VECTRA 3D Aesthetic Simulations: FAQs

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 that your surgeon will use.

Will this software help my 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 your doctor 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 your physician. 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 your doctor during the initial consultation.

Can my doctor show me where the scars will be?

Your doctor should be prepared to discuss the possibility of scarring or any other effects from the surgery.
