The Photos

We photos taken by your friend or partner should include a: 

  • Front view
  • Side on view both sides
  • 45-degree angle both sides if possible. 

These should be taken at a distance of approximately 1.5-2 metres.

Background and Lighting

  • Photos should be taken against a plain wall, or uncluttered background with as much light as possible (use as many open windows and artificial lighting as you can).
  • Photos taken on a smart phone or modern camera will usually be okay.
  • Please do not use portrait mode. Please make sure the entire photo is in focus.

Be sure not to compress or edit your images. This can often cause photos to blur.

  • Stand up right with feet shoulder-width apart and your arms and hands resting naturally by your side.
  • Be natural. Do not wear a bra or alter your posture or appearance.

Tummy Photos

  • It is best to take photos in an up-right position with your underwear or bathers pulled down to your pubic bone. This is so the surgeon can clearly view your area of concern
  • Keep your posture natural, really relax and let your belly hang out.
  • Please take photos 2 metres away of the front, left side, right side, and ideally a photo standing at a 45-degree angle on each side.
