Charleston Plastic Surgeon Reveals Tool for Improved Breast Surgery Satisfaction
Dr. Ram Kalus of Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas offers a unique online tool that has helped increase patient satisfaction following breast enhancement surgery at his practice.
Charleston, SC — Revision breast surgery is a procedure intended to correct and/or improve the outcome of a previous, unsatisfactory breast operation. At Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas, Charleston plastic surgeon Ram Kalus, MD has performed numerous breast revision surgeries for patients seeking his help in achieving the cosmetic results they originally sought from their initial augmentation, lift, reduction, or reconstruction procedure. Though revision breast surgery can be an excellent option for patients dissatisfied with their results, Dr. Kalus offers a tool that can help ensure patients achieve optimal outcomes the first time, therefore eliminating the need for a revision.
According to a recent blog post on his website, most postoperative concerns stem from breast size and implant issues: “Many women complain of either not being large enough or having been over-augmented and feeling as though their breasts look artificial and disproportionate. Other problems can include highly visible or round implants that are either too firm, too high, or both.”
In order to help protect against these common post-surgical concerns, Dr. Kalus devised an online tool patients can utilize to more accurately select their breast implants prior to surgery. For those at his practice who have taken advantage of the unique implant selection tool, the Charleston plastic surgeon says he has noticed much higher post-surgical satisfaction rates as well as an exceptionally low occurrence of revision breast surgeries.
In the end, Dr. Kalus says, “The most important aspect of a satisfactory result for the breast surgery patient is understanding proportion and aesthetics. This is as true for the breast augmentation patient as it is for the breast reduction or breast reconstruction patient. The patient needs to feel confident that her plastic surgeon not only has the same sense of aesthetics as she does, but also possesses the surgical skill set and experience to be able to achieve her desired outcome.”
