Dr. Masson’s cosmetic surgery office is the first in Paris to be equipped with 3D and 4D augmented reality technology via the EVE 4.0 breast augmentation simulator. A great novelty for the year 2020.
What is augmented reality? To get a clearer understanding, watch the video below.
It is never easy to imagine the results of a breast augmentation plus it’s also common to hesitate between two different sizes of implants, augmented reality now makes it much easier for a patient to visualize the results of the operation upon her breasts.
During your consultation in the office, a painless 3D scan of the breasts is performed very easily in less than 3 minutes using a visual capturing device. A 3D image model of the breasts is thus obtained and projected onto a television screen. This model is very important for the surgeon because it automatically calculates the volume of each breast, volume distribution at the level of each quadrant, and automatically and safely takes all the other usual measurements as well (distance between the sternum and the areola, between the areola and submammary groove, etc.). This is of great technical help in choosing the breast prosthesis.
The software is able, live and in real-time, to render in 3 dimensions the implant volume chosen during the fitting by the patient and the surgeon. The image is projected live onto a television screen and also in 4D onto the patient’s body in order to best visualize the results of the operation. It is as if you are looking at yourself in a mirror.
A mode is also available for ptosis correction and breast reduction where it is never easy for a patient to imagine what her future breasts will look like.
This technique is a real innovation because it simplifies the choice of implant, makes it easier to correct asymmetries, allows patients to visualize more clearly the results they can hope for and, also, to compare two different sizes of implants.
