Very Happy with Lower Eye Bag Surgery, January 8, 2017, 6:55 pm
Reviewer: EllieRO

I had my lower eyelids done by Dr. Engler a few weeks ago. I can already see a dramatic improvement. The bags are gone which is all I wanted. I didn't want anything that would look too plastic and I got a wonderfully natural result that still looks like me, just refreshed. Someone I just met thought I was over a decade younger than I am (I'm in my mid-50's) and nobody has said that to me recently. Plus, Dr. Engler is very easy to work with. He is professional and available - he gives out his cell phone and answers texts. Who does that? His office is neat and warm, and his staff is wonderful. It was overall an excellent experience. I recommend Dr. Engler highly. His results speak for themselves.

My breast revision was the best, April 12, 2016, 3:50 pm
Reviewer: Whybra

Hey lady's first I would like to say God bless you all and congrants to all the lady's that already got there surgery and to the ones who have a date set. I'm first going to write a review about my consultation experience that I had with one of the greatest doctors in the new York city area. How many of you have gone to a consultation and left the same or confused, doubtful or just unhappy with your doctor. Or how about those quicky consult Lol ? And then to top it off the consultation fee of 100 to even 300 dollars. Well I must say that my experience with Dr E was the best consultation Ive ever had. He's very professional well experience and most of all very honest. placing close attention to everything you have to say about your past surgery (for those who are going in for revisions) or if you are just new to all this. He is very patient and answers all your questions with a honesty letting you know exactly what you need to know and what could be beat for you. He doesn't sell you dreams and he tells you like it is. With Dr E there is no rush at all, he really makes you feel comfortable. I felt like I knew him for along time. His staff are the best, very kind and sweet and professional. My only regret was not knowing him before all my other previous surgerys I would have chosen him and maybe I wouldn't need a revision like I do need now. But I'm not going to beat myself up for that, things have to happen in order for us to learn and my advice to all pray and ask God for that right doctor and of course do more research, because I know sometimes it tempting and we jump into things or just believe what one surgen says ,and I think some of them take advantage of the desire that we have to look better. If by any chance your in the nyc area please visit docter Alan Engler I promis you you will not regret it. I will be posting my surgery date and my experience with surgery with doctor Dr E. God bless you all 3 months later: Hi lady's just wanted to update my review. I had surgery on July 9 2015 with doctor Alan Engler, one of the best. As I mentioned in my previous review I was going in for a revision, to get smaller implants, and a breast lift. In my previous surgery before Dr. Engler, I had a breast lift and 325cc implants. I'm 5ft, 115 pounds so I'm petite. I was having a lot of back pains due to the implant being to big for me body and besides that I was very unhappy with my previous results. I had terrible bottoming out and my nipples were way too high on my breasts. After my most recent surgery with Dr. Engler I could not be any happier with my result. I was happy from the moment I woke up from surgery, I felt like the weight was lifted off of me, due to those big balloons I had hanging on my chest. Lol. Plus, I had sensation in my nipples for the first time in years! It turns out that the heavy implants were probably stretching the nerves; once I had the smaller implants put in and the revision, the sensation came back. Who knew? Before and after my surgery Dr. E was very caring and attentive, he called everyday after my surgery to check up on me .Not only is Dr. E a great doctor, he also has an amazing staff. Arlene and Kate are the best, they were not only helpful, but also friendly, caring and attentive. It's been three weeks from my surgery date and I am happy to announce that I now have perky breasts with 150cc implants that fit me PERFECTLY! After waiting 6 years, I am so overwhelmed with joy, because this surgery meant so much to me, and I am extremely happy with my results. I feel great and I look great, I have no regret on the decision that I made on choosing Dr. Engler.

So far so good! Yay , August 28, 2015, 10:06 am
Reviewer: Happybodyuk

I live abroad and chose to go see Dr Engler because of the excellent reviews about him I read online. When I first met him I found him very friendly and also very practical and honest. We discussed the bits of me I didn't like and he told me what he would and wouldn't be able to do. He also suggested other bits he could improve that I hadn't even thought of. I felt very reassured and booked my surgery that same day. I appreciated Dr E keeping in touch during the couple of months between meeting him and my surgery. We checked in and I sent him update photos as I was working out a lot too, to get into the best shape I could achieve by myself before the surgery. By doing this I ensured getting the most exact work done for my specific needs and wants. The whole staff at the office were amazing. So friendly and reassuring and the day of surgery I felt very well looked after. All my follow up appointments were lovely too and I felt like part of the family. My results are great so far. I'm only 6 weeks into recovery but have a totally flat stomach. I'm someone who eats very well and works out daily but couldn't shift my little belly. I also carried extra fat on my hips. As I am short this caused me to look very pear shaped and I was unhappy and the rest of me is slim. Now my stomach is flat and I have the most kick ass slim, hour glass figure. And I'm excited to see how the rest will heal!

Really happy!, July 22, 2015, 8:37 am
Reviewer: sush_a

Where to start with Dr Engler. First of all, let me preface by saying I did meet with several well regarded/known plastic surgeons in New York City and even one in a borough to get a feel for what to expect; as well as an understanding of preferred techniques and styles. What I particularly appreciated about Dr Engler is that he has a very cautious approach and is not afraid to tell you no to procedures that will not have the best outcome for you in his extensive experience. I was impressed with his professionalism and candor as my first impression. Many of Dr Engler's personality attributes have already been commented on positively by previous posters for which I will also attest is true. His openness to discussing what the potential outcome could be went a long way to having more managed expectations toward recovery. His office staff, particularly Arlene who I interacted with frequently to ensure that I had all my pre-op steps covered was very courteous and reassuring. I have found through my previous experiences with office staff in specialist offices, the attitude of staff towards you makes a big difference to your impression of the experience of the doctor. Dr Engler, also accommodated a short notice for my surgery which I am very grateful for as I had mandatory days of vacation to take. He was very patient and helpful towards what must have been a lot of annoying specific questions prior to my surgery. Speaking of recovery, I had a particularly rough one. This was my first experience of surgery and I was in a lot of pain, more than I anticipated for the first couple of days. Dr Engler was very hands on keeping in touch with me directly several times a day and giving me comfort/advice as needed. It made a world of difference as I would have otherwise scared myself on all the possible scenarios available to me on the internet (which is never a good idea). Even though it's only been 8 days, my body already looks amazingly better and it's getting smaller every day. I could not be happier with my experience with Dr Engler and absolutely recommend him to anyone considering his specialty.

Fountain Of Youth, July 6, 2015, 9:55 am
Reviewer: Hatred

"Mirror doesn't lie". I am a 57year old woman who would like to look 37.I look and dress the part, but my mirror told me otherwise. A friend of mine looked fabulous and told me about Dr. Engler. She told me to make an appointment with him, and he will give me the best advice on achieving my goal. I had a consultation with Dr. Engler, who I liked from the beginning, and had the utmost confidence in him. He suggested doing my eyes, and injectables. I scheduled my surgery that day and never looked back!!! I know I look younger and definetly fabulous. Everybody compliments me on my youthful appearance and ask if I found the fountain of youth. He is not only the BEST PLASTIC SURGEON,but the most knowledgeable. I am so happy I listned to his advice. All my friends and my daughter-in-laws friends are now his loyal patients. If you are thinking of plastic surgery, or injectables please schedule a consultation with him, hear what he has to say, and follow his advice. You are in the best hands, I know for sure!!!!

Breast Aug. w/ Dr. Engler - couldn't be happier!, June 2, 2015, 1:01 pm
Reviewer: helloimjenny

I had been unsatisfied with the appearance of my breasts since high school when they did not develop enough to balance out the proportions of my lower half. I began to seriously consider breast augmentation when I was about 22 years old, but wasn't sure if I wanted to willingly put my body through an unnecessary surgery. For two years I researched my options, and continued to struggle with my feelings. On one hand I wanted to do whatever I could to make my body look the way that I felt it was meant to look. On the other hand I continued to tell myself that I should just accept myself the way I am. I would go through periods of time where I tried to change my thinking and really focus on body positive thoughts, but it only lasted for a few months. No matter what I did I couldn't shake the desire to get the body I really wanted. Finally, at 24, I went to my first breast augmentation consultation (not with Dr. Engler) and scheduled a surgery date. Part of me wanted to go through with the surgery, but I also felt like I wasn't ready. I still had these thoughts floating around in my head about how I should love myself for who I was. At that point, I was still struggling with the idea that surgery = low self esteem (not true by the way). I was also scared of all the potential complications and didn’t feel prepared to take those risks if I didn’t have to. For these reasons, I didn't go through with the surgery. About 3 months later I was back to my old patterns, wishing that my body was more balanced and thinking that I should have gotten the surgery when I had the chance. What I realized is that I had been wishing for different breasts for several years, and obviously that desire wasn't going to go away. I wasn't going to wake up one morning and suddenly change my feelings. I also wasn’t going to wake up one morning and magically have the breasts I always wanted. If I wanted to stop the cycle of never-ending doubts and desires, I had to take charge of my situation. I decided that since my feelings about my breasts had persisted for this long, even after chickening out of my first surgery, it meant that I should really do something about it. I began to look for a plastic surgeon in New York (the first surgeon was located elsewhere) and initially chose Dr. Engler because of all the wonderful reviews his previous patients had written. When I met Dr. Engler for my consultation, all the wonderful comments were confirmed. He seemed very warm and kind, and I felt like he immediately understood what I wanted. He was very honest about what he thought would be best for my body and I appreciated the thought he gave to my individual circumstances. Truthfully, it felt like I didn’t even have to explain myself very much. Dr. Engler just got it. I made my surgery appointment with Dr. Engler and was in the operating room two weeks later. I finally felt like I was ready to make this happen, and I was completely confident that Dr. Engler would do a beautiful job. All of his previous patients had results that looked gorgeous, natural, and perfect for their body. I had no doubt that I would experience the same thing. On the day of my surgery I was very nervous. Dr. Engler and all of the staff were very kind and supportive and I felt like they genuinely wanted to make me feel better. Everything went perfectly and the first week of my recovery was a piece of cake. Dr. Engler checked on me several times a day; it was nice knowing that he really cared about how I was doing. Currently, I am about three weeks post-op and couldn't be happier with my decision! Throughout the entire recovery process Dr. Engler and his staff have been unbelievably warm and caring. My results are amazing and I know that they are going to become even more beautiful over time. I am completely happy with my decision and even happier that I chose Dr. Engler for this important milestone. All of my previous fears were thrown out the window with this experience. For the first time since I was a young teenager, I am not consumed every day with an endless parade of boob thoughts. I don’t have that nagging feeling in the back of my mind. I feel like I finally have the body that I was meant to have, and my mind is at peace. Maybe the best way to describe it is that I feel more like myself, even though that may not make any sense. I realized that changing yourself doesn't mean that you don't love yourself. Having the self-awareness and confidence it takes to move forward with plastic surgery meant that I knew what I wanted and what would make me happy. And if finding happiness isn't loving yourself, then I don't know what is. I owe all the happiness that I gained from my breast augmentation to Dr. Engler and his staff. I'm not sure that I would have had such a positive experience with anyone else. Thank you!

love my face, May 30, 2015, 3:37 pm
Reviewer: Douges888

For some time I have been very unhappy with the bags under my eyes... Then my doctor told my wife that Dr Engler had removed her bags and fixed her eye lids. She looked great. So off I went for a consultation with Dr Engler. He told me about the procedure and showed me before and after pictures... His manor and his staff were most curtiest and very assuring. The procedure several weeks later was not only easy for me but much less painful as I never had to take a perscribed Vicoden. It's over two months now and I love it. Not one person said anything like" what did u do, or you look different". That's what I was worried about. I basically wanted to look the same, but just bettered

42 looking 30!, May 18, 2015, 12:08 pm
Reviewer: yogarae72

I am 42 yrs. old and having been seeing Dr. Engler for 5 years. He is absolutely AMAZING, I get Botox and fillers a couple of times a year. The best part is I’m always mistaken to be in my early thirties!!! To say that I am happy with his services is a gross understatement. He is amazingly knowledgeable, uses the latest techniques and has a keen eye. His is also very honest, and doesn’t let me do too much. He makes me look like the best version of myself, young and refreshed. I often joke and say I’m doing preventive maintenance on my face. His staff is friendly and accommodating. His office conveniently located. What else could you ask for: the BEST doctor with the best staff, in the best city, helping you look like your best self!!

5 star experience , May 11, 2015, 8:23 pm
Reviewer: Patient28

I could not have asked for a better experience with my surgeries. Dr. Engler and his staff were professional, courteous, and forthright from start to finish. My first surgery was breast augmentation in 2007. I had done quite a bit of research and ultimately decided to go with Dr. Engler based on his experience and the level of comfort I felt during my consultation. He was honest and realistic in terms of my expected results and spent quite a bit of time with me explaining all the details. I decided to go with a larger implant (450cc silicone) and the incision was made around my nipple. I had very little pain and no bruising after the surgery. My recovery went very well and quick to say the least; I was back to normal activity in 2 weeks. I have no scarring and my implants have withstood the test of time. I'm very pleased with the results even years later. I get many compliments on how natural my breasts look and feel, even my gynecologist was extremely impressed with Dr. Engler's work. My second surgery was labiaplasty in 2008. I had asymmetrical large labia that was causing painful intercourse and chaffing. I had developed quite a bit of scar tissue from all the irritation and was very self conscious about it. This was a relatively new surgery at the time and Dr. Engler was able to remove excess labia folds and make the area symmetrical. My recovery was relatively painless and I am very happy with the end result. Not only does the area look aesthetically pleasing but I have absolutely no pain, chaffing, or scarring. I have referred many family members and friends to Dr. Engler and everyone is very pleased with their experience and results. I would highly recommend Dr. Engler to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. After having two life changing surgeries with Dr. Engler, I have a sense of self confidence and feel like a new woman. I'm so grateful for my both of my experiences and would not be the person I am today without him.
