My self-esteem and confidence have already improved by milestones - I normally don't write reviews but Dr. J Timothy Katzen and his team have gone above and beyond my expectations. I had gastric sleeve surgery and lost a total of 125 pounds. I kept convincing myself that I don't need plastic or reconstructive surgery. I figured I was healthy, and excess skin and fat is something I could live with. Boy was I wrong. Looking at my flabs and wrinkled skin was a bad reminder of my old obese self, the person I wanted to move on from. I had such low self-esteem when I was obese. I found Dr. J Timothy Katzen through Real Self and had no doubt he is the right surgeon for my situation. Dr. Katzen was the clear choice because of how many before and after pictures he had, the number of great reviews, the questions and answers, the videos, and his credentials, I mean I can go on forever. I felt super confident in my decision and sure enough, he delivered. Dr. Katzen did a circumferential body lift and I could not be more pleased with the results and care I received from everyone. I am forever grateful for how Dr. Katzen transformed my body. My self-esteem and confidence have already improved by milestones.

(Translated by Google) I am happy to be a patient of Dr. to be cats. I'm an aquafill victim. After my injection in Düsseldorf in 2017, I ran into problems very quickly. For several years I regularly took medication for pain and was afraid for my health and for my life. From the first minutes of meeting Dr. Katzen on I realized that he perfectly knows all the problems related to aquafilling.Before the operation I was worried, but my doctor approached me and reassured me, I went to the operating room with a smile . Everything went well and the result is better than I could have imagined. dr Katzen was very careful with my body, it looks like I have no gel. I am thin and you could see and feel aquafilling. This gel was in the layers of the skin, but now there is nothing there. Many thanks to dr. Katzen and his entire team (Original) Ich bin glücklich, Patientin von Dr. Katzen zu sein. Ich bin ein Aquafilling-Opfer. Nach meiner Spritze 2017 in Düsseldorf habe ich sehr schnell Probleme bekommen. Mehrere Jahre lang nahm ich regelmäßig Medikamente gegen Schmerzen und hatte Angst um meine Gesundheit und um mein Leben. Von den ersten Minuten des Treffens mit Dr. Katzen an wurde mir klar, dass er alle Probleme im Zusammenhang mit Aquafilling perfekt kennt.Vor der Operation war ich besorgt, aber mein Arzt kam auf mich zu und beruhigte mich, ich ging mit einem Lächeln in den Operationssaal . Alles hat gut geklappt und das Ergebnis ist besser als ich es mir hätte vorstellen können. Dr. Katzen war sehr vorsichtig mit meinem Körper, es sieht so aus, als hätte ich kein Gel. Ich bin dünn und Aquafilling war zu sehen und zu spüren. Dieses Gel war in den Hautschichten, aber jetzt ist dort nichts mehr. Vielen Dank an Dr. Katzen und sein gesamtes Team

How does Closed Silicone Injections Removal Surgery work?

The surgical removal technique that will be used to perform your procedure depends on the location of the silicone injection, the amount of silicone in the area, and the type of complications that are being experienced due to the injections. During your consultation, Dr. Katzen will determine if you are an ideal candidate for the closed silicone removal surgery. A closed silicone removal surgery includes three unique instruments. When used separately, these three instruments are of limited value. However, when these instruments are combined, Dr. Katzen can harness all their energy to maximally extract silicone from the injected site. Dr. Katzen will utilize our Ultrasound-Guided VASER Assisted Silicone Suction (UVASS) technology to remove your silicone injections. During this procedure, ultrasound is used to locate the silicone in the operating room. Once located, tumescent fluid (a sterile solution of saline, lidocaine, and a vasoconstrictor—epinephrine) is injected into the area to reduce swelling, provide anesthesia, and optimize the surgical field for the next step — the VASER. The VASER is a surgical instrument that employs sound energy to melt the scar tissue around the injected silicone. After the ultra-sound localizes the silicone and the VASER breaks up the scar tissue surrounding the silicone, Dr. Katzen uses custom-made, proprietary suction cannulas to remove any remaining scar tissue and liquefied silicone.

What Should I Expect Following Closed Injections Removal?

The length and intensity of your recovery after closed-technique silicone injection removal may depend on your overall health and any symptoms or complications you were experiencing before the procedure performed by Dr. Katzen. In the first few weeks after closed silicone injection removal in Beverly Hills, CA, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. However, the issues caused by illegal or faulty silicone injections should go away quickly. On average, patients can expect 6-8 weeks for the initial swelling to subside after silicone removal recovery with UVASS. Your final result should take about 4-6 months to appear. Remember that UVASS is effective, safe, and less painful than the open technique. Moreover, UVASS provides permanent results by gently removing the scar tissue and silicone from the previously injected sites.
