Wonderful experience

I recently had a breast lift and motiva implants done by Dr. Epstein. I could not be happier with my results and overall experience from the initial consultation all the way through until now (about six weeks since I had surgery). After having two babies back to back my breasts were just not what they used to be, I was a little hesitant about getting them so soon with a four month old and 1 1/2 year old at home to take care of but Dr. Epstein ensured me that I would be up and ready to go that same night. He was a hundred percent right! The 24 hour recovery process is exactly that...I was able to lift my arms up over my head right after surgery while I was in recovery, when i got home I napped for two hours, got up ate dinner and relaxed, I was able to lift and hold both my daughters the next day. The implants that I chose were the motivas, I never thought my breasts would look and feel SO REAL! I am beyond happy and would recommend him to anyone interested in having any type of surgery he does. All of the nurses and his entire staff were there for my every need. The only down side to my experience was breaking out in a rash that was very itchy and uncomfortable. When I called the office with concerns about the rash they got me an appointment the same day, Dr. Epstein informed me that it was not an uncommon thing and he has seen it before, something called contact dermititis. He was there to answer all of my questions and prescribed me a steroid cream to apply. Now that the rash has cleared up they are literally perfect! Couldnt be happier! Thank you to Dr. Epstein and his great team for making me feel amazing!!

Excellent Experience

As a physician working in a large NYC hospital and I came to Dr. Epstein for my breast augmentation procedure because I knew he was the very best. My goals for my breast augmentation surgery were to have larger, natural appearing, round, teardrop shaped breasts. However, due to the demands of my job as a physician, I was unable to tolerate any procedure that would require extended down time. My best friend had her breast augmentation by Dr. Epstein a year prior and loved her results so naturally I considered his expertise. After researching Dr. Epstein’s website and looking up his credentials and reviews, I knew that he would be able to help me achieve my augmentation goals. From my first visit to his office, Dr. Epstein and his staff were kind, warm, knowledgeable and professional. Together, they supported me and walked me through the process of choosing an implant and size that complimented my body. I ultimately decided to join the Motiva Implant study because of implants felt like my own breast tissue and were capable of maintaining the tear drop shape I had desired. On the day of surgery, Dr. Epstein and staff made me feel comfortable from my time in pre-op and while in the OR. Once out of the OR, my pain was well controlled, I was monitored closely. While in the recovery room, I was able to lift my arms over my head without any pain or discomfort. Just as Dr. Epstein advertises a one day recovery, on the first day after my surgery (POD#1), I was able to join my family Christmas shopping at Target without issue. Today, I have approached my 1-month post-op day and I couldn’t be happier with the results of my breast augmentation. My swelling has resolved, my breasts are rounder, larger, soft, with minimal scarring and I am even unable to palpate my own Motiva implants. If you are looking for a natural appearing breast enhancement with a 24-hour recovery and minimal scarring, consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Epstein. He really does excellent work! -GIRLMDNYC

24 hr recovery- IMPRESSED!!!

When looking for the right plastic surgeon... experience, skills, handy work and of course how the 'final product' post surgery, me and my husband spend days researching. Final consensus - Dr. Epstein is the full package of everything we were looking for. I first found Dr. Epstein from reading all of his reviews online, delving into the case studies, before/after photos on his website, and decided to schedule a consult with him. Dr. Epstein and his staff are wonderful, they were extremely helpful and professional from the beginning. I am a nurse and would recommend Dr. Epstein and his staff to anyone, he is a man of his word and I trust him. He has a lot of experience and knows what would work well for each individual. Dr. Epstein actually took the time to understand what I wanted for my breast augmentation and valued what my opinion was. Personally I did not want large breasts, I was aiming for a small C cup (my original size is an A cup) and of course I was worried that I would end up with a size that was too large. That was NOT the case with Dr. Epstein. I had my breast augmentation about 3 weeks after my consultation and the cup size is PERFECT! Leading up to, and the day of surgery the staff made sure that I understood everything and ensured that I was involved in the care. The 24 hr recovery is 100% true with Dr. Epstein. The day of surgery went extremely well, I woke up feeling a little soar but good to go. I ended up going to Panera Bread and went home to take a 3 hour nap. After my husband and I went shopping at the outlets and after dinner -- might I add again this was the SAME DAY of my surgery. A few days later I was back to work as a nurse, which is a busy and physical job without any pain. The incision size is extremely small and clean. Dr. Epstein even called my house that night after my surgery to check how I was feeling! That is a fantastic physician. A few days later there were flowers delivered by Dr. Epstein and his staff to my home! They really are such a great crew. Very impressed. Up to date- I am a few months out of surgery and I love the size and shape of my breasts. My scars are barely visible (super small and fading away fast) and the breasts are settling in nicely. I went with the motiva clinical trial because the shape, size, durability and feel of these implants are top of the line and like no other implant that I have seen! They fit perfectly to my body and they look extremely natural. I can't even feel the motvia implants because they are so soft and feel like natural breast tissue. They are amazing and when standing the motiva implants take the beautiful tear drop formation but when laying flat the implant takes on the shape that a natural breast would when laying flat. These implants look as though they belong on my body.

Motiva Breast Augmentation

My experience with Dr. Epstein was absolutely incredible. Because of his 24 hour recovery, I was able to grab dinner with my friends just 5 hours post surgery and within less then 24 hours was able to Attend my sons soccor game with no issues, pain or discomfort. I was back proceeding normal activities almost Instantly. My scars are so faint that they almost look non existent. The outcome of my breast augmentation couldn’t have been any better. Dr Epstein made my choice for the Motiva Implant very simple. They feel and look so natural, and the compliments I have received are endless. I don’t see why anyone would want any other implant! And the best part is that you are compensated and paid for every checkup appointment because of the study ! They truly are the best and so is he !!!!! I’m one PLEASED, HAPPY & CONFIDENT patient !!! I will forever love Dr. Epstein and the confidence he gave me and the Motiva implant is top of the line.

Amazing

Dr Epstein is amazing doctor. He made me feel comfortable from the moment I met him. He performed my breast augmentation and picked the perfect size for my body. His special techniques make the recovery only 48 hours. I was able to lift my arms over my head after surgery. No wraps, drains, or bandages. He also offers Motiva implants where you can be part of a study. They are newest type of implants and are AMAZING!
