Vectra 3D

In his practice, Dr. Ortegon uses VECTRA 3D Simulation Technology for patients interested in breast augmentation in San Antonio. By utilizing this technology, Dr. Ortegon is 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, our plastic surgeon 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

untitled-1

VECTRA 3D Simulation Technology

The VECTRA 3D simulation technology that will be used by Dr. Ortegon 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 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 surgeon will develop a surgical plan based on the changes you have made.

Frequently Asked Questions

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?
Actual results will be very similar to the simulations. VECTRA simulations are based on the actual implants used.
Will this software help the surgeon 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 VECTRA analysis helps Dr. Ortegon 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 our board certified plastic surgeon. VECTRA 3D can show you the possibilities of the procedure, but is not intended as a substitute for a medical consultation.
How much will my breast augmentation surgery cost?
That will depend on the type of procedure you choose, where it is performed and other factors. You should discuss costs with Dr. Ortegon during the initial consultation.
Can the surgeon show me where the scars will be?
Dr. Ortegon will be prepared to discuss the possibility of scarring or any other effects from the surgery.
