Some Riverside Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Patients Shares Their Experience
With Dr. Tom Pousti
After three kids and many years of being self conscious about my abdominal.
I was very unhappy about the way I looked. There would be no way I could
wear a swim suit! I no longer felt sexy in my clothes. I decided to look
into plastic surgery. I did four months of daily research on Abdominoplasty
tuck) as well as finding a great plastic surgeon... I wanted the best
Dr I could find. I was not going to spare any cost on my life. I wanted
to know all the possible risks. I wanted to know I was going to be safe
and in good hands. I didn't want any surprises. I looked into all the
possible complications...Since I had a lot of stretch marks my biggest
concern was necrosis,
death of tissue cause by insufficient oxygen. The risk of necrosis is
bearly there. Smoking can make the risk of necrosis increases dramatically.
Luckily for me I'm not a smoker. Scaring was not an issue for me. I would
rather have a scar I can hide under my lingerie then the fat, loose, ugly
hanging skin that I could not hide. The scar will heal, fade and flatten
in time. So after months of searching I found Dr Pousti he was a little
far from my home but I wanted the best. I following all of Dr Pousti's
orders. I didn't want any secondary
infections. At my consultation with Dr Pousti he made me comfortable he
took his time, he answered all my many questions. His staff was very kind
and friendly. I knew I would be safe with a plastic surgeon that is double
board certified. The worst part of surgery for me was the waiting for
the big date and the not knowing how bad the recovery pain will be...
If any question came to mind, I could call the office and they where happy
to answer my question ... The day of surgery they eased my mind. I wasn't
scared going in one bit. I knew I was in good hands. The first 24 hours
was the hardest for me. I didn't have any pain thank God. I had a pain
pump and pain pills that I took on time and didn't wait to see if any
pain would kick in. I did have tightness due to the muscle repair I had,
but no pain. I was off my pain pills at day four. Dr Pousti made sure
I would not be uncomfortable. Dr Pousti recommend I stay in an after care
center called Julie's Hideaway its about 5 min's away from the surgery
facility. At the Hideaway I was spoiled. They took very good care
of me as well as my husband. Dr Pousti even made a house call to me at
the hideaway which was very comforting to me knowing I didn't have to
make a trip to his office so soon. Other than having a back ache my recovery
great, very easy. My results are remarkable. I would do it again tomorrow.
Repeat! I can't believe how easy my recovery has been. I don't know why
I didn't do this along time ago. My confidence is high. I feel sexy again.
good in anything I wear. Everyone says I looked absolutely fabulous. And
lets not forget about my tiny cute belly button. Not to mention I have
a waist again. This is a great feeling! I have my body back again after
many, many years! Dr Pousti you are one incredible man. Thank you from
the bottom of my
Dr Pousti, Margie, Angela, Vanessa and Staff you are the greatest! Thank
you for caring about me. I will never forget any of you. I will be back
for future procedures you can count on that.
