At the time of pre-op consultation, the body contouring surgeon will explain all aspects of the procedure to the patient and may also present body lift before and after photographs.
The first concern of a responsible surgeon will be to educate the patient about the body lift surgery and help them make a well-considered decision. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides body lift and various other cosmetic procedures to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding communities.
What are Body Lift Before and After Images?
Before and after images in case of body lift plastic surgery refer to a pair or group of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has gone through the same procedure with a satisfactory outcome. The pictures include images taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the post-operative swelling and bruising is completely resolved and full effects of body lift have been established.
The surgeon will take care to ensure that the photographs are obtained with the proper consent of the patient and presented before new patients in an appropriate and discreet way. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed as per the settled protocol. The surgeon’s only goal in this endeavor is to utilize these pictures as a visual tool to explain the potential effectiveness of body lift procedure to new patients.
Body lift surgery is a major procedure, and it is natural for a new patient to feel apprehensive about the outcome. They would like to be sure whether the procedure will meet their personal cosmetic needs, and how it may impact their overall appearance. Some patients may only need lower body lift, while some others may want to combine it with upper body lift procedures.
In each case, the patient will be in a better position to make the right choices when they have access to body lift before and after photos. Fantastic and sagacious female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas, and nearby areas for body lift surgery.
