Specialties and Expertise

Dr. Charvet has many talents but is especially known for his work in breast & body contouring, breast reconstruction, and injectables. 


"Couldn’t be more pleased with my results so far! Dr Charvet took the time to consult with me about what I wanted and gave me exactly that. I had a Mommy makeover (lipo, tummy tuck with muscle repair, fat transfer to breasts and hips) This experience has been nothing short of amazing. I’ve regained my confidence and my core strength! Since surgery, I’ve been back for laser hair removal, Botox and lip filler. The staff and Dr Charvet care about their patients and are always available to answer any questions. I’d 100% do it all over again and will be a repeat patient for any future procedures."



"Great experience and overall care. Dr. Charvet and his staff have continued to exceed my expectations. He has an excellent bedside manner, is very thorough in explaining what he will be doing and takes his time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. I’m very pleased with my results so far and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a thoughtful, considerate and knowledgeable plastic surgeon."



"Very pleased with my results. I had zero pain and no complications. Dr. Charvet is extremely talented and his staff is amazing."



"When I was ready to have my partial mommy make over I had visited and researched many practices and as soon as I met Dr Charvette and the staff at Magnolia I knew I was done looking immediately. Their bedside manner is outstanding and they made me feel comfortable from the time I reached out to book a consultation, through surgery day, and now with my post op follow up appointments. I had a breast lift and my results are beautiful! Recovery was easy, they set me up for success prior to surgery answering questions and providing suggestions of what would assist me the best after surgery. I was up and about the day after surgery with very little discomfort. Now I’m three months out and couldn’t be happier. I also got Botox in my forehead and brow just to round out the refreshed look that I had in mind for myself. I wish I had reached out to Magnolia plastic surgery and medspa earlier. I recommend them to anyone who asks who I went to for my procedures. I will most definitely continue to visit them for injectable’s and medspa services, as well as any other surgical procedures I may want in a few years."



"Look no further! Experience: Dr. Charvet and his staff are amazing!! I had a tummy tuck with lipo to flanks and abs on November 18th. Dr. Charvet gave his cell number so I was able to contact him with any post-op concerns...on a holiday! Surgery is scary and being able to have access to my surgeon when needed made the recovery process 100 times easier. His staff are all so kind and caring. Ashley made me feel incredibly comfortable with personal "female" post-op concerns. Everyone is so welcoming and Dr. Charvet's bedside manner is the best I've ever seen. Results: I can’t express enough how happy I am with my results! I went from hating my body and depressed to look in the mirror to loving myself again. This surgery is game changing. Just do it! Have the surgery!!! 10 out of 10 recommend!"
