Interview: Dr. Arun Rao (Tucson, AZ)

Today I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Arun Rao of Rao Plastic Surgery in Tucson, Arizona. Dr. Rao is one of those people who will immediately strike you as gentle and kind. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the time I’ve spent speaking with him, and I can’t wait for you to have the same experience as well!

Let’s talk about what you can expect to experience at Dr. Rao’s practice! Over and over, Dr. Rao talked about how important it is to him that you feel comfortable and confident about every step of your breast augmentation. He feels it’s important to really get to know you and also for you to get to know him!

You can expect Dr. Rao to explain each step of the breast implants procedure in detail, and he will often stop to see if you have any questions during his explanations. He also finds that it helps when he tells stories of his past patient’s experiences. The more you know, the less fear you will have going through the whole experience!

Dr. Rao was drawn to plastic surgery for a lot of reasons, including getting to build personal relationships with his patients. Personally, I’m always fascinated to know why (and how!) plastic surgeons choose their profession. Dr. Rao was influence by his dad who is a Cardiothoracic surgeon but was never pushed into the profession. His dad both inspired and supported his ambition to become a surgeon 🙂

To wrap us up, I asked Dr. Rao if he had any last pieces of advice for women considering a breast augmentation (that’s you!) Dr. Rao wants to encourage you to talk about it with people and gather as much information as you can. He said that consultations are a great way to ask questions, so be open about any hesitations to be sure you’re making the best decision for you. You should also never feel like your surgeon is trying to talk his patient into a procedure that you don’t feel comfortable with (which Dr. Rao refuses to do!) And finally, take a look at the staff. They should make you feel welcomed and comfortable as well.
