24 Years Old- Gummy Bear Breast Augmentation with Inverted Nipple Correction - Stony Brook, NY

I'm a 5'7, 135 pound active girl who always had small breasts and inverted nipples. After I started working out and lifting heavy my somewhat A-boobs shrank to almost nothing and I even hated it more despite the fact that I was getting stronger and the rest of my body looked great. I had a lot of insecurity issues when it came to my breasts/nipples and always dreaded going to any pool parties during the summer seasons. Just stepping out of the shower and grabbing a robe I would avoid looking at my breasts, they were my least favorite part of my body.

After about four years of constant back-and-forth debating about getting a breast augmentation I took the plunge and scheduled a consultation and then booked the surgery immediately after speaking to Dr. Epstein! I had the surgery on June 7,2016 and I am a little over one month post op as of right now. Dr. Epstein was so so worth it. I am IN LOVE with my results, they are the perfect fit for my body and don't look overwhelming at all; unlike before surgery now I can't STOP looking at them in the mirror after I get out of the shower. I received gummy bears 270cc in my left breast and 205cc in my right, which now makes me about a large B/small C. His 24 hour recovery is amazing and I was able to return to work after about a week (my job can be physically demanding at times so I took some extra time off). There were no complications during any of the process besides 3 weeks post-op, a small rash around both incisions which was discussed in the surgery booklet as a possibility; Dr. Epstein prescribed an steroid ointment which eased the itchiness right away and cleared up the rash in about three days! My scars are healing nicely and I am currently using mederma four times a day for about 2 minutes of application/massaging.

Dr. Epstein and his staff are truly wonderful. He is an extemely knowledgable surgeon and cares about finding a natural proportionate implant that best complements your body. Dr. Epstein and the anethesiologist were extremely kind and calming to talk to; they eased any of my worries and answered all of my questions! I even received a phone call from Dr. Epstein the night of surgery asking how I was doing and how my ride home was. Not a lot of doctors would do such a thing; especially sending flowers the day after surgery. Thanks Doctor Epstein!! :) The 24-hour recovery (which was definitely one of the reasons I selected Dr. Epstein) was fantastic and definitely lives up to the expectations. He gives you a booklet that explains what to expect and highlights all the directions for pre-op and post-op care. My cousin had a breast augmentation few years ago by a different surgeon and she came to visit me 3 days post-op; she couldnt believe how great I was doing and that I could walk around and do things without much pain. Her experience was definitely different and alot more painful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Epstein to anyone who is considering getting a breast augmentation done!!
