Tracy B's Story
“I had Gastric Bypass in April 2006 and had lost little over 100 pounds. My body bounced back pretty well from the weight loss with the exception of my tummy area and the breasts. So I decided to look into the possibility of plastic surgery. I had gone to a few consultations with other doctors however some made me feel uncomfortable and then some just didn’t leave much of an impression.A few plastic surgeons came to our weight loss support group meetings and spoke, but I wasn’t impressed with them either. My friend told me about Dr. Katzen coming to our group meeting and I wanted to go to the meeting however something else came up and I couldn’t go. My friend ended up going and said that she was very impressed with his presentation and he seems like he knows his stuff! So when we found out that Dr. Katzen was doing a presentation in Anaheim (An hour and a half away from us), we decided to go and get a free consult for me. I felt so comfortable with him right away! Normally having a man look at all of your naked imperfections is not so comfortable, but Dr. Katzen never made me feel like I was even naked! I knew right then, that this was the man that would transform my body for me!!Dr. Katzen performed a tummy tuck, breast reduction/lift and implants to give me the fullness at the top of the breast that I wanted. He listened to exactly what I wanted and that is exactly what I got!! At the after care facility, he came by every day even on the weekend to visit and check on me. I ended up with a smile on my face when he walked into the room because he made me feel special and made me forget the pain even if only for the time that he was in the room. Dr. Katzen was so professional and sweet even when I encountered complications. He knew that I was freaked out yet he made me feel at ease even when I thought that my insides might fall out!!
I am so glad that I chose Dr. Katzen as my surgeon and I can not be happier with my results. I am still healing and he continues to be a support to me. He makes every patient feel special, and not that they are just a number. I have recommended Dr. Katzen to a few of my friends and will continue to recommend him to anyone who is looking for a plastic surgeon.”
