I think it is notable that I have never done a review. Dr. Pousti and his office have been fantastic. From the first appointment, to an incredible surgery experience, follow up and outcome has really just bee=n an amazing experience. I get a follow up call everyday! I had 5 consultations-so happy with my choice!!
Dr. Pousti is amazing. Soft spoken, confident and empathetic. Very serious about the individual and understands that you are not just another patient. Very customized and caring to the individual

Testimonial:
I had my surgery on January 12 and I am extremely happy with my results this far. I experienced very little pain after surgery and felt normal after a week. The ladies at the Dr. Pousti’s office called me everyday for two weeks to make sure everything was okay and answer any questions I had. I was a 32A, I got 425cc and I think they are the perfect size for my body. Before surgery, I was scared they would look too big and make me look heavy because I am short, but my boobs look even better than I hoped. I 100% recommend Dr. Pousti if you’re looking to get a breast augmentation.

Testimonial:
THis is my story! Way back in Dec 1999 Dr Pousti placed my breast implants and I recovered as we rung in new millennium! Back then, I had lost about 15 lbs from running every day and I was not happy with the the smaller size and shape of my breasts. After the surgery…my implants were great! I can say they were PERFECT. Dr Pousti was great and meticulous! His staff was warm and professional and knowledgable and I felt very comfortable going into the surgery at the age of 35. My new breasts looked and felt very natural and I loved loved loved them for many years :):) About a year ago, I started to feel they looked a bit too big for my frame. I had gained about 7 lbs and it looked like all the weight had gone to my breasts and upper arms 🙁 I wasn’t running or doing yoga as much and I was getting that” older woman” look.
So.. I went in for a consult and learned that its very common for women to want their implants removed after a certain period of time. It was such a relief to hear that from Dr Pousti and his staff!!!
since my breasts still looked great and almost all my friends were saying ” Don’t do it”. I felt I may be making a mistake to get them out.
After the initial consult I felt very relieved, like I wasn’t crazy to want them out! I felt heard and supported.
it still took me almost a year to get the procedure done, but I just did it this past Friday! I’m happy even tho I haven’t seen them yet! Again, everything went very smoothly! Dr Pousti and his staff took very good care of me. they called and checked up on my every days for the 1st 3 days. The surgery was fairly simple and short and I will go back to work in 2 days. ( desk job :)) Dr Pousti also did a great job guiding me about whether I should get a lift or not… ( i’m not) I trust his expertise and experience and I’m so excited about my smaller breasts. Its just more who I am now. I will update you all once the bandages are off and the swelling subsides . Thank you Dr Pousti for making all this so easy and for doing such an amazing job!!!!! Its a very big deal for a woman to feel good in her body. Thank you for helping us all do that!
As I said in my review.. Dr Pousti and his staff were beyond great and professional!! DR Pousti is very present and he sees everything at so many levels. He is very meticulous and even though he has done so so so many procedures, I felt like he was looking at my case with great care and detail. I felt very comfortable and assured and the staff answered every question I had . They were all very warm and accomodating 🙂

Testimonial:
This office deserves all the great reviews and 5 stars; it is well-earned!

You know how we go see a doctor and come home, call our girlfriend and complain about the negative attitudes, the long waiting times, and the office assistants were total b*tches? Well, you can’t say that about this office! Every single nurse and / or office assistant in there had a smile, was super helpful and makes you feel you are important. It didn’t feel fake at all, either; they genuinely treated me with respect and kindness with smiles all around! It was wonderful for someone like me who is very shy with huge social anxiety.

I’ve sent emails to the office and had a response within a day addressing my concerns or trying to find out answers to my questions. They bent over backwards to make sure I was completely satisfied.

The La Mesa office is busy and for good reason. This doctor and his office staff are top-notch and never made me feel “less than”…by that, I mean, there is an assumption that you will be treated better than another patient if you are coming in there with tons of cash to spend. They treat you very well, regardless. I’m not money-rich and I don’t dress “up” very much so I always tend to feel a little frumpy in places like that, but never felt that way in that office.

It is a busy place and he always has patients but I never had to wait long to see Dr. Pousti and he never tried to rush me out of there when the place was full. I wanted to be able to talk at length about my concerns and he definitely took the time to talk with me and answer any questions I had.

There were a couple times when I was feeling very emotional about removing my 22 yr. old saline implants, but each time, they helped me by talking, comforting and reassuring me. I didn’t want to replace the my implants or get a “lift” and nobody ever pressured me to do so. You must remember that everyone is different and every BODY is different so we each have different concerns. A plastic surgeon has to take on each patient on an individual basis and not do these procedures on a cookie-cutter basis. I also realize that you can’t please everybody 100% all.the.time but Dr. Pousti reassured me that he would take care of me and do everything he could to do what I requested. Later on, when I realized there were different methods of breast implant removal…I wanted to have my implants removed “en block”; i.e., en masse and intact with capsules and all…I again voiced my concerns and desires to Dr. Pousti and he looked me in the eye and reassured me that he would do what I needed. I have thin skin and he knew the capsules would be thin and that he’s have to carefully look at everything going on inside of me to make sure there would not be a massive amount of bleeding. We talked about what he might find once he opened me up, and he let me and was very up front to tell me that in order to do this implant removal via en bloc, the scars would be bigger and even that didn’t scare me…the fact that he was willing to discuss this so openly with me made me feel reassured.

Dr. Pousti is awesome; you will not regret going to see him. Because I had my implants removed and did not get them replaced OR get a lift, I didn’t want him to feel like I had the opinion that breast implants are bad for you or that you shouldn’t get them or that they are dangerous. I am 53 and I have a much better opinion of myself now than I did when I was in my 20’s…the reason I got them in the first place was to gain confidence, to look a bit more polished and feel more like a woman rather than have a flat chest. I’m not as concerned about my looks now, but I do want to feel healthy. My implants were giving me pain and I couldn’t sleep on my stomach and they were heavy to the point where I was walking stooped over. I also couldn’t run without having these heavy, floppy things flying up & down. And I didn’t like how they felt…all sloshy & ripply. I don’t look down on other women who have implants; I don’t think less of plastic surgeons because of what they do. He does a great service for women, things have improved over the years since 1994 when I got my Mentor saline implants. I thought I might have mold in mine because of how I was feeling…fatigued all the time, foggy vision, ringing in my ears, bilateral breast pain, gut issues…so Dr. Pousti sent the implants to a microbiologist to have them tested. Thank goodness they came back negative and having that question answered is a HUGE RELIEF to me!!! I want to be healthy as I get older, I want to feel as good and as natural as I can. I will never forget the help, kindness and professionalism I received in his care.

The office staff gave me two different names of previous patients who had gone through this procedure and both women were very helpful in reassuring me that Dr. Pousti would take care of me to the best of his ability…that I was in good hands. That made me feel better and more than ready to do this.

The day of surgery I was ready, not scared, but still a bit emotional. The surgery center is also a very nice, friendly place, full of very helpful nurses and smiles. The anesthesiologist discussed what I needed, at length, about what I needed. Before going in, Dr. Pousti drew his lines on my chest and very nicely talked to me about being positive because that would help me heal faster…he’s right! The mind is a very powerful thing! He wanted me to think about what made me happy and think on that as I drifted off into never-never land. It’s a very scary thing to think about what could happen when you’re put to sleep! He kept looking in my eyes and all the nurses comforted me and just before drifting off, he said to everyone there “She’s on her motorcycle riding right now” (my happy place).

I wanted pictures and a video made while in surgery and they complied with no problem!

Took me awhile to wake up after surgery but the nurse was johnny-on-the-spot helping me, giving my husband answers, getting me water, etc. As I left, I asked if they had any crackers for my stomach and, sure enough, they had that too! (The crackers were a bit old but still…how helpful was that?!)

Post-op appointment, I was given a really nice vase and flowers to take home…how many doctor’s do that?! I was very touched and thought, wow, how NICE! And they were beautiful…with my favorite color, purple, and even had roses in the bunch! I have no idea if it’s just a standard arrangement of flowers they provide and it really doesn’t matter….it’s the thought that counts & I thought it was awesome. So typical of this office…going that extra mile for you.

Leaving the post-op appointment, I realized I had no cash for the parking ticket. Normally, they will validate the ticket but they had no validation stickers that day. Without question, the girl at the desk opened her wallet and gave me cash so I could get through the gate!!!!!!! Are you reading this?! How cool, how thoughtful and awesome was that?! I will pay her back next time I’m in there.

Now, it’s a week post-op, and these girls have called me every.single.day asking how I’m doing and answering any questions or concerns I have. THAT’S GOOD SERVICE, PEOPLE!!!
So, that’s it, in a nutshell. Definitely giving 5 stars all around for both the doctor and his office staff!!!
Dr. Pousti is straightforward. He looks you in the eye and very calmly lays out all your options. HE REALLY LISTENS TO YOU! I find him to be very positive, kind, honest, very thorough, helpful and supportive. When my husband was there in the prep room before surgery, Dr. Pousti addressed him very kindly, shook his hand, and talked about the surgery giving both of us good eye contact. He was so reassuring and positive, it brought tears to my husband’s eyes…that’s saying a whole lot! He will even talk with you on the phone if he feels you are panicking or have concerns about surgery. Every time I’ve been there for appointments, he never made me feel like he was trying to rush me out the door; this is with an office full of patients waiting to see him. He talks openly about your needs and concerns, offers options available, gives advice without being pushy and generally is very reassuring. Way before I even decided to contact a plastic surgeon, I did my research, scouring the internet about what I was about to have done to my body, bookmarking pages, taking notes, and when I laid all this information out to Dr. Pousti, he didn’t make me feel like I was overreacting, he didn’t look down on me, he didn’t get offended, he didn’t try to tell me I was wrong or scoff at my views. He just made me feel like I could discuss these issues without worrying he would retaliate or do a poor job while in surgery…a huge fear some women have! I really don’t like going to doctor’s offices, I don’t like taking meds, and I have severe social anxiety so, coming from someone like me, this is a very heartfelt and honest opinion. Thanks for reading this if you’ve gotten this far.

I. love. my. breasts.

First off, I am a keloid former and I scar very badly. I realized this after I had my first breast augmentation. I came to Dr. Pousti after consulting about 3 or 4 other surgeons (in a span of about 4 years). My right breast was hard and displaced. My left one was beginning to do the same. I decided to go with Dr. Pousti because I felt he was the most honest and was reasonably priced. I agreed the most with his plan for my breast revision, which was replacing my saline unders with silicone gel, and placing an allograft on BOTH breasts, PLUS singulair for 3 months. I wanted him to do everything he could to prevent capsular contracture or any scarring from happening again. I saw a surgeon before him who was planning to do the same thing, but quoted me 14,500 for ONE breast. And the other surgeons felt it would be best to just remove them completely. I felt I was in good hands with Dr. Pousti. He was honest from the beginning about what to expect, how we would achieve my goal (or get really close to it), and was able to answer all my questions. He was very respectful and acknowledged my career as an ICU nurse which is a bonus. Nurses can be the hardest patients!

I would drive from Santa Clarita, CA to San Diego for every appointment. Come surgery day, I stayed in San Diego for about 5 days. Afterwards, his office called me every single day for nearly a month. They were so nice! It was awesome. I didn’t feel bothered at all. I wasn’t stressed. And I think it allowed me to recover properly. I highly recommend Dr. Pousti. I am now exactly 8 weeks post op. I have minimal scarring. No pain. They’re getting softer every day and……………. I. love. my. breasts.

Dr. Pousti and his team are the best of the best! I was recommended by two friends, and while they each had different procedures (I had a reduction) they experienced the same first rate experience that I have had so far. It has been 3 weeks since my breast reduction surgery. At 48, I had been considering reduction for many years. While I was not a candidate for insurance coverage, I already believe it to be worth every dime. After meeting with Dr. Pousti it was obvious he was the right choice for me and I was very confident that he would provide me with the results I envisioned. He has lots of examples showing breast reduction expertise. Every one that I saw looked amazing. I believe it’s important for a doctor to actually show you examples of their work in the area that you are considering. He has done a lot of reductions! I did not consult with any other surgeons and booked my surgery soon after. His staff is and has been very friendly, considerate, compassionate and available throughout the process. I met with Daisy at the first consultation. It was so helpful to watch her take my picture and transform it digitally into the upper body I was hoping to attain. The potential was really there and Dr. Pousti was very confident in knowing we could have great success. Along with other ideal images in my file he was ready to turn a dream into reality. There is no doubt that things will turn out as envisioned once I’m fully healed. Making the decision to have surgery is not an easy one, however, when you meet a surgeon who cares and is supportive throughout this process the experience becomes a great one. So far, so good. One of the last questions he asked me before heading into surgery is, “Would you be upset if you were too large or too small?” My response, “Too large!” At 48, I’m done with them and am so excited to have smaller, perky breasts from here on out  I would honestly recommend Dr. Pousti to any one of my family or friends.

Testimonial:
I am 25 years old and have been considering breast augmentation since I was 18. I have always been fairly satisfied with the shape of my breasts, but I hoped and prayed for years that they would somehow magically get fuller. I am thankful for the body I was born with, and have been blessed with good health, so I figured, why risk it? Why put my body through an “unnecessary” surgery?

Over the last year and a half, I REALLY started considering breast augmentation. I keep seeing pictures of women with fantastic bodies and full breasts, and I feel somewhat inadequate. Like no matter how tan, or thin, or toned I can make my body, they’re always going to win because they’ve got great boobs. Despite my efforts to eat well and work out hard, my breasts are the one part of my body I cannot shape the way I want. With these thoughts constantly running through my mind, I began to realize: Breast augmentation may not be a “necessary” surgery in terms of life and death, but it is necessary in order for me to be the happiest, most confident “me” I can be.

I called Dr Pousti’s office the first week of December 2015 to schedule my consultation. My mom and I drove down to La Mesa on January 4th, 2016 for my afternoon appointment. My mom has been the perfect support system for me in this process, not only because she is my best friend, but because she really is there just to support me. She isn’t swaying my decision one way or the other, and I think that’s really important if you choose to bring someone along with you in this journey. You should be getting this surgery for YOU, and you should be getting the size and shape that YOU want.

So, I finally decided I was going to get the breast augmentation I had considered for years. I began the search for my surgeon by Googling “plastic surgeons in SoCal” (I didn’t know where else to start). There were several names of doctors and surgery centers that came up. But the name “Dr. Pousti” stood out, and sounded so familiar for some reason (turns out I have 2 friends who are also patients of his, and their breasts look AMAZING). I clicked on the link for his website and saw just how many before and after pictures there were, and was thrilled. I wanted a doctor with A LOT of experience, but I also wanted a doctor that I felt I could trust. I have never had surgery, never broken a bone, and never had stitches. I am putting a HUGE amount of confidence and faith into whoever I choose to perform my surgery. So it was EXTREMELY important to me that I find a doctor that I was comfortable with. I read such wonderful reviews and testimonials about Dr Pousti and the ladies who work in his office, and I can tell you first hand, all of them are true. They really make you feel like a priority. No question is overlooked or unanswered, or considered “dumb” (and I had a fairly long list of questions). Much of my consultation was spent with Cindy, who is absolutely amazing. She is so sweet, and really helped me envision the results I want. And seeing myself with different sized implants using the Vectra 3D imaging was really exciting. When I made my appointment for my consultation, I was already 99% sure that Dr Pousti was going to be my surgeon. After my consultation, I was 1,000% certain. This is the best way I can describe my decision in choosing Dr Pousti as my surgeon: I think there are some doctors out there, who’s brains are so analytical, that their personalities can come accross as less-than-personable. Dr Pousti is NOT one of these doctors. It was encouraging to find that Dr Pousti is not only very experienced and knowledgeable, but that he really cares about his patients. He was more focused on making sure that I find the right doctor for me, rather than just trying to sell me on choosing him. My consultation was such a fun, positive experience, that I booked my surgery the next day when Cindy called to follow-up with me. I am now 5 days from my surgery date, and I can’t wait to see my results 🙂

I’m the sister with no boobs always have been. since I was a teenager I have been interested in getting a breast augmentation. Anyway as soon as I had the $$ I made an appointment for a consultation with two doctors one being Dr. Tom Pousti. All it took was the consultation and I was sold!! I ended up canceling my other appointment with my second doctor. He is just a down to earth respectable guy and omg the staff is simply amazing. I can’t stress how important customer service is to me and they nailed it! Dr. Pousti had me make a board with all of my expectations “yay and nays” it was actually pretty fun ! During my pre opp appointment we went over everything and what range I was going. The days leading up up to my surgery I got several calls even one from dr Pousti ensuring I was doing good and ready to go! It was very comforting. Today was my surgery day!!! Wow I was so nervous but everything went well from the checking and process to the discharging. Dr. Pousti once again asked me what my expectations were and I told him I trusted in him and man I am already in love with my boobs! Seriously I have NO REGRETS whatsoever! I will be posting updates if u have any questions I am totally open to answering them for now I’m exhausted !! Lol I will upload better photos once I’m not high on these drugs lol

I am very picky and hard to impress But Dr. Pousti is simply amazing. Him and his staff made me so comfortable I am still feeling good at home after my surgery. He was open to speak to me anytime I called in with my silly questions lol if the staff couldn’t answer he had no problem taking my call the communication was awesome! Just backtracking a little even before I had a consultation I emailed the office with pictures and a question AND HE RESPONDED!! I didn’t expect that he was very detailed in answering my questions and told me to take my time and choose the right doctor for me. I sure did ! Lol again any questions please ask.

Testimonial:
I only have great things to say about my experience, Dr. Pousti and his staff. As with most people before cosmetic surgery, I was so scared! Of the results, the procedure, etc. I can honestly say that it all turned out better than expected and my life has only gotten better I couldn’t be happier!

Dr. Pousti is thorough yet very easy going and comfortable. Not all all will you feel like you weren’t cared for or just a number. He really does take the time to make sure you are well taken care of. You will not be disappointed! His staff is amazing also! You will love them!

Testimonial:
My daughter had used Dr. Pousti (619 466-8851) to have implants done and I was so impressed with him and all of his office staff that I decided to replace my very old implants with new silicone ones. I have been nothing but happy with the results. Today I had my one year follow up visit and everything is A-OK. Perhaps 70 is a little old to have this type of surgery but everything went well. I did need to have drains in place for a few days (usually not necessary with first time implants, unless you have additional work done) but once they were removed, healing progressed very well. I can’t say enough about Dr. Pousti and his excellently trained staff of workers. They all make you feel right at home.

Dr. Pousti came highly recommended by a few people and I was impressed by his personal caring for his patients.

Testimonial:
I had surgery with Dr. Pousti and couldn’t be happier! My results came out way better than I could have imagined and are so much better than I expected. The prep before surgery is one of a kind and makes a huge difference in how he and his staff handle your needs. After surgery care was top notch and I was so well taken care of. His staff is super sweet and professional. Everyone remembers you when you come back and it feels so nice. They really do take very good care of you. He’s the right choice I guarantee you will love him and your experience. He’s very personable so you feel very comfortable when with him. Not only that, he’s an excellent Doctor so you are in good hands

Just had my breast lift (no implants) and upper arm lift 3 days ago. I have lost a considerable amount of weight with gastric bypass surgery last year, and these were the two body parts I wanted to restore as best as possible. I’m writing this initial review during my immediate recovery period to share this experience while it’s fresh in my head. First & foremost, my pain has been well managed. The medication isn’t overwhelming, but does the job. I’ve been up walking around, keeping that blood moving! I currently live in Tijuana Mexico, so I stayed overnight at a local hotel by the surgery center. Dr. Pousti even came by to see me that first night!
Dr. Pousti is a very humble man. His dedication to me exceeded my expectations. His office staff are outstanding as well. Very courteous and helpful.

Dr. Pousti is concerned about my happiness and satisfaction with the two procedures I wanted done. He is very easy to talk with and takes as much time to listen to you as you need! He even came to see me the night after my surgery to make sure I was comfortable and resting well. He’s called me every day to make sure I am ok and to answer any questions I may have.

Testimonial:
This is a procedure I have been researching and thinking about for a long time. I have had larger than desired inner labia for as long as I remembered. It interferes with sex, certain underwear and clothing. I like wearing yoga pants/sweatpants Without underwear and I always had some discomfort:friction. I finally found a doctor who had great reviews ( dr pousti) and had a consultation. It is a procedure that has been done for years, but no one talks about it so it was my own secret! The staff was great and made me feel very comfortable. My surgery is tomorrow so fingers crossed this makes it all better 🙂

Testimonial:
Years ago, at the weight of 350lbs, I started the long journey of reclaiming a healthy lifestyle – something absent from my life since sometime in gradeschool. Realistically, I knew the product from years of abuse to my body would leave much to be desired cosmetically, even if I reached my goal of a healthy weight. Fast forward a few years, and 150 pounds lighter, and I was enjoying all the benefits of living a healthy life – I had more energy and was empowered by what I had accomplished. But there was still more that I desired. My self-confidence was still quite low despite my achievements: Years of being physically responsible had still left my chest and stomach areas non-complimentary to look at. Enter Dr Pousti, Staff, Gloria, and RealSelf.com – Being a melinnial, my first stop for research on plastic surgery was Google.com. I ended up on RealSelf and then spent a few unintended hours looking at the incredible amount of information available to me about tummy tucks and male breast reduction. Dr Pousti’s reviews, results, and proactive online-presence stood out to me far beyond any other surgeon I had considered. It was obvious then, as it is now, that Dr Pousti is a doctor that simply gets his patients. I flew in for my consultation a few months ago and was overwhelmed by the welcome I received from the staff – beverage, snacks, introductions to patients with identical procedures. Some of the other things during my visit that made a lasting impression on me: – Dr Pousti’s bed-side manners. I was there for hours and never felt rushed by the staff or Dr Pousti.- Dr Pousti’s recommendation of nipple reconfiguration/realignment during the breast reduction included the phrase “don’t let anyone attempt to sell you anything less”. This meant a lot to me as I was displeased with a lot of the results I’ve seen on realself that didn’t include this procedure – There are no compromises when it comes to proper results with Dr Pousti. – Dr Pousti went out of his way to affirm that there’s contentment with having no procedure at all, and to commune with those close to me if I had any doubts to that notion. I honestly wasn’t expecting this type of positive reinforcement from a plastic surgeon, and it made it obvious to me that Dr Pousti has only the best intention for his patients; whether or not that includes his surgical assistance.Last week I went through the procedure. Again, I was greeted friendly by the professional staff during the pre-op appointment, and then met the surgical team the following morning. Dr Pousti did an amazing job comforting me while being led into surgery. Post-surgery I had the honor of being taken care of a largely recommended nurse from Dr Pousti’s office, Gloria. As I had someone that came down with me for the recovery, I had considered not hiring a professional nurse. In hindsight, I can’t imagine not having Gloria’s help that first day. From being taken home from the recovery room, to making sure I was comfortable at my hotel room (and running out to the store twice in the rain), Gloria took great care of me. I’m still in the process of my recovery and am anticipating my bandage removal. I will provide additional information and before/after pics in a week or two. Welcoming, down-to-earth, informative, and professional.

You all are so wonderful.
I am healing beautifully. Life-changing to a measure for me after Dr. POUSTI gave me a measure of normalcy on my breasts. I am still so excited and will be for the rest of my life considering how I felt all these years having congenital symmastia-prior to my last 2 surgeries with the doctor. In April, I will send pictures of my breasts for review and update. I am so excited that I will even hire a professional photographer to take the pictures!!! Anyway, tell everyone hello!!!! Thank you sooooo much!

Review of Dr. Pousti, La Mesa office.
I am a 43-year-old mother of two. My surgery was to remove silicone implants.

The implants were 360 cc each side. Silicone, they were implanted in 2005.

A little background. I had small breasts all my life and from a young age I wanted to have larger breasts. I then decided after my first child, when I had no breast tissue left, to have saline implants, so I had Saline, under the muscle and after one year they had started to migrate under my arm pits toward my back. Evidently the pocket had been made too large. I then had revision surgery by a doctor in La Jolla and that’s where I had the 360 cc silicone under the muscle. So, having those and then after breast-feeding my second child, I was left with extra breast tissue. My size went from 34D to a 34 E. I decided that being 40 and having very large breasts wasn’t sexy anymore it was more frumpy so I started on my search for a new doctor and to have the implants removed.

I searched San Diego surgeons and came across Dr. Pousti a lot in three years. Then about September of 2014 I looked again as I was set to get the implanys removed and saw that Dr. Pousti was in fact a surgeon near my home town that had done quite a few implant removals. I set an appointment at the La Mesa office and on the Thursday I went to meet Dr. Pousti. I immediately felt welcome in his office and his staff are very warm and friendly. Another thing I noticed is that the office and the staff are not pretentious, unlike a few la jolla offices. I was taken back to the exam room by Vanessa, one of Dr. Pousti’s assistants. She made me feel very relaxed and was very professional. She talked to me and took my information and then had Dr. Pousti come in. Upon meeting Dr. Pousti I knew I was in great hands. He is a very personable doctor and talks to you not down to you. He explained the procedure and then examined me. We both agreed not to have smaller implants, but to have them removed completely. Dr. Pousti asked me a lot of questions and made sure that I definitely wanted the surgery.
Then came the question, “When would you like to do the surgery?”. I told Dr. Pousti that I wanted to do it ASAP and if he had a scalpel I would do it myself right now. Dr. Pousti laughed and said that he had had a cancellation for the next day and would I want that appointment. I said yes please and the appointment was set.

Friday afternoon (the next day) came and off I went to the surgery center. The staff at the surgical center were really nice and I did not feel nervous. Surgery went great, Dr. Pousti even held my hand as I was going “under”. He is the nicest Doctor I have met.
Recovery was less painful than my other two surgeries and I was only on pain meds for about four days. Tubes were a bit uncomfortable, but that was to be expected. I am so glad that Dr. Pousti spoke in depth with me about the location of the incision, as my first two surgeries were through the areola and this time I had it done under the crease. I don’t think my outcome would have been as aesthetically pleasing if my incisions (a third time on the areola) had “puckered”.

In summary, if you want a kind, considerate doctor, go see Dr. Pousti.
Thank you Dr. Pousti.
Dr. Tom Pousti is a very kind, considerate doctor. Has an impeccable bedside manner. I cannot fault this doctor. He is fantastic. I will definitely go to him for any future surgeries.

I had my original breast augmentation in 2009; where I decided to go with saline implants. The implants ended up bottoming out which caused my nipples to peek-a-boo out of most bras and swimsuit tops. My implants also sat far apart which caused me to still wear padded bras to bring them together. I decided to book my consultation with Dr. Pousti because I thought his work looked fantastic. I originally went to Dr. Pousti just for the bottoming out but when he told me he could fix my cleavage, it was a plus. He was very sweet and assured me post surgery they would look great. The night before the surgery I received a phone call from Dr. Pousti; reassuring me that the surgery would go great. He definitely goes above and beyond. The morning of the surgery went very smooth and the doctor did an excellent job of listening to what I wanted and providing his advice. I was glad he provided his thoughts as I felt he would have a better idea about what size implants would work with my small frame. I provided pictures of (Do’s and Dont’s) and I feel the results are spot on. The surgery consisted of removing my saline implants(450cc) and replacing them with silicone(590cc). I also had internal sutures to repair the bottoming out and bring my cleavage together. The surgery went great as well as the post care. Everybody throughout the entire experience has been very nice and professional. I am now 24 days post op and my results are looking awesome as they heal more. I would encourage anybody contemplating breast augmentation to contact Dr. Pousti.
Dr. Pousti has been awesome throughout the entire process. He is very sweet and reassuring. He has been very professional and helpful.

I was very nervous to take the first step in my decision to have breast augmentation but because of the amazing referrals I received I decided to book a consultation with Dr. Pousti. From the moment I walked into the office, I felt calm and confident that this was the right team for me. Dr. Pousti introduced himself and asked me about my interest in breast augmentation and how long I’ve been thinking about it. We then moved to the Vectra Imaging machine so I could get an idea of what different sizes would look like on my body. After viewing three different sizes, I of course chose the largest size. Dr. Pousti came in and discussed what that would mean for me – how that would affect my daily life and my activity level. He suggested I go a bit smaller to match my body size (I’m 5’9” and around 140 lbs) and to ensure I wasn’t just “boobs” when I walked into the room. I was also able to meet with a woman who had just had her surgery 4 days prior. It was extremely helpful to hear about her experience, both with Dr. Pousti and his team as well as the surgery in general.

I decided to book my surgery, and was so excited for the big day. During the pre-op appointment, the nurse went through everything and anything that I needed to know for the operation. I thought I had come prepared with a ton of questions for them to answer, but by the time she had gone through all of the forms I really only had one or two left. I felt the entire experience was very thorough and left me confident and ready for my surgery.

On the day of surgery, I was a mess of nerves. When I arrived at the surgery center, the nursing staff was amazing and very calming. They were all so excited for me, and it really heightened my excitement. They had me change into a gown and the nurse, anesthesiologist, and Dr. Pousti all came in one after the other to discuss the surgery. I had prepared pictures of what I was looking for, and both Dr. Pousti and the nurse discussed my expectations and what I could expect. Dr. Pousti marked me up and sat me back down to wait for the anesthesiologist to take me back. I think the most intimidating part was walking back to the surgery room as you are literally placing yourself on the bed where the surgery will be performed. It was also a bit comforting to know where you’ll be and who will be in the room with you. I laid down and the nurse asked a question and then I was out.

The recovery was about 10 times easier than I could have ever imagined. For the first two days I mostly slept and ate. I took my pain medication for the first two days (the day of the surgery, and the day after the surgery), but after that some Motrin and my muscle relaxer was all I needed. My first check in came faster than I expected, and I was able to get a sneak peak at the new additions. I will say, at first I had what I later learned is deemed the “boobie blues,” and thought they were too small for what I wanted. But as they began to settle, I realized they were absolutely PERFECT. I’m still only about a month post-surgery, so I am excited to see how they consider to settle, but so far I am extremely happy with the outcome.

Dr. Pousti and his staff are hands down the only team I could have trusted to do this surgery. They were extremely supportive and were spot on with the results I was looking for.
Dr. Pousti makes you feel comfortable and safe at all times. He has an incredible way of understanding what you are looking for, and on top of that he is able to execute it to create wonderful results. I look forward to maintaining my relationship with Dr. Pousti and his team and to recommending his work to anyone interested in breast augmentation.

It took me six months to feel ready to write this… partly, because it took me a while to process the experience. I compare it to having my first baby. I had always wanted to have him, but had very unrealistic expectations so the difficult parts threw me off (scarring, recovery time, finished results taking months not instant desired shape… feeling natural vs “fake”). But with my next three babies, I enjoyed the process so much more because I knew what to expect and I knew myself better. So, I’m yet to have the next “baby” aka procedure but I know I have learned a lot from this one and wouldn’t change it even though it wasn’t easy.
Dr. Pousti has impressed me from the first appointment, all the way through to my six month follow up today… I had concerns and I wasn’t sure if they would be received. He not only received them, but I felt that he really heard me and cared about me. Then offered excellent advice. I’m so glad I chose him for such an important procedure.

I’m 31 years old 5’6″ 130 lbs, about 4 years ago I lost 35 lbs and have thankfully kept it off. This summer I really noticed that they just weren’t pretty anymore and decided to look into a lift and implants. I went to a couple of recommendations and I can say by far Dr.Pousti and his entire staff were definetly different from the rest. The consultation was amazing it was so thorough and you didn’t feel like idiot not knowing much about this procedure also I was there for 2 hours and never felt rushed at all. They are so friendly, helpful and really treat you like a guest not “the next patient”. They educate you to the max which is amazing! They also work really hard to make sure they understand how you want them to look, I noticed with some doctors that all the implants looked almost identical, where if you notice his all look different which shows he really pays attention to your goal and does his best to achieve it in the safest manner which is another plus for me. I highly recommend Dr. pousti and his staff and completely trust them they are amazing and definetly a step above the rest!! Hope this helps!
Dr. Pousti is a very kind, talented, intelligent, safe, trustworthy professional and I wouldn’t have had the same trust and confidence with any other doctor. I’m so thankful I was recommended to him.

I’ve always been a small chested girl, never really bothered me, I knew some girls had less than me and some more. Plus I had parts of my body where I felt really blessed about. about a year ago I started wearing push up bras, not the add 2 cups, but just nice push ups from Victoria’s secret. And whenever I was in a push up I felt way better. More proportioned. So I started researching.. then I found the solution, fat transfer added half cup up to a full cup. Then I actually saw reviews on real self, and how dissapointing it was, 70 % we’re not really sure it was worth it and some lost most the fat. That really discouraged me because I didn’t want something unnatural inside my body. Regardless I started seeing reviews for implants, and found some great doctors near me with great reviews. I ended up following my favorite one. And that happened to be Dr. Pousti in la mesa. The months after that I would browse new review or look at old. And then browse for different doctors. After a few months I knew I wanted a breast augmentation with implant. What type, silicone, cause the other one didnt seem to compare, sorry saline. But I needed to save up and I needed a consultation. I ended up starting to save and had about 2k. But with all the birthdays and events I never saved more. Then I saw options on Dr. Pousti’s website, oh wow a loan. Hmm I wonder if I even qualify. I thought. I really knew I wanted this, so I thought let me just try and see what happens, cause I had never applied for one, except for my student loan. Like a day later I got the news, approved! all I needed was to add my bank info and it would deposit in 36 hrs. The thing was I hadn’t even got a consultation.. hmm.. OK so I booked one with the first doctor that impressed me on here. Dr. Pousti. They had an appointment a few weeks in. So I booked it. And waited for the day to arrive. Around Nov. I went and this really nice girl, took me to a room and asked me to wait and to put on the robe, on backward so it opened forward. Then the doctor came in and looked to see what my current stage was and asked me a few questions. Then he left and the girl went over all the options and showed me pictures of past surgeries. Then also took a picture with a special camera and made then bigger to show me a visual. :$ .. they also had me to try a bra and let me put implants inside so I could see myself in the mirror. :D.. It was all kinda scary because I didn’t know what I wanted when she talked about high medium or low profile and side boob and cleavage, I guess I hadn’t looked into that I just wanted my boobs but bigger.. anyways I was impressed, I didn’t want to go anywhere else. I was confident in this doctor and his staff. They asked me what I though after they gave me a estimate and info. And I said when can we book this! 🙂
They gave me a post date appointment and let me select the soonest surgery date: Dec 23 ! My homework was to gather some dream/ goal boob pictures. They told me their website was great for that or real self. 😉 good cause I didn’t know where else to look without it being a creepy web search O_o
I ended up looking at boobs on my insta, and just looking at his website and real self. I saw Emily ratajkowski and decided she was my goal pics, and overall I wanted something keep them guessing, perky natural. :D!
Went in and they answered any questions I had, gave them goal pics, then they took before pics, and gave me my prescription for the medicine. And a bunch of papers with info. More to read yay! Lol
The day before surgery I was so scared.. I wasn’t sure what to do after telling my sister I had not told anybody else because I had been scared of the reactions. So I had the courage to tell me mom, then finally the rest of my family. And 2 close friends. I was still freaking out so I couldn’t sleep and watched lost up YouTube videos, some scared me more cause it seemed Luke some girls would be fine but others we’re not.. and my surgery day was a day before x-mas Eve! Boo! I had family events x-mas Eve and X’mas day.. :0
Anyways I went to my surgery, had my good friend take me.
Went in waited, then they had me change into the robe, compression socks and tights, and you can leave your panties on Lol. They went over everything once more, and Dr pousti, said he knew what I wanted and that he would do his best to meet my goals, they can’t really tell you what size, but he said the smallest most likely to achieve the look. 😮
After hooking me up to iv and they had me go to the surgery room and I fell asleep, everyone was so nice there too, I fell asleep in like 30 seconds and my hands we’re freezing and I remember somebody holding my hand throughout the coldness, that was really nice, until I fell deep into sleep.. zzz
Then I woke up, my friend took me home and rest time, took my pain meds as directed and took care. I am now 20 days post up, went last Thursday, 4 days ago to teach me the massages, exercises. And I need to wear this surgical bra for a bit longer. I would recommend buying 2 if you can. But I would wash mine and slip into a sport bra in the meantime. I like them so far, and I can go hiking and on long walks now! Yay. I took a picture 19 days post up. They still need to settle though.. but I’ll keep you guys updated. :p
Really nice, and I felt like he was trustworthy and talented.

I had my original implants for 10 years and for me personally it was time to remove them and replace them with a bigger, fuller set that better fit my body and breast shape. I did not want to go back to my original surgeon so I did a lot of research on line and found Dr. Pousti. He as well as his amazing staff did not disappoint . My entire experience from my first consultation to my many postoperative appointments have just been wonderful and my results were exactly what I asked for from Dr. Pousti.

Dr. Pousti as well as his entire staff ie. Vanessa and Daisy were just wonderful. The entire process from beginning to end was so professional. Every office visit was so amazing. I was never rushed and always was well received and welcomed with beautiful smiles from everyone. The entire staff as well as Dr. Pousti really spend time with you before to really hear what you specifically are looking for from your procedure and their daily phone calls checking on you postoperative for weeks are very heartfelt making sure you are feeling well and healing well. Overall I had an amazing experience with amazing results and highly recommend Dr. Pousti as a surgeon. He also has an amazing bedside manner which you truly do not alway find in a surgeon. He and his staff are the complete practice from A to Z.

I had my surgery a couple of weeks ago and wanted to share my experience.
My initial BA was in 1999 when I was in my late 20’s. I really was a size A or A negative if there is one since I weighed 100 pounds back then. I just needed a bit to fill out so my first implants were 325 saline. After 12 years and breastfeeding 2 kids later, in 2011 I wanted to increase volume since the breastfeeding drained my boobs and they looked very awkward. Plus I wanted no rippling. Got a new set of silicone implants 640cc low profile. I liked the size but because they were the classic Mentor low profile they looked like pancakes then full round perky boobs. But I wasn planning on keeping them for 10 years and change out to high profile.
Then in mid 2015 I noticed my right breast would sit up high almost near my neck esp after underwire bra for a day and that continued on and off for months. I thought nothing of it. The left breast, meanwhile, kept falling down or bottoming down. Again, I did not know anything about capsular contraction or bottoming out issues and I didn’t know much until I went to a couple of doctors and they said it looks like right breast had capsular and left breast needed pocket revision. I was devastated.
I had read about Dr Pousti on RS many times before on girls having their first set of breast augmentation but now after hearing this, I started researching him and saw that he does a lot of revisions for these types of issues. I drove 2 hrs to have consultation with him back in October 2015. He was even better looking than his pictures here on RS. A charismatic person and very humble person. He told me what the other 2 docs said that I would need capsulectomy / capsulorraphy (words I cannot pronounce) which basically is internal pocket repair and bilateral repair of both sides to remove any capsular and repair my breast pocket so that the implants can stay in place. His quote was not too far off from the other doctors. The fact that he is 2 hrs away means a lot of commuting for me during post op but since I needed to get the revision done, which at that time, the breasts were starting to hurt esp w the right breast. I put a deposit down and secured a date for December. I have never done anything like that before with any of my surgeries where I didn’t at least spend a week thinking about it before selecting that surgeon. With Dr Pousti, his professionalism and his work based on his website and the reviews here just sold me that very day at the consult.

At my pre-op a few weeks before surgery I meet with Dr. Pousti again and Vanessa his office manager and we discussed goals and expectations. I was very honest that since this is my 3rd time and hoping final time I wanted high profile perky and stay within my current size but if I needed to go down to 550cc so that the pocket doesn’t pop open or capsular happen again I would be willing. But I preferred the 600cc HP round. We looked at pics of other patients in his office. He then brought up Allograft which is something I have not heard before. I heard of Strattice or mesh from my other consults but they didn’t think I needed it. Now with Allograft it is even more expensive and the idea is it helps support the internal breast pocket revision and enhances how the implants look, reduces rippling or tenting effect. My implants were low profile so they were almost touching my mid line and I would need reinforcement in that area as part of this revision. He had me talk to a couple of other patients that had the same procedure done recently which I thought was very helpful to make a decision. Still because of the price for Allograft I hesitated and decided to think over a few days.
I researched on here for revision with Allograft and found just a few and they seem to be happy w their decision.
I called the office a few days later and agreed to do it. Hoping for this thing to keep my breast perky and prevent any future capsular.

Day of surgery
I drove down the day before surgery and stayed in town for 3 days. The morning I took a taxi to Alverado Surgical Center for my surgery. It is a really nice center and is just down a few buildings from the big hospital. I liked that if anything goes wrong which is normal fear of surgery of course that they can transport me to the hospital. The team at the surgical center is great. Heather from Dr Pousti’s office met with me after I changed into surgical gown and we discussed goals more. I honestly got more opportunities to discuss goals than I would say my last 2 breast surgeries combined. That’s how caring and serious he is about his patients to make sure to achieve their goals with realistic expectations. As you can see my pre-op pic I have some asymmetry and I said that is my #1 goal in addition to removing the capsular. I brought more wish pics and told Heather 600-650cc HP but would be happy with 600. Then Dr Pousti came in and marked me with his famous red and purple and blue markers which to this day at 2 weeks post-op typing this review, I still cannot remove all the purple marker off esp since you can’t shower as long as you have all these bolster dressing on. I’ll talk more about these dressings later.
Anyway, I always like a dr that marks his patients up which makes me feel confident he is detailed oriented and thorough about what he is going to operate on. Maybe I’m just nitpicking but always wonder if they remember which boob has which issue to correct once you go under…if they don’t mark it up ????.

I was told the surgery would take 4 hrs or more but I got done in 3 hrs. All I remember was I woke up and the nurse said it’s done and I feel like I just went to sleep seconds ago. No issue w the anesthesia when I told them I always get the shakes coming out of anesthesia so please do what they can to prevent. No shakes at all. No pain either since they gave me pain in my IV. Dr Pousti walked by and I asked greedily how many cc and he said 650cc and I was so happy and fell back to sleep.

An hour later I was released. My sister picked me up. I had no major pain as I had expected for both pocket revision. In fact I was up the rest of the day walking around the house watching TV. It was almost as easy as the second breast augmentation. Pain for first BA was a 10 like a truck hit you. Pain for second BA was a 4. This one was a 5 which is tolerable with Percocet. I took the pain meds instructed every 4 hrs but I could not sleep well w Percocet and it would give me a migraine, so I quit it by Day 2 after surgery. I just took 2 extra strength Tylenol every 6 hrs from day 2 to day 10. I have not needed anything since there’s not much pain since.

The Itches drive me insane!

Yes with the tape to hold the dressing under each breast as well as the cleavage area, and I was told it stays on for 5-6 weeks with the surgical bra on, until Dr says I can remove them. Well I have always had skin allergy to anything constricting and the glue from the tape also causes me to rip it off by day 5 and replaced with a cloth tape I bought from Amazon. Needless to say that doesn’t help either. So I took antihistamine to go to sleep so I wouldn’t scratch. Well in the morning I wake up with broken skin for scratching the itches in my sleep. Oh did I mention I had 4 drains..2 on each side. Those things were so hard to hide even under big jacket. The bulbs that the drainage go into are the size of a grenade. Where those bulbs rubbed against my skin I scratched like hell. Anyway I got the drains removed at day 10 by Daisy she was very good at not hurting me when pulling it out. She even extra numbed me.

So I would say the hardest part of this recovery is the damn itchiness which I now have to air out my skin about an hour a day to let the raw skin heal. I bought new dressing from the pharmacy and changed them this week. Daisy from Dr office would call every day to check on me, which is so sweet. When I told her I took off the dressing and changed to new one and taped myself back, she wasn’t too happy with it. I cannot believe any girl here has not have the same itch monster as I have and dutifully keep their bolster dressing in all place intact from the day of the surgery until 6 weeks later. If Dr Pousti is reading this he will kill me at my one month post op…he will say I mess up my results which I’m worried but I really am going crazy with the rash and I take so much antihistamine that I’m so dopey at work. And I sleep with a bottle of hydrocortisone on each side my body so I can apply it in the middle of the night.

The other hardest part is keeping your arms close to you like T-Rex. I tried but it’s hard esp when every thing you do even putting on clothes you have to use your arms and move them. But this I will comply as much as possible.

As far as my new breasts, it’s too early to tell as they change a lot each week and I’m about 2.5 weeks out. They do look a lot better than before. They don’t feel as high as I thought higher profile would look but again it’s too early to tell. They do seem symmetrical but not 100%. Dr Pousti already advised me that no 2 breasts look identical. Breast are sisters not twins…or something like that. So I will be patient as the full results aren’t until 6-12 months. So far I like them though. I’m the only one that sees them. The guy I was dating for a while broke off w me the day I asked him to come and help change my dressing tape. Very sad as it was the day after Christmas. I’m just going to focus on taking care of myself and can’t wait to be in a bikini Ina few months.

I will post more pics at my 1 month post op. I can’t wait to see Dr Pousti again!
A well run office. I’ve been in enough plastic surgeons office and know while the skill of the surgeon is utmost important, it is how the office staff interact with patients before and after that’s crucial for me. Everyone is professional. I get to talk to Dr Pousti several times when I called and never get the run around. He’s very honest with his opinion and he listens to you. No question is stupid. I am impressed with everyone here.

I had always wanted to have bigger boobs. When I got engaged, I started to do my research and went to different consultations. I wanted to have enough time for my boobs to drop and fluff for the wedding. At the end, I decided to go with Dr. Pousti. It was the best decision I ever made. Everyone in the office was very helpful and answered all my questions before and after the procedure. Recovery was easy to follow.
Dr. Pousti is a great plastic surgeon. He is always willing to answer any questions no matter how silly you think they are. He knows what he is doing. He knows how to take what we want and make it real.

Dr. Pousti is a true professional while being very personable. Within minutes of meeting him, I knew he would be the doctor to do my procedure. I had considered doing my surgery last year (2014) but was not ready at the time. I just had my surgery yesterday and feel positive with the results. With any surgery comes pain recovery and a whole lot of resting. He explained my pectus (small chest wall) and how it would come into play with my breast Augmentation and lift. I felt confident that he was knowledgeable on the procedure. He is definitely the best doctor in SD with a great office/medical staff!! They call you everyday to check up on you which is wonderful.

Having pectus means I have a small chest wall which caused me to habe my left breast a cup sizer larger than my right one. The left one was saggy while the right one was not. My procedure was a little bit more complicated for this reason but Dr. Pousti had knowledge and experience with it. Since I am a taller woman (5’8) I was able to go with the 350cc range but not too big considering my pectus. With recovery, the narcotic pulls unfortunately cause nausea. When vomiting, it is important to lean over and hold your chest so the implants do not move within the pocket etc. I’m glad I chose Dr. Pousti as he had done so many surgeries especially one like mine.

I have always wanted to get this procedure done for years. When I moved down and settled in San Diego I knew it was the right time. I searched and reviewed different doctors and I came across Dr. Pousti (triple board certified doctor) and I knew I had to go in for a consult. I made the leap, called and scheduled an appointment. It was the best decision ever. The staff at the facility was really sweet, nice and genuine. Once Dr. Pousti came in and answered all my questions I knew he was the one 🙂 I $100 deposit to save my date (that goes toward your total) and now it was the waiting game

Prior to surgery they will give you a list of do’s and dont’s and make sure to pick up your scrips early.

Day of surgery

I was actually more excited than nervous. You will need a designated driver because you will still be under the anesthesia to be able to drive. You fill out more documents when you get to the surgery facility and you will change and speak with nurses, board certified anesthesiologist and Dr. Pousti. Dr. Pousti will finalize your size and mark you up. I was excited that he could do the size that I really wanted which was 475 silicon 🙂

Once I was done being marked up I get wheeled away to the operating room. Dr. Pousti was such a sweetheart and held my hand and in 2 seconds I was knocked out and woke up in the recovery room with my family member. I didn’t feel any pain surprisingly, I was bandaged up so I couldn’t take any peaks darn!! lol. The nurse came in to check on me and provided me with juice and crackers. Next in was Dr. Pousti and he spoke with my family to reiterate the instructions and told me to eat, rest up and take my medication. Once I got home I ate, took my meds and relaxed. Dr. Pousti and his staff were amazing, they followed up with me and my family member constantly. They are genuinely there for you and want you to have the best overall experience and outcome.

You will have multiple post opt appointments. You will have the opportunity to shower 2 weeks after your procedure. Let me tell you..once you take off the surgical bra and release the twins they will feel like bowling bowls on your chest..was not prepared for all that lol . However the shower felt AMAZING!!

Now I am almost 3 months post opt in about 2 1/2 weeks and I am very happy with my results and I know my breast will continue to settle more and more. I cannot express how great Dr. Pousti and his staff are. He will take the time to answer any questions or concerns you may have and make sure you are comfortable. Definitely check he and his team out!! Oh and he gave me flowers and his infamous tank top on my last visit (super sweet!!)

I have always felt self conscious of my down-stairs area…. to the point it ate at me (in my mind) anytime I was intimate with someone. I couldn’t just enjoy myself, I was always thinking of how ugly my vagina was.
My labia also was noticeable (feeling wise) when I would do exercise or running… I just couldn’t take it anymore. I finally got around to researching it, and I not alone! I felt relieved. I had watched a documentary or ted talk, can’t remember, on the subject of labiaplasty (watched with a boyfriend at the time…. he didn’t know I didn’t like mine, but neither of us at that point knew about the procedure…. he said they were stupid, but I didn’t tell him my feelings on the matter).
Well I went and did it anyways. I am grateful for it. It’s only been 2 weeks and already I have a lot better feeling about my vagina and how it looks. I can’t wait for it to be totally healed! The healing process and been quite the breeze. First few days was a bit sore, mostly tender, not much pain. So far, it has been 2 weeks to date and the pain is gone. Not fully healed, but it doesn’t bother me pain wise or anything. Just can’t wait for the full recovery.
He is wonderful. He is very understanding and friendly and professional. At my first visit he even told me that I’m “normal down there”, so I should take that into consideration— coming from the professional he said I didn’t need it. I assume most plastic surgeons just want money and if you want something, they push you. He didn’t. Even after all my deliberation, I went through with the procedure….. He is a great doctor.

Are you looking for a conscientious knowledgeable skilled doctor who takes good care of his patients? Then look no further than Dr. Pousti!

Many of his reviews are very detailed so I’ll make this brief.

My wife had been thinking about a tummy tuck for years but was nervous about going through with such an extensive surgery. I’m a physician myself so I already had a set of criteria that I wanted my wife’s surgeon to meet. I accompanied her to several consultations with other plastic surgeons. None of them even came close to what we were looking for. We were about ready to forget the whole deal when we decided to go to one more plastic surgeon – Dr. Pousti. Boy, were we glad we did!!! We left his office feeling that he was the surgeon for her – one who had the expertise in the operating room and the desire to really take care of my wife postoperatively.

Our feelings were justified because the surgery went smoothly, was without complication, and ended up having the cosmetic result my wife wanted. There were some rough times dealing with the pain and muscle spasms, but Dr. Pousti worked with us and got us through it all. His office staff also worked well with us and were thorough, pleasant, and caring. My wife and I can’t thank Dr. Pousti and his office staff enough for making this experience all we hoped for and more!! Thanks again, Dr. Pousti and staff!!

It’s been 6 months since the surgery and I am back in the gym regularly. A couple weeks ago my muscles started to feel exactly the way they did before the surgery. I haven’t attempted a pull up yet, but it’s only a matter of time. Hanging from the bar doesn’t hurt and I can do leg lifts from the bar for abs.
A few weeks after the surgery I was hiking again, but my upper body workouts had stopped for awhile. My motorcycle sat for over a month, but I was riding again before 2 months elapsed. I took my bicycle out for rides too. Having the surgery slowed me down for a bit, but I’m back.
The first month is the frustrating part. Not being able to lift the first 2 weeks and not being able to sit up from laying down the first few days was not fun, but it was worth it. Little by little, I was able to do more. My upperbody isn’t as strong as it was, but it will get there. I’m extremely happy with the results. They’re symmetrical and look phenomenal. Dr. Pousti does amazing work!

I had my first breast augmentation with a donut lift in 2001. I had 350cc mentor textured round. In august of 2015 I found a lump and with a sonogram was confirmed my left implant had ruptured. My original surgeon was deceased so having to find a new surgeon was stressful because i wanted it taken care of right away but wanted to do plenty of research to make sure I found they right surgeon for me. I found Dr. Pousti and I have not been disappointed. I was comfortable with him and his staff from the get go and he had plenty of experience with what i needed to have done, they were very informative easy to contact if I had any questions. Being 46 I contemplated even replacing the implant and just having complete removal. I did decide to replant and glad I did. The surgical staff was great about making me comfortable. They even used compression socks which was wonderful. Don’t know if thats normal for everyone but new to me and I loved them. I ended up with 475cc mentor high profile. The recovery has been so much better than first time. Day 1 came home very alert no pain watched tv no problems. Day 2 little rough had some nausea but they did give me anti naudea pills which did the trick, was sore but nothing out of control just took it easy watched movies. Day 3 still good no nausea no real pain. Day 4 switched to Tylenol working just fine hoping tomorrow I can quit that too and get my drain out. Still haven’t got to really look at my breast but will upload as soon as I get some pictures of them.
I would recommend Dr Pousti to anyone, I had the best experience, so glad I chose him.

Let’ talk about tits. I’m assuming, if you’re reading this, that at some point you’ve looked down on yourself, literally, and been unhappy. And you know what? That’s ok. The hardest part of this experience for me, was feeling like I should have been satisfied with what I had already. I spent so much time worrying about what the next person would say about me wanting to have a “boob job”. Well the next person can’t even tell they’re fake, so forget them. What matters is that I’m happy – ecstatic even. I just wanted my upper half to be proportionate to the rest of my body haha. And they are perfect in every way (and they haven’t even settled yet). I will continue to update this with pictures at time goes on 🙂

Breast augmentation is something I have wanted to do for years. After all this time researching and feeling self conscious about my flat chest I decided to take action. I had a consult with a plastic surgeon in the area and after that visit I never went any further with it. Then almost a year later I heard about Dr. Pousti from 3 different co-workers of mine and so I did my research and scheduled for a consult with him. After that initial visit my mind was made up, I felt certain I wanted to do this and that Dr. Pousti was the surgeon for me. I felt complete trust in him and his staff. From the moment you walk in the door you feel so welcome! It’s truly a wonderful environment. I am now 4 weeks post-op and could not be happier. Dr. Pousti has made me feel complete and like a woman! I have a very petite frame and was always nervous about implants not looking right for my body but I knew he would help me reach my goal and give me the natural but full look I was wanting for so long. Only 4 weeks out and can’t wait to see the progress! Thank you Dr. Pousti and staff for changing my life, I appreciate all your check up calls and the beautiful flowers. You are the best!

I am currently 6 days post op from a complicated breast revision to fix bottoming out, capsular contracture, and to switch implants from over the muscle to under the muscle (First BA from a diff PS). Dr. Pousti is the best, I traveled from LA where I have consulted with other breast revision specialists in Beverly hills, but Dr. Pousti is definitely trumped them all with his skill and experience. I am so grateful to have found him, he and his staff are all so wonderful and genuinely care for you.
As a nursing student, I was very impressed by how professional and thorough the entire surgery process was, all the steps meticulously taken pre op to post op exactly like any other real surgical procedure done in a hospital not for aesthetic purposes. They encouraged deep breathing post op to prevent pneumonia, and I even went home with ted hose to prevent any possibility of dvt (despite the fact I’m a perfectly healthy 22 year old with no risk factors). My friends who have gotten BAs and myself did not have this kind of car for our surgeries with other plastic surgeons!
A+++ for Dr. Pousti and his team!

Testimonial:
I had this condition for several years. My husband and I found Dr. Tom Pousti when his name came up in a Google search. We were specifically looking for a surgeon who had an expertise in repairing the type of condition I had. From our first consultation with Dr. Pousti, we knew we had found a caring, compassionate Dr. with a down to earth concern for our best interests and expectations. At one time Dr. Pousti performed the full gamut of cosmetic surgery procedures. In the last 5 years, his work has been focused on revisionary surgery. So this Dr. knows his stuff! Dr. Pousti explained what he would do to correct the serious scarring around my rt. implant. On the day of surgery, his staff was so attentive to my every comfort. They were all so warm and personable! I felt so cared for and it really contributed in easing me into the O.R. experience. Dr. Pousti used all of his most effective modalities of his craft to create a soft and natural breast! I am a woman of faith! I prayed over the years that God would provide a powerful healing to my capsular contraction. I sincerely believe that Dr. Pousti, his skills, and his wonderful staff are an answer to my prayers. I’m still recovering from the procedure, but all is going very well!
I would give Dr. Pousti and his staff 5 stars in each area of review! With all of the patients who come to him for procedures, he is a very busy Dr. The wait times have at times been rather extended, but well worth it. Impeccable bedside manners to him and his staff. Their follow up is impeccable as well! God bless them!

Testimonial:
I initially went in for a BA, but after looking through Dr. Pousti’s website and seeing the results of his other procedures, I decided to also get a labiaplasty.

After being in labor for hours and having natural childbirth, my labia stretched a little. I didn’t even know that was possible, but yuck! It does and I was one of the unlucky ones. Given this is an embarrassing issue to bring up, Dr. Pousti said he performs this procedure regularly, and he didn’t make me feel uncomfortable talking about it.

The results were great and it didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would. Maybe because I had a BA at the same time, and the BA pain kept me distracted. This procedure was well worth it!

Dr. Pousti is an amazing surgeon. His work speaks for itself. If I ever consider any other surgery in the future, he is my go to doctor.

I initially went to Dr. Pousti for a breast augmentation, but I saw that he also performs nipple reduction surgery.
After having my son, my breasts looked like they came from someone else’s body. They were horrible! My breasts shrank and drooped. My nipples ended up protruding more than I wanted them to so I decided to also get a nipple reduction with my BA. The results were better than I could’ve ever imagined!! My breasts once again look like they came from someone else’s body, but this time I’m happy with them!

Dr. Pousti and his staff- Vanessa, Daisy, and Cindy are the best team!!!! They made this self conscious woman feel comfortable, and that’s not easy to do!

Testimonial:
I’ve never had an issue with my B, sometimes C boobs, (depending on my weight.) After having my son, that all changed and my boobs ended up resembling saggy, small tube socks. I have always wanted breast augmentation and I finally got the opportunity this year; I’m now in my 40’s.

I researched doctors and I made my consultation appointment with Dr. Pousti because my mom spoke highly of him. She was a patient of his now retired father. Vanessa was the first to greet me and she was so warm and welcoming. I was anxious before my appointment but she eased my anxiety and made me feel so comfortable. We discussed my goals- stay on the smaller side, but with added fullness. I didn’t want to look like I had a BA. I wanted to look as natural as possible. Then I met Dr. Pousti and I instantly knew he would be my doctor. He was so down to earth yet professional.

My surgery was performed a few months after my consultation because he’s so busy. I wanted it sooner but I took that as a great sign that he’s in high demand.

I love my new boobs!!! They are exactly the size and shape that I want. Dr. Poutsti went with 275 cc. They look natural and I’m a full B, exactly what I wanted. After the surgery, Daisy called to check on me every day for 2 weeks. How amazing is that! The entire process from consultation, surgery, to post op was better than I expected. Thank you Dr. Pousti, Vanessa, Daisy, and Cindy for everything!

Dr. Poutsti and his staff (Vanessa, Cindy, and Daisy) are so professional, sweet, helpful, supportive, and down to earth. They all made me feel comfortable with the entire process.

Testimonial:
Dr. Pousti is an excellent, extraordinary, superb surgeon. He performed abdominoplasty on me last year and I could not be more pleased; however, since my stomach is now flat, my flanks (love handles) now look huge. So, at my one-year check-up, we discussed a flank lipectomy/liposuction procedure. When I had the tummy tuck, Dr. Pousti told me to expect modest results. He is honest and does not try to “sell” you on an unrealistic outcome or more procedures. For me, the results were better than modest. In fact, I feel that are exceptional. When we discussed the flank lipectomy/liposuction, he said the results would be remarkable. Ok, sold! So, I am scheduled for my procedure tomorrow. I can’t wait. It is a much less invasive surgery and basically painless as there is no muscle involvement. I will be off work for 10 days. My husband will again care for me after the surgery. He is an excellent caregiver. I am excited to have the time off work and spend the time with my husband. Dr. Pousti is an outstanding surgeon that I highly recommend. At each appointment it is like visiting an old friend as he is kind, caring, and, as I mentioned, an extraordinary surgeon. There is a reason he receives 5 star reviews!!

Testimonial:
My journey….I had always had large breasts. DDD before kids. My breasts were a GG while pregnant and nursing. After my second child I still had large breasts but they were saggy and dense. I had no fullness. If you asked me years ago if I thought I would have had a lift with implants I would have laughed. A reduction…maybe…implants never.
That being said once I started researching and meeting with doctors I realized this was the right option for me. I just needed to find the right doctor.
I met with 6 doctors. I am not one who wants to flaunt my breasts but look good in clothes especially my workout clothes as I am a SAHM and that is pretty much my “uniform”.
My last consult was with Dr. POUSTI….I first met him 11 years ago when he did another simple procedure for me but sort of forgot since I moved out of the immediate area. Well…one visit and I remembered why I had liked him so long ago. I booked my apt that day.
He called me the day before my surgery to see if I had any questions and discuss any concerns.
The day of the surgery we once again talked size and procedure.
I did not want large implants as I already had large saggy breasts and after years of being so big and covering up o did not want to go thru that again. I now have moderate plus silicone implants 255 and 275.
I am thrilled! I am now 4 weeks out and back to most activities. No weights yet but happy to be doing most other things.
My husband really liked Dr. POUSTI ‘ S bedside manner and listened to his suggestions for the surgery and the recovery.
The entire staff is fantastic. They call you daily to check in on you and your progress.
I am happy to talk to anyone if you have questions. I sure did!
Thank you Dr. POUSTI! I am thrilled

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the results from my procedure! I have been a nurse for 14 years and I know good surgical work when I see it. Not only is Dr. Pousti and his entire office staff extremely professional and courteous, but they provide top-notch care.

Three years ago I had my original augmentation, and decided to go back for a little bit bigger and to have “the girls” brought together more with an internal bra. I went in well prepared with photographs of what I wanted done and what I was hoping to achieve as a final outcome, and Dr. Pousti knew immediately how he was going to handle my case.

After my initial office visit I was able to make an immediate appointment for surgery in 2 weeks. Surgery went fabulous and despite being in a little more discomfort than the initial procedure I had done, I could not have asked for better results. At 2 1/2 months out my new breasts are already settling into place, and they look amazing! They have exactly the right shape and profile that I was hoping to achieve, and I already barely see the incisions that were needed to place the implants. If you come in with realistic expectations and are open to suggestions about how to achieve the best look for your body type, you will not be disappinted.

It’s true, Dr. Pousti creates perfection!

Dr. pristine is one of the most kind and gentle physicians that I have had the pleasure of meeting. I work with doctors daily and have come across for you and all of my years of nursing who are as compassionate and considerate of their patients needs. Dr. Pousti is a perfectionist and this comes across in his fine attention to detail. I don’t know of many doctors that will hold your hand in the operating room until you completely go under, but this was my experience and I felt so safe in his care. I never felt rushed in his office and always had my questions answered thoroughly.

I don’t even know where to begin…..Dr. Pousti and his staff are beyond amazing.
I feel like the second time around was a lot scarier than the first for me because i knew what to expect and I was also so used to my breasts already (9 years) so I just couldn’t picture myself with anything different.
The minute Dr Pousti came in the room I already knew he was the one! Just his energy alone was so calming. I told him what I was looking to do and he listened to everything and then told me what he thought would be best for me for the outcome I wanted. It was like he could read my mind! He knew exactly what I was looking for. 🙂 I visited him twice and on the second appt I made my surgery date.
On the day of surgery I was not nervous one bit! At all! Everyone at the surgery center was also so amazing they took such good care of me. It was such a pleasure being there. I felt like I was at a spa that’s how relaxed I was.
It’s been about 2 weeks since my surgery and I feel great! The pain was nothing like the first time. I think I felt to good I wanted to get up and do things lol. the dr ended up putting 700cc silicone ultra high profile implants in. I was 420cc before (wt. 115 ht. 5’3). They look amazing already!!!!
When I got to finally see them for the first time at my post op appt I couldn’t believe how they looked I was so happy. Once Vanessa( she is so amazing by the way, she kept me laughing the whole time) took the bandages off I just couldn’t stop smiling!
Thank you to all of you that were part of this amazing experience and for checking up on me every couple days.

Dr. Pousti has this energy about him that I just can’t explain. He is truly amazing at what he does and takes such good care of his patients. I felt so comfortable and at ease around him he made my experience an unforgettable one.

Before getting such a major surgery done, I was nervous and scared. But once meeting with Dr.Pousti I never felt more sure about the procedure. He made me feel comfortable and ready to make such a life changing step. He was helpful and knew exactly what and how I wanted them to look. I am so happy with my results, he is so detail orientated it made the procedure that much better. He wants them to look perfect, as do I. The fact that he takes the time to get to know you and your lifestyle makes it that much of an enjoyable visit and you know you are getting exactly what you want out of the experience. Thank Dr. Pousti for everything, you have changed my life!

Everyone in this office is so kind, sweet and they generally care about you. They called every day to see how I was feeling and when I went in for my appointments they answered all my questions and then some. Such an amazing group of people and Dr.Pousti is awesome! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this doctor and all the amazing work that they do. He gave me exactly what I wanted and exactly how I wanted them, I couldn’t be more pleased with my results.

I had implants placed originally when I was 35. Now that I’m 53 Ive found one of my implants had deflated and the other had a slow leak. It was time to replace them. I researched and was referred by several other doctors to Dr Pousti. Now I can see why. What a top notch professional and staff! Can not say enough great things about my whole experience with them, it was wonderful. I can’t think of one thing they could improve on. If you need any type of breast surgery, Dr Pousti is your guy!
Dr Pousti is at the top of his field and it shows. He and his staff are very knowledgable and will make you feel at ease at every turn of your journey. Loved my experience with Dr Pousti!

Hi! Back in April of this year I had a breast lift. I now have had the second stage, breast augmentation. I also needed a large hernia repaired so I went ahead and had a full tummy tuck done also, since I had muscle separation as well. I have not had children, but what I needed done is pretty much the mommy makeover procedures. I believe the muscle separation was due to trauma to my stomach when I was hit by a car while on my bicycle and landed face down in the street. My Dr is double board certified so I was thrilled to be able to have him do both procedures! Dr. Pousti and his amazing surgical team have worked with each other for many many years, and his staff is top notch! They have been so kind to me and have gotten me through the ups and downs involved with multiple surgeries. Daisy, Heather, Vanessa, and all the girls in the office are wonderful and they check on me regularly to see how I am doing. Dr. Pousti even came to visit me at home during the first few days post-op. I highly recommend Dr Pousti and his excellent staff to anyone. I am two weeks po stop, so have a ways to go, but so far I am having a great recovery.
Dr Pousti is the calmest, kindest, most reassuring man! He makes you feel so welcome and entrusted in his hands I was never nervous on either day of surgery. I still have many bandages and tape on, so will update as my new look is revealed.

Testimonial:
Whelp I must say my Dr is a patient man and his staff is wonderful!!! It took 2 years to decide on my tummy tuck and he was informative and welcoming throughout that course of me get to know him first. Now 1 year 1month post op I’m ready for a breast augmentation. I love my breast do t get me wrong. I’ve enjoyed my chest and embraced them as I should have and now am ready to enhance them to MY desires. I’m not doing this for anyone else but me. Keep that in mind ladies and gents. Don’t change yourself because your significant other is dissatisfied with your already beautiful body. Don’t change yourself because you hate your body. You will be unhappy even after the change. Make sure it’s you that wants the change for happy reasons okay ????

So I’ve been contemplating the 700cc saline implants because of my size. I’m 5’8″ 200 lbs you’d be surprised because people don’t think that’s true when they see me. I don’t plan to stay 200. My problem areas consist of the wings and the inner thighs outside of that I love my curves. Any way it’s hard to tell just by the implant size if you’re going to get the results you want. Every woman is built different. So looks are deceiving. Just be sure to go in for a consultation bring pictures of your desired size. Your breast shape won’t change it will just enhance of course. You can’t expect to look exactly like your boobie Crush girl. So be realistic ladies. If your girl crush has 400cc implants and is 5’4″ and you’re 5’9″ and want the same size it may take a 600 to get you there or a 300 just depends on your breast tissue height width weight etc… Great luck on your journey. I’ll include my pre op photo now and of course update you with post op photos as well.
LOVE HIM AND THE GIRLS

Testimonial:
After having surgery with a Dr. out of state, I went onto this sight for advice re: drain removal. Not only did Dr. Pousti respond immediately discouraging me from removing my own drains, [Now I realize just how STUPID that thought was!] but, also spoke with me directly when I called his office to inquire if he could help me.
Fate was definitely at work here! It was worth taking most of a day to drive 130 each way. He and all his staff made me realize the difference between my Dr. and Dr. Pousti. Let’s just say it was worth the drive, in more ways than one!
If you want an attentive, knowledgeable surgeon that’s also a “good guy”, look no further. Additionally, Dr. Pousti is skilled in his field…. all this with a kind, welcoming staff. What more can a person ask for??
Thank you all for your help and compassion from another happy client!
Head and shoulders above the norm!

Testimonial:
I chose Dr. Pousti after researching quite a few PS in my area. On the day of my consult (which turned into my actual pre-op appointment) I was greeted by a very friendly staff! After being introduced to the Dr. himself the staff came in to explain the procedure to me, allow me to feel and touch implants, as well as try them on. During this time several women came in and out to talk to me about they’re experiences with the procedure (this was something I loved!). After this one of his staff took a photo of me with the 3D machine, this enabled me to see myself from all different angles with different sizes and shapes! This was extremely helpful; when I tried on the implants I wanted one size and after actually seeing that size from all angels I changed my mind! The Dr. explained to me his different “looks” we could achieve. I decided to go with “keep them guessing” because it is a natural look that “keeps them guessing” on whether my breasts are “real” or not. We decided to do my surgery about 6 days from this pre-op appointment.

Dr Pousti explained to me that he would actually first place empty saline implants behind the muscle and fill them to the desired look and about size we discussed. Once that look was achieved he would then remove them and place that CC of silicone (my choice of material) under the muscle. I went with 400CC in one breast and 375 in the other and a periareolar incision. They are very close to the same size now, Dr. Pousti will remind you that they are “sisters not twins”!

The Dr. also has you make a “dream” board with different breasts that you like/don’t like and why. He places this board in the operating room during surgery. I really liked this because it helps to reach the desired look and not just the desired size!

After my surgery. I returned 3 days later for a post op, and then again at 2 weeks, and I return again soon for my two month post op!

Overall the healing process has not been a difficult one! I was in bed for the first day, and able to move a little on the second. I did fly to a wedding 4 days after the surgery with no complications! My scars are healing well and quickly. I have recently been cleared to work out, which was a major relief to me! I can do almost everything except pectoral work, which is to be expected since the implants are below the muscle.

I look forward to my continued healing with Dr. Pousti and his team!

May I say that whatever it might be that you’d like to enhance on your body, do your diligent research, get other consultations but in the end you’ll find yourself with Dr. Pousti and his highly professional staff. I did and have been over the top elated with the results. This decision was one tough one to make due to fear but this team lifted me up and I had faith and confidence in them from the first consultation!
Do it!

Testimonial:
I received my first breast augmentation in 2012 and didn’t do enough research on the procedure and surgeon to realize that going under the muscle is the way to go. As a result, my 450cc implants placed over the muscle have bottomed out and developed capsular contracture. They are also too far apart…they just don’t look right lol.
The first consultation I went to was with Dr. Linder in Beverly Hills. Along with stating that he does not feel comfortable performing revision surgeries from over the muscle to under due to having terrible results and would keep my implants over the muscle with an internal sling, I did not really get a genuine vibe from him overall. I did more research specifically looking for a surgeon who has a lot of experience in bottoming out repair and specializes in breast revisions and discovered Dr. Pousti. He had so many before and after pictures and reviews of great looking revision results. My consultation with him and his staff was wonderful, and I even met with some of his post op patients whose results looked amazing. Dr. Pousti and his staff were so friendly, and Dr. Pousti seemed very experienced and totally confident in fixing my breast issues. He is going to switch my over the muscle implants to a larger size, place them under the muscle, perform a breast pocket revision with internal sutures to prevent the implants from displacing laterally and bottoming out, and remove the hardened scar tissue that has formed around my implant. My surgery date is in 3 weeks, I am so excited (:
Incredibly sweet and experienced.

This site has helped me so much in terms research, helping decide on a surgeon/team, and expectations that I thought share my experience. Surgery was the13th and went smoothly. After getting a couple IV bags of fluid and meeting with a few nurses and anesthesiologist (a doctor)….and a minor little freak out (wondering if I really needed to do this but got it together) and then met with Dr. Pousti who put me at ease. ???? He spoke briefly with my husband I, checked my “yes” & “no” photo boards and agreed we were all on the same page with very realistic and attainable goals/results. Oh… Forgot to say I also got a benelli lift with silicone implants, under muscle. Due to difference in size, ended up with 600cc on left and 550cc on right. Doc said that should result in D/DD. Mind you I was a36B prior. Been wearing this surgical bra seems like forever and can’t wait to see the new girls! So far loving what i can see! ???? Second post op is next week and I’m hoping to get rid of this thing then and go shopping for a bra! ????. Definitely recommend keeping up with pain meds, and on time. I was out of it fora good 3 days and certainly needed all I was prescribed and help to and from restroom. One time I tried to get it done on my own and ended up doing a head plant into the wall – but managed not to touch/injure the girls (I tried this even after reading about falls and hematomas!!! Get and utilize help from family & friends!!) My sweetheart of a husband kept me on schedule with it all, and even slept upright with me on the chaise for what seemed like forever…not the easiest way to sleep! ???? Just graduated to sleeping flat (supported by pillows under back/head) in bed! ???? Finally switched over to Motrin with occasional Valium and Benadryl (broke out in rash under front of bra and healing wounds can drive ya CRAZY) The SOONER you get off the meds, the better cuz lemme tell ya the constipation is no joke ????. Starting to feel more like myself, but still not there. Everyone is different and after reading many reviews I expected to be out for a week, but I’m working on a little over two weeks from work! Dr./office & surgical team were awesome ???? and surprised me with flowers, a real personal interest, and daily calls to check on status/feelings. Top notch!,????. Will update progress….
Dr. Pousti was very polite, personable, open, knowledgeable, genuinely concerned for your safety and providing your desired outcome. Also has a great bedside manner and sense of humor, which helps out you at ease, at the same time being very professional. Top Notch!

I breast fed two kids and both breasts were deflated. My breasts were very much deflated after the second child. I waited almost four years to even think about having breast augmentation and when I finally did just to see how or what the procedures are, meeting the staff and Dr. Pousti made me feel very comfortable! I never made a decision that quick. I planned to get a second opinion from another doctor but I didn’t need to.

I love Dr. Pousti!!! Words cannot describe how happy I am with my results. Overall experience… AWESOME!!!!!
Making a decision on my first consultation says it all. Besides being a GREAT doctor, Dr. Pousti is very compassionate and caring person. BEST doctor in U.S.

Testimonial:
So excited my procedure is tomorrow morning, yaay. Im a mom of 3, 5’7″, about 150lbs. I’ll be getting a full lift and augmentation to hopefully bring my sad deflated 34c cups back to my pre pregnancy and pre breast feeding look. I compete in bodybuilding competitions and when I get lean my boobs are almost non existent, just loose skin stuffed into a 34b cup. When its off season and I’m being lazy(current situation) I’m a less deflated flappy 34c. Hoping to end up a full D cup, maybe DD. Don’t want to be too top heavy since I do compete and balance is important. Idk what CCs I’ll get Dr Pousti will decide during the procedure based on my boobie vision board I made (at his request) he’ll get as close to my goals as possible. But I know I am getting Mentor, Silicone, High Profile Implants.

Dr. Pousti and his staff are so nice and make me so comfortable in my decision. Dr. Pousti really cares about his patients, I know this because my consultation was back in August and I mentioned to him that I was a single mom who just went through a recent break up, he explained that he could definitely give me a beautiful result but he wanted me to take some time before actually deciding on scheduling the procedure. I think he said this to give me time to insure this is what I wanted and for the right reasons. I truly appreciate that. After my consult I knew he was the PS for me. I did take a couple months to think before scheduling and I think it was the right decision to wait a while.
Dr. Pousti is very kind and seems 100% confident, which made me feel at ease. He assures me he can get me a beautiful result but also makes sure I am realistic in my expectations. The result of a BA lift will not be the same result as someone who only got a BA. I’m so glad to have a PS who will let me know exactly what to expect. His coordinators Daisy and Vanessa are both really sweet and you can tell they enjoy what they do. They and Dr Pousti were happy to answer all of my questions. At my consultation Dr Pousti spent so much time talking to me I felt like I was the only patient there. It was really nice not feeling rushed. I trust him fully and I know everything will turn out amazing.

I wasn’t going to write a review because this was such a private issue for me, but I decided if it was difficult for me, maybe there’s someone else out there who will read this and decide to go for it. The second reason why I am writing this review, is to let everyone know how amazing Dr. Pousti and his staff have been. Having large labia has been something that has been embarrassing for as long as I can remember. It has affected my marriage, my body image and was something that was on my mind all the time. I wouldn’t stand completely naked in front of my husband and I would only wear a swim suit that had a little skirt or I would wear a cover up over it.
From the minute I made my appointment with Dr. Pousti, I felt welcomed. Everyone was so professional and so welcoming. My consultation was the same, Cindi was amazing and never made me feel ashamed or uncomfortable. I knew I would be well taken care of. The morning of the surgery, Dr. Pousti had me look in the mirror and show me what he was going to do (I nearly died as I absolutely hated looking at my vagina!). I remember telling him all I wanted was a “cute crotch.” Haha. (I also had a BA with lift done at the same time). When I woke up, the area felt irritated but I only had mild pain and only mild spotting. The surgery center applied ice immediately. I was instructed to ice for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off and that really did wonders. I felt mild discomfort but never really any serious pain. The spotting only lasted for a few days but I continued to ice for 2 weeks as needed. I only had mild swelling as well. I remember looking in the mirror when I got home (and I know, they tell you not to look-yeah right ) and thinking, “why did I take so long to do this??” I still have some swelling and I’m told it will take several weeks before I will know for sure what the final result will look like. But even if this were it, even if this was how I was going to look forever-I would be happy with the results. What a difference! I do not have before pics and most of my after pics were deleted so this pic is the only one left and was taken at about 1 1/2 weeks post op. I feel like I owe Dr. Pousti so much! Even though my husband and I haven’t been able to be intimate yet, our relationship has already gotten stronger…I don’t feel embarrassed to stand naked in front of him anymore. Huge step in the right direction.
Dr. Pousti and his staff are amazing! They are seriously some of the most kind, welcoming, knowledgeable people I have ever met. My consultation and my follow up appointments have been mostly with Cindi and she is absolutely wonderful. I never felt ashamed or “different.” She is kind and professional. Helen in the office has been amazing with helping me with doctors notes needed for my employer and Daisy called me everyday for 2 weeks to check on me and ask if I had any questions! Dr. Pousti is amazing. He is warm, kind and professional-always making me feel at ease. I feel like I owe him so much!

Im 5’5, 108 pounds, very slim athletic build. I was a 32 B and I got 405cc HP silicone implants through the areola now im a 32 D!!! Ive always wanted a Breast Augmentation, and this year I finally did it and I couldnt be happier!!!!!! Dr. Pousti is the best, If you are thinking of having a breast augmentation you have to go to him!! I went and had a consult with another doctor before Dr Pousti, and it just left me feeling so unsure and I just had a bad feeling. I went to my consult with Dr. Pousti and it was amazing I was there for about 2 hours. All the ladies that work there are wonderful. I got to meet 2 different patients, one who was about 3 years post op and someone who was just 10 days post op. I tried on sizes and liked the 350-400 range. Dr Pousti was very sweet and professional and made me feel so comfortable. I wanted big breasts that still looked very natural since im so small. I didnt want a huge gap or for them to just look stuck on my body. He told me he likes to use “the keep them guessing look” and that I should have a very nice outcome. I was a little nervous because he doesnt promise a certain size or profile because he wants to see what looks good on my body in the operating room. (which now makes total since because certain ccs and profiles will look different on different people). He asked me to make a poster board of what I wanted and what I didnt want so he could get me the look I desired. My surgery day came and I was so excited, a bit nervous because I know I get sick when I get put under. I woke up nauseous and threw up lol but the “pain” wasnt bad AT ALL. I just felt sore maybe a 3/4 out of 10. My sister helped me the first 2 days, I couldnt pull my pants up or down and she needed to help me off the couch. Dr Pousti and staff called me everyday the first 2 weeks. I went back to work after 8 days. I just felt sore after a long day of work. Around the 2 weeks I got really upset I thought they were way to big and that I made a mistake. I did alot of research before hand and knew that alot of patients either thought they were to small or to big and I just need to get use to them and have them settle. I talked to Dr Pousti about how I was feeling and he said the same thing and that of his patients the ones who felt they were to big were very happy later on, and that I just have to be patient and wait for them to drop and the swelling to go down. He made me feel alot better. About a week later the swelling went down and I fell in love!! They are perfect and just keep getting better everyday. Im 3 months post op now and they are so squishy and soft. They move around and can be squished together. My scars are healing very nicely. I am so so so thankful that Dr Pousti listened to what I wanted and gave me all that and more! He is an amazing surgeon and has fantastic bed side manner.

I should’ve started this sooner but didn’t have time before. Now I’m just sitting around so I have lots of time ;).

I went to my consultation with Dr. Pousti back in September. The consultation was $100 but would go towards your surgery. My sister in law had also gone to Pousti and is really happy so I was fairly certain I’d go with him, especially based off his reviews. The two hour consultation was spent with one of his office girls, I honestly can’t remember her name. She took photos, showed me a virtual image of what my breasts could look like, and answered all my questions. Dr. Pousti probably spent a total of 20 minutes with me that day, but I feel like he would’ve spent more time if I had more questions. He was very nice and straight forward, which I appreciate.

The first thing he said when he looked at my saggy C cup breasts was that I would benefit from a lift. I had a feeling I would after researching but was hoping somehow I wouldn’t need one. I thought about it for one day and booked my procedure for November 12.
Had my surgery yesterday. I was terrified and cried while they were getting me ready. Once Dr. Pousti and my nurse came in I felt better. He measured and drew on me while I stood in front of a mirror. He is super precise. We talked about size and he asked if I would be more upset if they were too small or too big. I said too small. I had tried on 350cc sizers and thought those were pretty good on my frame. Dr. Pousti has you create a “boobie board” where you put pictures of breasts you want and breasts you don’t like. He hangs this on the wall during surgery and literally walks back and forth to get your breasts as close to your wish pictures as possible. I think he’s amazing. Once they took me back it was all really fast. I laid down, had a nurse holding each hand and I was out.

I woke up pretty coherent. I told the nurse I thought I was waking up to get ready for work. I only felt nauseous once I was moved to a wheel chair to get in the car. The car ride home wasn’t bad because I was still pretty groggy.

The whole first day I stayed on top of my meds. I felt pretty good yesterday. I was surprised that there wasn’t any real pain, just a lot of pressure and soreness. Late last night I started feeling my incisions regardless of my pain meds, which I don’t like. This morning waking up was hard. I was expecting day two to be worse and it definitely is, but still not unbearable.
Dr. Pousti called me last night to see if I needed anything or had questions. I appreciate his follow up. Today I will probably ask if it’s normal to feel so much while on the Percocet.

Today I was able to stand up and go to the bathroom by myself. I slept almost the entire morning and afternoon yesterday and all last night. My husband has been feeding me lots of protein and up until last night I couldn’t put food in my mouth on my own. I definitely feel like the second day was the most painful and now I am just relaxing until I have my next appointment on Tuesday. I’m afraid to stop taking my meds because I still am very sore but I’ll probably start spacing them out in a couple of days to see how it feels. So far the overall experience has been less painful than I was expecting. I still have a lot of healing to do though. Now that they hurt less im getting really excited to see them!
Our interaction is still ongoing since I’m only one day post op, but so far he has been very kind and straightforward. His office staff and the staff at the surgical center are wonderful. Dr. Pousti contacts me personally to check on me which Im pleasantly surprised by since he’s a super popular doctor. Overall I’m impressed.

One week until surgery, super excited yet nervous about going under and pain to follow. I am putting all my trust in Dr. Pousti.I have been given good advice on how to prevent the nausea tho. Daisy has been wonderful getting me sized and helping me with my poster board so the doctor can see what I want.

Testimonial:
I have had inverted nipples my entire life and have always hated my breasts because of the “slits” that I had for nipples. The size of my breasts and symmetry are perfect except for one thing, my nipples. I have done everything for my family, but nothing for me. Now… it’s my turn and I finally decided it was time. The day of surgery… I said ‘goodbye ugly nipples’ and saw my “new” nipples after surgery. Oh how happy and beautiful I look and feel! If you have inverted nipples… get them fixed! I highly recommend it. The surgery is very manageable with very little discomfort thanks to Dr. Pousti and his staff.
I did my research online and it took a year to finally decide who was going to perform my nipple repair surgery. Dr. Pousti was it! My first impression walking into his office was I felt at home and I felt completely comfortable and welcome. The staff is extremely caring and empathetic and they are there for “you.” What a blessing to find such a wonderful doctor to perform such a personal surgery and the outcome was more than perfect! Thank you Dr. Pousti for making me feel even more beautiful!

Testimonial:
I never imagined that I would have breasts augmentation. Before having my children and getting into a fitness lifestyle, my breasts were great! Also, my husband always commented on that he always prefers natural breasts over enhanced-no matter what size they are. Honestly, I was shocked at how my breasts looked after I finished breastfeeding my second child and I must admit was very torn because I was always judgmental about people with noticeable breast augmentation.

We are familiar with many plastic surgeons in San Diego area due to my husbands being in the medical profession and decided to consult Dr. Pousti because of his impeccable reputation as a surgeon. He is an incredible listener and is extremely focused on the results his patients are looking for.

I did not think the natural look I needed is even realistic. Basically I did not want anyone ever even think I got breast augmentation. No upper fullness, little bit of drop to be expected at my age, perfectly proportionate with my body shape, perfect natural distance between them etc.

Dr. Pousti delivered that and more. The consultations were very detailed; he put my husband and me at ease. Surgery and recovery went very well and Dr. Pousti set realistic expectations with me. His follow up service is incredible! Dr. Pousti’s whole staff and especially his office manager Vanessa is incredible.
The office called daily to make sure I am OK. My breasts look like they did before I had my children-actually they look better! Not one person beside my husband know I got this done and they will never figure it out, LOL

Do yourself a favor and go see him.

I will post pics shortly!
Dr. Pousti, his whole staff and especially his office manager Vanessa are incredible

I highly recommend Dr. Pousti because of his Professionalism and Patriotism

If you are searching for a great TEAM– look no more–Dr Tom Pousti and his staff is what you are looking for. You will receive first class treatment from day one till indefinitely…. Tess Serrano

After having kids I’ve gotten in shape going to the gym but there is no exercise to help perk and grow your breasts. I met with Dr pousti and 6 wks later I was in surgery, the whole process was quick and he listen and gave me exactly what I was asking for, actually better than I expected. Still recovering but it’s going better than I thought.
Dr pousti was amazing I recommend him for whatever your looking to enhance or reduce. He was recommended to me from my sister in law and after having kids I wanted to finally be able to get my breast done. Dr pousti did an amazing job and I’m so happy I finally went through the process.

I have had 4 kids, breastfed all of them, and have lost over 100 pounds. I have had saggy, deflated breasts for years and this procedure is something I have been thinking about for years. My youngest is 2 1/2 and we know we are done having kids so I though this was the perfect time. My husband is 100% supportive and planned on taking off 2 weeks of work to help me post-op. Had my consultation 9/16 and booked my surgery that day! I always knew that I would go to Dr. Pousti, I know several people that have gone to him and have read hundreds of wonderful reviews about him and his staff (all are true!). I chose to go with silicone under the muscle implants and I needed a stage 3 lift. We talked about size but didn’t really decide on the CCs. I like having smaller breasts because I run 30 miles a week and didn’t want them to big!
The day of surgery I was nervous but the nurses, anesthesiologist and of course Dr. Pousti were all amazing and put my fears to rest. He marked me all up and explained everything again. We talked about size again and decided to go with 350 CCs.
When I woke up from the surgery, I felt like I had been run over by a truck. My chest hurt so bad and it hurt to take a deep breath. I was nauseated and in pain but the surgery center was extremely attentive. I had Percocet and Valium for pain. At first I was only taking 1 percocet at a time but when the surgery center nurse called my that evening and heard how much pain I was in, she encouraged me to take 2 at a time. Taking 2 Percocet around the clock the first 24 hours really helped and was able to sleep. My husband made a chart with my medications in order to keep on top of my pain. He woke me up to take pain medicine…my biggest piece of advice is to take your pain meds on a schedule during that first 24 hours! Day 2 was much better, still pain but much better.
I had my first post op appointment on Day 3 and they were able to remove the 2 JP drains! Still with pain but much more tolerable. At the appointment my husband and I were able to sneak a peak at the new breasts and dang they look great. I’m still incredibly swollen and they are sitting high (haven’t dropped into the pockets but everything is normal so far). It has been difficult to keep my elbows at my sides and sleep in a reclined position but I’ve been a compliant patient!
I just had my second post op appointment on Day 8 and things are going well. He took off some of the padding and showed us how to start the massage process to help them drop into the pockets. My pain is so much better and I’m taking motrin during the day and maybe 1 Percocet or 1 Valium at night (still kind of sore after long days). I am still supposed to keep my arms and my sides because of the extensive lift I had which is difficult with 4 kids at home but my husband has been amazing. Can’t wait to see how everything progresses and I’ll post pictures as I go!
From the first time I walked in to Dr. Pousti’s office I felt welcomed. Their office staff is amazing, especially Helen and Cindi. My consultation was almost an hour. We talked about everything! They showed me pictures of past patients, I was able to speak with current patients in various stages of healing and they showed me a live picture of my body with my breasts lifted. It was an amazing experience. After my surgery, they have called everyday to check on me. And Dr. Pousti has remembered me and my story with every visit, despite his hundreds of patients. Helen has been amazing helping me with letters to my employer and with disability. Dr. Pousti is amazing and his staff is incredible.

I have had 3 procedures with Dr. Pousti and every time have had extraordinary care. Just this past July I had a tummy tuck (OMG love my new tummy). During this time Dr. Pousti and his staff (love you Vanessa) called me every single day and Dr. Pousti came to my home several times to check on me. . I happen to be a Kaiser member but I go to Dr. Pousti because he is the best and an artist.
I went from a size 12 pant to a size 4-6, it’s so nice to walk into any store and to buy things I was not able to purchase in the past. This has given me so much self confidence at 61 years old. I’m even wearing a 2 piece bathing suit again.
Dr. Pousti cares about you and what you want your end results to be. He is truly an artist when it comes to plastic surgery. I would have never thought I could look and feel so good. His staff treats you like your part of a extended family. My nurse, Vanessa called me everyday and I felt she genuinely cared about me.

Testimonial:
I had NOTHING to work with. I have curves and because I had no boobs I was so uncomfortable all the time. I would spend $70 on the most padded bras I could find at VS and would just wear those. I got 550 CC’s in both boobs (I was very hesitant because I wanted them to look more natural) but I’m now 3 weeks post up, and amazing so far. SO happy with Dr. Pousti and SO happy with my results. He made them look exactly how I wanted them all while him and his staff made me always feel like I was perfect even without them. Best experience.
Most amazing surgeon with the most amazing staff hands down.

Testimonial:
My surgery was breast reduction revision. The first surgery was 28 years ago then I had breast lift. Both surgeries were waist of time and money. I Googled the best doctor for my surgery and it was Dr Pousti. I read many reviews about him and did not hesitate for a second to have him revise the surgery. I had neck and shoulder pain. My beasts were big. I wore size 6 in the bottom and 10 in the top. It was frustrating to buy a dress. Yesterday was the first time that I bought a dress and I have not had such a great feeling for years.
I visited Dr Pousti beginning of September. The service I had from Dr Pousti and his staff was exceptional. Helen, Daisy, Vanessa and all the staff treated me like I was part of their close family.
Dr Pousti performed the surgery and I had one issue that there was no blood flow to the right areola, otherwise it would have been a perfect surgery. I was blessed to have Dr Pousti as my surgeon because he was very knowledgeable with this issue. The blood issue could happen to patients who have a reduction revision. He left the areola unattached to my breast for 2 weeks to have the blood flow to it. He reattached it in his clinic under local anesthesia after 2 weeks and it was perfect. Being such a knowledgeable , perfectionist and caring Doctor, I followed his instructions without any worries.
I did not have much pain after surgery. I am very happy with the results so far. My breasts are symmetrical and the areola are centered. I still have few months before the swelling goes down and I see the final results.
I have to mention that I asked Helen for several documents and called her many times. She was always professional and provided me with the documents immediately despite her busy schedule.
As far as for Daisy and Vanessa, they gave me local anesthesia and I did not feel it at all. They were very gentle. They took extra care of me. I was never spoiled by any nurse or Doctor’s assistant anywhere. They also responded to my emails and phone calls immediately.
I cannot thank Dr Pousti and his staff for their services and the great results.

Dr Pousti is very Professional, Caring, knowledgeable, great bedside manners and perfectionist. He provided me with detailed explanations to my questions. He never tried to rush the physical exam and answering my questions. There was no extra waiting period during my visit. The staff was Exceptional

Testimonial:
First off, I must say that this review is overdue. Well, more like way overdue! I’ve been meaning to write this since the day I first walked into Dr. Pousti’s office. The staff was exceptional. Attentive, caring and kind. When I arrived for my consultation, I was very nervous. I had never had any sort of surgery in my LIFE, and they put my mind to ease. I think one of the best things is Dr. Pousti’s humor. For most of my life I was 5’8″ and 115 pounds. But after I had my daughter I went to 138lbs. Which I am quite happy with, except for the fact that my boobs decided to stay the same size. No growth there. So for the last 9 years, I felt very un-porportional, and have been thinking of getting a breast augmentation. When I walked into the office, being proportional was the #1 item that I stressed as wanting to accomplish with this surgery. And it was fully delivered. I wish I would have gotten it done sooner. The recovery was not bad, I was off meds by day three, and now I am about 6 weeks out.. You can barely notice the scaring. You have to keep those steri-strips dry ladies… its worth it. I couldn’t be happier and my husband, who liked me for how I was… is now super giddy every time he sees my new breasts ;). I think this is the first time in years that I can’t wait for bikini season! Thank you Dr Pousti and staff, I can’t even express how truly grateful I am for this experience.
Overall Fantastic! I would trust no other Dr. Dr Pousti Understood perfectly what I needed and fully delivered. I couldn’t be happier. Everyone in the office is extremely attentive and caring, and get to know you personally.

Testimonial:
I went to a consultation at another office before I found Dr. Pousti and his staff. Immediately, the atmosphere was more positive, upbeat, and everything I was looking for. The staff was awesome and really got me excited, I felt super comfortable with them. Dr. Pousti answered all of my questions and put me at easy, everything felt right. Surgery went smoothly; I got to the surgery center at 7:15 and went home around 12. The first couple of days my chest felt very sore and moving my arms was a little hard, but it wasn’t too bad. I’m 6 days post op and have been off my pain meds for 2 days now and was doing small things (even going on a boat ride) on day 3 after surgery. I’m so happy with my results of my natural looking 300cc silicone implants and couldn’t have picked a better, more caring doctor.
He gave me all the information up front, answered all of my questions, and did everything a good doctor should. He was very caring and expressed interest in not only me as a patient, but me as a person. I told Dr. Pousti what I wanted, and he did everything he could to give me a spectacular result. Overall great doctor and really cares about the patient.

Testimonial:
First I must say Dr. Pousti and his staff are A1! From the initial
consultation, we felt ZERO pressure to use Dr. Pousti and were
encouraged to explore other surgeons. Fortunately My wife and I had
already done lots of research into finding the best surgeon, we had
viewed many websites, before and after pictures and read many
testimonials, and we already had found her surgeon with Dr. Pousti.
My wife is a business professional and she does not want her
breasts to be the first thing people see coming through the door. We
were educated as to what was realistic, and what results could be
expected. Sisters not twins. On the final pre-op consultation, we
provided Doc photos of what end results we would like to see, with
instructions of “keep them guessing”. We were also given
prescriptions to have filled prior to operating day.
My wife’s breasts presented a particular challenge because she
has a serious scar on her left breast from spilling a deep fryer on
her when she was a child. We left implant size for Dr. Pousti to
decide what would provide the best end results, and he was able to
take that scar into consideration and do his magic. Ultimately, a
dual lift was performed with sub muscular silicone implants.
After surgery, Dr. Pousti personally called me and told me
everything went very well, and we would be happy with the results.
Every day, a nurse would call to check up on my wife and see how she
was feeling and doing. Three days post-op was first follow up
appointment. Blood flow to areolas and bandages were inspected. All
was looking good and an appointment was made to have the drains
removed 1 week post op. One week post-op appointment, Dr. Pousti
again checked that everything is in order and Nurse Heather skillfully
and painlessly removed the drains.
We can’t thank Dr. Pousti and his staff enough for the work that
was done. With things looking this good now. I’m sure when things
settle in, they will look GREAT. You may follow this saga on realself
with before during and after pictures.

Thank you

This is a long overdue review of Dr. Tom Pousti and his staff in San Diego.
After reseaching my inverted nipple condition, it was only in recent years that I discovered this was something which could be surgically corrected. I went with Dr. Pousti because of his expertise and experience in this area. In addition, I found both he and his staff very thorough and professional.
The surgery itself seemed surprisingly simple and swift. There was no pain during the actual surgery and only in the several days to follow, did I I occasionally feel very brief flashes of strain/pain in that breast area.
To summarize, I’m very happy to have had the procedure done and felt completely comfortable in the hands of Dr. Pousti and his staff throughout the experience, from first consult through post-op and follow up.

I had a breast augmentation by Dr Pousti almost 10 years ago, 2 kids later it’s time for a refresh! I had such an amazing experience with Dr Pousti the previous time I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else! I had my consultation today and he is still great as ever! His staff is as fantastic as they were 10 years ago! Dr Pousti has done the majority of my family, my aunt, sister and cousin, every one of us have been so pleased with our results. I’m super excited for my surgery in February!!

Testimonial:
Dr Pousti had done my breast implants several years ago. I went from a Large A to a Small C. Incisions are negligible, breasts are centered and perfectly proportionate to my body build. As a result, 6 of my friends used him for either Breast Aug, Breast Reduction, or Breast Reconstruction and everyone is still happy.
I visited Dr Pousti again recently to see if it was time to re-do my Breast Augmentation from a medical standpoint.
He recommended against it. He said of course there are Dr’s who will do it but I should wait 2 more years and check again. He said they look amazing are don’t touch them. He does not make money with this recommendation but it is a clear indication of his honesty and expertise.
Dr Pousti can be thoroughly trusted as a plastic surgeon.

I have very usual story about my breast: after breastfeeding 2 boys,my breast list fullness and 1 cup:( After watching Instagram photos of beautiful ladies wearing swim wear with nice breast, I decide that I need to have my breast done asap. I always was against any implants inside my body,but now I getting older and want to feel woman more,not like teenager with flat breast.
So,I decide to search for best Sergeon,not even in San Diego area,but also LA and Beverly Hills. After reading many reviews,checking photos before and after, I decide to meet Dr.Pousti.
He has very good personality. His experience is very high(400 surgeries per year,if I correct).
So I decide to go with him for my breast augmentation.
On the day of surgery we had final conversation about size and my wishes)
I didn’t want to have a huge/fake looking breast, I wanted natural slope and good proportions.
So I gave Dr.Pousti right to decide on size during surgery himself. I mentioned it my be beetween 250-300cc,I even wasn’t sure myself what size I want,because it’s so individual.
In the surgery he hold my hand and I woke up with my new breast.
Later I knew that Doctor used 255cc,as he said 275cc looked little to big for my thin body frame.
Now 10 days after sergery and I feel very good, first 3 days was very hard to get out of the bed,muscles had big pain (I had under muscle my implants).
Yesterday got couple wireless bra from Victoria’s Secret.
Thank you Dr.Pousti for making my breast look beautifull, feel myself more woman,happy person.

I’m a native San Diegan and have had three breast implant surgeries before coming to dr poutsi. I first had saline implants put in at age 22, through my belly button, which turned out to be a nightmare. I had capsular contracture and nine months later the same Doctor, in la jolla did them again through the nipple. I moved out of state for college and had issues again from them. I went to another doctor in Tulsa Oklahoma who did a pretty good job but they weren’t great. I later learned the vast differences between cosmetic and plastic surgeons. Please be aware that while cosmetic surgeons might have good instentions, their skill, qualifications, experience and care are not up to speed with plastic surgeons such as dr poutsi. Before even having implants put in at 22, I looked up dr poutsi but didn’t want to wait for an opening to have a consult so I went with the la jolla Doctor. I wish I had first gone to see dr poutsi but can’t go back in time. I am so happy I was finally able to see him and have a real, skilled expert work on me. I had surgery on October 15 and he did pocket repair and a slightly larger implant. I am still wearing my surgical bra so I can really tell yet how they look but I can already see a difference. The placement is 100 times better than I had before. He is the best doctor in San Diego and probably ranks in the top 10 in the nation. I can’t wait to be completely recovered because I know I will look and feel great. Dr poutsi is caring, calm, precise, skilled, and always makes me laugh at least twice when I see him. His staff is wonderful and very thoughtful too. I would ONLY recommend dr poutsi as a plastic surgeon and I am very grateful for what he has done for me.
Very skilled. An expert plastic surgeon. Very caring, knowledgable and has a calm presence put me at ease going in surgery. I had no doubt that he could help me and both of us think I will be very pleased with the results.

After getting very into fitness and losing weight, I also lost any bit of boob I had. I started looking into breast augmentation and had two people highly recommend Dr. Pousti so after further researching him and reading his reviews I scheduled my consultation. By the end of my consultation I was positive that he would be the right doctor for me and I scheduled my surgery that day. Throughout the entire experience him and his staff were extremely accommodating and answered any questions I had. On the day of surgery I had anticipated getting a 350/400 cc hoping for a large C/small D, but I ended up receiving a 495cc. Dr. Pousti knew the look I was going for and I could not be happier with the results. One month post op (under the muscle) I am feeling great and they are healing wonderfully. I am so happy that I did the surgery and Dr. Pousti and his staff were absolutely the best choice I could have made.
Dr. Pousti was extremely knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable in his abilities to preform my breast augmentation. He had me laughing during each of my visits and was very comforting prior to surgery when I got pretty nervous. I supplied him with multiple pictures of my desired look and he could not have matched that any better, I am so pleased with the results of my surgery and I couldn’t have been any happier. He had advised me that often people have regrets of going to small, which I did not want to happen, therefore I am so happy he chose to use the 495cc which I most likely would not have picked initially. I highly recommend him to anyone looking into breast augmentation!

Great Experience!
I have been thinking about getting a breast augmentation for about 7 years. Being 5’4” and 130lbs, I didn’t really feel proportionate with a 36B bra size, however with the variety of great push-up bras and bikinis available I questioned for years if the surgery would be worth it. Within the last couple of years, I noticed that I kept getting flatter and flatter and last summer even the push-up bikini didn’t make me feel comfortable at the beach. I decided it was time to get my boobs done. A few of my coworkers recommended Dr Pousti, so I made an appointment for a consultation for the end of September. I asked my friend to go with me. From the very first moment we walked in, we were welcomed with smiles and greetings. I was introduced to two of Dr Pousti’s patients who were there at their post-op follow ups. Both seemed to be very satisfied with their experience. The actual consultation was very informative and comforting. Dr Pousti and his employees made me feel very comfortable walking me through the process and answering all of my questions. My friend who has been to two consultations with other doctors, said that the experience with Dr Pousti was way different and better than the previous two she witnessed. I decided to schedule my surgery for October 6th. Dr Pousti suggested that I come see him one more time before the surgery, so that we can look at more pictures, and really make sure that we’re on the same page. So I did. The day before the surgery, Dr Pousti called to ask how I was doing and if I was ready for the big day. I told him that I was excited but also getting very nervous. He calmed me down and promises that I would be in good hands. The morning of the surgery, Dr Pousti again review with me what look I was hoping to achieve. Just like his staff at his office, his employees at the surgery center were super nice and comforting. I think that it makes a huge difference. The surgery went well and before I was discharged, Dr Pousti came to speak with me to assure me that everything went as planned. It’s been exactly two weeks since my surgery, so far I had two follow up visits and I get check up phone calls from his office every day. They answer all of my questions. I feel that I really am in great hands and that going with Dr Pousti was the best decision. I’m looking forward to see how my new boobs will turn out. I understand that it takes some time to see the full results, but so far I feel that everything is going well. Thank you Dr Pousti, Daisy, Cyndi and the rest of the staff for this great experience.

37 yrs old, I had 13 yr old saline implants. The left one had deflated @5 yrs ago, leaving me with crippling self esteem issues. When I told My original surgeon, he quoted me$4500 to remove the implants. Gave me No other options. Well couldn’t do that because I couldn’t afford it. I just
wanted my own little boobs back.I was so desperate I was going to deflate the other one at home with a needle/syringe. So I submitted a request to Real Self, and Dr. Pousti answered, telling me he and his staff would be happy to help me. So, I called and they gave me an appt almost immediately. Dr Pousti and his staff were awesome to me. He deflated my other implant with a needle and syringe for minimal cost. They worked with me re the cost, as well as the payment options. Most surgeons won’t do this procedure because they don’t really make any money off of it. He and his staff were more concerned with my well being and peace of mind than their pocket books. I like my little boobs again! Anybody who’s thinking of having their stupid hard fake looking saline implants removed or temp deflated before removal, whatever, call this doctor. They will help you. SO GLAD I DID IT.!!!! I’m forever grateful.
Dr. Pousti is kind, respectful, and professional. He and his staff manage to make you totally comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation.

I have been wanting to get a breast augmentation ever since I turned 18. I even went to a few consultations, but I decided to wait until after having kids. This was the best decision I could have made. After nursing my three children, my breasts were like a couple of deflated balloons. They were much smaller than before I had children, and the combination of them being so much smaller and deflated was very difficult for me emotionally, psychologically, and physically. Once my husband and I decided that we were not having anymore children, we began doing our research as to who we wanted to get consultation appointments from. Dr. Pousti came highly recommended from a friend. We created a list of five different doctors that we wanted consults with, but once we met with Dr. Pousti we immediately cancelled all other consults. From the very beginning this was an amazing and wonderful experience. The consult was very interactive with the doctor and his staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and genuinely cared about me as a person and didn’t treat me as just another patient. Dr. Pousti was very attentive, explained everything, weighed all options, and gave me a realistic expectation of what he could do for me. For Dr. Pousti safety comes first. And that was important to me. He wasn’t going to do anything that would put me or my body in harms way. We talked a lot about size, and how big we could go, while always keeping my safety and well being in mind. In the end Dr. Pousti delivered amazing results! He went as big as he safely could, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I now have full, large breasts that I feel confident with. I cannot recommend Dr. Pousti enough!! You will not be sorry if you go with Dr. Pousti.
Dr. Pousti is a wonderful doctor. He is very professional, kind, respectful, and his bedside manner is amazing. He held my hand until I was fully asleep because I was very nervous about being sedated for the procedure. Even while I was in recovery he stopped by before leaving to make sure I was doing ok, and took the time to talk to my husband and keep him informed on how everything went with my breast augmentation. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor than Dr. Pousti!

I have always been insecure with my body type. I am very athletic with a broad back very muscular no boobs. I got 465CC silicone under the muscle. I am 8 weeks out and still a little sore in one side. I just started running again this week so I think I babied it a little too much. I wish I could have gone bigger but with my structure I could not have gone any bigger without complications.
Pousti Plastic Surgery Dr. Pousti was an amazing/ nicest surgeon ever. He makes you feel very comfortable and is trustworthy. He gives his honest opinion on what will work best for you. His office workers were just as amazing always calling to check on me every day after my surgery for two weeks or so. Daisy was the best!!! I highly recommend Dr. Pousti the minute I met him I knew he was the surgeon I was going with.

I highly recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone considering breast reduction surgery. My experience with Dr. Pousti and all his staff has been EXCEPTIONAL since my first consult to today, 3 weeks post surgery.
I had been considering breast reduction surgery for many, many years and finally decided to do it this year. This was a huge step for me, to do something for myself with the goal of feeling good about my body again and not being totally self conscious of my huge, cumbersome, saggy boobs. I did thorough research about qualified doctors and the procedure itself to come up with my shortlist of doctors. The first doctor I met with was certainly qualified but his bedside manner was lacking and I felt pressured into making a decision. It just didn’t feel right. Then I met Dr. Pousti. Wow! what a difference. From the moment I met Dr. Pousti I felt comfortable and reassured that I was making the right decision. He is not only highly qualified but professional, unpretentious, articulate, charming and truly cares about his patients. All aspects of the breast reduction procedure were explained in detail and Dr. Pousti took the extra time to make sure all my questions were answered. There was absolutely no sales pressure to make a decision but I walked away from that consultation knowing that Dr. Pousti was going to be my surgeon. I felt so confident in him that I didn’t even bother to see the 3rd doctor I was intending to see before making a decision.
At my pre-op/markings visit, everything once again was thoroughly explained and I had my markings drawn by Dr. Pousti. I was really nervous (probably very normal) but Dr. Pousti and his staff went out of their way to make me less anxious and I left feeling confident and excited about the surgery. My surgery was on September 24th. I am pleased to say that the surgery went extremely well and I was lucky not to experience any pain afterwards. In fact I was off the pain medication in 48 hours. That being said, I did thoroughly rest and am following all instructions so as to heal as well as possible. I am now 3 weeks post surgery and am thrilled with the outcome so far. While I had an idea of what size breasts I wanted, I left the final decision to Dr. Pousti as to what would be more proportionate to my frame. He fixed the asymmetry and gave me smaller, perky breasts. I never dreamed I would have perky breasts ever again!
AMAZING!!
The after care has also been wonderful. I have received a phone call from Daisy every day asking how I am doing and Heather along with Dr. Pousti has been phenomenal in taking care of my post op needs, always with a smile on her face and compassionate manner. So, bottom line is that if you are considering breast reduction surgery go with Dr. Pousti. You won’t be disappointed.
P.S. I will try to have some photos uploaded soon so you can see the outcome.

My experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff was first class. My Earlobes had been stretched and damaged from gauging my ears for several years. The procedure was completely painless with mild pain or discomfort the following few days. The staff at Dr. Pousti office care about you, keeping you comfortable from the initial consultation through the follow ups after the procedure. They keep in touch to make sure everything is going good. ALL of the staff was great, but Heather, Vanessa and Dr. Pousti in particular were awesome. I would recommend calling Dr. Pousti if you’re interested in fixing your gauged Earlobes.
Top notch, first class.

I thought about implant removal for a few years before actually having it done. Now that I have had the implants removed, I couldn’t be happier! I was definitely fearful of what they would look like afterwards since I had them for almost 13 years. I knew that I would also need a lift to be happy with my results so I had an anchor lift done at the same time. It is now 3 weeks after surgery and I am very pleased with my decision and the great job done by Dr. Pousti. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting implant removal or lift procedures.
Dr. Pousti was very professional and very helpful. He was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had at any time.

Testimonial:
I am 7 days post-op (surgery date: 9/29 – breast augmentation with lift so two procedures, actually) – this is what I would call a preliminary review until I see the final results but I am very confident that I will absolutely love his work once I have my surgical bra and dressings (I still have gauze inserted in it (instructed not to remove until second post-op) which blocks the view but is protective, obviously). Post-op has been going as expected but to be honest, since I got a lift too, my recovery is a little longer. I would say the lift adds on 2-3 days of recuperation and relief/withdrawal from meds but it varies person to person. I personally have a low pain tolerance and the pain meds made me very emotional from day 3-7 and caused a bit of post-op blues (despite being ecstatic about the look of them, I felt sad about not being at work and the prospect of not hitting my sales numbers in October due to my procedure but also feelings of being burdensome on those around you and being dependent on others… these were emotional post-operative issues for me that you may or may not encounter – things like that, nothing to do with my breasts) but I am now recovering from that but you may want to be prepared for some emotional distress that the pain medications can produce but this definitely varies person to person. I also found it extremely annoying to sleep in a sitting position but thankfully, I have a boyfriend who is a total nagger Mc. Naggerson about it so basically, it hasn’t been an issue (but it sucks! who sleeps sitting?!) Also, Valium will help with this. Hell, Valium would enable you to sleep in any position so time that one towards bedtime and it help you a lot.

I have peeked through the dressings and I am VERY pleased with the size and the shape I see so far. The great thing about Dr. Pousti is he listens to you. Personally, I wanted to go bigger. I was very stubborn about wanting to increase my size from B to DD and he did that for me. He is adamant, however, about refusing to sacrifice safety for size but understands your personal desires and respects them completely which I really appreciated. He also suggested a lift which I wasn’t thinking about which is ironic since my #1 complaint about my natural breasts was how prematurely National Geographic they were becoming despite being in my 20’s with no kids; I just really initially hought “bigger!” not “bigger and less saggy!” I felt like as soon as he did his examination and mentally processed what I wanted, he came up with a vision and plan that aligned directly to what I wanted and that was really instrumental for me, in addition to research on his website and seeing the pictures which also speak volumes.

I think it is a really helpful to view a timeline of someone’s recovery for the first week. This was mine:

Day 1, 09/29: Surgery scheduled at 7am, check-in time 5:45am. Tiny bit of paperwork, a lot of waiting around in a examination room until surgery comes around. Heartbeat and blood pressure are checked. IV inserted. Nurse (who was a sweetie) had a hard time finding a vein (she kept saying they were runners) but thankfully, needles don’t really freak me out. It took her two times and then she found one and we were good. Anesthesiologist, Dr. Lori comes in and introduces herself to me. Very no non-sense lady, a Dr. and a very professional one. Not warm and fuzzy but respectable and gets straight to the point. More waiting, then Dr. Pousti arrives and marks my body, one of the nurses marks my stomach with SILICONE (still not quite off yet, lol!) – I am extremely against saline so I was all for that!
Entered operating room, cold as hell, hopped on operating table, Dr. Lori instantly injects anestechia “you’ll be falling asleep soon” and I am out as a light, wake up in recovery room, taken home within an hour and day 1 was actually relatively painless – general anesthesia definitely still in my system.
Day 2, 09/30 – very similar to day 1, not too much pain.
Day 3 – 3am, 10/01 – worst pain EVER! Excruciating. Woke up crying out to my mom to help me, general anesthesia completely worn off and I was a little past due on my next pain medication. Despite consistent pain meds that day, Day 3 was the absolute worst, I threw up and the pain was just constant.
Day 4: Pain subsided, Day 3 was the only day I would describe as excruciating, Day 4-5 were still very uncomfortable but pain did lessen. Itching occurred at this time.

Day 5: Discomfort. Not pain but a lot of discomfort and my nipples itch like CRAZY!

Day 6: I experienced post-operative blues this day. Be prepared to feel emotional. You just had major surgery. I LOVE my results but hated feeling like my life is on hold and I was very antsy at this point. Normal. Discomfort, little pain, LOTS OF ITCHING.

Day 7 (today): Still very emotional but this is decreasing. My mother took care of me the first week and I think after the first week, she needed a break and it was helpful to go back to my place (I have a live-in bf) who was happy to take on the second week until I am pretty much back to be being independent. I would advise to have two support systems, if possible. The first week is very draining for everyone, the second week, it’s best to give that person a rest and have a friend help you with the minimal additional help needed.

I hope this helps. I know it is long but anyone who goes through surgery knows that this is a journey, an emotional and physical one that requires mental and physical strength, resilience and patience. I feel mentally stronger having gone through this experience.
Extremely friendly and calm demeanor, wonderful bedside manner, very knowledgeable, instantly develops rapport and trust, eager to achieve your tailored results, treats you as an individual, not a number. Talent: look at his website, that is what convinced me – he does beautiful work. I personally liked that he tends to do larger implants. He is very good at achieving a “tear-drop” effect which was also CRUCIAL for me as I can’t stand the “melon” look. His office is very sweet and followed up with me via phone even on a Saturday. Nurses often put you on hold when you ask questions but they are not plastic surgeons, they shouldn’t be expected to have the same amount of knowledge than Dr. Pousti himself. Wait times in his office are also a little much but nothing to complain about – lots of magazines, they provide free granola bars, tootsie rolls and bottles of water and hey, it means he’s a busy guy in demand. All in all, very pleased but I need to see the final result to really solidify my review. So far, so good.

Love them!!! I am 7 days post-op and dr. Pousti gave me everything I could ever dream of! I wanted larger DD’s with a perky lift and that’s exactly what I got. He’s amazing!!!! I am thrilled with the size- it’s perfect! I know it is early in the game so I hesitate posting a review this early on but so far, they look great.

He often requires you to make a vision board with pictures of what you want and don’t want and reviews the board throughout the surgery making sure he achieves what you want. He’s great and I highly recommend him. He’s very nice and has a great bedside manner. Only downside is post-op pain. I found this procedure to be painful despite medication but it worth it. I also hate waxing my eyebrows but I’ll do it forever because I like the results. Everything has an upside and a downside. Recovery is no walk in the park but I knew what I signed up for and the results alone override the discomfort afterwards. Zero pain during surgery, the residual remnants of general anesthesia wear off after 24 hours and that’s when it’s ouchy time full force for 2-3 days (equate to an elephant sitting on your chest), then lethargy and discomfort for another week or so. I still feel exhausted and uncomfortable but every day gets more and more tolerable. I feel emotionally stronger having gone through with this procedure, as well. This was my decision, my money and I own every bit of it and that has an empowering effect, as well. I’m curious if other women felt this way, too. Price is fair. Dr pousti is extremely sought-after and is widely known for being one of the most talented surgeons out there. Don’t skimp on smth like this. It is a major surgery, you need a board certified ps with privileges at a surgical center with an anesthesiologist who has been on his team for years and years. You deserve the best and he’s cream of the crop.

my motivation started after I had my son !!! I was a very full D cup. And after him they obviously grew tremendously and the shrunk and left me with alot of extra skin and some sagging .. I went and saw many doctors and it took me about 5 years to eventually do it ! Dr pousti is who did my surgery and he was amazing ! I was verrrry scared going on and not knowing what to expect ! Today is post op day 1 and the pain is pretttty bad alot of burning and stretching and tightness! Highly suggest to stay on top of your meds and not wait. What also has helped me is to not Kay completely flat and more at a angle its easier to have someone help you get up and down in case of having to use the restroom.
He was very helpful he has such a calm demeanor. Which makes you relax and he makes sure you understand that everything will be ok. He explains to you what will.look correct and what Wong he is very thorough!! The day of surgery I walked into waiting room and he held my hand and then I was out he takes very good care of you I highly recommend him

Dr. Hinkleman, Ericka, Natalie, and Heather were outstanding. As prepared as I thought I was going into surgery, I started getting scared and my nerves got the best of me as I started to cry.
Those lovely ladies rubbed my shoulders, held my hand, and kept reassuring me as I began getting anesthesia. I felt so much better with them there. I really feel like they went above and beyond to comfort me and that they should be recognized for their bedside manner. Dr. Pousti was awesome as always, but those ladies helped me overcome my fear when I really needed it. The office staff (Debbie) was also great. I would definitely recommend this surgery center to friends and family. Thank you!

Dr. P and his whole staff are so amazing! I felt comfortable the moment I walked into the office. Dr. P was very honest and answered every single question I had with confidence. I knew I was making the right decision by chosing him to do my breast augmentation and lift. At my first office visit, I was able to talk to some of Dr. P’s previous patients and see their results. Each patient was completely satisfied with his amazing work. Even after my first visit, I received a call from the office to see if I had any other questions which was very comforting.
At my pre-op appointment, we discussed in detail the entire process from the pre-op prep, to the actual surgery, recovery room and also my recovery at home. I am 100% confident in Dr.P being my surgeon.
I am very excited to have my surgery in two days!! I can’t wait.

Dr. Pousti is one of the best plastic surgeons in his field with respect to tummy tuck procedures. I wish that I had gone to Dr. Pousti the first time as I made the mistake of going to a different plastic surgeon in December 2014 to perform my tummy tuck. I chose to have a tummy tuck after two (2) pregnancies left me with excessive loose skin and stretched abdominal muscles. However I naïvely believed that a plastic surgeon could skillfully perform any plastic surgery procedure. The truth is that plastic surgeons develop a specialty over time just as any doctor.

I felt devastated and heartbroken when I saw the final results of my initial tummy tuck. Afterwards, I had consultations with three (3) highly-esteemed plastic surgeons located in Beverly Hills, Newport Beach and San Diego (Dr. Pousti). Each surgeon stated that the results I received were less than optimal. One surgeon characterized the appearance of my tummy this way: “You look like someone who once had a tummy tuck, got pregnant and had a baby.” Another surgeon stated flatly that my results were “unacceptable.” I broke down crying after hearing these dismal assessments.

The happy ending to this story is that I finally have the flat midsection that I wanted to begin with. Dr. Pousti did an amazing job in successfully tightening my abdominal muscles and removing loose skin. My midsection looks beautiful now. If you should find yourself, as I did, in the unfortunate predicament of ending up with a botched tummy tuck by a lesser skilled surgeon, Dr. Pousti is highly knowledgeable and experienced in performing revisionary surgery for previous tummy tuck patients–he even has a site on his web page devoted to revisionary tummy tuck.

Dr. Pousti’s staff (especially Vanessa) was incredibly supportive and kind as well throughout the entire process, which was quite emotional for me, so I cannot post this review without conveying my gratitude and appreciation to them.

The important life lesson for me was this: Always do your research, read reviews and understand what the surgeon’s specialty is (ask him/her how many tummy tucks they performed in the past 12 months), because it’s your body and you need to ensure that you choose the right surgeon to help you achieve your goals. I highly recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone looking to have a successful tummy tuck procedure.

I was tired of my implants and didn’t want to have to undergo any future surgeries, so I decided to have my implants removed and a breast lift without new implants. I wasn’t terribly concerned with what my breast size would be after the surgery and knew that there would be a substantial loss of volume and fullness. I felt that the benefits of not having backaches, headaches, difficulty exercising and finding clothing and bathing suits, was well worth it.

During my initial consultation with Dr. Pousti we discussed the limitations of the procedure I wanted and what method would help me achieve the best results. My PS recommended I have the procedure completed in two steps, first by deflating my implants and giving my tissue three months to bounce back before completing the implant removal and lift. One of my biggest concerns was correcting asymmetry and by giving my skin a chance to tighten back up my PS would be able to complete the lift without having to do as much guess work over what was tissue and what was implant, resulting in a better outcome.

I had my implants deflated in May and my surgery in September. I am at about five weeks post op and could not be more pleased with the results! I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Pousti and his Team. They are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helped guide me through the entire process.

I’m a very fit 20 year old male. I have a solid chest, which when combined with prominent (long, pointy) nipples looked strange, especially when wearing thin tight fitting clothing such as a dress shirt. Dr. Pousti advised me that the best option was a nipple reduction, that is “flattening” the nipples. We scheduled the procedure for two months later. When I came into the office for the procedure, I asked Dr. Pousti if I would be able to lift boxes and such since I was moving a week later. On the spot, Dr. Pousti decided to reschedule the surgery, AT NO EXTRA COST. The second time around everything went fine. Dr. Pousti is a humorous man, and made me very comfortable before and during the surgery, which was done very professionally with an excellent team. There was no pain, and only local anesthesia was needed. I was bandaged up and allowed to drive myself home. The first couple days I felt some pain and couldn’t do much activity at all, but it soon got better and a week later I went in for a checkup, at which point Dr. Pousti allowed me to resume physical activity and showering. Two weeks later, the inflammation is all but gone, the wounds have healed almost completely and no-one has been able to tell I even had an incision. All of my clothing now looks much better on me and I am very happy with the results. I am very thankful to Dr. Pousti for his work and would truly recommend him to anyone seeking a cosmetic procedure.
An excellent character. Professional yet relaxed and funny. He establishes a personal relationship with his clients, and truly cares for each one.

I have never felt like my breasts were beautiful until after my breast augmentation. Now I feel so sexy, no matter what I’m wearing. I’m also a webcam model and the larger breasts were GREAT for business! I recieve so many compliments from my friends and customers. I feel great! I have returned to my full exercise routines and have discovered a whole new world of “underwire sports bras” … these are a miracle. I never thought it would be comfortable to run or do burpees etc. but the sports bras available (namely Panache brand) make this possible.

The funny thing about going from being small breasted to very large breasted literally from one day to the next is that my perception of myself took time to catch up with the world’s perspective of me. Even in my surgical bra, when I was still in pain from the surgery, it’s like men could sense my large breasts. I turned heads where I felt invisible before. Right away. It’s amazing. It’s powerful.
My husband and I were prepared to fly from across the country to visit Dr. Pousti, and had been planning to do this for years. He is held in very high esteem among “large breast” surgeons, nationwide, and for good reason. He is amazing. Luckily my husband and I ended up living in San Diego by the time we were financially ready to visit with Dr. Pousti. We could not have been happier with his staff and with his personality. They are just all around great people. I wish I could hang out in their office with them all the time! They really make me feel welcome and special. I cannot stress enough how sweet this doctor is. Dr. Pousti is an incredible guy, and equally amazing as a surgeon. I could not have asked for better bedside manner! He was so genuine and kind to me from the moment I met him, the morning of the surgery, and in every single interaction I’ve had with him. When I met him, he was very candid; he was frank enough to tell me that he was not comfortable going the full 800CC that I had originally requested. He said that going this large off the bat could cause complications such as “bottoming out”. He told me 550cc would be the maximum that my body could handle at that time. He didn’t know exactly the size of implant he could use until I was actually in surgery, but he did it! Gave me two very amazing 550cc implants. I learned that my breasts were “constricted” the morning of my consultation. Constricted breasts are breasts that have not “dropped” as much as they should have, the crease underneath is higher than it could be. This is something that made my surgery a bit more complicated, but he shifted the crease down and made it look amazing. The morning of my surgery, he said something I’ll never forget; “I want to make you into my masterpiece.” He says this is a goal he has with every surgery. I was floored by his thoughtfulness and genuine concern for my comfort. He is truly and simply an expert. He held my hand as I fell asleep for surgery. These are just examples of how loving he is. My post-op appointment was equally comforting. I’m not going to lie; I was in so much pain! He comforted me and everybody assured me they looked great, even if I felt that they looked a little strange at that time. He gave me a gorgeous bouquet of flowers that morning! How sweet!!

I would highly recommend Dr Pousti! The list of amazing reasons would be far too long for one review. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about my entire experience! I am 4 weeks out from my silicone breast implant procedure & couldn’t be happier with my results. Dr Pousti & his wonderful staff had so much patience with me while I was trying to decide exactly what I wanted. Everyone showed sincere care & interest in my personal story which made me feel so special, not just another patient. Dr Pousti made me feel 100% comfortable & was so genuine during each visit before AND after surgery. I loved how honest he was when explaining what my body could and couldn’t handle. This was so important when it came to having a positive & safe outcome. Which is exactly what I got. I am so extremely happy with my results. I am proudly recommending him to all my friends & family. I am so confident that anyone would be more than happy by choosing him for any procedure!

I’ve wanted a lift/augmentation since I turned 18. After 2 kids, I wanted it even more. At age 40, I lost 90 pounds and decided it was finally time to improve my body with the help of Dr. Pousti. I am very happy with my end result. It gives me the satisfaction and confidence that I always lacked when it came to my breasts. My body reacted slightly strange and I experienced a large hematoma in my right breast. But Dr. Pousti and his staff called me and checked on me DAILY. They made time to see me every few days until my breasts healed. I was scheduled for a second surgery to correct the breast with the hematoma in which Dr. Pousti was going to do for no charge. Fortunately, my body started healing and we cancelled the second surgery. Dr. Pousti is absolutely concerned with his patients health and concerns as opposed to making $$$. I have already recommended a handful of friends to him. I will continue to recommend people to Dr. Pousti. Dr. Pousti and his staff are definitely first class and treat their patients with the utmost respect and kindness.
Dr. Pousti makes plastic surgery seem effortless. He is an amazing plastic surgeon who is kind, caring, attentive and absolutely has his patient’s best interest at heart. I always felt like highly regarded and understood. He always took the time to answer every question and to listen to every concern. Dr. Pousti is definitely in the elite category!

I’m currently 12 days post-op BA and anchor lift and at this point, I couldn’t be more pleased with my results. I got 375cc Mentor, smooth, moderate profile, saline implants, placed under the muscle and overfilled. I only had one consult with Dr. Pousti, which was all it took… that appointment turned into my pre-op visit and I had surgery 2 weeks later. He made me feel so comfortable, included my husband in the process, and addressed any questions or concerns that I had with a great level of professionalism, but without making me feel dumb. I’ve been so impressed by Dr. Pousti and his staff!!! From my consult/pre-op, to the day of surgery, and even their post-op care has been phenomenal. Helen, Cindi, Vanessa, Heather, (I’m sure I’m missing some- sorry ladies) are just a few members of his exceptional staff. Daisy calls me for post-op followup calls on a daily basis and I look foward to hearing her friendly voice. She’s great about answering all of my questions. I honestly cannot say enough about the level and quality of service provided by Dr. Pousti. If you’re considering plastic surgery, go with Dr. Pousti!!!

Where to start… Dr.Pousti is the best! I’ve never felt better in my entire life. That meaning even before children. He exceeded my expectations. He knew what my body needed & trusted him to do it. His lines are beautiful. I’ve seen a lot of mommy makeovers & my incisions are by far the best. They are clean small & virtually skin colored after healing. It’s beautiful. The staff is amazing. I felt so cared for. They called almost everyday. The times I had a question or concern, they were right on it. I will be going back to Dr.Pousti for any future procedures. One of my favorite things he offers is the option to talk to other patients. That made me feel so comfortable. I spoke to plenty of women after mine & would do so anytime. Every girl on the surgery team & office is so sweet! My fav’s were Cindy & Heather but honestly I didn’t meet anyone I didn’t like. Go to him you won’t be disappointed 😉
Dr Pousti has the best bedside manner. Very professional & friendly. Made me feel special & unique

Testimonial:
I came to Dr. Pousti 5 years out from a traditional breast augmentation, over the muscle. When researching the best doctors for the original procedure, Dr. Pousti was on the list, but I lived in Illinois and did not want to travel. I was borderline lift at that time. Since then, my breast have continued to sag dramatically. Three years ago I relocated to California. I was excited to be able to talk to Dr. Pousti about what he could do for me. I consulted Dr. Pousti and he gave me several options, allowing me to be in control of how I wanted this handled. His mannerism was professional, friendly, comfortable, and nothing but pleasant. During the consult and pre-op visit, not only the Doctor, but his staff went above and beyond with courtesy and respect. They made me feel like I was the only patient in the clinic. Every detail was explained and every question was answered. The day of surgery, Dr. Pousti again explained the entire procedure in detail to ensure that I was getting exactly what I wanted. The outcome is AMAZING! I am 6 days post op and couldn’t be happier. I had my post-op appointment and had my drains removed PAIN FREE! I am returning to work in a few days after expecting to be out much longer. His care and compassion, personalized approach, and dedication to his job is without words. Prior to having my procedure with him, I had several friends ask me about getting a breast augmentation. We recommended Dr. Pousti without hesitation. Three of my friends have been to him, even before I did, and had phenomenal results. I knew I would be satisfied as well. A huge thanks to Dr. Pousti and his amazing staff at the clinic and the surgery center. He is definitely the best around and I would recommend his services for anyone needing any kind of cosmetic surgery. We only have one body and should seek the best of the best to look our BEST! Thank you Dr. Pousti and your amazing staff.
From~ Your VIP patient!!!!
Dr.’s staff called me every day following surgery, including the evening of to make sure that I had everything I needed, no questions, and no concerns. I even received flowers upon leaving my post op visit. Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!!!

I got my BA done on June 11th by Dr. Pousti, and it has been great!!!
I’m in my 3 month post-op now, and everything is perfect and no regrets!
after years of research, I visited 2 other offices, one in Beverly Hills and one in Orange County, prior to meet Dr. Pousti and his staff, and I am SOOOOO glad I made a right decision by choosing the best surgeon in town. The moment I met Dr. Pousti and Vanessa I knew I’m finally getting my BA done after contemplating for such a long time. Dr. Pousti is very professional, caring, and humorous. I know this because of my previous experience with other surgeons’ initial consultation. I do regret driving such a long distance to other offices and wasted a lot of time and money, whereas Dr. Pousti was only 30 minutes away from my house. Despite the fact, I’m glad I had visited other offices before meeting Dr. Pousti though because I’ve learned to appreciate him and his staff even more. =)

His staff is amazing!!! My initial consultation was a full HOUR and a half long which is unheard of. I’ve been to the offices where their consultation lasted 15 minutes…Really. I felt rushed.
Vanessa was very helpful. She gave me an idea how I would be like after surgery by taking 3D pictures.
His staff pretty much walked through my BA journey together. Now that I reminiscent the first month post op…..I wouldn’t have been able to get this done without his staff. The girls are knowledgeable and genuine. They called my EVERY DAY post op. Yeah. EVERY DAY!!! and made sure I was doing okay. I go see him and his staff periodically, and that is another reason I really appreciate Dr. Pousti’s office. THE AFTERCARE.

My outcome is amazing just the way I wanted them to be. Dr. Pousti is a very skillful surgeon, which I have no doubt about that, but what I appreciate him the most is his communication skill with his patient. He informed me to study, search, and gather pictures of my ideal breast that I want to achieve after surgery. He mentioned that everyone has different views and different ways to describe things, so in order for us (doctor-patient) to be on the same page, a thorough communication is must. I agreed 100% with him on that. Before I met him, I was all about the cup sizes and what kind of cc I should get. We studied a lot of pictures together before the surgery and agreed on Yes’s and No’s.

All in all, my experience with Dr. Pousti is phenomenon!! I highly recommend Dr. Pousti and his staff to anyone who is looking for a best surgeon in town. I’m very happy with my result! =)
Dr. Tom Pousti is the best surgeon! =)

I’m 17 years old and I cannot wait for my breast reduction next week. I’m a very confident young girl but my breasts are my biggest insecurity, and pretty much biggest health problem(back pains) I don’t have a tiny frame, but I’m quite average at 140 and 5’6. I wear about a size 6, and I spill out of my 32DDD bra. I can remember being 14 in physical education and trying to run the mile but spilling out of my 34D bra. I thought it was normal for that to happen to girls with boobs after puberty but now I’m beginning to realize how much bustier I was compared to everyone else. All my school dances were so difficult to shop for because I had to shovel my breasts into the dress, or wear a dress that just didn’t fit right, and ordering online was NEVER an option(you’ll see the inserted picture….)…They just kept growing and by the time I was 15 my back was killing me. I went to the chiropractor a ton, they took X-rays and told me my back was beginning to curve. I didn’t realize until much recently that my back pain were from my breasts. I’d begged my mom about the procedure for so long and finally one day when we were shopping and trying on sports bras she noticed how saggy my breasts were for a 17 year old girl and let me make my consultation appointment. I did not go through insurance because my mom wanted me to go to the surgeon whom she got breast IMPLANTS from 15 years prior. Yes, my mom used to have AA breasts and somehow I got bigger than a DDD. My consultation was scheduled for the 16th of September but they had cancelations so I was able to come in on the 3rd. It’s crazy to think I have my surgery scheduled for next week when I was supposed to have my CONSULTATION on the 16th! I wouldn’t have even had my consultation yet! My doctor told me I was a good candidate for this surgery. He wanted me to go home and think a while to make sure I want this surgery and I had no second thoughts. I called and booked the soonest surgery slot available right when they opened the next day. A few days later I had my pre-op and got my prescriptions(Percocet, nausea meds, and an antibiotic) and my mom and I filled out all the papers. My breast reduction is scheduled for the 22nd(a week from tomorrow) and I could not be more stoked! I am hoping to reduce as small as I can for my body type. I want a full B cup or a small C.
I absolutely love Dr. Pousti he is straightforward and won’t do anything that won’t satisfy me.

“Dr. Pousti and his team are phenomenal! Heather and Vanessa are fantastic and have been a life saver for me through my entire process. My outcome so far I couldn’t be happier with. I have had a few little hiccups due to me not taking it easy enough…Dr Pousti and his team has been there for me every step of the way. They are understanding of patients who can tend to have anxiety and paranoia 🙂 I cannot thank them enough for the beautiful work he accomplished and for their professionalism as well as making you feel like you are more than just another client. I recommended him to numerous friends and my mom is actually going in for a consult now too!”

I am now 4 days post surgery and cannot be happier! Pousti has the most caring employees. I have received multiple calls checking in on me and seeing if I have any questions. I go in today to hopefully get my drains out! But his ladies Heather, Daisy and Vanessa are angels! If you are thinking of getting anything done you must go see him and his staff if you want the best care possible! They don’t just do your work and send you on your way. You become part of their family. I love love love them! And I am actually bringing my mom with me today so she can meet Dr Pousti and his fabulous ladies for possible work done! The best! Don’t even bother going anywhere else. And on top of everything my boobs are already looking incredible! Can’t wait to fully see them!!!!

First off, if you’re against plastic surgery then just gtfo this page because I made this decision for myself and not for you. Secondly, if you are mirin’ my new look then thank my daddy (my husband). He has been my biggest support throughout my journey and he has been the sexiest shirtless nurse a girl could ask for. I could not have done this without him and he is definitely going to be forever reaping the benefits 0:-)

For those of you who have been following my BA journey via Yelp, I am happy to say that my ~big~ day has finally come. It’s been almost a year since my consultation and I’ve had to reschedule several times due to being a naughty little girl. That’s all over now and I just have to wait for the sisters to settle in so here’s an overview of my experience for now:

Consultation: It’s $100 to see the doctor and that $$$ goes towards the procedure if you decide to follow through. I suggest that if you have been thinking about it then just DO IT! My biggest regret was not doing it sooner. I also suggest that you see a doctor that is certified and that you are comfortable with. During the consultation with Pousti, I discussed goals, tried on sizers (this is fun and you should bring a supportive friend), I took/edited digital pictures of my own girls, I got a quote, asked/answered questions, and met with the friendliest staff ever. More importantly, I met with the game changer, Dr. Pousti. We have been A1 since day 1. I would recommend him to anyone considering BA. Seriously! Check out his reviews on RealSelf.com!

Procedure: I arrived at the hospital 2 hours prior to the procedure. I filled out some papers and waited until they called me into the pre-op room. I got to meet with a couple of nurses and the anesthesiologist. I got dressed into a hospital gown, I got an IV, and Dr. Pousti came in to draw all over my naked body. Shortly after, they called me into the operating room to take the best nap ever. I woke up in the recovery room and my husband picked me up. My incisions were though the nipple. I went partial submuscular and I went with silicon implants. I have 465 CC’s on both sides. Keep in mind that this is MY boob job and if you are considering then it is likely that the amount of CC’s will not be the same for you. If you type Tom Pousti into YouTube you will be able to view videos of the actual procedure in the operating room. It’s pretty rad.

Recovery: Not bad at all!!!! This is day two and the most difficult thing I am experiencing is getting up from laying down because it seriously feels like I’m attempting to bench press 150 lbs and I just dropped the bar on my chest because I gave up. It feels soooo heavy. It feels so heavy that I keep feeling like my boobs are going to fall off when I stand up too. Fortunately, this is normal! Besides this, I feel great! I nap a lot with my cat and I can’t wait to give another update a few months from now.

I want to marry him. He is amazing, like I said, he was A1 from day one. I saw another doctor before him and I probably would have stuck with Pousti if I had seen him first. He and his staff are so friendly and professional. It warms my heart because they truly care about your entire journey. They called me every single day up until my post-op appointment and I really appreciated that.

I’m 21 years old, and since I was 15 I was ashamed of my boobs shape. This year I decided to have a surgery so I started looking for a specialist to correct tubular breasts. I found Dr.Pousti who is an awesome surgeon and now I couldn’t be happier with the results.
I had tubular breast correction and areola reduction 6 weeks ago. I got 330cc high profile silicone on the left side and 350cc on the right side.
Now I am very happy about my new appereance, they look great!

STATS:

Pre BA: 36A

Testimonial:
I have had a pear shaped body since before puberty and my thighs, both inner and outer, have always been out of proportion with the rest of my body. After the birth of my second child I was on a regular exercise regimen and within a year was back at a size 2, but my thighs remained disproportionately bulky. Pregnancies and age had left my flank areas also with excess bulk that I could not reduce or tone, even when at or near my ideal weight.

I am a lawyer and a scientist and work in the local medical/biotechnology industry. I researched several local surgeons, some of whom I had been referred to by friends. In my research, Dr. Pousti’s name and reputation continually rose to the top of the group in all aspects – education, certification, experience, patient satisfaction and results. I made my consultation appointment with every intention of visiting at least two other doctors, but after meeting Dr. Pousti and his staff, I felt no need to look further.

From my first appointment, I found Dr. Pousti to be warm, knowledgeable, understanding, and candid. Risk was my top concern during the initial meeting; with two young kids at home, I needed to understand the extent of the risk before I could commit. Dr. Pousti fully disclosed the risk associated with liposuction surgery. Part of my job as an attorney is to read people and recognize when someone is holding back. I had no reservations with Dr. Pousti. I left my consultation appointment with the sense that I had full understanding of what my procedure would entail, the risk and what I could realistically expect from my results.

In terms of pain and recovery, there were no surprises. I had the procedure done on a Wednesday, was able to work from home a bit on Thurs/Friday and returned to the office the following Tuesday. Dr. Pousti personally checked in with me the evening after the surgery and the following day; his staff checked in with me every day after up until my one month post-op appointment. One week post-op, the remaining discomfort was manageable with Ibuprofen.

The swelling from liposuction does not fully resolve until months after the procedure, so I cannot yet report on my final results. It has been 6 weeks since my procedure and I am thrilled with my results so far. I am wearing skirts and other clothes that before the procedure I was too self-conscious to wear. We are headed on vacation for Labor Day Weekend and for the first time in my life I bought a bathing suit (in lieu of board shorts) to wear at the pool. The incisions are tiny dots that nobody would notice and I’m sure will eventually disappear completely. I have no excess skin or any other skin issue that reveals I have had liposuction.

During one of my pre-op appointments, Dr. Pousti was explaining what liposuction can and cannot achieve. With all due candor, he indicated that he may not be able to make me look like I did when I was 16. He was actually right, but not in the way he intended. Even though I don’t yet know what my final result will be, I now have contour and proportion that surpasses that which I had at 16.

I had my salines replaced with silicone a month ago. I am extremely happy with my results Dr Pousti performed. He did my original saline implants 10 years ago and I had no problems, I wanted silicone implants so I came back to see him. His staff is amazingly sweet and caring. Vanessa and Daisy called me on a daily basis for two weeks after my surgery to ensure all was well. My daughter also wanted implants and I referred her to Dr Pousti. He and his staff are the best!!!

Testimonial:
I am a 30 year old mother who has breastfed 3 children. I was 18 when I had my first child. When I got pregnant for the 1st time, my breasts were small and perky… oh how kids can change things 🙂
My kids are now 12, 8, and 5 1/2. My last child left my breasts completely deflated. I’ve known for about 5 years that I wanted to get my boobs “fixed” eventually, but I wanted to make sure that we were completely done having kids. Now that I know our family is complete, I made the choice to finally go through with surgery.
After doing tons of research about plastic surgeons in my area, I made an appointment with Dr. Pousti. When I made the consultation appt, the staff advised me to go online and look at before and after pictures to see exactly what I want and what I definitely do not want, and bring them with me to my consultation. I didn’t know there were so many different results possible for surgery!!! Everything from implant type, size, shape, ‘side boob’, side view, distance apart, how high or low you want them placed. Wow. It was a lot to take in. I know that I want natural looking breasts, that people either assume ARE natural, or keep them guessing. Every person is different, but for me, I do not want super round, fake looking breasts placed super high on my chest. That’s just not my goal. I’m tired of spending $100 on a bra to get the desired effect I’m going for. I ultimately want very natural looking, fuller breasts, that ‘fall’ a little but that don’t drag to my knees :)That being said, I anticipated I would need a lift also, I just didn’t know if implants alone could do the trick or if I definitely needed a lift.
I had my consult with Dr. Pousti last night and it went great. His staff is friendly and accommodated my desire to get in asap. He went over his accreditations as well as some other details about his personal life. Cindi was also really helpful and personable. I brought my husband with me to my appt and I loved that they involved him in the process. I got to try on fake breasts to see what size I needed to achieve my goals, and took 3d images to see what I could look like after surgery. I was so impressed, that my consultation turned into my pre-op visit. I’m scheduled for surgery in 13 days!!!! I’m excited and terrified all at the same time. I’m a total chicken and although I have given birth to 3 children, I’m scared of surgery and the pain associated with it. I’m also worried about the recovery, as anyone with kids can tell you, life gets busy and it’s hard to make “me” time. I’ve decided to go with an anchor lift with 400-450cc silicone gel implants, placed under the muscle, with moderate positioning. My goal cup size is a full C or D. Dr Pousti and his staff went over everything with me about my expectations and theirs as well as what I can expect from my recovery and my results. I will be posting before, goal, and after photos soon. I hope this helps other women as much as the reviews I’ve read helped me. Keep you posted!

Well I’m new here, but I just wanted to thank all you ladies for the help you have provided me. So I figured I should do the same, who knows someone might have the same stats as me!
Here are my stats:
5’1
109-116lbs (I’m a yoyo when it comes to my weight)
I’m a 34b according to Victoria’s Secret, but really I feel like a 36A.
I’m hoping to be a small D // full C
Aerola incision// under the muscle
Oh and my nipples, I don’t know if they’re inverted or somewhat inverted, but I hate them. I’m hoping with this surgery it can fix that problem!!

Where to begin ! I’ve never liked my boobs. I’ve been wanting to do this procedure for a quite some time now, but never actually pulled the trigger until now!
Growing up I never had boobs. And I never liked mine. Ever. I’m just not comfortable with them at all. I’ve wore padded bras my whole life, the bombshell from Victoria’s Secret was my best friend. Not to mention I was a false advertisement. Haha
I’m married, and my husband was not a fan of me doing this at first, but he’s come around and just wants me happy. Hey happy wife happy life ???? jk. I don’t pull that card haha.. His only concern is that I come out of surgery alive and well. And also going too big.. as to me, my concern is going too big or too small.. ????
I am a mother of 4, that’s when I actually grew temporary boobs!! Like most women on here, we all wanted those milk boobies to stay, but that didn’t last long for me (womp womp womp) I can’t say I boobiefed (I say “boob” cuz I don’t like the word “breast” ) I tried to boobie feed but it just never worked out for me. I was a full C when I was preggo. And it was nice while it lasted.
I made 450 cc rice sizers at home before any of my consults. I’d rather know what I’m trying to get than be like umm yea I just want boobs. Although it is like I just want boobs. But my perfect boobs!!! But I also know rice sizers aren’t accurate.
I’m looking into the 425-450 cc range. But idk if that’s too big now. I’ve read that if you do go under the muscle you lose 25cc. So I figured if I do 450, I’d be at 425cc. I’m not positive that I’m correct I’m just putting two and two together.

Anywho! I had 3 consultations. One with a Dr. From upland ca don’t recall his name, but I do know that I wasn’t comfortable with him at all. I really felt that he was only in it for the money. I didn’t feel that patient/dr connection. That your suppose to feel..
My second consultation was with Dr. Pousti and the last consult was with Dr. Bruce Kadz.
I went to my consultation with Dr. Pousti on my bday, And let me tell you, it was AHHHMAAZING! I know most women say about their Drs but he is truly great. From the moment you walk you feel that welcoming feeling.. It was a fantastic first experience. The patient coordinator her name was Vanessa, she is soo wonderful, helpful, pretty, sweet and kind! I spent most of my time with her and I didn’t mind, she seemed very knowledgeable at what she was talking about. In fact all the ladies do. Dr Pousti is amazing, he was thorough, honest, kind. He seems like a real genuine man. He answered most of questions, I only say that cuz it was the questions that I had at the time. At my consult I tried on sizers. Oh! And they also have this cool machine where they take your picture and you can play around with the sizes and shapes and profiles. It was like a 3d machine. It’s called “vectra something” . It was cool. Back to my sizers I tried on the 350cc and I didn’t like it all. No offense to the ladies that got that size it just wasn’t for me. I told them get me out of the 300cc range, again no offense. After that we tried on 450cc and I loved it! Once again I know it’s not accurate, but it gives you an idea. After that we tried the 500cc, I loved it too, BUT I know that might too big for my stats. I don’t want to be unbalanced with everything else on my body. I don’t mind the fake look because realistically anything is going to look fake because I started off with nothing! But I don’t want it to look too fake.
They gave me my quote and I went home to think about everything.. With all that being said, it’s obvious I went with Dr.pousti! Why wouldn’t I. Is it bad that I only went to 2 consults? I mean I know your suppose to keep your options open but I know I found the right Dr. Oh and before booking my consult with him I read all his reviews and not one negative one. Or at least none that bothered me. It wasn’t about his art work . it was over something dumb. That I find very interesting and helpful!!! & I also found him on this website!

My pre-op is sept 1st, not too far away. I’m guessing we will talk more about sizes, pay my dues, get my prescriptions and what not. I’m super excited and anxious! HECK I’m all sorts of emotions!! ????

I’m just scared of going to small or too big. I’ve read a lot about boob greed, but honestly I’m just thankful for having the chance to get some boobs. But seriously that dilemma bites you in the butt. So if any of you ladies have any suggestions let me know! Please and thank you!
Until then ??????

I am so happy with my results!!! I had lost 60lbs in two years, and my breast were a size A. It took me a long time to make the decision to go through with the procedure, but I am so happy that I did. Dr. Pousti is an amazing doctor and his staff is wonderful. They check on you everyday post surgery for two weeks. It was a wonderful experience and I couldn’t be happier with my results. Thank You Dr. Pousti !!
Dr. Pousti is a awesome doctor. He answered all my questions and was completely professional. He was there holding my hand before my procedure and when I woke up. He even call to check up on me over then weekend, after my surgery, when his office was closed. He is a great doctor!!!

I had my first breast augmentation about 18 years ago and was not happy with the results. I immediately had severe skin tenting and symmastia. The doctor tried fixing it by putting in some sutures but it didn’t work. I started looking for another doctor to fix it when I was able to save enough money. However, life and having kids kind of put a hault to my search. Well, as fate may be, one of my saline implants deflated so it was time that I did some searching. Thank goodness for the Internet, I am able to do my researches more thoroughly now. After a long time of researching, I knew Dr. Pousti was the one who could help me. As soon as I met him in person, I knew he was the one for me. He was one of the sweetest doctors I have ever met. He truly listened to me and was honest and upfront with what I can expect. So, I am 2 months post op still wearing my thong bra, but I really like the results so far. I went with silicone and under the muscle this time. Although I see some skin tenting still, it has improved drastically. I’m hoping it will continue to improve. I’m crossings fingers…. As for the size, shape, and position of my new breasts, I love them!!! I know that I will be able to wear low cut shirts and feel confident about myself. Dr. Pousti and his staff are wonderful people. I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Thank you Dr. Pousti!!!
Dr. Pousti is very sweet and caring. He really listened to my concerns and was upfront and honest with me.

I have been doing research for a while for a doctor in San Diego, Ca. I found some of the best reviews on Dr.Poustie and his staff which is why I wanted him for my Tummu Tuck. I called and spoke to Daisy and she booked my appointment immediately. My appointment went Great the staff was great. I am so excited to get my tummy tuck and see my end results.

Soooooooo I usually don’t do reviews but I couldn’t help myself and wanted to give the biggest shout out to Dr. Pousti and his staff for their overwhelming professionalism, before & after care, incredible vision, and most importantly their lovely upbeat hospitality. The day I met Dr. Pousti and Vanessa we made a connection, we hit it off instantly and I knew I was in the best hands. After consulting with my auntie on my decision, I made a second appointment so my auntie could meet Dr. Pousti. The appointment went great, lots of laughs, questioning, and Dr. Poustis amazing vision for me. I scheduled my surgery a month out, although nervous, I was so anxious and had full trust in Dr, pousti that my outcome was going to be dramatic, life-changing and absolutely stunning! After surgery there were some trials and tribulations but Dr. Pousti and his staff kept a close eye on me. Vanessa called, texted, and followed up daily. I am now 6 months out of surgery, feeling amazing and in love with my perfect breasts. I can’t thank Dr. Pousti, Vanessa, and the rest of his team for my incredible gift….it is truly life changing. Thank you so much. Keep up the wonderful work

I was an 18 year old fit girl on scholarship to play vb at a University….first time all on my own. I went slightly overboard on food and alcohol and ended up gained about 30 pounds my freshman year, first semester. The pro: glorious, full C cup breasts. The remainder of my college years consisted of attempting to lose the tire around my waist. Once I finally lost the weight, I was back to a small B cup with some pretty significant sagging due to loss of skin elasticity. My breasts looked fine in clothing, but once I was in my birthday suit I was unhappy with the way I looked….kind of a big deal for a 23 year old. Over the next few years, I researched doctors for breast augmentation and began saving money. I met a couple girlfriends who’d had their glorious boobs done by the same physician. I set up a consultation and fell in love! Dr. Pousti is amazing. My boyfriend had come with me to the appt and said, “If you’re going to do the surgery, please have him do it!” He made you believe that he was 100% confident he could give you exactly what you wanted…as long as your desires were realistic. 2 years later and I regret nothing. My breasts are truly EXACLTY what I had asked for and envisioned! I will be returning to Dr. Pousti in a few years for my lift after my future children (& gravity) cause my breasts to reach my waist! Anyone considering this surgery would do themselves a favor by looking into this surgeon! He’s truly one of a kind…(his office staff isn’t too shabby, either!)
Phenomenal. He holds your hand in surgery as you go under anesthesia… The office called every single day for a month following my surgery and then once a month for a year. I refer him to EVERYone!

Dr. Pousti and his staff are AMAZING! I am a Physician Assistant in the aesthetic field, and I went to multiple consults in order to find the right plastic surgeon for me. I originally had a B cup, saline implants and was looking to swap them out for a C cup, silicone implants. From the minute Dr. Pousti walked in the door during the consult, I knew I was in good hands! Not only is he a down to earth doctor who makes you feel comfortable and at ease, but he also a very skilled and knowledgable plastic surgeon who keeps up to date on the newest and latest advances in the medical field. I am approximately 2 weeks post-surgery and very happy with my results 🙂

So far I’ve done my consult with Dr. Pousti and then just had my preop appointment with him yesterday. Him and his staff are amazing! I knew after the first visit that he was the doc for me! I read his crazy amounts of great reviews and saw for myself that they are all true! I’ve been doing tons of research and have been stalking this website for weeks. I can’t wait for my surgery sept 11th!! Wishing it was tomorrow. I’m doing a breast lift mastopexy stage 3 with implants. My only concern as of right now is that there is no guarantee we can go as big as I want because of my old stretched skin. I’m hoping to be somewhere in the 400cc-500cc…so basically a D or DD.( which may seem big, but it is what I was while breastfeeding). Also I was a C-cup before babies so now I am smaller than I’ve ever been in my life! Can’t wait to get my confidence back with my hubby and feel sexy again.

From the moment I stepped into Dr. Pousti’s office I felt so welcome and put at ease. Everyone on his staff is so friendly, helpful and answered questions anytime I had them. Dr. Pousti is a brilliant plastic surgeon and a true gentlemen. He’s an awesome doctor that really cares about your happiness. He filled me in on all the pros and cons and has a great demeanor. He made my breasts just how I envisioned! I got silicone 800 cc and they fit my body perfectly! I’m 5’6, 126 lbs, 34 DDD and they really gave me the shape I’ve always wanted. Don’t worry about the numbers of cc’s, go for the look you want to achieve! I wanted an hourglass figure and now I have it thanks to Dr. Pousti. My husband says he loves Dr. Pousti everyday! Highly recommend!

And i defintley am going to book my procedure with him and am very excited!

Testimonial:
Outstanding Dr and staff especially Daisy and Vanessa. Everyone is highly dedicated to a postive experience!From the initial consult and through after care daily calls, check to ensure that I have no issues and was pain free. They are especially good to Military members and returning patients. I also heard from oter pateints that they had a possitive expeience. Excellent to outstanding Dr and his staff.

Testimonial:
Dr. Pousti & staff took excellent care of me when I had my tummy tuck, breast augmentation & liposuction procedures done back in 2008. After two pregnancies, breastfeeding, gaining 100lbs and then drastically losing weight, my body needed LOTS of help.

Thankfully, I found Dr. Pousti through a referral from good friend of mine who had her breast augmentation done with him & was extremely happy with her results. I had seen numerous plastic surgeons but for some reason it didn’t feel right (it’s kind of like the feeling you get when shopping for a wedding dress). So I thought I’d give this surgeon a try. However, I was hesitant at first because it was a T-H-R-E=E hour drive for me. But, after the first visit with Dr. Pousti I knew THIS was the one!

Vanessa was especially caring and attentive to my concerns. She was always pleasant to talk to & did her very best to accommodate me. Most importantly, she always made me feel welcomed? Love that girl!

I’m extremely pleased with my results. I went from an A to a full C, my tummy is flat (kangaroo pouch is gone!) and most importantly my confidence level & self-esteem is off the charts!

…7 years later I still feel and look great thanks to Dr. Pousti!

Thank you Dr. Pousti, Vanessa & staff for making this an extraordinary experience!
Dr. Pousti is honest and genuinely wants the best outcome for his patients. He was patient and answered all my questions thoroughly. Dr. Pousti made me feel at ease and in excellent hands despite a long procedure and recovery time. His charming personality is also a PLUS! 🙂

I am not one to write reviews but found the many reviews I read to be extremely helpful so I am paying it forward. I have always been dissatisfied with my breast size. My mom and sister both have large breasts so I thought it was just a waiting game but still at age 20 I had hardly a 34b. I considered breast augmentation but never even met with a plastic surgeon because I thought it was too expensive and I felt ashamed. By age 25 and 2 kids later, breastfeeding has left my breasts asymmetrical and deflated. I talked to my husband about it and he was supportive about my idea. I live in southern California with access to unlimited plastic surgeons, after much reasearch I scheduled a consultation with dr poutsi, though it was a 1.5 hour commute, it was well worth it. Him and his staff were amazing, I was very nervous and I felt instantly at ease when Daisy checked me in and went over everything. While I waited to see Dr poutsi I read his certifications (double board certified) and felt even better after meeting him. He is extremely experienced with 20+ years and performs hundreds (well over the average) of breast augmentation procedures a year. The next day I scheduled my surgery & pre op and put a 500$ deposit down. I am confident he will deliver my desired look, I liked the 450cc sizers, I am going with silicone. My pre op is in a couple days so I will know in more detail about what he will go with to achieve my desired look. I am so excited! Three more weeks until BA day!

Testimonial:
So far my expectations have been exceeded! The staff has been friendly and informative. They have done everything to make me feel comfortable and they have done that and more. I look forward to my surgery day and know I am in the best hands possible! I could not ask for a better group to assist me!
So far I have met with Dr Pousti 3x and Vanessa 2x. Vanessa performed my pre-op appt and it was amazing. I was nervous going into it, but she made me feel terrific. She listened to my needs, wants and fears. She never once made me feel inferior or that I couldn’t be completely open with her. I have actually contacted her a few times since my pre op with questions. She has been there for me even when she didn’t need to be. Incredible staff! And Dr Pousti is awesome. The most honest and sincere Dr I have ever met. He was blunt with me, even telling me what I was hoping not to hear. I trust him and his experience and know I will be very satisfied with my results! I look forward to my surgery day. This is my first ever surgery, so nervous a bit but I trust him and Heather to take very good care of me in that surgery room! Love you guys! Your entire office is terrific down to the employee who takes appts and payments! Thank you all for your help and sensitivity to my crazy questions! 🙂

I am currently only 3 weeks post-op, but I know already that this is the look I want. I didn’t know going in what I would be getting exactly (profile and cc’s), but I communicated well with Dr. Pousti and his staff and made a poster. I personally wasn’t too nervous about the procedure, but that’s just me. I was more concerned about what I would look like afterwards, but Dr. Pousti and his staff really listened to me and reassured me. The procedure went smoothly and I got calls from the staff (and Dr. Pousti!) before and every day after the surgery to make sure everything was going smoothly and to answer any questions I have. I totally trusted Dr. Pousti and am loving the results so far!
When it was time to get serious about getting a BA and finding a surgeon, I knew in my heart I would pick Dr. Pousti even before I met him. Even still, I went to 2 other surgeons just so that I can say I didn’t make a rash decision, and he is 2+ hours away from me. From the beginning to even now, the process has been amazing. His staff is so accommodating, Dr. Pousti is an experienced surgeon, who knows what he is doing, and will give you the results you want, in the safest and best technology available. He is sweet and knows what your desires are. He cares about his practice and patients. Highly recommended. As someone once told me who got her BA done several years ago, “He is the best of the best!”

I am a 25 year old who has lived with insecurity and a horrifying feeling about the way my breast looked. I always felt as though my breast were a “weird” shape, but I ignored my judgie thoughts and choose to believe that they were just the way breast were suppose to look. Not only did my breast shape look like snoopy the dogs snout but my nipples were oversized, my breast pointed outward, I had the largest gap in the cleavage area and my breast were a size AA. At the age of 17 I looked into breast augmentations, during this time I confirmed my worst fear. I had far from normal body parts I could only understand that my breast were deformed. I learned about Tuberous and constricted breast I felt worse knowing that I was not an average woman, in a way I felt ashamed and ultimately embarrassed. Over the course of 8 years I debated cosmetic surgery because I was afraid of my high standards, I was afraid of being disappointed, I was afraid of all the negative complications. It took all of 4 different consultations and a recommendation to Dr. Pousti before I decided to just trust that there was a possibility to live a more comfortable life.
Dr. Pousti is a charismatic, insightful and courteous surgeon. He was able to look past convincing me to follow through with the surgery but painted the bigger picture. He made sure to explain the pros and cons and everything in between during the consultation. I felt comfortable and well taken care of. Along with Dr. Pousti are his caring staff Daisy, Vanessa, Lauren and Helen, the anesthesiologist and OR nurse who all helped with the entire process by answering questions and providing reassurance of the procedure. It is early to tell my final results but overall I feel confident that I will love the results.

Testimonial:
in 2013, had a TT with Dr Pousti which was an unbelievable life changer for me. Being 5′ 4″ and having two large babies had certainly taken a toll on my body no amount of exercise or diet could fully repair. I had all but given up when a work friend has a TT from Dr Pousti and highly recommended him. My first consult convinced me I had found the right dr for me. There was no hype, or lofty promises which would have sent me scurrying, my B.S. Meter being so sensitive. Refreshingly, I experienced honesty, frankness and a professional atmosphere from his office. This was critical for me being a local clinical microbiologist. I have seen horrendous infections from procedures done in other counties in my work and didn’t want to personally experience this.

After 2 years I elected to get a scar revision from a mild dehiscence. Since I was going to be under general anesthesia I considered an outer thigh lift to get “more bang for the buck”. Researching this was very difficult because all the patients I found had undergone massive weight loss and needed much more extensive surgery than I. Dr Pousti listened to concerns. I didn’t want anything drastic so to minimize any complications but enough to have better contouring. In fact I just said ” I trust you to do what is best for me in my situation.” Having had surgery from him before made me comfortable saying this and considering I’m quite the skeptic, there is no better review I can give.

I am still quite swollen but am getting around well. I had some trouble with low grade fevers for the first week but they badgered me and my husband to keep up the deep breathing ( thanks Vanessa…hugs) I’ve passed that point now. I will include some photos later to help anyone going down a path similar to mine. It would be nice to have more reviews on this type of procedure to make an informed decision.

Thanks to all in Dr Poustis office and dr Pousti himself for a fabulous experience. If I ever want anything else done or if anyone ever asks me to recommend someone for a cosmetic procedure, the choice is clear.

Testimonial:
Amazing, amazing, amazing!!! Dr. Pousti is truly an artist.

I feel so lucky to have found this man and his practice. I live in Los Angeles where plastic surgery central is right down the street in Beverly Hills but try as I might, I could not find a doctor who’s reviews really convinced me that they were the right doctor for me. Generally they all had some good and some bad reviews per doctor.

This really started to scare me because I had hoped I could find a doctor that genuinely and sincerely cared about each of his patients and was fully invested in beautiful individualized results. I did not want to settle on a doctor that I didn’t have full confidence in. This forced me to keep expanding my search area in hopes of finding that doctor and FINALLY I found Dr. Pousti.

I read so many reviews on him on various sites and especially the detailed journeys of patients on realself and I could tell that this was how I wanted to be treated as a patient. So yes, each doctor’s visit is a 2.5+ hour drive each way but for amazing results it was without a doubt worth it. Luckily for me, my husband was able to drive with me every time so we started to enjoy the mini road trips and sometimes long weekends in the Gaslamp Quarter near the doctor’s office.

Dr. Pousti has a great bedside manner, he never rushes your time together. My husband loved him as well, the doctor even gave him his personal phone number in case we needed him post surgery. He truly goes above and beyond, he even personally called us on Father’s Day to make sure I was doing alright!

But as the saying goes, “behind every great man, is a great woman” and in Dr. Pousti’s case it is about 25-30 women!!! I can not say enough beautiful things about his team. The women in his office and the operating room really made this experience extra special and comforting. The ladies there are beyond super sweet and kind, definitely no rude girl bad attitudes whatsoever! Cindi was my main girl through the whole process and she had the best energy and attitude and I will never forget how helpful she and the rest of the ladies were. Which reminds me to send a thank you fruit basket or something the next time I go in. Hopefully if you too are researching and reading this, you can save yourself the stress and realize this is the right doctor for you too.

I came into see Dr Pousti for a consult a few months back for a breast augmentation. I am a mom and found out I do need a lift to get the results I want. Needless to say, I balled my eyes out! Vanessa was very sensitive to me and was incredibly sweet! She made me feel comfortable and supported. Dr Pousti informed me that he will not perform a surgery on me until I am emotionally ready for it. I was not okay with a lift, so I did leave and look more into it…

After talking to other drs I realized that he truly has my best interest at heart. He is an artist, not just a surgeon and he wants his patients to love his work. I went back for a second consult with my husband. I was terrified of the scars from a lift but they gave me so much information, photos, let me talk to an actual patient and he put me at ease.

And now I am getting my surgery on August 28! And I cannot be more excited. I went in for my pre op and Vanessa was awesome. She answered all my questions and then some. She even gave me her number to contact her outside of the office for help which I thought was going above and beyond. But hey, that’s what they do here! They go above and beyond for their patients. I could not ask for a better team to be at my side in the surgery room or for a better artist working on me! See you guys soon!!!

I was only on pain meds for 5 days… My results exceeded my expectations… I’m so happy I did it.. If you’re looking to have a breast augmentation Dr. Pousti is the Dr to see..
Super chill.. Tells you everything you want to know.. Amazing!

I could not even fit into a kids bra and wanted to have confidence and feel like a woman plus have my clothes fit nicely! I have a small frame so I wanted boobs that fit my body frame and I wanted them to look natural! I feel like he really listened to what I wanted but also gave his expertise (which made me go larger). I’m glad I trusted him and took his advice they turned out exactly how I had pictured them!

I got silicone implants and one is 350cc and the other is 375cc! I was a little lopsided ????
Dr. Pousti and his staff are all really friendly and welcoming. I felt like he really listened to what I wanted and also gave his expertise to get me to the wonderful outcome I have today!

My wife had implant exchange with Dr. Pousti. From a husband’s stand point, I was extremely pleased with Dr. Pousti and his staff. From the first consultation, I was included in all of the discussions. The staff made sure that I had all of my questions answered and treated me with nearly as much care as they did my wife. Heather was always amazing as was the rest of the staff. During surgery I was informed of the status of my wife. After surgery, Dr Pousti made it a point to personally let me know everything went well. On our follow up visits, we were always treated as though we were important. I have been very pleased with the professionalism from everyone at his office. The results are amazing. What a difference from the last version. Great choices by Dr. Pousti to get the look we were hoping for. Much more natural looking. Very happy.
Dr Pousti took all my fears away about my BA surgery. The entire staff is phenomenal, especially Heather and Vanessa. They made sure I got the exact look I wanted. The staff called me every day after my surgery to ask how I was doing and to find out if I needed anything. Heather was the nurse assisting in the surgery room and took the edge off with her warm smile and bubbly personality. Vanessa took her time removing my stitches and it was painless. She made sure to comfort me and distract me so I wouldn’t focus on the stitches being removed. The staff even gave me flowers after my surgery during my check-up visit post-op. They are the superheroes of cosmetic surgery!!

His nurse Heather is an absolutely amazing individual who is very informative, caring, kind, helpful, and a joy to be around! Dr.Pousti restored my appearance, self-esteem, and quality of life.

My second child was born with a heart defect that resulted in 3 open heart surgeries so far, because of that I had to use a pump so she was able to be feed through her feeding tube. Needless to say it was brutal to my breasts. They looked deflated and saggy skin. I talked with a friend who had used Dr. Pousti for her breast augmentation and I immediately called for a consultation. As soon as I walked into the office I was greeted with such a friendly staff! They made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Pousti and his nurse sat with me and went over size and shape in intricate detail. They surgery itself was quick and so far recovery has been good. I am one week post op and am loving the daily calls from his office checking in on how I am doing and there for any questions!
Dr. Pousti is so amazing! He makes you feel so special and comfortable. He is very professional, and I love how much detail he gives and goes over, making sure you get exactly what you want.

I’m 1 day post op and love my chest and I haven’t even seen them yet, but they are for sure better than what I started with. Dr Pousti was so great he even held and squeezed my hand as I was being put to sleep in the operating room. I cannot tell you how much that meant to me. Going for my first post op appointment tomorrow.
Dr Pousti really treated me like an individual and right up until the time of my surgery we were discussing the best options for me and what type of lift I should have. He’s a compassionate doctor and I feel like he cared about me as an individual despite having done over 10,000 breast procedures prior to mine! He is wonderful!

After years of always wanting to get my ears done, I finally decided to go for it. One of my good friends had just gotten a breast augmentation by Dr. Pousti and had high recommendations for me to go to him, but even still I researched doctors all over Southern California. As a person who has never been put under before, or had any type of surgery at all, I wanted to make sure I felt comfortable with my Dr. as I knew it would be a nerve wracking process. After some extensive searching and a lot of review reading, Dr. Pousti was talked highly about by not only my friend, but by many others, so I decided I would go in for a consultation. Everyone in the office was amazing. So friendly and welcoming, and really made you feel comfortable. I decided the surgery was definitely something that I wanted to do afterwards, and called and scheduled my surgery the next day. I had my pre op appointment yesterday and once again, I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about the entire office. They are all awesome. I sat down with Vanessa who went over the entire process with me. She even had hands on experience caring for a family member who underwent the same surgery by Dr. Pousti himself (how reassuring is that?), and offered personal tips from experience. My Surgery is about 3 weeks out, and I feel great about it. If anyone is considering any type of plastic surgery, I highly recommend scheduling a consultation. Dr. Pousti, Vanessa, and all of the other girls in the office are wonderful!

Just updating my one year after my surgery! Everything is perfect! It has gone so smooth. this is still the best decision of my life and would recommend this exact surgeon to anyone!

Since my surgery I’ve had 3 of my friends go get BAs and they also all love Dr Pousti and his staff!

I am 5 days post op today. I had muscle repair and liposuction with my tummy tuck, stage three breast lift, and implants with Dr. Pousti in San Diego, CA. I lift weights and love to workout, I work part time and I love to be out and about with my family. I am very happy with my choice so far and I cannot wait to see my final results and wear a bikini for the first time in years!!
Dr. Pousti has been wonderful throughout this whole process. I researched these procedures quite heavily and he has been ready and willing to answer each and every question or concern I have had. He visited me at home and has constantly made me feel comfortable. I have had no complications so far and I am feeling very blessed to be under his care. He is a great surgeon and a humble surgeon and I hope he will always stay that way.

Testimonial:
In June 2015 I had a “mommy makeover”. My surgery included tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift and breast augmentation (implants). After giving birth to three beautiful daughters, my body was stretched out and saggy. Exercise alone would not make things better. The surgery lasted seven hours. I am currently six weeks post-surgery and my incisions are almost healed. I so happy with the results. I have my natural shape and flat stomach back and my breasts are full and lifted.
Dr. Pousti is the most caring doctor I have ever met. He and his staff, especially Vanessa and Daisy, are so personal and professional. He is always generous with his time and explains everything. He visited me at my hotel after surgery and even helped my husband to make me comfortable in bed. He also called our house to check on me and sent me home with flowers after my follow up visits. My husband and I felt very comfortable having Dr. Pousti perform the surgery not only because of his character but because is he is double board certified as a plastic surgeon and general surgeon. We absolutely made the best choice and driving from Riverside to San Diego for the surgery and every appointment has been worth the extra time.

I can’t believe tomorrow is the big day!! I have been waiting for 15+ years. I have always had a extra small bust (unless I was pregnant or nursing) and noticed that my chest wall really sinks in compared to most people. I remember the first time I told my mom I wanted a BA ( I think I was 16 maybe 17) and she told me to wait until I was older and had all my children. Well a husband and 4 kids later here I am.

During my consultation I tried on 350cc sizers and thought those looked really nice. I was set on that size BUT then (here comes the boob greed) I started shopping and looking at the pic my husband had taken with the sizers and found myself wanting more. So during my pre-op I tried 400cc and love loved them.

Here is what I know….I can have boob greed all I want but that doesn’t mean it is going to have the keep them guessing look I. No matter what size I end up with it will be better than what I have always had and they will be much similar in size. I am so excited and can not wait until I can have a itty bitty titty committee bra burning party!!!
I am so lucky to have been referred to Dr. Pousti. He is amazing and compassionate. During my consultation I broke down crying due to the self esteem issues I have with my breasts and it was very nerve wracking for me to go through the consultation. My husband was their to hold my hand and so was Dr. Pousti and his staff. All my worries and concerns were listened to and addressed. My pre op was so smooth and I was much more confident knowing the staff was there to catch me if I had an emotional fall again.

Looking for the best cosmetic surgeon in San Diego? Look no further. Pousti and staff are absolutely amazing. My husband and I looked all over at different surgeons and Dr Pousti was it for us. Makes you feel 100% comfortable will let you talk to any of his staff any patients (with consent) with any questions you have.

One month out and recovery moving forward nicely. I had Alograft with my procedure because of severe scar tissue from myv original surgery with another doctor. I was in severe pain and was embarrassed by the obvious differences.
Already there is a huge improvement regarding softness!
The ladies are wonderfully helpful regardless of the request. I saw Vanessa this past Friday who always gives the most helpful suggestions. I’m so happy to have the ongoing support of Dr. Tom and his excellent staff!¡
Dr Tom made me feel confident immediately! I loved being so welcomed upon walking into the office at the front desk. His manor is comforting, confident, and makes me feel beautiful each visit. He is FABULOUS!!

Testimonial:
Dr. Pousti did an amazing job on my constricted breast augmentation. I couldn’t be happier with the result. He is always very kind and informative and his staff is just wonderful. I found that there was a lot of information made available for me such as videos and pamphlets to help answer all of my questions, as well as prepare me for what to expect. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pousti if you have constricted, under developed, or tuberous breasts.

Testimonial:
Having a larger bust size without all the padding is something I have always wanted but never acted on…I guess because as a mom, we always put everyone else’s needs before our own. I’ve been happily married for over 20 yrs to a man who thought my body was already perfect which was probably another reason why I kept putting it off. Well age 49 rolled around and I thought to myself “what am I waiting for…this is what I really want?” I never do anything for myself so this was a huge step for me to say the least. I decided to do some research online and found it very helpful to read reviews and see actual pictures of before and after. After many hours of reading reviews, I narrowed it down to 3 Dr.’s in San Diego and made apts to visit each. The first one I actually considered going with since he seemed very nice and competent but I knew I the smart thing would be to meet with three and weigh them all together. The second Dr. I met with was Dr. Pousti and by the end of my visit something in my gut told me this was the Dr. I could trust to take care of me….and he has certainly gone above and beyond his word. I never actualy met with the third Dr. since I knew Dr. Pousti was the one. My first surgery was April 2014 and my goal was to be taken from a C cup to a full DD. The CC’s selected were 560 in saline and being I was 5′ 3″ weighing 115lbs at the time that should have been more that adequate to obtain my goal. My surgery went great and I couldn’t have been happier with the shape and size…they were perfect! A couple months passed and after the swelling went down and they began to drop into their pockets my anatomy somehow absorbed them. Anyone looking at them would have said they were a perfect pair, however I had invisioned exactly that but just a little larger. I really hated to say anything to my husband or Dr. Pousti because I didn’t want to disappoint anyone….my hasband had supported me through the process and Dr. Pousti created two of the most perfect D breast anyone could ask for. I actually ended up waiting a year before I told my husband and he again supported me and told me to contact Dr. Pousti and ask there was a way to add more saline. I sent an e-mail and with open arms was ask to return so they could see what was necessary to get the results I wanted. After talking with Dr. Pousti he recommended a much higher cc#’s but assured me that it’s only a # and that the same CC’s on one person could look completely different on someone else even starting at the same size….I myself found was a perfect example of this. Dr Pousti explained the necessary CC’s to get the size and fullness I wanted and recommended an internal bra to maintain that look even without wearting a bra and to prevent sagging down the line. Dr. Pousti told me before the surgery the cc#’s would be somewhere between 900 and 1000CC’s but the number did not faze me because I knew he would add whatever was necessary to get me to my goal. 1000 CC’s it ended up being and I’m telling they are exactly the full DD I envisioned! I’m hoping to be able to add pictures soon for comparison, because that # might sound huge to most trying to decide for themselves but remember not to focus on the #. I am three weeks post op and had them unrapped today and they are the most perfect set!!! I’m so extreamly happy I did this for myself. Dr. Pousti is an amazing Dr that really cares about every detail and takes his work to heart. When I started this process I was first very reluctant to put my story or pictures out there because I’m a very private person but then after time I realized it was the stories I read that helped me narrow down my search to to Dr Pousti. Thank you Dr. Pousti for everything you did for me….I’m so glad I found you…your the greatest!! Dr Pousti is the most professional and friendly Doctor I have ever met! He walked me through every step of the procedure and even met with me prior to the surgery to make sure every last detail was covered to get the results I wanted. Choosing Dr. Pousti for my breast agmentation proceedure and revision proceedure was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.!

After a few years of research and contemplation I decided to go ahead and get labia reduction surgery. This was something I had always wanted to do but didn’t know if I had the nerve to go through with it and I’m incredibly happy I did. I never thought I’d look the way I do now and I’m only two weeks post op. If any woman is thinking about this procedure I can only say, DO IT, it is 100% worth it.
This is my second procedure by Dr. Pousti and I would never go anywhere else. I have complete trust in him as a doctor as he is an exceptional artist in his craft. I explained what look I wanted and it is exactly what he gave me. If you are currently searching for a doctor, look no further, Dr. Pousti is the real deal.

I had been dealing with gynecomastia for about 6 years, and always wanted to get it removed. Though my case was mild, it was still bothersome to me. So finally at 22 I decided to pursue it. Of course you will have your doubts, but if you really want to improve the quality of your life its important to do what will make you happy. However, you want to be patient and make sure you find the right doctor. I found Dr. Pousti online and was impressed with the surgeries he had done on other men. I think that is the most important thing, is seeing someones work. On his website he has a number of photos, and you can see he has the experience it takes.
Dr. Pousti and his staff were amazing from start to finish. It was clear from the start how seasoned they are in dealing with patience, as well as this particular surgery. They go to great measures to make sure you are comfortable and really exceed any expectation you could have. Right away, I knew I had made the right decision in choosing Dr. Pousti. He is very personable, kind, and you can see the passion he has for helping people achieve their goals. Before anything, he is a genuine person and kind soul. And of course, he is extremely confident in his ability. He reinforces that the he will produce the result you are looking for and triple checks to make sure he is clear about what YOU want. For my particular surgery he truly understands the science behind it, and his breadth of experience has served him well in knowing how to not only complete the surgery but get as close to perfection as possible. For my surgery he masked the incision extremely well and 1 week out it is quite difficult to tell that I had surgery. He explained to me the importance of not removing too much, as well as the importance of symmetry. It was clear that Dr. Pousti was very confident in delivering and I never once doubted his ability. On surgery day he makes sure you both are clear on what you want, and he outlines his game plan through markups. The biggest thing I appreciated was that he makes sure you are in a good place mentally before you are given anesthesia. He really makes an effort to go outside of his role and be a friend as he understands how important and difficult of a process surgery can be. All in all, Dr. Pousti exceeded my expectation and I will never forget what he did for me, and the friend he was to me during the entire process. I worked closely with Vanessa and Daisy as well and both were very helpful and supportive through out the entire process before and after the surgery. Any questions or concerns that I had I knew they were a phone call away. Daisy called me every day post-op up until my 1st appointment and even after. She was my personal alarm clock. They were the 1st people I heard from every single day. Their level of professionalism was 2nd to none. The entire staff is a great group. They are very warm embracive people which is what you want throughout this type of process. I HIGHLY recommend their services to anyone thinking about gynecomastia surgery, it was one of the best decisions of my life no question.

So I’m 27 years old I breast-fed one child I am 5’5″ and 138 pounds I’m currently a B cup and I would like to go to a large C . My surgery is in four days and I am extremely nervous about anesthesia and the surgery itself . I’m still really confused about the size I’m going to go . My doctor suggest 375 cc but everybody keeps telling me I’m going to have huge boobs if I do that people think I’ll be a DD ! I know it’s different on everyone but I’m not that big of a person . So I’m concerned and wondering if I should tell the doctor I want to be smaller maybe 350 cc . I’m getting under the nipple incision and under the muscle also I’m doing silicone . So far I have gone my prescriptions filled and gone my house and things ready I’m just thinking if there’s anything else I can possibly do to prepare myself I’m so excited but I’m still pretty nervous about a few things! Is anybody else a friend of anesthesia and does anyone have an input on this size the doctor recommends for my body type ?
So far my doctor has team amazing he’s been really kind and so has his staff .

My surgery is scheduled for the end of this week! While it’s definitely exciting, I can’t help but feel nervous as well – I just can’t wait for this to be over with and see the results.

I’m a full-time university student and my whole life I’ve experienced the same things many of those with larger labia have experienced – from sexual and social insecurities to discomfort and pain doing activities that others without my “problem” can enjoy without a second thought. I simply want to wear what I want and enjoy life’s experiences without worrying about my lady bits independently deciding to make a public appearance.

My consultation went well. A member of Dr. Pousti’s staff sat down with me and covered pretty much everything I needed to know about the procedure in order to make a decision. Dr. Pousti came in afterwards and did a quick exam – it literally took a few seconds. Throughout the process, I felt as comfortable as one could feel in that situation; all my questions and concerns were tended to as thoroughly as I could have hoped. I honestly did not have to think too much before committing to having the surgery. I have dreamt about and seriously thought about getting this done for a long time. Combining the research I did with the positive experience I had at his office and Dr. Pousti’s obvious talent for what he does, I had no reservations about making an appointment and finalizing everything asap.

I went in for pre-op today and the fact that this is happening is starting to sink in. Dr. Pousti did a more thorough examination and I met with the person who will be assisting in the operating room. We are going with the trim method and now I have to consider how far up into the clitoral hood area I would want to go. If we do go further up, it will create an overall more balanced look. My kitty isn’t going in front of cameras or anything but I still want it to look the best it can so I think we’ll go with that if my research in the interim doesn’t prove it to be much of a risk. In the end, I got my prescriptions for pain meds, meds to help with nausea from the meds, and yeast infection medication as a preventative. I was also advised to get an over the counter stool softener since constipation from the pain meds would not be pretty with what I’d have going on down there post-op. Great! Lol. Other than that, I ordered Hibiclens, a skin cleanser/antiseptic, as I was also told to, for cleansing the area, along with some gel ice packs. I think I’m all set for now.

I’ll be sure to update this and post pictures when I do so 🙂

I’m 36 yrs old and had small (Cup A) Tubular Breasts and I wanted to correct for a more natural, fuller look. I found Dr Pousti through online reviews and I would absolutely recommend him and his staff.

I came to Dr Pousti with a basic list of wants – I wanted to address my constrictive breasts issue and a achieve a more rounded shape. And although I was looking to increase the breast size, I did not want to over do it. Living in CA, you find too often surgeons pushing their own aesthetics on their patients so that was definitely a concern I had walking into any doctor’s office but Dr Pousti was not like at all – he listened, answered my questions, gave his recommendations, but in the end was respectful of my decisions. I felt like there was always an open dialogue with the surgical approach. For example, he recommended a sub-muscular placement and silicon implants for tubular breasts since the implant would need to sit partially outside the pocket to create a rounded shape. Therefore, the implant would be felt through the skin so Silicon would provide a more natural feel. However, I have personal reservations about silicon and I opted on Saline instead. Dr. Pousti never pushed his own agenda and made me comfortable with my decision.

His staff was excellent, courteous, kind, helpful and reassuring. They were very kind pre and post-op. He has really surrounded himself with wonderful people. In all my appointments I felt he devoted so much time to answering my questions and being genuine.

Its been 6 months post-op and I absolutely love the results! I have no regrets – not even the saline! 🙂

Thank you again Dr. Pousti!

I had my surgery this past Tuesday. Everything went great the day of surgery. The pain commenced soon after I woke up from the anesthesia. Day 1 was the worst pain day, but everyday has gotten a little better. My only fear at this point is that I did not go big enough. I have an appointment tomorrow, so maybe I’ll get a sneak peek at them. I tried on sizers 450cc during my office visits, but during the procedure he ended up 360 cc on the right and 385 cc on the left.
Dr. Pousti was great in calming me down before the procedure began. His office staff has been very attentive on checking in on me for the past 2 days.

I’m 35 and have always wanted to enhance my breast size, but was always nervous about getting this type of surgery done. I finally decided to explore my options. I narrowed my search down to three local plastic surgeons. After my first consultation with Dr Pousti, I knew he was the perfect fit for me. He is very knowledgeable, professional, and caring. Most important to me though was seeing the before and after photos of his work. They looked very natural which is what I was most concerned with. I went to a couple more pre-op appointments where we discussed all my concerns, expectations, and I brought photos of results I was hoping for. The surgery and recovery have been a lot easier and much less painful than I thought. I felt very supported through this process. Dr. Pousti, Heather, Daisy, and pretty much all staff have been amazing, very sweet, and caring. I got daily calls post surgery to make sure I was ok. Two weeks after surgery, I LOVE my results. I know that I am still pretty swollen still, but I can only imagine how great they are going to look once fully recovered. I highly recommend Dr Pousti to anyone considering breast augmentation ?

Amazing. He really cares about his patients. He listens and makes sure he understands your goals and concerns, then makes professional suggestions. He is very professional and just an amazing person all the way around.

My name is Stephenie. First of all, I would like to thank Dr Pousti for the incredibly positive results which his knowledgeable surgical skills and superior clinical aftercare have provided me. When I first met him at his clinic, I had some very real concerns about my breasts and their appearance which were summarily degrading my self esteem and confidence. Dr Pousti thoroughly expressed his understanding of my concerns and in exquisite detail covered the procedure he proposed for me which could provide me with a whole new outlook regarding their revised size and the proportionate balance that it would provide me in appearance. With the full understanding of the procedure he proposed, I scheduled my procedure. After my surgery, I was remarkably excited about the new size of my breasts and was just as remarkably impressed with the amazing aftercare I received both at his clinic and the daily phone calls received from him and his amazing staff, checking up on me during my recovery period. Needless to say, Dr Pousti has remarkably restored my overall confidence in myself and in the incredible size and appearance of my new breasts. He has indeed captured the very essence of femininity needed in his extraordinary skills and concerns for his patients. I would also like to warmly express my thanks to his incredible clinical staff and team for their sustained personal care and attention extended to me throughout the past year since my surgery, which continues to this day. Whether you are still on the cusp of considering having a procedure performed or are in need of self encouragement from others who have experienced his procedures and aftercare, I would highly recommend any of the many beautification procedures offered by Dr Pousti, and his caring clinical staff. Infinite Hugs…

TODAY is my surgery! I can’t believe it’s here… So far so GREAT. Dr Pousti has made this decision so easy for my husband and I. I was very nervous to go through with this surgery. Is it worth it? After having two kids the aftermath on my stomach was depressing. I’m a tiny 120 pound woman and two 8 lb babies did the deed on me. When we reviewed Dr Poustis profile we both liked what we saw. I think as anyone else would be, your fear is the scar it leaves. Dr Pousti immediately addresses this and discusses many options that will produce optimal results and what’s realistic for YOU. From our first consultation to today, we are as confident as can be going into the surgery. I received my markings last night and have been eager since. Let’s do this!
Dr Pousti is amazing. From the second you meet him and his staff, you’re hooked! I looked around all over San Diego and my husband and I knew THIS was the surgeon for us. He’s very honest, and will not let you do something he doesn’t feel comfortable with or that it’s not in your best interest. A key factor in finding a surgeon is someone you can trust and have complete confidence that you’re in good hands. Dr Pousti is just that!

Testimonial:
5 star results and service! Deciding to get breast augmentation surgery is a big decision, and I wanted a professional. From calling to book my consultation to all of my post op appointments I’ve received the best care from Dr. Pousti and his staff. I couldn’t have chosen a better plastic surgeon for my Breast Augmentation!

The consultation process was fun and informative. The whole appointment isn’t with Dr. Pousti himself but I wasn’t disappointed by how well informed and helpful Daisy was! He made suggestions based on images I brought in and I made a board showcasing my likes/dislikes that I brought to my pre-op appointment. Dr. Pousti promised to get me as close to my dream within safety (Let’s just say I didn’t want to regret not going bigger). I love that safety is always his number one concern.

My surgery was performed on May 29th 2015. The scheduling for time had changed some since originally booking which was stressful at first since we had a babysitter who had a time schedule that day. Helen was very sweet and reworked the schedule to work with mine. (Thank you so much!) I know that things change and don’t always go as predicted so I wasn’t upset for any following changes. My surgery was delayed a few hours, but I was completely calm and excited while waiting. The surgery center is used by several surgeons and sometimes schedules get thrown off. Not all surgeries go as predicted. Life doesn’t go as predicted . Dr. Pousti came in to talk with me and my husband prior to surgery, apologized for the delay and thanked me for my patience, discussed any other concerns or last minute questions, discussed sizes and safety and made his markings. He excused himself to prepare for my surgery and once I was back in the room I started to get nervous. Dr. Pousti kindly held my hand as I was put under anesthesia. ‘
Upon waking up, my husband was brought back almost immediately. They made sure I was awake enough before sending me off.

I’m just over a month out from surgery and I have to thank Dr. Pousti and his staff for answering all questions and concerns I’ve had while healing. I will admit I cried the first time I saw my breasts. I didn’t sneak peeks at all. They were absolutely what I was hoping for. They are still perfect and I couldn’t be happier! I look forward to all appointments and am so happy I did my research on board certified plastic surgeons before deciding to see Dr. Pousti! I get asked a lot who my surgeon was and always give his information out!

I had a breast reduction done by Dr. Pousti a few years ago. I decided that i needed to get a tummy tuck done after having my kids. I decided to go back to Dr. Pousti because he is very sweet and he gets the job done. My results are amazing and I do not trust the hands of no other surgeon except Dr. Pousti whom is a double board certified surgeon . He specialize in many procedures including reconstructive surgery. I received a military discount and receive an appointment to get the procedure done a month out. My surgery date was April 15 2015 and now it June 29 2015. The day of surgery I had a wonderful staff that was by my side every step of the way & made me fell safe and happy. Everyone was very professional and polite. I had Dr. Hinkelman that was in charge of my anesthesia, she was a cool lady and took great care of me. In the OR there was Lidia,Heather,Natalee and Dani. Heather keep me laughing and I heard shes a great dancer lol. Heather is very sweet and made me feel very comfortable. There was also Michael whom was there for me during my after care. He was willing to answer any questions that I had and was very helpful. A week out I had a home visit from Dr. Pousti whom was dressed very well and brought a beautiful plant to make me feel better. I had my drains removed two weeks out. The first 3 days was the hardest for me, you need a great support team that can help you around the house and a walker is a must. Your going to need it! While going to my office visit’s Dr. Pousti took great care of me and everyday out from the surgery , I received a phone call every day to check on me. I also had the best nurse name Daisy whom has been there for me since day 1. She’s amazing, she told me I could call her anytime of the day even on weekends. Anytime I had any questions or concerns, she was willing to help me and never once got frustrated with me. Daisy is the best ever and I’m so glad she was my nurse. Not to mention she is very beautiful and loving and caring. Thank you so much Daisy!!!! I have to say its been a long road to recovering for me but due to my results that I have complements of Dr. Pousti it was well worth it. Dr. Pousti has an amazing staff in the OR and at his office. There is a lady name Helen and she works at the front desk and she is a wonderful lady as well. If I needed any paperwork for my job, she was there to make sure I received anything I needed. I am still very swollen and cant wait for all of the swelling to go down, even tho i look great compared to my before look. Getting this procedure done has made me feel more confident and sexy than before. Thank you Dr. Pousti for taking great care of me and making me look amazing!!!!! If your looking for a surgeon, look no further and stop right here! This is where you want to be, and that’s right here with Dr. Pousti and his staff. 5 star surgeon and staff. I was truly blessed to be around a loving and caring doctor and staff throughout my journey. I loved the whole team, however my favorites two people was Dr. Pousti and Daisy !!!!!! Yayyyy you two are the best ever and I couldn’t have done this without the both of you, thank you so much 🙂 I feel great and look fabulous, when I get dressed now I don’t have to worry about anyone asking me “How many months pregnant are you”. You can take a look at my photos and see my before and after pic’s & a picture of the plant I received complements of the Doctor. Remember I’m only 2 1/2 months out and I still have a lot of swelling, however I still look and feel great. THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. POUSTI ,DAISY AND HELEN you all are the best ever ;0
Dr. Pousti is a handsome,sweet, loving and caring surgeon. He takes his time with you and listen to all your needs. Soft spoken and gets the job done. He is the #1 surgeon by far! His office is beautiful as well is his staff. You will not go wrong when choosing Dr. Pousti as your surgeon. Five star surgeon hands down.

I cannot say enough good about my experience with Dr.Pousti and his staff. I have always been in the IBTC (itty-bitty-titty-committee) and for 8 years i wanted to resign from it! Financially, it seemed crazy to pay $6000 or more for a pair of boobs, so that ended up stopping me from doing the augmentation for 8 years. This post will be full of TMI and embarassing facts but to really let you know how inconfident of my body i was, my husband did not see my pre-augmentation boobs until WELL AFTER we were married and pregnant because they finally grew a little (i dont know if i should pity him or applause him!). Looking back one week after surgery, i regret the time i lost these years where i could have been more confident in myself, and i wish i did them sooner. The money was worth it already. I am so pleased with my body now. I had a baby 9 months ago and any other mother knows how much your body changes and how it negatively affects your confidence and (sorry to be blunt but,) sex life with the hubs! Even though i was flatter than a pancake, my husband was always telling me “your body is perfect! Dont change a thing !”. My advice ladies?… Your husband will (AND SHOULD) always tell you “that meatloaf was better than my moms” even when it was burnt to ashes. Dont listen to them lol. Yes, im happy my husband found perfection in my no-boobed chest, but i can see the distinct change in his affection now that i look more like a woman lol.
All jokes aside, Dr.Pousti and his staff had excellent customer service that went above and beyond any business ive ever delt with. I work in the medical field and to personally recieve a call from your doctor to check up on you pre and post op is a very rare and appreciated thing. Every day after surgery i recieved a call from either Dr. Pousti himself or his staff to see how i was doing or answer any questions. 4 days after surgery i had a post op visit and i recieved beautiful roses from Pousti and his staff which really made me smile. The surgery was a breeze. The only downfall was the two hour wait before the appointment, but its understandable.
The only flaw with my experience that i would like to share is the parking situation. They only accept cash and the office never has validation stickers to validate your pass. I dont mind paying 3$ to park, but i dont always come with cash. For my Post-surgery check up, the parking attendent made me get back out of the car and walk over to get cash from the coffee shop (not a tremendous thing to ask but sucks when youre in pain).
Overall, 10/10; Would do it again if my boobies werent already perfect!
🙂 THANK YOU Pousti and staff.
amazingly professional and talented

My motivation was to feel and look like I did before pregnancy. I am also a running so back problem was an issue too. My first consult was amazing. Vanessa was my tech and she gave me all the information right away. One of my favorite parts of my journey was being able to speak with Dr. Pousti’s patients. They were helpful and the work was amazing. The healing progress was the most impressive to me.
Dr. Pousti was my surgeon. He is truly the best. Vanessa was my tech in his office. And I remeber Erika was one of my nurses. Well everyone was so helpful and polite. Since I checked in the costumer service was perfect. Even the nurses walking around would ask me if I needed anything. From a blanket to water. My overall experience has been great. Tomorrow I have my first follow up. And nurses and Vanessa have been calling me and texting me making sure Im doing ok. The support is beyond words can describe.

At first I was very nervous about a surgery that’s this big, I’ve never had any cosmetic surgeries before and wasn’t sure what’s the outcome, I’ve looked up so many cosmetic surgeons and especially for Breast Augmentation. Dr. Pousti came across my search and I was very impressed with his experience with his work and patients after result and their reviews about his work. I made my consultation, after the first visit with him, I was much more confident about my surgery, he made me understand the different views, the pros and cons of the surgery. I paid my fee to hold a surgery date for me that very first visit I had with him.
Before the surgery I was nervous, during the surgery day it went really well, I didn’t feel much pain at all during my whole post op, I took my medication on time and followed the doctor’s instruction for aftercare. After the Surgery, his staff was calling me every single day for the first three weeks to check up on me and my after care. I had my first postop appointment a week after my surgery and second one two weeks after and third and fourth. until today, after my two months post op, he is still seeing me to see how I’m doing and how are my breast settled. I want to thank all of his staff, especially Vanessa for answering most of my questions and Dr. Pousti who did a fantastic “art work” on my breast and now they’re looking better than ever! and I’m only two months out, I can’t wait to see how my breast will look six month from now

I have been blessed enjoying being active my whole life & also blessed w/ good genes to help keep me thin. Breast size used to be no issue for me up until about 3 years ago… Maybe because I’m getting older, or maybe I’ve lost more body fat who knows? Over the last three years I’ve been bothered by not filling out my clothes and feeling sexy like a woman instead of like a fit young girl with a boyish figure. After taking the time to think if it was what I really wanted I decided I need to just do it! And luckily I have a supportive husband who said just do it! I didn’t want really large breasts- just as natural looking as possible, mostly proportionate to my body frame (slightly a little bit was ok with me) 🙂 and Dr. Pousti came highly recommended from three different people. One of my coworkers and then randomly two girls that I asked who they saw because I loved their results! Even though one of them had much larger breasts than I desired- they still looked amazing and as natural as they could being big boobies 🙂 here is my journey of pictures….. I’m 4 days post op and have zero complaints!!!!! Follow the doctor’s orders, eat healthy, rest, take your pain meds ALWAYS WITH FOOD, and recovery is a breeze! First day is the most sore— like working out really hard and having a sore muscle/rib cage, but suck it up buttercup it’s not that bad AT ALL!!!!!!
Everyone involved with Dr. Pousti’s practice is so kind, genuine, knowledgeable, and all the ladies are so pretty!!!!! Thank you for making me even more excited about doing this procedure and encouraging me to really try to explain through pictures and descriptions about what I wanted… More importantly thank you Dr. Pousti for listening! Best quality a man can have! xxoo

I have always been large-chested but very slender (34C/D). Exercise, aging, the birth of 4 babies, and breastfeeding have all taken their toll on my breasts. My issues were sagging, deflation, and loss of volume as well as stretched areolas. After the birth of my fourth child in 2013, I became increasingly self conscious of this. After much research, I made the decision that breast augmentation with a donut mastopexy was the right choice for me. I am thrilled with my result. I got 415cc silicone implants. My breasts are full but feel very natural. I have more confidence and love the way that my clothing is fitting me. Most importantly, I still feel like myself, only better.
I just wanted to add that I am 5’6″, 116 pounds and got 415. Cc silicone high profile implants.
I could not be more thrilled with my choice in a doctor. Dr. Pousti was so patient, kind, and caring. He is a master of the trade. He went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. His office staff is very professional. They give each and every one of their patients first class treatment! I am so grateful and appreciative of them every step of my journey.

Just had my breast augmentation surgery on Tues (June 23) and I am feeling great! Every single person that helped arrange this procedure has been wonderful! You can tell they all love working for Dr. Pousti and after meeting him I can see why. He is so kind hearted and genuine. He has your best interest in mind and wants to make sure he has the clearest picture in his head of what your wants and desires are so try your very best to show him pictures and explain in detail what you want! He is there for YOU! I heard his name for the first time from a co worker of mine and I looooooved her results. She saw Dr. Pousti 10 years ago and said he was amazing and her breasts looked amazing! She gave me his card and I saved it for about 3 years until I was ready to really consider having this elective surgery done. I am a dental hygienist and one of our most favorite patients came in to the office one day and announced to myself and two other girls that she had had her breasts done and she was soooo happy! I loved her results and asked who she saw and she said Dr. Pousti…. Hmmmm… This guy must know his boobies 🙂 Then my husband and I were at the OTL tournament with a bunch of other guys- I think I was the only girl. They wanted to get girls to flash them (stupid boys) and there was this one sweet girl that started talking to me and asked her if she had her boobs done and she said yes. I said they look amazing- who did them? She says Dr. Pousti!!! Coincidence….?! I would highly highly recommend him to anyone considering having this procedure done and please don’t be scared!!!!! If you’ve ever worked out and gotten pretty sore- that’s what the day of and day after surgery feel like, but no worse than that! Pressure and tightness! And it’s SO worth it! Dr. Pousti and his staff are truly there for you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking care of me and listening to what I wanted along with offering your highly expert opinion! I trusted you whole heartedly not only because of the other three girls who had great results, but also because I can tell you sincerely love what you do and want to take care of your patients. XXOO TO ALL POUSTI STAFF!

Dr. Pousti and his staff are amazing. He informed me of the risks associated with the surgery and answered my questions. Cindi walked me through the initial consultation and answered my questions. Daisy checked in with me everyday after my surgery. The staff cared immensely about my recovery. My surgery was on Wednesday. My chest looked like city plans had been drawn on it to give Dr. Pousti a reference to place the implants. He did a phenomenal job, therefore, scrubbing off the city plans was easily forgiven. I was off the pain meds on Friday, 48 hours later. I hate being on medication and the meds made me feel slow as well as made me constipated (sorry, TMI, but it was awful). Pick up fiber/iron pills, Colase, milk of magnesia, or something of the sort to help.
I left the surgery center with my sexy grandma support bra that I wear day and night for the next few weeks. I washed it on day 4 and the 40 mins I had the compression bra off, I put on a bikini top. My breasts felt like bowling balls hanging from my chest with no support.
It is frustrating to be limited to lift only 5 lbs the first couple weeks. My laptop is over 5 lbs and my chest muscles contracted often after I made the mistake of lifting it. Definitely, take it easy for 2 weeks after the surgery; no lifting. The first few nights, I slept sitting up. On the first night, I stood on my own and was thankful a friend stayed with me. I didn’t know my limitations and having a friend help me out the first night after surgery was wonderful.
My chest is tight. I take deep breaths and put my shoulders back to help alleviate my back, which is tight from hunching forward & sleeping ackwardly.
I recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone contemplating breast augmentation. He asked me to bring in pictures of the look I wanted to achieve. His office has a computer aided design machine that takes pictures of you and can be modified to give you an idea of how your breasts will look.
I am extremely happy with the results and my surgery was 8 short days ago. I’m active, previously I competed in bodybuilding and I had a very modest to flat chest. Now, my chest is propotional to my body.
Dr. Pousti is an amazing doctor and his staff is extremely caring, knowledgable, and kind.

Testimonial:
I am 39 years old, 5’3″ and about 116 lbs. I am extremely petite, only about 29″ around below my breasts, and wear a 32A. I have been dissatisfied with my lack of chest development since I was in high school, and have always been a little self-conscious about it. Everywhere else I have been able to sculpt curves with weight training– I’m pretty proud of my muscular development and especially my booty, but nothing I can do will ever increase my breast size except surgery. When I was about 24 I had a consultation with a plastic surgeon in Eugene, OR for breast implants. My biggest concern has always been the effect that cutting through the muscle to put the implants underneath (I have far too little breast tissue to go over the muscle) would have on my ability to continue weight training. I am not huge muscularly, by any means, but it’s something that makes me feel strong and powerful, and it’s important to me. The doctor– I honestly can’t remember his name at this point– basically laughed at me, and said condescendingly that it sure didn’t look like I was a weight lifter. I was so stunned by his lack of professionalism, especially considering that I went to him because I already have certain insecurities about my body, and he only succeeded in making me feel worse. I put the thought of surgery out of my mind, and did not decide to pursue it again until a little over a year ago. I eventually convinced myself that I should wait until after I had kids, because I didn’t want anything to interfere with breastfeeding. But here I am, staring down 40, and I still haven’t gotten married or had any kids. I decided it was time to stop waiting for things that might never happen, and at least finally do something that I’ve wanted for years. I saw a doctor in Beverly Hills whom one of my friends had recommended. He seemed perfectly capable and actually listened to me without mocking me, which, sadly, was already quite a step up from my previous experience, but he was far more expensive than I had anticipated, and I still didn’t feel that “ah-ha” moment with him. I went on a military deployment, saved up enough money to have the surgery done, and then discovered this site several months ago. I have been completely obsessed. I started following a few doctors based on their patients’ feedback, and eventually came across Dr Pousti, who just happens to be a 15 minute drive from me here in San Diego. When I saw that he also offers a military discount, I had to make the consultation.
I had no idea the consultation would take so long. In both of my prior experiences, I was in and out within about 20-30 minutes. I was at Dr. Pousti’s office for 3 hours! But it was great– I got to meet and talk to 3 of his current patients, who were in various stages of recovery, and even felt a couple of their results! Everyone in his office was so helpful and open. I was really shocked that they just let me feel their boobs! But it’s also brilliant marketing! I tried on sizers and narrowed it down to 300-350 CCs. I also had questions about lipo, since I’ve always had a bit of a “pot belly,” which doesn’t go away no matter how hard I work out. Both Dr. Pousti and a member of his staff, who had also had the procedure done, recommended I wait if I think I might be having kids in the next 5 years. I knew I was ready to schedule my surgery then. If they care enough about their patients to talk them OUT of procedures, as well as being completely transparent about the work done in the practice, I knew this was the place for me. And it turns out Dr. Pousti doesn’t even cut through the chest muscles- he somehow slips the implant in-between the muscles. I felt like, finally, most of my fears had been put to rest. I asked to schedule as soon as possible, and was told that a spot had opened up in 2 1/2 weeks, June 26th. I whipped out my wallet and put down the deposit. I’ve waited long enough for this. The 26th can’t come soon enough.

Testimonial:
Dr. Pousti and his staff are always amazing! Ive been a patient for the past 10 years regarding other procedures. They are always professional and Dr. Pousti explains everything. He does such a great job! I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. I got some botox in my forehead and it was really easy. No pain.. no complications. And considerably less then other spas and doctors advertise.
You get what you pay for. If you want the best, you need to go to the best! Dr. Pousti is amazing at what he does and hes kind and caring as well as his entire staff!

Vanessa his MA is wonderful and so professional , heather is just so amazing and caring. I can’t wait for my BA in September !!! Love this dr. He really is the best! Words can’t express how amazing he is !

Testimonial:
Dr. Pousti and his staff were the BEST! Very professional and caring. From the day 1 consultation to after the surgery they were amazing. I am very pleased with the results and the care I received. I am a Registered Nurse so i know excellent bedside care from a Doctor when I see it. Dr. Pousti is very professional and listened to what I wanted from the shape and the size. Excellent bedside manner. After surgery his staff were very prompt in calling me every day to check on me and my healing process. I did experience a minor bump in the road, i had a little superficial tear on my right breast after surgery which can happen after a breast reduction, Dr. Pousti saw me once a week to monitor it for a few weeks and reassured me it would get better, and it sure did. Overall I am very happy with my results and couldn’t ask for a better surgeon. One thing that stood out was His staff all knew my name when I walked in and were very caring. You could feel the genuineness. I would like to especially thank Heather, Bree, Daisy, Helen and Vanessa. My favorite staff members. I wasn’t nervous for surgery, but i felt very comforted by Heather his OR tech, I will never forget when she held my hand and rubbed my arm right before i received Anesthesia. Those are the little things that gave me a good experience. Definite 5 Star service. Thank you Dr. Pousti!! 🙂

Testimonial:
After meeting several Plastic Surgeons I knew Dr. Poutsi was the one for me, I knew it instantly. I had no doubt in mind after viewing his portfolio and after my consultation he would do a SPECTACULAR JOB! Vanessa, his Office Manager went above and beyond, Dr. Poutsi’s staff was absolutely amazing. After gaining 66 pounds during pregnancy and loosing it, I disliked looking at myself naked. My stomach sagged and no matter how thin I got, the loose skin was just there. I am SO incredibly happy I did this for myself. Its feels amazing to feel good naked.

Testimonial:
I was thinking about getting a breast augmentation for the last couple years. I finally decided it was time. I did my researcher a while and for the look and larger size that I was looking for. I knew Dr. Pousti was the ONLY doctor that could achieve my goals. I went in for my consult and immediately knew he was the plastic surgeon for me. I scheduled my surgery that same day! The staff is wonderful and Dr. Pousti’s bedside manner was exactly what I was looking for(the BEST). From beginning to end everyone made me feel so comfortable. The consult, pre-op, surgery and follow up after care was amazing. I am now 7 weeks post op and couldn’t be happier with the results. I can go on & on but honestly No words nor great reviews can describe what an amazing experience this was. I can never thank Dr. Pousti and his staff enough.

Testimonial:
I always had asymmetry between my breast, there was a full cup difference between them and I wanted to correct as much as possible that problem. I met Dr. Pousti via a friend that had her breast augmentation with him. I absolutely loved him. The first time I went I was a bit scared, so I had my boyfriend come with me, but I felt extremely comfortable with him. He is very professional and you can tell he is very knowlegable. I had previously taken to 2 plastic surgeons but I was never comfortable enough to pull the trigger. He is a great listener, and will give you exactly what you want if you have realistic expectations. The day of the surgery I decided to also do a lift on my left breast, but not a nipple reduction, now in retrospect, I wish I would have listen to Dr. Pousti and just let him do the nipple reduction. He never suggests anything unnecessary and he is not pushy, he will only make suggestions if he believes he can give you a better service, that will make you happier with the outcome, so if you have asymmetry listen to him!!!! He is great, he makes you take pictures of what you want so he can see your aesthetics, so take your time picking those, it is important.

Also one cannot forget about Dr. Pousti’s wonderful team. Everyone in there tried as much as possible to make you feel comfortable, and attend to your every need, and answer every question you could possibly have. They will call you daily at fist to check on you post surgery, which is great, because it makes you feel safe, and it takes away any worries you could have if you have any discomfort post surgery. They also schedule plenty of checkups, and if you feel anything that could be abnormal, they will immediately schedule you for an appointment. The location for the surgery is great, it makes you feel safe, and you can see the quality of care there is amazing. The nurses there are patient and very kind.

I absolutely recommend him!!! If I ever get any plastic surgery procedure I am going to go with him. All his patients love him, Dr. Pousti and his staff are truly an amazing group, with the best costumer service of any medical group I have ever seen!
Dr. Pousti is absolutely wonderful, he is professional, knowledgeable and very kind. He takes his time with every patient to get to know them, and listens to what the patient wants. I also love his honesty, he makes sure his patients know the most they can about the procedure, and the realistic expectations of the results. He will answer every question you have, and he is very easy to contact if you encounter any problems, or have any questions.

from my consultation they made me all comfortable. Even during the day on my surgery I wasn’t worried at all because I know I’m in good hands with Dr. Pousti. He is an amazing surgeon in so glad I found him. On the other hand his assistant Daisy she’s not only beautiful but very sweet lady and she’s very thorough about all the things that I have to do after my surgery. After my surgery when I got home the office called me I spoke to Daisy and Dr. Pousti…just checking on me how am I feeling. And the next day Daisy called me again that was very sweet of her…

Testimonial:
I have 4 kids, my last 2 were twins my stomach stretched out a lot, once I lost all my baby weight I saw my stomach was destroyed and will never be flat again. Which is why I thought of Dr.Pousti, I have had a breast augmentation done by him before which he did a great job on, But now I went back to him for a tummy tuck, Vanessa explained everything I needed to know at my pre-op appointment she was very sweet and helpful like always. That is one thing about Dr.Pousti himself and his staff that are always very friendly and helpful, makes me feel very comfortable and welcome. I’am getting ready for my surgery which is next Friday, and I’am extremely excited.
LDr.Pousti is a very talented man, he does great work. Not only is he great at what he does he also has a great personality, very informative and friendly. I definitely will be coming back to him and keep recommending him to everyone I know.

Let’s start with the outcome:
1 week, 2 days post surgery and I’m in love with my new “girls!!”

Overview:
33 year old female, 5’5″ height, 115-120 lbs (after losing 20 lbs)
32A cup with all the padding in the world. Before I lost weight I wore a 34C
Modest, happy, happy person
Always a little insecure with my breast size/fullness, surgery always in the back of my mind, but I was ok using push up bras $6000 vs $60- you do the math.

Motivation:
My weight and breast size have fluctuated over the last 10 years, not by much. Some days I loved my body, some days I didn’t.
About 2 years ago I made life behavior changes and am now at my healthiest and strongest, physically and mentally.
So let’s talk boobs!!- As expected the more weight I lost/muscle gained (yay!!), the more breast size I lost as well (aww).
After successfully living a healthier lifestyle and working on transforming my body (inside and out) to where I love it, there was one part of my body that I wanted to enhance but unable to do on my own, my breasts! I decided this getting a breast augmentation was something I wanted to do for myself, to treat myself for all the hard work I had done. It was like the cherry on top for my accomplishments.

So at 1 week post surgery:
Pros:
-I have boobs!!!
-World class people giving you world class service, taking care of you throughout the entire process
-Surge in confidence (even though they’re strapped down everyday while recovering)
-Very fast procedure
-Recovery gets better and easier everyday

Cons:
-I miss life’s little luxuries of taking showers and stretching! (you can wash, bottom down)
-Surgery is scary and there are risks! (Dr. Pousti and his staff help you through all the fears and deliver excellent service, risks are minimal with this team!!)
-Surgery costs money (but you can save for it or finance it or win the lottery!)
-Recovery can be painful (the medication helps and in the grand scheme of things it’s only temporary
-Recovery does take time (again in the big picture, years later this will seem like it was a blink of an eye

All of my star ratings are true, this team is top notch. All questions answered, never rushed. Dr. Pousti takes extreme care with his patients, end results, health throughout the process. Daisy calls me everyday to make sure things are going well with recovery. Dr. Pousti and his staff are amazing. Special shout out to Vanessa, Daisy, Bri and Estefania the girls that I’ve met and have been taking care of me at the office. Heather that took care of me right before surgery, answered any last questions. Dr. Hinkleman, the anesthesiologist, she was amazing as well, explained what would happened, put me at ease. The staff Dr. Pousti works with at the surgery center are amazing. (from the front desk, Susan the nurse during pre-op and Michael the nurse during post-op). And those were only the people that I’ve met, I know there are more people that have played a huge role in making my surgery a success.

Testimonial:
I am so excited for my surgery tomorrow with Dr. Pousti. I absolutely love the staff and the Dr. They are real people who care and have made me feel very comfortable about my upcoming surgery. I feel relieved to know I am great hands going into this! I was hesitant deciding on this procedure until I had a friend go to Dr. Pousti and her experience and results were absolutely wonderful. I had one consult and decided it was time and I found the right doctor for the best results! I will be posting updates throughout the journey after tomorrow!
The Dr. and staff have been extremely informative and comforting in preparation for my surgery tomorrow! I am so excited to see my results and feel so happy to have chosen Dr. Pousti for this big improvement!

Testimonial:
I first met Dr. Pousti in 2009 after doing some research on plastic surgeons for my daughter (26) who was wanting a breast augmentation. We immediately knew after meeting with him that he was our choice. My daughter could not be happier with her results & highly recommends him to all of her friends. I wanted a Mommy/Granny makeover for myself. My breasts are saggy (look like deflated balloons),my stomach has loose skin with stretch marks below my belly button (although I work out) I’m just not comfortable with the way I look naked. I desperately wanted to look & feel better in my own skin…I decided on Silicone Breast Augmentation (for fullness), Mastopexy III (breast lift), Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
I already knew that Dr. Pousti was my choice after he had done my daughters surgery !! I had my consultation & immediately the process was rolling…pre-op scheduled, surgery scheduled & because of my age (51) I had to get an EKG (for safety purposes) Dr. Pousti even recommended a fantastic cardiologist (in the same building, which was nice & convenient) I booked a hotel for the night before surgery & day of surgery (I highly recommend if you don’t live nearby-I’m approx. 2 hrs away) Dr. Pousti recommended a hotel near surgery center & I even received a referral discount. My pre-op appt was May 19 & at that time I had all of the markings done & had the pleasure of meeting Heather (Dr. Pousti’s assistant in surgery) I was getting anxious/nervous & she calmed me explaining every detail about surgery & assured me that she will be by my side the entire time. The next morning is surgery day & the first happy face I see is Heather & of course I was nervous. She sat with me the entire time in prepping process & definitely calmed my nerves because when Dr. Pousti arrived I was so relaxed & ready…Thank-you Heather !! The surgery went FANTASTIC & Dr. Pousti even came to check on me at the hotel that evening after surgery (Great bedside manner). I am now 21 days post-op & I feel amazing already for such a short time. I do realize it is still a long road ahead for healing, but I am so excited to see my end result. The most difficult part for me is not being able to be as active as I would like to be. Walking with a walker & staying hunched over is critical in healing (although can give back pain) I do short walks around my house & backyard. All of Dr. Pousti’s staff are amazing & check on me daily (Thank-You Daisy). I have been to his office several times so far since surgery to get drainage tubes removed, change dressing & check healing process. I barely get comfy in the waiting area & they’re already calling me back…love it !! Every visit has been with Heather (surgery assistant)…she is so friendly, professional & caring. She explained the process of what she was doing & answered all of my questions. It’s a GREAT feeling when I see Dr. Pousti & Heather walk in the door & to know I’m getting the best care possible !! Dr. Pousti is “The Best of the Best” & he has the most caring & professional assistant…Heather is Awesome !! If you want a “5 Star” Dr./Assistant…I strongly recommend Dr. Pousti, Heather & his Staff !!

Testimonial:
I had always been happy with the size of my breasts…36b…but over the years they were drooping so low there was no bra on the planet that was comfortable and my back and shoulders hurt all the time. I had thought about this procedure for four years and finally had enough and wanted to fix them before I turned 50. I knew if I just scheduled a date I would commit to it and be excited instead of scared. I consulted with three surgeons and chose Dr. Pousti based on his reviews, demeanor and assurance that he and his staff would take good care of me. He has worked with his surgical team for many years and that was also comforting. I also had lipo on lateral thighs and flanks to get rid of the muffin top! The day of surgery went very smooth and I was home before I really knew it. I am almost 8 weeks post op and doing well. I have lost 16 lbs since day of surgery, just from my diligent efforts to eat healthy to promote healing and walking daily. Dr. Poustis staff has been so kind during all my follow up visits, and Daisy called me every day for a week after surgery, even on the weekend, to check up on me and remind me to walk around and take deep breaths on a regular basis. Their office is very busy at all times, but somehow they make it all work and spend time with each patient. I know I am not at my final size yet for lipo results due to swelling, but I am already a couple sizes smaller! I am still healing but it’s going well and every day I am able to lift more and get back to my normal routine. This was my first surgery as an adult, and I surprised myself because I never really felt scared…I had total faith in Dr. Pousti and his team. Dr. Pousti, Daisy, his surgical team, and all the girls in the office are top notch and very kind and patient.

countless internet searches led me to finally trust my instinct and make a consultation with Dr. Pousti, of Pousti Plastic Surgery in the San Diego area of California. I was motivated to make the call due to his expansive knowledge in Breast Augmentation, XL Breast Augmentation and countless Breast Augmentation Revisions. I liked the look of his work, how much obtainable information there was on the surgeon, and how informative his website was. I made the call to what I had a feeling was going to be my ONLY consultation. Dr. Pousti has an amazing staff and the Doctor himself is a man of miracles! I have my dream body and I couldn’t have done it without entrusting myself to him! This man will give you the body of your dreams! I can’t recommend him enough! I was a little apprehensive going into my appointment, it was a big decision and I’m big on vibes. I know that not everyone is for everyone and we can’t like everyone we meet. I knew the moment I checked into my consultation that I loved his staff and when he stepped through the door and I got to meet Dr. Pousti, I knew right away, he would be doing my surgery! He is such a caring and humble man. Not only does he respect family but safety is his number one concern. He promised to do everything he could within the safety of giving me my dream breasts and he delivered! I LOVED that he wanted to see a visual of what you were seeing in your head. I made a dream board full of breasts that I did and did not like and he was able to verbalize exactly what I was hoping for! I look forward to my appointments and daily calls from his staff to check in on me and answer questions! Hands down the best! Thank you Dr. Pousti! I LOVE my new breasts!

Testimonial:
Am loving my new set!! I’m 34 and for my second augmentation I was all around ready for a larger size. After 3 consultations Dr. Pousti was the right fit for what I was longing for. He had sooooo much reference that I knew I was going to obtain the fullness and roundness. I have side boob for days!! Though I live in Orange County, it is very well worth the little trip. Dr. Pousti and his beautify staff are an amazing team! The entire team are very professional and knowledgeable. I wasn’t taken into a room and told what else I could do with my body. Dr. Pousti and his staff contacted me frequently after my surgery to make sure I was good to go.

Testimonial:
Prior to visiting Dr.Pousti I was not aware of what Tuberous Breast was. I just thought my breast didn’t fully develop and that was why they were not round and were so small. Dr.Pousti and his staff are super friendly and professional. After my consultation I googled Tuberous/ Constricted Breasts and sure enough I found pictures of other women who had breasts that looked like mine. Fast forward to today I am three weeks post op and I am super happy with the results I am seeing so far! I have round breasts and I feel really good about myself even though I am currently still wearing the post op sports bra. I wish I had done this procedure sooner. Very professional and talented!

Testimonial:
Always wished for boobs that could fill in clothing. After having 3 kids decided to do something for myself! No regrets! Went from an A to small C.
I looked up several different doctors and narrowed it down to a few. Ultimately decided to go with Dr. Pousti due to his credentials and reviews. Couldn’t be happier with my decision! Great experience!
If you are looking for a “Hollywood” Dr. then Dr. Pousti is not for you. If you are looking to get from point A to point B safe and get the results you truly ask for then Dr.Pousti is your man!! He and his staff are wonderful from your first apt to your last. I can’t say enough positive things about him. Integrity and honesty to the max! I felt completely comfortable speaking with him. Vanessa and Daisy are outstanding! Very caring and personable. I look forward to my followup apts. No regrets and love my results! I got exactly what I asked for and couldn’t be happier!!

Testimonial:
I initially wanted a BA before kids- I’m naturally small. I waited till after kids and still wanted the procedure done but I wanted to wait until I was over my self-loathing; I wanted to accept myself and not care what other people at the nude beach thought.
Two years ago I came to that point. I scheduled three consults, but didn’t act. I did a 180 and decided I liked my boobs as-is, no surgery.
I am back to considering a BA (we will have to put off buying a house for a few MORE years…). I am happy with myself, I have figured out what I’d like to achieve with a BA-
1) I would like my breasts full enough to support my nipples. As it is now they fold in/over when covered by bra or bikini.
2) I would like to fix the empty baggie look when I bend over.
My husband found Dr. Pousti through RealSelf and the consult is scheduled.
Review after Consult: Dr. Pousti and Vanessa were quite helpful. Obviously Dr. Pousti is a professional, but talking with him and interacting with him proved it on a deeper level. He is gentle, but not in a way that is pussyfooting and awkward. Just from the consult I was assured that he knows his business, he cares about his work and were I to commit to a BA I would have his full undivided attention. Dr. Pousti was able to answer the questions I had (why he prefers an incision at the aureola v breast crease, if one would be better in the long-term if I had medical issues, etc), he was complimentary, made easy small talk, included my husband very naturally in the discussion- this is his thing and he wants the results to please his patient and show his skill. I have a bit of a hernia at the naval that he noticed and just as an FYI told me the different ways it could be repaired and issues that may arise in the future. I have gone to consults when I was considering a full Mommy-Makeover and none of the other three PSs made me feel comfortable with the hernia fix, they didn’t explain any where near as completely or compassionately as Dr. Pousti did in just 3 minutes, and I wasn’t even there for that! When I’m in a position to tackle the mid-section I’ll be back to talk with Dr. Pousti. Vanessa listens really well, explains what to expect, thinks ahead to questions I may want answered (but just have no experience to even think to ask- totally appreciated) and brought in two example ‘dream boards’ which gave me some major inspiration and guidance.

Testimonial:
I went today to Dr. Pousti for my 3 year check up. I cannot begin to say how pleased I am with my results. My husband was waiting when my surgery was finished and Dr. Pousti came out and explained in detail the procedure. Dr Pousti has always been very professional and his bedside manner is impeccable. I have an will continue to recommend him to anyone who might want this procedure. Dr. Pousti is an amazing surgeon! I would recommend him to anyone Needing his service. His staff is also some of the greatest women I have ever been around!

Testimonial:
I wanted breast augmentation after 3 previous from other surgeons. I was impressed with the care received from Dr.Pousti and his staff. Vanessa, Christie and all of the staff are wonderful. I am completely happy with my augmentation going from 800cc to 1680cc. Wait time of .office visit was minimal. Dr. POUSTI was excellent addressing my concern over keloids. The incision is excellent and my husband and I are very pleased with the outcome.

Testimonial:
First off this review is way over due!! But better late then never. Dr. Pousti and his staff fall nothing short of amazing. I booked my initial consultation with him back in May of 2013. Going in I knew that I would need a lift along with implants because I lost around 30 lbs. Dr. Pousti told me all the pros and cons of going on with the procedure the day of my consultation. The difference between saline and silicone, under the muscle vs over etc etc. he made me feel that everything was going to go smooth but yet also said there is always a percentage of something going wrong because it was a lift and implants. After thorough research I went ahead with the procedure. I decided to to medium moderate profile with 425 cc under the muscle. At first everything was healing fine but as time went on I got a cc on my left breast. I want to say it was about six months out. Not Dr. Pousti fault but with his impeccable care and attention to detail as well bedside manner he caught this and I had a second surgery performed. I haven’t had any problems since! I’m currently 2 years post op and I’m very pleased with the work that he’s done!
Dr. Pousti is simply the best. From the moment you walk in his office all his staff greet you with such grace and a smile doesn’t hurt that their all gorgeous as well!! Vanessa and Anna are the sweetest! From beginning to end Dr. Pousti and his staff will answer any and all questions that you have, and he will even personally call you to check on you even months after surgery. I’m so happy and pleased that I picked him to do my BA.

Testimonial:
I have been wanting a breast augmentation for the past couple of years. And most recently they have made me feel more self conscious about my body. I requested some information online from Dr. Pousti’s website. Later that day I had received a phone call from one of receptionists in his office. They had happened to have a cancelation the next day and offered me the appointment.

Upon arriving to the office I noticed his office was full of patients. This was a good sign to me, and also being in the medical field that says a lot about someone’s practice. They got me in on time and myself as well as my mom and boyfriend were greeted by Daisy. She started out asking what brought me there today and what I was most unhappy about with my breasts. Once she finished her initial intake with me she went to get Dr Pousti. He was very friendly and you could tell how passionate about his job he was. He told me what I would benefit from and went over all questions I had as well as ask my mom and boyfriend their concerns. After his consultation was done Daisy came back into the exam room and set me up in front of the 3D vectra machine which allowed us to see before and after pictures of my breasts, and possible sizes. I also was able to try on a sizer bra with possible sizes. Dr. Pousti later entered the room to check in and to let me know one of his patients who was 1 week post op was willing to let me see her after work. Hers were amazing looking!!!

This type of customer service is what has made me feel comfortable with his practice. And I will be re writing this review after my sx date =)

Thank you Pousti Plastic Surgery for making the experience 100% comfortable

Hey everyone! So I’m super excited because tomorrow is my surgery date!! This whole thing is so surreal, I can’t believe it’s happening! I wanted to take some time to write out my journey through this whole thing since I know I really appreciated reading all of your guys’ stories. Thank you all! 🙂

My stats: I’m about 5’1″ – big B or small C cup – pretty petite, but not too much since I’m kind of a couch potato (that’s just me being completely honest!)

I’ve wanted bigger boobs ever since I was younger. Over the years it has been on my mind, and my financial situation finally allowed me to really get serious about getting them done. I came across Dr. Pousti a while back actually (when I wasn’t seriously looking for a breast augmentation). I was looking up doctors for fun back when I was in high school, and I remembered his name when I went back to actually search again for real! I researched his work thoroughly and looked at other doctors’ work as well. But to me, it seemed that Dr. Pousti really knew his stuff and had amazing results! So I went in for a consultation, and I spoke with Daisy, who is super sweet, and answered all of my questions. I even got to speak with one of Dr. Pousti’s patients too! When I spoke with Dr. Pousti, he felt genuine and even told me that it’s not a necessity for me to have them done. I felt no pressure to go through with it, but I set up my appointment that day anyways! 😀

Now here I am, and tomorrow is MY date! Yay! I really should be going to sleep now, so I will hopefully be updating soon. I will attempt to upload photos as well right now that way you guys can see what I’m workin with! My boobs aren’t bad. I actually like my boobs, I just want them to be BIGGER.

p.s. it is now 12:10am so I’m not able to select my procedure date as 06/05/2015…. so it says 06/06/2015. but really it’s June 5th!!!!

Had a wonderful experience at Dr. Pousti’s office, very professional. I received Botox in my forehead between the eyes. I have major frown lines between my eyes and had a previous bad experience with Botox. This was my 1st time seeing him. His staff was fantastic and so sweet! Especially Cindy!!!! They made me feel so comfortable. Love that they are military friendly too! Very happy with my results and will be back again. Dr. Pousti was very charming and friendly. He made me feel comfortable and at home right away. He did an amazing job and I am really happy with the results.

I have never had any cosmetic surgery until May 1st. I had heard great things about Dr.Pousti so of course I booked my consultation! I came in to a very caring and professional staff. I can’t say enough good things about Vanessa. She helped me make such an important decision that would change my appearance. We chatted for quite some time during my consultation and also had the opportunity to talk everything through with Dr.Pousti. He is super caring and at the same time gave me his professional opinion on what was going to give me the result that I wanted. I had an awesome experience at the surgery center as well. The whole process was explained thoroughly and I had the pleasure of having Dr. Pousti by my side when I was put to sleep. How many doctors do that??!! I would recommend my doctor and his practice to anyone that is looking into getting any cosmetic procedure done. Thank you to Dr. Pousti and his wonderful staff for all the support during my experience! Dr. Pousti is a super knowledgeable and professional doctor! I had an amazing experience and if down the line I decided to see him again….I would!!! No doubt!!

I knew since I had my daughter that I was going to need/want a lift and implants. After I had my son I was finally ready to go through with the procedure. I was nervous about the recovery time because my husband had to leave soon after my procedure. That was pretty much my only concern with getting this procedure done. I’m now 1 week post-op and I have to keep reminding myself to be cautious because I forget that I just had surgery!
Dr. Pousti is absolutely AMAZING! I had scheduled my surgery with another doctor previously and chickened out. When I finally decided to go through with it and schedule my surgery, they never returned my calls and I am SOOO thankful they didn’t, or else I would have never ended up at Dr Pousti’s office. I’ve never had a long wait in the office and he has always made me feel extremely comfortable. The most important thing I appreciated about Dr. Pousti was he didn’t promise results that were identical to the pictures I had in mind. He was realistic, and described in simple detail that it all depends on my body and how many cc’s my breasts would allow with a lift. I felt like that was very important because he was honest. My results have turned out exactly like I wanted, and are hands down a thousand times better than what I had imagined. Not to mention, there is not a single person in the office that I would give anything under 5 stars. They check on me daily and are there for any questions or concerns you have 24/7.

I’m really glad to share this experience with you all and I’m able to help someone make a decision to change their life. I’ve struggled with gynecomastia ever since childhood. I would never swim without a shirt. I would always dark, loose fitting clothing. As a senior in high school I weighed 280lbs. I made a decision to loose weight and hoping the man boobs would disappear. WRONG! I did drop down to 195lbs however the moobies remained. I began searching for an alternative route and surgical removal was that route. I went back and forth over the procedure for 12 years. I finally said enough is enough. I made an appointment with Dr. Pousti and from that moment my life has not been the same and it never will be. I can’t describe how great I feel. I’m only 7 days post-op at this point. I know the end result will be world class and I’m excited to start this new journey. Dr. Pousti and his team were absolutely phenomenal! He made me feel very comfortable and confident that he and his staff would provide me with life changing results and they delivered.

I have had such a good experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff, they are all very welcoming and make you feel so comfortable, like you are family. Both Dr. Pousti and his staff are so professional. I knew right then and there he was the one! Dr, Pousti was so informing on what he thought and did not rush any of my appointments. I had my post OP appointment on 1st of June and couldn’t be more excited. My surgery date is on the 18th of June, I will be getting a donut lift with a breast augmentation. My boobs became saggy and deflated after I had my child. I am currently a small D with no fullness on top. I will be getting 550 cc’s high profile under the muscle. I have absolutely no worries about surgery because I know no matter what Dr. Pousti will take care of me and put in his 100 percent effort on anything and everything he does to make a woman look and feel good again!! I will be uploading before and after pictures so please keep an eye out!!!

Testimonial:
I recently had a breast augmentation performed by Dr. Pousti and the service provided by he and his staff has exceeded my expectations in every way. Dr Pousti is extremely knowledgeable, honest, polite, and attentive to his patients. Likewise, his staff have contacted me almost daily to check up on me during the first two weeks following my surgery. Given the quality of his work and his reputation I also feel his prices and extremely fair. If you are considering a breast augmentation or another plastic surgery procedure you should definitely put him at the top of your list.

i went in originally for a coolsculpting consultation to find out i was not a good candidate due to the excess skin after having 2 children via c-section. not what i wanted to hear, or was prepared to hear but discussed my options with Vanessa and Dr. Pousti. i left seriously considering a tummy tuck but wanted time to think about it. less than 24 hrs. later i was convinced, comfortable & excited with my good decision to go to Pousti Plastic Surgery! they were able to schedule me very soon, i’m counting down the days. i first met with Vanessa; she is fabulous. so nice, genuinely concerned about my situation…love her. Dr. Pousti is wonderful too. they both were comforting & knowledgeable. i expect nothing but great results!

I am 31 and starting noticing the “11” lines in between my eyebrows about a year ago. When I looked at pictures of my younger self, the only real difference I could see from then to now, for the most part, were those 2 lines. I went to Dr. Pousti’s office, had a consultation in a private room, first with the Dr.’s assistant, and then with Dr. He explained what Botox does to the muscles of the face, helping them to relax so there is not constant contraction of the muscles, and because of this, it would soften those lines. Because of a scheduling conflict, I had my 20 month old nephew with me. The staff were AMAZING with him and one nurse even came in to the room where the Botox was being done in order to distract the baby and play with him. It was perfect! I was given an ice pack about 5 minutes before the doctor came in. I laid on the table and was told it would be like a mosquito bite. The assistant was also there to assist. I gave a big frown and in went the tiny needles. It was extremely tolerable and happened so fast, I said “We’re done already?” It probably took less than a minute total. The area around the procedure was slightly tender for a couple days, but not a big deal at all. Today is 2 weeks post and my lines have significantly reduced. The biggest difference is that before Botox, my eyebrows would automatically furrow, causing those lines. I didn’t even realize I was doing it. Now, that doesn’t happen at all. I still have movement in that area, as I should have, otherwise I would look like one of the Real Housewives with a frozen face. I still have facial expression! Overall, fantastic.
Dr. Pousti is calm, caring, so nice, and really made me feel comfortable. He has amazing bedside manner and took away all the anxiety of getting needles in my face. You can tell he really cares about his patients.

When I was 18 I had gastric bypass surgery. The last 10 years I’ve been carrying around this apron of skin. I’ve let hold me back from living & accomplishing my goals in life. I just have very low self-esteem and it was just time to make a change. & I am so happy and grateful that I was able to go through with this and I would do it over again. So over the last year I’ve been researching for a plastic surgeon & that’s when I found Dr.Pousti. I decided to go through extended tummy tuck with breast lift and augmentation. My surgery went great but we only were able to get the extended tell me Talk performed. I was losing too much fluid. I’m very thankful that my doctor made a good call safe for my safety. From the moment I met Dr.Pousti, I knew he was my PS Dr. I’m very content & comfortable with my decision. He’s very precise in his work & detailed. I’m very pleased. The staff at the office are just great

Testimonial:
Dr. Pousti and his office staff are extremely professional and nice. The surgery my child required was a labiaplasty and therefore we wanted to be sure that the surgeon we chose would not only have the proper experience as this is a unique procedure, but also that they would make us feel comfortable. Dr. Pousti has the utmost care for his patient’s comfort and I have even recommended him to other doctors that didn’t know who to refer a patient that requires this specialized surgery. Definitely deserves the five stars

I’m a 35 year old mother of a beautiful seven year old son and have been considering breast augmentation for a long time. Not only did the girls take a hit from breast feeding my son for 6 months but they have never really been proportionate with my body which has always fluctuated between a curvy size 8 and a curvier size 12.
My boyfriend and I began researching doctors in San Diego where we live and we immediately agreed that Dr. Pousti was both of our top pics to do the job. His reviews were amazing as was his track record. I love the look of his work from previous patients. Before long I had my initial consult where I discovered not only was he a very gifted surgeon but also had a very warm demeanor. He gave me options, spoke frankly about what would work best for my body. Before I left the office that day I booked my surgery.
I’m one week post op now and still very swollen but I am certain that within a couple months they are gonna look AMAZING! I’ll post more pics as my progress moves along but I highly recommend Dr. Pousti. You would be hard pressed to find a more gifted surgeon to perform this procedure.
Dr. Pousti was amazing. He was warm, friendly, a good listener and very attentive. His staff is great as well. They checked on me frequently and answered all my questions in a timely manner. He’s a great doc running a great practice and best of all he makes beautiful breasts 🙂

I was recommended to Dr. Pousti by a friend. I knew it was the right place when I walked in the office. Everyone is so warm and inviting and friendly. Dr. Pousti is also very professional and truly cares about his patients. Surgery was great, results amazing. They call and check on you daily! Thank you!
Dr. Pousti is very professional and personable. He really cares about his patients. He is very good about questions that I didn’t even think of and then answering them. He knows his job well and performed a perfect revision on me. Thank you Dr. Pousti. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering having this done.

Since I was a child, I’ve wanted boobs. I heard from grownups that my boobies will arrive “when you’re a grown up!” Throughout the years, I waited for my boobies to develop. But they never did. As a 22 year old today, I think it is fair to say that I am now a full grown adult. I am an adult who has worn push up bras since the sixth grade. I think it is also fair to say that my boobies won’t be coming. My chest is so flat, I can do homework assignments on my chest if I really needed a flat surface. For the past year, I’ve been doing obsessive research. I’ve come to the conclusion that I am going get my boobies done this summer. I’m giving myself something that I’ve wanted since I was a little girl. I’m terrified, I’m confused, but I’m very excited. I really cannot wait. I don’t care how much pain it’ll be when I wake up after operation. I don’t even care about the infamous Day 3 post-op, which is said to be the most painful day of recovery. I’m even swallowing my fears about the scary warning of a 10% of capsular contraction along with the additional thousand$ that it may cost, in the case that a capsulectomy or revision is needed. Needless to say, I just want my boobs already. Thank you for reading this rather lengthy story. Reading everyone’s stories have been an enormous help through my research. I’m really glad to be here to have and share the support through this milestone of my life.
I’ve only met him once so far. It was during my pre-op appointment because our consultation was via email. When I met Dr. Pousti, I think he was able to tell that I was a bit nervous. He cracked some jokes and did a fine job with easing some stress. His demeanor was very relaxed, confident, and he also answered a few questions I had: Q: During surgery, do you use electro cautery, or blunt dissection method? A: Electro cautery for a speedier recovery. Q: What are the first signs of Capsular contraction? And when will I know if I have it? A: By the second month, if both breasts do not drop at the same time, or if one becomes very firm, I’ll diagnose any existing CC. There is only a 1-2% chance of it happening. Q: What about uniboob / symmastia? A: This occurs from over dissection of the pocket, or when girls with smaller frames chooses an implant that was too large. Q: What if I were to develop capsular contraction? What can I do from there? A: If any complications arise within the first 10 years, the implant company offers a $3,600 insurance. My surgery date is set for 5/29/15. I’ll journal my experience here, and hopefully be able to reach out to someone who is considering a breast augmentation. We don’t have to feel alone through this!

SUPER pleased with my results! I’ll refer anyone and I plan to return for future procedures! I got a breast lift with implants and I am so in love with my boobs now! I can’t wait until these incisions fully heal and I can shop for some new bras and shop for some new cute tops and dresses! Totally feel a confidence boost! I had always half joked that I was going to get a boob job one day. I was never happy with the way my breasts looked. I never had full perky boobs- even before kids. I breastfed my 3 children (each for at least a yr) and grew from a 34B to a 36C/D. After breastfeeding my breasts were truly a sad state of affairs. I felt like I always had to wear a bra and was very limited in tops and dresses that I would have liked to wear. February 2015 I had finally decided that I was going to get a lift- and implants. I scoured the net for reviews and kept coming to Dr Pousti. I couldn’t believe how many high reviews and raves he received. Since this was a major procedure and big deal for me (never had surgery) I wanted to consult with more than one plastic surgeon. I also didn’t want to fall for the hype of what I read online. So I went on 2 consults only. Dr Pousti was my second consult. Let me just say BELIEVE the hype!!! It is so real. My first consult and I was thoroughly pleased, impressed and put at ease. I really can’t say enough words. All of the staff there (Cindy, Daisy, Vanessa, Bree- sorry if I forgot anyone!) are amazing and just awesome people. I booked a second consult that day and on my second consult I booked my surgery. That’s how sure I was. I started to freak out and get nervous a few weeks before the surgery. I was able to see Dr Pousti 6 days before the procedure and he and his staff once again reassured me that I would be safe. I’m sure it was the same questions being asked yet again but they were all patient with me. Safety is a major, top priority for Dr Pousti. Let me just say that he and his staff were patient with me and very honest about what to expect, considering my own individual anatomy. He did express concerns about going to big as I was getting a lift and said that I may require a 2 stage procedure (which I did not want). So I did not have to get 2 surgeries! I was very happy about that. And at first I felt disappointed because I’d only got 375 cc (I’m 5’7″, 157lbs) and I had hoped to at least be in the 400s. But today at 1 month post op, I can say I feel that these are pretty huge on me- and I’m very happy! The day of the surgery I was super nervous but excited. I was concerned about “going under” but again Dr P and his awesome staff reassured me. I was worried I’d be too nervous to be put to sleep. Dr Pousti said “oh you will go to sleep” LOL. And it’s true. I checked in, completed paperwork got hooked up to an IV with antibiotics. Things seemed to happen pretty quickly after that. I was already in a gown, compression socks and booties. There was this really cool thing that I could control that blew warm air into my gown. They’d inserted an IV and had some antibiotics going. I spoke to the anesthesiologist and I was feeling good. ..very comfortable.I was then walked over to the OR and assisted on to the table. I really don’t remember much after that aside from someone holding my hand and saying to have a good dream. I felt this quick warm feeling take over me and I was out! I was so groggy afterwards. And in pain! I think they have me something twice and then said that was all that they could give me. I was already wearing a surgical bra (don’t remember any of that) and was assisted into my hoodie. The first week was sheer torture for me. I’m not going to lie. I was on so much pain. The percocet was a joke. I couldn’t keep anything down. ..the little that I did attempt to eat. After a while I was basically puking out my guts and then the meds. So I was hurting bad! I wanted to cry. I couldn’t keep anything down and if I wasn’t even keeping down small amounts to help the meds I was feeling worse! The stupid patch was pretty much useless. I mad my hubby take it off. I really don’t remember when the nausea and vomiting stopped but I do think the Zofran helped. I called the office and they told me to take the zofran and drink Gatorade as too much eater may make it worse. It did get better once the nausea was gone and I actually took my meds on schedule instead of waiting for the pain to strike (DON’T do that btw!) Week 2 I still had some discomfort but much better. Now at week 4 I’m feeling much better. I still struggle sleeping comfortably and I get muscle spasms still but all in all I’m very pleased. I am very glad that I chose Dr Pousti and have already referred him to 2 other women. I freaking love his staff and I look forward to my appointments mostly just to “see” them. Dr Pousti has an amazing bedside manner, he’s funny, he puts you at ease and you feel absolutely no pressure from anyone there! I was able to meet a patient prior to my surgery and saw what her results were like from a breast lift with implants. I’ve talked to 2 prospective patients and I hope that I’ve helped them make the right choice. I know I did. I had/have total 100% confidence in Dr. Pousti and his staff. I do regret a single thing- except that I did not do this sooner! I hope he doesn’t plan on retiring within the next 5 years because I most likely will return for a tummy tuck (if my fitness doesn’t get me the results I want) and maybe go for a revision to go a bit bigger.

Ten years ago I decided to have breast augmentation surgery, kids were grown and was time to do something for myself. Little did I know it was going to take so long to get where I am today. I am finally happy with my body and enjoying life again. I owe it all to the talented artistry of Dr. Pousti.
I had my first surgery done only to have capsular contracture in one breast. I was devastated and the only thing I could think about was having revisionary breast augmentation. Well, that didn’t go as expected, the outcome was the same. What I thought was going to be a great time in my life wasn’t turning out that way. At this time I knew I had to find the best surgeon out there who specialized in revisionary breast augmentation. I was now on a mission, I spent so much time online researching and I went on numerous consultations with surgeons over the years but I just hadn’t found the right one yet. One day I decided to pick up my search again after a few months and I had come across Dr Pousti’s website and I was very impressed with what I saw. I decided to make an appointment for a consultation. I was very skeptical going into this but also optimistic because I knew there was a surgeon out there who could help me.
I got such a warm welcome as soon as I walked into the office, everyone was so nice it put me at ease right away. My consultation with Dr. Pousti was so laid back, I immediately felt comfortable. He took so much time going over my history and gave me all my options. I had a lot of questions and concerns, all were answered without making me feel that were not valid questions or was that I was being rushed. I knew at that point I had found the right surgeon to put my trust in. I felt confident enough to schedule a surgery date before I left the office.
Today. I am very happy with my results, not to say that it wasn’t a bumpy road along the way. I knew all to well going into any surgery that there were risks involved and possibility of complications, to nobody’s fault. This time was no exception. The exception this time was having a surgeon who was there with me through the difficulties and complications. I was not going through it alone, the phone calls from the girls in the office, to knowing that I could get a hold of Dr. Pousti with any questions anytime was comforting. Dr. Poust made it so easy to keep a positive attitude through the surgeries that I would have to have to get where I am today. I will be forever filled with gratitude for Dr.Pousti”s perseverance and commitment .
I would highly recommend Dr Pousti to anyone who is looking for an amazing plastic surgeon. He is excellent at what he does, his passion and commitment to his work shows through in his work. To the staff in his office and at the surgery center, you are the best and I thank all of you for being so kind and caring. Dr Pousti, I greatly appreciate everything you have done and what you have given back to me. It has been a long journey for me and you have made it a successful one. THANK YOU AGAIN, Wendy

I had been looking to do breast augmentation for a long time I was referred to Dr. Pousti from 3 of my coworkers . From beginning of the process Dr. Pousti and he’s staff displayed absolute professionalism and were a pleasure to deal with. My procedure went great I was an “a” cup with constructive tuberous breast and wanted to be a full “d” cup . He did a nipple areola lift with 700 cc silicone gel implant and everything was just looks great as I would have expected..
He has excellent bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable

Surgery scheduled for this Friday, 22 May with Dr. Pousti. I’m really scared the closer the day nears, but I trust in in good hands. Dr. Pousti and his staff have been nothing but wonderful, understanding, and patient with me. I’m really nervous about the healing process. I’m active duty military, really active and love working out. I just want to get back to my normal routine as quickly as possible. This week my goal is to stay calm and not overthink the process. Wish me luck! 🙂
It’s Monday morning, and I am feeling anxiety about my upcoming procedure. I have some feelings of guilt because I’m healthy, so why put myself through the pain? Seeing other women’s results on this site has really helped. This is something I’ve wanted for a long time and decided to just go for it. I’m not getting any younger, right? 🙂 what helped some of you ladies stay calm before going under?
Dr. Pousti is very understanding and patient. I never felt rushed and felt like he understood my concerns to want results that will not impose on my active lifestyle. His staff is wonderful especially Vanessa. She took a lot of time talking with me explaining what to expect following surgery. She was very patient and understanding. So far, a very positive experience!

I had meant to start writing about my journey earlier but now that I am drugged up and recooperating in bed I figured there’s no time like the present.
About a year ago I really got serious about looking for a doctor that I could really entrust to fix my breasts. I developed at a young age, I was already a b cup in 4th grade. I was surrounded by brothers and grew up a tomboy playing every sport under the sun. I think the years of that and so much running without a good sports bra set me on the path of having droopy breasts. I continued to develop into a 36 D and everyone always complimented me on my boobs but they had no idea that I had to holster them up into a nice push up bra to have them look good. The most irritating parts of life were how tight my bra straps had to be to get them to sit up high. Especially when it came to wearing a bikini, I would have to tie the strings around my neck so tight to have them look perky that my neck would be raw and in pain with the indentations.
I figured one day I’d get them fixed but that I would hold out until maybe having a family and breastfeeding first. I had these feelings probably about 12 or so years ago. Well as life unfolded I had to care for my family members that weren’t doing well and lost any kind of priority on my own personal vanity. About 6 years ago I made a best friend who then became my lover and husband. We had made the choice after having to help care for so much family over the years that we were happy just to be the two of us without and children. My husband knew how I felt about my breasts however, so he told me he loved me just the way I was but if it would make me happier then he fully supported me getting a breast augmentation.
And thus began my search for the right doctor. I live in LA with the Beverly Hills plastic surgeon community right next door. There’s a million boob docs there at one’s disposal but I had seen several of my girlfriend’s that had their breasts done there and I wasn’t a fan of their work. I thought to myself that I would just keep searching and cross referencing sites and reviews until a doctor stood out above the rest even if that meant that I would have to travel out of town to find the right one for me.
It was finally on this website that I thought maybe I had found the one. I was reading the journey of a lady that was so ocd and picky but her doctor worked with her through every detail until she felt comfortable. This doctor was doctor Pousti. As I continued to read more and more journeys that various women have posted that had used him it became clear that this was the doctor for me.
Since we live in LA my husband took time off work to go to San Diego to meet him for a consultation. Some people may have an issue with paying the $100 consultation fee but it goes towards your surgery once booked and when someone is that skilled at their profession they do not do consultations for free.
Cindy was our first assistant there that really took her time to understand our likes and dislikes. We went through a lot of pictures together to fine tune what look we were trying to achieve. Dr. Pousti asks that you create a vision board of pictures for goal photos on one side, and photos of what you don’t like on the other. During this same appointment we met two of his clients that had recently had their augmentation and showed us his work and answered any questions we had.
From there we were confident that he was the right doctor for us. We booked our surgery for the following month and that just happened yesterday morning. His team of ladies were sweet and comforting, Dr. Hinckleman (sp?) was the anesthesiologist and she was great. When I came to in the recovery room I had Crystal helping me and she was an angel. Best bed side manner ever. She was actually going to fly out that night to Guatemala to volunteer in helping those with cleft chins. I told her she was my hero.
So now it’s been a full day, I’m not going to lie the pain is substantial. it is very difficult to sit and sleep in the same upright position. I am taking my medicine very regularly. My follow up appointment is in two days. I will share more later…

48 hrs. after surgery:
Just had another call from the doctor… He spoke with my husband to check in on me. It is very thoughtful of him to put personal attention into his patients and I really appreciate him.

Today is the day to start the colace laxatives…. Apparently all the pain meds keep you backed up so you definitely need the laxative assistance. Since we live about two hours away we just decided to stay locally to the doctors office that they have a special corporate deal with. Room was reasonably priced, here for 4 nights. Staying at the Handlery hotel, room is ample size, includes a mini fridge and a ton of pillows. I brought a hot pot for boiling water to make some instant food and snacks. The first day though I only felt like nibbling saltiness crackers and drinking ginger ale. I would recommend packing lots of fluids and little snacks in a cooler to prevent having to run around town for food. Also. I have learned the hard way that it would have been very smart to bring a airplane neck pillow!! When you’re sleeping upright the neck tends to roll down uncomfortably. My husband rolled a large towel and wrapped it around my shoulders and neck which helped so much for when I’d intermittently passed out. Also thank goodness for Netflix, brought our laptop… So much nicer than changing through channels and commercials on tv. Our sleep schedules are totally out of whack though, since we are spacing out all the meds I keep waking my husband every hour or two through the night so we end up on and off snoozing throughout the day.
Tomorrow morning is my follow up appointment…. Hopefully my drainage tubes can come out and we can head home. I have no idea what my breasts look like, doc says I’m going to love them and I believe him. I think I’m supposed to be fully bandaged for a month before I get to see them. Oh also I don’t think I specified what my procedure was but I had an anchor lift and implants done. The anchor lift is the most severe surgery for a lift so I think that’s why the pain originally has been very strong. I am super excited to see what my new girls look like!!

All I ever wanted was to be able to fill out a bathing suit, wear a strapless shirt or a V-neck top with out looking like a 15 year old boy. I have always worn padded bras & bathing suit tops in order to create some sort of breasts. Remember the waterbra? Lol I remember after having my daughter and my milk came in how excited I was to have big breasts (even if was only temporary); I ran and put on my lowest cut tank top and danced in front of the mirror (post pregnancy belly be damned). I have tons of self confidence and felt that the only thing missing was boobs. When I went for my consultation I was surprised to hear that I needed a breast lift as well. I was scared about the scarring and recovery of a lift! Because I was so small breasted I didn’t need a huge lift. Dr. Pousti was wonderful when I expressed that I did not want an anchor lift. He explained that it was going to be a minor lift with the incision around my areola; and that as I healed the scars would blend in & be barely noticeable. Dr. Pousti also said he could reduce the size of my areola; amazing!! I always felt they were too round! I had my surgery only a week ago and can already see how much I am going to LOVE LOVE LOVE my new breasts. I still have the surgical bra and padding on but feel so beautiful & excited to wear anything with confidence. When I got see the post surgery pictures I can already see that the scarring is going to be minimal and my nipples are going to look GREAT!
10 days post op: Feeling great! No more pain meds, I have occasional soreness but nothing a little Advil can’t take care of. I go tomorrow for removal of the original surgical bandages. I can’t wait to see how I look! Will post full pics after.
Dr. Pousti is AMAZING! He immediately made me feel at ease during my consultation. He answered all my questions and listened to what I wanted and didn’t want. I was impressed that the day before my surgery he made sure to speak with me on the phone to reassure me that everything was going to be great! His office staff are so incredible! They called to check on my recovery within just a few hours of my coming home. They have called to check on me everyday since my surgery & was even given the Dr.’s cell number in case of emergency over the weekend. When I went for my first follow up I was given flowers!! WOW! I am truly impressed with the amount of attention to my comfort and recovery. Dr. Pousti and his team make you feel like you are their only patient and are so kind and caring! If I decide in the future that I would like any other improvements I would only choose Dr. Pousti!

Dr Pousti and his staff have made my experience well worth it! The girls at the office are all extremely friendly and helpful which is always a plus! Dr Pousti listened to my concerns and made sure he had the perfect idea of what I wanted. I am overly happy with how the results from my breast augmentation have come out!

I cannot say enough good about my experience with Dr.Pousti and his staff. I have always been in the IBTC (itty-bitty-titty-committee) and for 8 years i wanted to resign from it! Financially, it seemed crazy to pay $6000 or more for a pair of boobs, so that ended up stopping me from doing the augmentation for 8 years. This post will be full of TMI and embarassing facts but to really let you know how inconfident of my body i was, my husband did not see my pre-augmentation boobs until WELL AFTER we were married and pregnant because they finally grew a little (i dont know if i should pity him or applause him!). Looking back one week after surgery, i regret the time i lost these years where i could have been more confident in myself, and i wish i did them sooner. The money was worth it already. I am so pleased with my body now. I had a baby 9 months ago and any other mother knows how much your body changes and how it negatively affects your confidence and (sorry to be blunt but,) sex life with the hubs! Even though i was flatter than a pancake, my husband was always telling me “your body is perfect! Dont change a thing !”. My advice ladies?… Your husband will (AND SHOULD) always tell you “that meatloaf was better than my moms” even when it was burnt to ashes. Dont listen to them lol. Yes, im happy my husband found perfection in my no-boobed chest, but i can see the distinct change in his affection now that i look more like a woman lol.
All jokes aside, Dr.Pousti and his staff had excellent customer service that went above and beyond any business ive ever delt with. I work in the medical field and to personally reviece a call from your doctor to check up on you pre and post op is a very rare and appreciated thing. Every day after surgery i recieved a call from either Dr. Pousti himself or his staff to see how i was doing or answer any questions. 4 days after surgery i had a post op visit and i recieved beautiful roses from Pousti and his staff which really made me smile. The surgery was a breeze. The only downfall was the two hour wait before the appointment, but its understandable.
Overall, 10/10; Would do it again if my boobies werent already perfect!
🙂 THANK YOU Pousti and staff.

I had been contemplating undergoing breast augmentation surgery for years. I met with several surgeons, looking for someone qualified, highly trained, an most importantly honest when it came assisting me in choosing the perfect implant to achieve my goals. Dr. Pousti and his staff far exceeded my expectations! Dr. Pousti is absolutely meticulous in his work. Him and his staff truly care and go out of their way to make their patients feel comfortable and special. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results!

To Doctor Pousti and his quality staff (with a special shout out to my girl Vanessa),
Thank you thank you thank you thank you. There simply aren’t enough word combinations I could string together that would adequately describe how I feel about this whole experience. If I had to sum it up in one word though I suppose I would chose grateful. I am truly grateful to have met all of you. I have wanted a breast augmentation for over 10 years. Now at 26, with once perky Cs deflated to -As thanks to 2 beautiful breastfed babies, it was finally time! After a year of extensive internet research I found 3 doctors I was willing to consult with. I have Leiden Factor V, a blood clotting condition that leaves me at a higher risk for clots so I wanted to make sure I was meeting with only the best. Doctor Pousti was my first (and last) consult. Upon arriving for my initial consult each and every staff member was friendly and welcoming. Vanessa was the first to bring me back and go over my situation. We jumped right into saline vs silicone, over the muscle vs sub muscular, incision site, her own experience with breast augmentation by Doctor P and anything and everything breast related that I can think of. By the time Doctor Pousti came in to meet me I was well informed and excited! Doctor Pousti did not fail to impress. He was kind, genuinely listened to what I wanted, spoke knowledgably and still managed to be relatable. He promised to consult with his peers and do further research into my blood condition and what that might mean for me pre and post surgery which was the biggest thing that put me at ease. Within 15 minutes of meeting I knew 100% that I could trust this person with my vision and my body. We decided to go 550-600cc max but I left the final decision up to the Doctor, creative license if you will. The office called me multiple times a week in the 4 weeks leading up to my surgery to check in and see if I had any more questions. I didn’t but the fact that they left that door wide open was a huge comfort. Surgery day went smoother than I ever could have imagined. The staff at the surgery center were equally as friendly and accommodating as the staff at his office. I was led back into a room and dressed to the nines in an awesome purple frock. This thing even had a warm air tube connected to me to keep me comfortable. Nurses checked on me from the moment I entered the room, even nurses not assigned to me, way to make a gal feel special! I have never been treated so well at a hospital facility. I was hooked to an IV drip by a gentle handed nurse who proceeded to introduce me to my soft spoken anesthesiologist who would be in my OR. She walked me through the entire process of what would happen, how the anesthesia would feel like going up my arm (cold) and explained that I would be out in 10 seconds. She left and Dr Pousti came in and re addressed all the aspects of my procedure and marked me up. At this point my husband who was able to be with me this whole time was sent to the waiting room. A sweet nurse Lydia who would also be in the room walked me back to the OR where I was greeted by a smiling Dr Pousti, the anesthesiologist and two other nurses. Lydia and Doctor P held my hands and gave the word for the anesthesia, then it was nap time for me. I woke up to minimal pain and an AWESOME nurse Soli who did me a solid and got my pain meds going through the IV immediately. For the next 45 minutes I was taken just as good care of as I had been prior. My husband was sent back and I was sent home. I am now 7 days post op with 550cc breasts and I couldn’t be happier. For aesthetic and safety purposes Doctor Pousti made the executive decision to go smaller than the 600cc max out we talked about. It blew me away that he cared enough about me to not overfill simply because he COULD. This speaks volumes about his character as a person, not just a PS. Before this plastic surgery adventure I just assumed plastic surgeons were in the business for a quick pay day, Dr Pousti changed my mind. He treated me as a valued person and not just a “patient” or “client”. Vanessa and Daisy have called me everyday since surgery to check on me and send well wishes. You really all are the best!! Even after all my post op appointments are said and done, I still plan on dropping in and saying hi to these lovely people. Bottom line: I would recommend anyone to Dr Pousti. Wish I could give 10 stars! This post ran much longer than intended but Pousti Plastic Surgery is worth it and I hope any of you on the fence feel a little closer to making the right decision!!
Side note: Everybody’s pain tolerance is different but as far as my pain management I am a firm believer in positive thought yields positive results. I have experienced very minor pain because of this. I also used a holistic healing technique called reiki before and after surgery. Hope this helps you on your journey 🙂

My experience: I’m 22 years old and have been considering a breast augmentation for a little over two years after power lifting and a military lifestyle had affected the appearance of my chest. The experience was beyond amazing. The staff was extremely welcoming and comforting. With this being my first plastic surgery consult I was extremely nervous about all of this. The staff made me feel so comforatble, most of his staff are patients as well so they can relate to and your needs! Dr.pousti is a professional! He will help you understand your options such and if the procedure is even right for you! He makes you feel important and not like a number! I was able to meet woman who were post op at my consultation to tell me about their experience and what t ok expect, how awesome is that? I was able to try a sizer bra to show what.differnt implants looked like on me, as well as use their state of the art equipment to upload a picture of myself and show how I would look with different implant sizes too! Very helpful! I wish everyone could get it right the first time and come to dr.pousti and meet himself along with his professional and comforting staff! I am so looking forward to my procedure in two weeks!
Thank you Dr. Pousti!!!!

Dr. Pousti a day his staff are beyond amazing! I was so nervous about my consultation for a breast augmentation, but the moment you walk into his office it’s good vibes and professionalism! I was able to meet a few of his staff who are also his patients so they told my their experiences which was super comforting. once I met with dr.pousti he was so Profesional! I knew right then and there he was going to be my doctor.Right now I am scheduled for 450ccs for may 26th! With a benelli lift as well! Weightlifting has really taken a toll on my breats… 🙁 , I’m ready to have thesee babies back!

If there was a 10 star selection, that still wouldn’t be enough to rate my experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff. From the initial consultation, which lasted an hour an a half, I felt beyond comfortable and excited to have Dr. Pousti perform my surgery. In my case, I needed to have a lift in my left breast, and my major concern was uneven scarring. Because Dr. Pousti performs his surgery by cutting around the areola to create the lift, I was not going to have one scar different from my other breast, which made me extremely happy. On my 3 week pre-op appointment, again, I was comfortable, excited, and all of my questions were answered fully. Day of surgery was a great experience for me. I went in excited and not nervous at all. Once you meet Dr. Pousti, you will see what a calm, even keeled doctor he is, which gives even more reassurance. The procedure was about an hour and a half, I was up and gone an hour later. Every day since my surgery I have received calls from Dr. Pousti and his staff, talk about world class service. I can not say enough great things about my entire experience, and would recommend him to anyone. I am only 10 days out of surgery and I am already so happy with my results. I can not thank Dr. Pousti and his staff enough!

I searched for a doctor for my breast augmentation for a couple of years. Once I met Dr. Pousti and his stuff, I knew I found the right doctor. Dr. Pousti was very educational, thorough and upfront with me. He took the time to answer any questions and concerns that I had and put me at ease and explained every step of the procedure including what to expect after the surgery. The surgery and results were tremendous. I can’t be more happy with the results. The after surgery care it was just as exceptional. Either Dr. Pousti himself or one of his assistants called me every day after the surgery for a week, including over the weekend, to make sure I was doing OK and comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr.Pousti for anyone who is looking to improve their body through surgery. The quality of work and the amount of carrying the entire staff showed was remarkable.

Testimonial:
First and foremost I want to thank Dr. Pousti and his staff for such a positive experience.  Prior to meeting Dr. Pousti I had undergone two breast augmentation surgeries.  I had my first in 2005 and my second in 2007. In 2007 I maxed out what was the traditional “conservative” plastic surgeon’s recommendation with 800cc silicone implants. I loved the results but I went on to have two amazing daughters which I breastfed back to back in 2010 and 2011. My breasts needed some work.  They weren’t as perky anymore and I had lost some of my own breast tissue from nursing. I also had lateral displacement of my implants. Basically, when I laid on my back my breasts went into my armpits which left quite a considerable space in my cleavage area. I also knew I wanted to go bigger. Here is when the research started-I met with my former plastic surgeon and his opinion was that I needed a full anchor lift and all the scarring that came with that. I felt it was overkill and was saddened by the recommendation but I booked my surgery trusting his advice. After more thought, I decided to look into the option of over filled saline implants and maybe a little “pocket tightening”.  I first learned about Dr. Pousti from his AMAZING website.  The testimonials and photos said it all. I knew I needed to rethink my decision and have a phone consultation with him. I emailed photos (frontal and side) and he got back to me via telephone very promptly. To my excitement he told me he thought I didn’t need a lift. He also was willing to go as big as was safe for my body. I canceled my other surgery and put down my deposit for my surgery in San Diego. The website and staff had wonderful recommendations on which hotels they recommended their patients stay at and the hotels even offered a discount for being his patient. I was also given the name of a great after surgery recovery nurse who went on to do a phenomenal job of taking care of me post op for the first 24 hours. When I met Dr. Pousti for my pre op the day before surgery I instantly knew I had made the right decision to have my surgery performed by him. He is such a skilled, caring and kind person. At my pre op he recommended I have internal sutures placed to correct my implant displacement and promised he would take great care of me. I am absolutely insanely in LOVE with my new breasts. I would never trust my body to another plastic surgeon after meeting Dr. Pousti.  As a former model, I can tell you that I almost idolize the man for giving me back the breasts I had before having my children. I would recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone who wants the job done right. Flying out for surgery, especially alone, can be a scary thought but it is such a worthy investment. The moment you walk into his office-no matter the distance you have traveled-you will feel at home. Thank you Dr. Pousti for changing my body and my life.

I am a 41 year old and have been fighting my weight gains and losses ever since I was 23 years old. In high school I thought I looked okay. It wasn’t until I married and had 2 children that my weight problem got serious. Every year the pounds just kept adding up until I was at 265 pounds and didn’t know how I got there. I tried many different weightless programs, and always seemed to put the weight back on just as fast as I lost it.

After 2 years of hard work at the gym and watching what I ate, I managed to loose 80 pounds, which left me with what I called my “skin tutu” around my middle and my breast hung down to my waist, which my kids referred to as my “cuddle buddies” because they laid on the bed next to me.

The more I lost the worst I looked! I wanted to love the body I worked so hard to get, but that isn’t what happened. The skin would just hang worse every pound I lost I wanted to love my body.

I started looking on the Internet at “mommy makeovers” before and after pictures, and at people like me who lost a lot of weight, and wanted the skin removed. I would say for every 10 women that I found, that I looked like in there before pictures, and loved their after pictures, 8 out of those 10 women were done by Dr. Pousti.

I looked at before and after pictures for at least a year prior to my surgery, wondering if I should do this or not. I was scared of what was involved and how I would look after. I didn’t want to look like one of those women who have surgeries and look worse afterwards.

Well, with the love and support of my fiancé, my children, my parents and my friends, I decided to make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Pousti.

The day of my consultation, my fiancé and my mother came with me to my appointment. We went to Dr Pousti’s office in Murrieta, Ca. The moment I walked in, it felt so right. The women who work there were not just stunningly beautiful on the outside, but on the inside. They made me feel so comfortable and at ease! Dr. Pousti came in and looked at me and said he thought I would have amazing results. He suggested having an extended tummy tuck and a breast reduction, with some liposuction.

I weighted in at 207 and knew I had more weight to lose. I wanted to have this surgery in January when my business is slower. Dr Pousti suggested that an ideal weight he would like me to be for surgery was 180 pounds. Well, I was within a few pounds of my goal when surgery day arrived.

About 1 month prior to my scheduled surgery, my fiancé found out he had Thyroid Cancer. I wasn’t sure if I should cancel my surgery with Dr. Pousti. When I came in to see Dr. Pousti he could see I was nervous about my fiancé’s news. Dr Pousti asked who the surgeon was and he personally called every ENT Dr. That he knew to see if anyone had heard of this surgeon, and what his experience was. He called me personally the next day to tell me of his findings. Dr Pousti didn’t have to make those calls, but he did, and that meant the world to me. He doesn’t just care about me, but also about the man I love. My fiancé had his surgery and it was a success!

The day before my surgery my fiancé, and my mother came with me to Dr Pousti’s office in La Mesa ca. He did all his markings of what was going to remove, where he would cut and where he would lipo. He marked my breast so I would have my best results.

We stayed at my aunt’s house ,which was close to the surgery center, and is where I stayed for the first week after surgery. My mom was my nurse for the first week! I can’t thank her enough for helping me. I stayed at my aunts because Dr. Pousti wanted me to stay close by so he could check on me post surgery.

The day finally arrived, and we arrived at the surgery center. Dr Pousti uses the same surgery center, with the same anesthesiologist and the same nurses and assistants. I was so scared and everyone calmed me and made me feel comfortable and so special. They were very professional, and they had a way of making you feel like you were their only patient! Dr Pousti came in and checked his marking and did some minor adjustments,and then they took me back to the operating room. I woke up 8 hours later 6 hour surgery 2 hours of recovery, and I felt like I just got there.

The feeling I had was the feeling of tightness! I’m not going to lie week 1 was the hardest week but it was worth it! He installs a pain pump that numbs the incision area. I had 4 drains 2 from my breast and 2 from my pelvic area. They sent me home the same day of surgery. I really don’t remember too much as I was still really groggy.

I stayed at my aunts house and slept in a recliner for the first week. Dr Pousti and his wife  were so kind to check on me the first night after surgery! They even brought me flowers! Never have I heard of a Dr. doing this before. The compassion and love he has for his patients is very apparent! He has always made me feel like I was his only patient, and his # 1 priority, even though I know he has many more patients.

The nurse or office staff called me everyday to check on me! Everyday was easier than the day before. I got around with my trusty walker, my BFF after surgery!

Dr Pousti told me that after surgery you go through an emotional state, but what found was not what I expected at all! I was expecting tears of pain and thought of regret, but that isn’t what I had at all! I never once thought why did I do this? The emotions I felt were eye opening to my life! The tears I shed were tears of love and joy and how lucky I am to have parents who took care of me for 6 weeks, a fiancé who supported me, no matter what I wanted to do, and my daughters, who stood by my side the whole time. Then the flowers, the cards, and the text messages came from friends, and clients thinking about me. The love I felt was overwhelming! Every tear I shed, were tears of joy of my life, my new body, and my new life to come!

This whole experience was the best thing I could have ever done! The most important thing is I truly feel like I was led to Dr. Pousti, and the results I got are amazing! He is a true artist of the body! He knows what will look the best and what is needed and not needed. He doesn’t just make you feel like he’s just your surgeon, but your friend, with your best interests in mind! The surgery is going to change my life for the better, and can’t thank him enough!

As I reflect on the end of the year and facing a new 2013, I think back on the good, the bad and the ugly of years gone by – and for the last two years, the top of my “good” list- has been my decision to FINALLY get my breasts altered with Dr. Pousti.  Having small boobs and a bigger frame has always been a source of insecurity for me growing up and through adulthood as well- although I never opted out of going to the pool or wear a sports bra at a gym, I was always self conscious of my chest and it made me fell less of a woman- I know its awful to admit, and we should be confident who we are in other areas other than looks, but I’m just telling the truth as far as how I personally felt. – making the decision to go was a tough one, all my friends insisted that I didn’t need to “get my boobs done” and that “i’m not that kinda girl who gets fake boobs”  but  at the end of the day, I realized that I cant live my life based on other peoples opinions and unwarranted 2 cents –  I made the appt. with Dr. Pousti and was a little nervous for our first encounter- am I really doing this?  My nerves were immediately dismissed once I met Dr. Pousti. He was so kind, professional, patient and helpful.  He wasn’t pushy and gave honest answers to my millions of questions that I had.  The staff there is amazing too- everyone is so nice and makes you feel as comfortable as possible- especially since most patients are there discussing their big big insecurities…(shout out to Cindy! I love her!) – Anyway, my main concern was that I wanted my new pair to look NATURAL- but I didn’t want small boobs, I wanted to fill out swimsuits well – just something that matched my 5’8″ 150lb frame- 2 years later, I’m STILL enamored with my results.  I went from a 34B to a 34D – Not only do they look natural like I had asked, but they feel and maneuver like real boobs too! I still get complements about how great they look by my friends who know they are fake, as well as others who have no idea- (a bit creepy, but hey! I admit! I love it!)  My decision to get the surgery was the best decision I made in 2011- and in a way boosted my confidence to get a new job in 2012- Shopping is now fun, I don’t dread trying on bras or swimsuits and all my clothes look 10x sexier. I’m thoroughly pleased and would recommend anyone to take the step with Dr. Pousti.

Thanks!

I am a 28 year old mother of two that has been contemplating breast augmentation for the past 10 years but recently got serious about it in the fall of 2012.  While researching online, I came across Dr. Tom Pousti.  His website was very educational, included pictures, testimonials and other resources.  He is a board certified surgeon with excellent reviews and practices in my hometown of San Diego so I scheduled my consultation right away.

As soon as I met Dr. Pousti, I knew I found the perfect doc.  He is a gifted surgeon with a kind heart and a fun, friendly personality.  The staff is very caring and supportive, the thought of surgery is very scary for me but everyone made me feel so comfortable right away.  Dr. Pousti was very informative; he addressed all of my questions and concerns, I even got to speak with other patients and see their results in person.

I gave Dr. Pousti a very general idea of what I wanted and with his credentials, reviews and experience I trusted he would make the right choices regarding this procedure, and that he did.  I am now 7 weeks post op and I look and feel great.  My breasts are now proportionate to my body and I feel so much more comfortable and confident in my own skin.  I am so happy that I was bold enough to go through with it and very thankful to have found Dr. Pousti.

This was my first plastic surgery experience and I had no idea what to
expect going in except hopefully bigger boobs. I was referred to Dr. Pousti
by a friend of friend who recently got Breast Augmentation through him.

Its been two weeks since my surgery and I am Very Happy not only with the
results but with my overall experience. The staff at Dr. Pousti’s office
are so nice and helpful. They have made me feel so comfortable since day 1
at my first consultation and have been consistent throughout. Not only are
they nice but they are also very informative! Any questions you have, they
are there to help 🙂

On the day of surgery I was really nervous and Dr. Pousti and his nurses
did everything they could to comfort me. I feel horrible for not
remembering the nurse’s name that went  into surgery with me but she was
Fantastic! Super funny and she made my husband and I laugh and feel really
comfortable.  Dr. Pousti is great at what he does, my husband and I felt so
comfortable with him and his team. I know I used the word”Comfortable” a
lot but to me that is so important when you are going into surgery.

Lastly, the results! I am VERY HAPPY with my results as well (which is also
very important) I got 457 cc Silicone implants and its only been two weeks
and they feel so natural. My first day back at work all the girls in the
office wanted Dr. Pousti’s info! Lol

Dr. Pousti is a great Doctor and his team is Awesome, I am so happy I went
through them for my surgery 🙂

To anyone considering breast augmentation or revision,

After realizing one of my large saline implants had ruptured and deflated I was frantic and anxious.  The thought of replacing my implants had crossed my mind before this unexpected deflation, but now I knew I had to make a decision fast. I had actually looked at Dr. Pousti’s website before this had happened and was very impressed with what I saw. I read all the wonderful reviews from past patients and knew this was the doctor to see.  So, as soon as I noticed my deflation I called his office to see if I could get an appointment the following day.  The staff was wonderful and understanding of my situation, they made sure I had an appointment the following day.  As soon as I met Dr. Pousti I felt at ease with my situation.  Not only is he very professional, but also very personable.  He was very thorough in asking me how I wanted my breasts to look and feel like.  My old DD saline implants were very large (770 cc), heavy, hard, and sat high on top of my chest. I told Dr. Pousti I wanted a very very natural look, a natural slope with no big bumps high on my chest.  I wanted a smaller implant that would look classy and to keep people guessing if I had actually had breast implants at all.  As an avid running a smaller breast size would also fit into my active lifestyle. While in the office I was shown photo albums to get an idea of the look I wanted. I also met several post op patients who were all extremely happy with their results and experience with Dr. Pousti.  After my consultation I knew Dr. Pousti was the Plastic Surgeon for me. The most amazing part of this whole experience is that Dr. Pousti and his staff were able to

scheduled my surgery for the very next day.  When I arrived at the surgery center the next day Dr. Pousti again went over my goals, placement of where I wanted the implants to sit on my chest and a size that would suit my body. I knew I wanted large C/ small D silicone implants and I felt totally confident he would create this natural look for me.  I have to say I had no complications, zero pain ( I did not even take prescription pain meds), and was back to my normal lifestyle the next day.  Dr. Pousti himself even called me over the weekend to see how I was doing. His wonderful staff called me every day for a week to make sure I was doing okay and to see if I had any questions. Even a nurse from the surgery center called to see how I was doing. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Pousti and his staff.

As a Registered Nurse I understand how important it is to receive superior care and this is what I experienced from Dr. Pousti and his staff.  I now have 445 cc silicone 34 D natural looking breasts.  If I ever decide I need or want another surgical procedure, Dr. Pousti is the only one I will see. I highly recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone wanting to change his or her appearance for the better.

Sincerely Grateful,

SG, Registered Nurse

I never imagined how much I could love my own breasts! After having two daughters both under 3 and actively playing soccer you can imagine the incredible damage that took on my body and breasts. It all started when my second daughter was 4 months old and I put myself on a strict diet and workout plan to get to the body size and fit I always wanted. During the first month of my routine my younger sister announced she was getting a breast augmentation by none other than the wonderful Dr. Pousti. After seeing my sisters ridiculously quick recovery for someone with no pain tolerance, I had to meet this now to me famous Dr. So I went to a follow up appointment with her. I loved how caring and personable everyone in the office was and how comfortable they made you feel. I couldn’t wait to set up my own consultation myself once I reached my body goals just a few months later. From May to Nov. Now it was my turn! I set my consultation date and within one week I was scheduled for surgery the following week. I figured if I was going to do it, it better be ASAP! Right before surgery I had a little bit of background with what to expect since both my mom and sister both had breast augmentations, specifically my sister since it was by the same Dr. But Dr. Pousti and his staff couldn’t have prepared me more! Everything was exactly planned and coordinated day of surgery as explained in per surgery appointment. There was nothing to worry about! Everyone at the surgery center was amazing too! Before I knew it I was in recovery being pampered. I got home had amazing help but Dr. Pousti himself called the first day to check on my progress himself along with his wonderful girls in the office everyday after until my next appointments for two weeks straight each day! Since then I am two weeks out and never felt better. I am still the type A go go go mom dying to get back to working out and on the soccer field but just more confident and happy with how I look and feel doing just plain old everyday things. I can’t wait to see how I am 6 weeks from now! I couldn’t imagine not have doing it at this point and wonder why I didn’t do it sooner! There is no other Dr for this kind of job but Dr. Pousti!!!!!!!!


Testimonial:

When I first decided that I wanted to get implants, I researched the numerous doctors in Southern California. One of my friends told me about Dr. Pousti and how happy she was with her surgery. I went in to get more information and to see what Dr. Pousti recommended. After doing research for pictures, I found some that I really liked and had taken them in. Dr. Pousti agreed that the pictures could easily be doable for my shape and size. The morning of my surgery, I was really nervous. I had walked into the operating room and was instantly calmed by the nurses and Dr. Pousti. When I woke up in the recovery room, I was tired and a little sore, until it was time to get dressed to leave, then I realized how much pain I was in. That night was hard, I was tired, not used to having to sit up to sleep, and really sore. Taking the pain medication helped and I was able to get some rest. After the first 5 days, I was able to stop taking the pain meds and was able to take tylenol, and two weeks after, I was able to stop taking medication all together. The first month after, I was getting excited about my new boobs. My ex-husband, did not care for them (which is why he is my ex). But my now husband loves them! Now it is almost 3 years later, and I feel so confident about myself. I have friends that compliment me on how nice they look so natural. For getting silicone implants, I was a little worried, but I wanted the most natural look and feeling. I have had people who did not believe me that they were implants. Thank you do much Dr. Pousti and staff for the kindness you have shown me throughout the process. Dr. Pousti, you are the best and I will recommend anyone to see you for any type of plastic surgery!


Testimonial:

I had a friend in the Navy who also enjoyed her experience with Dr.Pousti. I came to him and he was the perfect doctor to trust. He exceeded all my expectations as far as surgery and comfort. I would go back to him if I felt any thing else on my body needed work and I would suggest him before any one else! Dr. Pousti is the best doctor to go to for cosmetic surgery. He was very reasonable with pricing. He answered all of my questions and concerns during consultation and reviewed his background to reassure me of his amazing experience. He and his staff made sure I was comfortable and asked me what I had envisioned as far as nipple reduction. Every need was met. Surgery was quick about 20 minutes and recovery was about a week. (I slept through most of it) If I ever wanted to change anything else on my body I would go back to Dr. Pousti and would recommend him to everyone.

The outcome was that my nipples look proportioned and symmetrical. I have breast fed two babies in the past and it doesn’t look anything like it.

I feel like this surgery has changed my personal insecurities.

I wish I had known how well it would turn out beforehand, I might have asked him do a breast lift too!


Testimonial:

This was my first plastic surgery experience and I had no idea what to
expect going in except hopefully bigger boobs. I was referred to Dr. Pousti
by a friend of a friend who recently got Breast Augmentation through him.

Its been two weeks since my surgery and I am Very Happy not only with the
results but with my overall experience. The staff at Dr. Pousti’s office
are so nice and helpful. They have made me feel so comfortable since day 1
at my first consultation and have been consistent throughout. Not only are
they nice but they are also very informative! Any questions you have, they
are there to help 🙂

On the day of surgery I was really nervous and Dr. Pousti and his nurses
did everything they could to comfort me. I feel horrible for not
remembering the nurse’s name that went into surgery with me but she was
Fantastic! Super funny and she made my husband and I laugh and feel really
comfortable.  Dr. Pousti is great at what he does, my husband and I felt so
comfortable with him and his team. I know I used the word “Comfortable” a
lot but to me that is so important when you are going into surgery.

Lastly, the results! I am VERY HAPPY with my results as well (which is also
very important) I got 457 cc Silicone implants and its only been two weeks
and they feel so natural. My first day back at work all the girls in the
office wanted Dr. Pousti’s info! Lol

Dr. Pousti is a great Doctor and his team is Awesome, I am so happy I went
through them for my surgery 🙂

Thanks!


Testimonial:

I had small uneven breasts all my life. After having 3 kids they became even smaller (AA). I couldn’t fill even the smallest size A bras in any store. It made me feel so abnormal and I hated looking at myself in the mirror even though my husband was completely satisfied with me. I thought about Breast Augmentation for years but I was always afraid of the risks and it looking too fake on my petite sized body. I didn’t want huge dome shaped breasts to flaunt to the world. I wanted full breasts that looked nice and natural in the nude but not obvious with normal clothes on that would raise questions at the next PTA meeting.

I interviewed several doctors in La Jolla because my friends had referred them, but to be honest, I wasn’t pleased with their photos, and these doctors didn’t take the time to ask what I really wanted. THANKFULLY, I came across Dr. Pousti’s website. He had TONS of before/after photos of all the work he did all online. This proved to me that he was really experienced esp with women with petite bodies. During my consultation, I found him and the staff to be very friendly and caring. I particularly appreciated the way he allowed me to talk to any of his patients that were there at the time, I was able to ask them ANYthing! That really says a lot about Dr. Pousti, he has nothing to hide.

We discussed the breast size and look I wanted, we went over sample photos right before surgery. I wanted silicone implants, to be a small C with some fullness on top but gradual sloping. The procedure didn’t take long at all, I was out of the surgery center in 3 hours. The first few days of recovery were pretty painful but manageable with the medications. My husband was a huge help esp with all our kids, one being only 15 months old. When I saw the results during my follow up visit, I was extremely PLEASED. Dr. Pousti achieved my goals to a T. I have no idea how he did it! I love how I fit into my clothes and the fact that no one can tell I had a breast augmentation. But underneath, they’re VERY nice, even, and full and look awesome in a bikini and lingerie. I used to slouch a lot being embarassed about my flat chest, but now I have better posture with all the confidence I’ve gained. I highly recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone interested in a breast augmentation, he is a true ARTIST!!!


Testimonial:
Ever since high school I have always been unhappy with the way I looked. As time went on, I began considering getting a \”boob job\” but then life just got busy. Over the next 10 years after high school I got married and had 2 kids. Well, after my 2nd pregnancy I was at my lowest point of basically hating how I looked. I finally began looking for Drs in my area and after a few searches I found Dr Pousti. I made my consult and I knew he was the one. His staff was awesome and he was great at answering all my questions. I ended up calling back a few weeks later to schedule my surgery. I am now 2 weeks post op and I could not be happier. The week before surgery Dr P called me himself to check on me and see if I had last minute questions as well as his staff called the day before. The day of surgery it was hard to be nervous because all the staff at the surgery center made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Since the surgery his staff has called every day to check on me and see if I have had any questions. All in all I had to best experience and I would tell anyone he is the Dr to go to. All my appointments have been great. Him and his staff are very professional and caring. Oh and I am extremely happy with my results. Dr. Pousti gave me exactly what I wanted and I am finally comfortable with my body! Thank you!


Testimonial:
Oh Boy, Well I guess this really first started when I was younger and always had a little extra fat in my belly. I was always very uncomfortable with it and exercise didn’t seem to help. Well once into adult hood and my first baby the extra fat was also tons of stretch marks. After the birth of my first daughter in 2001 I didn’t take very good care of myself and gained an excessive amount of weight almost reaching 200 pounds by 2006. It was then that I realized I needed to do something if I ever wanted to feel better for myself so I started working out and eating better and made a complete life change. I lost 70 pounds and even ended up having another baby in 2009 and kept all the weight off. Unfortunately I was left with tons of excess skin on my stomach and after nursing my baby for 16 months my breast were very saggy and sad. I always wanted to get the skin removed and get my breast back but never really thought to hard about it until a girlfriend of mine had a “Mommy Makeover” after having twins. I then started looking into and realized this was definitely something I wanted to do. I met with Dr. Pousti and was very pleased with everyone in the office. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Pousti from the moment I met him and I cannot wait to get my procedure done, it’s in 2 days and I couldn’t be more excited.


Testimonial:
I chose him because he is the best Doctor in San Diego based on quality, care, and experience. I used to work in a medical spa in La Jolla where I had the opportunity many times to choose one of the doctors we worked with there but I still didn’t feel sure about my choice until I met Dr. Pousti. I made my consultation appointment and on the same day decided to come back and book my Breast Augmentation surgery. I had my surgery the week after that consultation on a Wednesday. I was so impressed by Dr. Pousti ability to make me feel comfortable about the procedure. His staff were experienced, beautiful and provided all the material I needed to feel confident about my new breasts. Many of the photos of past clients and even live testimonials helped me with my decision. I couldn’t wait to have my breasts done. After my surgery I went back for a follow up appointment and was more the satisfied with the result. I felt as if all the staff including Dr. Pousti were as family and made me feel supported and comfortable every step of the way. Now I am 2 weeks after surgery, not even fully healed and I have relieved so many compliments from friends and family. I definitely would recommend Dr. Pousti for Breast Augmentation for anyone interested in this particular procedure. I feel so much more confident and sexy! Thank you Dr. Pousti!


Testimonial:

I had a BL/BA with Dr. Pousti on Sept.7, 2011. I had always been unhappy with my breasts, especially after breastfeeding. I thought about having this procedure for about 8 years, but was always scared of the idea. The girls in the office made me feel so comfortable I booked my surgery that day. My skin tends to scar very red, so i am having a scar revision as well relifting. Overall, I had a wonderful experience with the first surgery. Dr. P and his office staff are more than caring and attentive. Dr. Pousti really listens to what you want. He is highly skilled in his profession! I already love my new breasts! So I know they are just going to get better! I am excited for my revision surgery, I know he is going to make them look amazing!

Updated on 25 Sep 2012: I had surgery this morning and as always the nurses were wonderful, as well as Dr. Pousti. I was a little nervous this time around, but the nurses made me feel so relaxed and at ease. The nurses make sure your every need is met. Again, just like the first time, I had a very pleasant experience and the surgery center Dr. Pousti is such an amazing doctor! He really listened to what goals and \”look\” I wanted to achieve. I have no doubt that he did everything in his power to give me everything I asked for. I haven\’t seen them yet as I am bandaged up, but I am already happy with the upgraded size! Dr. Pousti is a incredibly AWESOME doctor! He is talented in creating beautiful breast! I would recommend him over and over again!!


Testimonial:

I am a board certified M.D. and surgeon and I just had my consultation with Dr. Tom Pousti for breast augmentation. I have considered the surgery for several years, but my family and profession always took precedence. Now that I am “stable” (i.e. not planning more pregnancies and no longer in training), I am ready to proceed. While their are many upsides to being a physician and having a surgical procedure done, the downside is my fear is exaggerated as I know every single possible risk or complication!
Updated on 9 Nov 2012:
I am a physician who would like to preserve my privacy, but the greatest thank you I can give Dr. Tom Pousti is to write this review.

I would STRONGLY recommend any patient considering breast augmentation to schedule a consult with Dr. Pousti.
He is an exceptional surgeon, an ethical physician, passionate about his profession and humble about his phenomenal work.
After much research and waiting, it was due to this combination of qualities that I chose Dr. Pousti as my plastic surgeon.
AND I have no financial or professional gain by telling you this info – my relationship with Dr. P is as a patient only!

Also I want to thank all you lovely ladies who shared your story on Real Self.
You are so sweet and supportive, I couldn’t imagine going through this without you.
I only told my husband and friend who helped take care of me after the surgery.

So here are my numbers:
I am 38 years old, I have two children who I breast fed both for 8 months.
I am 5’7″ and weigh 120 pounds.
Dr. Pousti placed 338cc Naturalle Silicone, under the muscle, periareolar both sides (Keller Funnel Method).
Dr. Pousti asks for you to bring photos of what you like and dislike.
I will upload my collage that I gave him the day of my surgery.

I am at post-op week two and couldn’t be happier.

PRE-OPERATIVELY:

I worked out as usual (for me 4 -5 days/week; mostly aerobic stuff with some weights)

I did take the Make Me Heal Plastic surgery suppliments 2 weeks before the surgery: $60 on Amazon
http://www.amazon.com/Plastic-Surgery-Supplements-Vitamins-Formulas/dp/B0047Q3TQU

And also took Arnica Montana 30x 250 tablets: I took 4 pills four times a day 1 week before surgery and am still using: $8 on Amazon
http://www.amazon.com/Arnica-Montana-30x-250-Tablets/dp/B00020HTTS

I read and re-read Dr. Pousti’s website:
About the Doctor
Breast Augmentation : ALL of the links (I esp liked the pre/post-op/choosing your size links)
FOLLOW my Journey from Start to Finish (a link on the left side of his webpage) – I really liked this one

And of course his Before and After Photos

My husband took the kids for 2 days after my surgery (done on a Friday and kids and hubby were back on Sunday) and my friend took care of me while the family was away.

I took off 9 days total and feel great. I have a busy schedule (see about 35-40 patients/day and perform surgeries 1-2 times a week).

I started working out again at POD(post op day)#11, did the reclined bike and did a Zumba class POD#12!

I am still wearing my surgical bra – boo hoo! But will do as instructed (will need to wear for 4 weeks total) to keep them to continue to drop.

Sorry I am back to work and super busy but will try to give you more info/photos ASAP!

Good luck to everyone and again Thanks!

I found him on the internet. His website, yelp, realself, vitals, and healthgrades I can honestly say as a physician AND patient, Dr. Tom Pousti has won me over. I had my consult yesterday and was more than pleased with the experience. First he is double board certified in surgery and plastics. He has had 15 years experience with cosmetic surgery. He has worked with his scrub nurse and anesthesiologist for over 10 years in the same hospital (this is key – decreasing variables has been shown to increase success rate). He is married with 5 children (again the decrease of variable factors – i.e. his social life is stable). His staff is exceptional as well. Vanessa was very knowledgeable and friendly as well. Not only did she address my concerns about the risks of the procedure, she conveyed my message to Dr. Pousti regarding my husband’s hesitancy. I have been with my husband for almost 20 years and he prefers I do not have surgery. Dr. Pousti stated he has had many patients with similar spousal concerns and recommended he meet with my husband and I before making any decisions. This was a huge relief for me because it demonstrated Dr. Pousti and his staff understand my husband’s concerns and ultimately realize I need my spouse’s support. All I can say is I am more than excited to be seeing Dr. Pousti again in the near future.

As soon as I met with Dr. Pousti, I knew I had found the doctor to perform my breast augmentation. Not only is Dr. Pousti amazing, but his staff is top notch as well. All of my nervousness went away after my consultation with him, and I booked my surgery that same day! I was looking for a doctor who not only had the best credentials, but someone who made me feel at ease. I had been contemplating surgery for about 2 years, but wanted to be sure about moving forward with it, and wanted to find the right doctor. I was so impressed with Dr. Pousti and his staff each and every time I spoke or met with them. From the person who makes the appointments, to the surgery nurse, to Dr. Pousti — everyone – wonderful people! My surgery was 6 months ago, and I love the results. I am 48 yrs. old, and went from a saggy C cup to a DD, and now I feel so much more confident about the way I look and how my clothes fit. I had no problems with the surgery or recovery. Dr. Pousti is one of a kind and an exceptional human being and doctor. Very caring and dedicated to his work and to his patients. I was there for a follow up visit the week of my birthday, and Dr. Pousti and his staff gave me a beautiful vase full of flowers. So very nice. If you are looking for an excellent doctor who will give you excellent results, look no further. Dr. Pousti is the best.


Testimonial:

To say that Dr. Tom Pousti is an incredibly gifted surgeon would be an understatement.  The compassion and professionalism he shows is evident everywhere in his practice; from his professionalism and knowledge of the specifics of my case, to his staff’s conscientious care of me.  He has a kind, gentle and patient manner that helped me feel relaxed and comfortable.  I felt, without hesitation, that I was receiving the very best care, and that he understood all of my individual challenges as well as making sure I understood what to expect.  He listened to me that I wanted to achieve a natural looking outcome.  Not only did he strive to get the results I wanted, but the results were better than I had ever envisioned.  His excellent care is extended to even his post-surgical care.  I received frequent phone calls from his office to check on my well-being and progress, even between office check-ups.  He gave me a bouquet of flowers at my first post-operative check-up; he is such a nice, caring, thoughtful man.  He went the extra mile to make sure my experience and outcome were better than what I expected.  My personal results are so natural looking and beautiful that no one would know unless I told them; which is exactly what I wanted!  I highly recommend Dr. Pousti, he is THE BEST.  I wouldn’t go to anyone else.


Testimonial:

The results from my surgery from Jan 31, 2012 were really good, except I had a little asymmetry. My right breast had dropped and my left never did. I decided to schedule a revision to correct the imperfection with an internal bra. My husband and I thought about it and decided that I would do an implant exchange at the same time. I was limited with how big I could go at my first surgery due to the fact that I was having a lift, and with the amount of sutures that I would put too much pressure on them if I went too big. So at the time, I let Dr, Pousti be the judge and he filled me as large as was possibly safe. I had beautiful shape and gorgeous nipple placement.
My experience – once again – at Dr. Pousti’s office has been nothing short of a visit to the family Doctor. Dr. Pousti really understands when you tell him what you want. He actually listens, he cares, he hears what you are saying instead of just nodding just to get you out of there and go on to the next patient.
I brought in a LOT of photos and discussed what size, look and placement I wanted. I always leave Dr. Pousti with an extreme amount of confidence that I have made the right choice. He is an amazing Doctor.
Surgery went fantastic…I, again, left the cc’s up to Dr. Pousti – he had the photos of what I wanted to look like. I know that the # of cc’s can look different from one girl to the next, so I was not dead set on anything.
I had an internal bra in the right breast to bring it up to the same level as the left breast, then the implant exchange.
When I woke up in the recovery, I just wanted to see the # that he filled me to –
1130 cc
YEAH
So, recovery is going well. I am sore – but not too bad. The internal stitches are tender and it is hard to remember to keep my elbow down. If I move the wrong way, my body does remind me. Can’t wait until my appointment next week for the unveiling so I can see the results.


Testimonial:

At age 25 I decided to have breast augmentation and had sub muscular implants put in.  I remember my reasoning being that I needed to be better proportioned.  I felt I had a large behind and even though I had fairly decent sized breasts of my own I wanted them bigger to counter balance my behind.  About twelve and a half years later, while pregnant one of my implants ruptured.  There wasn’t a specific incident.  I believe it was just the added weight and pressure, plus they had reached what I guess is considered shelf life.  It was a scary experience.  I wasn’t sure what had happened and I had mild pain shooting down my stomach.  It of course made me concerned about my baby.  After realizing what had happened I called Dr. Pousti’s office.  They were very kind and helpful and explained there shouldn’t be an issue and I could have something done after I gave birth.  I’m sure glad they were saline!  Well anyway, I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl and that became one of my many concerns in having something done.  I love her and I didn’t want anything bad to happen to me.  I didn’t want to have a procedure of any kind done.  I hoped the other would just rupture and I wouldn’t do anything about it.  I didn’t want to have to make a decision to have them removed or replaced.  I was concerned about recovery and how I would handle my baby.  I had many bills still from having my daughter and I didn’t want to take on any additional debt.  Not to mention, I remembered the initial procedure as being extremely painful.  I didn’t want to go through that again.

I met with Dr. Pousti a little after a year later.  He and his staff were very comforting and helpful.  We discussed my options of having them removed and replaced or just removed.  Needless to say, I was undecided and continued to put it off.  Again, I just hoped the other one would rupture.  Finally, after two years of being lopsided I decided to have a procedure.  It was a tough decision as to what to do.  I was contemplating having them removed, but was afraid I wouldn’t be happy with my appearance.  I didn’t want to spend any money at all though, so of course the less expensive route was alluring.  That coupled with the fact that I didn’t want to be faced with this dilemma again were the defining reasons in why I ultimately decided to have them removed.

I just had my procedure done and so far I am happy with my results.  There is a sense of freedom in being just me.  Dr. Pousti and his staff were amazing.  I felt special.  I felt like they cared about me.  As nervous and anxious as I was about the whole thing prior, when I went into the operating room I felt comfortable and knew I was in good hands.  The procedure was quick and easy on me.  To my delight and surprise I have felt very little, if any pain.  Dr. Pousti of course told me that would be the case, but I doubted it some considering my memory of my initial recovery.  The office and Dr. Pousti have continued to be in touch with me and I appreciate that.  I should be fully recovered soon and I’m looking forward to it.  I’m looking forward to buying some new bras!  Probably going to have to buy some push ups!  Ha!  Good luck to those of you considering this procedure!


Testimonial:

Being a small chested woman isn’t one of the easiest things in life. Although it wasn’t something that completely overtook my life, every so often, I would feel terrible when I couldn’t get that cute dress because my chest didn’t fill it correctly. I would dream of getting implants one day but it was merely that, a dream.

However, one day, while shopping for my nursing bra a couple of weeks before having my baby, I could not find any store that carried my small size bra. Now, not only could I not fill in clothes, but also it made me feel as a failure as a mother. As silly as it might sound, I felt that not having the ability to fit in a nursing bra meant I wouldn’t be able to breastfeed, and in turn, be a bad mother. As I stood there crying in the store, it was my husband who felt so bad for me, that he told me he would get me implants if it would make me feel better.

Well, mommy-hood consumed my life for the next year but the idea never really left my mind and really resurfaced when a good friend got them done. My husband encouraged me to go ahead and begin researching. All he asked was that I go with a reputable doctor.

I looked at several doctors online and actually considered going with a doctor I was familiar with due to the fact that he is also known for taking out wisdom teeth. My husband didn’t really feel comfortable with that idea so he asked me to keep searching. This began my research into safety, which had both good and negative effects. On the positive note, it brought me to a reputable doctor, Dr. Pousti. On the negative side, it caused me to fear the procedure.

I told my husband I no longer wanted the surgery but he told me to go in for a consult just to check things out. He said it would help ease my fear. Going in was real fun, the staff was so friendly and Dr. Pousti was so nice. They answered all my questions and I had many… many questions. I was so excited. Knowing I would overthink it if I didn’t act soon, I scheduled my appointment as soon as possible.

Sure enough, a day later, as woke up and looked into my sons crib, I woke up feeling extremely anxious. What was I doing? I was going into a surgery, an elective surgery, and putting my body at risk. I began to feel that I was wrong in wanting something that had a chance of leaving my son without a mother. I was afraid I would not wake from surgery to see him grow up.

I will admit, I was still extremely anxious over the anesthesia going in, but kept as distracted as I could, again knowing I was in the best of hands. I left for surgery that day kissing my baby telling him I would see him in a few hours.

And thankfully, I woke up. No negative reactions, just a more confident mommy to go back and play with her baby.

2nd Testimonial:

I called Dr, Pousti’s office immediately and tried to cancel my appointment. The staff member was so kind with me and said she would cancel it if I wanted but asked me to do her a favor and come in and talk to Dr. Posuti one more time just in case he could clear up any questions for me. Though reluctant, I went in and not only Dr. Pousti, but also the girls all talked to me and tried to calm my nerves. Dr. Pousti took the time to sit me and answer the same questions and never once made me feel dumb for being so terrified. He was not pushy either and actually told me to think about it a little longer. Everyone was being so supportive, including my family that I felt I could do this. After some prayer time, right there in the office, with my grandma, I said, “lets do this!” knowing that God would give me courage and Dr. Pousti and his team would be the best to do the job. Dr. Pousti was so kind during the next week before the surgery. He even had the anesthesiologist call me and answer any questions I had. She was so kind. She called me about 5 times that weekend, her days off, trying to contact me to ease my nerves. Her kindness to do this made me know I was going to be with a team that really cared about their patients. Dr. Pousti also called me to check up on me and continue to encourage me to be brave. I know I must have been so annoying but he never lost his patience and kindness with me. The surgery center staff was also really nice. Every nurse was aware that I was nervous and did all they could to keep me distracted and calm. The scrub nurse was the sweetest, telling me she would hold my hand while I went under. Her and Dr. Pousti smiled at me as I went to sleep. I thank God so much for allowing me to wake up and I thank Him for sending me to the best possible, kindest, most compassionate and intelligent doctor and staff to help mommy feel more feminine and confident in her looks. I highly recommended Dr. Pousti! He held me hand through this whole thing ☺


Testimonial:

I had a life changing experience with Dr. P and his staff. They did such a great with me. I’m not even all the way through with my recovery and I already feel more confident and honestly like a new woman.

I had natural symmastia and after having my son it just seemed to worsen also my breast were two different sizes. I did not feel comfortable in my body and it was so stressful trying to find bras and clothes that fit me right.
Over the last year in a half I went and spoke to so many Dr’s in southern Cali and not one knew how to go about what I wanted fixed. They had either never done the procedure or had an odd way of going about fixing the symmastia.

He is a great person. He listens. He cares. He understands. He is respectful. Until a friend recommended Dr. Pousti. He knew right away what I wanted what I needed and the best way to do it. I remember coming home from my first office visit with him and I was so happy and excited that I finally found the right doctor and with out a doubt the best doctor for me. He did everything I wanted and more. Dr. P and his staff changed my life and I couldn’t thank them enough.


Testimonial:

This is my second breast augmentation but my first one by Doctor Pousti.  I got my first breast augmentation done approx 8 years ago and I didn’t do my research to find a good doctor and I paid for it greatly. I was completely dissatisfied with them and was more self conscious about the poorly done breast augmentation than I was without them.

I found Doctor Pousti through a friend of mine who had gotten her breast augmentation done by him. Her breasts looked awesome and I was so jealous that I hadn’t done the research for a good doctor like she had.

I looked up Doctor Pousti’s website and read the testimonials by other patients and also read other reviews about him. I looked at before and after pictures of other women who also had their previous breast augmentation surgeries re-done by Doctor Pousti and was even more pleased at the phenomenal job he had done fixing other so-called “doctor’s” augmentations.

I decided that I didn’t want to wait any longer. I immediately scheduled a consultation with Doctor Pousti and scheduled my new breast augmentation surgery shortly thereafter.

I couldn’t be more pleased with how my new breast augmentation looks! Everyone, including the staff at Doctor Pousti’s office to the nurses who cared for me at the surgery center, took phenomenal care of me. I have never come across a more personable and caring group of people.

I would recommend anyone and EVERYONE to Doctor Pousti. He and his staff are a wonderful, caring, and knowledgeable team together.  My new breasts look PHENOMENAL and I now have the self confidence that I have the beautiful breasts that I’ve always wanted.

Thank you Doctor Pousti!!

I am 3 days out from my surgery with Dr. Pousti, and it has been an awesome experience! From the moment I stepped into his office as a new patient I had the warmest reception from the staff and everyone there was more than helpful. The Dr. was extremely detailed in his explanation of the procedure and recovery time, but I never knew that I would feel this good after. I only needed to take one prescription pain pill after and have just been taking ibuprofen since. In the surgery center I was catered to like a princess, he had wonderful staff (and I know this because I’ve been a nurse for more than 10 years), and everyone was very particular about making sure they checked and double checked everything before they started. Dr. Pousti even held my hand as I was given my “milk of amnesia” before they started the procedure, just one more thing making me feel even more comfortable about the surgery. I have nothing but praise for the results thus far, I almost cried when they took off the surgical bra today and I saw how beautiful my breasts look even they are a bit swollen and sore. The incision lines are so neat and clean, no buckling of the skin or unevenness (he did a perfect subcuticular stitch on both sides), and to my pleasant surprise I still have full sensation in both nipples which was very important to me. Word of advise to those after surgery, use nail polish remover to take off your surgical pen markings, it works great! I could not more highly recommend Dr. Pousti for this procedure, and I would tell any of my friends or family to see him if they were looking to have the same procedure.

Dr. Pousti is as professional as they come. His work is second to none and he gives straight forward advice to prospective clients. For first timers, such as myself, I needed a considerate guide to help me navigate through my breast enhancement procedure. He laid out possible obstacles as well as expectations after surgery. I am proud to have him as my doctor and I have referred him to my closest friends. I love my new additions and I will definitely return if I need any more work.


Testimonial:
Everything about my experience with Dr. Pousti has exceeded my expectations. I was extremely nervous during my first consultation, and I was immediately put at ease by the entire staff as well as the doctor. We discussed my expectations and desired results as well as the specifics of the procedure. His confidence in his knowledge showed early on. I was told to provide before/after photos prior to my appointment. Based on the photos and our conversation, we quickly had the decisions made of silicone gel implant, going thru the nipple and under the muscle. I tried on various sizes of implant, settling on 425cc for a rough estimate. I was able to see one of his patients 3 days post op during that consultation and was impressed by not only his work but the wonderful testimonial that patient had.
During my pre op appointment another patient was willing to show her progress, and she was 3months post op. Seeing the two patients, in various stages of healing time gave me a good indication on what my process would be like. On the day of the surgery, the team at the surgical center was so professional, pleasant and knowledgeable. I was nervous and everyone put me at ease and made me feel comfortable. The doctor and I discussed my desired results, and since I had very little to work with (I was a 32 B) he explained he would do everything he could to get me my desired size (425 cc) to achieve roughly a full C, small D. Happily, he was able to do more, which ended up giving me 457cc silicone gel implant.

I can’t say enough about how thorough and thoughtful his entire staff has been. I received a phone call every day for 2 weeks after surgery, and every question or concern was addressed. I had my follow up appointment 4 days after surgery and was beyond impressed with the minimal swelling and ZERO bruising I had! I had another follow up appointment the next week and saw even more improvement on reduced swelling and healing. I was shown massage techniques to start helping the implant to settle into the pocket. Now, 3 weeks after surgery I finally had the white steri-strip bandages removed from the incisions and I cannot begin to tell you what a relief it was to see how minimal my scar is! The healing process has already begun and I know my results will continue to improve. Anyone who is considering breast augmentation needs to visit Dr. Pousti. He is sincere and genuine, truly wants the best outcome for his patients and it shows in his work!

Pros: Knowledgeable, professional and confident. Truly caring staff. Great follow through.

Cons: the only downside I have experienced is I have a weak stomach for anesthesia and was vomiting my first 24hrs. However, the staff at the office was helpful in giving us tips to help subside my nausea.

So far, I can already tell I have more confidence. I feel my body is the way it should have been, much more proportionate and I can’t wait for bikini season!

Thank you Dr Pousti for everything you have done to add to my life!

Hands down Dr. Pousti is amazing. Between Dr. Pousti and his girls I have never felt more comfortable, educated, and so sure of something. I had had a few bad experiences at consultations with other surgeons that belittled me and made me feel as if it was a waste of my time being there! I was nervous that it would have been the same but gave it a try anyways. I couldn’t have had a warmer and more inviting welcome. Walking through that door has changed my life in many aspects. I have acquired not just a doctor but a new family. Post op I got phone calls everyday to make sure I was doing well or had any questions at all. Dr. Pousti even takes time out of his crazy schedule to call you personally to check on you. He is not only an amazing doctor he is a caring person. I can not wait for my second surgery to get my implants, knowing how well I will be taken care of there won’t be a worry in my mind. Thank you Dr. Pousti and staff for being awesome!

I have finished step one of the two surgeries I will be having. First was a breast lift with a reduction I was carrying huge 34 DD which couldn’t have been any more uncomfortable. Dr. Pousti and I chose to do two surgeries instead of combined into one, leaving less risk factors out and just making a smarter decision in my case. As I heal from my first surgery I am already so much more comfortable in my body which I can’t say I ever have been before.

Things about Dr. Pousti that I love!!!

When I meet Dr. Pousti and his amazing staff, I knew immediately that I had found the right surgeon.   All of the women that work in his practice are king, caring, professional and supportive.

At my initial consultation, I was surprised at comfortable and at ease I felt.   Daisy helped me make great decision; the photographs helped me to see what my breasts would look like after they were lifted.  They actually look better than any of the photos I was shown.   They are perky know and look attractive as compared to when I went in and they were nearly to my waist!

I know that people travel come from all over to see Dr. Pousti and they are right.   I meet a couple from Oklahoma yesterday and she had just had her tummy tucked and her breast lifted.  She also looked amazing!!!!!!! I have never felt so relaxed and at ease.  WE share our looks and we both agree at how fabulous our new bodies have become.  She and I have weighed over 200 pounds and now you can’t even see or imagine the changes Dr. Pousti has made for us.

I would without a doubt recommend Dr. Pousti and his team for all the plastic surgery.    He is the best Plastic surgeon I have ever met.   His consultations and advice are for my well-being.  He is cautious in his practice and he makes sure that all of his patience’s are well cared for.  He is cautious about the length of surgery and he puts my well-being before his own needs.

In December, he will be returning my breast to their original size and doing an extended Tummy Tuck for me.  I am more than confident that Dr. Pousti will do an amazing job.  His work is impeccable, his staff is amazing and the staff at Alvarado surgical suites is beyond compare.   I love Kelso!!!!!!

If you have any questions, I would be glad to talk to you.   Dr. Pousti is the most amazing Plastic Surgeon.  I have put my life in his hands and I feel fabulous!!!!!  I am only 12 days pre-op from my breast lift and I have very little discomfort.  Any discomfort that I have felt is because I don’t rest enough.  I love to garden and cook.   This has gotten any discomfort I have felt.

With sincere appreciation and thanks

I originally got saline implants back in May 06 in south carolina, within 3 weeks I had a nasty infection and after months of trying to save the implant it had to come out. There I am newly engaged, plan in a wedding and hoping I et my boob back in time..haha. well I did and minus a few more problems it stayed put until I had my last baby in July 2010 and I noticed I looked lopsided. Sure enough went to a Dr (now in FL) and my implant had an early deflation, go figure. Thankfully I purchases insurance so it was covered and I upgraded to silicone for a small price. 3 weeks later no infection but my incision opened up and had t get a new implant. After all that I was fine and I was enjoying them, until around 6 months later and I noticed a dark spot on the bottom lobe area. Went to my Dr and he was baffled and mentioned placing some kind of fake skin but wanted to speak to his colleagues, however by the time he got back to me I got another infection and was in the process of moving cross country so he told me to rush to San Diego and get it fixed. I arrived in San Diego mid august but it was too late, my breast had several holes through the skin and not much could be done. Went to the ER and the implant along with part of my lower breast was removed. I saw several doctors of all kind and everyone had a different treatment plan. Some were extreme and some not extreme enough considering my history. I finally met some friends and several of them referred me to Dr. Pousti. They all raved about him so I met with him and immediately felt like he was who I’ve been looking for and waiting for! Its been a year since my implant was removed and I just had the revision and re-implants done this past week. I am anxious and hopeful to see what amazing work he’s done. I was lopsided for a year and now I’m just hoping for my life back! Will keep our all updated 🙂

Its never easy to make a decision regarding permanently changing your physical appearance.  Especially these days when there are so many phony doctors out there.  The internet doesn’t ease that decision any.  Fake reviews, artificial photos, etc.  I read several reviews regarding Dr. Pousti.  My first thought?  This guy is too good to be true.  No way he’s really that good.  I was wrong.  I’ve always believed in natural beauty.  I don’t wear make-up.  I’ve never dyed my hair.  I rarely cut it.  The closest I’ve come to cosmetically altering my appearance was Lasik.  So, going from not wearing foundation to breast augmentation was a decision I did not take lightly.  While my husband’s deployed, I’m on a mission to lose the weight our son had graciously given me. 🙂  As his homecoming nears, I was thrilled that my waist line has shrunk, but discouraged that my breast line followed suit. So, after discussing it via Skype and emails, we decided to go for it.  I was so nervous that when Dr. Pousti called the night before, I asked if he’d allow me to bring my husband’s dog tags along to help put me at ease.  He approved without hesitation! As I started to fall asleep, both Dr. Pousti and Helen (nurse) held my hands (and my hubby’s dog tags).  When I woke, the first thing they did was return my dog tags.  They called every day for a while after my surgery.  And didn’t make me feel silly for calling them for every little thing that I noticed.  I never felt like I was asking a dumb question.  Or like I was being a bother with my questions.  Here I am, a month later.  My husband is due home soon, I could not be MORE pleased with my results, and would absolutely recommend Dr. Pousti and his amazing staff to anyone considering BA.

Testimonial:
Being a medical professional myself, I was very selective in choosing the right plastic surgeon for my breast lift.  After consulting with three different surgeons in the Orange County area, I chose Dr. Pousti because of his extensive experience with breast lifts and his confidence in his work.  He is very surgically skilled in addition to having great bed side manners.  Not only did he deliver what he promised by doing a fabulous job on my breasts but his staff also went the extra mile in showing courtesy, professionalism, and an overall concern for me throughout my preop and postop experience.   Dr. Pousti has enormous talent and uses his instinct as well as experience when suggesting what suits my body most.  My husband loves my new look and compliments my breasts all the time.  I have new confidence now and feel like a complete woman.
Thank you for everything

I had been considering a breast augmentation since I was 16. I had put itoff for several reasons, school, age, work etc. I was always frustrated not being able to wear low cut tops, wearing undershirts with low tops, bikinis not looking sexy, sewing low cut dress because of my lack of cleavage and breasts. I was always very self-conscious about my breasts. Finally early 2012 I decided I wanted to get them done before the end of year. I did tons of research; what kind of implant, incision, under the muscle over the muscle, etc. I met with a few other surgeons before I met with Dr. Pousti. I was referred to Dr. Pousti from my close friends who had a breast augmentation with him too. I decided to meet with Dr. Pousti because of the large amount of before and after pictures and how good the after pictures were in comparison to the before. I was stunned! I spent hours and hours researching him and looking at all the pictures. I finally scheduled my consultation for early May 2012 (now age 23). The moment I walked into his office, the staff made me feel welcome and comfortable. Everyone was very nice and genuine. I talked to one of the girls who asked what I wanted, how big, the look etc. They showed me an informative video and more before and after pictures before meeting Dr. Pousti for the first time. Finally 15-20 minutes later I got to meet the famous Dr. Pousti. I relaxed the moment he walked in. He was calm, kind, caring, and very professional. He took his time to answer all my questions whereas the other surgeons I met with were all in a rush to get to the next patient. I spent about 2 hours there for my first consultation and before it even ended I had made a decision…Dr. Pousti was the one! I scheduled my surgery for late July …I know it is an odd time of the year for surgery but I didn’t care, I wanted my new boobs. I went back in for a few more consultations; I brought pictures of what I wanted as required by Dr. Pousti. I explained I wanted a natural look and a size proportionate to my body type. I also explained to him I wanted cleavage which was something I lacked and was very important to me. I originally had in mind 500-550cc’s based on the implants I tried on at other surgeons’ office…Dr. Pousti doesn’t let his patients try on implants. He explained to me that they are not representative of what you will get… and boy was he right! He suggested I go bigger because of my wide shoulders, hips and height…I told him to do what he thinks will look good, he’s the professional. I trusted him 100% and I will never regret it! I went in for surgery on JuIy 19th and went home same day. The surgery staff was equally nice and welcoming. They helped me laugh and relax telling me how hot I was going to look in a few hours. After surgery Dr. Pousti and his staff called me every day to see how I was doing, I totally was not expecting this. They truly do go above and beyond. I was able to go back to work 6 days after surgery; I am a realtor so my work is very light. I am not even two months out and I am excited to see what my final results will be like, right now they look and feel amazing and I cannot imagine how much better they will look! I ended up getting 675 cc’s, saline, under the muscle; taking me from a small B to a full D and achieved the cleavage I longed for. Dr. Pousti was right about going bigger; it’s the perfect size for me and my body type. I am glad I trusted Dr. Pousti, he truly is the best! Thanks to his amazing job my confidence is a lot greater than before. I get tons of compliments on how good I look, but no one knows why. My breasts look super natural which is exactly what I wanted. I can wear things I never thought I could; from low cut tops to long form fitting gala dresses. I am ecstatic with my results and I know if ever need to go back (maybe after I have kids) I will definitely go to Dr. Pousti. A million thanks will never be enough to show how happy and grateful I am with my results. Thanks Dr. Pousti and staff, I wish you all a life time of successful surgeries and happy patients. The work was amazing and treatment wonderful. I am more than satisfied. XOXOHappy Pousti Patient since July 2012

Dr. Pousti,I have attached my thank you letter and also want to give you a personal thank you.

I’m not even sure there are words to describe how I feel. I wake up in the morning and for the first time in a long time I’m so happy with what I see and I owe that to you. I’m happy in my own skin and this wouldn’t be if it weren’t for you. You cared about my feelings and concerns and never looked at me like I was nuts (I was a little nuts) lol

Please continue to change lives it’s a different world with you in it.

Thank you with all my heart and God Bless

On August 7th 2012 Dr. Pousti performed on me a mommy makeover. It truly is the BEST decision I have ever made. I had been considering this procedure since my first son 19 years ago and all I have to say is why did I wait so long??

I decided to have a consultation with Dr. Pousti in May and I knew then that this is what I was going to do.  I explained to him exactly what I wanted and had no idea I was going to have such great results. I decided to have a lift only, being that I’m some what on the modest side and really just wanted some skin correction. Dr. Pousti also gave me some lipo around my hips and of course my beautiful tummy tuck. I’m so thrilled with my new body 🙂

Dr. Pousti , all of your staff and your staff at the Alvarado Surgery Center Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

Before visiting Dr. Pousti’s office, I consulted other surgeons but did not feel comfortable with them or their staff. Dr. Pousti is not only a great physician but is also very personable and has good energy about him. The same applies to all the nice ladies who work in his practice. After my breast augmentation, Margie was always there for me with any questions I had. It has been five years since I had my breast surgery and I am very happy with my results. Throughout the process, from the initial consultation to the after-care visits, the entire staff has always been patient, attentive, caring, knowledgeable, and friendly. The office is always clean and comfortable. After 5 years, I continue to have nothing but the most positive feelings about my “new” self. I constantly think about how wonderful Dr. Pousti and the rest of his staff are and thank everyone again! I would not hesitate to use Dr. Pousti again in the future and would recommend him highly to my very best friends and family.

My experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff was more then I could ever ask for. Since I have been waiting to do this surgery for awhile now, I was extremely impatient to schedule appointments and Dr.Pousti’s office was extremely flexible and really accomidated me. I love his personality and his sense of humor, it made going into sugery much less scary and the time passed much faster the day of my surgery.

I was contemplating breast augmentation surgery after having my two kids. I wanted fuller, nicer breast, with an extremely natural look. I was reffered to Dr. Pousti, and did a little research on him as well, I went in for a consultation and I knew he was the one. Dr. Pousti and his staff were great, answered all of my questions and really understood the look I wanted. After giving them pictures (what I liked, didn’t like, and the “IT” look”) and seeing other patients post ops in office (extremely helpful) I was tired of looking at boobs and was set on getting mine done and seeing my finished product! I am one week post op and I LOVE the look, I cannot wait until they are fully recovered and settled into place! The recovery has been great and speedy, office staff calls everyday and makes sure you are ok and don’t have any unanswered questions, which is very nice! Dr. Pousti and his team care about you and they will not let you down!

Dr. Pousti takes the time to sit down with you and gets to know you and will figure out what results you are looking for and what he thinks is the best option for you. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.  My results are exactly what I wanted. His staff is hands down the most caring, warm group of ladies you will every encounter. Every day they took the time to call and see if everything was going ok and if there was anything I needed. I wouldn’t go anywhere else “GO SEE DR. POUSTI”  you will not be disappointed!!

As a mother of identical twin girls, (23 months old.)  I was nervous about getting a breast augmentation. However, I was also disappointed and insecure of what my breast looked like after I was done with breast feeding…  Also, there were many other things on my mind. The what if’s… and my activity level of cleaning, cooking, taking care of the dog, a turtle and running a house hold, all on top of being a full time mom of two.  Not to mention, myself independence of wanting to do all these things on my own. Who would be able to take on all of this and then take care of me?  At the time, My husband was working out of town, so it also left me with a guilty feeling about doing this. How was I to know that everything would be okay with me down and out for a few days? After meeting Tom Pousti and thinking more about this, I started talking things over with my mom and mother in law to come into town and stay with me for the first few weeks. With the help and support, I finally made my decision to go thru with my surgery. I am truly happy that I did. I don’t even have to tell you about how genuine Doctor Tom’s entire office staff is. You will feel how warm and friendly they are on your first visit. Tom Pousti, not only helped me gain my self confidence, he helped me achieve my desired natural looking goal I was trying to achieve, he did more in a way words can’t describe. He is not just a doctor, who will help you achieve your personal goal, Listen to you and answer all your 100 questions during each visit but he goes the extra step, that no doctor I have ever met has gone. He treats you and his staff as he would his own family. Tom and his staff are very professional, personable, and a pleasure to be around. I was referred to Tom Pousti by a friend, and now I highly recommended him to anyone who may be interested in his services.

Dr. Tom Pousti and his staff are absolutely an amazing team! I had breast augmentation done in 2004 by Dr. Pousti and have been a client since. The difference between Dr. Pousti and other plastic surgeons is the fact that Dr. Pousti genuinely cares about you as a person and not just as a client. Dr. Pousti and his staff answered all questions in a timely manner and truly made me and my husband feel comfortable throughout the entire process.

I am constantly complimented on what a wonderful and natural job Dr. Pousti did. My main concern before undergoing surgery was the appearance of the scars once healed. I am more than ecstatic to share that the scars are not visible due to Dr. Pousti’s astounding job. Dr. Pousti and team are absolutely fantastic and have my highest recommendation!

Thank you for an admirably phenomenal job!

From the age of 15 to 25, I had plugs of some size in my ears. Over time, my career path changed and extreme body modification was no longer conducive to this. At one point, my ears held 1″ 1/4 (35mm) plugs/gauge/eyelets, etc. I had torn my fistulas(the ear hole itself) and had also “blown out” my earlobes( severe irritation/disfiguration based on too much stretching) It was time. I had my fun. Looked like a freak, but I had further aspirations and it was to time to close up the actual holes. They looked awful, sagged, and got made fun of occasionally. Because of Dr. Pousti’s work, you’d never know I even had them. But that was the ultimate result I desired.

In the process of researching this procedure, I interacted with another plastic surgeon on this website. I will not name him specifically-but he claims to be an earlobe repair specialist through mass publicity. Do not be fooled. He tried to quote me almost as high as $5500 for this procedure at one point. They tried to negotiate it down to $5200 but I said no way. Did I mention they also said the procedure would be 5 hours with only local, no sedation. Are you crazy? So! I researched further, and found Dr. Pousti! Although he was a little bit of a drive, I conversed with his office over quotes and instantly felt better about his abilities to perform this procedure. Dr. Pousti was not only 50% cheaper, He was 100% BETTER. Period. His medical credentials were more respectable, as was his demeanor and operation. The surgery was performed under local and Xanax and was a breeze. The surgery suite was immaculately clean and the staff couldn’t have been anymore friendly and professional. It’s been about 2.5 weeks since the surgery and I am blown away by the results. Dr. Pousti made my earlobes look pristine. Outstanding. I don’t think any surgeon could have performed a better job.

I decided to have a neck lift because I was developing a turkey neck and it made me look older than I am. Other than my neck, my face looked good for my age. I was worried that I’d get that windblown look so common with face lifts and shared my concern with Dr. Pousti. It’s been two months since the surgery and I am very pleased. My turkey neck is gone and I don’t have a windblown look at all! The experience has been nothing but positive–except for post-op recovery. It went very well, but still, It’s no fun recovering from any surgery. However, no pain, no gain. I am happy I had the procedure.

I couldn’t be more happy with the results from my procedure with Dr. Pousti.  He and his staff were very professional and made everything more comfortable for me.  They worked around my very strict schedule and helped make everything easier.  I would recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone with a want or need for self improvement, not only for his accumulate work but the ladies in charge of the whole process were just as amazing.  Thank you.

I have always strived for perfection and being physically attractive and youthful taking care of myself.I am a motherof two daughters ages 16 and 24 and have an adorable 4 yr old grandson.

In 1998 is when I first when under the knife for plastic surgery to get a tummy tuck and arm lipo. I liked my results and as I did more research and the years passed I had more surgeries every couple of years from lipo in various areas, two more tummy tucks, two breast lift and small implant for volume only 325 cc’s but it didn’t look right because of sagging boobs with implants sitting high by collarbone.

In 2006 I got everything revised skin removed with lift and got 1000 cc saline implants partial unders with more tummy and back lipo.Looked ok but after awhile started to sag and never had the high profile I desired.

In. Dec. 2010 I wanted to have bigger breast I was told by my plastic to achieve large boobs I would have to stack them and they didn’t make one implant large enough. I kept the 1000cc’s in place. He removed more skin on both breast to look tighter and my plastic surgeon added two more 1000cc’s one on each side giving me 2000cc’s after 5 hours in OR They were huge and I was excited to see my results. I went home very sick that night my right boob looked as though it had split down the middle below areola It was red swollen and very sore. I go for post op and it is defintely spliting fluid is oozing and its dressed.I continue to his office daily for 2 weeks to get it dressed.I go home same evening I take a small hand mirror and look at my breast and it still feels sore swollen and painful I look under my right boob crease and see a black spot . I come back to office next day and he says the black spot is my implant and it will need to be explanted I am devasated and crying hysterical.I come back the next day told to take 1 valium and went in Or on premise and had both implants on right side explanted the entire time awake.

I was left with 2000 cc on left and explanted boob wound left open without drains and was scheduled to come in everyday to change my green, blood stained gauze this went on for at least 2 months.

Had explant in Jan 2011 and was ready to replant in May 2011.got new implants and was replanted with 2000cc’s. The day of surgery was rushed back to my plastic surgeons office because implants felt like they were under my armpit after a few weeks implants were hard painful and implants were high by my collarbone I had arm pain numbness and developed a lump under my right armpit.

After months of pain and severe Capsular Contracture and implants sitting extremely high my plastis surgeon suggested to filet the scar tissue to make implants drop he called it a capsulectomy.

Dec 2011 had capsulectomy through the same scar orginally that split in Dec 2010. A week goes by its seems fine then my boobs starts to deform and gets a huge dent and turns bright red warm to the touch and I get fever chills feels like I’M going to die.I see my plastic surgeon he says its just the tissue settling and its due to all the implant pressure but no infection.I did my own research and it said Cellullitis! which is major I called to antibotics from him but he refused but his office asst called me in cipro.I stayed on antiobiotics for over a month I sent links to show my doctor this what I had but never responded.

I then researched the web an breast forums to find another opinion and highly recommended Doctor who had the expertise but who really cares for his patients like family.I finally found that one Dr.Pousti in San Diego even though his office was 6 1/2 hours away I knew I needed him to see me.I emailed pics and made appt in person.He was professional, honest and very concerned about my individual situation his office staff is superb and when you walk in you know they are a strong professional unit and they love the patients also.

Dr.Pousti did see me and set me to come back in Aug.2012 he gave me advice and his professional opinion I immediatley felt secure and looked forward to being his patient and geting the results I was trying to achieve.

In the beginning of July 2012 I started to develop a bubble filled with fluid on my right boob by the third week it had graduated to 3 bubbles I go in to my plastic surgeon and he says its a hernia and that my scar tissue split and the fluid went to the weak spots.He suggested I get the hernia cut out and deflate one of my 1000c implants to 500 cc’s so I can have 1500 cc’s on the right and keep my 2000cc’s on the left he said if it burst I will be hamburger. I felt uneasy about this procedure and option and immediatley called Dr.Pousti’s office in San Diego I even sent Dr.Poutsi pics and email and was given an appointment.

Aug.2012 at my apppt with Dr Pousti he addressed the seriousness and urgency of my situation letting me know this fliud will pop and have impant exposer and greater chance of infection and that I need to act fast I’m 61/2 hours from home but wouldn’t make it driving back without a possible expousre.Dr.Pousti even said he will lose sleep over my situation that’s how  worried he was about me. It really touched me and I booked my operation for Friday Aug.10th my 72 year old fathers birthday

Dr.Pousti took more photos re exaimed me and drawn out my areas for the operation in the days before my surgery. He let me know I would be having a double explant, shin revision and a lift.He let me know realistic expecations.He knows how much I admire larger breast and my goal of achieving larger breast in the future. He never promised me anything and I was okay with that.I knew what he was faced with and my health was epic.

I had my surgery and everythting went really well. It was my first experience with the Physicians Surgery Center and Dr.Pousti. I was pleased with everyone who helped me in the OR and recovery.Both facilities called and checked on me and Dr.Poustis office have called daily.It was my birthday on my post op day and was given a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a sentimental card signed by the entire staff, they made my day

I am now implant free and my breast. Very small 16 again lol! I feel like l left my twins at the orphange but it had to be done and will take time to get use to and it gets emotional at times.I can now focus on getting well and stronger and allowing my body to heal so maybe just maybe I can get my implants back.I will listen to Dr.Pousti’s suggestions I feel he saved my life.

I am 21 years old and had Dr. Pousti perform a breast augmentation on me 3 months ago. I was always self conscious about my breasts because being 5’10, and having a small B cup, I always felt like my body was not proportioned. After about two years of thinking of having my breasts done, I decided to visit Dr. Pousti, where two of my friends had their breasts done and gave him great reviews. During my consultation, Dr. Pousti and his staff made me feel very comfortable and not pressured. After talking with Dr. Pousti I felt very comfortable in going forward with my decision and getting my breast augmentation. I scheduled the appointment for a month later and the morning of my surgery at Alvarado Hospital I started to feel very nervous and started to re-think my decision. The nurse I had that morning was great though because she was very calming and then when I talked to Dr. Pousti, it took away my nerves and I was excited. When I woke up I was not in any pain thanks to the anesthesia and over the next few days I found it very easy to control the minor pain with pain medicine. The staff at Dr. Pousti’s office was great calling me every day just to make sure that everything was going good. They have the best customer service and never make you feel like they are too busy to help you. Luckily my breasts healed very easily and I was back to work 5 days post op. In the end I went from a 34b to a 34DD and couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone that is thinking about getting their breasts done! I am so happy and love my new breasts!

Thanks Again!! 🙂

Dear Dr. Pousti and staff:
In 1995, when I was 25 years old, I had my first set of saline breast implants put in.  Because I was always barely a size A cup, it was something that I had wanted to do as long as I could remember.  I was pleased with the results until the day I was in a car accident and one of my breast was damaged.  Because of this, in 1998 the implants had to be removed.  I had originally wanted them just removed without replacing them, however, the doctor at the time (not Dr. Pousti) talked me into removing and replacing the implants instead of removing them only.  I had a very difficult surgery as well as recovery.  I have regretted ever since then that I let the doctor talk me in to new implants.  They have since been uncomfortable; I have not been able to sleep on my stomach; as a runner, it has been hard running with the implants, they have been in the way; and I just have not been able to wear anything that I wanted without it being too tight in my chest and too big in my waist.  I was just a different person when I got the implants, and implants were not fitting in with my lifestyle any longer.  I had been beyond ready to go back to my natural body for a long time.  Finally, fourteen years later, when we were finally in a position where I could have them removed, we began to research and pray that we would find a great surgeon.  Due to the fact that I had such a horrible experience with my last surgery, we wanted to find a doctor that we could trust and one in which we would feel comfortable.  In Dr. Pousti and his staff, we found much more than we could have ever imagined or hoped for.  We have been so blessed that we found Dr. Pousti.

I would like to thank Dr. Pousti and his staff so much for all that they have done and continue to do for me even though my surgery is over.  While I was researching and looking around for the best surgeon that could perform my surgery, I kept coming back to Dr. Pousti.  I was impressed with the extremely large amount of positive comments that were on many websites. Fact is, honestly in all of the many reviews that I read through, I did not come across even one negative comment.   Also, his own personal website was amazing and filled with so much information about any surgery that you could possibly think of.  Once I went in for my first appointment, I knew for sure, no question that I wanted Dr. Pousti to perform my surgery.   Dr. Pousti, from the very first appointment made me feel beyond comfortable.  He and his staff explained everything and answered any question that I had, and I had many.  I had such a negative experience due to a very bad surgery in the past, and felt very very anxious.  Dr. Pousti took so much time to help my husband and me to feel as stressed free and relaxed as possible.  This amazing Dr. and his staff has called me everyday since my pre-op appointment just to check in on me, making sure that everything was ok and to rest any worries that we may have had as they knew that I was extra anxious. Since my surgery, they have continued calling and checking in on me to make sure that all was well.  They even called on both Saturday and Sunday.  From my first appointment until today, which is a week today since my surgery, Dr. Pousti and his staff have just gone above and beyond what they needed to do; way more than I have ever experienced from any other doctor’s office.

If Dr. Pousti and his staff were not enough, the Surgery Center where he preforms his surgeries is absolutely top of the line.  Again we were astonished and amazed at the treatment that we received there.  Dr. Pousti shared with them my concerns, and the staff from the Surgery Center went above and beyond what they needed to assure me and help make sure I was comfortable. They called me the night before and listened to my concerns.  The next day they were perfectly punctual, and everything went according to schedule.  Dr. Pousti and the staff from the Surgery Center were there by my side the whole time.  They even held my hand as I drifted off to sleep.

My husband and I will always be thankful and blessed that we found Dr. Pousti to perform my surgery, and we would not hesitate for even one second to refer anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon to Dr. Pousti.  He is truly a one of a kind Dr. with a one of a kind staff.  We searched form many other doctors, and Dr. Pousti was like night and day compared to the others that we visited.  We are absolutely sure that anyone who does choose him will be extremely satisfied, thankful, and blessed.

Extremely Grateful

PS:  A side note from my hubby —

It was very important as we searched for a doctor that we found one in whom I could feel safe in trusting my wife’s care too.  Dr. Pousti and his staff were very professional with high quality and standards which exceeded our expectations.  Thanks for taking care of my wife.

God Bless

After extensive research I chose Dr. Pousti to perform a “Mommy Makeover” (Breast life w/ implants and tummy tuck) on me.  It was the BEST decision ever!!!  After having full term twins my body had paid the price with a fully stretched out tummy and saggy breasts.  I am now 11 months post surgery and loving my new body.  My results exceeded my hopes and expectations.  Now after 7 years I can wear a bikini with full confidence again, which honestly I never thought would happen.  I have gotten countless compliments and feel wonderful!  Dr. Pousti and his staff were phenomenal!!  They took excellent care of me during the surgery, I was extremely nervous going into the surgery and the OR nurses made me feel at ease which really meant a lot to me.  After the surgery Dr. Pousti called our house to check up on me and his staff made many follow up calls in the weeks following the surgery to check up on me.  I always felt all my questions were answered in my follow up visits and my scars are all healing very well.  Dr. Pousti was a life saver for me and I would recommend him time and time again!!!

After several years with breast implants, I decided to have them removed in my mid-30s. There wasn’t anything wrong with them – thanks to the fine artistry of Dr. Pousti they looked and felt great. I had been wondering if they were contributing to some auto-immune type symptoms that I had prior to the surgery, and decided to have them removed mostly for peace of mind. As it turned out, it became clear to me pretty quickly afterward that there was no connection with the implants.I was fine without the implants for a number of years, and got used to my new “back to normal” size, which was slightly larger than the original 34A size I started out with naturally. In my early 40s I began thinking about having implants again. I was wearing bras with extra padding, again, and missing the way the implants provided my body with better symmetry. So I went back to Dr. Pousti for another go at this.

The second time around was a lot easier than the first since I knew what to expect. The staff pulled up my original photos of how my breast shape turned out with the first implants, and I decided to request a size just slightly smaller. I used the photos as a template to specify minor adjustments to reach a smaller “C” size. I am writing this just two weeks after my surgery and I am very pleased with the results, once again, and the healing process has ended up being quicker than the first time.

I don’t know how long I’ll have these implants. Maybe I’ll have them taken out in another few years, or maybe I’ll keep them for the rest of my life. I think the decision for me to have them back in again is one that works for me at this point of my life. In my case, it boils down to having a choice, and also understanding that there are some things we can control and other things we can’t. I think that much of life is an attempt to find that balance and be happy with the choices we make, which has taken me down this journey (with and without) implants.

Dr. Pousti and Staff,

Just wanted to shoot you over this email to thank you all once again for the care and expertise I experienced each and every visit of mine to Dr. Pousti. I cannot even begin to express my gratitude towards you for performing my surgery quickly, and PERFECTLY. I get compliments every where I go. It’s amazing how much differently I’m perceived by  the world and potential employers by the incredible work Dr. Pousti performed on me. Everyone was so friendly to my girlfriend and I and we think the world of all of you.

Since the surgery, I have not only been accepted to business school (Fall MBA program) ,I am also now working for the alumni networking center!
Dr.Pousti’s work is nothing short of perfect. I couldn’t have asked for better results. His work helped me to reinvigorate my career so I could no longer be judged unfairly for my appearance. It astonishes me that 10+ years of body modification was able to be remedied in one day. I think the photos speak for themselves. I will forever be thankful for Dr. Poustis work and professionalism. The process couldn’t have gone any smoother.


Testimonial:

So i research several doctors before finding Dr.Pousti online. I happened to find several positive reviews about him which persuade me to go in for a consultation with him  🙂 Since the first day I met his staff and Dr. Pousti they were very attentive and knowledgeable about the procedure I was doing. They all have great attitudes and made me feel very comfortable after the fact I was very scared to do breast augmentation. Everyone from his intermediate staff to the surgery department were great people that made me feel welcomed, comfortable and happy. After my procedure Dr.Pousti’s staff made sure to call me everyday to make sure I was doing just fine, which my mother was very surprise and happy about also. I am very pleased with my breast augmentation with Dr.Pousti and glad i came across this specific surgeon 🙂 If you are looking into any type of surgery, I definitely recommend you to go in for a consultation so you experience the positive atmosphere and work I did 🙂

Thank you,

My experience with Doctor Pousti falls nothing short of incredible. From my first consult to follow up appointments, him and his staff were completely accommodating, kind, and friendly. There was no pressure to rush a surgery date or schedule it any sooner than I was ready to do so. The entire process was clear and concise, which added to my comfort and ease with the procedure. I had no qualms or worries with Pousti or his staff; it was the genuine care for me that they all had that blew me away. My husband was deployed at the time of the surgery, and I got more “Hey Deej, how are you feeling today?” “Are you feeling lonely? Would you like to chat?” calls from him and his staff than I did my counselor (and my counselor is incredible at what he does too, so that says something!).
Pousti’s desire to understand my goals for the procedure and my lifestyle was crucial in choosing him as my surgeon. I have worked very hard on building a healthy lifestyle, and in doing so I have lost 100 lbs. The thought of handing my hard earned and toned body to a careless surgeon for a breast augmentation terrified me. My worst nightmare would be a botched boob job on the body I have spent years developing. Seeing the immense care and respect Pousti showed me and all his patients solidified that he was the surgeon for me.

The result? A set of dream-come-true perfect breasts that allow me to continue my active lifestyle, and give me those sexy curves up top to match my new figure. I LOVE the outcome, and I absolutely, without a doubt, could not be happier. I could write PAGES on my experience with Doctor Pousti, but the bottom line is, I am so incredibly elated. Pousti is my guy!!

Dr. Pousti performed an extended tummy tuck on me 8 weeks ago. Let me tell you it was one of the best decisions I have made, besides having him do my breasts a few years back! (: Dr. Pousti has a great bedside manner and helps you feel comfortable before and after surgery. The whole staff of the Pousti office are awesome as well.

I had excessive hanging skin due to major weight loss from Gastric By-pass several years ago as well as two pregnancies. I was extremely worried about the outcome of the procedure since I have read so many stories of bad jobs. What put my mind to at ease was the fact that Dr. Pousti was so confident in his skills. He even let me meet about 5 patients that he performed the same procedure on. They were all at different, some 2 weeks post op others as far as a year post op. I consider this practice of letting me meet current patients of his one of the deciding factors in my decision. It was very comforting to meet a handful of his patients that had already traveled the road I was about to.

The morning of surgery I was really nervous, but Dr. Pousti & his staff were so calm, cool & supportive of me. They understood why I was nervous and still reassured me that everything was going to be all right. With this procedure you need to be very patient for the healing process. It gets hard sometimes, you go through ups & downs but at the end of the day when I look at my before pictures, all the pain & emotional roller coaster I was on seems to disappear and I remember why I elected to get this procedure done.

At 8weeks post-op I feel almost back to normal. Dresses & yoga pants are still my clothes of choice right now due to jeans rubbing on my incision (doesn’t feel very comfortable). My tummy is the flattest it has EVER been in my 30 years of life, even though I am still a little swollen. Dr. Pousti is a magic worker! I never thought I could look the way I do! He knows what he is doing and is very proud of his work.

I would like to thank Dr. Pousti and his staff for completly exceeding every expectation i had for my breast augmentation. I am 22 years old and heard about Dr. Pousti through a close friend who also had the same procedure. I was deployed when i made my final desision that i wanted to have my surgery and even thousands of miles away they accommodated to my needs. From the consultation, the surgery and  even to today, two months later Dr. Pousti and his staff have been there every step of the way. I couldnt be happier with my results and will continue to recommend Dr. Pousti to any one interested in this procedure!

I am a 48 year old woman who had my first breast surgery in 1990 with the original silicone implants which failed and leaked. I had them removed in 2002 and had new saline implants put in.Within a year of my second surgery my breasts started to sag and develop ripples.I lived with them for ten long years and realy started to feel self conscios about my sagging, uneven and ripply breasts. At one point I had even made an appointment with another doctor but he refused to give me what I wanted which was to go bigger! I had 325 cc. saline  and I am extremely small wearing a size 0. This doctor had me believe that I was too small to go big. My boyfriend did some investigating and thus found Dr. Pousti. After checking out his extensive collection of patients, pictures, and testimonials we made an appt. to have a consultation with Dr. Pousti. His staff and himself were over the top courteous and professional. On that first day they let me talk to and inspect a nice pair of big ones on a girl that just had them done and I gotta say, I was really impressed. Then Dr. Pousti said he could give me what I wanted and I felt so comfortable and assured that I signed up for surgery on that day.What we learned was the most important thing up front was that the actual size or cc. of the implant  was not near as important as the actual size and shape that I wanted. This is where the huge importance of pictures came into play. My boyfriend urged me to pick out pictures online and in magaazines of the perfect breasts for me. He reminded me not to pick pictures where they were pushed up in a bathing suit or bra. we soon settled on a group of pics that truly showed exactly what my dream and vision was. It was also important to show Dr. Pousti pics of what turned me off. On our pre-op meeting we reviewed the pics in his office and He still felt that he could give me what I desired but that my safety would come first and foremost. Well, here I am 8 weeks later sporting a beautiful set of 34 triple D’s made up with 800 cc. of silicone over the top of the muscle.

My breasts are amazing; so full and round! Dr. Pousti was very perceptive  to what I wanted and he took the time to explain what he could do and how to achieve it. I can not say enough about Dr. Pousti and his staff. I would refer everyone to him because as far as I am concerned; He’s the best!!!

After several referrals I decided to have Dr. Pousti perform the tummy tuck procedure. Even after just one visit I was made to feel comfortable and confident that he was the right man for the job. He was very informative and realistic and I truly felt like my safety was priority number one. Dr. Pousti’s staff is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and would call several times a week after my surgery to ensure I was doing ok. That was a big deal to me. Every office visit I was seen promptly and was kept up to date on my recovery process. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pousti for anyone who is thinking about having cosmetic surgery just as several of my friends recommend him to me and we all look fabulous! I can’t thank you enough Dr Pousti! Keep making everyone look fabulous!!

I was nervous at first but it all went away on the day of my consultation with Dr. P and his staff. I was immediately comfortable with him and his staff. Dr. P is a down to earth doctor who listens to what you want and he will explain everything you need and want to know. His entire practice is all about the patient. After three previous consultations in the SD area Dr. P was the last I saw and I just knew right away he was the one I wanted to perform my breast augmentation. Working in the health care field I can say from the consultation to post-op I had the best experience a patient could have. The first time I saw my breasts I was in love with them and even though there was swelling they were perfect! The office calls you everyday 2 weeks post-op to ensure you are doing well and if you have any questions that may arise during your recovery. I had surgery 7 weeks ago and now I am out of the SD area so I am able to keep in touch with Dr. P’s office via email. If I had to do it all over again Dr. P is my number one choice!”

I wish every doctor was like Dr. Pousti!


Testimonial:
I’m 16yrs old and just had the best experience of my teenage life. A breast reduction! Most would say that 16yrs old is way too young to make such a permanent decision about one’s body. For me the decision was warranted.  At the age of 13 my breast had already reached the size of 28D and I my body frame was a size zero. Talk about disproportion.  By the age 14yrs I had become so uncomfortable with the heaviness dragging on my neck and back that I had to give up gymnastics, horseback riding and tap dance-all things that I loved. I was never one to be uncomfortable with my body, I believe people should love who they are, but having such big breast on my small frame caused me not only physical pain but emotional pain too. I didn’t like the way people looked at me, I didn’t like the way clothes fit, I didn’t like the attention my breast unintentionally brought me. Things like prom dress shopping and getting fitted for a costume for the school play, things that should be fun and memorable made me miserable and embarrassed. I didn’t dare wear a bathing suit or tight fitting t-shirt, those things and the attention they brought just didn’t fit my personality.  By age 16yrs I was size 30F and miserable (l say F-s plus because l was busting out of that size but refused to go bigger)

This surgery is the best thing that has happened to me. I knew I wanted a breast reduction by the time I was thirteen and l was bound and determined to get one. It took several years of coaxing from my mom and my team of doctors-pediatrician, physical therapist, chiropractor and especially Dr. Pousti…he’s a hero in my book. I felt he understood my pain and wanted the best for me.  I’m so glad that Dr. Pousti and his team are the ones that got my insurance to approve this surgery. They made me amazingly comfortable, I wasn’t scared at all. I woke up from the surgery instantly feeling the relief in my neck, back and shoulders that l had dreamed of for over three years. I’m now extremely happy with my body, the results are amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor.

It’s only been three weeks since my surgery and I honestly feel like a whole new person. Shopping for clothes is super fun…I can buy bras off the rack! I can wear strapless! I love my new 30B’s. They are perfect for me and l’m a very happy confident person because of how much Dr. Pousti and his Team cared. They Rock!

Sincerely with Love

HAPPY AND THRILLED I am 38 years old, and I have three children. After the birth of my youngest child, I felt it was time mommy got some much deserved TLC. I wanted a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation. I first learned about Dr.Pousti through my friend. She told me she had done extensive research into the procedure and the doctors, and she chose Dr. Pousti. Her results were amazing. She raved about the care and attention she received. That\’s when I decided to call and make an appointment. I took my aunt that day for support and to get her opinion. When we left the office, I turned to my aunt and asked her what she thought. She did not have a single negative comment. In fact, she really liked Dr. Pousti. It was great. I called back two days later and scheduled my surgery. My overall experience from the first appointment to my five-week post-op has given me the results I hoped for. I feel blessed to have found Dr. Pousti. He and his team are wonderful. He is a very positive and caring person. At one point, I called the office to ask for advice and within 15 minute, he had returned my call. When I asked him to call me back to check in on me, he did! I cannot tell you how much that meant to me. If anyone were to ever ask me to recommend a plastic surgeon, hands down Dr. Pousti is the DOCTOR/MAN. Dr. Pousti and his staff ROCK. The care I received after surgery was great. I pray that Dr. Pousti and his staff continue to make a difference in people’s lives.



Testimonial:

I am a 22 year old patient of Dr. Pousti who is currently just one week out of surgery for breast augmentation. For many, many years I had been unsatisfied with my appearance, but did not actually consider taking action and literally changing anything about my appearance until very recently, when a good friend of mine introduced me to Dr. Pousti. Upon considering undergoing breast augmentation surgery, I did some heavy research to be 100% sure that it was what I really wanted, and I finally wanted to feel great about myself. I started out as a 34B, but was hoping to become a full C or small D. I read everything I could about the procedure, and decided that there was no better time than now to go through with it. I apologize if this sounds like an exaggeration, and no one paid me to say this, but the reviews I read on every other surgeon paled in comparison to the rave reviews on Dr. Pousti by former patients, and believe me, his work almost seemed too good to be true. It turns out that I was very pleasantly surprised to find that Dr. Pousti was everything I was looking for in choosing the right surgeon, and more. When I finally went in for my first consultation after reading all of the reviews on him, it was like I was meeting a movie star! Not only that, but he had a wonderful sense of humor, was very understanding, patient, and ensured that I knew exactly what I wanted and that I wanted the procedure done for the right reasons. I informed him that my intent was for my breasts to be proportional to my body, noticeably larger, and with a bit of emphasis on cleavage, as I had none to start with, but at the same time I wanted a natural look. I appreciate that Dr. Pousti was very honest with me about the possibility of attaining those results, based on the characteristics of my body. He said, “Above all, we need to be realistic,” as far as the outcome of the results, which was a very accurate statement. The resulting size and appearance of my breasts would be what Dr. Pousti referred to as “Keep them guessing,” which I thought sounded great, since actual cup size, I learned, is only really determined once you start shopping for new bras, and the size of the implants is not measured by cup size. I received extensive pre-op and post-op instructions, which were more than helpful and left me with little to no questions. When I went in for my second follow up appointment after the surgery, I was shown the photo taken of myself before the procedure was done and I could not believe that girl was me. I was then introduced by one of the many wonderful ladies of Dr. Pousti’s staff to a patient soon to be undergoing the surgery, who wanted to ask me questions about the procedure and recovery. The fact that Dr. Pousti encourages current patients to give in-person testimonials to future patients really shows his confidence in his work, which I believe is very important when choosing a surgeon. Dr. Pousti truly is an artist, and I am extremely satisfied with my results so far, even after 1 week. I would like to take this opportunity to mention how fantastic and kind Dr. Pousti and his staff have been to me, all the way from first consultation to surgery, and even now, while I still receive daily phone calls from their office to check up on me and ask how I am feeling. Thank you for giving me flowers after my surgery by the way, ladies… it was such a sweet gesture! Rest assured, Dr. Pousti’s office will give you the genuine feeling that you are cared for as a patient, and it is evident in their professionalism, kindness, and eagerness to answer any and all questions. I cannot thank Dr. Pousti and his staff profusely enough for everything they have done, and I wish anyone considering this procedure in the future good luck.

I had my breast done 11 years ago and had saline implants put in. At the time i liked them, i finally had a more womanly body, something i had dreamed about ever since i was a little girl. But  after a few months i noticed that i could feel my implant bags on the sides and underneath and when i bent over i could see the rippling, not attractive in my eyes. But i still liked my boobies. A year ago one of my friends got her breasts done by Dr. Pousti. About a month ago i asked to see her implants and asked her some questions and i liked what i heard. So i researched him and found Dr. Pousti to be highly recommended by everyone on the internet, so i made a call and had my apointment. I was SO exited! When i walked in all of the staff there were so friendly and so helpful when i was making my decision on what i wanted. Dr. Pousti has such a friendly dispossession and you can tell that he really cares about what you want done to your body. Dr. Pousti and one of the nurses held my hand in the operating room, made me feel so calm. After i had my implant revision i was home for a few hours when i got a call from Daisy one of the women that work in the office, she was checking up on me and seeing if i had any questions or concerns. I never had any of that with my other plastic surgen, so i knew i made a good chose. I tell you i look at my breast now and i love them so much , i went with 600 cc’s silicon, bigger then my old ones and no rippling. In a year or two i am going back to Dr Pousti for my nose job. Dr. Pousti and his staff just rock!!! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOALS OR CLOSE TO THEM I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. POUSTI. look him up if you don’t believe me.

I have had the best experience with Dr. Pousti & his staff. They made me feel so at home & comfortable. They know what they are doing, The operating room staff was awesome, efficient & knew what they were doing. My goals were to have a waistline, my scar from my previous tt fixed, extended tt & lipo. 2 weeks out & I just can\’t get over how feminine I already look. I love it & just cry tears of happiness, even with being only 2 weeks out! I wish I had known of Dr. Pousti before my first tt!! Pros for me; a fantastic doctor that knew what to do for my problems, a relaxing atmosphere & a beautiful result. Why this rating? How did you choose this provider? I found Dr Pousti by reading different forums & knew he could fix what an inexperienced plastic surgeon had messed up. Once I had my consult with him, it was like finding a rare red diamond!!! ( there are 20 red diamonds in the world) I am so happy to have found him! He has been so great, he has plenty of time for me & I can’t wait for my breast revision next!! His staff are such beautiful people. They are generous with their smiles & laughter. They make you feel like you are part of their family. They have as much time to answer questions as you have questions to ask. I actually give him 10 stars!!!!!!

Testimonial:

I’m mom to three wonderful little girls. My body went through major changes to bring them into this world and none of it regretted. Nursing the three of them changed my breasts drastically. I became increasingly more aware of the changes once I stopped nursing my third, and my self confidence started to lack. At only 30 years old, I really felt it was time to enjoy my body and be able to feel full and sexy going into my prime years.

My husband and I did a lot of discussing the pros and cons of having a breast augmentation. Being the health conscious person I am, I take great pride in treating my family holistically and as natural as possible. I’m even known to go the extreme opposite of conventional medicine, so I battled with the thought of going through a breast augmentation that would introduce foreign materials into my body. Needless to say, there were many many hours of research done before finally deciding to go through with it.

I consulted with two well known and highly recommended surgeons in San Diego before making my decision. I felt a great connection with both. The following two reasons (somewhat silly I admit) were the reasons I chose the surgeon I did. Reason one: He specializes in reconstructive surgery and works with situations that require major reconstruction of severely malformed breast. I have a sensitive body and tend to produce scar tissue easily so I figured if things did go wrong with mine, I was in good hands. Reason two: I had a size and look in my mind of what I wanted but ultimately I left it up to the surgeon and I figured a male would make my breasts look great and proportioned to my body.

I was very nervous leading up to my surgery day. In fact, I almost cancelled. Instead, my surgeon called me personally to go over my fears and concerns. He did not try to push me either way in my decision to go forth. Instead, he recommended I dig deep inside and work through them before having the surgery. I decided not to cancel my appointment. The morning of I was a mess. Shaking, nauseous, just feeling like a total baby really. The surgical team was so amazing! Comforting me, trying to make me laugh and being very gentle and kind with their words and touch. My surgeon came in to reassure me before walking back to the OR. He asked what type of music I like. Walking back to the OR was a blur but when I got there they had my favorite music playing and I just broke down crying. On the table I climbed and my surgeon came over and held my hand, smiled at me and told me everything was going to be great as they sedated me, tears streaming down my face.

I awoke to a wonderful nurse helping to wash my face and apply chapstick to my dry lips. Off I went home to rest, some pretty great meds in hand. Two days of off and on sleeping, a little discomfort and by day four I was up and feeling normal. The hardest part, trying to take it easy and NOT be the over-achiever mom I am to three young kiddos.

I’m 6 months out from surgery and my new breasts feel completely normal and a part of me. Soft and very real feeling. I can play them up for bikinis or nights out, or play them down for work because of the size. My surgeon chose a great size proportioned to my body and no one can tell I had surgery. I had zero complications. Although a part of me wouldn’t mind going bigger, they are perfect for my body and going bigger comes with bigger risks. These are perfect for me!

Dr. Pousti and his staff deserve a 5 star rating and more!

Dr. Pousti and staff,It’s been almost a year since my breast augmentation, and I wanted to take the time to write and say thank you with the following:

I’ve always been athletic and curvy, but I never had much going for me up top. I have been able to surmount any challenge placed before me as a military officer, broken through physical boundaries as an athlete and fitness competitor, but nothing changed the fact that I didn’t particularly like the breasts mother nature bestowed upon me.
As I matured, it became clear that my small, odd shaped breasts were my last remaining insecurity, and the only thing I couldn’t do anything about! Enter Dr. Pousti and staff in the summer of 2011. I knew instantly that I would be comfortable amongst him and his staff. The staff are almost all of the doctor’s patients, and are not shy about showing off his handiwork! They answered all of my questions with patience and genuine interest in making sure I was going into this procedure with realistic expectations, and a solid understanding of what was to come.
The day of the procedure, there wasn’t a moment I felt unease, there was always someone with me to tell a joke, make sure I was warm, etc. They even played my favorite music and held my hand as I went under–can you ask for better than that? Never once did I doubt I was in professional, trustworthy, and caring hands.
Every day after surgery I received a call from the office as a check up. That little service makes all the difference in the world when you’re recovering from a major surgery. Again, my confidence in Dr. Pousti and his staff was exceptionally high.
My goal with my breast augmentation was to leave people wondering whether I was simply blessed. I wanted to maintain a highly active lifestyle, but also take on a more womanly silhouette. I clearly communicated my intent to Dr.Pousti, and he skillfully crafted the exact look I was going for. Recently a friend asked me, “how do you have such perfect breasts?!” I just smiled to myself, and started typing this testimonial as soon as I had a free moment. Thank you, Dr. Pousti for giving me the breasts I always wanted. For being patient and generous, and hiring such amazing ladies! I can’t wait for the opportunity to recommend your services to friends and family!

In 2009 I had a huge life style change. I moved out of my parents and started to really focus on bettering myself and my life style. I began to work out on a regular basis and starting eating healthier. After losing 35 pounds I couldn’t believe how great I looked and how much I improved myself. Then I started thinking “Well if only I had a more woman physic I would be complete”. I was AA naturally, so losing weight cause them to just disappear. I started to become really insecure and decided that I was going to get a breast Augmentation. I started researching and researching doctor after doctor and then I came across Dr. Pousti’s website. I read it from top to bottom looking at the photo galleries and reading the testimonials/reviews. Every single testimonial I read I could feel the happiness and excitement form these woman on how happy they were with the whole experience. I have never had a major surgery before and hearing the horror stories really made me cautious and careful when it came to deciding on a doctor. My other problem was I didn’t have the funds at the time for the surgery, but I couldn’t stop reading and looking at Dr Pousti’s Site. So I decided to keep researching and working out so that when it came time when I would have the funds, I would have the prefect Doctor and the perfect body. Well I became addicted with the idea and had to schedule a consultation with Dr Pousti.

July 2010 I drove down to Dr Pousti’s Office in San Diego to meet with him. I brought along my boyfriend who was also eager to hear what his idea was for me. The staff of ladies in his office were amazing and so caring. They were so helpful and I felt so clam and relaxed since I was so nervous to meet Dr. Pousti. I have read and researched him so much that I felt like I was about to meet a movie star. Dr. Pousti introduced himself and shared some of his accomplishments and achievements. I still wasn’t exactly sure on what procedure I wanted so he was so helpful about helping me decide. At the end of the consolation they gave me a free bra and implants so I could go home and play around with my clothes and figure out the size I really wanted.

March 2011 I was laid off from my job due to the economy and was devastated. Not only did the thought of not having a job killed me but I felt like I would never be able to afford my breast Augmentation. I was depressed and looking for a new job took so much out of me. Then June 2011, my boyfriend told me he had the money and that I should call Dr. Pousti office and schedule an appointment. I was so happy and so excited that I called right away. They had an opening about 3 weeks in advance in July and I booked it. I was so excited and the only thing I could do is count down the days. But after only 3 days I got called back, Vanessa one of Dr. Pousti amazing staff members called to tell me that they had a cancelation and I was the next in line so I was able to book my surgery at the end of June.

Surgery day. My operation was scheduled at 8:00am and I had to be there 2 hours early for prepping. I was so nervous but never scared. The staff did an amazing job entertaining me and making me feel comfortable. Dr Pousti went over the surgery again with me and they took me to the surgery room. A little over an hour later, I woke up from the anesthesia and went home about an hour later. My healing process wasn’t bad I was up and walking around within 5 days. Now I am 6 months along and feel amazing. I ended up with 450 cc silicone in each breast making me a 34 DD. I am so happy with my results and still cant believe it when I look in the mirror. Thanks to Dr. Pousti and his amazing staff, I am what I have always dreamed of being and with out his incredible work, I could have never and couldn’t even imagine feeling and looking the way I do now. Thank you so much Dr. Pousti. You are a life changer!

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.


Testimonial (Before Surgery):

Hi Dr. Pousti!!!

Before I ever have surgery, I just want to say thanks.  Losing this weight has been an incredibly long and emotional journey, and I am getting very excited to see the benefit of all my hard work pay off.  100 lbs is NOT easy, and it is even harder to do over 4 years!!!  But even after all the tears and frustrations, it is sooo worth it!  I have had a few doctors in my short little life, and you are truly one of a kind.  I left today knowing exactly that I had made the right choice coming to see you, and even though as nervous as I get, I know that I am in good hands with you.

I am blessed to be in the position that I am in to get surgery, and I am blessed to have been guided to your office.  Good thing you have such great referrals from my friends!! They love you!  Truly deserved!

Anyway, it is always easy for everyone to say thanks after their surgeries, but I wanted to say thanks before.  Just wait ’til I am rocking that bikini and shippin’ ya pictures for your wall!

You are one in a million!

I would highly recommend Dr. Pousti and his team to anyone! They treat clients with the utmost in professionalism, client care and quality of service! We met with 3 other plastic surgeons prior to choosing one for my breast augmentation surgery. After meeting with Dr. Pousti, we knew the search was over. He and his entire staff are truly looking to give patients exactly what they are hoping for, and you can tell that he genuinely cares about making sure you are 100% happy with your results. Extremely satisfied with the way he does business and my end results!


Testimonial:
I am 5’2 110 pounds and started with 450cc which were bottoming out and causing me much discomfort. I wanted to go smaller to prevent this from happening again. I was really apprehensive about going to just any doctor to fix this problem.  I researched many doctors but couldn’t seem to find a doctor with whom I would be comfortable or have the confidence to do the kind of surgery I needed. I was looking for a doctor who specialized in the “internal bra.”  Finally I came across Dr. Pousti and read all about his surgeries and decided to make an appointment for a consultation.  The consultation was very informative and most importantly, I felt very confident that I had made the right choice. Dr. Pousti was very professional, caring and very considerate of answering my questions and really listened to my concerns. His office staff was also very caring, helpful and very informative of the surgeries as well as the aftercare. At first I wanted to go 100cc’s smaller.  I was nervous about what size I was going to be.  The day of the surgery, Dr. Pousti did his sketching and immediately I felt at ease because he is so confident and knew exactly what he was doing with what we both wanted to achieve.  At the end of the surgery, I ended up 371cc’s and  I’m so happy that he decided not to go any smaller!  They look very natural and now I feel so confident and pleased with my new look!!  His staff is great!!! Dr. Pousti is a true artist and I thank him for the wonderful job that he’s done!!!!

Thank you again

Both women and men are improving their looks and their confidence by entrusting their bodies to any one of the number of qualified surgeons available throughout the world today.

I share the same discontent with a certain part of my body as do literally hundreds of thousands of women across the globe. I was not happy with my breast size. My decision to have breast augmentation surgery was not taken lightly, nor was it a fleeting thought . It is something I’ve contemplated for years, dating as far back as my teenage years, when I was just 16 years old.

A couple of months ago, I finally decided to move forward with this transformation in my life and make things happen.I did a lot of informative research about breast augmentation, the actual surgical procedure itself, possible side effects and, of course, I inquired on countless qualified surgeons throughout San Diego county. I hand picked a few and set out to visit each one of them for a complimentary consultation. With every consult I attended, I gained knowledgeable insight. I was informed, educated and introduced to each doctor’s own way of practicing medicine. I paid special attention to the staff and the overall feeling I got from the atmosphere of each office. I can honestly say, each doctor I visited seemed more than capable of performing my surgery and I felt very confident in each one of them. I was initially scheduled to have my surgery with a prominent, highly recommended physician (not Dr. Pousti) on April 27, 2012, when I decided to get one last opinion. I found Dr. Tom Pousti’s name on the internet and was quite impressed with his patient “before and after” photos. So, I made the appointment. When I visited Dr. Pousti for my initial evaluation, I was more than prepared with my mental list of questions and concerns and knew that Dr. Pousti, if he were to be my surgeon, would have to offer me something I had not yet been introduced to by the other doctors. Dr. Pousti had to win me over as a patient. By gosh, I was pleasantly surprised! My expectations were met and the information I received actually exceeded what I felt was necessary to get me to sign on that dotted line. I felt extremely comfortable and at ease with every part of my consultation. Dr. Pousti’s staff were very friendly and very knowledgeable about all aspects of breast augmentation. When I aked questions, they actually listened to what I was saying and addressed all of my concerns. As for Dr. Pousti, he is quite a character! He has a great sense of humor and is very friendly. He makes his patients feel like they have known him for years. By the end of my appointment with Dr. Pousti, I decided I was cancelling my surgery with the other physican and scheduling my procedure with Dr. Pousti.

As I mentioned earlier, I did extensive research on my soon to be “enhancements” and, therefore, was very critical about receiving exactly what I wanted in terms of shape and size. I was very surprised when Dr. Pousti and the nurses were as determined to understand what I wanted as much as I was determined to convey my desires to them, even up to the last cc. There were only two pictures (that I downloaded and printed from Dr. Pousti’s website) that I felt displayed my desired results. I must mention that the difference between those two pictures was very, very small (about 70cc difference in implant sizes), This allowed Dr. Pousti a very small margin for error.

On the day of my procedure, I arrived at the surgery center both excited and anxious. This would be my first surgical experience, other than having my wisdom teeth removed, so everything was very new to me. The nurses and Dr’s that work with Dr. Pousti are just awesome!! They were very friendly and professional. One of the nurses talked to me about my desired results while we were waiting for Dr. Pousti to arrive. She said “I am your voice in the surgery room so I want to make sure that I understand exactly what you want. Dr. Pousti, of course, will be the one to make the final decision, but I will be there to make sure all of us are on the same page”. After I spoke to her, Dr. Pousti showed up, and, putting any doubts or final concerns I might have to rest, Dr. Pousti discussed my desired results with me one last time. After that conversation, I knew I had made the right decision…there was no turning back now. The only thing that was on my mind was how excited I was and that I was looking forward to seeing my surgery results.

My surgery went well, no problems with the anesthesia or with the surgery itself. I was actually told I was the “model patient”. When I woke up in the recovery room, I looked down at my chest and was so happy, they were just what I wanted! I couldn’t be happier. My post operative experience has been uneventful. That is a good thing! I have had no problems whatsoever. I’m at the beginning of my third week post-op. I stopped taking pain medications on the 3rd day after surgery, and was driving myself around on the 4th day(and I even drive a stick shift!). I know the speed in which I recovered is not common. Each person heals individually and it all depends on one’s own body. For some people, the healing process takes a couple of weeks. For those fortunate ones, such as myself, recovery can happen in just a few days.

I want to share some post-operative information in regards to sleeping positions. For the first week after surgery, you will only be able to sleep on your back. During your second to third week post-op, you should be able to sleep on your side. You won’t be able to sleep on your stomach for about 2-3 months after the surgery. I found a little trick to help with the “laying or sleeping on my stomach dilemma”. At night before I’m falling asleep, I put one pillow under my head(as usual) and I place one pillow under my stomach. In doing this, your breast barely touches the bed and it takes pressure off of your back . Also, the first few days following your surgery, the sling you are required to wear is pretty tight and very warm. I consulted with one of Dr. Pousti’s nurses after surgery and asked if I can use some sort of cold pack to reduce the “heat” and “swelling” of my breasts. I had read on the internet that some women recommend using cold packs to relieve their symptoms after surgery. Dr. Pousti’s nurse informed me that using cold packs can lead to complications, therefore, Dr. Pousti does not recommend cold therapy after surgery.

Dr. Pousti please don’t kill me… but…I used a wet towel ( I wet it in a slightly in cold water) and was applying it to my chest the first and second day post-op. I found it helped cool me down and it relieved some of the tightness in my skin. I’m not recommending going against doctor’s orders, so please ask your doctor before applying an sort of ice therapy to the surgical area.

Overall, I’m extremely happy with my results. It has been so much fun acquiring new pieces to my wardrobe. I had no idea I would be able to shop and buy myself new clothes just one week after my surgery. As for my old clothes, they look so much better in the “new me”. Now, I find myself paying special attention to my posture. When standing, I proudly display my new acquisitions. And, for the most part, people notice.

My only complaint is within myself. I’m very active and am used to working out pretty hard 6 times a week. Unfortunately, one of Dr. Pousti’s post-operative instructions is to restrict your work-out regimen. Obviously, doing any exercises that involve the chest muscles have to be omitted for a few weeks after surgery. Dr. Pousti does not want his “masterpiece” compromised by any unnecessary activities. So, for now, I have to hold myself back and forgo push-ups, crunches, etc., until I am fully recovered. I think adjusting my workout routine to consist of primarily leg exercises for the next few weeks is a small price to pay considering all I have gained.

My stats: I’m 5’6, 124lb, before surgery cup size A.
Post surgery: Silicon Implants, 300cc, under the muscle, desired result achieved: full B-small C cup

Best wishes,

“Roses are red; violets are black…why is your chest as flat as your back?”  These were normal things I heard growing up, but I didn’t let it define me.  I was always self-conscious about my chest, but I tried not to let it bother me.  Fast forward…fell in love, got married and started a family…J  Was seriously wondering how I was going to breastfeed without any breasts?!?  But hey, being pregnant and nursing was fun…the “titty fairy” came and I got to experience boobs for the first time.  So after my husband and I were done having kids is when I really started to consider “doing” something about it.  I searched all over the internet because I wanted a very natural look.  Most of the pictures I was looking at came back to this Doctor in San Diego…Dr. Pousti.  My husband and I met with him and he really got inside my head as to the struggles I was having making this decision to consider something like surgery.  I left the office excited at the possibility, but still weighing my decision.  It was much more of an emotional process than I realized.  I had to come to terms with my own body and how I viewed beauty…was I just being vain?  In the end I decided to embark on this journey, not to be noticed or to be the hottie at the beach in a bikini, but to feel like a woman.   From there, I booked my date and moved forward without looking back.  I put together some pictures from his website of the look I was trying to achieve.  The night before surgery Dr. Pousti called and reassured me (I think he sensed my anxiety of being too large at the pre-op visit) that I was in good hands and my results would be very “natural.”  Dr. Pousti really listened and gave me what I desired.  I now feel sexy and comfortable in my own skin…J  Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you Dr. Pousti and staff for a wonderful experience from start to finish!



Testimonial:

Dr. Pousti has given me the best gift I’ve ever received – my confidence back. Four years ago when I was only 18, I had breast augmentation performed by another local plastic surgeon, Dr. Kincaid. Being so young and eager, I blew off the obvious warning signs that he was not a good surgeon and chose him anyway. Though I stated time and time again that I wanted a natural, realistic looking chest for my size, I ended up with breasts that were anything but natural looking. I knew right away that he had left me with symmastia, and despite trying everything I could think of to get them to separate, they would not move. This was devastating to me as it meant I had spent all that money to end up worse off than I was before. Instead of gaining confidence, I gained embarrassment and physical pain. I couldn’t wear anything low-cut and hated trying to find bathing suits that would cover up the center of my chest. I spent the next four years hiding behind bulky clothes so that no one would know the awful thing I was hiding. I even tried my best to keep them from my longtime boyfriend, who I had started dating before I ever had implants.

By the time I turned 22 I knew I had to do something about them. I started researching different techniques to fix symmastia online and found that most of the before and after photos I was seeing on various websites were all attributed to Dr. Pousti. When I saw the great reviews people had left for him, I knew I wanted a consultation.

The difference between Dr. Pousti’s office and the office of my prior surgeon is like day and night. The girls at the front desk are all very nice and helpful, and Dr. Pousti is always on time for appointments. From our first meeting I knew that I wanted him to be the one to fix my symmastia. I think I visited his office three times in five days early on because I had so many questions and concerns regarding my procedure. Even though I had emailed him my questions, he invited me in to his office versus emailing me back to make sure I got a clear answer I could be satisfied with. Dr. Pousti’s confidence in his ability to fix my symmastia gave me confidence too. He was even able to schedule my surgery with very short notice, since it would be the only time my work and school schedule would allow for two weeks off until the following year. It’s amazing to me how he went out of his way time and time again to help me during the whole process.

The day of my surgery I was surprising calm. Aside from a little nervousness about how much pain I would be in after surgery, I wasn’t nervous at all about the procedure going well – I just knew it would. Most people thought I’d be a nervous wreck, seeing as how my last surgery ended up so horribly, but my faith in Dr. Pousti’s ability was quite strong. He just has this way about him that’s very reassuring and calming.

The surgical facility was also excellent. The nurses there were very kind and understanding, and did their best to make me feel comfortable. Right before I went under, I had both a nurse and Dr. Pousti holding my hands as the anesthesia went in, telling me not to worry. When I woke up, aside from the pain and grogginess that is to be expected, I felt great.

Interestingly, my pain after my symmastia revision surgery was far less than the pain I experienced after my initial augmentation. The day of my surgery I went home and was climbing stairs and watching TV, and the day after I went out to eat. In fact, the hardest part of my initial recovery was resisting the temptation to take off my tape/bandages to see what my new breasts looked like, but I figured if I could wait four years, I could wait a few more weeks.

When I was finally able to view the results of my surgery, I was absolutely amazed. Before where my breasts had touched and puffed up now laid a smooth, flat area of skin. The size of the space was perfect, and even though I was still somewhat swollen, I knew Dr. Pousti had listened to my wishes that I not have too much fullness on top. Seeing my results literally brought tears of happiness to my eyes, they were that great.

Now, about three months post-op, my breasts are softer, rounder, and more natural looking than ever. I have been wearing my “thong” bra religiously, and have resisted the urge to wear a normal bra or exercise. I was having a little trouble massaging the implants as often as Dr. Pousti told me to at first, so to ensure they stayed soft he put me on an anti-inflammatory medicine that has been helping tremendously. Also, the space between my implants is still flat and smooth, with no tenting or rippling to speak of.

I can now wear any type of top or bathing suit I like, and my breasts look great. I recently went bra shopping and for the first time, it was a pleasant experience. My life is becoming more in line with how normal 22 year olds live – I’m going out more and have more confidence, and I am no longer put in awkward situations where my old breasts would have held me back. This operation was truly life changing, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job Dr. Pousti and his staff have done for me.

If there’s one thought I want to leave people with, it’s that selecting the right surgeon is the most important decision you’ll ever make. Dr. Pousti is so talented at what he does, and shows genuine concern and compassion for his patients like I have not seen with any other doctor. His ability to fix what most other surgeons told me was difficult if not impossible to do shows what a true professional he really is. I only wish I had met him four years ago, but I’m more grateful than anyone can know to have him as my surgeon for my revision. Thank you Dr. Pousti and your wonderful staff for changing my life for the better.

Dear Dr. Pousti,

I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for the exceptional care and treatment provided by you and your team in connection with my Breast Augmentation – Remove and Replace procedure in February of this year.

Having spent greater than eights years working with renowned physicians surgeons throughout the United States as a medial malpractice defense attorney; it is my humble opinion that the skill level and degree of artistic perfection exhibited by you intra-operatively places you undoubtedly within the top tier of plastic surgeons. The trust and confidence that I intuitively felt pre-operatively were most certainly confirmed post-operatively by your polished work product, which incorporated, distinguished surgical and post-surgical techniques designed to maximize the aesthetic value of the breast augmentation. Likewise, the quality of care and concern exhibited by your team throughout this process further supports the conclusion that I am most pleased by the treatment referenced herein.

Based on the above, the decision to proceed under your care and guidance seems most obvious. Accordingly, please feel free to forward this correspondence, or to otherwise provide my contact information, to any prospective patients.

Advice to future breast augmentation patients………..from an extremely satisfied patient of Dr. Pousti’s!!!

I am not going to brag about Dr. Pousti and what an accomplished, skilled surgeon he is.  I’m sure you have thoroughly toured his website, read the testimonials and have familiarized yourself with his bio and his credentials.  Or maybe you are lucky enough to have met him and had a consultation already.  Either way,  you are already aware of his passion for what he does, and how committed he is in helping his patients achieve their desired plastic surgery goals.

I am however  going to tell you what sets Dr. Pousti aside from any other plastic surgeon…….he listens and he is honest.  He is extremely receptive to everything that you tell him and he is very straight forward and honest.  If he doesn’t believe that something is a good idea, or it cannot be successfully surgically achieved…….he will tell you straight up.  He’s not going to sugar coat anything or tell you what you might want to hear.    He is going to give you his professional and surgical recommendation that will leave you with a clear insight of exactly what your surgical experience is going to entail.  Some situations are easy, some are more complex than others…….some patients need a revision surgery, a  two-step surgery…….ect.  Whatever the case you will feel completely confident that Dr. Pousti sincerely has your best interest in mind.

Here is where my advice comes into play!

Dr. Pousti like any other human being can only listen to exactly what you tell him.   So make sure you think about your body and what you really want.  Rather than focusing on the amount of cc’s you think you need to achieve your desired bra size, or putting too much emphasis on the photos you see on his website or in magazines………..go out and buy the bras that you want to wear after your surgery.  Or buy the bathing suits that you want to wear, or a shirt you want to fill out.  I wear a 36DD bra in the Victoria’s Secret bras that I buy, but I have a few bras from Macy’s and Nordstrom’s that are a 36D.  EVERY bra is different!!!!  And keep in mind when looking at pictures of women with implants to gain better size perspective, the EXACT same size implants on two different women will look completely different.

I think most women have this misconception in their head that if they get a breast augmentation their breasts will come out looking like a playboy centerfold’s breasts……..I know I did!  Oh how I wish that were the case!!!  But the reality of it is that there are many factors on your body that will determine the end result of your breast augmentation.  The amount of breast tissue that you have to start with, the natural shape of your breast (round, tear drop, ect) weather you decide to have your implants placed on top or below the muscle, weather you chose silicone or saline, what style implant you chose (moderate, high profile, ect) and whether or not you need a lift. I know a lot of this can be a little overwhelming, and that is what Dr. Posuti is going to help you with.  He will make his recommendation based on what he thinks is going to achieve the most successful results for you and your body.

If you go into your surgery with realistic expectations, then you will come out with realistic results!!!  Good luck ladies!!!!


Testimonial:
I got breast implants this past February 2012 with Dr. Pousti, and I am so extremely happy with my decision, and my choice in plastic surgeon.  Dr. Pousti is an excellent surgeon! At the beginning of January I was interested in getting implants, so my boyfriend and I
scheduled a consultation and we received such welcoming and assurance. I was first introduced to Daisy, who provided me with some basic background information and answered all my questions I had. Next she gave me books to look over to see what exactly I was looking for, in terms of size, shape, and appearance. Dr. Pousti and his staff put every effort forth to obtain the results you want, which is so great. Later, Dr. Pousti came into the room and introduced himself, gave me some background of his professional record, and then asked me about myself – he was looking to see what I wanted from the surgery; why I was looking into getting breast implants, and later assured me I was in excellent hands in terms of surgery.  There was no pressure from Dr. Pousti to get the surgery, unlike some stories you hear where the clients are pressured into setting a date. He made sure this was something I wanted and was comfortable with. He told me to take as much time as I needed to think about it, but I knew he was the surgeon I wanted.

My boyfriend and I discussed moving forward, and a couple days later,I called the office and set a surgery date. I was in a time crunch to get the surgery done because I have vacation in April, and I needed plenty of time to heal before vacation. From the time I had my first consultation to when I went in for surgery, it was just over a month –his office is very flexible with scheduling appointments and they made sure I could get my implants in the time period I wanted. At my pre-op appointment, Dr. Pousti told me to come with a poster of pictures of what I liked and didn’t like in terms of appearance of breasts. I ended up making a collage and put pictures of what I did not want, and put pictures from his website/magazines of how I wanted my breasts to look with and without a bra. The purpose of this poster is to help Dr. Pousti during surgery, which he hangs the poster up and can match perfectly how I want the implants to look on me.

The week of surgery was rough, healing wise, but any type of surgery is. Yet I was, and still am, impressed with the professional follow-up of his staff. I got a call from the office a few hours after surgery to see how I was doing, and continued to get calls from the office
just about every day for the first week to see if I had any questions and to follow-up on my recovery. Dr. Pousti and his staff truly care about your well-being, which impresses me thoroughly.

It has now been two and a half weeks since I got the implants, and I am SO pleased with my decision! I started off as a “B” cup size and should end up as a “D” (I’m still wearing the surgical bra, so I have yet to go bra shopping). I told Dr. Pousti I didn’t want to go too
big, but I wanted to go big enough that I would not regret that I should have gone larger. Additionally, I didn’t want the implants too round, and wanted them natural looking – he eventually termed my appearance as “to keep people guessing,” which is exactly what I
wanted.  I absolutely LOVE the final results!

I just had my second post-op appointment and Dr. Pousti said my healing was going great and his staff was impressed with how great the implants look, just after two weeks. The scaring is barely noticeable, which will further reduce over time, and the swelling has greatly reduced.

Dr. Pousti is such an excellent surgeon, and after all the years of cosmetic surgery he has done, he is truly an artist. I have heard and read that people from all over the nation (and other countries) have flown out here to receive surgery by Dr. Pousti, and I understand why – he is excellent at what he does! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Pousti for breast implants, and any other type of surgery, as I assume the same amazing results.  What else impresses me, aside from his artistic talent, is his rapport with clients. With the various times I have been to the office, I notice he has numerous appointments with clients that are seeing him for a consultation and for pre/post-op appointments. With the amount of clientele he has, I figured he may not recognize everyone when he sees you waiting in the lobby –
however, he remembers everyone. I was sitting in the waiting-room waiting for my post-op appointment and he walked by and waved to me. Something as minor as this, was truly impressive. He not only cares about pleasing his clients for their final results, but he remembers everyone, which is amazing. After this, I was even more pleased that I came to him to perform my surgery. If I return later for a touch-up for my implants, I would not even consider going to anyone else but Dr. Pousti. His staff is extremely nice and knowledgeable. Not only does Dr. Pousti want you to be comfortable with him and the surgery, but that you feel comfortable with his staff of girls, who are so helpful and caring. From the very beginning, he made me very comfortable with pursuing such a big personal decision, and now I am so extremely pleased with the results. I feel more confident and absolutely enjoy the fact that when I get dressed up, I don’t have to try and make my breasts look the way I want them to in clothes, because that has already been achieved.

My 1st breast augmentation surgery was performed overseas 25 years ago!  I had silicone implants positioned over the muscle.  I developed capsular contracture and for that reason, together with the age of the implants, felt that it was time for revision surgery.

I did so much research on the subject, I felt like I had earned a degree on the subject!  Armed with this knowledge, I narrowed down my choice of surgeons to 3.  Due to the amount of experience Dr Pousti had in revision surgery, together with the glowing reviews about his personal demeanor, skill and professionalism, Dr Pousti was hard to fault and in the end, I made only one consult appoint with Dr P and that meeting was enough to make me comfortable enough to go ahead with the surgery.

I am now 12 months post op and am so happy with my results.  I was terrified that the end result would be bigger than I wanted, but he was exactly spot on with my desired size.

I drove 6 hours for each appointment to see Dr Pousti but it was definitely worth  it.  He is such a caring, gentle doctor and must admit that you can’t help but fall a little bit in love with him.  Hopefully I won’t develop capsular contracture again but I know if I do, I’ll be back to see Dr P for any future surgeries.

Thank you to all at Pousti Plastic Surgery for your expertise and professionalism always!


Testimonial:
In 2009 I had a huge life style change. I moved out of my parents and started to really focus on bettering myself and my life style. I began to work out on a regular basis and starting eating healthier. After losing 35 pounds I couldn’t believe
how great I looked and how much I improved myself. Then I started thinking “Well if only I had a more woman physic I would be complete”. I was AA naturally, so losing weight caused them to just disappear. I started to become really insecure and decided that I was going to get a breast augmentation. I started researching and researching doctor after doctor and then I came across Dr. Pousti’s website. I read it from top to bottom looking at the photo galleries and reading the testimonials/reviews. Every single testimonial I read I could feel the happiness and excitement form these woman on how happy they were with the whole experience. I have never had a major surgery before and hearing the horror stories really made me cautious and careful when it came to deciding on a doctor. My other problem was I didn’t have the funds at the time for the surgery, but I couldn’t stop reading and looking at Dr Pousti’s Site. So I decided to keep researching and working out so that when it came time when I would have the funds, I would have the prefect Doctor and the perfect body. Well I became addicted with the idea and had to schedule a consultation with Dr Pousti.

July 2010 I drove down to Dr Pousti’s Office in San Diego to meet with him. I brought along my boyfriend who was also eager to hear what his idea was for me. The staff of ladies in his office were amazing and so caring. They were so helpful and I felt so calm and relaxed since I was so nervous to meet Dr. Pousti. I have read and researched him so much that I felt like I was about to meet a movie star. Dr. Pousti introduced himself and shared some of his accomplishments and achievements. I still wasn’t exactly sure on what procedure I wanted so he was so helpful about helping me decide. At the end of the consolation they gave me a free bra and implants so I could go home and play around with my clothes and figure out the size I really wanted.

March 2011 I was laid off from my job due to the economy and was devastated. Not only did the thought of not having a job killed me but I felt like I would never be able to afford my breast Augmentation. I was depressed and looking for a new job took so much out of me. Then June 2011, my boyfriend told me he had the money and that I should call Dr. Pousti office and schedule an appointment. I was so happy and so excited that I called right away. They had an opening about 3 weeks in advance in July and I booked it. I was so excited and the only thing  could do is count down the days. But after only 3 days I got called back, Vanessa one of Dr. Pousti amazing staff members called to tell me that they had a cancelation and I was the next in line so I was able to book my surgery at the end of June.

Surgery day. My operation was scheduled at 8:00am and I had to be there 2 hours early for prepping. I was so nervous but never scared. The staff did an amazing job entertaining me and making me feel comfortable. Dr Pousti went over the surgery again with me and they took me to the surgery room. A little over an hour later, I woke up from the anesthesia and went home about an hour later. My healing process wasn’t bad I was up and walking around within 5 days. Now I am 6 months along and feel amazing. I ended up with 450 cc silicone in each breast making me a 34 DD. I am so happy with my results and still cant believe it when I look in the mirror. Thanks to Dr. Pousti and his amazing staff, I am what I have always dreamed of being and with out his incredible work, I could have never and couldn’t even imagine feeling and looking the way I do now. Thank you so much Dr. Pousti. You are a life changer!

I had been researching plastic surgeons for over a year and am so pleased that I decided to choose Dr. Pousti’s services.  Several friends had procedures done by Dr. Pousti and were thrilled with the results. Their strong recommendations and my extensive personal research convinced me that Dr. Pousti was the best choice. My experience was exceptional and I have joined the many devoted fans of Dr. Pousti.

Dr. Pousti and his staff are incredibly professional and are simply the best in the business. They made me feel comfortable and special throughout the entire procedure. Dr. Pousti strives to be the best and it shows in his work. He is very personable, listens intently to his patients, and goes the extra mile to ensure that his patients are completely satisfied.

I am a professional photographer and designer with an eye for natural beauty. I was hoping for a natural, yet artistic look and that is exactly what I received.

From the very first meeting through the operation and post care, my experience was incredibly positive. I highly recommend Dr. Pousti and his staff to all my friends and colleges without reservation.

I am a 41 year old and have been fighting my weight gains and losses ever since I was 23 years old. In high school I thought I looked okay. It wasn’t until I married and had 2 children that my weight problem got serious. Every year the pounds just kept adding up until I was at 265 pounds and didn’t know how I got there. I tried many different weightless programs, and always seemed to put the weight back on just as fast as I lost it.

After 2 years of hard work at the gym and watching what I ate, I managed to loose 80 pounds, which left me with what I called my “skin tutu” around my middle and my breast hung down to my waist, which my kids referred to as my “cuddle buddies” because they laid on the bed next to me.

The more I lost the worst I looked! I wanted to love the body I worked so hard to get, but that isn’t what happened. The skin would just hang worse every pound I lost I wanted to love my body.

I started looking on the Internet at “mommy makeovers” before and after pictures, and at people like me who lost a lot of weight, and wanted the skin removed. I would say for every 10 women that I found, that I looked like in there before pictures, and loved their after pictures, 8 out of those 10 women were done by Dr. Pousti.

I looked at before and after pictures for at least a year prior to my surgery, wondering if I should do this or not. I was scared of what was involved and how I would look after. I didn’t want to look like one of those women who have surgeries and look worse afterwards.

Well, with the love and support of my fiancé, my children, my parents and my friends, I decided to make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Pousti.

The day of my consultation, my fiancé and my mother came with me to my appointment. We went to Dr Pousti’s office in Murrieta, Ca. The moment I walked in, it felt so right. The women who work there were not just stunningly beautiful on the outside, but on the inside. They made me feel so comfortable and at ease! Dr. Pousti came in and looked at me and said he thought I would have amazing results. He suggested having an extended tummy tuck and a breast reduction, with some liposuction.

I weighted in at 207 and knew I had more weight to lose. I wanted to have this surgery in January when my business is slower. Dr Pousti suggested that an ideal weight he would like me to be for surgery was 180 pounds. Well, I was within a few pounds of my goal when surgery day arrived.

About 1 month prior to my scheduled surgery, my fiancé found out he had Thyroid Cancer. I wasn’t sure if I should cancel my surgery with Dr. Pousti. When I came in to see Dr. Pousti he could see I was nervous about my fiancé’s news. Dr Pousti asked who the surgeon was and he personally called every ENT Dr. That he knew to see if anyone had heard of this surgeon, and what his experience was. He called me personally the next day to tell me of his findings. Dr Pousti didn’t have to make those calls, but he did, and that meant the world to me. He doesn’t just care about me, but also about the man I love. My fiancé had his surgery and it was a success!

The day before my surgery my fiancé, and my mother came with me to Dr Pousti’s office in La Mesa ca. He did all his markings of what was going to remove, where he would cut and where he would lipo. He marked my breast so I would have my best results.

We stayed at my aunt’s house ,which was close to the surgery center, and is where I stayed for the first week after surgery. My mom was my nurse for the first week! I can’t thank her enough for helping me. I stayed at my aunts because Dr. Pousti wanted me to stay close by so he could check on me post surgery.

The day finally arrived, and we arrived at the surgery center. Dr Pousti uses the same surgery center, with the same anesthesiologist and the same nurses and assistants. I was so scared and everyone calmed me and made me feel comfortable and so special. They were very professional, and they had a way of making you feel like you were their only patient! Dr Pousti came in and checked his marking and did some minor adjustments,and then they took me back to the operating room. I woke up 8 hours later 6 hour surgery 2 hours of recovery, and I felt like I just got there.

The feeling I had was the feeling of tightness! I’m not going to lie week 1 was the hardest week but it was worth it! He installs a pain pump that numbs the incision area. I had 4 drains 2 from my breast and 2 from my pelvic area. They sent me home the same day of surgery. I really don’t remember too much as I was still really groggy.

I stayed at my aunts house and slept in a recliner for the first week. Dr Pousti and his wife  were so kind to check on me the first night after surgery! They even brought me flowers! Never have I heard of a Dr. doing this before. The compassion and love he has for his patients is very apparent! He has always made me feel like I was his only patient, and his # 1 priority, even though I know he has many more patients.

The nurse or office staff called me everyday to check on me! Everyday was easier than the day before. I got around with my trusty walker, my BFF after surgery!

Dr Pousti told me that after surgery you go through an emotional state, but what found was not what I expected at all! I was expecting tears of pain and thought of regret, but that isn’t what I had at all! I never once thought why did I do this? The emotions I felt were eye opening to my life! The tears I shed were tears of love and joy and how lucky I am to have parents who took care of me for 6 weeks, a fiancé who supported me, no matter what I wanted to do, and my daughters, who stood by my side the whole time. Then the flowers, the cards, and the text messages came from friends, and clients thinking about me. The love I felt was overwhelming! Every tear I shed, were tears of joy of my life, my new body, and my new life to come!

This whole experience was the best thing I could have ever done! The most important thing is I truly feel like I was led to Dr. Pousti, and the results I got are amazing! He is a true artist of the body! He knows what will look the best and what is needed and not needed. He doesn’t just make you feel like he’s just your surgeon, but your friend, with your best interests in mind! The surgery is going to change my life for the better, and can’t thank him enough!

From my initial consultation to my 1 year post op appt it was the best experience imaginable. I had a breast augmentation with a lift. Dr. Pousti always made plenty of time for my questions and concerns and his staff was so caring (called everyday after surgery to make sure I was doing well and had no questions). I am so extremely pleased with my results, I couldn’t be happier! Dr Pousti is very professional but also very personable, my husband also liked him very much. I’ve recommended Dr Pousti to all of my friends!

Hello!  If you’re reading this, you’re likely still a bit apprehensive about breast augmentation.  Well your apprehension should cease now, as you have found the perfect surgeon/artist!  Breast augmentation is not only a surgical procedure, it also an art-form, and I am beyond thrilled with Dr. Pousti’s surgical/artistic skill-not to mention bedside manner.

For years, (yes years!) I had been sporadically reviewing breast augmentation results pictures on the internet.  After years of consistently going back to Dr. Pousti’s results (internet) pages, I decided to stop being such a chicken and finally make the call for a consultation.  Two months post-op I only wish I hadn’t been so apprehensive because I could’ve been enjoying my new girls years ago!!  Dr. Pousti’s work really speaks for itself, just look through the countless revision breast surgeries he’s performed-the results are astounding and consistently symmetric and natural.

The Process:  I went for my initial consultation and the staff were all SO friendly and helpful.  I brought a list of questions, mainly which kind of implant would fit my body; I already knew I wanted to go under the muscle.  Dr. Pousti knew immediately that silicone would work best for my body type so I trusted his professional opinion.  After I told him what size I was going for, he began to complete my sentences for me-he knew exactly what I didn’t know I wanted.  He explained that on some thinner women, saline can ripple, and he even went so far as to introduce to me to a lady in the office who had saline implants from another surgeon that had rippled over time and she was having Dr. Pousti perform revision surgery.  He went into detail about placement and volume in various places.

At that same initial consultation I either met or over heard all the future patients say they were referred to him by several people.   I even met a woman whom had traveled all the way from Austria to have him do her surgery.  She was 2 days post-op and extremely enthusiastic and pleased with her results.  She said 3 of her friends in Austria had recommended him.  I also met a woman from Chicago who had 2 friends who were also Pousti’s patients.   Additionally, many of his staff said they were also patients at one time, so I knew I was in the right place!  I had a good gut feeling about Dr. Pousti and I was absolutely right to follow my intuition.

On my second consultation I cracked a joke saying I wished my surgery date was tomorrow so I didn’t have to wait any longer.  Dr. Pousti said, “Well I just had a cancellation for tomorrow. Let’s see if we can get you in.” He then told his staff member to call the surgery center and ‘make it happen’, and she did!!!  I was SO excited!  I lined up a ride for the next day, and then next thing I knew, I was at the surgery center at 7am the next day!!

Surgery day:  Let me first just say-ladies, let the surgeon take the wheel.  He went to the top schools in the country and his expertise are to be heeded.  Trust his eye and his expertise; he knows exactly what is best for his patients.  On the day of the procedure, we again discussed the approximate size I desired, but I told him to ultimately determine exactly what cc. measurement was best once I was in surgery.  I trusted him completely to make that decision for me and I am so glad I did.  I said I wanted to be a D or close to a DD.  I am now a 34DD, he used 475 cc.  I was originally a 34B and it’s so nice to finally have some boobs!!  Trust his expertise and you will not be disappointed!


Testimonial:

During high school, I felt very self-conscious of my breasts. I wanted to feel sexy and curvy in all the right places but I couldn’t because I always felt that my breasts were a bit on the smaller side (a B cup to be exact).  I was buying the “Miraculous” bras from Victoria’s Secret that would boost my breasts up to 2 cup sizes. Needless to say, it was embarrassing when my breasts would look way smaller when those helpful bras came off or when I wore sexy bikinis. It bothered me for quite some time, so I started to do some research. I went through a couple of consultations with different plastic surgeons, but Dr. Pousti was the only one that stood out to me as the best. This man knows exactly what he is doing!

I walked into his Murrieta office and was greeted very warmly by all of the beautiful staff. Vanessa, the office manager, is an absolute sweetheart. She made me feel so comfortable and answered all of my questions with a smile. Now that I think about it, Vanessa has been there since the very first day of my whole process.  Thank you for that, Love. I was also even given the opportunity to meet an actual patient that was there for a post-op appointment. After speaking with her and seeing just how gorgeous her breasts were, I was even more confident about Dr. Pousti and what he can do for me. I literally scheduled the date of my operation that day.  The entire process was so easy and quick.

Throughout my next few appointments with Dr. Pousti, he did everything he could to make sure that he understood what it was that I wanted from my surgery. I brought many pictures from online that I liked so that he would get a feel of what it was that I wanted. When the day of the surgery came, I was so nervous! The hospital staff was very sweet and assured me that I would be just fine. A few hours later, I woke up on a hospital bed and felt absolutely no pain. I was just sleepy and felt a great pressure on my chest. I was bedridden for the next couple of days, but within a week, I was feeling pretty much back to normal.

It has been almost six months since my operation, and I don’t regret a thing! My breasts still have a bit more settling to do but I absolutely love them.  It doesn’t hurt that my boyfriend loves them too! My skin is a bit sensitive so I do have a bit of scarring under my right breast. At my appointment today, Dr. Pousti told me that if I am not satisfied with the way the scar has healed after it has fully matured, he would help me cut the scar out. What really got to me is that Dr. Pousti would do what he can to make sure that I am happy. In fact, every single post-op appointment with him has been most attentive and special. I am so grateful for that because I am sure most doctors would care less long after the surgery.

Because of Dr. Pousti, I have never felt more sexy and confident! You really have changed my life and I cannot thank you enough.

First and foremost I want to thank Dr. Pousti and his staff for such a positive experience.  Prior to meeting Dr. Pousti I had undergone two breast augmentation surgeries.  I had my first in 2005 and my second in 2007. In 2007 I maxed out what was the traditional “conservative” plastic surgeon’s recommendation with 800cc silicone implants. I loved the results but I went on to have two amazing daughters which I breastfed back to back in 2010 and 2011. My breasts needed some work.  They weren’t as perky anymore and I had lost some of my own breast tissue from nursing. I also had lateral displacement of my implants. Basically, when I laid on my back my breasts went into my armpits which left quite a considerable space in my cleavage area. I also knew I wanted to go bigger. Here is when the research started-I met with my former plastic surgeon and his opinion was that I needed a full anchor lift and all the scarring that came with that. I felt it was overkill and was saddened by the recommendation but I booked my surgery trusting his advice. After more thought, I decided to look into the option of over filled saline implants and maybe a little “pocket tightening”.  I first learned about Dr. Pousti from his AMAZING website.  The testimonials and photos said it all. I knew I needed to rethink my decision and have a phone consultation with him. I emailed photos (frontal and side) and he got back to me via telephone very promptly. To my excitement he told me he thought I didn’t need a lift. He also was willing to go as big as was safe for my body. I canceled my other surgery and put down my deposit for my surgery in San Diego. The website and staff had wonderful recommendations on which hotels they recommended their patients stay at and the hotels even offered a discount for being his patient. I was also given the name of a great after surgery recovery nurse who went on to do a phenomenal job of taking care of me post op for the first 24 hours. When I met Dr. Pousti for my pre op the day before surgery I instantly knew I had made the right decision to have my surgery performed by him. He is such a skilled, caring and kind person. At my pre op he recommended I have internal sutures placed to correct my implant displacement and promised he would take great care of me. I am absolutely insanely in LOVE with my new breasts. I would never trust my body to another plastic surgeon after meeting Dr. Pousti.  As a former model, I can tell you that I almost idolize the man for giving me back the breasts I had before having my children. I would recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone who wants the job done right. Flying out for surgery, especially alone, can be a scary thought but it is such a worthy investment. The moment you walk into his office-no matter the distance you have traveled-you will feel at home. Thank you Dr. Pousti for changing my body and my life.

I have to start out by saying that surgery, in general, is one of the top 3 scariest things in my book. Whether it’s elective surgery or emergency surgery, surgery is surgery and it’s a scary thought. I am a 20 something Mother of 3 kids and after going through pregnancy 3 times, it REALLY takes a toll on your body and your mind. NOTHING is the same as it was before and no matter how much exercise or how many diet plans you try out, you come to the realization that the only alternative is plastic surgery. Looking in the mirror everyday really killed me inside and it really took a toll on my self confidence. That low self confidence then started to play into my marriage to the point where I wouldn’t even feel comfortable in front of my husband (though I must say, he ALWAYS said I was still perfect).

I elected to look into plastic surgery to get an idea of what types were out there and what surgery would be best for me. I decided that the thing I wanted most (and that there were NO diets/exercise to “get back”) were my breasts. I felt that being a full C cup BEFORE children and now dealing with a very saggy B cup (I compare myself to a cow’s utters….honestly) was the problem for me. Mentally, I looked at it from this point of view….I have given my body up to bear 3 children and have given my 3 kids everything that a Mother can give. I have stood beside my Active Duty husband for the past 5 years as he deployed out many times for long periods of time. I have given everything a person can give and don’t regret a single thing that I have been through. In the end, and now that we have decided that we are done having kids and are focusing on raising our kids, I wanted to do something for myself. It was TIME for me to feel like a woman again.

Searching the internet for Plastic Surgeons was a very time consuming thing. I would spend every night on the computer searching and reviewing Doctors and their credentials. I would bookmark pages and pages of possible surgeons and look through hundreds of pictures of their work. When I finally felt that I had viewed all the surgeons that were out there I then started to look into their particular background, schooling, credentials, awards, malpractice lawsuits, experience, and LOADS of other ‘must haves”. I narrowed it down to just a few Doctors and then intensively looked into each other their reviews and end result pictures. I needed to see pictures of women who have the SAME issue as I am dealing with. I needed a woman who was my weight and height and a starting result with an ending result that fit me. I finally got the hit I needed and it was 1000% POSITIVE that the Doctor I wanted to meet was Dr. Pousti. I was SO excited at this point. I made an appointment and counted down the days to meet the person I was looking for this whole time.

Speeding things up a bit (going to TRY to make this short and sweet). I walked into the office and was warmly welcomed. The staff that worked with Dr. Pousti were extremely nice and professional and were happy to answer ANY crazy questions I had. I was examined by the Doctor and he told me that he’s not shy about turning people away if he feels that they are not the perfect candidate. He also said that if what I wanted was NOT practical and was something that he knew (from experience) would NOT be the best for me, he would be very honest and open about it. Having a family full of medical professionals, I know that this type of conversation was a very truthful trusting one. Dr. Pousti promised (and how many Doctors would actually use that word, now a days) that if I put my trust in him, he would make me proud. That was it! I knew in my bones that THIS was the person that I would, ultimately, put my life into the hands of. The rest of the appointment put me at ease and with the staff showing me pictures, answering my questions, giving me REAL input, seeing real life breast augmentations on some of the women there, and even speaking with other patients who were there for their follow-up appointments (who had just had my procedure done)…I was ready to go through with all this.

I was scheduled for my surgery about a month later and the initial leading up to the surgery was a scary one. I had never been put under nor had a surgery done. I was scared. VERY scared! The staff called a few times to make sure I was ok and to answer any questions before hand and to calm me down and talk me through everything. I also received a personal call from Dr. Pousti (which I missed but he left on my answering machine) telling me that I am in great hands and he promises (again) to be there for me the entire way and will hold my hand going through it all. He left his phone number and told me not to hesitate calling for any reason. I said a few prayers and ultimately left it up to God and the Doctor. A calmness rushed through me and I was instantly put at ease. I PROMISE YOU, that’s the TRUTH. I slept like a baby the night before surgery, which is funny because I didn’t sleep a single night through during the previous month. I went to the surgical center on my elected day and had the BEST surgical team I could have wished for. They were funny, and sensitive, and legitimately cared about me. I knew I was in great hands.

I had a breast lift with augmentation and am more than happy with the results. I could not have expected anything better than perfect and Dr. Pousti delivered just that and more. I am currently 3 weeks post op and I am beyond amazed at what I look like. I feel like I am a new me. Things could not be better. During my recovery, Dr Pousti’s staff would call daily to check up on me and answer questions and walk me through anything that I needed help on. They really made this experience the best it could be. I have been to 3 follow up appointments and everything is going the way it should. No issues what so ever. Dr. Pousti sees me at every appointment and takes the time to give me the one on one time I need to go over anything and everything that is happening. The staff is always so friendly and helpful and overall I feel they go above and beyond for me. I would do it all over again in a heart beat and this is coming from a person who wanted to go into surgery blindly (not know ANYTHING that was going to happen or be done) because I was that nervous about the entire idea of what I was planning to do. Dr. Pousti is the best of the best and to have something that is life changing left in the hands of 1 human being…that takes trust and compassion and that’s exactly what Dr. Pousti is all about. I would suggest ANYONE to visit Dr. Pousti and his staff and have the experience of your new life.

I wanted bigger and fuller breasts for a long time. Not happy the way certain clothes fit on me before, i.e. tube tops, t-shirts.

I had them done a little over a year ago and I am very satisfied. I was afraid of surgery since I’ve never had surgery in my life and I was 45 then! Surgery went well and quick. You have to stay on top of pain medications after surgery and take it EASY..the healing process is so important and takes time, so be very patient. I didn’t expect my new breasts to change my life, but they did. In a very good way.

Don’t do it because you think it will change your life or make you a better person. You will never be happy if that’s the case. If you decide to do it, be strong and get some support from a friend. Wear a good light bra when you go to bed at night to keep them looking good.

I highly recommend Dr. Pousti and his amazing staff if you are considering breast augmentation. I was extremely comfortable with him. My husband accompanied me to all my consultation appointments. He also found Dr. Pousti very friendly and knowledgeable. What I liked about Dr. Pousti was that he never pushed me into either saline or silicone where other doctors I consulted with wanted me to do silicone. They kept putting down saline saying it was not very natural and I wouldn’t like it at all. Of course, silicone costs a little more, so I didn’t feel comfortable with their “salesy” approach. On the other hand, Dr. Pousti answered all my questions. During the consultation, he even let me MEET his patients that just had surgery! This was very powerful for me since it showed he had a lot of confidence in his work. I was also referred by a friend of mine who had work done with him, as did her other friends. No doubt, I was still scared of surgery, but I joined a site called justbreastimplants.com and got to talk to many women who were in the same boat as myself getting ready to get breast implants. This made me feel even more comfortable with my decision. I still believe that if you are considering breast augmentation, please talk to a lot of surgeons first, but also consider Dr. Pousti. You have to feel comfortable with your surgeon and his staff. It also helps to get some support from someone (like I did with my husband)

From a very happy & satisfied patient

There are so many positive things to say about Dr Pousti and his staff that I barely know where to start, so here is my story from the beginning.

I am in my mid-20s, and ever since I could remember, I wanted larger breasts.  Naturally I was an A cup (although Dr Pousti and other doctors I saw believed I was at least a small B, so maybe I was wearing the wrong bra size, who knows?), but always wanted to “upgrade” to the “perfect C cup”.  Once I graduated school and landed on my feet with a little extra money saved up, I decided to actually look into the breast augmentation procedure.

I was very very skeptical and nervous about getting breast implants, after all, there were no physical deformities and I did have some breast tissue that could easily be manipulated to look larger.  My worst fear was getting a botch boob job!  I obsessed constantly and carefully critiqued every doctor and his work before deciding to go and meet any of them.  A tip to women looking at doctor reviews:  a doctor can have 100 excellent reviews for nose jobs or tummy tucks, but that doesn’t mean anything if you are getting a breast augmentation!  Be sure to concentrate on the right reviews and make sure your doctor is a specialist in what procedure you are having done!

I saw 2 doctors before finding Dr Pousti.  From the minute I met him, I knew he was the right doctor for me.  The other doctors were nice, but we just didn’t click.  I feel like Dr Pousti was the only doctor I talked to that understood what my end goal was and then some.  He asked me to bring in pictures of what I wanted my results to be, which is what I HIGHLY recommend even if you decide to go with another doctor.  As he told me, my idea of a C cup and his idea of a C cup could be completely different.  A visual representation of what I actually wanted is the only way to really get accurate results.  To my surprise, the photos I brought in were actually patients who ended up with a D cup or larger!  Dr Pousti actually takes the pictures into the operating room with him so he can get your results the closest he can to what you want.  I will admit it was a little nerve racking going into the OR not knowing a size beforehand, but after it was all over, I wouldn’t have done it any other way.  The other doctors used a bra in their office and just put the implant over my breast and “guaranteed” me they would be the size I wanted…WRONG!  You can’t put an implant under your shirt and expect the final result to be accurate.  Everyone’s body is different and sticking an implant under a shirt will not give you an accurate end size.  The sizes that the other doctors wanted to use were significantly smaller than what I actually ended up with and I would have probably ended up getting them redone.

Dr Pousti is very honest.  If he does not feel he can get an A+ result, he will not take that patient.  He tells you exactly what to expect and lets you know upfront what the risks are and also that even though you have a perfect image of what you want to be, it is not always possible since everyone is different.  No other doctor I visited even muttered those words to me.  I know putting your body image in the hands of basically a complete stranger is very unsettling, but one visit with Dr Pousti and his staff, your mind will be at ease.  He even lets you talk to actual patients who are there on appointments.  You can see his work first hand and given the privacy to ask those patients for their honest opinion and for their advice.  What other doctor will let you do that?  Knowing that he has such confidence and skill in his work that he lets you talk to actual patients really says a lot for what kind of doctor he is and how good his work is.

The staff is always pleasant and patient.  After my surgery, I must have called every other day asking if what I saw was normal, they never complained, never were rude, and were very professional on the phone and in the office.  They understood that this was the first time I ever had any type of surgery and my questions and concerns were normal, even though they may hear them every day.  They call you every day after your surgery to make sure you are doing well, even over the weekend!  Dr Pousti is also very patient and understanding, I even requested a second consultation appointment before my surgery so my husband could come and meet him, and he was more than happy to do so.   He answered all our questions and was very understanding to both of us.

Thank God I found Dr Pousti!  He is a specialist in breast augmentation and does dozens every week or so.  By the day of surgery, I had decided numbers don’t mean anything to me; I was no longer going to concentrate on what size implant I was getting.  I gave him my pictures and told him my expectations, he is the specialist, not me, and so I was going to let him do his job based on what I had told him.  I hired him because he is the best at what he does and I was going to trust him to do a superb job on me.  The final size we agreed upon before going into surgery:  Keep em’ guessing.  I didn’t want my new girls to look super fake, but I didn’t want it to look like I didn’t get anything done.  My end result is just that!  The surgery center is great, the anesthesiologist and Dr Pousti hold your hand while you are sedated.  Dr Pousti uses sizers in the OR to find out what size you need to get to your requested size before putting in the permanent implant.  I wouldn’t recommend anything else!  Don’t settle on a size before going into surgery, because honestly, you won’t know what it will look like until the job is actually done!

Currently I wear a 34D in Victoria’s Secret, depending on the style a DD!  With anything else, I would have been super unhappy.  I have been out in San Diego and Las Vegas and have gotten compliments from other WOMEN on how perfect my girls look.  Not to brag, but Dr Pousti did give me the perfect breasts!

I have been wanting to get breast augmentation for 13 years. Over the past several years I went on numerous consultations with different doctors, however no doctor felt like the right one. Finally at age 28 I decided that this was something I really wanted to do and I set out to find the right surgeon. During my initial consultation with Dr. Pousti he immediately made me comfortable and put he at ease. He took the time to thoroughly discuss my desired goals and to explain to me what I could realistically expect from the surgery. Whereas other doctors I had consulted with discussed what “bra size” I wanted to be, Dr. Pousti’s focus was on what look I wanted to achieve. Upon leaving the consultation I immediately knew Dr. Pousti was the doctor for me. I am now 5 months post op and have never felt more beautiful and confident in the way I look. I couldn’t be happier with the results and I would recommend Dr. Pousti highly.

Dear Dr. Pousti and Staff,

I cannot begin to tell you how pleasant and truly life-changing my experience has been with all of you. I am so blessed to have found the best surgical team in San Diego by far!

I have always been very apprehensive about having a breast augmentation or any surgery for that matter. But through all my nerves, doubts, and uncertainties, I made it through comfortably and confidently because of Dr. Pousti and his amazing staff, who were there for me absolutely any time I needed them. There was never a time they did not express genuine care and concern for my well being, and I truly appreciate that.

When I consulted with Dr. Pousti about having breast augmentation surgery, I came out feeling great about myself and my decision. I felt supported and informed. Most of all, I knew immediately that I can trust Dr. Pousti with this important procedure. I felt that I was being looked out for my best interest and well being first and foremost.

His staff has been truly supportive and uplifting with every encounter. In the days prior to surgery, I was very anxious and had a lot of questions. All my questions have been answered, all my worries have been suppressed, and on the day of surgery I felt more prepared than ever! My nerves were gone, because I knew that I had no doubts ahead of me. Even as I lay on the operating room table, I see Dr. Pousti there watching over me before I go to sleep, and the nurses holding my hand. It was the most comforting thing to feel cared for like that in the moments before the procedure. When I woke up, the nurses came to check on me and make sure I was comfortable. I looked down to see my new breasts and immediately got a huge smile on my face! I had finally done it!

As soon as I got home, I got a call from Dr. Pousti’s staff to see how I am doing. Indeed I was impressed with that kind of personal follow-up! I got a call for the next several days thereafter to check on me and make sure I was recovering smoothly. Again, I felt truly cared for and it made the few days of recovery so much better than I could expect.

I now come in to visit Dr. Pousti and his staff periodically, and I always look forward to my follow-ups! This entire team is exceptional. They are always so excited to see how I am doing and I feel more like we have made friends of each other since the first day I walked in. They even surprised me with flowers on one of my visits!! I was speechless at their level of care and thoughtfulness. Again, there are no words to express my gratitude to you all!

I feel incredible about myself now. I have always felt a bit lacking in my self confidence, but now I feel so much happier with my decision. I have been modeling here and there before I got my procedure done, but I am seeking more and more modeling opportunities now that I have my breast augmentation. I can fit into my clothes so much better, and I can actually fill a bikini now!

Most of all, I have a renewed sense of confidence that I have never had before. Trusting Dr. Pousti with my experience was one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I would do it all over again without a second thought. I am forever grateful to you, Dr. Pousti, and your staff is one-of-a-kind. You have all made this life-changing experience one of the best I have ever had.

Very, very sincerely

Before working in the Intensive Care Unit, I worked at a plastic surgery recovery house in La Mesa and La Jolla, California. There I took care of all types of patients recovering from their desired surgeries, including an abundance of mommy patients who had tummy tucks and breast augmentations.  At the time I was on the nursing staff recovering patients coming from multiple plastic surgeons operating in the San Diego area.  However, I found myself always so excited whenever I heard I was getting a patient coming from Dr. Pousti!  What made his patients stand out the most from all others were indeed the quality of the work and the lack of complications his patients experienced.  This made life much easier for the nursing staff.  Thus, I knew when I was ready to get my “mommy makeover” the only person I would trust my body, my life with, was Dr. Pousti.

Besides taking care of patients, I am a twenty seven year old mother of two beautiful babies.  Although having my children young, and living a healthy lifestyle, I managed to gain an extremely large amount of weight with my pregnancies.  After both deliveries, I eventually lost all the weight I gained while pregnant.  Unfortunately, the loose skin was there to stay.  For years I felt like a mother kangaroo with a big empty sack with no baby in it.  I had even have had my own patients in the past ask me when I was expecting… two years after having my last baby!  It didn’t matter how thin I got, the loose skin was still there.  After giving time and exercise a fair shot, it was clear to me that it was time to take care of business, and finally my turn to become one of Dr. Pousti’s patients.

Meeting with Dr. Pousti and his staff for the first time was such a wonderful experience.  They were proficient, personal and understanding of my concerns and thoughts.  His staff consists of friendly experienced personnel, and Dr. Pousti‘s bedside manner was pronounced. Together we discussed the results that I was looking for and in solution the finest way we could attain them.  We decided that I would achieve the best results getting an extended tummy tuck in which the incision would go all the way around from front to back. Also, I wanted a breast augmentation to fill the loose skin in my breast area, and decided to go with silicone implants.

My surgery went smoothly with absolutely no complications as expected.  The first week of recovery was the most challenging as I adjusted to my new body.  Nevertheless, I had minimal discomfort.  By the third week post-op I was off my pain medication, standing up straight and driving my daughter to dance class.  At six weeks post-op I started running again, and never have I ever felt so grand in my life!

I can’t express my gratitude enough.  Dr. Pousti and his staff took exceptional care of me, as I am sure he does with all his other patients.  I give my utmost recommendation to any vigorous woman who is considering getting an extravagant “mommy makeover”.  I am extremely satisfied with my results, and I thank Dr. Pousti for working his magic on me.

Sincerely,

A Very Satisfied Patient

“Oh, I’M going to get my boobs done when I’m done having kids!”, how many times have you heard a friend, or yourself utter those words? I know those words had come out of my mouth many times without contemplating what “surgery” entailed.    Now, at age 30, after two kids, those words were knocking at my door, no longer a want but an actual need.  I knew something had changed about me but I couldn’t quite figure it out.  With exercise my legs were back, with diet my stomach had gone back but my breast were not the same at all.  I had had two kids and breastfed exclusively for a year and my pre-baby breast size of a small C cup was now an A.  Not only did they look unattractive but I could definitely tell that it had taken a toll on my self-esteem.  This is when I started really paying attention to others, making phone calls and researching to make the change I wanted and needed.  I found out that three of my relatives had had breast augmentation surgery and all of them had chosen Dr.Pousti as their surgeon.  The first women of the three, which made me feel the most comfortable, is actually an ER nurse whom felt that his education, professionalism, and surgery center were as close to her work environment as possible.  His education speaks for itself, he has an amazing dedication to his practice and it shows.  Upon meeting Dr.Pousi I felt very relaxed with his open demeanor and his helpful staff.  The actual surgery was very smooth with a comforting staff and clean surgery center. I’m two weeks post surgery now and am very happy with the results.  I have the look of my pre-baby body back and am very thankful to Dr.Pousti.

As a physician, I was looking for an experienced surgeon who had both the technical skill and personal rapport to accomplish the cosmetic results I was looking for. He was able to work around my busy schedule and I was very pleased with the results of my surgery. His staff was very courteous and professional and I appreciated the follow up calls.


Testimonial:

My experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff has been nothing short of spectacular. The personalized care that I received from them was much appreciated and thorough. The staff is not only knowledgeable, but skilled as well. Having never undergone any type of surgery made me quite apprehensive. They were aware of my concerns and went the extra mile to insure my comfort and ease. The day prior to my procedure, I received a call from Dr. Pousti asking if I had any further concerns or questions. By this time all of my concerns had already been addressed. My surgery went as to be expected. My healing time was what they’d previously stated and the outcome was beautiful. The entire process was a really positive experience. I’d visited other surgeons prior to choosing Dr. Pousti. I have no doubt that I made the best decision possible when I chose Dr Pousti and his staff.

Dr. Pousti and his staff are very personal while being very professional at the same time. I highly recommend Dr. Pousti to all who ask.

Him and his staff are always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Dear Dr. Pousti,

I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing work you did for my breasts. The results are dramatically better than before.

When I first met you and your staff, I knew it had to be you to perform my surgery. I could tell that with your honesty with me in going over how extensive it was going to be and that it would be a challenge, your being double board certified, your knowledge and experience of the techniques that were needed for my surgery, and listening to and understanding of my concerns, as well as time you spent with me answering my questions and explaining the procedure you would do, you had to be the one to perform this. To fix me, really. Also to know of and see the pictures of girls that you performed this type of surgery on before, and their incredible results, just sealed the deal for me.

When my sister told me that her and two of our friends were considering getting a breast augmentation. I told them they just had to meet you. I actually said “ If he can fix my boobs with how bad they are right now, imagine how amazing yours will look with it being your first surgery!” After meeting you and your staff, and learning of your certifications, they felt the same way too. So all four of us ended up going to the pre-op consultations together!

Having our surgeries split between two days was so nice; to experience it all together and see the results together.

I was so scared to go through surgery again, since my first one with that doctor in Mexico was really bad. Terrified actually. But you reassured me that you’ve done this before, and explained all of the things you were going to do, how my healing time (post-op) would be, etc. Your confidence in the surgery and results of it, and patience and consideration of my feelings really reassured me that I was going to be okay. My husband helped also by reminding me of what you’ve said any time my worries came back again. The surgery center was so wonderful. Michelle, my nurse, was so sweet. I felt like I was on my way to get a facial and massage the way she was so caring and trying to help me relax, not surgery! I have never been to a physician’s office or surgery center before, and felt so… taken care of. Like I was the top priority, as if you had only my surgery to perform—when in reality I know that you have many patients and surgeries. I just loved, and still do!, the quality of time and attention you’ve given to me and my friends.

All your “ Gray hairs and sleepless nights” I caused you paid off, Dr. Pousti. My ‘girls’ are amazing now. The results are so beautiful; my husband definitely thinks so too. With the way they looked before, when you had me bring in photos of breasts I liked ( size, shape, cleavage), I didn’t think my results would be even near those photos. I figured they were just an idea; a goal of what I liked. So I thought ‘at least my breasts won’t have the symmastia, bottoming out, and capsulation anymore’. But no, they do look like the photos I brought in! I can’t believe the difference. They even feel better too! They’re definitely above and beyond what my expectations were, and I am so very thankful for that.

If they were to ever have an award ceremony for Surgeon’s (which they should!), you would definitely be awarded with ‘Best Breast Revision Surgery’ for ‘ Attention to Detail, Using the Most Current Techniques, and Quality of the Patients Entire Experience.’ Thank you Dr. Pousti. Myself, my sister Iris, and our friends Stephanie, and Lacey all appreciate our results so much, and the entire experience leading up to it.

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.

Following the surgery it was strongly recommended that I stay a few nights at “The Hideaway”. It is a privately run center staffed by the nicest & most helpful nurses. I found it to be an invaluable way to ease into self care.

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’.

“I have had ‘bags’ under my eyes most of my life, and for some reason was hesitant to do any kind of surgery, because I had a fear of not looking natural. So finally at age 42, I decided to look into it because I knew I would look a lot younger and fresher if the puffiness was gone. I consulted 2 other doctors in La Jolla first, but decided to look into it more and after hearing about Dr. Pousti, decided to also see him, even though his office was way further than the other doctors, and from my home in La Jolla.

From the first visit I found him an extremely honest, knowledgeable and trusting man; just the kind of good feeling you hope to get when you’re going for such a big decision. His office staff also gave me a very positive feeling, where you could see everyone was involved in some part of the patient care, and acted like one big family.

The other great thing that helped me choose him was his website. I needed to see before and after pictures of other patients with my situation, and his pictures and explanations were very helpful in making my decision firmer.

The staff and the doctor explained the pre-op and surgery procedure very clearly, and the surgery itself was probably the most ‘painless’, easy part!! I basically just said ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ to the doctor, not remembering any pain or discomfort during, or, after the surgery, to the point that I did NOT even take an Advil or Tylenol, let alone the strong pain meds that I had bought!! That part was amazing; I have taken more pain meds from a dental procedure!

I did the procedure a few months ago, and I have not been happier about my decision (except regretting why I didn’t do it sooner!). I look a lot fresher and younger, and I get compliments from everyone who’s seen me (even those who didn’t want me to go through it, saying that I looked fine anyways). They can’t help but be pleased with the results and have to admit it’s the best thing I’ve done. They’re so happy with Dr. Pousti’s job they keep telling me I have to get him a big gift!!!

And of course now that I’m done with the surgery, I hear that he’s opening a new office in La Jolla!! I wish he’d done that a few months ago!! But he was worth all the long drives, and I would have gone even further to see him. Some things just have to be done with the best doctor, and whom you trust the most. Dr. Pousti proved to be above and beyond all that I had heard about him”.

As with anyone who is thinking of having cosmetic surgery, safety is a great concern, and then there are the results. You want to know that at the end of it all, you have the results you were looking for. I spoke with several doctors prior to coming to Dr. Pousti and I did my research on cosmetic surgery. After my first meeting with Dr Pousti, I knew that I found the person I wanted to do my breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Dr. Pousti took the time to explain the process and was more than willing to answer all my questions. He wanted to make sure that I would be happy with the results and reassured me that he would do all that could be done to make it a safe experience. During my initial appointment and all subsequent appointments, I had the opportunity to meet with some of Dr. Poust’s patients who were there for follow-ups. I was able to see his work and ask questions. I found this to be extremely helpful and it gave me great confidence in his abilities.

Well, it’s been 4 months and I have to tell you that I couldn’t be more pleased with the way I look and how well I feel. The first two months are a bit difficult, but as the discomfort begins to subside and the swelling goes down, you can see Dr. Pousti’s amazing work. I have been told that my breast look very natural and have been asked, ” Have you lost weight, you look great. I think that says a lot about Dr. Pousti’s skills.

My experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff has been great. They not only demonstrated professionalism throughout the entire process, but also were very friendly and sensitive to my needs. If I have any other surgery done, it will be done by Dr Pousti.

To the BEST plastic surgeon and his team!!

I had a breast augmentation in September 2007 and I am very pleased with the results!!  Before my surgery I was a very active 20 year old and enjoyed riding horses competitively, running barrels, as well as keeping up with two boys under 6 as a live-in nanny.   Dr. Pousti and other patients assured me that I would still be able to do the things I loved, I would just have boobs!  Boy, were they right! I think I was able to climb up and sit on my horses, on my own power, in 3 short weeks! I thought that was pretty amazing!  I gave myself another month before returning to my usual routine to give my body all the time it needed to heal fully. I literally had no cleavage before my surgery and I went to a size C.  I still have no trouble riding my horses, running, and living an active life style.  The only marked difference in my life is that now I enjoy shopping for bras, swim suits, and cute dresses!   I had a very small bust before my surgery so I had stretch marks on both sides but they went away very quickly as did the pain post-op.   The surgery left very minimal scars, about ¼ inches long in diameter under each nipple.  I want to personally thank Dr. Pousti and his team for making me feel welcome in their office and for giving me confidence after the surgery and peace of mind from start to finish.  I strongly encourage women who are considering breast augmentation to do themselves a favor and put their trust in the best: Dr. Pousti!

Thanks for everything

Okay – writing this review means I’m publicly announcing my first (and hopefully only) trip into the world of plastic surgery.  After researching many doctors on line and getting referrals from people I know who have had breast augmentation, I decided to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pousti.

My first appoint was at the La Jolla office – very nice and discreet office with overly friendly staff.  The staff makes you feel totally comfortable with out making you feel like they’re sizing you up.

First one of the gals take you into a room and explain the difference between silicone and saline implants and discuss the process of the surgery with you.  They also show you albums of past patients so that you can get a feel of what exactly you are looking for.  You are given a packet with testimonials and phone numbers of previous patients which you are welcome to contact.

I was lucky enough to be there when one of his other patients, who was 3 weeks post-op, was in for a check-up and was willing to “share”.  She looked amazing and at that point I decided I had found my doctor.

DR. Pousti is super nice and charming, made me feel totally at ease and wants to make sure your having surgery for the right reasons.

I scheduled my procedure that day.

I returned for my pre-op appt about 2 weeks before my scheduled procedure to meet with Dr. Pousti to go over sizing.  I had been scared by a few of my friends about going too big, but had talked to other people who’s only regret was not going big enough.  I was honest with Dr. Pousti telling him that my “lady lumps” were not in the same place they were when I was 20ish and that I was a non-bra wearing gal and wanted my girls to be perky again.  He advised me that he could totally achieve the look that I wanted and that the first pix I chose were a little conservative – I was nervous but totally agreed.  If I was going to pay for a boob job, I wanted to have results I didn’t regret.  Again being totally personable, he told me if I needed to see or talk to him again before my surgery, that I was more than welcome to call, email or come in again.  I did converse with him again over email first, then by phone – he promptly responded.

Day of the procedure, I was extremely nervous – I had never had any type of surgery before.  His staff at Alvarado was extremely nice and caring.  I remember being wheeled into the OR by his cute nurse Mike, then having his anesthesiologist  telling me I’d be in a happy place within 15 seconds, while Dr. Pousti held my hand.  My biggest fear is waking up during surgery and seeing my body cut open – UUHHGG!

Next thing I knew, I woke up in the recovery room and was automatically noticed by a nurse and asked about my pain, then given more happy drugs through my IV.  After about an hour in recovery I was moved into another room and my hubby was called to come see me.  I was on a good one, given some ice chips and then free to go after all my stats where checked one last time.  I also had a little flower arrangement from Dr. Pousti and his staff – very sweet.

That afternoon and everyday that followed, they called my hubby to make sure everything was going okay.  They also scheduled for me to come in have the bandages removed.  I was so surprised at how minimal the incision was – and Dr. Pousti assured me that although they weren’t pretty just yet (only 3 days after), that they were going to be beautiful – and I could actually picture that.

I then received a call the next day scheduling an appt to come in to be taught how to massage my new additions.

I am so surprised at how lovely and thorough everyone in his office has been.  My recovery is long from over, but I am definitely going to recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone who asks for a referral.

I highly recommend Dr. Pousti and his staff!! I am in a design field and know design is in the details. Dr. Pousti listened to exactly what I wanted and delivered. I had a breast augmentation Sept 3rd. going from a small A (very little breast tissue) to a mid C. They are perfectly proportioned to my body and look phenomenally natural – exactly what I asked for! The whole experience was painless. Of course you feel uncomfortable after surgery but I was off pain meds in 3 days. I was supremely impressed that he doesn’t use an instrument to build the pocket for the implant. He gently builds the pocket with his fingers to keep nerve damage to a minimum – I had sensation back within weeks. The worst part was sleeping sitting up! I had previously consulted with another plastic surgeon before finding Dr. Pousti. After looking through tons of before & after pictures, meeting with his wonderful staff and of course Dr. Pousti – I knew he was the man for the job!

Thank you Dr. Pousti and staff (Sorry, I can’t remember everyone’s’ names but Daisy was awesome!) You guys are truly the best!!

I was referred to Dr. Pousti from a long time family friend who could not say enough great things about her personal experience with him and his staff. Upon my first visit to his La Mesa office, I was warmly received by his all female staff.  Although I was unprepared to answer many of the questions asked as I was just recently seriously considering surgery, his staff was very patient and understanding.  I received answers to questions I never even would have thought to ask! Dr. Pousti and his staff were very honest and respectful.  I was able to see and hear other patient’s experiences in person without the doctor or staff in the room to ensure my comfort.  I left his office after my first visit knowing he was going to be my doctor and I booked the surgery shortly after!  My next visit was for my pre-op appointment and I became very nervous during the explanation of all the pre-op/post-op instructions.  However, the minute Dr. Pousti walked in the room, I was put at ease.  He has a very calming presence about him and a way to ensure you that he is going to be taking very good care of you.  On the day of my surgery, my pre-op nurse was sweet, bubbly, and very gentle.  Dr. Pousti came to talk to me before the surgery and told me not to worry as they have done thousands and thousands of these procedures.  While I felt that was reassuring enough, he then said “but today we will be doing our best”.  If I had any reservations at that point, he blew them away!  He left the pre-op room asking me what kind of music I liked and said he would see me in the OR.  It was time! I kissed my boyfriend and walked to the OR with his nurse.  I knew there was no turning back now!  I got on the table and positioned myself.  There were several women working fast to prep me and the room.  Dr. Pousti must have seen my eyes wide and wandering.  He came to the side of the bed, held my hand in his and rubbed my shoulder with his other.  He said “I’m right here, and I’ll be here the whole time”.  I felt the anesthesia enter my IV, I looked up at Dr. Pousti and he said “turn up that country music”, I remember smiling and I was out!  I woke up in the recovery room, the nurse assisted me with my clothes and got me ready to go as she instructed my sister and boyfriend on my aftercare.

All post-op visits to Dr. Pousti’s office have been amazing! The staff called me every day for two weeks after my surgery to check on me! My recovery was quick and smooth.  I am overwhelmingly pleased with my results!  I feel as though Dr. Pousti knew EXACTLY what I wanted without me even having to thoroughly explain myself.  He is a truly gifted person and the most humble, gentile doctor I have had the pleasure of meeting.  His staff is professional, fun, sweet, honest, and genuine.  I have referred him to many clients and friends of mine and I would encourage anyone and everyone to consult him prior to making a final decision on any surgery!  Thank you Dr. Pousti and thank you to all the fabulous women you have as your staff!

Breast Augmentation – I was nervous at first but it all went away on the day of my consultation with Dr. Pousti and his staff. I was immediately comfortable with him and his staff. Dr. Pousti is a down to earth doctor who listens to what you want and he will explain everything you need and want to know. His entire practice is all about the patient.

After three previous consultations in the SD area Dr. Pousti was the last I saw and I just knew right away he was the one I wanted to perform my breast augmentation. Working in the health care field I can say from the consultation to post-op I had the best experience a patient could have. The first time I saw my breasts I was in love with them and even though there was swelling they were perfect!

The office calls you everyday 2 weeks post-op to ensure you are doing well and if you have any questions that may arise during your recovery. I had surgery 7 weeks ago and now I am out of the SD area so I am able to keep in touch with Dr. Pousti’s office via email. If I had to do it all over again Dr. Pousti is my number one choice!

Dear Dr. Pousti and all the Girls!

I want to thank you all for being dedicated professionals yet having a warm and caring environment for those of us under duress of surgery issues! From my first contact with your office receptionist, I had a hunch that I had chosen the right surgeon for my breast surgery repairs! Then Dr. Pousti, when you took the time to call me personally on Saturday to discuss my procedure issues and options. I was convinced I had found the best surgeon—–I looked no further!! Knowing I wasn’t very enthused about breast implant repair/replacement you put me at ease with your down to earth, casual, personal nature-that I no longer was afraid. Even though you have a very busy practice I never felt rushed or “just a patient”. Especially you and Vanessa made me feel like an old friend. Thank you so much for caring! The surgery and recovery was much easier than I anticipated-what a relief! And I was very impressed that every day for the first week after surgery someone from your office called to make sure I was doing well!! The medical world could learn a lot from how you conduct your business.

Oh—-and did I mention I love my new breasts and so does Irwin. We’re off to sail around the Bahamas! See you in the fall for a brief check-up and “after” photo if you want.

Talk about full circle…

I began my plastic surgery adventure by reading many of the testimonials on Dr. Pousti’s website.  Now here I am, six months later, lucky enough to share my thoughts and opinions on such an amazing doctor.

At the beginning of my search, I was still undecided whether I just wanted a breast lift or a tummy tuck in conjunction with the lift.  The several doctors I interviewed prior to Dr. Pousti pressured me to do both procedures.  I knew I had found the right doctor when the exact opposite happened when I spoke with Dr. Pousti.  He urged me to consider the benefits of both procedures but did not pressure me in any way.  In other words, he wanted what was best for ME – not best for his bank account! In the end, I chose to do both procedures and on March 1, 2011, I had my mommy-makeover (a tummy tuck and a breast lift).  And while surgery is never easy, his office and the surgery center he uses, gave us all the information we needed to ensure post-op success.  Everything from setting us up with a nurse to come home with us, to providing the appropriate medicine to make me comfortable, to calling every day to check on us – all things to make my surgery as easy as possible. Due to no fault of Dr. Pousti, I encountered a minor set-back when I developed an infection in my abdominal incision site.  Here’s where Dr. Pousti and his staff distinguished themselves as exceptional care-givers.  The follow up care and concern for my well-being gave me peace of mind that everything was going to be ok… and it was!  I had a beautiful result and will never regret having the work done. Had my surgical procedure gone perfectly, this would have been a great experience.  Based on their care and response to my complications, I now feel like this chapter in my life was extraordinary.  I continue to be a loyal patient using other services his office offers, knowing that whatever I need to do, it will be handled with the utmost expertise and great care.

If you are considering *any* type of cosmetic surgery, look no further…

I went to Dr.Pousti in April 2010 for a breast augmentation. He was recommended to me by a neighbor of mine. During the consultation I was able to meet many women who were in the office for appointments. All the women has just gotten there breasts done. It was nice to know right away what his work looked like first hand, I called back next day to book a surgery day. On the day of surgery everything went very smooth and was easy. No pain at all or nausea when I woke up just a short 60 minutes after surgery had started. The pain killer and muscle relaxers did the trick the first week. No pain at all. I stayed on top of the meds and the first week went well. Every day after surgery someone from the office called to check on me. It was very reassuring to knwo they cared about my recovery and wanted to make sure I had no questions or concerns. A few sharp pains on one side (due to the nerves reconnecting), but nothing that brought me to my knees. A year post op I went back for scar revision. I had gotten such big implants that my skin stretched so much I had a little bit bigger scar then I wanted. The surgery was painless, with the exception of nerves, and only took about 20 minutes. I am 2 weeks post op from the scar revision and they look amazing! You can barely see the scar at all. I love the size of my breats and can’t wait to go back after having kids to go bigger and get a lift if I need it. What i love most, is all of these post ops and scar revision are covered in the initial cost. Totally worth it! I love Dr. Pousti and his staff.

I had a great experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff during the entire process…from pre surgery appointments to post surgery appointments.

I cannot thank Dr. Pousti and his wonderful staff enough for the experience that I had during my journey through breast augmentation. Dr. Pousti came highly recommended from my best friend, who also had breast augmentation with Dr. Pousti and his team. I had thought about breast augmentation surgery for 10 years, and have been to several consultations throughout the years. After having my twins, I was left with saggy and deflated breasts and wanted this surgery even more so than before.  I decided to schedule my consultation with Dr. Pousti because my best friend works in the medical field and I trusted her judgment in choosing a board certified surgeon that would perform this surgery on me. I was so confident in Dr. Pousti and his staff that I scheduled for my breast surgery right away.

My story is a bit unique in that my Mother and I had breast surgery performed by Dr. Pousti on the same day. We have gone through this journey together since day one and neither of  us had ever imagined that our experiences would be this positive. I have always gone to my Mother for advice throughout life and I knew that if she trusted Dr Pousti, so did I. Every time we have had an appointment, we are treated with the utmost respect and are made to feel extremely comfortable. Dr. Pousti and the girls that work for him are the friendliest people I have ever come into contact with in the medical field. One of my biggest concerns with having breast augmentation was finding a surgeon that was going to listen to what I wanted and not just what the surgeon thought would look good to them. I did not want my breasts to look  “fake”, but just wanted them filled out and perky again. Dr. Pousti listened to every work I said and I cannot thank him enough for that. That is a Doctor that truly cares for his patients and this kind of care is hard to come by anymore. My breasts have turned out perfect and they are exactly what I imagined that they would look like. I am now about 6 weeks post operation. Dr. Pousti is so precise and detail oriented that it’s hard to tell where my incision was. This doctor is passionate about what he does and is a true artist!

I want to also thank the team that works with Dr. Pousti in the surgery center. I was well taken care of on the day of surgery by Dr. Pousti, his nurses and the anesthesiologist. Again, my expectations were far exceeded. I was given warm blankets and kept very comfortable as I was waiting for Dr. Pousti to finish my Mom’s breast surgery. Dr. Pousti talked about my goals right before the surgery as well and made markings on my chest to show how these goals would be achieved. When I woke up, I was right next to my Mom in the recovery area. We recovered together in the hospital for a while, and then we were helped into the car and headed home. Dr. Pousti’s staff called us everyday for a week to check on us and answered any questions or concerns. I still received phone calls about 2-3 weeks after surgery. This whole team genuinely cares about their patient’s well being and are eager to help in any way they can.  I would recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone, hands down. You won’t find a better doctor out there who is double board certified and who listens to what you want as a patient. I would do this all over again in a heartbeat. I am considering a tummy tuck in the future with Dr. Pousti as well. Once again, thank you to all of the lovely ladies who took such good care of me. I want to especially thank the man that created a new confidence in me, Dr. Pousti.

I searched for months for a doctor who would truly listen to my needs of what I wanted my breasts to look like. After meeting doctor Pousti and his staff I know that I had finally found a doctor that I was comfortable with. I had my consultation appointment in the Murrieta office and four months later had the surgery in San Diego. I will warn you that the first three days were hell. I had to have help with everything and all I wanted to do was sleep. After the fourth day, I was able to stay awake for longer periods of time but still needed help sitting up and lifting things. During my first follow up appointment I was able to see what they looked like for the first time. Going into the surgery I was a small A cup and slightly uneven. Three days after the surgery I was huge! My breasts were hard and bruised. About two weeks later I went in for a check up with some concerns about my left breast sitting lower than my right. Doctor Pousti assured me that it was normal. Some women’s breast will drop at the same time but because mine were uneven in the beginning it might take a bit longer for my right breast to drop. I continued to have weekly check up appointments and after eight months the right breast had finally dropped. I am now almost three years from my surgery and don’t regret any of my decisions. I am very pleased with my new body and would do it again. Doctor Pousti was knowledgeable and supportive during the process along with his office staff.

About 6 years ago after 20 years of dealing with DDD breasts, I found Dr. Pousti online and read some of the testimonials from other patients and decided on going in for a consultation.  I was really comfortable and impressed with Dr. Pousti right away.  I scheduled my appointment for that August.  I told Dr. Pousti that I wanted to go down to a small C, medium D cup.  The day of my scheduled surgery, the staff and Dr. Pousti made me feel very relaxed and even played my favorite Garth Brooks as I drifted off to sleep.  When I awoke in the recovery room, I actually felt no pain and was surprised.  The rest of the day I slept.  Over the next few days, I felt increasingly better, by the 5th day I actually went to a girlfriend’s birthday party.

It has now been 6 years since by surgery and I am so happy – my scars are hardly noticeable.  I am able to do things that I couldn’t do before with my over sized breasts! I returned to Dr. Pousti’s office with my 15 year old daughter (yes, she is 15!) because I don’t want her to suffer 20 years with her 32F breast that are only going to get bigger.  My daughter loved Dr. Pousti and his awesome staff right away and is looking forward to her breast reduction soon.

I would greatly recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone looking to have surgery.

I initially came across Dr. Pousti’s name on one of the many plastic surgery forums and the more sites I visited, the more his name camp up. Not only were the pictures documenting his patient’s results spectacular, but the reviews and testimonials of the care received convinced me that I had to at least meet for a consultation.

During my consultation, I knew that this was going to be my surgeon. Dr. Pousti has a demeanor that instantly puts you at ease. All of my questions were answered and concerns addressed, but more importantly Dr. Pousti gave me the confidence that the results I was looking for was achievable. When they say a picture is worth a thousand words, in this instance, it is everything AND in this office, not only do you see pictures-you meet with actual patients! For me, this practice is invaluable; I had the opportunity to ask questions and hear about experiences firsthand. Needless to say I left with my surgery date scheduled.

My results are better than I ever hoped for. When I look at the pictures that I brought to Dr. Pousti as examples of what I wanted to achieve I am satisfied beyond words-his skill as a surgeon and aesthetic eye for beauty gave me exactly what I envisioned. There may be other surgeons capable of providing similar results, but I doubt that they have the personable qualities as Dr. Pousti. He is one of the kindest, gentlest, honest Doctors that I have had the pleasure to meet. In a word “Genuine”. His office goes above and beyond to ensure his patient’s comfort, both physically and emotionally. The quality of care and the personal attention that I have received throughout my transformation (and yes, it had been a transformation) is too numerous to address here.

If you are considering plastic surgery, please do yourself the favor of meeting with Dr. Pousti and his team. It is one of the best decisions I have made, everyday I look in the mirror and absolutely love what I see.

I came in to see Dr Pousti , for a Mommy Makeover. Having 3 kids all weighing over 9lbs; really took a toll on my body.  I would find myself exercising, and not losing my belly.  It was very frustrating. The day I came in for my consultation, I was immediately welcomed by his wonderful staff.  I really felt like I belonged there.  After meeting with the Doctor, My husband and I knew he was the one.  Dr. Pousti really listened to my concerns, and answered all of my husbands and my questions. (There were a lot of them.) The best thing about his office was the fact that I got to meet and talk to all kinds of patients that had the same things done.  We decided that I was going to have a breast lift with implants, and I full tummy tuck; which goes all the way around to my backside, to get rid of my muffin top. The day of the surgery came quick, and I was very scared. Dr. Pousti and the hospital staff were there letting me know everything was going to be OK. I felt so much better. The surgery was 6 hrs long and it went smoothly. The first week was very painful, and I don’t remember too much about it; other than it hurt. The time flew by very fast, and by the 6th day I didn’t need any more pain meds.  I am now 8 weeks out, and I not only feel amazing; but I look amazing as well.  I look forward to my appointments at his office. His staff is so warm and caring.  Dr Pousti did an amazing job on me. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. He is truly a gifted surgeon; A real artist. He has raised my confidence so much. I would recommend him to anybody. I feel very blessed to have had Dr Pousti to perform my surgery.

Its been a year since my mommy makeover; and I couldn’t be happier with my body. I look and feel great. I couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon. A few months ago; Dr. Pousti noticed I had a small leak in my left breast.(It was actually a blessing in disguise.) He went in, fixed it, and made them fuller. 🙂 Because I had a breast lift during my first surgery; I couldn’t go as full as I wanted without putting my healing at risk. (That’s why it was a blessing in disguise.) Needless to say; my boobs now look perfect. Plus the healing time was a piece of cake!!! I love my DR. and his staff. It may sound funny; but it’s true. The whole staff is very friendly and has always set the tone by providing a welcoming and comfortable environment. I always look forward to my appointments. I can’t thank Dr. Pousti enough for what he has done for me. He’s amazing. I feel BEAUTIFUL; and I haven’t felt this way in a long, long time.

Thank You ,

After having 3 pregnancies and 2 sets of twins as a surrogate mother, I had really put my body through the ringer. My stomach was full of stretch marks, I had a hernia, and my abdominal wall had been stretched beyond the natural limits. I had lost all the weight I had gained from the pregnancies however my stomach always looked like I was pregnant. I tried every workout, and diet and nothing worked, so I finally admitted to myself that surgery was the only way. Being in the medical field myself (OB/GYN) I was confident that I knew what I was looking for in a surgeon. After my husband and I met with Dr. Pousti I knew he was perfect. The minute I walked into the office I was greeted by his amazing staff, and I was called back before I even finished my paperwork.  The entire time I was in his office for my consult I was either with his nurses or Dr. Pousti himself. He took the time to answer all my questions and I never felt rushed. During my physical consult I was very comfortable and he was very reassuring on the results that I wanted. I also loved the fact he didn’t try to sell me on other procedures that I didn’t ask for, or try to recommend other changes. I also got to meet with 3 other patients after their procedures and talk to them about their experiences which were all great.

I had the extended tummy tuck with lipo on my back to give me my curve back.  The day of my procedure Dr. Pousti showed up on time, which if anyone knows that’s rare of some doctors, and asked if I had any questions and kept me completely eased. The surgery went great without any complications, and after my nurse, that his office suggested, took me back to my hotel room and gave my mom clear instructions and graphs of how to take care of me from positions to my medications. I am now 8 weeks post-op from my surgery and have bought my first swim suit in years, and even enjoyed the shopping trip. I now love to get dressed in the morning, and have all my self confidence back.  Each day I wake up so happy that I made the decision to have the surgery and have Dr. Pousti as my doctor. I love him and everyone at his office they have taken such great care of me during the whole recovery process. They even called me regularly (including weekends) to check on me. I can honestly say the Dr. Pousti has changed my life.

Having grown up being very flat-chested, I had always known that I eventually wanted breast augmentation surgery. The only question was, “When and with who?” I started my research nearly 5 years ago and looked up many different doctors. However, I immediately realized that Dr. Tom Pousti stood out from the rest with his impressive amount of before and after pictures, patient testimonials, and the fact that he was double board certified in both General Surgery as well as Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. After years of going back to his website to ponder and consider, I finally made the decision of scheduling a consultation with Dr. Pousti. During and after the consultation, I was even more reassured that he was the right doctor for me, as he was extremely professional, courteous, attentive, and explained in very plain and simple terms exactly what my particular case involved. Also, having worked in several medical offices in the past, l took note that his staff was just as exceptional and spared no expense at making sure I felt taken care of throughout the entire process.

Needless to say, I scheduled a date for my surgery that very day because there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that Dr. Pousti was the best surgeon I could find for this very delicate, personal, and at times, unnerving surgery I was about to embark upon. The day of the surgery came and of course I had 2- 3 days of moderate discomfort, but then was practically back to my normal self, stopped the need for medication, and even returned to work after only 5 days. As for the results of my operation, my boyfriend and I cannot be happier with how my breasts look even now at Day 8, and they keep looking even better and better each day. I have a very petite frame and explained to Dr. Pousti that I wanted my breasts to be full while at the same time maintaining a very natural look that was proportional to the rest of my body and he delivered exactly that. I have zero regrets about going through with the operation and am so thankful that Dr. Pousti has such amazing skill and an eye for beauty and would honestly recommend him to anyone who is looking to have a procedure done.

Hello!
I am writing this for anyone who is searching for a truly gifted,
skilled & experienced surgeon.
Before I decided on who I was going to my first consul with, I searched
online through countless surgeons & was not blown away by any before &
after pics & when I did see a pic I liked from a surgeon it was few & far
between within that surgeons portfolio which scared the heck out of me
figuring it was “hit or miss” with them…
When I came across Dr.Pousti’s pics & reviews my fears & doubts on going
through with breast augmentation finally vanished! Not only is he Double
Board certified (which is HUGE in my book!!!) but his before & after pics
speak for themselves!! The icing on the cake is when I started reading all of
his outstanding reviews from more than satisfied patients..
I was so excited by all this I had to make a consul appt immediately!
My experience in meeting Dr.Pousti & his staff went above & beyond my
expectations. They happily answered every single question & concerns I had &
made me feel so at ease! He gave me his skilled advice on how to achieve
the “look” I was going for… Then he even encouraged me to speak to a few
patients he had which were there for their after care follow up appts which
was also extremely helpful.. All of this made me even more confident about
choosing & trusting
Dr.Pousti with such a huge surgery!
I’m seven weeks post op now & my results so far are fabulous! The size,
cleavage, shape, placement, etc.,..is gorgeous & I’m still pretty early out
so I will only look even better in months to come! I already have friends &
family who after seeing my results want to get their breasts done ASAP by
Dr.P…
I couldn’t be more happy & feel so lucky & grateful to have found
Dr.Pousti! I read in many of his reviews that, “he’s not just an amazing
doctor he’s an artist”, & now I understand why everyone says this!
If you found Dr.Pousti you need to look no further! Believe me you are
not going to find anyone better!
=)
