Washington, D.C., native Dr. Anurag Agarwal came to Naples as a facial plastic surgeon with the Aesthetic Surgery Center. Nine years later, he is the owner and medical director of the practice. In addition to cosmetic work, the highly regarded surgeon has reconstructed the faces of many victims of trauma, and those of people with large wounds secondary to cancer removal. When he is not caring for patients or working on expanding his practice, Agarwal donates his time to Habitat for Humanity of Collier County and as a member of The Shelter for Abused Women & Children’s Domestic Violence Task Force. He’s also a volunteer physician with the Neighborhood Health Clinic. Agarwal spends off hours working out, playing tennis and spending time with his seven-year-old daughter, Natasha, whom he describes as his pride and joy and a ton of fun.
