Guess Who Just Won Another Honor?

Posted On: May 25, 2018

You’re reading the Bengtson Center blog, so it’s probably no surprise to you to discover that Grand Rapids plastic surgeon Dr. Brad Bengtson was recently named as the recipient of another award: The RealSelf 500. He received the award for his ongoing commitment to patient education and excellent patient reviews.

RealSelf is a website that draws 10 million monthly visitors, all of them seeking information about elective cosmetic procedures. The portal allows patients to share their own experiences, as well as connect with doctors who can answer questions directly. Patients can also leave starred reviews and comments about their experience with specific doctors.

The RealSelf 500, announced on April 25, 500 board-certified doctors determined to be the most active and receiving the highest ratings on the site. This group represents the top five percent of doctors in the online marketplace.

Dr. Bengtson is committed to patient education, and selection criteria for the honor included patient reviews—both quality and quantity, the doctor’s engagement with site users, and before-and-after photos made public by the doctor. Dr. Bengtson has a 4.9-star rating from 82 reviews and has provided 243 expert answers—at least as of this blog post! More are surely on the way!

Dr. Bengtson is also one of only seven Michigan doctors to make the list, of which only he and one other are fellows of the American College of Surgeons.

Even just a quick scan of the reviews shows what his patients think of his work: “I finally feel real and look amazingly natural.” “Dr. Bengtson and his staff are simply the best!” “I couldn’t be happier!” “I wouldn’t go anywhere else!” “Amazing!”

These comments are for everything from breast implant revision handled directly by Dr. Bengtson (a specialty, as women know to come to him if they are unhappy with their results from a prior operation with another surgeon) to BOTOX® injections made by one of his personally trained Aesthetic Experts.
