I had a hernia which protruded and destroyed my belly button area. I needed an exper plastic surgeon to repair this area.
He explained to me that I will not be wrapped like a mummy, there will be not be any drains, my incision will be glued and covered by special ½” tape and I will not have to wear compression garments afterward. Dr. Epstein also attaches a pain pump to administer medication from a fanny pack to numb your entire belly area for the first 3 days. He explained that pain pills constipate you and the less you take the better. After my surgery, I took nothing stronger than Extra Strength Tylenol.
My Doctor: Mark D. Epstein, MD
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.
