MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I had suffered a pretty extensive injury a number of years ago. As a result, I had experienced weight gain, and I also needed regular corticosteroid injections for years to deal with pain. This interfered with my hormone levels, and I developed a minor case of gynecomastia due to low testosterone levels. I finally lost the weight, but found I couldn't lose it from my chest, which became an extreme annoyance. I decided to have it taken care of. I located Dr Epstein from local online searches and reviews. I am endlessly happy that I did. I was apprehensive about this type of surgery, but Dr. Epstein and his staff put me at complete ease, and made the whole experience completely stress free. He is very personable, and was easy to talk to about my concerns, and what I hoped to achieve. His staff are absolutely wonderful. They were all friendly, welcoming and went out of their way to assist me. The office is spotless, and has a very relaxing atmosphere. The on site surgical room is state of the art, and better than most hospital operating rooms I have been in. The day of the procedure, I arrived and the staff prepped me, both physically and mentally. I found I had no apprehension. The procedure went without a hitch, and there was minimum recovery time at the office. I walked out, feeling only a little fatigue. When I got home, I made a sandwiche LOL Dr. Epstein called me that evening, to make sure I was OK, which I was. I had some soreness for a day or two, but it was minor. I didn't even use the pain meds provided. I went back 6 days later, and all was healing well. I wore the compression garment as instructed, and it helped reduce swelling. I saw him a few weeks later, and was able to stop wearing the garment. I was very happy with the results. A few months later, I had a followup appointment. We were happy with the results, but the doctor saw that there was a slight imbalance. This was partially due to a difference in muscle size bilaterally from nerve damage due to my injury. The doctor decided to bring me in for a slight touch up. It was a quick and minor procedure, and it made everything even better than it was before. Dr. Epstein is an artist at body sculpting. I am thrilled with the results. I only wish I had done this earlier. Doctor Epstein and his entire staff have my utmost Thanks for what they have done for me. I am truly glad I met him.
