VECTRA® 3D has raised the standard of care for breast consultations, and at this point you would be at a disadvantage if you didn't have it. There is a tremendous leap of faith that patients take before having surgery, and VECTRA helps bridge that leap by giving them a window into what they are going to look like. It's the best communication tool that exists.
Dr. Louis Bucky was an early adopter of 3D imaging and knows from experience the value it brings to a plastic surgery practice. With 20 employees in two locations, he personally performs over 1,000 surgeries a year including aesthetic and reconstructive procedures for breast, body and face. So for him, the VECTRA XT Face and Body system was an obvious choice.
"This has been extremely useful in breast augmentation and mastopexy. It allows patients to become directly involved in the planning process, and because of this, they have less anxiety and are more comfortable that they will be pleased with the results. And because VECTRA's 3D simulations give them an accurate view of how they will look after surgery, I have fewer concerns about implied results."
Dr. Bucky earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School, followed by general and plastic surgery residencies at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA. He then completed a Fellowship in Breast Cancer Reconstruction at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, as well as a Fellowship in Craniofacial Surgery at Miami Children's Hospital. He is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
