What is Crisalix©?
Crisalix is the world’s first web-based 3D simulator using 2D photos for aesthetic procedures, which recreates in 3D the patient’s face or body to further enable accurate pre-visualizations of the final result. For the first time in the history of aesthetics, a patient can see her new 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.
From only three standard digital photos, Dr. Agius and his patient select the desired implant and specify the insertion technique to generate an accurate, instantaneous 3D simulation of post-procedure results. This breakthrough technology increases patient education, understanding and interaction, to further optimize post-procedure satisfaction.
Crisalix’s technology recommended by IPRAS
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.
What do patients say about Crisalix?
A survey conducted in Switzerland between November 2007 and February 2010 showed that 90% of women would prefer a plastic 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 Crisalix© simulations?
Prof. Jan Poell, MD (Switzerland), President, ISAPS (http://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. "
