How to Set Up A Plastic Surgery Medical
onsistent, high quality before and after photos are absolutely essential for a successful plastic surgery practice. Medical photography is the most detailed form of documentation and also serves as a way to increase client satisfaction and loyalty. Additionally, high quality medical photography can be used to educate the public as well as attract new patients through marketing and social media. Plastic surgery practices must have impressive before and after galleries on their websites to entice new clientele. Gone are the days of a single photo room, complete with synchronized flashes and a pre-programmed DSLR. The latest iPhones and iPads have 12 megapixel cameras, which take excellent high-resolution photos consistently. Before smart phones, before and after photos would not always happen because there was only one medical photography room, and if it was occupied, time was wasted waiting. With RxPhoto in conjunction with iPhones or iPads, every clinic room can become a plastic surgery medical photography room. Every patient should, and can, have medical photography in their chart, complete with before and afters, without fail.
