After being overweight my entire life, 15 years ago I decided I was tired of hating my body and feeling insecure; trapped in a shell that wasn’t the real me. Over a few years I lost about 80 pounds, and I was so proud of myself, I felt and looked like a different person. However, I still felt trapped in this unattractive, sagging body. I felt like I had worked so hard but couldn’t truly enjoy it; I would never fully move forward without shedding the remnants of my old self. I had thought about cosmetic surgery over the years, but wasn’t in a place to move forward with it. Finally, after a several years, and after taking off even more weight, I decided to pursue the thing I had been dreaming about. A friend of mine had a tummy tuck and recommended some websites which might be helpful. It was then that I found Dr. Engler. I selected him based on his credentials and inspiring testimonials.
I was nervous and self-conscious going for the consultation, however as soon as I entered his office, I was immediately put at ease. Dr. E. has the most amazing staff; they are so friendly, caring and welcoming. At my first meeting with Dr. E I knew I had found my surgeon; even though I hated my body he made me feel so good about myself and helped me see the possibility of what my body and future could be like. One thing that I really appreciated was Dr. E’s honesty and his genuine concern for what was best for me. He didn’t try to sell me or push; he simply provided me with the information I needed to make an informed decision. I left his office feeling so happy, I finally saw the possibility of what I wanted for so long beginning to come to fruition. I decided to proceed with a tummy tuck and a breast lift, with breast augmentation to follow. From the consultation, through the procedures and the follow up care Dr. E. and his staff were absolutely amazing; the personal care I received was more than I ever expected. Dr. E. was always available to see me, take my calls, etc. I truly feel without him and his staff, the experience would have been completely different.
And now, after full recovery, I can say that Dr. Engler changed my life; for the first time ever, I feel comfortable in my own skin, my body no longer feels like the enemy. I feel like I can finally let go of the past and move forward with the life I want. My body actually matches my personality and my lifestyle. I no longer feel self-conscious and don’t hold myself back; I recently went to the spa an actually changed in the open locker room without feeling absolute anxiety. I am able to go shopping and everything fits; and more importantly I don’t have to mask any part of my body, I can actually tuck my shirt and look amazing. These things may seem small but to me, they are everything. I’m in love with my new body, and I owe it all to Dr. E. I could never adequately convey what he’s given to me, he changed my body and my life; he allowed me to be me.
I would recommend Dr. E. to anyone considering cosmetic surgery; I know it would be the best decision they could make.
