Charleston Plastic Surgeon Offers Life-Changing Pediatric Plastic Surgery

Dr. Ram Kalus Offers a Comprehensive Range of Pediatric Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Care to Address Congenital and Acquired Physical Conditions for Children

CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) -  "Whether a child is born with a particular ailment or develops one over time, physical abnormalities located on prominent areas of the body can often lead to embarrassment and self-consciousness about the way he or she looks," says Charleston plastic surgeon Ram Kalus, MD. As a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. Kalus is devoted to helping children address a variety of cosmetic and functional concerns through pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgery. According to him, some of the most common pediatric conditions include:

  • Disproportionate and/or protruding ears
  • Moles and birthmarks (congenital nevi)
  • Scars from accidents, burns, or cleft lip

At Plastic Surgery of the Carolinas -- Dr. Kalus' private practice -- the Charleston plastic surgeon offers a number of treatments and procedures that have proven to help reduce and even eliminate the appearance of the aforementioned conditions. His pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgery offerings include:

  • Otoplasty - Also known as ear surgery or ear pinning surgery, this procedure is designed to enhance the appearance of the ears by correcting asymmetries and achieving proper angles of protrusion.

  • Excision and/or Reconstruction for Congenital Nevi - This encompasses a variety of techniques that Dr. Kalus utilizes to diminish or remove pediatric moles and birthmarks.

  • Scar Revision - Scar revision refers to both minimally-invasive and surgical techniques designed to drastically reduce the appearance of excessive scarring on prominent areas of skin.

  • Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Repair - This condition occurs in approximately one out of 100 births, and is usually addressed in a multidisciplinary cleft lip or craniofacial disorder clinic, but Dr. Kalus has extensive experience with such conditions.

Regarding his pediatric surgery offerings as a whole, Dr. Kalus notes that he and his staff strive to employ the safest, most effective techniques to ensure patients receive the highest quality of care and results possible. In the end, he says it is his ultimate goal to help children gain or restore a sense of self-confidence that will benefit them throughout the developmental stages of their lives.
