This does not mean that he has begun to print noses for his clientele; instead, he utilizes 3D printing technology to give patients a more realistic and accurate view of what they would look like post-surgery. As dr. Avşar explained, he has always seen a very close relationship between design and cosmetic surgery. He considers himself somewhat of an artist as he crafts appearances, and made clay moulds of patients faces in the past to help them get an understanding of what the surgery would change. This process was, however, time-consuming and he was never quite satisfied with the results.
After seeing a demonstration of a 3D printing and scanning technology, Avşar realised that this aspect of his work could greatly benefit from 3D printing. It now allows him, or so he argues, to create realistic before and after images for his patients. And while this would have to be verified, Avşar believes he is the only aesthetic plastic surgeon in the world currently employing this technology to improve his services.
