Dr. Praful Ramineni Left the Client Disfigured, Called her Review False
This was a painful read. Jamie warns consumers that Dr. Ramineni botched her surgery, left her disfigured and stopped returning her calls and emails. Moreover, his staff members, Jacqueline and Katie thought it was funny to touch her inappropriately during her post-op meeting.

She shares that it was very hard to admit she was abused, touched and botched. Jamie had contacted this clinic in July 2020 to set up an appointment with the doctor. It took them a while because the staff forgot to send her an email but she was able to set up a date for her surgery in December.
Jamie had paid the clinic for the surgery in full 2 months in advance. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Ramineni was 90 minutes late and he didn’t talk to her about the procedure once completed.
Three days later, she went to the clinic to change her dressing (faja). She arrived 10 minutes early to the appointment and says that Jacqueline (the staff) was rude to her because of it.
Jacqueline handed her the faja abruptly and when she saw that the reviewer was putting on the faja slowly, she aggressively pushed her hands out and tried to put on the faja for her. Jamie adds that Jacqueline touched her inappropriately and when she screamed “STOP”, another staff member entered the room and started laughing at her.
It was a very traumatizing and painful experience for her.
A week later, her bandage fell off from the right side of her hip causing it to bleed profusely. She called the office and asked to put her on call with Dr. Ramineni. The staff told her that she should take a picture of her bleeding and send it via email to the doctor because Praful was seeing a different patient at the moment.
However, when Jamie requested the staff member he put her on line with Dr. Ramineni who told her that it’s pretty common and hung up the phone.
Three weeks after the surgery, she emailed Dr. Ramineni about the excruciating pain she was feeling on the left side of her hip. He brushed it off and told her that it takes a year for things to get normal.
But as months went on she shares that her left hip kept getting pointer and pointer. In June 2021, she contacted Dr. Praful for the 5th time and he admitted that there was an issue with her surgery.
Jamie adds that during all this she didn’t have one follow-up meeting with the doctor and he didn’t even call her to check up on her progress.
Below is the reviewer’s image of her results:
The reviewer shared her experience on other platforms because Dr. Ramineni wouldn’t resolve the matter:
Botched Breast Reduction Gave Scars and Poorly Shaped Breast
The above reviewer had a breast reduction with Dr. Praful Ramineni. She was very excited for her consultation.
However, even after a year after her procedure, her left breast didn’t become round. She also points out that she has no feeling in her nipples and they are too high up. The reviewer also points out that she will probably need a scar revision to fix the appearance.
Below are the images of the reviewer. You can see the visible scars on her breasts and it seems Dr. Ramineni rushed the procedure:
Botched Multiple Surgeries, Rushed Appointments and Didn’t Care About the Results
Madison had given Dr. Ramineni a positive review at first because she liked the courtesy of the staff. However, her results were traumatizing.
She had a breast augmentation and abdominal liposuction with fat transfer to her face. While the fat transfer was successful, the liposuction and breast augmentation were botched.
She points out that the liposuction is horribly uneven and is not getting better even when 4 months have passed since the procedure. Madison suspects that she might need to get it revised.
On top of that, her left breast is laterally displaced while the right breast is bottomed out. Dr. Ramineni didn’t acknowledge the problem and told her to wear a tight underwire bra to fix the issue which did nothing.
She had to get a revision surgery to make her breasts symmetrical. Also, she points out that Dr. Ramineni had used implants of two different sizes when she needed both of them to be the same.

Dr. Praful Ramineni at District Plastic Surgery Review: Conclusion
As you can see in his reviews, Dr. Ramineni has failed many surgeries. There can be plenty more victims of this guy considering it’s a very personal matter and people hesitate to share such experiences online.
Moreover, it’s obvious that his clinic isn’t great at service. They don’t handle appointments as effectively as you’d expect.
Hence, it would be better to find a different surgeon in Washington D.C.
Dr. Praful Ramineni has botched too many surgeries and his staff doesn’t help you if you face any complications or issues with his procedure. There are many flaws in his surgical skills and his patients have suffered because of them. Don’t take the risk and find someone else.
- Bothced too many procedures
- Doesn’t care about the results
- Rushed appointments
I hate it when doctors act holier than thou. If you’ve made a mistake, ADMIT IT! It doesn’t cost anything. And please don’t blame the patient when you are clearly in the wrong. Dr Praful Ramineni seems like one of those guys who spills a drink on himself and blames the first guy he sees.
