Before choosing the surgeon for my breast augmentation, I have done extensive research on many doctors and their practices for many months. I have also contacted a few offices before setting up appointments, so that I can get a feel of the office staff and their attitudes. Before actually meeting Dr. Engler himself, I knew that he was the surgeon for me. Just by looking at his work on his website, I was completely confident in his work. After meeting him, I was certain that I was going to have him do my surgery. He was very friendly and approachable. He was also honest and realistic with the breast implant outcomes/decisions, a trait which I’m sure some doctors lack.

The surgery itself wasn't scary or nerve wrecking. The anesthesia was administered and I was knocked out before I knew it, and I woke up to a new body. Although I was extremely lethargic after waking up, I could tell that I was being taken care of. Dr. Engler and his staff made sure that I would be in good hands when I was being picked up to go home.

The recovery period wasn’t as bad as one thinks it is. As expected, the first few days were the worst- the expected fatigue, soreness, and tightness. Dr Engler called me everyday to follow up. Even though I missed some of his calls at first (due to the constant sleeping as a result of the anesthesia), he left voicemails to make sure everything was okay. Although not completely recovered, I was back to work in five days. Now at three weeks post op, the swelling has gone down significantly, and I look and feel great. There are some arm movements that are still a bit uncomfortable and it takes time to adjust to, but other than that, I already sometimes forget that I even have implants. It just feels amazing.
