Have you ever wondered what you would look like after cosmetic surgery? Now you can get a good idea with an exciting new technology available at our office: the VECTRA 3D Imaging system.
Used for cosmetic surgery imaging in the Peninsula Bay Area, this advanced medical photography device creates three-dimensional images of your face or body. The images can be adjusted to show how you might look after surgery. This can help you and Dr. Piro make important decisions regarding your treatment plan.
Whether you are curious about breast augmentation, rhinoplasty or even dermal fillers, VECTRA can give you a photographic depiction of what to expect.
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. Dr. Piro will begin your VECTRA session 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.
Dr. Piro 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, Dr. Piro 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.
Plastic surgery can seem frightening and risky to patients, especially those who are unfamiliar with aesthetic procedures. However, VECTRA 3D Imaging allows Dr. Piro to provide assurance and confidence to patients that are otherwise fearful of possible undesirable outcomes.
Undergoing aesthetic plastic surgery does not have to entail taking chances. Dr. Piro and the patient can now focus on a clearly defined objective that will produce desired results by adjusting the 3D representation of the patient's face and body before finalizing the patient's goals for plastic surgery and deciding on the best treatment protocol to achieve those goals.
The innovative 3D technology that Dr. Piro uses results in high patient satisfaction, as it reduces the risk of miscommunication between the surgeon and patient. Because the entire process is performed prior to making any incisions, both the clinical staff and the patient are able to progress with confidence, knowing everyone is moving in cooperation toward the same, precise goal.
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 the expected outcome for several procedures, including:
