How to Review Before and After Photos of Breast Augmentation Surgeries

There are several different things to consider when you start searching for the best surgeon for your breast enlargement surgery and before and after photos are one of them.

Looking through a surgeon’s before and after gallery is one of the best ways to decide whether they’ll be able to provide you with the results you’re hoping for.

It’s one thing to go through one of these galleries but knowing what to look for is what will help you make a final decision about a potential surgeon (

Evaluating a Surgeon’s Before and After Photos

Once you’ve checked your surgeon’s qualifications and read through a few online reviews, you can start looking at photos of their past surgeries. Your surgeon should always be a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and specialise in breast surgery before you consider scheduling a consultation with them.

Here are a few tips that will show you exactly what to look for.

Symmetry. This is particularly important when it comes to breast augmentation photos. Symmetry is very important because it’s a clear sign of a competent surgeon.

Natural Results. A surgeon should always aim to create the most natural-looking results possible so make sure that this is the case when you review their before and after gallery. The key to getting breast augmentation results to look natural is to create breasts that complement the patient’s body type and shape. If overly large implants have been placed on a woman with a tiny frame, this could be a sign that your surgeon doesn’t have the patient’s best interests at heart.

Consistency. A surgeon who creates consistent results is someone who knows what they are doing. Experienced surgeons tend to develop their own style over time so decide if you can tell whether every boob job was performed by the same surgeon to determine their skill level.

Scar placement. Since you want to know that your surgeon will do everything possible to minimise scarring, pay attention to scar placement in all of the photos. If there is little to no scarring in each of the photos, that’s one more reason to consider a particular surgeon.

Photo quantity. A surgeon that can only show you photos from a handful of surgeries should not be considered. If you really want to be sure about your surgeon’s skills, you need to be able to look through at least a dozen photos of past breast surgeries. A surgeon that doesn’t have enough photos probably doesn’t specialise in that procedure or perform it very often, which is not something you want to pay for.

Before and after photos may seem insignificant but they can actually tell you a lot about a surgeon. Reputable surgeons already have before and after galleries on their websites. If they don’t, they will always provide you with photos to review during your consultation. If this is not the case, it’s time to continue your search.
