Breast Surgery Before and After Photos
Breast surgeries are among the commonly requested plastic surgery procedures in the U.S. today. Typical surgeries such as breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction are performed for aesthetic purposes. In some cases, breast reduction and breast implants procedure may be performed for medical reasons. Dr. Farbod Esmailian provides these procedures to patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, and nearby areas.
What are Breast Surgery Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of breast surgery refer to a set of images relating to an earlier patient who has undergone a breast procedure successfully. The set includes pictures taken before the procedure and after the procedure at a date when full effects of the surgery are visible, and the swelling and bruising has subsided completely, usually 4 months after the surgery is performed. The plastic surgeon will take these pictures with the patient’s consent, and show them in a discreet manner to other patients.
The goal is to educate new patients about various aspects of a breast surgery procedure such as breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction. The photographs serve as an effective visual tool during the initial consultation. Dr. Esmailian ensures that before and after pictures for all breast produces are provided to his patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, and surrounding places.
When a new patient is looking for breast implants or another breast surgery procedure, she may have only a vague idea of the effectiveness of the surgery in her case. Each breast surgery procedure may be performed using different surgical techniques and approaches, depending on an individual patient’s breast anatomy and her personal aesthetic goals. Sometimes a patient may need only a minor surgery, while in other cases, the required surgery may be extensive or complicated.
In some cases, the patient may need a combination of two procedures such as breast lift and breast augmentation. It can become difficult for a patient to make the appropriate choices. This is where breast surgery before and after photos can play an important role in helping the patient to make informed decisions.
Being Realistic about the Outcome
In some cases, the patient may form misplaced expectations about a certain breast surgery procedure, despite the best verbal explanations of the surgeon. In such a situation, the patient may end up being disappointed with the final results, even when the surgeon may have performed the procedure exactly as per the treatment plan.
Such unwelcome situations can be avoided when the patient has an access to breast surgery before and after photos at the time of pre-op consultation. With these pictures, the patient will know exactly what the procedure can or cannot do for her.
Photographs on the Surgeon’s Website
The plastic surgeon may choose to provide breast surgery before and after photos on their practice website. New patients may review the photos online in the privacy of their home or office. Only when they are more convinced about the procedure, they may decide to visit the surgeon’s office for a consultation.
