So you're exploring the possibility of having a non-surgical or surgical cosmetic procedure. Ultimately, it comes down to trust, safety, and outcomes, and there are a number of options in finding the right Plastic Surgeon in Grand Rapids for you.
However, once you discover Dr. Brad Bengtson, you'll find there are numerous reasons that make the Bengtson Center, located in downtown Grand Rapids, the premiere and obvious choice.
1. Why Dr. B
Who the plastic surgeon is going to be is a major factor when deciding to have a cosmetic procedure. Dr. Bengtson, who likes to go by “Dr. B” – which further reflects his laid-back nature – has been in practice just over 20 years and is a sought-after Teacher/Educator, Researcher, and Plastic Surgeon throughout the world.
With over 4,000 Breast and 5,000 Liposuction procedures under his belt, along with expertise in Facial Rejuvenation, Botox and Fillers, Dr. Bengtson is a doctor who gets the procedure done right the first time. Read more on Dr. B here.
2. “Too good to be true, but too real to be fake”
At Bengtson Center, Dr. Bengtson's goal is to help you attain a natural and proportional outcome for your Face, Breast, and Body. As Dr. B says, “The best plastic surgery is in the patients who you can't tell have had it!”
For example, those looking at Breast Augmentation will undergo a comprehensive evaluation, including West Michigan's only VECTRA 3D Imaging and Simulation that helps patients choose the best implant size, shape, and profile for their breast and body while delivering the results consistently.
3. VECTRA 3D Imaging & Simulation
Ever want to know what you will look like following your procedure before having it? Bengtson Center is the first and only current practice in West Michigan utilizing VECTRA 3D Imaging. A 3D image is taken of your face, breast, or body and allows Dr. B to simulate a variety of outcomes that fit your body dimensionally. It's a chance for patients to see what they would look like after their breast augmentation or mastopexy. It's a chance to take a peek at your Afters…Before!
4. How does your Plastic Surgeon recommend following your Breast Implants long term?
The FDA recommends MRI follow-up of your Breast Implants, typically costing thousands of dollars, at 3, 5, and 7 years, usually paid by you. The Bengtson Center is the only Grand Rapids Plastic Surgery practice to offer in-house surveillance for all implant patients with their exclusive hi resolution ultrasound technology.
Although uncommon, you'll receive $3,500 toward replacement in the first 10 years for any implant shell complications, and implant replacement for life. Most national studies show a 25- to 30-percent rate in the first 3 years, but Dr. B's revision rate is only 3 percent.
5. Expertise in Breast Revision Surgery
Twenty-five percent of Dr. Bengtson's Breast related surgeries are revisional from other Plastic Surgeons regionally and throughout the world. He is a Leader, Researcher, Innovator, and Educator on Breast Revision techniques, and has one of the top five practices in the world utilizing tissues and scaffolds to fix and reinforce weakened tissues and breast surgery complications using Seri Scaffold and Strattice.
Check out some of his publications and teachings throughout the world. Sophisticated patients understand: “If Dr. Bengtson can fix complex complications, that's who I want to do my surgery the first time!”.
When deciding where to go, and who to see for you cosmetic surgery, it's important to evaluate your options. You'll find we not only have your checklist covered, but we'll have you covered for things you haven't even thought of yet.
At the Bengtson Center, we're about providing a safe, effective, exceptional experience and outcome, and getting it right the first time.
