doctor. Rather than following the familiar adage of “time is money” so often encountered in medicine today, Dr. Kalus strongly believes that his patients deserve his
utmost attention and time. That is why he has always phoned his patients personally after their surgery to ensure that their recovery is progressing well. He leaves no
stone unturned in ensuring the likelihood of a successful outcome while maximizing patient safety and minimizing risk.

Dear Dr. Kalus,
Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my questions. My husband and I are both thrilled that you will be doing my surgery. We
both feel so comfortable with you and your wisdom. We trust you completely to make the best decisions for my body. Thank you so much
for being so kind, caring and compassionate with me!!! I'm very blessed to have you on my Surgical Team!!
After years of research and consideration I finally decided to actually begin the process of what I wanted my ideal breast augmentation to
look like. I gathered before and after photos online, that I felt looked like me before and represented the result I hoped to see post-op.
Imagine my surprise when I researched each photos' performing physician that 8 out of 12 were done by Dr. Kalus! And only 2 hrs from
where I live!
My surgery was yesterday and I just came from my follow up appointment. No pain and very little discomfort. Incredible how good I actually
feel just 24 hrs later. The results - amazing!! Exactly what I wanted.
From the office staff, to the nurses, the entire staff at Charleston Surgery Center where my surgery was performed, and of course Dr. Kalus -
all were the epitome of professionalism and caring. I am still somewhat in disbelief that this process, that I stressed over for years, was so
easy. Thank you sweet ladies and Dr. Kalus!
-L.F., Breast Augmentation Patient*
