I just woke up. No pain at all. No swelling. Feeling very excited to see my results!
Iced my eyes all day on/off yesterday until I went to bed. Had my Keflex, Percocets, & some Arnica. I don’t think I’ll need Percocets today. Keeping my head elevated at all times.
You & your staff were amazing! I didn’t expect so many nurses in the room & it made me feel so at ease. You explaining each step & what you were about to do also helped. I felt no fear whatsoever.
I’m very scared to go under for the rhinoplasty (I’ve never had a major surgery) but after yesterday’s procedure I know I will be in good hands, as will my sister Samantha.
I appreciate you reaching out. Looking forward to seeing you on Monday. Have a wonderful day.

Before I forget – I wanted to say thank you again. Everything went as I hoped for – and everyone working in your office was very professional. I know I made the right choice! Please thank Jose, Carmen, dan, Lisa, and Kareliaa for me (I hope I have everyone’s names right). It was very clear everyone knew what they were doing and excellent at patient care. You have a very well run office! Don
Hello Dan and Dr. Epstein,
Well, it’s been one year now and I thought that I would drop you both a letter.
Dr. Epstein, you and your team have given me my confidence back! Since seeing you I have lost 15 lbs and now feel like the guy that I used to be.
I no longer hate having my photo taken and at 54, I’m feeling pretty good about myself. So thank you, thank you! I just cannot tell you how your expertise has changed my life!
Hi Dr. Epstein,
I had an eyebrow transplant in early September and just wanted to let you know I am so excited about the results!
I’ll admit I was a bit worried that it wasn’t going to grow in properly but they are doing great! Such a difference .. thanks again for a wonderful job!
Hello Dr Epstein and Dan,
Hope you are both well and wishing you a Happy New Year!
I am on vacation right now and took some time to look back at the photographs I took pre and post-op. I have to say I was quite horrified at how I looked…no wonder I wasn’t really a happy bunny by the time I flew home – my swollen nose was enormous and I was so worried I was going to look like that forever!
Well, the healing process has been quite slow for me and I still have some slight bruising that just won’t shift…perhaps being vegetarian all these years has not been the best thing for my body as I’m sure I am deficient in something…anyway, I wanted to drop you a line to show you how I look these days. Now that I can see what a difference you made, I would like to thank you for what you have done. I am so happy I did it and it is so liberating to be able to have photographs taken whilst I am smiling and actually not hate the result 🙂
Thank you. I’m doing great. Just on my way to the airport to head home to SLC. You and your staff were delightful. I will be back sometime for a rhinoplasty. My experience at your office was great. Linda was awesome!
You are always welcome to stay at our home if you’re ever in SLC. Have a wonderful day.
*Patient had eyebrow transplant
Heading to the airport now. Doing well. Had some pain last night and I took one Alleve and Tylenol with codeine a few hrs after to sleep. Slept very well. Some mild pain in the back where the strip was taken. Took more Alleve for that. Mild swelling on the left side (the side you started on yesterday) and a little hard to yawn or laugh, but that got a little better from yesterday too.
Thanks for such and wonderful and seamless process, even from afar!
*Patient had grafting
I just wanted to follow up on my eyebrow transplant done in Feb 2016.
I am really happy with the result!!!
I will send in photos in a bit. But I could not be happier! Hair have grown fully and keeps growing so I have to trim very often.
But I am absolutely thrilled! Thank you so much to the whole team!
*Patient had an eyebrow transplant
Just was flying AA and saw your picture as a top doctor in America–Congrats–you deserve it.

You and ur team are a class act. I appreciate u hooking me up That was big time. Please please please do not hesitate to call me if u need anything. Tix to games, im talking hoop games too.

Why’s up Doc.
Been in a bed with an awful cold. Felt it coming on before I got to your office.
I think all is great. Didn’t realize the amount of swelling first in my forehead and then around my eyes. I looked Chinese. But today I look 95 percent normal I’m back to work tomorrow flying to NC for the day.
Hair feels good no worries I can’t even see that anything has been done when I fix my hair. So perfect.
Can’t wait to start working out. And taking a proper shower So far so good. If it keeps going this way I might have to recommend you to people lol
FYI. You have a great staff. My compliments to all of them.
Hey Doc. I’m doing great. Keeping up with my spray, cleaning and rest. As you would know I already finished my antibiotics. So I want to thank you and your wonderful team for not only doing an amazing job at the procedure, but at making me and I’m sure the rest of your clients as comfortable and confident in you and your team as I did.
So sincerely thank you my friend.
Hi Dr. E!
Swelling is pretty much gone, crusts falling off. I’d say the healing process is going well! Thank you for checking, and thank you and your staff for the excellent service!
Yes I feel great! No pain everything is great!
I sent this to you yesterday:
Hi Dr. Epstein it’s N.
Lee wanted me to send you this message to let you know how much he appreciates all you and your staff did for him today! He knows that you went above and beyond in the procedure and the special care he received. We want you to know that we sincerely appreciate your efforts! Lee feels great and said that the post op instructions given to him by Elsa were excellent! But all your staff were truly fantastic! Thank you so much!
Thanks for following up.
The results have been fantastic. I am very very pleased.
*Patient had a hair transplant
I just wanted to write to you to thank you again for what I hope will be a very successful procedure and outcome. I was obviously a little nervous and jittery when we met, so I don’t think I expressed my gratitude sufficiently. I really did feel like I was in great hands and your genuine concern and advice was very comforting. Top to bottom, it was very proffessional. I’d use you again or recommend you to a friend without question. Thanks to your wonderful staff as well! All of it was much appreciated.
Thank you for checking in on me! My experience at Doctor Epstein’s office was wonderful to say the least. All of the staff members, yourself included, were so accommodating and kind throughout the entire process.
I am doing well. The incision on my head is still pretty sensitive, but getting better over time. I’ve had no problems with my eyebrow whatsoever; it both looks and feels great.
Overall, I am very pleased with the procedure and my results thus far. I could not have asked for a better doctor and staff to perform this life-changing surgery for me.
All my thanks and appreciation,
Thanks Dean and Dr. E,
I definitely see results and it makes a huge difference–was just in India and a lot of family noticed. I am actually holding back on telling people just yet as I want the final product to speak for itself.
Sounds good and speak to you in March.
*Patient had hair transplant
Hope you had a good break and thanks for the message.
All seems to be ok, had first normal kind of shower today
i was very impressed with you and your staffs professionalism but most importantly the sense of family. Great to see you giving them a lot of positive reinforcement.
*Patient from Australia
Thanks so much! You guys are the best. All the grafts are growing fast and I haven’t shed any so far. I can’t wait to come back for rhinoplasty. I know you guys are just doing your jobs but I feel like I truly made friends at the practice. You are all so welcoming and made the process so simple. Have a great weekend 🙂
Hey Dr.Epstein! Just wanted to thank you and your amazing staff for all that you have done for me!! I’m very pleased with the way this turned out and I am ready for the next 6-10 months of healing!! Definitely feel like I was treated by the BEST!
*Patient had a facelift
Hi Dr Epstein,
How are you? Hope all is well. I’ve been meaning to email and thank you and your amazing staff for taking care of me. Words can’t describe how reassuring it was to have such genuine people take good care of me, sincerely, thank you for everything.
Thanks again for everything 🙂
I am very happy with my experience with Dr. Epstein during and after the procedure. Even under some time constraints on my side, Dr. Epstein took a great care to listen to my requests and made sure I understood and was happy with the results. After the procedure, the healing has been fast with about 5 to 6 days everything being back almost to 100% normal. The staff and Dr. Epstein were both cordial and at the same time efficient/pragmatic in meeting my requests, giving me information, and ultimately getting great results.
I am really pleased so far with procedure and progress. This has been a very positive experience – an extremely talented Dr. E. and Team that made a genuine personal connection with me while also demonstrating utmost integrity. Thanks again.
Good to hear from you and thank you again for remarkable work.
Hey, Dr. E. I wanted to thank you for the procedure (especially the staff) and results. Post-procedure issues were minimal and I haven’t lost much of the transplanted hair. Mija very much appreciated the help with her cyst. You have an interesting practice. It sure beats the heck out of real estate law. I may be back for the part of my head where the yamaka goes. Have a healthy and prosperous 2015. Dave.
Thank you for your email and sorry for the delayed response. It’s been just over two weeks now since my procedure and I am feeling great and wishing that I could fast forward to about 3 months from now….let me sum up the experience so far:
The procedure went very well – I was “out” for most of it, and nothing hurt at all. When all was said and done, I had two gorgeously shaped, evenly balanced eyebrows, with Dr. Epstein having adjusted the slight shaping and level imbalance of the tattooed eyebrows that I already had . I did also have a lot of bruising all around both eyes, but I expected that since I bruise like a banana ;0) I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home for the next 10 days after that, working from home and generally taking it easy and healing. I followed the post-procedure instructions to the letter, not even daring to wash my hair, lest any water spill onto my brows. ;0) About 7 days post-procedure, the flaking off of the crusting/scabbing began and more and more eyebrow hair was revealed… by 9 days, I was looking at a “clean” set of eyebrows that were so naturally and beautifully shaped for my face, that I realized that this was the way my brows and face would have looked had I never taken a tweezers to them so many, many years ago…I truly believe that Dr. Epstein gave me my own looks back and for this, I am very, very grateful. I also have to thank Linda, who did such an amazing job with the placement of the eyebrows – very nice and natural. Another nice thing is the fact that the color of my brows is just right – it is my own haircolor and not the color of a tatoo or eyebrow pencil.
Close to two weeks post-procedure, the transplanted hairs started falling out, as predicted, so while I was sad to see them go, I did not freak out – Dr. Epstein’s written information on “what to expect” is so crucial to keeping a patient’s anxiety in check. Right now, there are several scraggly patches/lines of transplanted hairs still hanging around, but for the most part the eyebrows are gone again….this is why I wish I could fast forward 3 months, when hopefully, I will start to see the new growth coming in. My brows look a bit funny and “off” now, with the pale tattoo lines still showing, the intermittent scraggly hairs and the shadow of the transplant line above my right eyebrow (this is the one Dr. E. adjusted a bit higher than the existing tattoo), so I am using eyebrow pencil to adjust this current odd look. I am following the new brow line that Dr. Epstein created, so even the penciled-in eyebrows look better than the tattooed ones!
So, there you have my happy tale…I am so very, very happy that I had this procedure done and thrilled that I chose to have the very best doctor perform the procedure. Of course, I do have to wait to see what happens over the few months and over the next year, but I have every confidence that my eyebrows will grow in and do so beautifully!
Thank you once again, and please send my regards to Dr. Epstein and Linda.
I found out about Dr Epstein by a simple internet search and was amazed to find that a chest hair transplant was not only possible, but a regular procedure at his clinic. For me, it was a big step between actually discovering this, and deciding to go ahead, and the reason I did so was the helpfulness and professionalism of his team. After an exchange of quite a few emails and photographs, I was convinced that it would be the right decision, and before I knew it I had a date booked, plus flights (from the UK) and hotels.
Standards of care before, during and after the operation – which took pretty much all day – were outstanding, and I had total confidence at all times. In the weeks/months afterwards, I had a few concerns which were dealt with swiftly and helpfully by the team, and about 9 months later I am totally delighted with the result, and the decision to go ahead with Dr Epstein. I would strongly recommend him to anyone thinking of a transplant. I’m not planning any follow-ups, but if I were I wouldn’t bother asking anyone else, I’d come straight back to Dr Epstein.
I am very HAPPY with the result and grateful as well.
Thanks a lot for the great amazing work!
I’m really glad I went with my gut and decided to travel the long distance to be treated by yourself. I am very grateful for your time, help and expertise.
I am very happy and satisfied with my experience with Dr. Epstein and the team, it was a great experience. My nose look great and the recovery is doing well to , I am feeling great. In probably another 2 weeks my nose will be pretty much back to normal. Thank you so much for everything you have done.
Florida was also a beautiful and amazing place, I wish I would live in this beautiful weather all year around! I don’t know when I will have the chance to go back there but If I do I will let you know I can show the final product to Dr. Epstein..
Hey Dr. E! I wanted to say thank you again! I am so pleased with the results and I can’t wait for it to completely heal. Your entire office treated me so kindly and i greatly appreciated that fact!
Sorry for taking a while to reply i’ve been really busy getting ready for college and all that. I’m doing great and i’m really loving the results! I just had my 2 month check up with Dr. Epstein and it’s looking and healing great! Thank you soo much for everything.
This is a best investment ever , best decision ever , and best doctor ever !!!!
I’m looking at myself every morning and I can’t believe how did he do this ?????
Thank you very very very much !!!!!!!!!!!
Good morning, Dan,
Thanks for asking, I have felt well throughout the entire process. As I told Dr. Epstein at the end of the day of my procedure, he runs a very classy practice with a very cordial and caring staff. It was a wonderful experience which I do not regret for one moment. I am excited about my future look and I thank you all for helping me obtain it.
Back in 2012, we were talking about getting my hairline to a more “androgynous” state, but in consultation with Doc Epstein, I opted for a more conservative approach, because I was unsure about changing my appearance too much.
Well, time has passed, but the issues behind my anxiety back then about developing male pattern baldness are still present, but I have learned to be more open and accepting about that aspect of myself. So I am at that point where I would appreciate Doc Epstein’s help and service again, and speaking it out, with the goal of not just an androgynous but a more feminine hairline.
Having had such a positive Experience with the team in Miami, I would also like to enquire whether the Doctor does do filing of the brow bone as well!?
I am considering a Florida vacation towards the winter months.
Thanks for getting back to me, and have a great week!
Regards, F R
I am back in New York.
Your staff the day of the procedure was really wonderful. They were all so naturally warm, friendly and good natured it put me completely at ease at a stressful time. They were also competent and worked well together throughout the day. I appreciate that you thoughtfully took the time to make a few sets of revisions to get a result that you were happy with and that you had the confidence to engage one of your assistants for a second opinion. Most Dr’s want to project that they know everything and it was refreshing to see.
I am hopeful for an excellent result and will surely be in touch in any event. I’ll call your office and arrange to come in to have my stitches removed in 9 more days.
Dear Dr. Epstein,
I wanted to say thank you again for today! I am already very happy and think the result will be great I know I was maybe overly careful and I really appreciate your understanding!
I will happily send pictures in a few months when the hair starts growing! I am very excited already.
Also big thanks to your wonderful staff and Dan’s patience.
From the consultation all the way through the surgery Dr. Epstein and his staff were grade A. The operation went smoothly, the staff was caring and friendly. Surprisingly, the recovery period was fast and virtually pain free. If I had to have the surgery again I have no doubt I would choose Dr. Epstein.
Hi Dr. E,
I hope you are doing well….really happy so far…love having enough hair now to get rid of the hats… YAY!!! Have to tell I’ve gotten ALOT of wows from people and how impressed they are with your work….no one can tell my entire hairline are transplants. Been giving your name out to a lot of people….one being my admin. assistant looking into eyebrow transplants.
Could you please tell Dr. Epstein thank you again for the fantastic results? I’m so happy with the outcomes of every single procedure I had with him this past June (hair transplant, eyebrows, and lip lift)! I think they look completely natural and just amazing! Thank you also for all your help in the long road to finally get me booked ;)!
Thank you for your time again Dan and please pass my thanks on to Dr. Epstein as well!
Have a nice week!
All the best,
From first to last my experience with Dr Epstein and his team was a pleasure. Surgery isn’t something I’ve ever gone in for before, so I had dozens (and dozens) of questions before I was ready to commit to a procedure. All of these were handled swiftly, efficiently and honestly by Dr Epstein’s representative, Dan Grantham, and on one occasion Dr Epstein himself replied: impressive service. After two or three weeks I was convinced I was dealing with a top notch organisation and so I decided to go ahead.
Three months later I was on my way to Miami – a long and complicated journey from South West England – and I had many hours to wonder whether the experience itself would live up to expectations. The answer is a definite yes. I arrived very early in the morning and was greeted by a friendly and efficient young man called Kyle who took me through the necessary paperwork. Shortly afterwards I met Dr Epstein, then was introduced to the team who would be working on me – mainly Jose and Cynthia (I hope I have remembered their names right). Also in the operating room was a team of three and I think at times four people working on microscopes to prepare the grafts. It felt incredible to be the centre of such attention!
I was told to say if at any point anything hurt, and the team worked very hard to keep me comfortable at all times. It was a long day for everyone (I arrived at 6.45 and left at 7pm) but I can honestly say I enjoyed it. The team who were inserting the grafts were extremely chatty and friendly and although I wasn’t very good company (because I was groggy) they really did seem to enjoy their work.
I returned the following day for a quick check-up and to settle the final bill, because Dr Epstein had managed to do more grafts than originally intended. I had agreed to this in advance, so it wasn’t unexpected. I also got to meet Susie, who I had spoken to on the phone from England on a few occasions.
It was such an enjoyable experience that (don’t laugh) I hope to see you all again later in the year.
This is not because I am addicted to surgery, but because I trust you all and with something like this it is worth paying for the best.
Any surprises? Well, not having had surgery before, I wasn’t expecting the donor sites on my head to hurt as much (though this is easily dealt with by the painkillers provided). Also, I thought the operation would be a breeze, but it was a long, tiring day – and I’ve been sleeping a lot since. Having said which – if you’re going to have this kind of procedure, I would unequivocally recommend Dr. Epstein and his team.
Hi Ed! Sorry I took so long to respond but we are getting Andrew ready for college! I am so incredibly happy with the great care we received from Dr. Epstein and his staff. Even that sandwich for lunch felt heaven-sent to the weary traveler that I was that day. Andrew seems more confident every day. Everything looks good to me, his transplants have not fallen out yet but looks like everything is healing well. I know the hard part will be the waiting to see how many will actually take but we’ve come a long way and are praying for the best. I want to thank you for practically holding my hand from beginning to end. Your help was invaluable. Dr. Epstein is a wonderful person and a great doctor who made us feel at ease. I promise I will take the time to write a longer and more detailed letter about our awesome experience. I look forward to sending pictures of Andrew with his permanent eyebrows!! It will be good to add them to Dr. Epstein’s web site. After all that is how I found out about the center. I hope all is well with you and again thank you so much for all your help.
Good morning! Just arrived back in Jax. I’m sore and groggy but so super excited about my new hairline! I wanted to give you a hug for everything. This has been a dream come true for me & I am so grateful to You and your amazing staff. I’ve wanted this since junior high school. Thank you for checking on me (HUGS).
Hi Dr. Epstein!
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and the staff in Miami for helping me achieve my goals. I flew into Miami the day before my procedure and frankly didn’t get much sleep that night. I was obviously a little nervous and apprehensive about getting a facial hair procedure (Who wouldn’t be?). Nevertheless, I felt calm the minute I walked into the clinic. The staff were very nice and accommodating while I filled out the necessary paperwork. Shortly after, Dr. Epstein walked in and I was able to explain to him exactly what I wanted. The procedure itself lasted about 6 hours with a small lunch break in the middle – a very tasty a la carte meal. My wife was there with me during lunch break and we were able to discuss the progress made. I thought this was a great idea because I could then tell Dr. Epstein what exactly I wanted in terms of finishing touches! In the end, I was very impressed with the results – they were much better than expected. Both the shape and density achieved looked better than I ever imagined. Today is day 5 after my procedure. The scabs are completely gone, just a little redness visible, and I feel great about deciding to go ahead with this procedure. I will definitely recommend Dr. Epstein in the future. I will be sending photos very soon!
