3D virtual reality breast technology at Spire Cheshire Hospital

23 January 2017

Are you considering breast surgery ?  
Wondering about cup sizes, volumes and shapes?
What if you could see yourself with any changes before they actually happen?

Now you can, with 3D virtual reality breast technology at Spire Cheshire Hospital.

A new and exciting technology has arrived to help you visualise your post-operative results in reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery. Having a breast enlargement or a breast reconstruction is a big decision and part of that decision is which size implant to choose. Now, using 3D scanning software on handheld devices coupled with virtual reality goggles, you can try on different implant sizes virtually and really experience what you will look like with that size implant.

Virtual reality technology allows you to see several views as if looking in a mirror and, best of all, you look downwards and see what the real view of your new breasts will be like!

Mr Gerard Lambe, consultant plastic surgeon at Spire Cheshire Hospital, offers the Crisalix 3D simulations with an innovative mobile sensor for breast augmentation.

Anyone interested in breast augmentation can see what their new breasts could look like, before actually going for the procedure. It is possible to simulate both round and shaped implants as well as how they will look both under and over the muscle. The full catalogue of implants can be selected to really hone in on the exact result you want to achieve.

How it works:

The consultant will scan your body with an iPad with a special sensor and in just one click your own body will appear in 3D. Then the consultant simulates the surgical procedure with the actual implants that will be used and you will be able to see how the shape and size will look on your own body. 

You will see a “before and after” image, which helps to get a good idea of how a certain volume will appear on your body. The consultant can also show you the difference between round and anatomical (tear drop shaped) implants.

After the consultation a secure email will be sent to you containing a link. With this link, you can again look at the 3D image at home, from your computer or on a smartphone, and share it with your partner or close friends.

Mr Gerard Lambe discusses breast augmentation and the use of 3D virtual reality technology here.

"A breast augmentation operation is a big decision and one that many women mull over for some time. There is now so much information available on the internet that it can become quite overwhelming to decide what is right for you. I’m always looking for new ways in which to help patients make their own choice about surgery and to give them the best idea of just how they will look after a procedure. That is why I use Crisalix 3D Virtual Reality software to help my patients with their decision about how to progress with their breast augmentation surgery."

Mr Lambe said "Patients really enjoy looking at the images from home; this offers them the possibility to see the images again in a relaxed environment, think about it thoroughly and share it with people they trust before making a considered informed decision".

Come along for a consultation with Mr Gerard Lambe and take the guess work out of breast augmentation and breast reconstruction surgery. Call 01925 215 029 for more information.
