plastic surgeons are not magicians. sadly, i learned this the difficult way. i underwent a procedure by Dr. Rai & had some imperfections that I later went to correct by a different surgeon. I very much regret my later decision. Dr. Rai was very knowledgeable and realistic about what I could expect. He might not give you what you want to hear, but he is an artist and can give you as close a look to natural as possible.
