La Jolla / San Diego Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Tom Pousti Talks About Breast Lift Surgery: Mastopexy
Mastopexy refers to lifting and reshaping of the breast. It can be combined with an increase in breast size (augmentation-mastopexy) or a reduction in breast size. The operation involves rearranging the breast tissue, shifting the nipple position and increasing the breast firmness by tightening the skin. Modern innovations in breast lift techniques include limited incision techniques, nipple sensation sparing techniques.

The Surgical Procedure
The operation takes between two and three hours.
Note that incision lines that are “puckered” heal smooth.
What To Expect After Surgery
Pain is rarely strong, more commonly being a degree of discomfort. Swelling occurs but usually begins to subside by the third or fourth day. Some degree of swelling may persist for longer periods. A well-fitted bra is worn day and night for three weeks. While there is probably seldom interference with future breast feeding, women are cautioned that it may not be possible to breast feed in the future.

Driving may be resumed in 2 weeks.
Non-contact sports in 3 weeks.
Contact sports in 6 weeks.
Sexual activity in 2 weeks.

OK, so we have all been there or we wouldn’t be here. We’ve sat on the beach next to our man and caught him catching a glimpse of a girl in the bikini and wished we were her or at least built like her. Nice shape and all. We are the ones at the swimming pool covered up with the oversized towel to hide what time has either taken away or maybe didn’t give us to start with. I WAS ONE OF THOSE WOMEN. After having several children, my body was definately lacking what once was. But at my age, I thought I was crazy for even thinking about having plastic surgery. I thought long and hard about it and met with several specialists. It was not until I met Dr. Pousti that I was sure this was the right thing to do. Right from the start, Dr. Pousti made it clear to me that he would not do the surgery for my husband’s sake. He would do it if it was for me. I did not know how much it would change my life. Dr. Pousti made me feel so comfortable from the very first visit to his office. His staff was very professional and made me feel very comfortable the way they helped me with the scheduling, the paperwork and the appointments. It was after my first visit with Dr. Pousti that I made the decision to go ahead with surgery. I FEEL LIKE A NEW WOMAN. My confidence is way beyond my expectations! I am proud of my body! Thanks to help from Dr. Pousti, I love the way I see myself when I look in the mirror. I have the confidence in myself that I haven’t had in many years. I thank God for Dr. Pousti, for giving me my woman-hood back. To all of you reading this letter, all I can say is, you are in the right place with the right doctor. GO FOR IT! and enjoy life the way that I am finally enjoying it!!!
Dear Dr. Pousti & Staff
“This is very long over due but I wanted anyone that is contemplating either a breast lift and/or labia reduction from Dr. Pousti, the two procedures I received, that he is a true artistand professional. It took me about 2 years just to find the right Dr. and build my confidence since a labia reduction is quite an insecure situation but as soon as I entered his office I felt at ease and Dr Pousti is the most calm, sweet spirit you could ask for. I know he sees many many patients but he makes you feel like his closest friend. I had my surgeries in March 2011 and I have never been happier with my outcome back then and still to this day. I use to have problems with my labia since I ride horses and complete insecurity with intimacy. Now, I know this is funny, but I love that area and I am very proud of it and the fact that it doesn’t get in the way or hurt me anymore. And my breasts…. I can finally wear a bikini and not have floppy boobs… And I can do something I always wanted to do. Wear my night shirt with out a bra! They still sit so nicely on my chest and I can not say enough about how happy and lucky I am to have had Dr. Pousti as my surgeon! Now I’m planning on getting an other procedure and looking forward to fabulous results. And I’ve also referred friends that are just as happy!”
Dear Dr. Pousti & Staff
I’m a 45 year old who had been seriously thinking about having a breast reduction and lift for approximately 4 years, secondary to a lot of cervical discomfort. The fact that I couldn’t wear a half bra in the summertime because of the heaviness, really limited my attire and didn’t hurt the cause. My cup size was a double D and I wanted to reduce my size to a C cup. After consulting with Dr. Pousti, we decided to go to a D cup instead since by nature, I’m not what you call a petite girl. I’m very happy that I listened to his professional opinion because I’m very pleased with the results. I’m in the medical profession so I tend to be slightly picky but I found Dr. Pousti and his staff to be overwhelmingly accommodating, continuously professional and very pleasant. Hence, my whole experience was wonderful.
Thank you so much Dr. Pousti & Staff
