5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Absolutely AMAZING!

Craig is an absolute genius! I had a breast reduction after many years of trying to decide. Craig was to the point about results and what to expect. Very approachable and explained the surgery in simple terms. He drew diagram and explained exactly where the scars would be and healing process. I received regular calls from the clinic making sure I was ok pre surgery and if I had any questions....

Amazing results!

I am 9 days post op and couldn't be happier with my results. When researching a surgeon to perform my breast augmentation I had multiple people suggest Craig Rubinstein. After thorough researching, I had narrowed it down to two very reputable surgeons as I wanted an option in terms of which surgeon I felt most comfortable with after the consultation. My GP referred me to both surgeons and I...

Amazing surgeon

Craig performed my breast augmentation last week. I can not speak highly enough of him and his team.

His team are just as caring and professional as he is, my experience has been amazing. I have always disliked the fat...

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.

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.

Dr Rubinstein is absolutely lovely he makes you feel comfortable and really helps you with your decisions, he also gives his best advice on...
