As the wife of a cardiologist, I tend to research physicians thoroughly before I would bring myself or send my family to them. My husband and I are quite aware of what can and cannot occur during procedures. I am 46 and have had large breasts since my teens. After three children and gravity taking its toll, my breasts became pendulous and saggy. My husband and I concluded the time is now to reduce them. I found Dr. Engler after much research and then saw his glowing breast reduction pictures. Many plastic surgeons show numerous breast augmentations on their websites, but, few show breast reductions. Dr. E. shows his reductions and posts frontal and side views and they are phenomenal!!! From the first 5 minutes of my consultation I knew he was the man for the job. He said that he will reduce and lift the breasts so that they will be high and firm and much more proportional for my shape and lift the nipples as well. I brought my husband down next for my pre op appointment. He asked Dr Engler about the technical and medical nature of the operation. It was 4 hours at his surgical suite under a deep sedation but not general anesthesia. We both were sooo happy the procedure would be done in that manner.
Let's cut to the chase-- My results are awesome. My breasts are firm and high with a beautiful shape. I look thinner and taller. My nipples point upwards. Their weightiness has gone. My neck pain was gone when I woke up from surgery!!! Ill be able to wear sports bras at the gym and strapless bras for dresses. Finally!!!!! Now, as I've said, Im a consummate researcher/googler etc. Ive seen horrendous pictures online from other plastic surgeons----bruising, dimpling asymmetry etc. Ive had none of that, and my scars are not eye catching. My recuperation was great. Dr. E. checked in a couple times a day with myself and husband and gave us his cell for any concerns. I was tired for the next couple of days without any pain per se and with rest was back to my old self chauffeuring 3 kids around by day 7!
Dr. Engler is a gem. He is a gentleman, scholar, and artist. Obviously, everyone has some anxiety before any surgery, but Dr. E has a way of calming one down.He is very confident in his abilities but never comes off stand-offish. His anesthesiologist was wonderful. I did not have any reaction to the anesthesia and he also was kind and professional with a lovely personality. Dr. Engler's nurse, Katy is great, with a lovely demeanor. I think his secretary, Arlene, is very friendly, competent and helpful. I was able to ask may questions and never did I feel that they felt bothered. If you are looking for a NYC plastic surgeon and office that makes you feel special and gives you beyond your desired results, call Dr. Engler.
