Liquid LiftSo you’re ready to take the plunge and have breast augmentation surgery. Once you’ve made the decision to do it, it’s time to explore your options. Silicone or saline? Under or over the muscle? Natural looking or fake looking? These are all questions that you will ultimately have to decide, so a consultation with a Scottsdale, AZ. Cosmetic Surgeon is a perfect first step.

Decisions can be made easier by viewing before and after photos at your cosmetic surgeon’s office. Dr. Rochlin can go over these photos with you at your comprehensive consultation and decide on options that are perfectly suited to your needs.

The Three Angles of Good Before and After Photos

Good before and after photos will be taken from three angles: from the front and from each side.

The photos should be centered, cropped and lit in a similar way so that you can be sure you are getting a good comparison. If they are shadowed, or look ‘too perfect’, they may have been retouched. They shouldn’t look like an airbrushed model in a magazine, they should look like they were taken in a medical office.

Do you want a doctor who is a professional photographer and expert at Photoshop or one who’s surgical work can stand on it’s own and showcase their patients naturally?

Are the Photos Their Own?

Make sure that the photos you view in the doctor’s office are of their own patients. Above all, you want to make sure that your surgeon is trained, certified and experienced in performing the procedure you are about to have.

Shop Around and Know your Options

Look at a range of different types of implants, and different placements so that you understand the differences between each type, size, placement and style. When you find one that you think is right for you, ask about what type of implant it is, the placement, and if your surgeon thinks it will work for your body.

Everybody is Different

Remember that each person is different, and that what might look great on one woman might not necessarily look great on you. If you are petite, especially, large breast implants might be difficult. Trust your cosmetic surgeon to advise you on what is best for you to get the results you want.

Make sure you are happy with your final decision. If you have any doubts, take your time and look at more photos. Find out more. Ask questions. Your surgeon will be happy to answer any you might have.
