If you've recently been considering plastic surgery, you've most likely heard of something called Virtual Plastic Surgery. Virtual Plastic Surgery is a photo imaging program that many doctors have been using before surgeries to alter photos of patients, showing them digitally created representations of how their procedure may affect their appearance. Virtual Plastic Surgery is an opportunity to view the finished product prior to undergoing surgery and has opened up a new channel of communication between doctor and patient. Allowing patients to communicate their desired outcome with more clarity and enabling doctors to present the differences in procedural outcomes in a manner that is truly specific to the patient, Virtual Plastic Surgery has helped thousands of plastic surgery patients make more informed decisions and achieve greater results.
Virtual Plastic Surgery software works similarly to photo editing programs, but is much more sophisticated. Professionals are trained to alter images in manners specific to that of the particular surgery. Virtual plastic surgery allows for everything from minor to major changes in the face and body. While many of these programs are available online to the public, the majority of them are not comparable to the caliber of software you will find in the plastic surgeon’s office. Even if you are a Photoshop genius, you’d be hard pressed to come close to achieving the results of these specially designed programs, which utilize advanced algorithms to accurately assess how subtle surgical alterations can impact the patient’s overall look.
Having recently joined a friend in a consultation for a face lift, I had the opportunity to watch the Virtual Plastic Surgery process first hand. Before we sat down, the surgeon photographed my friend at different angles; looking forward, left profile, right profile, tilted up and tilted down. While the photos were uploaded, they discussed the changes my friend would like to see in his face- less creasing around the eyes, no more sagging skin, no more jowls and fuller lips. The surgeon then took us step by stop showing us how each individual change would look at the various angles. The consultation was incredibly helpful, and showed my friend exactly how and where the changes would appear, allowing him to decide what was too much and too little.
Just imagining what your face or body will look like after surgery is a thing of the past- now you're able to view it for yourself and feel secure in knowing that your surgeon actually sees what you want and is prepared to help you achieve it.
