Refresh your appearance. Procedures from Meridian Plastic Surgery erase signs of aging throughout the face or target specific areas for enhancement. We also help patients reshape and refine features with subtle change that offers significant improvement.

Explore a variety of options, including:

  • Facelift
  • Neck Lift
  • Brow Lift
  • Blepharoplasty

We also offer Botox® and facial fillers, and rhinoplasty (nose surgery).



Rejuvenate your breasts in a way that looks natural, grateful, and well-proportioned to your body. If you want to get back what you may have lost to the effects of aging or pregnancy or if you have always wanted to make a change in your appearance, Meridian Plastic Surgery offers a range of surgical solutions.

Our procedures include breast augmentation and breast lift; breast revision for patients who have had augmentation surgery previously; and breast reduction for women who seek greater comfort and more refined contour.



Shape your body with a slimmer contour. Meridian Plastic Surgery employs techniques that eliminate stubborn pockets of fat, remove excess skin and tissue, and refine your figure. Focus on one specific area, or choose whole-body improvement with our procedures.

Meridian’s body contouring options include liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, which work together to provide a flatter, stronger abdomen. We also offer liposuction for upper arms and thighs, and we provide the advanced CoolSculpting® technique for non-surgical fat removal.


  • Dr. Kelly,

    Thank you so much for giving me the confidence I have lacked since I was 15! I think I am even taller!

  • To Dr. Tjelmeland, Shylene, Jeri, Alexis, Cindy, and anyone else I forgot,

    Thank you for taking care of my life and body. You gave me my 40’s back. I look amazing. I will do everything in my power to keep it and even make it better. Menopause was very unkind to me but ya’ll kicked its butt! I have my spirit and mojo back. You truly are miracle workers. May you have many more miracles. God bless ya’ll. I can now go into my 50’s firm, fit, fabulous, flawless.
