If you’re like many people considering rhinoplasty, you’ve likely wondered what your nose would look like after surgery. While the before-and-after photos that many plastic surgeons offer can give you somewhat of an idea on what to expect, advancements in technology have enabled better ways to see the outcome of your procedure. At Mesbahi Plastic Surgery, we offer patients innovative Vectra® 3D Imaging technology to accurately simulate what their results will look like after rhinoplasty.
How does Vectra® 3D Imaging work?
The Vectra® 3D Imaging process can be explained in three easy steps:
Several images of your nose are taken from a variety angles to construct a three-dimensional picture of your face.
Any problems with your nose are identified, and Dr. Mesbahi will recommend how he intends to correct these issues.
Specialized software is applied to create a postoperative visual of your rhinoplasty procedure.
Is there any pain involved with Vectra 3D-Imaging?
No, there is absolutely zero pain associated with the Vectra® 3D Imaging system. Patient’s simply stand in front of the simulator while the Vectra® 3D Imaging system takes pictures and then alters the photos.
Will the Vectra® 3D Imaging system determine if I am a candidate for rhinoplasty?
Although the Vectra® 3D Imaging system will definitely help you see the results you can obtain from a rhinoplasty, a personalized consultation with Dr. Mesbahi will ultimately determine if you are a good candidate.
How close will the simulated results be to the actual outcome?
Although the actual results of your rhinoplasty may vary slightly, the images from the Vectra® 3D Imaging system are typically similar in appearance.
