After several years of wearing excessively padded bras and contemplating having my breasts done, I decided that I was going to go forth with the surgery and start researching the procedure more seriously. The factor that was most important to me was ensuring that my breasts would not look too large for my body, as I am quite petite. I wanted a sexy, natural look that would keep people guessing if they were my own or if they were implants. That is exactly what I got. I opted to go with the newly approved Natrelle 410 Gummy Bear implants, and I could not be more thrilled with the results. I am a perfectionist, and extremely picky and critical of everything. There were times leading up to the surgery where I wondered if any results would live up to my high expectations, but Dr. Mark Epstein gave me a result that far exceeded any of my expectations and simply can not be beat. Prior to surgery, I met all of the staff and was made very comfortable with Dr. Epstein, the anesthesiologist, and all of the nurses who would be caring for me before and after the procedure. I was made aware of what to expect in the days following surgery. Any jitters I had prior to my procedure were quickly eliminated after consulting with Dr. Epstein and his staff. My experience with the surgery and recovery could not have gone better. Immediately after waking from surgery, I was able to lift my arms over my head with no pain. The day of surgery, the only medication I took for pain was Advil. The night of surgery, I was able to walk around and go out for dinner with no issues at all. For 4 days following surgery, I continued to take Advil, although I did not feel as though I really needed it as I was in no pain at all, however, I continued to take it to keep any inflammation down. It is pretty miraculous to go through surgery and not need any pain medication/narcotics! The day after surgery, my swelling was at its greatest point, but I still was not experiencing pain. By day 3, the swelling had subsided greatly, and I could not believe how amazing my results were by the 1st week. It has been just over 3 weeks since my surgery, and the results are far better than I could have ever imagined, and I know they will continue to get better over the next few months. When I tell people, they can not believe I had surgery 3 weeks ago and are so impressed with how amazing my breasts look. I can not stop looking in the mirror and I am so glad I decided to go forth with the surgery. I really believe I got the best surgeon in the business, as well as the best implants for my body - these results simply could not be beat! I travelled all the way from Alberta, Canada, and if I had to
Dr. Mark Epstein is an exceptional surgeon. When I decided to go forth with a breast augmentation, I began researching the procedure and surgeons very seriously. I spent hours on end trying to find a surgeon that I felt would give me the best result. I had spent hours on the phone with several surgeons, many of whom are highly respected in the breast augmentation world. After coming across Dr. Mark Epstein's website and speaking with his staff, I knew my search for a surgeon was over. As mentioned in my review about my experience, the most prominent concern of mine was to have a sexy, feminine, but natural look. Dr. Epstein clearly states on his website that he is a strong advocate for a natural look, and that implants too large for the body can be very damaging to the existing breast. His website is extremely informative, and his staff go above and beyond to answer any questions or concerns. Dr. Epstein has a "One Day Recovery" procedure, which allowed me to resume day to day activities hours after surgery. I can tell that there wasn't trauma to my tissues during surgery, because I had no pain at all during my recovery. He is extremely knowledgeable, and genuinely cares that you feel confident going into the procedure, and wants you to feel amazing about the results (which, with him as a surgeon, I can assure you that you will!). He will thoroughly assess your body type, tissue quality, current breast shape and desired outocome and assist you in deciding which type and size of implant is best for you. Dr. Epstein's Vectra 3D technology allows you to see what your results will look like after the procedure. Seeing these images made me feel even more confident going into surgery, and I could not stop looking at the print outs of the images made for me - it made me even more excited! You can feel comfortable asking literally any question you may have, and he will give you an honest answer with an explanation behind the answer as well. As mentioned earlier, I spoke with several doctors, but once discovering Dr. Epstein's website and speaking with his staff, my search was over. This is a procedure that needs to be done with care. I am extremely critical and picky and knew in going through with the surgery that I was going to have it done the right way. I am convinced that Dr. Epstein is the BEST in breast augmentation. I travelled all the way from Alberta, Canada and could not be happier with my results. If I had to do it all over again, I would not change a single thing. Dr. Epstein is truly a remarkable surgeon.
