In addition to serving their patients, Dr. Galante and his caring staff regularly give back to locals in need by donating time and services to a variety of charitable organizations in the community.

In his more than 20 years as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Galante has helped his patients from Merrillville, Munster, Crown Point, and other nearby communities meet their expectations for vibrancy and fulfillment. He views aesthetic medicine as more than a way for individuals to look younger; he sees it as a way for them to look more attractive and feel like the best versions of themselves.

World Class Care at Home

Though he received medical training in cities such as Indianapolis, Chicago and Nashville, Dr. Galante feels most at home practicing plastic surgery in Northwest Indiana. He was raised here, and graduated summa cum laude from Wabash College, just down the road in Crawfordsville. He received his medical degree from the Indiana University School of Medicine.

Dr. Galante left the state to pursue specialized training in plastic surgery at some of the country's finest institutions. After developing his skills and gaining experience, he chose to return to the area and establish his plastic surgery practice. He serves patients from throughout the Chicago area and beyond.
