Before deciding to undergo plastic surgery or an aesthetic procedure, you should ask your board-certified plastic surgeon to see before and after photos of their previous patients. Viewing a surgeon’s work will tell you a lot about their skill level, experience, and artistry. Make sure to ask to see images of results similar to what you desire. Seeing examples will give you a better sense of what results are realistic and give you a good indication of whether you and your surgeon are on the same page.
Before and after photos are also a great jumping-off point for your surgeon search. Head to our before and after photo gallery to browse pictures from our members. You can filter the images by procedure, age, gender, height, weight, and skin type to find a patient most similar to you. Or you can use the location filter to narrow down to surgeons in your area.
While before and after photos should be part of your vetting process, it’s not the only step. As always, it’s important to choose a plastic surgeon with the proper credentials, certifications, and training. Use our find a surgeon feature to find a qualified aesthetic plastic surgeon near you.
