It is a very personal decision to undergo breast augmentation plastic surgery. A patient should make this decision only after learning as much as she can about the procedure.
Women considering breast enhancement surgery may find the answers to many questions on the surgeon’s website. However, the best source of information in a specific case is a detailed, one-on-one consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
At the time of the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will display breast augmentation before and after pictures to the patient to help them understand the potential outcomes of the procedure but in this case Dr. Sundin’s website provides ample pictures for anyone to see.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides breast implant surgery to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding communities.
What are Breast Augmentation Before and After Photos
Breast augmentation ‘before and after’ pictures are a pair or group of images of previous patients who have undergone the same procedure with successful results.
These pictures are taken prior to the procedure and after the augmentation surgery at a time when the post-op swelling and bruising have subsided, and the complete outcomes of the surgical procedure manifest.
The surgeon will acquire these pictures with the express consent of the patient and show them to prospective patients in a discreet and judicious manner. In addition, the surgeon will not reveal the patient’s identity as per standard norms.
Patients are understandably anxious about how breast augmentation will affect their overall body shape. The surgeon can display breast augmentation ‘before and after’ images to offer reassurance to a new patient on whether it is a suitable procedure for them capable of addressing their body-related cosmetic goals.
Some patients may only need limited correction with a surgical procedure such as breast augmentation using fat transfer technique. Other patients may require a traditional breast implant plastic surgery in combination with a tummy tuck or a breast lift.
Irrespective of the situation, the patient can make the most judicious decision after viewing before and after photos.
This will be mentioned again but it really cannot be mentioned enough. Using the devices you probably already have (computer, smart phone, and so on) you can see these poignant pictures.
These pictures are so revealing and clear you can apply them to your own situation. Since the pictures are so high quality you can almost predict the future if you go through with this procedure. As long as you have access to the Internet and with 4G and 5G and so on, you can see these pictures and no one else even has to know what you are pondering.
Combining Pictures with Text
If descriptive text explaining the procedure, the reasons for which it was performed, and how it addressed the unique needs of the patient accompanies breast augmentation before and after images, it can be very beneficial to new patients.
Clear, concise, and succinct descriptions allow the surgeon to present the journey of a previous patient. Descriptive text can be an integral part of before and after image galleries as patients connect better with photos while stories enable them to remember the associated details more precisely.
Sharing Your Images
Surgeons may share the images online in the following ways:
- Website Galleries: Developing a before and after gallery on the practice website. This is certainly the case here. The website is well endowed. The awesome thing is is that anyone can see these pictures from anywhere. You can be in Jejudo or at a Culver’s restaurant, it does not matter, viewing these images.
- Portfolios: Creating a picture portfolio to showcase to new patients considering the same procedure.
- Blog Posts: Adding images to a blog post is an appropriate way to offer new patients visual documentation of procedure results.
- Social Media Platforms: Images are an effective way to optimize social media posts. But it is crucial to use discretion when posting on public platforms.
A comprehensive ‘before and after’ image gallery can be an educational as well as a promotional tool for the surgeon and their practice. It is a channel to display their expertise and abilities while educating new patients on complex plastic surgeries such as breast augmentation.
