VECTRA 3D IMAGING
When contemplating plastic surgery like breast augmentation or rhinoplasty, it’s difficult to visualize the results you should expect after the procedure. The traditional method of reviewing before and after pictures of previous patients may give you a vague idea of the results, but this process is not an exact science when considering facial improvements or body contour changes.
Vectra 3D imaging takes out most of the guesswork. It modernizes your consultation experience and gives you a clearer picture of the potential results before choosing the procedure. Vectra 3D Imaging will also help your facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon devise an optimal surgical plan to deliver the best outcome possible.
Vectra 3D imaging is more than an imaging system; it also helps ease any doubts and gives you more confidence in the procedure and the results you can expect.
HOW VECTRA 3D IMAGING WORKS
This advanced imaging technology uses a three-dimensional photography system that captures every necessary detail to provide a visual prediction of how your surgical results may appear. After we take these images, we load them into our Sculptor software system, which allows you and your surgeon to make specific adjustments to develop a surgical goal.
This amazing process gives you the power to have more involvement in the surgical planning and receive a closer version to the possible outcome and your desired results. It will also allow you to have a more meaningful discussion about the surgery with our surgeon.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT WITH VECTRA 3D IMAGING
During your consultation, we will discuss surgical options. We have an array of procedures available with multiple techniques that can significantly improve your appearance. But, if you’re not sure of the best approach, Vectra 3D imaging will reveal each result you can expect from the techniques available. It will also help you pinpoint any concerns you may have and communicate them to your surgeon. This process will put you and your surgeon on the same page, increase your confidence in the procedure, and reduce any anxieties you may have.
The Vectra 3D imaging process is simple. You stand in front of our 3D photo device to provide multiple images of the treatment area. The system will record these images, and then we will upload them into our Sculptor software. You should understand the results may not be exact, but very close. However, it gives your surgeon a clearer picture of what he should strive for, which is crucial for any successful surgery.
For patients who want to minimize the effects of aging or improve facial contours, board-certified facial plastic surgeons Dr. Parker Velargo and Dr. Celeste Gary use the Vectra 3D Imaging system to facilitate an informative consultation process. Whether it’s changing nose contours, adjusting chin projection, increasing facial volume, or resolving wrinkles and folds, he can provide the necessary information for you to make a wise decision.
If you are considering a body contouring procedure like breast surgery, tummy tuck, thigh lift, body lift, or mommy makeover, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Russell Hendrick utilizes Vectra 3D imaging to show you how these procedures can improve your figure and body outline.
Breast surgeries include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, and breast reconstruction. It’s important for women to understand how any breast surgery will affect their breast appearance because it also affects their overall figure.
Dr. Hendrick will be able to give you a detailed vision of how your breast surgery will improve your contour, and make you look and feel beautiful.
VECTRA 3-D IMAGING FAQS
Actual results are usually close to the Vectra 3D images, but not guaranteed. This cutting-edge technology presents you and your surgeon with a guide to develop a realistic surgical goal. Vectra imaging not only helps you anticipate your post-surgical results but will also help us formulate the best surgical plan.
With implant surgeries like breast and chin augmentation, Vectra 3D Imaging will help you choose the best implants for you from different types and sizes. You will also be able to see other benefits like available contouring techniques with the implants available.
Yes, this system includes special tools that show the position and size of each breast. Breast asymmetry is a common issue with many women, and the software analysis is critical to developing a plan which will compensate for different sizes and correct asymmetrical issues.
This system uses multiple cameras to capture a three-dimensional image of the treatment site. It takes multiple pictures simultaneously from different angles and views to build a virtual model of the body part considered for improvement. This image will give you and your surgeon an ideal starting point to develop a realistic surgical goal.
Once the three-dimensional image is loaded and processed into the Sculptor software, we can rotate this image from any angle to show you a current position, shape, and size. Then we can apply simulation tools to virtually alter these traits until we achieve the best possible results that mirror your goals. These results provide a valuable tool to develop the best surgical plan for your desired results.
