i was referred to Howard Webster by my general surgeon, From the first appointme I realised that I would be in very good hands for any treatment needed.. I could not have wished for a better result. At all times Mrt. Webster treated me with a very gentle and respecful approach. I have never had such understanding and patient professional treatment before. On top of all this he is a brillliant surgeon, and one that listens!

I was recommended to see Dr Howard Webster by two separate sources. The people who recommended him were a doctor and separately, a friend who had a friend who had implants by Dr Webster. I only wanted to do this in a really safe, professional way by a member of the Plastic Surgeon's Association and with whom I felt completely comfortable with and who my research and intuition guided me towards. After visiting some other surgeons including interstate and doing much research, I decided on Dr Webster and feel comfortable booking in the procedure. It helps that I have family who can support me in the city he works. He listened to what I wanted and how I felt and wasn't set on his own agenda, he explained the risks, and was very very assuring and professional. Most importantly, I felt safe - as it is important to when having surgery. I found his offices and staff are and were excellent.

Recommended by a friend in the medical field who had undergone surgery by Dr Webster, and by reading and watching articles about his work. The attention from Dr Webster was remarkable, and the entire hospital staff were wonderful throughout my stay. The nursing and admin staff at Dr Webster's rooms were extremely helpful if I had any concerns. Dr Webster arranged frequent follow-up visits throughout the 6 week post-op period then weekly to bi-weekly until satisfied that all was well. I will always recommend him as the most observant, knowledgeable and caring doctor I have dealt with. I wish I knew about him years earlier, and that there were such choice available for procedures with which to help one address particular body issues.

Excellent experience. Honest, Kind and considerate doctor. Never once tried to sell me anything. Told me all the information I needed in a straightforward manner. Scars are neat, breasts are a great shape and manageable size, tummy is flat.

I had originally had my BA booked in with another plastic surgeon who was offering free consultations, I was so excited about finally doing something ive always wanted however i did not feel that comfortable with him, Thinking i may have rushed into things, I booked my free consultation with Howard were his staff were amazing at getting me a consultation so soon. I was refered to ARC from a lady i had spoken to on forum, So i did some research on Howard and was happy with what i saw, The day i first met Howard at my consultation i automatically felt comfortable with him, He was so nice and funny, He explained every little detail too me, He told me what he thought would work well with my body and it was pretty much what i wanted, I got my 3D vectra scans where i was shown what i would look like with implants the size i wanted, I was very impressed at this point and knew i wanted to book with Howard right away, As i did, I couldnt ask for a better result, Howard has also been great with my check-up's answering all my strange silly questions, I would HIGHLY recommend him too anyone wanting a BA!

Howard Webster was reccommended to me by a friend in the medical field and I feel very fortunate he agreed to help me. Howard and his wonderful team were supportive and very caring from my first visit. I would highly recommend ARC and Howard in particular to anyone considering surgery based on my experience.

Not only did Howard conduct the consultation in a professional manner it was also extremely informative, i felt very comfortable and at ease. I cannot speak highly enough of the care i received before, during and post operation. He did such a professional job. I am ecstatic at the results. I would not have even thought my stomach could look so good. Again if you are after a tummy tuck (i also had the abs stitched back together, from pregnancies, which also look FANTASTIC) I cannot speak more highly of Dr Howard Webster and his team. Look no further!!!!

From our very first meeting I knew that I wanted Mr Webster to be my surgeon. I felt instantly comfortable with him and was very impressed by his level of experience and skill. He has a very kind, caring and gentle approach and I always felt I could ask him any question at all no matter how embarrassing. I have always had complete trust in him, which is definitely the most important thing when choosing your surgeon.

As stated above I would fully recommend ( and I have been ) anyone to meet with Dr Howard Webster and his team to discuss any procedures they are thinking of having. Their warmth, compassion and professional manner made my procedure an easy decision to go ahead and do. Their clinic is clean, beautifully decorated, quiet and welcoming.

Mr Howard Webster was my surgeon. He explained the whole procedure thoroughly and showed me pictures of a womans before and after shots. I was in hospital 4 days and he visited me every day twice one day when I fainted in the bathroom just to check I was ok. That really impressed me.

Howard Webster is the epitome of professionalism, skill and understanding. His impressive commitment to pursue clinical excellence is only equaled by his obvious passion for outstanding patient care and results. The entire surgical experience is well supported by his efficient, caring and friendly nursing/admin staff. I cannot commend Howard highly enough.

From the moment I spoke to Mr. Webster I felt completely confident. He has a very calm, relaxed and approachable manner. You feel that you will be safe in his hands. He makes sure he informs you realistically about the procedure and what results to expect. I never doubted him for one second. I went into the operation without a moment's hesitation. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone who wishes to undergo plastic surgery.

I found Dr Howard Webster to be a really wonderful doctor who has a lovely approachable warm manner and is very knowledgeable about so many aspects of plastic surgery procedures. At my initial consultation he really listened to my concerns (never rushed me when I could tell he was very busy) and answered all my questions very thoroughly. I was very happy with the results I achieved after going through with the procedures I chose. At my follow up appointment he again checked everything was ok and answered all my concerns very willingly. Two days later a little lump appeared on my suture line. I returned to dr webster's office to have him sort it out with no fuss at all. I highly recommend Howard Webster and if I was to choose to have any other plastic surgery procedures done in the future I would not hesitate to seek his services again.

I was recommended to see Howard through a friend who is breast care nurse, she had seen his work and said he was the best. From the initial consultation through to post op Howard has been absolutly fantastic. His professionalism and manner are very comforting when your about to embark on a life changing surgery. I have had twins in 2009 & was forever conscious and worried about the appearance of my stomach. Howard was great a reassuring me that the results will be great and true to his word they are fantastic. I opted to have a bit of liposuction and breast augementation to improve the overall results. Howard was happy to alleviate any concerns my husband and I had. He made it clear from the beginning that if we weren't happy with any of the results he would be happy to fix them, which is surprising really, normally Doctors expect you to be happy with the results or tough luck. I am forever greatfull for what Dr Webster has done for me I am thrilled with the results and the surgery has been life changing for me.
