Dr. J. Timothy Katzen's Ratings
I had a gastric bypass in August of 2006, I weighed 254 at the time. After keeping the weight off I decided to see Dr Katzen for the 360 Body lift. I cannot believe it's my body! My biggest problem is keeping my clothes on because I'm so happy I want to show everyone! Awesome surgeon, gifted hands, great bedside manner. You will not regret your decision to work with Dr Katzen. I sure didn't!
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.
My severely disabled brother (a convalescent Hosp. resident), received minor surgery, by the good Dr. ... just when his leg wounds and leg issues needed intervention. At my request, he took the time to graciously explain what he would perform (which went relatively well). About a year later, unfortunately, my brother's leg issues had worsened, he was hospitalized, and his leg problems became a much more critical and urgent medical matter. In essence: his life was at risk! At that juncture, my family could not locate an Orthopedic, nor Plastic Surgeon, who was willing to treat Steve (all kept urging leg amputation). It was a hopeless ordeal!
After much searching... I managed to get in contact with Dr. Katzen, again, and he went to visit my brother (on his own time), and called me, to explain his assessment of the wounds. Without hesitating, with confident expertise, and without any negativity, Dr. Katzen offered to save my brother's leg. Arrangements was made with his gracious Patient Consultant, Jaki, who liaised the urgently needed surgery arrangements. He also managed making sure that there was proper follow-up with the wound care staff, at the Conv. Hosp.. In a nutshell: Dr. Katzen performed his magic, and Steve's leg was saved (his life was saved)! Again, he was the only Dr., who reassured us that the leg could be saved, and that it was well worth trying. To date, my brother's leg is much better, is healing very well, and he is suffering less (thank God)! Were it not for Dr. Katzen's intervention, who knows what would have unfolded?
Therefore, it is with great pleasure, sincere gratitude and appreciation, that my family, my brother and I would recommend Dr. Katzen for your corrective surgical or cosmetic needs. May God bless Dr. Katzen's skilled hands, and may his practice flourish! :-)
My name is Jacki and I had the RNY gastric bypass 4.5 years ago. I went from 365lbs. down to 230lbs. Even though I was so happy with my results, nothing prepared me for how much excess skin, fat, and tissue I would still have. I was heartbroken because I had done all of this hard work to lose weight and feel normal, yet I still got stares; now they weren't from being morbidly obese, but because I had all of this unattractive hanging skin.
About 2.5 years ago I started to do my research and came across Dr.Katzen as one of my prospect surgeons. I had my consult and to be honest, he was nothing as I had imagined. Most doctors (especially in the Beverly Hills area) are all about the money. Dr.Katzen is not only one of kindest doctors I have met, but his artistic skills are impecable. Then, to make things even better, I got to see his work shine on TLC's The Real Skinny. Right then and there, I knew Dr.Katzen was the only surgeon I would trust my body with.
I have had multiple surgeries with Dr.Katzen that was staged into 3 different surgeries. I had a 360 body lift with staged liposuction of the medial thighs. An arm lift with a horizontal torsoplasty and the final surgery was a medial thigh lift. Dr.Katzen had amazing bedside manner and was very patient with me throughout the entire journey.
Dr K. is wonderful-not over the top...shifts us from nice and healthy, to normal, confident, and removes that loose, saggy extra skin. I love his insight into the possibilities for us, his gentle nature, and his follow up years after surgery...as he says, this is a lifetime commitment... Big hugs Dr. K....
Dr. Katzen is an outstanding reconstructive surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. He is caring, listens to what you have to say and is very responsive! I recommend him without hesitation. He specializes in post weight loss patients and is excellent at truly transforming bodies. He is the best Doctor (his tremendous skills and bedside manner) that I have ever come in contact with!
