About Vectra

You are attractive and strong, so any improvement to your face or body must take your current structure into account. Vectra is a comprehensive imaging system that maps the various layers of your skin, musculature and soft tissue. Its lighting system is flattering yet honest, illuminating the contours of your physique and expression down to the finest detail. 

Vectra offers a 360-degree look at your appearance, “stitching” together every angle to create a 3D composite of you in the computer. From there, we can make adjustments according to which procedure(s) you may want to explore. Watch how the virtual version of yourself changes in response to various treatments. Vectra allows you to make the most informed decision imaginable! 

Volume Maintenance

Over time, the face loses its youthful fullness. As the body produces less elastin and collagen, the skin loses its subdermal support structures. Cheeks and lips may become deflated and thin. You may overcompensate by increasing your makeup usage or shying away from facetime altogether, but Vectra provides a way to confront your loss of volume head-on.

With Vectra’s customized volume detection, you can see how sunken certain features have become. But the news isn’t all bad; the imaging system also allows you to visualize solutions to your predicament. For example, if you need to perk up your profile, Vectra can show you how much hyaluronic acid may be required to fill the gaps beneath your skin.[1]

Based on the findings of your 3D imaging, Dr. Tehrani and his associates can recommend the proper injectable treatments to bring volume and vitality back to your face. Whether a dermal filler like Restylane or a fat transfer would be more beneficial, Dr. Tehrani has a wide array of solutions ready to deploy. He can follow up your Vectra session with actionable remedies for whichever areas need an aesthetic boost.

Complexion Mapping

Now that the underlying structures of your skin have been sufficiently mapped, let’s focus on how effective Vectra is at surface imaging. The system’s RBX technology helps detect discolorations and textural inconsistencies.[2]

Vectra can help diagnose such skin conditions as melasma, acne, burgeoning spider veins, and rosacea. 

Once you have received a comprehensive landscape of your complexion, Dr. Tehrani can recommend the best treatment for your unique condition. To address breakouts and fine lines, for instance, you may want to explore the benefits of Fractora microneedling. Tehrani Plastic Surgery also offers a dazzling suite of facial options, so let Vectra guide the way to a shimmering new you!

360 Contouring

The human body is more than just an assemblage of arms, legs, and other assorted parts. It is a holistic work of art. Vectra celebrates the human form by offering 360-degree scans of a patient’s physique. This allows you to see how your chest aligns with your shoulders to create a pleasing shape along the upper body. The information gleaned from a Vectra 3D image is invaluable for people considering an arm lift, for example.

Recipients can get instantaneous before and after glimpses of how their silhouette would look with the help of Dr. Tehrani’s expertise.

Vectra is also a wonderful tool for clients who are interested in breast enhancement. The visualization software allows you to compare multiple scenarios at once, envisioning a plethora of sizes and shapes for the chest. In short, Vectra takes the guesswork out of augmentation, reduction, and breast lift surgeries. You can start a conversation about your ideal body by calling (949) 706-7776 at your earliest convenience. 

Benefits of Vectra

To describe the benefits of Vectra’s 3D imaging capabilities, we will need to step back and look at the big picture. Literally. The software seamlessly integrates multiple angles into an exact digital replica of your body and face. This allows for customized enhancements that create subtle yet striking transformations, courtesy of Dr. Tehrani.

Vectra represents a quantum leap in virtual capabilities, boasting an image capture time of only 3.5 milliseconds.[3] That means that you can move slightly without throwing off the cameras. The technology will adjust to your minor repositioning and “stitch” together the visuals without requiring lengthy reshoots

Eligible Candidates

Due to the versatility of Vectra’s photographic elements, virtually anyone is eligible for its 3D imaging services. You will be asked to stay relatively still for brief periods of time, so please inform your Tehrani Plastic Surgery team if that will be an issue. Other medical mapping techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), can be problematic for people struggling with claustrophobia.[4] That is not a concern with Vectra because patients are not enclosed in a loud, compact tube. 

To determine your candidacy for Vectra 3D imaging, call (949) 706-7776 and schedule a consultation.
