I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Ran Rubinstein. He is not only a talented and meticulous plastic surgeon, he also make it a point to get to know his patients and to follow their course of treatments in other medical areas. For me, that meant listening to and assessing my treatments for recurring oral cancer. Over a course of year. I had multiple surgeries to remove tumors, lesion and ultimate lymph nodes. When the lead surgeon on my oncological team gave me the go ahead plastic surgery. Dr. Rubinstein agreed to do the work. I later learned from members of my team at Dana-Farber/Harvard Medical that a lot of plastic surgeons would not have taken on the challenge. I say “challenge” because a surgery on one side of my neck had resulted in the removal of lymph nodes, fat and tissue. During the healing process, a facial nerve had become entangled.
The tricky task of untangling the nerve and lifting my lower face took over seven hours. The outcome was far better than I had hopped. Not only had Dr. Rubinstein markedly improved the appearance of my face. He also had pulled up long neck scar to below my chin so that barely be seen. His surgery left no marks. The laser treatment that went hand in hand with the surgery also no scars.
Preparation for the surgery involved Sculptra treatment to fill in the hollows of my face, a natural part of aging. It also entailed injection of Juvederm to my thinning lips again a result of aging and injection of Botox around my eyes. All treatment were successful.
I have since have laser facials and Juvederm injections all positive. I recently had after two years, a Sculptra “touch up.” It produced good results very quickly. Minimal discomfort was involved. In the days following the Sculptra treatment, people remarked that I looked healthy. After fighting cancer for years, this is one of the best things this cancer survivor can hear. This Sculptra treatment all with all treatments have looked natural, which is what I sought. I highly recommend Dr. Rubinstein for any of the cosmetic techniques that he offers.
