5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
Dr R takes the time to explain all aspects of your surgery from start to finish. Excellent surgical/artistic skills. I highly recommend
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift
Dr. R is not only a top notch plastic surgeon, he is an artist. He one of the most compassionate physicians I have ever known. He is also passionate about his work.
5 out of 5 stars Facelift
Two years ago, before I met Dr R, I had a mastectomy with the amazing team at Johns Hopkins. The cosmetic results were the stuff of dreams -- MUCH better breasts than I had before! The overall experience was so fantastic that I asked my plastic surgeon to give me a face lift. He told me the best person to help me freshen up my looks was Dr R. Dr R listened to me really carefully at every step of the process, and gave me exactly what I wanted. He was attentive and really supportive, answering endless questions and giving me as much (or as little) explanation as I wanted. Like the other doctors I've known at Hopkins, he's not just a great doctor but also a real person, with good people-skills and a commitment to his patients. He made me feel beautiful. My breast cancer days are behind me. I have a whole new lease on life, and a whole new healthy and fresh look as I head into my future. I can't recommend him highly enough.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
Dr. R, Johns Hopkins Hospital, was exceptional in every way. Surgically – I have been nothing but thrilled with all aspects of my process. Beginning with my initial consult, the bilateral mastectomies, the optimal care of my expanders, and now my reconstruction surgery, I have been so emotionally strong and well through the entire experience. But more than that, Dr. R has been the utmost in professional, courteous and kind to every one of my family and friends. My two teenage sons and my husband, and my “Team of Advocates” who marched through this process at my side, were always welcome to voice their concerns or anxieties. Dr. R was ALWAYS accessible and responsive to my “teams” needs. It doesn’t get much better than that.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
I found Dr. R to be extraordinarily responsive, replying to emails promptly with thorough explanations, and in office visits, spending as much time with me as my frequently long lists of questions required. I rarely felt hurried.
Hi Awesome People, I made this post in the Implant removal section as well because I want to try and help people going through either of these procedures. The site has been a huge help to me. I am scheduled to have my 12 year old 350cc implants removed, with a small amount of fat grafting to the chest wall to address my concern of being completely flat above the breast tissue. I figured...
Hi Awesome People, I am scheduled to have my 12 year old 350cc implants removed, with a small amount of fat grafting to the chest wall to address my concern of being completely flat above the breast tissue. I figured since he was pulling fat out we could just do the liposuction. I used to be in the gym every day. My mother passed unexpectedly last year and everything kind of got out of...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
I'm honored to write this review for Dr. Ariel Rad. I found Dr. Rad by a review just like the one I want to share with you today. My hope is it will convey what a first-class doctor he is! My initial meeting with Dr. Rad in May 2012 was serendipitous. Already knowing his considerable qualifications and his exceptional reputation at Johns Hopkins, I went to the appointment simply curious about...
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
Dr. Rad is an extraordinary physician and his medical practice, in all aspects that I experienced, is superb. I came to Dr. Rad to talk about a problem area that for my entire life no amount of diet/exercise has been able to address (I am in my late 40s and in excellent shape otherwise). I also came to him very leery about surgery. After a consultation -- during which Dr. Rad was kind and...
