For as long as I can remember I have wanted this procedure. I was originally a smaller B (which is fine) but I had some slight weight gain and loss (20-30 pounds...nothing crazy) in high school and because of that I felt that my breasts weren't as full and perky as I would have liked. This caused a lot of insecurity for me personally even though most people didn't understand or agree. I... more
I feel so very fortunate to have found Dr. Pousti and his team. I recently had my consultation with Dr. Pousti and I couldn’t be more excited about pursing my dream of having a breast augmentation and otoplasty procedure. I found my consultation to be extremely informing, encouraging, and overall a very positive experience. Dr. Pousti has an uncanny ability to anticipate what your questions... more
When I was very young unfortunately I developed a server battle with anorexia which I battled with until my late teen years. After finally receiving much needed help permanent damage had already been done. I am extremely healthy, very athletic, and take my health incredibly seriously... but unfortunately I never gave my body a chance to develop breast tissue during my adolescent years. After... more
I'm not sure where to start :( All I cant say is that I want a BREAST AUGMENTATION soon. I would love to find a good surgeon (board cerified). I been on here for a month or so and been reading a lot of stories good/bad. I used to be a 34C and weighted 145lbs (and i was so happy with my body) but I lost some weight (unfortunately) so now I'm just a small 34b. I am 5'3 and now weight 115lbs... more
I have been unhappy with the look of my breasts for some time now, years really. Two pregnancies and body composition changes left them deflated, saggy, and not very pretty to me (even though my husband said they were fine to him). I believe right now that I am a 34 A or AA, I am not wearing the correct size right now because I keep shrinking and its hard to keep up with!
I had researched... more
I am 24 years old and after 5 years of thinking of breast augmentation, I decided to go trough with the procedure. Before the procedure I was a 32A and now I am 36D and feeling so great about it.
I looked up so many doctors online and after months of searching I came across Dr. Tom Pousti, simply the best. I am so happy with my results and I feel like a new me as been born. Dr. Pousti is a... more
Although I am only 21, I have always been insecure about my breasts. Growing up, I developed breasts earlier than the other girls around me, however, I found they had stopped growing shortly after. Currently, I'm a 32 A, sometimes AA, and I've been considering the option of breast augmentation for about 2 years. I've been putting it off, however, because I'm on Active Duty in the military and,... more
I had a breast augmentation surgery done by Dr. Pousti about 3 months ago and I cannot recommend him enough! I was 23 when I had the procedure and went from a 34B to a 34DD. The following is a detailed, completely honest review of my experience.
I had been considering getting this procedure for about 4 years before I went in for a consultation. From the very first consultation Dr. Pousti made... more
At 31 years of age, I had never spent my younger years coveting large breasts. I was completely comfortable with my 32 b's…..albeit not ecstatic about them…. but whatever I felt I was lacking in certain outfits could usually be remedied with a push-up bra. One day as I was trying on old outfits in an effort to clean out my closet, it occurred to me that larger breasts would transform my... more
I have been wanting to get a breast augmentation since I realized my boobs were never gonna grow... When I was 17. I really had no boobs, I could nearly fit the smallest bras. But I didn't have the time or the money to do it. I moved to San Diego for good about a year ago after graduating, and have been working since then. So it was finally a good time to do it. I started looking online for... more
I went in to the appt thinking I'll just get some info since I'd been contemplating it so long. Dr. Laverson and his staff made me feel so comfortable I scheduled for a week later. They did not push me to choose a larger size. I chose the gummy bear implants and went from an A to a C. He did a beautiful job making them look natural. I am so happy with them and I feel great about myself! It... more
Since I was in High School I envied the girls that had a chest. I always hoped that one day my breasts would just inflate. The outlook was grim with my genes. Always wanting to get implants though never thought I could I joked about my flatness. A trusted friend showed up one day with implants. They looked awesome. She had only had them for a month and was overjoyed and feeling awesome. She... more
I had my consultation today and tried on a 550cc sizer. I like how it looked but would even be happy with it a little bigger. I originally thought I wanted 450cc but that is way too small for me. I definitely do not want to end up wishing I went bigger!! I think at my pre op I will see if we can do something in between 550 and 650cc because the 650cc sizer was too big. I don't want to be top... more
I have always been self-conscious of my breasts and dreamed about breast augmentation ever since I discovered I was stuck with an A cup. I hated that they were small, far apart, cone shaped, and lacked upper fullness. I did a lot of research and there are a lot of surgeons (not all board certified) that can do a BA at various prices ranges. I met with three different doctors in La Jolla but I... more
I have always been small chested all my life but I never really understood why, because all the females in my family where well in doubt. I always wanted to get a breast augmentation but was always a bit hesitant because I didn’t know what to expect. After ten years of wanting bigger breast I decided to go for it and really start my research on possible surgeons.
While doing my research I... more
I'm a 39 year old mother of three who had GREAT boobs when I was younger. However, three cute little munchkins later and those great boobs were gone. I still had decent size left over (34c), but zero upper fullness. I decided to look into breast augmentation to get my girls back. I set up a consultation with Dr. Pousti on the recommendation of a friend who had a breast lift and augmentation... more
Hey everyone! So I just got my BA three days ago and I'm feeling great! Sorry my English sucks, it's not my first language but I'll try to make everything clear. I should've started this long time ago but I was busy with schools and I’ve always been super lazy. I’m the kind of person that once I decide something I have to get it done real quickly, so everything happened in about a month.... more
I have searched for a great plastic surgeon for quite some time now. I neither had the money or resources until now to accomplish everything that I needed. I am in the military and with all of the home of resident changes I would find a doctor that caught my interest then have to move on. Finally, I got orders to San Diego as well as saved up enough money so after a month of research via... more
So now that I am recovering and feeling great, I thought I would take the time to write a review. I am following Doctor’s orders, and I am trying to stay pretty inactive other than daily living activities. I had surgery on Friday, May 16th. This is a long review, but I see so many a little bit older women like me trying to decide on size, or whether or not to get a BA, and I thought it... more
