Comfort in my Own Body - San Diego, CA

Oh Boy, Well I guess this really first started...

Oh Boy, Well I guess this really first started when i was younger and always had a little extra fat in my belly. I was always very uncomfortable with it and excercise didn't seem to help. Well once into Adult hood and my first baby the extra fat was also tons of stretch marks. After the birth of my first daughter in 2001 didn't take very good care of myself and gained an excessive amount of weight almost reaching 200 lbs by 2006 it was then that i realized I needed to do something If I ever wanted to feel better for myself so I started working out and eating better and made a complete life change. I lost 70 lbs and even ended up having another baby in 2009 and and kept all the weight off, Unfortunately i was left with tons of excess skin on my stomach and after nursing my baby for 16 months my breast were very saggy and sad. I always wanted to get the skin removed and get my breast back but never really thought to hard about it until a girlfriend of mine had a "Mommy Makeover " after having twins. I then started looking into a realized this was definitely something I wanted to do. I met with Dr. Pousti and was very pleased with everyone in the office. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Pousti from the moment I met him and I cannot wait to get my procedure done, its in 2 Days and I couldn't be more excited.

I Am finally back!! Dec 3rd I will be 8 weeks Post op. Dr. Pousti & his Staff are absolutely amazing. I have had a speedy recovery and am very happy with my results. I still have some swelling in the front and in the back but besides that seem to be doing really well. The first week after surgery was the hardest and the most painful but after that it seemed to just get easier. I the incision line around my stomach and back are exactly how I had hoped they would be. My breast size is perfect the incision around my areola on my left side is perfect, the right side is a little off but i know that can be corrected or change during the healing process so I am waiting that out. Overall I would rate Dr. Pousti and his staff at a 10 they are good people.

Thank you so much for sharing on RealSelf! Your results look absolutely fabulous! What items do you feel were necessary for a comfortable recovery?
