Tummy tuck cosmetic surgery is designed to create a flatter and firmer abdominal appearance by eliminating loose skin and tightening the underlying muscles. At the time of your initial consultation, your surgeon will show you tummy tuck before and after pictures to help you understand the potential results of this procedure.
Envy Aesthetic Center, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Marco Gonzalez, provides tummy tuck surgery to patients in El Paso, TX, and surrounding locations.
What are Tummy Tuck Before and After Pictures?
Tummy tuck ‘before and after’ photos refer to a pair or group of images of previous patients who have undergone the same procedure with successful results. The pictures are taken before the procedure and after the procedure at a time when the post-operative swelling and bruising have subsided, and the final outcomes of abdominoplasty are visible.
The surgeon will obtain these images with clear consent of the patient and present them to new patients in a discreet manner. The surgeon may not reveal the patient’s identity according to standard norms. The only reason for the surgeon to display these images is to help the new patients acquire clarity on tummy tuck surgery outcomes. Now in this case these images are not currently present on the website but that does not mean a member of Dr. Gonzales’s staff or his digital marketing professional cannot put them on the website any day of the week.
Certain patients choose to combine their tummy tuck with other procedures such as liposuction or body lift. The surgeon can enable the patient to make an appropriate decision by presenting before and after images of various combination procedures to them.
Developing Realistic Expectations
In general, patients with a positive mindset, clear cosmetic goals, and realistic expectations will achieve the highest levels of satisfaction from any cosmetic procedure. Therefore, an experienced plastic surgeon may ask you to go through as many tummy tuck before and after images as they can before you decide to go ahead with the procedure.
Combining Pictures with Text
New patients may find it beneficial if descriptive text detailing the procedure, the reasons for which it was performed, and how it achieved the patient’s goals accompanies tummy tuck before and after photos.
The surgeon can effectively present a past patient’s treatment journey through accurate and concise descriptions. Descriptive text can be an integral element of before and after photo galleries because patients do connect better with images, but stories enable them to recall the associated details correctly.
Sharing the Images Online
The surgeon may choose to share tummy tuck before and after images online in the following ways:
- Building an Online Image Gallery: Develop a before and after image gallery on the practice website or blog which has not occurred yet but again, this aspect of websites can be implemented without that much trouble. You can ask to see these images during the consultation which you must sign up for – for many pivotal reasons not just this one.
- Developing Visual Portfolios: Create a picture portfolio comprising before and after images of a tummy tuck or another procedure that the new patient is considering.
- Adding Images to Blog Posts: Patients gather visual evidence of the procedure results by viewing the associated images in a blog post.
- Posting on Social Media Platforms: Photographs can be used effectively to optimize social media posts. But, it’s critical to use discretion when posting on public forums.
Social sharing of tummy tuck before and after photos can be an avenue to educate patients as well as serve a promotional tool for the surgeon and their practice. It is a perspicacious way for the surgeon to display their skills and expertise while educating their patients on complex plastic surgeries such as tummy tuck.
