Giving Back in 2015
Over the years, the heart of our practice has always been about helping others, both in and out of the operating room. 2015 has been no different! So far this year, we’ve participated in numerous charitable activities, with Dr. Galante spearheading the effort. Here are a few highlights we’re proud to share:
We Supported Women With Bras in January.
That’s right, we sorted, packaged, and delivered bras to underprivileged women in Northwest Indiana, all thanks to your donations!
We Packed Away Hunger in April.
Dr. Galante organized a Pack Away Hunger event with the St. Mary Medical Center. We packaged over 30,000 meals for local food pantries and made new friends doing it — in hairnets, of course.
We Hustled for Hospice in September.
Just last month, Dr. Galante participated in the 2015 Hospice Hustle cycling event in support of Hospice of the Calumet Area. It could not have been a more perfect day spent supporting a more deserving cause.
We look forward to continuing our long standing tradition of giving back to the community during the coming holiday season, and of course, into the New Year. Want to get involved? Contact our practice to lend a hand!
The Benefit of Real Patient Stories
One of the most important steps when considering a plastic surgery procedure like breast augmentation or tummy tuck is viewing before-and-after photo galleries. We encourage patients to view as many as possible to help set realistic expectations for their own procedure and to see the physical work of the plastic surgeon they’re considering.
Many patients take it a step further by reading real patient stories on a variety of procedures. Here, patients open up about why they chose to undergo plastic surgery and why Dr. Galante was the perfect fit for them. You’ll gain an understanding of the whole picture, rather than just a snapshot (or 2).
