Breast Augmentation Surgeon in Indiana Highlights Fundraisers
Dr. Gus Galante helps women improve their appearance and their confidence with breast enhancement surgery, but his desire to improve lives extends further than his plastic surgery practice. He’s giving back to his community through charities.
Schererville, Indiana (PRWEB) December 4, 2010
This Fall has been a prime fundraising season for Dr. Gus Galante (http://www.galantebreastenhancement.com), a busy plastic surgeon who specializes in breast enhancement surgery like breast lifts and breast augmentation in Indiana. Dr. Galante is committed to improving the lives of the people in his community, and while his profession enables him to directly enhance peoples’ lives on a daily basis, he welcomes the opportunity to make a difference on a larger scale by regularly participating in a variety of local fundraisers.
“There are so many worthwhile causes in my community, it’s not difficult to fill up my weekends helping them out,” explains Dr. Galante. “The ‘Hospice Hustle’ is especially dear to me, as I am one of the event’s co-founders. This charity bike ride, now in its 6th year, benefits Hospice of the Calumet Area, which provides compassionate care for people facing an end-of-life illness. There was a 25-mile route for the novice rider and a more challenging 62-mile route for serious cyclists. This year, the ride took place on September 26, which turned out to be a beautiful, clear fall day. It was a great success with more riders than ever.”
Through breast enhancement surgery, Dr. Galante has improved the way his patients look and they way they look at themselves. One of the most life-changing procedures he performs is breast reduction in Indiana. Women who undergo this procedure often say that it gives them back their lives, allowing them to engage in exercise and aerobic activities like jogging and dancing comfortably and confidently once again.
“Because a woman’s breasts are often closely tied with her self-image, helping my patients attain the breast size and shape they envision for themselves can greatly improve their quality of life,” shares Dr. Galante. “It’s incredible the positive changes I’ve seen in my patients once they feel confident about the way they look. Whether they choose to reduce their breast size or increase it with breast implants, Indiana women often experience an increased sense of wellbeing when they can look in the mirror and like what they see.”
“Another important organization in our community is the Cancer Resource Centre which provides free support groups, mind-body programs, and educational resources to help cancer patients through their emotional recovery,” Dr. Galante explains. “This year, the 7th annual ‘Romp and Roll’ Walk and Fun Run raised over $144,000. Participants chose from a 1- or 2.5-mile family-style walk through Munster Community Park or a 5K Fun Run through the residential streets of Munster. I helped out the event this year by being a sponsor.”
Instead of personally participating in the “Romp and Roll” this year, Dr. Galante helped out another worthwhile cause as a guest auctioneer for the Albert’s Diamond Jewelers’ annual Multiple Sclerosis auction, which also took place on October 3. During this charity event Dr. Galante helped auction off donated gift baskets, jewelry, watches, and other items. Over $70,000 was raised to help fight MS.
“A huge reason for having my plastic surgery practice in Schererville and Valparaiso, Indiana is the sense of community,” Dr. Galante explains. “It’s rewarding to improve lives on a personal level through aesthetic enhancement and help many people through the variety of local charity events.”
