Pousti Plastic Surgery Announces New Surgical Approach Involving Ultra High Profile Breast Implants For Patients With Tuberous Breasts

Dr. Tom Pousti

Patients from all over the United States and even throughout the world are seeking out Dr. Tom Pousti, a Double Board Certified veteran specializing in tuberous breast correction. As Chief Surgeon of Pousti Plastic Surgery in San Diego, Dr. Pousti has completed countless procedures helping patients achieve greater confidence and their perfect physical appearance after suffering from tuberous breasts.

Tuberous breasts, known by other names including constricted breasts, tubular breasts, snoopy breasts, herniated areolar complexes, conical breasts, lower pole hypoplasia and hypo plastic breasts is the result of a congenital deformity. There is usually a deficiency of breast tissue and skin as well as constriction of the breast base and “puffy areola”. This deformity is generally classified into three categories; minor constriction, consisting of noticeable differences in the size and shape of the breasts; moderate constriction, consisting of a more significant lack of breast tissue as well as differences in size and shape of breast; and severe constriction, consisting of major deficiency of breast tissue and severe abnormalities of the shape and size of the breast.

Although this is a challenging deformity for many women across the United States, it is possible to improve and repair through procedures such as breast augmentation, mastopexy and tissue expansion. In general, when a benelli breast lift is performed to address the constricted breasts and puffy areola, this tends to flatten the breast profile. Chief Surgeon, Dr. Tom Pousti has found that the use of high profile and/or ultra high profile breast implants can help these patients in addressing the breast constriction issues while also providing patients with a nice breast profile and result.

According to Dr. Tom Pousti, “Some patients will need to have their constricted breasts addressed in stages, with the first stage involving the breast lift while addressing the breast constriction, and then returning to the operating room for placement of breast implants down the line to reduce blood flow issues related to the surgery.”

Dr. Tom Pousti, MD, F.A.C.S, is the chief surgeon and medical director of Pousti Plastic Surgery. He is double board certified in both general surgery, and plastic and reconstruction surgery. Dr. Pousti completed his plastic surgery training at Harvard University and trained with expert and world-renowned surgeons at the Brigham and Woman's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts.

Pousti Plastic Surgery specializes in various types of cosmetic procedures, including breast augmentation, breast revision, fat reduction, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, and other types of revisionary surgery. Dr. Pousti sees patients from across the United States and around the world. He believes in individualizing every surgery to meet and exceed each patient's expectations.
