Dr. Michael Bogdan, a plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic surgery, recently designed and released an application for the iPhone that provides the best method for visualizing surgical results.
Dallas, Texas (March 2012) – Michael A. Bogdan, MD, FACS, a board certified plastic surgeon, recently release an application for the iPhone that contains an enhanced photo gallery. The gallery contains a unique feature such that all photographs can be morphed between “Before” and “After” views. “One of the problems with traditional galleries found on the internet is that they do not work well with some of the subtleties of cosmetic surgery,” said Dr. Bogdan. “Side-by-side photographs are fine for evaluating drastic changes, such as full face lifts or total body makeovers, but it can be hard to appreciate some the fine changes that occur with finesse operations such as nose surgery or eyelid surgery.”
While designing an application for the iPhone as an extension of his website, Dr. Bogdan decided to pursue a solution for the drawback of traditional galleries. He found that the high-resolution screen and processing power of the iPhone could be used to overcome this shortcoming. The iPhone’s processor is powerful enough to smoothly “dissolve” photographs from the “Before” to the “After” view, creating a morphing effect. “The morphing feature of this app makes even subtle changes clearly visible, so people can fully appreciate the impact from the surgery.” To further enhance the galleries, multiple views of every case were included, so the surgical changes can be viewed from all angles.
