    As a woman with SMA Type 2 Muscular Dystrophy undergoing breast augmentation is something of a challenge for any Surgeon. Dr. Rai had the skill, compassion and courage needed to successfully perform breast implant under the muscle for me. I am most grateful to Dr. Rai and his team for sticking through this together <3

    I had my breast augmentation done a few months ago and I am so happy with the results.. I went from barely an A cup to a small D with saline filled implants and they look and feel great! I would definitely recommend Doctor Rai!

    I had a breast augmentation done last October by Dr. Rai and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. Super nice guy, I had a great experience. Every time I called to speak with him personally, he called right away. My new breasts look spectacular and am planning to have more cosmetic surgery and Dr. Rai has my confidence. Word of caution when choosing implants, if you are going over the muscle and use saline, you are bound to have problems and blaming the surgeon for your choice is futile. Saline implants are a waste of money problems associated with it. don’t do it. Go for Gels, I went for high profile 700cc and they still look very natural. I’m excited and can’t wait for my facelift which will be performed by Dr. Rai.
