In his practice, Dr. Ortegon and Dr. Baumholtz use VECTRA 3D Simulation Technology for patients interested in breast augmentation in San Antonio. By utilizing this technology, Dr. Ortegon and Dr. Baumholtz are able to plan for your surgery, and you can visualize the results you desire before undergoing the procedure.

What to Expect
- Your VECTRA 3D simulation experience begins with a picture session at our San Antonio plastic surgery office. This creates the starting point for your aesthetic consultation.
- Using special simulation software on your 3D picture, one of our plastic surgeons will show you the possible results of the aesthetic procedures you may choose to have. You will be able to experiment with different looks until you find the one you want.
- Once you have decided on the appearance you want, this simulation will provide a basis for your surgical plan. Because you have already seen the result, you can be confident in the outcome of the procedure.
About the Technology
VECTRA 3D Simulation Technology
The VECTRA 3D simulation technology that will be used by Dr. Ortegon and Dr. Baumholtz was developed by Canfield Imaging Systems, a division of Canfield Scientific, the leading provider of clinical imaging systems. Canfield specializes in photographic applications for aesthetic medicine, and their products are used in patient consultations by thousands of practitioners worldwide.
The VECTRA 3D Camera
The VECTRA 3D camera captures a three dimensional photograph of the subject. Using multiple cameras, it takes a number of pictures simultaneously from several different points of view. This is used to build a three dimensional virtual model of the subject.
Sculptor 3D Software
The three dimensional photograph is processed by Sculptor software to display the virtual model on a computer monitor. It can be rotated on the screen and viewed from almost any angle. The software then allows Dr. Ortegon or Dr. Baumholtz to apply simulation tools that change the size, shape and position of your breasts to achieve the desired appearance. Once you are satisfied with the result, our surgeons will develop a surgical plan based on the changes you have made.
