I researched four surgeons: two female, two male (all from different offices). All had the accreditation, credentials and qualifications. All four had wonderful, welcoming offices; however, Dr. Steven Ringler was the one who stood out amongst them all...he has a five page printout of local, state, national and even international credentials and accomplishments and he trained most of the plastics surgeons in town (one surgeon of which Dr. Ringler trained too happened to be in my “foursome” random pick!). Dr. Ringler is amazing...research him! My sister, who is in the medical field in Muskegon, offered to drive in from Muskegon to pick me up and bring back to G.R. because she was convinced that the plastic surgeon she knew was the best...come to find out her surgeon was also trained by Dr. Ringler! It was very clear what my decision was going to be.

I had my breast augmentation done by Dr. Ringler; he is a set-apart professional. He is a gentle, humble man and I was exceedingly comfortable with him. I had a rich experience with him, his staff and the surgical staff! His "scarless scar" looks just like a crease in my arm pit...I (& my husband) am so very pleased with my implants (which were saline) and the “scarless scar”.

IMPORTANT! Do your plastic surgeon/implant research! It is eye opening! You will be amazed on the accredited information you will find in regards to implants (esp. on the FDA web site)! Do not completely put your life in the hands of your surgeon in regards to the implants...do your own homework...set aside a few hours and research your implant products...know the pros and cons for each! Be informed!
