Brand New “Aesthetic Studio” 3D System

Brand New “Aesthetic Studio” 3D System

We are excited to announce our new “Aesthetic Studio” 3D system. We have combined the innovative Microsoft Surface Studio and Quantificare 3D Software with our own graphics to develop a unique system to analyze skin and facial contours, image surgical and non-surgical procedures, and measure our outcomes precisely. This is the single most useful communication and analysis tool I have seen in my many decades of performing facial plastic surgery. Dr. Patel and I are pleased to launch this program by providing complimentary analysis sessions with the Aesthetic Studio to introduce it to our patients and friends. Each session will take about 30 minutes and will provide a skin analysis and discussion of the 3D image. We would like to thank our friends at Microsoft for facilitating the early adaption of their Surface Studio and Quantificare for their support with developing our program.

The Surface Studio was developed for artists and designers to turn their desks into a Studio. It was specifically designed for the creative process. The 28” PixelSense™ Display proivdes a huge canvas for all kinds of work. We can use it upright, or draw on it like a drafting table. The images must be seen to be appreciated.

The 3D LifeViz MiniTM system was developed by Quantificare, a French company, primarily for research in dermatology and plastic surgery. An extremely accurate but portable camera captures the 3D image which can then be viewed, analyzed, and used to simulate various treatments.

Its 3D SkinCare module enables us to evaluate and analyze the skin, generate a personalized, printed report and ultimately to enhance care and communication with our patients.

The 3D Face Shaper module allows us to guide patient aesthetic treatment choices and simulate surgical and non-surgical changes.

We can also measure changes in volume, skin texture, color, and more following our aesthetic treatments. These help us tailor our treatments to each patient and make changes as needed to provide the best results. By measuring our outcomes precisely, we can continue to improve our techniques over time.

The drawing capabilities of studio allow us in a very natural way to sketch surgical options and how we would approach a specific operation for the individual patient. We can work with their photographs or from our own graphical templates designed by our graphic artist Kate Sweeney. Kate has worked on a number of our books and articles so she understands the anatomy, as well as the aesthetic needs.

Facial Plastic Surgery is both an art and a craft. The Aesthetic Studio provides a canvas on which we can design, communicate, be creative, and really see each patient’s face.

Important Notice

We fully recognize the growing concern and impact of COVID-19 on our workforces and communities.

In keeping with our mission, The Larrabee Center is recognizing the following initiatives in light of information provided by the CDC and state government.

In an effort to reduce the spread of the virus, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the surgery and aesthetics center until Monday, April 6th, 2020 effective immediately. This preventative measure aims to further our commitment to public health and social responsibility.
