Book a Consultation

Choosing to undergo cosmetic surgery is a big decision, and there are many factors that can influence a patient’s decision to move forward. One of these factors is the patient’s goals for the surgery. Oftentimes, cosmetic surgery might be viewed as a magic fix, and patients come with unrealistic expectations. But thanks to technology such as Vectra 3D, patients can see exactly what their cosmetic procedure can achieve. Vectra 3D also allows patients to visualize what the outcome of their procedure might look like, and this is a huge factor in helping to decide whether to move forward with a cosmetic procedure or not.

Visualizing Your Best with Vectra 3D

Cosmetic surgery can transform how you feel about yourself, but sometimes it is difficult to picture what the final results will be like without a visual aid. Vectra 3D is a technology that can be used for a variety of different cosmetic procedures that creates a three-dimensional image of the expected results. Vectra’s three-dimensional image not only gives patients an opportunity to get a sneak preview of their future results after the procedure but also is an amazing tool to make sure that the doctor and patient are on the same page regarding realistic and achievable results. Additionally, it allows patients to see the results of different procedures before going under the knife to ensure that patients decide on the best procedures and treatments for their goals.

Vectra 3D was developed by Canfield Imaging Systems and is an extremely helpful tool for plastic surgeons and patients to communicate. It allows patients to customize their own surgery by adjusting the results shown by the imaging software until it is in line with their goals. This gives an additional level of understanding between doctor and patient.

The Benefits of a 3D Consultation

Vectra 3D is part of many plastic surgeons’ consultation process. The software produces a three-dimensional picture of the patient and enables the plastic surgeon to simulate expected results of procedures such as rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, and more. The three-dimensional aspect allows the photos to be viewed from all angles, which gives patients the best opportunity to visualize what their new face might look like before actually committing to a cosmetic procedure.

If you are thinking about undergoing a cosmetic procedure, your first step is a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Researching which surgeons specialize in the procedures you’re thinking about is the best first step. During the consultation, your doctor will talk with you about your goals for the procedures that you have in mind and keep your expectations realistic.

During a consultation, it should be your goal to learn as much about the procedure as possible including what kind of results to expect. Technology such as Vectra 3D closes any communication gaps and barriers between plastic surgeon and patient and gives patients a three-dimensional picture of the results to come.
