This 28-year old patient from Oceanside, California was interested in breast augmentation surgery and inverted nipple repair. The patient found Dr. Pousti on the Internet after doing extensive research for an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
During her consultation, that patient expressed to Dr. Pousti how she was unhappy with the appearance of her asymmetric (right breast larger then left breast), Dr. Pousti suggested a breast lift (mastopexy) on the right breast. The patient knew that Dr. Pousti is experienced in complexed breast cases and knew he was the best surgeon for her.
Markings were made the morning of surgery in detail, Dr. Pousti explained to the patient that he would correct her right breast with limited breast lift (breast lift with an incision around the area only).
Saline breast implants filled to 440cc in the right breast and 395cc in the left breast to ensure as much symmetry as possible in both breasts.
