This 33 mother breast fed her children for 8 years and now was thinking about breast augmentation surgery. She wanted her breasts more “perky” and “full” and was looking for the best plastic surgeon to achieve her goals.
After researching online, she found Dr. Pousti’s extensive expertise with breast surgery and came in for examination. Breast lifting in addition to breast implants was discussed with the patient.
Markings and measurements are performed prior to surgery and the procedure discussed in detail.
Tailor tacking technique (above) is performed to determine how much skin can be removed safely during the mastopexy procedure.
Above photos show the patient immediately after breast augmentation / mastopexy surgery. Notice the difference in size, shape and position of the breasts. Below photo shows the tapes that will be placed on the incisions and kept on for 4-6 weeks post op as the incisions heal.
