These are general guidelines to follow when choosing a photo to submit for your Plastic Surgery Visualisation. You do not have to follow these exactly, but the more you do, the more you will get out of the service. Please don't stress if your photo isn't perfect! If you have any questions please contact us. We would love to hear from you!
1. No Selfies or Mirror Selfies
It’s best if you don't send us photos taken with a phone selfie camera (this includes mirror selfies). Selfie cameras distort our faces. Therefore, they don't accurately represent what we look like in reality. Ideally, have someone else take your photo at eye level.
2. Color Photos Only
Please only send us clear, colour photos. Please don't send us black and white, blurry or pixilated photos.
3. Use a High Quality Camera
If you have access to one, please have your photo taken using a high quality camera. The quality of your photo will directly impact the quality of your final photos. Therefore, it's in your interest to use the best quality camera you can get your hands on!
4. Keep Your Hair and Hands off Your Face
Please keep your hair and hands off and away from your face. This will make it much easier for us to edit your photo.
5. Avoid High, Low or Unusual Angles
Please avoid high, low or unusual angles, as they distort the way our faces appear in photos. Instead, please try to take your photo at eye level.
6. Remove Glasses and Facial Piercings
Please remove glasses and facial piercings. This will make it much easier for us to edit your photo.
7. You're Welcome to Wear Makeup!
You are welcome to wear makeup. However, please avoid extremely heavy makeup. Not only is it more difficult for us to edit your photo if you're wearing extreme amounts of makeup, but also, it's difficult to determine what you look like naturally. In turn, this makes it more challenging for us to determine which procedures could enhance your beauty the greatest.
If possible, please avoid wearing false eyelashes. They make it difficult for us to edit your eye and brow area. If you have semi permanent lash extensions that can't be removed for a photo, then don't worry! Whilst it's ideal to have fake lashes removed, we can work around them if needs be!
8. Take Your Photo in a Balanced Light Setting
Please take your photo in a balanced light setting.
What does this mean? Do not take a picture in very bright, over exposed sunlight or somewhere dark, and please keep shadows off your face. This is because if a photo is over or under lit it loses digital information, making it more difficult for us to edit.
