Age, genetics, hormone changes, pregnancy, and dramatic weight changes can affect the shape and feel of your breasts.

Whether you are considering breast surgery to refine your appearance, for physical comfort, or as part of post-cancer treatment, there are a number of plastic surgery solutions designed to benefit women and men alike.

The accomplished board-certified plastic surgeons at The Centre, P.C., offer comprehensive breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction and breast reconstruction procedures customized to your unique needs and aesthetic goals.

The recovery time from breast surgery varies based on your procedure and a number of individual factors.

Most breast procedures require patients to minimize physical activity for a couple days to a month after surgery, and then gradually ease back into their routines in the weeks that follow. Your surgeon will clear you for increased physical activity as appropriate based on your personal needs.

Prior to your treatment, your board-certified plastic surgeon will discuss your recovery expectations with you in detail and provide you with comprehensive post-surgery care guidelines.

If you live near our Mishawaka, Indiana, office and have questions about breast surgery, please contact The Centre, P.C., online or call us at (574) 968-9100 to schedule your consultation with one of our experienced and compassionate plastic surgeons.
