Philosophy

Pregnancies and weight gain can wreak havoc on your body, especially your breasts and tummy. More and more patients are choosing to combine surgical procedures to reduce costs and recovery times. “Over 70 percent of my patients are having multiple procedures done now when undergoing general anesthesia,” says Dr. Bengtson. “It’s a delicate balance in that we want to combine procedures that make sense and can be done safely.” Frequently combined procedures include abdominoplasty, liposuction and breast surgeries such as lifts and augmentations. Although they’re commonly referred to as Mommy Makeovers, Dr. Bengtson and his staff call them “Princess Packages.” He often recommends packaging a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast surgery together to completely transform the body. “In patients who are close to their ideal weight, the right procedures can have extremely impactful results,” adds the doctor.

About My Practice:

What nonsurgical advancements have you added?

In addition to our boutique-style walk-in component, where patients can be evaluated for Botox, facial fillers, laser treatments and skin care without an appointment, we have added CoolSculpting®, a nonsurgical fat-reduction system with no pain or downtime; and Ulthera®, a new nonsurgical facial skin-tightening system that we are very excited to offer our patients. 

What plastic surgery advancements are on the horizon?

Using high-resolution ultrasound to look at breast implants instead of MRI will be a valuable tool for patients. I’ve performed the initial landmark research in this area that was published in a recent issue of the Aesthetic Surgery Journal and believe it may truly change how we follow up with and treat our augmentation and reconstruction patients.

How do you enhance the patient experience?

We’ve created a high-quality center that strives for excellence, providing our patients individualized service using our comprehensive offering of treatments. Nestled on the first floor of a Women’s Health Center, the Bengtson Center is more like checking into a fine hotel or spa with beautiful surroundings—complete with a fireplace, warm reading nook and skin-care bar.

How would you describe your staff?

They are by far the most dynamic, engaging, joy-filled and talented staff I have ever worked with. They are extremely caring and focused on the patients and their experiences. 

In which procedures are you seeing an influx?

We’re performing more breast augmentations and breast revisions with SERI® Surgical Scaffold. In addition, more minimally invasive techniques in conjunction with facial fillers are on the rise. 

How would you describe your office?

The office was designed by a residential builder and creative design team to establish a space that is inviting and warm, complete with a reading nook and fireplace. Patients are greeted by a concierge, as if they’re entering a hotel or a cozy residence, and directed to our skin-care, injectable or plastic surgery center. It’s our utmost goal to make our patients feel welcomed and not intimidated. 

How do you help patients choose a treatment?

We offer our patients a problem/ concern-focused approach: We inform them of the options and the potential outcomes matching with their expectations and lifestyle to help them choose the best procedure for their needs and concerns. 

About Me:

How do you guide patients when discussing surgical and nonsurgical options?

I believe we tend to be an either/or society when it comes to maintaining a natural, youthful appearance. However, many patients benefit from both/and, or combination treatments. For instance, both facial fillers and a facelift may be needed to restore volume and treat sagging skin. 

What attracted you to facial plastic surgery?

It provides a mix of compassion, science, art and creativity. 

What affiliations are you proud to have?

I am proud to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and to be involved with the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, American Society of Plastic Surgeons and American College of Surgeons.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I’m passionate about bringing innovation and art to the practice of plastic surgery. I focus on developing new techniques and procedures to constantly raise the bar and deliver the best patient outcomes I can. 

What is something your patients might not know about you?

I am one of only 10 plastic surgeons selected to be a member of Allergan’s Executive Council, and I am a lead investigator for the Natrelle® 410 Highly Cohesive Gel breast implant often referred to as the “Gummy Bear.” I’m also dedicated to Revisional Cosmetic Breast Sugery and the correction of Capsular Contracture using Acellular Dermal Matrix (Alloderm / Strattice™).

What are some of the hobbies you enjoy when not working?

I love underwater photography, travel and spending time with my family. I’ve also written books on Civil War medicine. And, I’m involved in medical device development, with eight current medical patents.

About Me

Simulated Sizing

To show his 41-year-old patient how surgery can make over her breasts, Dr. Bengtson relies on his 3D simulation software. “Rather than show patients someone else’s before-and-after results, I show them what their after images could look like, easing the uncertainty that can come along with not knowing what to expect.” 

Additional Adjuncts

Dr. Bengtson’s software not only enables him to predict patients’ outcomes with a frontal representation of their potential results; it also renders 3D images from a variety of angles, giving patients a clearer understanding of what their new breasts may look like. To learn more about Vectra 3D Imaging or to see your own simulation, visit sculptmydream.com. 

Shaping the Breast

This patient had an extremely challenging breast to enhance due to minimal volume and a tight, constricted breast. To give this patient natural, proportional breasts, I performed a breast augmentation “Gummy Bear” implants, to make her breasts more proportionate for her body. This patient continues to love her fuller breast results, shown here three years post-op.

A Reputation For Revision Expertise

Dr. Bengtson believes that breast augmentation and enhancement surgery is a highly personal decision, so he works closely with each patient to tailor their procedure to their desired outcome. Having performed nearly 3,000 augmentations in 25 years, Dr. Bengtson is a leader in his field, educating his fellow physicians and investigating new technological advancements. His practice is one of the largest revisional breast practices in the country dealing with complex complications, thanks to his industry-respected skill in the use of new surgical scaffolds and tissues that provide internal support for breast augmentation and secondary revisional surgery. 

Eliminating Excess

After having three children, this patient sought my expertise to remove the stubborn excess skin and fat from her abdomen. We tailored her treatment to include liposuction to her abdomen and flanks and full abdominoplasty to provide her with a nice, sculpted appearance. She now has the smooth, contoured abdomen that she remembers from her years before childbirth.

An Innovator in Plastic Surgery

A leader in breast surgery and lead investigator for the Natrelle 410 “gummy bear” cohesive gel implant, Dr. Bengtson uses advanced techniques and devices to ensure the best possible results for his patients. “I feel fortunate to be involved in some of the most exciting things happening in plastic surgery today,” he says. In breast revision or reconstruction surgeries, Dr. Bengtson incorporates technology such as the Strattice™ and Alloderm® tissue matrices, layers of tissue that act as internal reinforcements to hold and define breast shape as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkling, rippling and excessive scar tissue. In addition, Dr. Bengtson offers a Fast Track Recovery Program for first-time breast augmentation patients, where they can return to normal, non-impact physical activities within 24 to 48 hours. Along with simulating before and after results in the breast, he utilizes 3D imaging to compare results of surgical and nonsurgical fat reduction and grafting. “We are imaging patients to find out the actual clinical differences in volume before and after treatment for both liposuction and CoolSculpting,” Dr. Bengtson says. “We will be able to better define outcomes and provide more realistic expectations after better evaluating these surgical and nonsurgical techniques.”

Surgeon, Researcher and Educator

Dr. Bengtson is passionate about all aspects of plastic surgery. He is deeply involved in research, education and teaching and recognizes the significance of passing along his experience. Dr. Bengtson teaches nationally and internationally in breast revision and breast augmentation, and is also a national trainer for Botox Cosmetic and other facial fillers. He is a current and founding member of the Allergan Executive Council and a Black Diamond provider, which is achieved by less than 1 percent of all plastic surgery practices. Dedicating half of his practice to breast-related surgeries, Dr. Bengtson has adopted a new imaging system for capturing and simulating images in 3-D for the breast, face and body. “Gone are the days of before-and-after photos in my practice. Instead, I show patients what their results may look like with the Vectra® 3-D Imaging System,” says Dr. Bengtson. “Together the patient and I can discuss the specific enhancements they are looking for to achieve an optimal result.” Dr. Bengtson is actively involved with many research projects of the face, breast and body to help bring new, innovative products to the market. “My goal is for our patients to feel confident and comfortable with the safe surgical and nonsurgical solutions we have customized for them.”

Restoring Youth

Dr. Bengtson performed a facelift, necklift and upper lip lift, plus Belotero® and Juvéderm® injections, on this 63-year-old patient who worried she looked older than her age.
