Innovative 3D Imaging For Better Breast Enhancement



When considering a breast augmentation, it isn’t always easy to communicate exactly what you want from the procedure. You know your body better than anyone and it is difficult to describe your goals without a visual aid. In many circumstances, a visual aid is not possible to show you and your Kirkland plastic surgeon exactly what you want. But, at Northwest Face and Body, we utilize Vectra 3D imaging technology that allows you to accurately see what your implants will look like and how they will compliment your specific body.

What Is Vectra 3D Imaging?

Vectra 3D imaging is technology that scans your body and creates a 3D image of your body. With this 3D image, you and Dr. Allegra can simulate the look of different types and sizes of breast implants. It is also interactive and movable, so you can view the current and future look your breasts from multiple angles and even overlaid on top of one another.

Without this technology, other methods would allow you to try on implants under your clothes, but with Vectra 3D imaging, you can get a comprehensive view of what your enhanced breasts will look like before committing to surgery.

How Does It Work?

Vectra 3D imaging captures a 3D image of your body in just 3.5 milliseconds, which means you won’t have to stand still long for Vectra to get an accurate image. Once it is finished generating the image, you will have a photo of your breasts with accurate measurements and proportions.

At this point, Dr. Allegra will place landmarks on the image and select your desired type and manufacturer of breast implants. You can continue to try out different sizes, types, and manufacturers to find the breast implants that provide your desired results.
