About

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.

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.

Mr Ragoowansi was recommended to me by a friend, she had a breast augmentation with him about a year ago. I’d had the same procedure with another cosmetic surgery provider but unfortunately developed capsular contracture in my right breast. I was not receiving adequate after-care so when my friend told me how impressed she was with not only her results but the level of care before, during and after her surgery I booked a consultation. Mr Ragoowansi put me at ease right away and I could tell that he had my best interests at heart (health-wise and aesthetically). He took the time to listen to my concerns and gather all the notes from my previous surgery to make a decision on the best course of action. Mr Ragoowansi advised a capsulectomy and replacement implants, he advised larger implants to fill the pockets. I was nervous of this as I still wanted them to look natural, I also had very asymmetrical breasts and worried that larger implants would enhance this. Mr Ragoowansi explained we couldn’t use the same sized or smaller implants without performing a lift which would involve more scarring and advised to wait until necessary to do that, he asked me to trust him and I’m glad I did, I am over the moon with the results. The size is in proportion to my body shape, looks natural and he’s also improved the symmetry quite considerably! 4 months on and I am healing really well, my scarring is fading already. The whole process has been great throughout, the efficiency of his office team to the lovely nurses at The Sloane Hospital and of course Mr Ragoowansi himself who has been amazing, really kind and always getting back to me quickly over and questions or concerns no matter how small. You can tell he has real passion for what he does, my only regret is not finding him sooner.

I had a very positive experience from start to finish . I had to delay my op and Raj Ragoowansi was very supportive . When I eventually had the surgery he did a fantastic job and has continued (4months later) answering any queries I’ve had. Can’t recommend him and his team highly enough.

Mr Ragoowansi is a great professional that gives amazing results! He was kind, he did everything and more than I expected and I feel fantastic. I would highly recommend him to anyone- in fact my daughter is going to fly from LA to have her breasts redone by Mr Ragoowansi. We have such faith in him. He is a perfectionist and wants to give you what you have asked of him..I actually feel like I got alot more than I expected. He worked his magic and I have never felt more confident as I do now for a long time!!
