Don’t just think about it – do it! If you have any doubts go see Dr. Epstein. I’m from Massachusetts and travelled to consult with a few doctors in other states since Massachusetts does not have any doctors who do VASER 4D lipo. As soon as I met him, I knew that Dr. Epstein was the doctor for me. He is so patient and is genuinely excited about his work. He doesn’t just remove fat; he contours your body like a piece of art! I can’t say I’ve ever had a doctor call me after a consultation and even give me his e-mail address (which he replied to each one personally) and cell phone number to contact him with any questions or concerns. Even more importantly, he is honest and explained my options and what he realistically could do for me. His staff is so helpful and friendly reflecting Dr. Epstein’s spirit. The actual procedures were done under general anesthesia since I had so much done at one time. I woke up with a room full of people making sure I was comfortable and was not rushed even though I was the last patient of the day. Even some of the office staff stayed until I was ready to go home after surgery! Recovery was not fun but with the help of my husband the discomfort was manageable. Follow all of the pre and post-surgery instructions. The package you are given really prepares you for what to expect including your very first phone call from Dr. Epstein himself the day after surgery. Believe me any discomfort is a distant memory and so worth the results. I had my surgery (VASER 4D lipo of the abdomen, flanks, inner thighs and back/bra roll, and fat transfer to the buttocks and hips) in August 2015 and was back to work in 2 weeks – I was even able to take public transportation without any problems. At 45 years old I never would have imagined I would have a defined abdomen or such smooth curves!
