A well-done Mommy Makeover is more than the sum of its parts... When designed and executed by a proficient and experienced surgeon, the breast enhancement compliments the tummy and vice versa... everything looks like it belongs together and as though it was always meant to be that way.
In poor outcomes from mommy makeover procedures, the breasts may look better than before, and the tummy may look flatter, but when you look at the woman as a whole, things just don't look pretty or natural...
Most surgeons can perform the steps in a mommy makeover- successfully completing the operations... Fewer are able to reliably and consistently achieve lovely outcomes- the attractive feminine form requires talent.
It reminds me of my own attempts at recreating some of the amazing dishes I read about in culinary magazines or that I enjoyed in my travels... I can follow the recipe and complete the objective of cooking the dish, but it just doesn't look like it did in the restaurant... and almost never tastes as good as I remember it did when Chef KingofGastronomy made it.
So my advice is to look at the whole patient in the photo. You wouldn't be happy if your breasts look good when you cover up the rest of you, and your tummy looks good if you take a photo only of it, but then people see the two together they think you don't look so good...
Finally, it is very important to realize that while photos are accurate representations of what was accomplished at surgery, they do not convey the degree to which the patient's goals were met. The photo may look great to you, but not be what the patient wanted... or you may think it looks unappealing but in reality the surgeon achieved EXACTLY what the patient in the photo wanted... Photos don't say anything about the surgeon's ability to understand what the patient wanted and to deliver that outcome.
So while I think looking at photos is very important as a means of evaluating a surgeon's skill, I also strongly advise you to read patient testimonials (in order to understand how the surgeon's patients feel about them and how successfully they achieved the patient's goals), learn about the anesthesia provider, and also about the facility where your procedure will be performed.
