He is the former President of The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and is passionate about his work on the face and passionate about his interest in people. He believes that taking a focussed approach significantly improves the outcome for his facelift patients. Safety is a major priority and Rajiv operates in two of London’s Premier Private hospitals both of which are renowned for providing medical services to the Royal Family.
The best facelift surgeon in the UK
Rajiv is on the Specialist Register of the GMC for Plastic Surgery and has performed over 2,000 Facelifts during his 20 year Consultant career. He specialises in performing Deep Plane Facelift and Deep Plane Neck surgery. He has spent two decades developing and publishing techniques in the scientific literature to enhance the safety and outcome of facelifting – what he refers to as ‘Faceology’. In recognition of his work Rajiv has been appointed as a Hunterian Professor at the Royal College of Surgeons.
Rajiv believes artistry is the key to helping patients look their natural best and avoiding signs of surgery. After studying the original manuscripts of Leonardo da Vinci in the Louvre, Rajiv discovered that Leonardo defined natural beauty as the sum of three virtues – youth, femininity, and elegance; characterised by contour, definition, and silhouette. Leonardo called this ‘the formula for the feminine eternal’. Rajiv has applied Leonardo’s formula to the technique of Deep Plane facelifting to help restore natural beauty. For his uniquely artistic approach to facelift surgery, Rajiv was awarded a Guggenheim Professorship at the Louvre in Paris. Personalising each facelift so it still looks like you is equally important. Rajiv addresses this by using younger photographs of his patients as a roadmap to guide surgery, a concept known as “Facelift Couture” which he presented in collaboration with Alexander McQueen in Paris.
Patients requesting facelift surgery seek improvements in confidence and self-esteem as much as physical change. Rajiv’s approach is personal, compassionate, and honest. He enjoys looking after his patients individually from beginning to end without delegating any of the surgery or aftercare. Compassion and a personal approach are his tools for translating the physical change of surgery into the power of confidence. Rajiv has collaborated in Rome and Oxford with Franca Sozzani, the Editor in Chief of Italian Vogue to highlight and improve the benefits of facial surgery in restoring the confidence of the girl within.
Rajiv’s skill and experience rejuvenates your cheeks, jawline, and neck; but his artistry and compassion bring beauty and confidence back to your face.
