5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

53 Years Old, 2 Children 21 & 23, Much Need Breast Reduction

Craig is a very professional and lovely man. I could honestly not have had a better experience. His skills far exceeded my expectations. The fact that I only required pain killers for the day of and day after surgery speaks volumes. Thank you again Craig for everything.

I feel amazing !

After my consultation with Dr Craig Rubinstein I knew I had found the right surgeon . From the initial consult he made me feel completely comfortable, so making the decision to have my breast reduction surgery was an easy one . Craig and his staff were absolutely amazing to say the least. It has been 10 days since my surgery and I can not believe the results already, not just in my appearance...

Getting your breast done is a big move, well to some one that was an 8A for a good 10 years and couldn't even fathom what big breasts would look like on a frame like mine. I was recommended by my close friend who recently had her BA done by Dr Rubinstein. Dr Rubinstein is absolutely lovely he makes you feel comfortable and really helps you with your decisions, he also gives his best advice on...

I got much more than I expected or ever hoped for!

Originally I came to Dr Rubinstein for a second opinion for implant removal. The original surgeon wanted to remove the implants and also do a lift & remove the capsule all in 1 surgery. I felt too traumatised by his approach, & THANK GOD found Craig, I had a hunch he would be good. I thought "there must be a better breast surgeon out there??" Well...I found one alright. Immediately...

Best Surgeon Ever!

I can not speak highly enough of Dr. Craig Rubinstein and his team. I had breast reduction surgery over 6 weeks ago and the whole experience from the first consultation to the after care was simply amazing. Craig is the best. He is absolutely professional, kind, caring and you know that you are in very good hands from the minute you step into his rooms. (Little side note: his humour is...

Thank you Craig

I could not have hoped for a better result than that which Craig delivered . After years of pain from an incorrectly placed implant and other issues, Craig corrected and performed a breast reduction and lift to my full satisfaction . The time he puts into getting it right impressed me .Minimal scarring, better physical appearance and most of all no more pain . I can recommend Craig confidently...

Asymmetrical Breasts - Now near perfect.

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...

Amazing!! Wish I hadve done it earlier!

Craig is absolutely amazing! After losing a lot of weight in my early 20's I hated my boobs. He performed a lift and implant procedure on me and I honestly have never been happier! He is so thorough is his consultations and aftercare and such a perfectionist!

The best surgeon ever! Tummy tuck, lipo and breast reduction

Thank you so very much to Craig, and the amazing team at Cosmetic Surgery for Women. I had only read wonderful reviews about Craig so I decided to go to one of the seminars. I was so impressed that before I left that night I had booked an appointment with Craig and as soon as I had finished my appointment I had booked a surgery date. I had an abdominoplasty and breast reduction performed by...
