Abstract

OBJECTIVES: To provide the practicing surgeon with data to make an informed economic decision regarding conversion from analog to digital photography. METHODS: A cost analysis of photography based on 35-mm vs digital platforms (low-, medium-, and high-cost hardware). RESULTS: Break-even thresholds for the investment in a digital platform of low, medium, and high costs were 3674, 15,789, and 34,000 images, respectively. CONCLUSION: Given the current excellent image quality and ongoing refinements in digital photography, a digital photography platform may be cost-effective for a busy facial plastic surgery practice.
