Breast augmentation, like any plastic surgery, is a monumental decision. Even when you’re seeing an experienced, board-certified surgeon, not knowing exactly how you’ll look when you come out of surgery can cause anxiety.
At North Texas Plastic Surgery, we know that the uncertainty heading into your breast augmentation surgery can be a cause of trepidation. Because we want to do our utmost to make our patients comfortable and confident they’ll get the results they want, we strive to eliminate that ambiguity as much as possible. That’s why we’re proud to offer the Crisalix 3D Virtual Reality System that lets you visualize your results before your procedure. Here’s how it works.
Your Breast Augmentation Options
During your breast augmentation consultation, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sacha Obaid will walk you through your numerous options to customize your procedure. Your choices include:
- Breast implant type
- Breast implant placement
- Breast implant size
- Breast augmentation incision location
The variety of options at your disposal can be overwhelming when you don’t know how your results will look. Because of this, Dr. Obaid uses Crisalix to alleviate that uncertainty.
How Crisalix Works
Crisalix was the first web-based 3D simulator for plastic surgery. Dr. Obaid offers two ways to use Crisalix: online 3D imaging and virtual reality. The 3D imaging is simple. Dr. Obaid will take three pictures of you, from the front, left side, and right side. Then, he’ll upload the images to the Crisalix app, where they’ll turn into a 3D model that shows your body from multiple angles.
Dr. Obaid will also put different breast implant sizes, types, and placements into the system to show you can “try on” numerous options to see what you’ll look like afterward.
Crisalix has also designed new virtual reality gear that allows you to see in the first person what your results will look like. The Crisalix virtual reality headset uses the same technology as Oculus Rift, the wearable 3D device created by Oculus VR and Samsung. The technology includes a sensor tool, software that creates a virtual environment, and the headset you wear that lets you see the virtual reality.
Dr. Obaid will use the sensor tool to scan your body. The software will create a virtual 3D environment and, using the VR glasses, you’ll be able to look down and see what your new breasts will look like in the first person. As with the online 3D imaging, Dr. Obaid will be able to change the customization options, so you can see how you would look with a variety of different breast augmentation variations.
