I am a Registered Nurse who is very hypercritical when it comes to my own medical treatment/outcomes. Eleven years ago I had liposuction done by another plastic surgeon, and that surgeon put my scars in very visible, undesirable locations. At that time my liposuction preceded having a baby, increased hectic lifestyle, increased stress, and all other things that contribute to us moms losing our figures. After years of struggling to regain my curvaceous figure back by means of dieting an exercising, I finally decided to explore a second round of liposuction. I discussed my plans for a "tune-up" with my close friend who is also an Operating Room RN who worked with Dr. Engler in the OR several years ago. She highly recommended seeking a consult with Dr. Engler because of how impressed she always been with his work. She also enforced that Dr. Engler paid very close attention to fine details, a characteristic I strongly possess myself. From the time I entered Dr. E's office, his staff was very warm and welcoming. My consult with Dr. E was so impressive that I knew he was the surgeon for me. His personality was very warm, bubbly, comforting, and very honest. He assured me he could achieve contoured results of my waist and buttocks without having to have fat transfers, something another plastic surgeon insisted I would need. I had my liposuction exactly 10 days ago and I must say, although I still have some swelling and bruising, I am LOVING the curves Dr. E gave back to me! I can not wait to see the final result! I already keep looking in the mirror and smiling! I am so excited to go shopping and wearing the clothes I would not have even looked at for several years. I can not thank Dr, E and his staff enough! This experience has been TOTALLY different from the one I had 11 yrs ago. Dr. E's staff arranged for a Certified Nurse Attendant (who was an angel) to come home with me and stay overnight. They also arranged for transportation home. All my incisions are in very concealed locations. My friends and family are already telling me "WOW" regarding my results. I am so impressed with Dr. E's work and his staff that I will forever recommend him to any family/friends seeking any cosmetic treatment/procedure, no matter how big or small!
