Axis Three Announces Predictive Surgical Simulation in New York for First Time
The Portrait 3D Surgical Simulation Platform, developed by Axis Three(R) of Santa Monica, CA, has been introduced into the plastic surgery office of Dr. David Rapaport this week in New York City. The Portrait 3D is based on breakthrough image capture and simulation technology, and enables surgeons to show a patient what they will look like after breast augmentation surgery.
The Portrait 3D system platform photographs a patient's body before her breast procedure, captures linear and volumetric measurements, and creates an exact three dimensional replica of her body on screen. Dr. Rapaport examines this model with the patient during consultation, and performs breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, or post-mastectomy breast reconstruction on the 3D model to visualize the expected result in advance of an actual surgical procedure. The photo-realistic result can be viewed from all angles, and implant size adjusted to most closely meet the patient's needs. This allows women for the first time to select implant size, shape, and position based on the expected outcome on their own body. Until now, patients have depended primarily on the surgeon's judgment and recommendations alone, supported by his or her reputation, results on photographs of past patients, and their own appearance with various implant sizes placed in their bra.
Manhattan Plastic Surgeon David Rapaport was named one of New York Magazine's Top NYC Plastic Surgeons. David P. Rapaport is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in private practice in Manhattan, New York. Doctor Rapaport's NYC Plastic Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery practice is located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan at 905 5th avenue.
