Best Decision Ever...Chicago, IL

Absolutely the BEST investment I ever made! Dr. Galanis and his staff are top notch. Any questions or concerns I may have had were dissolved quickly. I had breast augmentation only about 2 weeks ago, but they already look amazing! The recovery time was minimal and the results exceeded all expectations. I highly recommend Dr. Galanis for any procedures that you may be considering.

Saggy, Sand Bags for 20 Years - Morton Grove, IL

18 Year Old Saline Implants - Northfield, IL

I had breast augmentation revision done with Dr Galanis in November of 2015. Dr Galanis was very professional, patient and took the time to explain the entire surgery to me. The office was clean and the staff, nurses and anesthesiologist were very attentive and on point. My recovery went very smoothly and I was up and running around soon after the surgery. I am extremely happy with the outcome and would recommend Dr Galanis to my friends and family.

He was timely in getting back to me if I had a question the nurse in his office was not able to answer. I...

29 Years Old, Botox Used in Forehead - Chicago, IL

When my face was still (eyebrows not raised) I didn't have any issues, however when I was smiling or being expressive, my forehead wrinkles became a lot more apparent, which bothered me. I was recommended to Dr. Galanis by a friend who had been getting Botox for years. Making an...
