3D Imaging Helps Cosmetic Surgery Patients Visualize Results
Dr. Benjamin Schlechter, a breast augmentation surgeon in the Lancaster, PA, area, is now offering innovative 3D imaging technology so his patients can be more clear in their cosmetic surgery expectations.
Wyomissing, Pennsylvania (February 2012) – Dr. Benjamin Schlechter who specializes in breast augmentation in the Lancaster, PA, area, is now offering Vectra® 3D imaging for his plastic surgery patients. This technology helps patients ease their uncertainty prior to a procedure by using digital imaging to create pictures of potential results.
“I’m always looking for ways to improve the surgical process and methods for helping women and men feel more comfortable with a proposed procedure,” Dr. Schlechter says. “Vectra 3D imaging helps patients visualize what they may look like after recovering from plastic surgery procedures. This creates a more efficient consultation process and minimizes the guesswork associated with choosing the most effective procedure.”
Using three-dimensional pictures of a patient’s physical features, Vectra 3D imaging is able to capture small details to create an accurate digital image. Dr. Schlechter then uploads the image into Sculptor™ software, where he is able to make small adjustments for his patients near Allentown. Liposuction and other cosmetic procedures can be improved through this technology.
“Vectra 3D imaging enables me to create images of what patients could look like after a procedure,” says Dr. Schlechter. “Once a patient looks at the potential results, she or he is able to give feedback. From there, I can make minor adjustments to the plan to create the desired results. This back-and-forth discussion helps patients visualize how they can enhance their appearances, and it assists me by creating a more accurate picture of their likes and dislikes.”
Dr. Schlechter explains that most of the uneasiness from patients prior to surgery comes from a fear that their plastic surgeons in the Lancaster, PA, area don’t fully understand their desired results. Vectra 3D imaging helps relieve this fear by creating digital images that both the patient and the surgeon can see and agree on.
“Vectra 3D imaging is a great way for patients to create a more accurate picture of their potential results,” Dr. Schlechter says. “Although this software is extremely advanced, it should be noted that variations in results can still occur. With this information in mind, patients can use this technology to feel more comfortable with surgery and more assured about getting beautiful and natural looking results.”
