Approximately 5 years ago after breastfeeding two kids, my breasts were not what they used to be. I was considering breast augmentation and decided to meet with a few plastic surgeons that had been recommended to me. I initially visited two offices and was quite discouraged. The offices were impersonal, hurried and left me with a feeling that they just wanted to pressure me into scheduling an appointment date and take my deposit. When I asked any detailed questions and / or expressed any concerns, I was told those topics would be covered at a pre-op visit after I had a surgery date scheduled. Basically if I wasn’t going to leave a deposit and schedule my surgery they didn’t have the time to really talk to me. Then I visited Dr. Pousti’s office. The difference in atmosphere of the office was immediately apparent. The staff was very friendly and helpful, answering many questions and concerns I had. When I met with Dr. Pousti it was clear he was different than the other doctors I had visited. He was very easy to talk to, put you at ease and was very professional. He was in no hurry to answer any questions. He took his time to explain his approach and the procedure in detail. He was very thorough and discussed the options available to me to achieve the outcome I was looking for. Dr. Pousti even encouraged me to return with my husband and to bring some pictures of breasts I liked. He said he would be happy to meet with us until we were comfortable with him performing the procedure. After meeting with him, researching his background and experience combined with his obvious pride in his work the choice to have Dr. Pousti perform my augmentation was easy. We were very pleased with our decision and loved my new breasts. I was so pleased and confident in his skills that 4 years later, one more baby (and breastfeeding was fine with the implants) and some weight loss I returned to Dr. Pousti to change my implants from saline to silicone and to go a bit larger and while I was there get some liposuction. During both procedures, I was very pleased with the outcome and experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff. I have and would recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone considering plastic surgery.

My procedure was super easy, recovery was a piece of cake and my results are more than i asked for. Before I met Dr. Pousti and his staff I was extremely uncomfortable in a bathing suit due to the lack of ability to fill up my top! Now I am so happy with my body and it's all thanks to Dr. Pousti.

"I would like to start off by saying I was not looking for a good surgeon, I was looking for the best surgeon both in skill and artistry. My search began with reputable Board Certifying Plastic Surgery web-sites. Living a military life style does not afford me the luxury of living in the same town for yrs. and asking friends and family for a referral when I was ready for my "mommy makeover".

The morning of my surgery Dr. Pousti took the time to speak with both my husband and my self at length he answered all our questions and I felt at ease. The nurse's and board certified anesthesiologist at Alvarado Outpatient Surgery were in a word awesome.

I am currently 2 mo. post op. and am still in love with my surgeon and his staff. I wish I had the words to fully express how happy I am with Dr. Pousti and my results. I guess my 4 yr. old son said it best when he said " momma you are beautiful".

After finding Dr. Poustis website, it had a tremendous amount of information as well as hundreds of before and after photos. I had several questions about placement of the implant, size and most important was scaring, he reassured me that the scaring would not be visible a hair line scar." ~Email this breast augmentation patientCindi, Breast Augmenation Patient from San Diego, CA

"I had developed symmastia from a breast augmentation done by a surgeon in orange county, about 3 months after my surgery I noticed that my breast were too close together giving the look as if I had one breast they were really elevated, I literally had no cleavage, many people also noticed the problem. I became very upset and self conscious about my breasts. 10 months after my surgery, I knew I had to find the appropriate surgeon who has had experience with symmastia. I noticed that many doctors out there do not have experience with this problem, luckily I found Dr. Pousti on the internet and saw that he did have the experience and was amazed by the after photos of the of the patients suffering with the problem. I immediately made an appointment to meet with the Dr. as soon as I walked into the office the staff were very nice and made me feel comfortable. I felt like he was the right surgeon I had confidence in him, he and his staff explained everything to me step by step. I knew this was the doctor that would help me, it has been 2 months since my surgery & already I see that my breast are separated there is still some swelling but I am glad with the results, wow what a difference! I recommend Dr. Pousti to everyone who has this problem and to those who want to get a breast augmentation. I wish so much that I had found Dr. Pousti before my first surgery was done. I am thankful to him & Daisy and his whole amazing staff" ~Breast Augmentation Patient from Los Angeles, CA

"I wanted to send a testimonial of my experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff. Before I had made up my mind to move forward with a breast enhancement, I did research on local plastic surgeons. I found a lot of information on Dr. Pousti; his website was a great resource, and everyone had great experiences. In addition, a girlfriend of mine had a breast enhancement done several years back and highly recommended Dr. Pousti. 

My first experience at his office was the friendly, outgoing staff. They were patient and answered ALL the questions my mom and I had. Dr. Pousti was honest, gentle, and made me feel at ease. He understood exactly what I was looking for, and I felt confident that he would be able to achieve this. 

After that first appointment, I immediately decided to schedule the surgery! The surgery itself went very smoothly, and I made a quick recovery. I am currently six weeks post-op, and I feel and look great. The size is perfect, and I am finally able to wear all the cute shirts and dresses that I struggled to fill out before! I couldn t have asked for a better experience, and I am incredibly pleased with my results.  I recommend Dr. Pousti and his staff to anyone considering plastic surgery!

"When I came to see Dr. Pousti I had spent a lot of time researching doctors in southern CA. Being close to my doctor was important to me and a friend recommended Dr. Pousti to me. I had seen a lot of doctors in my lifetime and Dr. Pousti and his staff were very welcoming and a pleasure to work with. They left you feeling at ease and confident in not only yourself but in your decision to work with Dr. Pousti and his staff. He is double board certified and his website gave me wonderful insight into some of his work. For YEARS i had been looking for a Doctor to get a labiaplasty. This is where my search started. I am an extremely active person and there is not a moment in my day where i was not aware of my elongated labia.  I also had a scar on my stomach from a botched tattoo removal, so i sought out a tummy tuck to try to move the scar to a less visible area. In addition to these procedures i also had Dr. Pousti change out my implants for a much fuller look.!
  It was nice to have it all done at one time so i could heal all at once.  I am more than excited about my results. For the first time in 10 years i can wear a bikini without covering up my stomach. I can workout without worrying about my labia and i love my breasts. Not only is Dr Pousti an amazing doctor, but he is a wonderful person and an artist. His staff is the most supportive group of people that i have ever met. They are all there for you every step of the way.

"I saw four doctors before meeting Dr. Pousti, all of whom were referred to me by friends who already had breast augmentations. I got different opinions from all of them. I wanted to have large breasts, but did NOT want to have a breast lift due to the scarring. I had one doctor offer to go over the muscle with a silicone implant to avoid the lift stating I could always get the lift later if I wanted, another offered to move my nipple to make my breasts appear to be lifted, yet another said I just needed to go with a larger implant, and another said I would need a lift and showed me a few photos but didn't explain anything else. I was getting calls from some of these doctors stating they have an opening next week and can offer me a discount if I want to have surgery. By this time I was confused, what was the right answer?

Then I met Dr. Pousti, and I could tell right away that he was different. I trusted him and felt like was listening to me as an individual not just another nameless patient. His staff was excellent, and I was able to meet numerous clients and talk to them about their experience, no other doctor offered me that! Dr. Pousti explained to me that I needed the lift because without it I was just going to get large sagging breasts, more of what I already had. He assured me I would not be happy with the result and told me if I didn't have a lift he would not perform surgery on me. He also told me that if I went with the lift the scars would fade and my breasts would be everything I wanted them to be. Being still skeptical, I had two more consultations with Dr. Pousti before I scheduled surgery for the breast augmentation and lift. Dr. Pousti and his staff embraced each visit and wanted to be sure all of my questions were answered. After I scheduled surgery I had another 2 consultations before the big day. I told Dr. Pousti I wanted to go as large as I could go. He told me with the lift it is difficult to go large because the incisions could have a hard time healing. I told him I would do whatever made him comfortable so that he could go as large as possible. He told me he would do everything he could to safely make me happy.

I remember going under the morning of surgery and looking at Dr. Pousti. I was overwhelmed with comfort and knew that I was in good hands. I stayed at the Hideaway the first night after surgery and Dr. Pousti came by to make sure I was ok. I could not be happier with my results. Dr. Pousti was right, even right out of surgery, I only saw how great my breasts looked, the scarring didn't matter. He did a great job and gave me exactly what I asked for. I am between a full D and a double D and I love it!

Unfortunately for me, being a Type A+ personality I got back to work a little too quickly and 3 weeks after surgery I fell and injured my knee. The impact from the fall had also torn some of the stitches open under my right breast. At urgent care my knee was stitched up and I was told to go home and take some Motrin. Two days later I was in the emergency room with a nasty infection in the knee. I was then sent to an orthopedic specialist who was supposed to open up the knee to get rid of the infection. Unfortunately, as often happens in healthcare, this doctor was pretty busy so he put me on antibiotics and wanted me to wait another week before doing surgery! I had a fever, the chills, and a lot of physical pain. I was continuing to have Dr. Pousti monitor my breasts and came to his office in complete despair. I was crying and I didn't know what to do. Dr. Pousti told me he was concerned about me and that he couldn't leave me like this. He said we needed to open up!my knee and get rid of the infection. He offered to do it right then and there or he would rearrange his surgery schedule for the next day and do it in the operating room. Because of the immense trust I have in Dr. Pousti I went back into the operating room with him the next day. He even called me at 6 am that morning to be sure I was comfortable with my decision. It turned out that I not only had a nasty infection called MRSA (an antibiotic resistant strain of bacteria) but also a torn ligament in my knee. Dr. Pousti washed my knee out, repaired the torn ligament, checked my implant to be sure it hadn't ruptured, and re-stitched by breast to help healing and reduce scarring. Dr. Pousti did not charge me for his time. He then did all of my follow up care, also for free. This included monitoring my breasts, infection and medication, and my knee recovery. He saw me twice a week for several weeks and I did not need to see another doctor. Dr. Pousti also called me on a regular basis just to see how I was doing. He went above and beyond anything I have experienced in today's medical field. This is because he cares about his patients and so does his staff. In the few months during this ordeal, I have come to think of Dr. Pousti and his staff like family.

Not only is Dr. Pousti a great surgeon, but he is a kind and compassionate man who obviously loves what he does. I would trust him to work on my mother or my children. You don't find doctors like this in today's fast paced World, and I am so grateful for everything Dr. Pousti and his staff have done for me!" ~Lenore (Breast Augmentation Patient from Temecula, CA)

"Since the first day that I walked through your front doors for my consultation, I felt right at home. Although I was extremely nervous and anxious to meet the Dr., I was welcomed and treated so well. As I waited for the Dr. to come in, I could not even imagine what my body was going to look like after having this surgery.

My stats before surgery were:
Age: 20
Height: 5 6
Weight Before: 128
Cup size before: 36AAA

After surgery:
Weight After: 130
Cup size after: 36C
CC amount in both breasts: 390cc s
Incisions: areola incision site used

I met with Dr. P and I was not afraid to ask him questions like I thought I would be. He explained everything to me, examined my oh-so embarrassing small breasts and said that my results would look great. The one question that caught me off guard was: Why do you want to have this procedure? Not many Plastic Surgeons would ask such a question. Well he did and I gave him the truth. I had always wanted breasts since I found out that women naturally grow them as a part of growing up. From the 5th grade until high school, I waited for my breasts to grow, but they never did. I think I actually had bigger breasts when I was a chubby little girl than when I was 18 years old and through growing. I always felt like a tomboy because my naked chest looked just like a boys. I would stare at myself in the mirror for hours wondering why they never grew for me, but the rest of my family had big beautiful breasts. I was so insecure when I had to change in front of anyone and I was constantly buying clothes and bras that would make me look like I had something there. I remember praying for breasts, not even big ones, I would settle for a B-cup, but they still never grew. I knew I had to do something for myself but I wasn't quite sure just what.

I started to think about having the procedure when I was 16 years old and saw some show on a medical channel where the Drs. were performing a Breast Augmentation. It was then that I decided to look into the procedure and see if it was something I was really willing to put myself through. The price, at that age, scared me. No way would I ever be able to afford something like that. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking about the procedure and looking up various Drs. in my area. It wasn't until I graduated from high school and got through my first year at college that I decided to bring the topic up with my boyfriend. After some research and conversation, we decided to save up for my procedure and meet with some plastic surgeons.

Dr. Pousti was the first doctor on my list and he essentially became the last one I would ever see. I made appointments with other plastic surgeons but canceled them as soon as I met with Dr. Pousti. I knew right away, that he was going to be the Dr. for me. His great bedside manner and fun personality was unlike anything I had ever seen when comparing him to other doctors I had met with my whole life. He made me feel so comfortable that I knew my life and body would be safe in his hands. So, in the next week or two, we put down the deposit and waited for the surgery date that was scheduled on June 19th, 2006. The days just could not go by fast enough. As soon as my pre-op date arrived I was extremely nervous and anxious about the surgery. We took pictures, filled my prescriptions and prepared everything I thought I would need for after the surgery. A few tips: draw string pants are a MUST, easy to remove tops, tons of pillows and you'll probably need a laxative because of all those pain meds. Also, keep a box of tissues near by, you never know when you'll get the urge to cry. You re emotions will go crazy.

Morning of surgery arrived and I didn't sleep a wink the night before. We arrived and waited for a while. I filled out all of my paperwork and before I knew it, they had me changed into some oh-so fashionable robe and slippers and hooked up to an IV. I sat and talked with my boyfriend and mother until Dr. Pousti came in, did a bunch of markings on me and said they would be ready for me shortly. A nurse came in and led me to the surgery room where I laid down on the table and can't remember a thing after that. Before I knew it, I was waking up in the recovery room with a new set of breasts. I wanted so badly just to sleep some more, but I was also anxious to get home. The ride home is a blur as is the rest of that evening. I slept mostly and woke up long enough to take medication and go to the bathroom. Let me tell you about pain. The first day was not that bad, it was manageable and the pain meds kept most of the pain at bay. However, the second day was the worst for me. I felt like the pain meds were not working anymore and the pain was so severe that it hurt to stand and even go to the bathroom. I had to go see Dr. Pousti that day as well, which was very difficult and I must have looked really bad because the nurses took me into one of the rooms and 10 minutes later I was out the door and on my way back home. The third day, the pain got to be a little more manageable. By day four, I was back to my old self. The pain only felt like muscle soreness and I was up walking around as usual. I think I even went to see a movie that day, a comedy, which hurt to laugh, so I don't recommend anyone do that right after. I think the worst part of recovery is that darn strap. It pulls and pushes in ways that you don't want to be pushed and pulled. It made me very itchy and irritated on a daily basis and I was so glad to get rid of it after a month. Since then, I've been wearing soft bras at night for support and under wire bras in the day with no irritation. I am very happy with my results. The first month of two, I could not pass a mirror in my home without sneaking a peak at them and thinking, wow! I've taken my own set of pictures to follow my results and see all of the changes that they have gone through since day one. I definitely recommend to anyone that they do the same. To this day, no one has made the comment that my breasts look fake and most that do know about my surgery say that my breasts look very natural and fit my frame very well. I couldn't agree more. I love my new breasts and am so glad that I decided to go through with the surgery. It was worth all the worries, money, and pain.

I would recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone. In fact, I've sent him several patients that I know. He did a great job and made me feel so comfortable with him. His work is excellent and if I had the choice to do this surgery over again, I would do it again in a heartbeat." ~Nicole (Breast Augmentation Patient from Riverside, CA)

"I had a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation done in mid April. I have been a yo-yo dieter all of my adult life. Because of my weight loss, weight gain, weight loss and weight gain (well you get the picture) my body was a wreck! My breasts were VERY droopy and I had lost ALL of my volume. I was a very saggy D. My tummy had the famous pooch that no exercise could get rid of. I dreamed about having a tummy tuck for about 10 years. Over the past few years I knew my breasts would need a little help too . Ok, a lot of help. This past year I started doing research on tummy tucks, breast lifts and breast augmentations. After I learned everything I needed to know about the procedures I started to look for a Doctor. That was the hardest part, until I met Dr. Pousti. I saw a total of five Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Pousti was the fifth and finally one I saw. After meeting with Dr. Pousti and his staff I knew he was going to be the one. He was so kind and very caring. I loved the fact he let you meet other patients that had the same surgeries I wanted. I asked them lots of questions, They all could not say enough about how great Dr. Pousti is and how HAPPY they are with there results. They all looked great! All the office girls were so friendly and always smiling. They made me feel very comfortable. I was so afraid I was going to feel out of place. I came home very excited and told my Husband I have found the one! My Husband was very supportive on the changes I wanted to make. I went back for a second consultation armed with a list of questions to ask Dr. Pousti which he answered. He NEVER made me feel rushed. I talked with more patients and again they all looked great. I booked my surgery that day. I had my surgery 10 weeks ago and I look and feel wonderful! I am so happy with my results. I love my flat tummy and perky breasts, and so does my Husband.

"I was very impressed with Dr. Pousti and his staff. I went to a few other consults but the atmosphere at Dr. Pousti's office is so comfortable and friendly. I was immediately at ease and felt like everyone there was part of a family. Dr. Pousti was very knowledgeable and I was able to speak with a few of his patients and see in person some of his work. All his patients were very happy and I had no doubt that I would be in good hands. He did a beautiful job and I couldn't be happier! I basically just told him to make me look good and he certainly did!He is so unlike many other doctors. Spent so much time with me and very personable. Not to mention my boobs look and feel fabulous!" ~Jessica (Breast Augmentation Patient from San Diego, CA)

"It is thanks to my referral to Dr. Pousti that I made my decision to have BA surgery after years of saying I never would! Wanting to feel better about myself and be more shapely in my clothes, I decided to make the appointment for a consultation. In all my years of dealing with doctors (and, trust me, there have been a LOT of them), I have never met a more gentle-natured, kind, and caring man than Dr. Pousti. My husband and I were both very comfortable during our discussion and he addressed all of my concerns. The patients I spoke with who had been through surgery had varied stories but all were quick to say they would do it again without hesitation. His staff is wonderful as well as the surgery center staff. It was a great experience and I have a very natural-looking, proportioned figure now. Quite honestly, the last thing I thought I would ever do was voluntarily have surgery after ten surgeries trying to have children! Well, three beautiful, adopted children later, I made the decision to do something positive for myself and I couldn't be more pleased! I encourage you to do the same!" ~Cindy (Breast Augmentation Patient from San Diego, CA)

"Absolutely the best!! He was extremely accommodating to me being from out of state and scheduled everything around my schedule. Dr. Pousti and his staff are some of the most kind hearted people you will ever meet, they are all truly there for you and treat you with the most respect and compassion. Dr. Pousti has the best bed-side manner, (he held my hand before I went under and said, "I'll see you in a little while"). He goes above and beyond the "normal patient/doctor relationship and makes you feel comfortable for pre and post-op visits. His wife is his office manager and is the one who I did most of my communicating with prior to my arrival in San Diego and she is an absolute gem! She answered any and all of my questions in a very speedy manner and was extremely helpful at all times. The day of my surgery was great and I left the surgery center in NO pain what-so-ever. The outcome of my surgery could not be better. My new breasts look so very natural and are perfect (36A to a 38 full C or small D). I would recommend that if anyone is looking into any type of plastic surgery to check out Dr. Pousti and his staff, they all make you feel like an old friend as soon as you walk through the door." ~Tricia (Breast Augmentation Patient from Grand Junction, CO)

"When I had the initial consultation with Dr. Pousti, I felt very comfortable with him. I felt that Dr. Pousti was not pushy and was very clear about giving me all the information that I needed to know about the surgery. And also, he is a very easy Dr. to talk to. I'd never felt threaten or intimidate by him at all. Plus, his staffs was very helpful and nice." ~Uyen (Breast Augmentation Patient from Carmel Valley, CA - Del Mar, CA)

"I consider myself to be a modest woman, maybe even conservative. I might not seem like a typical candidate for breast augmentation, but it is something that I have wanted ever since I was a teenager. I always felt self-conscious about my breast size. During high school, I was an A cup. Later, I had three children and nursed each of them for twelve months. While I was nursing, I was able to experience what it would be like to have larger breasts. But by the time I finished nursing my last child, I became even more dissatisfied with my breasts, as now they were small, but also sagging! At this point, I wore a B cup, but I would not buy a bra unless it was heavily padded. Going to the beach was embarrassing and I often wore a large t-shirt over my swimsuit. This last summer, I was finally able to get down to within a few pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight. While I was excited with losing weight, I was disappointed to see that my breasts had also gotten smaller. It was the final deciding point for me. I called my sister and asked her for Doctor Pousti s number, as she had breast augmentation done several years earlier with Dr. Pousti and her results were fantastic. As soon as I hung up the phone with her, I called Dr. Pousti and scheduled a consultation a few days later. My next step was to go to his web site and check out the possibilities with the before and after pictures of real patients. When I went to my appointment, the office staff was so friendly and cheerful that I felt comfortable discussing my hopes and concerns with them. When I met with Dr. Pousti he was very reassuring and confident. Before I left, I scheduled my surgery. Living in the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley, I was very thankful that Dr. Pousti has an office in the Murrieta/Temecula area, so that I did not have to drive all the way to San Diego (even though I would have been willing to)! The surgery itself went well. The staff and the environment at the surgery center were also great. My recovery has been going well. I stayed home for six days after my surgery and returned to work (as a high school teacher) being careful about how much I moved my arms. I only took the heavy duty pain pills he prescribed during the first 4-5 days and then I switched to over-the-counter Motrin. I am thrilled with my results! Even though my husband has always been good about telling me how beautiful I am, now I can actually believe him. I finally have the confidence that has been lacking for a long time. I can't wait until my four-week check-up so that I can start wearing real bras in my new size (probably a D)!!! Thank you Dr. Pousti!" ~Site Visitor (Breast Augmentation Patient from Murrieta/Temecula, CA)

"I've wanted a breast augmentation ever since my breasts stopped developing at the age of 16. I went to a seminar Dr. Pousti had a couple years ago where previous patients came to speak about their experiences. However, I didn t seriously consider undergoing surgery until about 9 months ago. I researched the risks online, read about what to expect before, during & after surgery, read testimonials on Dr. Pousti's website and browsed the pictures. I liked what I saw and read so I scheduled my initial consultation. Dr. Pousti was always a gentleman and answered any questions I or my boyfriend had honestly. There was never any pressure to go a certain size or go with saline or silicone. I simply told Dr. Pousti what I wanted and provided him with photos, as a point of reference, to make sure we were on the same page. I am now 5 months post op and love my results. I wanted to look proportional and natural and that is exactly what Dr. Pousti helped me achieve. I feel more feminine & sexy, my clothes look better and shopping is certainly more fun both for me and my boyfriend. I went bra shopping for the first time after the surgery and was shocked that my cup size is as big as it is a 34D coming from a small 34A/B. I would recommend anyone who is considering a breast augmentation to Dr. Pousti and his very capable hands. He does not charge for his consultations so you can schedule an appointment to speak with him and his staff as many times as you need to. So, a sincere thank you to you Dr. Pousti and staff, for my wonderful new breasts and a continually pleasant experience." ~Email this breast augmentation patientSamantha (Breast Implant Patient from San Diego, CA)

Breast Augmentation Information

The procedure takes approximately two hours. Placement of the implant is usually centered on the nipple-areola. Often, placement above or below the muscle is decided on an individual basis. Likewise, the incisions used to place the implant vary with patient preference and anatomy. The surgery is performed in the office surgical suite under general anesthesia. The size and type of implant to be used, along with their relative advantages will be discussed with your doctor at the pre-operative appointment.
