Morpheus8 & Morpheus8 Body

Morpheus8 is a revolutionary, non-invasive procedure that combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology to rejuvenate and tighten the skin. This innovative treatment targets deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin. Morpheus8 is effective in improving skin texture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing acne scars, and tightening sagging skin.

Morpheus8 Body effectively reduces fat and tightens skin in various stubborn areas such as the abdomen, knees, bra areas, arms, and even the tail of spence (the breast area that extends into your armpit).


Hydrafacial stands out as a non-invasive facial therapy that tackles a range of skin concerns while reinstating harmony to the complexion. It employs a precise combination of specialized products and technologies to achieve a smooth and luminous complexion without causing discomfort. In just one session, clients witness immediate results, which can be further enhanced with a series of six treatments. Hydrafacial addresses various skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, dark spots, congestion, and enlarged pores.

Feminine Rejuvenation

ThermiVa: This quick, low-risk, non-invasive procedure treats vaginal dryness and laxity of the vulva. It can also increase a patient’s sexual satisfaction and reduce urinary leakage and stress incontinence. Similar to our FormaV treatment, ThermiVa is a painless, non-surgical procedure that uses RF energy to stimulate new collagen production. What’s more? Realself gives ThermiVa a 94% thumbs-up rating.

FormaV: FormaV gently uses radiofrequency heat internally on the vaginal tissue and externally on the labia to encourage new collagen and blood flow. After 3-6 gentle, pain-free treatments, vaginal membranes are firmer and restored. And patients report significant improvement in vaginal dryness.

EMSCULPT NEO: Faster Fat Burning & Better Muscle Building

Unfortunately, a good diet and a healthy lifestyle doesn’t always guarantee that our bodies will be free of stubborn problem pockets of fatty tissue, nor that we’ll be as lean, cut and chiseled as we wished we were. And that out of balance risk/reward ratio can be disheartening. Emsculpt NEO is the solution. It’s the only device currently available that uses RF energy and electromagnetic fields to simultaneously build muscle and burn fat. To shape, sculpt, lift and define your abdomen, flanks and other muscle groups, Emsculpt NEO triggers rapid minute muscle contractions at the same time that it’s delivering the RF energy. Both make for a powerful one-two punch that not only reduces fat, but increases muscle. And, despite the fact that treatment is a lot like doing some 20,000 sit ups or squats in 30 minutes, the procedure requires no recovery downtime and produces no pain.

BBL HERO: Superior Skin Rejuvenation

BBL HERO treats a wide range of common cosmetic conditions including sun and age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, rosacea (or facial redness), freckles, unwanted hair, and pigmented lesions. A marked improvement over its predecessor BBL ForeverYoung, BBL HERO works on all areas of the body and the procedure can be performed in under 30 minutes. BBL HERO seamlessly combines two groundbreaking technologies to deliver powerful results four times faster than other “similar” devices, and is three times more powerful and twice as cool as traditional traditional laser systems. For patients, this means faster, more comfortable treatment sessions that are followed by little to no recovery time. At the Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, we use BBL HERO to improve the health, quality and appearance of your skin to leave it smoother, clearer and tighter.

EMSCULPT- Builds Muscle and Reduces Fat

You work out, watch your diet and exercise and but still may have unwanted areas of fat around your abdomen or a lack of definition. Or perhaps, over time, your gluteal region has lost definition and muscle. EMSCULPT is the only non-surgical technology that uses electro-magnetic, HIFEM, energy to build muscle and reduce fat. Imagine one 30-minute session of Emsculpt equalling 20,000 sit ups or squats at the gym. When used for the abdomen, Emsculpt builds muscle and reduces fat. When used in the gluteal region, there is no fat reduction but rather better definition and lifting of the buttocks without surgery.

HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser

Radiant, rejuvenated skin without the downtime. Beautiful flawless looking skin that glows is the goal of women and men of all ages. At times, environmental damage, scarring, hyperpigmentation or simply the aging process can impede our efforts for a beautiful complexion. The Halo hybrid fractional laser provides a solution to many skin care concerns by building collagen and smoothing out irregularities on the skin restoring the luminous glow you had when you were younger.

Forever Young BBL

Forever Young BBL™- FotoFacial is an innovative technology that delivers light therapy by targeting the signs of aging and sun damage effectively providing a more refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance. By eliminating flushing caused by rosacea and age spots caused by the sun, your skin will regain the healthy glow of a youthful complexion.

A clinical study on BroadBand Light from Stanford University reveals Forever Young BBL™ can restore gene expression of aged human skin to resemble much younger skin. In fact, patients who had utilized ForeverYoung BBL™ over a 7 year period actually looked younger than they had 7 years earlier.

Serene Structured Saline Breast Implant

The SERENE IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is a saline-filled implant with an innovative patented-design that gives it a natural feel without silicone gel. The Serene Implant has a revolutionary new technology that offers women the look and feel of a silicone gel implant, but with the safety of only saline inside. This technology eliminates the concern women have with silicone gel implants: that of ruptures that are silent and require an MRI scan for detection. With the Serene Implant, a woman can simply look in the mirror each day and have the confidence of knowing her implants are intact. Dr. Ringler is the first board certified plastic surgeon in Grand Rapids able to offer the Serene Implant. He was a Premier Surgeon within the IDEAL IMPLANT physician network (now known as the Serene Implant), recognized for his extensive expertise and experience.

CoolSculpting is a new, FDA approved, non-surgical procedure that serves as an alternative to liposuction for those individuals who have only a small amount of fat that resists diet and exercise. This safe and effective procedure is done in our office by positioning the CoolSculpt device on the desired treatment area for approximately 1-2 hours, and the fat cells are then targeted and frozen through a process called Cryolipolyis™. The procedure is completely non-invasive and offers no downtime. Individuals may immediately return to work or even intense exercise. CoolSculpting is best for men and women who are close to their ideal body weight but may want to rid themselves of “muffin-top” or “love-handles” without surgery. Dr. Ringler is the first board certified plastic surgeon in Michigan to be able to offer Zeltiq to his patients as an alternative to liposuction.

Facial ULTRALift

Facial ULTRALift is a new non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure that was developed by Dr. Ringler for those individuals who want beautiful, natural results without a surgical facelift. The first step of the ULTRALift uses advanced techniques in Ultherapy, the ultrasonic technology that lifts and tightens the skin of the face, neck, and brow. It is a 1 to 2-hour treatment that uses your body’s own regenerative response to gently and gradually restore memory to the skin and underlying tissue. Ultherapy actually helps your skin begin to reproduce collagen. Dr. Ringler is the first board-certified plastic surgeon in Michigan to offer Ultherapy, and he has advanced training in techniques with the procedure.

Dr. Ringler will devise a personalized plan based on your specific needs and goals for facial rejuvenation. Following the Ultherapy procedure, Dr. Ringler will administer a combination of Botox or Xeomin, Radiesse, or Juvderm, depending on your treatment plan, to help provide facial volume, add structure to the jawline, and strategically placed Botox or facial fillers to give you natural results without a surgical facelift. Dr. Ringler has over 20 years of experience in aesthetic facial rejuvenation techniques.


Ultherapy™ is a new ultrasound treatment, recently approved by the FDA, for counteracting the effects of time and gravity on your facial skin.
