Concerned about her breast size and sagginess, this 46-year-old woman met with breast enhancement specialist Dr. Gus Galante for a consultation in his Schererville office. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, he is known throughout the region for his beautiful, natural-looking breast augmentation results. Many women who have lost breast volume after breastfeeding or weight loss visit him for this procedure.
After performing a physical examination, Dr. Galante determined that the patient would need a combined breast procedure that included breast augmentation with a lift at his Indiana practice. The goal of adding the lift was to raise and reshape the left breast. While breast implants do fill out lax breasts to a certain degree, in some cases it's also necessary to remove and tighten stretched breast skin in order to achieve a rounded shape.
Dr. Galante performed the breast procedure at the Lake Park Surgery Center in Hobart using general anesthetic. He created an incision along the breast crease through which he placed Mentor 300-cc smooth, round, moderate plus-profile implants. He used a submuscular implant placement, where the implants sit under both the breast tissue and the chest muscles. On the left breast, he performed a breast lift using a vertical (lollipop) incision to remove excess skin and create an attractive shape similar to the right breast.
The "after" photos show the patient's fuller, rounded, evenly shaped breasts. The breast lift scar will continue to fade and likely become barely noticeable. Combining breast procedures is significantly more complex than performing the procedures individually and requires an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Galante for successful outcomes such as this.
