After having a child 2 years ago and undergoing the body altering effects of pregnancy, my wife was considering to have breast augmentation, but we were always nervous about the thought of starting this journey. I am a Registered Nurse in New York and collaborated with my wife in the search of information about this type of procedure. I researched many surgeons both in and out of New York City and compiled a list of the doctors that I wanted to meet. However, upon reading reviews of Doctor Engler, I decided to meet him first, which turned out to be the best decision.

We initially called the office and our first impression was one that has stuck with us throughout this experience. The staff is very professional, courteous and patient in helping us schedule our first visit and follow up appointments. When we met Dr. Engler, we were immediately put at ease and felt that we have found our true specialist on the first attempt. My wife instantly felt comfortable with Dr. Engler who took the time to answer all our questions thoroughly, professionally and provided us with realistic goals. My wife was given personalized goals that were tailored professionally to meet her specific aesthetic needs.

However, after Dr. Engler spent so much time with us during the initial free visit, there was never any pressure placed on us to book the surgery or a follow up visit. I remember leaving the office and hearing my wife tell me that we do not have to look any further we found the perfect doctor. The scheduling of the surgery was made trouble-free by the staff who went above and beyond to meet our preparation needs. We met with Dr. Engler an additional time and were given a booklet that systematically explained the pre and post operative phases, including the recovery period.

Finally, the day of the surgery came and my wife was scheduled to undergo a mastopexy with breast augmentation. The pre operative experience was wonderful as Dr. Engler and staff were very attentive to my wife's needs. The surgery was performed successfully and my wife was ecstatic about her breasts. The end result was a 375cc silicone implants with placement under both breast muscles. After we left the office, Dr. Engler personally wheeled my wife to our car and assisted her into the seat and called us at home an hour later to see how she was doing. The first night, I was in amazement, because my wife was in a minimal amount of pain and was walking around a couple of hours later. Dr. Engler established a wonderful level of communication with us, as evidenced by his 2-3 phone calls a day to see how she was doing and to answer any questions that might have arised.

When the doctor called us to schedule our first post operative appointment, I was unable to take my wife on the days he suggested. So Dr. Engler, once again, went above and beyond for us, and opened his office on Sunday just to see my wife. Even though it was only about 3-4 days after the surgery, when he performed the first dressing change, we could see the wonderful job he had done. My wife could not stop smiling and telling me how much she loved the way they turned out. My wife is currently two weeks post operatively and at this point the swelling has gone down drastically and the results keep improving. Needless to say, my wife is in love with her breasts and the fact we chose Dr. Engler for this procedure. We highly recommended Dr. Engler to anyone that is considering plastic surgery, Dr. Engler goes beyond surgery and falls into the category of an artist.
