For as far back as I can remember, I have always wanted breast implants. I did not want them for any other reason other than my own self confidence. My best friend had recently used Dr. Engler for breast augmentation and had nothing but amazing things to say about him. I made an appointment for a consult with him first, and two other Doctors after the appointment I had scheduled with him. I have to start by saying, his receptionist is great. She was so personable and really made me feel comfortable. I cannot say the same about the other Doctor's offices I had called.
When I went to the office for my consult, again the receptionist welcomed me with a beautiful smile, making me feel completely comfortable. Finally, I got to meet with Doctor Engler. I spoke to him for a while about the different options and what I wanted my end result to look like. He was great, giving me different options, letting me know his professional opinion on what he thought was best. He made me feel so comfortable about going ahead with this procedure. The nurse who accompanies him in the room is also all smiles and just wonderful! After I left the office, I went home and actually canceled the other two appointments I had with the other two Doctors. I just knew there was no way I would feel as comfortable and confident with them as I did Dr. Engler.
Finally, the big day!! I cannot even put into words how wonderful this experience was. I am such a big baby. Let's just say I was more scared about the pre-operative blood work than the surgery itself! Well, once I got there, I really calmed down a lot. I knew I was in the best hands with Dr. Engler and his staff. The anesthesiologist even numbed my hand for me before placing in the IV. Before I knew it, I was waking up. I am not even a week post-op and the results are phenomenal to say the least! Dr. Engler called every single day, numerous times a day, making sure everything was okay. Please, I cannot stress this enough, if you are looking for an amazing plastic surgeon, call Dr. Engler!
