Breast Augmentation

Dr Craig Rubinstein is truly the best plastic surgeon. I wish I went to him twenty years ago. Seeing the truly amazing work he has done on me I would be nervous if someone I knew went elsewhere. I highly recommend him to everyone out there. Don’t got to anyone else. Dr Craig Rubinstein is not only the best surgeon but is also one amazing individual. He genuinely cares about his patients and makes you feel so comfortable. 11/10 to this man he is a gem ?

Breast Reduction

I am 10 weeks post breast reduction and am so incredibly happy with my results, best thing I have ever done for myself. The whole experience with Craig, from the first appointment to a checkup yesterday, has been handled with such care that I was put completely at ease immediately. The nurses and reception staff at the clinic are all so friendly and amazing and always happy to answer any questions, pre and post op. I would recommend Craig without hesitation.

Breast Lift - Mastopexy

I am currently 4 month post op after having Mastopexy with implants performed by Craig Rubinstein and I couldnt be happier with my results, I had consulted with Craig in 2016 and decided to go ahead in 2019 and looked no further when it was time to book it in then consulting back with Craig. He is so knowledgeable about breast surgery and knows what suits each individual body best! He will tell you about the pro's and the possible con's that can occur undertaking the surgery he doesn't hide anything and gives you the honest truth! He has a lovely bedside manner and makes you feel confident that you are in the right hands. If you do your research you will see he is super skilled! Your always welcomed to return to the clinic prior to surgery and after with any concerns you may want addressed by Craig or his lovely staff. His nursing staff take very good care of you after surgery and are there 24/7 to take your calls for any concerns you may have post operatively.

Breast Reduction

Dr Rubinstein had a very welcoming and safe presence about him. Breast reduction is a very personal and invasive procedure but Dr Rubinstein always made me feel comfortable. At our first appointment I spent about 1 hour with him. I was able to ask questions, tell him my story and voice all my concerns. Every time I saw Dr Rubinstein he was so thorough and caring. He always asked if I had any other questions or concerns and he was very honest in his answers. On the day of surgery, I was a bit anxious but once Dr Rubinstein started to prepare me for surgery, seeing how much care and passion he demonstrated in wanting to achieve the best result and outcome for me, made me feel more relaxed and ready for the experience. Dr Rubinstein and his team all made me feel like I was not just another number but rather that they were genuinely interested and happy for me. People did not believe that I was a 12H as I hid them so well until I showed them the before photo and then showed them the after photo of me now being a 12D, and they are as amazed as I am, to have been able to achieve the result that I have. I am only 2 weeks after my operation and to say how happy I am is an understatement. I am now a perky and symmetrical 12D! Trusting Dr Rubinstein was the best choice I ever made! The results are amazing and I have never been happier.

Breast Augmentation

I would highly recommend Dr. Craig Rubinstein if you are considering Breast Augmentation. His is very professional as are his team. I had surgery with him 2 years ago and I thought I should write a review for him. I have been so happy with his work. My implants look amazing two years later! I have not had any issues with them. I have been for all my check ups in the last 2 years and I still can't believe that I receive the same service since the first time I walked through the doors at his office. He might be more expensive then other surgeons, but he is worth each cent! When I started researching for a surgeon, he had the best reviews and I totally understand why. My surgery was a success and my recovery was quick. Thank you again to all the team at Cosmetic Surgery For Women.

Tummy Tuck

Couldn’t be any happier with my results from Tummy tuck. My full tummy tuck was in January 2019. I googled plastic surgeons and Craig came up. After reading the reviews I had to go meet him. I felt so welcome and at ease at the consultation that I knew Craig was the right surgeon for me. I also really appreciated his honesty. I had a good recovery and no issues. I am so happy looking in the mirror each day and watching the results. I am so happy with the scars so far too. People I have shown the scars to are amazed at how they look. The staff at the clinic are just so wonderful, helpful and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Craig and his team. Deb

Breast Implant Revision

I had a breast augmentation done by another Melbourne surgeon when I was 19 and I had absolutely hated my chest ever since. Along with the implants being much too big and fake looking, the surgeon had also made my left breast pocket too lateral and too low which made the implant fall into my armpit laying down, as well has having gross nipple asymmetry. I went back to this same surgeon 4 years later to be told it was an exaggeration of my pre-existing anatomy. I went elsewhere for a second opinion, who sided with my belief that the left implant was definitely lower than the right. However, he did not feel surgery was necessary. After 9 years of being incredibly unhappy with my body, my friend referred me to see Mr. Rubinstein, who has literally changed my life. Craig seconded that the implant had “bottomed out” on the left side, and confirmed that the implants were much too large for my body, as well as being the wrong type of implant for a natural look. I originally had 350cc high profile saline implants from the first surgeon. Craig and I discussed that 265cc moderate profile Motiva silicone implants would be best for me… and can I tell you, Craig did such an amazing job! I have such a natural looking result. Being a theatre nurse myself, I know how hard it is to find a surgeon with a lovely bedside manner as well as being a fantastic surgeon. Craig is both of those things. I highly highly highly recommend going to see him.

Craig was an amazing surgeon. he was honest and always looking out for my best interest. I felt incredibly comfortable with him. Craig was laid back aswell as professional which made for a great experience. before my surgery he made me feel at ease about what was going happen and always reminded me that i was making the right decision for myself

Breast Augmentation

I am now just over 2 years post breast augmentation and nipple inversion correction with Craig and I could not be happier or recommend him more highly. The service of Craig and his team is and continues to be exceptional. You really can't put a price on the experience and care of a surgeon like Craig. My sincere advice is leave it to an expert like Craig and his team rather than saving a few dollars in the short term for an inferior (and potential dangerous) alternative. You will thank yourself that you went with Craig, I certainly did (and I did so much research before choosing a surgeon).

Breast Reduction

I would highly recommend Dr Rubenstein to anyone considering a breast reduction. Dr Rubenstein and his staff are so professional and go above and beyond for their patients. I am so happy with the results of the surgery; I have minimal scaring and the recovery has been smooth. The follow up scar treatment and check up appointments have also been fantastic. This surgery has changed my life and I am so happy that I chose Dr Rubenstein to perform the surgery.

Breast Augmentation, Breast Implant Removal

After having my first Breast Augmentation 10 years ago (with another surgeon), I started to develop Capsular Contracture on my right breast after my second pregnancy which had escalated to grade IV within a year. I was emotionally distressed living with the condition as it had affected my appearance and it felt very uncomfortable. Thankfully, I met Dr. Craig Rubinstein who had successfully removed and replaced both my implants. He is proffesional, understanding and with his many years of experience, I immediately trusted that I was in good hands. I'm extremely happy with the results on many levels. I highly recommend Dr. Craig Rubinstein and his team at Cosmetic Surgery who were always warm and made the entire process from Consultation-Surgery-Post Care, a very positive experience. I wanted to take this opportunity to show my appreciation to Craig and his team for taking such great care of me and had fulfilled all my expectations- Thank You!

Tummy Tuck

After bringing two kids into the world and seeing them through to adulthood, I finally decided to do something about the damage that they did to my body. I could get away with holding it in when I was young, but as age marched on I became less happy with what I saw in the mirror. I did a lot of research and had many consultations, but the engaging manner of Dr Rubinstein won me over. I loved the prospect of getting my flat tummy back again, but the scar and new belly button really worried me. Dr Rubinstein was so reassuring that I just held my breath and jumped. I am now six months post-op and the results are beyond my expectation. Dr Rubinstein visited me on the very day I woke up from surgery and he and his team have looked after me all the way along since then to ensure I have the best possible outcome. They care about the management of my scar as much as I do! The scar is steadily going away and my belly button is looking good. This surgery has changed my life.

Breast Reduction

I had a breast reduction in June this year. I chose Mr Rubinstein because (it may sound silly) I got a good feeling when I went to see him for my first consultation. I had made my decision right there and then, and cancelled the consult I had booked for later that day. I am so pleased with the results, and his post-surgery care is so professional and warm. I will highly recommend him to anyone seeking similar surgery.

Breast Lift - Mastopexy

After losing 42 kilos I was left with very saggy and shapeless breasts which is what led me to Dr Rubinstein. After many years of research and contemplating breast surgery I finally booked my consultation with Dr Rubinstein which was one of the best decisions I have made. Dr Rubinstein made me aware of my options from the very start, along with providing me with his honest opinions making me his best interest. His ability to listen and understand my questions, concerns and desired outcomes came from a high level of professionalism, experience and knowledge. Dr Rubinstein showed consistency of his high level of care, knowledge and humour throughout my experience which I am more than grateful for. His beautiful team at Cosmetic Surgery for Women were amazing, demonstrating a high level of care pre and post surgery. I am now 7 weeks post op after having a breast lift with implants and am more than happy with my results. I have natural looking breasts with a size that is in proportion to my body. Dr Rubinstein is truly an amazing surgeon and I recommend him at the highest level possible.

Tummy Tuck Revision

A gentleman, a scholar, and a damn good plastic surgeon! I have been one of Craig's patients for 8 years, I am also a healthcare professional. When I was looking to have and abdominoplasty (appronectomy) after a significant weight loss, I asked around. I was never going to go into this lightly (no pun intended). Months of research, both medical and anecdotal went into my decision making process. I've worked in my field for nearly two decades, however plastics was not my area, so in doing my research I surveyed everyone I came across, from his peer's - fellow surgeon's, anesthetists, GP's, nurses,theatre staff, ward clerks and orderly's. "Who's the best", and the nicest?" (In my experience it's very hard to find an awesome practitioner who is genuine, with great people skills) T'was a resounding result! Craig was THE MAN! Having now been a repeat client for the past 8 years, I could NOT fault him, his staff at the Hawthorn clinic, the hospitals he operates through, their staff and the amazing after care, which I heard is lacking in other practitioners. You can meet a lot of Dr's who will promise you the world, but when push comes to shove they don't deliver, however Craig and his time are genuine, kind and straight up from the word go! When you are with him (them) you truly, and genuinely feel like you are the centre of the universe, and I can smell BS from a mile way, particular as this is my field (medical) and there is none of that! No pressure sales, no baloney, realistic exceptions, great work and most importantly brilliant ongoing after care! When people ask me now who to see, my and only answer is Craig Rubinstien. I did the research, and I will always go back to him. I am continuously happy with his work and all that are associated with him. He once told me "you are my public representative, if you aren't happy and don't look good, and feel great, that reflects on me!" He is no "fly bye nighter" in it for a quick buck, and honestly cares that you look and feel amazing. The rooms are in Hawthorn are spectuaular, I honestly felt a bit overwhelmed when I first went there, but there is no pretense and you don't feel self conscious, as the girls on reception make you feel right at home. Everyone is the same to them, whether you be a celeb, rock star, WAG, stay at home mum or a humble nurse, like myself, we are all treated like princesses. I can not recommend Craig and his team highly enough.

Breast Implant Removal

For anyone considering breast surgery for any reason I would highly recommend Craig... He is exceptional at what he does and his clinical excellence is demonstrated by the results he is able to achieve. Not only is he an amazing surgeon but he has a lovely warm caring manner which makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable. He is also very honest and listens to what you want to achieve.... I have just had ruptured implant removal and replacement surgery with Craig 2 weeks ago and I am absolutely amazed with my results!!! My breasts look so full and natural now! I wasn't sure how they would look afterwards and the results have definitely exceeded my expectations!!! I am so happy!!! Also my post op recovery has been really good, and I believe that a lot of this can be attributed to Craig's surgical techniques and expertise and his team and the level of support you receive from the first time that you contact them which is ongoing through out your journey. They are just like one big happy family and they welcome you with open arms. So I would like to say a big Thank You to Craig, Kate and the rest of the team for taking such good care of me and giving me the best outcome ever!!!

I am a mum of a young boy and after breast feeding for 15months it was time I looked to correct them. I never really had nice looking breasts, they were a good B cup but set handing with the areola so large it was taking most of the breast area. So not nice. This was a big decision for me as I take any surgery seriously especially when it's elective. I was recommended to many however Dr Rubinstein was by far the best. But it's not even just about him, it's the whole experience. From the moment you enter into the practice the staff greet you with kindness and a smile, not just an other number. The fact is every single patience has their own emotional journey for whatever procedure they are there for and they seam thoughtful of this. I especially loved Kate, Dr Rubinstein's nurse. I had five star treatment from start to today. Dr Rubinstein is funny, kind and for once I met a surgeon who didn't make it all about himself. Honestly all other surgeons spoke so much about themselves they hardly took the time to get to know me. From the consultations to the surgery the service remained consistent. He has his own private team at the hospital and you know you are being taken care of. He was open and honest that he was trying to do so much in the one surgery that there was a possibility for a small correction, however it did not bother me one bit, as I appreciated the honesty and desire to get it perfect. My case was not a straight forward one, I wanted a breast lift with NO implants and I wanted them to look beautiful with no assistance per say. One breast was larger than the other etc.. Post surgery, the stitches were internal and so delicate, the incision he made, was simply the straightest neatest cut I've ever seen and I was up and about straight away. His team is A+, kind but highly skilled. The next day Kate came to visit with a little pack of peppermint tea, arnica and other kind, thoughtful things for my recovery. I was very impressed! I also received a call after my one night in hospital to find out how my first night at home went etc. Post surgery it's now been 8 weeks and they are stunning. Honestly I can't say how happy in am. They are perfect. I'm a little puzzled as to how he achieved this result with no implants etc. The only tiny little thing is that the right nipple and areola may be slightly too high but that specific breast is still a little puffy and needs time to settle, wont be surprised if it just shifted right into place. When I mentioned this to Dr Rubinstein, he agreed and said to give it time. He never once tried to make it out that it wasn't there or that I was

Breast Augmentation

I could not be happier with my BA! Craig was an excellent surgeon from start to finish and he and the team at Cosmetic Surgery for Women made me welcome and comfortable from day one. A BA can be quite overwhelming (it's a big decision) but I felt completely confident and reassured because of the high quality and professional team handling my procedure. Craig is very professional and caring and worked with me to make sure I got the outcome I was looking for (whilst making my expectations realistic, which I found really reassuring). Craig's post care services were incredible and I honestly couldn't fault anything. If you are seeking a BA, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Craig as a plastic surgeon.

Breast Reduction

I had a breast reduction in February and have never been happier! Craig is an incredible surgeon; he's professional, kind, and has a wonderful bedside manner. I'm 23 and have wanted to get a reduction since I was 16. When I had my consultation, Craig answered every question before I could even ask. He put my mind at ease and explained the process in very specific detail. My surgery took place at St. Vincent's Hospital in Kew and the staff there are all helpful, professional and kind. I was quite nervous before the procedure - because I had never had surgery before - but Craig constantly reassured me the entire time I was there. When I woke up, I was not in pain at all. I did feel sick, but that was because of the anaesthesia. My breasts did not hurt at all during the 3 weeks I took off to recover; it was uncomfortable but not painful. No worse than period pain I would say. I went from a size H to a C/D (I'm in between) - down 5 sizes!!! I actually lost 2.5 kilos - that's how heavy my breasts were before surgery. As part of the package deal I got with Craig, I received 3 free Fraxal (laser) appointments to get rid of the scarring. My scars are almost gone now, 6 months later. Every time I see Craig, he is super happy to see my progress. He is very compassionate and always asks if I have any questions. If you are considering having breast reduction surgery, go straight to Craig. The reduction can be a scary thing to contemplate - at least it was for me - but I had no issues or worries when I was in Craig's hands. He is the best surgeon I have ever come across and I will recommend him to everyone! If you have any questions - especially if you're a young girl considering this surgery - don't hesitate to get in contact with me!

I could not be recommend Dr Craig Rubinstein as the best in his field , the entire team at Cosmetic Surgery for Women make you welcome from the first time you arrive at the surgery. Craig's team especially Kate look after you as if you are a member of his family. I can't thank them enough. I love my new look.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr Rubinstein really looked after me for my breast implant removal operation. I have assymetrical breasts (which he said to address later down the track if I want to) and have had health issues so getting them out was a priority for me to feel natural and be healthy. He fully agreed and was supportive of my decision, he even reduced the price to help me out as I had been struggling with things the past few years. His warmth & humour immediately put me at ease, but at the same time, I knew I was in the hands of a professional. He was conservative and logical in his approach. The original surgeon who put them in (who I was going to get to remove them) said he would take them out, with the capsule and do a lift all at the same time, and warned me it was traumatic for my breasts and also asked if I had concidered ever showing my breasts to a man again!) I was horrified, hence why I looked elsewhere. So being quite vulnerable, Dr Craig put my mind at ease by saying he would remove them, NOT the capsule and would address any lift/ assymetry issues LATER if needed. It made sense to me that it take a while for the breast skin to shrink and settle down after surgery so made no sense to reshape them during the initial surgery. Dr Rubinstein was thorough during my initial visit, said take my time to decide, there is no rush, but I booked straight away as it felt right. I was quite scared going in and he made me feel at ease again, visited me after surgery and at the end of the day. Kate came the next day with a little bag of things including bras, and homeopathics for post surgery, and probiotics. To me this stuff really matters and shows someone cares. I went back I think in 2 weeks when they took off the tape, gave me some free bras, had a nice chat and also gave me a voucher for a facial. Everything was included, and they ALWAYS made me feel like they really cared. I am so appreciative of Dr Rubinstein, and the work he does, the culture he has created. Please, anyone thinking of getting a procedure, see Craig first, or at least as someone for an opinion, has he WILL look after you. He is a man who cares more about the patient and his integrity than just booking in surgeries. Thank you sincerely, Dr Rubinstein!

Breast Reduction

Craig did surgery for my asymmetrical breasts. The job he has done is second to none. My breasts look amazing, I have body confidence back and I had the most amazing experience with him as my surgeon. He is genuine, caring, personable and has a distinct eye for aesthetics. Craig will find a solution you are happy and comfortable with. He could have easily given me a more complicated alternative that I didn't need but he opted for the most natural, cost affordable and perfect option that I have been left extremely happy with. I thank you Craig for you work! And I do not hesitate to recommend Craig to anyone because he truly loves his work and cares for each individual patient. You will not regret choosing him as your surgeon.

In my opinion Craig Rubinstein is an absolute genius. I'm now 8 weeks post abdominoplasty and I never ever imagined the results to be this breathtaking. He has changed my life physically and emotionally and I'll be forever so grateful for his incredible work

Breast Augmentation

I cannot speak more highly of Dr Craig Rubinstein. My entire experience with him from start to finish was fantastic. Craig was extremely kind, yet honest, about the realistic expectations of my surgery, educating me on the facts rather than telling me what I wanted to hear. His team are absolutely brilliant and made me feel so comfortable. Prior to going into surgery I was naturally very nervous however as I was wheeled into theater I was introduced to every member of his team. They were so welcoming and the anesthetist even asked what music I wanted to have played. It was such a small and simple gesture yet it made me so comfortable. I cannot thank the Craig and his team enough for such a positive experience. I am over the moon with the results and would recommend anyone considering breast augmentation to go and see Craig, you won't regret it.

Breast Augmentation

Could not be happier!! From the very first consultation I knew I had made the right decision. Dr Rubinstein made me feel comfortable on every occasion, nothing ever felt awkward or creepy. I put it down to his 'dad humour'. Very professional and extremely knowledgeable. The nurses at Cosmetic Surgery For Women (hawthorn) could not have been more accommodating. They understood what look I wanted and what would suit MY body which helped me come to my decision. The post-surgery care was what really got me through it. I know a lot of people decide to go to thailand or bali but honestly after my surgery it was reassuring to know I had the highest level of care awaiting me. Craig and his team even visited me just after the operation to check in, and I was sent home with a bunch of aftercare - bras, supplements for healing, lotions, probiotics, even ginger tea! Craig makes sure he sees you regularly after the surgery. I think I saw him 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months post op. All included in the cost as well! I'm now 9 months post-surgery and I have never felt better. I went from an A to a small D. I'm quite petite and exercise heaps so didn't want to go too large. Plus I still wanted to fit into my size 8 bikinis. They look and feel really natural, exactly what I wanted :)

Breast Reduction

I recently had a breast reduction with Mr Craig Rubenstein who works at Cosmetic Surgery for Women at Burwood and it's one of the best things I've done. Mr Rubenstein was recommended to me by another top ENT surgeon who informed me he is one of the best, very welcoming and his patients are always incredibly happy. He was spot on! I went to Mr Rubenstein's rooms for a consultation (after looking into many other cosmetic and plastic surgeons) and was welcomed by a very professional and friendly surgeon as well as all the staff that work with him. I was very impressed by how perfect all of Craig's results were on all his patients and work that I had seen. I myself am a doctor and have worked with many surgeons and have immense praise for Craig. He listened to everything I said in the consultation and answered my questions thoroughly as well as giving me excellent advice. Craig always made me feel so comfortable, he is so friendly and even if there is something that you are nervous about, he will put you at ease knowing you are in very good hands. He is honest and will never do something he doesn't believe will be good for the particular patient. He treats each patient individually and to their specific needs. My expectations for the result of my breast reduction were very high and Craig exceeded any expectations i had. He did such a brilliant job and i couldn't be happier. His skills are one of a kind and there is no doubt i would recommend anyone to go to Craig and have complete trust in him and his work. He looked after me so well after surgery and it's easy to see that he is so genuine and always has his patients best interests first and foremost. He is brilliant, articulate and a perfectionist which is what you want when looking for a top surgeon. The staff at Dr Rubenstein's office, especially his nurses who looked after me, Kate and Hannah are extremely professional and lovely. They make you feel very comfortable and they really do everything they can to look after you and make you feel at ease. All of Craig's staff have so much praise for him and his rooms are such a friendly and caring environment that people just leaving smiling. My entire experience with Craig from beginning to end has been nothing less than perfect and I would strongly and confidently recommend him to anyone who is looking for a surgeon with top skills, who achieves brilliant outcomes and who you can trust that you're in good hands. He is not just a fantastic surgeon with so many years of experience, knowledge and skill, he is a lovely man who cares so much for each and every patient.
