“Roses are red; violets are black…why is your chest as flat as your back?” These were normal things I heard growing up, but I didn’t let it define me. I was always self-conscious about my chest, but I tried not to let it bother me. Fast forward…fell in love, got married and started a family…? Was seriously wondering how I was going to breastfeed without any breasts?!? But hey, being pregnant and nursing was fun…the “titty fairy” came and I got to experience boobs for the first time. So after my husband and I were done having kids is when I really started to consider “doing” something about it. I searched all over the internet because I wanted a very natural look. Most of the pictures I was looking at came back to this Doctor in San Diego…Dr. Pousti. My husband and I met with him and he really got inside my head as to the struggles I was having making this decision to consider something like surgery. I left the office excited at the possibility, but still weighing my decision. It was much more of an emotional process than I realized.
I had to come to terms with my own body and how I viewed beauty…was I just being vain? In the end I decided to embark on this journey, not to be noticed or to be the hottie at the beach in a bikini, but to feel like a woman. From there, I booked my date and moved forward without looking back. I put together some pictures from his website of the look I was trying to achieve. The night before surgery Dr. Pousti called and reassured me (I think he sensed my anxiety of being too large at the pre-op visit) that I was in good hands and my results would be very “natural.” Dr. Pousti really listened and gave me what I desired. I now feel sexy and comfortable in my own skin…Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you Dr. Pousti and staff for a wonderful experience from start to finish!
