Perspectives from an International Patient (Amazing!!!!!!)
I began seriously considering breast augmentation surgery a year after finishing nursing my third child. I was really nervous as I had never had surgery before and the decision was even more complicated for me as I do not live in the U.S. so travel would be involved.
I found Dr. Epstein using this site - the common threads of compassion, confidence, attention and skill in the reviews really stood out. Dr. Epstein’s website was more informative and personal than all of his peers and I appreciated his transparency in having so many before & after photos, showing the high quality of his work. His 3-day “travel package” also made me feel confident in his ability to meet my specific needs. I literally was only away from my family for 3 nights to have the surgery!
In every interaction, Dr Epstein was calm and thoroughly answered all my questions, really putting me at ease regarding the procedure and talking through my concerns regarding size. He has even contacted me a couple of times in the last 4 weeks to check in on my recovery and to see if I had any questions. His staff is incredible – personable, caring and knowledgeable.
My recovery has been exactly as he predicted. Despite reading all I could on the “24 hour recovery” I still was shocked that within an hour of waking up I could raise my hands over my head, and that afternoon I was in the shower washing my own hair and walking in the mall, opening doors and even out to dinner with my husband at a restaurant that night!
Because of his specific methods and proprietary tools, recovery had no impact on regular day to day activities – I was lifting my son, driving my car and back to work without missing a beat! For about 2 weeks following the surgery, the muscle from arm pit to breast was tender - it just felt like a sore muscle following a big workout. And even though the settling in process has only just begun, the size is perfect for my frame and they are already fabulous! The transformation from saggy with shriveled, melting nipples to full and pert is incredible!!! They just got perfectly filled up and restored to something I am confident and proud of! I recently wore a tight top with a strapless bandeau bra (haven’t done that in years as it would have just slipped down my ribs….) and truly felt like a million bucks!!!!
I have never written a review for anything before but, given how important the comments of others were to me in this process, I wanted to echo their experiences and words on behalf of Dr Epstein and his team. Overall, I cannot recommend Dr Epstein highly enough.
