Facial 3D Imaging at Coco Ruby Melbourne
We are excited to now introduce the Vectra Face Sculptor, which is a facial surgery simulator. This Facial 3D Imaging is used as a planning tool to see what can potentially be attained through facial surgery.
Our Coco Ruby dermal clinicians also use the Reveal facial camera to detect facial skin imperfections in our non-surgical patients. For example; pigmentation, sun and capillary damage. This helps appropriately select the treatment that is most suitable for patients’ needs. It also gives them a visual tool to assist in their consultation process and patient communication.

The Vectra Face Sculptor
The Vectra Face Sculptor allow our facial surgeons to demonstrate the potential outcome of Rhinoplasty, Face Lifts, Neck Lifts and Chin Augmentation. The machine provides a visual pre-operative assessment of the face with automated measurements of the facial features and contours.
Our highly experienced team here at Coco Ruby Plastic Surgery, feel that the Vectra Face Sculptor offers extra value to our facial surgery patients. This is because it can help patients not only make an informed decision about their procedure but it may also give them an idea about what their results may look like.
Procedures like Rhinoplasty and Face Lifts are often procedures that patients think about for a long time. This is because they have concerns about their final outcome. Now we have the 3D imaging tool to demonstrate and communicate to the patient the outcome we believe they may achieve from their facial surgery.
Note these 3D imaging devices and software systems are tools only – not predictive technology. However, they may be used as an aid to help patients visualise potential results.
The decision to have any form of facial surgery is a difficult one. Having an additional communication tool to visually explain a patients’ possible outcome may make their consultation process easier.

Always choose a qualified & experienced surgeon for Plastic Surgery
Be sure to find out if your surgeon is FRACS (Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons) qualified and has proven and relevant surgical experience.
Don’t choose someone who studied a different area of medicine. They are unlikely to have the surgical training required to be recognised as a Specialist in Plastic, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgeon.
Coco Ruby is an Australia-wide Specialist Plastic Surgeons Group, with the appropriate qualifications and members of recognised associations. Look for members of
- FRACS – Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons
- ASPS – Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons
- ASAPS – Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons
- Or, ISAPS – International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
These are just examples of some of the Qualifications a Plastic Surgeon should have. Our Surgeons operate in an accredited hospital, not in the back room of a clinic.
