“This is an actual patient of Dr. Pousti”
Dr. Tom Pousti currently utilizes the Keller Funnel Method during Breast Augmentation Procedures for Silicone Gel Implants.
The Breast Augmentation Surgical Procedure The surgical process of breast augmentation surgery requires approximately two hours in surgery, with placement of the saline or silicone breast implants usually inserted in the center with the nipple and areola. Oftentimes it is the decision of the patient to have the implants inserted above or below the muscle. The choice of incision location and type also varies by patient preference as well as physical anatomy. The surgical procedure is performed in a modern and state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center with the patient under general anesthesia. The size of the implant as well as the type – either saline or silicone – as well as the relative advantages will be discussed with Dr. Pousti at the pre-operation appointment. Expectations Post-Operation The most important step to speedy recovery is bed rest, especially the day of surgery. Take in plenty of fluids while preventing any aggravation to the chest. For the first week of recovery, a fitted bra will be given to you, with the ability to shower as quickly as two or three days after the operations. In the beginning, your breasts will appear a bit higher than normal, which will slowly start to descend to a more natural position over the next 3-6 weeks. It is common that your chest will feel a bit sore for a few days after the surgery, and by the end of the first week you will feel comfortable.

Testimonials From Patients in Texas “Dr. Pousti and his office and staff met every expectation I had, and ones I didn’t know about beforehand. I was referred by a friend on a support group message-board, and after researching online, called down to his office, and started the process. I had found that there were no local surgeons that were experienced in going even remotely “large”. I called the offices of at least 10 surgeons in the Austin area, and not one had much experience going over 500cc’s. When I said that I was looking for 1000+, none of them were even interested. And I’m glad they weren’t, or I would have never looked outside of my local area. Looking through Dr. Pousti’s before and after pictures for XL breast implants, I quickly came to realize that he had amazing skills, not only in the smaller sizes, but in making girls look great with well over 1000 cc’s. I asked to go with as many CCs as was safe in terms of my health, and to reduce or eliminate the gap between my breasts, which was especially bad when I would lay down. After my first breast enlargement with a different doctor, my left implant moved so badly to the side, I felt very self-conscious about it. After my surgery with Dr. Pousti, which included an internal bra procedure as well the 800cc implants overfilled to 1200cc, I have amazing cleavage! If you want a doctor who works well with out of state patients, and who has an incredibly helpful staff, and explain things in detail, then you need to seriously consider Dr. Pousti. I feel that I should have gone with him originally, and I would have been much happier with my results, and my self-image. He truly knows how to take your concerns and desires in mind, and try to give you as close to what you want as possible. There are so many doctors who want to talk you out of what you really want, because they don’t think like they can do it, but I never got that feeling with Dr. Pousti. He truly cares about making sure that you are happy, and that at the same time, he does the best job possible! There are a bunch of amazing hotels nearby to Dr. Pousti’s offices, from high end, to affordable, yet extremely comfortable and nice. His office was very helpful in making my decision on where to stay, as well as accommodating my more limited schedule, due to the amount of time I could spend in San Diego before flying back.”
“I want to thank everyone who was involved in making this breast augmentation successful; from the office staff to the nurses and anesthesiologist who were in the operating room with Dr. Pousti. Dr. Pousti did a wonderful job before, during, and after the surgery! My husband and I were very pleased with his openness, honesty, fervor for his profession and his eagerness to balance what was best for me with the ultimate size that I was looking to accomplish. In our research prior to selecting Dr. Pousti, we found that many doctors are unwilling to meet the desires of those who are looking to go this big; however, Dr. Pousti was willing to meet my desires to go bigger than the average breast augmentation size. With this said, he was not just willing to put in bigger implants but was also extremely interested in doing what was best for me, overall, while providing the look I wanted. Instead of insisting on a specific cc amount, we were confident in Dr. Pousti’s experience and his genuine care for what was going to look best with my body type. I let him make the final decision in the operating room, as to the final size of the implants. He was able to fill both implants within the cc range I was hoping for, while staying away from the look that I did not want to have. We have to say, “They look great!” We are very thankful for the entire process and the end result. Thank you so much Dr. Pousti!”
