Mommy Makeover

Dr. Engel was very polite thorough and told me exactly what he would do and what he suggested. I do wish I had been shown before and after pictures. I have scheduled my surgery for April 10th.

Laser Resurfacing

Dr. Engel and Sarasota Plastic Surgery are the epitome of professionalism, customer service and knowledge. The facility is modern, spotlessly clean and welcoming. As soon as you walk through the door you are made to feel welcome, questions about scheduling etc. are handled diligently by the front office. The nurses and patient coordinators are incredible and encourage you to call if you have further questions after you leave the office. Dr. Engel, I believe, may have been a magician in a former life. His precision and attention to detail, do not go unnoticed. He is both kind, honest, realistic and professional. The prices for the procedures are competitive with other practices in the area, however, I would remain with Dr. Engel even if his prices were twice as high. He strives for perfection and his results are breathtaking. I would highly recommend Dr. Engel and Sarasota Plastic Surgery to my family and friends.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Engel and his entire staff are beyond amazing. Everyone is kind, informative and knowledgeable. This was a huge chapter for me but they made it such a breeze. So, very pleased. The results are far beyond what I could’ve expected. Very natural just as requested.

Mommy Makeover

Unbelievable results, the entire experience was 1st class. I am able to live the active life I love. My energy level is amazing. The time it takes me to get ready to go out is minimal, which I really enjoy. I spend very little time picking out what to wear because all my clothes fit!

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Engel and staff went above and beyond throughout the surgery and recovery process. I would highly recommend Dr. Engel and Sarasota Plastic Surgery to any family or friend looking for a plastic surgeon.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Engel was extremely professionally and listened to what I wanted. I am extremely happy with my breast revision. I trust him and will have other procedures in the future. [Single best thing is...] How great the Dr. and his staff were to my husband and myself.

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.

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%!


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 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!
