Breast Shape Deformity and Revision Surgery


Repair of Bad Scarring and Breast Shape Deformity


Article and Photos by Dr. Tom Pousti

This 37 year old patient from Canada found Dr. Pousti when she and her husband were looking for the best plastic surgeon for her breast augmentation revision. She had previously had breast augmentation surgery performed by another surgeon but had “implant exposure” and had to have the left breast implant removed. After 6 months-1 year, she underwent augmentation of the left breast but had very poor results.

As you can see in the picture, the patient had scar tissue that changed the shape of her left breast. The patient did not like the deformity and wanted to get it fixed but couldn’t find a surgeon who felt comfortable operating on her.

This patient wanted the area that was scarred down corrected as well as her breasts lifted (mastopexy) and much larger implants. Dr. Pousti discussed the potential risks of mastopexy surgery with XL breast implants and suggested to the patient that they proceed in 2 stages.

The first surgery would be to correct the scarring of the left breast and to perform mastopexy surgery (keeping the patient’s current implants in place).

The patient returned 7 months after her initial mastopexy surgery to have her breast implants removed and replaced with overfilled saline breast implants. To achieve the results she wanted, Dr. Pousti used 800cc saline breast implants and overfilled them to 1200cc on the right side and 1250cc on the left side.
