I always had the idea since I was a teenager about getting breast augmentation surgery but never thought that I would actually go through with it. One always hears the risks and benefits of these procedures and is more scared about the bad outcomes than the good ones. Being a physician I think I am in general more skeptical than most and even more careful when it comes to choosing a surgeon. I live in a different state but had read such wonderful things about Dr. Engler that I thought it would be a good idea just to start off with a simple consultation. He was so quick to get back to me and more than open to having initial consultations via email and even skype to make it much more personal. Even after having an initial email consultation and having sent photos and getting feedback about the type of the procedure that I would need, Dr. Engler was still more than happy to meet me on a weekend that I happened to be in New York just to do a second consultation in person. He was incredibly warm and made me feel very comfortable, explaining how he would go about doing the procedure and an additional lift in my case. After this point Dr. Engler met me multiple times on the weekend and was incredibly accomodating to my work schedule to go back over the plans for my procedure and my post-operative care. Even post-operatively he changed his schedule to meet me immediately when I was concerned about more pain on one side of my breast than the other.

I have to say, despite only being one month out from the procedure, I absolutely love my new breasts! They are very natural looking and while others notice the subtle difference, it is not enough to make them question whether I had the procedure done or not. I am entirely pain free and had a very quick recover. Dr. Engler was with me every step of the way and called me multiple times daily post-op just to check to see how I was doing. He was always there to answer any of the numerous questions that I had post-op and to guide me through the recovery process. I have to say I was a little wary going into this procedure but I am SO glad that I did and I cannot recommend a better surgeon. He is incredibly supportive, very accomodating and very easy to get ahold of for any pre- and post-operative questions that you have...and let me tell you, you will have a lot! He has years of experience, which, having married a surgeon, I know is one of the most important and comforting things going into a procedure like this and from all of the pictures in his track record I can tell that others' augmentations turned out just as beautifully as mine did. I cannot thank Dr. Engler enough for helping me through this process and even now if I have small questions, despite being several weeks out, he is still more than willing and delighted to answer them. I think that if you're thinking about having this surgery than I highly recommend it and if you're thinking about a surgeon you should definitely consider Dr. E...I highly recommend him and couldn't be happier!
