Neck lift surgery before and after photos are intended to demonstrate to prospective patients examples of what patients may expect following neck rejuvenation surgery. Patients should take advantage of neck lift before and after photos provided by surgeons which displays the results that they can achieve.
Patient’s surgery before and after photos should display chiseled neck lines that are refined in appearance. Neck lift surgery before and after photos should have any and all fullness of the upper neck region eliminated.
In addition, patients should demonstrate resolution of skin redundancy, i.e. the turkey neck. Patients viewing neck lift surgery before and after photos should demand to see photos taken from five different views.
The various views should include the front view, two oblique views (taken from a 45 degree view), and from the sides (called the profile view). All five views are critical since they demonstrate all of the angles so that contour improvements and incision lines may be evaluated.
The surgery before and after photos should also be obtained using the same background and lighting so that before and after photos can be compared fairly. For example, any changes in lighting can affect evaluation of skin redundancy; if photos are overexposed, it can minimize appreciation of skin redundancy.
Finally, patients must have the same angulation of their neck lift surgery before and after photos.
It is intuitive to appreciate that if your head is up, it is going to tighten the neck skin and conversely if your head is down it will loosen the neck skin making it look worse that it is.
In general, patients are placed in a horizontal plane for photography as dictated by the Frankfort Horizontal Plane, a medical term that defines the horizontal plane.
The goal of neck lift surgery before and after photos is to provide images of patients that are normalized so that you are comparing apples to apples!
