5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

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

Dr. Kalus is WONDERFUL! After having 3 beautiful children I was wanting to get my body back close to where it was pre-pregnancy. Well, I feel that we accomplished that. I think that it is actually better than before. I love my breasts, my tummy, and my belly button. Your doctor has to really be a perfectionist in order for your belly button to come out as perfect as your breasts and tummy.

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

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

I'm so excited to finally pursue this long dream of mines. I'm getting gynecomastia correction surgery on March 18, 2015. I'll post pictures my results after then. Dr. Kalus is my doctor and he has been great to work with. He asked about my expectations and informed me of the possible outcomes of the surgery. A friend of mines told about Dr.Kalus and his professionalism. After some soul...

38 Years Old, Mother of 2. I Work Full Time As a Physician Office Specialist for a GYN Office in Charleston, SC.

I Finally Did It - Mount Pleasant, SC

After years of discomfort, and lots of research, I finally went through with my surgery. I had gone to my obgyn originally, who completely understood my concern but in the end I wanted it done by a plastic surgeon who had done the procedure many times before. I plan on giving a day by day review and will upload pictures when I have them. Day 1 I was put to sleep for the surgery (which I...

Breast Reconstruction After Bilateral Mastectomy - Charleston, SC

I was diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer after a lumpectomy in September 2014. My breast surgeon gave me a couple of treatment options (1) more surgery to have clear margins from the cancer that was removed, followed by radiation, and then be on a medication for 10 years or (2) bilateral mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. Considering my age (35 at the time of diagnosis) and having 3...

Botched Breast Reduction Beautifully Resolved - Mount Pleasant, SC

Dr. Kalus had to do revisional surgery on a really poor breast "reduction" from a year ago. He did a beautiful job and I am now a perfect 36C without implants. The awful scars from the first Dr. are gone too! I don't know how Dr. Kalus did it, but I am pretty sure it was experience, talent and diligence. To us, it is nothing short of incredible. I will never use anyone other than Ram...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Happy Birthday to Me AND the Girls + New Pics!

Hello & Woo-Hoo! This is so exciting! I am keeping this a pretty big secret, so it feels great to be able to come here and share my story, as well as learn from all of yours! I'm fast approaching my 42nd birthday and have always had breast envy! As an early teen, I was teased for being flat and eventually began poking fun at myself to control the humiliation. Needless to say, this...

I Was Better Before Surgery - Columbia, SC

Every time I look in the mirror I get angry. People can't believe I had a breast augmentation because they are so small. I'm asked frequently "why did you get them so small".. Extremely upsetting. Dr. kalus is arrogant and cocky. He didn't even keep his promise of fixing his work. I woke up from the procedure crying. He returned to give me my prescription and seen I was crying. He said within...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I had an amazing experience

I know Dr. Ram Kalus since 2007. He is a great plastic surgeon. He tries to maintain the natural beauty of your body while doing his procedures. I highly recommend him if you are planning on having plastic surgery. You won't be disappointed. Thanks Dr. kalus Julia Sanchez

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Natural results! Highly recommend

If I could give Dr.Kalus 10 stars I would. He did a breast revision for me last year and replaced my old saline implants with silicone and put them in the appropriate place. My case was not an easy one and he took it on with confidence and delivered great results. I am so happy! Amazing staff as well as a beautiful office. Kalus has an eye for detail.
