I?ve wanted a breast augmentation ever since my breasts stopped developing at the age of 16. I went to a seminar Dr. Pousti had a couple years ago where previous patients came to speak about their experiences. However, I didn?t seriously consider undergoing surgery until about 9 months ago. I researched the risks online, read about what to expect before, during & after surgery, read testimonials on Dr. Pousti?s website and browsed the pictures. I liked what I saw and read so I scheduled my initial consultation. Dr. Pousti was always a gentleman and answered any questions I or my boy-friend had honestly. There was never any pressure to go a certain size or go with saline or silicone. I simply told Dr. Pousti what I wanted and provided him with photos, as a point of reference, to make sure we were on the same page.
On the day of surgery I remember being very anxious but excited. The waiting was the worst part because of the anticipation of undergoing surgery. I remember being escorted back to the surgery room where it was quite cold. I lay down and the surgery staff began to prep me for surgery. The anesthesia was hooked up to my IV and Dr. Pousti said, ?You?re going to feel a little sting but that?s normal?that?s just the anesthesia working.? I felt the sting and about 2 seconds later I was out cold. The next thing I remember is being stirred from my slumber. When I finally came to, I remember feeling very groggy (my eyelids were very heavy so I could barely keep my eyes open) and my legs wouldn?t stop shaking. I felt no nausea and was thankful that I didn?t. I was given something intravenously to stop the shaking and laid there for about 20 minutes until I felt ok to get up to go home. Dr. Pousti came over and told me that everything went smoothly, that I did great and that I?m going to have beautiful results. Come to find out later, the surgery itself only took about 45 minutes! My boy-friend came back to the post op area where I was resting and helped me out of the surgery clothes and into my street clothes. My chest felt very tight and I made a conscious effort not to constrict my chest muscles. The first three days of recovery were the worst because of the restrictive movement but fortunately my boy-friend was there to take care of me. Per doctor?s post op instructions I took my prescribed medication every 4-6 hours to make sure I felt minimal discomfort. All in all, the actual physical pain was minimal because I went in expecting the worst.
I am now 5 months post op and love my results. I wanted to look proportional and natural and that?s exactly what Dr. Pousti helped me to achieve. I feel more feminine & sexy, my clothes look better and shopping is certainly more fun both for me and my boy-friend. I went bra shopping for the first time after the surgery and was shocked that my cup size is as big as it is?a 34D coming from a small 34A/B. I would recommend anyone who is considering a breast augmentation to Dr. Pousti and his very capable hands. He does not charge for his consultations so you can schedule an appointment to speak with him and his staff as many times as you need to. Additionally, it was very beneficial to me to meet his previous breast augmentation patients, in person at his office, to answer any questions I had but more importantly to see and touch the results. Yes, I said touch the results. Of course I felt uncomfortable touching a complete stranger?s breast but after the first few women I got over it. Now I am returning the favor for Dr. Pousti?s new and prospective patients ? something very uncharacteristic for me to do.
So, a sincere thank you to you Dr. Pousti and staff, for my wonderful new breasts and a continually pleasant experience. I know I will be back for additional cosmetic ?maintenance? once the aging starts to show on my face, when the pounds start accumulating on my stomach, hips & thighs and when my buns start heading south Aaaaa?the joys of getting old?thank goodness for Dr. Pousti.
