Portsmouth, New Hampshire (PressExposure) August 20, 2009 -- âWhat will I look like?â is the number one question patients ask Dr. Lawrence Gray when considering breast augmentation. Now, Dr. Gray of Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center, located on Griffin Road in Portsmouth, NH, can accurately answer this question in 3D pictorial form. Using the very latest in medical technology, The Portrait 3D Surgical Simulation Platform by Axis Three, Dr. Gray and his staff can give patients an actual visual of themselves simulating the before and after â in photo realistic 3D. The Portrait 3D helps Dr. Gray and the patient work together to select just the right implantâsize, form and shape, that best compliments their individual body. Additionally, this cutting edge technology allows greater guidance and direction for more accurate customization, placement and shaping of the implants especially helpful for any asymmetry issues. Importantly, this visualization enables patients to see the desired outcome in realistic 3D from all anglesâoverhead, side, front views, before the procedure is performed and make any necessary adjustments. The simulation is also helpful for patients to understand if breast implants alone would correct sagging skin or if they might need a breast lift.
Dr. Gray is the first and only surgeon in New England to have this advanced technology. On average, Dr. Gray performs about 250 breast augmentations a year, more than 4 times the national average. Currently, there are only 10 of these visualization machines in the U.S. âAt Atlantic Plastic Surgery, our patients love this new technology. It allows them to âtry onâ various sizes and shapes to determine what is right for their body and visually make any adjustment or changes,â says Dr. Gray. âIt increases the comfort level of the patient and with the help of the software; we can show the patient a range of sizes, shapes and placement and take precise accurate volume measurements optimizing what is best for their body. We compare the "before" with up to 5 simulated results.â The Portrait 3D Surgical Simulation Platform by Axis Three is available at Atlantic Plastic Surgery at no extra charge and is included as part of the consultation. âAt Atlantic Plastic Surgery, our goal is to make sure our patients are very happy with their result for a long time to come.â For more information, contact Atlantic Plastic Surgery Center at 1-866-264-7738 or on line at http://www.atlanticplasticsurg.com
