Mary's Breast Lift

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Back when she was in her 20s, Mary considered herself one of the lucky ones having naturally full, shapely breasts. She also realized that time, gravity, and childbirth would likely cause her breasts to sag, and therefore was open to the idea of undergoing cosmetic surgery some day. Now a stay-at-home mom in her 30s, Mary continues to take pride in her body. Because she enjoys an active lifestyle that includes walking her dogs and exercising at the gym, it's been easy for her to maintain her shape.

An Effective Solution

When a girlfriend underwent breast reduction surgery, Mary was impressed with how great her friend looked in clothes. Her breasts were firm, full, and just the right size. Seeing the changes motivated Mary to pursue breast lift surgery for herself. Years after gaining and losing weight from the birth of her daughter, Mary's breasts had lost their perkiness and sagged.

Two years later when the time was right, Mary began actively searching for a plastic surgeon. Her friend said that while she was happy she had cosmetic breast surgery she wouldn't recommend her surgeon because he didn't do a good job aesthetically. So Mary obtained the names of two reputable surgeons from a contact in the local Munster medical community. She was disappointed when she called the first surgeon on the list. His staff was cold and made Mary feel like she was bothering them just by calling.

Positive Impressions

Mary then contacted the office of Indiana plastic surgeon Dr. Gus Galante and experienced a refreshing contrast. From the start of her intake call Mary felt valued and welcomed. Dr. Galante's staff was friendly, helpful, and informative. They scheduled her consultation at a convenient time and promptly sent her an information packet. "They made me feel comfortable right away," Mary recalls. "The whole staff was so friendly and happy to hear from me."

When she met Dr. Galante himself, she instantly felt at ease talking with him about the changes she'd like to make. He thoroughly answered all of her questions without making her feel rushed. "I really appreciate his honesty. I wanted to have all kinds of things done, but he told me that I didn't need all that," said Mary. "He said a breast lift would be enough to make the improvements I wanted. If it's not right for you, he'll tell you."

Mary went home, talked it over with her boyfriend, and promptly scheduled her breast lift surgery with Dr. Galante. She was confident she had found the right surgeon with the right solution.

Smooth Surgery & Recovery

The breast lift surgery at Munster Same Day Surgery Center went smoothly. Mary was put under general anesthesia and only remembers waking up afterwards. Dr. Galante performed her breast lift using the anchor technique where the incision follows outside edge of the areola, runs straight down, and horizontally along the breast fold. While she was sore afterwards, Mary only needed help from her sister for the first 3 days. Her recovery was quick and trouble free.

Better than Ever

Immediately, Mary was thrilled with how Dr. Galante restored the firm, perky look of her breasts. "They're perfect," she says, "and even make me look thinner." Mary continues, "After my surgery I went out and bought all kinds of clothes I could never wear before, like strapless dresses and fitted t-shirts." Three months after her surgery, she's also amazed that the scars are barely noticeable. "Dr. Galante was so meticulous that you can't even tell there is a scar around my nipple. I haven't lost any sensitivity and can still feel everything."

When asked what she would say to those who are in search of a cosmetic surgeon Mary quickly answers, "Dr. Galante is wonderful. I'd recommend him for any procedure."
