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.
