Amazing Results - Stony Brook, NY

I had my breast augmentation done in November 2011...

I had my breast augmentation done in November 2011.  At the time, I was a 30 year old mom of a 17 month old son.  I was considering a breast augmentation since I gave birth to my son.  I always had perfect round 34b breasts and after having my child, I hated the way my body looked.  I felt that at 30 years old I had the breasts of a 60 year old woman (very deflated and droopy).  I felt I needed to get my body back.  After visiting a few plastic surgeons, I was very worried about the recovery period.  As a stay-at-home mom, I could not afford to be out-of-commission for a week or so. 

After searching online for Rapid Recovery surgeons in the area, I came across Dr. Epstein and made my appointment immediately.  During my consultation, I was very pleased that he was the only surgeon who took precise measurements of my breasts to determine the best size implant for me.  Other surgeons just allow a person to try on sizers and that's it. 

I was always confused and scared about that.  Dr. Epstein advised me of the perfect size for my body that would give me a natural look and one that was also the healthiest.  I was very afraid of potential complications, but Dr. Epstein assured me that his technique is very different that other surgeons therefore the risk of complications is much lower. 

I am currently 5 months post-op and extremely pleased with my results.  I am now a full 34d with soft natural results.  I had a wonderful speedy recovery.  The pain was very similar to when a woman's milk comes in after delivery and swelling only lasted a few days.  I didn't even need to take any Advil, just some ice here and there for first day or so.   I am so happy with my results and so glad that I did not let my fears overcome me. No Cons at all.
