Plastic surgeons performing facelift procedure need to explain several aspects of the procedure during the initial consultation. This is to help patients make an informed decision. Facelift surgeons may show patients before and after images of the procedure to stress on the effectiveness and end results of the surgery.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides facelift surgery to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and surrounding communities.
Pictures Speak Louder Than Words
Facelift ‘before and after’ images are helpful in portraying the true picture in front of patients in an effective manner. Surgeon will explain all aspects of the facelift procedure to the patient in detail verbally. However, words are difficult to understand and may sound incredulous. They are also open to interpretation.
Facelift cosmetic surgery pictures present compelling visual evidence. Barrier of language don’t prevent pictures from telling the true story. It’s fundamental that the treatment provider doesn’t photoshop or modify the images in any way that could mislead a patient. No matter how much trust the clinic has earned all that could be tossed away if this action was ever taken.
VIPS would never commit an act such as this which is why they are one of the pillars of the community. In the plastic surgical field – they have reached a very high pedestal based on their treatment of others – no matter if you agree to the treatment or surgery or decide you are not ready for this type of commitment yet.
Prospective Patients Find Visual Evidence Assuring
Surgeons that show before and after images of the surgery performed on previous patients feel more confident about the potential results. A majority of patients think if a surgery delivered successful outcome for others, then it will do the same for them as well. Facelift ‘before and after’ pictures provide fairly conclusive evidence for creating a relationship of transparency and trust between the patient and the surgeon.
Transparency is key here and VIPS knows how to achieve this. This can be said before their website is revealing. You can see these images anywhere in the world as long as you have internet capabilities. You can be in Cabo San Lucas or a watching a college baseball game, it really does not matter.
Adding Descriptive Text to Pictures
Patients find it useful when pictures are presented with descriptive words that explain the procedure. The text should represent why the procedure was undertaken and how exactly it addressed the concerns of the patient.
New patients can understand the surgical journey of previous patients in a better manner with succinct descriptions. Pictures allow new patients to connect better. Verbal explanations help them in recalling facts in a more accurate fashion. With that said, digital imagery enables someone to apply what they see on the screen and easily apply it to themselves.
This means the consultations can be easier and can make room for topics such as preparation and steps that need to be taken post-surgery. This is vital for a facelift for a number of reasons.
Sharing Images Online
Facelift before and after images can be shared by surgeons in the following manner for raising awareness about the potential benefits of the procedure:
- Galleries: Practice website can have a before and after gallery which is the case here as has been emphasized.
- Portfolio: Developing image portfolio for new patients looking for the same procedure.
- Blogs: Pictures support blog posts by providing visual evidence.
- Social media: Images are important optimization tools for posts on social media. However, discretion is paramount for images posted on public platforms.
The treatment provider can also create detailed before and after gallery as a promotional and educational channel. This can highlight the skills and expertise of the surgeon while informing potential patients about advanced cosmetic surgery procedures, such as facelift.
Setting Reasonable Expectations
Patients should have a positive mind frame, reasonable expectations, and concise cosmetic goals from the plastic surgery procedure. These attributes are helpful in enabling the patient to attain high satisfaction levels from the procedure.
Before and after images can help the patient understand what to expect from the procedure. Cosmetic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and nearby areas for facelift surgery.
