Eyelid Surgery Testimonials From Dr. Pousti’s San Diego Cosmetic Surgery Patients
Breast Revision / Eyelid Surgery: “Words cannot express how happy I am with the results of my breast augmentation, liposuction and eye lid surgery! The day of the consultation, my husband and I were so surprised how comfortable it was talking with Dr. Pousti about the procedures. He answered all of my questions patiently and thoughtfully and put me completely at ease. At the end of the consultation we both knew immediately he was the right surgeon for me, and scheduled the surgery. I couldn’t have found a better doctor and staff, all of them make me feel so comfortable at all times, and that made this experience and my results better than I could have ever imagined! My husband and I truly enjoy going to his office for post-op visits as everyone has been so warm and caring from the very beginning. Special thanks to Margie and Vanessa for their caring and kindness. I wish my primary physician and nurses treated me this well! Thanks again Dr. Pousti, I will continue to recommend you every chance I get. Breast Revision / Eyelid Surgery: As a fly-in patient from the Pacific Northwest, let me start with the most important aspect of selecting Pousti Plastic Surgery “ the people and their professionalism”. I had been contemplating cosmetic surgery for some time to correct a dropping upper eyelid and I knew that my breasts needed some work. The implants I had done 12 years ago simply weren’t perky anymore and I also wanted to go bigger. Visited several PS’s in our area and never really found a PS that I felt comfortable with, I got the impression that they were hesitant with the size I wanted to go to. My husband and I started looking on the internet and we kept coming up with Dr. Tom Pousti’s name on various sites. Which is where we found Dr. Tom Pousti Surgery website and we were both very impressed with the testimonials on the varies websites as well as Dr. Pousti’s own web pages. I decided to send an inquiry e-mail that was promptly answered by Margie and that in turn lead to a phone discussion with Dr. Pousti. The doctor took all the time that we needed on this phone call. It was very satisfying to finally find a doctor that listened and acknowledged every question, desire and concern I had. One is naturally nervous about going out of country and having surgery done by someone that you have never personally met but when I finally had my in office consultation with Dr. Pousti I was sure that I had made the correct decision. The office consult reviewed all aspects previously discussed and assured me that we were on the same page with what I wanted to achieve in correcting the droppy eyelids and in obtaining extra large breasts that were more centered with a higher nipple position without having to undergo a breast lift. Dr. Pousti, I love your sense of humor . I had my pictures of what I wanted and left the number of cc’s needed up to Dr. |Pousti. At this time I also met some of the doctor’s wonderful office staff. I want to take this time to thank all of the office staff. An extra special thank you to Helen and Daisy whom I got to know very well during my stay in San Diego. The very morning I was off to the surgical center, again it was all about the “wonderful people” that staff the center. From the time you walk into the clinic I was very well taken care of. Thank you to all staff at the surgical center. Sorry that I can’t remember all the names, but you all know who you are. Dr. Pousti came and did his drawings on my eyes and breast and we chatted again about the picture of the new breasts that I wanted. Once in the operating room, Dr. Pousti kindly held my hand while the other doctor put me to sleep. I woke up with new eyelids and the march larger breasts that I had wanted. Dr. Pousti told me that what was needed for the size I wanted was 1220 cc’s of the saline implants. I know sounds kinda scary, but my body type just seems to swallow implants. So basically I went from a C cup to a DDD or G cup. I am extremely happy with the work on my eyelids and excited about my new beautiful big breasts. Thank you Dr. Pousti and all your wonderful staff.

Breast Augmentation / Eyelid Surgery: I imagine you are reading reviews to find the best plastic surgeon. Well your search is over! Dr. Pousti in La Mesa, CA is a Master Plastic Surgeon. I began my search online for a local plastic surgeon that held top credentials and qualifications as well as experience. I quickly came upon Dr. Pousti’s name and read that he was double board certified as a General Surgeon as well as a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and then further on, which detailed where he studied, accomplishments, and some personal information. An additional plus for me was that his father was a plastic surgeon as well. A bit about my experience….I’m 56yrs old and have always wanted larger breasts. It was exhausting looking for bathing suit tops, bras, dresses that would fit nicely. Additionally, I told myself that if my eyelids began to sag, I would have surgery. The time for me was now, so I began my search and found Dr. Pousti on the internet. I called his office and his highly professional, friendly, and knowledgeable office team quickly responded and set up an appointment. Directly upon meeting Dr. Pousti, shaking his hand, and a brief discussion about what I wanted done. I knew I had found my doctor. Dr. Pousti just knew right away what I wanted and explained reiterated exactly what I wanted with a bit of explanation on steps he would take to achieve my desired look. He was not in a rush to schedule surgery, rather said whenever I was ready, we would begin. I was ready and scheduled surgery for breast augmentation and upper eyelid surgery at the same time. I received easy to understand written and verbal instructions both before and after surgery. The hospital staff at Alvarado Physicians Surgery Center was professional, efficient, and caring. Dr. Pousti’s office team was excellent in all areas, they also took the time to call me every day for a week after surgery to check on me. Healing took place quickly. I had surgery at the end of July, visited family in several different states in August, and in September began heavy re-landscaping of my backyard. Dr. Pousti is an absolutely excellent plastic surgeon. My breasts fit my body and look very natural and my eyelids are awesome. A few weeks after surgery, I was with my daughter and became aware that I could “see” so much better. I have two “out of state” family members that are the dears of my heart who will be having breast augmentation/reconstruction in the near future and will be traveling here to have Dr. Pousti perform the surgery. I trust Dr. Pousti and his surgical expertise and give him my highest recommendation. Oceanside, CA
Breast Augmentation / Eyelid Surgery: It has been 4 years since I had my upper eyelid surgery (upper blepharoplasty) and breast augmentation. Everyone always said that I looked “tired” and my eyes were very heavy. I live in La Jolla and was searching for a La Jolla Plastic Surgeon and had heard of Dr. Pousti from his other La Jolla patients. I went and visited his office and had a wonderful experience. I decided that since I was going to have surgery and be put under anesthesia, I might as well also get breast implants (since this was something that I had been thinking about). I had met other La Jolla moms who had had surgeries performed by Dr. Pousti (our kids all go to La Jolla Elementary School) and they were very happy with their results. I had both procedures (eyelid surgery and breast augmentation) and am very happy with my results. THANK YOU DR. POUSTI!! ~C.E. from La Jolla
Eyelid surgery: I had eyelid surgery on April 13, 2007. I am sixty-five (65) years old and it was long over due. What a difference–you are able to not only see my eyes, but my eyelashes. Dr. Pousti is an excellent physician. He is a caring, kind human being. Dr. Pousti treated me with respect and courtesy. His excellent staff is a reflection of his attitude. The procedure was explained to me in detail and all my questions were answered in a professional yet understandable manner. I knew I could always call, if additional questions came to mind. The surgery itself started on time and the Alvarado Facility and its staff was also professional. Dr. Pousti and his staff have my highest recommendation for this type of procedure. K.S.
Eyelid surgery: Looking back at pictures, I realize I always had alot of skin above my eyes. But as I got into my forties, it really began to droop. My friend recommended Dr. Pousti. The staff is really friendly and my consultation wasn’t rushed. I was able to ask and get answers to the questions I wanted to know. One thing I felt Dr. Pousti understood is that I didn’t want to look totally different. I just didn’t want to look tired when I wasn’t. I had my surgery in July. I was awake for the surgery with no pain. I went home and had dinner a couple hours later. Even though I had medicine for nausea, I didn’t need it. I think that is one of the benefits of local anesthesia. I also, didn’t need any of the pain medication. At the office you are given a list of post care instuctions and we went over them all. I made it a point to follow them exactly. I had read enough to know that healing takes time. If I had any questions all I had to do was call. I had some bruising, in about a week it had faded and turned a light yellow. I went into work (with cover cream)ten days later and everyone loved the eyes. I also went to a formal affair seventeen days after and the eyes looked great. They are still getting better all the time. For the first time if I wanted to wear eyeliner, I can. Before the surgery there really wasn’t any room for it. People who know me say they can tell a difference. What I hear most is that my eyes look more open. Someone the other day said they really liked my eye shadow. Same stuff, better eyes. Thank you Dr. Pousti! D.A. Spring Valley, California
Breast Augmentation and eyelid surgery: He and his team are excellent. They go far beyond the call of duty to make everything pleasant pre-op. His attention to detail has made a tricky surgery work out beautifully. I couldn’t be happier. L.R. Encinitas, California
