If “a picture is worth a thousand words” when trying to determine if a certain plastic surgery procedure is right for you, then how valuable is a simulation of your results in 3D? West County Plastic Surgeons of Washington University now offers the VECTRA 3-D imaging system for cosmetic surgery imaging in Saint Louis.
The VECTRA 3-D system can be used to capture a 180-degree picture of your face, breasts or torso. A computer program is then used to create a picture of your current form. You will then work with your board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Myckatyn or Dr. Tenenbaum to manipulate the image and simulate what your cosmetic surgery procedure results may look like. The VECTRA 3-D system will allow you to view these images from a variety of angles, and side-by-side to compare them with your current appearance. This is a powerful way of providing visual answers to many of your questions about how a cosmetic surgery procedure may look on you.

SAINT LOUIS RHINOPLASTY (NOSE SURGERY) AND VECTRA 3-D
Virtual 3-D pictures of your nose can be manipulated to show you what a rhinoplasty – or nose-reshaping surgery – may look like. With the help of your board-certified plastic surgeon, the anatomic features of your nose can be measured and changed to simulate the effects of rhinoplasty surgery for you. In addition, when appropriate, the VECTRA 3-D can be used to show you the additional benefits of a chin implant, facelift surgery fillers, or fat grafting on your facial profile.
