Gustavo E. Galante, M.D. - Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
JUVÉDERM® & Restylane®
Plump lips, well-defined cheekbones and smooth, supple skin are the components of an attractively youthful face. Underlying support structures responsible for these features break down with age, causing a sagging, wrinkled and sunken appearance. Dr. Gus Galante offers the dermal fillers JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® at his Indiana practice to help both men and women to look better and feel younger.
Injectable dermal fillers from board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gus Galante reduce wrinkles and add volume to lips and cheeks. Request a complimentary consultationRequest a complimentary consultation online with Dr. Gus Galante or call our Valparaiso or Schererville office at +1-800-721-3244.

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
Talking It Over
Dr. Galante will discuss your options for dermal fillers during your consultation. After examining your skin tone and facial structure, he will explain the injection procedure and outline the risks and benefits of each type of filler. He will also inform you of any medications and vitamins to avoid prior to your treatment.
Dr. Galante administers fillers on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home the same day. Treatments last less than 30 minutes, depending on the number of injections necessary for your desired results.
Dr. Galante offers the hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers JUVÉDERM and Restylane. HA is a complex sugar that attracts and binds with water to promote skin hydration and create volume. Because HA occurs naturally in the human body, neither of these fillers require an allergy test. JUVÉDERM results last up to 9 months; Restylane results last between 6 months and a year.
Most fillers are now made with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which greatly alleviates any discomfort associated with the injections. A topical anesthetic is also available if desired. HA fillers require little to no downtime or recovery, and many patients return to their daily routine immediately following their treatment. Bruising or swelling may occur and last for hours or days, but these are easily concealed with makeup.
Team up with an honest, approachable plastic surgeon who will work with you to achieve your goals. Look & feel better with Dr. Galante.
Both JUVÉDERM and Restylane have introduced breakthrough fillers with FDA approval. We offer both JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC and Restylane® Silk at our Indiana locations.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
VOLUMA XC represents the next generation in the JUVÉDERM family of fillers. It is the first filler approved by the FDA specifically to treat age-related volume loss in the cheeks and is clinically proven to last up to 2 years. It restores youthful volume for plump cheeks and a subtle, lifted look.
Restylane Silk is the first filler approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, as well as for general lip enhancement. It's formulated with lidocaine to increase comfort during treatment. The smoother, smaller particles that make up the gel filler lead to results that look natural in this delicate area of the face.
