Please take photos of your thighs standing with your legs slightly apart , showing front, side, and back views. If you feel you have a lot of skin excess, please take a photo from the front with you pulling on your thigh skin to demonstrate skin laxity.
Prior to your pre screening call and consultation, if you wish to send in any wish photos, you may do so.
When trying to find wish pictures, please realize many of the photos you find on social media have been manipulated: lighting, posing, and editing is very common, and even slight alterations can create a dramatic overall impact which may not be achievable with surgery.
When looking for wish pictures, plastic surgery before/after galleries is the best place to look. Other reputable sites such as Realself.com may also be useful. Please try to find photos of people that look like you in the before photo, to get an idea of what transformation they went through and what you can expect.
When looking for breast wish pics, please understand a breast augmentation will always look different than a breast lift. If you think you may need a breast lift, please make sure that your wish pics do not include breast augmentation photos. Also realize standardized views of naked surgical pictures are ideal. Pictures of people posing, wearing any bra or bikini will distort the true body shape and is not representative of what may be achievable.
These types of photos often show unrealistic bodies in various non-standard poses. Please understand that these people are not a good ‘wish pic’ as we know nothing about their pre-existing anatomy, what procedures they had, if any, and how their images have been modified. Please avoid using social media influencers as your wish pics, and instead find inspiring before/after photos on reputable plastic surgery before/after galleries.
