Dr. Tom Pousti is a highly skilled tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) specialist. Abdominoplasty, also known as the “tummy tuck,” is an operation performed to remove excess fatty tissue and skin folds in the mid and lower abdominal region and to tighten up the abdominal wall. These procedures range from minor removal of hanging skin (a mini-tummy tuck) to a major abdominoplasty where the entire abdomen is tightened. It is designed to remove only as much excess skin and fatty tissue as is practical and safe. Stretch marks, where possible, will be removed along with the excess skin. However, stretch marks on the remaining abdominal skin cannot be removed.
Male patient – Extended tummy tuck & gynecomastia/ breast reduction procedures.
Liposuction surgery has become the most commonly performed operation in Plastic Surgery and is especially popular among our male patients. This procedure is used to improve your figure in either one specific area, or in several areas. Modern liposculpture is both a scientific procedure and an artistic one, incorporating a concern for the patient’s well-being and health during and after surgery with a genuine artistic sculpting of tissues.
Gynecomastia is defined as the visible or palpable development of breast tissue. Gynecomastia is a condition in which males develop enlargement of the breast and/or “puffy” areola. This is quite common in adolescents and is often first noted at the onset of puberty. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40% to 60% of men.
Pectoralis implants can be used to augment the male chest wall. Implants can be used to provide additional projection of the chest wall enhancing the appearance and often times the self image of the patient. The procedure takes 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Generally, the procedure is done through an incision in the axillary (armpit) area. The silicone implants are placed underneath the pectoralis muscle.
Pectus Excavatum, also known as cobbler’s chest, sunken chest, funnel chest or simply a dent in the chest, is the most common congenital chest wall deformity, in which several ribs and the sternum grow abnormally. This produces a caved-in or sunken appearance of the anterior chest wall. This operation may serve to correct a congenital deformity or tear of the pectoralis muscle. The procedure takes 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. Generally, the procedure is done through an incision in the axillary (armpit) area. The silicone implants are placed underneath the pectoralis muscle.
Some men have concerns regarding their nipple length – the nipple is the projected part and the areola is the dark pigmented skin that surrounds the nipple. Patients are happy to hear it’s a simple procedure to reduce the nipple/areola, and Dr. Pousti can assist you with correction.
Patient Testimonial– “I saw Dr. Pousti regarding male nipple reduction surgery. The entire experience was nothing less than exceptional. His office staff was professional, caring and really made you feel comfortable through the entire experience.
Dr. Pousti genuinely cares about your comfort and talks you through the entire process to ease any anxiety or uncertainty. I was referred to Dr. Pousti by my friend who had the same procedure with excellent and natural looking results. I had my procedure on 9/14/2016 and the results are perfect. What I liked most about my experience was Dr. Pousti personal connection with me. He made me feel like I was his only patient. He takes the time to talk to you, hear your concerns and walk you through the process. The process itself isn’t too painful and the minor pain does go away fairly quick.”
