Plastic Surgery Digital Simulation with Crisalix 3D Technology
If you wonder what you would look like with bigger breasts, digital imaging technology allows you to preview those changes before committing to surgery. Dr. Ashkan Ghavami is pleased to offer the Crisalix 3D system, which takes photos or scans the area of your body to be treated, and then digitally manipulates the images to give you an idea of the results. Visualizing these changes can aid in the decision-making process and help you feel confident about your choices.
Crisalix is best used for primary breast augmentation, but can be used to preview the results of the following:
- Breast lift
- Breast implant revision
- Breast reconstruction
- Fat transfer to the breasts
- Eyebrow lift
- Eyelid lift
- Cheek augmentation
- Chin augmentation
- Tummy tuck
- Buttock augmentation
How Does the Digital Simulation Work?
First, the Crisalix technology scans the area to be treated. Then, the software digitally manipulates the images based on the planned surgery. This process gives patients a glimpse or “preview” of what they can expect to see after plastic surgery.
Imagine that you are considering breast augmentation, but you need help picking out the size and type of your implants. The Crisalix technology scans your breasts in 2D with an iPad, and then the app helps you to “try on” different brands, shapes and sizes of implants.
Crisalix technology is different from other digital imaging systems in that it comes with a virtual reality headset for prospective patients to use. When you put on the Crisalix virtual reality glasses and look down at your chest, it will appear as though your breasts have been instantly augmented. This process helps eliminate some of the guesswork involved with selecting implants. It can aid in your decision-making process and help you avoid choosing implants that are too large or that don’t look good on your frame.
Another advantage of Crisalix is that the before and after images are digitally available for you to show to your friends or family anytime you want, so you can ask their opinion. Or, you can share your images in Crisalix’s online community and ask fellow users to vote or tell you which image they think is best for you.
