I'm 43 years old and I have four kids - 18, 15, 6 and 4. My last two c-sections took a toll on my stomach. I had a kangaroo pouch that would not go away - no matter what I seemed to do. Last year I decided to begin my search for a plastic surgeon to get some advice on how to correct my problem. I consulted with several surgeons - all with good intentions and all with guarantees to make my body look 21 again. But there was always something missing. I wasn't sure what it was until I met Dr. Engler. It was the desire to get to know me. To build a relationship with me.

He went though great lengths to explain how the procedure works and why I would be a good candidate. When I made suggestions that didn't work for me or wasn't medically safe, he was honest. He didn't "yes" me. He gets it! He knew exactly what I was looking for and at the same time he recognized my insecurities and worked with them.

His staff is amazing! They are a reflection of what he represents - kindness and patience.

He's a brilliant surgeon and I've recommended a few of my close friends to him. They all want to know who made me look so fabulous - Dr. Engler!
