Be Certain You Are Comparing Apples to Apples when Viewing Rhinoplasty Pre/Post Op Photos

Before & after photos should be helpful to you when choosing your surgeon. It is true that surgeons usually show their best results, but if there are a large number of good results shown, it usually means the surgeon does a lot of rhinoplasties and gets a number of good results.

However, there are several other things you should look for to make certain the surgeon is showing you a true representation of his work. The way the photos are presented give you some idea of the way the surgeon goes about this work.

For instance: Most before & after photos are kept in some form of an album. If so, the album should be presented in an attractive, neat, well-organized fashion.

There should be numerous photographs that are at least 4X6″ in size of different types of noses. There should be at least 2 different views of the patient (front & side, front & oblique, side & basal, etc).

Four different views are even better because they give you the most accurate representation of how the patient really looks.

The pre & post op of the same view should have the heads in the same position, the same facial expressions, i.e., both smiling or neither smiling, the same amount of facial makeup and the backgrounds should be the same.

A soft blue or gray background is usually preferred. this allows you to compare apples to apples. Taking good representative photographs is difficult and usually requires a person who has been trained in the art.

If the surgeon’s before & after photo galleries meet the above criteria, it means he is very compulsive, particular, pays attention to details and it shows rhinoplasty is a procedure he really cares about and does frequently.

These are good characteristics for a plastic surgeon although there are other characteristics that are important to evaluate such as his reputation, bedside manner, and office staff, etc. (Jack P. Gunter, MD, Dallas Plastic Surgeon)

Rhinoplasty befores/afters are a good starting point in evaluation.

You should see multiple different views at least 1 year after surgery. Having done noses for more than 30 years, we have patients meet with other nose patients in the office the same day.

You should like the surgeon’s noses since that is what you will be getting. (Toby Mayer, MD, Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon)

I think you really answered your own question in a way. Every nose is different and therefore it would be difficult to show you an exact representative case that represents what you need. Look for an accomplished rhinoplasty surgeon. (Steven Wallach, MD, Manhattan Plastic Surgeon)

All noses are different. You will not find pictures of a nose exactly like yours. However over the last 35 years, patients continue to tell me the photos help. Meet with prospective surgeon, see multiple views of multiple patients, and then decide if their aesthetic tastes are compatible with yours. (Richard W. Fleming, MD, Beverly Hills Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Picking or choosing the “right” cosmetic surgeon is a very personal journey. Of course seeing photos and even live patients help. But you are the final decision maker.

Feel at ease with the surgeon, you must be confident the surgeon can preform your surgery. (Darryl J. Blinski, MD, Miami Plastic Surgeon)

Before and after photos are a good way to get acquainted with the surgeons work. What you also might want to consider is having computer imaging done to get an idea of what your nose will look like after the surgery.

You have to have a degree of comfort with your surgeon, the only way to know that is to meet with a surgeon in person. You can also talk to other patients who have had rhinoplasty with that surgeon. So there are other factors besides before and after photos, but that is a good place to start. (Oleh Slupchynskyj, MD, FACS, New York Facial Plastic Surgeon)

Do you have 5 or 6 years? Looking at photos is only one important aspect of evaluatiing a surgeon and his/her skills.Sometimes a realtively complex/dramatic nose can be a relatively simple operation (i.e., big hump) whereas as relatively simple nose can be incredibly complex to repair (i.e., secondary rhinoplasty).

Knowing the difference from photographs alone is not that easy and it tells only a small part of the whole problem. The patient’s history and physical examination is very important and cannot be ignored. In general, the more views the better. However, for a variety of reasons, it is often not practical to include all the views. (Otto Joseph Placik, MD, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)
