Talking It Over
During your consultation, Dr. Garza or Dr. Galante will conduct an in-depth evaluation of your breast anatomy, medical history and goals. They will take into account specific details such as breast volume, nipple placement, breast symmetry and skin elasticity to determine which procedure(s) will best achieve the results you want.

Individual results may vary.
Dr. Galante and Dr. Garza frequently combine a breast lift with augmentation for Indiana women who want to correct sagging breasts and size issues.
Breast Lift With Augmentation
Breast augmentation with a breast lift at the same time increases breast volume and corrects sag. Patients typically wish to correct flat, deflated breasts and downward-pointing nipples—extremely common issues among women who have had children.
Breast augmentation patients have the option of either silicone gel or saline breast implants. Each type has advantages and drawbacks, and your surgeon will discuss them when developing your surgical plan.
A breast lift tightens the breast tissue and raises the breasts into a more upright position. A breast augmentation alone may suffice for women who only need a subtle lift to correct a small degree of sag. However, more moderate or severe sagging requires a lift.

A Reputation Built on Results
After Your Combined Breast Procedure
Combination breast surgery usually requires more recovery time than a single procedure. To speed up the recovery process, Dr. Galante and Dr. Garza usually have patients wear a surgical bra to support their breasts while they heal. They may also use drainage tubes to reduce fluid accumulation and swelling.
For the first week, you will notice some swelling, soreness and bruising. Our surgeons encourage their patients to avoid work or other physical activity during this time. Pain medication can reduce any discomfort.
Full recovery takes a few months, but most women feel like themselves again after 4 to 6 weeks. Most patients return to work after about a week, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for about 3 to 4 weeks.
The perfect gift for the beautiful person in your life.
