More Than a Plastic Surgery Simulator
If you have been considering cosmetic surgery, but have uncertainty whether or not you’ll like the results, there is a remarkable 3-D imaging system called ‘Crisalix’ that we are using in our office. Crisalix VR offers more comprehensive 3-dimensional views and angles, giving you more confidence when choosing an option that’s right for you.
WHAT ARE THEY AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
The Crisalix VR (Virtual Reality) Goggles are more than just a plastic surgery simulator. Developed by a Swiss-based tech company, Crisalix, they allow you to see how you would look after the procedure, from multiple angles, with different breast implant sizes, shapes and types. This technology allows you to “try on” your new breasts before you decide.
“Patients love it! Deciding what style and size of implant best achieves the patient’s personal desires is difficult. Being able to visualize the anticipated result from surgery is extremely helpful, assuring, and comforting. Being able to “see” the new look is fun and exciting!” – Dr. Broadway
The web-based system uses 2-D photographs of you that are taken during your consultation to create a 3-D simulation. Your photos are uploaded to the Crisalix program and we put the sizes you want to look at in the program. The simulations are rendered while you are still in the office and you will see a 3-D simulation of what you will look like after surgery.
A feature of the software is that you can see several sizes side by side for comparison and see the images with different blouses or bathing suit tops. If you have a size difference between your breasts, the program can measure the difference in volume and help to confirm that using two different size implants will give you the look you want.
After your consultation, you will have the opportunity to view the images at homewhich gives you the chance to look again and ensure you are making the decision that is right for you and the surgery will provide you with the look you desire.
