DocShop.com Tip: Surgeons who are confident the potential patient will be pleased with the quality of their past work will likely willingly offer to allow patients to view before and after breast implant photos. The before and after breast implant photos may include before photos from several different angles and after photos from the same angle. This gives the potential patient the ability to gauge the outcome of the previous surgeries easily. It also allows the patient to see the type, length and location of scars which result from the surgeon's work. This is important as some surgeons may produce more appealing results with minimal scarring, while the results of other surgeons may be less physically appealing and may have more extensive scarring. In viewing before and after breast implant photos, the patient should ask so see patients who had a similar procedure to get the best idea of the types of results that can be expected. This is important because the scarring for some types of procedures may be different than for other types.
