So Glad I Found Dr Epstein! -Stony Brook, NY

After wanting this for 20 years I finally decided that at almost 40 it was time to give this gift to myself. I spent the last year thoroughly researching this choice and then, once I made the decision to go forward, took my time researching my Dr.
I chose Dr Epstein for my breast augmentation in February. I went on 5 consultations before finding Dr Epstein. And I'm so glad I did!
My experience post operatively has been great. Again, I never imagined it would be so easy. I took 800 mg Advil for the fist few days and some Extra Strength Tylenol 2 times during those first 48 hours, after that I needed nothing. I was able to raise my hands above my head in the recovery room, went out to dinner that night. I was groggy and knew I had had surgery but was able to do basically everything for myself - shower, wash my hair, dress with shirts going over my head all the same day. Compared to what so many go through after their surgeries having these freedoms was wonderful! I really couldn't have asked for a better experience!
My only con is that I have to travel 2 hours to get to Dr Epstein's office, but it's worth it.
His philosophy is wonderful. His website alone gives so much information and then he and his staff were wonderful answering my many questions. In the end I was able to go into surgery without any worries, something I had never thought I would be able to do. Dr Epstein's philosophy about deciding ahead of time the right size for your body and then performing the surgery in as gentle a manner as possible so that the healing for the patient will be as easy as possible is wonderful. I really wonder why more Drs don't make that their focus. I also appreciated the before and after photos from his 3D machine. It was so hard to imagine size and that was very helpful.
