Before and After photos


The way technology is today, it really is hard to know if someone photoshopped their pictures.  I think you need to meet with the surgeon and their staff and judge their integrity.  At the consultation, I would suggest talking to other patients in the waiting room as some of they may be post-op and you can judge the results for yourself.  Also, please make sure that you are seeing a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  A lot of work goes into earning board certification and I would doubt that any board certified surgeon would risk their reputation by posting edited photos.


Good luck.
