Sedentary lifestyle, aging, weight loss, and pregnancy can cause the skin in your mid-section to become loose. It can be difficult to get a tighter and firmer abdomen with exercise and diet alone. Tummy tuck cosmetic surgery is a proven solution for answering this condition with sustainable results. During initial consultation, your surgeon will establish your candidacy and recommend tummy tuck or abdominoplasty for you.
Some treatment providers present tummy tuck cosmetic surgery before and after photographs as well during the initial consultation. These images can be useful in clearing doubts about the procedure.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery and Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provide tummy tuck surgery to patients in greater Washington DC area.
Understanding Tummy Tuck Before and After Pictures
Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty before and after images refer to a group of pictures that pertain to a prior patient that underwent the same procedure with successful results. The images are taken before and after the surgery at a time when swelling and bruising have resolved. The images highlight the full effects of the procedure.
The treatment provider will take these images with the express consent of the patient and present them to new patients in a discreet and appropriate manner. The patient’s identity is kept confidential. The sole purpose of this exercise is to help new patients understand what tummy tuck is all about. The surgeon will show you these images to help you make an informed decision.
The images serve as a visual aid to help potential patients understand what a procedure can and cannot do for them. What needs to be mentioned is the convenience factor. We have convenience stores, but we also have the internet which enables anyone with internet access, which is not too hard to come by, to see these images. You can view these images from a boat in the Pacific or at your supermarket coffee shop – sitting in any one of the seats.
You can use these images to make a critical decision about your life without anyone in your life knowing. That’s convenient!
Advantages of Tummy Tuck Before and After Images
You may not be aware how a new cosmetic procedure can affect your overall appearance. You may want to know whether it can help you attain your unique aesthetic goals or not. Tummy tuck before and after pictures can help you make the right decision.
Many patients require circumferential tummy tuck plastic surgery procedure that involves treating flanks while others may only require limited tightening in their lower abdominal area. This is also called a partial abdominoplasty. Your surgeon will create a personalized surgical plan based on your cosmetic goals.
Transparency is the key here as well – in addition to the internet. These images are digital in nature and with all those pixels you can easily apply what you see on the screen and apply that to your own body. This means you know what you are signing up for which means you can ask other poignant questions during the consultation which can enhance this experience on a number of levels.
Dr. Sundin believes in transparency which is why he’s so successful and has had so many satisfied patients from all walks of life. Some politicians and celebrities may not be transparent but in this industry – being vague is not that suitable.
Setting Reasonable Expectations
In every cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important for a patient to have a positive mindset and clear cosmetic goals. Patients should also have reasonable expectations. Your surgeon will be able to help you set realistic expectations by showing abdominoplasty before and after pictures. You would know what the treatment can and cannot do for you after looking at these images.
Sharing Online Images on Social Media Platforms
Treatment providers can share tummy tuck before and after images on photo sharing platforms, like Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram. This can be helpful in providing information to potential patients that are interested in the procedure.
Tummy tuck before and after images posted on social media can be reviewed by new patients even before they visit the surgeon’s office for an initial consultation. Cosmetic surgeons at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery and Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center receive patients from greater Washington DC area for abdominoplasty.
