Mommy Makeover: Case Number 4822: Arm Lift, Breast Lift, Mommy Makeover
This 54 year old female from Newberry Springs, California had significant weight loss but with extra loose skin and adipose tissue of the bilateral upper arms and along the infraaxillary and upper body area. After all of her hard work, the droopy breasts and extra skin made her unhappy with the look of her body. She desired to remove the excess skin through a breast lift, bilateral arm lift, and an upper body lifting as well. Through internet research, the patient found www.realself.com to be very helpful in her search for a board certified plastic surgeon who could help her achieve her goals. She came across Dr. Pousti and was impressed with his experience and before and after photos. She scheduled her consultation. Dr. Pousti determined the patient would be an excellent candidate for the procedures of interest and proceeded with surgery. The markings and measurements were performed the evening before surgery and everything was double checked the following morning. The patient and Dr. Pousti had a chance to discuss the procedure one last time and spoke regarding the patients questions and concerns. She is currently 6 Months post surgery and doing great. She is very happy with her results. Patient Testimonial: Here is why I choose the Doctor I did; Based on RealSelf.com he had 486 reviews and a 5 Star rating. (Believe me I read hundreds of those reviews) by the time I made my 1st consultation, I had gone through his entire web site. I had an appointment 1 1/2 week later. I was greeted with a smile, and offer of water of a granola bar, after about 5 minutes I was brought into an exam room dressed into a gown open to the front,. GULP. The Office staff put me perfectly at ease, explains what we would discuss with the doctor today, showed me some photos had me fill out a survey how I found him, when we checked the Real Self web site by this time he has 604 reviews and still a 5 Star rating. Dr. Pousti put us (my husband and myself) very at ease, he felt it was important to tell us about himself other than just his education. His marriage, children, family, where he was from, what he loves about what he does. We got an all around feeling about him. we discussed what I wanted, my problem areas and what bothered me the most. He is the one who suggested I do not do the augmentation at the same time as the breast lift as the healing process with the added weight of implants. Dr. Pousti explained that I may not need the augmentation as he can take extra tissue from the problem area that hangs out over my bra straps under my arms and insert it into my breast's to make them fuller (yippie) he can do all three surgeries at the same time, as this is a lot at least 5 hours worth of surgery time. Another plus out of all the other Doctors I consulted with, Dr. Pousti’s office was the only office to have actual patients for me to see and speak with about their experience. I saw at least 2 patients each time I went into the office, I saw patients at 2, 3 and 6 weeks out from surgery. Various stages of healing scar width evenness of the incision and breast lifts all were impressive.
