Nineteen years ago, I was 29 years of age when I decided to have a Tummy Tuck after the birth of my two children. Being a perfectionist, and even though I live in Trinidad and Tabago, I researched for the best Board certified surgeon in nyc.

I visited Barnes and Nobles to get some other literature when I found this book written by Dr Allan called ,The Slim Book of Liposuction.

I read the entire book which was very informative and helped me to decided on my best choice of surgeons. I called DR.Engler’s office and booked for a consultation.

As I entered the office his staff warmly greeted me . I felt comfortable. Soon after I met Dr.Engler for the first time. I was nervous, but surprisingly when I saw Dr.Engler I felt a really good aura .

In his office all my questions was answered with care and compassion yet very professional. I told him that I wanted a tummy tuck which he recommended also liposuction for a much better results.

After my surgery Dr Engler called me several times on his cell phone, He was also available even after hours to take my calls to put me at ease.

Now I am 48 years old and again decided to have another procedure . This time an eye lift. Without hesitation I called my doctor again and got a date.

I booked my 5 hour flight to Manhattan and the next 2 days I was in his office. As I opened the door I was greeted by his welcoming staff and then to my big surprise a big hug from Dr Engler whom I wanted to see after 19 years

Well I thought a lot about how he might look approximately two decades after, to my surprised Dr Engler just look like the person I met 19 years ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I felt wonderful to see him again. He took me right away into his office to discuss my new procedure. Dr Engler again told me the best options. I believed in his professionalism and decided to have the procedure done .

Two days later after my surgery with some lipo suctions in other areas , I had some discomforts but bearable. Dr Engler staff was at my bed side when I opened my eyes, I think I talked a lot and even laugh with her.

Soon after Dr Engler came in and said “how is my Caribbean friend doing ?“ He told me the surgery went well and I remembered he walk me into the waiting cab.

He called me many times to answer all my questions, but one thing stood out in my mind I got a big surprised when he actually visited me in my hotel room 3 days after to check up and talk to my cousin Kerry about the home care and medication I needed since I had to travel back to Trinidad .

As we talked I told him I read his other book and realized I was lucky to have done my surgery with one of the finest surgeons. he was not fazed by his accomplishment at all!!!!!!!!!

I also learned that he design( 2 ) instruments for the use of cosmetic surgery. he had these instruments patented as a means of authentication. This certifies his expertise and position amongst the top 18 surgeons In the WORLD. It has been over a month now ,I am extreamly satisfied with my surgery . I look great and got back a sense of confidence .

I Have tremendous respect for Dr Engler not only because of him being one of the finest surgeons but because of the great human being he is .

I take this opportunity to wish him all the happiness and love throughout his life, and may he continue to prosper in all his Endeavour.
