3 Steps to Evaluating Before and After Photos

A picture is worth a thousand words, but when you’re considering plastic surgery, it is important to understand what to look for. When you evaluate those before and after photos, make sure that the results you desire appear in the “after” photos from your potential surgeon. As a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, I advise patients to take the time to examine photos of the procedures they are considering.

While no surgeon can produce the exact same results on two different people, browsing through the photo gallery can help you choose the right professional for you. Here are some tips I’ve created to help you with that task:

  1. Ask yourself if the results look consistently good. If you notice repeated results that are not what you desire, this is a good indicator that the surgeon may not be right for you.
  2. Ask yourself if the results look natural and attractive. A good surgeon will create results that appear naturally beautiful.
  3. Notice if there are any specific techniques a surgeon is using. If the surgeon uses a special technique and you like the results, you may want to compare results only to others who perform the same technique.

Do remember that results will differ for each individual, depending on that person’s natural body shape or type. If you are satisfied with the before and after photographs of the procedure you are interested in, consulting with that surgeon will help determine if that specialist is right for you, as well as whether you are a good candidate for that specific procedure.
