Dr Alan Engler was the first of a few surgeons I had chosen after doing a ton of research and narrowing down a much longer list. I don't like to judge people by their appearance, but there was something about the picture of him on his website. He just seemed so friendly and inviting. Well that not only turned out to be true for him, but also his entire staff. From the receptionist to even the anesthesiologist he worked with, everyone was as sweet as can be.

Dr Engler first impressed me with his bedside manner. He always made sure that I was comfortable. I loved that he listened to all of my concerns and answered my many questions with carefully thought out answers. His responses were always honest and thorough. He never made me feel like he was brushing my silly concerns aside, as I had previously experienced with another plastic surgeon.

So all this is great, but worthless if he isn't as talented as he is amicable, but he was! The surgery went without a hitch and was surprisingly painless. The recovery was equally quick and pain free. I'm sure all of his surgeries are free of recovery issues, but just to make sure, he called me twice a day, everyday for about five days following the procedure. I guess the biggest test of his talent would be the results. Well once again he didn't disappoint. Absolutely flawless. His suggestions of size and location of incision resulted in a pair of perfect breasts. They are perfectly even - he had to use two different sized implants to achieve that - and have almost no visible scar, and its only been one month since my surgery. He is truly talented at plastic surgery, and especially with breast augmentation, one of his specialties.
