Do all doctors take preoperative rhinoplasty photos and why? Is this just a marketing tool for them or is there some other benefit?
Preoperative photos are an essential part of the rhinoplasty evaluation, surgical planning and medical record. They help the surgeon analyze the existing problems, confirm them with the patient and plan the operative steps for correction. Postoperatively they help confirm the changes made. evaluate the results and confirm the existence of preoperative asymmetries or problems that were not included in the operative plan should any question about their cause arise.
