Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants) Reviews

Dr. Stein was recommended to me by a friend that had gone to him for Breast augmentation. Dr. Stein and his staff were so profesional and approachable with any question or concern about the procedure. I was so pleased with the work that I went back for a brow lift.

Ever since my son was born I knew that I wanted breast implants. Nursing for 2 years left me with what I would call ýflapjacksý. My appearance is important to me; I worked hard to lose the pregnancy weight but was never satisfied because of my breasts. Once the timing and money was right, I started to check out various plastic surgeons in the area. I went to preliminary consultations with 3 different doctors and was not impressed at all. They all said that I needed augmentation AND a lift, but not one actually sat down and spoke to me about any options or genuinely listened to my questions. None of the doctors I went to made me feel comfortable or at ease with the decision to have elective surgery. I was beginning to think that maybe I was being too sensitive and/or picky and that was just how plastic surgeons operated. Then I met Dr. Poustiý I was referred to Dr. Pousti through a co-worker. He did her breast augmentation 2ish years ago and she is extremely happy with the results (I didnýt even know she had implants, her breasts looked very natural.). I told her about the problems I was having with finding the right doctor and she just gave me Dr. Poustiýs card and told me that my search was over. The next day I made an appointment and hoped she was right. My consultation with Dr. Pousti was wonderful. He took the time to listen to me and I felt very comfortable with him. At first I said that I wanted a lift and augmentation (assuming the other doctors were correct) but when Pousti examined my breasts he told me that a lift would be going overboard and he wouldnýt want to give me more scars than necessary. As soon as he said that I knew I found the right doctor. He cared more about the quality of the results and what I wanted to look like then making more money through additional surgery. He even talked to me about a negative outcome from the augmentation that he wanted me to consider. Since I didnýt have much fatty tissue left in my breasts he explained to me that I would be able to feel the implant through the skin on the underside of my breasts. His honesty about the good and the bad possible outcomes just reassured even more that I had found my doctor. By the time the consultation was over I felt very informed and confident in Dr. Pousti and the procedure. The surgery was easy; I was in and out in less than 4 hours. I donýt really remember too much for a few days following the surgery. I wasnýt in any pain, they make sure you have plenty painkillers to numb you up. I basically just slept and recuperated at my parentýs house and enjoyed the mini-vacation from motherhood. Since you are unable to do much with your arms or the rest of your upper body I highly suggest to anyone who has small children to be away from them for at least the first week. It would be impossible to care for a child in the condition you would be in and probably not very safe either. I went home the second week and I had to be very careful in everything I did. I wasnýt taking painkillers that week so everyday actions you wouldnýt expect to be painful (like bending over to give my son juice) were a problem for a few days and I had to take it easy but by the 10th day the pain had tapered off dramatically. It felt like I overdid a chest workout rather than underwent surgery. Having breast augmentation was one of the best decisions Iýve ever made. Dr. Pousti gave me exactly what I wanted and I cannot express in words how happy I am with the results. I have always been confident in my appearance and I didnýt get the surgery to boost my self-esteem, but I was surprised on how much sexier and feminine I feel with new breasts. Dr. Pousti is a true miracle worker, I know he truly cares about his patients and from the experiences I had with other plastic surgeons Iým pretty sure finding one that cares as much as Dr. Pousti would be virtually impossible. I will never forget Dr. Pousti, his nurses, or receptionists and I will always be thankful to them for their kindness and compassion.

I highly suggest this Dr. I had several things done, rhinoplasty, breast augment and arm lipo. Very professional staff, excellant results on all procedures. constant compliments,my breasts dont have that fake implant look, they look very natural. the discomfort even after having 3 procedures done in 1 day was minimal. They were very attentive to all of my needs. The Dr. was very honest about the procedures and the expected results and risks. There was no sugar coating here. He didnt promise miracles, which is nice, after hearing so many people promising the moon and stars. he was very realistic about the outcome. I was pleased to say the least with the results. I went in hoping to just make improvements and the results exceeded my expectations. If you want a very skilled, professional, honest Dr. who can provide outstanding results, then Dr. Deleeuw is for you! I would not hessitate to refer him to friends and family, and would definately use him again for any other procedures I may be interested in for the future.

Thank you so much for your excellent care. I am extremely happy with the breast augmentation and liposuction Dr. Pousti performed. Dr. Pousti really earned my respect at the initial consultation by having his current patients in various stages of recovery there at his office for me to interview. I enjoyed and learned a lot from their first-hand accounts. This contact with current patients, Dr. Poustiýs careful listening to my likes and dislikes, and his experience sealed the deal for me in choosing him to be my surgeon. The staff was also incredibly knowledgeable and well trained to answer any question I had throughout the whole process. Dr. Pousti was also very thorough during my recovery immediately following surgery. I was surprised at how little discomfort there was! I would definitely return to Dr. Pousti should the need arise, and I highly recommend him to my friends and family. Thank you, Dr. Pousti, for giving me more confidence in my appearance and myself. Sincerely, `G.N. Indian Wells, CA

I became interested in a breast augmentation after nursing my three children. This surgery is my second with Dr.Pousti. My first procedure was with the saline implant and my second was with the silicon gel implant. I knew by seeing Dr.Pousti's work that he had a way with giving a natural look to a breast augmentation. Dr.Pousti, is a complete gentleman and very knowledgeable about cosmetic procedures. Due to a small amount of body fat, my saline implants were rippling and I wanted to go up in implant size. So Dr.Pousti, recommended the silicon gel implants which I love, love, love. I no longer have rippling and they feel and look more natural. I now have the Cadillac implants as Dr. Pousti would say, and he knew what would work best for my body. His staff is excellent in every way and the surgery center was amazing!! As for the recovery the second procedure was a piece of cake and no pain involved. I am more confident in my own skin now than ever before, Thank You Dr. Pousti and staff.....

dr Mitts performed my Breast augumentation, in 1989. It is now 2006 I now live in Australia, and my breast are perfect. People who dont know I have implants, dont know because they look so real. My scars have vanished along with liposuction scars. ( also had lipo at the same time on my arms, back, and beneith my butt. ) My breast have optimum cleavage because Dr Mitts asked how much "cleavage" I wanted and gave me what I asked for. I was born with a concaved dent between my breast and he covered that by adding volume to his work, it is no longer visible. I am almost 30, and my breast are no where near saggy in any way. It was also affordable and his office is professional and family opperated. I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone.
