I never have any surgery in my life until the age...

I never have any surgery in my life until the age of 39. After having two kids, I lost my breast volume because of breast feeding. So I decided to have my breast augmentation. On November 2012, I had a local Doctor preformed my BA results both breasts had capsular contracture in a few weeks. April 2013, I had a second surgery to have my breast revision and also removed the capsules from both breasts. Unfortunately, my breasts developed capsular contracture again with in a short period of time. I felt so frustrated. I lost my trusts and my hopes with this doctor. I decided not to go back to see him again.

So I have been doing a research and I found Dr. Pousti website. After viewing thousands of before and after patients' pictures preformed by Dr. Pousti. I called the office and made an appointment for consultation. Because of my history, capsular contracture developed very early after surgery. After Dr. Pousti examined my breasts and explained the benefit vs the risk of having another breast revision . He recommended me to have my breast revision with placing Alloderm, removing bilateral capsules and exchanging new implants.

December 2013, I had my breast revision done by Dr. Pousti. I am now only two weeks post op. I feel great and healthy. I am very satisfied with the way my breasts look. They are so soft, fullness and I also have a beautiful cleavage. I am so happy with my new breasts and new look.

I believe that if there is problem it always can be solved. I am now 6 weeks pots op breast revision with Alloderm. So far everything is coming along.
