Liposuction is among the more popular procedures performed by a cosmetic surgeon in the U.S. today. Advanced surgical techniques and technologies have made the procedure safer, less invasive, and more effective. During the initial consultation, the plastic surgeon will explain all aspects of the procedure, and may also provide liposuction before and after pictures for a better explanation about the procedure’s benefits. Dr. Paul McCluskey provides this surgery to his patients in and around Atlanta, GA.
What are Liposuction Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of liposuction refer to a pair or group of images belonging to a previous patient who has received the same procedure successfully. The pictures include images taken prior to the liposuction surgery and after the surgery at a time when the bruising and swelling has subsided, and full effects of the procedure have appeared. The cosmetic surgeon will take these pictures with the consent of the patient, and present them before new patients in a discreet way. Liposuction Before and After Photos
The objective of these photographs is to educate new patients about various aspects of the liposuction surgery. The surgeon will use these pictures during initial consultation as a visual aid to help the patient make an informed decision. Dr. McCluskey tries to ensure that these images are made available to every patient during the initial consultation process.
Liposuction procedure can be a minor procedure in some cases, or a major surgery involving multiple areas of the body, in some other cases. When a new patient is considering liposuction surgery, they may not have a clear idea of what exactly the procedure can do for them, and how it can help fulfill their aesthetic needs. This is where the plastic surgeon will make use of liposuction before and after photographs.
The photos will help the patient understand how their appearance may be enhanced with different treatment approaches, techniques or surgical combinations. If the patient needs liposuction in conjunction with tummy tuck, breast lift, body contouring or another surgery, the appropriate before and after photos can show the different possibilities to the patient to help them make the right choice.
Staying Realistic about Results
Experienced surgeons are aware that the best satisfaction levels in any plastic surgery procedure such as liposuction can be achieved only when the patient has a positive outlook, clear goals, and realistic expectations. Liposuction before and after photos can be used to make sure that the patient knows exactly what to expect and what not to expect from the surgery.
Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, and it is also not suitable for removal of stretch marks or cellulite from the skin. With before and after photos, the risk of patient over-expecting or wrongly expecting the results becomes mitigated.
Liposuction ‘before and after’ images can also be posted on the surgeon’s website. New patients or those interested in the procedure can access the photos from the website even before they make up their mind about visiting the surgeon’s office for an initial consultation.
