Surgery Preparation for Breast Augmentation
Preparation for breast augmentation starts with booking a consultation appointment. During your consultation at Après Plastic Surgery in Portland, OR , you will have the benefit of our Crisalix 3D imaging software, which will allow you to visualize what specific implants will look like on you.
We Use Crysalix 3D Technology
Want to know exactly what you’ll look like after your breast augmentation?
Years ago, the way we’d help women find their perfect implants was by simply having them put differently sized implants into their bra. The patient would look at themselves in the mirror from different angles, try out various sizes and shapes, and hopefully find the one that best suited them.
Today, however, there’s a better way. While physical “sizer” implants can still help with sizing, we also use a modern technology called Crisalix 3D Imaging.
What Is Crisalix 3D Imaging?
Crisalix 3D Imaging is a computer software program that shows patients exactly what they’d look like with various physical changes. In the case of breast augmentation, it shows patients what they’d look like with different implants.
With this technology, we’ll first scan your body to produce a 3D image that can be represented on the computer. Using this image, we will then manipulate the volume and shape of your breasts on screen. You’ll be able to guide the changes, telling us what you like and don’t like.
When you’ve reached the representation you are most happy with, we can use these results to identify the ideal breast implants for you.
Once you and Dr. Aghayan have decided on the best implants for your body type, you’ll schedule your surgery. Dr. Aghayan will provide you with personalized instructions on how best to prepare for this day. Your instructions may include guidance to stop or change certain medications, for example. Every patient’s pre-surgery instructions will be different and will depend on their circumstances.
