A registered nurse, Nikki is trained to provide various neuromodulator injections, including BOTOX® Cosmetic. She also offers expertise with dermal fillers, laser hair removal, intense pulsed light treatments, and skin care. Nikki’s calm and reassuring demeanor along with her excellent judgment for doing what is best for the patient makes her an asset to the practice and a welcome addition to our wonderful staff.

Our Patient-Centric Philosophy

We believe that an informed patient is a happier, more satisfied patient. That’s why we never attempt to sugar-coat the benefits or risks of any plastic surgery procedure when people visit us from Munster, Merrillville, Crown Point, and other nearby communities. We thoroughly explain your planned treatment with you during the consultation process. Patient education is at the top of our priority list, and we will make every effort to ensure that you feel informed and cared for throughout the entire process.

Although plastic surgery can make you look much younger, our goal is to improve the way you feel. It’s not just about looking younger; it’s about looking better and feeling younger.

Set your sights high for aesthetic improvement by enlisting the help of a reputable, board-certified plastic surgeon. Request a complimentary consultation online or schedule an appointment at Dr. Galante’s Schererville or Valparaiso office by calling (800) 721-3244.
