I had my consult with Dr. Epstein 10/8/15 and was so comfortable and confident with him that I booked and paid for surgery the following day for a month out. I am 2.5 hrs away and Dr. Epstein paid for 3 nights at a hotel down the road for me to stay after surgery. The procedures I had were: VASER liposuction of flanks, back, inner thighs, mons, and stomach, tummy tuck, and fat transfer to hips and buttocks.

I woke up from surgery very scared but was comforted by the nurses. I can't say enough about Dr. Epstein's nurse Sam and the nurse who stayed overnight with me at the hotel, Kristy. Arlene was also an amazing nurse. They are compassionate, knowledgable, and sweet. I never once doubted my care or my decision to have these procedures. After surgery I was very swollen and had 3 drains which came out after about 1 week (I took them out at home). The first time I saw myself in the mirror I cried, I was so overwhelmed and happy with the results. On the day I was scheduled to go home, my dog sitter notified me that Dr. Epstein and staff had sent me an arrangement of roses to my home!

I was up walking around the following day at the hotel. After the first week I noted a considerable improvement in my mobility. By week 2 after surgery I was comfortable driving myself and going into stores at the mall for short periods of time. Still sore, but I noticed an improvement daily. I am currently 1 month out. I have been wearing compression garments and ordering new ones (I have gone down 3 sizes since day after surgery). I have no pain, the feeling of my nerves is returning, and I'm going on with life as before and loving my flat stomach. I feel great. My scar looks absolutely amazing. It is flat, neat, and well executed. I was slightly disappointed that the liposuction takes 4 months to see true results but I acknowledge being slightly impatient by nature.

I couldn't be happier with my choice. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. I feel amazing and I am looking forward to the future and what I will look like when my final results are even more visible after 4-6 months. I am proud to say I would recommend Dr. Epstein to anyone considering plastic surgery. He is thorough, intelligent, patient, passionate about his work, cautious, and very skilled in his craft.
