After breastfeeding two kids I was left with a chest not filling cup A. I was always very self conscious of how I looked in bathing suits or any other type of clothes that didn't allow me to wear padded bras. I wanted full B, small C. I ended up getting Gummy 270cc for a full B, maybe a small C. The thing that swayed me to go with Dr. Epstein was 24 hour recovery. And that is exactly what I got. There was actually absolutely no down time at all. I left the office after surgery, got home, took a nap, woke up and went on about my business without skipping a bit. I did laundry, participated in all my usual activities with kids. I did take extra strength Tylenol the following morning but just as a precaution. It was Thanksgiving Day and we were going to my parents’ house. I was nervous I would start feeling something, but I never did feel any pain. I even held my 15 lbs baby nephew, no pain! Day after Thanksgiving I had a dinner party at my house. Again, felt absolutely fine. I did feel tightness for about a month, and it did get annoying at times. My nipples were sore as well. Now it is 4 months later, my breasts are soft and look very natural. I nipples are still sensitive to the touch. And I am just now regaining sensation in the bottom of my breast. None of that bothers me. In retrospect, I should have gone a little bigger, but Dr. said my muscle was very tight and that would be difficult for a natural look using Gummies… Overall I am happy with the outcome.

Dr. Epstein described in detail the procedure and what to expect. His staff is very friends and professional. Everything was described in detail, all questions answered over the phone or via email.
