Procedure(s) I had done:   None


As a result of a wrist surgery I had a five-inch scar on my left arm.
About one inch of the scar did not heal well and it turned into what is
called a hypertrophic scar. This is a raised ugly scar, which also gave me
some pain and was creating tension in the skin (pulling the skin).

After about a year I decided to do something about it, and so I looked for a
good plastic surgeon. That's how I met Dr Engler. He consulted me and told
me that I need a procedure called Z-plasty.Then he did a drawing, explained
the procedure, and told me that it will relieve the tension, stop the pain and
it will make it look much better.

Now, almost five month after the procedure, I can verify that everything Dr.Engler
told me was true. I was very impressed with Dr Engler and I am very pleased with
the results, which are remarkable.

Dr.Engler is passionate about what he is doing; he is an expert in his field,
an author of books on plastic surgery, and a man with a warm personality.
He is also a good leader as shown by the fact that he selected a wonderful,
very professional staff that makes one feel among friends.
