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.
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.
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!
