Vectra 3D imaging has revolutionized the way plastic surgeons perform a consultation. Moving beyond traditional photography to a 3-dimensional view allows you and your surgeon to get an extremely accurate picture of the expected results that can be achieved, as well as being able to see them from multiple angles–as if you were looking at them in person or in the mirror.
To describe your procedure and help you truly understand the results, this technology is incredibly useful. For plastic and reconstructive surgeons around the country, this system has dramatically improved pre-procedure planning and analysis.
Your Procedure Options with Vectra 3D
VECTRA can be used to help plan several popular surgical procedures for the face, breast, and body. It can also be an effective tool in predicting the results of injectable treatments, such as neurotoxins and fillers. The VECTRA system is used to get a visual representation of the expected outcome for several procedures, including:
- Breast augmentation
- Breast lift (mastopexy) with and without augmentation
Vectra 3-D Imaging for Breast Enhancement
Vectra is excellent for planning breast surgery and especially useful for breast augmentation. After capturing six photos simultaneously, the computer creates a 3D image that can be rotated and viewed from above or below. With up-to-date information on breast implant sizes and shapes, the Vectra system visually approximates the changes in your appearance that can be expected after your breast augmentation.
These images can be compared and rotated in multiple directions to understand the results with the utmost precision. We can even overlay a “ghost image” of the expected outcome over your first photo to understand the changes in breast shape and breast volume.
Vectra 3-D imaging can also simulate a mastopexy (breast lift) procedure in the right patient. Your plastic surgeon will determine if this is a good tool, based on your physical exam, to simulate your mastopexy and/or implant + mastopexy procedure.
Vectra 3-D Imaging for Rhinoplasty
In many cases, it is difficult for patients considering rhinoplasty to understand the expected outcome. Fortunately, planning and approximating the results with the Vectra system has made this much easier.
A nose that is humped, wide, or crooked should be seen from several angles to understand what needs to be reshaped. With the 6-camera Vectra imaging system, we can capture images of your face and then analyze the angles of your nose from different viewpoints as the image rotates.
