Mommy Makeover - Dr Engel and staff are top notch! I was very happy with my results and it's been 10 months. Dr Engel ran into some complications during surgery and even called my husband to discuss it before proceeding with the surgery. They care how you feel and make you feel so special! It has boosted my confidence 150%! More

Breast Implant Revision - Pleased with result. Was not in much pain after the first two days. Just had to take it easy. [Single best thing is...] That I actually was able to have it done. I really appreciated Dr Engle listening to what I wanted and not trying to talk me into something else. More

Liposuction - Dr. Engel is amazing!! He even commented, prior to surgery, that I would be a real challenge as my stomach was so large, I looked and was asked several times if I was [pregnant] (I'm 48yrs. old and my tubes have been tied). Dr. Engel even sent me for a cat scan to make sure there wasn't a tumor involved. Nothing was wrong and we couldn't understand why the fat just appeared in my stomach (I am a very small person and I looked hideous!). Dr. performed liposuction AND a tummy tuck at the same time. Afterwords, I won't mislead you)..the pain was very bad and since my surgery was so severe the pain lasted for over 7 mos. It has now been about a yr..no more pain and a flat stomach. Dr. Engel is truly an amazing surgeon. He also performed breast augmentation on my daughter, who weighs about 101 lbs. and has a very small frame..he chose a smaller size for the implants so they did not protrude anywhere on her tiny frame, even sat her up during surgery and tried different sized implants on her, and came up with a small size that fits her body perfectly and you could NEVER TELL her breasts had been done, they fit her perfectly!! Once again, I couldn't recommend Dr. Engel highly enough..he is the very best plastic surgeon Sarasota (or anywhere) has to offer! More

I recently had a breast augmentation w/ Dr. Engel and could not be happier w/ my results. From consultation to post-op I received the best care. All of the staff members are extremely professional and make you feel comfortable immediately. Dr. Engel was honest and knowledgable- he listened to every question I had. Although my doctor could not promise certain results we were able to satisfy all of my concerns and I'm so happy that I feel so much more comfortable in my own skin. I highly recommend this facility and especially Dr. Engel. More

Tummy Tuck - At 66 years old I am actually shopping for a 2 piece bathing suite!!! First time since High School. Also, I am proud to be seen by my husband rather than hiding. My clothes fit and look better too!My outcome of the surgery is very good. When I did call with a problem (worried about the healing of my surgery site) the nurse was VERY responsive. She had me send her a picture and she called back immediately and explained just what was happening and put my mind to rest. I also had 2 additional appointments with the Doctor to check my progress.

Breast Augmentation - All persons involved were extremely kind and professional as well as genuine in wanting to make sure I got the best care and results.

Breast Augmentation - I loved it here and had an amazing experience. My experience and outcome of my procedure, exceeded my expectations! I also loved how Dr. Engel took his time to really understand what i wanted and made sure he heard me right. Everyone was so lovely, I will definitely be recommending Dr. Engel to all my friends and family. My overall outcome is probably the best thing about this experience. I was extremely anxious about the results and what i would look like after, but i feel like Dr. Engel nailed it, and gave me exactly, if not better than what I imagined. My confidence has gone through the roof and I am beyond happy I choose him as my plastic surgeon. More

Amazing Doctor! - I could not be happier with my results! I was someone who was “doing everything right” - clean diet, exercise, tons of nutritional supplements, etc. Still, no matter what I did or how little I ate, I could not lose the weight off my midsection. It was extremely annoying and made me not want to wear a bikini or tight clothes. I was always in loose tops, dresses, etc. From the minute I wal... More

I work with plastic surgeons and physicians around the world and always notice when a facility really stands out. SPSC is just such a place. These guys really have the training that only a handful of doctors in the world receive. These are past presidents of the Florida Society Of Plastic Surgery and the SE Society Of Plastic Surgery. These are doctors with serious credentials and serious training. Almost any doctor can say they're plastic surgeons but when it comes down to it only a select few are true board certified plastic surgeons like these docs. If you're serious about a great and natural result trust the team at SPSC - they're literally the best in town. More

His staff (especially Lisa!) was great-- helping me to feel comfortable and explaining things more than once if I needed, recommending where to get bras and how to be fitted, etc. The operation was completely as described and the recovery was as pleasant as it could be. His whole staff is courteous, kind and thorough. More

Triplet Mom, 1 Year PP, Breast Lift with Implants, and Liposuction - Dr. Engle is simply the best that I’ve seen in natural-looking results. I’ve worked in plastic surgery in the past and it is common for a doc to agree with any procedure the patient wants. Dr. Engle was very open and honest with me about 1) procedures I wanted that he didn’t think I needed and 2) recommending things that he thought would give me the result I wanted. He was right about everything and it was very refreshing to have a doctor like him helping me make such a huge decision. More

28 Years Old, A-Cup and Tired of Padded Bras - Dr. Scott Engel is amazing! As soon as we met, I knew he was the right surgeon for me. Since plastic surgery is still a major surgery, I was very nervous about getting my breasts done. Dr. Engel put all of my nerves at ease while also being very honest about the risks involved. He truly has your best interest at heart which made me really trust him more. During our initial consultation, he was very informative with helpful tips on what to look for when picking a surgeon even if I didn't pick him. Who does that! To me that showed a lot of character and I instantly felt comfortable with him. I reviewed his work of other patients and loved what I saw! A lot of plastic surgeons oversell that "wow factor" by photos of previous patients that they try to sell you a breast fitting that isn't achievable for your body type. Dr. Engel is realistic and will give you his professional opinion but he truly wants you to be happy at the end of the day. So if you don't go with his opinion that's totally fine, but I did go with his professional opinion. The implant size and shape he suggested fit me perfectly! I am so grateful. He made my breasts look incredible! I seriously couldn't have picked a better surgeon. I am so pleased with him that I will be seeing him for future things down the road. So if you are looking for a skilled, knowledgeable, honest surgeon, please see Dr. Engel, you won't regret it! More

His thoughtful recommendations were specific to my needs and my desired outcome. You get personalized care when Dr. Engel is your surgeon!

Breast Implant Revision - I chose Dr. Scott J. Engel to do my breast lift w/implants because of his caring nature and his extreme attention to detail. He describes himself as a perfectionist, and that is exactly what you get....perfection! I previously had Juvederm and Dysport by Dr. Engel and was very happy with his expertise so, naturally, I sought his opinion for the procedures I was interested in. I had researched breast lifts online and consulted with another physician, but I really respected his honesty and knowledge in giving me the very best result. My husband and I were really impressed with his before and after photos and when I tried to explain exactly why I liked his breast results so much he interjected because they're *up*. That was it! His results were very natural but still so perky and beautiful. I had seen so many photos online where I was wondering why the patient even had the procedure done because the after wasn't much better than the before. The scarring on these women were sometimes horrific and such a trade-off that I had almost talked myself out of it completely. My hopes were to just replace my current implants of 19 years with a possibly larger, newer technology implant that would just give me a lift. He said he could do that, but in less than a year, I'd be back wondering why my breasts were still sagging. He said the most pleasing aesthetic result in my situation (old saline implants that had drifted too far outward and stretched skin with sagging) was a traditional breast lift with incisions around the nipple, vertical to the crease and along the crease. I never felt pressured to do the procedure - he even said if nipple sensitivity was of utmost importance to me (which it is) then maybe I need to really think about it longer. I knew there was always a risk, even with just a simple augmentation, of losing some or part of nipple sensitivity. But, I felt I needed this procedure and I knew he would be as conscientious as humanly possible with the nipple. So after quite a bit of soul searching and discussions with my husband, I scheduled my surgery a few months later. Needless to say, I am literally astounded with the wonderful results I got!! I actually went from about a DD to a big C with the Natrelle Inspira round cohesive gel Gummy Bear implants at his suggestion for more projection and more upper pole fullness - and at almost 6 weeks post-op the scars are beautiful....no puckering...no stapling...just beautiful lines that amaze me every time I see them. And the shape is absolutely amazing! My breasts never were this perky and firm my whole life...and yes...they're up. LOL A good portion of nipple sensitivity has returned in my right nipple...the left is lagging a bit but I have a little more sensation every day (more of a pins and needles sensation at this point.) But I realize this can take quite a bit of time, so I'm very, very pleased at this point.I just can't really put into words how happy I am with my results and with Dr. Engel and the entire staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery. He is so kind, so “down to Earth,” realistic and skilled. This kind of surgery, or any plastic surgery for that matter, can change your life dramatically – one way or the other. A bad choice can leave lasting scars – physical and emotional – for your entire life. I am so happy to have met Dr. Engel when I did and chose him as my plastic surgeon. He is absolutely the best in every way! More

Breast Augmentation - I was very scared before the operation, even I wanted to do it, I wasn't sure if it would be worth it. But Dr. Engel was very professional, as well as his staff, and I'm really happy with my new breast. they are perfect! Not too big, not too small, and I'm feeling way better now. I'm glad I did it, and I highly recommend Dr. Engel and his team! The surgical procedure went very well. I woke up, with my clothes on, and the operation was over! More

Breast Implant Revision - Dr. Engle is both very personable and very professional.

So Much More Than a Breast Aug - Most people don't seek plastic surgery just to create a beautiful exterior; they wish to restore their inner confidence. From the first consult, Dr. Engel made my husband and I very comfortable. He answered all of our questions with intelligence and assurance. He listened to what I wanted and help me choose based on my desires and his expertise. Once in surgery, Dr. Engel and his staff took special care in choosing the correct implants to fit my anatomy. He understood my vision and transformed this worn mommy back to a confident woman. The feeling of being a woman and not hiding my chest is one that creates a new type of sexy. Dr. Engel and his staff cannot be compared to other offices. The nurses are exceptional, anesthesia was soothing to my nerves, and his assistant is highly talented. Together, they work in a flawless process, making the patient their top priority. I would recommend Dr. Engel to anyone looking to create their beauty on the surface as well as rejuvenating their self-esteem. More

I performed a bunch of research on potential doctors for my breast fat transfer. Not all plastic surgeons perform this type of procedure, and I wanted to make sure I had a well-trained, caring, and highly rated board certified plastic surgeon. I researched doctors from the Tampa area down to Naples. I was impressed with Dr. Engel's education, training at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, and glowing patient reviews. I could not find one negative review (and believe me, I looked!) I went to a couple consultations and decided on Dr. Engel because he matched my criteria above as well as being smart, patient, and compassionate. Although he looked good on paper, I thoroughly questioned him to make sure he knew his stuff. He was surprised that I cared so much about the details, and he told me not to worry because he's very experienced and has even taught other doctors about fat transfer. Fortunately, he still took the time to answer my long list of questions. He made me feel like he would spend as much time with me as I needed. Even though I'm often nervous at doctor appointments and shy about about being naked, Dr. Engel is considerate and tries to make me feel comfortable. I liked his reassuring words. He is charming, personable, and has a good sense of humor. Before surgery, Dr. Engel generously offered to improve a couple more areas of my body. He truly cared about giving me the best result possible, no matter if it took him more time and effort. I estimate he performed at least $1000 (probably more) of complimentary work for me, considering the extra areas of liposuction and additional time spent. He's similar to me in that he wants to do the best job possible (perfectionist quality that I like). I was actually hesitant at first to agree to the extra work because it was unexpected. But then Dr. Engel said, "I'm just going to make you more pretty." So I said yes. How can I argue with my expert plastic surgeon who wants to go above and beyond, doing complimentary work just to make me "more pretty?" He didn't have to do that, and it's another reason I'm glad I picked Dr. Engel. He must take pride in his work. When he came in before surgery, he was in a really good mood and wanted to make feel at ease. He could tell I was getting extremely nervous, so he held my hands and reassured me he would take care of me. He reiterated that he would treat me as well as if I was his wife (he said that in our consultations too, and he truly seems genuine when he says it). He calmed my nerves, and the surgery indeed went well. My recovery has been much easier than expected too!Something that I liked about the day of surgery is when Dr. Engel said I was one of his most educated patients during pre-op (smart girls rule). He was impressed with how much I researched the procedure. Also, he was understanding that I would have a hard time trusting him. He was extra patient with me, and I'm thankful that he took his time in surgery in order to deliver the best results possible. At our follow-up, he emphasized how much he cared about me when he said that he was thinking about me all weekend, hoping that I was recovering well. During our recent appointments, he has been super attentive to ensure I have a successful recovery.From my research, I also found him to be a family man and one that gives back to his community. I feel secure not only being in the hands of an excellent doctor but also a good person. I'm looking to use Dr. Engel for additional treatments in the future, and I would highly recommend him to others!For a very detailed account of my breast fat transfer experience, check out my realself procedure review.

Dual Plane 295cc Anatomical W/ Donut Lift - Dr. Engel is an artist! He listened to everything I wanted and spent several hours with me making sure we were on the same page. I had interviewed many other PSs all around the US, and no one listened to me the way Dr. Engel did. I am an RN and had done a ton of research on my own, and he was eager to engage with me in all of my neurotic notions :) I cannot thank him and his incredible staff enough. I am in love with my new boobs! - - 35 years old, 5'3" 130lbs. I was looking for a very natural, conservative result. I breastfed 2 children and my breast were sagging and empty. I didn't want the vertical scars of a lollipop lift, and I also wanted my breasts to appear very natural, so the donut lift was my choice. Dr. Engel highly recommended anatomical implants as they also offer a small lift. Ultimately, I left the size up to him with these conditions: as small as possible while also accomplishing the lift needed. I'm so thankful he was able to go with the 295cc because they are the PERFECT size for me. More

Worth Every Penny! I LOVE Them! - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is incredibly skilled and talented. From the very first interaction with him he proved himself to be an excellent physician, an engineer (positioning breast in just the right place especially in my case takes skill), and an artist. He takes his time with you and very thorough in his care each step of the process from consult to post care. I cannot say enough good things about my experience and my results. Thank you Dr. Engel! - - I had a hysterectomy 16 months prior to my BL/BA. After 19 years on birth control pills my breast quickly deflated when I removed the exogenous estrogen of oral contraceptives. They had already begun to change due to age but with major change in hormones and then a resulting weight loss (in part due to the change hormone fluctuations and part due to change in exercise regimen), I was with what was once 34DD/34DDD to a 32C/D. As much as I hate to describe my very own breast this way, they were sad little socks on my chest.Dr. Engel was very thorough with my initial consult. After discussing how my breast had changed most recently bringing me into his office and my wishes we began discussing all the options available. We discussed pros and cons of saline vs. silicone. Then we discussed the different options to lift and the pros/cons. You will see many physicians and eventually even many patients repeating the mantra on Realself, "go for shape, don't worry about scar". I am very glad I learned this mantra and chose my PS by this. I knew going into this I would likely end up with a "lollipop" or "anchor" but more likely the "anchor. He was able to digitally show the difference between the two lifts and I agreed that an anchor would be best due to my desire to have more lift. It is engineering with artistry. I wanted my "big" breast back and at the right level. I booked my surgery the same day as my consult, two and a half weeks later. Dr. Engel has a professional, kind, easy going bedside manner. He said more than once he is a perfectionist. He is. His work is evidence of this and I am fortunate to have it.I could not be more thrilled with the results. I love looking in the mirror now. It is amazing to see my body not only as it was, but better. The scars - I'm only three weeks out and they are so fine and light that I am confident with the recommended scar gel that they will be difficult to distinguish in time. I text my husband at least once a day telling him I love them. Dr. Engel's entire staff from the front office to the nurses were awesome. Very patient with redundant paperwork I needed for my workplace to return to work. And quick to return phone calls and emails. The entire group is fantastic. More

Best Decision and Great Results - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel is incredibly talent and patient-oriented. He explained the procedure in detail, was always ready to answer questions, and prepared me for the surgery and post-op period. He has an eye for aesthetics and will really look at your body type to maximize the overall result. His stitches are so think you can hardly see the scar. I can only highly recommend him - - If you are thinking about a breast reduction surgery, I cannot recommend Dr Engel and his team enough. From the preoperative care and explanations, to the surgery and post-op care - they were incredibly competent, friendly and efficient. It took less than 24 hrs post-op to realise how my life was changed by the operation. The result is stunning - you can hardly see any scars (2 weeks post op). The doctors and medical team are really well trained - which is what you need for an operation like this - the aesthetic result is as close to perfection you can get. Gone is the backpack and I am standing upright all the time. I would recommend making them smaller than you might think initially - I went from a DD to a B cup and it looks perfect More

I am a patient of Dr Scott Engel. I recently underwent a facelift, necklift, upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Safety, the qualifications and skill of the surgeon and subsequent after care were of upmost importance to me, together with a result that was natural and conservative. I did much homework and Dr Engel met all of my goals. My experience was extremely rewarding and met all expectations. Dr Engle and his staff were extremely kind, courteous and professional. From the start, everyone was very informative and gave clear answers to all my questions. All were sensitive to my needs and demonstrated the epitome of what customer service and patient care means. They all, obviously, take pride in what they do and know that having a strong work ethic still matters today. All are an absolute credit to Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center!

50 Years Old, 4 Children and Time to Refresh! - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel is a skillful, kind and professional plastic surgeon. He is also extremely involved with all aspects of recovery. I had done much homework to find Dr. Engel, which totally paid off. I saw him each and everytime I came to the office and he completely addressed all questions and concerns. The OR nurses were knowledgeable and professional which helped with pre surgery nerves. The nurses in the office were also professional, kind and courteous and all demonstrated excellent patient care. I cannot recommend more highly Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Dr Engel and all his staff obviously take much pride in all they do and demonstrate the epitome of what customer service and patient care means. They are all an absolute credit to all they do! Great job! - - Dr Engel performed a facelift, neck lift, upper & lower eye blepharoplasty. As a nurse, my number one priority was safety followed by the qualifications & skill of the surgeon. My other priority was a natural appearing result. Dr Engel met all of my very high expectations which led to great rewards. More

Can't imagine having it done with anyone else, his bed side manners, his sense of humor, his personality, his caring and compassionate ability to put himself in the patience place is just remarkable. He made everything from start to finish worth it, i would not ever, ever go to anyone else, he truly is the best. My results are just fantastic, I'm so so happy I did it...only question I keep asking myself is why didn't I do it sooner? and where has this doctor been all my life. What a great, great doctor.

34 Year Old Mother of 2 Needing Breast Implants - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Scott Engel was my surgeon. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Engel took his time explaining everything, all my options, and addressed all my questions. Dr. Engel made me feel completely comfortable and that I was in great hands. The results have been life changing. I feel like the woman I once was before having children. I would highly recommend Dr. Engel to all my friends interested in plastic surgery as well as return for future needs. - - My motivation to enhance my breasts was the state they were in after having my two children. They felt deflated and as if there was no breast tissue left. I was ready to feel like my old self again. This was a procedure I have been planning since my early 20's, I was just waiting until I was finished having children to move forward with it. More

36 Year Old Fitness Enthusiast Who Wanted to Feel and Look More Womanly :) - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel is very thorough, knowledgeable, experienced, and personable. He answered every single question with honesty never making me feel pressure to use his services. He is a very genuine person who cares about my overall well-being. He takes an interest in my personal goals and desires. From the moment I met Dr Engel I trusted him. He even called me personally before my surgery to review the procedure, and answer any of my questions, etc. It is obvious that he takes his job very seriously and is very meticulous. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Engel for anyone who may be considering breast augmentation. More

3 Kids, Twins - Sarasota, FL - He was an amazing surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone interested in a tummy tuck and/or breast lift and augmentation. - - I had lost all of the baby weight but still had extra skin and lots of stretch marks. After going to three other board-certified doctors, I chose Dr. Scott Engle. My choice was based on how comfortable he made me feel about the procedure and how much time he spent during my consultations. He was not the least expensive doctor; however, I felt it was money well spent to know I was in good hands. I have two other girlfriends that have gone to him as well and both love their results too!

35 Yr Old, Single Mom with Amazing Tummy Tuck Results. Thank You Dr. Engel! - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is knowledgeable, thorough, professional yet very personable, great bedside manner and a true artist. He definitely has a gift! He is supported by a great staff and I will continue to highly recommend him and Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. I look forward to my next procedure with him, a lift and breast augmentation, in the future. I will without a doubt go into it with complete confidence. Thank you for my beautiful new belly! - - I want to give a big THANK YOU to Dr. Engel and all his staff at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. I am a 35 yr old single mom with a now 13yr old son. At 22, when I was pregnant with my son, I gained 40 lbs and weighed in at a total of 204 lbs by the end of my pregnancy. Needless to say, I ended up with severe stretch marks and loose skin. After having my son I've worked very hard over the years to get and stay in shape. Yet was never able to tighten the flabby, loose, unwanted, unsightly skin on my abdomen despite all my efforts and healthy diet. I am 5'8 and pre surgery I have maintained an avg. of 130lbs for several years. However I was still extremely self conscious of my stomach wearing clothes or not. I live in one of the most beautiful beach communities and for the past 13 years I would avoid any activity that required being in a bathing suit like the plague. Its has been extremely emotionally taxing for the last 13 years. Finally at 35 I was tired of not being able to enjoy the beauty around me. I made the decision I deserved to feel good. I was familiar with Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center because I have been seeing Bridget Forgette (who is amazing by the way), their PA for my sclerotherapy and Botox for several years. In my thorough research Dr. Engel came highly recommended and from word of mouth is well know in the area for all areas of his work especially abdominoplasty aka Tummy tucks. Even though I knew I really wanted to have this procedure, naturally there was still a great amount of fear with me being a single mom. I questioned, was this out of vanity? Was this a selfish thing to do for myself financially? I was concerned about going under general anesthesia, the recovery, how long I was going to be out of work, etc. After my initial consultation with Dr. Engel I was completely comforted and confident I was in good hands and he was the surgeon for me. I scheduled my sugery for July 13th, 2015, the same day of my consultation. Its been almost 2 mos since my surgery and Dr. Engel's work has far exceeded my expectations. I am so pleased with my results! its been a smooth recovery and everything is healing beautifully. I am obsessed with my beautiful new belly button!! Yesterday, Sept. 6, 2015 was my first visit to the beach, in a bikini and I was, for the first time in 13 years, confident enough to have my picture taken and take my cover up off standing up. It seriously brought tears to my eyes to feel this good in my own skin again. This was all made possible by Dr. Engel, his expertise and staff. I also want to thank his nurses, especially Lisa, for answering any questions and concerns I had leading up to the surgery and post op. I had a lot of questions and they were always patient and comforting with me. My phone calls, if not taken immediately, were returned in a timely manner. This also built my confidence in my decision that I was with the right doctor and practice. Today I feel like a new person, I have a new sense of self and my body back. The recovery had its tough moments but I would do this surgery ten times over. This was one of the best things I have ever done for and myself. Dr. Engel made my dream a reality... I can't say thank you enough!Please see for yourself below my before and after... the after photo was taken approx 6 weeks post op.Tracie J. More

Feeling Younger Every Day - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel was personable, caring and very concerned about how I feel. He was able to assure me that although I looked like I had been hit by a truck the day of surgery that it would be all ok. He was right, I am very pleased with the results and would recommend him to anyone who wants realistic results. - - Immediately after surgery people noticed a significant change in my appearance. My friends and I continue to admire the work that Dr. Engle performed for me, his attention to detail is second to none. His commitment to his patients is that you will not look far better but not different. I cannot say enough about his ability to make me comfortable and truly believe that he cares about me and my results. More

42 Yrs Old - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel is awesome. My primary visit was for breast aug and breast lift but also decided to get Botox and Juviderm. He took his time and went over everything in detail. Wonderful down to earth Dr. Highly recommended. - - I was really excited to fill in my lines around my chin. I had been thinking about this as the last few years gravity as gotten the best of me. I ended up doing Juviderm and Botox. So far I'm really happy with the Botox and the Juviderm is working its wonders. The Dr said it would take a full week to do its thing and so far it's looking really good. I will hopefully be able to edit and post pics in a week. I want everyone to see the full results. Stay tuned. Defiantly worth the money from what I can see so far. More

25yrs, 1 Child, Correcting Asymmetry and Adding Size W/ Saline Unders - Sarasota, FL - What a great doctor with a great sense of humor! He answered most of my questions before i could even ask! He is a perfectionist and will treat you with the respect of one of his own family members! I truly couldnt be happier with my doctor choice! - - This is something I've wanted to do for a long time, ever since i was a girl I have been wearing extra padded bras and just waiting for the boob fairy to come bless me, alas she blessed the left side with a nice C cup but the right side was an under developed B. after my daughter the difference became more noticeable, i breast fed for 11 months and my right breast barely produced anything, which only served to make my asymmetry even worse. Since I don't plan on anymore children I took the plunge! I have had a wonderful support system and My doctor Scott Engel was absolutely perfect! Engel was professional but funny and extremely helpful and honest about the results we could expect, he recommended a lift on my bigger side, but i really didn't want that, he said he could still achieve a great result either way so we went with 485cc on the right and 340cc on the left (big difference!!!) and during the procedure he said my right side was quite a challenge because my muscle and tissue was strangely developed, so he ended up putting a high profile in my left side and a medium profile in the other so he could achieve the most symmetry, he had even tried the other implant and wasn't satisfied with the way it looked. I feel like i couldn't have been in better hands, he listened to my wants and made my dreams come true!!! I'm only 4 days post op but i already looooove them!!!!! The OR is in the sarasota plastic surgery center building so it's a one stop shop! haha but the facilities are immaculate! More

45 Year Old Needing a Little TLC - Sarasota, FL - I loved my doctor. He was so kind and personal. He listen to what I wanted to accomplish. And then he gave his professional opinion and walked me through what would happen. I felt secure in his hands. I think my biggest worry was pain. He made sure that I was comfortable. I just had my yearly GYN appointment and my doctor was impressed with my scars. She asked for his name. She even said that I had a really cute belly button. Dr Engel is truly amazing at what he does. I am impressed with my body and so so happy I did it. I am so grateful for his staff as well. They were just a phone call away before and after the surgery with answers to anything that was of a concern to me. The nurses are so sweet and kind. Every person that I met at Dr Engels office really loves what they do because of how they all worked as a team for my benefit. I could go on and on but I wont. I loved my experience and I love my new body!!!!!!! - - I just wanted a flat stomach. After three kids my stomach sat in my lap. I wanted so bad to look good again. Pros are you feel better about yourself number one, and you get to buy new clothes because everything is to big now. The only con would be just laying low for a few weeks. Had to hire a little help.

34 Years Old with 55 Year Old Breasts, No Kids. No Fair! Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel was amazing! He's known for his perfectionism and professionalism and l can attest to both.He was patient and listened to what l wanted and recommended the best options for the best outcome. I am so pleased with the whole process! Dr. Engel and his staff put me at ease and everything was well explained and thorough. Follow-up procedures and post op care were amazing. My whole journey began long distance and I never thought it'd have been so easy. They made this happen for me. I can't say it enough. Go see Dr. Engel! - - I've always thought there was something wrong with my breasts. Even when they developed they had an odd shape; kinda saggy, triangular shape with large nipple pointing at the floor. Nothing like ld seen on TV or coveted as a tween! And then l did a natural bodybuilding show when l was 19 and they just never recovered and looked worse. I started taking out my contacts before l'd take off my clothes so l wouldn't have to see them. It's been that way to this day and l decided for my 35th birthday next month l'd treat myself to a new set of BOOBS. Not breasts. Boobs! Haha! It's not fair that l'm 34 with no kids and single and my breasts look 55 and about to retire! I've wanted this for so long and was surprised at all the support. My mom had breast cancer several years ago and had begun to look into reconstructive surgery. She ended up not doing it but found an awesome doctor in the process. So l flew from Anchorage, AK to Sarasota, FL to see Dr. Scott Engel. Soooo glad l did. I'll post my before pics and then show my progress since lve already had the surgery. Sorry l didn't post sooner. I was nervous but this site proved invaluable to me through all this and l must share back! I'm 5'4" and about 140, pretty muscular build. Before l was a saggy 36 B/C. Wanted D-DD perky boobs to balance my frame and give me a super feminine body party since l feel a little masculine. I went with round, HP silicone 425cc in both breast. The Dr. found my breasts were slightly tubular? (explains weird shape) and severe ptosis (so sad). Here's my journey to date! I'm so glad l did this! More

Surgery is daunting but with Dr. Engel as your PS you do not need to worry! He was very personable and knowledgeable, kept things light and fun, and gives great unbiased advice. His main goal is giving you what you want so he listens, processes and recommends what will best achieve that goal. And l have to say he is AMAZING at his job. I had a BA/BL. He's a perfectionist and it shows! Stitches are under the skin, everything is wonderfully even and balanced and I'm so glad he convinced me not to go bigger. I couldn't be happier with the whole process and outcome. Highly recommend Dr. Engel! More

43-year Old with "Pooch" That I Couldn't Get Rid Of!!! Sarasota, FL - Dr. Scott Engel is incredible. I've has consultations by other plastic surgeons in the past and no one took the time to explain the entire procedure like he did. Whether deciding on the size of implants to weighing the pros/cons of a mini vs. full tummy tuck, I felt secure Dr. Engel was fully aware of what I wanted. Not only did he take the time in my consult and pre-op appointment but the surgery day he was caring and reassuring. I wasn't nervous which had everything to do with my understanding of the surgery and his expertise. Plastic surgery is a private matter except I feel compelled to tell anyone who is considering to go see Dr. Engel because I feel so strongly that he is the type of doctor who makes all the difference (results and relationship)!!!! - - I finally have my body back!!! My breast lift with implants makes me feel beautiful again. I just left my follow-up with Dr. Engel and told him that I wish I would have done the surgery sooner because I LOVE the results. Not only is he amazing with his surgical skills but my results far exceed my expectations. More

37 Year Old/Life Changing Surgery - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel was very thorough in the eduction of my elected procedures, as was his staff. I believe and felt that Dr. Engel truly understood my concerns and desired results. During my consultation, I felt very comfortable and was able to relax knowing that I had chosen the best board certified plastic surgeon to address my concerns and meet my cosmetic desires. The day of surgery my nerves quickly went into overload once I enter the facility. Then I was greeted by the wonderful surgical staff followed by Dr. Engel. I was finally ready to undergo surgery thanks to Dr. Engel's ability to ease my worries and make me laugh. I remember Dr. Engel speaking to me prior to my discharge, which I believe put my "after surgery" nerves at ease. The following day I met with Dr. Engel and his staff. At this appointment, I was again reassured that I had made the appropriate surgical and surgeon decisions. Again, THANK YOU Dr. Engel!! - - I have always been up and down with my weight most of my teenage/adult life. I gained the majority of my weight through difficult pregnancies. With one successful pregnancy, I gave birth to my beautiful daughter (17 years ago). Through the years she became an avid runner and I had the desire to be able to run 5k's/marathon's with her. Over the past five years that desire lead me to dropping 50+ pounds. I was very happy and excited by the weight loss. However, I was left with excess skin, mostly in my abdominal area, which left me feeling very depressed and not so excited to run or workout. I decided to seek consultation for a tummy tuck, breast reduction/lift and liposuction. After much research, I decided to consult with Dr. Engel. As the appointment neared, I became very nervous and wasn't so sure I would keep the appointment. Well, the day came and I kept the appointment. After a very thorough consultation and exam with Dr. Engel and his staff, I was more than excited to follow through with surgery. Three weeks later I underwent surgery for a tummy tuck, breast reduction/lift with fat grafting (to achieve breast fullness, I opted not to have implants) and liposuction of thighs/abdomen. The day after surgery, I was immediately satisfied and knew that I had made the right decision with the right surgeon. I am now 8 weeks postoperative and couldn't be enjoying my renewed life more. This surgery has given me back apart of myself that I thought I had lost forever....the ability to look in the mirror and smile, not cry! I am now in the process of training to run my first 5k with my daughter this October! Thank you Dr. Engel!!! More

Going into the appointment I was very scared and nervous, but after spending two hours with Dr. Engel answering all my questions and going over everything about the surgery, I left excited and confident. The surgery and the recovery couldn't have gone any better. You can truly tell he cares about his patients. Due to his impeccable work, I was back to work in three days.

Dr. Engel was very welcoming and made me feel comfortable through out each and every visit. He is very funny. He educated me on the different types of implants, sizes and profiles. He was able to answer every question I had before I even asked it. If you're thinking about getting a BA, I RECOMMEND HIM!!!! No questions asked. I will go back to Dr. Engel every time for any and all other BA surgeries needed. He gave me a natural look that I didn't think I was going to like at first because I thought they would be too small (but after the drop & fluff...which is still happening) they look more full on the bottom so I understand why he recommended I not go any bigger...My goal was to proportion my body because I am a little more bottom heavy. So I thought big big big to even it out, but he exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier with my results. I have so much more confidence because of him. Thank you SO much Dr. Engel. More

I will go back to Dr. Engel every time for any and all other BA surgeries needed. He gave me a natural look that I didn't think I was going to like at first because I thought they would be too small (but after the drop & fluff...which is still happening) they look more full on the bottom so I understand why he recommended I not go any bigger...My goal was to proportion my body because I am a little more bottom heavy. So I thought big big big to even it out, but he exceeded my expectations and I could not be happier with my results. I have so much more confidence because of him. Thank you SO much Dr. Engel. More

Capsular Contraction Treatment with Implant Removal and Exchange - Bradenton, FL - Dr Scott and his office were very knowledgable, friendly and professional. I was very pleased with my short healing time and the success of the procedure. I would definitely trust Dr. Scott with any of my plastic surgery needs! - - About 3 years after my initial implant surgery (by a different surgeon), I noticed that my right breast was becoming firm and you could see the implant margins. Upon noticing the problem I went to Dr Scott for a consultation. He was very compassionate and gave me a few different treatment options. He followed up with me regularly until I was certain that an complete capsuleotomy with implant removal and exchange was right for me. Surgery scheduling was fast and easy. More

Thanks to Dr. Scott J. Engel, January is the month of my rebirth as well as my birth. During my routine mammogram last year I was told my left silicone breast implant had ruptured . The diagnosis was confirmed by an MRI. I contacted several board certified plastic surgeons in the Sarasota area. I decided on Dr. Engel due to his expertise in replacing breast implants and his reputation as a perfectionist. It was one of the very best decisions of my life. During my surgery Dr. Engel discovered my left implant was in pieces and my right implant also had ruptured. Fortunately there was no extracapsular silicone in either breast. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Engel for the outstanding results he achieved, which greatly exceeded by expectations. Now I am a 55-year-old woman with the breasts of a 30-year-old woman. My breasts are beautiful, in perfect proportion to my nipples, and already look and feel totally natural. I am especially impressed by Dr. Engel?s accuracy and artistry in giving me breasts inspired by Marilyn Monroe, per the photos we reviewed prior to my surgery. Dr. Engel also is exceptionally caring, compassionate and conscientious. He performed my surgery on New Year?s Eve and personally conducted my first post-op exam on New Year?s Day. The staff of the the Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center also was very helpful. I am honored to provide my very highest recommendation for Dr. Engel and the Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. More

From start to finish Dr. Engel has been amazing! I had a breast augmentation about 2 months ago and I could not be any happier with my results. I have always had small breasts and was very self conscious about it. Dr. Engel really listened to what I wanted and made the suggestions to give me the best results. As a patient and an employee of Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center I've come to see how wonderful Dr. Engel is with his patients. He is so kind, patient and caring, which is important to me when choosing a surgeon. I would not hesitate to have any other procedure with Dr. Engel or refer my close friends and family to him. I can't thank Dr. Engel enough for my amazing results! More

Older Woman, 57, with Severe Sagging Thigh Skin with Fatty Nodules. - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is very intelligent and knowledgeable. His bedside manner is only surpassed by his outstanding skill in the surgery suite. He is dedicated to his patients and takes all the time necessary to do things so they meet his high quality standards. I was very pleased with my entire experience. Dr. Engel is very warm, caring and trustworthy...with a sense of humor. I hold him in high regard and do recommend his practice without hesitation. - - I had very, very ugly and unsightly thighs. There were visible lumps of fatty tissue with drapes of loose skin. I am not overweight but I could only wear pants or a long dress or skirt. Without surgery my life would continue to be less than fully lived. I have researched the thigh lift and understand it is the most difficult procedure for both patient and surgeon. It is imperative you decide on a board certified specialist for this procedure or risk some very sad and disappointing results.My surgeon, Dr. Scott Engel MD, is, in my humble opinion, the very best in his field. My legs are beautiful! You cannot imagine my delight going from practically deformed to looking 10 years younger with very tight, shapely legs. Without a doubt you need to consult with Dr. Engel in Sarasota FL before deciding on your surgery specialist. You will be very pleased indeed! More

25 Years Old - Sarasota, FL - Dr. Engel is a great doctor who I highly recommend. He spoke with me in debth about the procedure and made me feel comfortable the whole way through. He even made my mother feel comfortable because she did not agree with my decision. He has been amazing before and after my surgery. I can honestly say he cares about the well-being of his patients. There are many reasons why he is a great doctor but the main one is that my breasts look great! - - I have weighed the pros and cons of getting a breast augmentation for many years. For some reason this year was the year. I am young and wanted to look my best. I have always been concerned with this area of my body and needed to feel better about myself. Especially moving to Florida where you are always in a bikini. When I walked into the office I was extremely scared, but the staff here made me feel very comfortable. More

Tummy Tuck and Lipo After 100 Pound Weight Loss - Sarasota, FL - Choosing Dr. Engel to perform my procedure was the best decision I could have made. He took a full hour with me during my consult to answer all my questions and set realistic expectations. I liked that he said he treats his patients the same way he would want his own wife treated if she was on the table. That really won my husband over! Everyone at the center are wonderful, my care was top notch before, during, and after surgery. My end results are absolutely incredible. More than I could have ever hoped for! I will be seeing Dr. Engel again to do my breast augmentation in a few months. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do it! - - After losing 105 pounds I had a lot of extra skin on my tummy and fat on my sides that wouldn't budge! I had two consults with Dr. Engel and spoke about allmy areas of concern. We mapped out a few procedures I will do over 2-3 surgeries. His honesty and opinion on how to split up the procedures was very helpfulto me. I have a young baby so need to splitup the surgeries so I can recover more quickly from each one and go back to being a mommy ASAP. More

He made me feel incredibly comfortable with the procedure and his plan. He is a truely gifted surgeon. His staff is second to none, and hold him in very high regard. Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center is a first class facility. I recommend him to anyone looking into having cosmetic surgery. I will be sending all my friends and family to him. Thank you Dr. Engel for improving the look of my nose!! - - I am a 67 year old man who never liked the appearance of my nose. Most of my life I spent taking care of my family and working and never spent money on myself. I finally got the time and courage to find out information about a nose job with Dr. Engel. He was a great doctor and gave me all the information I needed to decide to go forward with it. I am thrilled with the results. It was much easier than I expected. Dr. Engel is a tremendous surgeon.

371CC Silicone Unders - Looking to get back what I had and They are Back!!! - Sarasota, FL - I met with 3 differant PS's and Dr. Engel took the most time to explain the procedure and honestly tell me what my results would be. Also took measurements and went over differant profiles etc. He didn't rush me out of the office like one of the PS's I saw did. He made me feel like I could spend as much time as needed to talk with him.After having my pre op with Dr Engel I am even more confident I chose well. He is easy to talk to and really takes the time to explain realistically what the outcome will be and my differant options.After just about 3 weeks I am so pleased with the results! I had issues with my left breast being larger and lower and he explained how he tried different techniques and sizes during the surgery to get them just right. I was really impressed that he took the extra time and attention to get results that I'd be happy with. The post op appointments went great so far, he has a great sense of humor and really makes you feel comfortable while answering all your questions and not making you feel rushed out of his office. In addition to that they have a wonderful nurses staff! - - I have been reading reviews on this website for a few weeks now and as my BA date gets closer I decided to write my story, it's seems like a nice way to keep a journal and get support and helpful information from others who have had BA's. Here is a little about me and why I have made the decision to get a BA. Like most women on here I am looking to get back what I used to have before kids (I have one son age 12) and age took a toll on my body and to feel better about myself. Alot of things beyond my control have made me feel very uncomfortable with my body and as a woman. I had a very difficult delivery and was told after my sons birth that I should not have any more children which devistated me. Due to a surgery I had immediately after my sons birth I developed a ventral hernia that became incarcerated and had to have another emergency surgery that left terrible scars on my stomach and damaged muscle I also have a little loose skin under my belly button area. Since then I have never been able to wear a bikini and I make sure I wear shirts long enough that there is no chance of anyone seeing my scars. I looked into getting a small tummy tuck to repair that damage and was told I could not because of the type of repair I had for my ventral hernia - another devastation :( Two years ago I had to have a hysterectomy..not that I was going to have more children but I guess all the things added up to me feeling like less of a woman. Now, as happens with time, I have gone from a very full C cup to a very deflated barely B cup. Despite all that I am always a very upbeat, cheerful and life loving person. So I made the decision to get my boobs back :) I am a single mother but have been dating a wonderful man for 3 years. He was surprised at my decision at first but totally supportive because he realizes it is something that will make me feel good about myself. I am scheduled for surgery on Nov. 26th and have so far decided on under the muscle, silicone moderate plus profile but not sure on cc's yet. My pre op is this week so I am ready to show my PS my wish boob pics and see what he thinks. Also want to note that I am very active in running, I do alot of 5K, 10K races am training for my first half marathon in the early part of 2014 so I don't want to go huge just get the fullness back in the upper area (without affecting my race times).My Stats:Age: 43Weight: 115Height: 5'2"Cup Size: sad looking BBA info:SiliconeUnder the muscleModerate Plus profileprobably 350cc's More

Best Decision Ever! - Sarasota, FL - Dr Scott Engel is an amazing, competent and caring surgeon. I met with various surgeons before making my final decision. As soon as I met Dr. Engel, I knew he was the right doctor for me. He has a wealth of knowledge and information. He was patient and willing to answer and address my large list of questions and concerns. He is very professional and always has a nurse in the room at all times. His bedside manner was wonderful. When I contacted him with a question after the procedure, he was extremely quick to respond. The office staff is amazing and such a pleasure to deal with. I have recommended him to many. In fact, I feel so comfortable and confident in his artistry that I am planning to use him for my daughter's rhinoplasty in the near future. - - I am a 45 year old very active mother of three. I was able to keep my body in great shape with cardio, weight training, pilates and yoga, but despite all of the chest presses, flys and push ups, could not do much to help the sagging breasts. I was tired of uncomfortable push-up bras and the pain in my neck in the summer from tying my bikini straps so tight. I was initially just planning to do a breast lift, but after traveling to Florida and speaking with my surgeon, Dr. Scott Engel, we decided that the implants would give me the look that I wanted. The procedure went very well. Recovery was easier than I anticipated. I was a little sore and uncomfortable the first 2 days, but by day 3 I was at the pool in a cover up. I was not ready for a bikini top yet because I was still bandaged. The results were absolutely amazing! I did not want to be too big....I went from a 34B to a 36C. My breasts are very natural looking and fit my body. Not fake looking at all!! A year and a half later, they still look amazing. In fact, when I saw my doctor in my hometown for my annual exam and mammogram, she was amazed at how fabulous I looked and wanted the name of my surgeon. I would absolutely recommend the procedure and Dr. Scott Engel. More

Mommy's New Boobies! - Sarasota, FL - Dr Engel is absolutely amazing! From the consultation to post op, he calmed my nerves, answered all questions and asked me what I wanted and what my concerns are. I felt that my wants and desires were the most important to him. I trusted Dr Engel with my breast lift and augmentation and I was not disappointed at all. He is truly an artist! I am beyond happy with my results and already have friends who want to have Dr Engel do their surgeries. Amazing work! - - Hello all! A little about me....I'm a 34 year old mother of 2 beautiful babies, ages 5 and 4. I am 5'1", ~114lbs and currently in a 32B/34A bra. I don't fill them out at all but when I go to a smaller cup my saggy gross skin seeps over the tops of the bras. I breast-fed both of my kids and my boobs ballooned! I believe I was in a 34DD/36D when I was pregnant/breast feeding. As a result of breast feeding my once perky, rarely had to wear a bra boobies have turned into saggy, jelly-feeling nastiness. I have been talking about getting a BL pretty much since my daughter (my youngest) was a year old and now that she is turning 4, I finally decided to take the plunge. I don't have enough courage to post pics yet but I will. I know they are so helpful for everyone as well as myself. My original thought was just a BL but after consult, Dr showed me what I would have left after a lift and it is pretty dreadful. I know that I need help in the fullness area for sure! My pre-op appointment is this Thursday, 10/10, with my surgery on Wednesday, 10/23. I am so excited and anxious as well as extremely nervous. My goal is to be a full B, small C but everything I'm hearing/reading is to go a little bigger. I am pretty small and don't want it to be obvious that I've had a BA. I am a mom and just want natural-looking breasts that fit my body. Hopefully the fitting will help. PS said at consult that he thinks 300 or 325 might do the trick. We shall see! More

After a very questionable experience at Faces on Main, I decided that a cosmetic surgeon was the only person I was going to be able to trust. I recently started getting Botox done and found many good reviews for Dr. Scott Engel at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. Dr. Engel was super. Interestingly enough, he wanted to discuss the date of my last mammogram, as a surgeon who does breast reconstruction following cancer it certainly makes sense. He gave me to understand that I would need to get a mammogram before I was to get more Botox - I believe I was being told that if I could find funds for Botox then I could certainly find the $35 for a mammogram. He didn't tell me where to go or who to see, just the direction that it needed to be done before our next meeting. I find this incredibly impressive. We then went on to discuss my Botox and what non-surgical procedures I may be interested in over the coming years. I told him I was looking for one doctor who understood what I wanted and what I didn't, and who would help guide me through that; a doctor with whom I could develop a trusting relationship. I do believe I've found him. He did my crow's feet and glabellar lines and did an amazing job. It took over four months to start wearing off. The shots - well, most of them - I didn't even feel. No slight swelling and I was even able to go out that evening without worrying about bruising or swelling. This place gets a five star rating from me. I hope Dr. Engel and I have a long, sensible relationship punctuated by timely mammograms. More

I performed a bunch of research on possible doctors for my breast fat transfer. Not all plastic surgeons perform this procedure, and I wanted to make sure I had a well-trained, caring, and highly rated board certified plastic surgeon. I researched doctors from the Tampa area to Bradenton/Sarasota down to the Fort Myers and Naples area. I was impressed with Dr. Engel's education, training at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, and glowing patient reviews. I could not find one negative review (and believe me, I looked!) I concluded that he was either an exceptional doctor or just good at covering his tracks. I'm pleased to report that Dr. Engel is in fact an excellent doctor!I went to a couple consultations and decided on Dr. Engel because he matched my criteria above as well as being patient, smart, and compassionate. Although he looked good on paper, I thoroughly questioned him to make sure he knew his stuff. He was surprised that I cared so much about the details and told me not to worry because he’s very experienced and has even taught other doctors about fat transfer. Fortunately, he still took the time to answer my long list of questions (and he answered them right!) He made me feel like he would spend as much time with me as I needed.Even though I'm often nervous at doctor appointments and shy about about being naked, Dr. Engel is very considerate and tries to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. I liked his compliments and reassuring words. He is charming, has a good sense of humor and overall great personality.When he came in before surgery, he was in a really good mood and wanted to make me feel safe and comfortable. He could tell I was getting extremely nervous, so he held my hands and reassured me he would take care of me. He reiterated that he would treat me as well as if I was his wife (he said that in our consultations too, and he truly seems genuine when he says it). He calmed my nerves, and the surgery indeed went well. My recovery has been much easier than expected too!Before surgery, Dr. Engel generously offered to improve a couple more areas of my body (free of charge!) He truly cared about giving me the best result possible, no matter if it took him more time and effort. I estimate he performed at least $1000 (probably much more) of complimentary work for me, considering the extra areas of liposuction and additional time spent. He's similar to me in that he wants to do the best job that he can do with whatever he does (perfectionist quality that I like).Also, he was understanding that I would have a hard time trusting him. He was extra patient with me, and I'm thankful that he took his time in surgery in order to deliver the best results possible. He worked an extra 45 minutes on top of our scheduled 3 hour surgery.At our follow-up, he emphasized how much he cared about me as a patient when he said that he was thinking about me all weekend, hoping that I was recovering well. During our recent appointments, he has been super involved and attentive to ensure I have a successful recovery. Overall it is nice that he just wants me to look as best as I possibly can.From my research, I also found him to be a family man and one that gives back to his community. I feel secure not only being in the hands of an excellent doctor but also a good person. I'm looking to use Dr. Engel for beauty treatments in the future, and I would highly recommend him to others!

30s Mom Hoping for Thinner Thighs and Bigger Boobs! - I performed a bunch of research on potential doctors for my breast fat transfer. Not all plastic surgeons perform this type of procedure, and I wanted to make sure I had a well-trained, caring, and highly rated board certified plastic surgeon. I researched doctors from the Tampa area down to Naples. I was impressed with Dr. Engel's education, training at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, and glowing patient reviews.

Fortunately, he still took the time to answer my long list of questions. Dr. Engel made me feel like he would spend as much time with me as I needed. I'm often nervous at doctor appointments and shy about about being naked, but thankfully Dr. Engel is considerate and makes me feel comfortable. I liked his reassuring words. He is charming, personable, and has a good sense of humor. Before surgery, Dr. Engel generously offered to improve a couple more areas of my body. He truly cared about giving me the best result possible, no matter if it took him more time and effort. I estimate he performed at least $1000 (probably more) of complimentary work for me. He's similar to me in that he wants to do the best job possible (perfectionist quality that I like). I was actually hesitant at first to agree to the extra work because it was unexpected. But then Dr. Engel said, "I'm just going to make you more pretty." So I said yes. How can I argue with my expert plastic surgeon who wants to go above and beyond, doing bonus work just to make me "more pretty?" He must take pride in his work. When Dr. Engel came in before surgery, he was in a really good mood and wanted to make feel at ease. He could tell I was getting extremely nervous, so he held my hands and reassured me he would take care of me. He reiterated that he would treat me as well as if I was his wife (he said that in our consultations too, and he truly seems genuine when he says it). He calmed my nerves, and the surgery indeed went well. My recovery has been much easier than expected too! Something that I liked about the day of surgery is when Dr. Engel said I was one of his most educated patients during pre-op (smart girls rule). At our follow-up, he emphasized how much he cared about me when he said that he was thinking about me all weekend, hoping that I was recovering well. I ended up rating this procedure as "worth it" because I think I got what I paid for... but in hindsight, there was a mistake of not having additional fat harvested. I liked my body improvements overall, but there wasn’t enough fat from just my stomach and thighs to be able to go up a full cup and reach my goal. I believe I should have been advised to have lipo on more areas. Also, I am bothered by some unevenness from liposuction, however, I was informed it can be a side effect. In spite of that, I have been satisfied by Dr. Engel overall and plan to see him for additional treatments in the future. From my research, I found Dr. Engel to be a family man and one that gives back to his community. I feel secure not only being in the hands of an excellent doctor but also a good person.

I chose Dr. Engel for a previous procedure because he's an excellent board certified plastic surgeon, and then I found he is also an experienced injector. I consulted Dr. Engel about my forehead wrinkles, and he said that Botox would be a good treatment. I asked him about anti-aging treatments for my whole face as well, and he didn't recommend anything else like fillers or lasers. He said I was still young and naturally beautiful, which was pleasing. He could have made lots more money off me, but instead Dr. Engel seems honest and honorable. I feel like I can trust him to put my interests first. I like that he is conservative with these treatments, and I think we have the same goal of a natural, beautiful result. From my experience, Dr. Engel is exceptionally smart, patient, and caring.

In my 40's, Athletic. 1 Child and Ready to Get my Breasts. Sarasota, FL - I wasn't going to post, but it's midnight before surgery and here I go. I have had 3 consults and felt comfortable with dr Engel. Ready to get my breast aug finally. I had a child, breast fed 13 months and the breasts show it. The implants picked were 340cc silicone unders. I vacillated between overs with gummy bear implant, but chose unders after weighing pros and cons. Fearful of capsular contraction, higher rate of rupture and gummy bears possibly rotating. The con of having a " snoopy" deformity dr says is 20%. That is having an abnormal contour on the lower part of my breast when naked. Ok I will post some shots after my surgery. Wish me luck! I hope t not too big. More
