Thank you for your reply. Why not join us to expand your concerns. Tweets, are so limited in scope, yet can be used to spread the core issues directing to the discussion about Before After Photographs.
Privacy issues were easy for still photos. Obscuring the head on the videos was more or a challenge. We messed out the powerful tool of facial expressions. I remember the fantastic and powerful smiles and facial emotions that privacy issues did not permit me to share. T here was also a great performance of a belly dancer after her surgery. She sent me the video, but i could not share it. What a superb demonstration of recovery. The power of the surgical sculpture enabling the emotional comfort of a patient's art form of dance, brings back fond memories. While not the performance video, Tummy Tuck Belly Dancer
