Reviews for Tummy Tuck Procedures Near Beverly Hills, CA

5.0 Review from T.9. Source: Google Feb 23 2023

"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."

"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!!"

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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."

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

"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!"

"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."

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

"I Look and Feel So Much Younger! - Many people in my life have complimented my appearance lately after undergoing a tummy tuck and neck lipo. I went down 4 dress sizes after my tummy tuck and it has made such a big difference in how my clothes fit, the type of clothes I can now wear, and how I look and carry myself. As for my neck, everyone tells me I look much more slender in the face and much younger. All in all, I look and feel amazing. I love my transformation so much. Dr. Katzen did a fantastic job with both the tummy tuck and neck liposuction."

"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."

"Great surgeon - he has great qualifications and a pleasant attitude - I consulted for tummy tuck surgery with 3 surgeons before meeting Dr. Katzen. All the surgeons I consulted with were in Beverly Hills since that's where I live and there were plenty of surgeons to choose from with great qualifications. The first 3 surgeons had great qualifications but were so cocky, some less than others. I thought I was going to just settle until I met Dr. Katzen. He is just as qualified, if not more, but with a pleasant attitude. Win win for me!"

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

"Felt right immediately & did an amazing tummy tuck job - When I was doing my research for a plastic surgeon, there were a few things that were top of my list as priorities. #1 He or she needed to be board certified by the ASPS. #2 They needed to have many years of experience with Tummy Tuck surgeries (the procedure I was researching for). #3 I needed to feel comfortable with the surgeon and their staff (reason the staff part is important is because you do need to deal with them quite a bit pre and post op). Dr. Timothy Katzen met all the criteria I was looking for and then some. I couldn't be more pleased to have met him and it felt right immediately. Dr. Katzen did an amazing job on my tummy tuck and he took very good care of me."

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.

"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!"

There are so many plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills to choose from, but ultimately I chose Dr. Katzen because of his credentials, experience, results, and personality/character. Dr. Katzen made a super clean incision and my abdomen is flat as can be. I love my tummy tuck."

"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!"

"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."

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

"Restored Body After an Extended Tummy Tuck - The last two years I have dedicated myself to a healthier me. I learned to eat better and exercise. I lost a total of 84 pounds. Because I was overweight for so long and my age, my skin elasticity was not that great. After losing weight, I was still left with drooping saggy skin in my abdomen. I sought out Dr. Katzen for an extended tummy tuck. Dr. Katzen helped restored my body back to a normal shape."

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

"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."

"Tummy Tuck with a Great Surgeon and Office! - My tummy tuck procedure and experience were great. I had been following Dr. Katzen on Instagram and Tik Tok. I love how he shows the actual procedures from the OR and how his patients' testimonials are showcased. Those things made me more confident about my decision to choose Dr. Katzen for my tummy tuck. As soon as I called the office, I felt comfortable right away. Anna took the call, she's so kind and helpful. Then at my initial consultation, I met Dr. Katzen for the first time. He genuinely cares for me as a patient and took his time to go over everything with me. Gosh, I can't say enough about how wonderful Dr. Katzen and his office is.

"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."

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

"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."

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

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

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

"Incredible Results from Abdominoplasty. - I took advantage of time working from home during this pandemic to have a tummy tuck. Almost everything prior to my surgery was handled over the telephone. I did take a couple of days off right after surgery, but I felt well enough to work shortly after. After my tummy tuck, my abdomen was a little swollen as expected. Now, my abdomen is flat and smooth. It looks incredible!"

"I Am a Nurse and Met Dr. Katzen at the Hospital I Work At. He's Amazing! - I am an RN so I pay close attention to the credentials and reputations of doctors. I knew Dr. Katzen because he has privileges at the hospital I work at. Everyone loves him and praises how great it is to work with him. I got to know Dr. Katzen through the years and am so impressed with his work. I underwent an abdominoplasty with him and I couldn't be happier. The incision line is so clean and precise. I healed extremely well and my scar looks minimal and nice. He said eventually it will fade and I will hardly notice them. So glad I met Dr. Katzen."

"Body Lift: I Feel Like a Million Bucks. - I am a weight loss patient who had the lap band. I lost 110 pounds and feeling healthy. The only downfall with the lap band surgery for me was the excess skin after I lost the weight. Thankfully, there's Dr. Katzen to the rescue. He performed a body lift on me. With the body lift, I got the tummy tuck, hip lift, butt lift, lateral thigh lift, and mons lift. I feel like a million bucks. My surgery turned out so much better than I imagined it would be."

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

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

I had tummy tuck and medial thigh lift. I had some complications with the medial thigh lift opening up a little but everything still healed up nicely. The scar is small and tidy even after opening and closing by secondary intention. I’m only 7 weeks post op so I still have a lot of work to do with my incision scars but he gave me a great shape. I’m happy. Updated on 10 Apr 2019: 7 weeks post op. Scar needs work work but the shape is great. The incision on my public area is from a tension suture but will fade. Im finally back st the gym.

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

I figured I needed to make a drastic change in my image if I am going to put myself out there. I’m happy I found Dr. Katzen on Real Self and had a tummy tuck with him. He is genuine and good at what he does. After the swelling subsided, my tummy is flat and small, it looks so good. I find myself walking with a little more pep in my steps.

My daughter tells me I needed to stop wearing baggy jeans because I looked fat, I didn't know how to shop for my new body. I asked my daughter to go shopping with me and I was left in tears. I tried on some form fitted jeans and couldn't fit my thighs through the legs. I had a tummy tuck before, so the excessive skin on my abdomen were resolved. I normally wear maxi dresses so my thighs were always well hidden. No amount of exercise can rid my big thighs so I turned to surgery. I found this amazing surgeon in Beverly Hills and he did an excellent job with my medial thigh lift."

"I met Dr. Katzen many years ago at a Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America meeting. I attended the meeting to get more information about weight loss surgery but I noticed he was listed as a speaker about reconstructive surgery after weight loss. I decided to attend the talk just to see. He spoke so well and provided great information. He shared many great pictures of his patients. Years pass, I had weight loss surgery and lost 108 pounds. I went to Dr. Katzen for extended tummy tuck and breast lift, best decision I ever made."

"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."

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

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

I cannot believe all those got taken care of with the body lift. Dr. Katzen is TERRIFIC!"

I came in for a consult with Dr. Katzen, right afterwards I met with his surgical coordinator where she gave me a cash quote that included a breakdown of OR fees, anesthesia fees, surgeon’s fee and a few other fees. I immediately put a deposit down to secure my surgery date. They gave me a date to come in for a pre op visit. In the meantime, I was given work up orders and instructions on what to do and what to anticipate for. I’m a planner, so I appreciate that everything was laid out for me.

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

"Dr. Katzen Revised a Tummy Tuck Done by Another Surgeon - When I was 25 years old, I had this fantasy of a perfect beach body. I didn’t have much money but wanted a tummy tuck so badly that I went to the cheapest place I can afford, BIG MISTAKE! This young surgeon performed and botched my tummy tuck. Later to find out, he wasn’t board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. I lived with it for over 5 years until I saved up enough to have it re-done.I found Dr. Katzen online and had a consultation with him in Beverly Hills. Dr. Katzen looked at my botched abdomen and assured me he can fix it. Not only did he fix it, he also tightened my six-pack muscle underneath, what a nice bonus. I can’t tell you how great it feels to have this super flat abdomen. I know everyone always says Dr. Katzen is the best, really he is."

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

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

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

I’m 42 but my tummy looks like a 20 year olds tummy. I’m born and raised in Malibu, CA. Once I heal completely, I will be bikini shopping to show off Dr. Katzen’s work."

"35 years old, tummy tuck after three kids - I am 35 years old with three kids. I told my husband I am done having more kids and am ready for my tummy tuck. He was supportive and our quest began. He and I looked online to find a reliable surgeon with a good reputation. We narrowed it down to two surgeons and picked Dr. Katzen. Dr. Katzen was great. He did an amazing job on my tummy tuck. It's flatter than it's ever been. Highly recommend him!"

"Mommy makeover after 4 beautiful kids - I’m a mom to four beautiful children. My body has endured quite a bit and it was time to get it back to shape. There’s no shame in a mommy makeover, I needed it. A friend of mine had her breast augmentation and tummy tuck with Dr. Katzen and I loved her new body. I scheduled my appointment and immediately felt at ease with him. He takes the time to explain things in a language I can understand. Surgery and recovery went smooth as I had hoped for. I cannot wait for summer to hang out at the beach with my family and not worry about my flabs and sags."

"Nothing feels as good as being comfortable in your own skin - Having Lap band surgery was one of the best decisions of my life. My doctor said I needed to lose weight and change my lifestyle. It took me two years, but I lost 105 pounds. I ate right and started exercising. I was one of the fortunate ones who didn’t have a lot of saggy skin, perhaps because I’m still young. The one area that was a nuisance to me was my abdomen. It affected my confidence big time. I found Dr. Katzen online, I couldn’t wait to book my appointment. My first impression of him was great, he recommended a tummy tuck and the rest was history. He tightened my abdomen and gave me an hour glass figure I didn’t know I had. Nothing feels as good as being comfortable in your own skin."

"Very happy with my extended tummy tuck - I came to Dr. Katzen because of his great reputation, he did not disappoint. I had lap band surgery and had some excess skin. During consultation, Dr. Katzen said I would need an extended tummy tuck. I love his realistic approach to surgery. I came in not wanting a long incision but he says with my excess skin hanging on the sides, “the longer the incision, the better the results”. I trusted his judgment and went for it. I am very happy with the shape of my body, my waistline looks amazing. My scars will diminish with time and I’m good with that."

"Feeling attractive again after a mommy makeover - When I told my friends I wanted a mommy makeover, they were not very supportive. Just because I’m a mom doesn’t mean I should give up on my looks and myself. Before having 3 great kids, I felt attractive and sexy, somehow that started to slip away. I found Dr. Katzen online after consulting with 2 other plastic surgeons. Unlike the other surgeons, Dr. Katzen treated me like a patient and not just dollar signs. The day of surgery, I felt butterflies in my stomach. He assured me it was normal and calmed my nerves. He performed a tummy tuck, breast augmentation and lift. It’s been 2 months since surgery and I feel phenomenal. I’m getting my sexy back! Oh, and my husband is very happy with the results as well."

"I belong to a bariatric support group at Kaiser where we meet and talk about our weight loss, pros and cons. I’ve been successful at losing weight and living a much healthier life style. In total, I’ve lost 175 pounds. My insurance covered my tummy tuck surgery but denied a thigh lift. Several ladies in my group have had surgery with Dr. Katzen and they proudly shared their experiences. I asked two of them if they wouldn’t mind sharing their scars with me and they did. I was pleased to see how well their scars have healed but most importantly, the placement of the scars were not noticeable. I made my appointment with Dr. Katzen and without hesitation, I booked my surgery. I am very content with my thigh lift. I can see a gap in between my thighs. I used to have to wear a skirt or dress all the time, even when it’s cold because pants did not fit me right. Now, I enjoy wearing pants, leggings, and shorts. It’s a weird feeling to finally feel “normal”. I am embracing my new body. I am so glad to belong to a great support group that is open about their experiences. They lead me to Dr. Katzen. I am so grateful for him and his team. He’s very compassionate about helping us weight loss patients. Thank you Dr. Katzen from the bottom of my heart! You are amazing in every way."

"I moved from the East Coast to California last year. I’m not shy about having plastic surgery to enhance my looks. I’ve had breast augmentation and some fillers done in the past. Living in California, I see many beautiful faces and bodies. I love going to the beach! I’m not pleased with my abdominal area, it needs a little work. I researched many doctors and there’s so many of them in my local area. It seems there’s one in every corner!I scheduled 4 consultation appointments from my top picks. Dr. Katzen definitely stood out from the rest. He is highly skilled and personable. He spent time answering my questions and made me feel comfortable.I underwent an abdominoplasty with doctor Katzen and let me tell you, he truly is the BEST doctor. My tummy looks amazing, I cannot wait to rock my 2 piece bathing suit at the beach."
