Computer Imaging: A Glimpse into the Future

It’s normal to have hesitations about changing your appearance. For my patients considering procedures such as facelift in Toronto, computer imaging technology can reduce worry by providing a visual prediction of surgical results.

This equipment uses your own photos and physical measurements to create a lifelike digital image of your surgical result. These images can be modified and altered to show the different aesthetic outcomes possible.

At my practice, I use computer imaging most frequently for rhinoplasty surgery, but also for a variety of other facial procedures like eyelid surgery and brow lift. I’ve found computer imaging to be extremely useful during consultations with my patients for a number of reasons:

  • It helps me better understand my patient’s goals for surgery
  • It facilitates dialogue about patient expectations
  • It offers reliable (although not perfect) depictions of what can be achieved
  • It provides the patient with peace of mind about their results
  • It allows the patient to see how surgery could be enhanced with complementary procedures

It’s important to remember that computer imaging is just a tool to help you get a good idea of what can be accomplished through surgery; it is not a guarantee of results. The best way to ensure that you receive an attractive result from facial surgery is to choose an experienced board-certified facial plastic surgeon.
