Reviews for Breast Procedures Near Beverly Hills, CA

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

"Thrilled with my flat belly after years of carrying around the excess skin from a massive weight loss - Dr. Katzen and his team are absolutely wonderful. I had a 360 body lift and breast reduction four months ago and Dr. Katzen was super attentive during the entire healing process. I’m thrilled with my flat belly after years of carrying around the excess skin from a massive weight loss. Thank you, Dr. Katzen and team!"

"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 wonderful experience with Dr. Katzen! I had two surgeries performed by him. First, removal of raw silicone from my breasts. And secondly, breast reconstruction using Ideal Breast Implants. I can’t be happier! He is very knowledgeable with lots of experience and very professional in every way. He is the only one in the country who does raw silicone removal. It made me very comfortable using his services because he has a lot of pictures & videos of his surgeries and also, informational videos. So, you can see that he is a true expert in his area! Thank you Dr. Katzen for a wonderful work you do!"

"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."

"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."

"Supportive surgeon - he performed surgery with excellent results - My review is quite simple. I found a great surgeon that is supportive and performs surgery with excellent results. There are not enough words to describe how great Dr. Katzen really is. He performed breast augmentation with a lift on me."

"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!"

"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!"

"He not only fixed me physically, but also gave me higher self-esteem - I underwent gynecomastia surgery with the amazing Dr. Katzen. Dr. Katzen is such an incredible surgeon and human being. My entire life I felt super insecure about my large male breasts. Dr. Katzen not only fixed me physically, but he also gave me higher self-esteem."

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

"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."

"Real Self Has Been a Great Resource for Me - So thankful for Real Self for helping me find the perfect surgeon for breast augmentation with lift. I love that Real Self provides us with an abundance of information and we can choose to spend as much or little time as we want to research a surgeon. I found Dr. Katzen's profile page had everything I wanted to know about him and the procedures he offered."

"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."

"Lucky to be one of his patients - this doctor is a genius - You know you've hit the jackpot when you've discovered Dr. Katzen. For those of you who are lucky enough to be his patient, you know exactly what I am talking about. This man is a genius! He's so good at performing surgeries, I had an arm lift and breast lift. His demeanor is so kind, smart, genuine, and overall an amazing human being. He's done so much charity work for organizations that need him.

"Beautiful job with my breasts after implant taken out & replaced - I had breast implants put in over a decade ago. Back then, I had my bariatric surgeon perform my breast augmentation but I regretted it right away. I should have known better and should have gone to a plastic surgeon, but I figured I was so happy with my bariatric surgeon and he offered breast augmentation, I thought why not. After many years, I decided to have them taken out and replaced and had my breast done right. Dr. Katzen did a beautiful job with my breasts. I am so happy with him."

"50-year-old, just wanted breasts back in the same spot they used to be when I was much younger - I'm a 50-year-old female that had breasts that hung a little lower than they used to. LOLI sought out Dr. Timothy Katzen for a breast lift since I was happy with my size, I didn't care to have them larger, I just wanted them back in the same spot they used to be when I was much younger. Dr. Katzen just has this personality you can't help but love. He's easy to converse with, tentative, really nice, and overall such a great person. Dr. Katzen performed the breast lift and they are exactly how I hoped it would turn out. I'm so happy with my surgery and experience with Dr. Katzen."

"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."

"Beautiful Breast Augmentation with a Lift - I came to Dr. J. Timothy Katzen for a silicone breast augmentation with a lift. I went from a size B to a DD. When I had my initial consultation, Dr. Katzen asked how I envisioned my breasts to look, so I showed him a picture of a model where the shape was perfect. He had me try on some silicone implants to see what size I wanted. I am very pleased with the way my breasts look. They are full and back up to where they belong."

"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!"

"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."

"My surgery had immediate results and recovery was quick and easy - As a male, some of us suffer from having large male breast tissue. This issue caused me so much embarrassment, insecurity, and anxiety. When I am in public I usually have to wear a garment wrap to flatten my chest area. These garments are quite uncomfortable and I would sweat in them. I decided to undergo gynecomastia surgery aka male breast reduction. The nice thing about this surgery is the immediate results and recovery was quick and easy. Let's talk about my surgeon, Dr. Katzen. He is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. He's very interesting and fun to talk to and is as kind as others have described him. If I were to need any more surgeries in the future, he's definitely my go-to surgeon."

"Dr. Katzen is a great surgeon with a great personality. - When I hit 40 years old, I noticed a significant change in my body. One particular body part bothered me more than others, my breasts. My breasts started to sag and droop and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. I talked to my husband about me having a breast lift and augmentation, and he was all for it. Dr. Katzen in Beverly Hills is who I went with for my procedure. He is a great surgeon with a great personality. I now have DD breasts and they are back where they belong. :)."

"Gynecomastia Procedure, Highly Recommend - One of my insecurities growing up was being made fun of for having "man boobs". I was doomed since middle school and because of it, I never participated in sports. I am in my late 20's and had to do something about my condition. I turned to Dr. Katzen for help and had the gynecomastia procedure. Instantly after surgery, I felt renewed and different. My incisions on my chest are very small and Dr. Katzen said it should fade nicely. I highly recommend his practice."

"Had Breast Implants, Lift and Vertical Torsoplasty with Dr. Katzen - I can say I found myself the best plastic surgeon out there. I had silicone breast implants with lift and a vertical torsoplasty. Dr. Timothy Katzen was recommended to me by a close friend and I am so grateful for that. My friend and her sister had plastic surgery with Dr. Katzen last year so I trusted her recommendation wholeheartedly. My surgery was uneventful, which is always good. My recovery was fast and not as painful as I expected it to be. Dr. Katzen, his entire team of office staff, and surgical staff are so awesome. They made me feel warm and welcome with each encounter. Go check Dr. Katzen out, you'll be glad you did."

"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."

Breast Augmentation was something I've always wanted to do so I've been saving up for it. Two months ago I finally had the procedure (silicone implants) done with Dr. Katzen.

"After gynecomastia surgery, I feel confident and secure - I am glad to see many men post about gynecomastia surgery on here. It's a big issue for us men and there is help out there for us. I had male breast reduction after learning about Dr. Katzen's work on Instagram. He did a really good job on me. I was having self-esteem issues with my male breasts most of my adult life. I never felt comfortable wearing a fitting top or tank top, I always wore oversized shirts. You would never ever have caught me going shirtless at a beach or pool. After gynecomastia surgery, I feel confident and secure. I cleaned out my closet and got rid of all the oversized shirts and bought nice-fitting shirts. I even went shirtless to the beach last week and it felt great."

"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."

I felt it was time to do a little nip tuck to boost my body. I went to Dr. Katzen in Beverly Hills and got a tummy tuck and breast lift.

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

"No doubt I made the right choice for my VASER Lipo and Breast Lift - I'm currently on day 5 of post-op.I recently had Vaser Lipo on my arms, arm pits, full flanks and full legs as well as a Breast Lift (no implant) done by Dr. Katzen. This was 6 hour procedure and I went home same day with three drains, a catheter, and a pain pump in my compression garment. I'm pretty religious about my health - active weightlifter and eat to fuel my body on most days. I absolutely love my shape, and have been at my ideal weight multiple times, but it's nearly impossible to maintain without a constant calorie deficit and intense cardio. I've also tried CoolSculpting, but the small pockets of fat I had were too small to achieve results.My experience with Dr. Katzen as truly been stellar - one of the best doctors I've ever had in any specialty! He is a true professional and his staff are approachable, resourceful problem-solvers. You feel they are on your team and want to help, no request too big or small.I met with multiple doctors in LA, and Dr. Katzen stood out for many reasons, in particular his amazing results on arms and abs with VASER and that he could do a donut breast lift, which leaves no scar! He also keenly listened to what I wanted and set expectations well. He's bedside manner is lovely and I always look forward to seeing him.His pre-opp medical clearance was definitely the most compressive (asked for X-rays, EKG, Mammogram), which took a bit of time for me to get organized, but I appreciated his "no stone unturned" approach. Even the radiologist who reviewed my mammogram results said, "Wow, he must be a good surgeon."I was pretty nervous and stressed leading up to surgery and tried to prepare as much as possible. I highly recommend having someone to help with the first week, because you will essentially be bed ridden. I highly recommend getting a zero-gravity pillow for your bed that elevates your head and legs as well as puppy pads. Even though I was as prepared as a could be, the lipo pain is the worst pain I've ever had. The fact that you have to be bedridden for a week (or possibly more) is humbling and frustrating. It gets better each day, but don't try to be a hero and not take your painkillers. Again, TAKE YOUR PAIN MEDS. They recommended I start when I got in the car on the way home. Even on day 5, I can stand up but only with assistance and feel very lightheaded all the time. It's an intense surgery and will be intense for the person/people caring for you.The worst part is the soreness and tenderness. I can only compare it to when someone takes your blood pressure right before the release the machine - that feeling of pressure all over your body plus a bad sunburn.If I could go back now, I would have skipped my abs/flanks since they were the least of problem areas. It the most intense part and really causes the immobility. I've also gotten multiple stings/stocks in certain places when I need to move or get up and down. Also, drink and eat as much you can as soon as possible.I'll post some before and after pics soon. Right now it's just me, my peabag, and these drains against time."

"The results were immediate and I felt a load of bricks off of me right away. - Having large male breasts was a big problem for me. I didn't feel masculine and "not normal". You would never have caught me in a swimming pool or at the beach. My self-esteem was low and I had no self-confidence. I met Dr. Katzen at a conference years ago and saved his information for when I was ready. A couple of months ago, I underwent gynecomastia surgery. The results were immediate and I felt a load of bricks off of me right away.

"No More Man Boobs Thanks to Gynecomastia Surgery - I am a 27 year old male who weighed 337 pounds at my highest weight. With the help of gastric sleeve, I successfully lost 147 pounds.

With weight loss, the fat in my breasts went somewhat flat, but I had saggy skin and it looked really bad. I underwent gynecomastia surgery with Dr. Katzen and he made me feel manly again.

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."

"I’m very happy I chose Dr. Katzen to do my breast augmentation and lift. I did not want the fake, huge breast look. I wanted them to look natural. What I appreciate about Dr. Katzen is how honest and personable he is. I trusted him the minute I met him. I was feeling scared the morning of surgery, but Dr. Katzen and his team calmed my nerves. They are all so polite and professional. I am beyond satisfied with my results."

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

"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. I always felt I was able to hide my body under my clothes but there was no hiding my face. I feel a complete transformation. Dr. Katzen played every part in reconstructing my body and I love every part of it."

I was warned about the excessive skin after weight loss so I had already been searching for a surgeon who specializes in reconstructive plastic surgeries.

After 8 weeks, I went back to Dr. Katzen for an inner thigh lift. I plan to come back for the last stage, which is breast augmentation and brachioplasty (done at the same time).

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

The next day, I called two offices to schedule consultations. First appointment was with Dr. Katzen and that was all I needed, I cancelled the other office.

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.

"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.

"Loving my Enhanced Look. - Many of my friends have had some kind of cosmetic work done and they keep looking better and better. I’m new to this and felt extremely nervous about having anything done. I took baby steps and had botox, I loved it. Then I got more brave and scheduled a breast augmentation. I didn’t go too crazy with the size and wanted to look more natural. I told Dr. Katzen while I was under anesthesia if he could do a chemical peel as well. I am loving my new look. I don’t look “plastic”, just enough enhancements to notice a big improvement in my look. I dress differently now and noticed I have a little extra confidence with myself.

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.

"Insurance Covered my Breast Reduction - I got my insurance to pay for my breast reduction with Dr. Katzen due to the pain I experienced with my large breasts. I told Dr. Katzen I wanted to be a a large C, he agreed that would look good on my body frame. Since breast reduction, I am relieved from shoulder and neck pain. I can fit into tops with no problems. Life is good."

"Dr. Katzen Turned my 54 Year Old Body into a 20 Year Old Body - I am completely blown away by Dr. Katzen's work. I came to him with a 54 year old body and he turned back time on my body. I had an extended tummy tuck with the hour glass tightening and the saddlebags removed. In addition, I had breast implants with breast lift. I just returned from vacation in Maui where I wore my first two piece swimsuit."

"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."

"Image is everything in my career. - I am a young female actor trying my best to make it in the industry. I’ve gotten a few small roles here and there but I’d like to land bigger jobs. I know my image is everything so I decided to get abdomen liposuction and breast implants. I searched “Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon” and was overwhelmed with all the options that popped up. I carefully researched the surgeons and felt completely comfortable with Dr. J. Timothy Katzen. What’s great about Dr. Katzen is, he shares tons of videos of the procedures he performs on his website, social media and Real Self. He also shares many stories of his post op patients saying how happy they are with him. I belong to his “happy patient” club now too. I hope my new body and new found confidence will help me in my career path."

"Excellent results and great care from Dr. Katzen (breast lift surgery) - I naturally had large breasts, but that came with problems as I got older. My breasts were heading south and it wasn't pretty. Dr. Katzen preformed a breast lift and put them back where they are supposed to be. He did a really good job. Dr. Katzen is attentive and friendly. Every visit, he remembers all the things we talked about (from surgery stuff to life adventures) and pick up from there. He's awesome."

"Review for male breast reduction - This is a topic I am not comfortable with, but I wanted to share my experience since it is relatable. I developed male breast that made me look and feel out of place. I never felt masculine or attractive because of them. I didn’t know how it was like to enjoy a pool party or have a beach day with the guys. Thankfully, Real Self has so much information about this topic and it helped me find Dr. Katzen. Dr. Katzen is professional and made me feel comfortable. He removed the excess skin and tissue to give me normal, flat, male breasts. I no longer feel embarrassed or self conscious about my body image. This surgery has given me a boost of self confidence."

"Body makeover after major weight loss - After losing a major amount of weight, I decided I had to do something about all my excess skin. I spent countless hours in the gym but it didn’t help my skin. 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. I am scheduled for an arm lift and breast lift later this year with Dr. Katzen. He is someone I fully trust."

"My Dream Body is Finally a Reality - 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."

"Silicone Breast Aug and Abdominoplasty with an AMAZING Surgeon. - I had a mommy makeover and I’m not even a mom (LOL). I wanted a tummy tuck and breast augmentation. I found Dr. Katzen online and was impressed with his background and training. I then found many great reviews and talked to one of his patients through Facebook private messaging. His patient strongly recommended him, so I proceeded forward with surgery. I have since been Facebook friends with this gal. She helped me through my recovery. Dr. Katzen did an amazing job on my “mommy makeover”."

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

"Not embarrassed to take my shirt off at the beach after gynecomastia surgery. - I’m a dad of two beautiful young daughters. Our favorite family activity is to go to the beach. I usually do not take off my shirt because I am too embarrassed about my man boobs. Even with a shirt on, if I get wet in the water, everyone can see how large and disproportionate my chest was. I spent many hours finding a plastic surgeon that has experience with gynecomastia surgery. I found Dr. Katzen and he’s done many of these surgeries. Surgery was fast and recovery was easy. My biggest regret is not doing this sooner. Dr. Katzen has given me a confidence boost. I am able to relax and enjoy myself better."

"Breast Lift. My Nipples Are No Longer Pointing Down. - I’m just entering my 50’s and my body has been noticeably changing. My breasts are droopy and my nipples are pointing south, not a very attractive visual. Thank goodness for Victoria Secret’s bras, my breasts look ok in clothes. I decided it was time to get a breast lift. My co-worker went to Dr. Katzen for plastic surgery and was really happy with her tummy tuck. She referred me to him. I had a breast lift and I love it. The “girls” are perky and perfect. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Katzen. He is an absolutely amazing surgeon."

"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. 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."

"Natural Looking Breasts - I’m very happy I chose Dr. Katzen to do my breast augmentation and lift. I did not want the fake, huge breast look. I wanted them to look natural. What I appreciate about Dr. Katzen is how honest and personable he is. I trusted him the minute I met him. I was feeling scared the morning of surgery, but Dr. Katzen and his team calmed my nerves. They are all so polite and professional. I am beyond satisfied with my results."

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

"42 year old, Breast Augmentation with Lift - I’m 42 years old with breasts that were starting to droop. I found Dr. Katzen on Real Self and saw that he was offering a special on breast augmentation so I went for it, since I’ve always longed for fuller breasts. Dr. Katzen was a pleasure to meet. He’s personable and great at what he does. I was lucky to catch a good deal with a great surgeon. Win win for me!"

"After having gastric bypass surgery and losing 220 pounds, I was left with a lot of excess skin. In October 2016, I had a consultation with Dr Katzen. I immediately knew he was the one. Dr Katzen is very professional, courteous and he listens. He clearly explained to me what he could do and what I could expect. So in January 2017, I had my 360 Body Lift procedure. When He removed the bandages about a week after the procedure, I almost cried. I looked down and all that hanging skin was gone. It wasn’t pain free but the pain was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. In May 2017. I had a male breast reduction and back procedure. I followed doctor’s ordered and my recovery went smoothly. I highly recommend Dr Katzen and his amazing team."

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

"Gynecomastia - Being obese most of my life has left me with some unsightly body parts. Two years ago I decided to change my lifestyle to eat healthier and put myself on a strict workout schedule. I successfully lost 200 pounds. I looked good in clothes but underneath were my “man boobs”. I was embarrassed to talk about it with anyone. I researched several doctors and decided to go with Dr. Katzen. He is straight to the point and very easy to work with. He’s done many other patients with similar problems as mine. He did a great job with the gynecomastia surgery. My only regret is I wished I would have done this sooner."

"Beach body ready...breast augmentation - Living in Southern California, I’ve dreamed of a perfect beach body. The girls in my family all have small breasts. I didn’t want anything crazy, just a size C. Dr. Katzen had me try on several implants and I carefully selected one that looks right for my body frame. I love how it changes my look. I feel different in all my clothes. I bought my first two piece bikini and looking forward to the beach this summer, maybe sooner."

"Dr. Katzen restored my botched breast job - I made the biggest mistake when I allowed my bariatric surgeon to perform reconstructive surgery on me. He did a great job with the gastric bypass but he botched my breast augmentation, my breasts were completely lopsided and not perky. When I went to see Dr. Katzen, he gave me hope that he can fix what the other surgeon did. He made my breasts look perky and even. I should have spent more time researching the right plastic surgeon to begin with. So glad Dr. Katzen was able to fix me."
