The Center for Cosmetic Surgery recently purchased the Vectra® 3-D Breast Imaging System. Our new web page all about it will be live soon. We’ve been using this new technology in consultations for several weeks now and it has made a remarkable difference in the educational process. This system captures multiple pictures of a person’s body and reconstructs a three dimensional image which can be rotated on the computer screen. Then, a virtual augmented preview of the breasts can be displayed, using any size implants. Primarily, it serves as a tool to enhance the discussion, gather valuable feedback from patients, and provide a better idea of the expectations from surgery. Mostly, people find it comforting to preview their after-surgery result from breast augmentation before the surgery even happens.
The world of plastic surgery is not as technologically driven as many may think. But this is one advancement that I am embracing. It fills a void in the consultative process around breast augmentation: it answers the frequently asked question, “What will I look like after breast augmentation surgery?”Although there was no way to answer this before, now there is. And patients are loving it at our offices in Golden and Denver, Colorado.
