DocShop.com Tip: Patients should ask for references from past patients and should ask to see before-and-after photos from patients who underwent a similar cosmetic surgery. This will help the patient to accurately view the types of results the surgeon is capable of producing and will also give the patient a good indication of the extent of the scarring which results from the surgeon's skill and technique. The before-and-after photos of a previous cosmetic surgery can also be used by the patient to provide an accurate description of the desired results. Through the use of photos, it is much more likely the patient and surgeon will be in agreement regarding the desired results.
