At Shapiro Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Skin Klinic, we are proud to offer an extensive before and after photo gallery for potential patients to view that are considering our practice for their aesthetic needs. With a gallery consisting of over 600 satisfied surgical patients and their results, we are happy to say that every single one of these photos were taken of our actual patients, as they really look after their procedure. What better way to get a true concept of a surgeons surgical results than seeing them for yourself? Nothing demonstrates the quality and capabilities of a surgeon quite like photographs of their work. We invite you to view our online gallery, full of hundreds of images that you can trust.

Before and After Images — Why They Are So Important.

Before and after images are one of the most powerful and effective tools available that reveal a plastic surgeon’s skill, experience and artistry. These photos allow you to make an informed decision when selecting your cosmetic surgeon as you will want to choose a doctor that produces consistently beautiful surgical results. Be leery of surgeons who do not share before and after photos on their website of the procedures you are interested in, as they should want to showcase their best work.

Before and after photos are also a powerful tool as they allow potential patients the opportunity to witness the results of modern day plastic surgery and what is possible in the hands of a talented and seasoned surgeon. Dr. Shapiro has over 28 years of experience and was recruited to be the Director of Aesthetic Surgical Training for the world famous Mayo Clinic Rochester Plastic Surgery Residency Program. These photographs help patients make informed decisions and allow a doctor to educate you about the procedure and anticipated results.

Honest images tell the truth. As you know, with the digital tools available in today’s day and age, it takes only seconds to alter an image to make it more attractive.

We pride ourselves on not engaging in photo re-touching or digital enhancement of any kind to improve the look of our before and after images which is unfortunately common practice amongst many surgeons. We believe that you deserve truth and transparency. Our images are honest, revealing the actual results of our procedures as they appear in reality.

What To Look For In A “Before and After” Photo Gallery

While looking through a plastic surgeons photo gallery please use these tips for accurate assessment of their surgical skills and patient results:

  • Images should allow you to see the patients face, breasts, or body from multiple angles, ensuring results are not acceptable from just one point of view.

  • Ensure you are actually seeing that surgeon’s work – not stock photos or stolen images pulled off the internet. You can do a reverse image search to search for images by right clicking on a photo and selecting “search Google for image” to verify authenticity.

  • Look for scars. Whenever possible, an experienced cosmetic surgeon will place incisions in the natural folds of the skin or where they can be easily concealed by clothing.


  • Make sure all patients don’t have the same look in the “after” images. This suggests that the surgeon is good at achieving only a certain look. You want a balanced outcome and a custom procedure, not a “one-size-fits-all” approach to cosmetic surgery. You must find a surgeon that will adjust the surgical plan and technique to create a result that best enhances a patient’s unique anatomy.


  • Patients body positioning should be as close as possible in their after photo as it was in their before photo.


  • In facelift photos, look for changes in facial expression. A large smile in an “after” photo can give a skewed impression of the actual success of the procedure, as the facial muscles will be temporarily lifting some of the patient’s skin and tissue.

  • For the best read on facelift surgical scars, the patients ears should never be hidden by hair or jewelry, the incisions should be well concealed within the patient’s tragus and hairline.

  • In breast photos, if the patients arms are hanging down in the before photo but pulled back in the after photo, this will give the appearance of more perky breasts and a more dramatic result. Patients arms should always be hanging naturally at the side of their body.


  • Don’t fall for slick marketing tactics, you deserve the best results possible. This should be your main objective, ensure your surgeon has an abundance of before and after photographs to review.
