Abstract

Consistent photographic technique pre and postoperatively is essential in plastic surgery. Poor and nonuniform technique can give misleading results or some tricks can be used on purpose to improve results. For a plastic surgeon it is important to know and recognize these tricks to objectively evaluate photographs. The most important factors for uniform photographic technique are: light, lens, distance, background, and patient's position. In the future 3D cameras connected to a personal computer will give more possibilities to objectively quantify results in plastic surgery.
