Case Number 1396: Mommy Makeover – Breast Augmentation, Breast Lifting and Extended Tummy Tuck

This 36 year old mom from Escondido had been wanting a “mommy make-over” for some time. She had 2 children and wanted to get her body back. She wanted breast augmentation, breast lifting and tummy tuck surgery.

She met with several surgeons in Southern California and felt the most comfortable with Dr. Pousti. He told her that he would be able to give her a beautiful result. She decided to proceed with surgery.

She was “marked” the night before surgery as well as the morning of surgery. The markings indicated where the incisions will be and how the procedure will take place.

This patient was concerned about getting rid of the “rolls” on her side and into her back. Notice Dr. Pousti marking into the back area to make sure she gets an “hourglass” result.

A breast lift (mastopexy) was performed with only a vertical scar (no horizontal scar). The “x” on the picture indicates where the nipple-areola complex will be moved to.

Notice the asymmetry between the two breasts. Dr. Pousti worked hard to minimize the breast asymmetry as much as possible.

Patient Testimonial: 
A year ago, after much research, I met the wonderful people at Pousti Plastic Surgery. I had a breast lift with saline implants and an extended tummy tuck. A life changing experience. A year later, I couldn 't be happier. I continue to feel that having the surgery and having had Dr. Pousti perform it were the best decisions I could have made. After having three children my body just wasn 't doing me proud. I tried dieting and exercise but it seemed to no avail. The unsightly rolls of stretch marked excess skin in my mid-section and uneven saggy breasts were going nowhere. Shopping for and dressing myself were depressing chores. Camouflage, which seemed to be my only option, didn 't allow me to enjoy any of the new fashions. I was dressing myself in very practical frumpy- mommy clothes and didn 't enjoy it one bit. But if dressing was depressing then being undressed was a hundred times worse I shied away from the tender caresses of my husband, regardless of how much he assured me that he loved all of me no matter what. I often wondered if I 'd ever feel sexy again. When my husband who has been extremely supportive every step of this venture and I decided that a mommy makeover was something we could deal with financially, we researched it thoroughly. Together we educated ourselves about the procedures, looked at many, many before and after picture galleries and read about a number of local plastic surgeons. We made a 'short list ' and began the actual consultations. Dr. Pousti blew everyone else right out of the water. For my husband a scientist it was important to hear just how the surgery would unfold and what the recovery would be like and was impressed with and assured by Dr. Pousti 's knowledge, education and experience in plastic surgery. The consultation for me was like the begining of a new chapter. Hearing that I was a good candidate for surgery and that someone Dr. Pousti could envision a good result for me was music to my ears. Dr. Pousti with his uncanny mix of humility and confidence assured me that he could and would create for me a flat stomach and fuller, natural looking breasts lifted back up into their original position. And he delivered A year later I am thoroughly enjoying my new body. Maintaining it is important to me especially because now I can reap the rewards of working out. I have so much more energy and sex drive and my husband is loving every minute of it. Dressing is not so stressful anymore now that I have found what my new size is and have managed to rebuild my wardrobe Fair warning to anyone considering this surgery.... you will need and want new clothes Before surgery I weighed in at 136lbs and wore a size 10. Now I weigh 122lbs and wear a size 2 I have never before worn a size 2, ever I am HAPPY and really, really thrilled with my results and with my decision to go with Dr. Pousti. Thank you Dr. Pousti from the bottom of my heart. You gave me a 'new look ' and outlook on life. My family and I are ever grateful to you and your wonderful staff for taking such good care of me.
