    About

    Senior Consultant Plastic Surgeon, in the NHS and the private sector (Central London and Beckenham, Kent).

    Mr Ragoowansi is particularly renowned for his breast aesthetic work, especially his ability to preserve nipple sensation following breast uplift and reduction with delicate, microsurgical techniques. He uses the latest and most innovative 3D imaging and implant technology to tailor the process to the needs of each individual patient. He is also well known for his post-weight loss body contouring and post-pregnancy body reshaping with liposculpture to restore youthful vigour following child-bearing and breastfeeding.

    He is known for his polite, professional bedside manner as well as being pedantic and particular about measurements. He combines his attention to detail, including thorough pre and post-op measurements with contemporary techniques, with an emphasis on leaving minimal, hidden scars.  

    Mr Ragoowansi studied at St Thomas', London with further training in Plastic Surgery completed at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Specialist training in breast aesthetics and volumisation and body contouring was gained in London, Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro.

    He is one of the most respected specialists in his field, regularly being invited to speak at international meetings, particularly on breast augmentation and uplift. He was recommended by the Tatler Cosmetic Surgery Guide in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2018 as 'Best for Breasts' and 'Best for body contouring'.

    The whole process was a breeze with Mr Ragoowansi. He was attentive and descriptive when answering any questions I had. I felt at ease during the procedure and my aftercare was great. I’m extremely happy with the results and wouldn’t hesitate to return should I require any further treatment!

    Dr Raj is extremely professional, polite and caring. He did a fabulous job with my abdominoplasty with liposuction. The cut was beautiful and the follow up was second to none. All the staff, from the secretaries to all the nurses in aftercare were outstanding and very accommodating. A lovely man, and fab team I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a first class experience. Thank you Dr Ragoowansi.

    I found Raj to be hugely professional, knowledgable and personable. Going ahead with the operation was one of the best decisions of my life and all his advice was spot on. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

    I was initially nervous attending my appointment but after meeting Mr Raj he immediately put me at ease. He did make me feel embarrassed or uncomfortable upon examination. Explained everything to me thoroughly so I knew what to expect during and after my operation. The after care has be excellent. Very please with the result, I have much more confidence and have had plenty of compliments about my new figure.

    It took me roughly around 4 years to actually go ahead with my tummy tuck during that period I met with Raj numerous times. Each time he listened and address my concerns and I’m sure I asked him the same questions over and over again. He did not give me any false expectations, however, the results far exceeded my own expectations. I never imagined what a difference the surgery would make to my body shape but being a shorty my body is now completely proportioned. I am almost 6 months down the line and still healing but still I am fascinated by the surgery.

    Lower Face and Neck Lift with Lower Lid Blepharoplasty
    Shortly after my 60th Birthday, Mr Raj Ragoowanzi presented me with a tailor-made solution, To contour my face and neck to represent the mirror image I had become used to in my early forties. I have had ‘scarless surgery’, the strategic placement of my scars has rendered them practically invisible, they are hidden in the natural creases of my body to such an extent that everyone asks me ‘what did I actually have done’? There is no remaining surgical evidence at all of any enhancement, everything looks completely natural. I am left now looking oh such a beautiful well-rested version of my former self. A specific plan was made and tailored to my individual requirements, various checks taken, to ensure I was in the best physical and mental condition, not only to receive the treatment but to ensure a good long term result. All of this attention continues long after the initial result has been achieved. Mr Ragoowanzi is always there for support and advice all through and after the recovery programme. I truly believe he is the outright leader in his field, he is dedicated to his work. There is no doubt in my mind, that he absolutely connects with all of his patients, taking great pride and pleasure in the joy and happiness he creates, when you look, the one you dreamed of, becomes your reality.
