When a new patient is considering facelift surgery, they may only have a vague idea of how the procedure can help them meet their personal aesthetic goals. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend a full facelift, while a few patients may only need a mini facelift as a maintenance procedure.
Sometimes the best approach may be to combine facelift with neck lift or other facial procedures to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals. In all such situations, patient may find it difficult to make the right choices. This is where the surgeon will make use of facelift surgery before and after photos to explain various aspects of the procedure and help the patient make the best decisions.

Patients with realistic expectations will usually achieve the highest satisfaction levels from a facelift surgery. Therefore, the surgeon will use the facelift before and after photos to show to the patient what kind of results can be expected in the end. This minimizes the chances of any disappointment occurring for the patient at the time of final results.
