Having thought about and researched liposuction procedures and facilities thoroughly, I met with Dr. Engler for a consultation. He patiently answered all of my questions and concerns, not just throughout the initial consultation, but from then on forward to this very day.

What made me choose Dr. Engler was not just his reputation, but his honesty during my assessment. He told me to exactly what to expect and not to expect in regards to my results and never pushed me to make a decision.

Between deciding to have the surgery and the surgery itself, I had many questions and concerns arise. Dr. Engler, Arlene and Katie took as much time as I needed to answer my questions, and on the day of the surgery, I was greeted by people who were genuinely excited for me and for what was ahead of me post-op.

When people truly love what they do, it makes a difference. You can see that in Dr. Engler and his staff. I will be the first to admit that I am a terrible patient! But the staff was wonderfully calm and knowledgable which helped ease my concerns quickly. Dr. Engler followed up with me and my mother, who was taking care of me, everyday for 2 weeks after my surgery until my follow-up. After my follow-up, Dr. Engler continued to check in on me regularly as my healing progressed.

3 months post-op, I am daily amazed by my new shape. Reminded that this is a team effort, eating and working out regularly have helped me optimize the shape Dr. Engler gave me. I went from being constantly mistaken as a pregnant woman on the subway and offered a seat, to feeling comfortable in a bathing suit without a cover up! That is huge, and I owe so much of it to this team.

It was important to me that my doctor not just be good at what he does but cares for the patient as much as he does the results, and I was very lucky to find that here.

Thanks to Dr. E, Arlene, and Katie!
