I had 2 consultations and was beyond impressed with Dr Tom Pousti (2nd consultation). I am scheduled for a Mastopexy III breast lift in 4 days! I am scared to death! I have lost 130 pounds, have nursed 3 beautiful children and my breast have no fullness or perkiness! They sag, I swear I could trip on them if I don't get them lifted off the floor! I plan to get 550 - 700cc silicone implants... more
A friend of mine recommended Dr Brucker who did her breast augmentation and face lift, and I'm glad she did. I have 3 procedures I want done, so I started with the one I'd been wanting the longest - a breast lift. Being older but still athletic, I wanted small breasts and no implants (I was a 32D) so I knew getting the lift and look I wanted would be difficult. But after meeting Dr B and... more
Tomorrow starts my new journey. I will be having a tummy tuck and breast lift. Going for my markings today with Dr.Pousti. Will post before and after pics later. Really looking forward to the new me. A bit nervous too. In really good hands though. Dr.Pousti is the best and all his staff are truly remarkable
Its been 13 days from surgery now and it really has been a journey so far. The... more
I had a breast lift/reduction 15 years ago when I was 25. Since then I've had 3 children and breastfed all of them, leaving my breasts deflated, sagging and generally unattractive (I've named it the "raw chicken breast syndrome"!). I met with Dr. Pousti for a consultation and loved him. I also met with 2 other doctors and the choice was clear. It's been a month since my surgery. The first... more
I "found" my PS on another website I have wanted a lift for several years now. I remember watching Dr. Rey the Beverly Hills surgeon oh about 7 or 8 yrs. ago and decided then I could use some help in this area. I have 4 sons all were breastfed and so my breasts have not been the same for quite some time now. The hardest thing so far is telling my now adult sons about my upcoming surgery. This... more
I only met with Dr. Pousti the day before my surgery. I did the consultation through phone calls and via email. I think I made the best choice possible by coming to Dr. Pousti!!!! From the girls in his office to the staff at the surgical center everyone was GREAT! I would highly recommend him even though my final results are not even close to showing. I still look 100 times better that prior... more
In Feb. of 2012 I underwent a stage 3 breast lift. This is the most severe/aggressive lift in the industry. I thought I was beyond hope. No before pictures were as bad as mine, so I had modest hopes as to my results. What I came out with overjoyed me. For the first time in my life, I had high placed ROUND breasts. I had developed early and then gained a massive amount of weight as I aged. At... more
After losing some weight I've decided to go under the knife and get breast implants. After talking with Dr. Pousti he said I needed a stage 3 lift as well as the implants. This was a hard pill to swallow ,as I am only 21, but I've come to terms with the scarring and can't wait for my surgery. I feel Dr. Pousti will more than meet my needs in the OR as well as post op.5 days !!! I keep having... more
I was unhappy with the appearance of my breasts even though I had two previous breast lifts, many years ago. The most recent breast lift procedure, with implants, was done about 15 years ago. I was hoping for fuller, perkier and a little bit larger breasts. I went to another plastic surgeon first that was very highly recommended by a friend of mine. I was also doing my research on the internet... more
I've always, always, always been deeply unhappy with the shape of my breasts, even though the men in my life have never complainted. But it was always obvious to me that one was much larger than they other, and they were shaped rather like bananas. As I've gotten older and gained weight, they have really sagged, the nipples are at different horizontal levels, and my breasts are pointing... more
I am super excited I'm a week and one day away from my surgery can't wait to have my new and improved twins. I had considered having this procedure for about 5 years. After I had my two beautiful children I decided it was time. I was small before having my kiddos and my breasts grew a ton with pregnancy, but after it was all said and done, they looked horrible! (as you can see in the before... more
I have finished step one of the two surgeries I will be having. First was a breast lift with a reduction I was carrying huge 34 DD which couldn't have been any more uncomfortable. Dr. Pousti and I chose to do two surgeries instead of combined into one, leaving less risk factors out and just making a smarter decision in my case. As I heal from my first surgery I am already so much more... more
Planning surgery for Friday. Dr. Pousti and his staff seem very friendly.
Nervous about vertical scar, anesthesia (he uses general), and I like the really round shape for breasts ("bubble"), and I am nervous it won't look like that when finished. Also, that nice, round bottom curve on the breast I think is really sexy, and I am worried that with a lollipop it might flatten.
I decided to have a breast lift with augmentation because the girls didn't match how I felt about myself. Breasts were sagging and getting older while my spirt definitely was not! I made the appointment on my birthday and it was probably the best birthday gift I have ever received, albeit from myself! I made myself crazy reading things online about what size I could be and how many... more
Pros - breast are fuller & larger.Cons - lacking upper pole roundness, uneven nipple size, one breast larger than the other, still sagging which was expected to a certain pointWhy would my PS recommend a re-lift only 6 months after my original surgery? Is there a possibility he did something wrong? I had a bilateral masteoplexy, lollipop incision.Would have seen many different PS first.... more
