What Is a Breast Augmentation Versus a Lift?
A breast augmentation, also known as a mammoplasty, is a procedure to increase the size of the breasts. A lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure to remove excess skin and lift the breasts by tightening the skin. It may also involve reshaping some of the breast tissue to give a fuller, tighter appearance. Deciding which one to get is based on what you want your breasts to look like. That’s why Dr. Kunkel utilizes the Vectra XT 3D imaging system.
How Does the Vectra XT Work?
Dr. Kelly Kunkel was the first plastic surgeon in Tarrant County to use the Vectra XT 3D imaging system. Three companies make breast implants for use in the United States: Mentor, Allergan, and Sientra. The Vectra Breast Sculptor software contains information about almost every breast implant from these companies.
This system uses six cameras that take photographs of a woman’s torso. The software then takes the data from the six photographs and creates a three-dimensional image of the chest. Once an image of a woman’s breasts/ chest is created using the Vectra system, it is possible to alter the 3D image to show what she may look like with specific implants. This 3D image may be rotated in all directions, allowing visualization of the torso from angles that are almost impossible to view, even in a mirror.
Instead of placing implants inside a bra or filling baggies with rice and trying that on, the Vectra XT 3D system gives a woman a reasonable idea of what she may look like with specific breast implants (saline or silicone, round or shaped). This allows her to see herself from every angle, including ones that are difficult to see in a mirror.
The 3D imaging system has transformed Dr. Kunkel’s consultation process. While the Vectra system does not show a woman exactly what she will look like, this system helps make the consultation process more complete. You and Dr. Kunkel will be able to view all of the possibilities and create a plan completely personalized to you.
