This 46 year old patient from San Diego previously had breast augmentation surgery performed by another surgeon but had been thinking about revision breast surgery for many years. After doing her research, she saw that Dr. Pousti had extensive experience with breast augmentation revision surgery. She was confident with his expertise and proceeded to schedule a consultation to be evaluated.
The patient’s breasts were firm from the capsular contracture (excessive scar tissue) and she was not happy with the placement of the breast implants on her chest wall.
Markings were performed prior to surgery and the revision breast surgery with overfilled XL breast implants was discussed in detail with the patient. The “arrows” above show where the patient wants “more fullness”.
Above are the breast implants that were removed during the procedure.
