Are you worried about the results of your upcoming plastic surgery? It’s completely normal to feel nervous about changing a significant aspect of your body. Now, it is possible for patients to look at a preview of the final outcome, thanks to the revolutionary Vectra 3-D Imaging system.
With this advanced imaging system, your decision is no longer dependent on another patient’s before and after pictures or vague visualizations of the plastic surgery results in your mind. If you’re coming in for a breast augmentation or rhinoplasty procedure, you’ll be able to feel confident in your results thanks to Vectra 3-D Imaging.
Vectra 3-D Imaging for Breast Augmentation
We know that breast augmentation is extremely individualized. It may be difficult for you to explain to the plastic surgeon exactly what your goals are with regards to the breast augmentation procedure. Also, looking at the results of other patients may not be helpful and would give you an inaccurate and unrealistic picture of your surgery results, since every individual has a unique set of breasts.
The Vectra 3D Imaging system is an excellent solution. It is a revolutionary system that allows breast augmentation surgery candidates to preview their potential results before they go in for the surgery. For breast augmentation patients, the Vectra 3-D Imaging System offers a realistic picture of what the breasts would look like after surgery. It works as a brilliant educational tool for the patients and helps significantly in the selection of suitable implants.
How does Vectra create an image of the surgical outcome? The outcome is simulated based on the body of the patient. The imaging system is able to reproduce an image of the post-operative body of the patients, e.g. for a breast augmentation candidate, it would show the desirable size of the implants. This is done with the help of numerous camera angles as well as an entire library consisting of different implant sizes and shapes. The Vectra 3-D Imaging system is able to give a computer-generated vision of the patient’s post-surgery body.
Vectra 3-D Imaging for Rhinoplasty
Using Vectra 3-D Imaging for facial plastic surgery procedures such as rhinoplasty is also very helpful. The process begins with Vectra 3-D Imaging to generate a three-dimensional image of the patient. This is done with the help of six different cameras that take pictures of the patient from various angles.
Once the pictures are taken, these are combined together for creating a virtual and visual reconstruction of the patient’s face. Since the imaging system makes use of high-resolution image capture, all the fine details are presented in razor-sharp definition. The plastic surgeon then uses Sculptor software to simulate the expected outcomes of the rhinoplasty procedure for the patient.
The Vectra 3D tool will illustrate the outcome of your rhinoplasty procedure on a screen as well as in print. This means that you can also carry the photo back home and decide whether you like your new look or not. You can also show this picture to family members or friends before making a decision regarding rhinoplasty.
