Professor Ramakrishnan has done the best I could have asked for. I could fully trust his knowledge and experience and the results I have prove this. I’m 8 weeks post surgery and I am very happy with the results through recovery so far. I thank him and the people working around him for their professionalism, great care and consideration. I had many questions and multiple consultations all handled very thoroughly and the professor could not have been more helpful. I went into surgery relaxed and at ease because of this. I’m very glad I did my research and I definitely recommend him highly.
I am so happy with the results I achieved. Mr Ramakrishnan put me at ease straight away, provided excellent advise & allowed me to achieve the exact natural results I wanted with really minimal scarring. Couldn’t have asked for more, really exceeded all my expectations.
I am now 8 weeks post surgery and I am absolutely over the moon with the results. Professor Ramakrishnan and his team are simply the best. I had a radical mastectomy nearly 8 years ago and decided it was time for me to have reconstruction. Following a thorough appointment with the Professor, he encouraged me to have a DIEP Flap reconstruction. I cannot express my happiness with the results. This has changed my life and given me my confidence back. This man is very clever and an expert in this field. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Professor Ramakrishnan.
I am now 9 weeks post op with Mr Ramakrishnan. I would like to say how happy I am with both the results and services provided by Mr Ramakrishnan from the first meeting and all follow up appointments. He is professional and was very realistic when speaking about the whole procedure and results of the operation. He was very patient and the whole procedure was relaxed and I couldn't has asked for a better surgeon. I am over the moon with the results and I can not thank Mr Ramakrishnan enough for the procedure he has performed. I would definitely recommend anyone to use his fantastic services.
Following an extremely bad leak from 30-year-old implants, there were concerns that the skin beneath the breast would be too thin to heal and could result in skin necrosis. Despite this Professor Ramakrishnan did a fantastic job in removing and replacing the old implants. The procedure went smoothly and has healed beautifully. I am so happy with the result and feel very lucky that I chose this surgeon. He is kind, understanding, incredibly professional and explains everything from start to finish. I cannot fault the care I received and would have no hesitation in recommending him.
