Mr Allan Kalus and Avenue Plastic Surgery have been involved in a number of innovations in plastic and cosmetic surgery.
At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we continually seek to provide an unparalleled standard of care for our patients before, during, and after their cosmetic surgery at our Melbourne day surgery centre. With one of the most experienced plastic surgeons in Victoria at the helm, we believe that we will continue to achieve a standard of care equivalent to, if not surpassing, the best care available in large medical institutions.
Avenue Day Surgery is registered with the Department of Human Services of Victoria as a private hospital. ACHS Accreditation is the highest award available to hospitals in Australia. We remain at the forefront of developments in plastic surgery and ambulatory patient care and we embrace new technology where it can be demonstrated to improve patient care and outcomes.
Mr Allan Kalus and Avenue Plastic Surgery have been involved in a number of innovations in plastic and cosmetic surgery. Following 15 years experience working in the best private and public hospitals both in Australia and overseas, anaesthetic and surgical techniques developed to the stage where Mr Kalus and his staff felt confident in being able to offer most cosmetic plastic surgery procedures as day case surgery. In the early 1990’s Mr Kalus and his staff developed new systems of patient care to enable patients undergoing procedures such as breast enlargement, breast reduction, rhinoplasty, and even abdominoplasty to return home the same day. The first 100 patients undergoing breast reduction as day surgery were reported in an article to The Journal of Ambulatory Surgery in 1995. The concept of day surgery means that the surgeon and anaesthetist have to undertake that their patient will be pain free, nausea free and able to walk easily to the bathroom by 4 o’clock on the day of surgery! This was by no means usual in 1991 when patients often spent several days in hospital receiving injections for pain and vomiting and with fluid being administered through an intravenous drip. How things have changed!
Day surgery also requires technically precise surgery to minimise the risk of excessive bleeding and bruising. Operative time also needs to be minimised and the latest anaesthetics used so that a rapid recovery from anaesthesia ensues.
