  Pousti Plastic Surgery BBB Business Review











 

Change In Size / Type of Implant

Some patients choose to change their breast size after undergoing breast augmentation surgery. The most common “complaint” that patients have after breast augmentation surgery is that they “wish that they had gone bigger”. After a year or so, they may decide to remove their current implants and replace them with larger breast implants. Other patients may have gone larger when they were younger and are now ready to have a more natural look so they remove their larger implants and replace them with smaller implants. Depending on the reduction in size, the patient may need a breast lift to accommodate for the extra skin from when the breasts were larger – this is assessed on an individual basis.

Patients frequently decided to change the type of their implant as well. The most common change is going from saline to silicone. These patient choose to go from saline to silicone because they have rippling, want more of a natural feel, or just as a personal choice. We also have patients that switch from silicone to saline, most of these patients are interested in XL implants, which involves overfilling saline implants.

The Surgical Procedure
In order to change the size of breast implants, Dr. Pousti would remove the current breast implants and replace them with either smaller or larger breast implants. The procedure can take about 1 hour, as long as there are no other complications. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Pousti takes his time in the operating room to make sure that he does what he can to achieve the patient’s results.

What To Expect After Surgery
Patients do not experience much pain after this procedure since there is already a pocket for the implants and the pectoralis muscle has already been stretched. Recovery time is minimal, however, they may experience some discomfort if larger implants are used. Patients are still required to wear the surgical bra for support, but not for the full 4 weeks.

Resumption of Physical Activities
Driving may be resumed in 1-2 weeks.
Non-contact sports in 3 weeks.
Contact sports in 6 weeks.
