VECTRA® 3D Process | The Centre, P.C. Cosmetic Surgery

VECTRA® 3D Process

Oh, to have the ability to actually see your results before you commit to breast implants. To be able to see yourself—a three-dimensional you, the real you from every angle—enhanced to what-could-be through surgery.

Truth be told, who wouldn’t want that opportunity? As a culture, we spend so much time second-guessing even our desire for cosmetic enhancements or corrections. At The Centre, P.C., when we see patients at their initial consult, often they want to be told that what they want is ok.

Until very recently, cosmetic surgeons could only help their patients visualize themselves post-surgery through before-and-after photos of other women’s bodies, or with testimonials. Yet nothing could really help patients see what their very own body could look like.

It was the reason our founder Dr. Ronald Downs brought the first (and only) digital image technology to our area. Through the VECTRA ® 3D system, patients can finally see realistic previews of their post-op bodies prior to surgery.

The cool part about the VECTRA® is that it’s not just for breast augmentation.

Rhinoplasty patients, people who are considering chin implants, even those who want a tummy tuck can all take a digital look at what a change could look like.

So good is this technology, our doctors can adjust sizing and re-sculpt the images during your consultation, so when you enter our surgical suite, both you and your surgeon have the same expectations for the results.

The imagery from the VECTRA® is stunningly realistic, says Dr. Downs. “The patient becomes very comfortable with the expected results of their surgery. And frankly, as plastic surgeons, we get a very good understanding of our patients’ personal expectations because we see those expectations right in front of us on the screen.”
