The Vectra 3D Camera
The system captures a three dimensional photograph of you. Using multiple cameras, it takes a number of pictures simultaneously from several different points of view. The system uses these photos to build a three dimensional virtual model for you.
The three dimensional photograph is processed to display the virtual model and displays it on the computer monitor. It can be rotated on the screen and viewed from almost any angle. The software then allows Dr. Sofer to change the size, shape and position of your breasts to achieve the desired appearance. Once you are satisfied with the result, Dr. Sofer will develop a surgical plan based on the changes you both have made.
Will I be able to see what different implants are best for me?
Yes. You will be able to see how you would like with different size and types of implants. You will also be able to see the possible benefits of a breast lift in conjunction with the augmentation.
How close will the simulated result be to the actual result?
Very similar, but Dr. Sofer can provide more details. Simulations are based on the actual implants that Dr. Sofer will use.
Will this software help Dr. Sofer to see that my breasts are different sizes?
Vectra software includes special tools to show the size and position of each breast. Breast asymmetry is very common, and analysis helps Dr. Sofer develop a surgical plan which will compensate for it if necessary.
Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery?
That is a decision you will make with Dr. Sofer. VECTRA 3D can show you the possibilities of the procedure, but is not intended as a substitute for a medical consultation.
