Dr. Tom J. Pousti's Ratings
Dr. Pousti is one of the best plastic surgeons in his field with respect to tummy tuck procedures. I wish that I had gone to Dr. Pousti the first time as I made the mistake of going to a different plastic surgeon in December 2014 to perform my tummy tuck. I chose to have a tummy tuck after two (2) pregnancies left me with excessive loose skin and stretched abdominal muscles. However I naïvely believed that a plastic surgeon could skillfully perform any plastic surgery procedure. The truth is that plastic surgeons develop a specialty over time just as any doctor.
I felt devastated and heartbroken when I saw the final results of my initial tummy tuck. Afterwards, I had consultations with three (3) highly-esteemed plastic surgeons located in Beverly Hills, Newport Beach and San Diego (Dr. Pousti). Each surgeon stated that the results I received were less than optimal. One surgeon characterized the appearance of my tummy this way: "You look like someone who once had a tummy tuck, got pregnant and had a baby." Another surgeon stated flatly that my results were "unacceptable." I broke down crying after hearing these dismal assessments.
The happy ending to this story is that I finally have the flat midsection that I wanted to begin with. Dr. Pousti did an amazing job in successfully tightening my abdominal muscles and removing loose skin. My midsection looks beautiful now. If you should find yourself, as I did, in the unfortunate predicament of ending up with a botched tummy tuck by a lesser skilled surgeon, Dr. Pousti is highly knowledgeable and experienced in performing revisionary surgery for previous tummy tuck patients--he even has a site on his web page devoted to revisionary tummy tuck.
Dr. Pousti's staff (especially Vanessa) was incredibly supportive and kind as well throughout the entire process, which was quite emotional for me, so I cannot post this review without conveying my gratitude and appreciation to them.
The important life lesson for me was this: Always do your research, read reviews and understand what the surgeon's specialty is (ask him/her how many tummy tucks they performed in the past 12 months), because it's your body and you need to ensure that you choose the right surgeon to help you achieve your goals. I highly recommend Dr. Pousti to anyone looking to have a successful tummy tuck procedure.
I cannot say enough about Dr Pousti and his team! Vanessa and Heather have been my go-to girls and Dr Pousti has been understanding throughout my before and after. I did a breast augmentation with silicone and a lift! I am thrilled with my results so far. I have had a little hiccup but that is due to my own problem because I did not take it easy enough. I could not have a better dr by my side through my hiccup! Their office truly makes you feel like you are part of the family!
Dr. Pousti is an AMAZING doctor, I have done a mommy makeover years ago a and decided I wanted to have my implants bigger. I am again extremely happy with him and his staff. I would not go with any other doctor, Dr Pousti is professional and makes one feel very important, he listened to what I wanted and made suggestions as well as his staff. His staff is amazing as well. I recommend him if there were more stars I would give him more, that is how great Dr. Pousti and his staff are.
Dr. Pousti is a great doctor! Very personable and great at what he does! An artistic genius! I could not be happier. He was able to put my safety first and give me the size and shape I wanted! He will be my doctor for my tummy tuck in a year or two! Very gifted doctor with an amazing staff. Mt husband really liked him and felt I was in good hands too!
After years of wanting to have a breast augmentation I finally pulled the trigger and went with Dr. Pousti. I did extensive research throughout the years and was very well informed about the procedure and process.
To be honest the first consultation I had was over 8 years ago. Dr. Pousti was the second. I was able to decide to go with him because he was the only doctor in the San Diego area to show that he had experience working with constricted breasts on his website.
At 2 weeks post-op now, I don't regret my decision to go with Dr. Pousti. After providing a number of examples of the look I was going for and allowing him creative and artistic freedom, I'm extremely happy with the results thus far. I'm healing well and am looking forward to the end result! I guarantee you'll be happy too...I can confidently say that he can achieve whichever look you're going for and then some if you let him work his magic.
After extensive reasearch online i knew Dr. Pousti would be the perfect Doctor. He's very experienced, he's so nice to each of his patients, and his staff is great so you feel super comfortable every step of the way! I couldn't be happier to have made the right choice.
I am only 12 days post op but i just wanted to say how extremely happy i am with my results! I was very nervous at first because i had never had any major surgery done before but i always wanted to get a breast augmentation since i had such small breasts. I was also very nervous because I'm very petite so i was concerned about how larger breasts would look on my small frame but i couldn't be happier now. They are the perfect size and look great! I honestly feel very fortunate to have chosen Dr. Pousti for my breast augmentation, not only is he very experienced and skilled he’s also super nice and caring. Ive been treated great by him and his staff since the first day of consultation to the day of surgery and all the routine check ups after that. On the day of consultation I was lucky to have met with Daisy first. She was amazing and such a nice, cheerful person so i felt very comfortable being there. Vanessa was just as awesome and helpful, she called a couple times before my surgery to see how i was doing and i was grateful for her concern. The staff overall is great, even the staff at the surgery center. Everyone is always welcoming and will answer any questions you might have. Everyone seems to genuinely care about you especially Dr.Pousti. They are always professional so Im very happy i got my surgery done with Dr, Pousti. I never imagined i would have such a great experience throughout the entire process. I felt like i was in great hands the entire time. 10/10 i definitely recommend.
The best Doctor ever. I just had breast reduction and I couldn't be happier with the result. It feels like I had breast implant. He made my breast size like exactly what I wanted. I like that he is a good listener. He knew what I needed exactly. My new breast makes feel more confident.
I had breast augmentation a month ago. I am very satisfied, Dr Pousti is amazing. He loves his job, it's more like a passion to him. He is very experienced too since he has 4 patients a day (way more than most plastic surgeons). His staff was always nice, I got flowers at my 3 post op appointments. . I really love going to this office, they are all so nice, especially the Dr, I feel like he really cares, he even answered my call while he was on vacation. I can really tell he does that as a passion and not only as a job. It's so inspiring, I wish more people were like that. Regarding my boobs, well, I am extremely satisfied, it looks just perfect I am so so happy! I totally recommend Dr Pousti for breast augmentation (and other procedures I am sure), I am so glad I chose him, I definitely made the right decision
I was very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Pousti and his office. I can't think of a thing that I would change. It is always a joy to visit the office and to see the staff as well as the Dr. I am very pleased with my results and am happy that I chose Dr. Pousti for my procedure.
