Before and after photos are visible evidence of a plastic surgeon’s artistic skill. The collection of photographs of current and former patients acts as a portfolio to show prospective rhinoplasty candidates not only the surgeon’s results, but also his or her aesthetic. As a potential patient, it is vital that you not overlook them.
Highly qualified rhinoplasty specialists, such as Dr. Nassif and Dr. Yoo, have an extensive collection of before and after photos to showcase their work. Patients are able to locate photos of other individuals who have a similar facial anatomy or nasal malformation. There are many examples depicting patients of varied ethnicities, including men and women of Asian, African American, Middle Eastern, and Hispanic decent. Individuals in need of correction after a previous rhinoplasty procedure may be particularly interested to view photos of patients with similar problems who underwent revision by the surgeons of this practice.
If you cannot find exactly what you are looking for on this website, ask to see more before and after photographs during your consultation. Please be cautious when consulting with a plastic surgeon who does not have before and after photos, or whose pictures seem to portray a tendency to produce “cookie cutter” noses.
Your Before and After Photos
During your consultation, you will have photographs taken of your face and nose from several angles. The before images can be digitally altered using state-of-the-art computer software to show you the possible outcomes of your rhinoplasty surgery. The actual results may vary from those created on the computer, but the surgeons are able to come very close. This is a great opportunity to make sure you are on the same page with your surgeon in regards to your aesthetic goals. Photographs taken after the procedure will show the progress of your nasal appearance after surgery.
