Natural, Exceptional, Proportionate Results

At Bengtson Center, our goal is to help you attain natural, proportional outcomes for your face, breasts, and body. As Dr. B says, “The best plastic surgery is in the patients you can’t tell have had it.”

For example, those considering breast augmentation will undergo a comprehensive evaluation that includes VECTRA 3D Imaging and Simulation, which helps patients choose the optimal implant size, shape, and profile for their breast and body. In the words of one of our former breast augmentation patients, your results will look "too good to be true, but too real to be fake!"

Implant Tracking and Follow-Up

The FDA recommends MRI follow-up of breast implants at 3, 5, and 7 years, which can cost thousands of dollars and is usually paid for by the patient.

The Bengtson Center is the only practice that offers in-office tracking for all implant patients. Although uncommon, if you should need a replacement implant in the first 10 years following your augmentation, you’ll receive $3,500 toward that replacement from Dr. B for any implant shell complications, and implant replacement for life. Most national studies show up to a 25 to 30% breast augmentation revision rate in the first 3 years, but Dr. B’s revision rate is only 3%!

VECTRA 3D Imaging & Simulation

Have you ever wanted to know what you would look like following a procedure before having it? The Bengtson Center is the first practice in West Michigan to utilize VECTRA 3D Imaging and Simulation. A 3-D image taken of your face, breast, or body allows Dr. B and Dr. M to simulate a variety of outcomes that best fit your body dimensions. It gives you a perfect chance to take a peek at your afters ... before.

Personalized Services

Personalized Concierge Services

At the Bengtson Center, you’ll find a dedicated team to give you an exceptional, individualized experience every time you visit.

A concierge will meet you at the door, welcome you, and direct you to the skin care center, consultation room, or treatment area. The Bengtson Center even has a VIP entrance for post-surgical patients, and out-of-towners can take advantage of special partnerships we have with the JW Marriott. We also offer concierge pampered car services from the Gerald R. Ford International airport.

Fast-Trak RecoveryProgram

Dr. B understands the importance of your recovery and minimizing downtime, so he has helped develop and promote a Fast-Trak Recovery Program, which has truly transformed the patient recovery process.

According to Dr. B, "Fast-Trak involves setting specific expectations for patients, performing the procedure with no bleeding or blunt trauma to tissues, and immediate stretching and return to normal activities of daily living. I expect to have breast patients out the night of surgery at dinner, a movie, or their child’s sports activity." These techniques allow more than 90 percent of patients to recover within 24 to 48 hours.
