According to “Women in Medicine” (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_medicine), “. . . the practice of medicine remains disproportionately male overall.” In recent years more and more women are attending medical school and earning medical degrees, yet, only about 10% of all board certified plastic surgeons are female – which does not correspond with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) findings that around 92% of cosmetic surgeries are performed on women.
The “Women in Medicine” article goes on to describe how some medical specialties, such as surgery, are even more male dominated. With so many females seeking plastic surgeons, and so few female plastic surgeons out there, it can be extremely difficult for prospective patients to find what they are looking for. Fortunately, patients seeking an exemplary female plastic surgeon with a woman’s sensitivity and insight will be pleased to have found Dr. Usha Rajagopal.
Dr. Usha received excellent medical education and training. She graduated in the top 10% of her class from Southwestern Medical School at Dallas. Then, she did her surgical residency at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, later receiving a fellowship in plastic surgery from the University of California at San Francisco.
Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Usha Rajagopal is the director of the San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. With more than twenty years of experience, she specializes in cosmetic surgery with an emphases in body contouring, breast augmentation, and facial surgery. She also offers a wide range of cosmetic dermatological procedures at her San Francisco practice.
Dr. Rajagopal is considered by many to be a highly compassionate person. Taking a lot of pride in her work and wanting to make sure each of her patients are happy, Dr. Usha Rajagopal reviews each patients’ needs with sensitivity. She is also involved in community outreach and philanthropy. She supports the following concerns through generous donations: Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which supports the fight against breast cancer; PRASAD, which offers programs in education, health, and sustainable community development in India, and which also offers dental care in the U.S. and eye care in Mexico; the Boys and Girls Clubs of America; and San Francisco’s schools.
Dr. Usha’s patients have been quite pleased both by her treatment of them as people and by her skill as a plastic surgeon. Perhaps it’s the extra care and time she puts into each patient’s case, or her female sensitivity. Whatever it be, she won the Patients’ Choice Award of 2012 and has received overwhelmingly positive reviews from her patients.
