HOW TO TAKE AND SEND PHOTOS

A uniform background is helpful with even lighting to ensure consistency. For most photos your face should not be in the photo for your privacy (unless we are discussing something with your facial features). It is best if you have someone take the photos for you and it is very important that the camera be leveled with the body part being photographed. The submission of photos and instructions are for the use of informational purposes only. It is not intended for diagnosis or treatment of any health condition, nor is it a substitute for in-office, professional medical advice. The physician/patient relationship has not been established; therefore the expectation of HIPPA requirements are not applicable.

Facial / Rhinoplasty Instructions

Please take photos in front of a plain background. For example, use a plain-colored wall or plain-colored sheet (white or blue is preferable) hung on a wall. Photos should be taken from top/crown of head to just below the neck with collar bones visible. Facial features should be relaxed. No smiling or frowning, just a relaxed natural position. Keep jawline in a relaxed natural position; do not try to push jaw out or “pose” as this will only obscure your natural jawline. Be as relaxed as possible for the best photo outcome. Keep the camera angle straight forward. Do not angle down or up, as this will also create an unnatural position/view of the facial features.

A total of 6 images/views are needed: 1 front shot, 2 quarter turn shots, 2 side views and 1 view with head tilted slightly downward of the facial features.

Breast Instructions

Please take photos in front of a plain background. For example, use a plain-colored wall or plain-colored sheet (white or blue is preferable) hung on a wall. Photos should be taken from just below the neck with shoulders visible to just above the belly button. Hands and arms should not be raised as this lifts the breasts to an unnatural position. Hands can rest on your hips with elbows bent naturally to the sides or rest naturally straight back. Be as relaxed as possible for the best photo outcome. Keep the camera angle straight forward. Do not angle down or up, as this will also create an unnatural position/view of the breasts. You will need to take your photos without any garments on; for example, no bras or shirts.

A total of 5 images/views are needed: 1 front view shot, 2 quarter turn shots and 2 side views of the breasts.

Body / Thigh / Back Procedures Instructions

Please take photos in front of a plain background. For example, use a plain-colored wall or plain-colored sheet (white or blue is preferable) hung on a wall. Photos should be taken from just below your chin to your feet. The whole torso area should be visible with no undergarments obscuring the area to be examined. Hands and arms should not be raised as this lifts the abdomen to an unnatural position. Do not “suck in” the abdomen as this also creates an unnatural position. Inhale and exhale out to completely relax your abdomen. Hands can rest on your hips with elbows bent naturally to the sides. Be as relaxed as possible for the best photo outcome. Keep the camera angle straight forward. Do not angle down or up, as this will also create an unnatural position/view of the abdomen area. You will need to take your photos without any garments on; for example, no shirts covering the abdomen area.

A total of 8 images/views are needed: 1 front view shot, 2 quarter front turn shots, 2 side views, 2 quarter back turn shots, and 1 full back shot.

Body Photos: Body photos must reflect your muscles in their relaxed state.

Abdominal Photos: Abdominal photos should show area from the mid-breast to pubic bone. Please wear underwear. Please expose any low or existing scars (i.e.; C-section incision).

Back Photos: Back photos should show area from the top of the shoulders to the tailbone.

Hip and Buttock Photos: Should show area from waist to knee. Wear thong (or) underwear that does not cause indentations or remove them with a light or white background. A total of 4 images needed: front, back and both sides of lower torso.

Upper Thigh Photos: Should show area from mid-hip to just below knees. If possible wear underwear that does not cause indentations or remove them.

Buttock Augmentation Procedures Instructions

Please take photos in front of a plain background. For example, use a plain-colored wall or plain-colored sheet (whiter blue is preferable) hung on a wall. Photos should be taken from just below your chin to your feet. The whole torso area should be visible with no undergarments obscuring the area to be examined. Hands and arms should not be raised as this lifts the abdomen to an unnatural position. Do not “suck in” the abdomen as this also creates an unnatural position. Inhale and exhale out to completely relax your abdomen. Hands can rest on your hips with elbows bent naturally to the sides. Be as relaxed as possible for the best photo outcome. 

Keep the camera angle straight forward. Do not angle down or up, as this will also create an unnatural position/view of the abdomen area. You will need to take your photos without any garments on; for example, no shirts covering the abdomen area. 

A total of 9 images/views are needed: 1 front view shot, 2 quarter front turn shots, 2 side views, 2 quarter back turn shots, 1 full back shot, and 1 back bent forward shot.

Frequently Asked Questions

We request photos from prospective new patients to help our providers gain greater insight into the aesthetic concerns that you have. Our doctors spend a great deal of time with each patient and we want to maximize the time spent by being better prepared to help you. 

We protect all correspondence that is sent to us. The photos are shared with the provider who will see you during your consultation and held in the strictest confidence. 

No problem. Sending photos is not a requirement of your consultation with our providers. The photos will help us get to know you and your concerns better prior to your arrival; however, the decision to send photos is yours alone.
