What are Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) Before and After Photos?
Eyelid surgery, clinically called blepharoplasty, is a procedure designed to enhance the appearance of eyes and restore a rejuvenated look. During the initial consultation, the cosmetic surgeon will explain various aspects of the surgery to help the patient make an informed decision.
The surgeon will usually make use of blepharoplasty before and after photographs to ensure that the patient understands how the procedure will impact their appearance. Dr. Eugene Kim is a leading plastic surgeon providing eyelid surgery and other procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and nearby locations.
What are Eyelid Surgery Before and After Images?
Before and after pictures in case of blepharoplasty refer to a pair or group of images belonging to an earlier patient who has received the same procedure with successful outcome. The images include pictures taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a time when the swelling has disappeared and full effects are visible.
The cosmetic surgeon will take the pictures with the patient’s consent and present them before other patients in a discreet manner. The surgeon’s only goal is to educate new patients about various aspects of the procedure, and provide them with a visual aid to understand the results clearly.
When a new patient chooses to undergo blepharoplasty, they may only have a vague notion of how the procedure may improve their appearance of eyes and face, and whether it would meet their personal aesthetic needs and goals. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend eyelid surgery in combination with brow lift or another facial procedure for better outcomes. Lower or upper eyelid surgery or both may have to be performed, depending on the patient’s needs.
In all such cases, it can be confusing for the patient to make the right choices. This is where the surgeon may utilize eyelid surgery before and after photos to help the patient make the best decisions. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Kim makes use of before and after photos for his patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding areas.
Knowing What to Expect
In a procedure such as blepharoplasty, most satisfactory outcomes can be achieved when the patient has formed realistic expectations. If the patient has misplaced expectations and wrong assumptions about the procedure, it can result in disappointment even if the surgery may have actually been performed very successfully.
Such risks of a misunderstanding can be mitigated when the surgeon uses blepharoplasty before and after photos. The patient will know clearly what to expect and what not to expect from the procedure.
The surgeon has the option to provide digitized versions of before and after images on their practice website. New patients can simply visit the “Photo Gallery” section of the site and review the pictures. Patients can have a fair idea about what the procedure can or cannot do for them even before they have actually visited the surgeon’s office for a personal consultation.
