A facelift is a major plastic surgery procedure that is designed to take several years off the patient’s face without affecting the natural identity and integrity of the face.
At the time of the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will discuss the differences between various facelift techniques. They may also show the patient facelift before and after images.
The primary concern of a surgeon will be to explain various aspects of facelift surgery to the patient and enable them to make a judicious decision. Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez provides facelift to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding communities.
What are Facelift Before and After Images?
Facelift plastic surgery ‘before and after’ photos are a set of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same procedure with successful outcomes. The set includes images taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a time when the bruising and inflammation have resolved, and the full effects of the surgery are apparent.
The surgeon will make sure that the images are acquired with the express consent of the patient and show them to new patients in a perspicacious manner.
The privacy of the patient will be ensured, according to standard protocol. The only purpose of the surgeon behind this exercise is to use facelift before and after images as a visual tool to explain the potential effectiveness of the procedure to new patients.
One of the aspects here is digital technology. The technology that is available to almost everyone on the planet has enabled the plastic surgery industry to illustrate their capabilities in the most profound manner. Digital technology allows anyone to see pictures of clarity using technology and services they already have and pay for, respectively.
A facelift is an intricate cosmetic surgery procedure, and patients are understandably concerned as the face is the most prominent area of the body. Certain patients may only require a limited amount of lift, while others may need more significant facial improvement.
In order to meet their aesthetic goals, some patients may have to combine a facelift with a neck lift, facial fat transfer, or upper face procedures. Regardless of the case, the surgeon is in a better position to enable the patient to make an appropriate decision upon view before and after images.
Transparency is the key here and Dr. Gonzales uses this methodology to build trust with people he does not even know. What’s better than allowing your work to speak for itself?
Having Realistic Expectations
Patients typically achieve the highest satisfaction levels in any cosmetic procedure when they have a positive mindset, concise cosmetic goals, and realistic expectations. For this reason, an experienced surgeon might ask the patient to review multiple before and after images prior to making up their mind to proceed with the surgery.
The effort will mitigate the risk of any disappointment for the patient at a later stage when it may be challenging to reverse the results. Showing before and after images will benefit all parties, and the patient can feel more reassured and enjoy the outcomes in a better manner.
Pictures on the Website
The surgeon can showcase facelift before and after pictures on their practice website which is the case here. His website is enlightening and allows anyone to see these cutting edge images from either their living room couch or sitting at their desk at work, for example. In case they have a social media presence, they can also share the images through channels such as Google+, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
New patients can freely access these pictures and may review them online in the comfort of their home before they are ready to visit the surgeon’s office for a consultation. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez receives patients from El Paso, TX, and nearby areas for facelift surgery.
