Dr. Baxter is offering his patients the breakthrough benefits of e-Stetix© during breast augmentation consultations. With this new 3D simulation technology he can finally answer that most important question that patients ask: How could I look after my surgery?
What is e-Stetix©?
e-Stetix© is the first fully interactive web-based 3D simulator for breast augmentation, based on the patient’s physical properties. With just three standard digital photos and a few body measurements, e-Stetix© generates an immediate 3D simulation of the patient’s pre-surgery body. With a few clicks, Dr. Baxter and his patient position the desired implant, selected from a comprehensive implant catalogue and specify the insertion technique, to generate a remarkably accurate, instantaneous 3D simulation of the patient’s post-surgery body.
The first 3D Virtual Wardrobe
For the first time in plastic surgery history, patients seeking breast augmentation can visualize their new bodies in 3D, dressed for any occasion. With e-Stetix©, Dr. Baxter takes the consultation to yet another level and satisfies his patient’s ultimate desire: to know how her ‘new’ body will look in her favorite clothes. The 3D Virtual Wardrobe from e-Stetix© allows the patient to easily imagine how she will look after surgery and see herself in her new life; with a trendy décolleté for a dinner party with friends, a revealing bikini for her beach holiday, or a chic office ensemble.
Ahead of the market, and moving forward
This sophisticated state-of-the-art web-based “cloud” solution is now available worldwide, 24/7, to physicians and their patients, and requires no software or hardware installation. Although currently available only for breast augmentations, e-Stetix© 3D simulations for liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose enhancements) and face, brow, and eye lifts are in development and will be introduced in the near future. With visual imaging standards changing rapidly from 2D to 3D for everything from TV to movies, 3D consultations for aesthetic procedures will soon be every patient’s requirement.
What do women say about e-Stetix©3D?
A Swiss survey between November 2007 and February 2010 showed that 90% of women would prefer a surgeon using a 3D simulator over a surgeon using standard methods for showing post-surgical results (bra & sizers).
What do the world’s top plastic surgeons say about e-Stetix©?
Dr. Prof. Jan Poell, MD (Switzerland), President, ISAPS (International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery www.isaps.org):
“This is a fantastic revolution for the patient as well as for the surgeon. For the patient, there is nothing like seeing simulations of her own body. This technology should help all surgeons, from novice to advanced, in establishing realistic patient expectations and improving results."
Thomas Biggs, MD (USA), Editor-in-Chief, Journal of the International Confederation of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons www.ipras.org; Past President, ISAPS; co-inventor of the silicone breast implant:
“It is very exciting to a plastic surgeon from anywhere in the world! You take 3 photographs, and within 5 minutes, you receive a significant, sophisticated 3D simulation of your patient.”
Watches aren’t Switzerland’s only precision technology.
Crisalix SA (http://www.crisalix.com) is a spin-off from two internationally acclaimed Swiss academic R&D centers: the Institute of Surgical Technology and Biomechanics (www.istb.unibe.ch) at the University of Bern and Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (www.epfl.ch). Launched in 2006 with the support of the Swiss CO-ME network (Computer Aided and Image Guided Medical Interventions - http://co-me.ch/), Crisalix and their breakthrough simulation technology are supported by the world’s most recognized plastic surgeons, with a Medical Advisory Board that includes Prof. Yves-Gérard Illouz (inventor of liposuction).
