As we progress into a new decade, it’s important to take advantage of the latest technological advancements in the healthcare industry. This is especially true for cosmetic surgery. Dr. Jejurikar is one of an increasing number of cosmetic surgeons who have adopted Crisalix 3D imaging technology to enhance patient consultations.
In just a few short minutes, Crisalix 3D imaging enables Dr. Jejurkiar to import a 3D model of his patients into a fully interactive virtual environment. The patient can then view the model from several angles and suggest changes in real-time.
While Crisalix 3D imaging can work for a range of procedures, it’s often used for one of the most in-demand cosmetic surgeries currently offered – Breast Augmentation.
How does Crisalix 3D imaging work?
Crisalix 3D imaging is an amalgamation of innovative technologies that empower cosmetic surgeons to answer their patients’ most pressing questions:
What will my new chest look like? How young will I look? Will my butt really look bigger and rounder?
Crisalix 3D imaging will answer these questions and more by transporting the patient into a virtual environment where they can freely examine their 3D model. During the consultation, the cosmetic surgeon can add and remove cosmetic enhancements from the model in real-time. In doing so, the patient will have a physical model to examine and modify until they’re satisfied, allowing them to proceed with the surgery with more confidence.
The Crisalix is a tool that works to the advantage of both the surgeon and the patient. On the one hand, the Crisalix makes it easier for cosmetic surgeons to ease apprehension and doubt before surgery.
On the other hand, patients are given a front-row seat to their transformation prior to surgery, giving them unprecedented control over their results. If the patient isn’t a fan of how their 3D model appears with teardrop breasts, for example, they can easily switch to a rounder option. It’s a win-win situation for both parties.
Using virtual imaging for Breast Augmentation
While Dr. Jejurikar uses Crisalix 3D imaging for a wide range of procedures, he often uses it for Breast Augmentations. This is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures among female patients, though male patients can also undergo the surgery if desired.
Many patients who opt for Breast Augmentation desire breasts that are larger, smaller, rounder, firmer, or simply the way they used to be before gaining weight or having a baby. Ultimately, improving the shape and appearance of your breasts can boost both physical appearance and self-esteem.
Are you a good candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Before proceeding to a virtual consultation with Dr. Jejuirkar, it’s important to recognize whether you’re a good candidate for Breast Augmentation. Here are the factors that are taken into consideration before surgery:
- Your breasts are unevenly sized
- Your breasts sag after significant weight loss
- Your breasts have become flatter after you’ve had children
- Your outfit tops and bottoms are different sizes
- You feel self-conscious about the size of your breasts
The above factors can have a significant impact on your self-esteem and are often the primary reason that many patients express interest in Breast Augmentation. By improving the size and shapes of your breasts, you may see changes both physically and mentally.
Using Crisalix 3D imaging for Breast Augmentation
Crisalix imaging technology specializes in transporting patients into a virtual environment where they can view their 3D models from a multitude of angles.
For Breast Augmentation, this allows patients to “try on” a range of breasts during the consultation. For example, let’s say a patient is interested in having larger breasts. However, upon viewing the enhancements in the virtual environment, they may find that medium-sized breasts are a better fit. The same concept could be applied to teardrop breasts vs. rounder breasts.
As you cycle through the options, you can freely voice your opinions on each choice, enabling your cosmetic surgeon to customize your 3D model until you’re fully satisfied with the result. The goal of the consultation is to erase any doubts or questions you may have so that you can proceed with the surgery with complete confidence.
Breast Augmentation surgery and recovery
Breast Augmentation will only take one to two hours from beginning to end and is typically performed under general anesthesia. Under the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Jejurikar, scarring will be minimal.
When it comes to recovery, it typically takes about a week or so before most patients can return to work. You may also experience pain, swelling, and sensitivity during the first few weeks of recovery. However, this too should fade with time, in addition to any scarring that may occur during the surgery.
It’s important to touch on current world events, the COVID-19 pandemic to be specific, and how it may affect future consultations with cosmetic surgeons like Dr. Jejurikar. To limit the spread of the virus, many businesses and industries have taken measures to limit physical contact.
Thankfully, the Crisalix comes with an e-health app that enables Dr. Jejurikar to provide virtual consultations with clients from the comfort of home.
The app works similarly to an in-person consultation. Patients will be required to take three selfies with their smartphones that will generate a 3D model of their face or breasts. Dr. Jejurikar can than add surgical enhancements to the model just as he would with an in-person consultation.
As such, you will still enjoy the benefits of Crisalix 3D imaging without exposing yourself to unnecessary risk by traveling to a physical location. No one knows how long this pandemic will last or how far it will spread.
It’s important to recognize measures many have coined as the “new normal.” Only time will tell how long these measures will be necessary, but in the meantime Dr. Jejurikar and many of his colleagues have vowed to continue providing world-class consultations and services for their patients.
