A Background in the Arts

Facial plastic surgery is the marriage of art and science. A talented plastic surgeon must have both a knowledge of facial anatomy and biology and a deep appreciation and understanding of aesthetic principles. 

From a young age, Dr. Rubinstein has been an artist and sculptor. Through his early schooling at the Waldorf School, he had exposure to music, art, creativity and language learning. 

Dr. Rubenstein is a very gifted surgeon. Truly an artist, he studies your facial features and makes recommendations. He focuses on a completely natural look, not overdone. He is the only one I would trust with cosmetic procedures. His office runs like a well oiled machine. The staff is efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Specialists for all your cosmetic needs.

I came here awhile ago because my friend had recommended it to me. And I’m so glad that they did! The staff are so friendly and welcoming. They really make you feel comfortable and address all your needs. Dr. Rubinstein is so talented and I’m absolutely in love with my filler and Botox results! So natural and real looking. Before getting filler I was afraid of looking over filled or fake. But Dr. Rubinstein is an artist in his craft and I would definitely recommend. Such a great experience.

Dr. Rubinstein is extremely talented. He is truly an artist. I feel so thankful that he was able to schedule me in this past July 8th. I had a chin augmentation due to my lack of chin and a closed rhinoplasty. I’m pretty convinced that Dr. Rubinstein is closely related to Michelangelo. His talent and skill is worth every penny that I paid. I’m extremely happy with the results and the pain was extremely tolerable. It really wasn’t too bad at all. Who would have thought that a nose job wouldn’t hurt? I just felt congested. Anyway if you’re thinking of getting any work done, I highly recommend him. You won’t be disappointed. I can assure you of that.

The Waldorf School

A Waldorf education is based on the teachings and principles of Rudolf Steiner, an artist and scientist. 

Education in the Waldorf School is holistic and designed to address a growing child’s needs. It develops children’s practical, artistic and intellectual skills, emphasizing creativity and imagination. The method integrates qualitative assessments into daily classroom life and minimizes standardized testing until a student is about to enter post-secondary education.

Experience is at the heart of a Waldorf education. As a student, Dr. Rubinstein was encouraged to cultivate his emotional, artistic and intellectual capacities to discover his path and find a way to serve the world.

Like many Waldorf graduates, Dr. Rubinstein is a leader in his field. His early educational foundation has allowed him to work passionately toward his goals and take the initiative as a surgeon and educator. 

Further Education

His Waldorf education was just the beginning for Dr. Rubinstein. Becoming a facial plastic surgeon involved years of rigorous training and specialized education. 

After earning his bachelor’s degree in biology at SUNY Binghamton & Yeshiva College, he enrolled in the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he received his medical degree. He also received a Distinction in Otolaryngology Research while a medical student. 

He then became a otolaryngology/head and neck surgery resident at the University of Medicine and Dentistry at New Jersey – New Jersey Medical School.  It was during his residency that Dr. Rubinstein gained exposure to facial plastic surgery and finally found his calling. 

From there, he began a fellowship at the University of South Florida in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, under the direction of Dr. Richard T. Farrior and Dr. Edward Farrior.
