This 51-year old patient from Carlsbad, California (Northern San Diego County) wanted breast implant revision surgery.
Notice the bottoming out of the right breast implant and the capsular contracture of the left breast implant.
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.
In order to achieve her desired look, her previous breast implants were removed and re-augmented with 533cc silicone gel breast implants made by Allergan Corporation.
In the operating room, Dr. Pousti takes his time to achieve the best results.
The Scar Tissue was removed from each breast.
The patient is now 2 years post-op surgery and is extremely happy she went through with surgery. She understands that everything will take time to heal and the implants will settle with time as well.
