Case Number 4428: Congenital Symmastia, Pectus Excavatum

This 25 year old patient with significant chest wall asymmetry had been thinking of breast surgery for quite some time.  She had congenital symmastia, pectus excavatum and breast asymmetry.  She also wanted her nipples reconstructed.  She was searching for the best plastic surgeon to help her achieve her goals.breast revision

You can see when she is turned to her right side, the chest wall is depressed significantly.

After meeting with Dr. Pousti, she felt comfortable that he had experience in the areas that she needed help and so she proceeded with breast surgery.  Markings and measurements were made prior to surgery and then re-checked the morning of surgery.

The congenital symmastia (cleavage area) was treated with liposuction.

intra-operative breast revision surgery

Due to the severe chest wall asymmetry, different sizes and profiles of implants were used in each breast to achieve as much symmetry as possible.  The implants used will help camouflage the patient’s pectus excavatum.

Her left nipple was inverted and her right nipple was reconstructed (she previously had surgery on the right side).

Supportive Dressings are placed down the midline to help the skin adhere down. This support will be worn for weeks.
