"I recently had the privilege of undergoing a mommy makeover procedure with Dr.Charvet, and I cannot express how thrilled I am with the results. From the moment I walked into the clinic, Dr. Charvet and his entire team provided an exceptional level of care and professionalism. Dr.Charvet possesses remarkable surgical skills and expertise. He took the time to thoroughly understand my aesthetic goals and addressed all of my concerns with patience and compassion. His extensive knowledge on all things in his field. He will answer your questions with statistics and detailed reason for all of his post-op instructions. Follow all of his instructions to the T and you will be in very good hands. My decision to get the surgery was something that was in the works for over a year. Now that I am 5 weeks post op I'm angry I didn't do this surgery last year! I shouldn't have waited, from that 1st visit with Dr.Charvet in 2022 I knew I had the right doctor for me. If you are considering a mommy makeover or any other cosmetic procedure, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr.Charvet. His skill, expertise, and compassionate approach make him the ideal surgeon to trust with such an important journey."



"My visit at Dr.Charvet’s office was a wonderful experience. It also exceeded my expectations. Your unwavering dedication, skill, and compassion have undoubtedly played a great role in achieving such a positive outcome. My procedure was better than I expected Dr. Charvet is a first class plastic surgeon. I would highly recommend him to any friends or family for any of their cosmetic needs. Amy Cox"



"After years of wanting to get rid of my lower belly fat, I decided to go to a plastic surgeon to see what procedure options would be best for me as a 50th birthday present for myself. I choose Magnolia Plastic Surgery and Medspa and I am extremely happy with the whole process. Dr. Charvet and his staff made me feel very comfortable from the beginning and throughout the process. He explained the different options and the outcome and we decided on Vaser Lipo. I am over 100% happy with my results. I am very thankful to Dr. Charvet and his team. I no longer worry about my lower belly pooch and have so much more self confidence."



"I am so happy that I followed a Facebook recommendation to receive a consultation with Dr. Charvet and his staff. I met with 3 other surgeons. None of them made me feel the way Dr. Charvet and Dominique did. I really felt that Dr. Charvet was confident in his work, yet realistic about how my results would be. I decided to schedule my Mommy Makeover with them. This was my first ever cosmetic procedure. Six weeks later, I am very pleased with the way it is coming together. I feel much happier when I look in the mirror. Each follow up visit with Dr. Charvet is good! He really knows what he’s doing! Highly recommend Magnolia to anyone who wants to feel like a new woman.
