The patient researched for a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and found Dr. Pousti on the Internet. The patient expressed that she did not have any specific problems other then she wanted larger breasts. In order to achieve her desired look, Dr. Pousti used saline breast implants filled to 625cc on both breasts, made by Mentor Corporation.

The patient is now 2-years post op breast surgery and is very pleased with her results. After she has healed and recovered from her breast implant surgery, the patient decided to have tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty). The patient was so impressed with Dr. Pousti’s work on her breasts, and wanted him to perform her tummy tuck surgery.
