Mr Iwuagwu trained in many of the internationally recognised plastic surgery units in the country before spending over a year at the Christine. M. Kleinert Institute for Hand and Microsurgery in the USA. On return from the United States, he was appointed to the post of Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgeon, a position he has held from 2003 till date.
Mr Iwuagwu's private practice covers various aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as hand surgery. As a plastic surgeon, he also offers cosmetic surgery but these are for self paying patients.

Some of the elective hand procedures include hand rejuvenation by fat transfer, dupuytren's disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, ganglion, trigger finger and post hand trauma conditions such as contractures, delayed presentation of tendon division etc.
