MY PERSONAL REVIEW
 

 

I was 28 years old, a mother of two, with the chest of what felt like a 60 year old. For 4 years my husband did not see me with my top off. I poured myself into researching the very best doctor I could find. Who could make me feel like me again? I was extremely comfortable in my skin pre-children. Even after I had my children I loved my body, EXCEPT my chest. That was not as forgiving. Thankfully my search came to an end when one name kept popping up in my quest to find “the one.” To my surprise one of my best friends had just went through a breast implant procedure. Her case was much different than mine. She was my age but a size A cup. When I saw her results not only was I amazed at how real they looked, I was shocked when I found out that it was Dr. Engler who preformed the surgery. I knew then he was “the one.” I made my appointment that day. I had gone on many consultations before Dr. Engler so I knew what I was in for. Well, he proved me wrong. He took my case, researched what would be perfect for me, had an interior struggle with himself over the very best approach, and really understood exactly what I wanted to gain from my breast implants. He never gave me false impressions that I would be exactly what I was pre-children. My body went through an amazing experience having my children. These imperfections are my battle scars and I should be proud to wear them! He promised me that I would look in the mirror and love what I saw. That I would feel comfortable again in front of my husband, and that I would feel like a 28 year old again. He was right on the money. After fully healed I was back to me. I could not believe how real looking/feeling they were. I sang his praise to anyone who would listen. My husband on many occasions would give me a high five and say, “thank you Dr. Engler, I got my wife back.” I never thought I would have such a success story. I look at other women who were not as lucky as me. I recently begged my friend to go to Dr. Engler for a breast augmentation surgery. She only had my results to go on and that was all she needed. However, after visiting Dr. Engler and absolutely loving him she was caught in between two Dr’s. Her father was paying for the surgery and his good friend was a plastic surgeon. With the desperation of wanting to fix her chest and the lack of money, she had no choice but to go to the other doctor. She is now more unhappy with herself post surgery than she was before. Since then she has been back to see Dr Engler who is helping her to correct the mistakes of another. I have never been so pushy with others to go see a doctor than I am with Dr. Engler. My entire experience from pre to post surgery was incredible. The staff is comforting, accommodating and personable. I happen to be an extremely nervous person when it comes to medical procedures. Dr. Engler’s level of care after my surgery was shocking. He called me every 4 hours the first 2 days I was home. I called him in the middle of the night when I was nervous about something and he talked to me and helped me feel better. We emailed for about a solid month on how I was feeling and looking. He answered all my annoying questions with honestly and humor. If I can leave you with one piece of advice it would be this. Even if you are unsure about who is the right Dr. for you, take the time to visit him. Hear what he has to say. Listen to his wisdom. He is a master in his craft. It is rare these days to come across a doctor with such warmth and compassion. It was refreshing to me! What he did for my life is nothing I could ever repay him for. Thank you Dr. Engler for giving me my confidence back!
