48 years old and looking fabulous, March 13, 2018, 7:19 pm
Reviewer: Debmars

I have wanted breast augmentation since I was in my 20’s, but was so afraid of the pain and recovery. I had the 24 hour recovery surgery by Dr.Epstein and was amazed that I was able to lift my arms above my head in the recovery room. I am a hairstylist , had surgery Wednesday and was at back to work on Friday. No pain killers just some Ibuprofen. My breasts were asymmetrical and Dr. Epstein meticulously corrected it by using two different size implants. They are beautifully even now! The recovery recipe that was given to me was easy and worked perfectly. I went back to boxing 4 weeks after my surgery and I feel great. I wish I would have done it sooner. I highly recommend Dr. Epstein. I did a lot of research and he is truly the only doctor out there that does this 24 hour recovery surgery. His staff is wonderful and very helpful.

I lived with extreme asymmetrical breasts for 47 years. After consults with a few Plastic Surgeons in my area - I chose Dr Epstein and his One Day Recovery. To bring me to asymmetry we went with round gummies in two diff sizes and a lolypop lift on one side. I was very surprised right after waking up from the anesthesia, I was able to lift both arms above my head. I had NO pain - NONE EVER! Of course I was sore but I was able to get dressed and do some things around the house. I chose to take a week off from work to rest. Dr Epstein is very professional - he does not make you feel rushed - he will give you all the time you need to review your options and answer your questions. He gives his patients his personal cell phone number and he promptly returns texts! So if you are considering having a procedure done - I totally recommend Dr Epstein and his friendly staff!

So Happy with 24 hr Recovery Breast Augmentation!!, December 11, 2017, 12:36 am
Reviewer: Vibrant

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!

Vaser lipo of the abs, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and BBL, July 12, 2017, 11:29 am
Reviewer: MLKorn86

I had VASER lipo done by Dr. Epstein in March of 2017. I could not be happier with Dr. Epstein and the results from my surgery. Not only is he incredible at what he does, but he is very kind and caring. He was the first person I heard from right after my surgery in addition to phone calls from various nurses in his practice, who are equally as wonderful as he is. They were always available to answer any question I had throughout the whole process. His entire staff is very warm and caring. The surgery and recovery itself was a bit more than I had prepared myself for. I was very sore for the first couple of weeks, but nothing that ibuprofen couldn't handle. While I was sore and slow to move, I was able to take care of myself and my 2 and 5 year old just a few short days after surgery. I can honestly say that Dr. Epstein has pretty much changed my life. I was very self conscious and generally unhappy with the appearance of the lower half of my body, but 4 months post surgery, and my confidence is sky high and I feel amazing. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Breast removal and lift , April 15, 2017, 1:23 pm
Reviewer: Chloe_pankow@yahoo.com

When I was 20 years old I decided to have HUGE breast implants! I'm talking 650 ccs! I don't know what I was thinking but I did it. 5 years later I finally decided to get rid of them. They were ruining my life. I couldn't exercise, couldn't find anything to wear, couldn't wear any bras and everyone would stare at me no matter where I went! I just wanted to be normal. So I knew my case was going to be extremely difficult being that I am tiny ( 5"3 115 pounds) I didn't want my boobs looking all saggy being they were so stretched out! Well thank god I chose the right doctor Mark Epstein! He was the only one I trusted and who I knew that could get the job done. Not only were my boobs huge by my nipples were super uneven. My left nipple was high and my right nipple was extremely low. Needless to say he did an absolutely stunning job. My boobs are nice and small and lifted and my nipples are perfectly even! So glad I chose him!

Breast augmentation., January 15, 2017, 9:11 am
Reviewer: blankakrejci

The result of the breast augmentation is above my expectation. I am highly satisfied with over all experience. All my concerns and fears from the surgery, or of the recovery or how I would feel with new breast … Dr. Epstein listened and addressed with professional and honest approach. I was confident that my choice of Dr. Epstein and his office was the “one” right from the beginning. The 24 hour recovery was completely true. I was able to get back to my normal day activities the following morning. It was little bit more expensive than I thought It would be; but as we say “you get what you pay for” and I paid for the best. I would and do highly recommend Dr. Epstein and his staff for breast augmentation.

Reviewer: Satisfied1

I am very happy with my procedure. I have a new found confidence in my appearance. Dr. Epstein was caring and most of all he listened to all my concerns and apprehensions. I was confident when I went into the procedure that I was in good hands. The staff at Dr. Epstein's office is always available to answer your questions, even giving you their cell phone numbers. I would highly recommend Dr. Epstein.

Incredible Experience, May 12, 2016, 7:47 am
Reviewer: terridavis10

Having my procedure March 2016, I am so happy, I have now words to describe it. I am not sure why I waited so long to have my breast augmentation done, I suppose I had a fear of the unknown. To my surprise, this procedure was everything Dr. Epstein claimed it to be. I experienced minimal pain (if any), an incredible fast recovery - One Day Recovery, which I followed the plan exactly as subscribed and I feel and look like I always imagined. My surgery was at 11 am, I was home by 2:30 pm that afternoon and laying face down with my hands over head by 8 pm. I honestly thought it was a "trick" of sorts, but by sticking to the plan, I was amazed at my movements and absence of pain. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Epstein or his staff for their "bed side" manor and professionalism in the office staff. I made several calls the office after, very similar to first time mother call, and was put at ease with every question and concern immediately. If you are on the fence from fear or any other reason to commit to the augmentation, I highly recommend Dr. Epstein with every certainly I have.

30 year old mother of 2 AA to a C, March 24, 2016, 5:18 pm
Reviewer: CEW529

After researching for years I decided to go with Dr. Epstein due in large to the 24 hour recovery. We had a consult with a 3D rendering of what the breast would look like after. I love this because you can make a confident decision. I work full time and have two toddlers and don't have time to be out of commission. I figured 24 hours was not accurate but I was hoping it wasn't much more than 24 hours. Honestly it was 24 hours. Recovery in 24 hours. I was back to work in 48 hours. I took no time off for work had the surgery on my first pas day and recovered more on my second, back to work in day 3. I also couldn't believe they were only giving me ibuprofen. No way you can have surgery and not get anything stronger. Well ibuprofen dos the job! Which is wonderful since I don't actually like taking anything stronger. As for my results I am more than pleased. After some swelling went down I couldn't believe how amazing the implants look. The round silicon implants look natural and fit my body while improving my overall confidence and making me feel like an attractive woman. I really have no complaints. I would recommend Dr. Epstein to anyone.

So happy at 45 - VASER 4D lipo, March 11, 2016, 3:04 pm
Reviewer: mrsdezzy

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!
