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.
