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.

A miracle worker - I look like an improved version of myself - If I could give 10 stars I would. Dr. Katzen is by far the best doctor I've ever encountered. His bedside manner is impeccable and he never made me feel rushed in my appointments with him, answering every question I had. I came to him to finish my weight loss transformation after losing 150 lbs resulting in a lot of excess skin. I had 2 rounds of surgery combining several procedures together; round 1 was lower body lift with muscle repair, neck lipo, and medial thigh lift and round 2 was arm lift with horizontal back lift, breast lift, and augmentation. It was a lot and recovery was intense but Katzen and his staff always made sure that I was well taken care of and supported every step of the way. My results are beyond anything I ever imagined Dr. Katzen truly is an artist but most importantly he didn't try to sell me on procedures I didn't need and he tailored my surgeries for the best results so I look like an improved version of myself and not lot a plastic doll off the assembly lot. I'm so grateful to Dr. Katzen and his amazing staff.

Changed my life - Thank you Dr Katzen and his team for all your kindness and hard work. I'm so grateful I found you. I just couldn't live another year of this. Like I said I have tons of friends in the silicone community and I know it's a rush when you first start to mod journey and you don't really think of the consequence or long term problems. Like I said I started penis and ball enhancement about 17 years ago and it was fun at first...until it wasn't. I know a lot of guys who don't like their silicone but think if they just keep getting more at least they'll have enormous junk and guys or maybe even girls, will love that. But if you're not happy with your results and WISH you could take it back, I recommend giving Dr Katzen a call. He didn't judge me and made me feel comfortable right from the start. He has an awesome bedside manner. When he said he could make me look 85-90 percent better I cried. A lot of you guys might know me as LAmeatpacker from all the silicone groups, so you know you can trust me. You'll know when it's time to make the call. I'm looking forward to healing and not having infections on vacation, not having time sucking TSA dramas, to buying pants off the rack, and not paying for custom made, wearing shorts and tights again at the gym, and not having to sit down to piss. Thanks again Dr Katzen you changed my life.

How is silicone removed from the lips?

Depending on the current state of your lips, Dr. Katzen will choose a silicone removal technique that is ideal for you. During ultrasound-guided VASER assisted silicone suction (UVASS), an ultrasound is performed in order to locate the silicone and a tumescent fluid is injected into the lips. This fluid helps to reduce swelling, provide anesthesia to the area, and allow for easier removal. Next, suction is used to remove the silicone and any surrounding scar tissue. 

If direct excision is required for removal, Dr. Katzen will start by making an incision around the area of silicone and scar tissue. Next, the scar tissue and silicone are excised and the remaining skin and tissues are sutured together. If needed, diseased or infected skin can also be removed during this process.
