Case Number 2085: Breast Lift Surgery – Breast Implant Removal

This  is a 42-year old patient from San Diego, California who is 5-years post-op breast augmentation surgery.

10.26.09 003


Although the patient was extremely happy with the results of her surgery, the patient explained she has changed her life style and is now exercising daily and running marathons. The patient wanted Dr. Pousti to perform her surgery to remove her breast implants.

During her examination, Dr. Pousti suggested that a breast lift (mastopexy) would be necessary, because of the volume lost in the breasts after removing the breast implants. After discussing the risks and complications of breast lifting surgery, the patient decided to proceed with surgery.

Measurements and marking were carefully made prior to surgery.  THe “x” is where the nipple-areola complexes would be moved to.

Patient Testimonial: 
On August 5th, 2004 I had breast augmentation surgery - performed by Dr. Pousti. The results were fantastic. When my husband got his first look at my new breasts he said, Dr. Pousti really knows what he's doing, doesn't he A few years later, I started exercising more and more and started running. For me, having large breasts and running didn't go together. I wanted to run more seriously and maybe even do a triathlon and I started to feel that the implants weren't going to fit into my new lifestyle. I struggled with the decision of getting smaller implants, but ultimately decided to have my implants removed - along with a breast lift. There was never a question about where I would have the surgery done. My husband and I call Dr. Pousti Dr. Perfect. In early November 2009, he gave me exactly what I asked and hoped for and I'm very happy with the results. My new breasts are lighter and perky - much better for running. I feel like I'm in my 20's again. For a 42-year-old that's pretty awesome After spending some time recovering, I'm starting to run again and planning my all of my running for the year. Thank you to Dr. Pousti and his staff for taking good care of me You're the best
