My patients really respond to VECTRA® 3D simulations. It gives them more confidence in their aesthetic goals, which reinforces their commitment and ultimately helps assure greater satisfaction with the results. Our first VECTRA XT was so effective it paid for itself in only 3 months. The following year we bought another for our branch office.
Charlotte Plastic Surgery offers both aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures as well as an extensive range of cosmetic skin care services. Serving the community since 1951, it is Charlotte's oldest and largest plastic surgery practice and enjoys a national reputation for excellence. In 2012 they conducted an extensive evaluation of the benefits that a 3D system could bring to their practice. As a result, they bought their first VECTRA XT system in July of that year. It quickly became an integral part of their practice and the following year they bought a second system for a branch office in South Charlotte.
"I use it in every breast augmentation consult" States Dr. Finical. "The great thing about it is that the patient is sitting on the same side of the table as me, looking at the goal they want to achieve. This creates a rapport and sense of teamwork with the patient that you wouldn't otherwise have. And because we are looking at this objectively, they are less self-conscious. They are also more likely to be satisfied with the outcomes, and we now have far fewer instances where patients come back with size change requests."
