5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants
This was my first time undergoing surgery and I had breast implants, rhinoplasty, as well as a chin implant. I consulted with 7 (yes 7) physicians all in the Chicago area. Dr. Galiano was by far the most caring and patient with me and he went above and beyond to answer all of my questions and concerns. I went back to see him a few more times before scheduling the surgery, and I never felt...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I'm gearing up for my breast reduction surgery here in Chicago - 13 days and counting! My surgeon also includes liposuction of the underarm area at the same time, which I am very thankful for. I've also opted to have him perform liposuction of my entire trunk (full back and bra line, upper and lower abdomen, upper flanks) during the procedure, and may also write a separate review for the...
5 out of 5 stars Liposuction
I have another review going for my breast reduction and liposuction together, but thought I'd post my experience specifically with the liposuction here separately, for those of you who may have similar body types and curiosities. Please see my other review if you're curious about the reduction outcome: https://www.realself...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
After delivering five babies all between eight and 9 pounds I was left sad and depressed due to the havoc it caused on my body...especially my abdominal region! Dr. Galliano, restored my abdominal region and made it better than it ever was! I have never in my adult life worn a bikini until this past spring break, and I have to say it looked amazing. My husband cannot stop complementing Dr....
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
I wanted to write this review of Dr. Galiano and his staff because they all made my choice to have septo/rhino plasty a breeze…literally, they are amazing!! From the very beginning I was unsure about having this procedure, yet it was something that I can remember talking about ever since I was a teenager (I am now in my upper 30’s with 2 kids). Dr. Galiano immediately made me feel at ease. He ...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I'm a 37yr old mom of two energetic boys ages 2 and 4. They are my everything. So for me, this was not so much about cosmetic (although a bonus) as it was about my feeling normal again. After 15 hours of labor with rare "coupling" contractions (unlike normal contractions where the body gets a needed "rest" period before the next one, mine were 'back to back' NO rest periods in between. I had...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I had no doubt when I had my first consultation with Dr. Galiano that he would be the doctor I chose for my breast augmentation. Needless to say, I have had absolutely no regrets about that, absolutely EVERYTHING about my procedure has gone so smoothly!! Plus I could not be happier with my results, and I am only at 7 weeks post-op. I went from a 32A (if that) with slightly constricted breasts...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I can't begin to thank all you wonderful ladies for writing reviews and relating your stories on realself, it's been so good to know I'm not alone in the journey to smaller, more appropriately sized breasts! Similar to many of you, I developed early, at 11 I outgrew my training bra by leaps and bounds, and was a 36B. I grew to 36D in high school, and stayed there till I went on the pill...
So, I've finally taken the leap of faith and decided to do something I've been battling myself with doing for the longest- get a breast reduction. I haven't always had big breast. It was like one day, I woke up with huge breasts when I was about 20 years old. And, they've been a pain in the ass every since. I have crazy back and chest pains, can't properly exercise, can't wear cute revealing...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
Dr. Galiano is the best. I had a breast lift with implants 2 years ago by a different doctor in Chicago. With the first surgery I felt pressure to not go as large as I actually wanted. Within a few months, it was obvious that I did not get the results I was looking for. At two years the scars were very unsightly. I had no upper pole and was experiencing significant sagging I had spent a...
