With the introduction of VR(Virtual Reality) based simulators, surgeons keep learning these procedures that are different from traditional surgery procedures. In fact VR environments are promising medium to carry out training and practicing surgery techniques efficiently. This paper investigates the key component of simulation of multiple layers of 3D soft tissues of human skin. CUDA based GPU computing is adopted to speed up the simulation performance. The parallel computation is achieved

The comparative analysis of the models performance shows that there is a significant increase in speed up at a fraction of the cost with GPU equivalent to ten times the traditional CPU cores.
