Dr. Rob Backstein is a masterful surgeon. He knows how to give the most painless needle I've ever had and being a diabetic I've had hundreds. Defintely recommended for any plastic surgery needs.

Dr. Robert Backstein botched my minimally invasive gynecomastia surgery very badly. The damage/irregularities he caused to my chest are permanent and will cost me $21,000.00 to just try to improve the look and the success of the revision surgery is of low probability. My chest muscles still hurt two years post surgery. He failed to remove my gland on the right side, didn't mark my body with a pen or go over the surgical plan with me. He liposuctioned all the way to my clavicle, armpit, edge of pec muscle and front shoulder. He did this more aggressively on the left side causing very noticeable asymmetry. I lost a good amount of muscle strength in my left pec muscle and front shoulder. The total amount of fat suctioned from both sides of my entire chest area was only 50 milliliters (10 teaspoons). If you google image search liposuction canister you will see fat floats to the top of the canister where it is measured everything else sinks. This fool scraped away type II muscle, fascia and important connective tissue.. Do not fall for his superficial charm, he is a malicious monster. After he has your money he will do whatever he wants to you. I made it clear what I wanted done and he did the exact opposite without my consent. Liposuction was only supposed to be done if there was unevenness after taking the glands out to feather the area around the nipples (not my entire chest). Humber River Hospital the hospital I had my surgery in didn't even have any pre-op rooms available; from the waiting area I was brought right into the operating room, disrobed and told to wait for Dr. Backstein to arrive.
It was awkward standing there watching the nurses and anesthesiologist prepare for my surgery. When he arrived he only took a couple of poorly done photographs of my chest at extreme close ups and no photographs were taken from the sides, arms raised, arms behind back or flexing before putting me under the knife. He also lied to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and told them that he had marked me while I was awake and standing. When I made my complaint against him to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario they didn't even interview the nurses and anesthesiologist to ask them if they remembered me being marked up. Soon after when I told him I was going to sue he took down his website called Cosmetic Surgery Toronto and redirected all his visitors to his new site called The Centre for Minor Surgery. On his Cosmetic Surgery Toronto website Dr. Robert Backstein stated he was a fully qualified Toronto board certified plastic surgeon. Very soon I will have my website open to the public. There you will be able to read my College of Physician and Surgeons of Ontario complaint, see pictures of my botched chest and listen to all recorded conversations I had with Dr. Robert Backstein. Like the other reviewer said "if you could see what he has done to me you would never hire him, NEVER"

I had a tummy tuck done on May 4th 2012 performed by Dr. Backstein. Dr.Backstein is a fabulous doctor! He's very patient, explanatory and caring, his staff's are great and friendly, Suzie, thumbs up to you girl! I am healing quite well, my cut from hip to hip was done perfect! very neatly done and very low which I like. I am very happy with his work. I would recommend Dr. Backstein to anyone and his prices are phenomenal! Anyone who chooses Dr.Backstein to perform any cosmetic work, you will have no regrets, he's a marvelous doctor. Thanks again Dr.Backstein, keep up the great work!

Dr. Backstein is a great plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery specialist. He did my wife's breast augmentation and although she doesn't post ratings, I feel I must. Dr. B did a truly magnificent job on what appeared to me to be a difficult siutuation after a botched previous surgery done south of the border. I recommend Dr. Backstein for sure. The "UNETHICAL" statement below also couldn't be farther from the truth and that person should spend less time with a plastic surgeo and more time having their head examined.

Dr. Backstein did my lift and tummy tuck. Experience was wonderful. Dr. Backstein did a great job and was accessible. My recovery was smooth and the Dr, was willing to ressure me when waiting for the breasts to take their shape. Now that all is healed I'm extremely pleased!

I had a breast augmentation and tummy tuck by Dr Backstein. He did a wonderful job and my results are outstanding. He is a kind caring doctor and his prices are reasonable. I recommend him to everyone.
