Silicone Gel Breast Implants for Pectus Excavatum

Click here to see full details on this patient

This 26 year old patient from Murrieta, California, was interested in breast augmentation surgery and breast lifting. She desired to camouflage her pectus excavatum. Pectus Excavatum, also known as funnel chest, the sternum (breastbone) is depressed relative to the rest of the chest wall. Breast implants can be used to camouflage mild to moderate pectus excavatum. After her consultation with double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Pousti, the patient decided to proceed with surgery.

The markings were performed the morning of surgery and all the patients questions were answered. Because of the breast asymmetry, different sized implants were used

Below, the patient is shown immediately post-surgery and has 495cc (right) and 434cc (left) silicone gel breast implants.

This 30 year old patient from Alaska had been interested in breast surgery for quite some time.  She not only wanted larger, more “perky” breasts but she wanted to address her breast asymmetry as well.  She decided to fly to San Diego to have her breast augmentation and breast lift procedure performed by Dr. Pousti because of his expertise with breast surgery procedures.before breast augmentation with lift

She was referred to Dr. Pousti from a satisfied previous patient. At her consultation, she met with Dr. Pousti and learned more about the procedure she was interested in, as well as viewing hundreds of before and after pictures of Dr. Pousti’s work. She felt confident in his double board certification and scheduled her surgery.

Dr. Pousti discussed her breast asymmetry and determined that he would need to perform a benelli breast lift (incision around the areola) on her right side but a more extensive breast lift on her left side to achieve as much symmetry as possible.  The patient understood that perfect. Her markings were performed the night before surgery and were reviewed and discussed again the following morning.

Patient Testimonial:

Dr. Pousti and his staff are the best thing that ever happened to me … my self-esteem is at a point where I didn’t even know existed. I knew from the day that I came to see him that I was at the right place. Dr. Pousti and his staff are all very nice and professional, they all took the time to answer my questions and made me feel very comfortable. I can now enjoy my intimate life without being embarrassed about my saggy, ugly boobs. I went from a B to a double DD thanks to Dr. Pousti because I was unsure of what I wanted and trusted him and his expertise.
