First Cosmetic Surgeon in Canada to Offer Vectra 3D Imaging Enables Patients to See into Their Future

Share Article

Dr. Cory Torgerson, a Toronto facial surgeon specializing in cutting edge facial cosmetic plastic surgery procedures and non-surgical cosmetic treatments, is the first in Canada to offer 3D Vectra Face Sculptor, giving clients a true glimpse into their future, allowing them to see post surgical results before the surgery has even begun.

Investing in the future of technology, Dr. Cory Torgerson of Dr Cory Torgerson Facial Cosmetic Surgery ( is the first surgeon in Canada to offer the very latest in simulated image technology that gives plastic surgery patients the opportunity to view a three-dimensional picture of exactly how they will look after undergoing a cosmetic surgical procedure. The VECTRA 3D and Face Sculptor simulates the outcome of plastic surgery, giving patients a glimpse into their future and a true picture of how their new face will look before they go under the knife.

Manufactured by Canfield Scientific Inc., a world leader in medical imaging software and photographic systems, the Vectra 3-D imaging system and Face Sculptor 3D software allow Dr. Torgerson to let his patients preview exactly how cheek implants, nose reshaping or a face lift will change their appearance. Using multiple simultaneous photographic views of the patient, the photos are computerized into a three dimensional image by the computer software. This 3-D image can then be manipulated on the computer screen to demonstrate to the patient exactly how they will look after their plastic surgery procedure and to make any modifications if desired. As well, the results can be rotated and viewed from any angle so that both surgeon and patient can get a true picture of future results in three dimensional animation.

"I started using the Vectra 3-D imaging system in January 2009, after consulting with Canfield Scientific about introducing this new technology to Canada. I have found it to be an amazing tool, especially when working with clients who can't envision how they would look after surgery or are not certain how cosmetic surgery would benefit them. Prior to this 3D imaging technology, a physician could only approximate the outcome of surgery by providing patients with a two-dimensional photograph displaying changes with only one view or a photograph manipulated with Photoshop. Obviously this in no way gave the patient an accurate view of how they would appear post surgery. It is a great advancement for plastic surgery," states Dr. Torgerson.

Every year thousands of people consider aesthetic plastic surgery. Many are hesitant to proceed because they can't visualize what the changes would look like or because they are concerned that the outcome would not be what they had intended. The new 3D imaging technology will put many of these fears to rest, changing the way many feel about cosmetic plastic surgery by giving them the comfort zone based on a very accurate animation of their face. Dr. Torgerson says that he is very happy that he invested in the 3D Vectra Face Sculptor imaging system for his practice. "I have found that it gives my patients confidence because they now know exactly what cosmetic surgery can do for them," says Dr. Torgerson. "Demonstrating to a patient with 3D imaging is so much simpler and infinitely more accurate than trying to explaining to them how they will look after surgery. We can both see the future results right there on the screen. Confusion and unrealistic expectations are eliminated and the patient and I can work together as a team to achieve their goals, adds Dr. Torgerson.

To learn more about the Vectra 3D imaging system, Dr. Torgerson will be at the Anti-Aging show at the International Centre in Toronto from March 19 through March 21, 2010. As well as being a keynote speaker, he will be at the show demonstrating the Vectra 3D imaging system and answering questions about how it can be used.
