Second, it gives Dr. Torkian the opportunity to answer any questions the patient has, and he understands that there may be many. Third, it allows Dr. Torkian to find the best approach for correcting the cosmetic issue. With all these components in place, Dr. Torkian assures his patients of the best possible outcome.
Visually planning your cosmetic result
Constantly striving to deliver the best Beverly Hills rhinoplasty possible, Dr. Torkian takes his consultation one step further. He uses a three dimensional imaging machine called the Vectra®, developed by Canfield Imaging Systems. Rather than using only communication in discussing the result, you and Dr. Torkian can use this device to visually demonstrate how you want your nose to look. Patients can actually customize their own surgery by adjusting the results until it is exactly to their personal specification. With the Canfield Vectra, Dr. Torkian establishes complete understanding between doctor and patient, which is invaluable in the field of cosmetic surgery.
How it works
Patients considering certain facial procedures can benefit from a consultation using the Vectra 3D system that allows them to visualize their new face before actually committing to the procedure. Both the Vectra 3D camera and Sculptor software were developed by Canfield Imaging Systems of Fairfield, NJ—the world's leading provider of medical photography systems.
The process starts with a Vectra 3D session, which produces a three-dimensional photograph of the patient. Then, using Sculptor software, Dr. Torkian is able to simulate the expected results of a variety of aesthetic procedures, including rhinoplasty, chin augmentation and more. Because they are 3D models, these images can be viewed from all angles, in addition to side-by-side comparisons and translucent overlays.
The Vectra system
By using the Vectra, patients can also see the benefits of combining more than one procedure to achieve facial balance and an improved appearance. A variety of combinations can be previewed to see which ones provide the best results. Seeing these images before undergoing surgery can significantly reduce stress about the outcome.
The Vectra system can be used to visualize results for a number of facial cosmetic procedures, including:
How closely does the outcome resemble the Vectra image?
Simply put, very closely. Dr. Torkian’s superior surgical skill and attention to detail allows for result approaching accuracy to your predicted outcome on the Vectra. Knowing this, patients are happier both before and after their surgery. In fact, they report that Dr. Torkian’s use of the Vectra not only provides amazing rhinoplasty results, but also because of the dramatically reduced stress surrounding the procedure.
