This 23-year-old woman wanted breast implants to increase the volume of her A cup-sized breasts. She was a student at the time she came to our Schererville office, and she expressed a concern about the small breasts she had been unsatisfied with for years. She had a consultation with Dr. Galante, where they discussed her health history and her goals for surgery. Together, they opted for 425 cc silicone implants. During her breast augmentation surgery in Indiana, the implants were inserted beneath the pectoral muscles.
One of the benefits of placing the implants below the muscle is that women without significant breast tissue are less likely to have visible rippling, a complication more likely to occur with implants that are placed between the mammary glands and the pectoral muscles. Dr. Galante will sometimes use the "subglandular" placement technique, though, for patients who have more breast tissue before their surgeries. He believes it is important to customize each procedure to a patient's body, and he enjoys helping patients find surgical solutions that fit into their plans.
This patient was a 34 C/D cup after the breast enhancement surgery. As is clear in her photos, she got a dramatic change in the appearance of her breasts. These kinds of changes are what make breast augmentation so popular, with some of the highest satisfaction rates among all kinds of cosmetic surgery.
If you've been thinking about getting breast augmentation, request a consultation with Dr. Galante, or call his office at (219) 322-3131 to schedule an appointment.
