Using Computer Imaging to See Results Before They Happen2012 - 9, imaging photos_228 166

Computer imaging is one of the most important tools that we, as plastic surgeons, have. It allows our staff to show you what the procedure you are asking for will result in. This means that by using computer imaging, we are letting you glimpse the possible future you!

What Are the Advantages of Computer Imaging?IMG_3451 250

By using a computer imager during initial consultations, both the client and surgeon can visually see what the end result of the requested procedure might be. They can then discuss what the client wants and develop a plan to get from the starting point to the desired end.

How Does Computer Imaging work?IMG_3455 250

In computer imaging, we obtain a digital image of the patient’s anatomy to be changed. The nurse modifies and manipulates the body’s features to show the expected result of a prospective surgical procedure.

How Long Does Computer Imaging in Take?IMG_3457 250

When imaging first came out it was a lengthy process, but now that computer processor speeds have increased and memory sizes have expanded, it is a very quick process. The actual imaging takes less than ten minutes, and we can build the profile with your assistance. Once the profile is complete, the surgeon will begin your consult.

Will I Look Like My Computer Image?

When imaging first started, this was a major concern for most patients. They were not convinced that the image that was given to them onscreen would be the real-world results. We now have thousands of before and after images from people who have used computer imaging and the success rate is phenomenal. One look into our database will assure you that what you see is what you get, when you contract with us for a computer imaging and plastic surgery package.
