Charleston Plastic Surgeon Lets Patients Take the Lead for Mommy Makeovers

Dr. Ram Kalus Works With Each Patient to Create an Individualized Treatment Plan

CHARLESTON, SC -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- Dr. Ram Kalus, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Charleston, knows that pregnancy, childbirth, and breast feeding can dramatically affect a woman's body. At Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas, Dr. Kalus' private practice, many women seek to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies through cosmetic plastic surgery. With mommy makeover procedures, Dr. Kalus helps women counter physical changes from pregnancy that are not reversible with a healthy diet and exercise alone.

Approximately 60% of Dr. Kalus's practice is devoted to women who have had one or more children and are interested in addressing concerns with their breasts, abdomen, or face. The remainder of his practice is devoted to breast reconstruction after mastectomy, and facial reconstruction following skin cancer excisions. According to him, the ideal candidate for a mommy makeover is a woman who is doing her best to eat right, exercise, and follow an overall healthy lifestyle. However, he also emphasizes to all young mothers that a busy lifestyle with young children may not be conducive to surgeries that have some obligatory downtime unless she has a substantial support system in place. "Patients cannot be expected to be Super Mom for at least a week or two after surgery," says Dr. Kalus.

A mommy makeover typically consists of a combination of a variety of different treatments. At Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas, Dr. Kalus often combines procedures including:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
  • Liposuction
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Facial injectables

The specific combination of procedures for an individual's mommy makeover depends on the unique concerns of the patient. "The first thing I ask a new patient when I meet her is, 'How can I help you?'" says Dr. Kalus. His goal is not to dictate the makeup of the mommy makeover, but help each woman achieve her desired aesthetic results. As a rule, Dr. Kalus does not make any unsolicited recommendations, but instead offers his expertise and opinions so patients can derive the maximum benefit from their consultations. For patients interested in a breast augmentation as part of their mommy makeovers, he even offers a unique website functionality entitled whatsizeshouldibe.com to help them ascertain which size implant will best help them achieve their goals.

No matter what procedure he performs, Dr. Kalus strives to produce the most aesthetically pleasing results possible: "With every surgery -- be it facial, breast, or body -- as well as for injectables such as BOTOX® injections and fillers, it is critical for me to achieve a natural appearing result." He believes mommy makeover patients often appear "overdone," and he only considers successful results to be those that look completely natural. If a person can tell a patient has had plastic surgery, he defines the result as "failed." Dr. Kalus says he consistently does everything in his power to help his Charleston plastic surgery patients achieve their cosmetic goals, look natural, and feel good about themselves.
