Testimonial 1: I am a skeptic and don’t easily trust the opinions of others, especially when I think they’re being overly effusive with their praise. As I was sitting in Dr. Pousti’s waiting area reading patient testimonials as I awaited my first consultation with him, I thought to myself, Wow, all of these patients are gushing about Dr. Pousti can he possibly be as wonderful as everyone seems to be saying. It doesn’t seem possible. Imagine my surprise and delight when I found that Dr. Pousti was, in fact, as wonderful as everyone says. He’s warm, honest, calm, and genuinely interested in the goals of his patients. He was incredibly patient, wanting to answer any and all questions I had and never once did I feel like I was taking up a minute of his time. His demeanor, obvious vision talent check out the TON of before and after pics on his website, integrity I was incredibly impressed to see that he lists price ranges on his web site something almost no other doctor does, and clear desire to ensure his patients are comfortable and well-informed how great that he provides info on his web site on how to prepare for your consultation, and makes it possible for potential patients to consult with post-op patients convinced me that Dr. Pousti was the only choice for performing the multiple procedures in which I was interested breast lift, augmentation, arm lift, and tummy tuck . And what an excellent decision that was I could not be happier with the results of my procedures. I worked very hard over a three year period to lose approximately 135 pounds, and it was incredibly important to me to have the best work done on my body as possible. Everything went really well with the actual surgery, and my recovery has been great, too. I appreciated the frequency of my post-op visits with Dr. Pousti made me feel well taken care of and gave me a boost of energy and excitement to help me stay positive And his staff has been wonderful, too especially Daisy Vanessa, the two who have helped me most during my recovery. They are lovely, warm, caring individuals who took great care of me I m currently 9 weeks post-op, and still have a bit of healing to do, but from my perspective the results are already phenomenal. I m actually happier with my breasts than I expected to be, and my belly and arms are awesome Thank you so much, Dr. Pousti You are truly an amazing surgeon and an extraordinary person Testimonial #2: I started my weight loss journey in October of 2005, and reached my goal in July of 2008. In December of 2008, after remaining stable with my weight loss for several months, I decided to have several cosmetic procedures to help me in the areas that I could no longer tone or tighten through regular exercise. In December of 2008 I had a breast lift, augmentation, tummy tuck, and arm lift all performed by the wonderful Dr. Pousti. I am now 1 years post-surgery, and still incredibly happy with the results. I will tell you that weight loss is relatively easy compared to maintenance. Once getting into maintenance-mode, it is really challenging staying focused and motivated, and not slipping into old eating habits. During the weight loss period there is regular frequent internal reinforcement excitement pride with every pound loss, and a desire for more and external reinforcement compliments from others as they notice your weight loss and how good you’re looking. But once that’s over, what’s next particularly after having surgery, I became even more committed to maintaining my weight loss and NEW BEAUTIFUL body But how to stay motivated I needed a new goal, and found an awesome one learn to run a marathon, and do it while helping to raise money for cancer research. I just ran my first marathon, and it was one of the most incredible rewarding experiences of my life. It gave me the renewed motivation energy I needed to stay focused on maintaining my physique I think these race pictures say it all And look at that BOD and you’ll notice how GORGEOUS my arms look. Thanks again, Dr. Pousti, for your wonderful work in helping me achieve these results With Warmth Gratitude.
