This 34 year old patient from San Diego, California was interested in a breast augmentation surgery with a breast lift. The patient was unhappy with the size and shape of her breasts as well as the “droopiness”. She did not like how large her areola were and wanted to reduce the size of her areola. She found Dr. Pousti on the internet and decided to meet with him in person to discuss her options.
The patient and Dr. Pousti decided that breast lifting and breast implants would benefit the patient in achieving her goals. This patient wanted more “perky” breasts will a fuller volume “on top”. She felt comfortable with both Dr. Pousti’s credentials and experience to go forward with both surgeries. The risks and complications were explained to the patient followed by measurements and markings.
Dr. Pousti carefully made markings to refer to during surgery to achieve symmetry.
The patient proceeded to surgery where markings were reinforced prior to starting the procedure. The entire process was explained again to the patient and any questions or concerns she had were addressed.
Below, the picture shows the right breast after the mastopexy and breast implant procedures were performed. There was a significant improvement in the right breast compared to the left.
