4D Vaser Lipo TT, Vaser Lipo to Flanks, Back, Arms, Inner Thighs, Fat Transfer to Buttocks, Hips and Outer Thighs 12/11/13
I chose Dr Epstein for 4D Vaser Lipo-abdominoplasty, Vaser Lipo to Flanks, Back, Arms and Inner Thighs with Fat Grafting to Buttocks, Hips and Outer Thighs. From my initial consultation to post surgery care, he has provided the utmost care and attention to me. He took the time to educate me during my consultation and answered all of my questions and concerns. I did not feel rushed during the consult but rather I felt very comfortable with him. He was very thorough which was a pleasant surprise from other plastic surgeon consults I had been on. The day of surgery I was nervous and Dr Epstein and his staff made me feel very comfortable. The surgery was long, about 7 hours and went well. I had a nurse, Arlene, stay with me overnight and that was a blessing! My 4D Vaser Lipo-abdominoplasty was drainless which was a huge plus. Dr Epstein's post operative follow up is exceptional. He phoned me several times a day to check on me. The Experel used to numb the tummy seemed to not be working on day 2 post op and I was in a lot of pain. Dr Epstein and Maryann came to my house!! He gave me a local anesthetic to ease my discomfort. He really went above and beyond and that makes him exceptional. I chose Dr Epstein because time he spent with me to educate me on the procedure and because he is cutting edge when it comes to technology offering 4D Vaser. I am ecstatic about my results. Dr Epstein is an exceptional doctor. He is caring, takes great pride in his sculpting abilities and is at the top of cutting edge technology. I highly recommend him. Please read through my journey on Real Self.
Dr.E is THE go to dr. for breast augmentation. His knowledge, experience, bedside manner and staff made this experience well worth it. As a bodybuilder I knew that my situation would be slightly different than most women due to the density of my pectoral muscles. A fellow bb'er highly recommended Dr. E and he proved to be all she had promised and more. I was showering and up and about with his rapid recovery system in no time. No drains, no pain pump, no uncomfortable post surgical garments. He called me every evening for several nights to check on me. He sent flowers to congratulate me on my new additions. When I called with a question I actually spoke TO HIM not just a staff member. My breasts look beautiful and natural. I couldnt be more satisfied. Dr. E is by far the best plastic surgeon in my opionion. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Epstein is a skilled plastic surgeon who performed my abdominoplasty with absolutely stellar results. I am very happy with my flat tummy and I am only six weeks out, which is my recovery halfway point. Prior to meeting Dr. Epstein, I had a consult with another PS whom I felt was more of a sleazy salesman than a caring physician. A girlfriend who had a BA a few years back highly recommended Dr. Epstein and thank god she did! My first consult with him was thorough, informative and reassuring. A polar opposite to the PS I met before. I felt as if he really listened and cared about what I wanted and also gave his honest medical opinion and realistic expectations as well. There was no up-selling of unnecessary lipo or some pricey product pitch like I found with other surgeons. He was straightforward, knowledgeable and professional, something you really come to appreciate while standing naked on a pedestal. I left the office feeling very confident in choosing Dr. Epstein. The surgery went well, from what I remember… My stomach looks flat and amazing and the scar is super low and healing well. I love to show it off in bikinis and tight shirts. I am 6 weeks post-op and feeling better every day. I have had very little discomfort and I credit Dr. Epstein as he does not use those uncomfortable binders or steri-strips, thus making recovery much more comfortable and more tolerable especially in the beginning when relief is needed most! My biggest complaints were normal, mostly back-pain and those annoying drains staying in four weeks which felt like FOREVER! Each post-op visit went extremely well with no complications and I felt as if the staff had my best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Dr. Epstein and his staff for your next procedure.
After reading the website and my initial appointment with Dr. Epstein I knew at that he was going to do my surgery. His professionalism, knowledge, expertise and innovative methods made me feel extremely comfortable. He explained the entire procedure to me, answered all my questions, showed me before and afters and did not rush me out to get to his next appointment.
Dr. E recently performed a breast augmentation on me, and I cannot be any happier with the results. From the moment I went there for my consultation, I felt very comfortable with him and his entire staff. They make you feel so at ease, everyone that works there is very pleasant, and hospitable. Dr. E is so thorough with answering any and all questions you may have, he even gave me a incredible book to read. It tells you all you need to know about breast augmentation surgery; it was extremely informative, and interesting. All of his breast augmentations are done using his specialized rapid 24 hour recovery - LADIES THIS IS NO JOKE! Not even an hour after my surgery I was able to lift my arms up in the air!!! You do not even need any strong pain medication, the pain is really not bad at all!! All my friends and family were completely shocked on how great I was doing immediately after surgery, I was moving around and everything. You also don’t have to wear any of those uncomfortable dressing that some of the other surgeons require you to wear after surgery, you don’t have to wear anything if that’s what you’re comfortable with; I just wore a zip up sports bra. Dr. E is a great, and talented surgeon. I cannot stress enough on how much he cares about his patients; the night of my surgery he even called me himself to check up and see how things were going. I also must add that my recent follow up appointment (to have my steri-strips replaced - protective material to cover incisions) I was ecstatic when I saw how AMAZING the incision looked, they were so small.. I was barely able to see it. I beg anyone who is interested in plastic surgery to check out Dr. E; you won’t regret it! It will be one of the best decisions you make, I know it sure was for me. Thank you Dr. E for changing my life, and making me so confident in myself!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!
He and his staff are great. He was very patient, informative and professional. He knows exactly what you need.
Dr E is the most caring and attentive doctor I have ever met. He goes above and beyond for his patients and so does his staff. He listened to everything i said and did everything I asked for. I can honestly say I wish I had gone to him sooner. If I, my family or friends ever need a plastic surgery procedure done we will absolutely be going to Dr. E. He is truly an amazing and talented surgeon!!!
I am thrilled that I chose Dr. E as my surgeon because from the first office visit to the OR to postop care, everything has been phenomenal. There was even a book explaining exactly what to expect and what should be done for recovery. I am absolutely thrilled with my results and I recommend Dr. E highly without any reservations.
I am currently 3 weeks post op from Breast Augmentation. I am truly amazed by Dr. E and his staff. The office is wonderful, caring and professional. Dr. E is brilliant!! I am so happy with the results and can't believe how great I felt right after surgery. I came home from surgery and went out to dinner that same night. I was out shopping the next morning. I had nothing more then Ibuprofen. My husband couldn't believe I was up and going right away.. I have two little kids (6 and 3) and got them ready and off to school the next day. The rapid recovery was true to its words.. I highly recommend Dr. Epstein to all my family and friends and to anyone who is considering having BA surgery.. Sabrina
He is best description of a healthcare professional and a perfect example of a truly wonderful doctor serving the public.
