The patient is status post breast augmentation surgery in 1989, performed by another surgeon. Due to encapsulation (scar tissue), the patient was unhappy with the results of her previous surgery and wanted breast augmentation revision surgery.  After many years of living with the complications, the patient decided to research the best Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in San Diego and found Dr. Pousti on the Internet. The patient reviewed many of Dr. Pousti’s before and after pictures and decided to meet with Dr. Pousti.  During her consultation, the patient was able to speak with patients who also had revisionary breast surgery with Dr. Pousti. Impressed by Dr. Pousti’s experience, the patient scheduled her surgery.

Markings were performed.  The arrows show how the right breast pocket will be moved higher.

Patient Testimonial: 
I had my first breast augmentation in 1989 over 20 years ago. I didn't have any breast tissue so the surgeon would only put in small implants to keep a more natural look. I went from an AA to barely a B cup and had a capsular contracture on the left side and it became hard and misshapen. I lived with that for many, many years. Then...fast-forward 2009. After many hours on the internet researching plastic surgeons, reading testimonials, comparing before and after pictures, I choose Dr. Pousti because of his vast experience in removing and replacing of implants and his excellent reputation. Although I did make three appointments to get separate opinions from different surgeons, Dr. Pousti did what the other two said couldn't be done. I wanted silicone implants that would give me a full C. One doctor told me I would have to have two surgeries, one to take out the old implants and another to put in new implants after the first surgery healed.... the other surgeon wasn't going to clean out the scar tissue from the old implants...crazy Girls do your homework and ask questions I knew I wanted Dr. Pousti to do the surgery from what I found on the internet but I just wanted to get a couple of different opinions that's why I saved him for the last consultation. I am so happy with how I look now and I would recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone thinking of undergoing this procedure or any other. His staff is also very caring, the girls in the office are great.
