What are the steps?
Step 1: Submitting the Contact Us Form
The first step in your journey to transformative plastic surgery with Universal Plastic Surgery is to reach out to our team. Simply visit our website at PlasticSurgeryCR.com and fill out the Contact Us form.

Once we receive your form, we will assign you access to your personalized patient portal.
Step 2: Accessing the Patient Portal
Shortly after submitting the Contact Us form, you will receive an email containing access to our patient portal. This invaluable resource provides a comprehensive overview of your desired procedure, including benefits, risks, estimated costs, and recovery time. It allows you to gain a deeper understanding of what to expect before, during, and after your surgery. It also allows you to know about your patient pre-op requirements and how to fulfill them prior to your surgery.
Step 3: Scheduling a Virtual Consultation
To ensure personalized care and address your unique needs, Universal Plastic Surgery offers free virtual consultations with our renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Madelein Centeno. During this conference call, you will have the opportunity to discuss your desired procedure, ask questions, and share your goals with Dr. Centeno. She will carefully assess your situation, provide expert advice, and present you with suitable treatment options.
Step 4: Fulfilling Pre-op Requirements
Before undergoing plastic surgery at Universal Plastic Surgery, there are a few pre-op requirements that need to be fulfilled. These typically include a medical evaluation and clearance, as well as lab work and an electrocardiogram (EKG). You can coordinate with your primary care physician or a local healthcare provider to complete these necessary steps. Once completed, simply send the relevant documentation to Dr. Centeno via the patient portal.
Step 5: Booking Airfare and Finalizing Surgery Details
With all the pre-op requirements successfully fulfilled, it’s time to finalize your surgery plans and set your selected surgery date. Universal Plastic Surgery recommends booking your airfare to San Jose, Costa Rica, well in advance to secure the best deals. However, it is important to first secure your surgery date prior to making your travel plans. Our patient experience team can provide recommendations and assistance in finding suitable accommodations during your stay. Also, make sure to account for suggested recovery time and your post-op consultations.
Step 6: Arriving at Universal Plastic Surgery in Costa Rica
On the day before your scheduled surgery, Dr. Madelein Centeno will schedule you for a pre-op consultation to finalize any details. On the day of surgery, you will be welcomed to our facility by our staff. They will guide you through the process and ensure your comfort and well-being. Our state-of-the-art facility is equipped with cutting-edge technology and staffed by a highly skilled medical team, providing you with the utmost care and safety.
