For Men

Staying competitive in the workplace or your personal life isn’t always about performance. Give yourself the edge you need with an aesthetic tune-up from Dr. Gus Galante, a plastic surgeon serving patients from Munster, Merrillville, and other northwest Indiana communities. He understands the unique needs of men, and he works hard to create the noticeable, natural-looking results you want with the discretion and comfort you deserve.

Male Breast Reduction

Just as its name implies, male breast reduction is completely tailored to the unique needs of the male patient. It can be customized to each individual case and usually requires very small incisions that eventually fade to discreet scars. This surgery typically yields long-term results and requires only a bit of downtime.

Liposuction

Men can get a little extra help on stubborn areas of fat with liposuction. Like male breast reduction, liposuction requires very small incisions and can easily be used to sculpt the chest, flanks, abdomen, and other areas of the body — typically with long-term results.

Tummy Tuck

After significant weight changes, loose skin can hang around the abdomen, causing persistent sagginess that doesn’t respond to even the strictest gym routine. When unwanted skin is to blame, only surgical intervention can restore tone to this area.

Facelift

Dr. Galante knows that male facelift patients have unique needs and reasons for undergoing the surgery. By treating the most troubling signs of aging, which typically affect the lower portion of the face, Dr. Galante can keep you looking youthful, chiseled, and — most importantly — natural.

Neck Lift

Depending on the way you age, you may want extra attention paid to your neck. Using very discreet incisions, Dr. Galante tightens both the skin and the underlying structures of the neck, resulting in an attractive, well-proportioned profile.

Forehead Lift

By reducing visual “heaviness” from your forehead or brow line, Dr. Galante can change the entire appearance of your face, making you look younger, more alert, and even happier.

Eyelid Surgery

Using advanced techniques and very small incisions, Dr. Galante can smooth the skin around the eyes, remove fat deposits that cause bags, and lift skin for a youthful, vibrant appearance. Eyelid surgery is wonderful on its own or as a complement to other facial rejuvenation procedures.

A Reputation Built on Results

You deserve the highest caliber of service, care, and results, and at Gustavo E. Galant, M.D, we're committed to providing all that and more. But don't take our word for it—see for yourself what our actual patients have to say about their experiences with us.

Dr Galante and his staff are amazingly kind and helpful. I felt like my health and well being were put as the top priority before the procedure. A few months after my procedure I developed a small lump in my breast. I called the office to have them check to see if it was no big deal, just scar tissue or something from my implant. Dr Galante saw me right away. He determined that it wasn’t normal and quickly arranged for me to be seen by a women’s diagnostic doctor. His nurse kept me calm as I heard him talk to the other doctor on how they’d coordinate care for my testing. Honestly he was a God send because I didn’t have to do a thing except pick up my phone to confirm the appointment. I was a wreck and he took that huge burden off my plate. In the end it was a teeny fluid bubble, but I’m so thankful that he was prompt in his response to my concern.

Dr. Galante and his staff have been EXCEPTIONAL throughout this process. I had breast augmentation and everything the doctor and nurse told me to expect was to a T. In the Operating room Dr. Galante made me feel so calm, comforted, and safe. He put on music of my choice, and with a smile held my hand and didn’t let go (until I fell asleep of course) Afterwards, recovery nurse absolutely AMAZING! Received a personal phone call from Dr. Galante that night just to follow up and see how I was feeling. Few days later, the surgical center checked on me to also see how Everything was progressing. My recovery is only 9 days post op and IM IN LOVE WITH THE RESULTS!! I did my research and I would do it ALL OVER again with this physician and staff! I have so many people to refer and honestly if you want superb results and patient care, go to THE BEST! Thank you Dr. Galante and staff.

My only regret is that I didn’t come here sooner!!! I was working so hard in the gym but couldn’t see results because my body was so rough from having babies. Dr. Galante changed all of that! It is miraculous to me that so many kind, hospitable, and encouraging people all work in one office! I was feeling really nervous and pretty insecure about the whole process, especially because I had received consultations from elsewhere and had a very negative experience. Dr. Galante and his staff were so uplifting and made me feel beautiful even before my procedure. He could charge a lot more for his work but doesn’t, I think because he just likes helping others feel beautiful. Every person in this office is gifted with making people feel welcome and cared for. Also, his work is incredible. He far exceeded my expectations for what I would look like after my surgery. I will never go anywhere else and I encourage all of my friends to see him. Thank you, Dr. Galante and staff for taking such good care of me! My results are amazing and just keep getting better.

Had a brow, neck and face lift. Dr. Galante did an excellent job. The doctor and staff was amazing. The scars you don't notice, can't believe how you have to point them out to see them. Can't wait till I can go back and have other procedures done. Their concerns are what you want and what will make you happy. I highly recommend the work of him and his staff.

Dr Galante is amazing! I recently had breast augmentation in Nov 2020. I am a mother of 3 children and work full time. I went to a total of 4 consultations with other surgeons and decided to go with Dr Galante. He took his time and went through everything. He answered my questions and concerns. I was so nervous on the day of surgery and is whole team of nurses, surgical tech, and CRNA made the process easy. I have no regrets and am very pleased with my results, he did exactly what I asked and I feel amazing!!

Flawless. I recently had breast implant removal and replacement with Dr. Galante, who came highly recommended, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. After many years, I was at a crossroads about having my implants removed or replacing them. At the consultation, Dr. Galante and Megan, nurse & patient coordinator, we’re attentive, informative and caring. They gave me the information, pros and cons, and didn’t try to sway my decision either way. I didn’t wait too long and decided to go for it and have removal and replacement. He is a truly gifted surgeon and put in just the right size for my frame. This breast surgery was a cinch the second time around. Wish I hadn’t waited. His staff are all very nice and professional. The nurses and anesthesiologists at the clinic all top notch too. It was win win! Thank you!

BEST decision I’ve ever made!! I have had two procedures done by Dr. Galante, including a breast augmentation and lower eyelid procedure, and have recommended many friends to him! I got my breasts done 7 years ago now and have never felt more confident in my own skin, I will be surprised if they ever need to be replaced. While the healing was a bit uncomfortable, I would do it a million times over again. They look SO GOOD. I can’t tell you how many “compliments” I’ve gotten on them. My lower eyelid lift was a few days ago & WOW the results already! My eyes look like they did before I hit puberty. Although I’m not fully healed I am already so happy. He is a true artist and extremely professional. Wonderful staff as well! Would highly recommend him and his practice!

It has been 7 months since my breast reduction and I couldn’t be happier! From beginning to end Dr. Galante and his entire staff have been outstanding. The high reviews and no consultation fee is what first drew me. From day one he makes you feel very comfortable and secure. He is patient and friendly. Most importantly, he is informative and he knows what he’s doing! I love my results. This was so worth it! Absolute best decision I could’ve made. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Dr. Galante and his staff are wonderful. This was my first plastic surgery experience and I’m extremely satisfied. The doctor and his staff are very thorough while explaining the procedure, costs, options, and results. I felt like Dr. Galante helped me make decisions of what size implants fit me best based on my “ideal” size and my body size/structure. He made sure to give me the most realistic size for my build. I felt like the pre-op directions were very straight forward and easy to understand and I never got nervous or felt like I had unanswered questions going into surgery. The post-op follow ups and appointments were also thorough and I felt comfortable being under Dr. Galante’s care. Never did I feel uncomfortable or uneasy about my decision, the procedure, or the professionalism of Dr Galante and his staff. To some people, undergoing a procedure like I did (along with all of the appointments) May make them feel uncomfortable, vulnerable, or uneasy but I promise that you will not get this feeling around Dr. Galante and his staff. They are EXTREMELY professional, helpful, informative, thorough, and friendly. I’m beyond satisfied with my procedure and experience and appreciate all of the care that I received from Dr. Galante and his staff. Thank you so much & I will definitely be back in the future.

I am beyond pleased with my results, the amazing, compassionate staff and of course the brilliant mind and magically talented hands of Dr Galante. From the minute you walk in for your very 1st consultation, to scheduling, to the Dr holding your hand as you are being put under anesthesia, to the phone call from him later that evening of surgery checking in on you, till your last post op appointment you feel comfort, ease and confident you chose the right doctor. He answered all my questions. Gave me realistic expectations. Told me exactly what to expect and when to expect it. I’m so happy he was able to give me back physically something I couldn’t achieve on my own and a new sense of confidence! He and his staff really are the best!

I had an abdominoplasty performed by Dr Galante. During the consultation he was very personal-able and knowledgeable. He gave me realistic expectations of my requested procedures. He was familiar with the tendency of ethnicities with more melanin to keloid. . And had a plan to minimize them if it happened. He patiently answered our questions and didn’t attempt to push unnecessary procedures. I was particularly impressed with his concern for my medical safety by explaining the risks of staying under anesthesia too long and getting multiple procedure at once. Office staff was also wonderful. Surgicenter was clean and the staff outstanding. My husband and I are totally thrilled with my results. Yes, I would do it again. Absolutely. I highly recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Galante and his staff were wonderful.They made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions. Everything that Dr. Galante told me to expect after my procedure was exactly correct ,which made things so much easier. And like he promised, he called me in the evening after surgery to check up on me. That was great. He did an exceptional job and I love the way I look. It's like living a dream.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Nonsurgical BOTOX Cosmetic is one of the most popular options among male patients, and with good reason. The treatment only requires about 30 minutes of your time, so you get back to your day quickly and easily, looking forward to lasting results for your crow’s feet and frown lines.

Laser Hair Removal

Many men feel self-conscious about unwanted hair on their back or chests and turn to laser hair removal as a welcome alternative to waxing. We use the advanced Lumenis LightSheer® laser platform for permanent hair reduction.

SkinPen® Microneedling

This popular, minimally invasive treatment is a go-to procedure for men who want to minimize the appearance of acne scars or wrinkles. It requires very little downtime—less than a day—and treatments can be completed during a lunch hour. Microneedling creates tiny punctures in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response and skin-firming collagen production. After a series of treatments, scars and wrinkles are replaced by new tissue.
