About Dr. Usha Rajagopal

Usha Rajagopal, MD

Dr. Usha Rajagopal does not fit the bill of the traditional plastics and cosmetic surgery specialist as she has striven to build one of the most respected practices in the U.S. based on her belief in empowering her patients. From her beautiful offices in San Francisco’s Union Square, Dr. Rajagopal makes sure she is always aware of the latest technologies available to her all-female team and patients who she works with to make sure every procedure completed is needed and understood; the graduate of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center does not believe in completing procedures which are either not necessary or needed by the individual as she believes this is a major problem within the plastic surgery sector.

Before arriving in San Francisco, Usha Rajagopal began her training to embark on the medical career she believes is of the greatest importance to the empowerment of all genders with an education at respected Texan colleges. The initial steps towards becoming a respected surgeon were taken at the University of Texas and the Southwestern Medical Center where the future surgeon made her mark in receiving her M.D. Whilst studying for her M.D., Dr. Rajagopal began to feel a career in surgery was her destiny which resulted in her completing her internship and residency in the Department of Surgery at Parkland Memorial Hospital, Dallas. After spending a year as a research fellow at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center a move to San Francisco followed to accept a Fellowship in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of California at San Francisco.

Lifelong learning and self-improvement have always played a major role in the career and life of Dr. Usha Rajagopal as she has embarked on a journey to creating a practice at the San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center which she believes reflects her moral values and ethical approach to the medical industry. One of the most important parts of the work of the San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center has been the development of new techniques allied with the use of the latest technologies to ensure patients are always given the opportunity to complete their chosen surgery or non-surgical procedure in the most up to date way possible. One of the latest developments used on a regular basis by Usha Rajagopal is that of 3-D imaging and scanning allowing individuals to see the changes a procedure will have on their body prior to surgery taking place.

Dr. Rajagopal has spent a large amount of the last two decades building a surgical practice in her own image which works on behalf of patients to make sure every aspect of the procedures completed are done in an ethical and caring manner. For the surgeon, the most important aspect of her career is the development of her practice has been the need to empower patients of each gender with the opportunity to enhance their own sense of self-worth and develop a greater level of self-esteem. The environment at the San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center is just as important as the skills of Dr. Rajagopal and her team as a safe and caring atmosphere will benefit all those involved in completing surgical and non-surgical procedures. Among the specialties of Dr. Rajagopal are the breast augmentation and rhinoplasty procedures which she feels can make a great deal of difference to every aspect of the life of her patients.

As a skilled plastic surgeon, the work completed by Dr. Rajabopal at the San Francisco Plastic Surgery and Laser Center has seen her awarded with membership to some of the most prestigious medical associations in the U.S. and the world as a whole. Among the groups which have rewarded the surgeon with membership is the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, perhaps the most respected group in the world in this medical sector. Other memberships include those with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the California Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Usha Rajagopal does not believe her skills and knowledge should only be available to those in and around San Francisco who wish to take advantage of her skills; instead, she has spent a large amount of time providing her expertise to various media outlets in the bay area and across the U.S. As a writer, Dr. Rajagopal provides her expertise to Marie Claire magazine and Readers Digest. San Francisco’s most respected plastic surgeon has also appeared across a range of TV shows including the Bay area’s “Health Beat” TV show and a number of local news broadcasts in California and Texas.
