MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

After having my two kids and breastfeeding them both, my breasts became completely deflated. I tried exercising and eating healthier but nothing helped. On a whim, I decided to do a google search to see if there were any new surgical options available. As a full time doctor working in a busy practice and mommy of two young kids, one of the most important features I was looking for besides the safety of the procedure was the recovery. I do not have time to take off many days from work and there is no 'downtime' when it comes to taking care of the kids. It was by chance/luck I came across Dr. Epstein's website and I was excited to read about his ONE-day recovery from breast augmentation and immediately made an appointment for my initial consultation. That first visit was very informative and Dr. Epstein was able to answer all my questions before I could even ask them and before I knew it I booked a day for my surgery! His office staff from the front desk to his office manager and nurses to the anesthesiologist are all great. They are warm and inviting and genuinely care about your well-being. My surgery went smoothly. Dr. Epstein helped me to choose the implant that would be the most natural looking for my body- the gummy bear silicone implants and with his 3D imaging technology, I was able to visualize the ideal size implant for my body frame. After surgery I did not feel nauseous and I felt minimal pain. Following his guidelines for a 24hr recovery within 2hrs of the surgery, I was able to lift my arm above my head. I was amazed! The next day , after following up with him at the office, I was able to drive myself home and do pretty much everything I needed to do- grocery shopped, picked up the kids, cooking, etc. I could not believe that I had surgery just the day before! And at that point there was still minimal pain well controller with a few doses of motrin. Now 1 month out, I am still healing well. The scar is small and right in the crease underneath the breasts. I will follow his guidelines for scar care and hopefully that will resolve as well. All in all, I am thrilled with the implants and so thankful to have found Dr. Epstein. If you are looking for a highly skilled plastic surgeon and a true ONE-day recovery for breast augmentation then please look no further. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Epstein!
