I am now the third person in my family that Doctor Engler has performed a breast augmentation on – and that includes my aunt who was able to breastfeed two babies after her implants. I am a 23 year old girl and I had been wanting a breast augmentation for some time now but was nervous about several issues, all of which Doctor Engler put to rest. First, and foremost, I was nervous about having a result that looked horribly fake like a majority of the breast augmentation jobs out there. It was very important to me to not only look desirable on the beach, but also professional amongst my professors and fellow classmates in Graduate school. To solve this issue, Doctor Engler gave me a take home test that serves as a great measure of what size you are looking to be and what it will look like on you. My second fear was the anesthesia. Doctor Engler calmed my nerves by answering all of my questions and describing, in detail, what was going to happen the day of surgery. The anesthesiologist that Dr. Engler chooses to work with only calmed my nerves even more. In fact, the entire staff consists of friendly and professional individuals. The day of surgery, the anesthesiologist was just as kind as Doctor Engler. He answered all my questions ( and I came with a few) and even numbed my hand for me BEFORE placing in the IV, when I told him I was very afraid of needles. This is just a prime example of how Doctor Engler and his staff go out of their way to do whatever is in their power to make sure you are comfortable from step A-Z. The next thing I knew, I was being woken up by the sound of Doctors Engler's calm voice and the touch of his hand rubbing my own until my family was able to arrive. Not only did Doctor Engler call every single day for the following week to check up, but was even calling from his vacation! ( Yes, I spoke to this dedicated Doctor while he was at the airport). It is really comforting to hear from your doctor every day when you are feeling things you have never felt before and are able to calm your nerves and be told, for sure, what you are feeling is normal. The fact that I am the third person in my family that Doctor Engler has performed a breast augmentation surgery only shows that the results are so beautiful that once you see them you want that same surgeon doing your own. I literally said, " I want THOSE, on ME". I could go on and on about Doctor Engler, but just go in for your first consultation (you've got nothing to lose!) and I am confident the rest will be history.
