I have wanted a breast augmentation for years & I'm finally doing it. I'm super excited & a little bit nervous. I'm getting high profile, saline implants, 550cc on my left and 600cc on my right to correct the asymmetrical size of my breasts. I've done sizing a total of 3 times. Twice with Dr Alavi and once with another surgeon. It made me feel better that they both agreed that i was able to... more
Surgery scheduled for this Friday, 22 May with Dr. Pousti. I'm really scared the closer the day nears, but I trust in in good hands. Dr. Pousti and his staff have been nothing but wonderful, understanding, and patient with me. I'm really nervous about the healing process. I'm active duty military, really active and love working out. I just want to get back to my normal routine as quickly as... more
To Doctor Pousti and his quality staff (with a special shout out to Vanessa),
Thank you thank you thank you thank you. There simply aren't enough word combinations I could string together that would adequately describe how I feel about this whole experience. If I had to sum it up in one word though I suppose I would chose grateful. I am truly grateful to have met all of you.
I never write... more
Let me start off by saying Dr. Pousti is by far the best choice you can make when choosing a plastic surgeon. At 22 years old, I've lost and gained 30 pounds, twice, within about 6 years. My breasts went from 36 C to 36 DD and back two different times. When I came to see Pousti I had sagging 34 Cs with absolutely no breast tissue up top, just extra skin. Initially he suggested a lift with... more
I've chosen my PS & met with him for my re-op appointment. everything went very smoothly. I am most fearful of looking top heavy because although i petite, i have a wide waist and hips, similar to kate uptons wide waist and hips. i really like my petite image and i love the way i look in clothes (pre op) i just hate the way i look naked or in a bikini. My surgery is in 5 days and the anxiety... more
I decided to write on here because I know how much it can benefit others to read about someone else in your same situation. Since my teens I had asymmetrical breasts and knew one day I would want to get them fixed. After each pregnancy it got worse since I produced more milk on my left therefore it stretched out more. I was almost a C cup on my left and an A cup on my right. Wearing fitted... more
I just had my surgery yesterday April 21st 2015. I wanted a BA since high school but didn't really have the resources to do so. On the day of my surgery I thought I was going to be a nervous wreck but I was very calm. I 100% trust my doctor and love how he is all about safety first. So I'm now post op day 1 and I'm not gonna lie I am in some pain. I got the OK to up my dosage and it helped so... more
400cc, Silicone, Mentor HP, transaxillary incision. 5'3", 128lbs. Slight concave chest making my left breast bigger than right breast.
Hope this helps. Wishing I had gone slightly bigger with 450cc instead. Overall, just happy to have bigger breasts. This is so much better than where I started from.
Eight days post op! Feeling so much better! Stitches were taken out on Wednesday. I'm... more
I am 27, Asian and very petite. I have been flat chested my entire life. I remember in high school, I would ask my mom to take me to the doctor many times to check if anything was wrong with me since my boobs never came in! My mom would always tell me, "Just wait, they'll come!" I cried and begged my mom to get me boobs, but working as a nurse, she'd see and hear about all... more
THE SEARCH FOR A PS:
I started my journey for a breast augmentation over 3 years ago. I was looking for a very natural BA, I work in a professional environment where I sit at a table with a lot of executive and wanted to keep my presence focused on my work ethic and not my breasts! I did my research and found a couple reputable surgeons in my area that I consulted with. After my visits I had... more
I joined RealSelf at the beginning of the month, and I'm glad to have found such a wonderful, supportive community to share my journey with. Ever since I can remember I have wanted to have boobs. (Okay I'll admit it - I have boobs - they are just barely there & never really developed).
Here are my stats:
Weight: 114 lbs
Bra Size: 34AA
Petite build but... more
I had my breast augmentation exactly one month ago and I am so happy with my results (even though i want to go bigger LOL! ) Dr. Pousti is the only doctor I had a consultation with and I knew that day he would be my doctor, It was one of the best choices I've ever made in my whole life! He is the most caring Dr. I have ever met, I have clinical depression and very bad anxiety so I am... more
So where do I start? I had my consultation a couple days ago and booked my surgery date before leaving that's how amazing Dr. Pousti is! (His really funny too!) The thought of having surgery made me so nervous and he really put me at ease. Dr. Pousti and Daisy went above and beyond to make me feel at home. During the consultation he measuresed me, went over goals, pros and cons over the size I... more
I have always been athletic and toned but smaller chested. Being a dancer, this was always fine, but now I am more grown up and FINALLY wanted to feel more womanly because I knew they were never going to get bigger. I have always had a booty, and just wanted the front to match the back so to speak.
It has only been two weeks since the surgery and I have been a little depressed ever since. I... more
A year ago exactly, I was ready to commit to a breast augmentation procedure, or so I thought. I met with a couple of doctors, including Dr. Pousti, but still had my doubts. It took a year of contemplation and now I find myself 5 days away from my surgery date! Nervous but excited! I know that I am in great hands! more
I have been so pleased with my consultation and pre op appointments. I cant express how amazing Dr. Pousti and staff are. They are very professional and caring. They have been so helpful with any questions and or concerns. I also like the office because they don't really keep you waiting. Once you are checked in, it's not long after that you are to be call back . They also don't keep you... more
I got 465cc on my right and 495cc on my left. I decided to get silicone (personally loved the way it felt and I had really small breasts to begin with. A cup) Sientra. I am 5'7 and 135lbs.
After large C-D cup. Today is my 1 month post-op and I have not gone sports bra shopping. I will today and I am so excited!
I wanted larger breasts and I was going for a natural looking/ keep them guessing... more
I have wanted boobs since I can remember. I vividly remember asking my mom if I would get them in 5th grade because that is when all my older friends got theres. lol Needless to say that did not happen. Everyone else on both sides of my family had/has nice boobs, and I got skipped.
I was a full A cup until I got pregnant at 16. I quickly grew to a C cup and stayed there throughout the... more
Just scheduled my breast augmentation with Dr. Pousti! I am super excited and a bit nervous, I'm traveling from FL. He looks like a great doctor judging by his reviews and my experience thus far! I am petite so I am looking to go between 200-270cc silicone under the muscle. Many of my wish pic include that range, so I feel like I go any bigger it will look unnatural.
I had my surgery on... more
My husband and I spoke for awhile about getting a breast augmentation so we ginally buckled down and did extensive reaserch on doctors in the San Diego area and we cane across Dr. Pousti whom had the top reviews and was considered the highest qualified in the area. Which of course caught our eye as it would anyone looking into surgery. We had a consult with the doctor and his staff, they wre... more
