I had been considering breast augmentation surgery for a long time. I had four consultations with different plastic surgeons, and chose Dr. Epstein because he came very highly recommended by a friend and a number of other women who had undergone the procedure. Prior to the surgery I remember being nervous and worried about my recovery, but the staff was very reassuring and put my mind at ease. I left the office after the procedure and was surprised I was not in pain. I was mildly sore, a bit stiff, and had some swelling that was negligible. I followed all of the post-surgical instructions, took a nap, and woke a few hours later and still no pain. By the end of the day I was lifting my arms over my head and was able to dress and undress with no problem. When Dr. Epstein called the following day to check on me, I remember telling him I didn’t have any pain and asked when I was going to feel it. He said you won’t if you haven’t by now. I almost didn’t believe him, but he was right. That day I met a friend for lunch and he was very surprised I was doing so well and said you don’t even look like you just had surgery. I had taken off from work the day of the surgery and the two days following, expecting I needed the time to recover but didn’t realize it was only a one day recovery. I returned to work early because I was capable of doing everything I could do prior to the surgery. I can’t say enough positive things about my experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Epstein and his staff.
