Vectra 3D Imaging
The Plastic Surgery Institute at SIU has enjoyed incorporating use of the Vectra 3D imaging system into its patient consultations. Patients appreciate previewing their results prior to actual surgery. Currently, SIU is the only plastic surgery office to offer this service in Central Illinois.
According to Dr. Nicole Sommer, director of the Cosmetic Center at SIU, “I’ve been extremely pleased with how the real results match up to the images created by the Vectra. I enjoy meeting with my patients and, using a patient’s preoperative photos, talk through their goals right in front of them. It’s become an invaluable tool in my cosmetic practice.”
When you arrive for your consultation, a professional photographer captures your image with the Vectra 3D imaging system. It’s simple and takes only a few minutes. The system uses 6 cameras to simultaneously take your photo from multiple angles. The software then takes these 6 photos and synchronizes them together to make a virtual 3 dimensional reconstruction of your face, body or breasts.
Working with your physicians, you can simulate procedures and final results in real time.
