"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."

"I am currently at 7 months since my extended abdominoplasty and lipo. Dr Katzen did such a great job. Initial appointment set up was a bit of a hassle. I almost had to cancel my surgery because I was misinformed of the date agreed upon. In the end my employer worked with me and we handled the new surgery date. Pre surgery process was a little crazy. There is so much to do and so little time. Only wish was the required testing list could have been provided a little earlier so the appointments could have been made smoothly. Surgery day I was so scared and panicking honestly but dr Katzen, the staff and anesthesiologist were amazing and took care of me. When I woke up someone stayed by me every second and I saw dr Katzen shortly after and he told me he took 13 pounds and said I did great. This stuck with me in a good way. I appreciated the care. Post surgery was rough! Keep in mind everyone recovers differently!!!! The tightness in your abdomen is extremely uncomfortable. I felt like I couldn’t breathe and the ride to my after care in the ambulance was painful. If you have the means stay at a facility!!!! It will make your first 3-4 days(the hardest in my opinion) so much more manageable. I was very very sick the first 4 days. The nausea was the biggest challenge for me. After that hurdle the mental game begins. I had two amazing people to care for me 24/7 and I can say it’s a lot on someone. New appreciation for caregivers is a shared opinion amongst us all now. No one could have prepared me for the mental challenge. If you have never had a major surgery please do what you can to prepare for being helpless and finding a way to be okay with it. Once mobility comes back and normalcy starts to trickle in things will get so much better. Realistically I’d say 5 month’s minimum is the milestone i would plan for. I’m now at 7 and still have zero sensation in all of my abdomen. I understand it may be permanent but I’m hopeful. Misc info Lotion is your best friend for lipo areas!!!! Don’t rush removing the tubes. Infection is also possible with wound care. I got a bad staff infection and could see inside my body very deeply and that was traumatic. Lots of antibiotics!!! All in all this was a life changing experience and I’m very happy with my results. My before and after are attached. My sisters wedding before surgery and my dads wedding 2022. Update: forgot to mention although I understand bodies aren’t perfect I do wish my belly button wasn’t 100% off set to the right. Also biggest disappointment was my pelvic area does not reflect that it was reduced in size. (No fat removed just lifted) have not seen the surgery of course but before and after to me is not different. I now have a flat stomach and a puff that sticks out at my pelvic line. I hoped it would reduce from swelling but it’s been 7 months."

"Came to Dr.Katzen for my arm lift surgery in November 2022. The dr and staff are very knowledgeable. Everything was explained perfectly and all questions were answered. I’m so happy with my decision to come to Dr.Katzen, I am loving my results! Incision looks great and I’m healing very very well."

"I had abdominal sketching, a crescent arm lift, and liposuction. He did a wonderful job. Dr Katzen has a wonderful bedside manner, he listens to the patient, and gives you exactly what you ask for. I would highly recommend him! He is a very talented surgeon. My crescent arm lift is essential scar-free. The results are even better than I could have hoped for."

"I had an arm lift with Dr.Katzen and I'm very happy with the results. You can see in the results pictures he has on his site how skilled he is in this area. He made me feel very comfortable from the consultation and when I was concerned about scarring he was realistic with me that I wouldn't be happy with just a liposuction due to the leftover skin. The scarring is going down with his recommendations and I'm so glad I chose to work with him. Plus, Yesyka and Talia are gems and made the whole billing to healing process easy."

"Silicon injection removal - don't wait until it's too late - All I have to say is Dr. Katzen is number 1 on the list for silicone injection removal in Beverly Hills, CA.Why did I chose Dr. Katzen is because he is very knowledge & has videos, plus years of experience removing this foreign substance from your body. I had the removal on March 31, 2022 and my reconstruction is March 29, 2023.When I woke up from my 1st surgery on 3-31-22, I was so afraid. On a pain scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the highest, my pain was a 0 1/2 to 1.If you're going to do any videoing of your journey to help others, please be sure to bring your sunglasses.I just had a virtual consultation with Dr. Katzen on January 9, 2023 & he answered all of my questions & wasn't rushing.If you are thinking about getting removal, send me a personal email so I can give you more details & support.Don't wait until it's too late and it turn into granuloma cancer, dialysis, lupus, and/or many other illnesses.I would choose Dr. Katzen over any of these plastic surgeons when it comes to this. Trust & believe."

"Results are as good as some of the most high priced specialists in the city - Although this review is for Botox i need to give you a rundown on why i choose Dr Katzen I have always had an incredible experience with Dr Katzen. I have had a tummy tuck, breast lift, BBL plus both an arm lift and a thigh lift since 2017- and I’m not a massive weight loss patient. He's just that good. He Probably has more experience than anyone else in Los Angeles with these lift procedures This past summer wearing shorts for the first time in 20 years was truly life changing. Freeing. And tank tops without a “light sweater” on top to hide my arms when it’s 100 degrees outside- priceless. I wish i would have seen him sooner- like in my 20s- alas he wasn’t around yet :) . . So kind and patient and talented. Why i never turned to him for Botox and filler is a mystery. In November i got Botox from the very knowledgeable Talia in his office who is good at everything including post surgical care . Her results are as good as some of the most high priced specialists in the city. I’m also ready for my 2nd Mobius 8 session- great results. . He numbs us twice which really is necessary. He will always do what is necessary to keep you looking good and getting there as pain free as possible. . Great Dr. Great office."

"I had a tummy tuck in July 2022 and my results are beyond expectations! Dr. Katzen is knowledgeable, kind, personable and a master at what he does! His office staff are equally amazing. They make you feel important, heard and well taken care of. My results are better than I could have ever imagined and hope that if you are on the fence about booking with the doctor, this review will help your decision. I don’t regret my choice and only hope your surgery will bring you the confidence and joy mine has!!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

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.

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"You will not find a more caring and skilled surgeon than Dr. Katzen. I went through significant weight loss and had to go through a body lift and I am so glad I ended up going with Dr. Katzen. It is a big decision and a surgery and he and his team will make sure that they make you feel comfortable and make you a priority from start to finish. There is no ego here. Just a Dr. that truly wants all his patients to be their best self. Thank you Dr. Katzen!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"Dr Katzen performed a revision arm lift, and i gave him a real challenge with scar tissue. From the moment i had my first consultation to my last appointment before heading back to my home country, i cannot talk highly enough of the Dr Katzen and his team. 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. I am only 8 weeks post op, and cant wait to show my arms off once again."

"He is thorough, experienced, & knows how to explain what he is going to do - In 2005, I received illegal butt shots in my hips and buttocks area. I was told by the injector that saline was injected in me. Periodically, I would get striking pain in my groin area & never associated it with the illegal substance that was in me. My groin area was so hard like straw with cement in it. I found out from Dr. Katzen the substance is free flow and it was in my lymph nodes. It also spread to my left leg below my knee.When I used the restroom & sat too long on the toilet, my legs would get numb. When I stood up, I couldn't walk because it was so painful.Some years back, I had heard K Michelle the R & B singer talk about removal of the illegal substance in her behind. I was afraid to listen to her story & finally I listen & it scared me. I schedule my appt with Dr. Katzen because he is thorough, experienced, & knows how to explain what he is going to do.He doesn't sugar coat anything and that's what I love about him. He's real and doesn't give unrealistic expectations.I had heard some females say, Dr. Katzen will butcher you. I told them, 1st of all, he didn't do this to us, he's only helping & how else is he going to get it out of us if it's in the muscle.So far, I'm not hurting & waiting on my 2nd surgery on March 6, 2023. Dr. Katzen's staff is so professional. I really love Anna.Updated on 13 Jul 2022:My surgery was on March 31, 2022 and I sat down for the 1st time in a recline position on May 12. 8 weeks after my surgery, I started to drive a little and sit upright. I slept on my stomach for 10 weeks. I used the bathroom standing up in a small mop bucket. When my cycle came on, I used gorilla tape to tape down my pad in front and behind my compression garment because you can't wear panties. Dr. Katzen told me to take 2 oxycodone pills every 6 hours and it really helped me with the pain.Updated on 23 Dec 2022:Here are images since I had surgery March 31, 2022 with Dr. Katzen. He did an excellent job getting thus toxic poison out of me. My refill in the dents surgery is March 28, 2023 & I'm so excited.Updated on 9 Jan 2023:A working progress. Check me out Dr. Katzen. My self esteem was so low after surgery on March 31, 2022.I made the worse mistake having illegal silicone injected placed in my buttocks & hip area. Dr Katzen got 98% of it out. Dr. Katzen, you are about to give me my confidence back on March 29, 2023.Anyone need emotional support, email me at [email protected], trust me, u will need it.I can't wait til the end of March so I can closed this chapter of my life.Updated on 8 Feb 2023:I just want to set the record about Dr. Katzen. I had silicone injection removal in March 2022 & will be having my Reconstructive BBL next month in March 2023.I have come across 2 people bashing Dr. Katzen & I am a witness that he is an excellent, experienced, top-of-the-line plastic surgeon I haven't had anymore striking pain in my groin areas or lower left leg under my knee.The first thing you have to realize is Dr. Katzen didn't put this injected toxin in our bodies. You 2 ladies have totally forgotten who put you in this padicument. He is here to help.There is no excuse for anyone to think he is going to get 100% of the biopolymers out of your body. The paperwork is emailed to us, so there's no excuse you can always go back & read what you initialed & signed.You could have gone somewhere else. It was a choice. Yes, I cried when I read the paperwork because I didn't know what my outcome would be. Now, it has been almost a year, I am satisfied with Dr. Katzen's work. I have dents & it's to be expected because my injections had migrated to my muscle over the 17 year span.For those of you who are skeptical about Dr. Katzen, he is competent for the job. Obtain a virtual consultation. You'll be proud that you did."

"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!"

He is a very talented surgeon who genuinely cares for his patients.

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!

"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. My husband had the best possible experience with his surgery, he referred his sister to have a tummy tuck with Dr. Katzen. Throughout the process, I watched my husband and sister-in-law being completely happy with their surgeries and I was wanting to have liposuction on my abs. Without any hesitation, I went straight to Dr. Katzen. I knew he would take good care of me, just like he did my family and he did."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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.

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."

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.

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."

"My stomach is back to how it looked in my twenties - Before I get into my surgery, I want to tell you about my plastic surgeon, Dr. J. Timothy Katzen. This man is wonderful with his hands, he's also so caring and sincere. He is such a perfectionist with scar placement and my incisions look so good. I had a mommy makeover and everyone keeps telling me how amazing I look. I went from saggy breast to perky and full. My stomach is back to how it looked in my twenties. I couldn't be happier with my mommy makeover."

"Found the Surgeon for my Tummy Tuck on Real Self, Very Happy! - I had 2 kids in my 20s and my abdomen was never the same afterward. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids and would do it all over again. I found Dr. Timothy Katzen on Real Self and loved everything about him. I love the way he answers the questions, the way his patients talk about him, how he shares so many of his pictures and videos, basically everything. I had my tummy tuck procedure and he did not disappoint. It was how I dreamed my tummy would look after surgery. Oh, I also need to mention how kind and polite this man is. Dr. Katzen is everything!"

"No more inner thighs rashes after medial thigh lift - Before I had my gastric sleeve procedure, I was already having problems with my thighs rubbing together and chafing. I was hoping after I lost over 100 pounds, my thighs would not be in pain from the chafing anymore, but that was not the case. My bariatric surgeon recommended Dr. Katzen for a medial thigh lift and that's what I had. I am so grateful for Dr. Katzen, he's changed my life for the better. I no longer have rashes or pain in my inner thighs anymore."

"My Body is Ready for the Beach After VASER Hi-Def of Abdomen and Arms - I heard about Dr. Katzen through a colleague and was just interested in liposuction of my arms and abdomen. As I awaited my appointment date, I went on Dr. Katzen's website to do further research. To my surprise, I learned about VASER High Definition procedures and it immediately piqued my interest. During my consultation with Dr. Katzen, I asked a lot of questions about this VASER procedure and was sold when Dr. Katzen pulled up an entire album of pictures. Woah, the VASER lipo procedures produce such awesome results. I had VASER hi-def of arms and abdomen and I am still amazed at how my body looks. My body is already beach and vacation-ready."

"Male's Perspective on Tummy Tuck - I don't see many reviews on here from men so I'm going to give a male's perspective on plastic surgery. As men, I feel we accept our bodies more than females do, but why can't we look our best and feel our best? For me personally, I underwent a tummy tuck and it truly was one of the best gifts I have treated myself to. Everyone around me compliments how great I look and it makes me feel good and self-assured. I found this surgeon in Beverly Hills that is amazing at tummy tucks along with other procedures. His name is doctor J. Timothy Katzen. He's easy to talk to and his entire team is well put together. He has a calmness about him where you feel safe being under his care. He's truly top-notch!"

"Body Lift with 19 Pounds of Fat and Excess Skin Removed - After a successful year of weight loss, I was prepared for the next step of my journey, which is reconstructive plastic surgery with Dr. Timothy Katzen. I had a body lift where Dr. Katzen removed 19 pounds of fat and excessive skin. I have never looked so good in all of my adult life. I was finally free from obesity and excess skin. The best word to describe how I feel now is confidence. Since my body lift, I feel different, I carry myself differently, I dress differently. All good things. Life is so good now."

"Super clean tummy tuck incision & my abdomen is flat - The tummy tuck procedure has been on my list of things I wanted to do.

Dr. Katzen made a super clean incision and my abdomen is flat as can be. I love my tummy tuck."

"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. You can also tell he treats his staff well by how he interacts with them."

"360 body lift and medial thigh lift after 129 lbs weight loss - I am from Las Vegas, Nevada, and found Dr. Katzen to be the best fit for my reconstructive surgeries, so I gladly drove to California for my procedures. I had roux-en-y gastric bypass and lost 129 pounds. Dr. Katzen did my 360 body lift and medial thigh lift after my weight loss. Dr. Katzen has over 20 years of experience, specifically on weight loss patients and the results show how great his techniques really are. I just found out Dr. Katzen is lecturing at the Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America conference this weekend in Henderson, NV. If you are in the Vegas area and want a consultation with him, you better do yourself a favor and call his office. I am one of the lucky ones to call him my surgeon!"

"Back in the dating scene and needed to do something to feel and look better - Having a tummy tuck earlier this year is one of the best feelings I've experienced. I am back in the dating scene and felt like I needed to do something to feel better and look better. It's been almost 2 months since my tummy tuck with Dr. Katzen and I can say, I feel much more confident with myself. As far as my experience with Dr. Katzen and his team, it was very pleasant. Dr. Katzen and his office staff are professional and very friendly. Oh, and let's not forget to mention I had a tummy tuck reveal to my closest friends (because they wanted to see it), they were blown away with the results!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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"!"

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

I figured I could live with my thighs the way it was but it was becoming harder to deal with. I live in the desert in California, so the summer months are extremely hot. I often break out with boils and they hurt so bad. Even though Dr. Katzen's office is a few hours from my house, he was worth the drive every single time.

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"Dr. Katzen is a gem - all I can say is wow! - Dr. Katzen and his entire team are absolutely incredible!! From start to finish, they made me feel completely comfortable with the procedures. Dr. Katzen was so personable and was easily reachable even after work hours. Now for the results...all I can say is WOW! I got chin lipo and vaser arm lipo. I am soooo happy with the results. I've wanted it for awhile but was hesitant to go under the knife. I'm glad I did it and couldn't imagine anyone other than Dr. Katzen performing the surgery."

"Arm Lift Has Given Me my "Normal" Life Again. - Having an arm lift has changed my daily life so drastically. Background story: I used to weigh 280 pounds, lost over 100 pounds. After weight loss, I was left with "bat wings" that hung quite low. My arms got in the way at my job, like, it got caught in the cabinets, etc. At home, I have gotten burned on the stove and many other inconveniences. I would constantly get rashes on my arms and they would hurt. I couldn't fit normal tops because of my arms. Now, after arm lift, I can function normally and buy clothes off the rack. It feels so good to be able to do normal things in life."

I found Real Self to be very resourceful. I narrowed my options to 2 surgeons and ultimately chose Dr. Katzen to perform liposuction on me. I am very happy with my lipo and my overall experience was exceptional. I highly recommend you do your research before any kind of procedure, I am really glad I did."

"I am very pleased with how flat my tummy is - What's there not to love about Dr. Katzen? He's the ideal surgeon to get me through my journey. I lost 82 pounds through many years of diet and exercise. No matter how hard I tried, I could not get rid of the stubborn skin and some fat in my abdomen. I came into his office thinking I needed a full-body lift but Dr. Katzen said all I needed was an extended tummy tuck. I love that he didn't try to "oversell" a procedure I didn't need. He was right, with the extended tummy tuck, I was very pleased with the shape of my body and how flat my tummy is. Dr. Katzen is one of a kind and I feel lucky to have him as my plastic surgeon."

"Bariatric Surgery, then Body Lift, then Arm Lift - I was an obese person most of my life until I had the gastric sleeve and lost 130 lbs. I asked my bariatric surgeon if he can refer me to a plastic reconstruction surgeon and without hesitation, he gives me doctor Timothy Katzen's name. Many patients of my bariatric surgeon went to Dr. Katzen with great results. I ended up having a body lift and later returned for an arm lift. After I healed from my surgeries, I paid a visit to my bariatric surgeon and he was very happy for me and my results. I owe both my bariatric surgeon and Dr. Katzen so much for changing my life forever."

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."

"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."

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."

"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."

"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."

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.

"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."

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 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.

"Arm Lift with a Highly Educated and Well Trained Surgeon. - Dr. Katzen is literally the best surgeon I have ever encountered. 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."

"Dr. Katzen is very talented with a cheery personality. - I do some magazine modeling and it was important for me to have nice looking abs. I came across Dr. Katzen's youtube channel and was amazed by his skill and talent. I viewed his video about abdomen vaser hi-definition liposuction. Wow, I was blown away by how it completely transformed people's abs. I was convinced this is a great investment for me, so I went ahead and booked my procedure. As expected, Dr. Katzen did not disappoint. He delivered excellent results with a happy cheery attitude, which made my entire experience great."

"Dr. Katzen is a True Artist at Sculpting Bodies. - I had the Vaser High Definition Liposuction procedure on my abdomen by Dr. Timothy Katzen. When I tell you this man knows how to sculpt your body, I mean he REALLY knows how. Just check out his website for yourself. I wanted to have a 6 pack, well defined, highly sculpted abs, and that's exactly what I got. Dr. Katzen is a true artist when it comes to sculpting bodies."

"Beautiful Thigh Lift - I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found Dr. Katzen. His work is really good, prices are fair, his personality is beyond what you would expect from a surgeon. I always enjoy seeing Dr. Katzen during my visits. Dr. Katzen did a medial thigh lift on me and it turned out very good. He took some pictures of me the other day, so I look forward to seeing them on his website. I give Dr. Katzen a full 5 stars. He more than deserves them. Thank you Dr. Katzen for my beautiful thigh lift."

"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."

"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%!"

"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...."
