As a woman, wife, and mother, there is something to be said about giving back to yourself once in awhile. Breast implants are something I knew I wanted, and something I needed (after having my first child), to get my confidence back. After researching online, asking countless friends their opinions, and finally consulting with Dr. Engler I knew I had made the right decision. Plastic surgery is a choice, so you want to make sure you choose the best doctor you can find! Please take the time to read my story below, so you too, can feel totally confident and pleased with your decision.
As a mother of two, I wanted to start my kids out the best I could, so I breast fed both of them. After I was done breastfeeding my chest was not nearly the size or the stature it once was. We all know what that means; saggy, stretch-marked boobs that look twice as old as you are!! After consulting with a few friends that had the surgery I knew this was something that would help me look and feel like I did just a few years ago.
I spent hours looking through photos of breast enhancements that looked natural, full and round (which is what I had and wanted back so badly!) and Dr. Engler’s name seemed to be a common occurrence. After finally getting up the courage I e-mailed his office. Much to my surprise I received an e-mail back in less than a day from Dr. Engler himself! I couldn’t believe it, the doctor actually contacting me directly? I didn’t think that was possible, usually a secretary or assistant is the one you hear from. This made me feel confident, and very comfortable, like I had made the right choice.
When I arrived at my consultation, (which I was late for, due to a snow storm), Dr. Engler and his staff were warm and welcoming. I new I wanted to be a full C, so I originally choose size 325cc’s. During my consultation with Dr. Engler and his very polite nurse they thought I needed a lift and a bigger implant to achieve the result I wanted. We then decided together 400cc’s would give me a better result. Also, though asymmetry is common, I had enough difference between my breasts so that Dr. Engler recommended implants for both sides and a crescent lift on only one side. Going to the office, which is only two blocks from Central Park in New York City, reassured me once again this was going to be a great experience! In my opinion the key with any surgery is the consultation and this couldn’t have been more thorough.
On the day of surgery I spoke with Dr. Engler (and his receptionist several times in between to make sure everything went as planned.) I arrived at his office, talked with Dr. Engler some more and off I went to the operating room. Next thing I new I woke up and was recovering with my new implants! The next day, Dr. Engler saw me again to see how I was healing. When he removed my bandages and bra I was amazed at what a saw….perfection, he did just what I wanted!!! My surgery was on a Thursday, I saw Dr. Engler Friday, and Saturday because he knew I wanted to get home (I live four hours from NYC) and he wanted to make sure I was feeling well. A Saturday follow up is unheard of from a doctor right? Well, not this one!
My results are simply amazing to say the least! My stretch marks gone! I now have perfectly round perky breasts that look and feel natural, no lost sensation! Choosing the right doctor is the most important part. Choose someone that makes you feel good about yourself that will get back to you immediately, who is friendly, honest, and who has done the surgery many times! I can’t believe the luck that I had. Not only does Dr. Engler have perfection in performance you couldn’t ask for a nicer man. I can’t say enough good things about my surgery, recovery and experience with Dr. Engler and his team. Contact him today and you will be another HAPPY CLIENT 
