5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

The Best in Washington - Kirkland, WA

My before and after photos explain it all. I look amazing and I am very happy with the results as well as the care and professional guidance Dr. R provides with this major decision.

The Best Thing I've Ever Done for Myself - Bellevue, WA

He is everything that you would want in a surgeon. His credentials are excellent, his work is beautiful, and his team is great. His operating facilities are very nice and you can tell that he and his staff pay attention to detail. He will make you feel comfortable and safe from start to finish. After leaving his office, I never felt bad about myself (I cannot say the same for another surgeon I visited). My results are everything I could have ever wished for. If you want the best, please choose Dr. R. Update: It has been over 5 months since my operation and my progress has made me even happier that I chose Dr. Rand. My results are beautiful and natural. My scars are tiny, faded, and you'd have to look very hard to notice them. I have no doubt that Dr. Rand's incredible skill was instrumental in creating such nice scars. If you live in the Seattle area and you want breast surgery, I would urge you to visit Dr. Rand's office. I'd love for every woman considering surgery to be as happy as I am with her results.

Definitely Worth It! - Bellevue, WA

I saw so many photo's of Dr. R's work, that I felt comfortable I would get a natural look, which was very important to me. I also have a dramatic change, which I also wanted, but it looks natural. When I got out of the operating room, the anesthesiologist told me I was going to be one of the Wow's. I knew someone who had another procedure done by Dr. R and she was 100% satisfied, so that was important to me also.

Beautiful Glorious Breasts! - Bellevue, WA

Professional but not with a 'clinical' feel. He's soft spoken and very calming. I felt comfortable and confident he knew what was best for me and was very helpful in his opinion and advice.

Excellent Care and Wonderful Results - Bellevue, WA

Dr. R was great to work with. Very understanding and he has a great 'bedside' manner. I would recommend him to anybody who was interested in plastic surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy Makeover - Bellevue

Excellent care Excellent bedside manner Wonderful work Dr. R is not only a wonderful, talented cosmetic surgeon. He truly is a one of a kind professional. Once I began seriously considering the mommy makeover, I did alot of research on the procedure, costs and the type of surgeon that I would trust to do this for me. In doing so, I was excited to find a surgeon with Dr. R's reputation and credentials near my home. Upon scheduling a consultation, I knew that I found the surgeon for me. It's very easy to fall in love with Dr. R and his staff. I was also happily surprised to find that his costs were reasonable - especially considering what he could be charging for his services.

Breast Augmentation in Bellevue, WA

There's a reason why Dr. R is chosen by his peers as a Seattle top Dr. He is a consummate professional, and working at the medical tower of Overlake Hospital gave me complete peace of mind as I decided to have the surgery. Beyond being a top surgeon, Dr. R listened to and supported me as he helped guide my choice of size and style of breast implant insuring that I would receive the natural outcome I hoped for.

4 Reasons Your Surgeon May Choose Submuscular Placement

How to Get the Best Breast Augmentation Results for Your Age

Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, and for good reason. Breast implants not only have the power to provide women across the age spectrum with beautiful breasts, but can also be a big confidence booster.
