How It Works
Using VECTRA during a consultation allows for detailed surgical planning by providing you with visual answers to your questions and setting reasonable expectations about your results. Your VECTRA session will begin by capturing a 180-degree image of the area you want to improve. Precise measurements and details of your individual anatomy are recorded by the software system, and a very accurate virtual image is developed.
The doctor can then manipulate the photograph to simulate your intended surgical outcome. You will be able to view the image from a variety of angles, and VECTRA will display side-by-side before-and-after photos for easy comparison. During this time, the doctor will discuss your treatment objectives and explore the possible variations using VECTRA. Additional procedures may be suggested to help you achieve the results you’re looking for. At the end of your appointment, a printout of your before-and-after photos will be given to you to take home.
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 BOTOX® Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM®. The VECTRA system is used to get a visual representation of expected outcome for several procedures, including:
- Breast Augmentation
- Mastopexy Augmentation
