Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

After having 2 kids my body was not the same and I decided to have the surgery before I turned 40 years old. Everytime I saw myself at the mirror I was feeling discomfort from the extra skin left over from my pregnacy.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

Honestly, I didn't consider the opinion of my friends. It was a decision that I made and my husband really supported me from the beginning up until my procedure. Now he is very happy!

How did 1800MySurgeon help you through the process of finding a qualified plastic surgeon?

I contacted 1800mySurgeon to get some credentials and check the background of another doctor. He turned out not to be Board-Certified, so 1800mySurgeon recommended that I see Dr. Rubinstein. I went to see Dr. Rubinstein for a consultation and it really was a very good decision to see him.

Can you describe your surgery and recovery?

My recovery is excellent! I was able to walk the next day after the surgery and its been almost a week now and I feel SUPER!!! Today was my follow-up with Dr. Rubinstein and even he was surprised about my recovery.

What advice would you give to another person considering your same procedure?

I totally and highly recommend Dr. Rubinstein. He takes his time with every one of his patients and is a very detailed person. You will really love him.

How do you feel about your result?

About my result, I am very, very happy! Dr. Rubinstein did a GREAT job! Honestly I am very happy that I decided to do the surgery with him. If in the future I decide to do any other procedure, I will definitely go with him again. His staff is also very nice - I was given personal attention. Thank you Dr. Rubinstein!
