Axis Three: See Your Results Before Having Surgery
If you’re considering a cosmetic enhancement procedure, such as breast augmentation or rhinoplasty, you’ve probably reviewed dozens if not hundreds of before-and-after photos to help you determine what kind of changes you would like to make. However, your anatomy and aesthetic goals are unique, and your results will be just as singular. With this in mind, our experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Perry often utilizes state-of-the-art Axis Three 3D visualization technology during consultations, to ensure the highest level of customization and satisfaction possible.
Most commonly used for breast augmentation, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), chin implants, and cheek augmentation, Axis Three is an advanced imaging program that can manipulate a three-dimensional digital version of your face or body to show the potential results of an operation. You can then use this simulation to develop a clearer understanding of what to expect from your desired procedure and to refine your cosmetic goals to enhance the outcome. Additionally, Dr. Perry can utilize this advanced technology to analyze and plan the best approach to your surgery, researching which technique can maximize the aesthetic appeal.
Particularly with breast surgery, Axis Three can be thought of as a “virtual dressing room,” in which you can evaluate the appearance of a variety of breast implant shapes and sizes before committing to your preferred combination. Furthermore, the use of this modeling platform can reveal whether a breast lift may be desired in addition to augmentation, and its use may also reduce the need for revisional surgery in the future.
