This 45 year old patient from Saint Louis, Missouri had breast augmentation performed by another surgeon in 1994, revisionary breast augmentation in 2000 and again in 2007. The patient was still unhappy with her results and the size/shape of her breasts. She consulted with her previous surgeon and another surgeon in her area but was not sure that they could give her the results she desired. The patient decided to do more research online to see if she could find a plastic surgeon experienced in breast reconstruction surgery. The patient came across Dr. Pousti’s website and was impressed with his revisionary breast surgery experience and the experience he had with extra large implants. The patient was not happy with the current breast implant placement on her chest wall, she had rippling and she wanted a larger implants.
The patient saw Dr. Pousti’s Fly in for Surgery page and found that Dr. Pousti tries his best to make it convenient for his patients to fly in for surgery and decided to travel from Missouri to California for her breast procedures.
Prior to her revisionary breast surgery measurements and markings are made and discussed in detail with the patient. In order to give this patient her desired look Dr. Pousti planned on performing breast pocket correction and replacing patients previous breast implants with saline overfilled breast implants.
The red arrow indicate where the patient desires more fullness. To meet the patients size goals and give her the fullness she is looking for 800cc Saline implants overfilled to 1460ccs were used in each breast.
