SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., August 16, 2017 (Newswire.com) - With the rise of TeleMedicine, it is becoming clear that the best medical care is not limited to geography. A Newport Beach, California-based plastic surgeon is now using the latest developments in technology to have remote consultations with patients who live outside of the city of the rich and famous...and even outside of California.
Dr. David Benvenuti is working with a new breast simulation company called ILLUSIO to offer women a chance to see what they'll look like with breast implants using its proprietary real-time virtual mirror technology.
ILLUSIO combines a fluid and lifelike 3D virtual image of a patient's breasts with a live image of her face and body to transform a wall mounted TV into a virtual mirror. The proprietary artistic adapters and deformers allow surgeons to easily manipulate virtual models to quickly replicate any real life breast characteristics. Patients can now see themselves and their future bodies in real time. With the ILLUSIO 3D imaging system, she can turn side-to-side and in real-time see herself with all of the size and shape options that her surgeon creates, enabling her to make a quick and confident decision.With our new remote consults, we're able to conduct a full consultation with a patient over our computers. Using ILLUSIO, I am able to listen to my patients and visually show them what they can expect as an outcome based on their wishes and their unique body type.
According to Dr. Benvenuti, there is considerable demand for experienced Board Certified plastic surgeons in most regions of the country. While there is adequate supply in major cosmopolitan cities, when you go to the more rural areas or even smaller urban centers, it's difficult to find a qualified plastic surgeon. "With our new remote consults, we're able to conduct a full consultation with a patient over our computers as if she were standing here in our office. Using ILLUSIO, I am able to listen to my patients and visually show them what they can expect as an outcome based on their wishes and their unique body type," says Dr. Benvenuti. "She will still need to fly in for the procedure, but one trip is typically very manageable," he continued.
ILLUSIO CEO, Ethan Winner says, "We developed our breast simulation system to enable a visual discussion between plastic surgeons and their patients. It's truly wonderful to see Dr. Benvenuti using our technology to advance his abilities to conduct remote consultations. Now women have more options is choosing the right surgeon."
ILLUSIO is the only breast simulation system in the marketplace that enables remote consults. As more and more patients seek highly qualified plastic surgeons, these "e-consults" are the perfect way to bring doctors and patients together.
