Liposuction is a fat reduction cosmetic surgery procedure aimed at improving the body contours. The procedure may be performed independently or in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures. Both traditional and modern surgical techniques are applied for liposuction, depending on the decision of the cosmetic surgeon.
Dr. Bryson Richards is an experienced plastic surgeon providing liposuction and other procedures to patients in Las Vegas and other areas. During the initial consultation, Dr. Richards will discuss various aspects of the procedure and show liposuction before and after photographs to the patient. His goal is to ensure that the patient makes a well-informed decision with full knowledge of what liposuction can or cannot do for them.
What are Liposuction Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of liposuction cosmetic surgery refer to a pair or group of images belonging to a previous patient who has been through liposuction already with successful results. The images are taken before the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when swelling and bruising is subsided and full effects of the surgery have appeared. The plastic surgeon will take these photos with the consent of the patient, and present them before new patients in a discreet way.
The goal of the surgeon is to educate new patients about various aspects of liposuction surgery with the help of these photos. Liposuction ‘before and after’ images serve as an effective visual aid to show the potential aesthetic usefulness of the procedure. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon in Las Vegas, Dr. Richards likes to provide his patients with access to before and after pictures at the time of pre-op consultation.
A new patient seeking liposuction plastic surgery may not necessarily have a complete idea of what the procedure can or cannot do for them. Some patients may need a more extensive liposuction procedure in multiple areas of the body, while others may need only a limited liposuction in a specific body part.
The surgeon may recommend liposuction as an additional procedure along with a tummy tuck, breast reduction, mommy makeover or other procedures in some cases. For a patient, it can get confusing as to what may be the best treatment approach in their case. This is where the surgeon can make use of liposuction before and after photos in order to help the patient make the right choices.
Having Realistic Expectations
Any fantastic plastic surgeon will always like to ensure that the patient has a positive mindset, clear cosmetic goals, and realistic expectations before going ahead with the surgery. Liposuction ‘before and after’ photos can help in this process. The patient will know clearly what to expect and what not to expect from the outcome of the procedure. This avoids any chance of disappointment later on.
The surgeon has an option to provide liposuction before and after photos on their practice website. New patients can review the photos online in the privacy of their home or office even before they make up their mind about visiting the surgeon for a consultation.
