Meet the Staff

Welcome to Kavali Plastic Surgery and Skin Renewal Center. I am thrilled to have you here, and I hope that you will have a rewarding experience with us. This practice is a labor of love for me, and has no shortage of my own blood, sweat, and tears in it. When I started it in 2002, I had no idea where we might end up and no idea how quickly we would grow. Our success is due to our people and our ability to communicate, sympathize, and empathize with our patients.

Our goal is to provide you with the “ultimate patient experience”. Our well-trained staff will help you understand your procedure, our financial policies, the scheduling of your surgery, and your postoperative care.

Testimonials

Dr. Kavali and her entire staff are professional, caring, and superb medical caregivers. All of my concerns were addressed promptly and I was treated as if I were the only patient of the day. My surgical outcome not only met my pre-operative expectations but exceeded in making me feel more confident about my appearance. Dr. Kavali is the ONLY plastic surgeon I would recommend. I would not consider nor would I trust any other physician to resculp my body. Kudos to her amazing staff for making sure I was comfortable and informed. Wonderful experience.
