"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"The incisions are hidden quite well and placement was great - In March 2022, I had brachioplasty with Dr. Timothy Katzen. My sister had the same surgery with him last year and she could not stop talking about how wonderful Dr. Katzen is, now I see why. Both my sister and I have fantastic outcomes for the arm lift. The incisions are hidden quite well and placement was great. She and I normally heal from our scars nicely so I expect the same with our incisions. Dr. Katzen and his staff have been so pleasant to work with. I will definitely return to Dr. Katzen if I decide to do any more work to myself. :)"

"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."

"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."

"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!"

"My abdomen, hips, outer thighs, buttocks, and arms look so good! - Dr. Katzen is by far the nicest doctor you will ever meet. He performed a body lift on me, then 7 weeks later, I returned for a brachioplasty. Dr. Katzen is a perfectionist. He takes his time to make sure everything is exactly how it should be. My abdomen, hips, outer thighs, buttocks, and arms look so good! Oh, besides, being the nicest surgeon ever, Dr. Katzen is also board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. He has all the experience and certification you would want in a plastic surgeon."

"After bariatric surgery, I had to do something to get rid of my arm skin - After undergoing bariatric surgery for weight loss, I had to do something to get rid of my arm skin. It was so bad that it drove me nuts. Besides not being able to fit into normal size clothes, I also had bad rashes. I had brachioplasty with a surgeon in Beverly Hills but without the high price tag. His name is Dr. Katzen. He's gentle, highly respectable, produces great results, and has the most amazing bedside manner. I live in the inland empire but it was most definitely worth the drive to have Dr. Katzen work on me."

"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."

"Plastic surgeries with Dr. Katzen after losing 155 Lbs with gastric sleeve - If you are looking for a surgeon that is an expert in body lift, look no further. Dr. Katzen has a long-standing reputation of being a top-notch surgeon for weight loss patients. I underwent the gastric sleeve and lost a total of 155 lbs. Like with most patients, I developed loose skin pretty much all over my body.The very first procedure I had with Dr. Katzen was a 360 body lift. He is a perfectionist in everything he does. After 7 weeks, I returned for my 2nd stage surgery, breast lift, and arm lift. I cannot tell you how happy I am with all my surgeries with Dr. Katzen."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

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."

"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."

"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."

"After weight loss surgery, I experience a bad case of body dysmorphia. 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. My next stage this summer will be the arm lift and breast work. So far, I am very happy with what I see.

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!

I do feel healthier, stronger and built more muscles. I am proud of my new healthy lifestyle that I adopted. After a year of working out hard, I made the decision to have a body makeover. I’ve heard great things about Dr. Katzen from my trusted co-worker. I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen and the outcome is so good. Dr. Katzen is very skilled and compassionate.

"After losing 97 lbs, all I wished for was a “normal” body but Dr. Katzen delivered so much 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. Dr. Katzen gave me curves and an hour glass I didn’t know I could have. I’m 46 but my body looks like 20. I don’t have enough words to describe how phenomenal Dr. Katzen is."

"Dr. Timothy Katzen is THE very best surgeon for thigh lifts. I did extensive research and met with two other surgeons before choosing Dr. Katzen. 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 planning for a body lift, arm lift and breast augmentation in the near future. No surprise, I will be a return patient. He is the only plastic surgeon I trust with my life."

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.

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!

"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 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."

"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.

He's the best, I wouldn't have anyone else do my plastic reconstructive surgeries but him."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

"Excellent body lift and arm lift done by Dr. Timothy Katzen - 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."

"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. I am excited to have Dr. Katzen finish the reconstructive surgeries so I can have a fresh start. After all is done, I plan to have a full face and hair makeover and get some professional pictures done."

"Dr. Katzen and His Surgical Team Are Friendly, Gentle, and Professional. - 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. They are ALL so friendly, gentle and professional. The result: Wow! My arms are a.m.a.z.i.n.g!!!!!"

"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!"

"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."

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 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!

"Exceptional Thigh Lift Results and Experience - Dr. Timothy Katzen is THE very best surgeon for thigh lifts. I did extensive research and met with two other surgeons before choosing Dr. Katzen. 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.

Two years ago, I embarked a journey to better health. I got myself a personal trainer and worked with a nutritionist. I am now the healthiest I’ve been in a very long time. Due to years of being overweight, I was left with some “bat wings” under my arms. My trainer said no matter what exercises I did, it would not take care of the excess skin. I consulted with 4 surgeons in Beverly Hills, they all had great credentials. I chose Dr. Katzen because he is kind, warm and sincere. He’s also done hundreds of arm lift surgeries which is reassuring. Surgery went very well. My incisions are hidden on the inside of my arms, it’s hard to spot unless I raise my arms. Dr. Katzen promised they will get lighter as time goes on. When I came in for my first post op visit, I met one of his post op patients who had an arm lift with him years ago. I asked to see her incision and she happily showed me. I could hardly see her incision at all. I’m excited for mine to heal so I can throw out my 3/4 sleeve shirts.

My internist recommended I seek help to lose weight. I had RNY gastric bypass and lost 160 pounds. I no longer needed to be on medications for diabetes or high blood pressure. Life should be good, right? It was far from it. I now had new excess skin issues to deal with. I seeked medical help once more. My bariatric surgeon spoke highly of Dr. Katzen so I met with him. Dr. Katzen was so compassionate and understanding. He listened and understood my struggles. He drafted a plan for three stages of surgeries for me (Body Lift, Medial Thigh Lift, Breast and Arm Lift). He was able to see past my excess skin and envisioned my new body. In the last nine months, I’ve gone through three stages of surgeries with Dr. Katzen. He did a full overhaul on my body….I don’t look like the same person anymore (in a very good way!). My belly no longer hangs to my thighs, my thighs no longer rub together, my breasts don’t hang to my stomach, and my arms no longer flap when I move.

The last thing that still bothered me was my neck. I thought I would need a neck lift but Dr. Katzen said he can do liposuction instead. Wow, I cannot believe how great my neck looks. Dr. Katzen is amazing. He completely transformed..."

"My Christmas gift was an arm lift, best gift ever! - Arm Lift surgery was something I had considered for a while now. I had the RNY gastric bypass surgery 2 years ago. I successfully lost 145 lbs and got my health on track. Unfortunately, it left me with some saggy skin in several parts of my body. Last year, I had the body lift surgery with Dr. Katzen and was extremely satisfied with the outcome. He's a great surgeon who has a great eye..."

"Desperately Needed Panniculectomy - September 2014 I had weight loss surgery. My whole world changed for the better. Eating better exercising and having tons of energy. The last year I had been working out religiously none stop. Taking fitness classes lifting weights and even running treadmills. All these things helped me get into better shape, but I was still unhappy and felt like I wasn't getting the results I wanted. I had to modify exercises constantly as my weight decreased my skin started to stretch and hang. This skin was causing me to have trouble doing everyday activities. After having an emergency hernia repair from my pannus pulling on my abdomen I was feeling helpless. Ranting one day on social media a doctor liked my post and of course I looked him up. Dr Timothy Katzen who happened to have a satellite office in my home town I made an appointment with him for a consultation and right away I felt very welcomed and comfortable every one from the front desk the coordinator Belinda who helped me in every step of the surgery to most importantly Dr. Katzen he explained with great detail the procedure I needed to obtained the results I wanted so after thinking about it I decided to move foward and do the procedure. I started out with my first surgery a panniculectomy which removed the skin that hung from my abdomen to my knees. I woke up seeing my thighs for the first time in 35 years without having to move my skin out of the way. Of course i cried like a baby. Was the most amazing thing I have seen in a very very long time. I felt no fear or any pain at anytime Dr Katzen and his team always made sure to check on me before and after the surgery.My second surgery will be a breast lift and arm lift. And the third surgery scheduled will be for my thighs which is going to change my life forever and I am counting down the days to these remarkable days.2018 is going to be eye opening for me Thank you always and forever Dr Katzen and your amazing staff!"

The staff did all the paperwork to submit to my insurance and I waited 5 weeks before I heard back anything. When they called me to say insurance approved, I was overjoyed. I couldn’t believe it. That same day, we scheduled my surgery and the rest is history. My arms look so good! I highly recommend Dr. Katzen."

My trainer said no matter how hard I worked out, I would need surgery to address the excess skin on my arms. My trainer said he worked with another weight loss patient that had the same problem I did and told me how she went to Dr. Katzen. I made an appointment with Dr. Katzen and was met by the most kind surgeon. He was generous with his time and answered all my questions. He clearly has treated many patients who have had weight loss surgery. I felt very comfortable with him. In April, Dr. Katzen performed an arm lift on me and it looks so great. The incision is already healing so beautifully. It’s hidden inside my arms where no one really sees it unless my arms are in the air. My experience with Dr. Katzen was great!"

"Youtube led me to Dr. Katzen, he’s the best. - Where do I start? My life has been transformed so much in the last 2 1/2 years. I had RNY gastric bypass surgery and lost 125 pounds. Thank goodness for the technology world we live in. I went on youtube and found many youtubers making videos about their weight loss journey which includes reconstructive surgery. I was inspired by the honesty and willingness of these people who show everything from their sagging skin to their incisions. I felt an instant connection with some of these people through their videos. I noticed there were quite a few videos where they chose Dr. Katzen to do their nips and tucks and the results looked amazing. His patients all used the same type of descriptive words when talking about him: kind, expert, artist, etc…..I was impressed. I made an appointment with Dr. Katzen and felt warm and comfortable right off the bat. He specializes in weight loss patients and has done thousands of procedures on patients just like me. What more can I ask for? I booked my surgeries right away, first a body lift then came back four months later and had a thigh lift. I will be back for my final stage of surgery which is a brachioplasty and breast augmentation with lift. I proudly show off my new body. I may even do a youtube video once my transformation is complete."

"Amazing surgeon, amazing staff! - When I first visited Dr. Katzen's office for a consultation, I was immediately convinced that I had found the best surgeon, and I was right! Not only is Dr. Katzen extremely knowledgeable, kind, caring, and attentive, but his stellar staff is also amazingly friendly and considerate. Every single member of the team is outstanding! Both Dr. Katzen and his staff answered all of my questions and walked me through the entire process to ensure I understood what was going to take place, in preparation for both the day of the surgery as well as the recovery process. The procedure itself (an arm lift) went perfectly and Dr. Katzen continually ensured my recovery was smooth and comfortable at all of my post operative visits, which were great as well (and the wait time in the office is always less than 10 minutes!) I am thrilled with my terrific result (which, six months later, still continues to improve) and will always be so grateful to Dr. Katzen and his amazing staff!"

"Massive amount of excess skin gone forever! - Two years ago I had a gastric sleeve done and lost 150 pounds. I felt healthier and full of life but I didn’t feel complete. With the weight loss, I was left with massive amounts of excess skin. I had heard about Dr. Katzen’s work prior to having the gastric sleeve. I was pretty certain I was going to have him to do my reconstructive surgeries. I attended a seminar where he was speaking about reconstructive surgery after weight loss surgery and was impressed with his whole presentation. He showed many before and after photos and when he spoke, I thought to myself what a kind and caring human being he is. Without wasting much time, I scheduled my appointment and booked my surgeries. In two stages, Dr. Katzen did a circumferential body lift, thigh lift, arm lift, torsoplasty, breast augmentation and lift. I am so grateful to Dr. Katzen. He made me beautiful and complete."

"Over a year ago, I never thought I would ever need a plastic surgeon. I was obese! There was no sagging skin on me, not an ounce of it. I had gastric bypass to lose weight and with that came tons of excess skin all over my body. I needed to seek a highly skilled surgeon to take care of all my loose skin. With the excess skin, I still felt like I was fat. I literally hand handfuls of excess skin everywhere. It was not a pretty sight. I consulted with 5 surgeons and chose Dr. Katzen. Many of them acted like they were God but Dr. Katzen was down to earth, kind and had the most amount of experience with weight loss patients. I even saw some of his post ops’ scars that they were proud to show. His work is just beautiful. I had a body lift, brachioplasty, breast augmentation and lift with Dr. Katzen (not all at the same time). At my last visit with Dr. Katzen before leaving town, I cried happy tears. For once, I felt pretty and like a “normal” person. I never knew how it felt to feel beautiful and feminine. I traveled quite some ways to seek Dr. Katzen and it was all worth it."

"No More “bat Wings” After my Brachioplasty - Beverly Hills, CA - I started my weight loss journey 1 1/2 years ago and lost 200 pounds. Like others who have lost a massive amount of weight, I too had lots of excess skin. I searched for Dr. Katzen on many websites and noticed he was going to be at a conference near me. I attended his talk and booked a consultation with him. I knew right away he was the only surgeon for me. It took me a few months to think and decide if I really “NEEDED” skin removal surgery. I thought I might be fine living with all this sagging skin. Finally, I was ready. I needed to do this for me. I underwent a brachioplasty and my life is already changing. It gets hot in Southern California sometimes but I never dared to wear short sleeve shirts. My closet is full of long sleeves because I was too embarrassed to show my “bat winged” arms. I can say, I’m now the proud owner of many short sleeve shirts and tank tops. It feels so great. My next surgeries have been scheduled with Dr. Katzen. I look forward to the transformation to rid of my excess skin."

He performed the revision on my tummy tuck and in addition, I had him do an arm lift on me. The arm lift portion was covered by my insurance. The results on both surgeries are wonderful."
