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. More

Dr Katzen is an amazing surgeon. I scheduled a brachioplasty and was concerned about the procedure and the scaring. Dr. Katzen made me feel very comfortable and he was very easy to talk with. The surgery was painless, recovery was relatively easy and the scarring was minimal. I was ecstatic after the bandages were removed...firm arms, no loose skin and thin light scar line. Dr Katzen is a down to earth, caring surgeon. His surgical skills are incredible!!! The office staff are also GREAT. More

2 months post-op tummy tuck - he's very patient & caring - My experience with Dr. J Timothy Katzen has been nothing but great. I searched for Dr. Katzen on several reputable websites. I love that Dr. Katzen takes time to engage with his patients and explains things that make it easy for us patients to understand. When I met Dr. Katzen, I was very pleased. He possesses all the traits I was looking for in a surgeon. He's someone I can trust and offers high-quality care. The morning of surgery, I was a nervous wreck, he held my hand and calmed me. He's so patient and caring. Highly recommend Dr. Katzen and his practice. More

I healed really well with excellent results - My sister and I both had gastric bypass surgery a while back. She started her reconstructive surgeries before me. She had a body lift, thigh lift, torsoplasty, arm lift, and breast lift with Dr. Timothy Katzen. I accompanied her to every appointment because I knew one day I would need a surgeon to reconstruct my body as well. I ended up having the same surgeries as my sister. We both healed really well with excellent results. There is no one we would trust our bodies to. Dr. Katzen is beyond amazing at what he does. More

Silicone removal then BBL - so fortunate to have found him - Eleven years ago, I made the horrible decision of having silicone injections in my butt. I regretted that decision so badly. Fast forward to the end of 2021, I got Dr. Katzen to remove the silicone from my buttocks. After months of having my body heal, I returned to Katzen to have a Brazilian Butt Lift. This is one of many of Dr. Katzen's specialties. I'm so fortunate to have found him. More

Great experience with 360 body lift after losing over 100 lbs - After losing over 100 lbs from WLS, I was seeking a surgeon to repair my skin. Contrary to what my friends think, having skin removal was a necessity for me. The folds in my abdomen area was getting bad. It caused me to get skin rashes and infections. I had to use powder after every shower to help keep my skin folds dry and clean. I went to Dr. Katzen for skin removal surgery in June 2022. He did a 360 body lift on me and I am no longer dealing with the skin folds or skin infections. My abdomen, lateral legs and hips look amazing. Dr. Katzen is just so good at what he does. More

Made my tummy so smooth & flat & managed my pain - so happy! - I am a wimp when it comes to pain so the decision to have a tummy tuck was not taken lightly. I am so glad Dr. Katzen is as kind as he is. He was very understanding and managed my pain nicely. Dr. Katzen did my tummy tuck in about 3 hours and he made my tummy so smooth and so flat. My decision to choose Dr. Katzen as my surgeon was a great one. So happy with everything! More

Circumferential Body Lift and Medial Thigh Lift - A year and 8 months ago, I had gastric sleeve and was down 131 pounds. My body got smaller but I was draped in wrinkles. This is really common with weight loss patients so I was not shocked. I went on realself.com and found this site to be very educational. I found more information than I would ever need and it helped me make a very important decision about who my surgeon would be. Without a doubt, I narrowed my decision to Dr. Katzen and one other surgeon. I consulted with both surgeons and confidently chose Dr. Katzen after meeting them both in consultation.Dr. Katzen did my body lift and thigh lift and I highly recommend him. More

360 Body Lift with the Very Best Surgeon - I am one who always plans way in advance. Before I even had bariatric surgery, I had already started to research reconstructive plastic surgery. The first page that always popped up on my search was Dr. Katzen and I can see why. I remembered how I dreamt of having a normal body after being obese for so many years.When the time came for reconstructing my body after weight loss, I of course went to Dr. Katzen. He did not disappoint. He performed the 360 body lift on me and it turned out how I envisioned it to be. This man is a genius and has the best personality ever. More

My arms finally look normal, and my confidence is restored - In September of 2021, I had a botched Arm Lift in Turkey that left me with not only uneven arms, but they didn't even look like they belonged to the same person. I had extreme dogearing on both arms and was ashamed to show them to anyone. I couldn't bare looking at them myself. I spoke with multiple plastic surgeons afterwards to fix them, and many appointments left me feeling hopeless and devastated.It wasn't until I met with Dr. Katzen that I started to feel like there was still hope to fix my arms. He was super kind and honest and reassured me he would do his best to make my arms look better.I am now almost three months post my operation, and I could not be happier! My arms finally look normal, and my confidence is restored. I want to thank Dr. Katzen for his amazing job and the staff for answering all my questions throughout the process. More

Brachioplasty after 79lbs weight loss - I expect incisions to be light & flat - My review is for a brachioplasty, even though I have had other surgeries with Dr. Katzen (I wouldn't go anywhere else :))I had lost 79 pounds but my arms were always large. After losing weight, I had a lot of skin that just hung in my arms. It was ugly and it made shopping for tops very hard. Dr. Katzen did a fantastic job with the arm lift. Based on how my incisions have healed in the past, I expect my arm incisions to be very light and flat. I give Dr. Katzen a 5 out of 5 stars. He's amazing! More

Top notch surgeon created an hourglass waistline with flat abdomen - I had considered going to Mexico for a tummy tuck because it was going to be cheaper until a close friend of mine told me about her aunt who ended up with severe infections after having a tummy tuck in Mexico. By the time her aunt was treated properly, the cost ended up being so much higher than what it would have cost her to have her surgery in the states. After careful research, I chose Dr. Katzen to do my tummy tuck surgery and I was very happy with my decision. Dr. Katzen has the best bedside manner I have ever experienced. He's genuine and caring. He created an hourglass waistline for me with a flat abdomen. I highly recommend Dr. Katzen if you are looking for a top-notch plastic surgeon. More

Extended tummy tuck for the excess skin in my abdomen area - The best description I can give Dr. Katzen is that he is a really good surgeon with a kind soul. Anyone who has met him knows what I am saying. I was a bit hesitant to call Dr. Katzen's office at first because he is located in Beverly Hills and I thought his prices would be too high. I promised myself I would go to at least a couple of consultations so I can know my options and get second opinions of what I needed. To my surprise, Dr. Katzen's rates were comparable to the other office, but in my opinion, Dr. Katzen is much superior. Dr. Katzen suggested I get an extended tummy tuck for the excess skin I had in my abdomen area. I am so content with the surgery outcome and my care. More

I already feel like a different person - can't wait to come back - Dr. Katzen did wonders for my body and mind. I had bariatric surgery and lost over 150 pounds. After weight loss, everything drooped. I researched online for surgeons who specialize in weight loss patients like me. Dr. Katzen showed up on my top search so many different times. He had so many videos, pictures, lectures, podcast, and social media stuff pop up. There was so information about Dr. Katzen and his practice. I was very relieved to discover so of him and his work. I had the first stage of my reconstructive procedure, which is the body lift. I already feel like a different person. I can't wait to come back to Dr. Katzen finish more stages. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do my plastic surgeries but him. More

My abdomen is flat and it looks good - no more beer belly - I’m a 43-year-old male patient. I had a massive “beer belly” that didn’t bother me until I met my beautiful wife (married for one year). She never once complained about my “beer belly” but I felt uncomfortable being around her family and friends. There have been many parties, some casual, and some formal that made me feel a bit out of place. I went to Dr. Katzen for my tummy tuck. Dr. Katzen is very easy to talk to, and funny too. The procedure was straightforward, I had no complications. My abdomen is flat and it looks good. More

very happy with my care, results, and overall experience - Dr. Katzen lives up to his hyped reputation. Everyone that I have encountered that knows Dr. Katzen has had really good things to say about him. Those people include my family physician, his patients that belong to the same bariatric group as I do, and my colleagues in the medical field. The procedure I had with Dr. Katzen was a Brachioplasty. He placed my incisions under my arms where it's not noticeable unless my arms are raised or turned a certain way. Dr. Katzen said my incisions should heal extremely well. I am very happy with my care, results, and overall experience. More

Loving my New Body (Body Lift and Thigh Lift) - I met Dr. Katzen at a weight loss convention. He did a presentation on Plastic Reconstructive Surgery after Weight Loss. He talked about all the common procedures that his weight loss patients have had done, such as body lift, thigh lift, breast aug, arm lift, torsoplasty, facelift, etc...I was so intrigued by him and his skills. He literally transforms bodies so beautifully. At the time, I had just had bariatric surgery. One and a half years later, I went to him for a body lift and thigh lift. He made me a new body that I love so much. More

Beautiful tummy tuck - they were helpful every step of the way - My tummy tuck experience with Dr. Timothy Katzen has been nothing but perfect. When I showed up for my initial consult, Dr. Katzen did not rush me. He let me ask as many questions as I needed to, in order to feel comfortable. Before I left the office, his staff gave me everything I needed to prepare myself for surgery. They were also very helpful every step of the way. My tummy tuck turned out beautifully. More

He reshaped my body into something I could have never imagined - How lucky am I to have found Dr. Katzen online? I understand why his patients talk so highly of him. I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen after weight loss surgery. Dr. Katzen is so talented and understanding. He's worked on hundreds of weight loss patients, so he understands our needs. My body had endured so much weight gain and loss through the years and it showed. My body had stretched out so much and had excess saggy skin all over. Dr. Katzen not only repaired the skin, but he also reshaped my body into something I could have never imagined could be done. So thankful for Dr. Katzen's knowledge, skills, and kindness. More

No more body insecurities - feel more confident in my clothing - Last year was a life-changing year for me. I was married for 8 years with 3 beautiful children. I filed for divorce and had to start a new chapter of my life. I started dating recently but found myself being insecure about my body, specifically my breasts and abdomen. I researched on Real Self and found Dr. Katzen to be the right fit for me, plus I live down the street from his Beverly Hills office. I underwent a Mommy Makeover: tummy tuck and breast augmentation. Dr. Katzen made me feel beautiful and young again. I feel more confident in my clothing and how I carry myself. Many thanks to Dr. Katzen for boosting my confidence! More

Silicone Injection Removal then Buttock Implants - I wish I knew then what I know now about raw silicone injections. Hopefully, my story can prevent another person from getting raw silicone injected into their buttocks. I got severely ill and it took my PCP doctor many tests to finally figure out it was due to the silicone injections in my buttocks. My doctor referred me to Dr. Katzen to have the silicone removed from my buttocks and it resolved my issues. In a few months, after I completely heal, I will be coming back to Dr. Katzen to have him do buttock implants. More

Had my body reconstructed after bariatric surgery - amazing work - Feb 2020, I had bariatric surgery. Within the first year, I was able to achieve my goal weight and maintained it. I felt healthy and energetic but my loose skin was an issue and a constant reminder of my years being obese. I am in my early 40s but the excess skin on my body says otherwise. I looked like an 80-year-old woman under my clothes. Prior to weight loss surgery, I was made aware of Dr. Katzen and his amazing work. There was no doubt he was going to be the one to reconstruct my body. I had two stages of surgeries with Dr. Katzen already. The first surgery was my 360 body lift. Seven weeks later, I returned for a medial thigh lift. I am already on the schedule for my third stage, brachioplasty and breast augmentation with lift. I fully trust Dr. Katzen and his team to manage my reconstructive journey. He’s been so amazing! More

Feeling Myself Again After Silicone Removal from my Buttocks - I am hoping my review can help someone else out. Five years ago, I didn't make such a wise decision when I agreed to accompany my friend to her procedure to have raw silicone injected into her buttocks. They all talked me into getting it done too (for a discount) and I agreed. Initially, my buttocks looked good. It was nice and full. Over time, I started feeling pain in my buttocks. My butt became disproportionate, red, and lumpy. Of course, I became very concerned and did some research. Thank goodness I found many videos of Dr. Katzen talking about the dangers of raw silicone injections. He talked about the different ways he could remove it. After consultation with Dr. Katzen, I had the silicone removed from my buttocks with him. Dr. Katzen said the silicone moved to different parts of my body, which was so wild to hear. So very grateful to find a specialist like Dr. Katzen that understands silicone removal. I feel so much better now. I plan to return to Dr. Katzen to have buttock implants in the future. More

Posterior buttocks lift right side only - he finally fixed me - Hello, I wanted to share my experience with Dr. Katzen & the team. I am beyond grateful I found him. Dr. Katzen and his team are amazing. From scheduling my surgery to my recovery, I was always treated with good care. Dr. Katzen always made me feel comfortable such a sweet caring person and very humble. I had a BBL done in 2015 by a famous Doctor and my outcome wasn't what I thought it would be. I came out with an asymmetry issue :( My right side of my buttock was bigger and saggy, I also didn't help my situation by gaining weight after being depressed about it. I went to two different surgeons to try and fix my problem the first one suggested liposuction with laser tightening treatment, but that didn't work I felt like my right buttocks sagged even more. So I left it alone and continued with life. I ended up getting pregnant had my baby and I lost weight, well I felt like I was sagging more. So I had a Posterior buttocks lift with another surgeon, well guess what I was left with the same issue one side was bigger than the other. at that point I was distraught. I felt helpless and mad at myself for not doing things right the first time. I finally found Dr. Katzen the only doctor that took the time to go over everything he didn't rush me or judge me and listen to my concerns. I don't live in California so I had a consultation over the phone with him, but he made me feel so comfortable and happy that he would be able to help me. I traveled there for my surgery and during my, in-person consultation he went over step by step every detail of my surgery. I am so thankful for your professionalism, kindness & for just listening to me. You fixed me finally after all I had been through Dr. Katzen was the only one that did it right! I don't have to walk around self-conscious about my body, I don't have to cover myself with sweaters around my waist in 100° weather. I can finally be out in public with my family without having them be prisoners of my mistake. Just some advice if you get surgery do it right the first time, don't let social media fool you find someone professional and with lots of experience like Dr.Katzen! Thank you again Dr. Katzen & Team! More

Thigh lift and body lift at the same time after losing 150 lbs - After weight loss surgery, I lost 150 pounds. I NEEDED a body lift and thigh lift so badly. Dr. Katzen was able to combine both of those surgeries for me. Because it was a long surgery, I stayed at a recovery center for 2 days. Dr. Katzen came by the recovery center to check on me both days to make sure I was comfortable and doing well. I just love his bedside manner so much. The nurses also took wonderful care of me. My body lift and thigh lift made a massive difference in my body shape. I have gone down 4 to 6 clothing sizes (depending on the brand). I'm in love with my body. More

Body Lift with a Talented and Reliable Plastic Surgeon - Let me tell you about this plastic surgeon, Dr. Katzen, whom I met at a weight loss conference. I first attended one of Dr. Katzen's talks and left feeling so hopeful for the day I was going to have my own surgery with him. I scheduled a consultation the same day and immediately booked surgery for the summer. Dr. Katzen is genuinely kind, and caring and is an expert in his field. He's performed hundreds of surgeries just within the weight loss community alone. Dr. Katzen did my body lift and it looks incredible. I highly recommend checking Dr. Katzen if you are looking for a reliable and talented surgeon. More

Arm lift revision to fix someone else's mistake - brilliant from day 1! - I have to say what a breathe of fresh air to meet a surgeon, who takes the time to listen to your concerns, and gives doesn't give you unreal expectations. Given he was doing an arm lift revision, he was fixing someone else's mistake.He spent time explaining what needed to be done, and make sure I felt safe, as I was mentally scared from my last surgery elsewhere.I am so pleased with the results and I'm still healing, as my surgery was on in May this year. I want to thank Dr Katzen and his amazing team, to making me feel like I mattered and was not just another patient. More

Felt Better Mentally and Physically After Silicone Injection Removal from Buttocks - I learned so much about silicone injection from following Dr. Katzen on Youtube and Instagram. He shows footage of how dangerous it is to have silicone injections in the buttocks and how he can remove them. I am one of the patients that experienced major problems with having silicone injections from another facility. I should have known better but I did not do enough research before having the illegal injections. Fast forward, thank goodness for Dr. Katzen. Dr. Katzen was able to get me on the schedule fairly quickly and performed silicone removal on my buttocks. Let me tell you the feeling of relief after my surgery was lifted. I felt so much better both physically and mentally. More

Dr. Katzen is a well known plastic surgeon in the bariatric community. He specializes in 360 lower body lifts, I knew this was what I wanted so I reached out. I had 3 other consultations with surgeons here in the US and Mexico. Dr. Katzen was the only one who didn’t recommend a FDL. He got me the result I wanted without cutting me vertically. The muscle repair was super important to me too. Dr. Katzen is thorough and you won’t waste money going to him. You’ll be pleased with his work. I got a 360 LBL and breast lift with augmentation. If I get a thigh reduction I’ll go to him as a repeat patient. More

After much research, I chose Dr. Katzen to perform my arm lift and I would choose him again a million more times! From the initial consultation to the surgery, to the post-op care and the various follow-ups, he has always shown the utmost professionalism, knowledge, and genuine care for me and my concerns. He has never made me feel rushed and has always taken all the time needed to answer my questions. I just knew I was in excellent hands. I felt at ease during all the phases of my arm lift journey because Dr Katzen is so prepared and experienced, but also very personable. He is warm and kind without ever sounding fake or exaggerated. He is fun and a pleasure to chit-chat with to boot. Most importantly, my arms look amazing. He did a phenomenal job and my recovery was uneventful. My scars didn't heal too well (of course not his fault), but Dr. Katzen has gone out of his way to minimize their appearance by offering various treatments. He takes a lot of pride in his work and clearly wants his patients to be happy, so he sees his work through. Last, I found his office and staff to be great as well: I always feel at home when I go for follow-ups (thank you Anna, Kiara, Talia and everybody else). In short, I highly recommend Dr. Katzen!

Vaser guided lipo for buttock silicone injection removal - now have zero pain - First off like Dr. Katzen likes to say "if you are thinking of getting silicone injections DON'T". I was misguided and made the horrible decision to get silicone injection in the buttocks. It was the biggest mistake i have ever made. After much research I found Dr. Katzen and scheduled an appointment to meet with him. Yes he is not the most cost efficient option but you get what you pay for with this amazing doctor. I was having lots of pain in the legs and lower back. At times i struggled to walk as the silicone was traveling to different parts of my body, i was getting worse and worse as the time went. Doctor scheduled an MRI and found the Vaser guided lipo was the best option for me. I went in and had the surgery in horrible shape, he did an amazing job removing the silicone as I now have zero pain and am able to move like normal. Dr. Katzen was very helpful, professional, detailed and caring unlike other plastic surgeons I have dealt with in the past. His staff is amazing Talia and Anna are amazing. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a plastic surgeon, the best in the business! So much so that i will be returning to Dr. Katzen for my reconstruction surgery. Thank you Dr. Katzen for helping me through this nightmare and bringing me back to my normal self. More

Bedside manner from a surgeon, is hard to find, and Dr Katzen makes you feel like you are his only patient. His craftsmanship on my arms, I am amazing how he took time to get them look amazing.

Dr. Katzen told me that based on my MRI, my silicone was in the muscle. He explained my options to me and told me that the VASER lipo wouldn't remove all the silicone, so I went for the cut technique because my health is more important. I didn't have any pain when I woke up from anesthesia. I had no infections or complications from surgery. Dr. Katzen is friendly and caring. He definitely knows what he is doing, which is why I'll be back. I knew exactly what to expect and he made my incision exactly where he said he would. There were no surprises. Everybody in the office is friendly and Talia, the PA, called to check on me after surgery which was really nice. I never felt rushed in the office. I rate Dr. Katzen a 10/10! More

Dr. Katzen and his team have been amazing since the first moment I contacted them. There are too many wonderful things to say about Dr. Katzen to list here! He is a very talented surgeon who genuinely cares for his patients. I am an out of state patient and he would always answer his personal line anytime I called with a question or concern after surgery. I must also mention that he has the BEST physician assistant, Talia. She has been so helpful and, without her assistance, this process would have been beyond stressful! His entire staff are wonderful as well. Dr. Katzen gave me results beyond my expectations and I highly recommend him for post weight loss surgery! More

I knew he would take good care of me - My experience with Dr. Katzen is a family story. My husband had gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Katzen last year.

Wanted nothing but the best money can buy - exceeded expectations - The thought process of having elective surgery for me was a well-thought-out process. Because I paid cash for my tummy tuck and breast augmentation, I wanted nothing but the best money can buy. I was not willing to settle for a mediocre surgeon just to save a few dollars, although I got lucky with finding Dr. Katzen. His prices are comparable to other plastic surgeons. I am grateful for Dr. Katzen. He exceeded my expectations all around. More

Body lift over 15 years ago and my body still looks amazing - I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen over 15 years ago and my body still looks amazing. I bumped into Dr. Katzen recently which is why it prompted me to write this review. Dr. Katzen has not changed a bit, he is still that kind man that did my surgery many years ago. I love seeing him still successful and thriving. More

Buttock Implants Gave my Body the Shape I Have Always Dreamed Of. - For context, I am 5'4" and weigh 102 lbs. I wanted a Brazilian butt lift but I did not have sufficient fat to do a fat transfer. Dr. Katzen suggested a butt implant. I am so pleased with how full my buttocks look. I finally have curves in all the right places. I am now able to wear all types of clothing and look cute in them.

Silicone Injection Removal from Lips and Buttocks - I learned the expensive way that trying to go cheap doesn't always pay off. I work at a club where many of the girls had silicone injections in their lips and butt. I jumped on the bandwagon and got them done too. A few months after silicone injections, some of us experienced problems. We collectively did research and found an amazing surgeon, Dr. Katzen, in Beverly Hills that removed these silicone injections. Dr. Katzen said these silicone injections are bad and illegal to inject into our bodies. These silicones had traveled to different parts of our bodies but luckily Dr. Katzen was able to remove them. We're all so grateful to have found Dr. Katzen when we did. Things could have gone much worse. More

Body and Thigh Lift After Gastric Sleeve - I Feel So Confident - Dr. Timothy Katzen is the best surgeon, hands down! I lost 121 pounds through a gastric sleeve. My weight loss journey has been full of emotions, but when I met Dr. Katzen, he fully understood me. He's done so many weight loss patients and understands our needs and our bodies. I underwent the 360 circumferential body lift and a thigh lift. Not only did Dr. Katzen fully transform my body, but he also transformed my mental state. I feel so confident with myself for the first time in a very long long time. More

Abdomen is super tight, incision lines are clean & smooth & cute belly button - What an incredible surgeon Dr. Katzen is. Dr. Katzen did my tummy tuck and his care has me in tears. This man is so nice and an incredibly good surgeon. Dr. Katzen made my abdomen super tight and my incision lines are so clean and smooth. Dr. Katzen not only does a tummy tuck, but he sewed my rectus muscles together to create an hourglass figure for me. And guess what else is cool? He created a new belly button that is so cute! I feel so blessed that Dr. Katzen is my plastic surgeon. More

Best Friends Having Silicone Removal in Buttocks Together, then BBL - So many young people like myself fall victim to silicone injections. I was 21 years old when my best friend talked me into getting silicone injections into my butt. She and I both had it done and we both deeply regret it. We were living in fear that something bad was happening to us. We both had symptoms that were just downright scary, pain, redness, like a brain fog feeling, panic attacks, and more. It was a terrifying time when we read about other things that have happened to others who also had silicone injections. We both did our research to find the best surgeon to remove the silicone in our buttocks. We both agreed that Dr. Katzen was our top choice, after all, he performs silicone removals on a regular basis. Not only did we both have silicone removal from Dr. Katzen, we both later returned to him for BBL. Dr. Katzen is a gem! More

My thighs turned out beautiful and recovery was not as bad as what I thought it would be - I've gone through a few reconstructive plastic surgeries after bariatric surgery but somehow the thigh lift surgery was the one that made me the most nervous. I heard so many things from others in the weight loss forums that I belong to, that it made me have a second thought about having the thigh lift surgery. One day while I was in the forum to research some more, I found one of Dr. Katzen's patient who had muliple surgeries with him, including a thigh lift. She had nothing but great things to say about him. I made a phone consultation appointment to talk to Dr. Katzen, I live in Ohio. Prior to the phone appointment, the office had me fill out the paperwork and had me sent some pictures of my thighs. Dr. Katzen was able to mark the areas in the pictures and approximate how much skin and fat he can remove. He was so pleasant to talk to. I flew out a few days before surgery and met him in person. He was more amazing than ever which calmed my nerves. My thighs turned out beautiful and recovery was not as bad as what I thought it would be. Dr. Katzen gave many suggestions of what to do to prep for post op, and I followed his instructions carefully. Would I do this again? Yes, in a heartbeat! This thigh lift surgery has changed my life.

Brachioplasty with the best surgeon ever - my arms look amazing - My brachioplasty experience with Dr. Katzen was beyond what I expected from a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills. My expectations for my surgery were a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience and great outcomes. I got so much more than that. I got a surgeon who was the kindest human being you will ever meet. He also has this gift of making people feel safe and cared for. My arms look amazing.

A Plastic Surgeon You Can Trust - Dr. Katzen is a surgeon you can trust. Surgery is a major deal so I consulted with 4 plastic surgeons before meeting Dr. Katzen. I felt a warm feeling the minute I met Dr. Katzen and knew I would choose him to perform my body lift procedure. The way I was so relaxed around Dr. Katzen gave me comfort knowing he would be there for me throughout my body lift surgery and aftercare. I left a message with Dr. Katzen on one occasion and was so pleasantly surprised by how fast he called me back. He is a very busy man, so that made me feel good. More

Liposuction of abdomen with great results - recovery was smooth & normal - Dr. Timothy Katzen performed liposuction on my abdomen and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. My recovery was smooth and normal. Dr. Katzen treats his patients with kindness and respect, something I find rare in surgeons. Prior to meeting with Dr. Katzen, I consulted with two other surgeons and they treated me more like a number than a person. I am beyond grateful that I found Dr. Katzen and get to call him my surgeon. More

Silicone Removal from Buttocks then BBL Soon - There are so many people out there like myself who were not educated about the dangers of raw silicone injections. I made a horrible decision to get silicone injections in my butt because it was cheaper than getting a BBL. Boy, do I regret my decision. I experienced numerous problems that could have potentially gotten worse if I didn't have the silicone removed when I did. Thank goodness for surgeons like Dr. Katzen that don't judge you for the bad choices we made. He removed the silicone from my buttocks and I will be returning to him soon to have a BBL to do it the right way this time. More

Neck Lipo Made Me Look Younger and Slimmer. - I came to Dr. Katzen because my neck was bothering me. I had a fatty neck that never went away even after I lost weight. I thought Dr. Katzen would have said I needed a neck lift but he said neck liposuction would be a great plan for me. On the day of my final post-op visit, when Dr. Katzen did the final reveal and I've healed well, I literally cried. My neck looked so much better than I could have imagined. I look slimmer and younger instantly. Thank you so much, Dr. Katzen! More

My Body Shape Changed in Such a Good Way After Body Lift - Two months ago, I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen and I feel so good. During the body lift procedure, he removed 19 pounds of skin and fat in my abdomen. In addition, Dr. Katzen also sewed my rectus muscles and gave me an hourglass figure. He also created a new belly button which is so much cuter than the belly button I had before. I followed Dr. Katzen's instructions and healed so perfectly. My results were instant, I saw how different my body shape was. I cried happy tears when I saw how good I looked. More

Body Lift and Thigh Lift Done, Next is Breast Aug and Arm Lift - In 2020, I had RNY and successfully lost over 100 pounds. My quest to be healthy has been fulfilled, but I had to deal with loose skin that looked very unattractive. I was told about Dr. Katzen through an online bariatric support group. A few of his post-ops are in the group and they all had such kind things to say about him. I ended up having a body lift and thigh lift with Dr. Katzen and let me just say, these gals in the online forum have been angel sent. They provided me with the most amazing support after my surgery. They checked up on me and gave me some tips on how to recover well based on their own experiences. Of course, Dr. Katzen and his staff were great throughout the process but having extra support from others was pretty darn nice. I am having breast augmentation and arm lift next. I am definitely returning to Dr. Katzen this fall to have it done. More

I feel normal, beautiful, and whole again after my transformation - I met Dr. Katzen at a weight-loss conference in Las Vegas a few years back. He was one of the main speakers at the event. I remember sitting in the audience when he was presenting his talk which was full of before and after images. At this time, I had just undergone bariatric surgery. I was so intrigued by his work and followed him on all his social media. After a year of weight loss surgery, it was time for me to have a body lift. Of course, without hesitation, I booked a consultation with Dr. Katzen and finished my transformation. I feel normal, beautiful, and whole again. Dr. Katzen without a doubt is the most trusted surgeon specializing in weight loss patients. More

My abdomen and breast took a toll. It was not something I can go to the gym to work out, plus, honestly, I do not have the time with my busy schedule of working full time and taking care of 3 small children. I resorted to plastic surgery for some help. My best friend had surgery with Dr. Katzen so I knew of him and his work. I had a mommy makeover and couldn't be more happy with how it turned out. More

Body Lift Procedure Done with Perfection - I've spent the last year on Real Self researching for the right plastic surgeon to perform my 360 body lift procedure. I narrowed my choices to two surgeons. Both surgeons were located in the Los Angeles area where I live and both had great qualifications. I visited both surgeons in their offices for consultations, my choice was made easy. Dr. Katzen is very experienced with patients who have gone through massive weight loss and it was comforting to know that he did so many body lift procedures with amazing results. He had books and books with before and after photos of his patients. The cherry on top was how amazing Dr. Katzen is as a person. He doesn't talk down to you and has such a big heart. More

Body Lift, Thigh Lift, Arm Lift and Neck Lift....yes, I Had It All. - My weight loss journey started in 2020. The first two months after bariatric surgery, I already noticed my belly started to hang. I told my friends and family that I would need a tummy tuck for sure, but nothing else. Boy was I wrong! After 10 months, everything sagged; my breasts, arms, thighs, face. Dr. Katzen came to the rescue. I knew about him through my daughter's friend's mom. I ended up having a body lift, thigh lift, arm lift, and neck lift. These surgeries were done in stages. I haven't had my breasts done yet, maybe one day. I already had trust in Dr. Katzen because I felt like I already knew so much about him. Actually meeting him in person and going through the surgeries made me appreciate him so much. He is such a lifesaver. More

All the surgeons I consulted with were in Beverly Hills since that's where I live and there were plenty of surgeons to choose from with great qualifications.

He is just as qualified, if not more, but with a pleasant attitude. Win win for me! More

So glad I went with him - my abdomen is flat and I have an hourglass - Something I don't see many moms of twins talk about is how much our skin stretches after our pregnancy and how depressing that is. My twins are now two years old and I have tried so hard to get my body to bounce back but it's not happening. For my birthday this year, my husband's gift to me was a tummy tuck. My husband works at a hospital and heard of Dr. Katzen's high reputation and booked my consultation with him. When I met Dr. Katzen, my heart felt so happy. Dr. Katzen tugged my skin and said "this is how much I can remove from your abdomen". Those words were hopeful and joyful. Fast forward to surgery day. I felt nervous, but my husband was by my side and Dr. Katzen's calm demeanor helped. My abdomen is very flat and I have an hourglass figure as well. Dr. Katzen is fantastic. He lives up to the hype!

Dr. Timothy Katzen met all the criteria I was looking for and then some. I couldn't be more pleased to have met him and it felt right immediately.

Compassionate surgeon who specializes in body lift procedures - Quick background about me. I had Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and lost 138 pounds. The very top priority of things that needed to be done after weight loss was a 360 circumferential bodylift procedure. Body Lift is a pretty big surgery and I needed to take my time to find a surgeon I can trust and who has done many of these surgeries. Without a shadow of a doubt, Dr. Katzen was a solid option to perform my surgery but my husband insisted I needed to consult with a second plastic surgeon to compare. This other surgeon was a popular surgeon in Beverly Hills as well, but I was not comfortable with him whatsoever. He spoke to me in a way that made me uncomfortable and he did not have as many body lift cases as Dr. Katzen did, not even close. My husband and I confidently decided Dr. Katzen was doing my body lift and we have no regrets. Dr. Katzen's work shows for itself. There are hundreds of pictures of his body lift procedures on his website and here on Real Self. I am pretty certain, he'll be adding my pictures to his gallery as well. More

Wonderful job - my thighs have never looked so good and small - I've had two surgeries with Dr. Timothy Katzen, but today's review is for my medial thigh lift. Thigh lift surgery made me nervous because of how long the incision was going to be and the placement of the incisions. I knew this surgery was probably the rougher procedure to recover from between the two surgeries I had. To be transparent, the thigh lift surgery recovery was painful, but Dr. Katzen was so wonderful with prescribing me the pain meds I needed. I wore compression garments and was prepared with a recovery station at my house. My wonderful husband was also a great support during recovery. Dr. Katzen was amazing with the thigh lift surgery, my thighs have never looked so good and small. Dr. Katzen has one of the best bedside manners I have ever seen.....ever! He was kind to me and my husband every single time he had an encounter with us. He would spend time answering questions and never made us feel rushed. Dr. Katzen is just amazing all around.

Life changing arm lift after weight loss surgery - For those of you who have gone through weight loss surgery, you can relate to my issues. I had "bat arms" after losing so much weight. My arms were always getting rashes from rubbing against my skin. Finding tops that can fit me was horrible. I constantly wore long sleeves just to cover up my arms, even on hot days. When I had surgery with Dr. Katzen, my life changed. Most people take for granted how they can shop for clothes off the rack without any problems. I can finally do that, and it feels so good. I no longer deal with rashes and pain in my arms. I feel amazing. More

Entire Overhaul Makeover on my Body - Oh, how my life has changed so much in the last two years. First, I had bariatric surgery and lost a very significant amount of weight, over 150 pounds. I felt great and looked good in clothing, but what the world couldn't see under my clothes, was what I dreaded the most. My skin was comparable to a Shar Pei dog. It was saggy, loose, and super wrinkled. I turned to Dr. Timothy Katzen for a full-body overhaul. I had a body lift, thigh lift, vertical torsoplasty, breast lift, breast augmentation, arm lift, and neck lift. Of course, all that wasn't done in one round of surgery, I had them in different stages. All I can say is Dr. Katzen is an amazing surgeon! He's worked on many bariatric patients like myself so he is very good at what he does. Dr. Katzen is more than what you would find in a typical plastic surgeon. He's so kind, down-to-earth, easy to understand, and comes with an amazing staff. Highly highly recommend Dr. Katzen if you are looking for a plastic surgeon. More

My tummy tuck is so flat, I can bounce a quarter off my abs - I am in my mid 40's, gone through childbirth and I was ready to get my abs back to being small and cute again. I was tired of wearing baggy clothes due to my insecurities in my mid-section. I was referred to Dr. Katzen by my sweet sister-in-law. She has had some plastic surgeries done with him last year and was really pleased with Dr. Katzen and his work. When I met Dr. Katzen for the first time, I knew I did not have to search for another surgeon for comparison. Dr. Katzen is confident but still very kind and gentle. His bedside manner is top tier. As for my tummy tuck, it's so flat, I can bounce a quarter off my abs. More

Vaser lipo in abdomen 1 month post - perfected my abs - My experience with the VASER liposuction in the abdomen was excellent. I've always wanted this procedure but was holding out until the time was right. All I can say is, Dr. Katzen knows exactly what he is doing. He perfected my abs, it's out of this world. My only regret is, I wish I would have done this sooner. More

2 months post 360 circumferential body lift after 100lbs weight loss - My weight loss journey began a year and 8 months ago. I started off at 265 pounds, had bariatric surgery, and lost 100 pounds. Finding Dr. Katzen was a no brainer. He is the top surgeon for reconstructive surgeries after weight loss. I live in PA but happily traveled to California for my 360 circumferential body lift. I was able to do most things over the phone prior to my surgery. I had the surgery in California and stayed in town for about 2 weeks. Dr. Katzen checked on me daily and made me feel really special and cared for. My friends asked me if it was worth traveling to California for this procedure with Dr. Katzen and my response is "absolutely yes"! More

I only needed to take off 2 days of actual work and the rest, I was able to work remotely, which was so nice! Plus, I have a very cool boss that allowed me to do this.

Even after the weight loss, I felt fat due to my excess skin - I lost 145 pounds with a duodenal switch procedure two years ago. This may sound crazy, but even after the weight loss, I felt fat due to my excess skin all over my body. My wrinkly skin was something I couldn't hide and it was a constant reminder of my former obese body. Thank goodness I found Dr. Katzen who helped me with reconstructing my body. My first procedure with him was a body lift and thigh lift. After 8 weeks of recovery, I felt good enough to come back for an arm lift and breast augmentation/lift. Dr. Katzen is the surgeon for what I needed. He's worked on many weight loss patients and understands our needs and wants. Oh! And his credentials are very impressive! More

Thigh Lift, Preparation is Key to a Successful Recovery - I've had two separate surgeries with Dr. Katzen, but I am going to review the most recent procedure I had, which is a medial thigh lift. I was nervous going in for the thigh lift procedure because everyone said this is a tough surgery and recovery is no fun. Well, they are kinda right. Compared to other surgeries I went through, the thigh lift was the most difficult, but if you prepare properly, recovery is a lot easier. Dr. Katzen gave me a list of things I can do prior to surgery to help ease the recovery process. Basically, I set up a "recovery station" next to my recliner where everything is within arms reach. I also had meals prepared in my freezer and protein drinks at hand. I was lucky enough to have my daughter help me the first-week post op, so I didn't have to move around so much. Overall, it wasn't so bad. The results of my thigh lift are beyond amazing, I would do it all in a heartbeat again if I had to. More

Feeling Young and Vibrant Again After Mommy Makeover Procedure. - A little background about myself: I'm 45, mom of 3. Before becoming a mom, I worked out and took really good care of myself. After 3 kids and a demanding career, my body took a back seat and it showed. I started to feel like I was in the slumps all the time, my body image made me sad. I consulted with 4 plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills and the Los Angeles area. Dr. Katzen was the last of the 4 surgeons I saw and I left his office feeling relieved and knew I found the right surgeon to perform the mommy makeover on me. I had a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. I cannot believe how my body looks right now. I feel young, vibrant, and full of life. This procedure was exactly what I needed to boost myself. More

Beautiful Tummy Tuck Results - Tummy tuck surgery is common and I felt comfortable going in for surgery. The thing that some people don't realize is, pretty much any surgeon can perform tummy tuck surgery. When I was considering this surgery, I saw many ads advertising cheap tummy tuck procedures. I did research on some of these places and quite frankly got concerned. When I found Dr. Katzen and did a consultation with him, I felt relieved. Sure, his prices weren't the cheapest but it was fair and reasonable. What sold me on Dr. Katzen: 1. He's board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. 2. He's done thousands of plastic surgery procedures with over 20 years of experience. 3. Dr. Katzen is genuine, honest, kind, and caring. There are so many other positive things I can say about Dr. Katzen, but I am so glad I chose him for my tummy tuck procedure. He did a beautiful job and I am very satisfied with the results. More

Dr. Katzen is Beyond Wonderful! - I normally don't write reviews but I feel like my experience was so amazing that it deserves a review and can help someone. I lost over a hundred pounds with the help of bariatric surgery. My friends and family all complimented me on the weight loss and always told me how great I looked. Little did they know under my clothes were awful saggy and wrinkled skin. Not only did my skin look bad, but I also had constant rashes and pain that required cream to treat. I spent many months researching for a plastic surgeon who had experience with weight loss patients. There were many in California, but Dr. Katzen stood out above the rest. He had so many resources such as his youtube channels, instagram, facebook, etc.... My favorite part was when I reached out to some of his patients via their social media platforms, they were so welcoming and friendly. They were honest about their surgical experience and spoke highly of Dr. Katzen and his office. I had my body lift procedure with Dr. Katzen and I am so glad I chose him. He does the surgery himself and follows up on the patients himself. I felt full support from him every step of the way. Dr. Katzen is a wonderful surgeon and I trust him completely. More

It was definitely worth the drive - In pursuit of bigger lips, I had some silicone injected into my lips by someone in San Diego many years ago. Although I originally liked how full my lips were, it became a huge problem and was dangerous to my health. When I googled silicone lip removal, Dr. Katzen's name came up on my top search and I remember how familiar his name was. My coworker went to him for a tummy tuck and loved him. Even though I live two hours from Dr. Katzen's office, I did not hesitate to drive to him for the procedure to have my silicone removed from my lips. It was definitely worth the drive, I would do it again in a heartbeat. More

Arm Lift, Beautiful Incisions - Arm Lift surgery felt like a necessity for me after I lost over 100 pounds. The excessive skin and fat I was left with in my arms after weight loss was extremely bothersome. I constantly had rashes and skin chaffing. Finding tops and dresses that can fit my arms was a task, usually ending in settling for a style I did not like or was not fashionable. I would never be caught dead in a short sleeve or tank top. Most of my tops were long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves. This last summer, I had an arm lift surgery with Dr. Katzen. He is by far the most genuine and sweet surgeon I have ever met. He gave me beautiful arms and my incision is placed where you wouldn't know I even had anything done. My incisions are nice and thin. Thanks Dr. Katzen and staff for the excellent care. More

SILICONE INJECTION REMOVALMy husband and I, reached out to Dr. Katzen for a second opinion after having silicone injection removal surgery with a different doctor in Los Angeles. Which ended up being the worse decision we ever made. I ended up with a horribly large dent on my right side of my buttock along with the surgery sites completely opened up leaving me with three very  large painful wounds that were never going to close up without another surgery. I was out of pocket $17,000 later for a complete failed botched job! I’m telling you this so that you really do your research before you go under the knife and lose your money and nothing gets repaired. Along with needing a second surgery like myself!Choosing Dr. Katzen, was the best decision I, have ever made! I, had my surgery with him about three weeks ago and still on the mend but I’m extremely happy with him and his staff. First of all, he is so easy to talk too and he genuinely cares about his patients. And his after care is 5 stars! He really knows exactly what he’s doing in this area of silicone injection removal. He reconstructed my butt along with removing all that poison in one surgery. I, honestly could not be happier with the end results! My butt is no longer black & blue and my skin looks great. And I can’t tell you enough how much I love the way my butt turned out as well. And most importantly, physically and mentally I really feel so much better now. If your looking for a surgeon that delivers amazing  results look no further and call Dr.Katzen, I highly recommend him! More

Silicone Removal to get rid of hydrogel shots - I had butt shots done 15 years ago and went 3 times and one fill in. I didn't have any real issues. My guy told me massage my butt so it would soften up and if i felt hard spot just keep massaging, so when I got knots I didn't think anything of it. I just massaged and they soften up. As time went on my butt got bigger and I thought the shots was a fat attracter since all my weight went to my butt and stomach. As some years go on I notice dents on the bottom of my butt, but it was nothing major. I paid it no mind, I also notice certain areas of my butt if hit hurt really bad so ass slapping was a no go. Sitting for long periods of time made me have to reposition mysef, still all of this I said no big deal. Fast forward Covid happens and I start noticing while I'm home larger dents and deformation on the lower part of my butt. While I'm home I'm scrolling on ig and I see the lady that thought my guy how to do the shots telling girls to get it removed. I immediately go to the comments and I see someone say I have hydrogel so I should be good (me thinking I have the same thing). The lady then replies baby its all the same. Red Flag went up that he used what she used. Month go by my right leg and arm would feel numb, I learned my WBC are low and doctors didn't know why since i am healthy. I started doing major research on here, spoke with a girl that just had surgery with Dr. Katzen and after speaking with her and keeping up with her recovery I was SOLD and I'm glad I went and got 90-95% out of me. I'm working on a lil documentary on this to show beginning to end surgery and all. Its so many women out here that don't know what to do, where to go, or who to talk to. I'm here for those of you that have questions. I see ppl being very concerned about the scar. At this point it's about your health and being alive. I just didn't want to be botched. Like I said I'm pleased and I'm only 3 weeks post op so I know I have a journey ahead and I may need a bbl, but will be later down the line. More

Body Overhaul After Weight Loss Surgery - To say Dr. Katzen is amazing is an understatement. When I had bariatric surgery, I connected with many other weight loss patients through different groups on social media. I followed many of their journeys of weight loss and plastic surgery after weight loss. One surgeon's name got mentioned quite often with positive testimonials....it was Dr. Timothy Katzen. His patients usually return for multiple surgeries with him and that says a ton about his work and values. I too had multiple surgeries with Dr. Katzen after losing over 100 pounds. The first stage of surgery was the circumferential body lift. I then returned for an arm lift, breast augmentation with lift, and torsoplasty. I am delighted with my choice to have surgery with Dr. Katzen. Everything felt right from the very beginning to the end. He's really the best. More

No matter how hard I tried, I could not get rid of the stubborn skin and some fat in my abdomen.

Dr. Katzen Was Always my Choice - When I had weight loss surgery, I was well prepared for excess skin as one of the problems I would face. I researched plastic surgeons as I was going through my weight loss and WITHOUT a doubt, Dr. Timothy Katzen was going to be my choice. He shares so much of himself and his work on many platforms. I was glued to his youtube channel. I found it fascinating watching his surgical footage. I felt confident putting my life in his hands. Dr. Katzen performed a circumferential body lift on me and I am extremely pleased. He removed a total of 18 pounds of excess skin, fat, and tissue. Thank you Dr. Katzen for transforming my body and mind. More

2 Stage Surgeries with Dr. Katzen After Weight Loss Journey - I got sleeved and lost 139 pounds. I felt good and healthy but I couldn't stand the sight of my wrinkled-up skin. I had so much skin on my abdomen, arms, thighs, breasts, and butt. I'm 44 years old, but my skin was so wrinkly, it looks like a 90-year-old's skin. I started the process of reconstructive plastic surgery with Dr. Katzen earlier this year, and now I feel complete.The first surgery I had done with Dr. Katzen was the circumferential body lift and thigh lift. The second surgery was breast augmentation with lift and arm lift.Dr. Katzen is truly gifted and his expertise shows. He's done hundreds, maybe even thousands of reconstructive procedures on weight loss patients so he is really good at it. I love that he shares so many of the before and after pictures on his website. I am happy to have Dr. Katzen complete my weight loss journey and make me feel complete and whole again. More

Great Changes Happening After Tummy Tuck and Breast Lift - I have 4 kids and 2 grandkids. I'm not a youngster anymore but I've been a widow for a very very long time. I felt it was time to do a little nip tuck to boost my body. I went to Dr. Katzen in Beverly Hills and got a tummy tuck and breast lift. I had imagined after the procedures, it would make me more confident. Not only did that happen, but all of a sudden I have some major life changes coming up....all good things. So excited to see where all this takes me. It's so much more than I had hoped for. More

Lower Body Lift and Breast Lift After Weight Loss - When researching doctors I wanted a doctor who was experienced with lower body lift and weight loss patients. Dr. Katzen is highly specialized with this procedure and population. I also had a breast lift and augmentation. Plastic surgery is hard. Be prepared. Dr. Katzen is super safe and at first you may ask why do I have to do this or that? Do it. There’s a rationale for it all. He’s goal is the safest recovery for you and you will have a better experience if you follow his orders. My post op visits left me feeling good. He has such a great bedside manner. You don’t feel rushed and he makes you feel at ease. He’s such a humble man too. He put my shoes on and he talked to me and my husband about Netflix series. His office staff is responsive and kind. I’m still healing but I think I’m feeling as good as can be for these procedures. More

My breasts still hurt so I’m hoping that goes away. One nipple is higher than the other and I don’t think it’s a matter of one breast dropping. It almost looks like my nipple was put back on upside down. So I dont think my nipples were done correctly. I’ll post an update if they correct themselves. My lower body lift is my favorite thing, however I did get two wounds and I’m seeing a wound care doctor in my city. Getting wounds such and I still have stitches in that have to be cut as they push their way out of my body. I’m not sure why my photos won’t upload. More

Birthday Present for Myself Was a Tummy Tuck and Thigh Lift. - Never in my wildest dream could I have imagined the body I have now. I just turned 40 years old last September. As a birthday gift to myself, I underwent a tummy tuck and thigh lift with the well-known surgeon, J Timothy Katzen, MD. I've known of Dr. Katzen and his reputation through many resources prior to meeting him. What I enjoyed is seeing his fun personality on videos on his Instagram, website, etc. Of course, his work is without a doubt, amazing. This was by far, the best birthday present I have ever received. More

Best Tummy Tuck Experience with Dr. Timothy Katzen. - I needed a referral for an abdominoplasty. A close friend of mine recommended Dr. Katzen in Beverly Hills, CA. The minute I heard Beverly Hills, I kinda backed off. The first thought was price is going to be high, the second thought is the surgeon will probably be snobby. My friend convinced me to just check Dr. Katzen out and if I didn't like him, I had nothing to lose. He currently only offers free consultations for Real Self users, so I took advantage of it. Boy, was I wrong. Dr. Katzen has the best personality and bedside manner. His prices were very reasonable and less than I expected. His work speaks for itself. You can find many of his patient's pictures on his social media and website. More

Dr. Katzen is an Expert in Reconstructing Post Weight Loss Patients - Do you ever look at yourself and feel sad because of all the abuse you put your body through? Three years ago, I had weight loss surgery and shed over 120 lbs. In certain clothes, I looked good. No one knew what was hiding underneath but me. I felt "abnormal" and my self-esteem was not good. One of the ladies in my weight loss group chat shared her journey and recently had a body lift with Dr. Katzen. She was so open to sharing her pictures and experiences. I private messaged her and asked her a ton of questions, so was very generous in giving her time to me. She gave me the boost I needed to move forward with my own body lift surgery. I had my body lift with Dr. J Timothy Katzen. He's so amazing in all he does, from his gentle kind persona to his absolutely fabulous skills as a surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Katzen to anyone who is looking to have surgery after weight loss surgery. He's an expert in that field. More

360 body lift has changed mylife - After a mini-gastric bypass and losing 120 lbs back in 2008, I was left wi a lot of lose skin around my belly. It made my clothes fit funny and I always tries to hide the lose belly skin. After a lot of research I found Dr. Katzen and connected with him in October of 2020. My surgery was scheduled for Jan of 2021. Two weeks in recover with controlled pain and a lot of Netflix and drugs I flew home to seattle.

I am so pleased with the results working out and feeling great in my new body. Wearing pants that are down from a 38 waist to a 34. I am so pleased with where I am at 4 months. Still get a little swollen in the evenings but I talk I feel great. Still numb all round the incision it's. More

Super Happy with Tummy Tuck Results! - As a child, I was known and teased as a "fat kid". I grew up being overweight most of my teen and early adult years. I enrolled myself in a gym to help me lose weight. My body adjusted pretty well for the most part, except the abdomen area. I couldn't quite get a flat stomach and my skin was wrinkly in my abdomen area. I came to Dr. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills for a tummy tuck. It was a quick outpatient surgery and I went home the same day. Sometimes it's ok to get a little extra help from a plastic surgeon to get your body where you want. I am super happy with my results!

Silicone injection removal from Buttock - Dr. Katzen and his team were amazing from the start. Unfortunately I had silicone injections about 8 years ago and overtime I started to have lumps in my butt that became hard like a marble. I also had pain in my butt that ran down my legs. After doing extensive research I came upon Dr. Katzen on RealSelf and then I started to follow him on Instagram. I admired his work and it took me about two years to get this procedure done because of finances and to get time off of work. I was in California for two weeks and I had my procedure done 5/6/21. Dr. Katzen went over everything he told me what to expect. He is very down to earth and honest. I had two JP drains a urinary Foley catheter. My mother was my caretaker (which I am utterly grateful for). I currently still have one JP drain because it still draining but I'm hoping that I'll be able to get it out by this Friday. However the drain is very easy to keep discreet. Kiara, his medical assistant was amazing by the way. She is helpful with the pre-operative and post operative procedure and helps with guidance. I had two follow up appointments before leaving California. Now I'm back home recovering trying to get used to my "new butt", It's definitely not easy & it's a process. However, I am very thankful for Dr. Katzen, his team and my support system. I am now looking forward & happy that I can move on with my life. More

Dr. Katzen is an Expert in Brachioplasty and So Much More. - Brachioplasty is what I had done with Dr. Timothy Katzen. My first reason for choosing him as my surgeon is because he is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeon. The second reason is that he is the only surgeon where I found over 100 patients' pictures of arm lifts on his website. The third reason is how his patients say such positive things about him and his work. Not that I needed more reasons, but everything else I saw, only confirmed I made the right decision. My brachioplasty is beautiful. My only regret is I wished I would have done it years ago. I am definitely adding new tops and tank tops to my closet, and I love it. More

Weight Loss Journey to Reconstructive Plastic Surgery with Dr. Katzen - My journey started in 2018 when I had bariatric surgery for weight loss. I lost a total of 165 pounds. With that, came excessive loose skin in many parts of my body. I joined a few weight loss groups on social media and quickly learned about Dr. Katzen and his work. Many of his patients had nothing but great things to say about their surgery and how nice Dr. Katzen is. Testimonials from his patients made me excited for my own surgeries that I was about to do. I ended up having a circumferential body lift and a thigh lift, and I couldn't tell you enough how happy I am. My life has changed so much already and I cannot wait to see what my future holds. More

Silicone Removal from Buttocks. Love my Surgeon. - I made a regretful decision many years when I had silicone injected into my buttocks. My decision back then was price-driven and not something I'm proud to admit. I wanted more volume in my buttocks and found someone that was going to do it for cheap. I ended up experiencing multiple problems. I searched on youtube to see if anyone else experienced similar things. I was elated when I found Dr. Katzen's videos about silicone removal. I scheduled an appointment with him and the rest was history. He performed silicone removal from my buttocks and I feel so good. Dr. Katzen is awesome. He has a kind and gentle personality, and easy to talk to. I plan to return to him this summer for a tummy tuck procedure. I wouldn't choose anyone else. He's great! More

Most of my extra skin was on my back so the typical procedure would have been the bra line back lift, which I was not interested in. Instead, Dr. Katzen was able to take the extra skin from my back and the little bit from my front with an incision from my arm pit to my hip bone on each side of my body. This appealed to me because it corrected both areas (front and back) and put the scars on the sides of my body, which are much less noticeable, in my opinion.I do recommend going back to see Dr. Katzen to have the stitches removed. I wasn't planning to because I live 1500 miles away, but I ended up having to and I'm very glad I did, so just plan on it.I definitely recommend Dr. Katzen for any procedure he provides! More

I scheduled 3 consultations with different plastic surgeons. I always asked if I can see some results of their work. Two of the surgeons only produced less than 10 patients that they operated a thigh lift on. Dr. Katzen was the only one who showed me hundreds of thigh lift pictures. My choice was clear. I chose Dr. Katzen and I do not regret it a single bit. My advice is to check out multiple surgeons before you decide to book your surgery. I'm so glad I did.  More

Dr. Timothy Katzen is a solid 5 star! - I feel like I've hit the jackpot when it comes to finding the most amazing surgeon ever! I was in need (not want) of a medial thigh lift. I had gastric sleeve and lost 158 pounds. Although I lost weight, the excess skin between my thighs was unbearable. My thighs were rubbing together which caused painful rashes. As much as I used creams and powder, the rashes persisted. It was hard finding an experienced plastic surgeon who performed thigh lifts. Yes, there were other surgeons who I consulted with, but when I asked for before and after pictures, they only had a few to show me. Dr. Katzen had hundreds of pictures he provided, many on his website as well. No surprise, my thigh lift turned out excellent. Oh, he also offers free virtual consultations during this pandemic.

He's smart, has the kindest heart, technically skilled, well trained, what more can one ask for. I had an arm lift with Dr. Katzen 6 months ago. My incision is placed in the inner part of my arms so it's hidden well. No one really sees it unless I raise my arm. Based on pictures I've seen in his office, that arm incision heals very well. For some of his patients, you don't even see the scar anymore after they've completely healed. Solid 5 out 5. More

Found my Surgeon After Researching on Real Self. - You all. Let me tell you how amazing Dr. Katzen is. I needed an arm lift and didn't know where to start. Real Self's website was at the top of my search. I was so impressed with so much information presented on this website. I spent many days reading reviews, watching videos, looking at before and after pictures, and looking at how the surgeons answer questions. Dr. Katzen came across as the most genuine and highly experienced surgeon. I did pick a second runner up surgeon, but after my initial consultation with Dr. Katzen, I did not feel the need to consult any further. My arm lift procedure turned out how I envisioned it would be. I was not surprised by how well my arms look. My advice is to spend the time to research your plastic surgeon carefully. I'm really glad I found Dr. Katzen. More

Recommend Dr. Katzen 100%! - Sometimes you bump into people and it was no accident. I was at a game before Covid happened. I sat next to this really sweet lady and we started doing small talk. Somehow the topic of weight loss came up and we both discovered we had lots in common. We both had WLS. I lost 122 pounds and she lost 146 pounds. During our chat, I asked if she had loose skin like me and what she did about it. She proceeded to tell me that she went to Dr. Timothy Katzen and had it taken cared of. She was so cute because she just couldn’t wait to tell me how wonderful he was and how wonderful her surgery turned out.I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen and my life has not been the same....in a very good way. Dr. Katzen exudes confidence in his work and it clearly shows. He's kind, gentle and very understanding. Would I recommend Dr. Katzen? Of course, 100%! More

500cc Oval Butt Implants + Tummy and Love Handle Lipo - I'll start by saying I am still in the midst of week 2 recovery, so I'll try to update this review as much as possible as I go along but I'm very low on energy and will right now. This recovery has been no joke and when I'm through with everything, I don't think I'll ever lay on my tummy ever again lolPrior to my surgery, I spent a lot of time choosing between Dr. Katzen and Dr. Ryan Stanton....

Great Results and Outcome for VASER Hi-Def Abdomen - Dr. Katzen's office takes good precautions during this covid pandemic, which I highly appreciate.After reviewing many surgeons' websites for VASER Hi-Definition of the Abdomen, I chose Dr. Katzen. He had so many good before and after photographs that were impressive, to say the least. I wanted to treat myself to an early Christmas present, so I underwent this VASER liposuction of the abdomen. It's the best present I've ever gotten for myself. Very happy with the results and outcome! More

I Had Body Lift, Thigh Lift, Arm Lift, Face and Neck Lift (Not All at Once) - What an adventure I have been on for the last two and a half years! First I had weight loss surgery, and got healthier and of course much slimmer. After losing so much weight, I was left with massive amounts of skin and fat. My body looked like a wrinkly 80-year-old body. I contemplated plastic surgery but kept talking myself out of it. I figured it was not a necessity. Over months' time, I felt more and more irritated with my body. I couldn’t fit into clothes properly, I looked old and I didn’t feel “normal”.I knew if I was going to have plastic reconstructive plastic surgery, it was going to be with the one and only Dr. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills. He dedicated most of his practice to weight loss patients just like me. I underwent a circumferential body lift, thigh lift, arm lift, face and neck lift (not all at once). All I ever wanted was to feel pretty and fit in with society’s norm. Dr. Katzen exceeded my expectations. I feel better than normal. I can wear tight clothing without any bulges showing. I can never imagine wearing the types of clothes I wear now with confidence.

I couldn't have ask for a better experience, it was just perfect! - What a friendly and knowledgeable office Dr. Katzen has!! All the girls that work for him are so friendly and always helpful. They never made me feel like I am bothering them. The best part of my tummy tuck with Dr. Katzen is him. Dr. Katzen is the most down-to-earth surgeon I have ever encountered. He has over 20 years of experience, specifically with weight loss patients and his work shows it. My tummy tuck is perfect, I couldn't ask for a better experience! More

Dr. Katzen lived up to his great reputation. - This will sound familiar to those who have gone through massive weight loss as I have. I have always had huge arms when I was obese. Naturally, my arms became saggy after I lost weight. There was no doubt in my mind that Dr. Katzen was going to do my arm lift. The day I found his website and saw over 100 patients' arm lift pictures, I felt confident about choosing him as my surgeon. Dr. Katzen lived up to his reputation. If it wasn't for the incisions that are well hidden inside my arms, you couldn't even tell I had arm surgery or that I ever had weight issues in my arms. Honestly, my arms look better than most females my age and I'm proud to show them in a tank top. More

Thank you so very much for everything! You are hands down the best - All my life I have struggled with my weight. I finally got to the perfect weight leaving behind loose skin that made me very insecure in my own body. I had my tummy and breasts done from another surgeon, but every time I would look in the mirror and see me thighs I would cry. I expressed my concern about my thighs to my surgeon and he said, Lipo would help! WRONG! The Lipo just made them worse, so I went on a mission to find a Dr. that specializes in Thigh lifts, well thanks to Instagram I found the Wonderful Dr. Katzen.I live about 8 hours away, so was a little nervous to call the office to set up my free consultation. I finally called and spoke to sweet Anna, I told her I was nervous because I live so far away. She told me many of Katzen's patients traveled in from all over, including Canada and even Australia so not to worry I was in good hands!I scheduled my consultation and of course after meeting with Dr. Katzen I booked my surgery for a thigh lift and a hip lift. I had my surgery in January. I'm absolutely so impressed by the way I was treated in every way possible. Dr. Katzen cares and takes care of you every step of the way, even post op he sees you at every appointment, he calls you to check in, he truly cares about your wellbeing. I also can't forget Kiera. Dr. Katzen's very compassionate, patient and knowledgeable Patient care coordinator. She was also with me every step of the way and was so very kind and very responsive with all of my crazy questions and or concerns.I just think she's the best! Last, but of course not least, my results are amazing!!! I'm only 5 weeks out and of course still have swelling, but oh my goodness!!!! My thighs are so tiny even swollen!!! I asked him for a thigh gap and I got it!!! Maybe I'll do my arms next! :) It will definitely be with Dr. Katzen. Thank you so very much for everything, you are hands down the best Dr I have ever met! Updated on 12 Jun 2020: More

My Arms Look Toned and Perfect After VASER Hi-Def Liposuction Procedure - I am in my late 20's and recently found out about a procedure that Dr. Katzen offers. It's called VASER Hi-Def Liposuction of the Arms. Basically, he used a VASER liposuction to sculpt my arms and gave me an athletic look. My arms look like I've been lifting weights for years, it's toned and perfect. I highly recommend Dr. Katzen if you are looking for any kind of plastic surgery. More

I Lost Weight and Got Healthier, but Dr. Katzen Transformed Me (BodyLift) - Quick background about me. I had weight loss surgery in 2018, lost 124 lbs. I was in desperate need of a body lift. Of course I was nervous about having reconstructive surgery and I kept telling myself I can live with the excessive loose skin. I was living a lie, I hated my loose skin. I couldn’t bare to look at myself in the mirror. Dr. Timothy Katzen and I discussed what I wanted and we formulated a plan for me. I had a 360 circumferential body lift which targeted my abdomen, hips, outer thighs, mons reduction and buttocks reduction. All this was accomplished through a long incision that went around my waist, kind of like a belt. Was the surgery worth it? 100% YES!!!!! The results were immediate and so satisfying. More

Tummy Tuck Increased Self Confidence for Me - I am 26 years old and I used to weigh 298 pounds before having gastric bypass surgery. I lost 144 pounds. Luckily for me, I did not have a lot of excess and saggy skin all over, probably due to my age and how elastic my skin was. I did have it bad in my abdomen area though. I decided to have a tummy tuck to remove the skin and fat. I cannot tell you how this has changed my life so much. Tummy tuck surgery helped me gain self-confidence. I feel much better about myself and my image. More

Thigh Lift Surgery with the BEST Surgeon I Could've Asked for - This pandemic has been challenging, but let me share my plastic surgery experience. I am happy to see some businesses start to operate again with safety precautions in place. I felt since I was stuck at home anyway, I should go ahead and book my thigh lift surgery. I was able to do my initial consultation on Skype. Dr. Katzen spent over half an hour with me to go over how he is keeping patients safe and what to expect for my thigh lift surgery. He proceeded to tell me I am a good candidate for the thigh lift.Fast forward to the day of surgery. Everything went well. The staff at the surgery center were all very friendly and made me feel safe and welcomed. You can tell they all love and admire Dr. Katzen just by how they talk and treat his patients.Not going to lie, the thigh lift hurts…..thank goodness for pain meds. I was told ahead of time to prepare a space at home to recover and meal prep ahead of time, which I did. My sister stayed for a few days with me and she was very helpful. It’s been two months since the surgery and I feel wonderful. I HAVE gaps between my thighs now!!!! What a great feeling that is. For once, my thighs are smooth and slender. Thank you so much Dr. Katzen for EVERYTHING. You are the BEST!!!! More

I got silicone "biopolymers" injected several years ago and got skin discoloration. I have seen many doctors who all made me feel hopeless and that I was going to be butchered open. I made myself a promise by the end of 2019 I was getting this out. I found Dr. Katzen off a referral. I saw Dr. Mir and did not feel he was a fit as well as Dr. Gallerani. I was only have skin discoloration no pain, illness or health issues.I booked with Dr. Katzen paying for the cut procedure as this would hold the operating room for a longer time. His staff was all extremely kind, helpful and responsive.I finally met Dr. Katzen and although I had already paid for the much more expensive cut open technique surgery, he said I was a candidate for lipo removal. I cried tears of joy. During the pre op he thoroughly listened to me and my concerns. As well as my friends concerns. He did not rush me and answered all my questions and never made me feel ashamed. I spoke with the anesthesiologist the night before. Everyone was so friendly and warm. I woke up from surgery with my friend by my side, helpful staff. I was in pain ... but duh I just had major surgery. Dr. Katzen came over and rubbed my arm and reassured me I was ok. Most surgeons are long gone by the time you're awake. They helped me arrange a transport ($400) that took my on the gurney in a Mercedes sprinter and brought me into my hotel room and put me in my bed. All friendly and caring.They called me the next day to check on me. Post op I was so upset saying I will always have discolored skin. Dr. Katzen said no! Q switched laser. All doctors all told me I was going to be botched and discolored for life. I don't know where Dr. Katzen came from, but I am so grateful I found him.Currently 2 weeks post op. Will update. And I am looking ot get a fat transfer in 6 months when allowed. More

BBL with Dr. Timothy Katzen - I underwent a Brazilian butt lift with Dr. Katzen in Beverly Hills. During this pandemic, he's been extra cautious with seeing limited patients in the office. There is usually only one patient in the office at a time. He also has his patients take a covid test before surgery and he himself takes them on a regular basis. I love the shape and size of my "new" buttocks. I was never able to wear leggings or work out pants before due to my flat butt. Now, I can fill them out and it looks good. More

Chance Meeting Lead to a Beautiful Tummy Tuck - Sometimes, life just falls into place when you least expect it. Last year, I was at Disneyland enjoying the day with my family. While we were in line for Peter Pan, I met this lovely lady and ended up chatting with her for a good 45 minutes (that's how long the line was). We chatted about everything and at one point I complimented her outfit. She proceeded to tell me how she was obese, lost weight and had a body lift. She told me about this wonderful plastic surgeon, Dr. Katzen. She said, don't worry, he's in Beverly Hills but his prices are very reasonable and he's down to earth. He also does great work. I've been thinking about a tummy tuck for a while, but just kind of kept it in the back of my mind. The next day, I said let me just look up this surgeon to check him out. I loved what I saw and booked a consultation and my tummy tuck. I am so happy I bumped into that lady and ended up with a flat and beautiful abdomen. More

I've been wanting a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift since the birth of my last child. During this covid pandemic, like most people, I've been working from home. I figured this was the best time for my procedures since I don't have to commute to my office and I can safely recover at home. Plus, my husband also works from home and he can help around the house while I recover. Dr. Katzen and his staff get tested for covid regularly and they take precautions to keep patients as safe as possible. I had my mommy makeover and felt pretty good afterward. Surprisingly, I only took a week off of work and was able to get back to working from home. My husband was very supportive and took care of the kids and meal preps.

I am currently recovering from a medial thigh lift procedure, three weeks post surgery. A bad liposuction procedure early In life left me with winkled skin in the front of my thighs to my knees. I am a fit person, and tried exercise to tone the appearance. I also tried expensive creams, light/radio based treatments, all with no results.Many times I researched having a thigh lift, but having already had a bad experience I was fearful. Add to that photos from thigh lifts gone wrong - torn sutures, infections- the prospect of a long and painful recovery - it all seemed too much risk.One day, something changed. I restarted my research, choosing Dr Katzen after a great consultation. I do not live in LA so there was distance coordination. Over the course of a few weeks, wonderful surgical coordinator Kierra patiently answered my endless questions & guided me through pre surgical medical requirements and testing. From the point of booking until now, I can’t help but feel surprised. I feel good. Have no torn incisions, no infection & no complications. Almost unbelievably- I expect I’ll be back to normal in three weeks. And my legs look GREAT - better than I ever dared to hope. Stating the obvious — this surgery is a big deal & choosing the right surgeon can not be overstated. Experience and skill matter. The day after surgery, at the care center, it was time for me to get out of bed and walk ten steps. I tried to stand and felt a stab of pain- my mind immediately fixing on panic - torn sutures and complications. I cried out and told the nurse nope, not getting up. She looked at me and said - you are not in any danger. I promise you. Your doctor is the very best. His stitching is the very best. I was at an independent care center, this nurse is not the doctor’s employee. Before I would leave, I would see the obvious professional respect held for Dr. Katzen. Saw that Dr. Katzen is the doctor chosen by other healthcare professionals. In closing, I would add a small bit about another aspect I personally appreciated. I’ve had a previous smaller surgery (lip lift) in Beverly Hills. It was fine, the result very good, but generally the experience felt tricky. I felt a bit self conscious, I’m not one for designer clothing, nor did I feel as polished as the staff or other patients. Whatever, the feeling was temporary. Going into my thigh lift, I expected that same atmosphere. A good & safe result- but being Beverly Hills- glossier than the real world. From the first appointment, I realized how wrong I was!Dr. Katzen and staff work incredibly hard- the people are genuine and the practice has heart. As it turned out - this did mattered a great deal. It’s a big surgery, sensing no judgment and feeling completely comfortable allowed me to focus on on healing. What a gift that was. Very sincerely, my deepest appreciation to Dr. Katzen, Kiara and team. I will add before and after photos after my six week mark. More

Reconstructive BBL with Dr. Katzen - After having the silicone removed out of my buttocks I decided to have a reconstructive Bbl with Dr Katzen. I chose him because my first experience with him (removal of silicone) was amazing. When seeing him for my consult Dr Katzen was very honest as to what he could and could not achieve with my bbl. Surgery date came and well once again he reassured me that I was In good hands. Let me say that my second surgery with this phenomenal Surgeon was simply amazing. He achieved what he promised with my reconstruction. Once again Kiara, Ana and Jane were just as attentive as the first surgery. I am happy with my results and if I decide to go for round 2 I would definitely chose Dr Katzen to perform it. Dr Katzen thank you once again I feel beautiful and healthy!!!! More

After having wls, I seeked Dr. Timothy Katzen for a 360 body lift. When I consulted with him, he said I didn't have too much saggy skin on my hips and back side. He recommended an extended tummy tuck instead. I love that he didn't try to over sell a bigger and unnecessary surgery. From that day, he gained my trust and respect. I admire his work and ethics very much. More

Dr. Katzen previously performed surgery on my aunt and friend so I already knew what to expect from his work. Don't let his Beverly Hills location scare you as far as price goes. His pricing is very fair and worth it. More

After losing 134 pounds from the gastric sleeve, my body looked like a total mess. I'm only 42 but the wrinkles and saggy skin made me look and feel like I was in my 90's. My first surgery with Dr. Katzen was a 360 circumferential body lift where he transformed me beyond my wildest dreams. I came back to Dr. Katzen for additional surgeries..... medial thigh lift, then arm lift, torsoplasty, and breast lift and augmentation. I am so pleased with how I look now. Not only do I look normal, but I also look better than I ever have my entire life. THANK YOU DR. KATZEN!!! More

My thigh lift was done by the one and only, Dr. Katzen. He definitely lived up to his reputation of being the best surgeon for a thigh lift. I was referred to Dr. Katzen by my bariatric surgeon and a colleague of mine. The love the feeling of being able to cross my legs, having no thigh gaps, no skin infections and no skin chaffing. This surgery has really changed my life. More

There are no words that can describe how grateful I am to Dr. Katzen. He is the first surgeon I met with the biggest heart and not judgmental. I am a weight loss patient with lots of skin issues. He can tell I was nervous during my consultation and made every effort to ease my tension. I had the following procedures with Dr. Katzen: body lift, thigh lift, liposuction, breast augmentation with lift, and arm lift. These were staged into 3 different surgeries. I look and feel like a different person. I have a new lease on life and I'm loving every moment of it. More

Let me start by sharing a little background about me. I had the gastric sleeve and lost 123 pounds. As with most weight loss surgery patients, I was left with a massive amount of hanging skin that does not go away with exercise. Dr. Katzen is known for his body lifts so I did not bother going anywhere else. Based on my research, he was well experienced and produced great results. I had my body lift 4 months ago and I am thrilled with how flat my abdomen is, my outer thighs are slimmer and smoother, my butt and hips looks so much better. My experience with Dr. Katzen has been nothing but fantastic. More

It took me a year to lose 130 pounds and during that time, I followed Dr. Katzen’s social media pages and connected with a few of his patients, they’re amazing.After maintaining my weight loss for three months, I had my 360 circumferential body lift.

I've had issues with my arm skin for quite a while now. If anyone else has this problem, you know how embarrassing and troublesome this issue is. Even when the weather is 100 degrees out, I still wore a long sleeve or a 3/4 sleeve to hide my "bat wings". I experienced rashes in my arms that became irritated and painful. Beginning of this year, I decided to have a brachioplasty procedure. Dr. Katzen is the best at what he does. More

It's hard finding a plastic surgeon who specializes in medial thigh lifts. I went to four different surgeons for consultations. They all said yes, they do thigh lifts but when I asked for before and after pictures of their patients, they were able to produce only a few. Dr. Katzen was the only surgeon who had an entire book of nothing but thigh lift pictures and of course the pictures were amazing. I had WLS in 2018 and lost 135 pounds. My thighs were saggy and ugly. After having the thigh lift with Dr. Katzen, my thighs look absolutely amazing. I'm able to wear jeans, tight pants, and skirts and look good in them now. More

All my life I have struggled with my weight. I finally got to the perfect weight leaving behind loose skin that made me very insecure in my own body. I had my tummy and breasts done from another surgeon, but every time I would look in the mirror and see me thighs I would cry. I expressed my concern about my thighs to my surgeon and he said, Lipo would help! WRONG! The Lipo just made them worse, so I went on a mission to find a Dr. that specializes in Thigh lifts, well thanks to Instagram I found the Wonderful Dr. Katzen.I live about 8 hours away, so was a little nervous to call the office to set up my free consultation. I finally called and spoke to sweet Anna, I told her I was nervous because I live so far away. She told me many of Katzen's patients traveled in from all over, including Canada and even Australia so not to worry I was in good hands!I scheduled my consultation and of course after meeting with Dr. Katzen I booked my surgery for a thigh lift and a hip lift. I had my surgery in January. I'm absolutely so impressed by the way I was treated in every way possible. Dr. Katzen cares and takes care of you every step of the way, even post op he sees you at every appointment, he calls you to check in, he truly cares about your wellbeing. I also can't forget Kiera. Dr. Katzen's very compassionate, patient and knowledgeable Patient care coordinator. She was also with me every step of the way and was so very kind and very responsive with all of my crazy questions and or concerns.I just think she's the best! Last, but of course not least, my results are amazing!!! I'm only 5 weeks out and of course still have swelling, but oh my goodness!!!! My thighs are so tiny even swollen!!! I asked him for a thigh gap and I got it!!! Maybe I'll do my arms next! :) It will definitely be with Dr. Katzen. Thank you so very much for everything, you are hands down the best Dr I have ever met! Updated on 12 Jun 2020: More

If I can give Dr. Katzen 100 star review I would, he deserves it. My entire life, I have never encountered a doctor that is kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, so good at what he does, funny, and amazing staff. Dr. Katzen goes the extra mile and made me feel special and cared for. He made sure all my questions were answered and never made me feel rushed or bothered. The fact that I have had three surgeries with Dr. Katzen says a lot. I would never think about going to another surgeon when I’ve found the perfect one.I had a circumferential bodylift, thigh lift, and arm lift (not all at once) with Dr. Katzen. My friends, co-workers, and family are all blown away at the results. They all say I look like a totally different person, a better version of myself. So grateful every single day for this new body and life. More

After weight loss, I thought I would need a body lift, but Dr. Katzen said all I needed was an extended tummy tuck. The extended tummy tuck incision does not go all the way in the back like a body lift incision would have been, which meant my recovery time and the pain was less. It also meant, less cost because OR time wasn't as long. I bring this up to show how caring Dr. Katzen is. He puts his patients' needs first and does whatever he thinks is right, he's not all about the money. I appreciate Dr. Katzen so much for his compassion and skills. More

I underwent RNY gastric bypass in 2017. With the weight loss, came massive amounts of sagging skin. I live in New York but I chose to travel to Beverly Hills, CA for my medial thigh lift. I had several consultations with local doctors but did not feel comfortable with any of them. When I did a skype consultation with Dr. Katzen, it just felt right and easy. Plus, I loved that his website had many thighs that looked just like mine, he clearly has done many of them. I flew to California the day before my surgery and stayed for two weeks.

The biggest shock came after I spent an entire year in the gym, changing my eating and lifestyle, only to face the disappointment of abdomen saggy skin. I lost an impressive amount of weight but my skin never bounced back. Partly it's due to being big most of my life and my age. Regardless, it was still discouraging and a bit depressing.

I was warned about the excessive skin after weight loss so I had already been searching for a surgeon who specializes in reconstructive plastic surgeries. It didn't take long to find Dr. Timothy Katzen. I have had two stages of surgeries with Dr. Katzen. First was the 360 circumferential body lift. After 8 weeks, I went back to Dr. Katzen for an inner thigh lift. I plan to come back for the last stage, which is breast augmentation and brachioplasty (done at the same time).

The results are beautiful. I love the shape and size of my new butt. Dr. Katzen and his office are just amazing! More

Extended Tummy Tuck and Gynecomastia Surgery After 140 Pound Weight Loss - I am a 47-year-old male who underwent gastric bypass surgery. I lost approximately 140 pounds. Like many patients, I experienced sagging excess skin in my abdomen along with other areas. My arms and thighs surprisingly was not horribly bad, I could live with it. The two areas that bothered me the most was my abdomen and chest area. I found Dr. Katzen and knew immediately, I can trust my life with him. I underwent an extended tummy tuck and gynecomastia surgery, both with excellent results. More

Thank you so very much for everything! You are hands down the best - All my life I have struggled with my weight. I finally got to the perfect weight leaving behind loose skin that made me very insecure in my own body. I had my tummy and breasts done from another surgeon, but every time I would look in the mirror and see me thighs I would cry. I expressed my concern about my thighs to my surgeon and he said, Lipo would help! WRONG! The Lipo just made them worse, so I went on a mission to find a Dr. that specializes in Thigh lifts, well thanks to Instagram I found the Wonderful Dr. Katzen.I live about 8 hours away, so was a little nervous to call the office to set up my free consultation. I finally called and spoke to sweet Anna, I told her I was nervous because I live so far away. She told me many of Katzen's patients traveled in from all over, including Canada and even Australia so not to worry I was in good hands!I scheduled my consultation and of course after meeting with Dr. Katzen I booked my surgery for a thigh lift and a hip lift. I had my surgery in January. I'm absolutely so impressed by the way I was treated in every way possible. Dr. Katzen cares and takes care of you every step of the way, even post op he sees you at every appointment, he calls you to check in, he truly cares about your wellbeing. I also can't forget Kiera. Dr. Katzen's very compassionate, patient and knowledgeable Patient care coordinator. She was also with me every step of the way and was so very kind and very responsive with all of my crazy questions and or concerns.I just think she's the best! Last, but of course not least, my results are amazing!!! I'm only 5 weeks out and of course still have swelling, but oh my goodness!!!! My thighs are so tiny even swollen!!! I asked him for a thigh gap and I got it!!! Maybe I'll do my arms next! :) It will definitely be with Dr. Katzen. Thank you so very much for everything, you are hands down the best Dr I have ever met! More

Dr. Katzen Deserves 100 Star Review - If I can give Dr. Katzen 100 star review I would, he deserves it. My entire life, I have never encountered a doctor that is kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, so good at what he does, funny, and amazing staff. Dr. Katzen goes the extra mile and made me feel special and cared for. He made sure all my questions were answered and never made me feel rushed or bothered. The fact that I have had three surgeries with Dr. Katzen says a lot. I would never think about going to another surgeon when I’ve found the perfect one.I had a circumferential bodylift, thigh lift, and arm lift (not all at once) with Dr. Katzen. My friends, co-workers, and family are all blown away at the results. They all say I look like a totally different person, a better version of myself. So grateful every single day for this new body and life. More

Dr. Katzen is the Best (Extended Tummy Tuck) - After weight loss, I thought I would need a body lift, but Dr. Katzen said all I needed was an extended tummy tuck. The extended tummy tuck incision does not go all the way in the back like a body lift incision would have been, which meant my recovery time and the pain was less. It also meant, less cost because OR time wasn't as long. I bring this up to show how caring Dr. Katzen is. He puts his patients' needs first and does whatever he thinks is right, he's not all about the money. I appreciate Dr. Katzen so much for his compassion and skills. More

I myself had the gastric bypass procedure and lost over 100 pounds.

Dr. Katzen is the best at what he does. - I've had issues with my arm skin for quite a while now. If anyone else has this problem, you know how embarrassing and troublesome this issue is. Even when the weather is 100 degrees out, I still wore a long sleeve or a 3/4 sleeve to hide my "bat wings". I experienced rashes in my arms that became irritated and painful. Beginning of this year, I decided to have a brachioplasty procedure. Dr. Katzen is the best at what he does. More

Thigh Lift with a Surgeon Who is Highly Experienced. - It's hard finding a plastic surgeon who specializes in medial thigh lifts. I went to four different surgeons for consultations. They all said yes, they do thigh lifts but when I asked for before and after pictures of their patients, they were able to produce only a few. Dr. Katzen was the only surgeon who had an entire book of nothing but thigh lift pictures and of course the pictures were amazing. I had WLS in 2018 and lost 135 pounds. My thighs were saggy and ugly. After having the thigh lift with Dr. Katzen, my thighs look absolutely amazing. I'm able to wear jeans, tight pants, and skirts and look good in them now. More

Tummy Tuck with a Wonderful Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills. - The biggest shock came after I spent an entire year in the gym, changing my eating and lifestyle, only to face the disappointment of abdomen saggy skin. I lost an impressive amount of weight but my skin never bounced back. Partly it's due to being big most of my life and my age. Regardless, it was still discouraging and a bit depressing. I found Dr. Katzen on the web and knew I would have surgery with him. His credentials and work are top-notch. I had a tummy tuck and I just love my new abdomen so much! More

All my excess skin messed with my mind and got me feeling down all the time. I am 45 years old, but my wrinkly skin looked like I was 95. My co-worker went through pretty much the same thing I did and highly recommended Dr. Katzen for skin removal surgery. I had a body lift and medial thigh lift.

I got silicone "biopolymers" injected several years ago and got skin discoloration. I have seen many doctors who all made me feel hopeless and that I was going to be butchered open. I made myself a promise by the end of 2019 I was getting this out. I found Dr. Katzen off a referral. I saw Dr. Mir and did not feel he was a fit as well as Dr. Gallerani. I was only have skin discoloration no pain, illness or health issues.I booked with Dr. Katzen paying for the cut procedure as this would hold the operating room for a longer time. His staff was all extremely kind, helpful and responsive.I finally met Dr. Katzen and although I had already paid for the much more expensive cut open technique surgery, he said I was a candidate for lipo removal. I cried tears of joy. During the pre op he thoroughly listened to me and my concerns. As well as my friends concerns. He did not rush me and answered all my questions and never made me feel ashamed. I spoke with the anesthesiologist the night before. Everyone was so friendly and warm. I woke up from surgery with my friend by my side, helpful staff. I was in pain ... but duh I just had major surgery. Dr. Katzen came over and rubbed my arm and reassured me I was ok. Most surgeons are long gone by the time you're awake. They helped me arrange a transport ($400) that took my on the gurney in a Mercedes sprinter and brought me into my hotel room and put me in my bed. All friendly and caring.They called me the next day to check on me. Post op I was so upset saying I will always have discolored skin. Dr. Katzen said no! Q switched laser. All doctors all told me I was going to be botched and discolored for life. I don't know where Dr. Katzen came from, but I am so grateful I found him.Currently 2 weeks post op. Will update. And I am looking ot get a fat transfer in 6 months when allowed. More

I got liposuction on my stomach and a Brachioplasty! I’m happy with my results, and what makes it so much better that no matter how far of a distance you live, he will respond to your questions, concerns via email or phone immediately, which put me at ease! Or his staff will contact you, Belinda has been in the field for 5 years and she as well has put my mind at ease when I have concerns. Thank you Belinda for always listening to me :). He is a doctor who is busy but what stands out about him is that he makes sure his patients are his priority. I also want to say that I appreciate Dr. Katzen for waiting for me to see me past 5:00pm yesterday since my flight got delayed 3 hours! Thank you so much!

His bedside manner is so professional, I’ve never felt rushed at any of my appointments, he listens & cares! After having my procedure I feel so much younger & happier. Thank you Dr.Katzen for my new body, I’ve been given a second chance! More

Caring and Talented Doctor - I’ll start by saying I’m a nurse and can be picky with doctors. He is a great doctor. Super caring and communicative and great eye for aesthetics. I had tummy tuck and medial thigh lift. I had some complications with the medial thigh lift opening up a little but everything still healed up nicely. The scar is small and tidy even after opening and closing by secondary intention. I’m only 7 weeks post op so I still have a lot of work to do with my incision scars but he gave me a great shape. I’m happy. Updated on 10 Apr 2019: 7 weeks post op. Scar needs work work but the shape is great. The incision on my public area is from a tension suture but will fade. Im finally back st the gym. I will post pics of my thigh lift soon. These incisions took longer to heal so they are in a different stage of healing process. More

Awesome Thigh Lift - Thigh lift surgery is a pretty big surgery so I spent many months researching the right plastic surgeon who qualified to do this procedure on me. After consulting three of my top finds, Dr. Katzen was my top choice with the most experience and best results. I booked my thigh lift surgery and I am glad I did. My thighs have a gap and it's slim and smooth. I recommend Dr. Katzen if you are looking to get ypur thighs done. More

Traveled from NY to CA for my Medial Thigh Lift. - I underwent RNY gastric bypass in 2017. With the weight loss, came massive amounts of sagging skin. I live in New York but I chose to travel to Beverly Hills, CA for my medial thigh lift. I had several consultations with local doctors but did not feel comfortable with any of them. When I did a skype consultation with Dr. Katzen, it just felt right and easy. Plus, I loved that his website had many thighs that looked just like mine, he clearly has done many of them. I flew to California the day before my surgery and stayed for two weeks. The travel to California for my thigh lift was worth it, I wouldn't change a thing. More

This review is for Dr. Katzen and his team! Dr. Katzen is a doctor who you want to go to! I live in Oakland, Ca and I decided to get two procedures done with him (separately) and I don’t regret it! I got liposuction on my stomach and a Brachioplasty! I’m happy with my results, and what makes it so much better that no matter how far of a distance you live, he will respond to your questions, concerns via email or phone immediately, which put me at ease! Or his staff will contact you, Belinda has been in the field for 5 years and she as well has put my mind at ease when I have concerns. Thank you Belinda for always listening to me :). He is a doctor who is busy but what stands out about him is that he makes sure his patients are his priority. I also want to say that I appreciate Dr. Katzen for waiting for me to see me past 5:00pm yesterday since my flight got delayed 3 hours! Thank you so much! I believe a client should also take into consideration a doctors bedside manner when picking out a surgeon. I am so glad I chose Dr. Katzen to do all my procedures! More

VASER HI DEF LIPO OF ABDOMEN Helped Me Land More Acting Jobs. - Let's face it. We live in a society where people judge our looks. I happen to be an actor who is getting started in the industry. I needed to fit a certain mold to land the jobs. I have no shame going to Dr. Katzen to enhance my looks. Dr. Katzen did a VASER HI DEF liposuction on my abdomen and the results are unbelievable. He gave me the look of a six-pack abdomen. I feel more confident about myself and I don't think it's coincidence that I am landing more jobs. More

360 body lift by the best surgeon! - One of the very first surgery that changed my life was the gastric bypass. It helped me lose 146 pounds and became a healthier person. The second life changing surgery for me was the 360 body lift performed by Dr. Katzen. Dr. Katzen removed 15 pounds of extra skin and fat, mainly in my abdomen area. The body lift gave immediate results. My abdomen was flat, hips, butt and thighs all got smaller and smoother. I am so grateful for the wonderful care I received from Dr. Katzen. He's the best. More

Amazing Surgeon! - I got two procedures done with Dr. Katzen! I got liposuction on my stomach and a Brachioplasty two months ago! I’m loving my results and I thank him for listening to me and being 100 percent honest with me all the way! He is very caring and patient, even though the waiting room might be full of people waiting to see him, he does takes his time to answer your questions / concerns! I live in Oakland, Ca and at first I was a little skeptical about doing such procedure due to distance but honestly it has been smooth! He responds so quickly via email or telephone NO MATTER what day it is! So if you are considering doing a procedure out of state, you are in good hands! His staff is so welcoming and very accommodating. More importantly for clients who are only fluent in Spanish and want to get this procedure, he has staff who are bilingual and the doctor will also try his best to speak it!

Extremely Grateful - To find a surgeon who is at the top of their game, but also a down to earth decent human being is a rarity. Dr. Katzen is such surgeon. I had a 360 body lift and medial thigh lift after massive weight loss. I truly felt he cared about me and was available for any questions or concerns I had. The work he does in the operating room is that of an artist. I truly believe he sculpted an amazing work out of a mess of clay. Healing takes time, but his encouragement and that of his staff is fantastic. I do plan on at least one more procedure and feel extremely blessed to have confidence in Dr. Katzen and his staff. More

Traveled from Utah to Las Vegas to Have Tummy Tuck with Dr. Katzen - I live in Utah so when I found out Dr. Katzen had an office in Las Vegas, I was excited it was going to be a short drive to see him. I needed a tummy tuck and his tummy tuck work that I've seen online has been excellent. The day I met Dr. Katzen, I had zero doubt in my mind he was going to be my surgeon.

When I first considered weight loss surgery, I was required to attend a meeting where they talked about all aspects of surgery. One of the topics covered the flabby excess skin after weight loss. I was well prepared for it and dealt with great information. Dr. Katzen had done surgeries on quite a few ladies in my meeting. They all said beautiful things about him and they all looked great. I ended up needing a body lift and thigh lift. I chose Dr. Katzen for myself and I am really glad I did. He removed 17 pounds of fat and skin during surgery and tightened my abdomen and thighs really good. Dr. Katzen is a true expert with weight loss patients. It shows in his work. More

I live in San Diego, California but drove over 2 hours to find the best plastic surgeon who is highly experienced with reconstructive surgery for weight loss patients. He has thousands of before and after pictures of his patients on his website and office.

Gastric bypass saved my life. My health was down spiraling three years ago, I had to do something to become healthier. It was a daily struggle. After a year and 2 months, I lost a total of 152 pounds and the healthiest I’ve been in ages. I expected some excess skin but my body was wrinkled worse than a 100-year old woman, much worse! I felt depressed knowing I went through life-changing surgery and still not happy with my life. I attended a weight loss surgery conference and met Dr. Katzen. I admired his before and after pictures and spoke with him and his patients quite extensively. Before leaving the conference, I told him I would be booking my 360 body lift surgery with him. Within three months of meeting him, I was on the OR table. He removed 24 pounds of excess skin and fat from the mid section. My stomach is flat and he created a beautiful hour glass figure I didn’t know I had. From the same incision, he pulled the skin of my outer thighs and tightened it, gave me a butt lift and mons lift. I am blown away with the results. I am in tears as I am typing this review, he has completely changed me as a person, both physically and mentally. Dr. Katzen is my hero! More

I was so excited and proud of myself that I can finally fit into size 7 jeans (baggy jeans) after losing 100 lbs. My daughter tells me I needed to stop wearing baggy jeans because I looked fat, I didn't know how to shop for my new body. I asked my daughter to go shopping with me and I was left in tears. I tried on some form fitted jeans and couldn't fit my thighs through the legs. I had a tummy tuck before, so the excessive skin on my abdomen were resolved.

I had a problem fitting into button up shirts and certain tops due to my arms. My arms were huge, so when I wore certain tops, it made me look bigger than what I was. Sometimes, I would have to buy larger sizes, but the top would be too baggy on me. I would get glaring stares from strangers quite often. I discovered Dr. Katzen by accident while searching for something else on the internet. I saw hundreds of his before and after pictures of arm lifts, many look just like mine. The next day, I made my appointment and booked my surgery date. Wow, this is real, it was happening. I felt nervous but super excited at the same time. Surgery day, I met with the surgical team.

I had an extended tummy tuck with the hour glass tightening and the saddlebags removed. In addition, I had breast implants with breast lift. I just returned from vacation in Maui where I wore my first two piece swimsuit. More

My body has gone through so much and there’s much to tell. I was morbidly obese, had the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, lost 155 pounds and along the way, accumulated a lot of excess sagging skin. Fortunately for the world of technology, it was not hard to find Dr. Katzen. He clearly stood out as THE EXPERT for weight loss patients. I had the body lift and thigh lift with Dr. Katzen and wow oh wow, I never imagined my body can look so darn good after all it’s been through. This man is a miracle worker! More

There’s so much to say about Dr. Katzen, where do I start? He’s such a beautiful person inside out. He is humble, caring, has a big heart, and a perfectionist. I underwent a mini tummy tuck and it was smooth and simple. I arrived at the surgery center in the morning and home by early afternoon. Everything went well afterwards and my tummy looks amazing.

I started my search for a surgeon around 4 years ago. I had lost over 130+ lbs and wanted to remove the excess skin and fat that still remained. I had multiple surgeries performed by Dr. Katzen in March of 2018, as well as April of 2018. Wow is all I can say. I could not be happier with the entire process with Dr. Katzen! He is seriously the best surgeon around and truly cares about his patients. My first surgery I had: an arm lift, breast augmentation and a tummy tuck. All three procedures went incredibly well and I was able to go straight home after waking up from surgery. About a month later, I had my thigh lift done. I had an incision from my inner knee to my groin on both legs. This surgery was a bit more intense so I ended up staying in the recovery center for a couple days that he recommended. The entire experience I would do over again in a heartbeat. Dr. Katzen and his amazing team are there for you throughout the entire process. If you are in the process of finding a surgeon, do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with him. You will not be disappointed. More

I’ll start by saying I’m a nurse and can be picky with doctors. He is a great doctor. Super caring and communicative and great eye for aesthetics. I had tummy tuck and medial thigh lift. I had some complications with the medial thigh lift opening up a little but everything still healed up nicely. The scar is small and tidy even after opening and closing by secondary intention. I’m only 7 weeks post op so I still have a lot of work to do with my incision scars but he gave me a great shape. I’m happy.Updated on 10 Apr 2019:7 weeks post op. Scar needs work work but the shape is great. The incision on my public area is from a tension suture but will fade. Im finally back st the gym. I will post pics of my thigh lift soon. These incisions took longer to heal so they are in a different stage of healing process. More

I live in Phoenix, Arizona where it gets extremely hot. A little back story on me, I am a weight loss patient with lots of excessive skin on my arms. For a long time, I wore 3/4 sleeve shirts even when it goes above 100 degrees. I was sick on not being able to throw on a tank top on these type of days. Finally, I made a decision to have an arm lift. I've been following Dr. Katzen on Instagram. He is so friendly and funny with great surgical skills.

In 2016 I had gastric bypass surgery. I was browsing the internet when a show on TLC called “The Real Skinny” popped up. This show tells a story about a lovely gal, Sarah, and followed her story about reconstructive plastic surgery after weight loss. The interaction between her and Dr. Timothy Katzen was genuine and caring. Dr. Katzen definitely pulled on my heart strings how kind he was to help her. I had a connection with Sarah because I had the same struggles she did with her excess skin and all the problems associated with it. In 2018 I had my own body lift with Dr. Katzen. He is the same in person as he was on tv. I am ready for my next phase of surgery, medial thigh lift. Would not think of going anywhere else but Dr. Katzen. More

In January last year, I had surgery to lose weight. After 11 months, I lost 115 pounds. My bariatric surgeon did warn my about loose skin but I did not think I would be one to be bothered by it. Well, I was wrong. I asked my bariatric surgeon if he could recommend a plastic surgeon and he gave me 2 names. I made appointsments for both places and decided Dr. Katzen was a solid choice. I underwent a full body lift with stellar results. I am already scheduled for more surgeries with Dr. Katzen this fall. Next surgeries include arm lift and breast augmentation with lift. I cannot wait to be completely done with my body transformation. More

Dr. Katzen performed a Torsoplasty and lipo of both my arms on July. A second surgery will be a brachioplasty. I am a patient who does not live in the Los Angeles area, therefore i was skeptical about having surgery in Beverly Hills. I am so happy with the results and his good bedside manner. With any concern i had, he made sure to put me at ease--He will answer calls late at night, answer emails immediately. As a patient who is not from Los Angeles area, I appreciate it his responsiveness. I mean I appreciate him, completely! More importantly, Dr. Katzen is so patient, has a warm attitude and will not make you feel rushed, he will hear your needs regardless if he has a full room of patients waiting to see him in the waiting room. My mother who used to accompany me to see him even realizes his warm attitude and she does not even know English LOL. He is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! His staff, Karla and Belinda are two wonderful and sweet ladies who will try to answer all your questions and follow- up with you immediately. Thank you Dr. Katzen!! More

In a effort to complete my massive weight loss journey, I underwent a body lift then a brachioplasty. Prior to reconstructive surgery, the excessive skin interfered with my quality of life. I frequently had rashes, discomfort, and my skin got caught in zippers. Not only did it take a physical toll on me, it also affected me emotionally. Dr. Katzen changed me. He reconstructed my body and instantly changed the quality of my life. He’s beyond amazing. My sister who has lost a lot of weight is seeing him next month. I’m really excited for her transformation as well. More

I know my image is everything so I decided to get abdomen liposuction and breast implants. I searched “Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon” and was overwhelmed with all the options that popped up. I carefully researched the surgeons and felt completely comfortable with Dr. J. Timothy Katzen. What’s great about Dr. Katzen is, he shares tons of videos of the procedures he performs on his website, social media and Real Self. He also shares many stories of his post op patients saying how happy they are with him. I belong to his “happy patient” club now too.

Dr. Katzen is known for specializing in many procedures, but he is known internationally for the perfection of his body lifts. I’ve met two of his patients from other countries while in his lobby. I asked why they traveled so far for a body lift and they simply said he was the best at it. This gave me reassurance that I am in good hands. I lost about 200 pounds through gastric bypass. I was in dire need of a full body makeover. I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen and it completely changed my life. This was a big surgery and I am glad Dr. Katzen was in my corner the entire time. He and his staff were great at answering any questions I had, they never made me feel rushed or that I bothered them.

Last year I decided to embark on a life style change which includes counting calories and working out. I was proud of my 92 pounds weight loss. Because I carried my weight mostly in my stomach area, that became the problem area with sagging skin. Working out did not resolve that. I met a gym buddy that had a similar situation as I did and gave me a referral to a plastic surgeon. She herself had gone to him and she looks so good. At first meeting with Dr. Katzen, he made me feel welcomed and comfortable. He speaks in layman’s term, not doctor mumble jumbo. I had a tummy tuck and love my outcome. He tightened my abdomen and even gave me a nice waistline and belly button. Dr. Katzen is amazing from the start and throughout my follow ups. His bedside manner is remarkable. More

Being obese most of my adult years gave me low self esteem and a plethora of other problems. I’ve learned to live with it and being unhappy. I had avoided seeing my primary care physician for years, knowing it’s never good news. I feared seeing a doctor, but my sister pressured me to get a check up. She was supportive and went with me. My worst fear was true, I had diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. My doctor said my BMI was 43 and I needed to lose weight. I had bariatric surgery and lost a massive amount of weight in just 11 short months. The result of the weight loss left me with mounds of excess skin. Although on paper, I was becoming a healthier person, I felt discouraged. I looked wrinkly and bad. My sister had been by my side throughout my journey. She helped me find a plastic surgeon who could help me get rid of the excess skin. She went with me to my consultation with Dr. Katzen. We had a long list of questions, but Dr. Katzen answered them all without making us feel rushed. We knew before leaving his office that he was the one to reconstruct my body. I had the 360 body lift. How can a surgery change my life and my self esteem so much, but it did. I am forever grateful to my sister for sticking with me through my journey in life and to Dr. Katzen for his superb skills and kindness. More

I’ve been divorced for a year and wanted to start meeting people again. Online dating can be stressful and got me very anxious. To create a profile on these sites, they asked me to upload photos. I took some photos but immediately deleted them. My gut was sticking out and I hated it. I must have taken dozens of pictures and deleted them all. I figured I needed to make a drastic change in my image if I am going to put myself out there. I’m happy I found Dr. Katzen on Real Self and had a tummy tuck with him. He is genuine and good at what he does. After the swelling subsided, my tummy is flat and small, it looks so good. I find myself walking with a little more pep in my steps.

Finding a surgeon who has experience with medial thigh lift was no easy task.

The first four surgeons showed me a combined 10 before and after pictures.

He explained what he can do and I found an instant connection with him. I flew out to California, had my medial thigh lift, stayed in town for two weeks.

I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy in 2014 and lost 212 pounds. My highest "official" weight was 361 but I suspect I had gone even higher. When I got down to 149 I started looking for plastic surgeons to remove the excess skin I had. I interviewed four and found Dr. Katzen. I went to him because of his pioneering work with the 360 lower body lift. I had the procedure in July of 2017. Dr. Katzen removed 15 pounds of excess skin around my abdomen and buttocks. I am happy to say that I no longer knock things over with my behind anymore. I can squeeze through the tightest turnstiles. I can sit in airline and theater seats comfortably. I used to have to sit on the edge of theater seats because I couldn't fit between the arm rests. My only problem is, because I no longer have so much "padding" back there, I now sit much lower in my car and almost need a booster seat to see over the steering wheel! LOL! I no longer have the "apron" of extra skin below my abdomen which was uncomfortably hot and made hygiene difficult. I am so thankful to Dr. Katzen. I am very lucky to live only 60 miles away from his office. I have since gone to him for excess skin removal from my legs, and will be having one more surgery for excess skin removal from my arms. He is the only plastic surgeon I trust with this kind of work. He is a Godsend to all of us recovering bariatric surgery patients. Thank you, Dr. Katzen. More

The last 2 years has been life changing for me. I had the sleeve and lost over 130 pounds. I started to exercise and eat better. One of the best things about this transformation is meeting Dr. Katzen and having a thigh lift and body lift by him. More

I used to hate how flabby and flat my buttocks used to look. Clothes didn't look good on me. I used to buy longer tops to cover my butt. I went to Dr. Katzen for a Brazilian butt lift. The results are beautiful. I love the shape and size of my new butt. Dr. Katzen and his office are just amazing! More

Dr. Katzen is Lovely! - Gastric sleeve helped me get rid of 100 lbs. I felt healthy and great, even with the loose skin. I always boasted how the loose skin was my badge of honor. I joined a few weight loss groups on facebook where people share their pictures and stories of their weight loss journey. As months went on, I found myself getting jealous of all these pictures of tight skin after weight loss. I needed to look normal and not have to live with loose skin. One particular woman's facebook pictures and stories stood out more than the rest and she revealed she had surgery with Dr. Katzen. I made my consultation with Dr. Katzen and found him to be a lovely person and very compassionate towards weight loss patients. I had my 360 body lift and I told Dr. Katzen he was a miracle worker. He gave me a nice figure, better than what I imagined. More

Brazilian Butt Lift - I despised how horrible and flat my butt used to look. Many clothes looked bad on me; slacks, dress, bathing suits, rompers, and jeans. I underwent a Brazilian butt lift with Dr. Katzen. I love the shape and the overall look of my butt. My clothes fit me nicely now. More

Body Lift After 118 Pounds Weight Loss. - A quick background about myself: I’m 31 years old, had weight loss surgery in 2017, lost a total of 118 pounds. After weight loss, I found myself draped in excessive loose skin. It was a constant reminder of my previous obese years, something I longed to forget. I struggled with dating because so many men judged me on my appearance. I know I just haven’t met the right one. I’d seen Dr. Katzen on Instagram and began following him. His posts are intriguing, educational, and fun. After following him for 2 months, I decided to take up on his free consultation offer. The first visit with Dr. Katzen was a bit intimidating. His staff put me in the exam room and asked me to remove my clothes and put on a robe. Panic sets in, no one has seen me naked in a very long time! As soon as Dr. Katzen enters the room, he talks to me about surgery and goes over my history before he examined me. He instantly calmed my nerves and I felt comfortable with him. During the examination, he shows me the excess skin he planned to remove and showed me the possibilities on how I would look. Yes, yes, I signed up for a body lift and couldn’t wait to get on the schedule. Day of the surgery arrived and my nerves got the best of me. Dr. Katzen came to see me and marked me up. He held my hand and assured me everything will be fine and it’ll be over before I knew it. Again, he has a calmness about him that eased my nerves.Having the body lift was one of the best decisions I made. Dr. Katzen completely transformed my body and my being. I feel so good about myself, inside and out. More

Happy with Tummy Tuck and Breast Augmentation with Dr. Katzen - Who doesn’t need a little help by a plastic surgeon? I wasn’t shy telling my family about my plans to have a breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Instead of giving me gifts for my birthday and Christmas, I asked for money to go towards my surgery. They happily contributed. I chose the best surgeon money can buy. Dr. Katzen did my surgeries and it came out perfect. I am happy with Dr. Katzen, his office and his OR team. They are all great!

Entrusted Dr. Katzen with All my Surgeries. - I dealt with body image issues more so after my massive weight loss than when I was obese. All the saggy excess skin made me look and feel OLD. Even my face aged by at least 15-20 years. I had many surgeries with Dr. Katzen: body lift, mons reduction, arm lift, breast lift and aug, thigh lift and torsoplasty. My most recent surgery was a facelift and neck lift. It was also the most noticeable and gratifying surgery of them all. I always felt I was able to hide my body under my clothes but there was no hiding my face. I feel a complete transformation. Dr. Katzen played every part in reconstructing my body and I love every part of it. More

Dr. Katzen Was Supportive Throughout my Surgery Process. - After my tummy tuck, I was not able to walk straight. I was a bit hunched over with fear I might tear something if I straightened my back. Dr. Katzen said it’s normal because he tightened me a lot, but not to worry, I will straighten out soon. He was right, my tummy is so tight and so so flat! I walk perfectly normal with good posture now. It was nice to be reassured by my surgeon along the way to let me know not to panic when deep down, I was freaking out. Dr. Katzen was supportive throughout my process. More

Having lost over 250 lbs, I was left with an excessive amount of loose skin that required a great deal of reconstructive surgery. After consulting with 6 different cosmetic surgeons, I chose Dr. Katzen to perform my circumferential body lift and medial thigh lift, and I'm beyond thrilled with the results! So thrilled, I've already scheduled my brachioplasty and breast lift with implants. Dr. Katzen is not only an amazing surgeon who genuinely cares about the well-being of his patients, he's a true artist, as reflected in the before and after pictures which show his outstanding work. The care and compassion exhibited by Dr. Katzen and his entire staff is second to none and I can't recommend them enough. More

I was obese for most of my 20's and 30's. My health was not looking good. With the referral from my family doctor, I was able to have weight loss surgery and lost 135 pounds. I was warned about the excessive skin after weight loss so I had already been searching for a surgeon who specializes in reconstructive plastic surgeries. It didn't take long to find Dr. Timothy Katzen. I have had two stages of surgeries with Dr. Katzen. First was the 360 circumferential body lift. After 8 weeks, I went back to Dr. Katzen for an inner thigh lift. I plan to come back for the last stage, which is breast augmentation and brachioplasty (done at the same time). He's the best, I wouldn't have anyone else do my plastic reconstructive surgeries but him. More

Dr. Katzen removed not one, but two very persistent Plantar warts from my foot. The first was easily removed with a laser, but then, unfortunately, another one bloomed a month later. This one was more stubborn, requiring multiple laser treatments and freezing. Throughout the whole process, Dr. Katzen was patient, thorough and professional. My foot is now free of any warts and I can walk without any discomfort. Thank you, Dr. Katzen!I am adding to this review as Dr. Katzen performed liposuction on my abdominal area as well as my back and chin. I am happy to say that after a year, I am still loving my new body. I can wear a bikini again! More

Saw Dr. Katzen on a TV Special, He's Amazing. - In 2016 I had gastric bypass surgery. I was browsing the internet when a show on TLC called “The Real Skinny” popped up. This show tells a story about a lovely gal, Sarah, and followed her story about reconstructive plastic surgery after weight loss. The interaction between her and Dr. Timothy Katzen was genuine and caring. Dr. Katzen definitely pulled on my heart strings how kind he was to help her. I had a connection with Sarah because I had the same struggles she did with her excess skin and all the problems associated with it. In 2018 I had my own body lift with Dr. Katzen. He is the same in person as he was on tv. I am ready for my next phase of surgery, medial thigh lift. Would not think of going anywhere else but Dr. Katzen. More

I could not put off the removal of excess skin any longer. Dr. Katzen performed a 360 body lift on me where he excised my skin and fat, and tightened me up. After my body lift, I stayed at a recovery center (near his office) for one night. Dr. Katzen came by early the next morning to check on me and released me to go home. After a week, I came in for my post op check up. Dr. Katzen removed the bandages and I cried my eyes out. I could not believe how great my surgery turned out. More

Body lift with 19 pounds of excess skin and fat removed. - I had so much suffering throughout my life. I’ve eaten as a mechanism to deal with my depression. This lead to morbid obesity along with diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and chronic pain. To say I was miserable was an understatement. My doctor advised me to lose weight before my health got any worse. I had gastric bypass and lost 148 pounds. Things were looking good, I was off medications for diabetes, high blood pressure and no longer needed my sleep apnea machine. With weight loss, I anticipated loose skin and I had lots of it. I’ve known about Dr. Timothy Katzen and his work for a while now. I was confident he was going to do my post weight loss plastic surgeries. During consultation, he had me stand in front of a mirror to show me all the skin and fat he would excise. The idea of all that skin gone was something I only dreamt of. Well, my dream came true. I had a body lift, Dr. Katzen removed 19 pounds of excess skin and fat. With the body lift, I also had my lateral thighs lifted, mons lifted, butt and hips lifted. My stomach is flat and contoured. Wow, I have this new body that I appreciate so much now. I am coming back in three months for an arm and breast lift. More

Breast augmentation and lift after weight loss surgery - The first year after weight loss surgery, my weight was dropping at a rapid rate. One of the first things I noticed right away was my deflated saggy breasts. I used to have nice large breasts. Dr. Katzen usually recommends his patients to do the lower body (tummy tuck or body lift) first, but for me, my breasts bothered me the most. I had a breast augmentation with silicone implants along with a breast lift. My surgery was at 7 in the morning, I was in surgery over 3 hours, went home the same day. Pain was not bad at all and I healed just fine. I love how my breasts turned out, better than it has ever looked. Dr. Katzen knows I am coming back to do my lower body lift. See you soon doc! More

Already had body lift and medial thigh lift. Arm lift and breast augmentation this summer. - I met Dr. J. Timothy Katzen in 2017 at an Obesity Help Conference. There were four plastic surgeons at this event, they all offered free consultations on location. I consulted with Dr. Katzen and one other surgeon. Dr. Katzen made my decision easy for me, he is full of compassion towards bariatric patients like myself. He understands our struggles without judgment. More importantly, he had over 6 full albums of before and after pictures. I also met at least 10 of his very happy post op patients at this conference, this sealed the deal for me. I enjoyed talking to them about their personal experience. I underwent a body lift and medial thigh lift with Dr. Katzen and plan to have an arm lift and breast augmentation and lift this summer.

My arms were huge, so when I wore certain tops, it made me look bigger than what I was. Sometimes, I would have to buy larger sizes, but the top would be too baggy on me. I would get glaring stares from strangers quite often. I discovered Dr. Katzen by accident while searching for something else on the internet. I saw hundreds of his before and after pictures of arm lifts, many look just like mine. The next day, I made my appointment and booked my surgery date. Wow, this is real, it was happening. I felt nervous but super excited at the same time. Surgery day, I met with the surgical team. They are ALL so friendly, gentle and professional. The result: Wow! My arms are a.m.a.z.i.n.g!!!!! More

Family Did Not Want Me to Have Plastic Surgery but I Needed to Do It for Myself - I am a twin and always felt insecure because my sister was always a little prettier and fit than I was. Many of my family were against me having plastic surgery but I did it anyways because I wanted to feel better about myself. I had surgery with Dr. Timothy Katzen and I feel fabulous. He did a tummy tuck and breast implants. More

Body Makeover After Losing Half my Body Weight - Let me start by telling you my story. I was 296 lbs at my heaviest, then lost exactly half my body weight through weight loss surgery. No surprise, my body was covered in loose skin. I sought out Dr. Katzen who performed circumferential body lift, arm lift, breast augmentation with lift, and thigh lift. After all these surgeries, I thought I was done, but felt bothered with a flat butt. It actually hurts if I sit too long, I lost the fat in my buttock with the weight loss. I told Dr. Katzen I did not want a Kardashian butt, just give me enough for a nice rounded look. I had butt implants and I’m happy I did. It took some time to get used to it, but I adjusted well. Dr. Katzen rocks! More

Silicone injection removal by Dr. Katzen - I was young and stupid and got some injections in my butt by a questionable person. It was cheap and that should have been my first red flag. I didn’t bother asking for credentials or researched this person or the product they were using. Long story short, I ended up with so much much problems. I consulted with Dr. Katzen and he said he could remove them, thank goodness! Dr. Katzen is amazing all around, I highly recommend him. More

Had Surgery on Nov. 12th! - I felt truly ready to do this and man was I right to be nervous about the pain. Pain after surgery was a completely different level than any pain I had ever experienced but my team took care of it and took care of me. Dr.Katzen is a miracle worker. My HW 305 and at time of surgery I was at GW 180. Dr. Katzen removed 12 lbs of skin and fat from my legs and abdomen area. Dr. Katzen performed a tummy tuck with muscle repair, lipo and mons lift as well as a medial thigh lift extending beyond my Knee. I had expressed my desire to shape and contour my knees as they looked horrible to me. Dr. Katzen says he is ecstatic with how everything turned out and he knows I will love my legs and super flat tummy! As long as I take my pain meds on time, i am able to stay pretty comfortable. The itching is real so I have Benadryl to take now. My recovery has not been what I expected. I had expected to be up and moving in the hospital as I had a two day stay after my procedure. I had also expected to be up and around a little but at home but Dr’s orders are complete bed rest for five days!! I’ve never been on bed rest. I have always been up and moving as soon as possible but I’m following doctors orders because I know it all give me the best results. So Im in Bed with six drains and a catheter but feeling pretty comfortable! Post op appointment is on Tuesday and I’m hoping to get rid of some of the drains but they aren’t bothering me so it’s fine if not. I’m hoping to have some post op pics to post after Tuesday!! More

The Best Surgeon in Beverly Hills! - I started my search for a surgeon around 4 years ago. I had lost over 130+ lbs and wanted to remove the excess skin and fat that still remained. I had multiple surgeries performed by Dr. Katzen in March of 2018, as well as April of 2018. Wow is all I can say. I could not be happier with the entire process with Dr. Katzen! He is seriously the best surgeon around and truly cares about his patients. My first surgery I had: an arm lift, breast augmentation and a tummy tuck. All three procedures went incredibly well and I was able to go straight home after waking up from surgery. About a month later, I had my thigh lift done. I had an incision from my inner knee to my groin on both legs. This surgery was a bit more intense so I ended up staying in the recovery center for a couple days that he recommended. The entire experience I would do over again in a heartbeat. Dr. Katzen and his amazing team are there for you throughout the entire process. If you are in the process of finding a surgeon, do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with him. You will not be disappointed. More

I know my image is everything so I decided to get abdomen liposuction and breast implants. I searched “Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon” and was overwhelmed with all the options that popped up. I carefully researched the surgeons and felt completely comfortable with Dr. J. Timothy Katzen. What’s great about Dr. Katzen is, he shares tons of videos of the procedures he performs on his website, social media and Real Self. He also shares many stories of his post op patients saying how happy they are with him. I belong to his “happy patient” club now too. I hope my new body and new found confidence will help me in my career path. More

Dr. Katzen is no average surgeon - he is the best surgeon there is. - Last year I decided to embark on a life style change which includes counting calories and working out. I was proud of my 92 pounds weight loss. Because I carried my weight mostly in my stomach area, that became the problem area with sagging skin. Working out did not resolve that. I met a gym buddy that had a similar situation as I did and gave me a referral to a plastic surgeon. She herself had gone to him and she looks so good. At first meeting with Dr. Katzen, he made me feel welcomed and comfortable. He speaks in layman’s term, not doctor mumble jumbo. I had a tummy tuck and love my outcome. He tightened my abdomen and even gave me a nice waistline and belly button. Dr. Katzen is amazing from the start and throughout my follow ups. His bedside manner is remarkable. More

Dr. Katzen and his staff are the best! - Being obese most of my adult years gave me low self esteem and a plethora of other problems. I’ve learned to live with it and being unhappy. I had avoided seeing my primary care physician for years, knowing it’s never good news. I feared seeing a doctor, but my sister pressured me to get a check up. She was supportive and went with me. My worst fear was true, I had diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. My doctor said my BMI was 43 and I needed to lose weight. I had bariatric surgery and lost a massive amount of weight in just 11 short months. The result of the weight loss left me with mounds of excess skin. Although on paper, I was becoming a healthier person, I felt discouraged. I looked wrinkly and bad. My sister had been by my side throughout my journey. She helped me find a plastic surgeon who could help me get rid of the excess skin. She went with me to my consultation with Dr. Katzen. We had a long list of questions, but Dr. Katzen answered them all without making us feel rushed. We knew before leaving his office that he was the one to reconstruct my body. I had the 360 body lift. How can a surgery change my life and my self esteem so much, but it did. I am forever grateful to my sister for sticking with me through my journey in life and to Dr. Katzen for his superb skills and kindness. More

Dr. Katzen is genuine and a great surgeon. - I’ve been divorced for a year and wanted to start meeting people again. Online dating can be stressful and got me very anxious. To create a profile on these sites, they asked me to upload photos. I took some photos but immediately deleted them. My gut was sticking out and I hated it. I must have taken dozens of pictures and deleted them all. I figured I needed to make a drastic change in my image if I am going to put myself out there. I’m happy I found Dr. Katzen on Real Self and had a tummy tuck with him. He is genuine and good at what he does. After the swelling subsided, my tummy is flat and small, it looks so good. I find myself walking with a little more pep in my steps. I have more confidence with how I present myself. I even dress differently. My first online date is this coming weekend. I’m excited and nervous at the same time. More

From Ohio, Medial Thigh Lift by an Expert Surgeon in Beverly Hills, California - Finding a surgeon who has experience with medial thigh lift was no easy task. I met with five surgeons and asked each one how many medial thigh lifts they had done and I wanted to see before and after pictures. The first four surgeons showed me a combined 10 before and after pictures. I was not going to settle.I live in Ohio, so I preferred to find a local surgeon, I didn't want to travel if I didn’t need to. When I found Dr. Katzen’s website, he had pages and pages of before and after pictures of thigh lifts.I scheduled a Skype consultation with Dr. Katzen, very happy he offered this (free of charge!). He explained what he can do and I found an instant connection with him. I flew out to California, had my medial thigh lift, stayed in town for two weeks. Everything looked great so Dr. Katzen cleared for me to fly back home. Once home, I was able to continue to connect with him and his office. They are great at getting back to me quickly. My thighs look wonderful. Dr. Katzen was worth the travel. More

I had several surgeries (not all at once) with Dr. Katzen: 360 body lift, inner thigh lift, arm lift and breast implants with lift. When I lost weight, my skin looked shriveled and old. My first surgery included the body lift and thigh lift. After four months, I returned for the arm lift and breast surgery. My body is normal and so much more.

Getting my body transformed. - In January last year, I had surgery to lose weight. After 11 months, I lost 115 pounds. My bariatric surgeon did warn my about loose skin but I did not think I would be one to be bothered by it. Well, I was wrong. I asked my bariatric surgeon if he could recommend a plastic surgeon and he gave me 2 names. I made appointsments for both places and decided Dr. Katzen was a solid choice. I underwent a full body lift with stellar results. I am already scheduled for more surgeries with Dr. Katzen this fall. Next surgeries include arm lift and breast augmentation with lift.

I had a good outcome - Dr. Katzen performed a Torsoplasty and lipo of both my arms on July. A second surgery will be a brachioplasty. I am a patient who does not live in the Los Angeles area, therefore i was skeptical about having surgery in Beverly Hills. I am so happy with the results and his good bedside manner. With any concern i had, he made sure to put me at ease--He will answer calls late at night, answer emails immediately. As a patient who is not from Los Angeles area, I appreciate it his responsiveness. I mean I appreciate him, completely! More importantly, Dr. Katzen is so patient, has a warm attitude and will not make you feel rushed, he will hear your needs regardless if he has a full room of patients waiting to see him in the waiting room. My mother who used to accompany me to see him even realizes his warm attitude and she does not even know English LOL. He is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Body Lift from a Trusted Surgeon. - Dr. Katzen is known for specializing in many procedures, but he is known internationally for the perfection of his body lifts. I’ve met two of his patients from other countries while in his lobby. I asked why they traveled so far for a body lift and they simply said he was the best at it. This gave me reassurance that I am in good hands. I lost about 200 pounds through gastric bypass. I was in dire need of a full body makeover. I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen and it completely changed my life. This was a big surgery and I am glad Dr. Katzen was in my corner the entire time. He and his staff were great at answering any questions I had, they never made me feel rushed or that I bothered them.

Once I met him, I immediately knew I no longer needed to search. I had the sleeve gastrectomy and lost 145 lbs. I was left with excessive amounts of skin, mostly in my abdomen, thighs and arms. It’s unconventional, but I decided my thighs bothered me the most, so I booked that surgery first. Dr. Katzen did an exceptional job on my thigh lift. Honestly, I didn’t expect anything less from him. He is beyond what you would expect from a top notch surgeon. Dr. Katzen is a very kind, humble and understanding man.

I Am So Thankful for Dr. Katzen!!!!! - I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy in 2014 and lost 212 pounds. My highest "official" weight was 361 but I suspect I had gone even higher. When I got down to 149 I started looking for plastic surgeons to remove the excess skin I had. I interviewed four and found Dr. Katzen. I went to him because of his pioneering work with the 360 lower body lift. I had the procedure in July of 2017. Dr. Katzen removed 15 pounds of excess skin around my abdomen and buttocks. I am happy to say that I no longer knock things over with my behind anymore. I can squeeze through the tightest turnstiles. I can sit in airline and theater seats comfortably. I used to have to sit on the edge of theater seats because I couldn't fit between the arm rests. My only problem is, because I no longer have so much "padding" back there, I now sit much lower in my car and almost need a booster seat to see over the steering wheel! LOL! I no longer have the "apron" of extra skin below my abdomen which was uncomfortably hot and made hygiene difficult. I am so thankful to Dr. Katzen. I am very lucky to live only 60 miles away from his office. I have since gone to him for excess skin removal from my legs, and will be having one more surgery for excess skin removal from my arms. He is the only plastic surgeon I trust with this kind of work. He is a Godsend to all of us recovering bariatric surgery patients. Thank you, Dr. Katzen. More

After 215 Lbs. Weight Loss, I Had a 360 Body Lift. Very Happy with my Results! - Here’s a little history about me. I’m 38 years old, was obese the last 10 years, until 2 years ago when my family did an intervention. I had the gastric sleeve and lost 215 lbs. I live in San Diego, California but drove over 2 hours to find the best plastic surgeon who is highly experienced with reconstructive surgery for weight loss patients. He has thousands of before and after pictures of his patients on his website and office. I found many patients who have lost a massive amount of weight like myself and saw how he shaped their new bodies. I wanted, no NEEDED that!

Dr. Katzen is my True Hero! - Gastric bypass saved my life. My health was down spiraling three years ago, I had to do something to become healthier. It was a daily struggle. After a year and 2 months, I lost a total of 152 pounds and the healthiest I’ve been in ages. I expected some excess skin but my body was wrinkled worse than a 100-year old woman, much worse! I felt depressed knowing I went through life-changing surgery and still not happy with my life. I attended a weight loss surgery conference and met Dr. Katzen. I admired his before and after pictures and spoke with him and his patients quite extensively. Before leaving the conference, I told him I would be booking my 360 body lift surgery with him. Within three months of meeting him, I was on the OR table. He removed 24 pounds of excess skin and fat from the mid section. My stomach is flat and he created a beautiful hour glass figure I didn’t know I had. From the same incision, he pulled the skin of my outer thighs and tightened it, gave me a butt lift and mons lift. I am blown away with the results. I am in tears as I am typing this review, he has completely changed me as a person, both physically and mentally. Dr. Katzen is my hero! More

Little "Pooch" Gone After Mini Tummy Tuck - I had a little “pooch” on my stomach that just wouldn’t go away. My friend recommended Dr. Katzen for a mini tummy tuck and I couldn’t be happier. The procedure was a quick outpatient procedure, I was in and out in a few hours. I had a speedy recovery and back to work in no time. My friends and family were surprised how fast I recovered. I’m 42 but my tummy looks like a 20 year olds tummy. I’m born and raised in Malibu, CA. Once I heal completely, I will be bikini shopping to show off Dr. Katzen’s work. More

My Arms Look Amazing After Brachioplasty - I went to Dr. Katzen for an arm lift. He's so amazing in every way. He's great at explaining the process so you can prepare yourself for surgery. I had a recovery center at my house and prepped everything ahead of time to make my post op experience as easy as possible. My arms look amazing, couldn't have asked for better results. More

Body Lift After 212 Pounds Weight Loss - I was gaining weight and was worried I would end up in a wheelchair. I needed to do something, if not, I wouldn't be around much longer. My top weight was 361 pounds and I successfully lost 212 pounds. With massive weight loss, tremendous amounts of excess skin was visible. Before Dr. Katzen, I saw four different surgeons. The more I researched, the more I realized, Dr. Katzen is the one. Dr. Katzen performed the 360 body lift on me and removed 15 pounds of excess skin and fat. I feel like a fairy princess that's been transformed. This is a dream come true. I love Dr. Katzen. More

Highest Weight 463 Pounds, Lost 233 Pounds. Had Circumferential Body Lift with Dr. Katzen. - I’m 24 years old, my highest weight was 463 pounds. I ate right, exercised and lost 233 pounds. I was always uncomfortable, I didn’t like the way I looked or felt, not being able to do certain things. With the amount of excess skin I had, people were always starring at me. I was always a social person but wasn’t comfortable with my body image. I am ready to be done with all this excess skin. I did my research and I felt 100% confident in Dr. Katzen. I had a circumferential body lift and breast reduction. Dr. Katzen removed 11 pounds of excess skin and fat. The number one thing I noticed is the way my clothes fit, it is so much better now. I love to jump rope, it’s great not having all the excess skin bouncing up and down. Sex is so much better now without all the hanging skin. I’m so glad I had the surgery. More

Male Tummy Tuck: I used to have a big gut on me. - I am a 37 year old male. I used to have a big gut on me. Although society seems to be more acceptable with a male gut, I was not okay with it. I seeked professional help with Dr. Katzen. Dr. Katzen did a terrific tummy tuck. I am definitely feeling more attractive. More

Arm Lift with Very Nice Incision. - My arm lift procedure was performed by J. Timothy Katzen, MD. I’m thrilled with how small my arms are now. I was worried about the incision but it’s not even noticeable unless I point it out to my family and friends. It’s hidden quite well. I have to tell you, Dr. Katzen is an outstanding artist with an eye for perfection. He’s also very nice and humble. Dr. Katzen, if you are reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart! More

Great Experience with Brazilian Butt Lift - For the last eighteen months, I’ve been contemplating having a brazilian butt lift. I found a couple of doctors I liked on Real Self and made appointments with both. They both were qualified and their prices were comparable. I ultimately decided to go with Dr. Katzen because I felt a better vibe with him. Dr. Katzen helped me achieve the look I dreamed of. So glad I had this brazilian butt lift procedure. More

Highly Recommend Dr. Katzen for VASER Liposuction of Abdomen and Arms - What a difference a VASER Hi Def Liposuction of the abdomen and arms make. My entire image is so different after surgery. I look stronger, my body looks defined, muscular, toned and fit. Dr. Katzen knows exactly what he is doing with that VASER machine. I highly recommend him if you are looking for VASER liposuction treatment. More

Body Lift by the Amazing Dr. Katzen - I had sagging skin in my mid section, thighs, breasts, and arms and mons area after losing 123 lbs. I saw Dr. Katzen on Instagram and loved his work and loved how his patients seem so happy. I went in for a consultation and loved how friendly Dr. Katzen and his staff are. They go above and beyond and made me feel at ease. My first surgery was the body lift and mons reduction. Once I completely heal, you'll see my pictures in his Instagram (I gladly gave him consent).

Mommy Makeover Got Me Feeling Young and Sexy Again. - My husband gave me some pretty good gifts since I’ve met him. He gave me the gift of marriage, children and so much more. The last gift I got was a mommy makeover, something I have been wanting so badly, so I can look good again for him and for myself. I decided to have surgery with Dr. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills, CA. The surgery was worth every penny. I feel so young and sexy again! More

Thigh Lift New Clothes :) - My review today is for my thigh lift procedure with Dr. Katzen, since it's the most recent surgery I had with him. Out of all the surgeries I had with Dr. Katzen, this one hurt the most. I will say, Dr. Katzen was understanding and managed my pain well. I am well healed and back to work. I picked up some new dresses and slim pants for my new wardrobe. I am definitely enjoying my new body. Thank you Dr. Katzen! More

Before Thigh Lift, my Thighs Were Not Able to Fit Through the Leg of Jeans. - I was so excited and proud of myself that I can finally fit into size 7 jeans (baggy jeans) after losing 100 lbs. My daughter tells me I needed to stop wearing baggy jeans because I looked fat, I didn't know how to shop for my new body. I asked my daughter to go shopping with me and I was left in tears. I tried on some form fitted jeans and couldn't fit my thighs through the legs. I had a tummy tuck before, so the excessive skin on my abdomen were resolved. I normally wear maxi dresses so my thighs were always well hidden. No amount of exercise can rid my big thighs so I turned to surgery. I found this amazing surgeon in Beverly Hills and he did an excellent job with my medial thigh lift. More

Caring and Talented Doctor - I’ll start by saying I’m a nurse and can be picky with doctors. He is a great doctor. Super caring and communicative and great eye for aesthetics. I had tummy tuck and medial thigh lift. I had some complications with the medial thigh lift opening up a little but everything still healed up nicely. The scar is small and tidy even after opening and closing by secondary intention. I’m only 7 weeks post op so I still have a lot of work to do with my incision scars but he gave me a great shape. I’m happy. More

Can Wear Tank Tops Now After Arm Lift - I live in Phoenix, Arizona where it gets extremely hot. A little back story on me, I am a weight loss patient with lots of excessive skin on my arms. For a long time, I wore 3/4 sleeve shirts even when it goes above 100 degrees. I was sick on not being able to throw on a tank top on these type of days. Finally, I made a decision to have an arm lift. I've been following Dr. Katzen on Instagram. He is so friendly and funny with great surgical skills. I drove to California for my surgery and so glad I did. He was worth the drive! I now own 10 tank tops in different colors and styles. More

My Thighs Look Amazing Now After Medial Thigh Lift Surgery. - I used to weigh 230 lbs. until I had the GS and lost 87 lbs. I was referred to Dr. Timothy Katzen by my mother in law, who had a positive experience with her surgery. My MIL turned out to be a great support person for me after my thigh lift. She helped me prepare for surgery as well as taking care of me post operatively. If you can get someone to help you after a thigh lift, I highly recommend it. My thighs look amazing now. I love the shape, the size and how it does not have ripples on them anymore. Dr. Katzen is the best! More

Tummy tuck 5 years after c-section - I am a mom of two boys, 5 and 7 years old. The thought of having plastic surgery has never crossed my mind until this last year. My youngest was born via c-section, the incision did something funky to my belly. I've been working out 5 days a week but I cannot tighten my abdomen. There's a flab below my belly button that is constant. I found Dr. Katzen on Real Self and went to him for a tummy tuck. He's an amazing person and did an amazing job on my tummy tuck. More

Brachioplasty - My experience with doctor Katzen was extraordinary. Each time I saw him, he treated me as though I was his one and only patient. He does not rush my visits and he does not make me feel silly for asking questions. I had a brachioplasty, couldn't be happier with the outcome. More

Followed Two of Dr. Katzen's Patients on Youtube and Facebook Before my Body Lift. - As I was going through my weight loss, I found two inspiring ladies on Youtube and Facebook. They both documented their journey from their weight loss surgeries to their plastic surgeries, offering helpful tips along the way. Coincidently, they both are patients of Dr. Katzen’s for the plastics and spoke so well of him. I reached out to both and became instant friends on social media (never met in person). One lives in Washington, the other one in Southern California. They were very generous with their time in answering questions for me. I went into surgery with Dr. Katzen with complete confidence, I knew I was in good hands. More

Healed Well with Great Body Lift Results - I live in Houston, Texas but insisted to my husband that I needed to have my body lift in California with Dr. Katzen. Dr. Katzen is very well respected in the weight loss community. He’s spent many years lecturing, educating and involved with weight loss patients. He also writes many articles about plastic reconstructive surgeries after massive weight loss. As you can tell, I have followed his work for quite some time. My husband agreed and we flew to California for my body lift. Yes, there were some travel inconveniences but it was completely worth it. Dr. Katzen is beyond kind and showed both myself and my husband so much love. The results of my body lift is unbelievable, Dr. Katzen removed 16 pounds of excess fat and skin from my abdomen. I can not grasp how good it looks. I am glad my husband was on board and supportive of my decision to have my body lift in California with Dr. Katzen. More

A New Body and a New Me - I had a body lift, which was a very big surgery with big risks. Dr. Katzen took off 12 pounds of skin and tissue from my abdomen. I was in surgery for 8 hours and stayed at a recovery retreat for 2 days. Dr. Katzen came by and checked on me both days and assured me everything was fine. Getting the reassurance was much needed and appreciated. He’s has the best caring heart, very polite and humble. His surgical techniques are perfection. I am starting the year off with a New Body and a New Me. More

Neck Liposuction by Timothy Katzen, MD (Beverly Hills, CA) - My neck gave me major insecurities. I booked a free consultation with Dr. Katzen’s office to see what my options were. I was amazingly surprised when Dr. Katzen said he could take care of my problem by neck liposuction. He showed me some pictures of his patients who underwent the same procedure and I was blown away by the results. What I love about Dr. Katzen is, he didn’t try to sell me more procedures than what I needed. I told him what bothered me and he came up with a plan and solution. My neck looks amazing all thanks to Dr. Katzen. More

Former Obese Body, Now Transformed - Ever wonder what a former obese body looks like after massive weight loss? It's not pretty. My skin is all shriveled up like an elephant's skin. Thank goodness for surgeons like Dr. Katzen who can fix me. Dr. Katzen is a renowned surgeon whose specialty is weight loss patients. He does miraculous things to our bodies, things I thought would never look normal again. I had a 360 bodylift, thigh lift, breast augmentation with lift, arm lift, and neck lift with Dr. Katzen (not all at once). I am beyond thrilled with what Dr. Katzen has done for me. There simply isn't enough words to tell him how thankful I am. More

Tummy Tuck and Crescent Thigh Lift - My journey started 3 years ago with a lap band surgery where I lost 99 pounds. I learned how to eat smaller portions and keeping an active lifestyle. I maintained my 99 pound weight loss for 6 months before I decided to have a tummy tuck and crescent thigh lift. I went to the best surgeon money can buy and got exactly the results I wanted. Dr. Katzen really knows his craft and he does it well. I 100% recommend Dr. Katzen. More

Got Rid of my Beer Belly After Tummy Tuck - I blamed my beer belly on my excessive drinking in my 20’s and 30’s. I just turned 40 and I decided to reclaim my health and get rid of my beer belly. Dr. Katzen showed up while searching for a plastic surgeon on Real Self. He definitely stood out from the other plastic surgeons. I had a tummy tuck and my beer belly is gone. I’ve gone down 2-4 sizes in pants, depending what brand I buy. Dr. Katzen is great all around. More

Feeling Good in my Remodeled Body. - I underwent a body lift with Dr. Katzen and the results were noticeable immediately. I lost 143 pounds from gastric sleeve and I had an enormous amount of excess skin. During the body lift, Dr. Katzen removed 20 pounds of excess skin and fat in my abdomen…..20 pounds!!!! I stayed at a nearby recovery center for 2 days with around the clock nursing care. They kept me comfortable and managed my pain while I recovered. After being discharged, I had my weekly check ups with Dr. Katzen where he assured me everything looked fine. After 6 1/2 weeks I was able to function somewhat normal. I had to take it easy with my workout routines and not do anything too strenuous. I donated all my clothes and started a new wardrobe. I feel good in this newly remodeled body. More

Very Helpful to Set Up a "Recovery Station" Prior to Thigh Lift - My inner thigh lift went without a hitch. I had my thigh lift and went back to work in six weeks. I have a desk job where I didn’t have to move around too much. I told my boss about my surgery and he was very understanding. I followed Dr. Katzen’s orders closely and recovered beautifully. Dr. Katzen gave me instructions about surgery and also detailed what to do during recovery. I had my “recovery station” set up prior to surgery, which made all the difference in the world. My “recovery station” was a side table that included things like medication, phone, phone chargers, water, protein shakes, snacks, glasses, remote control, books, etc….. This way everything I needed was within arms reach and I was comfortable and entertained. More

From Texas, traveled to Calif for an abdominoplasty - My abdominoplasty was done in Beverly Hills, California by Dr. Katzen. I live in Texas but didn't care for the doctors I consulted with. I saw that Dr. Katzen offered complimentary Skype consults, so I said, why not. If anything, I can get a price comparison. Wow, he blew me away with his knowledge and he's down to earth. I had emailed him a picture of my abdomen and we discussed a surgical plan. Everything went well and I was back home two weeks after my surgery. We continue to communicate via email and phone. He's very good at returning my messages on a timely matter. More

Highly Recommend Dr. Katzen - I am "normal size" based on my height and weight but my tummy area seemed disproportionate. It sticks out a bit more than I would like. I searched for a doctor close by to make things easier for me, I didn't want to inconvenience anyone to take care of me. Dr. Katzen came up on my search and I could not be happier that his patients love him and his results are great. I had liposuction in my abdomen and after the swelling went down, it looks so amazing. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good plastic surgeon. More

Body Lift Performed by Dr. Katzen - No surprise, I chose Dr. Katzen for my body lift surgery. He is extremely well known for performing reconstructive surgery for weight loss patients. I know a few of his patients through my bariatric support group. I can now happily say I’m one of his “Katzen patient” as well. During my body lift, Dr. Katzen removed 14 pounds of excess skin and fat from my abdomen area. I remember waking up from surgery and immediately noticed how flat and small my tummy was. For the new year, I would like to have my thighs and arms done. Not going to anyone else, but Dr. Katzen. More
