Dissatisfaction with breast size.
Having been dissatisfied with the size of my breasts, I had been considering breast augmentation for many, many years. Finally, the time was right, I decided to do it, and commenced my research. I talked to all my friends who had undergone breast augmentation surgery, read everything I could find, did the rice test, and scheduled consultations with four different doctors. I wondered how I would know which doctor to choose. My friends had just said, “Oh, you’ll know.” I visited the first two doctors, both of whom seemed just fine, and was stumped as to how I’d make the decision. Then I saw Dr. Pousti. Though I had not heard of Dr. Pousti before this consult, before I left his office I had my surgery date set and pre-op scheduled. I went home and canceled the fourth consult.
How did I know? Of the four consults I had scheduled, Dr. Pousti’s office was the only one that asked me to bring in pictures of what I had in mind. I also appreciated the detailed questionnaire I was asked to complete, as well as the pre-exam discussion I had with his staff. I was also able to speak with three post-op patients of Dr. Pousti, each at a different stage of recovery, which gave a lot of insight to the process. When I finally met with Dr. Pousti I could tell that he got it –he understood right off the bat my personality, my lifestyle, and what I was looking for. I felt very comfortable that he could make it happen.
Though I hadn’t yet committed to his office, he spent a lot of time with me; I didn’t feel like I was just another customer in for an estimate. Additionally, it was important to me that Dr. Pousti is double board-certified, giving him more experience. Inasmuch as I had decided to use silicone implants, the fact that he was board-certified in Reconstructive Surgery in addition to Plastic Surgery was important since until 2006, silicone implants were used only for reconstructive surgeries. Furthermore, Dr. Pousti’s website was by far the most comprehensive and helpful.
The bottom line – I’m glad that I chose to have breast augmentation, and I’m glad I chose Dr. Pousti. Doing your research is key, and when your research merges with the right doctor the results are fantastic. I and so pleased with my results, and I highly recommend Dr. Pousti.
