Valentine's Special

Deciding to move forward with plastic surgery in South Bend can be a life-changing option. Still, it is a choice that you will want to be fully informed about before making.

When exploring your surgical options, it is essential to determine if you would be a suitable candidate for plastic surgery and ensure that you understand the entire process, from the initial consultation to the aftercare. The Centre, P.C. can help you explore your options and create a plan to help you achieve your goals.

Is Plastic Surgery Right for Me?

Plastic surgery could help you address self-confidence issues that may result from injury, illness, or something you have struggled with for your entire life. The results of a plastic surgery procedure could help increase your confidence, improve your physical and mental well-being, and give you a new sense of empowerment.

However, not all procedures are suitable for everyone. For example, pregnancy and childbirth can significantly impact your body. Therefore, it is advisable to wait for procedures like tummy tucks or breast augmentations until you finish this phase of your life, to ensure the best results possible.

To be a suitable candidate for plastic surgery, you should be in good health and not have any medical condition that might negatively impact your recovery. While you may be eager to see your results, you should also be realistic about your expectations. Meeting with an experienced plastic surgeon in South Bend is essential for any procedure since they can determine whether you would be a good candidate for a specific treatment.

Understanding the Plastic Surgery Process

Surgical procedures take place over multiple steps. From your initial consultation to post-procedure care, our board-certified plastic surgeons at The Centre, P.C., will be with you every step of the way.

The Consultation

The plastic surgery process begins with a consultation. A consultation is your opportunity to ask a surgeon questions about the procedure and inform them about your goals.

One of our plastic surgeons will get to know you, review your medical history, and assess your aesthetic goals so we can create a personalized surgery plan to help you meet your goals in the safest way possible.

Before the Procedure

Once you have decided on a procedure, our team will advise you about any pre-surgical care you must follow, like discontinuing certain medications before your surgery. We understand that this is a big choice, and you are likely to feel many emotions. Our South Bend team will be available to answer questions, offer support and comfort, and make sure you have what you need throughout your plastic surgery journey.

After the Procedure

When your procedure is complete, we will help you recover by sending clear aftercare instructions, such as wearing supportive garments or bandages for a certain amount of time or sleeping in a specific position to help you heal quickly. You will also have several follow-up appointments with your plastic surgeon, so we can monitor your recovery and ensure you are healing well.

Depending upon the type of plastic surgery you undergo, it can take several weeks for the swelling to subside and for you to see the results of your procedure.
