Note: This 24-year-old patient from Spain contacted Dr. Pousti for revision surgery. She had her first surgery in Spain and ended up with symmastia of the breasts. Symmastia - commonly referred to as breadloafing or uni-boob , occurs when two implants touch one another in the center of the chest. If the horizontal muscle that is connected to the sternum and goes across the implant is cut during surgery, then the implant can move toward the middle of the chest. Symmastia results from overly aggressive attempts to alter chest wall anatomy trying to increase cleavage in patients. She wanted a good cosmetic surgeon in San Diego who was board certified and found Dr. Pousti. She has just recently gone through symmastia reconstruction and is only 2 days post-op. She has 800 cc silicone gel implants made by the Mentor Corporation.
Surgeon: Dr. Tom Pousti of San Diego, CA
