Answer your patients' questions using 3D imaging simulation
Cosmetic procedures can be life-changing experiences for many patients, and it is essential that the physician informed and prepared the patient for the process.
Patients may have doubts and concerns about the risks, outcomes, and recovery periods, this might be reduced by having a comprehensive consultation with the doctor. This consultation allows patients to understand the procedure, the potential results, and the risks involved.
It also allows the doctor to assess the patient's expectations. Answering questions and addressing concerns can help build trust and alleviate any anxiety the patient may have, leading to a more positive experience overall.
Patients frequently inquire about and worry about the following topics:
- What is the procedure and how is it carried out? How could I look like after plastic surgery?
Using 3D imaging simulation you can show the potential results of various surgical and cosmetic procedures, also you can make changes live to show your patients different ways to approach the procedure.
- What are the risks and potential complications associated with the procedure?
3D simulation technology allows you to show the patient how the procedure will affect the surrounding tissues and structures, and how any potential complications may arise. You could have 3D images already prepared with different complications to be able to explain and educate the patient in a more visual way. This allows the patient to make a more informed decision about their treatment options.
- What are the benefits of the procedure?
With 3D simulation technology you can answer this question quickly, since you have the opportunity to show the patient the simulation with a possible outcome of the surgery and highlight the potential benefits of the procedure at the same time.
- I want my nose/body/breast like this celebrity…I want to look like my friend…
These are difficult, because how do you tell the patient who is not going to look like her friend or a certain celebrity, right? What you can do with the use of the 3D simulation technology is to show live the possible results based on its own anatomy, which in the end will result in the great satisfaction of the patient.
- Will I have scars, how will they see?
With the simulation you can show the patient the expected location and size of any potential scars after the procedure and even their possible evolution over time. This allows the patient to have a better understanding of the potential outcome and manage their expectations accordingly.
- How much will it cost me?
Patients are interested in understanding both the financial cost and the potential benefits of the procedure. Using 3D imaging simulation can help you answer both aspects of this question by providing a potential outcome of the procedure before it’s happened, which has a great value! It can also help to increase the value perceived by the patient of the whole service provided. Therefore the cost of the surgical or aesthetics procedure may become less of a concern, despite increasing the price of treatment.
If you don't have the necessary resources, some of those questions are more challenging to answer.
However, there is cutting-edge technology available today that can assist you with this, such as 3D simulation technology, like we mentioned before.
So…how can Crisalix help you answer these kinds of questions?
Crisalix, the world's leading 3D & 4D Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality medical aesthetic imaging & business solution, allows patients to preview their potential results before undergoing a cosmetic procedure. This helps patients to better understand the procedure and what they may expect from the outcome. By using Crisalix 3D imaging and simulation technology, patients can see a representation of their results and ask questions or voice concerns.
Additionally, Crisalix can be utilized as a tool for communication between the patient and their physician, enabling them to work together on the outcome and make any required adjustments prior to the treatment. which certainly improves patient-doctor communication
This results in a more informed decision-making and a great post-treatment satisfaction.
