A new app shows pre-op boob job patients see what their enlarged breasts will look like before going under the knife.
The ‘augmented reality’ program creates 3D boobs and superimposes them over the woman’s body, helping them pick out the most fitting size and shape for their implants.
Patients can move side to side and see on a big screen what their new breasts would look like from every angle, while the surgeon changes the virtual boobs on a hand-held tablet.
Illusio was designed to allow women to make a better judgement on how big they want their new chest to look like – avoiding disappointment and expensive and traumatic corrective ops.
The app has a number of options, including one allowing the digital breasts to adjusted in real-time as the patient inspects the moving image of herself with her proposed implants.
