In today’s modern world, plastic surgery is more popular than it has ever been before. People can correct flaws in their appearance that have been bothering them for years, and can even prevent future problems by addressing signs of aging before they arise.
Of course, it is natural to have questions about plastic surgery procedures and new techniques that are being used.
Dr. Jonathan Zelken of the Zelken Institute for Aesthetic Medicine in Newport Beach, California is an expert in the field of aesthetic plastic and reconstructive surgery.
He has a great deal of experience with facial sculpting, buccal fat pad removal, facial liposuction, facial implants, facelift, and energy-based skin tightening, among other procedures. He also enjoys being able to share his knowledge about the future of plastic surgery.
The Zelken Institute is dedicated to providing the best care possible to their local, national, and international patients, which means staying up to date with the latest cutting-edge technology and equipment. This includes the Vectra 2 software suite by Canfield and its corresponding computer system.
Using a camera, Dr. Zelken can take 3D photos and videos of his patients and transmit the footage into the software. The equipment allows him to track minute changes in volume and movement over time after removing fat from a certain area.
The camera simulates results to help him plan his surgery and all future surgeries afterward.
By viewing the results in 3D, Dr. Zelken can look for certain degrees of change to get an idea of what small adjustments will do to the patient’s face. This technology allows him to physically mark out a surgical plan that aligns with his vision for the patient and with what the patient desires.
In addition to this, the 3D before and after photos that are created are teaching tools. Dr. Zelken can study how certain surgical procedures will affect patients of a particular body type and the benefits of performing facial liposuction in the future.
Dr. Zelken will be able to create case studies to track early outcomes and determine if a procedure will result in a favorable outcome for his patient.
If you are curious to see the results of your planned facial liposuction before it happens, you can make an appointment at (949- 432-4730) to see Dr. Zelken at our Newport Beach office.
