Granny Makeover


No one can escape time and getting older, but there are a number of plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures available that can keep grandmas looking their best for years to come! Gravity and the natural deterioration of muscle and tissue can have a negative effect on a woman’s body over time, affecting them both physically and emotionally. Oftentimes it isn’t possible to restore one’s youthful body through just diet and exercise alone. Luckily, for the grandmas of the world who desire a firmer, tighter body, Dr. Pousti can perform a Granny Makeover.

The Granny Makeover procedure is actually a combination of several different procedures that, when used together, produce amazing results. Since every woman has different needs, each Granny Makeover can vary in procedures, thus tailoring each surgery to the patient’s restorative needs. Some of the procedures that can be combined in a granny makeover are Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, Breast Lift, Breast Augmentation, and Reduction.

The Procedure

Markings are always performed prior to surgery

An extended tummy tuck involves removal of excess skin from the back and flanks

Muscle laxity present after weight loss

Muscles are brought together creating a more desirable waistline

A stage 3 breast lift and implants are used to achieve desired breast size and fullness

Immediately After Granny Makeover

Since the granny makeover is comprised of multiple procedures, and every granny makeover is different for each patient’s needs, the actual surgeries and surgery lengths vary. Normally, the Granny Makeover surgery is performed in either one or two surgeries, with each individual surgery ranging in from 3 to 6 hours. In regards to the breast augmentation portion of a granny makeover the are a variety of factors that affect the procedure. Placement of the implant is usually centered on the nipple-areola. Often, placement above or below the muscle is decided on an individual basis. Likewise, the incisions used to place the implant vary with patient preference and anatomy. All this and more will be discussed during your personal and confidential granny makeover consultation with Dr. Pousti.

For all the grandmothers that have always wanted or dreamed of a Makeover, I want to say that my “Granny Makeover” is the best decision I have ever made! I’m a mother of 5 grown children and I will soon have 13 grandchildren. Over the years I dreamed of a mommy makeover but being a single mom and raising 5 children took priority over my wants

So, about 2.5 years ago, at the age of 56, instead of having a mommy makeover I decided to begin the “Granny” makeover process – it all started with my daughter, we had been talking for years about both of us having makeovers when she was done having children, so a little over 3 years ago we got down to serious business and started looking for plastic surgeons. I work in the medical field and consulted with several plastic surgeons in OC, where I live . She started her search in the Temecula / San Diego area. That was where she found Dr Pousti!!

I will never forget her excitement when she told me she found the Dr she wanted to do her surgery and how impressed she was with him and his staff. She went into high gear and scheduled her mommy makeover surgery a few weeks later. There was no way we could have the surgery together because we were counting on each other for help. Besides, I figured I would observe the process first and make my decision after watching what she went through, after all I wasn’t 30 or even 40 – I was 56!! Her mommy makeover was the end of April 2012. I was so impressed by her results and the fact that Dr. Pousti made a house call a couple days after her surgery. Wow who does that these days! I didn’t have to think twice – He was going to be my surgeon too!!

I started my Granny makeover by scheduling a consult with Dr Pousti in May, and then scheduled my breast augmentation and lift for the end of August. It’s now been 2.5 years and I am thrilled with the outcome!! I am amazed that it could make such a difference – my breasts look fantastic. Daisy or Vanessa called me everyday for 2 weeks to check on me. I do want to stress that I followed Dr. Pousti’s orders to a T, I wanted to make sure I didn’t do anything to jeopardize his artistic work as a surgeon! In February 2013 I went back for my 6 month check up and scheduled my tummy tuck for July 1st, 2013, 10 months after my BA and lift. I couldn’t wait to get rid of my pouch!! No matter what I did over the years after 5 kids it wasn’t going to go away, I know this sounds crazy because a tummy tuck is major surgery but I had an unbelievable easy recovery, part of it might be due to the fact that I only had me to worry about, no young children. Again, I followed all of Dr Pousti ‘s orders, I took 3 weeks off of work and his staff called me everyday til I went back! This July will be my 2 year TT anniversary!
How time flies when you are having fun!!

For all of you “Granny’s ” out there that have been contemplating a makeover for years, it’s never too late – whether you live near or far get in touch with Dr. Pousti and “go for it” he is an exceptional surgeon and the care you receive from Dr. Pousti and his staff is unmatchable. It’s the best thing I ever did for myself. It boosted my confidence, my clothes fit better and I feel younger!! I don’t feel or look 59 and I’m having so much fun! I look at myself in the mirror and I think OMG this body actually belongs to ME!! And it makes my day!!

Thank you Dr. Pousti I owe it all to you!!
