I scheduled quite a few consultations before choosing the doctor. After meeting Dr. Engler I knew he would be the one performing my surgery. He is simply an AMAZING doctor. First of all, he is very caring and patient. Second of all, Dr. Engler is a knowledgeable, professional and an experienced surgeon. During our first consultation he answered my questions. He explained in detail the procedure itself and also informed me about possible complications, something two other doctors I went to were not too eager to do. We kept in touch till the day of the surgery because I had additional questions that Dr. Engler gladly and very quickly answered via email. It's great to have a doctor that can be contacted easily and gets in touch with you as soon as possible. The day of the surgery was a breeze, however the next few days were a bit painful. After the surgery Dr. Engler called me many times to make sure that I was recovering well. I have to admit that was very impressive. It made me feel safe both because I wasn't left alone and Dr. Engler is a very gifted surgeon and a wonderful human being. I do recommend him to any woman considering breast augmentation surgery. I am absolutely thrilled with the results of my surgery. What else can I tell you? I look AWESOME because Dr. Engler did a terrific job. Thank you for Dr. Engler. You are absolutely THE BEST!
This man is a genius. I’ll admit I’m a bit of a perfectionist and before choosing a doctor to perform my breast augmentation I thoroughly researched all the doctors in Manhattan and sought out the best. After narrowing down my search to the top plastic surgeons in Manhattan, I scheduled many consultations before picking a doctor. Dr. Engler was clearly the right choice. His superior level of experience and expertise was evident from the very beginning. He patiently and honestly answered all my questions and eased my concerns. Unlike most surgeons, he actually has a great personality too! He and his lovely staff run a very smooth office and make you feel at ease. I am absolutely ecstatic about my results and have eagerly recommended him to all my friends.
A simple thank you is not enough for the magnificent breast implants and wonderful care I have received from you and you staff. You respect and recognize the fact that each of us has our own perception of the “ideal” and you don’t try to force your preferences on us. From the very first day, you (and indeed everyone who works in your office, who are all lovely beyond belief) have made me feel completely at ease. I knew very shortly after meeting you that I wanted you to perform my surgery. Most of the other PSs I spoke with tried to sell me on other procedures too which was frustrating (not to mention unsolicited!). On the other hand, you have always been patient, understanding and straightforward. I’m amazed at how readily you made yourself available (phone & office), at all times and how you continued to do so after the surgery. As you know I’m beyond thrilled with the outcome and feel very fortunate that I found you. My breasts are spectacular. From the calls to the consultation, to the surgery to the follow-ups, every single person involved has been a complete pleasure to work with. There are no words to describe how grateful I am. Thank you for providing such excellent, gentle and skilled services. I am so happy with my results - my only regret is that I can’t show them off to the whole world! They’re PERFECT. (And we both know how far from perfect they were!) Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart (now beating under a really beautiful left breast)!
I always had issues with my body when I was growing up. Constantly dieting caused my weight to fluctuate over the years and as a result my breasts began to sag. Aside from dropping, they were uneven and unattractive. I always had to wear a bra and bathing suit tops had to fit like an under wire bra for me to wear them. When I reached my thirties, I finally became happy with my weight by eating healthy and exercising. Unfortunately, neither of those things would change the look and feel of my breasts. When I turned 33, I decided to consider breast augmentation. I was unsure whether or not I would need implants or a lift to get my desired results. After doing extensive research on the Internet, I went to see Dr. Engler for a consultation. I knew right away he was the doctor for me. It turned out that to achieve the results I wanted I would have to have both a lift and implants. Dr. Engler was very upfront about the scarring I would have from doing both, but I decided it was worth it. I was right. The results were amazing! I really put myself in the hands of Dr. Engler and let him guide me on the size and type of implants. I wanted to look natural and they definitely do. The only thing unnatural about them is that they are just about perfect! My experience with Dr. Engler from the moment I walked into his office was a wonderful experience. His staff is friendly and always available as is Dr. Engler. I have never met a doctor that is so warm and goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. I honestly feel like I have known him for years. I still receive the same warm welcome even months after my surgery. The procedure has done wonders for me. For the first time in my life I can truly say I LOVE MY BODY. Thank you Dr Engler, you are a genius!
Dr. Engler was one of three surgeons I had consultations with regarding Breast Reduction surgery to alleviate the extreme back pain caused by a combination of my extra large breasts and back injuries in connection with a car accident. Although I felt completely comfortable and immediately trusted Dr. Engler, I went against my better judgment and chose another doctor for financial reasons. Well, I paid a much higher price, as the surgery was a disaster, which resulted in infection, misplaced nipples, and misshaped breasts with ripples. All the while, my doctor only called once to check on my progress and seemed disinterested when I went in for checkups or called asking questions and trying to explain issues I was having (excessive bleeding, staples still in, etc.). After seven months and the realization that unless I did something my breasts would be a mess for life, I went back to Dr. Engler for another consultation. From the moment I returned to his offices, I knew I was going to be given the kind of care we all hope to receive from our doctors. The staff was friendly and helpful; Dr. Engler was kind, patient, informative, honest – everything you want in a doctor, especially one assisting you with such a sensitive and serious - and embarrassing - issue. He explained that it might not be easy to right the wrongs I had been victim to with my previous doctor; however, he would do his best. Now, post surgery, I am a new woman! I can look at myself in the mirror without crying over what my breasts looked like. Dr. Engler was able to correct what had been done, and I can't believe how great I look. He took the time to care for me, his patient; answering my questions, explaining in detail how the surgery went, calling me at home several time post surgery to make sure I was okay and wasn’t having any difficulty. His staff was always helpful, friendly and accommodating. I can’t say enough about Dr. Engler, he is the kind of Doctor you always hope for, and I thank him for all he has done to help/care for me as well as restore some of my faith that there are still Doctors out there who care about and for their patients
I consulted with Dr. Engler to see if he would be able to correct the problems with my previous breast surgery - and the answer is YES. Now I look fabulous, and this is the way I hoped I would look from the start. Within a year of my original surgery I had developed rippling on my right breast, an indentation on my left breast, and had too large a space between my breasts. I was very aware of these issues as they were noticeable both in and out of clothes. Apparently, my surgeon had implanted the wrong implants for my body. A friend told me about Dr. Engler. At first I was hesitant to contact him because I live a little outside New York but then I did, and I have to say that my decision to meet with Dr Engler was definitely the right choice. Dr. Engler spent lots of time with me discussing my options. I met with him THREE times to go over all the choices, including the size of the implant, silicone versus saline, the profile of the implant, the incision, etc. I have three pages full of the implant dimensions and the measurements we made. He also has a great office staff. They are very pleasant and easy to speak with. I scheduled my surgery right after meeting him for the first time. The surgery itself went very well. I had very little pain, and the entire staff did a great job of keeping me comfortable and calm. Dr Engler's post-op communication with me was impeccable. He called me every day and walked me through the entire recovery period. How do I look? Magnificent, if I may say so! I would recommend Dr Engler to any woman who is thinking of having breast augmentation, whether for the first time or to correct what was previously done. Dr. Engler is very honest, straight forward and everything you expect from your surgeon.
Thank you, Dr. Engler.

Dr. Engler is as great a plastic surgeon as he is a human being.  I was very resourceful when it came to finding the right surgeon to perform my breast augmentation, and at one point I even made four consultation appointments for one day!  Many of the surgeons were eager to advertise themselves by constantly calling me back or trying to give me a bargain.  But Dr. Engler was very professional and I knew he was the right choice, because in addition to having extensive experience and an outstanding resume, he was warm, informative and very attentive to my questions/concerns.  After watching Dr. Engler literally change the lives of the women on the TV shows, I was very moved and I knew that I wanted to be like those women who were ecstatic about their plastic surgery makeovers. I wanted to be very happy, with the best possible results, and Dr. Engler did no less than a perfect job! He was always readily accessible and very patient. He is very detailed and meticulous about his work that until the very day of the surgery, he had me come in several times to make absolutely certain of the size that I wanted. More than anything, Dr. Engler is the surgeon you can trust wholeheartedly. He made me feel very confident about my choices, and I felt very safe and comfortable knowing that I was under the care of someone who made sure that everything was done with precision.
When I woke up post-surgery, the anesthesia kept me dazed and I couldn't walk straight towards my ride, which was waiting for me outdoors. Dr. Engler placed me in a wheelchair and wheeled me outside and helped me get in the car. My friend, who was there to support me, was surprised to see just how far Dr. Engler would go out of his way to make sure that his patients are well taken care of, even beyond his office. In fact, she told me she was shocked to witness the doctor himself assist me outside of the operating room when he could have sent any of his staff to help me out. It's just something you don't see everyday, and it speaks volumes about Dr. Engler's character. It didn't end there. Dr. Engler also called nearly daily via his cell phone to make sure that I was healing properly. I have never been under the care of a doctor who extends himself this far enough to make his patient completely at ease before, during and after surgery.  I also have to mention how warm and comforting the staff is; they are kind and personable so you always feel welcomed. My results are stellar! Everyone who has seen my breasts agrees that they are PERFECT! I'm already awaiting the warmer weather so that I can show them off! If you truly want to be HAPPY (and who doesn't?) with every aspect of your procedure, Dr. Engler is the one you can trust, to give you the body you want and to be there for you every step of the way. Dr. Engler, you ROCK!

Every year when summer came around, I would be so excited for school to be over, late nights out, and just time to hang out with friends. Still there was one thing that always bothered me… being at the pool and the beach in a bikini. Since I was little I always had a small framed body: thin legs, skinny arms, flat stomach, and worst of all, a flat chest. Nothing bothered me more then being around a group of friends who I thought looked awesome in a bathing suit and me feeling like I had the body of a fourth grader. I began feeling self-conscious and had a serious complex with how I looked. I stuffed my bra every day but it got so tiring. I had a talk with my parents and told them how I felt. At first they thought I was crazy but after seeing how serious I was, they agreed to take me to see a plastic surgeon. I was recommended to Dr. Engler and I went to meet with him.
As soon as I walked into the office, all of my nervousness disappeared because of the warm welcoming I got. The staff made me feel comfortable and reassured me that there was nothing wrong with improving myself by getting a boob job. I thought I would feel awkward being in a room topless, but Dr. Engler makes the whole experience exciting and easy.  My Mom was with me, and after she spoke with Dr. Engler, all of her doubts about me getting the surgery were thrown away.
On the day of my surgery I was both thrilled and anxious. However, once I slipped into my gown and met with the anesthesiologist, I became at ease. I met once again with Dr. Engler and his assistant who took me to the surgical room and as they talked to me, I became even more relaxed. At that point I was so ready to go! When it was over, I was taken into another room where I got excellent care until I was conscious enough to go home. The first two days in my opinion were the roughest, but definitely manageable. The rest of the week I felt pressure, but overall, not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. 
When I was all set and done, I put on a bikini, looked at myself in the mirror and couldn’t be happier! Every time I see myself in a bra or a low cut shirt, I just want to hug and kiss my doctor and his assistants who made it all happen!! If you are considering breast enlargement, I really encourage you to go for it. If you decide to get some kind of plastic surgery done, make sure you are 100% comfortable with your doctor. As for me, I couldn’t have asked for a better one!.

First, let me start by saying that I have never felt better about myself!  I am a 42 year old business professional who had thought about breast implants for many years.  My weight fluctuation over the years and my breasts were a source of embarrassment for me.  Being barely an “A” cup and suffering from that sagging skin we dieters know all about, I thought it was time to take care of myself more.  In my initial visit to Dr. Alan Engler I was immediately set at ease that he understood my situation.  He explained the entire procedure and invested a lot of time to help me understand my proportion, my ideal size and body structure.  This certainly helped me come to my decision on size and what to expect.  He and his staff made me feel comfortable every step of the way.  I had a positive attitude throughout the entire process as well as a sense of excitement.  Dr. Engler is very genuine and truly cares about giving his patients the best results.   I do not think I would have been as relaxed about the process had I not felt fully confident in Dr. Engler and his team.  The nurses and anesthesiologist were wonderful on the day of surgery and helped me to be completely at ease.  His office staff is delightful, well educated on patient needs and made my visits very comfortable.  Doctor Engler’s professionalism and his pride in his work, as an artist in his field, are overwhelming.   The process was simple, the results amazing and the best investment in “ME” I have ever made.  I am happy to say that I am a full “C” and I look natural and symmetric.  I would highly recommend Dr. Alan M. Engler.
