Our goal is to give plastic surgery candidates all the resources available for a safe and successful surgery.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 2, 2009
Recovery Elements, an online compression garments retailer, has always been dedicated to providing resources to cosmetic surgery patients after their procedures, providing liposuction garments, breast augmentation surgical bras, and more. Now Recovery Elements’ website is a helpful resource before surgery as well; 3D animation of most plastic surgery procedures is now available at RecoveryElements.com.
The 3D animation on the Recovery Elements site was created by Understand.com in exclusive partnership with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Currently, most doctors verbally explain procedures and provide handouts. The new 3D animation allows patients to watch the surgery itself in detail while audio narration explains each step thoroughly. Patients may print their own informational handouts directly from the animation page.
“Our goal is to give plastic surgery candidates all the resources available for a safe and successful surgery,” says Cindy Dietz of Recovery Elements. “This means providing all the information we can for those considering surgery using this new 3D animation, and supplying compression garments necessary for the post-procedure healing process, including liposuction garments and breast augmentation surgical bras.”
The 3D animation software developed by Understand.com fills a major disconnect between information provided to patients and information retained by patients after consultation. In studies, patients either recalled or were only given partial information about the surgery they were to undergo. Now, patients can watch the procedure when they want and print pages to write notes or questions about the procedure to ask their doctors. This helps both doctor and patient communicate effectively and make sure they understand the surgical procedure thoroughly.
“We are pleased to offer this informational 3D animation to educate potential patients,” Dietz adds.
