This 20 year old patient from Orange County was interested in breast augmentation surgery. She found Dr. Pousti when looking for a surgeon who was double board certified. She desired to improve her tuberous breasts.
Tuberous Breasts have a very narrow base and usually a long skin envelope. In the most severe cases of Tuberous Breast, a breast lift can be done through an incision around the areola, making the breast into a more rounded shape that the patient will be happy with. In many cases however, a lift is not necessary. The patient should be aware that the final result will take months to see and that they will need to be patient.
Markings were performed and a sizer was used for symmetry of the breasts.
Below is after the breast augmentation surgery.
This same patient came back and after several years of having breast implants and significant consideration, she decided to have her breast implants removed. The patient also desired to make the size of her areola smaller.
She knew Dr. Pousti was happy with his professionalism and expertise so she proceeded with surgery to remove her breast implants.
Below, the patient is post implant removal and areola reduction surgery.
