Patient Photographic Authorization & Release
In the course of consultation and discussions with certified medical professionals, I may have been shown, or may be shown or provided certain brochures, pictures of actual patients or pictures on an electronic computer imaging system. I do understand that those pictures and alteration of these pictures seen are solely for the purpose of illustration, discussion and to provide improved communication with medical professionals. I do understand that the outcome of any type of surgical procedure is directly related to my individual characteristics and health. I further understand and acknowledge that because of the obvious significant differences in how living tissue reacts to surgery, there may be no relationship between the electronic images created, and my actual final surgical result. Use of the computer imaging system offers an opportunity for me to discuss my desires and to allow improved communication with the medical staff. I consent to the taking of photographs by Dr. Whetstone or his designee of me or parts of my body in connection with the plastic surgery procedure(s) to be performed by Dr. Whetstone.
