5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

Breast implant removal

I had my Breast implants removed along with a total capsulectomy. Dr Rao and his surgical team were fantastic! The nursing staff was amazing. They really made me feel comfortable. They treated me like a person and not like $$signs. Both pretty and post op was very good. Dr Tao's PA was wonderful as well. I would highly recommend Dr Rao for explanation of implants!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

49 Yr Old Breast Lift Abdominal Lipo and Future Implants - Middleton, WI

I read a lot of reviews about Dr Rao. He was fantastic and I believe I will have very little scarring when it's all done. Some patients made a comment that his bedside manner was lacking, well, to be honest, I don't care if he pats me on the back and tells me "it's gonna be ok", I care about my surgery and that it is being performed by one of the best surgeons. After visiting several plastic surgeons, he was the only one who suggested getting a lift then in 12 weeks or so, doing the implants. The reason is when you do the lift then add in extra weight, it puts more of a strain on the stitches. And it didn't cost anymore than to have it done all at once. And I am giving him a 4 star on the bedside manner, he listened to everything I had to say and I couldn't be happier. And my pain has been a consistent 1 out of 10 since I left the surgery center!

5 out of 5 stars Male Tummy Tuck

41 Y/o Man with Extended Abdominoplasty After 130# Weight Loss - Madison, WI

Dr. Rao is great! His credentials are impeccable, he comes highly recommended, he is professional, doesn't waste your times and explains what the best options are and why. He always answered my questions via email quite promptly. I highly recommend him.

4 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

34K to 34FF- 3 months post op

I chose Dr. Rao because out of the five doctors at UW Health that did breast reduction, two specialize in nerve injuries as well. I figured they would have higher rates of patients retaining nipple sensation. Dr. Rao had been practicing longer out of the two, so I chose him. Maybe that's weird reasoning, but I'm o.k. with that. He was also named one of three plastic surgeons on Madison Magazine's 2012 Top Doctors list.
