Case Number 1800: Breast Revision Surgery – Extra Large Implants

The patient did some extensive research for a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstuctive Surgeon and found Dr. Pousti on the Internet. The patient explained that she wanted her breast implants to be as big, round, and full as possible. 3.26.09 001

The patient underwent areola reduction surgery at the same time as the revision breast surgery.

Dr. Pousti achieved her goal look of more fullness and cleavage by using saline breast implants and filled to 850cc in both breasts, made by Allergan Corporation.

Patient Testimonial: 
I had my first breast augmentation lift in may 2008. i had 600cc silicone high profile under the muscle implants. i got to size 32DD but i felt i wasnt big enough. those first implants were too evenly proportionate with my height and weight, and instantly i knew i wanted to go bigger. plus my breasts werent as round as i wanted they were more cylinder shaped with little inner and outter cleavage. almost a year later i had my second breast augmentation and an areola reduction, this time with dr. pousti. i got 800cc saline moderate profile under the muscle implants.....but the catch were that these implants were overfilled to 1130cc's. i went almost twice as big with my second surgery. i am now a 32DDDD, or in short, a 32G. i asked for more inner and outter cleavage, which i got. i am much rounder and fuller than i was after my first augmentation. recovery was much shorter the second time around. after about a week i was able to shower and dress myself with no assistance it was about 2 weeks with my first surgery . i only took prescription percoset the day i had my surgery the following days i only took ibuprofen. my back really hurt the first month due to the extra weight in my chest, so i would take half a percoset for that. i originally wanted to stick with silicone in case there was a future leak, but i was told that oversized implants are only available in saline. i was nervous at first about the overfilling of the implants with saline and all the complications that might happen and having it potentially pop and leak and then ill have one boob and one leaky, wilty boob....but dr. pousti and his staff reassured me that would not happen. massaging was difficult at first. i am not sure if it is because they were overfilled or because they were filled with saline, which is harder than silicone, or for both reasons. the first couple weeks were tough and they were hard. i thought theyd never soften. but after a while they did, and now they are as soft as my silicones were. i still massage them every day to keep the pocket loose. if i dont, they look and feel constricted . i do see myself going bigger in the future. dr. pousti went as big as he could. my one dissatisfaction is that my areolas are still a little bigger than what i wanted. i hope in a few years ill be able to go larger again with 800cc's, or that the market will make larger, custom implants.
