About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Scott J. Engel, MD is a partner at Sarasota Plastic Surgery Center. With nearly a decade of experience, he has a reputation for achieving beautiful, natural results. While regarded as a plastic surgeon who is a perfectionist, patients from around the world also appreciate his warm and compassionate care. Dr. Engel emphasizes the importance of good communication with his patients, educating them so they can make well-informed decisions, while focusing on each individual’s unique concerns. The practice includes an ambulatory surgery center and medical offices both equipped with advanced technology, as well as a full-service MedSpa and Skin Care Store offering advanced skin rejuvenation. Sarasota Plastic Surgery was founded in 1991 with the aim of continually pursuing excellence in plastic surgery. That mission has resulted in talented surgeons and an exceptional staff who work hard to stay abreast of the most recent advances in medical and cosmetic procedures. Our surgeons enjoy improving the appearance and lives of their patients, and they do so with the highest safety and quality standards in mind.
