Dr. Hustak was born on an Apache Indian Reservation in Whiteriver, Arizona. Her mother worked as a surgical first hand assistant 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. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from The Ohio State University College of Medicine in 2008, Dr. Hustak married her best friend and classmate, Dr. Erik Hustak, and settled in Texas.
For 6 years, Dr. Hustak excelled in a highly competitive integrated plastic surgery program at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, Texas. While there, she was awarded Top Plastic Surgery Resident, nominated for Outstanding Annual UTMB resident, won the Golden Scalpel Award for Surgical Excellence, and won the first ever Outstanding Resident Leadership Award. Upon graduation, she was recruited to join the Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery (ACPS).
Dr. Hustak’s commitment to excellence in the field of plastic surgery is evident. She is a local and national authority on female genital rejuvenation and “complete” mommy makeovers, and is a sought after speaker for local and national conferences. She has developed several innovative techniques in the field and continues to share her techniques, along with her ACPS colleagues, on ways in which to make procedures better and safer for patients. She is a clinical professor in plastic surgery and trains residents and fellows from several local academic medical centers in the Houston area.
Dr. Hustak is a loving wife and mother. Her husband is an academic anesthesiologist, specializing in cancer pain management. Together they have three beautiful children that enrich their lives daily. With her family’s love and support, 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.
We are pleased to offer consultations at both our Memorial/Town & Country office and our Galleria/Post Oak office. Currently Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday are our patient consultation days with surgical procedures on Tuesday, Thursday, and most Fridays.
Dr. Hustak’s goal is to have your interactions with ACPS as seamless and comprehensive as possible. You will initially be greeted on the phone or online chat room by one of our patient care specialists, who will schedule your appointment and answer all of your preliminary questions. We are available to you 24 hours a day.
Dr. Hustak’s patient coordinator, Claire, will then contact you to ensure that you have all the information you need for your initial consult, finalize the time and location of your appointment, and give you an overview of the process. We will also provide an online link to enable you to complete your medical history prior to the appointment.
On the day of your consultation, you will be greeted by our lovely front office staff, offered a beverage, and as quickly as possible, escorted back to your consultation suite. Claire will meet you there and begin to get to know you and your family and your aesthetic and reconstructive goals. Dr. Hustak will then further discuss your desires and examine you. A silk gown and comfortable atmosphere will ensure that you are pampered throughout your visit. Depending on the nature of the visit, measurements, photos, and implants can be used to demonstrate outcomes.
These initial consultations are scheduled for a comprehensive hour to allow enough time to answer all your questions and to enable you to feel confident in your decision. Dr. Hustak welcomes additional complimentary visits at your leisure to ensure that any further questions are answered. Patient education is a core value in Dr. Hustak’s practice, and you can be assured that the knowledge you gain during your visit(s) will be well worth your time.
“I strive to have your initial impression of ACPS to be one of comfort, prestige, and confidence that I can not only meet but exceed your goals and expectations. I can assure you that placing your trust in me will not be misplaced” Dr. Kristi Hustak

Dr. Kristi Hustak specializes in cosmetic female genital rejuvenation, one of the fastest growing areas of cosmetic plastic surgery. No longer a taboo topic of conversation—more women are seeking options to improve the comfort and appearance of this region as well as nonsurgical and surgical treatments which enhance the enjoyment of intimacy.
As a female plastic surgeon and mother of two, Dr. Hustak brings a uniquely empathetic perspective to her role, allowing her to authentically connect with patients and understand their goals. Dr. Hustak says, “I understand what it’s like to face changes to the body after having a baby–the roller coaster of emotions that goes with this, and the diet and exercise woes so many of us experience to reclaim our bodies after all of this.”
Patients who choose Dr. Hustak appreciate not only her personal understanding of their goals but also the professional standards of excellence she upholds, as reflected in the prestigious honors she’s earned. Dr. Hustak has been named one of the top plastic surgeons in Houston in polls conducted by H Texas and Houstonia magazines. As a resident in the highly competitive plastic surgery program at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, Dr. Hustak received acclaim as the UTMB Plastic Surgery Resident of the Year, an honor her peers awarded her in 2013. She was named an Overall Outstanding UTMB resident of the Year nominee 2014, an accolade given to a select few out of 500 residents.
Dr. Hustak is extensively trained in the most current surgical and nonsurgical methods to achieve improvement of a broad range of the aesthetic concerns her patients express. Most of the cosmetic female genital rejuvenation procedures she offers do not require general anesthesia and patients can return home the same day. Below are some of the most common cosmetic female genital rejuvenation procedures Dr. Hustak performs:
The goal of cosmetic vaginoplasty is to restore tightness to the vaginal canal, which is often stretched in women who experienced vaginal childbirth, becoming increasingly more so with each vaginal birth a woman undergoes. Excess vaginal tissue lining is removed and, in some cases surrounding muscles are tightened with the goal to increase friction during intercourse to heighten pleasure.
This procedure encompasses procedures related to the labia minora (inner lips) and labia majora (outer lips). Some women desire labia contouring and/or reduction because they want to improve asymmetry, the fit of their tighter pants and swimwear, and/or they feel self-conscious during intimacy.
The G-spot is a sensitive area of the anterior wall of the vagina that can be stimulated to arousal in some women. Enhancement of the G-spot is a simple office procedure in which a small amount of dermal filler, usually a hyaluronic-based product, is injected into a location that you and Dr. Hustak determine together at the time of your consultation is the area of maximum sensitivity for you. This is typically about 1-3 inches past the vaginal opening.
Some women wish to reduce excess fullness of the mons pubis, which is the hair-bearing triangular region between the lower abdomen and vulva. While this area is typically addressed during a tummy tuck procedure, it can also be performed as an isolated procedure through liposuction to remove fat and or the excision of extra skin to restore a firmer, flatter contour. In other cases, women may want to add volume to a deflated mons, a goal that can be achieved through cosmetic injectables.
Some women, particularly those who are post-menopausal due to normal hormonal changes and those who’ve undergone major weight loss, experience atrophy of the labia majora. The loss of cushioning in this area can make some activities physically uncomfortable such as riding horses, motorcycles, and sexual intimacy. Volume can be added through dermal hyaluronic acid fillers or through fat grafting, in which your own unwanted fat is removed from one area of the body through liposuction and then transferred to your labia majora or mons via small needles.
