Breast reduction cosmetic surgery procedure is designed to make oversized breasts more proportionate to the rest of the body by reducing excess fat tissue and skin. A new patient should have proper information and awareness about all aspects of breast reduction before she makes a final decision on it. A committed breast surgeon will ensure that the patient is adequately educated during the pre-operative consultation.

Dr. Kaufman will discuss breast reduction procedure in detail with the patient during an initial consultation, and will also ensure that the patient gets access to breast reduction before and after photographs. He provides breast reduction plastic surgery to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding communities.
What are Breast Reduction Before and After Pictures?
Before and after pictures in case of breast reduction cosmetic surgery refer to a set of images pertaining to a previous patient who has undergone the same surgery with successful results. The set includes images taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a time when post-operative bruising and swelling has been eliminated. This could sometimes mean that the “after” photos are taken about one year following the breast reduction surgery.
The plastic surgeon will ensure that these photographs are acquired with the due consent of the patient, and are show to new patients in an appropriate manner. The sole purpose behind this exercise is to use before and after pictures as a visual aid to educate new patients about the potential aesthetic benefits of breast reduction surgery.
With the advent of digital technology and website innovation long drawn out conversations can be avoided. Now potential patients can make the most accurate and informed decision about this surgery ever. They know exactly what they are getting into and this reduces the anxiety on their part and some stress from the surgeon and the team because they know the patient knows what they signed up for. They say a picture is worth a thousand words but a digital picture may be worth two thousand words.
Many women are likely to have only very limited or inaccurate information about breast reduction procedure when they may consider it for the first time. They may have read a few online reviews or heard about it from a friend. When the woman visits the surgeon’s office for a consultation, it is the first duty of the surgeon to explain her about all aspects of the surgery and describe what it can or cannot do for her.
Breast reduction plastic surgery before and after photos can play a significant role in this regard. After reviewing the photos, the patient will feel more confident about going ahead with the procedure or changing her mind about it. The confusion will be largely removed, and she will be in a position to make a well-informed choice.
After reviewing breast reduction before and after photos, it becomes easier for the patient to form realistic expectations. It will minimize the risk of any misunderstanding or disappointment occurring later when it may be too late already to change anything. Patients with realistic hopes will typically achieve greater satisfaction levels from the surgery.
