Despite her flourishing marketing career with industry leaders — Hasbro and Microsoft — Elena couldn’t leave her passion for the health and medical field behind.

Ask The Doctor

Although there is no substitute for a face-to-face consultation, we can often help determine whether you are a suitable candidate for a specific plastic surgery procedure by viewing your photos, and, in many situations, will be able to provide a preliminary estimate. Please note these are estimates only and may change after the provider evaluates you in person.

It is important that you send us images of sufficient quality so that we can adequately assess your cosmetic concerns.

General Photo Taking Guidelines

  • Have another person take your photos or use a camera timer. We do not accept selfies (handheld or on a selfie stick) as they are taken from too close of a distance that often distorts proportions.
  • Use a solid color background without any objects (a plain wall works great).
  • For face/neck, make sure eyeglasses are off and hair is pulled away from the face as much as possible.
  • Orient the camera vertically so that the framed picture is a vertical rectangle (higher up/down than side/side) instead of a horizontal rectangle.
  • Take photos facing the camera straight-on, at 45-degrees (3/4 view), 90-degrees (side-view), and for liposuction with your back facing the camera.
  • For Rhinoplasty, the bottom of the nose (view of the nostrils) is an important angle.
  • (Optional) For breast augmentation, lift, or reduction, please send us your under breast measurement.
  • (Optional) For liposuction or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), please send us a measurement of your waist and hips.

Detailed instructions specifically for face/neck photos can be found on our website HERE.
