Case Number 2060: Breast Revision Surgery- Correction of Symmastia and Bottoming Out

This 29-year old patient from Las Vegas, Nevada was interested in revision breast surgery, the patient is post breast augmentation surgery in 2004 with 350cc, textured anatomical shape, silicone gel breast implants.

Due to “bottoming out” (inferior migration of the implants) and “symmastia” (occurs when two implants touch one another in the center of the chest) the patient was unhappy with the results of her previous surgery (performed by another surgeon).

The patient researched for the most experienced Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon to perform her revisionary breast surgery and found Dr. Pousti. After reading outstanding reviews and looking through before and after pictures of countless patients with the same complications, she knew she had found the best plastic surgeon for her breast augmentation revision surgery. Immediately after several consultations via e-mail and phone, the patient came to San Diego to meet with Dr. Pousti and scheduled for surgery.
