We often receive requests for before and afters of Dr. Somia's patients. We realise this is an important aspect of any decision making process. However, our practice maintains a strict privacy policy which includes not posting before and after images online (including social media) to preserve the privacy of our patients. Recently, there have been a number of news stories regarding breaches of patient privacy from online photos and we would like to protect our patients from this type of exposure.   

Dr. Somia does however have many before and after photographs he would be happy to show you during a consultation to aid you in the decision making process.
