3D Imaging and Virtual Printing

Photography and advanced l imaging should be an integral part of any plastic surgery practice.

Currently most rhinoplasty analysis is carried out, using two-dimensional (2D) photographs of the patient’s features using anthropometric tool. In contrast to 2D images, we use the 3D photography and computerized models which retains the proportions of the face for preoperative planning and postoperative evaluation.

Virtual 3D Printing of the existing nose and the anticipated new nose on the other hand is another innovation that creates patient-specific 3D models to enhanced the pre-operative planning, as well as use intra-operative details of the surgery as a reference.

3 Dimensional Imaging , virtual reality imaging and 3D printing is an innovative, useful way of analyzing rhinoplasty and embracing it will bring useful cutting edge advantage .
