Recent Article on 3-D Printing Highlights the Future of Custom Medical Solutions Using the Technology, says Beverly Hills Physicians
Date:8/31/2015

In an article published August 24th on Healio, the author examined a journal article from the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Global Open Journal that discusses the future of 3-D printing technology as it relates to the field of medicine in general. The article discussed how, in the future, customized implants, prosthetics, and other 3-D printed tools could be used to aid in the treatment of patients around the world. Los Angeles medical group Beverly Hills Physicians, which has experience treating patients for both medical and cosmetic procedures, notes that this brings up an interesting discussion of where 3-D printing could be helpful when applied to the practice of plastic surgery. They note that while there are certain areas that may not need to rely on the advantages that 3-D printing can offer, other procedures could specifically benefit from customized solutions, particularly in the area of predictive modeling.

Beverly Hills Physicians notes that, in some regards, the use of 3-D printing for cosmetic applications is already here. They point to a company called MirrorMe3d that works to print 3-D models of a patient’s face to show them exactly what they may look like after a cosmetic procedure. With certain procedures, BHP notes, this imaging technology is bound to be more accurate than others. They explain that, in the case of procedures such as rhinoplasties, where subcutaneous features are altered, or implants, where new structures are introduced into the body, it is easier to see how things might look afterwards by knowing the shape and scale of the alterations. This is one of the reasons, they note, why 3-D modeling is being used with procedures involving the face, which has a much more unique topography compared to other body parts.

Beverly Hills Physicians also notes that, even if 3-D printing technology advances to much higher levels, there are certain procedures, such as a tummy tuck, that likely wouldn’t implement the technology. A tummy tuck, BHP explains, is meant to reduce excess or sagging skin and flatten out the midsection. Because the goal is a flat stomach, the ability to accurately print depth is not something that would be necessary in that situation.

However, Beverly Hills Physicians notes that, even with procedures where 3-D printing may not be used, it is still important for patients to have a deep understanding of their procedure and an accurate set of expectations for the outcome. This means going to a surgeon who has tremendous experience with the procedure that he or she is tasked with performing, and the ability to properly convey expectations to the patient. Beverly Hills Physicians notes that patients can first get to know their surgeon’s abilities by scheduling a free initial consultation for any of their cosmetic procedure.
