Beautiful Lips

Posted on April 23, 2015 by Dr. Ringler

shutterstock_109743647Everyone wants beautiful lips that are full, natural looking, and free from lip lines. Traditionally, wrinkles around the mouth as a result of smoking, puckering and just plain living, have been one of the more difficult areas for plastic surgeons to treat successfully. These lines are not typically corrected with a facelift or any other type of surgery.

Fortunately, there are now some new tools that we have to help treat those fine lines around the mouth, the deeper lines between the nose and corners of the mouth, and enhance the lips without the awful puffed up Hollywood lips that most women and men abhor.

For the lines between the corners of…

Getting Rid of a Turkey Neck

Posted on March 17, 2014 by Dr. Ringler

Turkey NeckA very common complaint we hear from men and women is that they hate their neck, and more specifically, they want to get rid of their “turkey neck.”  It isn’t surprising given that the skin on the neck is one of the first to show signs of aging.  Frequently when we apply sunscreen, the exposed area of the neck is neglected.  It is fairly apparent to many people who notice the skin under their chin looks pretty good, while the skin at the bottom of their neck looks saggy, wrinkled or bumpy.

Some people have a genetic predisposition toward a sagging neck, but many people don’t begin to notice the…

Weightloss & Liposution in Grand Rapids, MI

Much to the disappointment of many of our patients, liposuction, Coolsculpting and Exilis Elite are not procedures that result in much weight loss.  They do help to sculpt and reshape the body.  All of these procedures do destroy fat cells permanently, but the end result of the procedures is that the body is more balanced and proportional.

We offer several types of liposuction, from SmartLipo Triplex, which is a triple wave length laser form of liposuction, Body-Jet liposuction which uses water to dislodge the fat cells, and Continue Reading...

Exilis ELITE

Posted on November 7, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

There are many new non-surgical devices for improving appearance that come on the market each year.  Deciding which technology to choose that makes sense for our practice and patients can be a bit daunting.  We look for devices that are FDA approved, safe, and can offer significant, effective results.   Some years there are no non-surgical devices that fit our criteria.  This year, we have added BTL’s Exilis ELITE to our line of non-surgical treatment options.

A second generation device, Exilis ELITE utilizes radiofrequency technology that targets fat cells for body contouring and also offers skin tightening benefits.  It is an office procedure that…

Is Liposuction Obsolete?

Posted on September 3, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

 It seems every few months there are new options for controlling unwanted areas of fat that tend to appear on our bodies as we age.  We’re all too familiar with them; post pregnancy loose skin and excess tummy fat, those love-handles that appear at the flanks that we aren’t in love with, or the little muffin-top at the top of our jeans that just doesn’t seem to budge with diet and exercise.  Looking for an answer to how best to solve the problem is not always easy.  There are more options than ever  for reducing fat without surgery; CoolSculpting, Exilis Elite, Zerona, and newcomers on…

Help for “Bitchy Resting Face”

Posted on July 19, 2013 by Dr. Ringler

A funny YouTube video that has gone viral talks about having a “bitchy resting face”. The woman in the video consistently has people asking her if something is wrong because they think she is in a bad mood.  She isn’t.  As she says, she just has a “bitchy resting face.”  Apparently she is not alone.

Although partially genetic, there are some changes that occur to the face over time that can make you look angry or overly concerned even when you’re not.  Repeated furrowing of the brow can cause a deep wrinkle between the eyebrows.  This is something can easily be treated in about 15 minutes with…
