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.
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT BREAST AUGMENTATION
BEARS ANY RELATIONSHIP TO BREAST CANCER.

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
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.
