The future of plastic surgery: How AI can shape patient care

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0 | June 10th, 2024

Imagine a plastic surgery experience as smooth as a sci-fi film! Thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), this could soon be a reality.

For instance, consider how AI could help surgeons create super-accurate surgical plans by looking at 3D images of your body. This could lead to better outcomes for patients, who could see a realistic preview before the operation even begins. It’s like being able to try on your new look before making a final decision! And the magic doesn’t stop there. After surgery, AI-powered apps could keep an eye on your recovery and give you personalised tips. This could make healing much faster and easier.

In addition, AI-powered virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) are being developed to train surgeons, offering immersive simulations that improve their skills and precision. These technologies have the potential to improve the entire field of plastic surgery and ensure that patients receive the best possible care.

But the reality today is a little different. To put such a brilliant vision of the future into practice, we have to wait at least a few years. Everything has to be developed, reviewed and tested. Even after all this, there’s still no guarantee from the surgeo’s side. Every patient is different, every body and healing process is different. Due to this fact, everything described above will be a possibility, not a requirement.

On the other hand, we also don’t want to put progress to sleep. At Royal Medical, we’re excited to learn about these new tools so that we can provide the best possible care for our patients in the future. With AI, plastic surgery is slowly becoming safer, more precise and more effective, ensuring that you leave feeling your best!
