Breast Lift & Implant Removal (Breast Augumentation to Follow) - San Diego, CA

I was unhappy with the appearance of my breasts...

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 when I found Dr. Poutsti. He had so many great reviews with before and after photos that I decided to go for a consultation. Dr. Poutsti and his staff were all so warm and friendly, while being professional, that I made my decision to go ahead and schedule the breast lift, remove the old saline implants, and replace them with silicone.

Unfortunately, I had a complication with the surgery, which was NOT the fault of Dr. Pousti. There was not enough blood flow to my left breast, which made the healing process very slow. Dr. Poutsti made the correct decison and did not insert the implants. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. During the healing process I was going to see Dr. Poutsti twice a week for 2 months and then down to once per week, every other week, etc., until I was fully healed. Dr. Poutsti and his staff took such good care of me during this difficult time and gave me encouragement and confidence that I would be pleased with the end result. They called me regularly just to make sure I was doing okay, even though they were seeing me twice per week at his office. It's been about 4.5 months since my initial surgery. I'm scheduled for the breast augumention in a couple of days, so my story will be continued. I'm a little nervous, but I know I have the absolute best doctor and staff!!

It’s been a little over a week since I had the breast implants, and I’m very pleased that everything went well…no complications and I’m very happy with the results. As I said in my previous review, I was a little nervous, but everone at the surgery center was so nice and explained everything thoroughly so I soon felt at ease. Dr. Poutsti has worked with the same anesthesiologist for over 9 years, so that fact alone made me feel very confident. Dr. Pousti met with me before the surgery to do his drawings on me and review everything with me one more time. My surgery was on a Monday and he told me he took my file home with him over the weekend to review it. That’s dedication! Dr. Pousti also assured me that this was going to be a much simpler procedure than the breast lift and that he would be with me in the surgery room before I was put to sleep and would be there for me every step of the way. I knew I was in good hands but it’s comforting to hear those words from Dr. Poutsti. He just has a way abut him that made feel like everything will be okay. Dr. Pousti also assured me time and time again that I was going to be very happy with the results and he was right. YES, I am very, very pleased and it’s only been a week since my surgery. Dr. Poutsti did such an excellent job and I am amazed at how good my boobs look and I know they will improve even more in time Thank you, Dr. Pousti. I also have to compliment everyone on Dr. Putsti’s team. They are always very cheerful, greet me by my name and have been calling me daily just to make sure that I'm doing well.
