5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

Mommy's New Boobies! - Sarasota, FL

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...

42 Year Old with Wrinkles on Lower Eyelids - Sarasota, FL

I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Scott Engel and his staff. He is a very compassionate person. He listened to my concerns and then made his recommendations. He suggested I have a Lower Blepharoplasty with Fat Injections to the hollow areas in the lower eyelid region. I proceeded with the procedures and I am extremely happy. My eyes look wonderful. My whole face has a more...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Capsular Contraction Treatment with Implant Removal and Exchange - Bradenton, FL

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...

Very Happy With My Results! - Sarasota, FL

I absolutely would recommend Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center TO EVERYONE who is thinking about getting a BA. They have the friendliest team and are so welcoming! They answered all of my questions and even gave me a lot more information to prepare me for what was to come with my surgery pre and post op. I CAN NOT believe how much change has happened since my 3 month post op visit with Dr....

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

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...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

25 Years Old - Sarasota, FL

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...

Dr. Scott Engel Fixed my Nose!! He is Fantastic!! -Sarasota, FL

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...

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...

371CC Silicone Unders - Looking to get back what I had and They are Back!!! - Sarasota, FL

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...
