Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Fernau offers patients the unique opportunity to "try on" their new look prior to undergoing a cosmetic procedure. Whether you want to see what your breast enhancement could look like, or how dramatic a facelift could appear, Vectra 3D Imaging offers patients the exciting opportunity to see what their visual result may look like before actual surgery. Dr. Fernau is known for his patience and knowledge during the initial consultation, and he takes the necessary time and a personalized approach with each patient so that each question is answered thoroughly. With the help of the Vectra 3D system, patients often find themselves more confident in the decision-making process.
Our Vectra 3D simulation station is used during many of our consultations. The projected outcome from a surgery is created for the patient to see through a set of high-resolution 3D images that are captured. The system then displays the “after surgery” effects onto a screen for the patient and Dr. Fernau to discuss.
The Canfield Vectra Imaging System contains a photograph station and a realistic 3D simulation using Sculpting Software®. Vectra’s Face Sculptor®, Breast Sculptor®, and the Body Sculptor® software contains extensive assessment tools and high-resolution cameras for optimal viewing clarity. Dr. Fernau uses the Vectra system during consultations for procedures such as a facelift, breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, rhinoplasty, and much more.

"Dr. Fernau and his staff are so wonderful! From the moment you walk in the front door you’re greeted immediately by their pleasant receptionist who is very knowledgeable about all the services they offer. Dr. Fernau gave my lips a beautiful shape and plump. They didn’t over swell or bruise like I have had happen in the past when I’ve had them done elsewhere. They offer reasonable prices for amazing work! I definitely will be going back for all my injections"- E.S. / Google / Feb 14, 2020

How it Works
Vectra 3D Imaging is quick, insightful, and remarkably simple. Here is how Vectra 3D Imaging works:
- During the initial consultation, the patient is guided through a series of pictures that will be taken using Vectra’s high-resolution cameras
- Dr. Fernau will review the images with the patient to go over anatomy, procedure possibilities, and anticipated results. The patient will have the opportunity to “try on” numerous looks.
- Both parties will work together to develop a desired outcome. Many patients feel more confident walking into surgery following this process with a better understanding of the anticipated results.
How Realistic are the Results?
Actual surgery results will be very close to what the Vectra 3D Imaging predicts. Most patients are very impressed by the similarity between the physical outcome and the digital simulation.
Will This Improve the Surgery?
Vectra 3D Imaging permits both our team and the patient to align surgical hopes and develop comprehensive outcomes to deliver the best results for each patient. The patient will be able to approve anticipated results before the surgery takes place, thus improving the entire surgical experience.
What Procedures can I Preview?
Vectra 3D Imaging can show possible results for nearly all breast, facial, and body procedures. Our patients commonly request possible results following nose surgery, breast augmentation, facelift surgery, liposuction, and tummy tucks (to name a few). Ask our team and learn if Vectra 3D Imaging can assist you during your initial consultation.
