  • About Mr Raj Ragoowansi

    GMC number: 3689855

    Year qualified: 1992

    Place of primary qualification: University of London

    Mr Ragoowansi graduated in medicine and surgery in 1992 from St Thomas Hospital Medical School, London with the final year elective spent at Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA. He was awarded the Smith & Nephew Surgical Prize for a dissertation on Evolution of Sutures in Surgery. After completion of training in general surgery and the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England (FRCS), higher training in plastic and reconstructive surgery was undertaken in London, East Grinstead and Chelmsford.

    This involved specialist exposure in reconstructive surgery of the breast, face, hands and trunk. Formal aesthetic surgery training in London was acquired at the Royal College of Surgeons approved institutions, Wellington Hospital and King Edward VII Hospital, London.

    He was awarded several research and clinical grants from the British Association of Plastic Surgeons to study the molecular mechanisms and treatment of abnormal scar formations. He has authored over 32 papers in peer reviewed plastic and reconstructive surgery journals and has been invited to lecture on the aesthetic surgery faculty for the University of London.

    In addition to providing a comprehensive reconstructive surgery service of the breast (post mastectomy reconstruction, congenital asymmetry) specialist areas of aesthetic surgery include breast reshaping, body contouring after weight loss, facial and eyelid rejuvenation and management of problem scars. A regular see and treat clinic for skin lesions is conducted with a dermatologist.
