At Coastal Empire Plastic Surgery, we pride ourselves on providing personalized, compassionate care. As a part of our commitment to total patient care, we offer Vectra® 3D Imaging. This innovative technology has revolutionized the way plastic surgeons perform surgical consultations. We are the only practice in the Savannah area 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 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 is right for you.
How Vectra Works
Using a high-resolution, color image camera, Vectra takes six simultaneous photos to create a simulated three-dimensional image based on your targeted body area. The capture only takes a view minutes to create and upload your virtual model. Vectra uses sophisticated imaging equipment to map the surface anatomy of your body, allowing your image can 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
- 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.
