The philosophy that I embody (means) really sitting down and understanding what about a patient’s current situation bothers them.

Congratulations are in order for Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics’ founder, Dr. Ravi Somayazula, for being named one of Houston’s Top Docs for 2019 by H Texas Magazine. Bringing exceptional aesthetic results to patients from Texas, across the United States and internationally, Dr. Ravi is particularly proud to be given the title of Top Doc by a local publication.

H Texas Magazine is known for defining the Houston-experience, representing the city’s colorful culture. Featuring numerous columns by local writers, the publication includes sections on travel, dining, bridal, society and lifestyle. Each year, the magazine publishes its annual Top Doctor awards, honoring the city’s elite, talented physicians and their contribution to local healthcare.

The highly anticipated Top Doc profile in H Texas Magazine features a small group of Houston’s best physicians, each chosen for their dedication to their profession, exemplary skills and service to the community. Nominations open once a year, giving local doctors an opportunity to shine a light on their well-deserving peers.

A good patient-surgeon relationship is one of the most important parts of Dr. Ravi’s award-winning cosmetic surgery practice. Communication is vital to establishing realistic surgical goals. Dr. Ravi explains, “The philosophy that I embody (means) really sitting down and understanding what about a patient’s current situation bothers them,”. He then continues, “I spend a lot of time at the initial consultation. If that is not understood, then surgery itself may not fix all of the things that are actually bothering them. Really listening to the patient is important in terms of making sure they have the best experience with the best outcome.”

Along with his associate, Swapna Gopathi, MD, Dr. Ravi strives to bring each individual the natural-looking cosmetic results they desire.
