"I want a Mommy Makeover"

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

This 53-year old patient from Hemet, California (Riverside County) was interested in a mommy makeover. After pregnancy and breast-feeding, she wanted to gain back her pre-pregnancy body. After dedication of diet and exercise, she still felt that she needed plastic surgery to improve her body proportions.

She searched on the internet for a board certified plastic surgeon in the San Diego area and came upon Dr. Pousti’s website. After reviewing all of his patient’s testimonials and all the before and after photos of mommy’s. She also liked that he had several offices in the San Diego area to accommodate his patients. During her consultation, Dr. Pousti introduced her to some patients that had the procedure done as well.

After her examination, Dr. Pousti discussed her options in detail and the patient decided to proceed with tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) and breast augmentation surgery.

Patient Testimonial:

As with anyone who is thinking of having cosmetic surgery, safety is a great concern, and then there are the results. You want to know that at the end of it all, you have the results you were looking for. I spoke with several doctors prior to coming to Dr. Pousti and I did my research on cosmetic surgery. After my first meeting with Dr Pousti, I knew that I found the person I wanted to do my breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Dr. Pousti took the time to explain the process and was more than willing to answer all my questions. He wanted to make sure that I would be happy with the results and reassured me that he would do all that could be done to make it a safe experience. During my initial appointment and all subsequent appointments, I had the opportunity to meet with some of Dr. Poust’s patients who were there for follow-ups. I was able to see his work and ask questions. I found this to be extremely helpful and it gave me great confidence in his abilities.

Well, it’s been 4 months and I have to tell you that I couldn’t be more pleased with the way I look and how well I feel. The first two months are a bit difficult, but as the discomfort begins to subside and the swelling goes down, you can see Dr. Pousti’s amazing work. I have been told that my breast look very natural and have been asked, ” Have you lost weight, you look great. I think that says a lot about Dr. Pousti’s skills.

My experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff has been great. They not only demonstrated professionalism throughout the entire process, but also were very friendly and sensitive to my needs. If I have any other surgery done, it will be done by Dr Pousti.

Notice the difference between the right nipple reduction completed and the appearance of the protrusion of the left nipple.

A tummy tuck involves tightening of the rectus muscles and removal of the loose excess skin which was stretched from pregnancy. The incision is placed low  enough so that it is hidden underneath underwear or bikini bottoms.

The patient is 3-weeks post-op surgery and is very pleased with the results of her mommy makeover. The patient follow’s up with the Doctor via email and telphone. She is recovering with no problems and is very happy at this point in time.
