Breast Augmentation Predicting Results Using Vectra Imaging System

By: Dr. Nana Mizuguchi


The most important decision I make for your breast augmentation surgery is to select the appropriate breast implants to achieve your desired goals. Breast implants today come in many sizes, shapes, texture, and profiles and can be confusing for my patients.  Remember that there are most likely several different breast implants that can be used to achieve similar results. Apparent final breast size is the most critical factor in determining patient happiness. I see patients who have naturally beautiful breasts but are unhappy because they are too small or too big.  During consultation, I spend majority of my time with you trying to assess what your goals for your breasts.  There is a range of implants sizes that will be appropriate for your anatomy.  For most, it is between 300cc and 500cc.  I find placing implants in a sports bra the most helpful. I have been using various morphing programs for the last several years to help my patients choose their breast implant size for breast augmentation. Vectra is the program that I currently recommend.  With a few key strokes, I can change implants and you can see the difference in appearance with different breast implants.  As with all imaging system, you still have to have some imagination. Case 1 30 year old who is interested breast augmentation who was a B cup desires to be a full C cup. I used a 275cc Mentor MP+ silicone filled breast implant placed under the muscle through a fold incision. The center image is the Vectra Imaging System.     I do feel that the final result of her breast augmentation is much nicer than the Vectra Imaging System.  Size is very similar.  Some of the minor difference in the photo may be due to the fact that the arm position is different required by Vectra Imaging System.
