Breast Augmentation with Benelli Breast Lift for Tuberous Breast Correction

Click here to see full details on this patient

This 26 year old patient was interested in correcting her tuberous breasts (wanted to increase breast size as well as shape).  Tuberous breasts are also known as constricted breasts. This deformity is usually distinguished by deficiency of breast tissue and skin, rupture of breast tissue around the areola and constriction of the breast base. This deformity is generally classified into three categories; minor constriction, consisting of noticeable differences in the size and shape of the breasts; moderate constriction, consisting of a more significant lack of breast tissue as well as differences in size and shape of breast; and severe constriction, consisting of major deficiency of breast tissue and severe abnormalities of the shape and size of the breast.

She started researching and asking her friends, and was referred to Dr. Tom Pousti for breast enhancement surgery. Although this is a challenging deformity, it is possible to improve and repair through procedures such as breast augmentation, mastopexy and tissue expansion. Dr. Pousti does what is possible to achieve symmetry and take into account the patient’s wishes and desired outcome of the shape and size of the breast.

The patients’ goals as well as the procedure to improve her breast size and also to”round out” the breast shape was discussed prior to surgery and reviewed again the morning of surgery.

Revisionary breast surgery with use of Strattice and Internal Bra

Click here to see full details on this patient

This 34 year old patient from Riverside County had previously had breast implant surgery (performed by a different plastic surgeon) but with time was no longer happy with the shape and/or size of her breasts.  She started researching breast augmentation revision surgery and found that Dr. Pousti has extensive experience with this procedure.

DSC02857

The patient wanted larger breast size and rounder breast shape. She also did not like that her breasts “fell off to the side” when she laid on her back.  She also wanted to reduce the size of her areola as well.

DSC02862

After evaluation, it was determined that she was a good candidate for exchanging her breast implants for larger breast implants in addition to internal suture work (internal bra) and areola reduction surgery.  The use of AlloGraft was also discussed for additional support for the internal capsule work.

Immediate results of removing the patient’s 600cc HP saline implants and replacing with 700cc ultra HP silicone gel breast implants as well as internal bra, areola reduction and AlloGraft Use.  The patient is extremely happy with her results.  She understands that the “puckering” of the areola incision will flatten out and improve as things heal.

 

Patient Testimonial:

“Just had revisionary surgery feb 11th. After 12 year old high profile saline implants it was time to redo the girls. I was in need of a lift bad my implants would fall into my armpits and were so heavy in bathing suits and some bras I needed more support. I wanted a new dr. Not the same dr that did my first BA so after extensive research I came across dr Pousti who I decided to do my revision. He suggested a full lift which I immediately turned that idea down because I don’t do well with scars, he was honest with me tho and I appreciate that so after talking over alternative options we agreed on pocket revision with internal bra and alloderm thro the nipple with an areola reduction. I’m 11 days post op and everything seems good so far, no major pain and no pain meds needed the only thing that is unfortunate is that I contacted the flu with a nasty cough so coughing of course hurts my chest but so far my out come looks nice and I can’t wait to get all the dressings off to see the outcome:) I can not say enough about Dr.Pousti and his entire staff! They are all so amazing and so informative. Dr.Pousti is such a sincere honest person, he’s straight forward and I love how honest he is! His entire staff has been so kind and patient with everything. They have called me pretty much everyday since surgery and are always there when I need them! Surgery day was smooth sailing! I can’t say enough good things about Pousti and his staff they’re all so patient, they reall take there time with you and make you feel more like a family member than a patient, all the girls I’ve dealt Heather, Helen, Vanessa, and Daisy are so sweet and really kind hearted! Heather has the warmest smile and was so comforting during my pre op and in surgery she really made me feel put in good hands. I love how personable dr. Pousti is and how he calls an speaks to his patients before and after surgery. Definitely the best dr and staff I’ve ever been too!”

This 22 year old patient from Oceanside, California previously had a breast augmentation but unfortunately, after a year passed the implants did not settle into the breast pockets correctly so she decided to proceed with revision breast surgery.

breast lift

implant exchange

Dr.Pousti suggested revisionary surgery to dissect the breast pockets for better breast shape and in order to help the breast implants settle. He also recommended circum areolar breast lifting to improve the position of the nipple-areala.  The patient also decided to increase her breast implant size while she was in the operating room.

Markings and measurements are performed the morning of surgery in front of a full length mirror. Any last minute questions and/or concerns are also answered.
