4 Reasons to Love 3D Imaging for Breast Implants

One of the biggest concerns for women getting breast augmentation is deciding what size breast implants to get. Even with various tools like implant sizer bras and looking at photos of other women, it can be difficult to know exactly how your implants will look on your unique body. But now, thanks to Vectra 3D imaging, you can “try on” various implants before beginning your procedure, which can be beneficial for a host of reasons.

1. Great Technology

For starters, 3D imaging is quick, comfortable and accurate. With a capture time of 3.5 milliseconds, this technology can take 3D images of your body and transfer them to a computer screen, where your surgeon can then add different implants.

2. Choose Exactly What You Want

Because 3D imaging uses images of your own body, it's the most accurate way to determine just what your finished results will look like. Often, women can get a skewed perception of how certain implant sizes will look on them, as implants are actually measured in volume rather than by bra size. With 3D imagining, you can get a sneak peak of your implants before choosing what size is best for you.

3. Better Communication Between You and Your Surgeon

This technology is just as helpful to surgeons as it is to women. When describing their desired look, women often use words such as “curvy” or “voluptuous,” but these can mean different things to different people. Using 3D imaging together with your surgeon can help you more accurately describe exactly what you’re looking for.

4. Key Details for Surgeons

Additionally, 3D imaging can help your surgeon assess small details about the shape of your body that may affect your implants. Because these details can be difficult to explain, 3D imaging allows surgeons to visually illustrate these elements.
