Cosmetic surgery images before and after-are they real?
Lets face it-when it comes to advertising/marketing there is little to choose between one clinic and another. They all have the best surgeons, best equipment and often endorsed by a string of celebrities.
Then we have another layer which is the market we work in (cosmetic surgery abroad) where there is virtually no “celeb” endorsement as “they” the “celeb’s” will always opt for Harley Street or similar.
Here in our market sector there are few images of actual patients but lots of what are known as stock images- bought off the shelf. These can depict or give the impression of either a typical patient, or member of nursing staff.
We are somewhat different in as much as we possess solely actual genuine patient photos. Moreover we go one step further by showing images of the actual owner of the companies before and after cosmetic surgery.
Below we have two real images and not a youngster its Libby.
Are Cosmetics surgery images real.
The reality is that nowadays enhanced images appear in many marketing adverts.
A perfect “blemish” free team all young (no oldies) who work in an atmosphere of constant smiles, success, and achievements.
In our view the reality is different. We know there are some failures, occasionally working with a hangover, looking slightly unkempt, and passing round a bag of crisps.
We don’t use or agree with using any standard easy to purchase ready made stock images. Somewhat misleadingly showing flawless young models with a Hollywood smile to match!
In our opinion these types of images insult the intelligence of our typical enquirer who by definition of seeking cosmetic surgery– needs a bit of help-with their appearance.
We only use/have genuine real patient images.
Some taken only days after surgery showing exactly how it is-bruising, scars, etc. Clinical archives, no make-overs-no “stock” images, enhancements, or bias towards any age group.
We believe in showing “real images” of” real people”
Which in fact were never designed for marketing and are without any kind of enhancements, such as make-overs or airbrushing etc. Most of our images are either taken from clinical archives or snapshot photo’s sent impromptu by our ex patients as a courtesy, in showing us how they are progressing/healing after returning home.
Amazingly we often find ourselves criticised for the poor quality and standards of our images when compared to others cosmetic surgery organisations.
Obviously expensive makeovers
Combined with the use of well-known personalities in cosmetic surgery adverts is seen by many as superior to our untouched images. Rather sad really, but that’s the age we live in. Critics say ours look amateurish. Well yes… actually they are and we are proud of it.!
Ours often show patients 3 days post op with bandages and bruising –sorry but that’s how in reality it is. If you can’t face up to “how it is” 3 days post op then perhaps you shouldn’t be considering cosmetic surgery.
A true image of a company is showing genuine images of its product/s and or pictures of the workplace and the manufacturing of the actual product.
This reflects the genuine soul of the company.
We are so committed to using only genuine “warts and all” images that any artificial ones are banned from our site. In fact we would prefer no images at all on our site to unreal ones.
Having gained a vast amount of first hand knowledge over the years I am more than happy to pass on the benefits of my experiences. Looking back its amazing to recall the number of media “hyped up ” so- called miracle procedures which came and went.
Sadly, sold rather like by- gone -snake oil pedlars. I am pleased to say our clinic rather sensibly avoided all this hyped up stuff. As for me, I am renown for professionalism, integrity, candid advice and recommendations.
