Marlton, N.J. (PRWEB) April 2, 2009
A local breast augmentation plastic surgeon is the first to offer patients in the greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey areas an opportunity to plan procedures more accurately using a technologically advanced computer imaging system. Dr. Evan Sorokin (http://www.delawarevalleybreasts.com), a board-certified plastic surgeon performing cosmetic and reconstructive procedures such as breast enlargement in New Jersey says that his patients are already benefiting from his practice's newly acquired digital imaging system, which offers the next generation of imaging technology and allows women to preview and compare possible surgical outcomes before surgery.
"I'm very excited to see how this system is already helping my patients clarify their goals," Dr. Sorokin says. "Today, since breast augmentation patients in New Jersey have so many options to choose from, I am always looking for new ways to simplify the decision-making process. My patients definitely appreciate being able to compare their options visually, and the system factors in each patient's skin and tissue type to more accurately reflect cosmetic surgery results."
The Axis Three Portrait 3D system, which Dr. Sorokin recently installed in his Marlton, New Jersey office, uses a specialized system to take multiple-angle photographs of the patient's current shape. The surgeon then uses software to combine these images into a three-dimensional model that the surgeon can adjust to demonstrate possible surgical outcomes based on the type, size, projection, and placement of the breast implant.
"One big benefit of the Axis Three imaging system is that it uses photos of the patient herself and takes her own, unique tissue characteristics into account when it renders an image," explains Dr. Sorokin. "Many surgeons offer photo galleries to help patients understand their options more clearly, but there is a big difference between seeing someone else's results with different implant types, and seeing those options on your own shape. It's much more personal."
The new system offers highly customizable options for the surgeon to adjust for different implant types, placement options, and sizes, helping ensure that the breast enlargement patient and her New Jersey plastic surgeon have the same goals in mind.
"Computer imaging is a useful tool, but women still should be careful to find a surgeon who is highly skilled and can deliver on the results they envision," explains Dr. Sorokin. "A skilled surgeon uses computer imaging to create a visual, very personal reference that can start the discussion about breast implant options. This helps New Jersey women understand their choices better and make decisions they can feel confident about."
While the system cannot approximate every detail with total accuracy, Dr. Sorokin has found that the images created by the Axis Three system very closely mirror his patients' ultimate results. "Even though I use advanced techniques to minimize swelling and shorten recovery time, I still advise patients that it can be several weeks before their breast implants 'settle' into a lower, more natural position. Having the vision of her final results through computer imaging helps a patient see that this phase of the surgery is only temporary and reminds her what she has to look forward to. Axis Three computer imaging really does represent the state of the art when it comes to breast enhancement procedures."
