If you are one the thousands of people each year considering aesthetic plastic surgery, Salinas Valley Plastic Surgery has some good news for you. Recent advances in three dimensional (3D) photography combined with revolutionary new software, allow prospective patients to preview what they will look like as the result of breast augmentation, facial procedures, and more, well in advance of any surgery.


Both the VECTRA® 3D camera and Sculptor software which make this possible were developed by Canfield Imaging Systems of Fairfield, NJ, the world’s leading provider of medical photography systems. The process starts with a VECTRA® 3D session which produces a three-dimensional photograph of the patient. Then, using Sculptor software, the surgeon is able to simulate the expected results of a variety of aesthetic procedures.


“My patients absolutely love this,” said Dr. Romans. “For the first time, they’re able to see a 3D picture of themselves with their new look. Because it’s in 3D, I can rotate their picture to any viewpoint and they can really examine the desired result. We can make changes here and there and agree on a final look in advance, and this truly helps them make a decision”.

Salinas Valley Plastic Surgery has been serving Salinas since 1973 offering professional, personalized medical care in plastic surgery. Dr. Romans and Dr. Silk are Board Certified Plastic Surgeons and are available for consultations by appointment at (831) 758-2746.
