Eyes are one of the most prominent features of the face. Signs of aging around the eyelids or any anomaly in the eye area will be conspicuously noticeable and make a significant impact on the facial aesthetics. The condition can easily be corrected with a relatively minor surgery called blepharoplasty. The surgery is less invasive, but still highly sensitive and intricate because it involves the eyes.
Prior to making a decision on blepharoplasty or eyelid cosmetic surgery, a candidate should review blepharoplasty before and after pictures. An experienced surgeon will usually ensure that these pictures are made available to a patient during the initial consultation process. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala provides blepharoplasty and other procedures to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby locations.
What are Blepharoplasty Before and After Photos?
Before and after photos in case of blepharoplasty refer to a pair or group of images pertaining to a previous patient who has received the surgery successfully. The images include photos taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a time when swelling and bruising has disappeared and full effects of the surgery are visible. The surgeon will take these photos with the patient’s consent and make sure that these are used in a discreet way for other patients.
The only purpose of eyelid cosmetic surgery before and after photos is to serve as a useful aid for new patient who need to understand various aspects of the procedure. The surgeon will explain to them about the aesthetics of eyelid surgery and what it can or cannot do for them. The intent is to help new patients make an educated and well-informed choice about blepharoplasty. The surgeon never wants their patient to be caught off guard after the surgery or shocked about what has occurred.
This is a terrible situation for any surgeon and something they best hope to avoid. No one going into cosmetic surgery should be ignorant about what to expect on a fundamental basis. This is why pictures are showed and aspects are explained as best as possible and why the patient must sign off on the surgery before it begins, certainly verbally.
When a new patient walks into the office of a plastic surgeon to seek consultation on blepharoplasty, they may not necessarily have a clear idea about how the procedure may improve their eye appearance or meet their personal aesthetic goals. The surgeon will use a set of blepharoplasty before and after photos (briefly mentioned right above) to provide a better understanding of the potential effectiveness of this surgery.
Some patients may need lower or upper eyelid surgery, while some others may need a combination of the two. In some cases, an additional procedure such as brow lift may be recommended. In all such situations, the patient can make better decisions when these pictures are made available. Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding areas for blepharoplasty.
Most satisfactory outcomes in aesthetic procedures are usually achieved in cases where the patient is affirmative, has clear set of priorities and realistic expectations from the surgery. Blepharoplasty ‘before and after’ photographs will help to achieve these goals. Patients will know what to expect and what not to expect from the surgery, and will take a moderate view of the procedure.
The plastic surgeon may upload these pictures on their practice website. New patients may simply access these photos online and review the potential results even before they are ready to seek a personal consultation at the surgeon’s office.
