Dr Raj Kanodia

Shortly to open up his services in Dubai, Dr Raj Kanodia is one of the world’s most renowned plastic surgeons, having worked with a number of Hollywood superstars. The son of an Indian insurer and the second of six children, he moved from Calcutta to Chicago at the age of 22, determined to become a plastic surgeon. In 1979, after training at the University of Illinois, he was offered a fellowship with Morey Parkes, at the time one of Hollywood’s top surgeons.

He later appeared on the TV series Dr 90210, removing three moles from Cindy Crawford in one episode – and setting himself on the road to stardom.

While the finishing touches are being put to his Dubai clinic, his Beverley Hills clinic has been a stopover for many of Hollywood’s current and past stars. A leading certified surgeon specialising in rhinoplasty and facial rejuvenation, Kanodia is sought by patients around the world.
