Thigh lift plastic surgery is a major lower body sculpting procedure. At the time of the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will inform the patient on various facets of the procedure.
Some surgeons may also choose to show the patient thigh lift cosmetic surgery before and after images during the consultation.
The primary goal of a dedicated surgeon should be to educate the patient about thigh lift and enable them to make a judicious choice. Before and after images can play an important role in this matter.
Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Kristi Hustak provides thigh lift to patients in Houston, Texas, and surrounding locations.
What are Thigh Lift Before and After Photos?
Thigh lift before and after images refer to a pair or group of pictures of previous patients who underwent the same surgery with effective outcomes. These pictures are taken before the surgery and after the procedure at a time when the post-operative inflammation and bruising have resolved, and the new thigh contours are fully visible.
The surgeon will ensure that the images are taken with the express consent of the patient and shown to new patients in a judicious and discreet manner.
The identity of the patient will be kept private, according to standard norms. The only goal of the surgeon in displaying these images is to educate new patients on the potential outcomes of thigh lift surgery.
A thigh lift is a significant lower body sculpting cosmetic surgery. Patients are understandably anxious about how the procedure will impact their lower body contours and proportion, and whether it will actually help them meet their aesthetic goals. Some patients may only need an inner thigh lift, while others may require both lateral and medial thigh lift.
In some instances, thighplasty may have to be undertaken in combination with liposuction. Regardless of the case, the patient will be better positioned to make an appropriate decision upon viewing thigh lift before and after images.
These images can then be applied to the body of the patient and it’s much easier to do this because they are digital. Gone are the days when we have to rely on some ambiguous brochure with images that were faded and did not satisfy our need to know.
The consultation will satisfy you. Dr. Hustak wants you to be content if you agree to sign on the dotted line.
Keeping Realistic Expectations
Experienced surgeons understand the significance of before and after images in enabling new patients to develop realistic expectations about a procedure such as a thigh lift.
For this reason, in many cases, they may choose to showcase thigh lift before and after images during the initial appointment itself. The surgeon will encourage the patient to view these images carefully and then arrive at a final decision.
This simple initiative often ensures that the patient is better placed to appreciate the final outcomes. The risk of future disappointment from the procedure is reduced as well.
The surgeon may showcase thigh lift before and after images on the practice website, or even spread the pictures to a wider audience through social media platforms. This can create more awareness about body contouring surgery such as a thigh lift.
You certainly want to ask to see these images during the consultation if they are not on the site. This process is explained on the site but you can receive more salient details during the consultation. Dr. Hustak’s consultation are informative which is why she has a successful practice and she has so many patients that are impressed and happy with her work.
