facelift surgery before and after photos

Facelift surgery is one of the most important procedures in cosmetic surgery because the face is the most prominent and impactful part of the body from an aesthetic perspective. An experienced plastic surgeon will make use of facelift before and after photographs during the initial consultation process to explain various aspects of the procedure more clearly.

Cosmetic Surgery Associates, operating out of Bethesda, MD and McLean, VA provides facelift procedures to patients in Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and surrounding areas. Led by board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Franklin Richards and Dr. Dean Jabs, the practice provides state-of-the-art surgical procedures in a safe and friendly environment.

What are Facelift Before and After Pictures?

Before and after pictures in case of facelift cosmetic surgery refer to a pair or group of images belonging to a previous patient who received the same procedure successfully. The images include pictures taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a time when the swelling and bruising have fully resolved and the full effects of the procedure are visible.

The images are taken with the consent of the patient and shown discreetly to new patients. The goal of the plastic surgeon is to educate new patients about various aspects of facelifts, using before and after pictures as a visual aid. Dr. Jabs and Dr. Richards use these photos during the initial consultation for a facelift with their patients in Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and other areas.


When a new patient walks into a surgeon’s office for a facelift consultation, they may only have a vague idea of what the procedure can or cannot do for them. During the initial consultation, the surgeon can make use of facelift before and after photos to show the potential effectiveness of the procedure. Some patients may only need a full facelift surgery, while some others may also need an upper face procedure such as a brow lift or eyelid lift.

In some cases, only a mini facelift surgery may suffice. In all such cases, it can be difficult for a new patient to choose the most appropriate treatment approach. This is where the surgeon can make use of facelift before and after images to educate patients about various options and help them make the most effective choices.

Staying Realistic

In any cosmetic surgery procedure, patients with clear aesthetic goals, a positive frame of mind, and realistic expectations will usually gain the highest satisfaction levels. Therefore, an experienced surgeon will try to ensure that the patient forms only accurate and realistic expectations about the facelift surgery. Before and after photos can play a vital role in this regard.

The scope for any confusion or misunderstanding becomes eliminated when the doctor shows these pictures to a patient. The patient will know clearly what to expect and what not to expect from a facelift, and make an informed decision. The surgeon may also choose to provide these pictures on their practice website for free access to anyone who may be interested in the procedure.
