When the idea of having a breast implant procedure crossed my mind, I did some research online like many others. After compiling a list of surgeons based on websites and comments, I scheduled my first interview with Dr. E. My first meeting with the doctor went smoothly. He was very patient in answering all my questions and provided me with materials describing the procedure and its risks. Since I felt really comfortable with Dr. E, I knew I need not schedule interviews with other surgeons anymore.
Throughout the process, Dr. E gave me professional advice and delivered the result I wanted. I would not know if Dr. E is the best surgeon as I have not tried others, but I am really pleased with what I have got. I believe every lady planning to go through the procedure would want a caring, skillful and knowledgeable surgeon. To me, I just couldn't ask for more with Dr. E. I am glad with my decision, and would like to give thanks to Dr. E and his staff, who are truly friendly and helpful.
For a long time I flirted with the idea having a Tummy Tuck, but was always turned off by some of the horror stories I heard about surgeries gone bad. I am a mother of four children, two of which are a set of twins. I have had two other surgeries performed in my stomach area; between pregnancies and surgery, let??s just say my stomach was not the best to look at. I learned about Dr. Engler from my sister who had some surgery done with fantastic results. She would not stop talking about him; she shared how wonderful he was to her from the very beginning. Then a year later my best friend decided to have Dr. E perform a Tummy Tuck on her. Boy was I impressed! My friend??s results were amazing. She was happy and looking fabulous.
I went in to get my consultation, Dr. E was very detailed, he explained the whole process, how long the surgery would be, what to expect as far as pain or discomfort after surgery, and how long the recovery would be. Most important he was patient and took his time. I did not feel pressured to hurry with my questions he gave me his undivided attention. The day of my surgery came and Dr. E was even more supportive. He made sure I was as calm and comfortable as I could. After my surgery Dr. Engler called me every day to ask how I was doing. I could not be surer that he really cares about his patients. Dr. Engler provides exceptional support.
It??s been two weeks since my surgery, I must say I am very impressed with the results; I have more recovery to go but I am already happy with what I see. Dr. E has is amazing. I see exactly what he promised. I am now another fan; with all my heart I recommend that anyone looking to have cosmetic surgery see Dr. Englar.
I am writing this testimonial close to 6 years after a breast
augmentation. After breastfeeding 2 beautiful babies, I was left with
deflated sagging breasts and just wanted to look normal again. After
meeting Dr. Engler, I just knew he was the right doctor for me. He was
understanding, caring and reassuring and he made me look incredible.
The results are fantastic and I couldn't be happier. He truly is a
genious. Recently, I experienced an accidental trauma to one of my
breasts and as a result, had to replace one implant. As you can
imagine, I was scared and upset. Dr. Engler couldn't have been more
compassionate, kind, and just plain wonderful. He practically held my
hand throughout the whole ordeal. He made me feel confident that
everything would be O.K. and I will be eternally grateful to Dr. Engler
for making me feel safe and, once again, look great. If anyone reading
this has any doubts about choosing a plastic surgeon, please know that
Dr. Engler is simply THE BEST in every way. I am 100% confident in
saying that you will not find a better doctor.
When I was 20 years old, I had an ovary removed due to a very large cyst. The resulting scar was deep and long, stretching from below my belly-button to the top of my pubic area. This year, at 26, I decided it was time to have the scar revised.
I met Dr. Engler after interviewing several surgeons, and Dr. Engler was the most positive doctor I've ever met. He immediately made me feel comfortable, as did his office staff during my visits. He was upbeat and assured me the surgery would be easy and that I would look great when finished. In order to get the best results, he suggested that the surgery should includ a scar revision and liposuction from my abdomen and hips. We scheduled the surgery for this past July.
I am incredibly happy with the results. I had the surgery three weeks ago, and I look unbelievable. Dr. Engler has been incredibly available to me both before the surgery, during my recovery, and now, a few weeks later. He provided me with his cell phone and email address. My stomach and hips are now flat, I've had almost no swelling, and the scar is very thin. I look amazing - in and out of clothes. I couldn't be happier.
I met Dr. Engler 5 years ago when I first requested breast reduction. At that time he was not accepting my insurance but even at the first visit, I knew I wanted him to handle my surgery. He explained all the risks, benefits and alternatives in a confident, professional manner. He has a wealth of knowledge and tons of experience. Thankfully I got the insurance he accepted and went back to him after years of suffering from the effects of enlarged breasts. I could not believe he remembered me from five years ago and he immediately started the process of approval and preparation for the procedure. After only weeks I got approved by the insurance company and I was scheduled the procedure only days after the approval. Needless to say I am ecstatic about the results. My nipples have great sensation. I have absolutely no back pain and shoulder soreness. My posture improved and my self confidence skyrocketed. I can exercise in gym attire and wear swim suits that actually fits and contains my breasts. The office staff were pleasant, respectful, polite, helpful and accommodating. Thank you Dr. Engler. You are absolutely the best. The five year wait was well worth it. The result is fantastic. I showed them off to my friends and so far one person had the procedure done with Dr. Engler and a few more are seriously considering it. I know I look good. I am happy. My husband is happy and the ??girls? are happy.
Pros: excellent workmanship
Cons: great results
In choosing a doctor for my breast augmentation I couldn??t have made a better choice than Dr. Engler. My case is a bit complicated so I feel fortunate that he accepted to do my surgery. First of all I??m disabled. Because I wasn??t sure that he would take on my case I initially contacted him through email. I explained in detail my situation and he wrote back to me right away. He was willing to see me and we setup a consultation. I use a wheelchair to get around and on the day of the consultation his staff was so incredibly helpful in getting me in and out, being that there are a few steps in the front of the facility. Once meeting Dr. Engler he really put me at ease because he is so welcoming and a complete professional that I felt comfortable to ask all the questions I had as well as show him my breasts. To add complication to my case I also have asymmetric breasts. One breast was higher and smaller than the other. During the consultation Dr. Engler explained to me that he would try to get them close in size as possible but that perfect symmetrical breast wasn??t a realistic result. Dr. Engler described what he would do to try to get them more symmetrical and the risk involved in lowering the crease. It gave me a lot to think about but I placed my trust on Dr. Engler who has a lot of experience in the field. In regard to choosing a size Dr. Engler never pushed me to get a certain size; I did the rice test and from there had an idea of the size I would be getting.
On the days before surgery I was in constant contact with Dr. Engler. Any question I had I would email him and he would either email me or call me but I never had to wait more than a day for a response. Dr. Engler is very accessible, which I felt comfort in, being that I still had questions. On the day of surgery I was a little nervous but Dr. Engler and his staff are great and I felt confident that I was in good hands. After awakening from surgery Dr. Engler??s nurse was kind enough to assist my sister in getting me ready to leave. I was very drowsy but well enough to leave and Dr. Engler himself took me outside in the wheelchair. He called me everyday, sometimes twice a day for the following week to see how I was doing. Because of the force I use on my arms to get up and walk to use the bathroom Dr. Engler was wise enough to send me home with a urinary catheter and drains placed in. He went as far as to schedule a Saturday appointment to remove the drains and catheter. Even more, that Saturday was my birthday and he was so gracious as to bring a dessert with a candle and sing happy birthday.
I have nothing but kind words to say about Dr. Engler. Not only is he a truly skilled surgeon that gives you great results but also an extraordinary human being. He has treated my case with the sensitivity I needed to go forward with the procedure. As for my breasts, it has been two months since my surgery and I??m loving the results so far. It??s still early for me to see what would be the final results but Dr. Engler did a great job and I??m very grateful.
Pros: Accessible, skilled, friendly
When I decided it was time for a Breast Augmentation, I interviewed many physicians in this field. There are many doctors who do this type of procedure but the key is to find the best. I believe I did find the best doctor when I met with Dr, Engler.
Although he listened intently to what I wanted he was clear to let me know that he would only do what was in my best interest. He met with me several times prior to my decision to use him and each time answered all my questions and concerns. The staff in his office is also extremely knowlegeable and caring and Dr. Engler's credentials are impeccable. I found Dr. Engler to be a perfectionist with his work and between this fact and his credentials as well as his bedside manner, this made him the one I chose for this procedure.
His genuine caring continued after my surgery as he spoke to me daily for the first week after the surgery to check on me and how I was doing. He didn't have a nurse call or one of his staff, he called himself.
Today, many doctors treat patients as though they are on an assembly line. From my experience with Dr. Engler, this is far from the way it was with him. I recommend him hands down above the rest and plan on using him again should I decide to have any further procedures done.
Pros: Honest, Truly Concerned, Genuine, Perfectionist
PURE GENIUS... and even that is an understatement. Dr. Engler has transformed my body into a shape I thought I could never achieve. When I first met Dr. E it was for a consultation for a breast reduction. He took one look at them and the rest of my body and said no. He asked if I was open to other suggestions. I said yes and the rest was history. About a month later he preformed a modifided tummy tuck and lipo on my stomach, hips, and back. I've never been so comfortable and so happy in my own skin as I am now. I have a waistline that I can actually see and curves that make my twin sister jealous. I'm constatantly looking in the mirror at my new body and smiling from ear to ear. I have a new found confidence. And I'm loving it. I'm even eating healthier just to make sure I maintain this new me.
Dr. Engler and staff are always professional, caring, and unbelievably attentive. I spoke with him everyday from the day of my surgery to about 2 to 3 weeks post op. It's a reassuring feeling knowing your doctor REALLY cares. From the first day I met the gang to my most recent visit, they've been more than welcoming. They make you feel comfortable. They truly are the friendliest bunch.
A million thank yous for making look and feel like a million bucks. You're amazingly talented. And I'm overjoyed that you're my surgeon.
Pros: friendly staff, short waiting time
I consulted Dr. Engler today for scarless breast reduction and he gave me all information I needed.
He is a great doctor and I really trust him to do the surgery. Last year, he did my tummy tuck and I'm very
happy with the result. Everyone at the office are wonderful and I'm confident that they'll take care of me.
I will recommend Dr. Alan Engler a 100%.
Where do I begin to not only Thank Dr. Engler for everything he has done for me, but to also express to everyone just how wonderful he is???
I met Dr. Engler in March/April 1996 when I went for a consultation for a breast reduction, although at the time my concern was more about getting the reduction , I never researched Dr. Engler or the surgery-I just wanted my reduction. Because of my lack of research I was VERY lucky to have found Dr. Engler to be my doctor. My surgery went great, my results were just what I was hoping for. Both Dr. Engler and his staff were amazing in everyway. I still get compliments from other doctors and nurses of the great job that was done.
After all these years I never forgot him and how safe I felt and how well he took care of me, which leads me now to March 2010.
I decided I wanted to get a tummy tuck and liposuction, my first thought was Dr. Engler but I no longer lived in NYC, I was about o start looking for a doctor in my City when I decided I didn??t want any other doctor and I called Dr. Engler and told him what I wanted to do. He told me he would work with me and do whatever can be done to make this work. I flew to NY for my consultation and it was so great to see him after 14 years. Everything went well and we set the date for my surgery, his wonderful staff took care of everything that needed to be done and everything went smoothly. Whenever I had a question on days leading up to the surgery Dr. Engler always took my call, he even answered his cell phone when I called!!! He even called me the day before my consultation to make sure I made it to NY ok.
The day of my surgery I was so glad I made the decision to have him do my surgery I just knew I was in good hands. The surgery went well and Dr. Engler checked in with my husband and I regularly, he even came to see me a few days after surgery to check on me. Dr. Engler is just an amazing Doctor and friend that I will know for life. Once again I am very happy with the results of my procedure and I will continue to go to NY for him if I ever need another procedure. I have recommended Dr. Engler to everyone I know and will continue to do so, some have already selected him as their doctor as well and they have been extremely happy. I would be happy to talk to anyone who is considering Dr. Engler for their procedure if need be, I think he is wonderful!!!
Pros: Best Dr and Staff I have ever dealt with
Cons: Wish I Lived Closer to NY
I struggled with a serious weight problem during my teen years. When I was a freshman in college, I decided enough was enough. I changed my life for the better and lost over 80 pounds. Through an on-going two year battle, I had lost the weight, was a healthy new person and was ready to live a new life. The only problem was a lot of loose skin on my stomach and fat pockets on the back. After talking to doctors and such, I knew the only way to get rid of this problem was plastic surgery. I was terrified, but finally made the decision. After searching for a while, with the help and support from my father, we found Doctor Engler. From the first meeting, I knew he was the doctor for me. He described everything in detail, from the risks, the procedure, all the way to the recovery. His staff was friendly and extremely helpful. The week leading up to the surgery I was a wreck with nerves. But once there, Dr. Engler and his staff made it all go away. Although I had my moments, my recovery was not bad at all. It has been one year and I am the happiest with my body than I have ever been my whole life!!! He is simply one of the best doctors around and I would HIGHLY recommend him to ANYONE and EVERYONE looking to change their lives for the better. GO DR. E!!!!
Pros: Comfort, Knowledge, and Care!! Complete Dedication!
Cons: no lollipop after surgery.
I could not have asked for a better experience at a plastic surgeons office. I came in for a scar removal and left beyond pleased. I was in and out in less than an hour, and the results were great. The staff was very professional and nice, and the doctor himself was absolutely terrific. The results were better than I could have ever imagined (barely any scarring). I would recommend this doctor to anyone.
Pros: No waiting, result are great, nice staff
