Dr. Pousti was amazing. He was always professional and respectful.
~Shannon (Plastic Surgery Patient from Richmond, VA)
"I had my procedure done in November of 2009. It has been almost a year since my breast surgery and I am even more in love with my breasts than ever. 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 recommend his to everyone!" ~Melissa (Plastic Surgery Patient)
"I would recommend Dr Pousti over any other surgeon he is the best." ~Breast Augmenation Patient
"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".
~Tera, Breast Augmenation Patient
"From my early teen age years I have always known I wanted to have larger, fuller breast. I also knew I wanted to wait until I was finished having children, before having breast augmentation surgery. 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." ~Cindi, Breast Augmenation Patient from San Diego, CA
"He was the best surgeon I've been to and very caring." ~Shelbie, Breast Augmenation Patient
"My plastic surgeon and his staff are awesome! Dr. Pousti is truly an artist. I am only two weeks post op right now but i am very very happy with my results. They familiarize you on a first name basis. I mean you don't feel like another face but a valued patient. I totally recommend woman to go to Dr. Pousti! I showed him pictures of what i wanted and he delivered with 100% accuracy!" ~firstname.lastname@example.org , Plastic Surgery Patient from San Diego, CA
"This man is brilliant. He is incredibly meticulous, pays attention to ALL the details and is a gifted doctor, human and artist. I had ugly tuberous breasts that I have hated since my childhood and he made me beautiful. Without reservation I would recommend him to everyone and wish that I met him sooner!" ~Elizabeth, Plastic Surgery 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! Thank you" ~ Emilie (Breast Augmentation Patient from San Diego, CA)
"From my very first visit Dr. Pousti and his staff made me feel extremely comfortable and were more than happy to answer any questions that I had. I appreciated the fact that everytime I went in to the office I was able to talk to at least a couple women that were post-op. All of the women spoke VERY highly about Dr. Pousti and his staff and their whole overall experience. Everyone was so helpful and made me feel very confident that I was making the right decision, with the right doctor, every step of the way! Most importantly, I am VERY pleased with the results. I honestly don't think that I could be happier!! For that I would just like to give a big thanks to Dr. Pousti and his staff, my whole experience couldn't have been better!" ~ Breast Augmentation Patient from Lake Elsinore, CA
"Awesome! Helpful, kind, attentive, extremely well qualified, great group of office staff...highly recommend them!" ~Candace (Breast Augmentation Patient from Hemet, CA)
"The ABSOLUTE BEST SURGEON! I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM WITH THE HIGHEST REGARDS!" ~Tracy (Breast Augmentation Patient from Avondale,AZ)
"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 could not have asked for a better experience." ~Jennifer (Breast Augmentation Patient from Rancho Cucamonga, CA)
"Dr. Pousti is the best doctor ever, he takes time to make sure you are both on the same page as to what the patients expectations are. If you want your surgery to turn out acording to your idea, you must go to Dr. Pousti." ~Sandi (Breast Augmentation Patient from Campo, CA)
"Excellent!!!" ~Danielle (Breast Augmentation Patient from Encinitas, CA)
"He's the best!!! I have boobs to prove it." ~Erin (Breast Augmentation Patient from San Diego, CA)
"Dr. Pousti is an excellent surgeon with a caring (and lovely) staff. I got incredible results. The experience felt more like a beauty treatment than a medical procedure, yet I know Dr. Pousti will always provide annual post operative check ups, which gives me a feeling of confidence and security." ~ Missy (Plastic Surgery Patient from San Diego, CA)
"He is the best doctor! He is over the top amazing and the work he has done for me I can't say enough good things about. His staff is first class. My experience with Doctor Tom Pousti was all around spectacular. Going back to him in the fall for a tummy tuck!" ~Allison (Plastic Surgery Patient from San Diego, CA)
"Great Doctor and Great staff had No problems. He did everything I wanted and more couldnt be happier. I now have great looking boobs thanks to him!" ~April (Plastic Surgery Patient from Palm Springs, Ca)
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!
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.
stats before surgery were:
Height: 5 6
Weight Before: 128
Cup size before: 36AAA
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)
my name is JD, I'm a 37 yr old mother of 2. I had breast augmentation
1.5 yrs ago and I'm very pleased with my results. Dr Pousti and his
staff are the best. They are very caring, supportive and genuine.
As an RN, I've seen the work of many surgeons and in my opinion Dr
Pousti's work is outstanding. After our initial research, Dr Pousti
was the only consult my husband and I had, we were both very comfortable
with him. Dr Pousti is very honest and sincere in his approach to
plastic surgery. I would recommend Dr Pousti and his staff to anyone
considering any kind of plastic surgery. He and his staff are the
best in the field." ~JD (Breast Augmentation Patient from San Diego, CA)
"He's the best. He's kind and very personable."~Denise (Breast Augmentation Patient from Hemet, CA)
"Dr. Pousti and his great staff made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. The office staff is like a big, warm and welcoming family." ~Site Visitor (Breast Augmentation Patient from Corona, CA)
"I thought Dr. Pousti and his entire staff were awesome. He spent a lot of time talking to me to really understand what results I wanted to achieve. I never felt rushed or that he thought I was taking up too much of his time - even when I went back 3 times with more questions." ~Stephanie (Breast Augmentation Patient)
"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'm thrilled with the whole experience I had with Dr. Pousti and his staff. He truly is a gifted Surgeon and I would recommend him to everyone! He has forever changed my life!" ~Karen (Breast Augmentation Patient from Sun City, CA)
"He is calm, friendly, honest, caring, professional, and a miracle worker. I cannot say enough about him." ~Judi (Breast Augmentation Patient from Oak Hills, CA)
"Dr. Pousti has a very calm demeanor that makes you feel relaxed in his office. He answers all of your questions and he really listens to what you want." ~Kelly (Breast Augmentation Patient)
"Last March I visited Dr. Pousti's office in search of the right physician to perform my breast augmentation. His was the last office I visited because after having been to other offices, there wasn't a need to continue looking. I was very impressed by Dr. Pousti's practices. He sees you for the initial consultation, which isn't standard practice. He is honest and allows you to speak to other patients to ensure you are fully informed of what you can expect from your procedure. My breasts are now beautiful D's and I couldn't be more pleased with my results. They are very natural looking. I love my new figure and so does my husband! Thank you Dr. Pousti and your fabulous staff. My sister cannot wait to make her appointment." ~M.S. (Breast Augmentation Patient from San Diego, CA)
"Professional, kind, courteous, friendly, informative. Awesome staff and the surgical center staff are the best I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Any question answered no matter when. Very supportive and warm. With assured confidence and utter glee, I will always recommend Dr. Pousti!" ~Kathleen (Breast Augmentation from Santee, CA)
best surgeon out there! Dr. Pousti listens to what you are looking
for. Reasonable prices, wonderful staff, amazing results. I recommend
Dr. Pousti to anyone." ~Nicole (Breast Augmentation Patient
from San Diego, CA)
"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)
"He was the best!! His office staff was so nice and I am so happy that I went with Dr. Pousti." ~Shannon Elizabeth (Breast Augmentation Patient 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)
"Dr. Pousti did a wonderful job. He is very smart and knew how to make me feel comfortable before getting breast implants. His staff is also very nice. I would recommend him for any kind of plastic surgery." ~Site Visitor (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)
"He and his team are excellent. They go far beyond the call of duty to make everything pleasant pre-op. His attention to detail has made a tricky surgery work out beautifully. I couldn't be happier." ~Site Visitor (Breast Augmentation Patient from San Diego, CA)
"First Class surgeon! Dr. Pousti genuinely cares about each individual and their needs." ~Erin (Breast Augmentation Patient from San Diego, CA)

"Dr. Pousti was wonderful. He made me feel very relaxed and comfortable about my operation. The results are amazing!! I'm back to my size before I had my kids and my breasts look amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Pousti. My tiny scars are hardly noticeable and I am truly thrilled with my results. I wish I had done this sooner!!" ~Karin (Breast Augmentation Patient)
"Dr. Pousti is a very great doctor. I got the best result I would ever dream of!" ~Angela (Breast Augmentation Patient)
"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)
