Planning a Better Cosmetic Surgery with 3D Imaging

If you’re considering a cosmetic surgery procedure, you have a vision in your head of what you want to look like. We can help make that vision real with advanced 3D computer imaging available at our practice. In real time, we can provide a simulation of post-surgical expectations and adjust features of the three-dimensional rendering based on your input.
Live, Detailed Imaging
Cosmetic surgery imaging using Vectra 3D technology allows Dr. Pyle to capture a detailed representation of your own body and display it on a computer screen, giving you the opportunity to see your post-operative appearance with a variety of possible adjustments. This three-dimensional, virtual test drive of how you can look after surgery allows you to work along with your surgeon to decide what will best complement your natural proportions.
3D imaging is especially useful for achieving better breast augmentation results, as it helps to take some of the guesswork out of what size implants to choose. Using sizers inserted into the bra can give a rough impression of how implants may look, but this method is far from precise. In a 3D imaging consultation, you and your surgical team can work together to see how different implant volumes will look on an accurate rendering of your body. This allows you to feel more confident about your implant size before surgery, which in turn helps you feel happier with your final results.
