Meet Dr. Kristi Hustak

Mother of 3, Loving Wife, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, & Women's Health Advocate

The Inspiration

Dr. Hustak was born on an Apache Indian Reservation in Whiteriver, Arizona. Her mother worked as a surgical first assist for an aesthetic plastic surgeon, and Dr. Hustak, at age 14, eagerly watched her first surgery.  This sparked her passion for the field.

Dr. Hustak’s training started in Ohio where she lived for 8 years. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with Distinction in Medical Technology from The Ohio State University in 2004.  She subsequently enrolled in medical school and completed a medical mission in Trujillo, Peru, where she expanded her international surgical interests.  For 6 years, Dr. Hustak completed a highly competitive integrated plastic surgery program at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, Texas.

Dr.Hustak's Commitment to Excellence

She is an active clinical faculty member in plastic surgery and trains residents from several local academic medical centers in the Houston area as they learn both cosmetic and reconstructive principles.  She also serves as a faculty member in the physician healing track at the University Texas Medical Branch, mentoring medical students in the development of their professional identity as doctors and healers. She is an Assistant Program Director for the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery Aesthetic Fellowship that started in 2016.

“Dr. Hustak is committed to utilizing her talents to rejuvenate your body and restore form and function, while refreshing your soul through the art of plastic surgery”

National Speaker, Local Authority, & Innovator

Dr. Hustak is a recognized authority and sought-after national speaker on female genital rejuvenation and cellulite. She frequently shares her expertise at local and national conferences, including those hosted by The Aesthetic Society and Revelle Aesthetics. Dr. Hustak has developed several innovative techniques in her field and regularly publishes research with her ACPS colleagues to enhance the safety and efficacy of procedures. In addition to her national presence, she is actively involved in the local community, educating both men and women on bodily changes and options for aesthetic and reconstructive improvement. Furthermore, she trains providers on vaginal rejuvenation devices, helping to establish standards of care within the community.

Women Empowerment

Dr. Hustak is a dedicated women's health advocate and a beacon of empowerment for women everywhere. Through her comprehensive mommy makeover procedures, she helps women reclaim their bodies and confidence, providing a holistic approach to post-baby body restoration. Specializing in vaginal rejuvenation, which can be seamlessly integrated into her complete mommy makeover procedures, Dr. Hustak addresses both the aesthetic and functional aspects of women's health. Her work empowers mothers seeking to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies and supports women on their weight loss journeys, offering them the opportunity to feel rejuvenated and confident. She believes that every woman’s path is unique and important, encouraging them to embrace their journeys and celebrate their achievements in a safe and supportive environment.

Dr. Hustak stands out in the greater Houston area as one of the few doctors specializing in vaginal rejuvenation, and she uniquely emphasizes its inclusion in the "complete mommy makeover" during patient consultations. She has refined a novel technique that enables labial reduction and vaginal tightening to be performed under local anesthesia in the clinic, eliminating the need for general anesthesia. This less invasive approach is highly appreciated by her patients, who value the avoidance of IVs, tubes, and the deep sedation associated with general surgery.

Advocacy, education, and passion are core tenets of medical professionals, and I embrace them whole-heartedly
