VECTRA 3D: 3D Plastic Surgery Previews
Who doubts that every single patient has the same agonizing question when considering plastic surgery: “How will i look after the procedure”? We’ve already published articles in the past regarding 3D Simulation systems that answer this exact question (read this for more info).
Now, the innovative VECTRA 3D system can give a pretty persuasive answer! This 3D digital imaging system gives patients a good image of the post breast and nose surgery results by capturing three dimensional image of the patient! Then the plastic surgeon manipulates this 3D image to simulate the final results! The doctors of Stratis Gayner plastic surgery are fully aware of the huge demand on a “preview-system” and this is why they included VECTRA 3D in their services!
But how the whole thing works? VECTRA 3D takes a digital 3D photograph of the patient! Then the surgeon edits the photo to simulate the result of the upcoming surgery! Next step is a consultation with the patient where the Preview images are available! The patient can ask for improvements or corrections according to the preview image. This actually brings the patient consultation to another, much more essential level!
The Facial Specialist, Dr. Gayner mentions: “It’s really a leap ahead in treatment planning,” and adds “Before now, we could explain the results of a procedure or show patients before-and-after photos of other people, but it was still difficult sometimes for patients to imagine how they’ll look after surgery.”
Dr. Stratis, the Body Specialist of Stratis Gayner Plastic Surgery says: “As the cliche goes, a picture is worth a thousand words,” and adds “I can try to describe what I’m going to do and how that will affect the appearance of the body in as many ways as possible, but that can never compare to an image. I can immediately bring the patient up to speed with a series of digitally rendered photos, and I can more clearly understand exactly what the patient is looking to achieve.”
