3D Imaging for Plastic Surgery


Here at VIDA we are dedicated to using the most innovative and up-to-date services and products to maximize your beauty and wellness experience. And we mean it! There are so many technological resources that have improved the process of getting cosmetic surgery, that we have to share them with our patients. We are ecstatic to announce the arrival of Vectra 3D Imaging to enhance the process of your cosmetic procedure! Thanks to Vectra 3D Imaging, you can preview what you will look like after a procedure BEFORE you have it.

What is Vectra 3D Imaging?

Many times, patients come to a consultation with the photo of a celebrity and ask their surgeons to replicate it.  And while Kim Kardashian’s nose, Scarlett Johansson’s lips and Rihanna’s cheekbones are beautiful all on their own, the most important thing to remember is that your procedure is about you – and to be realistic.

This is where the Vectra software comes in. You can see a 3D image of your desired results before you get any procedure done. The surgeon will then advise you on the best way to achieve your appearance enhancement goals. The process is simple: Our surgeons measure your features with the Vectra 3D camera, you discuss your desired results, the doctor then makes the changes in the software, and then you preview how you will look. So, how would Kim K’s nose look on you? Love it? Not feeling it? Whether it’s rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, facelift, or any other procedure, Vectra 3D Imaging enhances the consultation process and gives you peace of mind.

How Does Vectra 3D Imaging Work?

Having some anxiety or uncertainty about your nose job, facelift, or breast augmentation? Vectra software is here to put your mind at ease and give you the confidence to move forward with your cosmetic enhancement plans. Vectra is a completely painless, quick, and easy process and I had the privilege to sit down for a session to see how it’s all done.

First, you are positioned in front of the Vectra 3D camera, which resembles some sort of hyper-futuristic time machine, either sitting or standing depending on which area of the body is being focused on. Next, six two-dimensional photographs with six cameras simultaneously take pictures transforming the area into a 180-degree three-dimensional image.

        This is where the magic happens: the photo is then brought up on a computer software system stacked with high tech tools to tweak and adjust the appearance of the area being treated.  The 180-degree image can then be toggled to any direction. View from the top? Check. View from the right? Check. View from the bottom. Check. The best thing is, the system also takes accurate measurements picking up on the slightest asymmetries within the body area being photographed. This makes the surgeon’s recommendations for your plastic surgery much more efficient and precise. The image produced is so high definition even the smallest freckle can be seen just by zooming in.

The Vectra software is so exact when measuring your features that the camera also takes into account the pull of gravity. This is especially helpful for breast augmentation surgery where the surgeon can bring up your image to “try on” different sizes of implants or accurately produce how the breasts will appear even after a reduction or a lift.

How much does Vectra 3D Imaging Cost?

Use of the Vectra 3D software at VIDA is complimentary and included in your free consultation. Not only is the Vectra software used to help patients visualize their results, it is an especially useful tool for surgeons when reviewing each patient’s individual case. The software accurately measures every dimension of the body area being photographed, therefore providing essential information the surgeon will then take into account when performing the procedure. It’s a win-win!
