Everyone has wondered if certain fortune tellers really have the stuff. Can they really see the future?
You can at Naples Cosmetic Surgery Center…thanks to our Vectra® 3D computer imaging system. This system allows our patients to accurately visualize the results of their procedure long before even putting on a surgical gown.
The Vectra® 3D system can be used to help patients visualize the results of a variety of procedures with Dr. Turk: breast augmentation, body contouring, breast lift, chin augmentation, rhinoplasty, facelift, and neck lift. Our Vectra® 3D system allows our patients to be much more assured in what their results will look like, eliminating much of the stress heading into surgery.
This is how Vectra works. We have you stand in front of the camera system so that three-dimensional photographs of the target area can be taken. These images are then pieced together with the advanced Sculptor™ software in the system to create a computer-generated 3D model of the patient’s face, breast, or body. These images can then be customized and viewed from all sorts of angles.
Once we have the 3D model, we can then input different changes that could be made with your potential surgery. For instance, you can see how different size breast implants will look on the 3D model of your body. Or you can see what narrowing the bridge of your nose will look like. Basically anything we could do through surgery you can see through these computer-generated models.
The Vectra® 3D camera
For Dr. Turk to capture the patient’s 3D image, more than one image is needed. Using multiple cameras, the Vectra® 3D technology takes a number of pictures simultaneously from several different points of view. These images are then merged to build a three-dimensional virtual model of the patient. The system accurately recreates the patient before any procedure is performed.
The Vectra® 3D simulation is the key
From there the software in the Vectra® 3D system takes over. The software creates the “after” image of the patient, basing it upon the specifics of the patient’s actual body taken in the 3D image. Once the parameters are entered — say, breast augmentation from an A to a C cup size — the software builds the simulation. But this initial simulation isn’t the end. At this point, Dr. Turk can use simulated sculpting tools to change the size, shape, and position of the treatment area. Depending on the procedure, facial features can be smoothed, tightened, and resized; breasts can be made larger, lifted, and shaped to the patient’s preference. This simulation can then guide Dr. Turk when he prepares for and performs the actual surgery.
