5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

33, 2 Kids - Hawthorn, AU

Mr Webster was always polite, professional, and made me feel comfortable at the very first appointment. He answered all questions I had and never gave the impression he was "busy" or thinking of his next appointment. Very happy with my results! Excellent recovery and suture line is barely visible. Returned to work one week after surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Repair of Abdominal Muscles Separation Resulting from Three Pregnancies - Victoria, AU

Howard listens without judgement, cares about your concerns, is kind and approachable.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

50 Year Old in Need of a Tweek - Hawthorn, AU

I have some medical issues and Dr Webster was the only surgeon I saw that fully investigated this matter. He was honest, in that he may not have proceeded with my surgery - a reflection in my book of his professionalism and that my health was of the upmost importance. I did not get this reassurance when visiting other surgeons.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Implants Removed After Almost 30 Years. Melbourne, AU

best surgeon I've ever met. kind and thoughtful and very very good at his work

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

26 Year Old, Rhinoplasty - Melbourne, AU

I had been researching Rhinoplasty on and off for a few years, it had been something I thought about most of my life. After booking appointments at different clinics and having no luck in having the ‘it’s right’ feeling, I found Howard and booked a consult. After my first consultation I instantly knew I wanted him to do my surgery. I explained what I wanted and he showed me some of his work ...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

56 Year Old Very Heavy Droopy Breasts. Melbourne, AU

On initial consultation I was very nervous and embarrassed . I found Howard very Personable, Professional and easy to speak with. Every aspect of the Surgery I was requesting was completely explained. I felt very confident in Howard's ability as my Surgeon from the first consultation. He has a gentle manner - Plenty of time to listen ( I never felt rushed) at consultations. I chose Cosmetic Surgeon Howard Webster for his extensive Surgical experience in this area - an added bonus - Mr Webster was now consulting in Albury (as I live in the local area) This was a huge advantage in regard to both pre and post op consultations, and very assistive to the country area. Howard said to me "This will change your life'. and it has done just that. I am a real person and I placed my Surgery in the hands of some one who I would highly recommend. I truly could not fault any area of Service and communication with my Surgical experience.

5 out of 5 stars Lower Face Lift

64 Years Old and Feel 20 Years Younger - Melbourne, AU

After a quick recovery from my recent cosmetic surgery of four facial and neck procedures I am over the moon with my new look. I am so glad I chose Dr. Howard Webster as I would not hesitate in highly recommending him as he is a brilliant, caring and talented surgeon in his field.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Hi all updated new pictures after a long time I'm feeling great !!!!

All I can say about Dr Webster is he is the best surgeon in melboure so solved down to earth , easy to approach and full of knowledge . He is so sort out surgeon as in for example when he was marking me just before my surgery he saw me and without me asking him but of course by telling me that he should do bit of lipo on my sides of thighs so that when I have my final out come I should not be out of proportion , I mean who can ask more than this . He is a wonderful person very calm and relaxed I always felt so much ease with him . He did wonderful job I have great scar perfect navel infact better than before lol very need job you can see in my picture . Wonderful after care and trust me I can go on and on and on I just love him god bless him for giving me my amazing results . His staff is as good as he is every one all nurses Tracy his secretary so quick on replying back on calls or mail . Well done guys you all are doing superb job bless you all and thank you so so much .

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Neck Lift and Lower Face Lift - Melbourne, AU

I am delighted with the results of my procedure. Having been referred by my GP I was confident from the outset and was not disappointed. My surgery was uneventful, my recovery better than expected and I quickly returned to work looking and feeling fantastic. I would have no hesitation in recommending Howard to others and I must add that his staff are very pleasant too.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck and Stitched Abs - Melbourne, AU

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!!!!
