Vectra XT Imaging
There is no better way to see the possibilities of cosmetic surgery than with the Vectra XT at Plastic Surgery Associates. Using a high-resolution 3D image, patients in Napa Valley can see for themselves the endless potential in procedures for the face, breasts, and body. The system uses multiple cameras to create a realistic image, bringing to life prospective results and opening up a world of surgical options in Novato.
Vectra XT 3D Photo Imaging
Plastic Surgery Associates' Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas use the Vectra XT to clearly communicate the aesthetic possibilities a potential procedure can bring. The goal of each plastic surgery consultation is to establish realistic surgical expectations, although this can be difficult using only traditional methods. The Vectra XT's three-dimensional images give Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas the power to manipulate real photos of the patient's target areas. The images provide patients a simple starting point from which to communicate their desired changes. The Vectra XT is excellent for patients considering a wide variety of aesthetic procedures, such as rhinoplasty, liposuction, breast augmentation, and CoolSculpting.
The Vectra XT Breast Augmentation Consultation
With the Vectra XT, the breast augmentation consultation at Plastic Surgery Associates is the most precise and thorough available in Sonoma or Marin County. Using multiple camera angles and a library of different implant shapes and sizes, the Vectra XT creates an on-point image of your post-op results. The Vectra XT can provide an image that far exceeds the use of traditional implant sizers, which cannot give a true visual idea of what the breasts will look like without a bra.
