The area surrounding the eyes is among the first facial sites to display aging signs. Blepharoplasty or eyelid cosmetic surgery can correct under-eye bags and droopy upper eyelids that develop with age.
This relatively minor plastic surgery can take years off a person’s appearance making it appear more youthful and rejuvenated.
The surgeon may show the patient before and after blepharoplasty photos of previous patients during the initial consultation. These pictures foster a relationship of transparency and trust between the eyelid surgeon and the patient. In addition, they allow the patient to view the possible results of the surgery and make a well-informed choice.
Board certified and astute female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides eyelid lift surgery to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding communities in this outstanding region of the US.
Visual Evidence for Prospective Patients
The patient may feel more reassured regarding the blepharoplasty if the surgeon presents them with before and after images of previous eyelid surgery patients. Upon viewing photos of previous patients and understanding the potential outcomes of eyelid surgery, the patient can make a more enlightened decision on the procedure.
Many new patients realize that if blepharoplasty offered aesthetically appealing outcomes to another patient, it could likely offer them similar results. This conclusive proof that ‘before and after’ pictures offer helps create trust and transparency between the surgeon and the patient.
Dr. Hustak believes in transparency. This is why there are so many poignant images of her stellar work on her website. This particular procedure is not on the website but that does not mean much since someone can perhaps see these images during the consultation. The consultation is mandatory anyhow.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
Eyelid surgery ‘before and after’ images can reveal the true picture to the patient in a more effective manner than words. The eyelid surgeon will offer in-depth information on the surgery orally as well. But words can be open to interpretation, prone to misunderstanding, and at times, simply unbelievable.
But before and after photos provide the patient with strong visual evidence. The barriers of language do not constrain images from telling the true story. However, the surgeon should not digitally enhance or photo-shop these images as doing so could mislead the patient.
The saying “A picture is worth more than a thousand words,” certainly holds true for eyelid lift plastic surgery before and after images.
Technology is amazing and this adage in quotes above means even more now since we don’t have to rely on some vague brochure or some dated Polaroid picture. Now images can be seen online or via a digital screen with more clarity than previous pictures could ever dream of. Ambiguity is gone. Now anyone who signs up to blepharoplasty or any other type of surgery here knows exactly what they are doing.
Everyone is on the same page now and in today’s world anyone has access to so much pivotal information. Consultations in the present day are so much more enlightening.
Social Media Use to Raise Awareness
Today, social media platforms enjoy near-universal usage daily. To increase public awareness of these surgeries by showcasing eyelid surgery before and after images, plastic surgeons can harness the mass appeal of the platforms.
Some popular photo sharing sites are Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, and Instagram. The surgeon can use these robust platforms to reach out and engage with their audience.
The effective use of eyelid surgery before and after pictures on social media can help the surgeon connect with thousands of people in their target audience. Furthermore, this demonstrable evidence helps the patient make a well-considered decision.
