At Silkwood, we understand the hesitation many patients experience before deciding to undergo plastic surgery. The uncertainty of whether you will be satisfied with the end results can cause patients much anxiety.
In the past, patients have had to rely solely on verbal communication to outline their expectations and describe their desired surgery results. Now, with the use of the latest virtual imaging software you can accurately visualise the possibilities of your anticipated surgical procedures before making your final decision.
You no longer need to make a decision based on someone else’s photographs, but with VECTRA 3D simulation technology we are now able to capture a three-dimensional patient photograph, which we can manipulate to create a clear picture of how you will look post surgery so you can feel confident you will get the results you want.
Our VECTRA 3D machine not only creates simulations for surgical procedures, but it’s also a useful tool for non-surgical skin treatments. The photos taken with the VECTRA machine can show different layers of your skin and visualise underlying skin conditions, such as pigmentation, blood vessels, or enlarged pores.
If you are thinking about plastic surgery or if you’d like a full skin analysis, we encourage you to schedule a consultation at our clinic in Bondi Junction, Sydney, so that you can visualise the results of your desired procedure with VECTRA 3D.

Your VECTRA 3D simulation experience begins with having your picture taken in our photographic room. This creates the starting point for your aesthetic consultation.
Using special simulation software on your 3D picture, your doctor will show you the possible results of the aesthetic procedures you may choose to have. For surgical procedures, you will be able to experiment with different looks until you find the one you want. For non-surgical skin treatments, our dermal clinician will show you the different layers of your skin and explain the possible treatments to improve skin concerns.
Once you have decided on the result you want, this simulation will provide a basis for your surgical plan or non-surgical treatments. Because you have already seen the result, you can be confident in the outcome of the procedure.
VECTRA software includes special tools to show the size and position of each breast. Breast “asymmetry” is very common, and VECTRA analysis helps your Plastic Surgeon develop a surgical plan which will help reduce your asymmetry.
That will depend on the type of procedure you choose, where it is performed and other factors. You should discuss costs with your Plastic Surgeon and our Cosmetic Surgery Consultant during the initial consultation.
