Case Number : Abdominoplasty / XL Breast Implants

This 27 year old from Australia, California was interested in an abdominoplasty procedure after extreme weight loss left her with excess skin in her abdomen. She previously had an arm lift and extra large breast augmentation performed by Dr. Pousti and was extremely satisfied with her results. She wanted to increase her breast size and fullness and decided to have her extra large breast implants replaced with larger overfilled saline implants. After communicating with Dr. Pousti through emails and phone calls, she decided to fly to California to have her tummy tuck and breast re-augmentation surgery performed.

Abdominoplasty

Dr. Pousti met with the patient prior to surgery to perform markings and discuss the patient’s goals. Measurements of the abdomen and breasts were carefully taken to achieve as much symmetry as possible. The patient brought in several goal pictures representing the size breasts she wanted to achieve. These pictures are referred to throughout the entire procedure.

Tummy Tuck

The morning of surgery, measurements were checked several times prior to proceeding to the operating room.

Abdominoplasty

The patient wanted to increase her breast size to achieve more upper, outer, and inner fullness.

Abdominoplasty

After weight gain/loss, the patient was left with excess abdominal skin and separated abdominal muscles. Dr. Pousti used internal sutures to carefully bring the muscles together, creating an internal corset.
