Raja Nalluri brings more than 18 years of experience and advanced technology to his new La Jolla practice

He may be a fresh face in San Diego, but Dr. Raja Nalluri is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has treated more than 12,000 patients thoroughout his career. We’re excited that Dr. Nalluri moved the Nalluri Plastic Surgery & Laser Center to La Jolla earlier this year, and we’re honored to introduce him to you.

About the doctor: First, welcome! Can you tell us what you enjoy about your career in plastic surgery? RN: I chose the field of plastic surgery while exploring specialties as a student at Case Western Reserve University and continue to be fascinated with the field. As a plastic surgeon, I work with a patient to achieve goals they can actually see. Amazing transformations are possible, and I feel rewarded when I see how happy my patients are with the results. What’s more, these transformations aren’t just physical. Patients leave my office feeling happier and more self-confident.

About the practice: What kinds of surgery and laser treatments does Nalluri Plastic Surgery & Laser Center provide? RN: Beyond traditional plastic surgery treatments for the face and body, we offer a wide variety of less invasive treatments including advanced laser treatments, TightSculpting and CoolSculpting, treatments that can tighten skin and spot reduce fat, as well as laser treatments for snoring, feminine rejuvenation, acne, scarring, wrinkles, cellulite, and more. These newer therapies are producing wonderful results for both women and men who want to tighten the skin around their eyes, minimize the look of a double chin, or melt away stubborn mid-section love handles. Laser treatments are considerably less expensive, require less recovery time, have fewer risks, and are less painful than traditional surgery. Advanced laser technologies incorporate a new generation of lasers and blend a couple of different natural light-based treatments with nothing artificial to produce beautiful, lasting results. The laser therapy treats the collagen under the surface and the skin surface above, which results in tighter, firmer skin. Some people even see results after one treatment. A blend of laser technologies is used to tighten skin and melt fat at the waist, tummy, arms, and other areas.


About patient care: What can we expect on our first office visit? RN: We focus on concierge patient care. I personally perform all surgeries and procedures. Initial consultations are complimentary, and patients are welcome to make an appointment at the center, which is open and adheres to safety protocols, or a Televisit appointment via smartphone. I’m looking forward to meeting my new neighbors!
