Top Plastic Surgeon Introduces World’s First VECTRA XT 3D Imaging Solution
NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Top plastic surgeon, Dr. David Shafer, MD, FACS, introduces the world’s first VECTRA XT 3D face, breast and body cosmetic surgery simulation at his New York City office. Patients can view simulated breast augmentation, liposuction, mommy makeover, facelift, rhinoplasty and virtually any procedure on their own body.
With his creation of the world’s first plastic surgery and medical tourism iPhone Apps, Dr. David Shafer again is on the forefront of technology in plastic surgery. VECTRA XT, developed by Canfield Scientific, allows patients to visualize 3D images of their body and see desired results with simulations of cosmetic surgery procedures prior to actually having surgery.
A double board certified plastic surgeon, trained at Mayo Clinic and fellowship trained in face, breast, and body aesthetic surgery, Dr. David Shafer has established a global patient base facilitated through the use of technology. This latest venture uses 3D imaging for state-of-the-art consultations to analyze patient anatomy, breast measurements as well as facial and body contours.
Dr. David Shafer says, “Terms that patients use to express their desired outcomes are often subjective. This innovation reduces ambiguity and creates an effective platform for discussion of desired results.” Dr. David Shafer says VECTRA XT enhances his patient-surgeon communication and helps manage expectations and comfort level pre-surgery. “These are not animations on the screen, but the patient’s actual body in three dimensions utilizing specific implant measurements.” The software can identify breast asymmetry and volume discrepancy, aiding more accurate breast implant choice. The software incorporates all major implant brands, shapes and sizes from FDA approved manufacturers. According to Dr. David Shafer, “the technology has advantages for both cosmetic and reconstructive patients. Patients born with breast asymmetry can visualize potential outcomes from reconstructive surgery prior to undergoing the procedure.”
Dr. David Shafer takes plastic surgery consultations to a new level. The technology is unique among other systems as the cameras can capture the patient’s face, breast and body in one simple process. Customized simulations can then be created for cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures. Dr. David Shafer remarks, “The visual detail is so great, results for Botox Cosmetic and facial filler treatments can be simulated for the patient.”
In addition to body simulation, the VECTRA XT cameras image the subsurface melanin and vascular conditions of the skin, which helps guide skin treatments with cosmetic surgery procedures.
Dr. David Shafer uses the VECTRA XT system to analyze patient anatomy prior to plastic surgery procedures, facilitate patient-surgeon communication, simulate potential outcomes prior to cosmetic surgery, and enhance patient ability to make informed decisions.
Consultations can be scheduled at his Manhattan offices by calling 212-888-7770, or emailing email@example.com. Virtual consultation are also available.
