A well deserved 5-star rating! - I usually don't do reviews but I need to share this gem of a surgeon. You don't expect a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon to be humble but Dr. Katzen is. He is kind and fun to hold a conversation with. He has so many interesting travel stories that he shared with me, as I did with him. I had a neck lift with Dr. Katzen and the result is exactly what I prayed it would be. He listened well and executed well. I had no problem giving Dr. Katzen a well deserved 5-star rating. More

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. More

Great surgeon for a face lift and neck lift - I'm 49 years young but my face looked older. I needed a face lift and neck lift. The decision in choosing a good plastic surgeon was crucial. After going to four different plastic surgeons, all in Beverly Hills, I confidently went with Dr. Katzen. I am thankful Dr. Katzen made me look 10 years younger than my age. More

I was months shy of turning 50 years old and the signs of aging was showing on my face and neck. I spent many hours researching a good surgeon and consulted with a total of 4 surgeons. Dr. Katzen was my clear top choice. I underwent a face lift and neck lift. I get many compliments about how much younger I look. More

Neck Liposuction by Timothy Katzen, MD (Beverly Hills, CA) - My neck gave me major insecurities. I booked a free consultation with Dr. Katzen’s office to see what my options were. I was amazingly surprised when Dr. Katzen said he could take care of my problem by neck liposuction. He showed me some pictures of his patients who underwent the same procedure and I was blown away by the results. What I love about Dr. Katzen is, he didn’t try to sell me more procedures than what I needed. I told him what bothered me and he came up with a plan and solution. My neck looks amazing all thanks to Dr. Katzen. More

Former Obese Body, Now Transformed - Ever wonder what a former obese body looks like after massive weight loss? It's not pretty. My skin is all shriveled up like an elephant's skin. Thank goodness for surgeons like Dr. Katzen who can fix me. Dr. Katzen is a renowned surgeon whose specialty is weight loss patients. He does miraculous things to our bodies, things I thought would never look normal again. I had a 360 bodylift, thigh lift, breast augmentation with lift, arm lift, and neck lift with Dr. Katzen (not all at once). I am beyond thrilled with what Dr. Katzen has done for me. There simply isn't enough words to tell him how thankful I am. More

A Little Touch Up Before my Son's Wedding in April - I was frustrated with people asking me if I was was tired all the time. No, I'm not, I'm getting old. I have wrinkles and my eyelids are drooping. My only son is getting married in April 2019, and I wanted to spruce my look before his wedding day. Dr. Katzen did an upper blepharoplasty, and a chemical peel on my face. People look at me now and they say I look good but I don't reveal what I had done. I look younger and feel refreshed. Dr. Katzen did such a great job. More

I feel young and refreshed after neck lift. - I lost weight through healthy eating and exercise. Much of my body bounced back nicely, but my neck was loose and looked “old”. I underwent a neck lift with Dr. Katzen. Surgery was quick and easy, recovery was not bad at all. Dr. Katzen went above and beyond with his time and care. Dr. Katzen and his staff did not make me feel rushed during my appointments, both pre and post op. My neck looks spectacular! My family all say I look younger and refreshed. More

Silicone Removal from Lips - I had silicone put in my lips by a “sketchy” place. The price was cheap and that should have been my red flag. Needless to say, it caused problems. Lucky for me, I found Dr. Katzen who has great knowledge of silicone removal. He does these silicone removals quite often, in different parts of the body. I’ve learned my lesson of paying a little bit more to get things done right the first time. More

I Cried Happy Tears when Dr. Katzen Removed Bandages After Body Lift. - I lost 119 pounds and most importantly, I maintained my weight loss the last two years. I could not put off the removal of excess skin any longer. Dr. Katzen performed a 360 body lift on me where he excised my skin and fat, and tightened me up. After my body lift, I stayed at a recovery center (near his office) for one night. Dr. Katzen came by early the next morning to check on me and released me to go home. After a week, I came in for my post op check up. Dr. Katzen removed the bandages and I cried my eyes out. I could not believe how great my surgery turned out. More

Facelift, Neck Lift, Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty, and Chemical Peel. - When people talk to you, naturally, they look at your face and eyes. My face was starting to show signs of aging. I spent a fortune on anti- aging products that does not work. I did not want to resort to plastic surgery but that was the only permanent fix. I had a facelift, neck lift, upper and lower blepharoplasty (eyelids) and chemical peel with Dr. Katzen. Dr. Katzen did not over-tightened my face and did a beautiful job restoring it’s youth. More

An absolutely stellar doctor - Had my surgery 4 1/2 weeks ago. Dr. Katzen was patient and explained all the steps for my recovery. I still have a week or 2 left before the swelling is completely gone, but my body looks amazing. My stomach is flat and I'm as slim as I was 20 years ago. My neck lift is perfect and he also removed a very stubborn plantar's wart that just wouldn't go away. I couldn't have achieved this look... More

Permalip - Top Lip Only - 5mm - Beverly Hills, CA - My lips have always been an insecurity of mine. Mainly my top lip as it is noticeably smaller than my bottom lip. I tried Juvederm out back in 12/29/15, and loved my results but they only lasted 4-5 months, and I had paid $485. So getting Permalip just seemed like a better solution for me, money and convenience wise. Plus it can last a life time. Making the PROS of Permalip out number the CONS. That's when I decided to start my research and look into getting a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. I did a lot of research on Yelp, Real Self, Facebook reviews, and qualifications before choosing Dr Katzen in Beverly Hills, and after having my consultation with him on 1/04/17, I was confident enough to book an appt with him for the procedure on 1/20/17. We both agreed that only getting Permalip on my top lip was the proper choice. It'd make my lips proportioned or my top lip only slightly bigger than my bottom, and that was okay with me. Dr Katzen was very warm, and knowledgeable and made sure to answer any questions that I had. He even had a phone call with me a week prior to my procedure date to get any last questions/concerns out of the way, and to confirm what size I wanted to go with. I also was able to voice my concerns about my fear of having "sausage lips" or them looking too fake. He quieted my insecurities with knowledgeable answers and made me feel comfortable with following through with the procedure. Well, 1/20/17 (today) approached quickly and of course I was very nervous once arriving at the doctor's office. He prescribed me Valium and I was able to get my prescription filled down stairs in the same building. Got my prescription within 10 mins, and went back upstairs. Had my chance to ask anymore questions before signing the documents and then took my Valium. I was taken into the back room, where topical numbing cream was applied to my lips. Waited about 20 mins, and then numbing injections were made into the corners of my top lip. Followed by my incisions being made into the corners of my mouth. Once the tunneling incision began, I couldn't feel a thing until he got closer to the center of my lips, where he then added a couple more numbing injections just to make sure I wouldn't feel anything. Honestly that was the most painful part out of all of this. The numbing injections hurt! Lol. But after that, I couldn't feel a thing. The tunneling through my upper lip continued and before you know it, my implant was in. Dr Katzen did a stitch on each side of the corner of my mouth, and ensured me that the implant was the perfect size for my lip. (We went with a 5mm in medium length for those wondering!)Over all my experience during the procedure wasn't too bad! My nerves and adrenaline definitely had me shaking, but it was practically painless except for those numbing shots. But other than that I only felt some mild tugging and pressure. And Dr Katzen made sure to comfort me as much as he could. He could tell I was nervous, and made some small talk with me, to distract me and keep me at ease. Asked where my favorite place was to vacation, if I snowboard, stuff like that. So I really appreciate how warm and friendly he was, and he had excellent bed side manner! He also prescribed me some antibiotics to prevent infection, and I was able to get those down stairs. And immediately scheduled a follow up appt for 1/23/17, and he told me I could call him at any time if I had any worries or concerns. So I thought that was very cool and generous of him. I am now almost 2 hours post procedure, laying in bed. (Elevated of course) and my lip is swollen and starting to throb! Thank god I have some Percocet to help with the pain, and I'm icing 20 mins on and 20 mins off. I also am taking Arnicare tablets and Bromelain which should help with bruising/swelling as well, so wish me luck! Will keep updating as the days go on. More

NO More Back and Shoulder Pain After Breast Reduction - Beverly Hills, CA - I’ve been living with pain in my back and shoulders due to the size of my breasts. I wasn’t sure if it was worth going through surgery, maybe I can live with the pain. I scheduled a consultation but still felt uncertain until I met Dr. Katzen. He told me he had many patients with large breasts that had similar pain as I did. He said their pain were resolved after surgery. He gave me reassurance and hope. I scheduled surgery and felt quite nervous up until the day of surgery. Now that I’ve undergone a breast reduction, I would do all over again in a heartbeat. I feel when people talk to me now, they look at my eyes and not my breasts. More

Upper and Lower Eyelid, Chin Implant, Chemical Peel - Beverly Hills, CA - I had bariatric surgery and lost over 100 lbs. Not only did I experience sagging in my body, but I also experienced some changes in my face. I looked much older than I did before I lost all the weight. I decided to have upper and lower brow lift, chin implant and a chemical peel. I had heard about Dr. Katzen through some other patients in my bariatric support group meeting. They also raved at how wonderful he was so I had to check him for myself. I am so glad I did. He made me look and feel so much younger. More

Microneedling, Immediate Great Results! - Beverly Hills, CA - I'm so pleased with the microneedling facial I had at Dr. Katzen's office. Lorn-Nicole, their esthetician, was thorough in her description of the procedure, explaining how she would first apply the stem cell formula to my face and neck then apply the microneedling "Derma Pen" to help my skin help better absorb the formula and achieve maximum results. She explained there would be some slight discomfort (it was brief and wasn't anything terrible) and that I could expect to see my skin's appearance improve shortly. I was surprised how my face and neck responded so quickly! I had come in with really dry skin from a lot of recent plane travel, but when I left Dr. Katzen's office my skin immediately felt firmer and more supple. In fact, when I flew to New York the next day, a friend commented (unprompted) on how great my skin looked. Over the next days, I noticed the lines around my mouth had diminished and the skin on my neck was much firmer. The care I got at Dr. Katzen's office and with Lorn-Nicole was excellent, and I'm really grateful for this wonderful procedure. I'm looking forward to my next session! More

I was first introduced to Dr. Timothy Katzen at a support group meeting. He spoke about the possible need or desire for plastic surgery after weight loss. At that time, I was just beginning my journey, but after a loss of 100 pounds, I felt like it was necessary for me to go forward and have excess skin removed.From the first consultation meeting at Dr. Katzen’s office, I was very at ease and Dr. Katzen explained and answered all my questions. He made me feel very comfortable in such an awkward (to me anyways) situation. I proceeded with three surgeries. I had a neck lift, tummy tuck, torso and an arm lift. It was a journey, with all 3 surgeries, but a road well taken.Without the encouragement of Dr. Katzen and his great personality, and his office staff, I could not have done this. Also without my family and friends support, it would not have been possible. I am so thankful and blessed to have been able to be taken care of by such a great doctor and staff.Thank you so much for your care and concerns, and making me feel great about myself. More

I met Dr. Katzen at a seminar. I was only going to have my arms repaired because they upset me the most even though I had more than that which needed to be reconstructed.Well, I have to say what made me switch doctors in midstream and cancel the scheduled surgery with the other doctor was Dr. Katzen himself. He had a very put together presentation that was informative and more so, he was not trying to sell himself in the sense you feel from other doctors. He was offering a service to people who had suffered the ravages of obesity and telling us -look this is what I can do for you. I am not a miracle worker nor am I a "god,"...I am a person who can make you feel good about yourself again or maybe for the first time in your life. He never promised that you would look like a super model. In fact, Dr. Katzen had slides of people who had also been obese in different degrees and ages and showed what the results were. It was dramatic and especially in the sense that they gave realistic expectations.After his presentation, I spoke with him on the floor of the conference room. Dr. Katzen was personable, knowledgeable and a very kind person.When I had my initial consultation, I thought I was going to die a million deaths having to take my clothes off, but that was not the case with him. I was not uncomfortable and there was no distain on his face like I had already experienced by other doctors. He explained to me what he could do for me, and I just went for it.I am here to say that Dr. Katzen is an amazing person and surgeon. His skills as a surgeon have by far surpassed my expectations. He is an artist using the human body as the canvas. Another thing about him that has never changed is his demeanor. He cares beyond belief which is not put on nor phony. He makes you feel like you are the one and only.However beyond that and I must really stress this - Dr. Katzen is one of the most ethical people I have ever met and the integrity he possesses most people cannot hold a candle next to him. Dr. Katzen is a super star in my eyes and I will always be extraordinarily grateful to the man who gave me a gift that I could never put a price tag on. I able to hold my head up high and know how I feel about myself is all because of this gifted man. I have a body by katzen! More

I travelled from Georgia to California to have Dr. Katzen perform a blepharoplasty because I trust him! I refer all of the bariatric patients I work with to consider having Dr. Katzen do their body reconstructing because he is an expert in this specialty.

I had my gastric bypass with duodenal switch nine years ago and lost a total of 120 pounds. As a result of the rapid weight loss I had a lot of extra skin. While I could dress to hide the extra lumps and bumps, it was difficult to find clothes that were small enough to fit attractively yet large enough to accommodate the extra skin around my abdomen (not to mention the arms and thighs). I was sitting at home and saw the commercial for The Real Skinny and was mesmerized. I made a mental note to be home and watch the episode that told Sarah’s story. I have to say I watched the whole episode with tears in my eyes. I think for the first time I felt I wasn’t alone. When Sarah used her hair dryer to dry her tummy I lost it. I thought I was the only one that did that! By the end of the show I was bawling. When the repeat came on I had my husband sit down and watch the show with me. I decided that I wanted to meet Dr. Katzen and have a consultation to see what he could do for me. Dr. Katzen was just as kind and gentle as he appeared to be on the program. He immediately made me feel at ease and really seemed to understand what I was feeling and thinking. For me the most difficult part was undressing and letting Dr. Katzen do the exam. At this point I was newly married and my own husband hadn’t seen me entirely naked! Dr. Katzen really "held my hand" through the whole exam and gave me a glimpse of what he could do to help me. My surgery date was August 20, 2012, and while it was one of the scariest things I've ever done, Dr. Katzen and his staff were amazing.
