Vectra 3D Imaging
Professor Ashton uses the advanced VECTRA 3D imaging system to provide his patients with the most complete education possible regarding their surgical procedures. Using this system, we take a three dimensional photograph of the patient during consultation. Then, using VECTRA’s software simulation tools, we can create 3D representations of how you could look after surgery. This allows you the opportunity to preview various surgical options, and decide on the procedure that best suits your personal goals.
VECTRA 3D can used for breast augmentation, breast lifts, body contouring and rhinoplasty surgery. The entire process takes only a few minutes, and you will have the opportunity to review the results during your initial consultation. At that time you can request alternative simulations to be sure you are comfortable with the recommended surgical plan.
