Named a Top Doctor by US News & World Report and a recipient of the prestigious Castle Connolly “Top Doctor” award for Excellence in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Michael A. Epstein is one of the country’s leading plastic surgeons specializing in rhinoplasty.
In private practice since 1992, Dr. Epstein has performed numerous rhinoplasties on men, women and teens with beautiful, natural results. With attention to every detail and a commitment to ensuring that all facial features are in harmony with one another, his talent and skill can be seen in his rhinoplasty photo gallery showcasing a plethora of before and after images. What rhinoplasty patients appreciate most about Dr. Epstein (in addition to their beautiful new noses!) is that he takes the time to get to know them. During the consultation, he asks questions and listens carefully to the responses he receives. It’s very important for him to understand his patients’ needs, why they are interested in rhinoplasty, and what their expectations are.
Equally important to Dr. Epstein is education. The process for re-shaping a nose is quite complex and Dr. Epstein wants to make sure that his patients thoroughly understand the procedure from start to finish in order to help them make the most informed decision about their rhinoplasty. He explains every detail about the surgery itself, the pre-operative plan, and the recovery process. In his experience, a well-informed patient is ultimately a happier patient; and he wants every patient to be happy.
An active member of the prestigious American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Epstein has been in private practice since 1992. He performs most surgeries in the convenience of his fully accredited surgical center, Northbrook Plastic Surgery, located within his newly renovated Northbrook office suites. Complete with state-of-the-art equipment and a team of board certified anesthesiologists, patients receive the highest standard of care, ensuring that the experience is as safe and comfortable as possible.
Dr. Epstein received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan and his medical degree from Wayne State University in Detroit. He trained in general surgery at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago and returned to Detroit for his Plastic Surgery fellowship.
