At 66, this woman didn't like the appearance of her waistline. As seen in the "before" photos, her abdomen draped over her waistline, so Dr. Galante recommended liposuction at an Indiana surgical facility.
Although retired and in her 60s, the patient was in overall good health and had realistic expectations for what a cosmetic procedure such as liposuction could accomplish. She is an excellent example of what surgery can do for older individuals. Many people consider body contouring surgeries such as liposuction to be the exclusive desire of younger people who are very body conscious. But Dr. Galante likes to remind patients that there are numerous cosmetic surgery options for people of all ages that can help them improve their self-image and confidence.
Dr. Galante puts a major emphasis on safety in all surgical procedures, and this is especially true for older patients who may have more concerns about such operating aspects as anesthesia. He addresses all these concerns at preoperative consultations to make sure both he and the patient feel completely at ease and confident about surgery.
Dr. Galante performs liposuction at a few different Indiana surgical facilities, where the procedure can be done with local anesthesia with sedation or with general anesthesia. Liposuction can be a very effective option for concentrated areas of stubborn fat, such as on the hips, thighs, and abdomen, as this patient had.
As is clear in her photos, her procedure produced dramatic slimming results.
If you are in good health and are thinking about cosmetic surgery, request a consultation with Dr. Galante, or call his office at (219) 322-3131 to schedule an appointment.
