A neck lift is one of the popular cosmetic surgery procedures designed to enhance the neck appearance through tightening of skin and underlying muscles. During the initial consultation, the surgeon will explain various aspects of the procedure and may also present neck lift before and after photographs.
A responsible surgeon will strive to ensure that the patient is thoroughly educated about the relevant aspects of the procedure and makes a well-considered decision. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides neck lift to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding locations.
What are Neck Lift Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of neck lift cosmetic surgery refer to a pair or group of images pertaining to an earlier patient who has undergone the same procedure with satisfactory results. The pictures include images taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the post-operative swelling and bruising is eliminated and full results of neck lift are visible.
The plastic surgeon will ensure that neck lift photographs are obtained with the patient’s full consent, and presented before others in a discreet manner. The only purpose behind this exercise is to educate new patients about the pros and cons of neck lift and help them make the right choice.
When a new patient is considering neck lift, they may only have a vague idea of how the procedure may impact their overall facial look, and how it will help meet their personal aesthetic goals. Some patients may need only neck liposuction, while others may need skin tightening as well as muscle restructuring.
In some cases the surgeon may recommend neck lift in combination with facelift or other invasive or non-invasive procedures. In all such situations, the patient can find it confusing to choose the best options. This is where the surgeon may make use of neck lift before and after photos to help the patient make appropriate decisions.
Digital technology has touched us all. Many times digital technology is used for pleasure and entertainment but the medical community, among so many others, knows that digital technology can be used by patients to see the results of past surgeries and to see what the surgeon will do to them and what to expect. Now patients can make poignant decisions without ever even speaking to the surgeon and if they choose to speak to the surgeon, the conversation will probably be much shorter since they already know what to expect. A digital picture speaks even more than a thousand words.
Having Reasonable Expectations
Patients should have a clear idea that neck lift will not make a dramatic improvement to the overall facial appearance because it is confined only to the neck. While it can give the impression of an overall slimmer profile, it is important to have reasonable expectations. This can be ensured with neck lift plastic surgery before and after photos.
The patient will know exactly what the procedure can or cannot do for them when they review these photos carefully. This will mitigate the risk of any disappointment occurring at a later stage. Dr. Kim receives patients from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby areas for neck lift.
Online Image Gallery
The cosmetic surgeon has the choice to upload neck lift before and after photos to a dedicated online Image Gallery on their practice website. New patients can conveniently access the photos online in the privacy and comfort of their home or office and then make up their mind about seeking a personal neck lift consultation with the surgeon.
