I did it for myself.

The day of surgery was a breeze. Everyone was so calm and made me feel really relaxed. Dr. Brian Slepian the anesthesiologist started my IV in the pre op room because I was so afraid of walking into the operating room. I remember getting the IV and then waking up in recovery. I did not wake up nauseous or groggy. I never had the “elephant on my chest” sensation because Dr. Epstein doesn’t use surgical bras or tight bandages. I followed the “Recipe for Recovery” when I got home, I ate and took a two hour nap. When I woke up I could not believe how great I felt!  I don’t want to use the word pain because it was never painful, just uncomfortable. On a scale of 1-10 my “pain” was a 2, and I was walking around the house, eating meals (not crackers), and I was able to raise my arms up all the way above my head. My “pain” level was never above a 5 and I was only on 800mg of Ibuprofen which took the “pain” down to a 2. Dr. Epstein’s rapid recovery is exactly as promised.  Three days after my surgery I was out shopping and went out to dinner, day four I was completely off the Ibuprofen and 100% back to normal, and on day five I was back to work. I was driving, opening my own pill bottles, showering, dressing myself, blow drying my hair, cooking my own meals…everything that people told me I wouldn’t be able to do after surgery, I was doing it. I had no bruising throughout my entire recovery period and I am only 3 weeks post op and my incisions look so clean, I can barely see them. My family and friends were amazed at how fast I was recovering

I'm glad this went so well! Thanks for sharing on RealSelf.

I have severe anxiety and have wanted to get a breast augmentation for four years. I finally worked up the courage to do it and I am so happy I chose Dr. Epstein as my surgeon. His staff is amazing and always welcomed me with a smile. It has been an amazing and EASY recovery because of Dr. Epstein’s rapid recovery technique and I would do it all over again. I still can’t believe I did it!!! I highly recommend Dr. Epstein to all of my family, friends, and anyone thinking of getting a surgical procedure done. Thank you to Dr. Epstein and his staff for being true to your word. The rapid recovery is real, and Dr. Epstein is the only surgeon I trust to deliver those results.
