Posted April 13, 2016 in Breast Augmentation, VECTRA® XT 3D Imaging

Screen Shot 2016-04-13 at 11.34.53 AMA common fear among plastic surgery patients is that their results won’t turn out how they envisioned. It can be difficult to accurately explain your exact wants and needs, especially if you aren’t sure what they are yourself. Dr. Chin uses VECTRA® XT 3D imaging during his plastic surgery consultations to help his patients see their potential results before they undergo surgery by simulating the changes anticipated from surgery on the patient’s own body.


VECTRA® XT is a three-dimensional digital imaging system that uses real-life photos to create a composite image on the computer. The software allows Dr. Chin to manipulate the image to showcase the subtle differences and changes that may occur during your procedure.
