Plastic surgeon Dr Paul LoVerme has introduced a revolutionary new 3D treatment for people who want to halt the signs of aging using dermal fillers; the Vectra 3D system allows the patient to see a full picture of the outcome and to make adjustments to meet their pre-surgery goals. Dr LoVerme said that the increased demand for such procedures meant surgeons were always looking for new ways to treat their patients successfully; ‘It is the responsibility of the surgeon to establish realistic treatment goals and manage patient expectations. A natural looking result where the patient looks more youthful and refreshed is key.’
Dr LoVerme went on to praise the Vectra 3D technology for giving him a more accurate determination of the amount of filler required; he said ‘Using a series of six specialised camera lenses, strobes, and the most sophisticated software, we can now capture images of facial features and measure specifically how much volume is needed to create the desired result.’
The new system generates a 3D mould of the patients face that gives the surgeon access to the contours of the face that are below the outer layers of skin, which means they can produce an individually tailored result according to the information provided on-screen. The New Jersey surgeon was confident that the technology would become more widely used after practitioners become familiar with it and see that it is highly accurate – 150 surgeons currently use Vectra 3D in the US.
