Esteemed plastic surgeon Dr. Carmen M. Kavali shares a remarkable journey with her patients, fostering relationships that transcend individual procedures. After more than two decades in practice, she now welcomes to the practice Dr. Teri N. Moak, a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon who brings her expertise in facial aesthetics as well as breast and body procedures. The unique aspect of their practice lies in the enduring connections formed with patients. Dr. Kavali has observed patients progressing from breast augmentations in college to Mommy Makeovers after having children, and eventually, opting for facelifts in later life. “We’re not just looking at plastic surgery as a one time event; we’re developing relationships that will last over the years,” they say. This journey, marked by trust and a commitment to excellence, shows the personalized care and attention to detail offered by both surgeons.

About My Practice

What makes your practice distinct?

We strive to make every patient feel like part of our family. We see the consultation as the beginning of a relationship, and it’s our goal to partner with our clients for life.

How do you best educate patients?

Dr. Kavali: We pride ourselves on our educational process. It begins with our website—I actually wrote or edited most of the text on our website myself to be a source of comprehensive information regarding our procedures, and I wanted it to have my voice. We consistently hear from our patients that we spend more time with them and provide them with more detailed information than other offices they have visited.

What are your most requested procedures?

Dr. Kavali: Mommy Makeovers are huge at our practice, and we also do a lot of body contouring after massive weight loss. I love the challenge of renewing a face or figure that has been changed by pregnancy or weight loss—it’s incredibly rewarding to help give someone their best body ever!

About Me

What do you like to do when you're not working?

Dr. Kavali: I am a bootcamp instructor—I work out at 5:45 a.m. on weekday mornings, then head to the office. I also have two beautiful, smart children—Tyler and Sophia—and a wonderful husband.

A Minute With

  1. Career-defining procedure

    Dr. Kavali: I didn’t know I wanted to do plastic surgery at all until I saw a TRAM flap during my general surgery residency and I was blown away by the brilliance and elegance of that procedure, which uses abdominal tissue to rebuild a breast after breast cancer

  2. What i love most about my profession

    Dr. Kavali: I love that we are known as the “surgeons’ surgeon”— we operate from head to toe and aren’t confined
    to a specific body area

  3. The biggest misconception about my field

    Dr. Kavali: I’m amazed that many people still don’t understand that a board-certified plastic surgeon is not the same as a “cosmetic” surgeon

  4. Most inspirational thing i learned this past year

    Dr. Kavali: Until you give up the idea that happiness is somewhere else, it will never be where you are

  5. My motto

    Dr. Kavali: It will all work out—always

  6. The future of my field

    Dr. Kavali: I think we’re going to see an increase in the use of fat transfer for recontouring faces and bodies

  7. How my profession has evolved

    Dr. Kavali: There has been a definite shift toward more minimally invasive and nonsurgical options for facial and body rejuvenation

  8. My operating room playlist

    Dr. Kavali: Train, Adele and Chris Tomlin

  9. What sets my practice apart

    Dr. Kavali: We have a full range of options for our clients, for both nonsurgical and surgical treatments

  10. How do you manage patient expectations?

    Dr. Kavali: The first step is understanding what endpoint my patients expect. I always ask, “Six months later, what do you need to see in the mirror to believe it was all worth it?” That answer tells me all I need to know. We can then have a discussion about whether those are realistic goals and either look in the mirror together, or use my Vectra 3D imaging software, to see where we’re starting and discuss any potential limitations
