Philadelphia Plastic Surgeon Employs 3D Imaging for Consultations

Dr. David Bottger, a board-certified plastic surgeon, employs sophisticated Crisalix® 3D imaging software at his Philadelphia practice, which allows patients to see a virtual preview of potential cosmetic surgery results during their consultation.

Philadelphia, PA — In recent decades, cosmetic surgery has become an increasingly popular option to reverse the clock on your appearance and enhance your natural features. For many people considering a cosmetic procedure, simply perusing through other patients’ before-and-after photos to glean an idea of the prospective results isn’t enough. These photos vary widely and are subjective in nature, sometimes creating false expectations for the outcome that can lead to dissatisfaction after surgery. To overcome this dissonance, Philadelphia plastic surgeon David Bottger, MD utilizes Crisalix® 3D imaging during his patient consultations, a state-of-the-art tool that can paint a three-dimensional, realistic picture of potential results and make the decision-making process easier and more collaborative than ever.

Crisalix® allows you to view a high-quality, 3D image of how you may look after breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck surgery, or any of the range of other procedures offered by Dr. Bottger. Unlike exploring a patient gallery, Crisalix® allows patients to actually see the potential outcome of their surgery and make an informed decision about whether they want to go through with said procedure. Crisalix® can improve consultations in a number of ways, including:

Clinical data shows that with Crisalix®, the patient satisfaction rate after surgery is nearly 99 percent. What’s more, roughly 97 percent of men and women believe the results depicted by Crisalix® were similar to their actual surgical outcome. Dr. Bottger notes that cosmetic surgery is a major decision that should be given the utmost consideration. He believes this cutting-edge technology will vastly improve the consultation process and make it easier for patients to make educated decisions about their health, safety, and appearance.
