Breast Lift

If you’re like most women, your breasts will begin to sag over time, for reasons that may include age, breastfeeding, weight changes, and genetics. Mastopexy, often called a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. A breast lift in Indiana with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gus Galante can help your breasts have a more youthful, perky shape again.

If you live in Northwest Indiana and have breast lift questions, request a complimentary consultation online, or schedule an appointment at Dr. Galante’s Schererville or Valparaiso office by calling (800) 721-3244.

Talking It Over

Many women seek breast lift surgery to rejuvenate the appearance of their breasts. Improvements include:

  • Raising saggy, stretched out breasts to a youthful position
  • Restoring a rounded, perky breast shape
  • Directing nipples upwards
  • Reducing the size of enlarged or stretched areolas

You can discuss your goals and expectations at your consultation. If you have pictures of the size and shape of breasts you like, bring them with you to help communicate your goals for surgery. Dr. Galante is very approachable and will encourage you to ask questions. Your peace of mind and confidence are of the utmost importance.

Procedure Specifics

During a breast lift, Dr. Galante raises the breasts by removing excess skin, fat and other tissue. He also repositions the nipples and, if desired, reduces the size of the areolas (the darker skin surrounding the nipples). He then reshapes the breasts to make them rounder and more youthful looking.

In most cases, Dr. Galante will use one of 3 common breast lift techniques:

  • Anchor-shaped incision
  • Vertical or lollipop incision
  • Concentric (doughnut) incision

You will be under general anesthesia, so you will sleep through your surgery. Dr. Galante normally performs breast lift surgery as an outpatient procedure, meaning you can return home the same day. However, you will need someone to drive you home and care for you for the first few days.

Breast Lift With Augmentation

Often a woman’s dissatisfaction with her breasts is not only due to sagginess; breasts that sag commonly do not have enough volume to achieve a full, rounded shape. Dr. Galante may recommend a combined approach to breast lift using breast implants. By performing breast lift in conjunction with breast augmentation, patients can enjoy fuller, more youthful-looking breasts.

Although combining these 2 procedures presents additional challenges, Dr. Galante has the surgical skills and experience to achieve satisfying results while devoting special attention to patient comfort and safety. He will thoroughly review your options with you before determining the most effective combination of procedures for your unique goals. Your peace of mind and confidence in your decision are of the utmost importance to Dr. Galante.

After Your Breast Lift Procedure

After surgery, Dr. Galante will dress your incisions with light bandages. He will give you detailed post-surgical instructions and prescribe medication for any discomfort. Your breasts will be sore for approximately 3 days. You will need to wear a support bra for at least a few weeks and up to a few months. You’ll need to avoid wearing underwire bras until you heal completely.

Breast lift patients should limit active movement for at least the first few days to avoid pulling the stitches. Although you can resume light activities in 7 to 10 days, you should avoid strenuous movements and heavy lifting for several weeks. As with all surgery, breast lift surgery will leave scars, but they usually fade within the first year.

I had a mommy makeover 3 weeks ago and I feel amazing. Dr Galante and his staff are so friendly and make you feel comfortable and amazing! they answered every question and I felt confident leading up to my surgery day! Dr Galante held my hand and comforted me in the operating room before going under and it felt like genuine care. You can really tell he not only loves what he does, but cares for his patients! he’s also great at it. My incision was done so neatly and perfect. You can tell he took his time to make it as nice as possible. My body looks great! And I have my confidence back thanks to Dr Galante!

Dr Galante and his staff are amazingly kind and helpful. I felt like my health and well being were put as the top priority before the procedure. A few months after my procedure I developed a small lump in my breast. I called the office to have them check to see if it was no big deal, just scar tissue or something from my implant. Dr Galante saw me right away. He determined that it wasn’t normal and quickly arranged for me to be seen by a women’s diagnostic doctor. His nurse kept me calm as I heard him talk to the other doctor on how they’d coordinate care for my testing. Honestly he was a God send because I didn’t have to do a thing except pick up my phone to confirm the appointment. I was a wreck and he took that huge burden off my plate. In the end it was a teeny fluid bubble, but I’m so thankful that he was prompt in his response to my concern.

Dr. Galante and his staff have been EXCEPTIONAL throughout this process. I had breast augmentation and everything the doctor and nurse told me to expect was to a T. In the Operating room Dr. Galante made me feel so calm, comforted, and safe. He put on music of my choice, and with a smile held my hand and didn’t let go (until I fell asleep of course) Afterwards, recovery nurse absolutely AMAZING! Received a personal phone call from Dr. Galante that night just to follow up and see how I was feeling. Few days later, the surgical center checked on me to also see how Everything was progressing. My recovery is only 9 days post op and IM IN LOVE WITH THE RESULTS!! I did my research and I would do it ALL OVER again with this physician and staff! I have so many people to refer and honestly if you want superb results and patient care, go to THE BEST! Thank you Dr. Galante and staff.

My only regret is that I didn’t come here sooner!!! I was working so hard in the gym but couldn’t see results because my body was so rough from having babies. Dr. Galante changed all of that! It is miraculous to me that so many kind, hospitable, and encouraging people all work in one office! I was feeling really nervous and pretty insecure about the whole process, especially because I had received consultations from elsewhere and had a very negative experience. Dr. Galante and his staff were so uplifting and made me feel beautiful even before my procedure. He could charge a lot more for his work but doesn’t, I think because he just likes helping others feel beautiful. Every person in this office is gifted with making people feel welcome and cared for. Also, his work is incredible. He far exceeded my expectations for what I would look like after my surgery. I will never go anywhere else and I encourage all of my friends to see him. Thank you, Dr. Galante and staff for taking such good care of me! My results are amazing and just keep getting better.

Had a brow, neck and face lift. Dr. Galante did an excellent job. The doctor and staff was amazing. The scars you don't notice, can't believe how you have to point them out to see them. Can't wait till I can go back and have other procedures done. Their concerns are what you want and what will make you happy. I highly recommend the work of him and his staff.

Dr Galante is amazing! I recently had breast augmentation in Nov 2020. I am a mother of 3 children and work full time. I went to a total of 4 consultations with other surgeons and decided to go with Dr Galante. He took his time and went through everything. He answered my questions and concerns. I was so nervous on the day of surgery and is whole team of nurses, surgical tech, and CRNA made the process easy. I have no regrets and am very pleased with my results, he did exactly what I asked and I feel amazing!!

Flawless. I recently had breast implant removal and replacement with Dr. Galante, who came highly recommended, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. After many years, I was at a crossroads about having my implants removed or replacing them. At the consultation, Dr. Galante and Megan, nurse & patient coordinator, we’re attentive, informative and caring. They gave me the information, pros and cons, and didn’t try to sway my decision either way. I didn’t wait too long and decided to go for it and have removal and replacement. He is a truly gifted surgeon and put in just the right size for my frame. This breast surgery was a cinch the second time around. Wish I hadn’t waited. His staff are all very nice and professional. The nurses and anesthesiologists at the clinic all top notch too. It was win win! Thank you!

BEST decision I’ve ever made!! I have had two procedures done by Dr. Galante, including a breast augmentation and lower eyelid procedure, and have recommended many friends to him! I got my breasts done 7 years ago now and have never felt more confident in my own skin, I will be surprised if they ever need to be replaced. While the healing was a bit uncomfortable, I would do it a million times over again. They look SO GOOD. I can’t tell you how many “compliments” I’ve gotten on them. My lower eyelid lift was a few days ago & WOW the results already! My eyes look like they did before I hit puberty. Although I’m not fully healed I am already so happy. He is a true artist and extremely professional. Wonderful staff as well! Would highly recommend him and his practice!

Dr. Galante and his staff are wonderful. This was my first plastic surgery experience and I’m extremely satisfied. The doctor and his staff are very thorough while explaining the procedure, costs, options, and results. I felt like Dr. Galante helped me make decisions of what size implants fit me best based on my “ideal” size and my body size/structure. He made sure to give me the most realistic size for my build. I felt like the pre-op directions were very straight forward and easy to understand and I never got nervous or felt like I had unanswered questions going into surgery. The post-op follow ups and appointments were also thorough and I felt comfortable being under Dr. Galante’s care. Never did I feel uncomfortable or uneasy about my decision, the procedure, or the professionalism of Dr Galante and his staff. To some people, undergoing a procedure like I did (along with all of the appointments) May make them feel uncomfortable, vulnerable, or uneasy but I promise that you will not get this feeling around Dr. Galante and his staff. They are EXTREMELY professional, helpful, informative, thorough, and friendly. I’m beyond satisfied with my procedure and experience and appreciate all of the care that I received from Dr. Galante and his staff. Thank you so much & I will definitely be back in the future.

I am beyond pleased with my results, the amazing, compassionate staff and of course the brilliant mind and magically talented hands of Dr Galante. From the minute you walk in for your very 1st consultation, to scheduling, to the Dr holding your hand as you are being put under anesthesia, to the phone call from him later that evening of surgery checking in on you, till your last post op appointment you feel comfort, ease and confident you chose the right doctor. He answered all my questions. Gave me realistic expectations. Told me exactly what to expect and when to expect it. I’m so happy he was able to give me back physically something I couldn’t achieve on my own and a new sense of confidence! He and his staff really are the best!

I had an abdominoplasty performed by Dr Galante. During the consultation he was very personal-able and knowledgeable. He gave me realistic expectations of my requested procedures. He was familiar with the tendency of ethnicities with more melanin to keloid. . And had a plan to minimize them if it happened. He patiently answered our questions and didn’t attempt to push unnecessary procedures. I was particularly impressed with his concern for my medical safety by explaining the risks of staying under anesthesia too long and getting multiple procedure at once. Office staff was also wonderful. Surgicenter was clean and the staff outstanding. My husband and I are totally thrilled with my results. Yes, I would do it again. Absolutely. I highly recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Galante and his entire staff are amazing at what they do! They were all so nice and informative while giving me the best possible care for my breast augmentation, while even holding my hand through anesthesia. They called frequently to check up on me after surgery and made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. Dr. Galante was so easy to trust and I am very happy with my results!

It’s important to remember that a combined breast procedure requires a bit more recuperation time than a singular procedure would, and may also require the use of surgical drains. Dr. Galante wants you to be comfortable and safe during your own recuperation, and he will give you specific post-op instructions prior to your surgery.
