I went to Dr. Richard Rand in 2004 for my first breast lift, on the advice of a friend who had had augmentation implants done by him just a few months earlier. She was happy. So I met with him as well as another plastic surgeon just for comparison.
Dr. Rand definitely had a wonderful "bedside manner." He was ever so attentive and gave me a good explanation of the procedure and his special... more
I wish I had the before picture but I threw it away because they looked so awful. After breastfeeding 3 children, Dr. Rand was able to lift my breasts around the nipple and reduce the areola size too.

Although I was successful scholastically, worked out and ate correctly, volunteered my free time to good causes, and had a job that I loved, I still felt as though I was not enough. I had not been fully... more
I was extremely satisfied with my Mastopexy. I shopped around the area to find a surgeon to perform the surgery. This surgeon out ranked all the others. He provided superior pre-op and post-op consultion. The surgeon and his surgery team were gentle, kind and caring. The whole process went smoothly. The surgery had minimal scaring, eliminated my back problems and boosted my self esteem. more
