Mohs surgery reconstruction patient

“Just wanted to let you know I am doing great. Doc does amazing work. I was looking at those stitches and I decided Doc can come and quilt with me anytime!!!
I don’t think that the words ‘Thank You’ are enough. I just thank God that he puts people like the Doc and his whole team on this earth just to help people like me. It is a miracle anyone can do this. Thank you and I am doing great!”

Gender-Affirming Mastectomy

Initially, when I had my first consultation back in January of 2021 with Dr. Kelamis, he was with his previous practice. He wasn’t my first consultation however the general reviews were great so  I decided to give him a shot. I couldn’t locate any pictures of the results from his top surgery procedure (a.k.a. reconstructive double mastectomy) and was cautious and wary when going into the consultation. They also only had two pictures from patients with the same surgery in the office as well. However, when I met him, I knew he was the surgeon for me and my personal body type. He is kind, caring, and open to any questions you may have about him or the procedure itself. He explains the reasoning behind his choices in an understandable manner and I felt like I could trust him.

The day of my surgery went the smoothest I could have ever hoped for. The hospital staff was fantastic and treated me like a king- they kept me calm and treated me more as a person than a  patient. Dr. Kelamis came in beforehand to take the measurements and double-checked that the way he was going to operate was okay with me. After I agreed, I was whisked back for the surgery!

Post-op, I was exhausted (understandably so). He had two drains leaving from my stomach instead of under my armpits which made emptying them and carrying them/resting with them easier than I anticipated. I also had waterproof bandages on so I could shower the day after my surgery. I was sent home with papers on how to drain my bulbs, sleep, shower, medicine schedules, and the anticipated side effects of the medicines. There were a few questions that I  did have that weren’t on the discharge papers so I emailed the surgeon/the office and asked.  The response times were phenomenal!! I had an answer within a day even on Sundays- which surprised me honestly. They began to move to their own office and separate from the previous practice in the middle of my process so my post-op appointments are at their new office. My first one was in-person so he could remove my drains (they felt like a wet noodle) and look over the incisions to make sure everything was healing alright/change the dressings on the incisions. He answered any questions I had and answered a few questions I had for him in regards to those looking for a surgeon. I was also their first telehealth appointment for my 1-month post-op. The call went really well! There were a few seconds where his side lagged but other than that it went really smoothly!

All in all, I’ve had a fantastic experience with Dr. Kelamis and I honestly don’t think I could have chosen a better surgeon.

I’ve been going through Breast cancer since last October, and I still have more surgery to go through. Dr. Kelamis and all his staff (especially Taylor and Victoria) were so professional and explained everything so you knew all options. I feel very lucky to have found such professionalism and caring during this life changing disease! I would highly recommend Dr. Kelamis...

Everyone at Dr. K’s office has been so accommodating, including Dr. K himself. They go above and beyond to make you feel like a VIP patient. Every time I go I know I am getting top notch care and they never dismiss and of my concerns and are always quick to address any of my needs. They are very flexible to work with much schedule for appointments as well. Overall I couldn’t ask for better care. I’m incredibly glad I chose them. I couldn’t dream of having a better Doctor or team to take care of my needs. I’m forever grateful!

I consulted with Dr. Kelamis due to breast implant illness. From the very first contact, where I scheduled a new patient appointment with his office, I’ve been blown away by the care I received. At my initial consultation, Dr. Kelamis and his amazing nurse, Taylor, patiently sat in the exam room with me and allowed me the time to cry and tell them my story. I was shown sincere compassion, understanding, and concern over my well-being. I left feeling validated, and at peace with knowing beyond a shadow of any doubt I was in good hands. I cannot even express the relief I felt in knowing I had finally found a plastic surgeon that took the time to understand and could help me.I’ve had several surgeries in the past and, at least in my experience, it is common for the surgeon to be rushed and abrupt when he checks in with the patient right before surgery. But Dr. Kelamis stayed true to his demeanor from my initial visit with him and once again patiently gave me time to talk to him. He preformed an en bloc total capsulectomy on me in August of this year. I can tell by the way my breasts look and feel that Dr. Kelamis is very skilled in this field and that he meticulously did everything he could to not only correctly and completely remove the capsules and implants, but also to leave me with the best look possible, given the circumstances. From what I’ve seen, this level of expertise is rare and absolutely invaluable.At my post-op visit, Dr. Kelamis was once again gentle, kind and patient. I feel privileged that he is my doctor and I am forever grateful to have found him.

Dr. Kelamis did my breast reduction and tummy tuck last August and a little over a year later and I could not be happier with my results. It is even better than I thought before I had the surgery. He is a very meticulous surgeon with a gift and I am incredibly happy I did the surgery. If you are even just a little on the fence, go see Dr. Kelamis!

Kelamis plastic surgery was my last hope for my back pain relief, as I've done n been to every Dr n specialist around finally getting told a breast reduction would work. I have not had the procedure yet (I'm quitting smoking to proceed) but Dr and Maria were amazing. They made me feel very comfortable, as I'm very self conscious and never been to a specialist like this before and I trust what they both had 2 say. I am really confident that Dr can do he said he could and I'm so excited and looking forward 2 my surgery in a few months. Thank you!!

I was referred to Dr Kelamis when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In our first visit he was so compassionate and informative. Throughout my reconstruction he was focused on my recovery and gave clear and detailed advice for care. Dr Kelamis is patient and takes the time to answer my questions and adress my concerns. I’m so fortunate to have had him help me through this daunting and life changing experience.

My experience with Dr. Kelamis has been exceptional. He and his nurses have been the only providers to ask to examine me or to ask for permission to touch me. Really above and beyond. Dr. Kelamis spent time with me on 3 different occasions in the office answering questions and talking me through my procedures. I never felt rushed or like I was inconveniencing anyone in the office. All of the nurses at Willow Creek said Dr. K was the only surgeon they used. Several more talked about how he doesn't leave the operating room until he's sure everything is perfect. This is exactly what you want to hear about your plastic surgeon. I will say as a new practice there are some front office hiccups but they were kind and responsive and things that needed remedied were immediately fixed. I'm a week and half post op and thrilled with my results and happy that I trusted my gut and went with Dr. K.

Dr Kelamis and his staff are like family to me. I had a Breast Reduction with a lift this past April and I'm so happy with my results. Dr. Kelamis is very passionate and honest with his patients. He talks you through every step leading up to your procedure even on the day of. I'm now 4 months out and I love my results. My follow ups are great and the staff is warm and welcoming especially his ROCK and awesome nurse Mrs.Taylor. I would recommend Dr. Kelamis to anyone who's wants the best consultation and care of surgery.

Very professional staff and so easy to work with! My husband consulted with Dr Kelamis for septoplasty and we were blown away by his patience, attention to detail, and thorough explanation of the procedure. He answered all of our questions and eased all of our concerns regarding the surgery. After reading on the internet, we were concerned the doctor would recommend turbinate reduction but were pleased to find out that it is not always necessary with septoplasty. Dr Kelamis demonstrated extraordinary knowledge of the nasal septum and surrounding tissues, and more importantly demonstrated compassion and patience in his exam. Highly recommend!

I have seen Dr. KELAMIS since March 2020. He is doing a reconstruction on me from a bilateral mastectomy with scar tissue from radiation 10 years ago. I give him a 5+++ rating. He takes time with me to answer questions. When I have pain and discomfort he knows exactly what can be done and explains all options. He is so knowledgeable about any medical problem. I completely trust his ability and insight. . Most of all he makes you feel comfortable and relieves all fears. His nurses are 5+++ too. They are so helpful, kind and caring. They feel like family. The receptionist is 5+++ also making you comfortable and answering any questions. Again I would strongly recommend Kelamis Plastic Surgery as they are the best.

I accompanied my wife during her appointment with Dr Kelamis everyone was so nice and helpful from the receptionist to the Doctor. Doctor Kelamis examined my wife said she should have an operation for her wound instead of what her other doctor suggested. Dr Kelamis explained why he wanted to operate and how he would do it. He explained everything step by step and in a way my wife and I could understand everything he said. Which a lot of doctors talk over your head.

Dr. Kelamis is to cosmetic surgery, like Pablo Picasso was to his masterful artwork.These days, finding a physician who perfects in his/her area, AND has impeccable bedside manner, is nearly impossible.

Dr. Kelamis is one of the best Doctors I have ever been to. I had a bilateral masectomy because of cancer and he is my plastic surgeon. Every time I see him he tells me what will happen next and asks how I am doing. He takes time with me and always makes sure I understand what's going on at this stage of recovery. He takes time to answer ALL my questions. I would highly recommend him. He has reduced my anxiety because he takes time making sure i understand. He is very positive and knowledgeable and patient with me. I would highly recommend him. His office staff is the best. You feel like they care. They too answer questions.

Dr. Kelamis is the absolute best! After my breast cancer diagnosis, he was referred to me by my other doctors. He is kind, patient , and highly skilled. Prior to surgery, the pre-op staff at the hospital assured me I was in good hands. His staff is extremely kind and knowledgeable. I recommend Kelamis Plastic Surgery to anyone who needs their services.
