Had my first BA in 2005 after breast feeding two kids, was a 34C prior to kids and like many, my breasts totally changed after breast feeding. Goal of first BA was simply to get back what I had. Went for the natural look and did mentor moderate profile saline implants filled to 390cc. I'm 5'9, weigh 115, athletic small frame. I should wear a 32D, but hate tight bands so I'm more comfortable... more

Anyways let's go back a little bit to pre op.. I did extensive research about this magical man with hands made to fix people, my consultation... more
My journey began when my left implant deflated in October of 2010. My original augmentation was in 1994. I did not have any complications with the 420cc saline filled implants by Allergan in 16 years. I was advised that “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” and since my right implant did not seem like it had a problem, I chose to only to replace the left implant with the same Allergan... more
I am almost 35 years old and had my first breast augmentation about 5 years ago. After breast feeding my youngest son, I experienced some unevenness in size and of course the usual "saggy-ness" so many of us feel after nursing our children.
I had an augmentation, (please note my 1st procedure was NOT done by Dr. Pousti). I was never really satisfied with the results of my 1st augmentation as... more
My first BA was in 2004 when I was 20 years old. I received 325cc saline implants placed under the muscle via crease incision by a well known and highly credited surgeon on Park Ave in NYC. I wanted to go as big as possible and the surgeon claimed he could only fit 325cc overfilled to 375 on one breast and 345 on the other. I also had one breast higher than the other and one was a little bit... more

The change was so gradual I didn't notice the hardening of my 30-yr-old implants. However, while on vacation in Colorado, I experienced significant pain in my left breast and knew I needed to have it checked. My 28-yr-old daughter had received implants from Dr. Pousti 7 months before so I called him to schedule an examination. To my relief, he saw me the day after I returned home. Within 7... more
When I first met Dr. Pousti and his staff in 2005 I immediately noticed the difference between him and other plastic surgeons. He's double board certified, so kind and patient, has SO many photos of many procedures he's performed so beautifully, and all of his past and current patients were (and are) so willing to share their experience and even show you their results, and his staff is so... more
I decided to have my surgery done in San Diego, even though I am from the Bay Area in Northern California because Dr. Pousti is a very honest doctor who cares about his patients. I went in for a breast mastopexy and implant exchange to be done in one procedure. The day of surgery Dr. Pousti informed me that it at need to be done in 2 steps for your safety. He was very understanding of my... more
After extensive research, I decided to have a breast implant revision surgery in March 2013. My left side was very low causing a double bubble on the bottom on the breast. It was painful and looked odd. Now, 9 months later, I'm looking at going back to fix the left side, yet again, because it is really high. It did not drop into the pocket. Hopefully, the same doctor can fix it. I went to Dr.... more
I had breast revision with Dr Bilitho LaJolla Ca.Hes an amazing surgeon. I was bottoming out and he decided to place allergan tissue to create an internal sling to support my breasts.
The number seems large 525cc but he decided this was the best for my shape. My breasts are beautiful and I have cleavage with the reshaping he did. He was caring and I saw him everyday for one week. His nurses... more
I had silicone implants put in 4 years ago above the muscle. 2 years and 2 kids later, I developed capsular contracture around both implants. I came to Dr. Pousti to do a revisionary breast augmentation and make my breasts look fuller. He placed the implants sub-muscular. I could not be any happier with the results!! more

After a prompt response from Vanessa at Dr. Pousti's office and several emails and phone conversations I decided to... more
Just over a year and a half ago I had my breast augmentation done by a surgeon I was referred to by a friend in Orange County. I went to my consultation, he seemed very professional. My experience was absolutely terrible. Not only were the results not what I had expected, but there were also complications. The entire experience was terrible, the situation not only took a toll on how I felt... more
