Patient Testimonial: 
Dr. Pousti's is a professional with magic hands in plastic surgery procedures His hospital office staff is the best and they immediately make you feel at ease. As a petite African American in my mid 40's I was concerned about having a tummy tuck procedure due to cultural, self-doubt and well meaning friends on having a surgery for my self improvement. I have to say this was the best gift and courage I took to reinvent myself and become how I envisioned my body should look with Dr. Pousti's help. Every thing went as Dr. Pousti's stated at my initial consultation. Starting with the pre to post Surgical TT procedures and adding on to my day-to-day mobility after my TT procedure. There were no surprises. 5 months later after seeing my fabulous results and before pictures I needed to write and encourage others to TAKE the STEPS and phone Pousti Plastic Surgery in your areas. Dr. Pousti wants to discuss what you want to improve. Dr. Pousti's has three convenient locations in the southern California region. I want to let anyone know that views this I would not change one thing on the decision I made. The surgery, results could not be any better than nature itself. I have a minimal surgical scar which is rapidly disappearing daily. On a daily basis I receive comments from everyone who knew me prior to my change and unless I tell they do not know I had a procedure. My body is natural looking and flattering in a bikini, no drastic reconstruction. I have also had 4 children with a stubborn flab that was not going away. My children are proud of my new healthy appearance. I really urge those of you of any color or any race who are on the fence and seem to be waiting for a sign. My advice is to run don't walk to be a new you The price is worth it and reasonable. In the past I had searched from Wash D.C. to Los Angeles culminating 8 previous other initial doctor consults-- until I found Dr. Pousti's and his staff 8 yrs later. I have unbelievable results. Call Dr. Tom Pousti's office he specializes in all skin types, ages and procedures. Be good to yourself and allow Dr, Tom Pousti to help you. Patient Testimonial #2: Hi I am a Black American with a medium to brown skin tone. I underwent a Tummy Tuck consultation and ultimately surgery performed by Dr. Tom Pousti over 2 years ago. I originally started out at 146 pounds at 5 feet 2inches upon post surgery and was roughly 132 pounds 4-6 weeks after surgery. I am now a size 2 at 118 pounds feeling and resonating a much healthier and beautiful me thanks Dr. Pousti wonderful artistry on my abdomen area. I had given birth to 4 children and my belly hung over my panties often. I had a constant lower back pain from my loose muscles pulled and out of shape toward the front. I was a size 8 dress and did not look bad but I did not look as active and young as I felt. Upon Healing (1 year) I started to gain a small amount of weight. I realized in order to remain healthy and in terms with my goal. I had to keep a mind set to remain in optimum fitness and weight maintainability. I started the old college try of walking in the neighborhood about a mile, getting a gym membership. 6 months later I was better in weight but not healthy. I changed my diet slightly opting to have more vegetables and fruits (small meals throughout the day) from the grocer. Minimizing the fast food, (fixing my lunch) less sugar, sweets and so on. The first sign was a more healthy skin appearance, less lines due to the exercise and body started improving its shape. I started walking faster then running 25 mins a day. I then incorporated small amounts 2 times a week of cardio type exercise and yoga. Then without fail and quickly loss to my goal of 118. In my youth I had been 110 pounds. I realized I was not in love with skinny just healthy looks and overall well-being. This journey is life long to all is life style change. Many of the things like fast food I still have but in moderation, nor do I miss the sweets. I'm very active and less fatigued. I drink more water and hardly touch sodas diet or otherwise. I realize that no surgery, pill or diet maintains itself without my commitment and how I see myself. I absolutely love my tummy and shape. My on going journey is tone and muscle building. All of this started by Dr. Tom Pousti's encouragement to maintain the really great work. Having an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) has seriously changed my life, my career and self confidence. My personal authority spills over. Many people are amazed and comment I look in my early to mid 30s. Take the time to do this for yourself while you can enjoy it and feel younger, sexier and healthier.
