Scott J. Engel, MD, FACS Reviews (123)

Face Lift

The results speak for themselves. Amazing!! Dr. Engel is a very talented doctor and a true artist. [Single best thing is...] Now my face has a secret.... it lies about my age.

Breast Augmentation

The staff was very professional and made me feel very comfortable with my body and the modifications I wanted to make. Both the doctor and his assistant were genuine and helpful with what would look best on my body to meet my needs. One single best aspect of my experience would have to be the staff. They are very knowledgeable and genuine.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Engel made me feel very comfortable while still maintaining his professionalism. I felt like he genuinely cared what my goals were and he never tried to push me in a different direction. I didn’t think it was possible for me to look the way I do, as I had very realistic expectations. But the outcome has far exceeded what I thought was possible. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Engel’s attention to detail and him clearly being a perfectionist.

Eyelid Surgery

NO scarring, great results and minimal down time!

Breast Reduction

Excellent surgeon and very good follow up

Fat Transfer

Dr. Engel and his entire staff are fantastic. Explaining procedures, expected results along with the thoughtful care throughout. Love the demeanor & patient care.

Face Lift

1. First surgery while waiting to go into OR was cancelled due to tornado watch...imagine that! Dr. Engel so graciously and professionally handled the situation. For me concerning, as I thought maybe an omen not to proceed to re-schedule for unknown reason, not easy to get re-psyched up to try again. 2. Appreciated the nurse and Dr. Engel coming to the office the next day...New Years Day holiday to take care of me. 3. I had slow healing and eye problems that Dr. Engel worked closely with my Ophthalmologist together to get me in a better place.

Breast Augmentation

Exceptional staff throughout the entire experience. As an RN at times I can be highly critical, I honestly can't say enough good about the staff and Dr. Engel - many Dr.'s could learn from his incredible bedside manner.

Tummy Tuck

Choosing to have plastic surgery is not a light decision. And choosing a surgeon isn’t any easier of a task. In my consultation with Dr. Engle his passion for his work and consideration of my comfort gave me all the confidence I needed in him as my surgeon. His dedication extended to everyone on his team. And I couldn’t be happier with my results.

Eyelid Surgery

I found the staff to be extremely caring and professional. Dr. Engel explained the pro's and con's and the whole procedure in detail. He was very patient and answered all my questions. At no time did I feel pressured to have the procedure. After the procedure the staff was very caring and attentive. Everything turned out just as Dr. Engel said it would. I am extremely pleased with my whole experience from start to finish.

Breast Implant Revision

I loved my Dr. Took awesome care of me! Results were awesome! I had a rupture breast implant and Dr. Engel put me back together again! He took all my stress and worries away.The staff and nurses were awesome and took great care of me.


I wanted hump of bridge of nose reduced. Also the lateral deviation. The former was 50% accomplished. The latter not at all [deviation returned]. Not worth the expense and hassle. I expected a much better result.

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%!
