Mommy Makeover Testimonial

Monday, February 28th, 2011

I am a mother of 8 children and my youngest is 13 so I thought that now was a good time to get a tummy tuck. After having all of my children my stomach was not in the best shape. I pride myself on how I look and have always taken care of my figure. I go to the gym and watch my weight but could never tone up my stomach no matter how hard I tried. I was really tired of being self conscience about how I looked in a bathing suit and wore clothes that flattered my figure but hid my stomache. I had thought of getting a tummy tuck for over five years and came to the conclusion that if I didn’t do it now I never would.
The pros of getting a tummy tuck have outweighed all the cons! I love how my stomach looks now and how my confidence level has skyrocketed. I can’t wait to get a bikini for summertime!

I had chosen three different Dr.’s to go to but Dr. Pousti was the first on my list and after visiting with him and his staff on my initial visit I was sold. I really had a good feeling about him and had no hesitations whatsoever. He answered all my questions, spent time with me when needed, his bedside  manner was excellent, the professionalism and courtesy of the staff was exceptional, and the after care follow up has been awesome. Everything was perfect from day one…

Thank You Dr. Pousti and Staff…You all ROCK!

Mommy Makeover

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

This 39-year old patient from Diamond Bar, California was left with excess skin, stubborn fat and had lost volume in her breasts after having 2 children. The patient was interested in a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), breast augmentation, and breast lift surgery (mastopexy) also known as a “Mommy Makeover”.

The patient wanted an experienced mommy makeover surgeon who is also Board Certified in Plastic Surgery. After extensive research on the Internet, the patient found Dr. Pousti. The patient met with Dr. Pousti at his Murrieta office, the patient was able to speak with other patients who had a mommy makeover and were willing to share their experience with her. The patient was convinced Dr. Pousti was the best surgeon for her.

Because of the loose excess skin from significant weight loss, Dr. Pousti suggested an Extended Tummy Tuck would be beneficial for her, and also give her nice long term result. The patient decided to proceed with surgery.

Extended tummy tuck (standard tummy tuck with back lipectomy) measured and marked to achieve as much symmetry as possible.

Saline breast implants were used and filled to 570cc in both breasts.
