Axis Three, a provider of surgical simulation tools for the cosmetic surgery industry, is now offering Portrait 3D – Breast, described as the world’s first simulation software based on physics-driven tissue typing.

The recent launch represents the fifth generation of the Portrait 3D product.

"Portrait 3D, with its new physics-based algorithm, is a huge advance in breast imaging," said Dr. William Adams Jr. to Medical News Today. "The program provides the surgeon with a comprehensive consultation tool that allows the patient to better understand many aspects of breast surgery. In addition, for the first time in the history of breast augmentation, patients have something with a scientific basis to provide a three dimensional glimpse of what they actually may look like post-operatively."

Axis Three’s Tissue Behavior Simulation (TBS) technology combines breast and tissue-type characterizations with specific implants from implant manufacturers catalogues. The unique algorithms enable surgeons to use the patient’s specific body attributes, such as their parenchyma and skin elasticity, when simulating various procedures.

Portrait 3D – Face product, which will simulate surgical and non-surgical face procedures, will be beta tested and expected to launch in then near future..

Axis Three will be exhibiting at the 88th Annual Meeting and Aesthetic Symposium of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons on March 21-25, 2009 at the Westin Mission Hills Resort in Rancho Mirage, California.
