Revisionary surgery is a difficult process to go through. One of the more common problems that patients are seeking Dr. Pousti's help for is symmastia. Symmastia - commonly referred to as "breadloafing" or "uni-boob", occurs when two implants touch one another in the center of the chest. If the horizontal muscle that is connected to the sternum and goes across the implant is cut during surgery, then the implant can move toward the middle of the chest. Symmastia results from overly aggressive attempts to alter chestwall anatomy trying to increase cleavage in patients. This outcome is made worse by use of larger implants in thin patients, and is a problem for implants over or under the muscle, though submuscular implant placement allows the muscle to provide some softening of the transition to the cleavage area from the augmented breast mound.

Since Dr. Pousti has experience with symmastia repair, many women from around the country choose to fly to La Jolla or San Diego to obtain his services.

The reason that I considered my breast augmentation was not because of the typical reasons that women decide to have a cosmetic procedure.  I decided upon the procedure because I have a pectus excavatum.  People born with pectus excavatum have a “sunken” or “concave” chest.  Pectus excavatum is a congenital chest wall deformity in which several ribs and the sternum grow to produce a concave appearance to the chest wall.
My options were to keep with the status quo and have nothing done, have a major invasive surgery to correct the pectus excavatum, or have a cosmetic procedure to conceal the problem.
The major surgery, or invasive repair of pectus excavatum surgical technique, is where an incision is cut into the chest, the sternum is forcefully lifted, a clam is forced under the sternum, and a metal stability bar (or a few bars) is placed to stabilize the chest.  Several sutures are placed on the chest, which leaves a nasty scar behind.  The average hospital stay is a week or longer, and the risk of complications is 20%.  These statistics were excessively high for me.  Instead of risking a very dangerous surgery to correct this common abnormality, I opted for a cosmetic procedure.
I live in Orange County surrounded by plastic surgeons that make claims to be the best.  When I initially considered breast augmentation in 2004, I visited as many plastic surgeons as I could.  Many of these doctors treated me like a number, or a paycheck, and not a human being.  I nearly gave up my search. 
Then I ran into a friend from San Diego who had recently had a breast augmentation.  She suggested I see Dr. Pousti.  I made an appointment, and upon arrival, I immediately felt less anxious.  Dr. Pousti’s staff treated me with respect, and were very open and honest with me.  I had three more appointments with other plastic surgeons that month, but I felt as if I was going just to compare them to Dr. Pousti and his staff. 
I decided to go ahead with the procedure, and scheduled my surgery for April 2006.  The experience was remarkably easy.  I showed up to the hospital, and all the staff worked very hard to make my experience as comfortable as possible.  After the surgery, I stayed at “The Hideaway” which is a 24-hour facility for those recovering from a cosmetic procedure.  They made sure that I stayed on schedule with my pain meds, so I do not remember being in much pain at all.  It also helped that my mom and sister stayed with me as well.
Now that I am nearly four months out of surgery, I can say that I am completely satisfied with my results.  Dr. Pousti had done excellent work, and I feel much more confident about having a pectus because it is now barely visible.
After my experience, I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Pousti for a breast augmentation.  I want to say thank you to Dr. Pousti and all of his staff for making my experience as smooth as possible.

If you are reading this on-line or sitting in Dr Pousti's office and still wondering who you should choose to do your Breast Augmentation,Please stop and listen!!!
I had my Breast Augmentation done in May of 2006. It was not an easy decision. It took me 8 years to actually go ahead with the surgery!There was always something else that needed to be done and I had not found the right doctor. I work in a hospital and have seen and heard many horror stories. Hospitalizations from post op infections, women in the ER because they weren't well informed about what to expect post operatively, not enough pain medication, and no way to get a hold of their surgeon in the middle of the night! I knew that the hardest part of of going ahead with the surgery was going to be finding a doctor I trusted to do it. Many of my friends have had Breast Augmentation. I knew what to expect. I knew it would not be a "walk in the park". I interviewed many doctors, but I just never felt quite right about putting my life and my body into their hands. I never had that "gut" feeling that I could trust them, until I met Dr. Pousti.
Make no mistake, the most important part of deciding to have surgery, of any kind, is who you are going to choose to do it. You must ask the right questions. Not just the board certifications, those are important. But, what is their infection rate? The last thing you want to do is go home and not only try to recuperate, but get sick with some horrible infection as well ! Believe me! I have seen it happen! You want a doctor who is meticulous, who only operates in a Surgery Center or Hospital he or she trusts.Someone who takes all the necessary precautions and even some that may not be necessary! When I met with Dr Pousti, I could see his focus. I did not feel like "one of many" patients. I felt like my case was as important to him as it was to me. I wanted someone who could see the whole picture. I wanted my body to look a certain way, not just be a certain cup size!  He did not throw a bunch of silicone bags at me and say "pick one". He listened and asked questions as if he was formulating his own plan on what he would do for me and how he would help me achieve my goal. My other BIG concern was post operative pain. Now, I did not want to sound like a drug addict, but I did not want to have a lack of communication about pain meds leave me beyond miserable. Dr. Pousti and his staff had already covered it and then some! I was well taken care of as far as pain medication.I had all my medications ahead of time and the surgery center made sure I was taken care of for the ride home. I won't say it was easy, but they made it as tolerable as it could possibly have been and made me as comfortable as possible. It was wonderful to know that Dr.Pousti and his staff were available should I need more medication. In fact he or someone in his office contacted me around the clock to check on my status at home. They are all extremely attentive! It's like being with your best girlfriends everytime I go for a follow up! We are all celebrating ! From beginning to end, my experience has been impeccable. Consult, pre op, surgery, post op, follow up...all well planned and everything thought out.  All handled professionally. He and his staff are the absolute best! Should I choose to have any other surgeries, I would only go to him. No doubt about it!
Okay so I have covered the fact that you must ask important questions about infection rates, pain medication, surgery center, etc. I have assured you that he has a wonderful, compassionte staff and that Dr. Pousti himself is meticulous, focused and attentive. You may be wondering how satisfied I am with the end result! There are no words! Everything I could possibly have hoped for , he did. My breasts look and feel exactly the way I dreamed they would. He listened to everything I said, he looked at every picture I brought in and he gave me EXACTLY (if not better than )what I asked for! I did not think it was possible to look and feel the way that I do now. Especially not after breastfeeding 3 kids! These are the most awesome breasts I have seen and guess what ? They are mine!!!  Thank You Dr Pousti! And for those of you still on the fence, look no further!

Since the age of 13 the one main thing about my body that i wanted to change was the size of my breast. Starting high school a year later confirmed it. I felt like i was the only person in high school with an A cup that wouldn't grow, so i vowed to myself that if my breast hadn't grown by the time i was 21 that i would get surgery. I told my mom this and she told me that i was probably just a late bloomer but if it was what i really wanted that it was okay with her. Hundreds of stuffed bras later, it's happening! I'm having a growth 21 y/o ? Oh, I had a growth spurt alright! Along with my bigger breast came an even bigger stomache. I was pregnant. It seemed like the only way my breast would grow so late in life. During my pregnancy by breast went from a 34 A cup to a 36 D cup. No time to enjoy them because they didn't belong to me anymore and they were extremely painful. My son didn't breast feed for very long ( a total of about 30 minutes all his tiny life) so the milk dried up and my breast went back to a size A cup. This time it wasn't the perky A cup i had before it was a deflated A cup which wasn't too appealing to me. That is when my goal became set in stone, i had to get breast implants. I'd been doing research on breast augmentation since i was 16 years old and the only real concerns i had and now was going under the anesthesia and scarring. My husband decided that new breast would be the perfect birthday/anniversary persent for me so i decided to do a little more research for the San Diego Area. I couldn't travel far to get surgery because of my son and i wanted to be close to home so i went to the internet and got to work. I went to about twenty sites looking up doctors and looking at the work they'd done but the one that stood out to me was Dr. Pousti's because of the number of women of color that he'd operated on. The pictures of his work where extremely persuading and on his website were also the price listings for all of his work which i didn't find on any of the other websites. I found that extremely helpful, so i called and set up an appointment for my consultation. When i arrived at the office I felt extremely relaxed and at ease. It is a beautiful office with a beautiful and friendly staff to make you feel comfortable right from the start. During my consultation i let the doctor know of my concerns with anesthesia, scarring, nipple sensation and my diabetes. He answered all of them truthfully and even insisted i talk to a member of his staff to get the info from someone who'd actually had the procedure. Between the 2 of them all of my worries melted away and i was confident about the doctor and staff and procedure i was about to undergo. Surgery day ran smoothly. I literally went to sleep and woke up with new breast! They gave me plenty of good medications to keep the pain off and for that i was really grateful. It is so important to have someone there for you right after your surgery because most of the time you'll be out of it because of the meds. The pre-op and post op instructions don't lie, you need to follow them to a T. Don't plan on lifting anything for awhile including children all you'll do is hurt yourself and hinder your recovery. My advice is to make sure this is what you really want to do before you do it. Do your research, make sure you are comfortable with the doctor and staff. Write down your questions so you don't forget when it's time for you to ask them. I love my new breast! Before I had my surgery i was a saggy 34 A cup and after I'm a 34 C cup. They look natural and they fit my frame which is exactly what i wanted. I didn't gain any weight from them either, i am 5'2 and weighed 127lbs before surgery and i still weigh 127 lbs. I will admit though i am a little taller though, because i don't hunch over trying to hide my non-existant breast :) Dr. Pousti and his staff are great people and most of all they know what they're doing! I'm happy with my outcome and i know they can and will do the same with others.
Hello there!
I am a 36-year-old mother of one.  I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Pousti in July of 2006.  I have always wanted to “get my boobs done”, and when the time finally came where I was able to do so, I chose Dr. Pousti.  I did some research, and after my first consultation with him, I feeI had to look no further.  I was highly impressed, not only by his knowledge, willingness to answer questions, education, training and experience, but also by his quietly confident demeanor and professionalism. 
I chose to have breast augmentation to increase the size of my breasts, especially after having a child.  After the birth of my daughter, my breasts became saggy and deflated.  I wanted younger, perkier breasts, but I didn’t want the softball-under-the-skin look; I didn’t want them to look “done”.  I stressed this fact to Dr. Pousti, that I wanted a natural look, and I received just that.  If you didn’t know me before the surgery, you would never guess I had a breast augmentation. They look like they are mine, and are perfectly proportionate to my body -   I just look like I have a pair of really nice breasts!  I was and am still extremely happy with the results, and would recommend anyone to see Dr. Pousti for any kind of plastic surgery they may be considering. One of the hallmarks or signatures of Dr. Pousti’s work is his aereolar incision – it is so small, you can barely see it – extremely small in comparison with incisions from other doctors I have seen.  You can’t even see it on my breasts.  If you want beautiful, natural looking breast, Dr. Pousti is the man to see.
Hope you’re doing well – take care!

Durante las últimas semanas he estado tratando de pensar en cual seria la
mejor manera de agradecerte por el trabajo increíble que hiciste por mí.
Aunque trato, no hay palabras que puedan describir lo contenta que estoy.
Inicialmente, cuando lidiaba con la idea de cirugía plástica tenía muchas
dudas y preguntas. Aunque no sabia cada detalle del procedimiento de una
cosa estaba segura y era que deseaba encontrar un medico con quien me
sintiera cómoda, que me hiciera relajar y mas aun que me tratara como la
persona que soy y no como una paciente mas.
Dr. Pousti, desde el momento que visite tu página web sabía que tú serias el
doctor para mí. Siendo una mujer que presta atención a los detalles note que
no llevabas esa sonrisa falsa que había encontrado en otros doctores. Eso
fue solamente el comienzo porque al llegar a tu oficina todos me hicieron
sentir de lo mas cómodo, el nerviosismo que había acumulado se borro en mi
primer visita. Todos me trataron tan bien, se tomaron su tiempo, nunca dando
me ningún apuro y les agradezco a todo tu equipo por estar conmigo durante
cada minuto. Simplemente, les escribo para agradecerles por escucharme mis
preocupaciones, por darme la atención que yo quería, por darme el
sentimiento de tranquilidad como si estuviera entre familia y mas importante
aun hacer de mi la mujer que yo quería ser.
Muchas gracias desde el fondo de mi corazón.

If you are reading this you are most likely considering having a breast augmentation or a tummy tuck. With my first pregnancy I gained 60 pounds and breast feed for a year . After working hard to lose all the weight I was still left with saggy breasts, loose skin and  stomach full of  stretch marks. I was eating right and exercising five days a week and nothing would help the aftermath of the pregnancy. I felt so self-conscious that I wouldn't raise my arms in case someone would see my saggy stomach skin, and when I would look down into my padded B bra there would be a big gap where my breasts used to fill it out. I just didn't feel feminine any more. Knowing that I had done everything in my power to change my body,  I decided to look into plastic surgery.       
Dr.Pousti was the first plastic surgeon I had a consultation with, I was very impressed with how friendly his staff was and how personal he is. I was also surprised with how many of his patients were willing to share their experience. I didn't want to make any hasty decisions so I went to see two other doctors. I really wasn't impressed like I was with Dr. Pousti and his staff. As I was ready to call Dr. Pousti to schedule surgery, there was another plan in store for me, I was pregnant! Round two! Another 60 pound weight gain and more breast feeding! I was also left with an umbilical hernia. Now more than ever I was ready to reclaim what was once my body.   
Since It had been almost two years since I had seen Dr. Pousti I scheduled another consultation with him and I was more impressed than the first time! I still went to two other doctors that I didn't see before, but I knew deep in my gut that Dr. Pousti was the doctor for me.    
If you are considering  this surgery there were three main reasons I chose Dr. Pousti. One, he has all his board certifications. Two, all of his clients are willing to share their experience with you so you know he dose good work. Three,  He is such a cool, down to earth, caring doctor . You will feel like he's on the same page with you every step of the way. From your consult to your pre-op to right before you lay down on the operating table and even your post-op care Dr. Pousti was the same caring doctor through the whole process.
I had a full tummy tuck and breast augmentation, the pain was not bad and definitely worth it! Thank you  Dr. Pousti for giving me the best bikini body ever! I'm the best I've ever looked! I never have to wear a padded bra ever again! My tummy is soooo flat and my breasts fit my body perfectly! For anyone who is suffering from post baby aftermath or just want to stop feeling like they need to hide parts of there body they don't like, I would just like to say time is precious and there is no better time than the present to stop feeling self conscious, with a little help from the Doctor! I know when it's time for me to turn the clock back, I will be coming to see Dr. Pousti again.

l have always been A was great for my grades, not my cup size.
Finally, after nursing 2 kids...for my 33rd birthday, I decided to do it.
Dr. Pousti and his staff were excellent from day 1. My husband and I were very impressed at our initial consultation when Dr. Pousti made sure I wasn't making a rash decision. We set the date...and it was done. The results are absolutely wonderful. Though I'm not the show off type, I have added some low cut shirts to my wardrobe with rave reviews from friends, colleagues and especially the hubby. At 5' 6" weighing 120 pounds, I did not want anything dramatic. Dr. Pousti went 360 cc which put me to a C cup, where I was while I nursed. He took his time in surgery to make them look perfect...the effort is much appreciated. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone interested in this procedure.

In seemed pretty incredible to me that I would ever even consider breast enhancement surgery.  I have always had full breasts from a very young age and usually tried to down-play their size.  However as my 40th birthday approached I took serious stock of myself.  Dieting, exercising, a pregnancy and plain ol' gravity had definitely had an impact on their size and shape.  I'd been a full C cup all my life, but weight loss had caused my breasts to shrink considerably and unfortunately sag in the process.
I wanted back what I'd lost.
I found Dr. Pousti on-line, as a lark, just "looking into" cosmetic surgery.  I'd kicked the possibility of surgery around for nearly a year before I started doing serious internet research.  Dr. Pousti's website was amazingly informative....much more so than some of the others I'd seen.  The information regarding the procedure I was curious about was stated in matter-of-fact, direct, understandable terms.  It certainly allowed me to fully comprehend what I wanted to do, the risks, impact, cost....everything.
I made an appointment to see Dr. Pousti for an initial consultation for breast enhancement surgery.  Dr. Pousti was able to get me in for my initial consulation right away.  His staff was remarkably approachable, courteous, and friendly.  But it was upon meeting Dr. Pousti that I made my decision almost before the visit was over.  What a gentle, thoughtful doctor he is!  It made all the difference in the world that he had all the time I needed to answer my questions and offer his expert opinion on what we needed to do to get my breasts where I wanted them to be!  Within 24 hours I'd called his staff back to schedule the surgery!
My concern besides returning my breasts to their fuller shape was also "lift"....although I didn't really want to have a breast lift.  Dr. Pousit was able to address this issue and I was able to not only enhance the size of my breasts but to stop them from breasts didn't look this good when I was 25!
To be honest, I wasn't really concerned about the procedure itself.  I just really had a tremendous amount of confidence in Dr. Pousti's skill and the obvious fact that he is extremely focused and detail-oriented.  I had every reason to believe that he would perform a remarkable job and he did not disappoint me in the least.  I was concerned about the pain factor during those first few post-operative weeks and he and his staff were very informative and supportive during this time.
The pain was pretty intense for those first couple of days (and nights)!  No point in sugar-coating DOES hurt!  I had pain medication that was enormously effective and allowed the management of my discomfort to be curbed.  I'm very proud of the fact that I was able to stop all pain medication by the fourth day post-op.  My breasts looked pretty wild those first couple of weeks, but they've "settled down" quite a bit and they are indeed the full, natural looking D cup that I'd hoped for.  Concerns about scarring around my nipples are alleviated every week....they're healing beautifully and fading faster than I thought they would.
My entire experience was just been such a positive one!  Every post-operative office visit is such a pleasure since the girls continue to be so positive and encouraging!  Dr. Pousti always comes in and sits down and speaks with me personally....he continues to cultivate his relationship with his patient long after his work in the operating room is's like a familly there and it's impossible to not feel special and important.
If anyone ever seeks my advice about cosmetic surgery or a doctor I will direct them to Dr. Tom Pousti with affection!
Dr. Pousti..... he is more than just a plastic surgeon he is someone who makes you feel as if you have known him your whole life.  Dr. Pousti and his staff are all wonderful to work with.  He made my breast augmentation look very natural.  I am so happy with the result and grateful for the boost of self-confidence that Dr. Pousti provided me with. 
I cannot thank Dr.Pousti and his wonderful staff enough! 
First of all, let me say that I had been doing my research on breast augmentation for a couple of years and when I came across Dr. Pousti and his staff, I had to look no further. They all made me feel really comfortable and I knew that this was it for me.
The day of surgery Dr. Pousti was so sweet, making sure I felt calm and relaxed, assuring me that I was going to be very pleased. I am more than pleased with my results and the whole experience. I got exactly what I wanted; larger that, most importantly to me, look and feel natural!
Dr. Poust truly is an artist! I hight recommend him to anyone who wants beautiful results.
Thank you so much Dr. Pousti and Staff!!!!

I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Pousti and I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon.  I had done a lot of research on surgeons in the San Diego area, and after all the research I had chosen Dr. Pousti because his credentials and before and after pictures were the most impressive.  I had read many testimonials of happy patients of his and even got to meet with them when I visited his office for a consultation.  The staff was absolutely wonderful.  Everyone always greeted me with a smile and was very helpful with the whole process.  Dr. Pousti was very comforting, and really put me at ease about having the procedure done.  I had visited the office twice before I went through with the surgery, at absolutely no cost, and by surgery day I was very confident that i would be happy with the results.  Dr. Pousti will spend as much time with you as you need to answer any questions and to make sure he knows exactly what results you desire. Sure enough, I am extremely happy with my new set of breasts!  The recovery was faster than I had thought.  By the third day after the surgery I was going out and on the fourth day I even got in a swimsuit and hit the beach.  I was still a little sore and was limited on what I could or could not do...but by the 2 week mark I felt completely normal again.  I would recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone considering this procedure, I promise you will be happy with the results!

Before even meeting Dr. Pousti, I knew he was going to be the doctor for me.
I was searching on the internet for Laser Hair Removal and Breast Augmentation (in San Diego) and found Dr. Pousti’s website. Just by his page alone, I was absolutely impressed. It was by far the most informational and helpful resource I’ve seen on plastic surgery. I picked up the phone and made an appointment immediately!
Dr. Pousti and his staff are incredible…the most personable, caring, and friendliest people. I felt comfortable around them from the get-go. I went to Dr. Pousti’s office for months getting monthly Laser Hair Removal treatments. Great results! Breast implants were always in the back of my mind, but I did not care for them at the time.
I was always half/half and on/off about breast augmentation for years. My overwhelming curiosity for ‘the other side’ finally took over and I was ready to take the plunge.
In the fall of 2004, I had Breast Aug Fever. I went back to and sifted through all the Breast Aug pictures. Pousti’s before and afters are phenomenal. He has more photos on his page than anyone else dares to do; that is really a big statement. It means Dr. Pousti has nothing to hide. Not only is there a great variety (women of different colors, shapes, and sizes), but there are pictures in every angle! Some websites only show the work in one or two.
I printed out the cases that related to my situation the best (women that had an AA cup size), and cases I did not like at all. I labeled my printout “DR. POUSTI’s BOOBS”, and brought it to my consultation. Haha! Dr. Pousti got a chuckle out of it, but it gave him an accurate idea of the look I wanted. And what I wanted was a classy breast size to fit my body. I definitely wanted to avoid looking overdone.
My favorite cases:
CASE 85, CASE 87, CASE 91 and CASE 318
In these cases, the women’s results were flawless! The cleavage, the centering of the nipple, the beautiful shape…perfect!
The day of my consultation, I was able to meet a patient one-day post-op. That was really thoughtful of Dr. Pousti. I never met someone who had brand new breasts. They looked pretty great already, and they were only one day old! I couldn’t wait to get them done. I scheduled a pre-op and set my surgery day.
However, I made a last-minute decision to move to Las Vegas a few weeks later, and all my boob job plans fell through. BUT! I came back! It took me 2 years, but I came back! It didn’t occur to me to get my surgery done anywhere else…not even where I live! I wanted the natural look, and there’s nothing natural about Las Vegas. Haha! The real reason I made the journey is because I knew I wouldn’t like any other doctor or any other staff or any other boob job than what the Pousti Team has to offer.
Surprisingly, everyone still remembered me! It was like Cheers! They also kept my DR.POUSTI’S BOOBS printout from all these years! Dr. Pousti and I recapped on all my personal preferences, and set all the necessary appointments.
Scars and recovery. It’s a different story every time you ask some one with fake ones. I constantly had worries of what story I was going to be telling. Nobody wants horrendous scars or that ‘ton-of-bricks-on-your-chest’ feeling we often hear about.
I was very calm on my surgery day. I wasn’t scared or worried anymore, because it was all happening…finally. The prep-staff rocked! Dr. Pousti goes over everything again, and this is the time to really say your final words.
When I finally woke up from “Anesthesia Land”, they let me take a peak at them two hours post-surgery. I was extremely grateful they weren’t up to my neck! I began to feel a bit nauseous as I was being rolled out to the car, but the feeling quickly subsided.
My recovery was pleasantly a breeze! I really lucked out and could not be more thankful! I had no bruising and surprisingly NO PAIN! I got a chance to catch up on the latest movies and TV shows, and my friends pampered me like royalty.
My incisions weren’t sealed with stitches, but rather special surgical glue. They looked like crusty scabs and fell off after a month. The scars are small and almost unnoticeable. I have a naturally tan complexion, so my scars as of right now are a tad lighter than my skin. Time, they assured, will eventually even it out.
There was a little discomfort from the hideous surgical bra I had to wear for 3 weeks, but it’s part of the process. If you decide to do this surgery in the summertime like I did, you will have a hard time hiding the surgical bra with summer clothes. Also, they say some people lose sensation in the nipple, but I was just the opposite. My nipples were extremely sensitive for 2 months (especially in cold temps). Don’t worry though…IT’S ALL WORTH IT! I’d do it all again in a heartbeat =)
ADVICE for OUT-of-TOWNERS: Not only does surgery cost a pretty penny, but the travel expenses add up as well. So far I’ve had two follow-ups since the surgery and there’s probably more to come. If you’re going to fly in for surgery, just take that into consideration. I have no complaints though…San Diego’s just around the corner and always fun to visit!
Overall, Dr. Pousti’s work exceeded my expectations. My friends and family have described my new breasts as: “the perfect size for you” - “very classy” – “natural looking” – “you can’t tell they’re fake” – “they’re really soft for only a few moths”…MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

THANK YOU to: my friends who took care of me (Nurse Jeff & Nurse Kendy), all the staff, and THANK YOU, DR. POUSTI!
I am 35 and a mother of 2 teenage girls.  I did not nurse my children but
have had my ups and down's with weight loss and here in the past couple of
years I really started to notice the loss of breast tissue.  All through my
high school years and even through having my two girls I had always had a
full 36 "C" cup.  Actually in high school I hated them because they were
much larger than any of my friends, they made me very self conscious.
Little did I know what an asset they really where!  So  as time has gone by
and I am noticing they loss of my breast's I would always kid with my
husband that I wanted my boob's done, his response was very encouraging.
Not till this past February of 2006 did I start researching and consulting
with different plastic surgeon's.  It's hard to know where to start because
their is a plastic surgeon at every corner and this is something you don't
want to look up in the yellow pages.  But after doing EXTENSIVE research on
the internet I found Dr. Pousti, called his office and set and appointment.
>From the very first phone call to now being 3 months post op Dr. Pousti
his staff have been nothing but professional and kind.  On June 28th 2006 I
went in and had a breast lift and augmentation.  I am not going to tell you
that I was not nervous because I was, not because I didn't think he was
going to do a great job, but I have never had a surgery in my life!!  Dr.
Pousti saw how nervous I was and reassured me that everything would be just
fine, and it was.  I woke up with little pain and on my way to having my
boob's back again and this time appreciating what I have.  I cannot say
enough about the staff at the surgery center, they were terrific!!  My
husband was deployed to the middle east so my sister was here to take care
of me.  Dr. Pousti was so kind and called my sister a few hours after my
surgery to see how I was doing and did so again the next day.  I happened to
see him the next day for a post op visit and his staff got me in and out as
soon as they could seeing I was in some discomfort.  The recovery has been
fine, the first 4 days for me was uncomfortable but after that each and
everyday I felt better and better.  I am now 3 months post op and loving it.
I went from a very flat 36 "B" to a very full 36 "D".  I cannot say enough
kind words to Dr. Pousti and his entire staff but thank you, you guys ROCK!!

Here is my testimonial for the website:
I had been thinking about getting breast augmentation for a couple of months but was worried about finding the right doctor to do the procedure.  I found Dr. Pousti when I was searching for information online about the procedure.  His website was very informative about breast augmentation, and answered every question I had.  I then made an appointment to have a consultation with the doctor.  From the first day I walked into the office I knew Dr.Pousti was the doctor I wanted to perform this procedure.  Dr. Pousti and his staff were very helpful, friendly, and caring throughout the entire process.  
I am now 8 weeks out of surgery and I cannot explain how pleased I am with my results (My husband is very happy too!!).  I have more confidence now than I ever did thanks to Dr. Pousti.  I would recommend Dr. Pousti t
