and presented before new patients in an appropriate manner.
The patient’s privacy will be maintained as needed. The surgeon’s only purpose behind this exercise is to use facelift before and after photos as a visual aid to explain the potential effectiveness of the procedure to new patients.
Now the clinic’s ability to convey the amazing work of the surgeon is possible by digital technology. Digital technology is the unsung hero if we may in this process. This technology allows stellar pictures to be displayed to anyone with a digital screen. The Internet is necessary in many ways to make this possible as well.
Facelift is a complex procedure, and patients are naturally concerned because the face is the most visible and aesthetically most prominent part of the body. Some patients may only want a limited amount of lift, while some others may want a significant facial tissue enhancement.
Some patients may have to combine facelift with facial fat transfer, liposuction, neck lift or upper face procedures to meet their personal goals. In all cases, the surgeon is in a better position to help the patient make right choices when access to before and after photos is available.
With digital technology already being mentioned it needs to be said that anyone can see these pictures from pretty much anywhere nowadays because of this technology. Someone can see these salient images while sitting in their kitchen or sitting in a movie theater while they wait for that blockbuster to begin. It is a brave new world now for sure!
Having Reasonable Expectations
Best satisfaction levels in any aesthetic procedure are typically achieved when the patient has a positive frame of mind, clear cosmetic priorities and reasonable expectations. Therefore, an accomplished surgeon might encourage the patient to review several before and after photos before they make up their mind to go ahead with the surgery.
This effort will reduce the risk of any disappointment occurring at a later stage for the patient when it could be difficult to reverse the outcome. All parties involved will benefit, and the patient can feel more confident and enjoy the results in a better way.
Photographs on the Website
The surgeon has an option to provide facelift before and after photos on their practice website which Dr. Tsai does with acumen. Transparency is the key here and he knows about this because it has more to do than just marketing, it is about building trust.
If they have a presence over social media, they can also disseminate the photos through channels such as Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram. This is the age we live in now. When someone is proud of their work and they want people to sign up for a surgery that may not be mandatory, it is vital to show people what can be done for them.
This means that the patient has more of an understanding on what to expect. This makes it easier for everyone involved. Patients that are not as anxious help make the process that much smoother. These before and after pictures are helpful for more than one reason.
