Vectra 3D Imaging
When you’re considering facial cosmetic surgery, it can feel challenging to picture your new look. Using Vectra 3D Imaging as part of the consultation process helps take the element of uncertainty out of your final result, so you feel confident about moving forward with your procedure.
At The Natural Result / Center for Aesthetic Artistry, we feel that Vectra 3D Imaging not only improves communication between surgeon and patient, but also represents one of the most cutting-edge technological advancements in the field.

The Technology of 3D Imaging
The way 3D imaging works is very straightforward. First, we take digital photos of your face using the Vectra camera. Those pictures are then adapted into a three-dimensional format to create new images that match your natural features.
Next, simulation software is used to adjust the images according to the procedure you’re considering and other factors. If having rhinoplasty, for example, you may feel unsure whether you’d be happy simply removing the bump from the bridge of your nose, or if you want a more involved level of correction. Vectra 3D imaging allows you to look at both options so you can decide which result you like better before surgery ever begins.
Note that this is not a before and after image, but a 3D simulation created before surgery to help the patient visualize her results.
How 3D Imaging Helps
While the accurate visual representation that’s enabled by using 3D imaging technology is a clear benefit, the benefits of improved communication between patient and surgeon are equally invaluable. Often, the terms that are used to describe the outcome of your facial sculpting procedures are subjective ones like “natural,” which can create a language barrier during your consultation.
When a patient and surgeon are looking at 3D images together, they share a common ground that gives them a more solid starting place for discussing results in an objective way. This gives your surgeon a better idea of his patients’ cosmetic goals, while at the same time helping patients better understand all the important technical details that go into deciding how to best approach your upcoming surgery.
The Benefits of 3D
An added benefit of incorporating 3D imaging as part of your rhinoplasty or chin implant surgery from the beginning is that any concerns over needing revision surgery may be minimized. Having a visual guide in place before you set foot in the operating room can ease any concerns you may have over getting the result you’d like to see the first time around.
