5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Best Female Sugeon in the Bay Area!! - San Francisco, CA

Dr R & all her staff are very friendly, caring & they provide professional top notch excellent service. As soon as you walk in,you feel right at ease with Dr. R. I initially had my breast implants done about 14 years ago with Dr. R, but gravity has taken over & they were sagging. I booked a consult and to my surprise she remembered me & even gave me a discount for being a repeat patient! I then booked my appointment she did my breasts lift & augmentation 12/27/10. All went amazingly well I am 3 weeks post op and LOVE my new perky breast!

Totally Worth It - San Francisco, CA

Dr. Rajagopol is great and her pricing is very reasonable and transparent. For me, a female surgeon was a must, and Dr. Rajagopol made me feel very comfortable. Also, she was able to fit me in for the surgery right away. Everyone is different, but if you are considering a labiaplasty, I would recommoned that you see her for at least a consult (might be a good idea to consult with more than one doctor so you feel very comfortable with your final choice). Good luck!

Went from an A Cup to a Full C Cup W/ Saline Implants...totally Worth It!

Dr. is so caring. I felt like she genuinely cared about me from the very beginning of the consultation process to my last post-op appointment. The office and medical staff at her practice are all so helpful and friendly.

Breast Reduction in SF - San Francisco, CA

I've had a very good experience with Dr. Rajagopal. At 2 weeks, I love the results. She was available by cell phone and answered my questions post-op. I would have preferred to have been billed for whatever my insurance didn't cover, but as it was I had to pay the full cost up front, trusting that I will be reimbursed by the practice when the insurance payment arrives. I was flummoxed by the request that I bring my own sports bra to the surgical appointment -- had no idea what size to buy, of course, and the one I brought was too big and had to be packed with gauze. I think an office-supplied surgical bra would be nicer.

Best Thing I've Ever Done - San Francisco

I am 44 years old and have diligently gone to the gym for over 2 years. 3 c-sections and genetics appear to have been a huge factor in my inability to get my youthful core back. After a great deal of research, (I would recommend talking openly to other women who have experienced similar cosmetic surgery), I was ready to get lipo done w/o a tummy tuck as my fitness level is excellent...

I Wish I Had Done This Sooner - San Francisco, CA

Embarrassment and discomfort. Those were the words always associated with my extended, flappy labia. I was embarrassed in locker rooms, uncomfortable in clothes, and self-conscious with men. Every boyfriend I had, always commented on them. They thought their comments were "cute" -- I was mortified. When a girl gets undressed she shouldn't have something flapping between her legs,...

Labiaplasty Trim Method to Labia Minora, 39 Yr Old - San Francisco, CA

Dr Rajagopal and her staff were very nice and professional and put me at ease completely. 2 days post op, I got a call from her staff to make sure I was ok which was very reassuring. I highly recommend Dr Usha Rajagopal. She knows the female anatomy, performs several labiaplasty procedures a week and her staff is fantastic.

So Glad I Finally Did It! - San Francisco, CA

I had a labiaplasty done 5 months ago by Dr. Rajagopal. Here are the reasons why you should see her if you're considering this procedure: She's female. She's genuinely kind. She's affordable. Her staff is great. She listens. She's been doing this procedure since the 90's and has done hundreds of them. The woman knows what she's doing. Please don't go to a Plastic Surgeon who hasn't done many...
