Recommendations

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Photo should include entire area from the neck to the waist next to the belly button.
  • Hair should be tied back and jewelry (earrings, necklaces, piercings) removed beforehand.
  • 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.
  • Please only send three pictures: front, left side, right side.

Body Surgery Photos

  • 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 knees. The whole torso area should be visible with no undergarments obscuring the areas.
  • Hands and arms should not be raised above your head 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.
  • Keep arms up and out to the sides for front and back views.
  • 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, no bras, or underwear. If you like, please use a small towel to cover your front genital area, but please do not use underwear.
  • Only one frontal image is needed for all body surgery. If you are considering a buttock augmentation procedure, please send a front and back view.

Hair Transplant Photos

  • 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 jaw line in a relaxed natural position; do not try to push jaw out or “pose” as this will only obscure your natural jaw line. 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 4 images/views are needed: 1 front shot, 2 side views and 1 view with head tilted slightly downward of the facial features.
