Breast Implant Settling

Before & After Photos: Breast Augmentation


A patient of Pousti Plastic Surgery got creative with paper mache sculptures of her breasts before breast augmentation surgery and after breast augmentation surgery.


Breast Augmentation is performed to increase the size and fullness of the breast. Women whose breasts are disproportionately small, or whose breasts have sagged or “deflated” after childbirth, or who have unevenly-shaped or sized breasts, are candidates for the procedure. At times, it is necessary to lower the inframammary fold to achieve the results we are looking for. If the breasts droop too much, a “lifting” procedure may be required in addition to, or instead of the augmentation.

The location of the incisions, under/over the muscle, breast size, choice of implant type and shape are custom designed for each patient based on their needs and their body and breast types.

Patient Testimonial:

I reviewed and interviewed many doctors in orange county, and San Diego. I found Dr. POUSTI to be the one. Went for my consultation and was very pleased with the staff and doctor and also was able to meet with other Patents to talk about their experiences and outcome. My husband and I knew after meeting with Dr. POUSTI that he was the one. Also told him about my right implant that I was concerned about possible problem that occurred a year ago that did not show up on any Mammogram. I scheduled my surgery the following week. I’m so pleased with outcome and how Dr. POUSTI listened to both my husband and I desires for the perfect shape and size. My new twins look amazing. Going from 550 cc to 800 cc silicone under muscle. As it turned out the right side had ruptured and he was able to clean it up. Anyone who wants the best of care should setup a consultation.

Dr. POUSTI is one of the best surgeons in San Diego, Ca. He is very Knowledgeable and talented in his work and truly listens to you. Also his staff is very caring and the follow up is fantastic. Also has patients flying in from all over the world. He is dedicated to his work and clients.

Patient Testimonial:

Before Surgery

After 2 kids and years of research and a lot of thought I decided I wanted to go ahead and proceed with a breast augmentation. I’ve heard a lot about Dr. Pousti from a friend who is getting the same procedure done in which whom was referred as well from women who have already had the breast augmentation surgery by Dr. Pousti and are very happy with their results. With this said, I set up a consultation with the Doctor and his staff, all were wonderful answering most of my questions prior to even having to ask them.  Dr. Pousti is extremely easy to talk to and the staff are warm and welcoming.  He is EXTREMELY PATIENT as I had many concerns and asked the same questions quite a few times and assured me every time I would be 100% okay.  He put my mind at ease!   I look forward to having my surgery and even more excited to see the end result!

Immediately After Surgery

Dr. Pousti,
I just had surgery today,  and I can’t begin to explain to you the amazing staff at the clinic.  There are NO words good enough to describe them ALL so ill say they were simply wonderful, so caring and EXTREMELY attentive. Honestly one of the best hospital experiences I’ve EVER had.  And thank you so much for being so patient with me and so caring.  I could go on and on about how calm and peaceful recovery was, checking on me FREQUENTLY and just an amazing group and overall experience.  Couldn’t have been this way without you and your surgical staff. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

The Surgical Procedure

The breast augmentation procedure takes approximately two hours. Placement of the implant is usually centered on the nipple-areola. Often, placement above or below the muscle is decided on an individual basis. Likewise, the incisions used to place the implant vary with patient preference and anatomy. The surgery is performed in a state of the art outpatient surgical center under general anesthesia. The size and type of implant to be used, along with their relative advantages will be discussed with your doctor at the pre-operative appointment.


Note that incision lines that are “puckered” heal smooth.

What To Expect After The Surgery

Rest in bed is the order of the day, along with plenty of fluids and no aggravation. During the first week, a brassiere will be fitted and you will be permitted to shower, perhaps as quickly as two to three days post-op. Initially, the breasts will appear to be slightly higher than normal. Over three to six weeks the implant will descend to a more natural position. Also, the chest will feel somewhat sore for the first few days. This should abate very quickly, and by the end of the first week you should be very comfortable.

Resumption of Physical Activities

After one week of resting at home, “normal activities” such as driving, working, socializing may be resumed, except NO exercise or sports for two to six weeks. It is very important to follow these guidelines, since it is possible to shift the implants to an abnormal position if exercise or physical activity is resumed too soon.
