He is a Master of his profession! , April 19, 2021, 6:48 pm
Reviewer: apl3245@aol.com

If you are looking for a surgeon who is professional, honest, caring for patient well-being, respectful and talented, Dr. Epstein is your men! During my first visit there was no pressure for any procedure, just simple ask and answer. There were no empty promises or misleading expectations. Preparation for the surgery was more professional then at the hospital for a surgery. Aftercare was amazing as well. Dr. Epstein called himself to check on me and then everyday for a week his nurses were calling checking on my recovery. I even received flowers from Dr. Epstein office with a beautiful card wishing me well. The most amazing thing was my recovery. If anyone would tell me that I will have 24 hr recovery after having multiple body parts done i would not believe it! I had FaceTite/MyEllevate and Liposuctin/BodyTite done. The procedure was outpatient so I was home same day and of course I took easy and took pain killers. Following day I wake up feeling refreshed and well. Did not require strong pain killers, Tylenol (which I was taking for 3 days before going to sleep to assure comfortable sleep due to wearing special garments after the surgery) was sufficient and I was able to return to regular routine around the house, cooking, cleaning, driving my car. 4 days later I was back at work, working full time and spending almost 3 hours on the train commute and 5 days later I was hosting family dinner! My husband and I were so pleased with my recovery. Another unexpected surprise were visible results. In the past I had liposuction performed by another surgeon. I was prepared for excessive swelling, bruising, pain, etc. but not this time. Dr. Epstein methods minimized all of those unpleasant experiences. Thanks to him my recovery was amazing and saw results right away. Although I feel very comfortable being 52, who doesn't enjoy being told they look much younger then they are or being told that people can't believe that I am a grandmother. And if I am really honest, I must say that after this surgery, the sparkle in my eyes is back and I feel amazing about myself.

Awesome Experience., March 23, 2021, 9:31 am
Reviewer: Anonymous2021

To begin, Dr Epstein and his staff are extremely welcoming, friendly, attentive, and very professional. Any nerves as a first-time patient, quickly disappear. Dr Epstein was very thorough and clear in explaining how the procedure is performed, what to expect during recovery period, and the expected results when finished. He is very knowledgeable, patient, explains possible options and is honest about all aspects of the process from surgery top recovery. It has only been a couple of months and scarring is just about nonexistent. He deservingly has earned multiple Top Doctor awards from his peers. A HUGE Thank You to Dr. Epstein. 😉

Best Experience wit Breast Augmentation, March 15, 2021, 6:55 am
Reviewer: mp1112

I cannot say enough about my amazing experience with breast augmentation with Dr. Mark Epstein! The entire staff could not be kinder, more considerate, or helpful throughout my whole process. Starting with my consult, Dr. Epstein listened to my concerns with my current textured implants which I had from 5 years prior. I felt it was in my best interest to switch them to smooth texture. Dr. Epstein was extremely supportive throughout this entire process. My procedure was very much a “non-event.” The 24 hour recovery time was exactly what was promised and then some. I barely needed the ibuprofen that I had handy. I was able to go for a long walk that very same afternoon and went out to dinner with my husband. I returned to work the next day wearing a sports bra and carried on with daily activities. I went back to the gym a week later and was able to lift weights again about 3 weeks later. The anesthesiologist was one of the kindest and calming individuals that I have ever met. She took the time to talk to me prior to the surgery and was soothing and spoke to me the entire time as I was falling asleep. This helped alleviate a lot of the anxiety I had about going under. The nurse that attended to me in recovery was wonderful and knowledgeable. It was nice waking up to such a kind person taking care of you. Since my surgery, my confidence and self-esteem has increased drastically. I cannot wait for the warm weather and for bathing suit season. Just the way I walk around from day to day feeling positive, especially during this crazy time with the pandemic, is worth every penny of my procedure. I am extremely fortunate and grateful to have found this amazing surgeon. He literally has changed my life in the most positive way! I wanted to share this experience to those that may be apprehensive or nervous. For me this was the best decision I’ve ever made!

5 STARS! , August 25, 2020, 7:44 pm
Reviewer: Baskin888

I have nothing but spectacular things to say about Dr. Epstein and his staff. From the first time I walked into the office all the way through my post-op appointments, I’ve been treated like I’d imagine a celebrity would. I’m always greeted with a smile, everything is so thoroughly explained and, for someone who’s been apprehensive through this whole process, they’ve set my mind at ease through every step of this journey. Furthermore, I couldn’t have imagined a better result from my procedure. Even in my wildest daydreams about how things might turn out, I never expected things to look THIS good. The impact that this procedure and results have had on my life and self-esteem are priceless. I am beyond thrilled and I feel like I got a bargain given the results in addition to the benefit of a one-day recovery. I would recommend this practice to anyone. They are true professionals with an extremely personal touch. They care about their patients and they take great pride in their work. First class all the way! Thank you Dr. Epstein!

BodyTite and PAL Liposuction, April 17, 2019, 8:17 am
Reviewer: jensully28

First and foremost, I hope you find this review helpful, informative, and worth the read!! I know how important it is for me to research doctors and procedures and to hear of others’ experiences, both the good and the bad, and if you’re here reading, you feel the same way! In August of 2018 I had Body-Tite on my inner thighs, outer thighs, back of legs, and buttocks, coupled with PAL Liposuction (which was on my outer thighs only) performed by Dr. Epstein. Dr. Epstein: I honestly cannot say enough nice things about Dr. Epstein. He is kind, empathetic, incredibly smart, patient, listens, and has the best bedside manner of any physician I have ever been to. When I met him at the consultation, he was very open and candid about the procedure, took the time to listen to all of my questions and my concerns, and we chatted on a personal level as well, which helped my comfort level. He explained thoroughly what the procedure would entail, what the recovery would look like, how long the healing process would take, and when I would notice results (no, results aren’t immediate, just be a little patient!) After meeting Dr. Epstein in person I knew this was going to be my surgeon, it was a feeling of comfort and I trusted his work (of course, looked at as many before and afters as I could and read countless reviews!!). Dr. Epstein does not leave out any detail – after surgery, he called me personally to make sure I was okay and assured me he is always a text or phone call away! Office Staff: aside from Dr. Epstein, his entire office staff is professional, pleasant, friendly, accommodating, and they really seem to love working there! His nurses were so great in the OR when prepping me for surgery, making me laugh, and taking my mind off the nerves. There was a nurse right by me when I woke up from anesthesia making sure I was okay as well. The office even sent a bouquet of gorgeous flowers to my home when I was recovering! What a nice touch!! The Procedure and recovery: so Dr Epstein had decided it was best for me to go under general anesthesia, as opposed to local, which he does on some body-tite cases. I dislike the effects of anesthesia after surgery (groggy feeling, ‘digesting’ the chemicals, all of that), but for me it was worth it. When I woke up after surgery, I was sore and I felt tender on my legs and buttocks, but still had pain meds running in me so it wasn’t bad. The first night was a little rough – I was oozing everywhere!!! Fluids and some blood oozed out of a few incisions, which I was warned about. Night 1 sleeping was rough – I opted to sleep on the couch to contain my movements. Day 2 some more oozing, not awful and just laid around, still taking pain meds. The pain wasn’t so terrible, but it felt like cramping and tender to the touch. I felt better and better with each day that passed and by day 5 – 6 i was doing great, went shopping, felt fine.. I was swollen still and there was no result so early in recovery, but I felt good. I bought these very tight spanx – 2 kinds, one kind that went down the whole leg and those felt really great to wear. I also had a couple of lymphatic massages, highly recommend!!!!!! They move the lymph and speed up healing. From there, it only got better and better! The Results: I started off with saddlebags on my thighs and looser skin on my inner and outer thighs and no matter how diligent I was at the gym, wouldn’t go away … And I was a diligent gym goer!! The areas just were resistant to exercise and diet I suppose. My thighs just to me, did not match the rest of me! And I was always very self-conscious to wear things that were too tight on the hips and thighs, like dresses, cuz it just looked a bit lumpy. I started to see small results probably in October. The saddlebags were clearly gone, but the skin was not experiencing the shrink-wrapped look yet. Dr Epstein told me it would take 9 months to a year before the results show, so I was happy with any result 2 months post-op. Now fast forward 8 months post-op and I cannot even imagine the result getting better (but it will). My thighs are SMOOTH on the outside and the inside – I put a bikini on with more confidence and wear pants and dresses now that I used to never feel right in. I love how my legs look and the procedure was one thousand percent worth it. WORD OF ADVICE: before coolsculpting or spending money on any other non-invasive procedure, look into Body-Tite and look into Dr. Epstein if you aren’t sure if you need lipo, or coolsculpt, or a combination of lipo with body-tite! He will guide you and steer you in the right direction and he will be open and honest about what he anticipates for results and how he anticipates you will heal. Did you make it this far?! Apologies for the long-winded review, but experiences need to be put out there so that we can all make educated decisions when choosing a surgeon or a particular procedure. As I mentioned, I do not have one bad thing to say about Dr. Epstein or his staff. From the initial phone call, to the follow up appointments, they have been absolutely lovely. I am still in shock when I continue to see my skin shrink and my legs tighten, it took some time, but the wait was worth it! I have had no residual pain and my skin isn’t tender anymore either (it was for a few months)!! There are a lot of little incision holes and they healed up nicely as well. I hope this helps you in your journ

Amazing Doctor !!! Best Doctor EVER !!!, October 18, 2018, 10:07 am
Reviewer: joanne123456

I have done a lots of research for plastic surgeons before having my breast augmentation done. I am so glad I found Epstein. He and his staffs are so nice and friendly, they make me feel so comfortable when I am at his office. I had chose round gummy implant for my breast augmentation. My surgery date was on 9/18/18. During the procedure, I had an episode of high blood pressure. After the surgery, Dr.Epstein had acknowledged me to follow up with my own primary doctor regarding blood pressure. Dr.Epstein is so caring and detailed toward my health. He even took time out of his day to call me at home ask me how I was feeling. I loved Dr.Epstein's "One Day Recovery". I did not need to take Ibuprofen after the first day of surgery. It is truly amazing!!! I was able to lift my arms up above my head, doing the arm exercise on the first day. My breasts was feeling pressured and numb. Other then that I was feeling fine. I was running house errands on the next day. It is truly amazing, I am amazed with Dr.Epstein's "One Day Recovery". I am now 5 weeks post op and I am very impressed with the healing of breast incision site. The incision site heals beautifully. I also received flowers the day after surgery from Dr.Epstein & his staff, what a nice gesture. I can't thank Dr.Epstein and his staff enough for their caring and professionalism. Dr.Epstein is an amazing, exceptional, caring doctor. He takes prides of his work. I highly recommend Dr.Epstein.

Amazing Experience I Highly Recommend Dr. Epstein , September 28, 2018, 12:04 pm
Reviewer: DMJ28

I can’t say enough about the amazing experience I had with Dr. Epstein and everyone in his office. This was my first experience with any cosmetic surgery; I was both excited and nervous getting my procedures (4D VASER Lipo of abdomen, flanks, mons area with BodyTite of abdomen). From the first time I walked in to the office Dr. Epstein listened to my concerns and took the time to explain the procedures and put me at ease. I am an active working woman and could not afford much down time. Within 2 weeks of making the decision I was on his schedule. The day of surgery Dr. Epstein and his staff were informative, accommodating, and made me feel comfortable as soon as I arrived. He reviewed everything with me and introduced me to all of his surgery staff. Dr. Epstein even took the time out of his day to call me at home to ask me how I was feeling the night of surgery. Within 3 days I was back at work with little discomfort, and within 3 weeks I was back to working out and running. Each day I could see more and more results. I am now 5 months post op and my adnominal looks and feels amazing. I could not be happier with my results. I can’t thank Dr. Epstein and his staff enough there caring and great bed side manner made my first cosmetic experience exceptional.

Outstanding Results- Breast Revision, August 16, 2018, 9:50 am
Reviewer: dayanaraperez

I had such an amazing experience with Dr. Epstein and everyone in his office. Let me begin by saying this was my second augmentation. I had my first procedure done by another surgeon- June 2015. July 2018 my right implant ruptured. I went back to my original surgeon and had scheduled the surgery date to have the implant replaced. I cancelled my appointment after having a horrible experience with someone in his office and I was then recommended to see Dr. Epstein by my sister-in-law. After the first conversation I had with Dr. Epstein’s staff, I knew they truly cared for their patients. I had the consult and surgery date both scheduled within a week and a half of that first phone call. I wish I had found Dr. Epstein prior to my first surgery. Dr. Epstein has amazing bedside manner and is very personable. He spent his time answering all of my questions and made me feel comfortable. The day of surgery: Because of Dr. Epstein’s calm demeanor and warming personality, I wasn’t nervous at all! He reviewed everything with me and introduced me to all of his surgery staff. Dr. Epstein even took the time out of his day to call me and ask how I was feeling the night of surgery. The office even sent flowers!!! His 24-hour recovery was almost unbelievable to me because of my experience after the first augmentation. IT’S A REAL THING! I was able to put my arms above my head, shower myself and go out to dinner the day of surgery! We were amazed at how much I could do alone. I probably could have went into work the following day too. I am now three weeks post op and my breast feel AMAZING. I had my saline implants removed and replaced with Motiva Ergonomix. I do NOT recommend saline implants due to how unnatural they feel. I could feel/ see the rippling on the side and underneath of my breasts, which made me feel very self-conscious. I even began to regret my augmentation because of this. Now, no rippling WHAT-SO-EVER. I love my results and can’t thank Dr. Epstein enough. I couldn’t imagine a better experience and am so grateful!

Brilliant Doctor & Surgeon of Precision!, August 7, 2018, 5:49 pm
Reviewer: kerimotl

“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” (Jim Rohn) And, thanks to Dr. Mark Epstein & his Staff this has been my experience. I’ve undergone two surgical procedures with Dr. Epstein; a Belf- lipectomy and Mastopexy with Galaflex mesh internal bra. The belf lipectomy was in mid-June and the second procedure (Mastopexy) was a month later in July. My recovery was evident by how quickly I recuperated from the first procedure because I was able to have the second procedure as scheduled with no issues and 24 hour breast recovery, incredible! From start to finish, Dr. Epstein has been highly attentive, skilled, and empathetic to the process of my breast and body contouring procedures. Including right down to the details in my surgical packet which guided my preparations before and after surgery. Naturally, planning ones “physical” happiness carries an emotional charge, and requires realistic psychological expectations. Dr. Epstein and his entire staff understand this and have been wholeheartedly dedicated to gently guiding my recovery process., mind, body & spirit! ♡ I am thrilled with my decision to have Dr. Mark Epstein as my medical Doctor, and with my decision to have cosmetic surgery to improve my health and wellbeing! It has taken me five years to lose 100 lbs., and my decision to have these procedures has been part of designing my long term happiness. As a result of Dr. Epstein’s EXTRAORDINARY expertise, I had a speedy surgical recovery! Including, returning to my work and school responsibilities within the week. Plus, resuming my pilates and swim training routines within a few weeks after my second procedure. The positive effects have aligned me with finally feeling as if my “insides match my outsides.”..happy, beautiful & whole! Honestly, the joy is vibrant and luminous! Similarily, I feel an encouraged desire to continue my healthy lifestyle! Coupled with, pretty much being able to wear anything I want! Which is a big deal for this gal, who went from being a size 20 to a size 2!!! Dr. Epstein helped me complete my dream around my physical appearance and delivered incredible results, increased self-esteem and an energized sense of body well- being! Therefore, giving me the motivation for continued plans towards happiness! His understanding of my vision for myself, his exceptional experience and his perfected abilities as a surgeon, along with his kind heart are EVERYTHING I needed and could ever have wanted as a patient! Thank you, Dr. Epstein and magnificent Staff for giving me my desired happiness and ME BACK, and may God Bless you all! ♡ Folks, I highly recommend no longer postponing your happiness for the future; but rather designing your happiness with Dr. Epstein for the present!!!
