5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

I had a great experience!

I had a very good experience. He was very professional and very caring. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is considering plastic surgery. I had a breast reduction with a let and abdominalplasty.

Pleased with my results, Amazed & impressed by the doctor

I had been on the fence regarding liposuction versus a tummy tuck for the last several years. After my consultation with Dr. Rao, I booked my procedure almost immediately. He made me feel completely comfortable with my decision and, rather than pushing the more expensive tummy tuck, he favored a more modest approach that would ultimately give me the same outcome with less pain and downtime. ...

He's the best!

At 43 years old, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2014, and I had a bi-lateral mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction in May 2014. I initially choose breast implants as my reconstruction method, but my body rejected the tissue expanders (twice). The second time my body rejected the tissue expanders, I developed a horrible infection (in my breast area) and I bled so much I...

Mommy Makeover in 3 Days

Hi everyone! So my mommy makeover is in 3 days and I'm so up and down with emotion. I was super excited just a few hours ago and now I'm totally freaked out! I'm not sure I'm doing the right thing :-( I've never been put under for a surgery and this alone has me freaked out. Im scared I won't wake up. I have 2 small kids (6 & 3) and I know this is elective but I'm scared I may leave...

Having to give up your breasts at age 40 wasn't something I ever imagined, but...

Excellent Surgeon!

Dr. Rao was an excellent surgeon for my breast reduction procedure. I wanted this procedure to essentially get out of upper back pain. I never imagine that I'd love the results like I do! My breasts look great and youthful and are no longer causing any back pain. Dr. Rao and his staff are very responsive to all inquiries prior to surgery and after. Everyone on the team treated me with...

I had a great experience - Chevy Chase, MD

Dr. Rao is a very talented plastic surgeon. He assured me that everything would be good. He not only did a great job but also the scars are hardly noticeable. I would recommend Dr. Rao to anyone anytime.

Breast Reconstruction After Bilateral Mastectomy - Fairfax, VA

From the minute I walked into the office of Dr. Rao, I knew I had made the right decision. The office was bright and cheerful and the staff was friendly and welcoming. Dr. Rao immediately made me comfortable. He talked through the entire process with me and made sure I understood what was going to happen during my reconstruction. He made me laugh during a time that I was not very cheerful...
