Liposuction is the most popular body contouring cosmetic surgery procedure designed to reduce unwanted fat from specific areas. At the time of initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss all aspects of liposuction surgery, and may also present liposuction before and after photographs.
The first concern of the surgeon will be to educate the patient about liposuction and its potential benefits. Patients should make a well-informed decision after considering all aspects. Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides liposuction to patients in Houston, Texas and surrounding locations.
What are Liposuction Before and After Images?
Before and after images in case of liposuction plastic surgery refer to a pair or group of pictures belonging to an earlier patient who has received the same surgery with good results. The pictures include images taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the post-operative healing is completed and full effects of liposuction have appeared.
The surgeon will take care to ensure that the photographs are obtained with the patient’s proper consent. The patient’s identity may be kept confidential and the photos will be presented in a discreet manner before new patients. The only goal of the surgeon in this case is to explain the potential effectiveness of liposuction to new patients and help them make an informed choice.
Liposuction body contouring may be performed in a single area or multiple areas. Different surgical techniques may be adopted to achieve the patient’s unique aesthetic goals. For a new patient, it can be difficult at times to make the right decisions about the choice of technique, the extent of fat removal and the number of areas to be treated.
When the patient has access to liposuction before and after photos, they will be in a better position to visualize the effects and make more appropriate choices. The surgeon will usually encourage the patient to review as many before and after photos as possible in order to make the best decisions.
Experienced surgeons know that patients who have a positive frame of mind, clear cosmetic goals and reasonable expectations will usually achieve the highest satisfaction levels from any aesthetic procedure. Therefore, the surgeon may prefer to provide liposuction before and after photos at the very first appointment.
Once the patient has reviewed the photos, they will know clearly what to expect and what not to expect from the procedure. Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, but only a fat reduction procedure. When the patient is clear on all aspects, it will mitigate the risk of any misunderstanding or disappointment occurring at a later stage.
An independent plastic surgery practitioner would generally have their own practice website where they can upload liposuction before and after photos for free access to all. The surgeon may also choose to disseminate information and photos via their social media accounts such as Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Instagram, and perhaps even other social media outlets. Experienced female cosmetic surgeon Dr. Hustak receives patients from Houston, Texas and nearby areas for liposuction.
