Breast Implant Revision

Very professional and knowledgable. First class experience from beginning to post operative care. Everything was discussed and taken care of.

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!!!

Breast Augmentation, Breast Implant Removal, Breast Reconstruction

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.

Absolutely love Craig and his team at Cosmetic Surgery For Women, would give 10000 stars if I could. I have full faith in Craig with his expertise and could not be happier with how my breast argumentation turned out. Felt so comfortable in my first consultation with Craig and he took extra care in understanding exactly what I was after which resulted in a perfect result. His team at St Vincent's where amazing, I was not nervous one bit on the day as they all looked after me with exceptional care and experienced minimal pain during recovery and was back to normal at work 1 week later. I would recommend Craig/Cosmetic Surgery for Women to absolutely everyone and wouldn't go anywhere else as I had the best possible experience with them and am absolutely in love with my new boobs. Thankyou Craig and the team xx

I had a breast augmentation carried out by Craig Rubinstein and my experience was great. Craig was very thorough in his pre op examinations and I felt assured that I would be safe in his hands. He also made sure I was being realistic about the outcome I wanted. He was professional at all times and yet friendly, warm and able to have a chuckle. I am very pleased with my results. His staff are lovely and very supportive throughout the whole process. The whole experience was a very positive one and I am happy I chose Craig as my surgeon.

Breast Implant Revision

Hi , I've never written on a forum before but I was so impressed by the care and kindness of Dr Craig Rubinstein's, team that I felt I had to let everyone know. I'm a 58 yr old nurse working in Melbourne. I had breast implants done in 1990. (So long long time ago, back when there was all those rumours about them being bad for you). They were beautiful and I wasn't getting them removed. I've had regular breast checks and mammograms especially since I turned 50 yrs old, all was always great. Still a month ago I found a lump and freaked out (forget being the calm rational nurse). I had all the tests; mammograms and MRI and my GP just said the Surgeon will let you know al the results...great! I was sent to Dr Craig Rubinstein in Hawthorn East. I arrived 30 mins early for my appointment carrying tons of x rays, MRI scan with a sick feeling in my tummy. Nothing could have been kinder than the receptionist who despite only having just opened the doors, sat me down, made me a coffee and talked of general things. Dr Rubinstein was fantastic he explained that my breast implants had ruptured due to age and would need replacing. All panic over, I booked the first available appointment and had the surgery at ST V's in Kew. Dr Rubinstein's kind professionalism keeping me informed all through this period was amazing. He is never too busy to answer questions often reassuring you on a point before you've had time to ask it. The results are fantastic. I loved my breasts before and was afraid that they couldn't possibly be as good... I'd say they were better. I've had no pain with the procedure just a bit uncomfortable or tightness this is taken care of by the pain killers provided. They look fantastic. The nurses in his rooms are so gentle that the post op appointment was great. I've even booked in more treatments. SO if you need any advice on removal and replacement I would really recommend Dr Rubinstein and his fantastic team in Hawthorn East.

Breast Lift - Mastopexy, Tummy Tuck

The most wonderful Dr Craig Rubinstein, from the first appointment in the clinic to the last appointment and every appointment in-between was professional, understanding & kind in every way. Everything was smooth & nothing was too much trouble, the staff at the clinic were incredibly caring and always helpful. Absolutely no faults! After having my surgery with Dr Craig Rubinstein at Cosmetic Surgery for Women and how wonderful everything went I would definitely recommend Dr Craig Rubinstein at Cosmetic Surgery For Women! I could not of dreamed of a better experience, and I absolutely am in love with my new body! Thank you so much.”

I had a Breast Augmentation with Dr Craig Rubinstein. From the minute i walked in for my first consultation the whole team were very welcoming, down to earth and accomodating to my every need. Dr Craig Rubinstein was very professional, and made me feel very comfortable. I am extremly happy with my result, I would, and do recommend Dr Craig and his team to any woman who is looking to having this procedure done.

Breast Implant Removal, Tummy Tuck

I chose to have silicone gel breast implant removal (cause: rupture/encapsulation of R breast) from initial 2001 surgery performed by other plastic surgeon. In addition, I wished to investigate TT-Abdominoplasty. April 2015 I sourced Cosmetic Surgery for Women (CSFW) on line and was extremely impressed with the website’s surgeon profiles, information and image gallery. Coincidentally, my GP also recommended Craig Rubinstein of CSFW for ‘all the bells and whistles’. After meeting with Craig, I no longer wished to make a comparison referral, confident with my choice in Craig and CSFW. I can attest post-op of the exceptional value and holistic care from Craig, Kate de Zylva (Patient Advisor – Registered Nurse) and CSFW staff. Craig offered consideration, attention and care from initial consultation to pre-op to hospital to post-op reviews. Throughout, I appreciated Craig’s honest and personal demeanour, whilst offering a professional perspective and opinion. Kate reviewed my well-being and recovery each day whilst in hospital and liaised with the hospital staff, which enabled me to put all my energy toward recovery. The team work between Craig, Kate and hospital was clearly evident. The TT scar is healing beautifully and I am ecstatic with my flat stomach and appearance. My breast scars are healing well also and I do not miss the implants. I initially requested Mastopexy (breast lift) together with TT but Craig insisted I wait for the implant removal wound area to heal for up to six months. He even suggested to not perform breast lift as TT would offer the right balance. So far I agree with Craig’s appraisal and am learning to love my real breast shape again! I believe Craig’s approach to surgery and each procedure is measured and assessed to suit each individual. I highly recommend Craig and his team at CSFW.

Nipple Surgery

From the moment Dr. Craig Rubinstein walked into the room and sat down to talk to me i knew i was in the best hands. He is so professional in his approach and put me at ease straight away. He listened intently, offered his opinion and i trusted his judgement 100%. I am thrilled beyond words with the result post operatively and thank him with all my heart. I will forever be grateful to him and my only regret is that i didn't come to see him years ago!

Breast Augmentation

Originally I went to Craig wanting a mummy makeover - a BA and TT. I was blown away when Craig recommended I NOT have a TT or lipo on my tummy because the scar and overall results would not be worth it given the minimal amount of saggy skin I had to remove. I had always hated my belly, especially after having 2 kids, but to hear from one of Australia's top plastic surgeons that he advised against a TT made me realise it wasn't that bad after all. I don't think you'll find too many surgeons this honest and realistic.My boobs were another story. I have never even been able to fill a AA cup. Even when I was breastfeeding my boobs only grew to an A cup.Craig asked numerous questions to gain a thorough understanding of what kind of breasts I wanted. Before my surgery I racked up 4 visits to his practice to discuss sizing, try on sizers and to use the Vectra 3D imaging. On a number of visits I had to take my baby and this was never a problem with Craig or his staff. As a Mum with little family support, this added to my appreciation of Craig and his staff.On the day of surgery Craig made me feel at ease. I was pleased to hear him say the surgery went well whilst I was recovering later that night in hospital.My recovery in the first week went really well and I attribute this to Craig's surgery skills. I had no bruising and was off all heavy pain medication by day 3 and off Panadol by day 5. At my one week visit, Craig and one of his lovely nurses gave me the run down on care for the next 8 weeks and I was fitted with two sports bras - size 10 C! Whoo Hoo! I'm now day 9 and feel amazing. I feel like I could go for a run although I know this is off the cards for a number of weeks. I'm buzzing and this is partly due to having gorgeous boobs. They still have much dropping to do but I can already tell that they are the perfect size for me. And as a bonus they have completely made me forget about my flabby tummy as I now look in proportion. So I got the mummy makeover I wanted after all.One of the reasons I chose Craig for my BA was the complete care package he offers. Only one fee to cover everything (surgery, bras, post op care pack etc) and I'm encouraged to eventually visit yearly. I know if there are any problems with my boobs down the track Craig will fix them. Craig and his staff are friendly, attentive and nothing is a problem.I'm happy to share my before and after pics, and answer any questions - just send me a request.

Breast Reduction

Just over a year ago now I had a breast reduction which I have wanted to have done for many years and was too scared to pursue as I had known a few people who had previously had this type of surgery done including my own sister and they were not happy with the results. I finally gathered enough courage and did a lot of research on the internet and talked to people who were pleased with their results. I chose to go see Dr. Rubinstein because he had an excellent reputation and came highly recommended by my local doctor. Upon meeting Dr. Rubinstein for the first time he made me feel extremely comfortable and was very encouraging and informative as was all the staff at his clinic. The caring natures and professionalism of everyone at the clinic was like walking into a family which made the decision really easy. I have more confidence in myself now and I can't recommend him enough, I love my new smaller and well proportioned breasts and now wish that I had done it many years ago.

Breast Implant Removal

Nine years ago I had breast augmentation. I had 300cc implants placed sub-pectoral. Within 7 years, a rupture occurred in one implant. My original surgeon replaced both implants. Within two years of the revision surgery another rupture occurred. Although, apprehensive about my decision, I decided I wanted them removed without replacement. My plastic surgeon that I had complete trust and confidence in now concentrated only on facial surgery and no longer worked in the area of breast surgery. He spoke to a colleague, whom he held in high esteem, for advice on my situation. This colleague was Dr Craig Rubinstein, who so kindly offered to take me on as his patient. As my original surgeon was very well renowned in the area of plastic surgery, I knew, whoever he recommended would be an excellent surgeon and I would be in good hands. The moment I met Dr Rubinstein, I immediately felt at ease. He is so welcoming, warm and friendly. His calming disposition and patience removed all my anxiety. As I was apprehensive about my decision, he discussed my options in clear detail. He also took the time to ring me and go through anything I was unsure of. He is a great listener with loads of patience and such a caring attitude. I was nervous the morning of my surgery but the minute I saw him, his compassion, warmth and kindness shone through, and once again made me feel relaxed and confident in my decision. What a nice gesture to awake after surgery to find a beautiful gift of toiletries. Although extremely anxious about my choice of having implants removed without replacement, I am now elated. A difficult decision and not the choice for everyone, but the right decision for me. Aesthetically, I had envisaged the outcome would not be great, however I am REALLY happy with the results. I love having the “weight off my chest “ and being able to sleep on my stomach again. My implants had looked so natural but I am now so happy to be back to my natural self. If you are hesitant about removal, don’t be. Not only does Dr Rubinstein have the most caring bedside manner, he is an amazing surgeon. He did an exceptional job on my breasts and pain was minimal. I cannot end this without mentioning the terrific staff Dr Rubinstein has on his team. The moment you walk into his rooms you are greeted with a smile. I received wonderful care and attention from his nurses, Kate and Hannah. On my post operative visit I felt so welcomed by everyone and was again pleasantly surprised with a beautiful package of gifts. After being so fortunate to have Dr Rubinstein perform my surgery, the upsetting news of a second rupture actually turned into a positive experience with great results. If you are looking for an exceptional, skilled surgeon with compassion, warmth and genuine care for his patients look no further. Dr Rubinstein and his team are wonderful.

Breast Augmentation

It's been nearly 11 years post op since Craig Rubinstein performed my breast augmentation. I was a small B cup and decided to go to a C cup. Craig was incredibly supportive, professional and understanding throughout the entire procedure. I never felt overwhelmed or pressured in any way. Still to this day he continue's to care for my well-being as his patient nearly 11 years on. I have recommended Craig many times, and have never heard any negative stories. All the ladies I know including myself, love our breasts and the confidence we gain in and out of our clothing. A+++++ I couldn't rate him and his team any higher, they're all amazing. Love your work! Chelsea xxx

Tummy Tuck Revision

I had my first tummy tuck with another surgeon in 2005 I was left with a kelloid and a lot of sagging skin aswell as thick upper tummy and a very bad belly button, I was very depress, I have seen a lot of plastic surgeons for a consultation and I didn't feel comfortable in any of them untill I found doctor craig in one of a forum, I set a date for consultation in sept 2013 I read all the thankyou letters and cards in there reception,and he made me very comfortable and on that date I paid a deposit and schedule a tummy tuck in November, The day of my surgery I was a bit nervous but dr craig made me so comfortable all I remembar last was he was holding my hands and I fall asleep. I woke up and I only feel minor pain, I wasn't shaking just like my first surgery, didn't had a binder on me for the first few days my doctor reckon I didn't need it. I had a look at my tummy and I was in tears for the first time in 20 years I don't have a saggy skin and almost all my stretchmark is gone, my doctor is a gift from God I always said to my self he got a magic hands. After care I can assure he is the best doctor who give the best after care, I have seen him almost every six to 8 weeks for the past 10 months he is perfectionist he won't be satisfied untill the scar diminish. I have a very thin scar. I am asian so I am prone to keloid but dr Craig has given me the after care to almost diminish the scar. I owe this doctor my life hahaah all my worries and insecurities about my body has diminish he given me the body that I didn't even had in my younger age. Im 39 and I am very happy on how dr Craig turn my ugly post baby belly into small thin clean belly
