MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

After dropping 110 lbs & being enveloped in an unsightly mass of loose skin that left me miserable, 3 of my doctors independently referred me to the same plastic surgeon.."the best of the best - Dr. Alan Engler". During my initial consultation I was treated like royalty with respect and kindness by the doctor and his warm, engaging staff. Dr. Engler assessed my complex case of upcoming multiple procedures taking into context my age (61), health, lifestyle and counseled me about realistic goals and expectations. For my part, the mental & physical mindset for such a daunting transformation played a vital role in my preparation. Neither Dr. Engler nor I had any idea how quickly my body would heal after every procedure! I was very impressed during every one of my preops as Dr. Engler took meticulous measurements, marking me up and constructing tool guides on site in anticipation of options that could crop up during surgery (he proved correct). I have never met a surgeon with his attitude & stamina. Dr. Engler always put me at ease and I was never fearful. He always explained the technical aspects of each surgery to my satisfaction. Dr. Engler surpassed my expectations. Having undergone: circumferential body lift, brachioplasty, circumferential thigh lift, breast lift plus removal of gobs of skin on my back & sides, I have attained Goddess status! I am stunned as is everyone else with the outstanding mind boggling results & the awesome surgical wizardry of Dr. Engler, who just so happens to be one of the most caring, loving, individuals I've been fortunate to meet. Most importantly, my self esteem and confidence has ben restored. I embrace life with a new perspective and relish each day to the max. I owe it all to the genius & artistry of Dr. Engler.
Without any reservation, I highly recommend Dr. Engler, who
possesses the skill & expertise to handle such complex procedures as the ones I've undergone. C. Smith
