Looking through before-and-after photos is one of the first steps for many new breast augmentation patients in Phoenix and Scottsdale. Photos are extremely useful because not only do they show the results you can expect, but they also showcase a plastic surgeon’s talent. Before-and-after galleries are often a major deciding factor when it comes to surgeon selection. But what details should you be looking for when browsing through pictures?
Look for Common Traits
There are a few common traits worth keeping an eye on when looking at breast augmentation before-and-after pictures.
- Symmetry is one important issue, as it shows that the surgeon is skilled in choosing properly sized implants.
- Minimal scarring is also a good sign, as incision sites should be discreetly placed and properly healed.
- Proportions are also a major indicator of skill because each patient’s body is unique, and their results should reflect their natural body shape.
Look for Diversity and Consistency When Choosing a Breast Surgeon
A gallery that shows a diverse mix of patients of all ages and different ethnicities with beautiful results is a sign of a talented surgeon. Browse our before-and-after gallery if you’re looking for your own inspiration and breast surgeon.
When reviewing the gallery, keep in mind that before and after photos should be consistent with regards to patient positioning, lighting, and background. For example, if you see a breast photo gallery example where the before photo shows the patients arms down and the after “comparison” photo shows the patients arms up, this is not a fair comparison and should be considered potentially misleading.
