Dr. Anna Pavlov is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who recently joined Aesthetic Surgery Center Gulfport. Raised in Ocean Springs, she grew up in a family dedicated to the health and well-being of the Mississippi Gulf Coast community. Her father, Dr. Paul Pavlov, is a family physician in practice for over 30 years in St. Martin and her mother, Theresa Pavlov, was the former program director and executive director of the St. Vincent de Paul Community Pharmacy in Biloxi. Through their guiding influence, Dr. Pavlov was brought up with a passion for caring for the people of the Coast. After completing residency training at UNC Chapel Hill, Dr. Pavlov chose to move back to Mississippi to provide care for the community she loves. Her primary areas of interest are breast reconstruction and body contouring after pregnancy or weight loss. Her outpatient surgery locations are in Biloxi and Gulfport.
