This 64 year old patient had breast implants for many years an was now experiencing capsular contracture (excessive scar tissue) that was making the breast implants “hard” and uncomfortable.
She researched to find the best plastic surgeon to help her with her breast revision surgery. She saw Dr.Pousti’s expertise was with breast augmentation revision surgery and so she proceeded to set up a consultation.
After discussion of goals, it was determined that the best option would be to remove old breast implants, remove capsule and scar tissue and replace with new silicone gel breast implants.
