Pre-Surgery Computer Images Show Potential Outcomes of Facial Plastic Procedures

April 12, 2019

Considering facial plastic surgery but wondering what your outcome might look like? You are not alone. People seeking a plastic surgeon often times search online in hopes of viewing photos that illustrate great surgical results. And, they don’t just want to view a couple of photos – they want to see multiple sets of “before and afters” to help guide their decision.

Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Stephen Perkins, utilizes computer imaging during his surgery consultations. This powerful tool enables prospective patients to view current photos of themselves showing multiple views. These photos are placed side-by-side with views of the expected surgical result – before the patient actually commits to the procedure.

“Computer imaging is an important tool because patients are able to see how natural-looking their result can be. It enables us to work together to create an outcome that enhances their facial features and meets their surgical goals. Facial plastic surgery should never result in an ‘operated’ look – you always want an outcome that yields a more rested and refreshed version of yourself. Patients like the thought of viewing their result prior to the procedure; they can see that it still looks like them, says Dr. Perkins.

While it provides an illustration of the outcome and does not capture every detail, imaging makes it easier for patients to visualize their anticipated results. When you’re searching for a facial plastic surgeon, don’t assume all of them utilize imaging. According to Dr. Perkins, many do not. Dr. Perkins also has iPads available during the consultation so patients can scroll through multiple sets of before and after photos of actual patients of his that have undergone the surgery you are considering.
