Testimonial from a “fly in” patient:
I am from Canada and I wanted to share how glad I am to have chosen Dr. Pousti to do my latest breast surgery . Last fall after a breast augmentation surgery (here in Canada) I wasn’t really satisfied with the results. After going on the web, I came across a few girls whom I really like the results of their breast surgery and then found out that their Doctor was Dr. Pousti. So I went to his website. I was really impressed but I thought that California was pretty far away from home for a surgery since I live in Eastern Canada.
But after inquiring with out of states patients, I decided to send an email. I was answered pretty quickly. After a few e-mails and a few phone calls with Dr. Pousti, I was convinced and decided to go along with the surgery. Everything went so smoothly, they accommodated me for the scheduled surgery, contacted me by phone and emails and then I flew in the San Diego area.
Dr. Pousti and his entire staff, are warm and friendly, very professional and Dr. Pousti was very honest about the result. The surgery went wonderfully well , the next day I was traveling around the town and feeling just fine! I was very happy with the results (and still am after 3 and a half months). I feel that Dr. Pousti listened to my needs. Back home, Dr.Pousti and his staff checked on me regularly and I always felt cared for even now so far from his clinic.
I am very happy I`ve decided to fly to California to have my surgery done by him. My only regret is not to have heard of him earlier. It would have saved me a lot of unwanted surgeries to get what I wanted .

Testimonial from a “fly in” patient:
As a fly-in patient from the Pacific Northwest, let me start with the most important aspect of selecting Pousti Plastic Surgery “ the people and their professionalism”. I had been contemplating cosmetic surgery for some time to correct a dropping upper eyelid and I knew that my breasts needed some work. The implants I had done 12 years ago simply weren’t perky anymore and I also wanted to go bigger. Visited several PS’s in our area and never really found a PS that I felt comfortable with, I got the impression that they were hesitant with the size I wanted to go to.
My husband and I started looking on the internet and we kept coming up with Dr. Tom Pousti’s name on various sites. Which is where we found Dr. Tom Pousti Surgery website and we were both very impressed with the testimonials on the varies websites as well as Dr. Pousti’s own web pages. I decided to send an inquiry e-mail that was promptly answered by Margie and that in turn lead to a phone discussion with Dr. Pousti. The doctor took all the time that we needed on this phone call. It was very satisfying to finally find a doctor that listened and acknowledged every question, desire and concern I had. One is naturally nervous about going out of country and having surgery done by someone that you have never personally met but when I finally had my in office consultation with Dr. Pousti I was sure that I had made the correct decision. The office consult reviewed all aspects previously discussed and assuredme that we were on the same page with what I wanted to achieve in correcting the droopy eyelids and in obtaining extra large breasts that were more centered with a higher nipple position without having to undergo a breast lift. Dr. Pousti, I love your sense of humour . I had my pictures of what I wanted and left the number of cc’s needed up to Dr. |Pousti. At this time I also met some of the doctor’s wonderful office staff. I want to take this time to thank all of the office staff. An extra special thank you to Helen and Daisy whom I got to know very well during my stay in San Diego.
The very morning I was off to the surgical center, again it was all about the “wonderful people” that staff the center. From the time you walk into the clinic I was very well taken care of. Thank you to all staff at the surgical center. Sorry that I can’t remember all the names, but you all know who you are.
Dr. Pousti came and did his drawings on my eyes and breast and we chatted again about the picture of the new breasts that I wanted. Once in the operating room, Dr. Pousti kindly held my hand while the other doctor put me to sleep.
I woke up with new eyelids and the march larger breasts that I had wanted. Dr. Pousti told me that what was needed for the size I wanted was 1220 cc’s of the saline implants. I know sounds kinda scary, but my body type just seems to swallow implants. So basically I went from a C cup to a DDD or G cup.
I am extremely happy with the work on my eyelids and excited about my new beautiful big breasts.
Thank you Dr. Pousti and all your wonderful staff.
Dr. Pousti has a large number of patient’s flying in from different towns / states to have their procedure performed by him. Many people find La Jolla, San Diego Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Pousti on the internet and want to know how to get started from out of state. We try to make the experience smooth and easy. Some of our patients come and visit the sites in San Diego such as the world famous San Diego Zoo, La Jolla Cove, Downtown Del Mar, Old Town San Diego and Sea World.
This is an actual patient of Dr. Pousti.
E-mail us with your concerns along with some digital photos of the areas in question. Dr. Pousti will review your e-mail and photos and discuss your options with you either via e-mail or phone. At this time, we will also be able to give you a price for your procedure. Our office does provide financing options for our patients and would be happy to review those with you.
If after speaking with Dr. Pousti you decide that you would like to proceed, a few e-mails will take care of the rest of the information that we will need. E-mail your personal information along with the dates that will work for you. Once the surgery date and pre-op date (usually a day or two before surgery) have been confirmed by both parties, payment options will be discussed (payment is due 4 weeks prior to the procedure to reserve the time at the surgery center). Payment can be in the form of cashier’s check or credit card.
We can give you information regarding hotels accommodations, nurses to help after the surgery, etc..so that everything is settled before you arrive. When you arrive for your pre-op visit, we will have paper work for you to review and fill out. Dr. Pousti will perform a thorough examination and discuss everything in great detail with you. If at the time of your visit Dr. Pousti decides that you would not be a good candidate for the surgery, your payment will be returned to you and surgery will not be performed.
Dr. Pousti strongly recommends that patients stay in La Jolla or San Diego for a minimum of 5-7 days after surgery (different procedures require different lengths of time and we can discuss your specific situation when the time comes). Our office staff will work around your schedule to get you into the office for your post-op visits. We ask that you keep in contact with us via e-mail and if you return to La Jolla, San Diego, or Temecula, please pay our office a visit (we love to see our patients as often as possible).

Out of Town Abdominoplasty Post Op Care Instructions
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing you this letter to let you know how pleased I am with Susan, the nurse who took care of me when I had surgery for my abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and breast augmentation on March 26th, 2012. I originally spoke with Paula Widdle who is the Executive Director of Reliable Recovery, Inc. After talking with Paula, I immediately had a lot of my anxiety level drop. I was extremely anxious about my surgery and the NT knowing was the hardest part for me. She put my fears to a minimum. She had a very calming voice when I talked to her on the phone. She called me the day before surgery to inform me that Susan would be taking care of me through my recovery.
The moment I had come out of surgery, Susan was by my side comforting me and reassuring me that everything was going to be okay the one thing I do remember about Susan was she told me I looked beautiful even though I looked and felt like I had been hit by a truck. She was very positive and upbeat, which is exactly what I needed in order to get through this ordeal. Susan was very compassionate, kind, loving, and I can go on and on and on. She was by my side the full 48 hours and came to my every need. My 9 year old son was very sad when she had to go. He still talks about how nice she was to him.
I would highly recommend Susan to anyone who is considering having reliable recovery look after them.
I would also like to thank Dr. Pousti and his wonderful staff for helping me with my every need and just for their kindness they showed me and continue to show me as I am still going through my recovery process I am extremely happy with my result sand wouldn’t change a thing. Dr. Pousti is a wonderful doctor and I am so glad that I chose him for my mommy makeover!!
Thank you for taking such good care of me after surgery.
You are organized, efficient, and caring. You understand the kind of care a patient needs immediately after surgery.
The minute you picked me up from the hospital, I was able to relax knowing you were going to be there for me. No need for me to worry about medication schedule, or any of the other details that needed to be taken care of. You are familiar with the process. That was a blessing.
I also enjoyed your companionship, and your encouragement.
I hope you will continue to help other as well as you helped me.
This is a letter of recommendation for Paulla Weddle. She is the Executive Director of Reliable Recovery Inc, a post surgery care outfit that takes care of patients and all their needs after cosmetic surgery.
I chose Reliable Recovery based on a recommendation of Dr. Pousti, who was to perform a abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) on me, not exactly a walk in the park! From the minute I first talked to Paulla, I could tell she sounded like a person who was committed to first class care of patients just by the tone of her voice, very soothing. Whether you choose your house or a local hotel to start your recovery, you can be sure that your time with Paulla will pout you at ease. She is professional, with the knowledge necessary to provide the care that people expect in a time that can be very stressful.
The best way to describe the care given by Paulla, would be compassionate and kind, almost like having a friend taking care of you that also went to nursing school! Imagine your best friend at your side in time of need, giving you the peace of mind sometimes only a friend can give. You feel safe and secure knowing that the person caring for you is committed to getting you better because of the friendship you share.
After my time in the first days of recovery, the peace of mind came easily because of Paulla’s constant attention and companionship. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is considering employing a recovery service in the initial days after their cosmetic surgery.
Testimonial from a “fly in” patient:
My surgical experience with Dr Pousti & his staff has surpassed even my highest expectations. Everyone has gone out of their way to make me feel informed, comfortable, and confident with my chosen procedures. I had what is commonly referred to as the ‘mommy make-over’. (Technically I had a breast lift, tummy tuck & lipo-suction in the surrounding areas)
Dr.Pousti has a unique way of making the patient feel beautiful even before there is any actual surgery done. He and his staff were very thorough when explaining all of my procedures. Before the surgery we looked at photos together to make sure my expectations would be in line with the actual results. Everyone was very receptive to questions and extremely honest in their feedback.
Post surgery, Dr Pousti & his staff have been so accommodating. Being from out of town, for the most part we communicate through email and over the telephone. Each of my questions have been answered promptly. When I do need to come into the office they make every effort to work around my travel plans.
While I am still in the recovery process I am already thrilled with my surgical results! My breasts have been restored to their beautiful youthful selves. From top to bottom, my clothing fits me so differently, that I feel as though I have a new wardrobe.
I can not thank Dr. Pousti & his entire staff enough for all they have done & continue to do. I would highly recommend him for anyone considering a ‘Mommy Make-Over’.
