Dr. Kotlus saw a need for a tool that helps cosmetic surgeons evaluate patients for upper eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) and he created it using a 3d printer.  It is called the eyelid wand and it is available on a website called shapeways.com.  Other surgeons have already purchased their own 3d printed copy of the instrument to use with their own patients.
