Patient Testimonial: 
During High School I grew extremely large breasts overnight and they put great strain on my body. After graduating college at 22, I knew I wanted to reduce my 34 J cup breasts. My large breasts were greatly impacting my quality of life. I experienced chronic headaches, extreme back pain, and neck tension that hindered my ability to function without pain. That does not include the emotional consequences of having such large breasts. Clothing never fit me, I always looked heavier than I was, and at times received very unwanted attention. Bras were uncomfortable and dug into my skin. There were very few moments when I wasn t in pain, searching fruitlessly for relief. Just before my 23rd birthday, I visited Dr. Pousti for the first time. Although he is a successful and busy surgeon with many patients, I felt taken care of and heard as an individual from the moment I walked in the door. Dr. Pousti was honest about expectations and recommendations, and I was impressed by the fact that he was double board certified. His staff was wonderful to work with and each member took the time to talk to me and approach me in a friendly manner. His office was organized and efficient, but tailored to my needs. I was very nervous for the surgery, but Dr. Pousti and his staff took care of me and put me at ease through each step, including the morning of surgery. A member of Dr. Pousti s staff called every day for the first two weeks after my surgery. I was able to ask questions and check my progress. I felt very taken care of in every way. It has only been a few months since my surgery and I already cannot remember how I lived a normal life before. The recovery takes patience and time, but words cannot adequately convey what this surgery has done for my life. It has completely changed the way I feel, the way I move, and my ability to live my life. I have regained my health and I can move with an ease I never thought I would have again. My overall health and self-confidence has risen beyond measure. I can exercise again and wear any clothing I choose. It is extremely liberating Having a breast reduction changed my life and I cannot imagine anyone who could have taken better care of me then Dr. Pousti. I have complete trust and faith that he is the only surgeon who could have made this happen for me. He helped me each step of the way. He is a truly talented man who is not only skilled at his practice, but kind and goodhearted at his very core. There are not many people who have that rare mix of ability and honest concern for the lives of patients. For Dr. Pousti, it is not merely an hour or two of surgery, but a life-long relationship which he realizes begins the first time you walk into his office. I would make this decision again without a moment of hesitation, worry, or doubt. I would fully recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone I know.
