The Best Vectra 3D Imaging Candidates
- A breast augmentation patient who wants to individualize treatment by visualizing potential results and viewing what different size implants look like.
- A liposuction patient who wants to visualize your new slimmer shape.
- A patient interested in facial rejuvenation who wants to see what precise anatomic sculpting can accomplish to restore and revive your look.
- A Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) patient who wants to partner with your surgeon to determine the best size and proportion for your new body.
Your Vectra 3D Imaging Options
When it comes to preoperative visualization of potential results, there is no better tool for strengthening the partnership between surgeon and patient than the Vectra 3D imaging system. You don’t need to look through old photo books of other people’s results. You don’t need to guess how that next size bigger or smaller implant will change your result – you can see it. We can use your own photo and the powerful Canfield software suite to show you what YOU can look like after a procedure with a Restore SD surgeon.
Why We Take Photos
At Restore SD Plastic Surgery, we are committed to achieving the most outstanding, consistent, and reproducible results possible. To that end, we have dedicated a section of our office to creating a state of the art photo studio that houses both the Vectra 3D imaging system as well as a traditional digital camera set up. Capturing accurate “before” pictures allows your Restore SD surgeon to better plan and carry out your surgery in the safest and most efficient manner. Pointing out subtle pre-existing breast asymmetries or seeing differences in facial features can help ensure that you have a full understanding of what your individual procedure can and cannot accomplish. Following surgery and through various stages of healing, “after” photos are taken to review with you and help your Restore SD surgeon continue to grow and deliver outstanding care as time goes by.
The Vectra 3D Imaging Process
As part of your consultation, you will be guided to the photography suite to have both Vectra 3D images and traditional photos taken. The photos are immediately available so that you are able to review your photos in the consultation room with your Restore SD plastic surgeon. This allows for enhanced communication and a shared understanding of what the surgery can accomplish. At Restore SD we strongly believe that this technology helps you decide on the ideal treatment plan and increases patient satisfaction.
How are my photos used?
When you visit Restore SD Plastic Surgery you will have the opportunity to sign a consent form detailing the permissions for use of your photographs. We rely on our patients to help educate other patients as well as ourselves. Please ask during your consultation if you would like more information about our photography policies.
Who can see my photos?
Your photos are added to your Patient NOW electronic medical record and become part of your permanent HIPAA compliant record at Restore SD Plastic Surgery. Your surgeon will review your photos with you prior to your procedure and following surgery, but they are otherwise not used without your permission.
