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! More

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

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

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

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

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

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. More

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

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

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. More

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. More

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

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. More

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

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

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. More

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. :). More

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. More

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. More

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. More

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

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. More

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

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

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

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. More

As a man, I can live with having a small gut, but not large male breasts - Gynecomastia is the only plastic surgery I have longed to have. As a man, I can live with having a small gut on me, but having large male breasts is something I cannot live with. I know that sounds bad, but the psychological effects it had on me were not good. I want to share my experience with Dr. Katzen and his team. Dr. Katzen is a perfectionist and extremely professional. His staff... More

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. I can't describe how great it feels to not have my "man boobs" anymore. I am excited to be able to go to the beach and water parks this summer and do other things I was too embarrassed to do.  More

Beautiful Breast Augmentation, Thank You Dr. Katzen! - I was interested in breast augmentation. When I consulted with Dr. Katzen, he made things quite simple for me. He asked me to send him a picture of how I wanted my breasts to look and what size I wanted. All I can say is, he did a beautiful job on my breast augmentation.

Male Breast Reduction with the Best Surgeon in Beverly Hills - I had male breast reduction with the best surgeon I could imagine. Dr. Timothy Katzen is located in Beverly Hills. Due to covid, I had my initial consultation via Skype, which was great because it saved me over 3 hours drive time. My gynecomastia surgery was only a few short hours and I went back to the comfort of my own home the same day. Pain was very minimal but I usually have a high tolerance for pain. I recovered very quickly with no issues whatsoever. I am very happy with my surgery and my experience. More

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. When I was heavier, I had these horrible man boobs, but somehow it didn't bother me as much as it did after I lost the weight. 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. He's done many gynecomastia surgeries and is obviously very good at it. Highly recommend! More

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

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

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

Dr. Timothy Katzen was my choice for breast augmentation. He is honest, does not pressure you to book surgery. He is attentive and has amazing bedside manners, the entire time under his care. He offers free first consultation. I am delighted with the service and outcome. He has office locations in Vegas and Beverly Hills. I originally saw him in Vegas and drove to Beverly Hills for the surgery. Loving my new boobies. More

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

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’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. More

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.

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. More

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. More

Gynecomastia Surgery Changed my Life. - I usually don’t like to discuss my insecurities with anyone, but hopefully, by sharing this, I can help someone. I had large man breasts that made me feel ashamed and not confident. They were large and they were not the same size. As a man, it messes with my head and I was not okay with that. When I met with Dr. Katzen, he said it’s common and he’s done many gynecomastia procedures on men. Well, my surgery couldn’t have gone better and healing was a breeze. Instantly after surgery, I already feel different. It’s a feeling of relief that I can finally be a normal man. More

Even my face aged by at least 15-20 years. I had many surgeries with Dr. Katzen: body lift, mons reduction, arm lift, breast lift and aug, thigh lift and torsoplasty. My most recent surgery was a facelift and neck lift. It was also the most noticeable and gratifying surgery of them all. I always felt I was able to hide my body under my clothes but there was no hiding my face. I feel a complete transformation. Dr. Katzen played every part in reconstructing my body and I love every part of it. More

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

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

Manliness Restored After Male Breast Reduction - The shame I often felt with male enlarged breasts was hard to deal with. I couldn’t wear normal shirts or tank tops. Beach or pool days were non existent. I had an undergarment I wore when out in public so my breasts would look flatter. As a man, this messes with my manliness. One night I was browsing the internet to buy a new undergarment and came across stories of other men with large breasts. They showed their before picture and after surgery picture. 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. He explained the male breast reduction procedure to me and discussed what to expect. Everything went according to plan. Dr. Katzen has no idea how much he has done 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.

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 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.

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

I’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. More

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. More

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”. More

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

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. More

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. More

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. More

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

Breast Augmentation, Beverly Hills, CA - Two of my friends have had breast augmentation. They are proud of their breasts and had no problem showing me how perfect and perky they are. Deep down, I always wanted my breasts to look like theirs, but I didn't have extra money sitting around.

As a physician, medical expertise is important. As a patient, bedside manner is equally important. I was as nervous as anyone else would be deciding to have cosmetic surgery, especially after going back and forth on my decision to actually have two procedures done at the same time for almost 10 years. Though the post-op process wasn’t always easy, especially for someone who isn’t used to sitting still, Dr. Katzen eased my concerns after each post-op appointment. Now that it’s almost three months later, I absolutely love the results of my breast augmentation and VASER liposuction. He gave me abs and I looooooove it! His staff were also top notch and very helpful through my entire journey. More

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. More

My name is Citlalli Cruz, I did a lot of research on breast augmentation with different doctors but found myself very comfortable with Dr. Katzen and his staff. He helped me choose the perfect size for me and I loved it, booked my procedure which happened to be my first ever and results are great. Recovery time was fast and I feel very good, my breasts look very natural, I love the results and the confidence that this procedure has given me. I can wear all types of outfits and feel amazing with my new look, thanks Dr. Katzen and staff! More

Five years ago, I had weight loss surgery and lost over 200 lbs. I had a significant amount of sagging skin all over (tummy, back, legs, chest). Over the course of a few years, I consulted with a few surgeons but I wasn’t able to make a decision. Late last year, I attended the Obesity Help conference and met Dr. Katzen. I immediately knew he was going to be my surgeon. I felt comfortable and he was very honest about what my expectations should be. He said it would take 2 separate surgeries to reconstruct my body. Earlier this year, I had the body lift and healed nicely. After a week, I came back for my 1st check up. Dr. Katzen removed my bandages, I couldn’t believe my sagging belly, love handles and other parts disappeared. I don’t remember ever having a flat belly. I returned to work in 6 weeks as expected. Two months ago, I returned to Dr. Katzen to have a male breast reduction and back surgery. This surgery was in and out and I healed quickly. My chest is masculine and flat and my back looks amazing. I went back to work in 3 weeks. Dr. Katzen is truly an artist and is remarkable! He understands the struggles of a weight loss patient. He’s patient and takes the time to answer the questions I had for him. His staff is understanding and kind. Dr. Katzen gives us the body we can only dream about. I’m lucky to have found him, he’s changed me for the better. More

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. More

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. More

I had gastric bypass surgery November 2015. After weight loss, I went to Dr. Katzen for the works: body lift, thigh lift, arm lift and breast augmentation. 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 entire body. Thank you so much Dr. Katzen!!!!! More

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 never thought I’d be one to have a boob job but it happened. I’m in my late 40’s and the girls were not as perky as they used to be. I considered going to Mexico to get them done since pricing was so good but backed out when a friend of mine shared her story of how things went so wrong. I went on Real Self to do some digging to see which surgeon is the best. Dr. Katzen along a few others stood out as top contenders. I made three appointments. Dr. Katzen was the first one and I felt comfortable instantly. I told him I had two other appointments and to be fair, I wanted to check them out before making my final decision. I went to the other surgeons and felt all three were well qualified but Dr. Katzen stood out the most. His credentials, experience and results were ranked high on my list. He’s also very down to earth, and kind, something you rarely see from surgeons. He’s also very genuine and personable, he remembers our conversations. My boobs are perfect. I’m so glad I had them done. Check him out if you’re looking for any kind of plastic surgery. More

I was in 4th grade when I started developing large breasts. By the time I got to high school they were HUGE, painfully huge. I developed neck and back pain and suffered bra straps grooves that left red indentation on my shoulders. I’ve always wanted a breast reduction but couldn’t afford it. I joined the 40’s club and my breasts started to sag, it was not a pretty sight. I found Dr. Katzen and had a consultation with him. His office manager gave me a quote the same day so I applied for Care Credit and got approved. I had my breast reduction and it has relieved so much pain for me. Dr. Katzen did nice job on my breasts. More

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!

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. More

I noticed many billboards and advertisements offering great pricing. This made me question why they would offer such cheap pricing. I researched them and found many of these offices and centers have surgeons who are not board certified plastic surgeons which made me feel uneasy. I realized I am not looking for the best deal, I wanted a skilled surgeon. I was at a hospital for something else and happened to ask if they can recommend a plastic surgeon to me. They gave me Dr. Katzen’s name. I looked him up and was pleased to find out he is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. The moment I met him, I felt secure and comfortable.

Body Lift Was A Necessity For Me - I lost 200 lbs after having gastric bypass surgery. I felt healthy but I couldn’t bare to see all my excess skin. It was a constant reminder of the old me, the obese me. I needed to take care of my skin issues for my own self esteem and for hygiene issues. It was such a process to keep myself dry and clean on a daily basis. I found this incredible doctor that understands me and my problems. He is upfront and honest about what to expect. I underwent a body lift and it is way better than what I expected. My excision goes all the way around my waist and it took care the excess skin in my abdomen, lateral thighs, hips, and buttocks. He also gave me a smaller waist with some internal sewing. I still need to have my inner thighs and arms done, maybe even a breast lift. I would not go to anyone else but Dr. Katzen. More

He had done hundreds of patients who had weight loss surgery just like me. I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen last year. He transformed my body, better than I hoped for. I tell him he has magical hands. I had such a great experience with him, I returned for an arm lift and breast augmentation with lift. I look back at my old pictures and can't believe how my body has changed so much. I'm in my 40's now, I didn't look this good even in my 20's. My clothes fit me well. I am no longer wearing baggy clothes to hide my excess skin. Life has truly changed all thanks to Dr. Katzen. More

I had the works: Body Lift, Liposuction, Thigh Lift, Arm Lift and Breast Augmentation with the best surgeon. - After losing 141 pounds, I found my life is not the same. Since weight loss, I got a better job, better self esteem and became healthier. I worked out 3-5 times a week and made better food choices. With the changes I made, I still had excess sagging skin. I started my journey with Dr. Katzen and had a 360 body lift and staged liposuction in my legs. After 4 months, I returned and had a thigh lift. Then, 5 months later, I had brachioplasty and arm lift. Dr. Katzen has been so wonderful from the first surgery to my most recent one. He is a true artist that sculpted my body into what it is today. I trusted him and I trusted all the recommendations that he gave me. I felt very comfortable with him. He’s very well known in the weight loss groups. If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight like I did, go check out Dr. Katzen. He offers free consultations in his offices. He’s an expert at treating patients like us. I look and feel oh so good! More

Perfect size breast implant, I look and feel amazing! - My name is Citlalli Cruz, I did a lot of research on breast augmentation with different doctors but found myself very comfortable with Dr. Katzen and his staff.

Recovery time was fast and I feel very good, my breasts look very natural, I love the results and the confidence that this procedure has given me.

Dr. Katzen transformed my whole body. Lucky to have found him! - Five years ago, I had weight loss surgery and lost over 200 lbs. I had a significant amount of sagging skin all over (tummy, back, legs, chest). Over the course of a few years, I consulted with a few surgeons but I wasn’t able to make a decision. Late last year, I attended the Obesity Help conference and met Dr. Katzen. I immediately knew he was going to be my surgeon. I felt comfortable and he was very honest about what my expectations should be. He said it would take 2 separate surgeries to reconstruct my body. Earlier this year, I had the body lift and healed nicely. After a week, I came back for my 1st check up. Dr. Katzen removed my bandages, I couldn’t believe my sagging belly, love handles and other parts disappeared. I don’t remember ever having a flat belly. I returned to work in 6 weeks as expected. Two months ago, I returned to Dr. Katzen to have a male breast reduction and back surgery. This surgery was in and out and I healed quickly. My chest is masculine and flat and my back looks amazing. I went back to work in 3 weeks. Dr. Katzen is truly an artist and is remarkable! He understands the struggles of a weight loss patient. He’s patient and takes the time to answer the questions I had for him. His staff is understanding and kind. Dr. Katzen gives us the body we can only dream about. I’m lucky to have found him, he’s changed me for the better. More

Late 40’s, perfect breasts after breast augmentation with silicone implants. - I never thought I’d be one to have a boob job but it happened. I’m in my late 40’s and the girls were not as perky as they used to be. I considered going to Mexico to get them done since pricing was so good but backed out when a friend of mine shared her story of how things went so wrong. I went on Real Self to do some digging to see which surgeon is the best. Dr. Katzen along a few others stood out as top contenders. I made three appointments. Dr. Katzen was the first one and I felt comfortable instantly. I told him I had two other appointments and to be fair, I wanted to check them out before making my final decision. I went to the other surgeons and felt all three were well qualified but Dr. Katzen stood out the most. His credentials, experience and results were ranked high on my list. He’s also very down to earth, and kind, something you rarely see from surgeons. He’s also very genuine and personable, he remembers our conversations. My boobs are perfect. I’m so glad I had them done. Check him out if you’re looking for any kind of plastic surgery. More

42 year old, loving my tummy tuck! - 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. More

Great Deal on Mommy Makeover Special on RealSelf with Dr. Katzen. - I had seen a mommy makeover special with Dr. Katzen on Real Self and called his office for a consult appointment. The deal sounded great but I wanted to check it out. I noticed Dr. Katzen answers a lot of questions on RealSelf and I liked how he comes across. When I met him, he was warm and compassionate. He’s obviously very experienced based on the many albums of before and after pictures in his office. I proceeded to have a tummy tuck and breast augmentation with Dr. Katzen and I am healing nicely. I chose silicone implants because they felt and looked more natural than the saline implants. I can’t wait to dress up and shop for new clothes again. It’s been a long time waiting. More

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. More

I’ve been searching months for a plastic surgeon to do a breast augmentation on me. I noticed many billboards and advertisements offering great pricing. This made me question why they would offer such cheap pricing. I researched them and found many of these offices and centers have surgeons who are not board certified plastic surgeons which made me feel uneasy. I realized I am not looking for the best deal, I wanted a skilled surgeon. I was at a hospital for something else and happened to ask if they can recommend a plastic surgeon to me. They gave me Dr. Katzen’s name. I looked him up and was pleased to find out he is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. The moment I met him, I felt secure and comfortable. My surgery was a success, I love how I look and feel. Thank you Dr. Katzen for your skills and care. You’ve changed my life. More

Sag No More! Tummy Tuck, Breast Reduction, Arm Lift and Torsoplasty - Beverly Hills, CA - I had several consults with plastic surgeons that were unsatisfactory prior to consulting with Dr. Katzen. All of them told me that they cannot complete my needs, except Dr. Katzen. I had so much hope and confidence and he came through with amazing results. Dr. Katzen specializes in patients who have lost a large amount of weight so he was able to fix many of my excess skin problems.I’ve had gastric bypass surgery and lost 116 pounds. With weight loss, I was left with sagging skin all over: my tummy, arms, breast, etc. I felt my whole body sagged. I had multiple surgeries with Dr. Katzen. I had an abdominoplasty, breast reduction, arm lift and torsoplasty. I am very appreciative of everything Dr. Katzen has done for me. He is a very gifted surgeon. He’s also very kind and remarkable.

My Results Are Perfect, Plus No Keloids! - Beverly Hills, CA - The idea of having plastic surgery never crossed my mind, it just wasn’t something I thought I would ever have done. A few years ago, I lost 125 pounds and felt great. I was more energetic and felt like my younger self. I dealt with my sagging skin by wearing compression garments, I had drawers full of them. They were not comfortable at all. After some time, I felt like I couldn’t live it these garments any longer. I started to research some surgeons and found Dr. Katzen, he met all my requirements that I was searching for. He is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has done many patients with my body type. Because of my dark skin, I was concerned about keloids. Dr. Katzen is very methodical and took all measures to prevent them. I had a tummy tuck and breast augmentation (with lift). My results turned out perfect! My husband, who has met me when I was heavier, is constantly complimenting how great I look. He’s always been supportive throughout my journey. He too, is very impressed with Dr. Katzen’s work. More

He was very genuine, patient & kind to me before & after the surgery.

Trust me I needed it after giving birth to 3 huge babies who are now 8, 6 & an almost 4yrs old. My boobs were in 2 different places, saline bags up high, skin & nipples were way saggy & low, my tummy would rest on my legs when I sit.

Gynecomastia - Beverly Hills, CA - I was 350 pounds at my highest weight. I knew I was spiraling out of control. I met someone who inspired me to lose weight and live a healthier life. I knew I had to make some drastic changes to become healthier. I started being more active and ate better. After a couple of years, I finally felt I got my weight in a normal range. In general I looked great but I ended up with excess skin and fat in my breasts. I did not feel comfortable in tight shirts or going to the beach or pool without a shirt. For a man, that’s a big deal. I had gynecomastia surgery and it’s changed my life. I have new found confidence. I can wear tight shirts now. I can’t wait for my incisions to completely heal so I can go to the pool and beach without a shirt. More

I first met Dr. Katzen about three years ago while working at a hospital. I have always been a very modest person and was very nervous about my appointment. I was amazed at how Dr. Katzen made me feel so comfortable. I truly never expected to be treated as well as he treated me, as he does all his patients. He does not make you feel rushed or hurried as some Dr.’s do. He listens and takes everything you have to say under great consideration. He listens to your fears and addresses them. Not to mention he has the best bedside manner and never makes you feel abnormal. Dr. Katzen has performed several procedures on me; Breast lift with augmentation and implants, Brachioplasty (upper arm lift), medial thigh lift, removal of Spider veins, and removal of a cyst (neuroma) on my left wrist. These procedures were done during two separate surgeries. Dr. Katzen would not risk doing all procedures at one time. His first and main concern is safety for his patients and sticks by that. Before going under anesthesia, my request to Dr. Katzen was to make my thighs extremely tight.  Be careful what you wish for, I have now been known to have the tightest thighs in Southern California! His aftercare was amazing. He is there for you all the time. You can call him directly with questions and he will see you if needed whenever possible. His staff was always there for me too. His expertise in pain management also helped in my recovery. More

My healthy life began when I had my gastric bypass surgery. Prior to the surgery I was on 11 different medications to control my diabetes and elevated blood pressure. I lost 130 lbs and was taken off all my medications. I started exercising a couple of months after the surgery to try to keep the skin from sagging, but it did not work. I then decided to have plastic surgery, a tummy tuck and breast reduction and breast lift.The gastric bypass surgery gave me a chance to live a healthier and longer life, which was the main reason for the surgery. I loved the change to my body and the fact that I could shop in the normal size clothes department. People no longer looked at me as a fat person but a normal person. I travel a lot with work and now I no longer needed the seat beat extension, that in itself was a great day. Even though I looked better in clothes I still saw the problem with the sagging skin.At this point I decided to start checking into plastic surgery. I went to 5 or 6 different doctors and finally decided to choose Dr. Timothy Katzen. Dr. Katzen specialized in weight loss patients and was familiar with the issues that surround us. I felt that he cared about his patients and listened to what I had to say.  I also, felt he had a supportive staff and that was important to me.  I had my tummy tuck and breast reduction and lift.At the recovery center I saw my new body for the first time and cried. I have never had a flat stomach and “perky” breasts. My life has only gotten better since the plastic surgery, I am now proud of my body, I may not be the smallest in the room but I feel like I am. Three months following the surgery I went on a 12 day cruise and Dr. Katzen encouraged me to get a bikini, which I did. It was so much fun looking at swimsuits that I would never had worn before. I wore it and did not feel I had to cover up my body and hide. I did wear my sunscreen to the parts of my body that never saw the sun.I am so thankful for the confidence that I have now as a result of the weight loss and the new body Dr. Katzen has given me.I can never thank him and his staff for the change in my life and the continued support.

My healthy life began when I had my gastric bypass surgery. Prior to the surgery I was on 11 different medications to control my diabetes and elevated blood pressure. I lost 130 lbs and was taken off all my medications. I started exercising a couple of months after the surgery to try to keep the skin from sagging, but it did not work. I then decided to have plastic surgery, a tummy tuck and breast reduction and breast lift.The gastric bypass surgery gave me a chance to live a healthier and longer life, which was the main reason for the surgery. I loved the change to my body and the fact that I could shop in the normal size clothes department. People no longer looked at me as a fat person but a normal person. I travel a lot with work and now I no longer needed the seat beat extension, that in itself was a great day.

So, how do you get to be 393 lbs and not play professional football? I also forgot to say that I was a 22 year old woman. I made the decision to have gastric bypass surgery and have not been the same person ever since. After losing 248lbs in a short period of time I found myself with a BIG problem, way too much skin.”I was referred to this doctor that turned out to be a saint, his name is Dr. Katzen. I have had a number of surgeries and lost over 18 – 20 pounds of skin. You know about 80 quarter pounders. The procedures include; Breast lift with augmentation and implants, Brachioplasty (upper arm lift) and a Circumferential Body Lift. I still have one more procedure left, a Thigh Lift. I would not think of going any where else but to Dr. Katzen.Why Dr. Katzen? He is an intelligent, patient and caring doctor that makes you feel like you are his only patient in life. He is a tireless professional that you can call in the middle of the night when you are in pain. He never has a bad day when it comes to dealing with patients. He said he would make me a new person and he did. It is nice to turn heads.Since going though all of this I have made the second most important decision of my life. I got married to the man of my dreams. I told Dr. Katzen that without what he has done for me that I would not have had the confidence to fall in love and open myself up. He gave me that confidence.I said earlier that I see Dr. Katzen as a saint and you will too after spending time with him. More

I had bariatric surgery and lost 125 lbs. I was so excited to have lost this much weight but so disappointed that my weight loss had a great deal of residual hanging skin. I had to wear loose blouses and pants to hide all the skin that was left over from losing weight so quickly. I attended a seminar and had a consultation with Dr. Katzen the same day. I had my first surgery exactly one year after my gastric bypass. I had a circumferential body lift and a medial thigh lift. My second surgery was a breast lift, and quite a bit of liposuction. Three weeks ago I had a TCA peel on my face and I am hoping to have another peel or some laser treatment.My experience with Dr. Katzen has always been very positive. I knew when I first consulted with him that I had met the surgeon I had been looking for. First of all, he has the proper credentials I was looking for.Dr. Katzen specializes in post op bariatric surgery patients and sculpturing the patient’s body while removing all the hanging skin. My only concern was my age since I am almost 64 but he said no problem as long as I was healthy. I asked if I was his oldest patient and he quickly replied no, his oldest patient was in his 70’s!I think you gain a lot of confidence just by going into his exam rooms. Each room is filled with diplomas and certificates on all the walls. Aside from all this, Dr. Katzen has a very gentle spirit and is a good listener. Do not be timid in asking him anything that may be bothering you because he always has the right answer. He genuinely cares about each patient and he makes you feel like you are the only one he has but then we all know how busy he is. He is always available to his patients. His staff is very competent and professional. They will get you the answer you need very quickly. I now can ride my bike for 6-7 miles and not even feel tired. I swim daily, I lift my grandchildren up in my arms. My husband and I have always wanted to take scuba diving lessons but I refused to get into a wet suit. Now I have nothing to hold me back. I believe that God has blessed Dr. Katzen with amazing talent and I am so very thankful that I was lead to find him. So I say to him again, muchas gracias Dr. Katzen. More

I have been “the fat girl” my entire life. I knew from the time I was 6 years old that I had an eating disorder that I allowed to control my life and get me binging on food uncontrollably. My life has been unmanageable and my sanity level as been nonexistent. I would eat food out of the trash if no one was looking. I have gained and lost over 1000 pounds on diets that just didn’t work. After being told that I “look like two of you from behind, Melissa” I just couldn’t stand it anymore. I became desperate and was told that I needed to gain another 20 pounds before I would be a candidate for any type of weight loss surgery. I began what would be the final binge on my way to WLS. I gained the weight but was told I was still not a candidate. Finally, I went through another means, when I was 26 years old to start loosing weight. My choice was a spiritually based program and I can happily tell you that G-d and I have given away 110 pounds. I worked so hard on why I eat what I eat and fixing me from the inside out. I decided that this would have to be a lifestyle choice and not a means of losing weight. I have been doing this for just about 9 years now and I was able to keep the weight off. After 7 years of working a strict food plan, I finally started working out and found a love of it that I just could NEVER get before. I knew that my choice to make this a new lifestyle was sealed. Now it was time to seek out the perfect surgeon that would understand me…….I started my search and spoke with 5 different doctors all chosen by a means of referral. I had 2 different people tell me about Dr. Katzen. I went and saw him a few years ago and had a body estimate done. Because of family/life circumstances, I had to put my plans on my body overhaul on hold. Finally, in February, I went back to him again and said, “I am READY!!” I was pleased when he noticed my attempts at working out and told me that the leg lift we had discussed in the past was no longer necessary. A doctor that didn’t want to do something unnecessary? I knew I was in the right place. (By the way, when my surgery actually happened and I was under, Dr. Katzen determined that I also did not need the breast lift which shorten my surgery by 1 ½ hours AND put money back in my pocket.)My surgery took place 1 month later. I was scheduled for 9 hours of surgery which included: abdominoplasty, breast lift and augmentation, and liposuction. I had NEVER had any surgery in my entire life and Dr. Katzen and his staff assured me that I would come out just fine. They shared their own experiences with me as far as their own cosmetic surgeries were concerned. Dr. Katzen was there for me as were his staff. If I needed anything, they all went above and beyond the call of duty, whether it was in the middle of the night or on a Saturday shipping a new garment to me during their day off. I received phone calls checking on me constantly as well as well wishes and words of encouragement. I just knew that I chose the right doctor for the job. His compassion and bedside manner is second to none. I have given his name and number to many people I know since then. The main reason I chose Dr. Katzen was because he understood the journey that this former fat girl made from the woman lost in skin to a beautiful swan. It was more than just the mommy make over. I was completing the transformation with an emotional choice that has since then changed my life and I am SOOOO grateful to Dr. Katzen for his beautiful work and his beautiful heart. More

My experience with Dr. Katzen has been an extremely positive one. He performed breast reconstruction surgery on me because of prior breast cancer surgery, I had a ruptured implant and pain on the other side (from another doctor). Dr.Katzen replaced both implants so evenly they are 100% better and look prefect. You need that for your self confidence. I can't thank him enough for making me whole again. Also everyone on his staff has gone out of their way to fulfill my request and needs. I am sincerely grateful. More
