Revision Breast Implant Surgery

This 49 year old patient from Indianapolis was interested in revision breast augmentation with larger breast implants.  She didn’t like the shape or size of her breasts.  She did her research to find the best plastic surgeon who has expertise in breast augmentation revision surgeries as well as XL breast implants and found Dr. Pousti.  After multiple emails and phone discussions, she proceeded to book her surgery date.

Removal of ruptured implant

During the surgery, Dr. Pousti found that the patient had a ruptured silicone gel breast implant and so the implant was removed and the pocket cleaned out.

Patient Review:

A few years ago I found Dr. Pousti through a beautiful girl with a Body by Pousti t-shirt. This was right after I went to my first consult with a surgeon in Indianapolis. I wasn’t too satisfied with the consult, so I decided to pursue a consultation with Dr. Pousti. Being a double-board certified plastic surgeon definitely helped me make the decision. I began the process by emailing current photos along with my goal photos, and detailing what I hoped to achieve with the surgery. I received a response from the Doctor himself the very next day. I received pricing information and decided to move forward with the surgery. After arriving to San Diego, I met with the doctor and his staff in his office. My pre-operative visit was great. I declined trying on the sizers as I had already done that before. Not many surgeons have the vectra imaging so that was cool to see. The staff gave me all of my out of town patient information, as far as hotels and after care information which was great. Paula Weddle from Reliable Recovery was amazing! I just had my first post-op visit today. I feel greater than expected. There is some tightness which is expected. Had I not come to this surgeon, I would have never found out I had a ruptured implant, despite having two mammograms. I can’t wait to see my final outcome!

This 45 year old from Menifee California had been thinking about revision breast surgery for quite some time.  Her previous breast augmentation surgery (performed by a different surgeon) was performed many years ago and she was now ready to improve the bottoming out of her right breast and also increase breast implant size.

allograft

She was referred to Dr. Pousti by a friend and was very comfortable with Dr. Pousti’s experience with breast augmentation revision surgery as well as the XL breast implant size she wanted.

capsulorrhaphy

After examination and discussion of goals, it was determined that the internal bra (capsulorrhaphy) would be needed and ADM (also known as Strattice or AlloGraft) would be necessary on the right side for additional support.
