In a Swedish study of breast augmentation patients there were several interesting conclusions. First, patients prefer a center that offers 3-D imaging technology. Second, they felt that the simulation was very helpful in choosing the implant. And finally, they were happy with the implant size they chose. http://links.lww.com/PRS/A840 but you need Power Point to view their results. Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, October 2013, Vol 132, Number 4. This technology is available in our office.

According to Devon Herrick, PhD of the National Center for Policy Analysis, the inflation adjusted price of cosmetic surgery had decreased since 1992, while quality has improved. Patients pay directly. There are few barriers to entry and doctors rush to fill the demand. While emergency cardiac care is different in that patients cannot shop for the cheapest price, only $1 out of $20 is spent on patients who enter through the emergency room door. For most medical care, the only difference is that cosmetic surgery has a competitive market and transparent prices paid by the customer, and "insurance"-paid care does not. Direct pay for a CT scan can reduce the price by 85%. From AAPS News vol 69, no 9, Sept 2013

Various news networks recently reported that a Japanese skin care salon has announced a new facial treatment using live snails crawling about the face. They claim the secreted mucous has skin health benefits. By the way, the reports say the snails were raised organically and fed only healthy organic material. The assistant redirects any snail that comes too close to the nose, mouth or eyes.
Our Skin Care specialists are specially trained, licensed professionals, using professional grade products, and common techniques. They do not provide live snail facials.
What do you think? Would you have such a treatment?

We are the first practice in the Upstate to offer this advanced, new technology. You can have your three dimensional (3D) photograph made, then morphed to demonstrate the results of breast augmentation surgery. "See your afters, before..." is how one surgeon described this technology. Canfield Scientific software and Allergan's Vectra imaging camera system allows us to offer this to potential patients. Over the past year this has become a routine part of our breast augmentation consultations; and one more way to inform and educate patients, so that they can enjoy their results. We crated a new webpage with more information and a simulation, http://www.3Dbreast.net. Please take a look. http://www.expertplasticsurgeon.com/html/3d-imaging-system.html
