Restoring My Life - Beverly Hills, CA

The first time I heard Dr. Katzen speak I knew he was the person I wanted to complete my journey. His slide presentation was amazing and his former patients praised Dr. Katzen’s work and compassionate bedside manner. In the fall 2008 Dr. Katzen performed brachioplasty (arms), breast lift with augmentation, and lower face lift and four months later I had a lower body lift. Dr. Katzen helped me to feel young again! Not only is Dr. Katzen an amazing surgeon and artist but his compassion is extraordinary. From the very first time I met with him, he never made me feel embarrassed or ashamed of the damage I had done to my own body.

Most Caring Doctor I've Ever Met - Beverly Hills, CA

He's an amazing doctor. Very happy with my results. Dr. Katzen is not only professional, he is the most kind and caring physician I have ever met. He went above and beyond his call of duty as a doctor. His bed side manner is wonderful as well as his patient follow up. He called me back late Friday night to answer some of my questions I had after my surgery. I don’t think there is a better or more caring surgeon out there then Dr. Katzen. I would recommend Dr. Katzen to all my family and friends.

There is No One Better Than Dr. Katzen! - Beverly Hills, CA

After going on consults with several surgeons who made me feel less than ok, and who actually made me ashamed of how I looked, Dr. Katzen immediately made me feel comfortable and confident that he was the right surgeon. His vision provided me with the hope of a normal looking body and I was pleased beyond by expectations! You can't ask for more than that! I will be forever grateful for having found Dr. Katzen!!!!! There are not enough words of praise that can adequately describe Dr. Katzen. He has made a practice of transforming those of us who have had substantial weight loss and are left with loose and hanging skin -- a constant reminder of the excess weight that leaves us feeling unattractive and less self confident than prior to our weight loss. Dr. Katzen is like a scupltor that can envision the beauty within and performs his magic to showcase what has been hiding beneath all that skin. Not only does he have masterful surgical skills, but his compassion and caring for EACH of his patients goes beyond the surgical suite and his office. He is available to each of us at almost a moments notice and hears our concerns and fears and takes it all seriously. I have never met another surgeon who cares as much about his patients as Dr. Katzen!

Great Doctor and Great Result - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr Katzen takes all the time you need to discuss the procedure and answers all the question you might have. He was always there for me then and now. He is a caring doctor and a great person. I am thankful I met him and he did my surgery. Thanks to Dr katzen. He is also a great person extremely supported through out the surgery as well as 5 years later. I am very thankful for him.

Dr. Katzen is an Extraordinary Reconstructive Surgeon with an Incredible Bedside Manner! - Beverly Hills, CA

I met Dr. Katzen at an Obesity Help seminar and immediately knew that he was the right surgeon for me. He was extraordinarily talented and allowed me to visualize my body post surgery. He is kind, caring and responsive. I have had numerous procedures including 360 body lift, arm lift, thigh lift and breast lift. I never thought I would have reconstructive surgery but was blessed to meet Dr. Katzen at an Obesity Help seminar. Dr. Katzen helped me to visualize what my body could look like post surgery. I still remember my first appointment with him like it was yesterday. Dr. Katzen is a one of a kind, very talented artist who was able to scalp my body into the "normal" person I alwasy wanted to be. He truly is an artist and is tremendously talented. In addition, he is very caring and responsive with an outstanding bedside manner. I recommned Dr. Katzen without reservation. I feel truly blessed to call Dr. Katzen my surgeon.

HIghly Recommended, Great Experience - Beverly Hills, CA

I corresponded with about a dozen surgeons, met with five in person, continued into full consultations with three, and this was all just to make me feel better about what I knew from the second I met him... Dr. Katzen was my surgeon. He understood what was important to me, he's extraordinarily skilled, he never once treated me like an object, he never condescended to me. His staff was friendly and responsive, his facilities clean and professional. If you're even thinking about this type of surgery, you need to at least meet him in person.

Arm and Breast Lift After Weight Loss Surgery - Beverly Hills, CA

Now that I'm an official -- AND SUCCESSFUL -- post-op, I figure it's time to write a review of Dr. Katzen. Let me just say that I LOVE this man -- since the day of my surgery, he's made me feel that I'm his only patient. How, on earth he's able to accomplish this is beyond me, but he does it with compassion and gentle concern. Remember, I've taken to calling him Dr. "Zen" because of his amazingly calm, patient and comforting bedside manner. Whether he's returning one of my panicky calls on the way home from surgery, or visiting with me in one of my post-op appointments, he has NEVER made me feel crazy for my concerns -- never once. He is reassuring and very compassionate -- two things I cannot stress enough.
