Here are some suggestions for potential plastic surgery patients for looking through plastic surgery before and after photo galleries.
1- Check if the before and after photos are matching in lighting, camera distance, and posture. In facial procedures check if make up has been added.
2- How long after surgery were the photos were taken? The longer the time from surgery the more realistic of the outcome since it takes a certain amount of time for the swelling to subside for different procedures.
3- Check if the photos are for real patients or if they were models.
4- Check if the photos belong to the surgeon you are seeing or to the practice; i.e. the procedures were performed by another surgeon in the practice.
