Computer Imaging in Plastic Surgery

Are the pictures on the plastic surgeon’s website real???

It depends on the website & the surgeon. Photographs and images on websites should be properly labeled as actual patients or models. Photographs, either online or in-person, may be misleading, due to variations in lighting, patient position, photo angle, camera, makeup, or computer manipulation.

It is relatively easy to simulate plastic surgery on the computer. Simple digital imaging software can provide before and after pictures of plastic surgery. Some surgeons simulate surgery with patients in-person, while some plastic surgeons recommend a followup appointment to review computer imaging.

Anyone considering facial plastic surgery should be doing their homework, and not base the final decision on the surgeon’s website pictures alone.
