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.
