Vectra 3D Imaging Palo Alto
At Vistnes Plastic Surgery of Palo Alto, we pride ourselves on providing personalized, compassionate care. Our commitment to total patient care allows us to offer our new Vectra® 3D Imaging System.
This innovative technology has revolutionized the way plastic surgeons perform surgical consultations. We are extremely happy that we are able to offer this state of the art service.
With Vectra, you are able to preview a three-dimensional model of your anticipated results prior to surgery. These three-dimensional images can help your plastic surgeon design a customized surgical plan that meets your cosmetic goals.
Vectra 3D is primarily used for breast enhancement, but it can also be useful for body contouring procedures such as buttock augmentation or facial enhancement surgeries such as Rhinoplasty. Your plastic surgeon will be able to determine if Vectra 3D is right for your procedure.
How Vectra Works
Using a high-resolution, color image camera, Vectra 3D takes six simultaneous photos to create a simulated three-dimensional image based on your targeted body area. The capture only takes a few minutes to create and upload your virtual model. Vectra uses sophisticated imaging equipment to map the surface anatomy of your body, allowing your image to be rotated in all directions.
Once your model has been created, Vectra allows your plastic surgeon to manipulate your image to simulate various cosmetic enhancements and adjustments on a computer screen. This allows you to experiment with different modifications until you’ve found the look that fits your cosmetic ideal. An untouched version of your model and the surgery simulation will appear side-by-side on the screen, producing a visual simulation of before and after surgical results.
Benefits of Vectra
Vectra allows your plastic surgeon to develop a personalized surgical plan to match your precise measurements and aesthetic expectations. A Vectra consultation also facilitates a clear and open discussion about all available surgical options. Patients who choose Vectra can benefit from defined surgical goals, increased patient confidence and enhanced patient participation.
Viewing a three-dimensional representation improves the surgical process by creating clearly defined surgical expectations for patients and plastic surgeons. After a Vectra consultation, most patients are highly satisfied with the final cosmetic outcome of their procedure.
