This 29-year old patient from San Diego, California was very unhappy with the asymmetry of her breasts and the appearance her chest wall. The patient has a congenital condition called pectus excavatum.

The patient wanted breast augmentation surgery to hide the appearance of her mild chest concavity. After several consultations with Dr. Pousti, she knew with his experience with Pectus Excavatum, the patient wanted Dr. Pousti to perform her breast augmentation surgery.

O.R. 3.18.10 010

O.R. 3.18.10 006

The concaved areas are marked visibly as a guide for Dr. Pousti to create the breast pockets for the implants to sit naturally.

O.R. 3.18.10 014

Dr. Pousti sits the patient up and down through out surgery to make sure everything possible is performed to achieve the most symmetric look.

O.R. 3.18.10 015

In order to achieve her desired look and fullness, the patient’s left breast inflammatory fold would be lowered to match the right breast and moderate plus profile silicone-gel breast implants were used, 275cc in the right breast and 250cc in the left breast to insure symmetry.

The patient is now 4-days post-op surgery and happy with her new appearance. Although the chest concavity does not change, with breast augmentation the Pectus Excavatum can be masked.
