Founded by New York plastic surgeon Carrie Stern, MirrorMe3D printing service allows for doctors to show their patients what they will look like after the procedure in a more realistic way, compared to 3D simulation on screen.
June 16, 2015: 3D prints of remodelled faces, breasts or other body parts take about two weeks to process and cost between $ 60 and $ 300 depending on their size and complexity.
MirrorMe3D has teamed up with crisalix, a web-based 3D imaging tool for cosmetic surgery, for their service.

The New York-based startup is now using 3D Systems’ software and 3D printers to present patients with a life-like physical representation of their potential surgical outcome. The models are prepared using Geomagic software before 3D printed in full colour on the ProJet 660 and delivered to the surgeon’s office.
“MirrorMe3D is a perfect example of how medical professionals today are combining 3D software tools and 3D printing in order to enhance their services and provide more personalized care,” said Kevin McAlea, Chief Operating Officer, Healthcare, 3DS. “From virtual surgical planning and simulation to 3D printed models, instruments and implants, our digital thread is powering the future of patient-specific healthcare.”
