What are Facelift Before and After Images?

A facelift ‘before and after images’ refer to a set of photographs pertaining to a previous patient who has undergone a facelift procedure. The set includes photographs taken prior to the surgery and at different stages after the surgery. These images can serve as an effective visual aid to help a new patient understand the facelift procedure clearly and make an informed decision about treatment.

Before and after pictures are taken discreetly and with the consent of the patient. The plastic surgeon will use these pictures during the initial consultation, and the only goal is to use these photos to educate a new patient about facelift. See Facelift Before and After Photos


A new patient may have only a vague idea of facelift surgery, and it can be difficult to explain the real effectiveness of the procedure in words. This is where before and after photos can play a key role and show visual results of the procedure. Some patients may be unsure whether to choose a facelift, a mini facelift or a procedure for the upper face only such as eyelid lift or brow lift. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend a facelift combined with a neck lift surgery.

The patient can gain a better perspective about various treatment options with the help of before and after photos. Dr. V makes sure that her patients in and around Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, and Warrenton are able to make informed choices using before and after photos of the procedure.

Expectations from a Facelift Surgery

In any cosmetic surgery procedure, it is very important for a patient to know clearly what the procedure can or cannot do for them. Despite the best explanations of the plastic surgeon, a patient may sometimes misinterpret the aesthetic goals that can be achieved with a certain procedure.

When a patient forms wrong expectations, the final results can be disappointing, even if the surgeon has performed the procedure very successfully. This scenario can be avoided with the help of facelift before and after photos. Most surgeons use these pictures to ensure that the patient forms realistic expectations from the facelift procedure in order to achieve satisfactory results.

Photos Online

A plastic surgeon may also provide facelift before and after photographs on the practice website. This can allow free access to the photos to anyone who needs to learn more about facelift surgery. A potential patient who may first like to know more about the surgery before considering a personal visit to the surgeon’s office for a consultation can simply review before and after pictures from the comfort of their home or office.
