AFC Surgical Photo Database

Search Database

The Aesthetic Flat Closure (AFC) Surgical Photo Database is a collection of surgical before and after photos filterable by patient body habitus characteristics and surgical/medical parameters. All photos are submitted by surgeons and approved by the Database management team.

The Database serves several critical functions in improving the standard of patient care in this setting:

  • facilitate clear communication between patient and provider
  • help to align expectations
  • allow patients facing surgery to visualize what they might look like post-operatively
  • provide data for future AFC research and surgical training
