The 23 year old patient from Colorado Springs, Colorado was very unhappy with the results of her breast augmentation surgery, which was performed by a surgeon near her hometown. She decided to look into plastic surgeons that were experienced with breast augmentation revisionary surgeries and came across Dr. Pousti’s website.
After traveling to California and meeting with Dr. Pousti she immediately felt comfortable with him and decided to proceed with revisionary breast surgery. The patient met with Dr. Pousti quite a few times before her procedure to review the breast revision in detail.
Markings of the patient’s breasts are performed prior to surgery to indicate changes that are needed. The red arrows marked indicate where the patient wants more fullness and helps Dr. Pousti determine where the breast pocket revision needs to take place. Once these markings are completed the previous breast implants are removed through small incisions along the areola (usually the same incision that was originally used will be used again to prevent more scars).
The patient is placed in an upright position several times during the procedure to ensure symmetry is achieved. Once the old implants are removed and breast pocket correction is performed, sizers are set in place. These sizers help determine the size of the implant Dr. Pousti will use and also help him see what the potential results will look like before anything is finalized.
To meet the patient’s size goals and meet her desired look Saline Overfill implants were used. The patient has 1,110 cc on both sides.
The patient is a extremely happy with her revisionary breast surgery results.
