Rhinoplasty is one of the vital cosmetic surgery procedures to enhance the shape and size of the nose and improve overall facial appearance and balance.
During the initial consultation, the nose surgeon will discuss with the patient about various aspects of the procedure. The surgeon may also present rhinoplasty plastic surgery before and after photographs of previous patients at this time.
The first goal of a responsible surgeon will be to educate the patient about rhinoplasty and help them make a well-considered choice. Before and after photos can play an important role here. Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey R. Keyes provides rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, California, and surrounding communities across the horizon.
What are Rhinoplasty Before and After Photographs?
Before and after photographs in case of rhinoplasty plastic surgery refer to a pair or group of images belonging to a past patient who has undergone the same procedure with a successful outcome. The images include photographs taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a time when the post-operative swelling and bruising has been resolved and the new, sculpted nose contours have firmed up.
The surgeon will take care to ensure that the photos are obtained with the consent of the patient and shown to new patients in an appropriate and discreet way. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed as per the established protocol. The surgeon’s only purpose in this endeavor is to use these photographs as a visual aid to educate new patients about the potential benefits of rhinoplasty.
Any procedure related to the face is more sensitive for patients because the face is aesthetically the most prominent and visible part of the body. The patient may have concerns whether rhinoplasty will meet their personal aesthetic needs, and how it may affect the overall facial appearance and the proportion of the nose with other facial features.
Some patients may only need a limited tissue modification in the nose, while some others may require significant nose reshaping or reconstruction. Sometimes the surgeon may recommend rhinoplasty in conjunction with chin augmentation or another surgical or non-surgical procedure. In each case, the patient can make better decisions when they have access to rhinoplasty before and after photos.
One of the key aspects of this topic is digital technology. The very fact that any patient can see these amazing pictures from the confines of their own home or their own office at work is breathtaking. Now someone can make a pivotal decision without anyone else being the wiser.
Digital technology has reshaped industry after industry and the plastic surgery industry is certainly one of them. The main benefit is humanity. Patients have more power than they ever did before since they can look at these detailed pictures and apply what they see to their own features and situation. If they choose to sign up for a particular procedure such as rhinoplasty they have a better comprehension on what they are getting themselves into. This lessens their anxiety which is better for everyone involved.
An experienced surgeon will understand the role before and after photos can play in helping new patients form reasonable expectations about surgeries such as rhinoplasty. The surgeon may prefer to present rhinoplasty before and after photos at the first appointment. They will encourage the patient to review the photos at leisure before making a final decision.
This personalized effort to educate the patient often works well for everyone. The patient is in a better position to appreciate the final results, and achieve higher satisfaction levels in the end. Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Geoffrey Keyes receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, California, and nearby areas for rhinoplasty.
The surgeon may also choose to provide rhinoplasty before and after photos on their practice website, or share the photos via social media to create more awareness about rhinoplasty in which Dr. Keyes does with precision.
