I had been thinking about getting an augmentation after breastfeeding my first child, that was 17 years ago! My breast become so deflated even after the first kid, and it had always bothered me. I lost all the volume on top, even wearing push up bras was difficult because there wasn’t much to push up. But there were so many concerns, about the risks, the pain, cost, how fake I’ll look and if people know, how they will think I am really vain, going under general anesthesia, and no support from the significant other. Four kids later, I still found myself doing constant research online on the procedure and looking at so many before and after pictures. One day I heard about the rapid recovery breast augmentation and researched more about it, then discovered there was a 24 hr recovery procedure, which was different from rapid recovery. It was just what I needed. I couldn’t afford to have much down time with four children at home. I was so happy I came across Dr. Epstein’s website. I read all the reviews and looked at all the before and after pictures. His pictures showed the most natural results than any other doctors website I have seen. I had my consultation with him and knew he was the doctor I need. He took his time, addressed all my concerns and was very compassionate. My only worry then was transportation because he was about a four hr drive for me. I finally scheduled my surgery and had the augmentation done in July 2017. The 24 hr recovery procedure was amazing and I had wish I had this done much sooner. I drove there the morning of surgery. When I woke up from surgery, I felt tightness but no pain what so ever, and I was able to raise my hands over my head. I did not feel drowsy or nauseated at all from the general anesthesia! No surgical bra was needed. I went to the hotel and rested a little, then went to the mall, and had a nice dinner that evening. I was just a little swollen but it didn’t look that much different from now (5 months after surgery). The swelling never got worse. I had my follow up appointment the next morning, then drove 4 hrs home and picked up my kids from their after school activities, prepared a light dinner, got them ready for bed, and life went about as usual. I had chosen the round “soft-touch” gummy bear implants, I told the doctor I wanted to look natural and he ended up going with 330 CCs, which is perfect for me. The implants are soft and natural to the touch. I am just so happy with my decision to go with this doctor! I am amazed by Dr. Epstein’s experience and technique and I am so thankful!
