What is vectra 3d imaging?
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.

"I had decided for my birthday that I was going to gift myself some Botox! After doing as millennials do (i.e. going to Google and Reddit to research and find recommendations), I chose Dr. Fernau's office. I was not looking for the cheapest or closest option -- I wanted the best. I liked the idea of a facial plastic surgeon taking care of my Botox -- I didn't think I would be pressured to do more than I was comfortable, and I wanted natural results. From inquiry to scheduling to the actual appointment, everything was easy and the staff is so kind! Sheila performed my procedure, and she walked me through what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. I'm only two days post-procedure, and I can already tell a difference -- it's very subtle, I feel like I still completely look like me, but refreshed. 10/10 recommend a birthday gift to yourself of Botox, and 10/10 recommend seeing Sheila, Dr. Fernau, and team! I will definitely be returning!"- T.P. / Google / Oct 12, 2023
"I looked up so many Plastic Surgeons and Dr. Fernau was the one I had chosen. I found him on Instagram. Check out his work!!!! It’s amazing what he does! I got breast augmentation and a umbilicoplasty done. Let’s say I was so nervous talking about what breast size I wanted and trying different ones but Sherry and Amber you girls are down to earth, which made me feel very comfortable. You girls helped me what size I was looking for. I’m very thankful!!!!! Dr. Fernau, Sherry, Alexa, and David, I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. Your knowledge & skills gave me a very natural fullness look just like I requested. I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful care you have given me. Thank you Dr. Fernau, Sherry, Amber, Cindy, Shelia, Alexa, and David. No one could ask for a better health-care team, you have been absolutely amazing!"- A.B. / Google / Oct 04, 2023

"Dr. Fernau, Sherry, and the entire staff are spectacular. I went for the NeoGraft procedure and could not happier. The procedure itself was like walking into a spa, recovery was a breeze, and I am already thrilled with the results. Sherry is an artist at what she does and the best you’ll find in the area. Furthermore, Dr. Fernau and his staff make your safety and care a top priority. I highly recommend this team."- K.D. / Google / Sep 13, 2023

What are the Benefits of Vectra 3D imaging?
It can be hard to imagine what you will look like after a cosmetic procedure. Vectra 3D Imaging allows patients to see a realistic simulation of their potential results. This tool does not replace an in-person consultation with Dr. Fernau, but it does help patients make more informed decisions about their care. There are no side effects associated with this technology, and the results are completely private. We are proud to offer such a cutting-edge service to our patients.
how does vectra 3d imaging work?
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.
