Plastic Surgery 3D Imaging Reveals the Future

We keep our office current with the most sophisticated and creative technology. One of the best ways we do this is by providing access to plastic surgery 3D imaging. This technological wonder enables experimentation with various looks. Using Vectra 3D Imaging on a patient is like giving that patient the ability to see into the future.

How It Works

Plastic surgery 3D imaging produces detailed replications that reveal how our procedures could change faces and bodies. Our plastic surgery 3D imaging uses several specialized 3D cameras. These cameras take photos of the body part or parts the patient wishes to change. The photos capture several different angles of the area all at once. These images are saved as a digital source of the present physical state. It is quite helpful to see the body in this way, as it looks different from how it looks in the mirror. Therefore, the patient can make a more informed decision about moving forward with the surgery.

Next, the plastic surgery 3D imaging machine alters the images until the patient is happy with the changes. Having various 3D angles of the targeted area proves essential to the decision-making process with regards to surgery implant size, reduction, and style. It enlightens and reassures the potential of metamorphosis.

The Endless Varieties

One of the great things about this device is that it provides a range of looks for everyone no matter age, race, or sex. There is no limit on what can be seen once the second image is secured. It even provides looks that show the body with or without clothes. Another great aspect of this technology is that we do not charge for its use. During the consultation, the use of plastic surgery 3D imaging is free. Even better, it is completely painless.

 

Plastic Surgery Digital Imaging Can Mean Better Results

In the past, you often needed a good imagination to figure out what you would look like after plastic surgery. But with the use of plastic surgery digital imaging, we can provide you with a 3D virtual image of your face or body after your proposed procedures, so you can get a visual of the results that you can expect. This useful tool has several benefits that make the consultation and surgery process less stressful. Here are a few reasons why 3D imaging is used at our practice:

You Can View a Real Image

With special 3D cameras that take photos from multiple angles, we can create three-dimensional images of your body for you to take home with you after the consultation. That way, you don’t have to rely solely on your imagination to visualize the proposed changes to your face and/or body; you actually see a photo of what you may look like. Our use of plastic surgery digital imaging means you’ll have a better idea of how your face and/or body will change after your procedure(s) in a way that wasn’t possible before.

Better Communication

Because 3D imaging offers photos of the type of results that you can expect, our staff can better explain each proposed change, allowing you to better understand what will be done to your face and/or body. This usually means more effective communication because you can tell us right away if you’re not happy or comfortable with certain aspects of the procedure. With plastic surgery digital imaging, we’ll get a better idea of what you hope to achieve and you’ll have a better idea of what the procedure will actually entail, which usually means more effective results.

Better Photos to Track Your Recovery

Using the state-of-the-art cameras in our Vectra 3D Imaging machine before and after your procedure allows us to track your progress from every angle. These cameras can capture even the smallest changes so you and Dr. Franckle can better review your recovery after the procedure.

 

Rita Wilson Shares Her Double Mastectomy Story

person

Fifty-eight year old actress Rita Wilson recently announced, after a diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma, that she underwent a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction, with husband Tom Hanks by her side. She is expected to make a full recovery, which she attributes to an exceptional medical team and, a second opinion.

In an exclusive statement to People magazine, the actress went on to say that she has had an underlying condition of LCIS (lobular carcinoma in situ), which was monitored through yearly mammograms and breast MRIs. She then found, after two breast biopsies, PLCIS (pleomorphic carcinoma in situ) but the pathology found no cancer.

Even with this diagnosis, Wilson sought a second opinion. Her gut told her to seek extra help, and in this case, it was right. The second pathologist found invasive lobular carcinoma. Again, she sought out for another opinion. Her third pathologist confirmed that there was cancer. Wilson took time off from her hit Broadway musical “Fish in the Dark” to take care of this pressing health issue.

Rita Wilson is now the third actress in the past few years to share her story of a double mastectomy and reconstruction, after Angelina Jolie and Giuliana Rancic. These women chose to reveal their experiences to help educate and comfort other women on their own medical journeys. They told the same story: an early diagnosis, seeking multiple opinions, and trusting your instincts are key to overcoming with strength and dignity, just like countless women have.

 

Angelina Jolie Pitt: Her Public Decisions & Why She Shared

The media has been abuzz with Angelina Jolie Pitt’s latest article in the New York Times, Angelina Jolie Pitt: Diary of a Surgery, published March 24tmodel-1-3h, 2015. But this story goes back to May 14th, 2013, when the same source published My Medical Choice, also by Angelina. We explore her announcements, and how they can help women who are experiencing the same endeavors. The well-known actress and special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has been extremely public about the two decisions chronicled in her New York Times articles: first to have a double mastectomy, and then to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.

Angelina Jolie Pitt’s mother died at the age of 56, after battling cancer for nearly a decade. Her family history indicates that she too will face cancer at a young age, as indicated by the presence of the BRCA1 gene. The “faulty” gene indicated to doctors that the actress and activist had an 87% chance of breast cancer, and a 50% chance of ovarian cancer at the time. Jolie Pitt’s mother only lived to meet her first grandchild, and after telling her children that she wouldn’t face the same illness as “Mommy’s mommy”, Jolie Pitt decided to have a double mastectomy. She finished the lengthy process on April 27th, after three months of multiple procedures. She wrote the May 14th article to inform other women of her story, and make sure they too knew their options.

On March 24th, 2015, Jolie Pitt’s second article went to print, this time about her decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. Once again, Angelina made the decision based on tests, research, and the consideration of all options and outcomes.

After routine tests, her doctor told her that her risk of ovarian cancer had now increased from 50% to 75%.

She visited the surgeon that had treated her mother, and after much exploration and research, made the decision to have a laparoscopic bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. This procedure is easier than a mastectomy, but the results more sever. The surgeons found one small benign tumor, but no signs of cancer. Angelina now has a patch of bio-identical estrogen, and a progesterone IUD. Both not only balance the hormones, but also reduce her chance of uterine cancer.

Throughout both articles, Angelina Jolie Pitt stresses that this is not an attempt to dictate to women how to handle their medical choices. She is simply telling women the most important advice when it comes to medical risks: do your research, look at all of your options, and choose what is best for you.

After realizing her risk of ovarian cancer had increased to 75%, she called her husband Brad Pitt in France, and he was on a plane almost immediately.

After much suffering, the actress and activist still finds a way to be positive, and tells us: “The most beautiful thing about such moments in life is that there is so much clarity”.

 

 

PPSA to Offer New Alternative to Round Breast Implants

The Natrelle 410 series has become increasingly popular among patients 22 years or older seeking breast augmentation or reconstruction. Premier Plastic Surgery Arts is proud to be able to offer more sizes in the silicone gel implant.

VOORHEES, N.J. (PRWEB) January 06, 2015

Premier Plastic Surgery Arts will begin offering Allergan Natrelle Silicone Gel Implants in more styles starting January 2015. The popular 410 series silicone gel breast implant, also known as the “gummy bear,” will be available in more sizes for breast augmentation and breast reconstruction for patients 22 and older.

The Natrelle 410 is specifically engineered with a gradually tapered slope designed to mirror a woman’s natural curves. With new advances in silicone gel technology, the implant is also designed to hold its shape, allowing the implant to resist rippling and stay in place. Additionally, the Natrelle 410 has seen no gel migration over seven years in ruptured implants.

“This is very good news,“ says Voorhees Plastic Surgeon Dr. William Franckle. “We have been waiting for the FDA to approve the remainder of sizes available in this style implant. Many of my patients have thought about using the gummy bear implant but were disappointed by the lack of projection or fullness offered in the available sizes.” The FDA originally approved the medium projection style 410 implants in February 2013.

The low, medium, and full height styles are now available, each with low, medium, full, or extra projection. “This is as close as you can get to a custom implant for breast augmentation. These different shapes can give a better fit and, thus, a more natural appearance for the woman interested in enhancing her breasts.”
