5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

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!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Very Happy With My Results! - Sarasota, FL

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.

5 out of 5 stars Ear Lobe Surgery

Excellent Plastic Surgeon, Very Caring and Very Professional - Sarasota, FL Excellent plastic surgeon, very caring and very professional. He was very concerned about my wife's pain level and kept making sure she was not in pain. Also he was very cautious about doing the proceedure making sure she would not have any other complications as she has other underlying medical conditions. Excellent doctor!

5 out of 5 stars Thigh Lift

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.

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.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift

Wish I Would Have Done It Sooner!! - Sarasota, FL

I had contemplated for a few years whether or not to get the lift and reduction. After having the procedure, I am so pleased and wished I hadn't waited so long. Dr. Scott Engel was amazing!! I never thought after nursing two children my boobies would ever look the way they did when I was in my twenties. I was wrong. Dr. Engel is so talented and I really feel as though my boobies are back!! His...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

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!
