5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

39 Years Old, Mommy Make-over, Mother of 3 Children - Charleston, SC

Before chose Dr. Kalus, I saw a couple of Plastic Surgeons and did a lot of research on the different doctors around the area. After speaking with Dr. Kalus, I knew he was the surgeon that I wanted to do my mommy makeover. I had really wanted to get this procedure done but one thing I was nervous about was the surgery itself and the general anesthesia. Well Dr. Kalus totally put me at ease and addressed all of my concerns. When I went in on the day of the surgery, there was an overwhelming calmess I felt. I owe that to the fact that I TOTALLY trusted him. I was not nervous or anxious at all and that is saying a lot if you know me. Never did I feel like I was getting a "stripper" breast augmentation. They look and feel natural. You've got to remember you get what you pay for. He was a little more expensive than some of the others but when it comes down to it, you need to make sure that you are comfortable with your surgeon and that you are going to get wonderful results. Also, I liked the fact that he does the procedure at surgery center. To sum it up, I am extremely happy with my results and I wouldn't change a thing. I am so glad I met Dr. Kalus and his staff, and that I went forward with the procedure. If you are planning surgery, Dr. Kalus is the way to go!!!

30 Year Old Male, Gynecomastia Surgery, Combined Liposuction and Subcutaneous Mastectomies Removal. Charleston, SC

First of all, I usually don't type reviews or do surveys but I had to personally described this amazing experience. Dr.Kalus has been amazing through this entire process. The first time I met him, he was very informative and patient with me. He addressed all my concerns prior, during and after the surgery. MOST IMPORTANT: A few hours after the surgery, Dr. Kalus personally called and checked on me. As a nurse myself, I know too many doctors that would have had their nurse do this. He provided me with a number that I could send him a picture of my chest, if things didn't look right. Yeah, sounds like a VIP experience to me too. I live about a hour and a half from Dr. Kalus's office. So I only seen him on the day of the consult, the day of surgery, the day after surgery and one week post op appointment. Doesn't seem like a lot of time to spend with someone who going to be doing surgery on you but Dr. Kalus makes the most of the time you spend with him. When I left his office, I felt confident and informed. His staff is very polite, patient and helpful. Dr. Kalus and his staff made this experience worth it the risk. I personally highly recommended!

Breast Reconstruction After Bilateral Mastectomy - Charleston, SC

Dr. Kalus is a exceptional doctor and skilled surgeon. Prior to the surgery, he thoroughly explained the actual procedure and the recovery that follows, as well as welcomed any questions to ensure I was understood as a patient. He has followed me closely after the actual surgery with weekly appointments to make sure I was healing well and not experiencing any complications. I would without hesitation recommend Dr. Kalus- I definitely believe I have a world class doctor overseeing my care and recovery.

Botched Breast Reduction Beautifully Resolved - Mount Pleasant, SC

Dr. Kalus was kind and empathetic, offering treatment immediately for the oozing, scarring mess from the botched breast "reduction". He was never a bully and he answered all of my questions and began the healing treatment right away. I made numerous office visits during the healing period, for which I was never charged. His staff was very considerate and understood what an emotional time this was for me. They nurture, they care and they go above and beyond.

Happy Birthday to Me AND the Girls + New Pics!

I began researching doctors in Columbia, but wasn't really excited with many of the before/after pics I was seeing on some of the local doctors' websites. Eventually, I came across some testimonials from when Dr. Kalus was IN the Columbia area....he is now near Charleston. I was so impressed by the pics, his commitment to making sure you look as natural as possible, the testimonials and phone conversations I had with his receptionists when calling with my preliminary questions that I just felt really good about him. Then, when I decided to confide in one friend here in Columbia, I learned that she herself had already been highly referred to the same doctor and had her consultation with him. She was so impressed with him that she will also be entrusting him with her BA, too! That is so reassuring!

I Was Better Before Surgery - Columbia, SC

Dr. Ram Kalus Doesn't not take patient advice. He doesn't care about his patient. Once the procedure is done Hes done with you. After my surgery he left with out leaving my prescription. I woke up and instantly seen his work and broke out in tears. He promise to try to like his work. He ended up moving to charleston. Which is almost 3 hours from me. When I revisted him, he was arrogant and cocky. He belittled my feelings. He even had the nerve to ask me if I was satisfied with my life... Please save yourself the heartache. He's honestly not worth the money. His staff are liars, claiming she called me and I never recieved a phone call or voicemail. I still have to wear a bra in order to get the look im in need of... I could've just got victoria secret bras instead of spending almost $6,000 with him.
