Vectra 3D Imaging Plastic Surgery

Sydney Plastic Surgeons Offer Vectra 3D Imaging Plastic Surgery

Have you ever wondered what you would look like after cosmetic or breast surgery?

If you are one of many people each year considering body surgery such as breast enlargement or breast reduction, we have some good news for you. Until now prospective surgery patients would often bring photographs of other people to show the doctor how they would like to look after surgery. However, exciting new three-dimensional (3D) colour photography and software technology enables you to see how you will look after surgery – before your procedure!

Breast surgery is highly individualised. It is often difficult to explain your specific desired look, and many patients feel anxious about how they will look after their procedure. The VECTRA 3D Imaging and Simulation system provides an amazing 3D visual image of your body that can be used to simulate and compare a range of outcomes following surgery, dramatically helping with the implant selection process as well as important decisions regarding your treatment plan.

Your consultation will begin by capturing a 180-degree image of your body. Multiple cameras take a number of pictures simultaneously from several different points of view. Within just a few minutes the software records precise measurements and details of your individual anatomy, and a very accurate three-dimensional virtual model of the area of your body you want to enhance through plastic surgery is developed.

Your 3D image can be viewed from all angles, including side-by-side and translucent overlays. Special software allows our Australian Surgeons to simulate different size implants, shapes and positions so you can visualise how you may look after your breast enhancement or breast reconstruction procedure. Once you have decided on the appearance you want, this simulation will provide a foundation for your surgical plan.

While simulations are based on the actual implants used for your surgery, it is important to note that the VECTRA 3D produces a simulation of the expected surgical result only. Actual results can and do vary

The VECTRA® 3-D imaging system is used to help you make the right choices regarding your cosmetic procedure. VECTRA’s three-dimensional computer models show you side-by-side, simulated before-and-after images. The VECTRA 3D software allows you to preview a variety of procedures offered by our Australian Surgeons;

  • Breast augmentation / implants
  • Breast lift
  • Breast lift with implants
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Facial enhancement


How it works

3D ImagingThe VECTRA 3D machine uses a number of cameras to take multiple simultaneous pictures of you from different viewpoints. This is used to build a 3D virtual image of your body to assist planning of your aesthetic procedure. Patients say that being able to see an image of the actual changes they are considering greatly increase their confidence and reassurance. It is important to note that actual results can vary due to factors such as your tissue quality and healing ability.

What to Expect

  1. Your VECTRA 3D imaging plastic surgery simulation experience begins with a picture session in the doctor’s office. This creates the starting point for your aesthetic consultation.
  2. Using special simulation software on your 3D picture, your doctor will show you the possible results of the aesthetic procedures you may choose to have. You will be able to experiment with different looks until you find the one you want.
  3. The entire process takes only a few minutes, and you will have the opportunity to review the results during your initial consultation. At that time you can request alternative simulations to be sure you are comfortable with the recommended surgical plan.
  4. Once you have decided on the appearance you want, this simulation will provide a basis for your surgical plan. Because you have already seen the result, you can be confident in the choice that you make.

Our Australian Platic Surgeons in Sydney are  proud to introduce the latest in 3D imaging technology and is only one of a very few cosmetic plastic surgery clinics in Australia to offer this technology.
