When thinking about cosmetic surgery, one of the biggest questions patients have is “How will I look after the surgery?” In patient consultations, our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Philip Barnsley uses VECTRA 3D Imaging System to provide a preview of potential results of your face or body enhancements. This approach minimizes uncertainty, empowering you to make informed decisions with confidence. While Before & After photos of other patients serve as a helpful reference, experiencing a personalized preview of your potential results on the screen is unparalleled.
What is VECTRA?
VECTRA imaging is a three-dimensional (3D) imaging system that we use to get a detailed and accurate visual representation of a patient’s face or body.
First, we capture high-resolution images from different angles and then combine these images to create an accurate 3D soft tissue model. The soft tissue models have exact measurements and even skin topography of the patient.
This cutting-edge technology allows for a comprehensive analysis of the patient’s anatomy and makes it easier to visualize treatment results. Dr. Barnsley is able to adjust the 3D model of the patient’s face and body to show various treatment options, demonstrating in real-time what the patient might look like as a result of a facelift, eyelid surgery, breast implants of different sizes, liposuction, and more.
VECTRA 3D imaging offers a sophisticated and interactive way for Dr. Barnsley and patients to collaborate in achieving the desired aesthetic outcomes.
