Two Heads Are Better Than One!Posted On: October 9, 2019
When Dr. Brad Bengtson welcomed Dr. David Alfonso to his Grand Rapids, MI, plastic surgery practice earlier this year, he didn’t create an either/or situation for patients seeking face, breast, or body surgery from a top-level surgeon. Like the best combinations in life—peanut butter and chocolate, cookies and cream, cheese and crackers—everyone gets to reap the benefits of answering the question: “Why not both?!”
Dr. Alfonso and Dr. Bengtson often work together to develop plans for patients, each approaching an individual case with his unique perspective, extensive experience, and high level of skill. This approach allows patients to get double the benefit. That’s two board-certified plastic surgeons applying their efforts to ensure natural-looking, proportional results.
But it doesn’t stop there! Dr. Alfonso will often work on body contouring while Dr. Bengtson completes breast surgery at the same time! This is a huge benefit for you, as a patient, as it allows you to get the results you want with less time spent in the operating room.
One of the main reasons the doctors’ partnership works so well is because the human body is not a bunch of separate, disconnected pieces. That song about how the leg bone’s connected to the hip bone has it right: Every feature influences and is impacted by what’s around it and more. Changing the width of the nose can alter the look of the entire face because of new angles and proportions. Decreasing volume in the breasts can make hips or buttocks stand out more as the lines of the silhouette emphasize different contours.
When it comes to combination procedures, Drs. Bengtson and Alfonso can take use this “two is better than one” strategy to visualize and create physical changes from top to bottom, front to back, each coordinating details to ensure the final result is harmonious.
While we’re on the subject, don’t forget that our two surgeons also share the center with a team of talented Aesthetic Experts, Master Medical Aestheticians, and Clinical Providers, whose nonsurgical treatments can complement and enhance the results of virtually any surgery. If you think two heads are better than one, how about a dozen?
