Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I have Face Sculptor in my practice?

Face Sculptor will enhance your patient's consultation experience, helping them visualize their hopes and expectations by;

  • communicating the possibilities as you demonstrate surgical and non-surgical facial procedures on a 3D image of your patient's face, while arriving at a shared understanding of treatment objectives.
  • exploring the combined effects of complementary procedures, such as rhinoplasty and chin augmentation, improving your patient's satisfaction, while also increasing the amount of procedures you perform.

This will increase conversion rates, help ensure post-surgery satisfaction and generate more patient referrals.

Can I run Face Sculptor on the computer in my consultation room?

Yes. Face Sculptor may be run from a computer other than the one provided with your turn-key system. The high quality Face Sculptor images may require additional graphic card performance. Contact Canfield Imaging Systems to see if your computer is adequate for running Face Sculptor. If not, we can make recommendations for computers or upgrades best suited for this purpose.

What is included with Face Sculptor?

Face Sculptor software comes as part of a complete turn-key solution suitable for professional Face Sculptor consultations. This solution includes the VECTRA High Resolution 3D Capture System, 3D Mirror software, computer, and one day of installation and training.

Do I need special lighting in my room to capture accurate images?

No. The VECTRA system includes lighting designed specifically for clinical photography, producing images without shadows and with color that matches the patient's own skin tones. No additional lighting is necessary

Can I use the modeled images as a reference during surgery?

2D images, saved from any angle of the 3D image, can be copied into a printable report for use during surgery. It is also possible to load the 3D image onto a PC located in the operating room, enabling the surgeon to use an electronic copy of the 3D image as a reference.

Can I model more than one procedure on the same image?

Yes. A patient initially interested in modifications to only one portion of their face, for instance their nose, can also be shown the effects of changes made to a complementary portion of the face such as their chin.

What types of facial adjustments are possible?

Several types of adjustments are provided to enable simulating most surgical and non-surgical procedures. Constrained and unconstrained tools are used to adjust the shape of the face, such as modifying the bridge of the nose, adding filler to the malar pad region and liposuction of the chin and neck. Additional skin texture tools are used to adjust surface changes, such as adding toxins, filling in nasolabial folds and skin resurfacing.

Is Face Sculptor easy to use?

Face Sculptor software is very easy to use. Graphical instructions, easy adjustment sliders and intuitive software guide the user to ensure that realistic surgical models are easily created. Face Sculptor's convenient viewing tools makes it easy to show your patient the likely outcome from any angle, as well as superimposed over the pre-op image or side-by-side.

What facial procedures are possible?

Face Sculptor currently provides the ability to model in 3D several facial procedures, including;

  • Rhinoplasty
  • Chin augmentation
  • Chin liposuction
  • Injectables (fillers and toxins)
  • Face lifts
  • Lip augmentation
