Someone searching for a facial plastic surgeon to perform eyelid surgery typically relies on a few resources to narrow their options. Patient reviews posted on reputable third-party websites provide valuable information, as does the surgeon’s own website. Another popular tool is eyelid surgery before and after photos. Our Denver, CO, patients often remark on the results they see in our gallery of before and after photos.
Whether you’re considering eyelid surgery or another procedure, knowing what to look for in a plastic surgeon’s before and after photos is important to ensure you’re seeing realistic outcomes. Here are a few tips:
- Be mindful of editing: How can you recognize if photos have been altered? Compare several different photos of the same procedure, if possible. A patient’s skin texture can indicate if photos are manipulated. If skin appears unnaturally smooth, for example, it could be a sign that the photo has been edited.
- Look for multiple angles: Eyelid surgery patients often combine the operation with other surgeries, such as a facelift, and it’s helpful to have numerous angles to evaluate the results. These photos offer a good example.
- Notice the lighting: Shadows or low light in a “before” photo that disappears in the “after” photo means you’re not comparing apples to apples.
