Rhytidectomy, commonly known as facelift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to tighten and lift sagging facial skin and muscles and restore a more youthful facial appearance. During the initial consultation, the facelift surgeon will educate the patient about all aspects of the procedure to help them make the right decision.

Many surgeons also prefer to use the first consultation as an opportunity to show facelift before and after photographs to the patient. This will help the patient to understand the potential effectiveness of the surgery. Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones provides facelift to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding locations.


What are Facelift Before and After Pictures?

Before and after pictures in case of facelift plastic surgery refer to a pair or group of images pertaining to a previous patient who has undergone the same procedure with successful results. The pictures include images taken prior to the procedure and after the procedure at a stage when the post-op swelling and bruising has subsided and full effects of facelift have been established.

The surgeon will take care to ensure that the pictures are obtained with the express consent of the patient, and presented before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity may be kept undisclosed as per a standard norm. The sole purpose behind this exercise is to use the pictures as a visual tool to explain to new patients about what facelift surgery can or cannot do for them.



Your face is aesthetically the most prominent part of the body. Patients are particularly sensitive about any procedure related to the face. To reassure a new patient and to help them know whether facelift will meet their personal cosmetic goals and needs or not, the surgeon can use before and after photographs effectively.

Some patients may only need a limited procedure such as a mini facelift, while some others may need a full facelift along with neck lift or upper face procedures. In each case, the patient can make the best choices when they have access to facelift before and after photos.


Being Realistic

A fantastic candidate for facelift surgery would ideally have a positive frame of mind, clear aesthetic priorities, and realistic expectations. During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will encourage the patient to review as many facelift before and after photos as possible. This will help the patient to know what to expect and what not to expect from the results of facelift.

With before and after photos, the risk of any misunderstanding or disappointment occurring for the patient will be reduced. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jones receives patients from Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and nearby areas for facelift.


Images Online

The plastic surgeon has the option to present facelift before and after photos on their practice website. If the surgeon is active on social media, they may also choose to share the photos over social platforms such as Facebook, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest. This will allow more people to learn about the potential benefits of facelift surgery.

The digital revolution has already passed. It is part of our life now. People spend a certain amount of time staring at digital screens throughout the day. The Internet is a basic part of so many professional lives and this has affected the plastic surgery industry in a profound way. Now doctors can present their work for all to see so people have less anxiety when coming into the office and they are more informed.

This is outstanding for the clinic, surgeon, and the patient when contemplating facelift surgery.
