We are excited to now introduce the Vectra Face Sculptor, which is a facial surgery simulator. Our Coco Ruby clinicians have been using the Reveal facial camera to detect imperfections in our non-surgical patients, like pigmentation, sun damage and capillary damage. This helps them to appropriately select which treatment is most suited to their patients’ needs and gives them a visual tool to assist in their consultation process and communication with the patient.
The Vectra Face Sculptor
The Vectra Face Sculptor is now allowing our facial surgeons to demonstrate to patients the outcome of Rhinoplasty, Face Lifts, Neck Lifts and Chin Augmentation. The Vectra Face Sculptor provides a visual pre-operative assessment of the face with automated measurements of the facial features and contours.
As a highly experienced team here at Coco Ruby Plastic Surgery, we feel that the new Vectra Face Sculptor will really benefit our facial surgery patients in making an informed decision about their procedure, with an understanding of their expected results.
Procedures like Rhinoplasty and Face Lifts are often procedures that patients think about for a long time because they have concerns about their final outcome. We now have a visual tool to demonstrate and communicate to the patient the outcome we believe they will achieve from their 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 surgical changes. Note these 3D imaging devices and software systems are tools only – not predictive technology. But they can help patients visualise their 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 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 Tip Rhinoplasty, the patient should always keep in mind that the experience, training, and credentials have greater importance than the price tag. Special deals, fixed prices, and big discounts should raise a red flag. Usually, those kinds of procedures lead to another disappointing result and in the end line cost more and produce more stress, pain, take more time, and discomfort than one procedure conducted by the professional and experienced surgeon. There are 2 different types of Consultations you can have when considering a nose job

Always Choose a qualified, experienced, expert for Plastic Surgery
Be sure to find out if your surgeon is FRACS qualified and has proven and relevant surgical experience.
Don’t choose someone who studied a different area of medicine as they are unlikely to have the same rigorous surgical training required to become recognized as a Specialist in Plastic, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Look for members of FRACS, ASPS, ASAPS or ISAPS as some of the Qualifications of your Surgeon. Our Surgeons operate in an accredited hospital, not in the back-room of a clinic.
