is your calculation static or dynamic? i think your problem changes to dynamic as your pressure input will vary with the time after adding the sensor. Instead of using sensor maybe you can give your pressure as a function of time and check the time when the deformation is 1 mm then you can cut the pressure at that time in your function input.
as i know when you choose your objective as minimum compliance, minimum compliance means finding the maximum stiffness. you set your optimum level by playing with the constraints. this how i use. if you define a material model with plasticity then you can see plastic deformation behaviour as well in optistruct. i hope i understood your problem.
