Breast Revision Testimonials
I am completely pleased w/the result that I received w/Dr. Pousti. Not only is he amazing, but his staff is as well. I felt as though I was not just a client but also more like a friend. He even held my hand while I was being put to sleep it meant a lot. I received a load of confidence not only in my daily activities, but also my work environment. I feel as though I am a totally different person thanks to him. I recommend him every time someone asks me about my enhancement. It opened the doors to more opportunities that hadn’t been offered to me before. Thank you very much Pousti and staff; you’re amazing.
This review is long over due, sorry!!! Dr.Pousti is hands down the BEST doctor I’ve ever met. [Petite 5″3 111lbs 23yrs 32B] So let’s start from the beginning.. I had my first consultation with him sometime in July 2017 I believe, from the moment I arrived the front desk staff was very welcoming and friendly. I filled out some paperwork and then they took me back into the room where I was put into a gown and discussed the procedure I wanted to get done (Breast Augmentation) they took a 3D image of my breasts to give me an idea of what I would look like with breast implants. I also tried on sizers to get a feel for the implants. Immediately after meeting with Dr.Pousti I felt comfortable and in good hands that he was the doctor for me. I had previously met with 4 other doctors and none of them had the class and presence that Dr.Pousti had. Within the next few days I called and scheduled my surgery date because I was confident that Pousti would be able to give me the results I desired. I had been wanting to get my boobs done since I was very young although I never wanted “big boobs” just a little something to accentuate what I already had I still wanted to be very natural. So before I knew it surgery day was here (early October) I was really nervous but more so excited because I couldn’t wait to have boobs! Dr.Pousti was kind enough to give me a call the day before and put my nerves at ease and ensure I was in good hands. The day of surgery was quite simple, I arrived to the surgery center and checked in and waited till they called me back where they had me undress into the gown, socks, and hair net. I had an IV put in me and the nurses were so friendly and calming. They took me back into the surgery room where Dr.Pousti was there to hold my hand until I was knocked out from Anesthesia. I woke up after surgery feeling no pain!! Just very hungry and thirsty, I remember looking down and thinking holy sh*t I really did it I have boobs now! Recovery was a lot easier than I anticipated, I stopped taking pain meds after the 4/5th day. I had 375cc’s HP in each breast and unfortunately I was a little sad because I just felt too BIG which isn’t what I had wanted, but I felt it was my fault because I didn’t communicate enough prior to surgery. Although they looked great I just didn’t like them on my petite frame. So I gave it a couple months and talked to Pousti about my concerns and he was extremely supportive and just wanted me to be happy so a few months later (March 2018) we downsized my implants to 250cc Mod Plus. This time around I did my homework and made a vision board of breasts that I liked and disliked so he could visually see and compare. Dr.Pousti is an artist a very visual man, so ladies if there’s any advice I could give you is COMMUNICATE with your Plastic Surgeon until you feel like all of your goals are understood and don’t be shy! Create a vision board so he can see what you want to achieve. I am completely happy with my breasts now I feel like they’re mine and EXACTLY what I wanted! Dr.Pousti you are amazing and I recommend anyone looking into getting PS done to go consult with him. Cindy, Vanessa, Taylor and everyone else I love all you girls! Thank you again 100% recommend!
Approximately 3 years following my first breast augmentation surgery I had an earnest desire to increase my breast size, for I was no longer satisfied with their current look. Furthermore, they were hanging lower than what I found acceptable and one breast was becoming increasingly smaller than the other on observation over time. I had discovered Dr. Pousti during my initial search but was unable to travel to his location during that time. I was unquestionably impressed with his work and his mastery of plastic surgery was apparent. I knew that he would be the one I would go to and no other for my breast revision when the time came. Fast forward to approximately 4 years later, it was time to take the necessary steps for the breasts I have been longing for and dreaming about. I made an appointment with Dr. Pousti at his office and I was nervous but overwhelmingly excited to say the least. Staff was friendly, informative, caring, welcoming, and highly professional. Meeting with Dr. Pousti exceeded my expectations. He listened to my concerns as well as goals and provided feedback on what can realistically be achieved. It was immediately apparent that he was committed, passionate, and dedicated to his work and his patients. I scheduled a surgery date that same day! I was anxious the day of surgery, but staff at the surgery center put me at ease immediately. The care was high in quality and meets standards of the highest caliber, and as a nurse, this does not go unnoticed. Your safety and health are their main priority. Only a week out from the surgery, I could not be more satisfied with the results. I was provided EXACTLY what I was looking for and could not be more thrilled. I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Pousti and his team. I am grateful and overwhelmed with gratitude for the work he was able to do in making the breasts I have envisioned for so long a reality!
“Amazing all the way around! You will not go wrong with your breast augmentation! Changed my life in so many ways! Just incredible expience and life change results! He is honest and his staff is so great! Love my results even after 4 years! He is a miracle worker! Yes it is expensive but so worth it. I don’t regret it at all! Also wear the garments he put on you as long as you can. Trust he know what he is talking about!”

I had a trouble-free and amazing experience with Dr Pousti and his team.
Early this year, I began scheduling assessments again with three different surgeons. Dr Tom Pousti was the first one.
As background, I have been in pharmaceutical research for many years and I have worked with numerous physicians and observed teams of people in many countries, so I know a good team when I see one.
When I went to Dr Pousti’s office, the vibe in the office was very lively and positive.
If I had to choose one word to describe how I felt it would be “respected”. I felt that what I had to say mattered AND was understood.
I saw Dr Pousti, and not only sensed respect but kindness and a desire to make me happy. Dr P is very low key and soft spoken but knowledgeable, confident and direct. After I left with a positive feeling, I went home to think about it and decided to cancel my other two consultations and choose Dr Pousti.
This was a great decision. My experience from start to finish was wonderful, positive and enjoyable. Dr Pousti likes patients to use pictures of other people as a guide to the desire outcome. I said, “If my results are in the ballpark of the pictures, I will be happy.” Well, Dr Pousti hit it out of the park for me. I am thrilled with the result.
The surgery was uneventful, the recovery was a breeze and every visit to the office has been enjoyable with such a great team of people there. Surgery can be a scary event and I felt comfortable and confident.
Positive comments from friends and family, and myself regarding my results confirm I made a good choice. Thank you Dr Pousti and the Pousti Team!
It had been 10 years since my first breast lift/augmentation surgery so I thought it was time for a little improvement.
I met with several of the top surgeons in the San Diego area over a 6 month period. I spent a lot of time doing my research, reading reviews and talking with friends who referred me to their doctors.
I choose Dr. Pousti based on the level of experience he has with revisions, his use of Allograft and friends who were happy with him.
He definitely was not the least expensive but I will not bargain shop when it comes to any type of surgery.
My breasts weren’t horrible looking but they had dropped a lot in 10 years and there was quite a bit of bottoming out. I wanted them to be bigger and better and that’s exactly what I got.
I had a small lift external, a lot of internal work including allograft to act as a hammock for my larger implant. I went from 350cc saline to 750cc silicone.
I did not have a specific bra size or implant number I was set on. I looked at hundreds of pictures and brought photos of what I liked and didn’t like. I had met with Dr. Pousti and his staff several times before surgery to go over photos and my desired outcome. On the day of surgery I pretty much gave Dr. Pousti full authority to do what he needed to do to in order to get me the results I was looking for. He’s the artist, I wanted him to do his job.
5 weeks post op and I am so glad I let myself fully trust in his ability as an artist (because that’s what you need a cosmetic surgeon to be).
I’ve got fullness on top that I did not believe was possible. They are settling in nicely. I can’t wait to see what they look like in another 5 weeks.
Dr. Pousti and his staff exceeded every expectation I ever had.
Wanted to add a little info about my recovery.
I was never in a horrible amount of pain. I stayed on top of the pain meds for the first 2 days. By day 3 I stopped taking everything. Getting in an out of bed was a challenge. I bought an incline pillow for my back and also a special pillow to keep my legs elevated for the first few days. Those helped keep me comfortable.
I’m not going to lie, the drains are annoying (mine were in for 10 days), the bolster dressings that act as a bit of a cast to support everything while healing was uncomfortable (removed at 4 weeks) and the steri-strips left on for close to 5 weeks were not fun because you have to keep all of that dry. No normal showering until it’s all off. That sucked but it’s what helps the healing process.
But let me tell you, the first real shower will the most amazing shower you’ll have in your life 🙂
