    I had rhinoplasty with dr. Rai on May 14 to try and correct breathing problems and a bump on my nose. Right from the beginning he was honest with me about the fact that the surgery may not correct my breathing problem as I had surgery in 2009 with another doctor and it did not work. As soon as I had the packing removed I could already feel my breathing was better. He was so gentle with my surgery that after two weeks my bruising and swelling was almost nonexistent and my nose was beautiful. I told him I didn’t want a very obvious nose change and he made it perfect. I would 100 percent recommend dr. Rai for rhinoplasty but hurry up because he is set to retire next year.

    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.
