The patient was interested in revisionary breast surgery for many years and decided to proceed with surgery after meeting Dr. Pousti.  The patient had significant encapsulation in both breasts and experienced breast pain in her right breast.

Due to encapsulation, the patient was unhappy with the results of her surgery.  The patient described to Dr. Pousti that she just wanted to look natural and have some fullness and cleavage. Markings were performed the morning of surgery, and the planned procedure was drawn out in detail.
