Posted on November 20, 2018 by seo@risestrategic.com

The body you had prior to pregnancy can be hard to get back, especially after multiple pregnancies.

When it seems difficult to regain that youthful body you once had, a “mommy makeover” with the best plastic surgeon in Grand Rapids, Dr. Steven Ringler, might be the solution.

Breast Implants That Come with a Protection Plan

Posted on November 10, 2018 by seo@risestrategic.com

A 2017 report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) states, “Breast augmentation continues to be the top cosmetic surgical procedure and has been since 2006.” Why is it so popular? It has a high patient satisfaction rate. In the May 2013 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, findings from a study of 225 women following their breast augmentations concluded that 91.1% experienced improved self-esteem, and 64.3% reported better quality of life.

While receiving breast implants is a wonderful way to increase your confidence and achieve the look you desire, it is important to be aware that the need for unexpected postoperative procedures may arise. When women choose the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured…

Breast Surgery with Dr. Ringler

Scarless Breast Augmentation Surgery

Posted on October 13, 2015 by Dr. Ringler

Breast Procedures Grand Rapids, MIMany women who consider breast augmentation worry about scarring or wonder if there is a “scarless” breast augmentation. Since all surgery involves cutting the skin, scars are an inevitable by product. When it comes to breast augmentation, many women who come to my practice are interested in having no scar whatsoever on their breasts. This is something we can accomplish.

Many years ago I learned the transaxillary approach to breast augmentation whereby a very small incision is made underneath the armpit, a fairly inconspicuous spot from an aesthetic standpoint, and the implant is inserted. This area also tends to heal very quickly and often after…

Vacation Breasts (InstaBreast)

Posted on December 4, 2014 by Dr. Ringler

71187663_201-300x212For those who want to experience what it would be like to have fuller breasts but without committing to a breast augmentation, a new technique developed by New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Norman Rowe offers patients a chance to experience “vacation breasts” but only for about 24 hours with saline breast injections.

The technique basically takes about 20 minutes to perform. The injection site, at the edge of each nipple is anesthetized, and about a half liter of saline solution (salt water) is injected into each breast and, voila- instant breasts. The body then absorbs the salt water naturally within about 24 hours.

According to Dr. Rowe, who has performed many of…

Ideal Breast Implant

Posted on November 19, 2014 by Dr. Ringler

GettyImages_87884438It came as great news yesterday that the FDA approved Valeant Pharmaceuticals, Ideal Breast Implant for use in the U.S.

Back at our Virgin Islands Workshop in 2010, a friend and plastic surgery colleague, Dr. Robert Hamas, introduced plastic surgeons at our meeting to a prototype for an implant he had developed. The new implant, which he called the Ideal Implant®, combined the best of silicone gel and saline implants.

Dr. Hamas felt that many women liked the natural result of the silicone gel implants, but preferred the safety of a saline implant should the implant leak or rupture. Regular MRI scans are typically the only way women can detect a leak…

Reasons for Seeking Breast Surgery

Posted on July 29, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

For those who are comfortable with their breasts, there can be a bit of mystery or misunderstanding as to what prompts women to seek out plastic surgery of the breast. Rarely do women seek out breast surgery because they want very large, or overly conspicuous breasts. Most women are seeking a natural appearance that results in better balance for their figure.

As is often the case in nature, there is frequently a case of too much or too little in terms of breast endowment. For many women seeking breast implants, there have been issues with being flat chested since adolescence. Often these women are…

Discount Plastic Surgery

Posted on June 4, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

If you’ve ever been tempted to respond to one of those “two breast implants for the price of one” type promotions or travel vacations offering plastic surgery for less, be careful. It is a very rare reputable, board certified plastic surgeon who will offer surgical procedures at a discount to just anyone responding to an ad in the paper or magazine. This is truly a case of “buyer beware” when you see such types of promotions.

What is the problem with wanting to save a little money on a cosmetic surgery procedure? First of all, not everyone seeing an ad is a good surgical candidate. Only after a complete…

Benefits of a Mommy Makeover

Posted on February 4, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

New mothers are often so thrilled with their new baby, that it is often not until a year or two post-partum that women begin to feel that the body that they assumed would “bounce back” following the baby, has not done so. The process of gaining and losing weight as one does during a pregnancy, breast- feeding resulting in a loss of breast volume, separation of the stomach muscle (diastasis) and loose skin, are often complaints that we hear from women who are seeking a mommy makeover. These issues can occur regardless of whether the woman has gotten back to her pre-pregnancy weight and are ones that are not…
