Most people relate to visuals well. Knowing this we created a method for patients to see images of themselves in advance of any elective cosmetic surgery. This has become a vital tool that has a high degree of accuracy in our hands and has proven to be an efficient way of communicating with our patients.
Englewood Cliffs, NJ (PRWEB) January 8, 2008
The Parker Center for Plastic Surgery in Paramus, New Jersey is demonstrating its commitment to patient satisfaction through the use of a professional photographer and computer imaging consultant. Professional photography and computer imaging is an integral part of The Parker Center's cosmetic surgery consultations.
Following the initial meeting with Dr. Paul M. Parker, the Parker Center medical director and one of the foremost New Jersey plastic surgeons, Dr. Parker and his team will leverage the latest in imaging technology to better explain the details of the surgical procedure, and what the patient will look like following the surgery.
Patients at The Parker Center for Plastic Surgery in New Jersey will spend time with an imaging consultant carefully reviewing the proposed changes in detail. This part of the consultation has proved invaluable in clarifying the surgical plan.
Dr. Parker believes, "Most people relate to visuals well. Knowing this we created a method for patients to see images of themselves in advance of any elective cosmetic surgery. This has become a vital tool that has a high degree of accuracy in our hands and has proven to be an efficient way of communicating with our patients."
All imaging is done by Dr. Parker's imaging consultant, Liz Kobb - an experienced imager - who has trained plastic surgeons and their staff across the country. Dr. Parker reviews these images the night before surgery as part of his pre-operative planning. He then brings the images with him to the operating room for surgery and uses the computer images much like sculptor uses his sketches to guide his hand.
Postoperative photographs of Dr. Parker's patients consistently confirm the accuracy of the imaging process in predicting postoperative results.
This type of predictability requires both and expert imager and expert surgeon working together on a daily basis so that both are aware of one another's capabilities.
