What if I told you that you could see your post operative result before you even have surgery? That’s right! With a new, cutting edge 3D imaging system, called Crisalix, seeing yourself before and after cosmetic surgery is actually a possibility. And what’s even better, you will be able use this new technology from the privacy of our office. Dr. Jejurikar and his staff are currently being trained how to use this innovative program, and will be implementing it into all of our personal consultations in the coming weeks.
But, what exactly is Crisalix? Crisalix is a unique computer software that was created in 2009. Its mission is to allow any patient considering cosmetic surgery to actually visualize their dream by offering online 3D simulations for any aesthetic and cosmetic procedure. Originally based on using uploaded photographs, it now utilizes a high tech scanning camera. This scanner transforms real time images into a virtual 3D image of you. Once the images are converted into 3D, we are then able to simulate any number of procedures that we offer in our practice, such as breast augmentations, rhinoplasty, Brazilian butt lift, tummy tuck, and many more.
Let’s say you’re interested in a breast augmentation. We would scan images of you into the 3D imaging system to create a virtual model of your actual body. Dr. Jejurikar would then work together with you and choose implants from a catalog of online implants that fit the dimensions of your body the best. Once you choose a size, the image is directly enhanced on your virtual body! You can see yourself in clothes, out of clothes (wink), and at a variety of different sizes! It allows you to compare side-by-side images of you both before and after, so you can visualize the amazing change right before your eyes.
This incredibly innovative technology is also commonly used for rhinoplasty procedures as well. Dr. Jejurikar will be able to shape and refine the areas of your nose that you find most concerning. Within moments, the new you is revealed!
With Crisalix 3D imaging systems, your transformation can happen right before your eyes and Dr. Jejurikar can help make that happen! With a personalized consultation, together you can determine what your desired look is, and what the safest and best way is to achieve your results.

It has become more common for women to wait until later in life before beginning a family. With higher education and embarking on promising careers, women in their 20’s and 30’s are becoming more financially stable, making cosmetic surgery a more feasible option. One of the most common sought after procedures today is breast augmentation. But the burning question still lingers: “Should I have a breast augmentation before I have a child and breastfeed?”
So, when exactly is the “right time” to have breast augmentation?
The good news is, breast implants in no way interfere with your ability to get pregnant or breast feed. We do know, however, that with pregnancy your breasts do undergo changes. From the hormones, weight gain, and milk production, pregnancy and breastfeeding affects each woman differently. Some women have tremendous changes in breast shape and size, and some have almost none. Post pregnancy, some women will lose most of their breast volume after breastfeeding, others will develop loose skin, while still others may maintain a larger breast volume post pregnancy. It is impossible to predict beforehand how much your breasts will change. And it is equally impossible to know how much they will be able to return to their pre-pregnancy state.
When choosing to pursue surgery, timing is everything. If you’re planning to start a family in the short months following your augmentation, it may be wiser to wait! It would be a pity for you to spend the time and money to achieve the perfect results, only to have them change with pregnancy. There is no guarantee they will return to your post operative results. That being said, you certainly aren’t required to wait if you don’t want to wait. Should you opt to have your augmentation and after your pregnancy you are left with sagging skin, a breast lift is always a reasonable solution to get your perky breasts back.
If, on the other hand, you have no immediate plans for starting a family then surgery can be a great option! It is widely agreed upon that safety is not a deterring issue when having a breast augmentation before a family.
The most important thing you can do when considering breast augmentation is finding a board certified plastic surgeon and having an open discussion about your goals and future plans. Your surgeon can help guide you in determining what timing is just right for you and your needs. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to enjoy your results before going through all the changes associated with pregnancy.
