If you have gynecomastia, read this. It may change your life. It has changed mine! I was in a never ending cycle of trying to improve my shape in the gym, seeing results everywhere except my chest, and quitting on myself because of how insecure my gynecomastia made me feel (even with a shirt on). This vicious cycle went on for years! I never felt comfortable at the beach or pool in a tank top, wouldn't even think about taking my shirt off in public. I was always adjusting my shirts when out with friends and trying to move my body in a way to hide my unsightly chest. It was constantly on my mind. Enough was enough, I had thrown around the idea of seeing a plastic surgeon for long enough and it was time to do something about it. Doing a quick google search of surgeons in my area brought me to Dr. Pousti. After reading some reviews and scanning his helpful website, I mustered up the courage to finally make the call. One of his lovely assistants helped me schedule my consultation and pay my $100 consult deposit (which goes towards the cost of your procedure). My first visit was a whirldwind of emotion and information, I would have felt overwhelmed had it not been for his extremely helpful and kind staff. Never once did I feel uncomfortable which was important being the only male in the entire office excluding Dr. P himself. I left my consult with a date of surgery just like that! As I write this, I am 6 days post surgery and have just drove home from my one week follow up. I can barely describe in words how amazed and relieved I was when we took the compression garment off and I took my first look at the results. All the years of anxiety and low self esteem drained out of me, disappeared even, along with the breast tissue and fat that was simply no longer there! I now have a flat, sexy, and manly chest (mind the scraggly hair and markings of course- the surgical look is a bit unflattering) To see this much improvement in only 6 days blew me away, I can only imagine what my 3 month results will look like. Having this procedure done by Dr. Pousti is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. This man and his amazing staff will change your life, use me as proof. I wish I had made that call years ago!

Dr. Pousti exudes professionalism and courtesy. For a guy in a vulnerable position seeing a plastic surgeon for male breast removal, being treated with dignity and respect had me at ease. His thoroughness had me without more than a couple questions, and the ones I did have were answered with full confidence. Not to mention he is a Picasso in the OR! The staff he surrounds himself with is right on par with everything I described. Nothing but positive experiences. I have already recommended friends and will continue to do so.
