Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Dr. Lowen has been in the private practice of plastic surgery for 25 years. Trained at Stanford and the University of Colorado, he is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. He specializes in cosmetic surgery of the face, breast and body, and is well-known for his attention to detail and excellent results.
When someone thinks about modifying their physical aspect, seeing the outcome beforehand is essential. Already for a simple act of choosing new clothes, one is used to trying on before buying. It is therefore understandable that only once a person has seen a 3D simulation answering the question “how could I look after the procedure?” that they can properly imagine and understand the change they are contemplating.
Crisalix is the world’s first web-based 3D simulator for aesthetic procedures, which recreates in 3D the patient’s face or body using three standard 2D photos that the patient uploaded from the comfort of their home. The 3D images are generated by Crisalix and sent to the doctor before the patient even comes to the clinic to enable accurate pre-visualizations of the final result of the procedure during the consultation.
The surgeon can concentrate exclusively on understanding and clarifying the patient’s desires and expectations, without spending precious time taking photos or preparing the 3D images. The patient can actively participate in the process of generating the 3D images and seeing their new face or body in 3D, as opposed to imagining the result using traditional methods, such as photos of other patients that do not represent the patient’s own anatomy.
This breakthrough technology, now offered by Dr. Lowen, increases patient education, understanding and interaction, to further optimize in-consultation and post-procedure satisfaction.
What do patients and the world’s top plastic surgeons say about Crisalix?
A recent study carried out in Switzerland on patients who had breast augmentation between 2011 and 2012 and who saw Crisalix 3D simulations of their new body during pre-surgery consultations showed that 87.5% felt Crisalix allowed them to express their desires and expectations and all were either satisfied or very satisfied with the 3D images.
“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." – Prof. Jan Poell, Plastic Surgeon, former President of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
Crisalix’s technology is recommended by the world’s leading federation in this field.
IPRAS, the leading international federation for Plastic Surgery, recommends Crisalix (http://www.crisalix.com) for the significant progress its 3D simulation technology brings to the entire medical community, along with its contribution to patient education and a more informed decision-making process. Patients using Crisalix have demonstrated much higher levels of satisfaction, corresponding directly to IPRAS’ objectives in improving the care and treatment of every patient seeking plastic surgery.
