3D Imaging for Face, Chin, Cheek and Nose Surgery


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 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

vectra imaging machine

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 benefits our facial surgery patients. This is because it can help patients not only make an informed decision about their procedure but it can also give them an idea about what their results will 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 will achieve from their facial surgery.

The Vectra Face Sculptor imaging technology at our clinic along with Crisolix 3D imaging is used as a planning tool to see what may be attained with facial surgery. Note these 3D imaging devices and software systems are tools only – not predictive technology. However, they can 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’ outcome should make their consultation process easier. And, it should give them a better understanding of their expectations.


Choosing the Best Nose Surgeon in Sydney or Melbourne

When choosing the right plastic surgeon for Nose or Face Surgery you should always keep in mind that the experience, training, and credentials are more important than;

  • the price tag
  • Special deals
  • big discounts

All of the above should raise a red flag. Usually, those kinds of procedures lead to a disappointing result and in the end not only cost more money but also cause more stress, pain, take more time, and discomfort than one procedure done by a professional, experienced surgeon.

There are 2 different types of Consultations you can have when considering a nose job or other facial surgery.
