Like many women following pregnancy and breastfeeding, this 28-year-old wasn't happy with the appearance of her breasts or abdomen. She was in good shape when she came for her consultation at our Valparaiso office, but she wanted larger breasts and a trimmer abdomen. I recommended a Mommy Makeover — combining a tummy tuck with breast augmentation — for the Indiana woman.

As you can see, the Mommy Makeover surgery can provide a bikini-ready body. The procedure is actually a combination of other procedures into one operation that can cut down on procedure and recovery time and surgical cost. The procedure most often includes a tummy tuck with or without liposuction, breast lift, and breast augmentation, but other options such as facial procedures can also be added. Dr. Galante is happy to discuss all the options available and make recommendations based on what he thinks would be appropriate, safe, and beautiful for each patient.

This patient went from a 34B-cup bra size to a full C cup, while significantly improving the look of her abdomen. Dr. Galante inserted MENTOR® high-profile 375 cc silicone implants during surgery at Lakeshore Surgicare. While slightly larger incisions are sometimes needed for silicone implants than saline, many women believe the silicone implants feel and look more natural. Dr. Galante uses a few different incision methods, but his most common choice are inframammary incisions hidden in the natural crease beneath the breasts, as this woman had.

If you are interested in a Mommy Makeover, request a consultation with Dr. Galante to find out more about the procedures. Or call (219) 322-3131 to schedule an appointment.
