Wanted to use cadaver parts in lieu of abdominoplasty, April 18, 2010, 5:18 pm
Reviewer: LMY3

***OFFICE VISIT ONLY *** I went to Dr. Kalus for an abdominoplasty and wanted smoothing done for an area that was overly lipoed by Dr. Kroll before he lost his medical license. Dr. Kalus had me wait at least 45 min in the front office waiting room, then another hour or so in the exam room, then after less 5 minutes with me in the exam room, he stepped out to take a personal call, and came back 20 minutes later. That aside, I had an issue with rippling over my lipoed abdomen and wanted to get his opinion of an abdominoplasty. What he offered as a sole solution was inserting a cadaver muscle over my own muscle to allegedly smooth out my abdomen. Only one issue, the pockets of fat are adhering randomly to my body -- so layering somthing smooth over my already smooth muscle will not alter the pockets of uneven fat across my abdomen. He was so bent on that procedure, I felt he was trying to use my body and medical need to get his own experience with using cadaver parts. Needless to say, I was totally appalled that he had no other solution toward an abdominoplasty that I could work with. I consider him lacking medical experience and knowledge due to that issue. Of course, now using cadaver parts is explicitly prohibited, but for a while, it was an option -- it just was wronging considered as my only option when I sought care from Dr. Kalus.

Dr. Kalus was recommended to me by my primary physician.She told me that Dr. Kalus was one of the few people she would trust my body and life to.She said that not only was he an experienced plastic surgeon but he also had medical knowledge so that he would know what to do if I went into cardiac arrest or had problems he would know what to do. Be careful! Just because someone can do lipo doesnt mean they have proper medical training. Dr. Kalus and his team have been wonderful even though I call and annoy them daily since I am nervous about my surgery. I highly recommend him. Take a look at his site!
