This 37 year old patient from San Diego,California was interested in breast augmentation surgery and wanted a “very large” breast implants.
She researched and found double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Pousti, who performed her breast implant surgery and placed 700cc breast implants to achieve her goals. She was very pleased with her results for many, many years.
After many years, the patient’s lifestyle changed and she decided that she wanted to reduce the size of her breast implants. Because of her confidence in Dr.Pousti, she returned to his office to discuss breast implant size reduction.
After discussion of options available to the patient, she and Dr. Pousti decided to proceed with an in office deflation of the breast implants to allow the skin to “bounce back” as much as possible. After the breast implants are deflated, the patient and Dr. Pousti can see what will be needed to achieve the patients goals. Below you see the patient with the deflated saline breast implants.
Dr. Pousti and the patient decided that breast lifting will be necessary as well as placement of a smaller, silicone gel breast implant to achieve the patient’s goals.
Dr. Pousti is performing markings and measurements the day before her surgery to prepare for surgery.
Here is the patient directly before surgery with completed markings.
