Are you the type of person who sometimes sneaks a peek at the last page of new novel? Do you always know what’s in those well-wrapped boxes for you under the tree? Are you drawn to movie reviews with blatant spoiler alerts? In short, do you hate surprises?

You’ll be happy to know that there’s an app for that in the world of plastic surgery planning. Dr. Capizzi has been among the first to embrace Crisalix, a new 3-D imaging system. Crisalix is a valuable tool, especially for patients considering breast augmentation surgery. We know you hate surprises, so let us explain how it works:

First, in the privacy of Stillwater’s offices in Charlotte, North Carolina, your R.N. will capture digital photographs of you in your current state. These are the “before” pictures. The anonymous real patient shown in the photo below is a petite mom in her early 40s. She came to Dr. Capizzi seeking a natural look with breast implant surgery and was concerned with being “too big or out of proportion” for her 5’3” frame.

Next, this digital image of Dr. Capizzi’s patient was rendered in 3D within the Crisalix app. The patient’s image in her current state becomes the point of departure for “trying on” different implant types and sizes digitally. Here’s how our patient’s “before” picture is rendered in 3D.

Dr. Capizzi and the patient discussed her breast implant surgery objectives at length. (Dr. Capizzi is known for being a good listener!) Rather than merely imagining results, Stillwater enters potential implant types and sizes into the Crisalix app. The virtual results are rendered directly on the patient’s body. An example is shown below.

As we all know, virtual is not real, but Crisalix is an invaluable guide for Dr. Capizzi’s patients. Dr. Capizzi’s breast augmentation surgery experience is vast. He has performed thousands of breast surgeries in over 15 years of active practice. You can be assured that Dr. Capizzi is always going to be on the cusp of what’s new. In fact, he may be developing it himself! That’s why Stillwater has embraced Crisalix technology. Dr. Capizzi’s expertise, coupled with new 3-D imaging breakthroughs, helps patients make good decisions.

After Act_SnapseedDr. Capizzi’s petite mom could not be happier with her breast augmentation surgery result. This woman’s choice was Sientra Textured Round Moderate Profile Gummy Bears 355cc with submuscular placement.She tells us that 3D imaging was an important tool for her. She knew Dr. Capizzi understood her needs and concerns. Today, 3 months after surgery, she is delighted with the results and believes her real-life outcome is even better than the 3D projection.
