Fear of the future can prevent many people from making some of the best decisions of their lives. They simply do not want to face the risks, despite the potential benefits. The same is true of cosmetic surgery. Men and women who have been thinking about making a beneficial and life-changing decision hesitate because they are not sure exactly what they want for their bodies, or they aren’t sure the doctor will know either. Thankfully, during a plastic surgery consultation, doctors and patients now have the ability to lift the veil and peer into the future. It all starts with Vectra® 3D imaging.
What is Vectra 3D Imaging?
Vectra 3D imaging creates a 3-D image of the body, enabling a patient to see how his or her body looks now and how it could look in the future. It is a private and quick portion of a plastic surgery consultation and greatly enhances both the surgeon and patient’s planning abilities. A 3-D camera will take pictures of the patient’s body and create a three-dimensional image that can be modified according to the desired procedure and result. Essentially, it creates a changeable model of the patient’s body.
How Can Vectra 3D Imaging Help?
During the consultation, the surgeon is able to use Vectra 3D imaging to project what the body will look like after a plastic surgery procedure is completed. The patient can decide how they want his or her body to look and, along with the plastic surgeon, decide what is the best procedure to achieve that result. The patient and surgeon are able to come to an understanding faster when they can both see how the body should look after the procedure is finished. This also removes much of the fear that patients may have if they are concerned about what exactly will happen. They can finish their consultations knowing that the surgeon knows what they want, and how they want it to be done.
