5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift
Dr Chopra is a True Artist! All of my Results Have Exceeded my Wildest Dreams. OUTSTANDING SURGEON! - Beverly Hills, CA
Referred by Dr. Theodore Khalili from the Khalili Center for Bariatric Surgery. Dr Chopra has preformed 4 major proceedures for me, after a weight loss of over 100 pounds.ounds. His approach is professional, serious, somewhat conservative and thorough. He studies, sculpts and molds your body as a whole and the areas to work on specifically, with the eye of a true artist. We collaborated from the first meeting. He listened to me & I listened to him. All of my results have so completely exceeded my wildest dreams of what was possible. Dr. Chopra gave me the body I always dreamed of but could never imagine actually having. He gave me the LIFE I always dreamed of. I only wish I hadn't waited so long to do it. Thank You Dr. Chopra!
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Dr. Chopra is in a league of his own. He is talented, professional and simply the only option for plastic surgery. Period.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr. Chopra and his staff were incredible. They calmed my nerves. After surgery, they were attentive and even came in on the weekend when I was having pain issues. Dr. Chopra's bedside manner is above and beyond. One thing I truly like about Dr. Chopra is his bedside manner and attentiveness. He answers questions (no matter how stupid they are) and even gave his cell phone number to me in case I had any issues once I moved back to D.C. Another thing I really truly appreciate is Dr. Chopra's honesty. He explains things in detail and doesn't sugar coat the healing process... yet he assures you that he will help you through the process as much as possible. I am only five weeks out of surgery and still swollen... even so, I can say with certainty that Dr. Chopra is an artist with his scalpel. His work is beyond belief and far better than I ever imagined.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
Referred from another patient. After visiting several clinics and talking to doctors I decided on the Plastic Surgery Institute. The location was discreet, the office staff were friendly and efficient and Rob, the PA, was professional and informative. The bedside manner of Ritu and Rob immediately put me at ease and I was able to ask questions and express concerns. Dr. Chopra gave me his opinion, but always made it clear that it was my decision. The operating room was clean and comfortable and the operating team made me feel relaxed with their repertoire and experienced hands. I love the results and highly recommend Dr. Chopra and staff.
Dr. Chopra was very informative, knowledgeable, and made me feel very comfortable with the procedure. Every question I had he answered clearly and without a doubt. I was initially very worried about getting the surgery but after speaking to him I felt very comfortable and knew he would do an amazing job. As a result, yayyyy it turned out perfect!!! I am so happy and would recommend him to all my friends! Thank you Dr. Chopra!!!!!
5 out of 5 stars Male Tummy Tuck
I'm 25 yrs old and live in Las Vegas. So about 6 and a half years ago I weighted 453 lbs. I decided it was time to lose the weight, so at the age of 19 I decided to get the Lap-Band surgery. In the beginning the weight was just melting off of me. I got down to about 260 lbs and stopped losing weight. At that time I was pretty comfortable with that weight. The problem was that I didn't really...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
Choosing the Best doctor I could have found, making the choice to have a breast augmentation was one of the best decisions I made for myself. Dr. Ritu Chopra was very professional, welcoming and approachable. I always felt more than comfortable in his office. His staff was so accommodating and all of my questions were answered immediatley! I didn't really know what I wanted, I explained to Dr...
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Dr. Chopra was very personable and friendly. I felt at ease when he understood and addressed my concerns. He was able to provide me with before and after photos of previous patients as well as photos of the expected results for my surgery. Above all else, I appreciated his honesty.
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Made me feel at ease and was very professional. He even visited me at the aftercare facility that evening to check in on me. Dr. Chopra gave me his personal email and his staff cell phone in case I needed anything which made me feel safe and cared about.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
I am so extremely grateful to have met Dr. Ritu Chopra and feel blessed to have him care for me during this difficult time. After making the hard decision to have a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis coupled with strong family history, I began the daunting task of choosing a surgeon to entrust with my treatment. I never planned on having surgery outside of my hometown,...

When people talk about implants and plastic surgery, breast implants come to mind. But there are a lot of other types of plastic surgery implants. We uses them from head to toe, and some of them are even more popular than breast implants. But often not as apparent. Often breast implants are “out there” and on display for everyone to see. Some patients are so happy and proud of them that they speak of them often. But other implants are rarely conspicuous. In fact, the more natural and...
Skin cancer is a fact of life, for those who have had any fun outdoors. For many people with a history of sun exposure and fair skin, it’s not a question of if, but when. So let’s talk about what happens when you have skin cancer. Many of our patients have noticed a changing mole, a non-healing area or a chronic bleeding spot and presented to the dermatologist. A small sample of the tissue was then removed and sent to a pathologist for a diagnosis. The diagnosis is cancer...
“Doctor, make me beautiful”, said the 15 year old. An alarming trend in the United States is the increase in teenage plastic surgery. It has always seemed like children are in a rush to grow up. They have role models that they “grow up” with, young actors and singers featured in movies and regular television shows. Some of these young stars have best selling (or downloaded) records on the pop charts. These fast living “beautiful people” are roll models, whether they...
Doctor, make me beautiful. NOW! Immediate gratification is very, well, gratifying! We, in plastic surgery are always leaving our mark on people’s faces, feelings and psyches. Sometimes in big ways, sometimes in minute ways. Sometimes it happens fast, more often it’s gradual. It’s a lot of pressure, but along with that responsibility comes great rewards. We love fixing things. Removing a defect. Erasing an unwanted fold, line or crinkle. And when we can do that instantaneously, all...
