Breast Reduction

Dr. Rebecca Garza and Dr. Gus Galante’s breast reduction patients from Munster, Crown Point, and surrounding communities often say their procedures have significantly improved their lives and enhanced their self-esteem. Many say they waited too long to have the procedure. Dr. Garza and Dr. Galante, who are both board-certified plastic surgeons, perform breast reduction to help Indiana women who experience back, shoulder and neck pain because of their overly large breasts. This procedure can also relieve the physical restrictions, clothing issues and unwanted attention often associated with excessive breast size.

Talking It Over

In general, breast reduction can improve your quality of life. It offers a wide range of benefits including:

  • Enhanced self-esteem
  • Freedom from the physical pain and burden of heavy breasts
  • Relief from self-consciousness over unwanted attention
  • Increased ability to comfortably participate in physical activities such as jogging, horseback riding, and dancing

During your consultation, you can ask questions and discuss your goals and concerns with complete confidentiality. Either Dr. Garza or Dr. Galante will explain all of your options for surgery and possible outcomes. To help communicate your goals, you may want to bring pictures of breast sizes and shapes you like.

Procedure Specifics

You will be under general anesthesia, so you will sleep through your surgery. Dr. Galante and Dr. Garza normally perform breast reduction 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.

During the procedure, Dr. Galante or Dr. Garza removes excess skin, fat and tissue from the breasts. They also reposition the nipples and, if desired, reduce the size of the areolas (the darker skin surrounding the nipples). He then reshapes the breasts to make them physically smaller yet natural-looking.

After Your Breast Reduction Procedure

After surgery, you will have stitches and possibly drainage tubes to remove any excess fluids. Your breasts will be bandaged for support and to protect the incisions. You will receive detailed instructions about keeping the incisions clean, and the stitches will be removed within the first week.

Recovery from breast reduction surgery is usually less painful than most women expect. This is because the nerves and skin at the surgery site have been stretched considerably for a long time, which makes them less sensitive. You will be sore for a few days, and you can manage any discomfort with prescribed medication. You can resume light activities after a few days, depending on your level of soreness.

The perfect gift for the beautiful person in your life.
