VECTRA® 3-D Digital Camera & Imaging
The VECTRA 3-D system enables our surgeons to evaluate a patient from multiple perspectives and angles, allowing views of the face and body that could never be achieved with standard photography. VECTRA creates a 3-dimensional simulation of a specific region of a patient's body. The simulation can show how a patient's breasts would look with implants of different sizes or how a nose would look with the hump removed. Although these simulations are not direct predictions of exactly how a patient will look after a procedure, they do let us get a good idea of what's possible. They can also help patients decide what they want and express it to the surgeon. It's easier, for example, for a breast augmentation patient to point out what she likes in a simulated image than to try to describe it.
LifeCell™ SPY Elite® System
Dr. Bidic has worked to ensure that many of the hospitals where he performs breast reconstruction procedures have LifeCell's SPY technology available for immediate reconstruction operations. The system allows Dr. Bidic to evaluate the blood supply to the patient's breast skin in real time. This lets him utilize only the skin that has the necessary blood supply and substantially decreases complications after mastectomy. This also helps Dr. Bidic perform direct-to-implant immediate breast reconstructions.
Silicone Intraoperative Breast Implant Sizers
These sizers allow our surgeons to compare different implant projections and sizes to find the best implant to fit the patient's breast pocket. Not utilizing intraoperative breast implant sizers is like buying clothes without trying them on first.
The LightSheer DUET is a revolutionary laser hair removal system by Lumenis® that allows any person, no matter what skin color, to undergo laser hair reduction on every area of the body, including the face, armpits, back, legs, bikini area, and so on. The DUET has a large interface with a vacuum system that decreases discomfort and allows large areas to be treated in minimal time. A man's back can be treated in 10 minutes, and an armpit takes fewer than 3 minutes. In typical "laser hair removal," you may be getting IPL or other less effective hair treatment systems. The LightSheer DUET is state-of-the-art. Dr. Bidic waited more than 2 years to acquire this FDA-approved system, and his is the only practice offering this top-of-the-line medical spa treatment in southern New Jersey.
Nd:YAG for Spider Vein Removal
Our plastic surgeons also have a Lumenis M22™ Nd:YAG laser for spider vein removal. Highly effective, this laser targets the superficial, purple, small spider veins that cannot be treated by surgery or injections. This revolutionary therapy does not require incisions, injections, or post-procedure compression garments. Normal activity can be resumed the day after treatment.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Our plastic surgeons use the Lumenis M22 IPL machine for quick and effective photofacials. The system's chill-touch interface makes for minimal discomfort and allows for the treatment of age spots and red spots on any part of the body.
CoolSculpting is a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that can target various areas where stubborn fat persists, even for men and women who are in overall good shape. As its name implies, CoolSculpting uses cold temperatures to "freeze" fat cells, causing them to crystallize and die. It's an excellent treatment option for patients who are at or near their ideal weights but have bulges that don't respond to exercise and diet.
We use the NeoGraft system for hair restoration. This approach is different from previous "strip" hair transplant techniques because it harvests and transplants follicles one at a time, significantly reducing scarring. NeoGraft is an excellent option for both men and women experiencing thinning hair or balding.
