Labial Reduction Testimonials From Dr. Pousti’s San Diego Cosmetic Surgery Patients

Breast Augmentation/Labial Reduction :

I am 31 years old, a teacher and a research practitioner. It was just seven weeks ago that I had both breast augmentation and labia minora reduction procedures by Dr. Tom Pousti. Since both procedures are in very sensitive and private areas, I would not go to just any plastic surgeon. I had many friends make recommendations to me as to where to go and had gone to approximately a dozen consultation (maybe more) from Coronado to Beverly Hills. Once I narrowed it down to the top two, I consulted with them again. I chose Dr. Pousti because he had the best credentials, he is a true artist, and he is the most personable doctor you will ever come across. I know I could trust him and I do not trust many people in general. He took A LOT of time to answer all of my questions and provided me with his expertise in assisting me to “design” the most natural look that I was unfortunately not born with. Additionally, he was very nurturing throughout the entire experience. I am naturally a very anxious person and was quite nervous. I never once felt like “just another patient”. I always felt taken care of.

After I had made my decision, I collected various pictures of what I did not want to look like as well as what I had wanted. Dr. Pousti studied these photos I had brought to him and then asked me questions and together we designed my new breasts and labia minora. You are probably thinking what is that? It is the stretchy inner lips of the vagina and I was very uncomfortable with the way mine appeared. It interfered with my sexual encounters since I was a late teen. I was embarrassed and I can say I am extremely happy with the results. (I had asked my OBGYN on various occasions if they could do this procedure and they did not recommend it. They even had said that there was a good chance of losing sensitivity during intercourse. Well, I can vouch that that is not true. It is even more wonderful than it was before!).

Before I really speak to my results, let me tell you about the actual day of the procedure. I showed up early on Friday morning at the Grossmont Surgical Center. The nurses were absolutely wonderful! They brought me into a little area where I changed out of my clothes and into my gown and slippers. Sounds like I was about to get a spa treatment, huh? Well, that is how they treated me. I sat in a very comfortable lazy-boy chair. The nurses put warm blankets on me and gave me something to feel very relaxed, but not too relaxed because I was to speak with Dr. Pousti one last time prior to being rolled into surgery. We looked at all of the pictures again and had conversations in regard to my desired results. I couldn’t have felt more comfortable! Then I began to feel the anxiety of pre-surgery and the nurses took care of that with a little IV. Didn’t feel a thing! Next, I was introduced to the other staff members ~ all very nice and taking care of my every need. Shortly after, I was rolled in but I do not remember.

Next thing I knew, I had breasts and an improved vaginal appearance! I felt no pain. My friend was there to take me home, but first they gave me a couple of pain-killers. It was a short ride home (I slept through it) and I walked up my stairs to my bedroom. My bed was arranged with three pillows propped up and smaller pillows for my arms to rest on. I also had a pillow for under my butt to prevent swelling in the labia area. (I had set this all up prior to leaving the house that morning which I highly recommend). I had all of my pills within reach as well as the remote to the TV and bottled water with a straw. The fridge was stocked and my friends who helped me the first three days were great!

I saw Dr. Pousti on Monday and everything looked great. My breasts were a little swollen and my labia minora looked better than I had imagined! The first week I was slow but moving around by day 5 with no problems. If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, I would highly recommend Dr. Pousti as your surgeon. I am probably the most high maintenance patient Dr. Pousti has ever had “to deal with” and can be very difficult because of my very high expectations, but Dr. Pousti couldn’t have done a better job. Now I am back for laser hair removal!

Labial Reduction:

I had been insecure about my labia for many years, and finally decided to have labia reduction surgery. I did lots of research online, and was very impressed by all of Dr. Pousti’s before and after pictures. Today I am 7 weeks post-op, and I could not be happier with the results. It looks even more beautiful than I could have imagined! I encourage anyone who is considering the procedure to do it. You will not regret it! I only wish I had done it sooner!


Labial Reduction:

I am one of those people who never thought they would have plastic surgery. Just didn’t think it would ever happen.. Not vain enough to deal with the pain I guess. One day while watching TV I came across a show discussing Labia Reduction. I had never known that such a procedure even existed…but after years of discomfort and feeling that it was something I had to live with, I was determined to find out all I could.

From my very first contact with Dr Pousti’s office I was extremely happy with the way the staff and Dr Pousti treated me. This is not something I have ever discussed with anyone before and was expectedly reserved in speaking about it. The staff was kind, courteous and professional at all times.

The day of my surgery I felt that every effort was made to ensure my comfort both physically and emotionally.

I spent a lot of time on the internet researching this procedure, reading all I could and looking at pre & post operation pictures. I can honestly say that, in my opinion, my own results looked better at 3 weeks post op then many pictures I saw of women 3 months post op. I fully expect after 3 months I will show no signs of the surgery..

I will enthusiastically refer anyone considering plastic surgery to consult with Dr Pousti.

Labial Reduction:

I had labial reduction surgery a few months ago and I’m extremely pleased with the results. Also, this is very important: extended labia is not something women discuss with even their closest friends, so I was very appreciative of the discretion given my case.

First a little history: I have always had somewhat of a problem with extended labia, even as a teenager. I was used to the inconvenience of having to push my labia open when I urinated (so I wouldn’t wet myself or the seat), but as time went by, I developed a more severe problem. I gave birth three times in my 30’s, and then I started menopause early at age 44. After a couple of years into menopause, my condition got more inconvenient and uncomfortable (no more bike rides, for example). Eventually I found that I had to push open my labia in order to have sex. Yikes, I said to myself – it’s time to get something done! I did a lot of research on the internet and found myself going back again and again to Dr. Pousti’s website. I made an appointment and when I arrived, I was treated with sensitivity and discretion. Everyone has experienced those “loud mouth” people in other offices – yelling out your name and problem for everyone to hear. Well, you don’t have to worry about that at Dr. Pousti’s office. Everyone acts like you’re there just to have a little chat with the doctor :-) And by the way, you will enjoy your visit with Dr. Pousti. He is really “with” you every time you see him. He is genuinely concerned and takes all the time you need for questions. His touch is very gentle, considerate, and professional.

The first thing I remember after waking from my surgery was Dr. Pousti’s face. He was patting my shoulder telling me I would feel no pain. Oh sure, I thought to myself. Well, it was true – he was right – I felt no pain! But I did feel a little pinch, so when I got home I took a pain pill, then I went to the bathroom. The little pinch turned out to be the sanitary napkin pinching my skin. After adjusting the pad, I was fine and never had to take another pill. This was the most amazing surgery I’ve ever experienced (and I’ve had plenty). And the best thing of all is that I am more than happy with the results. I feel “normal” again!

Ask Dr. Pousti if you can do this for yourself after surgery: I have a dark tan complexion (similar to Dr. Pousti) and I scar easily. When the incision was healed, I felt scar tissue forming, so I purchased some Maderma cream (for healing scar tissue) and put that on morning and night. It made a big difference in my comfort and the healing process. I was afraid I was going to get as tight as a virgin – but maybe that’s what “you” will want! :-)

Get in there and get your problem removed. I’m sorry I waited so many years. Oh, and if you’re wondering, yes sex is better than ever because Dr. Pousti was extra gentle and careful around that “sensitive” spot.

Labial Reduction:

I had a labial reduction two months ago with Dr. Pousti. This is something that I never discussed with anyone and honestly didn’t even know I had a problem until my sister pointed it out! Once I realized I wasn’t the norm, I started looking on-line and found Dr. Pousti. I read the testimonials that other patients had written and made an appointment for a consultation.

Since this is an embarrassing thing I was worried about going in, but everyone in his office is very professional and caring. Dr. Pousti explained the procedure to me and told me that I’d need someone to take care of me for a few days and honestly that was the hardest part! I didn’t want to tell anyone, but I told my mom and she was very understanding and supportive.

The procedure was only about 45 minutes and I was home watching TV an hour later. The recovery wasn’t painful, but I did have to stay in bed for about a week.

If you are considering this surgery, I would highly recommend it. I am very happy with my results and the office staff and Dr. Pousti were wonderful through the whole experience. I only wish that I would have known about this and would have done it 10 years ago!

Labial Reduction:

Two weeks ago I had labial reduction surgery and I could not be more pleased. It looks so good and at only two weeks post surgery! I went in for a consult with Dr. Pousti and three weeks later I was having the surgery done. I am 23 years old and suffered problems from my labia minora since my very early teens. A few years ago I heard about the procedure and up until that time, I didn’t know there was anything wrong with me. After doing more and more research, I decided I wanted to have it done. I had it narrowed down to three doctors and out of those three, Dr. Pousti was the best doctor, in my eyes for the job. The day of my surgery, I was very nervous, like to the point of almost having a panic attack. Dr. Pousti reassured me everything would be fine and not to worry. One of my fears was pain. He told me that when I woke up, I would feel no pain and I didn’t. I could not believe how little pain this surgery involved. I was amazed when I walked right out of the hospital and ate my lunch on my ride back home to Palm Springs. Let me say that Dr. Pousti is the most considerate doctor that I have ever seen. He really cares about his patients. His staff is incredible. Everybody is so friendly and they make you feel so relaxed. Even the hospital where my procedure was performed was great. They just really make you feel good about yourself. If you are thinking of plastic surgery, Dr. Pousti is, in my opinion, the best doctor in the world! If I ever want more plastic surgery, he is the ONLY doctor I will let operate on me.

Labial Reduction:

I was bothered by my labia minora and Dr. Pousti was able to help me by removing the extra tissue. He made me feel really comfortable and he wasr really nice and comforting through out the whole procedure. I was really nervous at first but Dr. Pousti made me feel like many other people have the same anxieties about their bodies. Thanks for everything. I would tell everyone who has this issue to go to Dr. Pousti.

Thank you!
