Imagine Taking Off for a Vacation in Michigan and Returning Home as a BRAND NEW YOU! If you're taking a journey of personal transformation, there's no reason you can't enjoy yourself along the way! At the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, we understand it takes commitment to choose plastic surgery in the first place, let alone consider traveling.

But we also realize that in the end, the results you desire make just about any journey worthwhile—especially since they can last a lifetime! Leaving home doesn't have to mean leaving your comfort zone. In fact, your Grand Rapids home away from home can be downright luxurious.

If you're flying in to Grand Rapids for your surgery, you'll need to be sure to first schedule your virtual consultation with Dr. Brad Bengtson, giving everyone a chance to get on the same page.

Once you arrive, you will get your opportunity to meet your board-certified plastic surgeon in person and talk face to face, not just over the phone. An in-person consultation will also allow the doctor to assess your unique anatomy and ensure that the surgery you are discussing is the best way to help you achieve your desired results. Then, once you know when you are coming to visit, you can plan the rest of your trip.

Arrival and Stay

Check yourself into a top-notch hotel, then get ready to explore the area's stellar restaurants and attractions. Our practice has cultivated relationships with many establishments in the downtown area. Remember, you don't have to coordinate all of this on your own. Our concierge services are available to make planning your stay as easy and comfortable as possible.

We'll also look forward to meeting you in person, and we're sure you'll be delighted with our team and our office.


After your surgery, you will want some down time to rest and recuperate.
