I had always had nicely sized and shaped breasts. I never ever thought that I would be the one to be getting this surgery done, but after three wonderful, breast fed babies the thought wouldn't leave my mind. After each subsequent baby, my breasts got lower and lower and emptier and emptier. I thought about it a lot and I wanted to look good in clothes, in a bathing suit and of course for my adoring husband. After I had finished breast feeding my third baby, I starting doing some research on the internet and decided to take the leap and contacted Dr. Pousti from his website. I was impressed that he had done the breast lift procedure many times and once I met with him I was convinced that I was doing the right thing. He made me feel comfortable with the procedure and listened to my concerns. I was on the fence about whether or not to have the lift alone or to go for the implant as well. Dr. Pousti went over all the options with me and helped me to make my decision. I couldn't wait for my surgery date! Dr. Pousti gave me my youthful breasts back. I love to wear clothes now and I feel confident with my body again. I am so glad that I didn't wait even one more day longer.

was one of those women that said that I would never get plastic surgery and actually use to make fun of women that had breast augmentation. I had killer boobs and was always extremely happy with them. Boy did that change after children and getting back in shape. I found Dr Pousti while doing a search on the Internet. I visited many sites and found his to be most informative. I browsed all the pictures and read many testimonials and decided to make a consultation appointment. I wanted to check out a few doctors and go with the one I felt most comfortable with. When I called the office staff was so friendly I felt important not like a typical doctors office. Lara accommodated my time, which happen to be after work and very convenient. I was a little nervous about my consultation so I brought my friend with who had also thought about possibly getting a breast augmentation down the road. When we walked into the office we were greeted immediately with smiles. I had gone into the appointment thinking that I wanted the Silicone-Gel Implants for the more natural feel and look and also wanted to possibly go through the arm-pit for minimal scar. I was shown into the room by Vanessa who was sweet as can be. We discussed why I was here and what I wanted as far as size and implants. I was then asked if I wanted to see patients that had their breast augmentation. I thought what a great idea to actually see and talk to patients. I was shown 4 different stages starting with most recent to eldest. I was amazed at the fact that I could ask the women any questions about the doctor and procedure and I actually got to touch them and see what they will feel like on me! This was unbelievable! It made me feel so comfortable already... Then Dr. Pousti came in. I felt so comfortable with him. He was very understanding and non-pressuring. He told me that I didn't need them but I felt different. After 2 children and breastfeeding for 2 years then getting back in shape losing body fat, my once nice full boobs (36C) went from much to little (36A) and I was not happy with them. I didn't want to have to put my inserts into my 36A bra anymore. I wanted to have full beautiful breasts that I could wear anything and look fabulous. I also wanted them to look natural to fit my body. I did not want to be top heavy or look like I had a breast augmentation. I spoke to Dr. Pousti about the options I had. Silicone vs. Saline, Bigger vs. Smaller, and the incision point. Dr. Pousti had made it very clear that it was the best and most accurate method through the areola. So I agreed since he is the expert. After weighing out my options I decided to go with Saline Implants. I came into the appointment thinking that I was going to go see another doctor and then decide but after that experience I decided there was no need. I wanted Dr. Pousti to do my procedure. I was very nervous about making the surgery appointment and it took me one month after my initial consultation to make the decision. I scheduled my appointment for Tuesday October 3rd. I was jumping off of the walls and felt like the next 3 weeks were going to take forever. I had a pre-op appointment and was able to discuss any questions or concerns. We went over size and cleavage pictures to see which ones I liked. I knew I did want more cleavage towards to middle rather then on the outer. Dr. Pousti made me feel very confident in my decision. Ultimately I left the size up to Dr. Pousti. He knew I wanted to look natural and that's all that mattered. The day of the surgery came and I wasn't nervous more like excited. I knew I would be not working out for 2 weeks so I hit the gym hard before the surgery. When I arrived at Alvarado Surgery Center I was once again greeted with kindness. I was taken to surgery prep. The nurse was extremely kind. The Anesthesiologist was very nice also. Dr. Pousti came in and reassured me everything will be fine and then I walked to the surgery room. Seeing the surgery room was a little bit frighting with all the equipment and lights. But as soon as I saw Dr. Pousti I felt ten times better. They had me lay perfectly center on the bed and then I was talking to Dr. Pousti and then the next thing I remember was waking up really groggy in the recovery room with an enormous breasts!!!! I looked down and couldn't believe it! I had did it!! The recovery was harder on me then most of the women I spoke with. Vanessa called me the next day to see how I was doing. I think this has something to do with me working out at the gym and me having quite a bit pectoral muscle. The recovery was very painful for me. I had a reaction the percocet so I was only able to take vicadin extra strength which didn't do much. The wunderbra I call it that you get strapped into pushes the breasts down but at the same time can be painful if you strap it too tight. My pectoral muscles were very sore and continued to be for at least 2 weeks. My incision in the areola was healing very well. Its been 2 months and you can hardly notice the scar!!! No one ever said that something good isn't worth the pain! Sort of like childbirth!!! And both was definitely worth it!! My advice to anyone thinking about breast augmentation is to do it for yourself not anyone else. Then you will be most happy with your outcome. Dr. Pousti and his staff are top notch AAA rated. You get AAA service with a friendly smile. I would recommend him to anyone. I love my new breasts. Dr Pousti did an out of this world amazing job!!! Thank you Dr. Pousti, Vanessa, Shashan, and the rest of Dr. Pousti's staff. You all contributed to me feeling like me again.

I would highly recommend Dr.Moody. I have wanted a breast augmentation since I was 16. Im 22 now and I decided to go for it. I went to another Dr and had already paid my $500 dollars. I wanted a second opinon just to make myself fell better so I went to Dr.Moody. That changed everything! Dr.Moody was awesome. Not only is she a great doctor but she's a great person. She explained everything to me. I knew excatly what to expect and I knew she was going to give it her best. Needless to say I lost my $500 dollars, but it was way worth it I would have lost more than that if I had to. Dr.Moody done my breast augmentation and its only been a month and you can hardly see my scars. My breast are perfectly even and I have no more pain. Im so glad I did it, but even better im so glad she was the Dr that done it. Once again I highly recommend Dr Moody

I had a breast augmentaion seven years ago and I am 100% happy. He gave me exactly what I was looking for, in fact I plan to return to his office for replacement of my saline implants for silicone when the time is right for me. I have already recommended my friends to him for the same procedure. Wonderful surgeon, highly recommend!

It has been four years since my breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Brian Howard, and I could not be more pleased with my results. A friend of mine highly recommended Dr. Howard after learning I was interested in having my breasts augmented. After attending my consultation appointment, I felt comfortable enough before leaving his office to schedule my surgery date. Dr. Howard thoroughly explained the surgical procedure and recuperation period and eased my concerns about having the surgery prior to starting my family. Recently, Iýve given birth to my first child and have not had any difficulties breast feeding. Dr. Howard is a perfectionist and I highly recommend him.
