MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

The idea of having a breast reduction was one that I had “played” with for years. At 5’2 and 115 lbs, my breasts were unproportional to the rest of my body. Once I had finally decided to go ahead with the procedure, I did my research and came across Dr. Engler. He had amazing credentials and was highly recommended, so I scheduled a consultation. As soon as I walked in I felt immediately at ease with both his staff and him. Not only did he answer all of my questions frankly, he also listened to my concerns and was realistic about the kind of results I should expect. I initially wanted to go much smaller than I was, but the doctor told me that it would look unnatural. He gave me practical advice on what size would look most natural and still be worth the surgery. All this without even knowing whether I’d be back to schedule the surgery with him!
After the second consultation I had with Dr. Engler I decided to “set the date”. The surgical process was explained to me in detail, as well as what I should do pre- and post-operatively. The day before the surgery I was a nervous bundle of energy. The actual surgery itself was seamless. Immediately following the surgery, Dr. Engler walked me through the recovery process, sometimes calling 2-3 times a day to see how I was recovering and whether I had any questions. I could not be happier with my results and can honestly say that if you are considering cosmetic surgery, search no more. He is extremely professional, caring and a genuinely wonderful man. Thank you Dr. Engler!
