I was referred to Dr. Engler by my dermatologist. I’m a 52 year old male and have never had any kind of cosmetic surgery so I was a bit wary of the procedure to begin with. My main concern was that although my sagging eyelids were making me look older and tired, the results of eyelid surgery could actually be worse - leaving me with a stretched and surprised look. I didn’t want to look like a middle aged guy who’d had a bad eye job. Dr. Engler understood my reservations completely and was very assuring. He sent me home with some reading materials and at our next consultation walked me through his plan and the process step by step.

The operation was quick and painless, and since he was using a local anesthesia, Dr. Engler was able to talk to me during the entire procedure. The surgery and the healing process went exactly as expected and afterwards I was given the doctor’s cell phone number and he followed up with me every day, including over the weekend, to check on my progress. Two weeks later, as promised, I was totaly healed. The results were amazing, better than I had imagined. My eyes looked more youthful and rested but still perfectly natural. Though the before and after pictures illustrate a dramatic difference/improvement when I attended a family reunion shortly after my surgery not one person suspected that I had any work done.

In addition to doing exceptional work Dr. Engler’s office is clean, comfortable and very private. His staff is friendly and professional. It was an excellent experience all the way around.
