However, photographs are definitely an integral part of our consultation process as it’s a very good way to get a feel of the aesthetic approach of your surgeon. During your consultation you will have the opportunity to evaluate many pictures showing our surgical approach and results. These are pictures of many of our patients that have given permission for their images to be shown to other patients in person and in confidence. We always try to show you pictures of patients with similar anatomy to yours. At the same time, it is important for patients to understand that generally it is impossible to show you exactly how you will look after your surgery and the reason is simply the anatomic individualization of every human face and body. It is simply not possible for two persons’ noses, breasts or other areas to look exactly the same and although the face or body differences may sometimes appear minimal, they may have a significant impact in the surgical planning and in the potential surgical result.
