Twenty three-year-old Tianna has been teased about her nose throughout her life. When she opted for a rhinoplasty procedure, she received more reassurance that she would like the look of her new noes structure thanks to a new 3D prototype which let her see her new nose before the surgery.
Kian Karimi, M.D., oversees the Los Angeles-based facial plastic surgery practice that offered Tianna a 3D preview of what her rhinoplasty results would look like before her procedure. Years of education led Karimi to create an advanced technique for his esthetic facial surgery procedures. Until recently, surgeons would draw a 2D image as a reference to use throughout their procedures. However, Karimi has increased accuracy with a 3D computer image, and through modeling technology was able to create an actual 3D model of the nose. The 3D plastic model helps surgeons visualize their desired outcome and ensures better results and an easier procedure for both the patient and the surgeon.
