Jacqui V.'s Triumph: From Gastric Bypass to Body Sculpting

By: Dr. J. Timothy Katzen


“Gastric bypass gave me my health back. I lost 135 lbs, half my body weight. I went from a size 26 to a size 10 in jeans. Despite the fact that I had reached my high school weight, and that I looked great in most clothes, however, I still did not feel like I was done. I knew the only way to overcome my obstacles was through plastic-surgery. And living in So Cal, the hub of plastic surgery with so many plastic surgeons to choose from, I knew I had my research cut out for me.I read books, surfed the internet, and asked people I knew for referrals. The more I learned, and the more surgeons I consulted, the more confused and overwhelmed I became… until I met Dr. Katzen.My consultation with Dr. Katzen was the most comfortable one ever. Dr. Katzen’s experience and knowledge shined through. He took the time to hear me out, answer my questions, and address my concerns. I did not leave without setting up a surgery date.

As far as my overall results, I AM ECSTATIC. Dr. Katzen has sculpted my body into one that I am not ashamed to show off. I am down to a size 8 in jeans. I actually enjoy shopping again I do not dread running into old friends that I have not seen in ages anymore… and I look forward to meeting new people.

Essentially, I now have my life back, and I have Dr. Katzen to thank for that. I obviously cannot say enough good things about my plastic surgery experience with Dr. Katzen. His bedside manner is unmatched. He has definitely raised the bar to unattainable heights for the physicians and surgeons I will encounter in the future. If I ever need plastic surgery again, it will definitely be with Dr. Katzen… and I recommend him to anyone that is interested or considering plastic surgery.”
