Circumferential Body Lift and Medial Thigh Lift - A year and 8 months ago, I had gastric sleeve and was down 131 pounds. My body got smaller but I was draped in wrinkles. This is really common with weight loss patients so I was not shocked. I went on realself.com and found this site to be very educational. I found more information than I would ever need and it helped me make a very important decision about who my surgeon would be. Without a doubt, I narrowed my decision to Dr. Katzen and one other surgeon. I consulted with both surgeons and confidently chose Dr. Katzen after meeting them both in consultation.Dr. Katzen did my body lift and thigh lift and I highly recommend him. More

360 Body Lift with the Very Best Surgeon - I am one who always plans way in advance. Before I even had bariatric surgery, I had already started to research reconstructive plastic surgery. The first page that always popped up on my search was Dr. Katzen and I can see why. I remembered how I dreamt of having a normal body after being obese for so many years.When the time came for reconstructing my body after weight loss, I of course went to Dr. Katzen. He did not disappoint. He performed the 360 body lift on me and it turned out how I envisioned it to be. This man is a genius and has the best personality ever. More

Brachioplasty after 79lbs weight loss - I expect incisions to be light & flat - My review is for a brachioplasty, even though I have had other surgeries with Dr. Katzen (I wouldn't go anywhere else :))I had lost 79 pounds but my arms were always large. After losing weight, I had a lot of skin that just hung in my arms. It was ugly and it made shopping for tops very hard. Dr. Katzen did a fantastic job with the arm lift. Based on how my incisions have healed in the past, I expect my arm incisions to be very light and flat. I give Dr. Katzen a 5 out of 5 stars. He's amazing! More

I already feel like a different person - can't wait to come back - Dr. Katzen did wonders for my body and mind. I had bariatric surgery and lost over 150 pounds. After weight loss, everything drooped. I researched online for surgeons who specialize in weight loss patients like me. Dr. Katzen showed up on my top search so many different times. He had so many videos, pictures, lectures, podcast, and social media stuff pop up. There was so information about Dr. Katzen and his practice. I was very relieved to discover so of him and his work. I had the first stage of my reconstructive procedure, which is the body lift. I already feel like a different person. I can't wait to come back to Dr. Katzen finish more stages. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do my plastic surgeries but him. 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

He reshaped my body into something I could have never imagined - How lucky am I to have found Dr. Katzen online? I understand why his patients talk so highly of him. I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen after weight loss surgery. Dr. Katzen is so talented and understanding. He's worked on hundreds of weight loss patients, so he understands our needs. My body had endured so much weight gain and loss through the years and it showed. My body had stretched out so much and had excess saggy skin all over. Dr. Katzen not only repaired the skin, but he also reshaped my body into something I could have never imagined could be done. So thankful for Dr. Katzen's knowledge, skills, and kindness. 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

You will not find a more caring and skilled surgeon than Dr. Katzen. I went through significant weight loss and had to go through a body lift and I am so glad I ended up going with Dr. Katzen. It is a big decision and a surgery and he and his team will make sure that they make you feel comfortable and make you a priority from start to finish. There is no ego here. Just a Dr. that truly wants all his patients to be their best self. Thank you Dr. Katzen! More

Thigh lift and body lift at the same time after losing 150 lbs - After weight loss surgery, I lost 150 pounds. I NEEDED a body lift and thigh lift so badly. Dr. Katzen was able to combine both of those surgeries for me. Because it was a long surgery, I stayed at a recovery center for 2 days. Dr. Katzen came by the recovery center to check on me both days to make sure I was comfortable and doing well. I just love his bedside manner so much. The nurses also took wonderful care of me. My body lift and thigh lift made a massive difference in my body shape. I have gone down 4 to 6 clothing sizes (depending on the brand). I'm in love with my body. More

Body Lift with a Talented and Reliable Plastic Surgeon - Let me tell you about this plastic surgeon, Dr. Katzen, whom I met at a weight loss conference. I first attended one of Dr. Katzen's talks and left feeling so hopeful for the day I was going to have my own surgery with him. I scheduled a consultation the same day and immediately booked surgery for the summer. Dr. Katzen is genuinely kind, and caring and is an expert in his field. He's performed hundreds of surgeries just within the weight loss community alone. Dr. Katzen did my body lift and it looks incredible. I highly recommend checking Dr. Katzen if you are looking for a reliable and talented surgeon. More

Dr. Katzen and his team have been amazing since the first moment I contacted them. There are too many wonderful things to say about Dr. Katzen to list here! He is a very talented surgeon who genuinely cares for his patients. I am an out of state patient and he would always answer his personal line anytime I called with a question or concern after surgery. I must also mention that he has the BEST physician assistant, Talia. She has been so helpful and, without her assistance, this process would have been beyond stressful! His entire staff are wonderful as well. Dr. Katzen gave me results beyond my expectations and I highly recommend him for post weight loss surgery! More

Body and Thigh Lift After Gastric Sleeve - I Feel So Confident - Dr. Timothy Katzen is the best surgeon, hands down! I lost 121 pounds through a gastric sleeve. My weight loss journey has been full of emotions, but when I met Dr. Katzen, he fully understood me. He's done so many weight loss patients and understands our needs and our bodies. I underwent the 360 circumferential body lift and a thigh lift. Not only did Dr. Katzen fully transform my body, but he also transformed my mental state. I feel so confident with myself for the first time in a very long long time. More

My thighs turned out beautiful and recovery was not as bad as what I thought it would be - I've gone through a few reconstructive plastic surgeries after bariatric surgery but somehow the thigh lift surgery was the one that made me the most nervous. I heard so many things from others in the weight loss forums that I belong to, that it made me have a second thought about having the thigh lift surgery. One day while I was in the forum to research some more, I found one of Dr. Katzen's patient who had muliple surgeries with him, including a thigh lift. She had nothing but great things to say about him. I made a phone consultation appointment to talk to Dr. Katzen, I live in Ohio. Prior to the phone appointment, the office had me fill out the paperwork and had me sent some pictures of my thighs. Dr. Katzen was able to mark the areas in the pictures and approximate how much skin and fat he can remove. He was so pleasant to talk to. I flew out a few days before surgery and met him in person. He was more amazing than ever which calmed my nerves. My thighs turned out beautiful and recovery was not as bad as what I thought it would be. Dr. Katzen gave many suggestions of what to do to prep for post op, and I followed his instructions carefully. Would I do this again? Yes, in a heartbeat! This thigh lift surgery has changed my life.

I feel normal, beautiful, and whole again after my transformation - I met Dr. Katzen at a weight-loss conference in Las Vegas a few years back. He was one of the main speakers at the event. I remember sitting in the audience when he was presenting his talk which was full of before and after images. At this time, I had just undergone bariatric surgery. I was so intrigued by his work and followed him on all his social media. After a year of weight loss surgery, it was time for me to have a body lift. Of course, without hesitation, I booked a consultation with Dr. Katzen and finished my transformation. I feel normal, beautiful, and whole again. Dr. Katzen without a doubt is the most trusted surgeon specializing in weight loss patients. More

Body Lift Procedure Done with Perfection - I've spent the last year on Real Self researching for the right plastic surgeon to perform my 360 body lift procedure. I narrowed my choices to two surgeons. Both surgeons were located in the Los Angeles area where I live and both had great qualifications. I visited both surgeons in their offices for consultations, my choice was made easy. Dr. Katzen is very experienced with patients who have gone through massive weight loss and it was comforting to know that he did so many body lift procedures with amazing results. He had books and books with before and after photos of his patients. The cherry on top was how amazing Dr. Katzen is as a person. He doesn't talk down to you and has such a big heart. More

Body Lift, Thigh Lift, Arm Lift and Neck Lift....yes, I Had It All. - My weight loss journey started in 2020. The first two months after bariatric surgery, I already noticed my belly started to hang. I told my friends and family that I would need a tummy tuck for sure, but nothing else. Boy was I wrong! After 10 months, everything sagged; my breasts, arms, thighs, face. Dr. Katzen came to the rescue. I knew about him through my daughter's friend's mom. I ended up having a body lift, thigh lift, arm lift, and neck lift. These surgeries were done in stages. I haven't had my breasts done yet, maybe one day. I already had trust in Dr. Katzen because I felt like I already knew so much about him. Actually meeting him in person and going through the surgeries made me appreciate him so much. He is such a lifesaver. More

Compassionate surgeon who specializes in body lift procedures - Quick background about me. I had Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and lost 138 pounds. The very top priority of things that needed to be done after weight loss was a 360 circumferential bodylift procedure. Body Lift is a pretty big surgery and I needed to take my time to find a surgeon I can trust and who has done many of these surgeries. Without a shadow of a doubt, Dr. Katzen was a solid option to perform my surgery but my husband insisted I needed to consult with a second plastic surgeon to compare. This other surgeon was a popular surgeon in Beverly Hills as well, but I was not comfortable with him whatsoever. He spoke to me in a way that made me uncomfortable and he did not have as many body lift cases as Dr. Katzen did, not even close. My husband and I confidently decided Dr. Katzen was doing my body lift and we have no regrets. Dr. Katzen's work shows for itself. There are hundreds of pictures of his body lift procedures on his website and here on Real Self. I am pretty certain, he'll be adding my pictures to his gallery as well. More

Body Lift with 19 Pounds of Fat and Excess Skin Removed - After a successful year of weight loss, I was prepared for the next step of my journey, which is reconstructive plastic surgery with Dr. Timothy Katzen. I had a body lift where Dr. Katzen removed 19 pounds of fat and excessive skin. I have never looked so good in all of my adult life. I was finally free from obesity and excess skin. The best word to describe how I feel now is confidence. Since my body lift, I feel different, I carry myself differently, I dress differently. All good things. Life is so good now. More

360 body lift and medial thigh lift after 129 lbs weight loss - I am from Las Vegas, Nevada, and found Dr. Katzen to be the best fit for my reconstructive surgeries, so I gladly drove to California for my procedures. I had roux-en-y gastric bypass and lost 129 pounds. Dr. Katzen did my 360 body lift and medial thigh lift after my weight loss. Dr. Katzen has over 20 years of experience, specifically on weight loss patients and the results show how great his techniques really are. I just found out Dr. Katzen is lecturing at the Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America conference this weekend in Henderson, NV. If you are in the Vegas area and want a consultation with him, you better do yourself a favor and call his office. I am one of the lucky ones to call him my surgeon! More

Life changing arm lift after weight loss surgery - For those of you who have gone through weight loss surgery, you can relate to my issues. I had "bat arms" after losing so much weight. My arms were always getting rashes from rubbing against my skin. Finding tops that can fit me was horrible. I constantly wore long sleeves just to cover up my arms, even on hot days. When I had surgery with Dr. Katzen, my life changed. Most people take for granted how they can shop for clothes off the rack without any problems. I can finally do that, and it feels so good. I no longer deal with rashes and pain in my arms. I feel amazing. More

2 months post 360 circumferential body lift after 100lbs weight loss - My weight loss journey began a year and 8 months ago. I started off at 265 pounds, had bariatric surgery, and lost 100 pounds. Finding Dr. Katzen was a no brainer. He is the top surgeon for reconstructive surgeries after weight loss. I live in PA but happily traveled to California for my 360 circumferential body lift. I was able to do most things over the phone prior to my surgery. I had the surgery in California and stayed in town for about 2 weeks. Dr. Katzen checked on me daily and made me feel really special and cared for. My friends asked me if it was worth traveling to California for this procedure with Dr. Katzen and my response is "absolutely yes"! More

Facelift and neck lift after weight loss - unbelievable results - It's not common to find many people talking about facelift and neck lift after weight loss. For me, as I was losing weight after bariatric surgery, I noticed my face started to get droopier and I looked older without the "fat" in my face. I underwent facelift and neck lift with Dr. Timothy Katzen and the results are unbelievable. He didn't over-tighten my face where it was obvious that I had something done. People I work with and family members continue to compliment how young and good I look. 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

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

Dr. Katzen is Beyond Wonderful! - I normally don't write reviews but I feel like my experience was so amazing that it deserves a review and can help someone. I lost over a hundred pounds with the help of bariatric surgery. My friends and family all complimented me on the weight loss and always told me how great I looked. Little did they know under my clothes were awful saggy and wrinkled skin. Not only did my skin look bad, but I also had constant rashes and pain that required cream to treat. I spent many months researching for a plastic surgeon who had experience with weight loss patients. There were many in California, but Dr. Katzen stood out above the rest. He had so many resources such as his youtube channels, instagram, facebook, etc.... My favorite part was when I reached out to some of his patients via their social media platforms, they were so welcoming and friendly. They were honest about their surgical experience and spoke highly of Dr. Katzen and his office. I had my body lift procedure with Dr. Katzen and I am so glad I chose him. He does the surgery himself and follows up on the patients himself. I felt full support from him every step of the way. Dr. Katzen is a wonderful surgeon and I trust him completely. More

Arm Lift, Beautiful Incisions - Arm Lift surgery felt like a necessity for me after I lost over 100 pounds. The excessive skin and fat I was left with in my arms after weight loss was extremely bothersome. I constantly had rashes and skin chaffing. Finding tops and dresses that can fit my arms was a task, usually ending in settling for a style I did not like or was not fashionable. I would never be caught dead in a short sleeve or tank top. Most of my tops were long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves. This last summer, I had an arm lift surgery with Dr. Katzen. He is by far the most genuine and sweet surgeon I have ever met. He gave me beautiful arms and my incision is placed where you wouldn't know I even had anything done. My incisions are nice and thin. Thanks Dr. Katzen and staff for the excellent care. 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

Arm Lift Has Given Me my "Normal" Life Again. - Having an arm lift has changed my daily life so drastically. Background story: I used to weigh 280 pounds, lost over 100 pounds. After weight loss, I was left with "bat wings" that hung quite low. My arms got in the way at my job, like, it got caught in the cabinets, etc. At home, I have gotten burned on the stove and many other inconveniences. I would constantly get rashes on my arms and they would hurt. I couldn't fit normal tops because of my arms. Now, after arm lift, I can function normally and buy clothes off the rack. It feels so good to be able to do normal things in life. 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

Dr. Katzen is an Expert in Reconstructing Post Weight Loss Patients - Do you ever look at yourself and feel sad because of all the abuse you put your body through? Three years ago, I had weight loss surgery and shed over 120 lbs. In certain clothes, I looked good. No one knew what was hiding underneath but me. I felt "abnormal" and my self-esteem was not good. One of the ladies in my weight loss group chat shared her journey and recently had a body lift with Dr. Katzen. She was so open to sharing her pictures and experiences. I private messaged her and asked her a ton of questions, so was very generous in giving her time to me. She gave me the boost I needed to move forward with my own body lift surgery.

Weight Loss Journey to Reconstructive Plastic Surgery with Dr. Katzen - My journey started in 2018 when I had bariatric surgery for weight loss. I lost a total of 165 pounds. With that, came excessive loose skin in many parts of my body. I joined a few weight loss groups on social media and quickly learned about Dr. Katzen and his work. Many of his patients had nothing but great things to say about their surgery and how nice Dr. Katzen is. Testimonials from his patients made me excited for my own surgeries that I was about to do. I ended up having a circumferential body lift and a thigh lift, and I couldn't tell you enough how happy I am. My life has changed so much already and I cannot wait to see what my future holds. More

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

Recommend Dr. Katzen 100%! - Sometimes you bump into people and it was no accident. I was at a game before Covid happened. I sat next to this really sweet lady and we started doing small talk. Somehow the topic of weight loss came up and we both discovered we had lots in common. We both had WLS. I lost 122 pounds and she lost 146 pounds. During our chat, I asked if she had loose skin like me and what she did about it. She proceeded to tell me that she went to Dr. Timothy Katzen and had it taken cared of. She was so cute because she just couldn’t wait to tell me how wonderful he was and how wonderful her surgery turned out.I had a body lift with Dr. Katzen and my life has not been the same....in a very good way. Dr. Katzen exudes confidence in his work and it clearly shows. He's kind, gentle and very understanding. Would I recommend Dr. Katzen? Of course, 100%! More

I Had Body Lift, Thigh Lift, Arm Lift, Face and Neck Lift (Not All at Once) - What an adventure I have been on for the last two and a half years! First I had weight loss surgery, and got healthier and of course much slimmer. After losing so much weight, I was left with massive amounts of skin and fat. My body looked like a wrinkly 80-year-old body. I contemplated plastic surgery but kept talking myself out of it. I figured it was not a necessity. Over months' time, I felt more and more irritated with my body. I couldn’t fit into clothes properly, I looked old and I didn’t feel “normal”.I knew if I was going to have plastic reconstructive plastic surgery, it was going to be with the one and only Dr. Timothy Katzen in Beverly Hills. He dedicated most of his practice to weight loss patients just like me. I underwent a circumferential body lift, thigh lift, arm lift, face and neck lift (not all at once). All I ever wanted was to feel pretty and fit in with society’s norm. Dr. Katzen exceeded my expectations. I feel better than normal. I can wear tight clothing without any bulges showing. I can never imagine wearing the types of clothes I wear now with confidence.

Butt Silicone Injection Removal Journey (57 year old Female) - Approximately twenty years ago I had illegal butt injections introduce into my body that would cause me a host of health complications. I lived daily in excruciating pain and the quality of my life declined tremendously. My buttocks where discolored with hardening of the area of the injections and some skin deterioration .It seemed that the unknown substance was eating through my skin. The condition of my skin was getting worse each day. I felt my buttocks burning all the time with no relief and stabbing pain. It was very difficult to sit down. It felt like I was sitting on hot stones. My legs felt extremely heavy and painful which made it hard for me to walk and stand up. I felt pain in my pelvic and back also. My eyesight was failing me and my hair was falling in clumps. The chronic pain had caused me weight loss and constant lack of energy and on going fatigue and sleep deprivation. I had developed chills, sweats, and chest pain. I was rushed to the hospital several times with severe pain and burning to my buttocks, legs and pelvic. It was becoming very difficult with the pain for me to perform my activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, and cleaning. I left my home and moved in with my son so he could help me with the daily activities. I felt like this poison inside me was killing me. The fear of death had me falling into a depressive state of mind. I am a Registered Nurse and for so many years I had enjoyed my job and making a difference in someone life. I dreaded that I was going to loose my employment because of my debilitating health issues which forced me to take days off from work. The only thing that doctors could do for me after they assess me was give me pain medication which no longer relief my agonizing pain and then refer me to a plastic surgeon while stating what ever you have inside your buttocks must be removed as soon as possible. I could no longer live like that! The illegal injections had affected my whole life. During this time I was also grieving the loss of an 18-year relationship. My situation was medical and was threatening my life. I had exhausted all measures of pain management relieve, pain medication, cortisone injections, acupuncture, physical therapy, massages and nothing helped me. The silicone removal was medically necessary to get my health back. I began my search for a skilled plastic surgeon and some visits left me scared and crying. I went to Real Self to connect with women that had made the same mistake and through Real Self I was introduce to the most amazing and compassionate Plastic Surgeon Dr. Timothy Katzen. From the moment I met him he made me feel comfortable he took the time to listen and make me feel valued and respected, treating others as you would want to be treated. I have been around numerous doctors during my career as a nurse, and he is a special one. He answered all my questions and gave me hope. He was heaven sent my savior. My surgery took place on July 2, 2020. I remember his smile as he came into the pre-op area and simply just brought a wave of peace to the room. He made it feel easy for me to feel safe and secure while in his care. I am three month post op and I feel wonderful all symptoms gone. My recovery has been amazing. I am a normal, healthy person who can do things I want to in my life again. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for you. Thank you for your expert care and for saving my life! You are a truly a remarkable surgeon and professional that I respect and trust. I feel blessed to have come your way. Your kindness and care will never be forgotten! Everyday of my life will be better because of you.Dr. Katzen and his staff went above and beyond my expectations!!! More

Dr. Katzen lived up to his great reputation. - This will sound familiar to those who have gone through massive weight loss as I have. I have always had huge arms when I was obese. Naturally, my arms became saggy after I lost weight. There was no doubt in my mind that Dr. Katzen was going to do my arm lift. The day I found his website and saw over 100 patients' arm lift pictures, I felt confident about choosing him as my surgeon. Dr. Katzen lived up to his reputation. If it wasn't for the incisions that are well hidden inside my arms, you couldn't even tell I had arm surgery or that I ever had weight issues in my arms. Honestly, my arms look better than most females my age and I'm proud to show them in a tank top. More

I Lost Weight and Got Healthier, but Dr. Katzen Transformed Me (BodyLift) - Quick background about me. I had weight loss surgery in 2018, lost 124 lbs. I was in desperate need of a body lift. Of course I was nervous about having reconstructive surgery and I kept telling myself I can live with the excessive loose skin. I was living a lie, I hated my loose skin. I couldn’t bare to look at myself in the mirror. Dr. Timothy Katzen and I discussed what I wanted and we formulated a plan for me. I had a 360 circumferential body lift which targeted my abdomen, hips, outer thighs, mons reduction and buttocks reduction. All this was accomplished through a long incision that went around my waist, kind of like a belt. Was the surgery worth it? 100% YES!!!!! The results were immediate and so satisfying. 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

There are no words that can describe how grateful I am to Dr. Katzen. He is the first surgeon I met with the biggest heart and not judgmental. I am a weight loss patient with lots of skin issues. He can tell I was nervous during my consultation and made every effort to ease my tension. I had the following procedures with Dr. Katzen: body lift, thigh lift, liposuction, breast augmentation with lift, and arm lift. These were staged into 3 different surgeries.

Let me start by sharing a little background about me. I had the gastric sleeve and lost 123 pounds. As with most weight loss surgery patients, I was left with a massive amount of hanging skin that does not go away with exercise. Dr. Katzen is known for his body lifts so I did not bother going anywhere else. Based on my research, he was well experienced and produced great results. I had my body lift 4 months ago and I am thrilled with how flat my abdomen is, my outer thighs are slimmer and smoother, my butt and hips looks so much better.

After weight loss, I thought I would need a body lift, but Dr. Katzen said all I needed was an extended tummy tuck. The extended tummy tuck incision does not go all the way in the back like a body lift incision would have been, which meant my recovery time and the pain was less. It also meant, less cost because OR time wasn't as long. I bring this up to show how caring Dr. Katzen is. He puts his patients' needs first and does whatever he thinks is right, he's not all about the money. I appreciate Dr. Katzen so much for his compassion and skills. More

Dr. Katzen removed not one, but two very persistent Plantar warts from my foot. The first was easily removed with a laser, but then, unfortunately, another one bloomed a month later. This one was more stubborn, requiring multiple laser treatments and freezing. Throughout the whole process, Dr. Katzen was patient, thorough and professional. My foot is now free of any warts and I can walk without any discomfort. Thank you, Dr. Katzen!

Gastric bypass saved my life. My health was down spiraling three years ago, I had to do something to become healthier. It was a daily struggle. After a year and 2 months, I lost a total of 152 pounds and the healthiest I’ve been in ages. I expected some excess skin but my body was wrinkled worse than a 100-year old woman, much worse! I felt depressed knowing I went through life-changing surgery and still not happy with my life. I attended a weight loss surgery conference and met Dr. Katzen. I admired his before and after pictures and spoke with him and his patients quite extensively. Before leaving the conference, I told him I would be booking my 360 body lift surgery with him. Within three months of meeting him, I was on the OR table. He removed 24 pounds of excess skin and fat from the mid section. My stomach is flat and he created a beautiful hour glass figure I didn’t know I had. From the same incision, he pulled the skin of my outer thighs and tightened it, gave me a butt lift and mons lift. I am blown away with the results. I am in tears as I am typing this review, he has completely changed me as a person, both physically and mentally. Dr. Katzen is my hero! More

In 2016 I had gastric bypass surgery. I was browsing the internet when a show on TLC called “The Real Skinny” popped up.

The interaction between her and Dr. Timothy Katzen was genuine and caring. Dr. Katzen definitely pulled on my heart strings how kind he was to help her. I had a connection with Sarah because I had the same struggles she did with her excess skin and all the problems associated with it. In 2018 I had my own body lift with Dr. Katzen.

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

Being obese most of my adult years gave me low self esteem and a plethora of other problems. I’ve learned to live with it and being unhappy. I had avoided seeing my primary care physician for years, knowing it’s never good news. I feared seeing a doctor, but my sister pressured me to get a check up. She was supportive and went with me. My worst fear was true, I had diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. My doctor said my BMI was 43 and I needed to lose weight. I had bariatric surgery and lost a massive amount of weight in just 11 short months. The result of the weight loss left me with mounds of excess skin. Although on paper, I was becoming a healthier person, I felt discouraged. I looked wrinkly and bad. My sister had been by my side throughout my journey. She helped me find a plastic surgeon who could help me get rid of the excess skin. She went with me to my consultation with Dr. Katzen. We had a long list of questions, but Dr. Katzen answered them all without making us feel rushed. We knew before leaving his office that he was the one to reconstruct my body. I had the 360 body lift. How can a surgery change my life and my self esteem so much, but it did. I am forever grateful to my sister for sticking with me through my journey in life and to Dr. Katzen for his superb skills and kindness. More

Many people don’t understand the daily struggles of loose skin. I constantly use creams and powders to treat rashes in the folds of my skin. One day as I was flipping the channels on tv, I saw a story about a lady who had weight loss surgery and went to Dr. Katzen for skin removal. I literally cried because that lady was me. She was open and honest about her journey. I remember thinking what a kind and gentle surgeon Dr. Katzen was. I made an appointment with Dr. Katzen to create my own success story. I had a body lift and thigh lift with him. It’s incredible how he molded a destroyed, ugly body into a beautiful, normal looking one. I am so glad I stumbled across that TV special, it changed my life! More

Dr. Katzen removed not one, but two very persistent Plantar warts from my foot. The first was easily removed with a laser, but then, unfortunately, another one bloomed a month later. This one was more stubborn, requiring multiple laser treatments and freezing. Throughout the whole process, Dr. Katzen was patient, thorough and professional. My foot is now free of any warts and I can walk without any discomfort. Thank you, Dr. Katzen!I am adding to this review as Dr. Katzen performed liposuction on my abdominal area as well as my back and chin. I am happy to say that after a year, I am still loving my new body. I can wear a bikini again! More

After successful weight loss surgery and losing over 150 lbs., I consulted with several plastic surgeons about reconstruction surgery. I was humiliated by two highly regarded surgeons. Then I met, and consulted with Dr. Katzen. Not only is he patient caring, compassionate, and fully dedicated to his practice, but his skills are amazing. He is the sculptor of the human body using medical tools instead of clay ones! Dr. Katzen has preformed 4 surgeries on me and I could not be happier with the results. You won't regret a decision to meet and have Dr. Katzen take care of your plastic/reconstruction surgery needs! More

Medial Thigh Lift after Gastric Sleeve - I was considered morbidly obese just two years ago. I decided to have the gastric sleeve and it was the best decision of my life. I lost 200 lbs and changed my lifestyle. I now eat healthy and go to the gym four times a week. As expected, my saggy skin did not go away. I seeked Dr. Katzen out and had a medial thigh lift and body lift. He's very experienced in treating weight loss patients. I highly recommend him.

The journey of massive weight loss then reconstructive surgery requires a lot of trust and support from your surgeon and their staff. I initially had a body lift with Dr. Katzen then two months ago, I had an arm lift. Dr. Katzen is incredibly skillful and caring.

43 year old, body lift by the best surgeon - Dr. Katzen performed a body lift on me. He has done hundreds of body lifts on weight loss patients so I was immediately assured that he was the right doctor. My body has been abused by many years of morbid obesity, it is finally normal. Actually, I feel better than most people my age. The best feeling is when my family and friends do a double take when they see me now.

I get teary eyed when I catch my reflection. - I lost 162 pounds though weight loss surgery and was in desperate need of a body lift. I had consultations with several other surgeons before choosing Dr. Katzen. Two of the other surgeons quoted me less than what Dr. Katzen charged, but my choice was crystal clear. He clearly had more experience and in my opinion better results. My body lift transformed me completely. I no longer feel ashamed of my body. I feel more confident and even dress and walk differently. A wow moment was when I walked by a store front and caught my reflection on the glass, I got a little teary. It’s hard for my mind to catch up to my reality. Thank you Dr. Katzen from the bottom of my heart. You’re simply just amazing. More

Body lift after losing more than half my body weight - Two and a half years ago, I had the gastric sleeve and lost 205 pounds. The surgery helped me for the most part but I made a conscious decision to change my lifestyle as well. I was pleased with how great I was feeling. With the excess skin after weight loss, I needed a body lift (very badly). I heard of Dr. Katzen’s great reputation and went straight to him. After meeting him, I had no need to consult with any other surgeons. He clearly specialized in patients like myself. I had the circumferential body lift and let me tell you, I am blown away with the results. He is an amazing surgeon who cares about every little details, down to the type of sutures he uses to ensure a perfect thin incision line. If you want the best in the business, you should check my surgeon out. He offers free consultations. More

Life Changing Experience with Dr. Katzen - My life has been a roller coaster. I was heavy set since junior high and became morbidly obese in my late 20’s. I dealt with bullying and fell into a deep depression. I had bariatric surgery, lost 205 pounds, gained lots of excessive skin. Dr. Katzen’s name got brought up a lot in the weight loss community forums and social media platforms. I had my consult with him and felt a sense of calmness like I was in really good hands. I had a body lift and it was life changing. My life has been full of ups and downs but I finally feel confident about myself and things are looking up for me. More

Surgeon with a Heart of Gold - If you are looking for a surgeon with a heart of gold, look no further. I found Dr. Katzen through the WLSFA foundation. This foundation helps fund surgeries for people who cannot afford it. Dr. Katzen has donated a couple of surgeries, which speaks volumes of his character. I am a weight loss patient and like most, I was left with really ugly sagging skin after the massive weight loss. No amount of exercise helped. I turned to Dr. Katzen two years ago for a body lift. I was thrilled with the results. In January, I returned for a thigh lift. I am still healing but very happy with my results so far. I cannot thank this man enough, he’s changed my life! More

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

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

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

Found Dr. Katzen through Real Self and I'm so happy I did. - I struggled with my weight and was miserable with the way I looked and felt. I researched options for weight loss and decided the healthiest option for me was diet and exercise. I knew it was going to be a long rough road but that was the road I took. I spend at least four days in the gym and ate healthy (well mostly). I lost 115 lbs and felt great! I enjoyed shopping for new clothes and sported a new hairdo. What nobody saw was the skin hiding under my clothes. No matter how hard I worked out, it was still there. I didn't want it to be a reminder of the old me. I found Dr. Katzen through Real Self and scheduled a free consultation with him. He is warm and great to talk to. He explained everything well and easy to understand. I had a tummy tuck with him and let me tell you, my stomach is as flat as can be. So so happy! More

Extended Brachioplasty - I was researching some doctors for a brachioplasty after my massive weight loss. I found a couple that seem to be experts in the field. I made appointments to see both and decided on Dr. Katzen. His bedside manner impressed me just as much as his skills. He had an album with hundreds of before and after arm lifts that he did. The results were incredible. I thought it was a long shot but I asked if insurance would pay for it and to my surprise, they said it can if my insurance feels it’s a medical necessity. The staff did all the paperwork to submit to my insurance and I waited 5 weeks before I heard back anything. When they called me to say insurance approved, I was overjoyed. I couldn’t believe it. That same day, we scheduled my surgery and the rest is history. My arms look so good! I highly recommend Dr. Katzen. More

55 pounds of excess skin and fat removed during circumferential body lift - Los Angeles, CA - I am a male patient who weighed 425 lbs. Over the course of 1 year and a half, I lost 200 lbs through gastric bypass surgery. I met Dr. Katzen at a weight loss convention and found him very personable. He had many of his post op patients at his booth so I had the opportunity to ask them questions as well. Because it was a weight loss convention, all his patients had weight loss surgery then reconstructive surgery. His patients all had nothing but amazing things to say about him. He offered free consultations on site so I signed up. During consultation, he pulled my skin and gave me an idea how much skin and fat he can remove. It was surreal. I couldn’t wait to schedule my surgery. I had a circumferential body lift where the incision goes all around my belly to my back, like a belt. Dr. Katzen removed 55 pounds of excess skin and fat. I am beyond thrilled. My life has improved so much. I have my second surgery with Dr. Katzen in a couple of months. He’ll be doing a medial thigh lift on me. He is the only doctor I will have doing my reconstructive work. More

Arm Lift after Lap Band - I had a lap band 2 years ago and lost 100 pounds. When I made the decision to lose weight, I decided to make some major life style changes. I never wanted to be that overweight again. My band constricted what I can eat but I also worked out 4-5 days a week. After weight loss, I had some sagging skin but nothing too horribly bad. I could live with it. The one area I could not live with was my arms. I lifted weights to tone my arms but unfortunately it did not work. My trainer said no matter how hard I worked out, I would need surgery to address the excess skin on my arms. My trainer said he worked with another weight loss patient that had the same problem I did and told me how she went to Dr. Katzen. I made an appointment with Dr. Katzen and was met by the most kind surgeon. He was generous with his time and answered all my questions. He clearly has treated many patients who have had weight loss surgery. I felt very comfortable with him. In April, Dr. Katzen performed an arm lift on me and it looks so great. The incision is already healing so beautifully. It’s hidden inside my arms where no one really sees it unless my arms are in the air. My experience with Dr. Katzen was great! More

Feels great to have a gap in between my thighs again (Medial Thigh Lift) - I had DS surgery and lost 150 pounds. I previously had a body lift with Dr. Katzen and the results are spectacular. He is well known in the weight loss community as one of the top surgeons. My first surgery with Dr. Katzen went smooth. He spent time answering my questions before and after surgery. I came in feeling confident and prepared. I followed his instructions to a T and my pain was well managed. In March, I returned to Dr. Katzen to have the second planned surgery, a medial thigh lift. He did not disappoint. I love how I have a gap between my thighs, something I haven’t seen in a very very long time. I am on my way to feeling like a “normal” person again.

My search led me to Dr. Katzen where I was impressed with his glowing reviews, qualifications, and thousands of before and after pictures. I am so thrilled that I found him because he is a true artist and he genuinely cares for his patients. I’ve never met a doctor so kind and accommodating. I’m fortunate to have found him.

I was not going to settle for any surgeon, I wanted to find one that understands weight loss patients who had massive weight loss with excessive loose skin.

Then, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Katzen. He had everything I was looking for and more. I was impressed with his education, experience, results and compassion. I felt blessed to have found him.

He's very experienced with weight loss patients. His waiting room was full of people just like me. He took the time to explain everything to me in terms I can understand. His bedside manner was impeccable. I can't say enough about him. The best part is the result. My body lift looks better than what I can imagine it to be. I still need to have my arms and breasts done. There's no doubt I will be returning to Dr. Katzen More

Met many of Dr. Katzen's happy patients prior to surgery and now I am one of them! - I had roux en Y gastric bypass and lost 128 pounds. I was one of the fortunate ones where I didn't have a lot of excess skin all over but my problem area was my arms. I had joined a couple of online sites geared towards people who had weight loss. His patients have a high presence on those sites and had nothing but great things to say about him. I found out he was going to be speaking at an event and offering free consultations so I immediately signed up. When I arrived, I checked in at his booth and was greeted by about 10 of his post ops who were volunteering. I couldn't believe how loyal his patients are to be helping him on a weekend, they all expressed gratitude for him. They were all very happy with their weight loss and reconstructive journey. They were open to share their experiences with me and even showed me their scars. Before I met him, I pretty much had my mind set that he was a great surgeon. I had my consultation and he made me feel comfortable right away. I knew he was going to be the one to do my surgery. I am so happy with my arm lift. I can't wait to wear tank tops and bathing suits without feeling self conscious. More

Body lift after weight loss surgery - I’ve been obese since my teenage years. In my twenties I weighed almost 400 pounds. I had weight loss surgery and lost almost 200 pounds. I was feeling healthy but it left me with massive amounts of excess skin. I went on blogs and websites to find a surgeon that specializes in weight loss patients and found that Dr. Katzen came highly recommended. I made an appointment with him and felt comfortable right away. He took the time to answer all my questions and showed me many before and after pictures of bodies just like mine. I had a 360 circumferential body lift and I am so happy with the outcome. I am coming back to Dr. Katzen to have my breasts and arms done in the near future. More

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

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

My incisions are perfect and my curves are like artwork, thanks to Dr. Katzen - After a long journey of excess weight loss, I was 150 pounds lighter. This was the best thing that had ever happened to me, yet the evidence was still there to remind me- my skin. I pride myself on my passion for fitness and weight lifting. No matter how much work I put into my body, it was always covered with the memory of a person I no longer was. Then, I met Dr. Katzen, and he helped me finish what I started. From the moment I met him, I felt at ease and knew I was making the best choice entrusting my body to him. Not only is he recognized as one of the best plastic surgeons in the country, Dr. Katzen is also unbelievably kind and patient with every single question and concern I ever have. I always describe him as an artist, because my incision lines are so perfectly straight and my curves are like artwork. I am very proud to say that my body was deigned by Dr. Katzen. My appreciation for him will be life-long! More

Transformation after weight loss - I am a returning patient of Dr. Katzen’s. I had a body lift with him in January after undergoing RNY gastric bypass. I lost a total of 155 pounds. Dr. Katzen reconstructed the first stage of my surgery and it looks great. I just had an arm lift with Dr. Katzen in July and I can already see how skinny my arms are. I can’t recall the last time I wore a tank top because of my “bat arms”. Thank you Dr. Katzen for transforming me into what I am today. More

Gynecomastia, Male Breast Reduction. - I noticed most reviews on Real Self are females so I wanted to represent us men. I’m in my late 40’s and I’ve put my body through a toll. At my highest weight, I was 350 lbs. I had gastric bypass and lost 105 lbs. I worked out heavily during the weight loss so I didn’t have a bad overhang on my abdomen BUT my breasts were hideous. When I was heavy, I had man boobs so when I lost weight, they started to droop, in the worst way possible. I researched many doctors and found the perfect doctor for the job. Dr. Katzen has done many male breast reduction. He has many patients just like me. I checked out his before and after pictures and was pleasant to see how great the results were. My surgery went well….. better than well. It’s hard to describe the feelings I have. I feel like a “real” man now. I don’t have to feel weird when I take my shirt off when swimming. I owe many thanks to Dr. Katzen. More

My neighbor sent me to Dr. Katzen and now my arms look just as great as hers - Los Angeles, CA - I have severe bat wings under my arms. Like Oprah, I’ve gone through the yo yo diets, lost and gained hundreds of pounds through the years. I did a pretty good job hiding most of body underneath my clothes using spanx and other compression garments. My arms have been tougher to hide. I own so many 3/4 sleeve shirts but it’s hard to deal with when it gets past 100 degrees where I live in Palm Springs.I have a neighbor that had surgery with Dr. Katzen. She shared her weight loss stories and how she went through several surgeries afterwards to fix her excess skin problems. Besides being a great neighbor, she and I have a lot in common. She offered to go with me to my appointment and I’m sure glad she did. She’s been a great support person for me throughout the process. She’s even brought food over while I was recovering. All I can say is, my arms look just as great as hers now, all thanks to Dr. Katzen! More

Body Lift reconstructive surgery - I gained weight after having my babies and the weight kept coming on. I weighed 270 pounds at my heaviest. I had the gastric sleeve and lost 105 pounds. With the massive weight loss, I was left with sagging skin in my tummy, thighs, breasts and arms. I researched Dr. Katzen on Obesity Help and Real Self. He had a high number of positive reviews. I felt comfortable and made an appointment. He was awesome from the first time I met him and I am so happy with my body lift. Next stage is my thigh lift. I can't wait. More

Thigh Lift with an Expert Surgeon in Beverly Hills. - In the last two years, I lost 138 pounds through weight loss surgery. I previously had a body lift with Dr. Katzen and couldn’t be happier with the results and process. He’s sympathetic to weight loss patients and understands our emotional and nutritional needs. It was nice not having to explain to him about my weight loss journey since he has hundreds of patients just like me. In April I returned to Dr. Katzen for the second phase of my surgery, which is a medial thigh lift. I never knew it would be possible but I finally have a gap in between my thighs. One of the struggles after the body lift was finding pants that would fit me properly. Dr. Katzen gave me a tightened and smaller waist, but my thighs would not allow me to fit into a size 8 pants. I love that my body is now proportionate. More

Body Lift after massive weight loss. - Let me just say, I love Dr. Katzen! He is such a caring and courteous surgeon. Every visit that I’ve had with him, he has given me his full attention and answered all my questions and concerns. He does it with such sincerity. I knew right from the first meeting, he was my surgeon of choice. I came to Dr. Katzen with a body that was saggy, ugly and ravaged due to years of being obese. I lost a massive amount of weight and needed help. Dr. Katzen did a 360 circumferential body lift on me and my new body looks incredible. Thank you for doing such a good job and taking great care of me. Just a little fun fact: Dr. Katzen is a scuba diver just like me. It made for great conversation each time I saw him. 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.

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

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

I did quite a lot of research for a doctor who could help me complete this journey. After reading many testimonials and talking to Dr. Katzen I decided he was the right surgeon for me. Dr. Katzen is an amazing doctor and an amazing person. Not only is he very skilled giving excellent results he is also very caring and compassionate. I had surgery (Butt Lift and Liposuction) last year with Dr. Katzen and my results are fantastic. I returned this year to do my thigh lift and final surgery.  I can whole heartedly and without any reservation recommend Dr. Katzen. I had complete confidence in him for my next surgery and would not have considered anyone else to help me complete my weight loss journey. My experience with him for this 2nd surgery was even better than the first and I am thankful that Dr. Katzen is my doctor. More

360 Body Lift has transformed my deformed body caused by obesity. - I met Dr. Katzen at the Obesity Help conference in Anaheim last October. There were several other surgeons there. They offered consultations on site so I made appointments with my top two picks. After the consultations, I had no doubt Dr. Katzen was my choice for reconstructive surgery. Dr. Katzen was knowledgeable about weight loss patients and clearly has done surgeries on a very large number of weight loss patients. He was also the only surgeon who had many of his patients there at the meeting so people can freely asked them questions about their experience. I took advantage of talking to many of his patients and was very pleased to hear their stories and how highly they spoke about him. This made me more confident of my decision to move forward. I had the first stage of my surgery, a 360 body lift. Dr. Katzen has done a perfect job transforming my deformed body caused by years of obesity.

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

Dr. Katzen is truly the best there is out there. I highly recommend him! More

I’ve been obese since my teenage years. In my twenties I weighed almost 400 pounds. I had weight loss surgery and lost almost 200 pounds. I was feeling healthy but it left me with massive amounts of excess skin. I went on blogs and websites to find a surgeon that specializes in weight loss patients and found that Dr. Katzen came highly recommended. I made an appointment with him and felt comfortable right away. He took the time to answer all my questions and showed me many before and after pictures of bodies just like mine. I had a 360 circumferential body lift and I am so happy with the outcome. I am coming back to Dr. Katzen to have my breasts and arms done in the near future. More

After some weight loss, I was needing a surgeon to take care of some unsettling areas. I found Dr. Katzen and was pleased to learn he has done thousands of reconstructive surgeries for weight loss patients. As soon as I had my consultation with him, I immediately knew he would by the one to help me complete my journey. I was impressed with his skills, bedside manner, how quickly he responds to my questions and so much more. His staff are also caring and are good about following up with me as well. I couldn’t be happier. More

My husband met me before weight loss surgery and has been supportive regardless of my weight. I had weight loss surgery and ended up with sagging skin all over. I ended up having a tummy tuck, breast lift and breast augmentation. Now, my husband can't stop giving my compliments on how great I look. He's a big fan of Dr. Katzen as well as I am. More

Before weight loss, I wore a 4X top and 34 bottoms. After losing weight and having plastic reconstructive surgery, I am now in a size 1 or 3 from the juniors department and size small top. For the first time in 30 years, I am in a bikini and I feel great in it. Dr. Katzen is the best doctor I could ask for! He is caring and never treats any of his patients like just another paycheck as some doctors do. 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

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

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.

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 had weight loss surgery at Cedar's Sinai Hospital. My highest weight was 315 pounds. I had several complications due to the excess weight includes, high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, infertility, and depression. Since my weight loss surgery, I have lost a total of 180 pounds. 140 pounds was in the first 18 months after surgery and I was left with unsightly and uncomfortable hanging skin. That's when I decided to see Dr. Katzen. As with weight loss surgery, I did my research. I consulted with 3 other surgeons prior to doctor Katzen and visited various websites in search of the right surgeon to meet my needs. Some told me that I was far beyond what plastic surgery could fix. And other's told me that they could help me with the loose skin, but they didn't have experience with WLS patients. When I saw Dr. Katzen, he was like a breath of fresh air. I was already discouraged about having surgery done, so I was so happy and excited to hear how familiar and experienced Dr. Katzen is with WLS patients. He talked with me, not at me, and made me feel at ease. He understood my concerns and truly listened to me with concern. I felt like I was with a long family friend, and I trusted him with my life. I had a circumferential body lift. Dr. Katzen removed approximately 20 pounds of excess skin and fat around my body and thighs and continued to loose another 10 pounds on my own. This makes my total weight loss of 180 pounds -- GONE FOREVER!! I went from originally wearing a plus size 30/32 to now wearing a petite size 2. I am a new woman now. I have self confidence that I never knew was in me. I feel great, I like looking in mirrors now, and shopping for clothes is the funnest thing I love to do! I am so grateful and completely happy with how Dr. Katzen has taken care of me. He truly understood my needs, and gave me the results that I always believed could never happen. Thank you Dr. Katzen!!

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

During my weight loss process I had always said that I would not get plastic surgery because I would have just been happy to lose the weight. As time went on and more and more weight came off, I found that my original statements just didn’t hold true. I did want to complete the process. I was so proud of what I had accomplished, and I knew that I deserved to have the body that I had always wanted.I first met Dr. Katzen at a conference. I was very impressed by his presentation, and his before and after photo’s just seemed to trump most of the other surgeons photo’s that I had seen. I knew this was the plastic surgeon for me!Since I live in Phoenix, AZ I found it necessary to communicate thru email, rather than travel back and forth. Dr. Katzen’s staff was excellent, and always made me feel like their most special patient. That spoke volumes to me. Soon I had a date to have the circumferential body lift, and a bi-lateral medial thigh lift. I flew to Los Angeles the day prior to my surgery and went to meet with Dr. Katzen. I was very nervous when the doctor came in to meet with me, but by the time I left his office I was at such peace with the procedure, and what to expect. Surgery went wonderfully, the hospital and staff was tremendous, and of course Dr. Katzen made certain that I was always very comfortable. I stayed in LA for a couple more days prior to flying home, and continued to have a very normal recovery.Today when people meet me they would never know that I had been morbidly obese, let alone have had plastic surgery. I’m able to wear the kind of clothing that I want to wear, shop where I want to, and I have the confidence in my body that I was looking for. Thank you to Dr. Katzen for helping me to achieve my desired look. You are the best! More

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.

I wanted to thank you for an amazing job at treating my spider veins. I felt so comfortable when you explained the entire process of the procedure. I loved how I was able to come in and go.I used to hate to wear shorts, skirt and short dresses. My veins were super ugly, large and unsightly. I was so happy that I got treated during my lunch break and was able to return to work immediately. When my procedure was finished, those ugly veins were gone instantly.I am looking forward to wearing shorts and short dresses again without being embarrassed. Thank you Dr. Katzen! You are the best.
