Plastic Surgery App & Results
Recently plastic surgery is becoming more and more of a hot topic as baby boomers are seeking to look younger and more rejuvenated. But, have you ever considered what type of results you may have before you even undergo a procedure? There may be an app for that. More and more doctors are using applications in order to show them what the result may look like. Dr. Daniel Daube working at Gulf Coast Facial Plastics & ENT Center offers an iPhone/android app which can give you an instant preview. The app also shoes before/after photos from real surgeries as well as the ability to ask questions and contact the practice at any time. After you’re done playing with the images to get the desired result you can then email the before and after photos to Dr. Daube’s office in order to get a quote.
However, Dr. Daube’s is not the only application on the market. There are some more sophisticated ones which you will need to step into an office for a consultation. Dr. Dainel Diaco, a Tampa based surgeon offers a multi-camera system call the Axis Three which allows a patient to get an idea of how big a 600 cc breast implant can be and if it will be the right fit for the patient. In addition to this, the patient can also preview various other procedures such as liposuction, rhinoplasty, and others.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has also recently launched an app platform which allows members to create their own apps that can be tailored to their own practice. It serves as a marketing and patient education tool that is preloaded with e-brochures, pre- and post-op check lists, video galleries and much more.
Even though there are these practical apps, there are also some novelty apps that are available on app stores that are not as sophisticated. These allow you to morph and shape yourself as you see fit, often allowing you to do whatever you please in order to have a little bit of fun. You can give yourself a large head, bust, shrink your head, etc. They are quite fun for a short amount of time, but don’t expect to send these photos to your plastic surgeon for consultation.
