Liposuction cosmetic surgery is a proven and effective procedure to eliminate stubborn fatty pockets in particular areas and improve the contours and definition of the body.
At the time of your initial consultation, your surgeon will inform you about the various aspects of liposuction. They may also present liposuction before and after pictures to give you more clarity on the expected liposuction results.
The first concern of a committed surgeon will be to educate you about liposuction surgery to help you make a judicious choice. The surgeon may also encourage you to review liposuction before and after photos carefully prior to making a final decision on the procedure.
Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez, provides liposuction surgery to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding communities.
What are Liposuction Before and After Photographs?
Liposuction ‘before and after images’ are pictures of past patients that have received the same surgery with satisfactory results. These photographs include pictures taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a time when the post-op swelling and bruising have resolved, and the final results of the surgery are visible.
The surgeon will acquire these before and after pictures after obtaining the patient’s express consent and show them to new patients in an appropriate and discreet manner. The patient’s identity will be kept confidential as per protocol. These images are not on the website now but that does not mean they cannot be uploaded at any time.
The only goal of the surgeon in displaying these photos is to help a new patient understand the possible liposuction outcomes and enable them to form reasonable expectations from the procedure.
Advantages of Liposuction Before and After Pictures
It is natural for a new patient to feel concerned about the body contouring results of a major surgery such as liposuction. They may have concerns about whether the results will look natural and will match with their personal cosmetic goals. Some patients may require only limited fat removal from a single body area while some others may need more extensive fat reduction in a number of areas.
Some patients may want to combine liposuction plastic surgery with a tummy tuck, body lift, breast augmentation or another procedure for more comprehensive results. In every case, the patient will be better positioned to make the correct choice after they have reviewed liposuction before and after images.
If a patient has realistic expectations from liposuction, they will be able to appreciate the final results of liposuction in a better way. Patients should also be aware at the outset that liposuction is a fat loss procedure rather than one meant to provide significant weight loss.
If you are considering more extensive body improvements, it is best to discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon. By presenting liposuction before and after images, your surgeon can try to ensure that you have a better clarity on what this procedure can and cannot do.
Sharing Images via Social Media
Liposuction ‘before and after’ photographs can be shared with a large number of patients through social platforms such as Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook. New as well as existing patients can conveniently view these images possibly during the consultation to know more about liposuction surgery. The consultation is mandatory anyway and with digital imagery you can get a strong grasp of what this procedure will entail before you sign on the dotted line.
If the surgeon or their staff is active on some dedicated cosmetic blogs, discussion forums and respected websites such as RealSelf, they can disseminate liposuction ‘before and after’ pictures through these channels for greater exposure.
