MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I was referred to Dr. Epstein by a friend. I was looking for a plastic surgeon for my breast augmentation and was impressed by the fact that my friend needed no narcotics post-surgery. Dr. Epstein did not rush through my consultation appointment. He took his time coming up with the best plan. After having breast-fed 2 of my children, Dr. Epstein felt strongly that I would get the best result with a breast lift, as well as an augmentation. He used computer simulated images to show the look I would receive with and without the lift. It was clear to me that a lift would be my best option to achieve optimal results.
His staff were all extremely warm and knowledgeable. The day of my surgery I was immediately put at ease by the nurses, anesthesiologist, and support staff in the office. My lift and augmentation took about 2 1/2 hours and I recovered in the recovery room for another 2 hours. The recovery nurse was also extremely kind. I had a little bit of post-surgery nausea and I was immediately given something to make me feel better. Dr. Epstein called me the evening of my surgery to see how I was feeling. I felt well enough to go out to a meeting the same day as the surgery! I was able to lift my hands above my head the next morning and I never needed anything stronger then 800mg of Ibuprofen at any point after the surgery. I felt comfortable driving 4 days after my surgery, but I think I would have been driving sooner if I just had an augmentation and not a lift as well. I am currently 3 weeks post surgery. I still have some tenderness in my breasts, but I am able to do everything I was before my surgery. I am extremely happy with my results and would highly recommend Dr. Epstein.
