Professional Statement

Dr. Nitin J. Engineer is an accredited fellowship-trained Plastic Surgeon specializing in Aesthetic, Reconstructive, Hand, and Microvascular Surgery. He is the founder, CEO, and principal surgeon at Engineered Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Institute, which is dedicated to serving the greater Las Vegas metropolitan area. Dr. Engineer developed a very early interest in the surgical specialties when he secured one of only two positions as a high-school student to work as an Anesthesia Technician in the operating room in his hometown of Macon, Georgia. He held this position for three consecutive years, and this rare opportunity would be the foundation of his deeply rooted passion for plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Engineer’s earliest experiences in the operating room exposed and allowed him to observe complex reconstructive operations involving the entire human body. His greatest admiration for plastic and reconstructive surgery is the emphasis on not only reconstruction of form but also restoration of function for patients. Furthermore, Dr. Engineer’s extensive experience in Reconstructive Plastic Surgery has prepared him for his successful career in the field of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, which he considers to be the perfect union of art and science. Dr. Engineer has completed a total of 10 years of postgraduate training in plastic surgery, hand surgery, and general surgery to refine his surgical skills and provide the most comprehensive and compassionate care to all of his patients. In addition, he has extensive experience as a practicing surgeon, who developed a successful private practice for 10 years. As a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), Dr. Engineer has achieved board certification in General Surgery and Hand and Microvascular Surgery and is board-eligible in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Upon his return to the Las Vegas Valley, Dr. Engineer founded Engineered Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Institute in January 2020. The goal of his new practice is to provide a unique and individual experience to each patient in a boutique environment, which allows one to achieve their ultimate plastic surgical goals. Dr. Engineer is known for his kind demeanor and dedication to spending a great amount of time educating his patients, answering all questions regarding their plastic surgical concerns, and setting realistic expectations. In light of his comprehensive training in aesthetic surgery, Dr. Engineer has developed a passion and surgical expertise in cosmetic procedures of the face, breast, and body. His particular interests include rhinoplasty, facelift, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, and breast revision surgery. He also specializes in body contouring with liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), mommy makeover procedures, and cosmetic surgery for men, including hair transplantation. Finally, Dr. Engineer also offers an array of nonsurgical aesthetic treatment options including injections with neuromodulators (eg. Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau) and hyaluronic acid fillers (eg. Juvederm and Restylane), Sculptra, chemical peels, laser therapy, and numerous other skin rejuvenation products. Dr. Engineer looks forward to meeting you in consultation to discuss and offer the best treatment options to address your aesthetic goals and achieve the beauty you see in yourself.
