Breast augmentation with lift 300 cc high profile - My stats 5'4, 132 lbs and after having my son a year ago and breast feeding for 5-6 months I completely lost any all volume. I did a lot, a lot of research, I live up in Phoenix and I was getting quoted 11-15k for this procedure, personally money isn't too much of an issue but for someone who never wanted implants to begin with prior my baby ruining them lol the price was still absurd, I...

5’11-150-450cc-silicone gel-under muscle - 30 year old mama of two! Breastfeeding/pregnancy didn’t change my boobs too much. They’ve pretty much been this size always. Never felt very womanly or like they are proportionate to my body (tall/wide hips). Worried I’m going too small with 425. Id rather be too big than too small since I already know what being too small feels like. I also don’t want them to be too big for my body that th... More

Why look at the rest, when I have found the best! - I don't think 5 stars is enough to rate Dr. Rao and his staff. After losing weight I had/have that wonderful "loose skin". My insurance covered the excess skin on my abdominal area. I'm 2 months post op on this surgery and am VERY happy! Next month I am having my "bat wings/loose arm skin" removed. This is how much I trust Dr. Rao. During my first visit, he listened. He heard what I... More

I loved Doctor Rao and staff! They are the best!Doctor Rao is very professional and knowledgeable I highly recommend him!! - I had a breast augmentation with areola reduction and I am more than happy with results. I went into consultation only wanting to add fullness to my breast and Dc Rao recommended adding the areola reduction to make my breast look nicer. This meant alot to me because it showed me how he truly wanted to make my breast look their best. Everything went so smoothly and he made me feel very... More

Talented and kind surgeon - Dr. Rao is incredibly kind and friendly. I felt very secure in my choice for a Tummy tuck with him. He answered all my questions and the ones I didn't know I had. He eases worries without making you feel silly. His staff is wonderful and went above and beyond to arrange a surgery date that would work with my crazy schedule. I often have to bring my son with for my follow ups and they are all... More

I have a perfect nose! - AMAZING!! I went in to see Dr. Rao for a consultation for a nose job and I was excited that he and his staff were able to get me a reasonable quote and surgery date so quickly! I had the hump removed from my nose and it made such a big difference. He did an amazing job and his staff made sure to help me through the entire process. I highly recommend Dr. Rao!! More

CoolSculpting is easier than and less painful than originally thought - Dr. Rao and staff are amazing!! Decided to try CoolSculpting since there was NO downtime or anesthesia involved. Best decision was having a Board Certified Physician see me as he gave me all options. Dr. had amazing bed side manner which flowed onto the staff as well. I have recommended Dr. Rao to all my family and friends! More

27 YO Mother of 1 Breast Augmentation & Lip Injections - Tucson, AZ - After many weeks of gathering information and interviewing doctors for a breast augmentation, I decided last minute to go with Dr. Rao. I initially was going to travel to Mexico but that quickly changed, then I had an appointment in Scottsdale with a Dr who I won't say but had a horrible experience which led me to Dr. Rao. I had the most amazing experience from the very moment I called his... More

Very Large Breasted and Suffering with Constant Back Pain and Severe Migraine Headaches - Tucson, AZ - I was so tired of my back hurting all of the time and keeping me from participating in activities with my family and friends. I suffered from severe migraine headaches as well and averaged at least 3 per week. The headaches caused me to be even more separated from my family and friends. When I walked out to my car after the surgery, I noticed that my back was not hurting. Throughout the time... More

55 Yrs Old, 5'7', 185 Lbs. Five Breastfed Children. I Wanted to Look Better in my Skin After Tummy Tuck - Tucson, AZ - I had a tummy tuck in June 2015. I originally sought the plastic surgeon for a breast lift as my primary fix. They convinced me to do the tummy tuck first because my insurance would pay for that portion since I had just lost 90 pounds. I paid for the muscles to be done too. That abdominoplasty was done in June 2015. The doctor didn't want to do the breast lift at the same time, so we waited.... More

Breast Reduction....Finally! - Tucson, AZ - Thought about it for years before finally doing it-that's my only regret! If I had met Dr. Rao sooner I would not have waited.

I would highly recommend Dr. Rao and his excellent staff if you are considering a breast reduction...don't let any more... More

Trying to Look Younger for my High School Reunion - Tucson, AZ - I wanted to look younger for my upcoming high school reunion. I was not happy with how my face was looking so old. My wrinkles and lines made me look at least 10 years older. I was scared of looking like I had a lot of work done when I went to my reunion. I wanted to look natural and for someone who had not seen me in years to think I just look good for my age. More
