Large Breast Augmentation Procedures

Large breast augmentations take approximately two hours. In specific cases, certain patients may need to have multiple surgeries so that the breast tissue is given the opportunity to expand and so the breast can support the increased size of the large breast implant. During your consultation at our San Diego office and after a thorough examination, Dr. Pousti will discuss every detail of your large breast augmentation, including the exact size and type of big breast implants he will use and their relative advantages. Large breast augmentations are performed on an outpatient basis at our surgical center in San Diego under general anesthesia.


What to Expect After a Large Breast Augmentation

Large breast augmentations require some extra care with regards to recovery. Bed rest, along with plenty of fluids, is necessary after surgery. Your chest will be sore. When big breast implants are placed under the muscle, there is additional soreness. Dr. Pousti will prescribe appropriate pain management medications. Take your medication regularly and keep your office visits. Usually after a week, you will begin to feel back to normal.

A brassiere and bandeau will be fitted for you during your first week of recovery. These will need to be worn for a month. You will not be able to shower until your sutures are removed. Initially, large breast implants will appear to be slightly higher than normal and your breasts will be swollen. Over time, the big breast implants will descend to a more natural position.


Hi my name is Jenny and if you gotten this far on Dr. Pousti’s web well you are heading in the right direction! You have obviously gone through Dr. Pousti’s bio., credentials and all the wonderful procedures he personally performs! I am writing my personal experience to share with you in hopes you make an educated and personal decision for you and only you! I am a 35 year old mommy of 4 wonderful children and married to a wonderful man! I had complete and full support from husband but ultimately my decision was mine, I was just fortunate to have my man stand by me! When I was 18 year old, I always knew I’d get my boobies done at some point in my life! Timing was everything and that meant making an educated decision! I had my first pair of boobies done about 6 years ago,around the age of 29. I knew I wanted large breasts because mother nature forgot me in that department! haha!! My first experience was a great one! I had an A size bra but went up to a full C. I had a 475cc bag put in and filled to 510cc. About 2 months later I went in and had them filled up to 625cc. Thia now put me up to a D cup!! Wow!! I loved them!! Well after 6 years and another baby, gravity took its toll and they(my twins) were ready for a new found glory! This is when I came across Dr. Pousti, I found him on the web and instantly was taken back with excitement! He had so much to offer with his words and all his patients’ testimonials! I knew I had to get in for a consultation right away! I was on the phone within the day! I can’t explain my first expression of Dr. Pousti because it was simple…HE WAS THE ONE!! I knew he’d be doing my next breast augmentation! He listened very closely and acknowledged every question, concern and desire! I told him I wasn’t messing around and I wanted much bigger boobs this time. I needed more fillage on the top and the side of them! Like I said he gave me every detailed angle I needed to hear! Dr. Pousti was very professional but I he also made me feel I was the most patient of his! I knew he had a gift of passion and detailness! Also another thing I may add, which I think is very important, is that I always had to bring my children with me to my appointments and not once did Dr. Pousti feel they were in the way! They were always welcome! As a mom that scores lots of brownie points! Well I went home totally excited because I knew within a week I’d be making my appointment with Dr. Pousti. I just wanted to give the low down to my husband! I went back about 2 more times before my appointment to give Dr. Pousti some pictures of my wishes!!! He knew I wanted 800cc minimum because there was a lot of room to fill in those babies! I knew he’d grant my wishes!! Dr. Pousti’s main importance is the patient’s desires but he also always gives you any additional information you may need to know medically and so forth! Ok so what did I end up with…A GREAT PAIR OF NEW BOOBS!! I LOVE, LOVE THEM!! Dr. Pousti gave me everything I wanted and then some. I decided to stay with saline because that was the best decision for me! When I came out of surgery he told my husband that I was going to be very happy! He was able to put in an 800cc bag and overfilled them to 1000cc.s!! I knew there was a lot of room up there for some nice, big, gorgeous boobs!! The size I have is definitely a personal choice! I have no regrets of any!! My life style hasn’t changed at all! I am able to fully weight train and do cardio just like I did before!! So from my opinion and experience I hope you know you are going to have a wonderful doctor!! Dr. Pousti has a wonderful staff and his knowledge and experience is the most rewarding I have come across!! Thank you Dr. Pousti, staff, Dr. Rose(anestheologist) and nurses!! You all ROCK!!

Thanks Again!

Implant Exchange, Silicone Gel Implants, Breast Lift:

I first found Dr. Pousti in 2001 in my search for a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Not only was he Board certified but double board certified. I was interested in a Breast Augmentation and was VERY impressed with his mastering art of Cosmetic Surgery. Every picture that I saw on his website was just beautiful.

Once arriving to my initial consultation and meeting Dr. Pousti I knew that he was the surgeon that was to perform my surgery. His staff is first class and helped me with anything and everything I needed. During the consultation he explained the surgery itself in detail and spent a good amount of time with me and answered all of my questions. I never felt like I was rushed or just a number. He really took his time with me and made me feel really comfortable. He is very caring, respectful, compassionate about his work, genuine, has wonderful bedside manners and is just an all around great man. We looked through pictures that I wanted to use as a guide and met with his actual post-op patients that were in the office. I really thought that the patients that shared their wonderful experience with me was very helpful. Before I left his office I knew that I had to schedule my surgery.

My surgery went extremely well. Dr. Pousti was with me the whole time through the morning of my surgery. I really felt like he cared and he even took the time the night of my surgery to contact me to make sure that I was doing ok. I was very happy with my results/experience and decided to go larger in 2002 with Saline implants. The 2nd time around was even easier then the 1st. My incisions were near to nothing. I couldn’t ask for a better surgeon to perform surgery on me and that’s why he performed my 3rd!! I am now 3 weeks post-op from a Breast Augmentation with a lift and switched to Silicone implants. After having the larger implants I decided that I wanted a little more conservative size and downsized and switched to silicone. The 3rd time around I can and will say that I still have the up most respect for Dr. Pousti and the gift that he was given. He does amazing work and will continue to do so. I am VERY happy with my results and can’t wait to see the end result.

Dr. Pousti does amazing work as it speaks for itself. I have and will continue to refer my friends and family to him.

Thanks Dr. Pousti!!!!
