5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Nursing Mother Needed Help...- Grand Rapids, MI

I heard about him from a friend. Then I went to Dr Bengtson's office and was so impressed with him and his staff. His credentials are very impressive as well. I know a significant percentage of his Augmentation surgeries are actually correcting other Dr's mistakes, now that says a lot. I checked out several different doctors in the Grand Rapids area when a friend told me about Dr. Bengtson. My husband and I were very comfortable with him from the initial consultation. I have told several friends about Dr Bengtson and they have been thrilled too. I felt like I had to share with the Real Self community about how wonderful my experience has been with Dr Bengtson and his wonderful staff. I am so thankful!!!

Mommy Makeover Breast Lift, Implants and Full Tummy Tuck -Michigan, MI

I was extremely nervous about procedure beforehand. I am 5'2, 119 pounds, and very active. I run, lift moderate weights, and just don't have time to sit around much. I think this site has helped at times, but made more nervous at others. My fears and concerns; first, mommy guilt...I felt selfish, then it was nerves about money and determining if i could afford to do it, next pain...some...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

27, Mom of 2, Breastfed for Combined 2 Years, Looking to Get Breast Implants to Restore Volume - Grand Rapids, MI

I found Dr. Bengtson on this website and requested a consultation- but shortly after, found out that one of my friends had her BA done by him! She loves her results and she has friends who had their work done with him too! Word of mouth is some of the best marketing out there! I really liked my office visit, everyone was really nice, assuring and professional. Dr. Bengtson let me know that the natural, larger look I was wanting was easily feesable. He explained his technique and how the BA would be done and assured me that I would be back to normal in no time. I am really looking forward to this procedure... Will update after surgery. ***update*** love my results, Dr. Bengtson is fantastic!

Breast Augmentation - Grand Rapids, MI

Because of the last minute change in times/dates for my arrival to Grand Rapids I wasnt able to meet Dr. Bengston until shortly before my surgery. When I did meet him though he treated me with complete professionalism. After he measured me and figured out what size implant he wanted to use he fully answered all the questions I had. I had wanted to go with a 295 cc implant but since my end goal of bra size was only to be a big B/small C he said that the 280 was best for that. I was a little greedy because more is better right? But I trusted him, since this is his profession and he has the experiance to confidently inform me on the rough final size. He was fully correct also! The size that I am now is perfect for my body size and still gives me the 'natural' look, not the 3 sizes too big and they look horribly fake. Dr. Bengston made me feel comfortable about the surgery also and the recovery process. He made the incisions under my breasts and they are about 2" long. He said that when they are done properly there is a 99.95% (or 99.99%) chance that there is no bleeding from the incisions. He was absoulty correct! The only blood there was on the strips over the stitches were from the stitches themselves. He gave me a cream also to put on the incision line once the stitches had come out, so that it would help reduce the visability and here, two months after my surgery is hardly looks like there was any incsion at all! The following day I had my check up and though they were still swollen he said that they looked like they were going to heal well. I couldnt have asked for a better Doctor or staff for my surgery. Even the staff at the hospital were friendly and caring.

One Day to Go...- Grand Rapids, MI

I looked at two of the more well-known plastic surgeons in the area. Based off of meeting with both and talking to friends in the local health care industry, I chose Dr. Bengtson. I am VERY happy with my decision. Dr. Bengtson and his staff are amazing. I only met with Dr. Bengtson for my initial consult before surgery. That was all I needed. He made very clear what the surgery and recovery would entail. I felt very confident in my choice. My husband met Dr. Bengtson the day of surgery and was also very happy with my choice in surgeons. He said he felt much more confident after talking with him and knew I was in good hands. I am now 10 days post-op, and extremely happy with my decision to go with Dr. Bengtson. His staff has been amazing and have really made themselves available for any questions. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Bengtson.
