07/04/13 4 4 2 2 Horrible. My boobs are not very big for paying over 7000. I am disappointed. She also left me with scars. I don't even want to wear a bathing suit. The adhesive tape left me with scars. I had got them done before with another Dr in another state and never had the problems I am having now. I do not like my breast. They are too small and not much of a change from my original ones. I feel like I just threw money in the garbage. I wish I had read the reviews before going to her instead of listening to someone I did not really know. I am going to get the redone in a few years but will find someone new.

14/02/12 5 5 5 5 My experience with Dr. Kavali and her staff has been wonderful. I had 3 children, with which my first, I gained nearly 100 lbs, and my stomach was distorted beyond belief. I had massive amounts of hanging skin. I looked like a gastric bypass patient with all this hanging skin. I searched for 7 months for the "perfect surgeon". I studied several different ones because I was not going to just let anyone cut on me because they offered a cheaper price. I promise you I have read some horror stories, and you DEFINITELY get what you pay for with surgery. Plastic surgery is not something you want to cut costs on. You usually get a better job the more you pay, and it is completely worth it. After finding Dr. Kavali online and researching her and her reviews, I chose her and could not be happier. I am 8 months post-op and my tummy looks INCREDIBLE! I am very pleased all the way around. Please email me for incredible pics if you would like! [email protected]

01/09/11 4 5 1 1 I was sucked in by the radio ads. After 1st breast reduction, I had tags and some other issues. The 2nd procedure was IN HER OFFICE WITH NO SEDATIVE. She shot me up with numbing agent and started cutting into me. At times I would feel the cutting and scream and she would just shoot more novicaine in. The whole time gossiping with the assistant about some other staffer and her bad habits. I WATCHED THEM CUT MY BREASTS OPEN. Now, a few years later, my breasts are uneven. One is 1.5 cup sizes bigger than the other. My nipples are distorted and uneven. MY scars are TERRIBLE. Please, RUN AWAY!!!! I don't ever want anyone else to feel as horrible about their body as I do about mine! I can't wear bikinis or low cut tops, I don't like to be topless in front of my husband, bras never fit right... The list goes on. The worst part is, I'm not any smaller than I was on day one. (Except on one side.) PLEASE DO NOT USE DR. KAVALI.  Respond

19/07/11 4 3 1 1 It has been 5 years and the horrible scars and burns on my face remain. I was told by Dr. Kavali that she could take away the very few wrinkles on my face. She did not tell me she was going to fry my face with the laser. When I asked if she was going to fix it she said,"You don't expect me to pay for the fix do you." She told me it would be better in a year of two BUT... I when I waited and then wanted to sue her I was told the statute of limitations is... You guessed it! 2 years! I have stripes and burns on my face and neck and it will NEVER go away. I have spent more than $100,000 to fix it and can prove it. She is a **** with the laser and I can only hope to prevent her from burning you or your friend's face. I have pictures and proof and my e-mail is [email protected] so that you know I am not telling a non-truth. I have hated my self for 5 years and can't wear my good clothes or go out for dinner without crying. I'm a victim of Kovali! Signed -- Burned in Atlanta

13/10/10 5 5 5 5 I'm a guy and I was rather shy about seeking help for my male breasts. I went to see several surgeons and settled on Dr. Kavali. She set my mind at ease more so than the other doctors. I felt well informed and cared for through out my surgery and recovery. The results have been great and I feel much more confident in my appearance. -R  Respond

I now feel more comfortable in clothing. She was sweet, kind, and understanding. She has a wonderful staff and have recommended her to all my friends and family!!! The Best!  Respond

13/04/09 5 5 5 5 I highly recommend Dr. Kavali to anyone interested in plastic surgery. Her skills as a surgeon are outstanding. I went to several different offices before choosing Dr. Kavali. She is such a warm and caring person. Dr. Kavali gives you such personal attention and you never feel rushed. Her office staff is very friendly and I had a wonderful experience all the way around. She and her staff are always there to answer any concerns you have. Dr. Kavali herself even called me after my surgery to make sure I was doing well. I know anyone looking for a surgeon will be very happy with this office.  Respond

28/09/07 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kavali is the most amazing plastic surgeon you can get!! I went to many consultations and was so disappointed. After meeting with Dr.Kavali she put me at ease, and over the last year has done a lower body lift, thigh lift, breast reconstruction with augmentation, extended arm lift, and a different kind of thigh lift and some revisions, where my skin just didn't want to stay tight. I want to say that I went from weighing 353 pounds to 150 and the amount of skin Dr.Kavali had to remove was unbelievable. She was able to give me the body I always imagined was under there!!! Nancy her PA is unbelievable, and they both will be with you every step of the way!! There is no way you can find a better surgeon, and since I had so much done, you can take my word, she is the best!!!!  Respond
