At Bay Area Aesthetic Surgery, we have invested in the latest equipment, including VECTRA 3D imaging, so our San Francisco breast augmentation, facelift and other cosmetic surgery patients can envision their new look. It also gives our team a viable education and communication tool.

During Your Consultation

During your consultation, a series of digital images will be taken. They will immediately be "developed," loaded into the computer and projected onto a screen. Through the use of a small pen and pad, your image can be altered to your satisfaction. This allows you to become actively involved in determining what is "just enough" and "too much." It will also help you decide the relative importance of multiple procedures, particularly with regard to facial rejuvenation. Our team will also draw on the screen to demonstrate incisions, underlying anatomy and other aspects of the technique(s.)

No computer image can be 100% accurate in determining your final result. However, it does contribute to a better understanding of the procedure and a stronger indication of a surgeon's artistic perspective. Both are important when building your trust and reinforcing your interpretation of what constitutes a natural result.

Facial Enhancement Imaging

A picture is worth a thousand words and computer imaging is an efficient way to help patients decide whether the likely result is worth the cost and discomfort of surgery. There is usually more than one reasonable aesthetic goal to be considered with most operations. Alternative proposals can be imaged and evaluated by the surgeon and the patient together giving the patient significant input into the final outcome. Gone are the days of the doctor just saying, 'Trust me I know what looks good.'
