Otoplasty Testimonials From Dr. Pousti’s San Diego Cosmetic Surgery Patients
|Frequently Asked Questions
Hi Dr. Pousti and staff.
I just wanted to thank you for making my surgery experience a more pleasant one. And for anyone thinking about choosing Dr. Pousti I highly recommend him. I had otoplasty done about a month ago, and my ears look great! Dr. Pousti and his staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. They made sure I spoke with other patients of his so I could find out more about Dr. Pousti and their opinions of him. They love him of course; why else would I trust him with my ears? Even from the first visit he took plenty of time with me answering questions and making me feel at ease. The staff at the surgery center were amazing also. The nurses and my anesthesiologist were so nice and responsive. I’m really happy with my whole experience there. Other than a little sore throat I felt fine after the surgery. Dr. Pousti even called me later that day to see how I was doing. What a nice guy. So to anyone considering having their surgery done by Dr. Pousti, I think you’ve found an excellently qualified and gifted person for the job.

For as long as I can remember, I hated how my ears stuck out. In elementary school, I acquired the nickname “Dumbo” which of course was devastatin to an 8 year old. I spent my whole life feeling self-conscious about my ears and always wore my hair down. I even had a short hair cut to better conceal my protruding ears. While I have always considered myself an attractive young woman, my ears were the main sourse of insecurity. When I finally decided to have the otoplasty surgery performed, I wanted to find a doctor who was experienced, professional and classy and this is exactly what I found in Dr. Pousti. My experience with Dr. Pousti and his staff was a pleasure from the very beginning all the way to now. I was always treated with kindness, care and genuine concern about what I wanted. Any concerns I had and my satisfaction with the results of my surgery were important to them. The surgery itself was fairly painless and I enjoyed a speedy recovery. In fact, I was able to return to work within a week. As for the results of my surgery, I could not be happier. My ears look beautiful! I can now wear my hair in fun “up do’s” and pony tails and I can go swimming without feeling insecure about my ears. I am so grateful to Dr. Pousti for the wonderful work he did and for making me feel special during my whole experience. Thank you so much!
Hey Dr. Pousti and Girls! I have finally (after 3 years) typed in my testimonial…. sorry for the delay, but having the handsomest ears in town has increased my social life! hehehe anyway, here goes:
When I finally decided to have Otoplasy surgery, I did a little bit of shopping around first. I saw two other Plastic Surgeons. I had my consultations with them and I was very dissappointed. Then I found Dr. Pousti’s website and I emailed him right away. I showed up to his office and the girls at the desk were simply GREAT! They truly are professionals and they know exactly how to make people feel welcome (Vanessa, you girls are awesome!) Dr. Pousti came out to greet me with a smile and a handshake, and the experience of it all just put me at ease and I knew it right then and there: he was THE ONE! I felt I was meeting a friend for coffee rather than a Doctor for a surgery consultation. Dr. Pousti is very well spoken and a great listener. He truly cares about the person in front of him and their wishes and concerns. We talked about my requests and my expectations and he told me what could be done and what to look forward to. Plain and simple. Fast-Forward a few weeks and there I was in the hospital bed, looking up at the surgery room’s staff, also very professional and always making ME their highest priority. I woke up over 2 hours later with a huge headdress, looking like Tinky-Winky on crack and a bad sorethroat that lasted a few days. Good excuse to have icy cold sorbet… hm, come to think of it; I should’ve called those plastic surgery shows to tape the whole thing… rats! Anyway, Dr. Pousti called me that evening to check on me, and the days after, just to make sure I was ok. I was great. 4 days later, he removed my bandages and voilá -THE HANDSOMEST EARS IN TOWN WERE REVEALED! No, seriously! my friends and family who had said before “you are just wasting your time and money” were saying now “oh wow, what a major change, you should’ve done it a long time ago” and of course my dating life increased by 100% yesss!
Dr. Pousti is an extremely skilled Plastic Surgeon. If you are thinking about getting Otoplasty, I strongly suggest that you set up an initial consultation with him. You will not be dissappointed.
If I ever need more plastic surgery, (and I will) I now exactly who I will call.

I knew from a young age that my ears stuck out more than all the other kids. I bothered me then, but once I hit my teens I felt so insecure about my ears that I wore my hair down to cover them at all costs. It could be playing sports in a million degrees wheather, but still I refused to put my hair up. I knew that I would spend the rest of my life with the burden of always trying to cover my ears up, unless I found some surgical solution. I did extensive research, and found Dr. Pousti. I came into his office for a consultation in October, and I was so struck with the friendliness of the staff, his calm and knowledgeable persona, and his willingness to help me that I scheduled my surgery for December. I was nervous before surgery, but Dr. Pousti and the staff we were so great and confident that it eased my fears. Dr. Pousti held my hand and comforted me as I went under and then a couple hours later I woke up in recovery without a hitch. Recovery time was short, and there was no pain at all, just a little discomfort. However, it was comforting to know that if anything did go wrong I had Dr. Pousti’s personal phone number to call 24 hours a day if there was any concerns or issues. Final results took about a year, and the scars healed beautifully. This surgery has really changed my life. There is not a day that I look in the mirror and don’t love what I see. I am so much more confident about myself and I know I made the right decision having the surgery with Dr. Pousti.
