5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

40 YO W/ 3 Kids. Atlanta, GA

After age and 3 kids, a TT was much needed. 2 years and several consultations later, I found Dr. Kavali. Long story short, I have not 1 single ounce of regret. Dr. Kavali inserted an On Q pain pump to minimize my pain. Between the pain pump and the pain meds, I was never in any real pain; mostly discomfort. The first week PO, I did nothing but sleep. After having major surgery and round the...

Wonderful Experience-Ear Revision - Atlanta, GA

I have always been embarrased because of my large ears. They really stuck out and although I loved to wear my hair up I was self-conscious of my ears so I felt limited with hairstyles. My surgical outcome not only met my pre-operative expectations but exceeded in making me feel more confident about my appearance.

I got a tummy tuck and arm lift - Worth It - Atlanta, GA

Dr kavali and her staff was wonderful. The "spirit" when you walk in her office the first time made me know that she was the right Dr to put my life in her hands. Dr Kavali has a sweet spirit and made me feel very comfortable. Some of her staff got off work and came in and help during the surgery. I got a tummy tuck and arm lift and the only pain I had after the surgery was under my arms and I...

Well, it has been a short time in the 'thinking' but I am going for it-breast implants; saline, about 400cc MP is what I'm thinking; I want to be about a 34D (34b presently).

After doing sooo much research and...

Lipo of the Upper/lower Abdomen and Breast Lift with Silicone Implants - Atlanta, GA

I'm scheduled to have the surgeries listed above on June 30th. I'm 27 years old and currently weigh 145 pounds at 5'5". My bra size is a 36-C.

Wonderful Experience with Dr. Kavali - Atlanta, GA

I went to Dr. Kavali for a consult for revision for bottoming out in my left breast, my original breast augmentation was performed by another surgeon. I was immediately impressed by Dr. Kavali's caring and compassionate bedside manner. She explained what the repair would entail, post-op pain, recovery time, etc. and answered all my questions. I scheduled my surgery before I left her office...

Great Care- Couldn't Ask for Anything Better - Atlanta, GA

I had a Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift/Reduction on January 29th. The pre op care was very through and I felt comfortable going into the surgery. I did have some complications after the surgery but I was given Dr.Ks personal cell phone and as well as her PA. She actually had to come in and operate on me on a Sunday and her PA came in too. I cant say enough about the care I received. My results are...

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Best Service I've Ever Had! - Atlanta, GA

This visit was pretty extraordinary. I went in for a (relatively) inexpensive Botox treatment, and the doctor sat with me for almost a half hour. I've had this procedure around the country and have never had such a relaxing and ultimately satifying experience, both in terms of service and cosmetic results.
