Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Treatments

When people think about plastic surgery, facial procedures and breast augmentation are often what comes to mind.

There are, however, a number of procedures and solutions available for the rest of the body. That’s important because some of the most common problem areas are located below the chest.

At The Centre, P.C., we offer a comprehensive range of plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments for the body. In fact, we like to think that our patients have endless possibilities for making positive changes.

By working with our board-certified plastic surgeons and medical professionals, we’re able to create sensitive, specific, and highly customized solutions to meet each person’s unique needs.

We understand that people decide on cosmetic surgery for many different reasons. Our services range from elective cosmetic procedures to reconstructive surgery for patients who’ve suffered injury, illness, birth defects, or disease.

You live your whole life in your own body. We believe you deserve to live that life in comfort, confidence, happiness, and health. An experienced South Bend cosmetic surgeon at The Centre can help you achieve your goals and step into newfound contentment and well being.

Choosing the Right Plastic Surgery or Cosmetic Treatments

Modern medical science makes it possible for almost anyone to achieve incredible changes in the way they look and feel. There are so many options available, in fact, that new patients often feel overwhelmed when trying to choose the best treatments.

To aid in that process, The Centre P.C. offers introductory consultations for anyone interested in plastic surgery or cosmetic treatments for the body.

Scheduling a consultation allows you to talk directly with a South Bend cosmetic surgeon so that you can begin to understand how our services might meet your needs.

All of our professionals emphasize privacy, respect, and discretion. Scheduling a consultation can help you feel at ease. Of course, having a little information beforehand can’t hurt either.

That’s why we’ve created an overview of our most popular body-oriented cosmetic surgery options below. Please keep in mind that we can offer an extensive range of custom-made solutions that go beyond the services highlighted on this page.

Body Lifts: Plastic Surgery for Those Who’ve Lost Weight

Significant weight loss is a major health and lifestyle accomplishment, but it often leaves excess skin behind (or otherwise results in undesirable body shapes).

Body lifts are a specific and highly effective form of body contouring, uniquely designed to correct some of the issues created by weight loss. Learn more.

Liposuction

At The Centre, P.C., we offer newly advanced methods of liposuction that use less pressure and cause less bruising and swelling than traditional lipoplasty.

Liposuction is an ideal option for men and women who are within their target weight but want to target specific pockets or deposits of fat.  Learn more.

BodyTite Body Contouring

BodyTite is an advanced body-contouring procedure that provides superior skin tightening and fat reduction compared with standard liposuction and other surgical procedures.

This procedure is less invasive than traditional liposuction and for the right patients, it can deliver results that could only be achieved with more invasive procedures. Click here to learn more about BodyTite Body Contouring.

Cellulite Reduction

Our board-certified plastic surgeons use the very latest in cutting-edge, FDA-approved technology to target structural problems that cause cellulite to build up beneath the skin. Learn more about our Cellulaze cellulite reduction procedures.

Thigh Lift

Reshaping the thigh requires expert attention not only to fat under the skin but also to the skin itself. When you work with a South Bend cosmetic surgeon in our treatment center, you can count on improved lower-body proportions and smoother skin laxity. Learn more.

Tummy Tuck

The tummy tuck procedure, more formally known as abdominoplasty, is intended for men and women who have had significant changes in tummy size or skin elasticity and are unlikely to achieve a return to normal conditions through other procedures. Learn more.

Labiaplasty

A labiaplasty can correct cosmetic or functional issues relating to the labia minora. Every vaginal rejuvenation procedure is unique and requires careful discussion and planning with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. Learn more

Skin Care

The skin is a body part too, even if people don’t always think of it that way. In fact, clinically speaking, the skin is the largest organ in the human body! It makes sense, then, to take good care of it. The Centre, P.C. offers a wide range of skin treatments, therapies, and procedures. Learn more.
