When I was 17 I was diagnosed with a breast deformity known as Tubular Breast Deformity. My reconstructive surgery required me to have a saline implant placed in my right breast. About four years ago I had an accident and since have had pain in the implant. I finally could take it no longer, but did not wish to go back to my original surgeon as I did not like his bedside manor, which had left a bad taste in my mouth toward plastic surgeons in general. A nurse from my moms cardiologist suggested I see Dr. Epstein as he was great with his patients. Wearily I went.
I had the surgery two weeks later (the day before Thanksgiving) and was amazed at how well I felt afterward. On Thanksgiving day I was up cooking, the next day I was driving. I'm about two months out now and I am so happy, I can barely feel a difference between my breasts and I can lay on my stomach for the first time in four years.
