Gallery?

I have always been critical of advertisements featuring “before and after” photos.   There are so many ways in which photos can give a false impression:

  • Altered lighting.   Flash photography smooths wrinkles
  • Distance from camera.  “After” photos subtley further away look slimmer
  • Different camera focal lengths.  Shorter focal lengths exaggerate size of body parts closer to the camera.
  • Body posture.  Neck profiles look better with the chin up.  Oblique shots of breasts always look better than front on.
  • Makeup.  No make up before : makeup after.
  • Hairstyle.
  • Clothing
  • Facial animation.
All surgeons have some less-than-ideal results but you don’t see these in galleries!For a selection of typical before and after pictures, click here to go to the website of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons
