Help Support Other Women Through Breast Oasis
Following breast augmentation in Indiana, many of our patients discover they have a number of gently used bras that no longer fit. The same may be true for you if you’ve recently received breast implants, had breast reduction surgery or lost a significant amount of weight.
If you have bras you can no longer wear, we have a solution for you that can benefit other women as well. Our office has joined forces with Breast Oasis, a charitable organization that helps women who can’t afford clean, comfortable, well-fitting bras. Breast Oasis collects, cleans and certifies donated bras, then makes them available locally to women in need.
Breast Oasis was established in 2009 by a plastic surgeon who wanted to encourage women undergoing physical changes through cosmetic surgery to help other women in transition. Bras are collected, laundered and then gift-wrapped for delivery.
If you have like-new or gently used bras to donate, you can drop them off at either of our offices or mail them to one of our addresses below.

Summer Skin Needs Extra Care
The summer season is filled with great outdoor activities, but it also means a lot more time outside in the sun. So, it’s important to give your skin a little extra love this time of year.
We can help you do just that with VIVITÉ®, a physician-strength skin care line, which is available in our office.
VIVITÉ was created by Allergan, a specialty pharmaceutical company that uses an ultra-charged formula to infuse the skin with a glycolic compound and antioxidants that help optimize skin rejuvenation. The extremely small size of the molecules in VIVITÉ’s special formulas allow for easier and deeper penetration and helps promote the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and epidermal growth factor, all of which are extremely important for maintaining healthy, glowing skin.
The antioxidants in VIVITÉ help protect skin from harmful free radicals, which can cause premature aging. And last but not least, VIVITÉ products contain one of the most effective exfoliating systems available.
And The Winners Are…
We have selected the 2 winners in our Patient Referral program – Pam and Christie!
When someone refers a patient to us and the patient schedules surgery, the referring person’s name is entered in a drawing. The drawings are done several times a year, and those whose names are selected win prizes.
Congratulations, Pam and Christie! They have each won a $100 gift card for Victoria’s Secret. Enjoy!
