Coolsculpting on Stubborn Belly Fat- 27 Y/r Female - Annandale, VA

Dr. Rao oversaw my procedure- but Mary was my service provider and she was excellent! She is a really nice lady and makes the treatment process fun! The facility took great care of me and I plan on coming here if I have any future needs. They really worked with me to make me feel comfortable with everything from- scheduling an appointment, to adjusting my pillows during treatments.

My Experiences with Dr. Rao, Et. Al. - Chevy Chase, MD

Based on the results of several procedures, Dr. Rao is a cosmetic surgeon without peer. The results are marvelous, pain and healing time minimal. Based on these outstanding results, I have recommended Dr. Rao to many friends and associates. In addition, Dr. Rao has a wonderful 'bedside manner'. He is a warm and caring physician, very empathetic. Given the pressures of a typical surgical practice, this is quite an achievement. I consider Dr. Rao a gem.

2 Brazilian Butt Lifts to Get the Body I Love - Chevy Chase, MD

I thank Dr. Rao daily whenever someone compliments me for giving me a body I can now truly love! He is great, his staff is great, everyone is very nice and accommodating. He was realistic with what I could expect and really delivered on what I was looking for. I was always more focused on the science of getting what I wanted from these procedures, but I have seen after the procedure how important the artistry is when it comes to body sculpting, and Dr. Rao is the da Vinci of BBL's! I could never thank him enough for opening my life up to such joy, so hopefully this review and the people I recommend to go to him will help.

After Breast Feeding Two Children I Am Blessed to Have my Boobs Back!! - Annandale, VA

I was a bit nervous going into my consult. Once I met with Dr. Rao and we discussed my concerns and expectations I felt good about my choice in doctors. He took my measurements and suggested my options in great detail. Needing the lift was the most important part. After we went over his method & implant sizes and I chose a standard lift with 500cc high profile implants. Day of surgery was a breeze. Once home that evening Dr. Rao and a nurse called to check on me! My post op visits have been great as well. Dr. Rao is extremely kind, patient and professional! I am 3 weeks out and already thrilled with my results!!

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

46 Year Old Mom of Two Had Medial Thigh Lift. - Fairfax, VA

What struck me first about Dr. Rao was his compassion. I shared my painful story and he really heard me, not just pretended to listen, but truly expressed a genuine concern. He looked at the scarring and immediately determined that he could help me. Not only could he help me, but he had a plan that would not leave me with misshapen labia due to possible pulling of skin reattachmen. He would do the thigh lift with the best technique of anchoring the new skin to my pelvis. I am a fairly petite person, and although I had recently lost 25 lbs, there was not a lot of excess skin to work with. And yet, he was confident he could remove all the scarring. I remember in the operating room, as they prepared to but me to sleep, he patted my arm, reassuring me, telling me not to worry, he would take good care of me. And he did! He had prepared me for a common occurrence of wound separation, but that never happened, I healed with no problems. It has been four weeks, and although I am still recovering, I am thankful every day that my life's journey brought me to Dr. Rao. He may look young, but his skill as a surgeon is undeniable. His compassion, well, that is what truly makes him an outstanding doctor and human being.
