My Mother is a Registered Nurse and only trusts the opinions of credited medical professionals. She was looking to get the bags under her eyes removed, the many years of working night shifts wore on her and she wanted a change to feel beautiful again. After hours of research, she found Dr.Engler and read a testimonial from an Anesthesiologist that worked with him and decided after years of working with different Plastic surgeons to get her surgery done by him. To my mother this spoke volumes. She made an appointment with Dr.Engler and I tagged along, since I had some procedures in mind myself.
As soon as we entered the office we were greeted with a friendly and welcoming smile by the beautiful receptionist, Arlene. She made us feel at home, she inquired about the procedures we were interested in and raved about how great Dr. Engler was! As soon as he walked into the room he made us feel at ease with his confidence and knowledge. We informed him what we wanted and he informed us on the best route for the best results. He took his time with us and made sure he knew exactly what we wanted. What I appreciated about him was that no matter how extreme my mother and I wanted to go he reassured us the best way was going minimal and looking naturally beautiful. And that is exactly what we got!
My mother looks younger and more beautiful than ever before. Her confidence is through the roof and she feels happy, which makes me happy. She works so hard as a nurse and she loves her job and I was so proud she was able to do something to reward herself. With the bags under her eyes removed, eyelid lift, and a neck lift her face is gorgeous. My mother has honey colored eyes and before you couldn’t tell how radiant they were with the skin covering it, now her eyes shine! She is able to wear eye make-up, which she never did before, and she loves this new life! The best part is that she still looks like herself and no one questions if she had a procedure done because she truly looks naturally beautiful, which is what Dr.Engler promised. Another doctor she went to see wanted to do a lot more to her face than Dr.Engler, he wanted to do an entire face lift! However that is not what she needed to look natural and beautiful. If you want a natural look that will compliment your features Dr.Engler is the way to go.
After I saw how successful my Mothers surgery was, I jumped on board. I was 24 when I got my surgery done and until then I was patiently waiting since High School for my breasts to grow in. They never did. I was an A cup but always wore B and C cups because my breasts did not match my curvy body. Having such small breasts did not make me feel like the woman I knew I was. I also wanted to get my nose done, I felt it always overpowered my face and when meeting new people I felt very self-conscious about it. I wanted to feel confident and happy like mother did.
Dr.Engler performed both procedures the same day! I was so nervous going into surgery but the staff welcomed me with such excitement and warmth that I immediately felt at ease and knew I was in the right hands. When I woke up everyone was there to greet me and reassured everything went great. I went home and that night Dr.Engler called me to make sure I got home okay and to see how I was feeling. He called me every day for almost two weeks straight to see how I was doing and feeling. This alone helped so much with the recovery because I knew I could express any concern I had and he would be there to hear me and reassure me.
Today I feel like a new woman. I recently went to Miami and wore a bikini top with no padding and felt like a total babe! I enjoy taking pictures now because with my new nose I look great in every angle. I feel like my surgeries compliment me and they look natural, which is so important to me. I am so happy I went to Dr.Engler he truly in the best in all of New York and I would recommend him to everyone I know!
