Technology allows patients to preview aesthetic procedures



PeaceHealth Medical Group can now offer patients a photographic preview of how they’ll look with aesthetic procedures.

The medical group is using three dimensional photography and new software to show patients what they’ll look like after breast augmentation, facial procedures and more.

The group uses the VECTRA 3D camera and Sculptor software to produce expected results of surgery.

“My patients absolutely love this,” said Dr. Allen Gabriel, chief of plastic surgery at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, who helped develop the software. “I can rotate their picture to any viewpoint and they can really examine the desired result. We can make changes here and there and agree on a final look in advance, and this truly helps them make a decision.”
