Cosmetic Surgery – Virtual breast augmentation

03 September 2018

Using the latest "Crisalix” technology, our plastic surgeons can provide prospective breast augmentation patients a 3D visualisation of how their size might increase with various shapes and sizes of implants.

This tablet based technology produces a 3D surface image of your chest by taking images from various directions. With a click of a button you can see what you may look like after surgery, with and without clothes.

"As with any virtual planning, one has to remember that virtual reality will not necessarily reflect the outcome and in no way can the computer outcomes be guaranteed" said Ken Stewart, a Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Spire Edinburgh. "Nevertheless it's a very useful tool, along with sizers in a non-padded bra to help patients choose (their) implant size."

The process of acquiring the image and performing the computer manipulations takes minutes. The system also allows the images to be shared with the prospective patient via a personalised patient only and password protected link. 

Book a consultation with one of our Consultant Plastic Surgeon's Mr Ken Stewart, Mr Cameron Raine, Mr Mark Butterworth or Mr Omar Quaba to take advantage of this new technology.
