The surgeons and staff at Meridian Plastic Surgeons are excited to welcome Meredith Kugar, MD to our practice!


Dr. Kugar grew up in Indianapolis. She attended Brebeuf High School and received her BS degree from the University of Notre Dame. Dr. Kugar attended Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis and completed her Residency in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. She then completed a prestigious Fellowship in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery with renowned aesthetic surgeons Drs. Holly and Simeon Wall, Jr. at The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery in Shreveport, LA.

During that time, she was able to perform a wide variety of aesthetic plastic surgeries for the breast, body and face – including SAFELipo (created by Dr. Simeon Wall, Jr.), breast augmentation and lift procedures, circumferential trunk liposuction, body contouring, tummy tuck, arm lift, facelift, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty and more.

“I have strong family ties to Indianapolis and had always considered moving back to the Midwest. Ultimately, the opportunity to join Meridian Plastic Surgeons sealed the deal for me! I believe in what Meridian Plastic Surgeons stands for. The surgeons and staff are dedicated to exceptional care and providing patients with the best surgical results. Drs. Holly and Simeon Wall are good friends with Dr. Van Natta and were kind enough to introduce me to him. Dr. Van Natta is a world-class plastic surgeon who is well-respected in Indianapolis and on the national stage, so I was familiar with his great work even before meeting him in person,” says Dr. Kugar.

“I could not be more pleased to be welcoming Dr. Meredith Kugar to our practice! She is an Indianapolis native who had the good fortune to train with two of the best aesthetic surgeons I know, Drs. Simeon and Holly Wall in Shreveport, LA. Dr. Kugar brings a wealth of knowledge about cutting-edge techniques in aesthetic surgery of the face and body. She and I and our entire practice share an absolute commitment to obtaining the very best long-term outcomes for our patients.

“On top of being exceptionally well-trained, Meredith has a kind, engaging and empathetic personality. She is simply a genuinely nice person. I know she will strive to guide her patients through both the planning of surgical options as well as the surgery itself.

“I am personally very proud of what we have built at Meridian Plastic Surgeons. Our entire staff is focused on assisting our patients through their surgical journey with kindness and top-notch care. Dr. Meredith Kugar fits our culture perfectly. I am truly excited to see her practice grow with great success!” says Dr. Bruce Van Natta.

With the goal of creating a welcoming and approachable environment for her patients, coupled alongside a philosophy to combine her exceptional expertise with a personalized touch, she strives to provide truly individualized care for each of her patients. Dr. Kugar is dedicated to listening to her patients so they feel comfortable throughout their experience.

“I want to have honest conversations with patients about their goals and discuss what the available options are to help achieve those goals. I want patients to feel supported throughout every aspect of their plastic surgery journey. My commitment is to bring the best aesthetic care and outcomes to my patients,” she says.

Dr. Kugar will focus on surgical procedures for the breast, body, and face. “I love all the procedures I offer for different reasons, but after training with experts in breast surgery, that holds a special place for me,” she says.
