Are Cosmetic Surgery images Real?
Well without a doubt Some are questionable.
Let’s face it when it comes to cosmetic surgery advertising/marketing a lot of the images are too good to be true.
Indeed, frankly, there is little to choose between one clinic and another.
They all claim to have the best surgeons and the best equipment and are often endorsed by a string of celebrities. Then we have another layer which is the market we work in (cosmetic surgery abroad).
Here there are virtually no “celeb” endorsements, because “they” the “celeb” will always opt for Harley Street or similar. They could not be seen to be considering overseas surgery. Too snobbish for that. That is despite the UK being one of the few countries in Europe where the industry is unregulated. Theoretically, my local Hairdresser could operate on you.
Unfortunately Here in our market sector (abroad), there are very few actual images of patients (before and after).
Instead, there are lots of what are known as stock images- bought off the shelf.
These can depict or give the mistaken impression of either a typical patient or what appears a member of the nursing staff.
Why are there so few images in the media of actual patients who went abroad for cosmetic surgery?
Answer: by nature, those who opted to go abroad wish to remain anonymous. Specifically seeking discretion and privacy.
Bluntly, they do not specifically wish to be seen in any media outlets. To do so would bring their surgery to the attention of friends and relatives. The exact opposite of what they had hoped to avoid.
Secondly, generally, the media are not interested in showing before and after images of anyone who didn’t have their cosmetic surgery in the UK. The UK media would only be interested if cosmetic surgery abroad went wrong. Then they would be crawling over it.
Media bias when it comes to Cosmetic Surgery performed in the U.K.
IN FACT- The only times UK media shows an interest in cosmetic surgery performed outside of the UK is- if “allegedly” the procedure had gone wrong!
Moreover, they generally use a journalist to report the unfortunate outcome, who has the understanding of cosmetic surgery procedures, that of a five-year-old. The only brief is to use the word “botch” as much as possible.
Conveniently ignoring the facts such as the patients discharged themselves a day earlier to save costs of the hotel. Followed zero post-op instructions.
I could write a book on the sheer arrogant and child-like ignorant attitudes of some of our UK enquirers.
We are somewhat different, in as much as -we are happy to show images of either Libby or those who chose to allow us to publish theirs.
Uniquely we possess solely, and only, actual genuine patient photos.
Moreover, we go one step further by showing images of the actual owner of our companies before and after cosmetic surgery.
Below we have two real images and not a youngster- it’s 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.
Working on the question- Are cosmetic surgery images real?
Why not be honest and show real images.?
We don’t use or agree with using any standard easy-to-purchase ready-made stock images.
These are to put it politely misleadingly.
Always showing flawless young models with a Hollywood smile to match!
In our opinion, these types of images insult the intelligence of many of our serious enquirers. They by definition in seeking cosmetic surgery– need a bit of help with their appearance.
We as a strict policy only use genuine real patient images.
Some are 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.
Basically, We believe in showing “real images” of ”real people”
Ours in fact was never designed for marketing. Without any kind of enhancement such as makeovers or airbrushing etc.
Most of our images are either taken from clinical archives or snapshot photos sent impromptu by our ex-patients as a courtesy.
They freely wished to contribute these images in showing us how they are progressing/healing after returning home.
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 still 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 cosmetic surgery is not for you.
A true image of a company is honesty by showing genuine images of its product/s and or pictures in the workplace and the manufacturing of the actual product.
This reflects the genuine soul of the company.
Our Guaranteed commitment.
We absolutely can say we always use only genuine “warts and all” images.
In fact, we would prefer no images at all instead of 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.
Miracle lunchtime surgeries.
Talk about being conned. Looking back its amazing to recall the number of media “hyped up ” so-called miracle procedures which came and went.
Sadly sold rather like snake oil pedlars.
I am pleased to say our clinic rather sensibly avoided all this hyped-up stuff. As for me, I am renowned for professionalism, integrity, candid advice and recommendations.Leave a reply
