5 out of 5 stars Liposuction Revision

Changed my Life - Beverly Hills, CA

To say Dr. Begovic is one of the most talented and passionate people I’ve ever met would be an understatement. I came to her after 15 years of feeling unhappy and self-conscious about a previous liposuction surgery on my abdomen and back. My results were a lumpy, asymmetrical mess – I had random pockets of fat that were left behind and indented areas where the doctor took too much. After yea...

So Painless So Far - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Begovic is so awesome! She makes you feel reel comfortable and she is gentle. She does not over do it so I would rather have less skin taken off then more. She is more concerned with safety and keeping your labia that cutting it all off. Anything will look better than having skin hang down .

Dr. Begovic is Amazing!! - Beverly Hills, CA

I'd like to start off by thanking Dr. Begovic and her staff.. I have been wanting to get my procedure done for quite some time and I had seen a few doctors to get the best opinions. After visiting Dr. Begovic, I knew I was in good hands. I felt as if I was talking to a friend about my concerns and questions. She was so helpful and so kind that I felt comfortable right away. After visiting...

Great Bedside Manner and After Care - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Begovic is the best! A few years ago I had a surgery with another plastic surgeon and the difference in bedside manner is like night and day, she's so nice and makes you feel so comfortable, you aren't just another number, another appointment squeezed in- I have since recommended her to two of my friends for implants and botox and they both loved her too. A third friend had implants done in June and she LOVED Dr. Begovic. She spends as much time as you need, and encourages you to take time to make decisions (not common from my experience!), answers endless questions and she even called me personally after to see how I was doing. She really cares about her patients, she gets so happy when you are happy- by now I think it goes without saying her work is impeccable too :)

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

21 Years Old, 125lbs Down and a Removal of 6lbs of Excess Skin! Los Angeles, CA

I went to Dr Begovic after coming across her online. Having lost 55kg/125lbs and being left with loose skin that no amount of diet or exercise would change, Dr Begovic saw an article about me being declined funding in my own country and VERY GENEROUSLY donated her services to me to remove an apron of skin that was having a negative effect on my health and life. Dr Begovic ensured that her and...

Simply the Best - Beverly Hills, CA

Meeting Dr. Begovic is, medically, one of the best things that ever happened to me. I was in dire need of a two part breast surgery (implant replacement and lift) and "perfection" is what I got. Dr. Cat is no doubt an amazing doctor to all her clients, but being a woman, she understood where I was coming from EXACTLY. I couldn't have asked for a doctor that was more insistent in knowing exactly what my expectations and desires were. Needless to say my surgery was flawless and I feel (and look) great. I have continued to see Dr. Begovic for my other concerns, primarily tending to the aging process. I trust her advice implicitly. Furthermore, she is welcoming and encourages you to stay in touch, and open to fielding questions at any time (and I have many!). Communication is so important in the doctor/patient relationship, and she exceeds all expectations. Her office and staff are lovely as well! She has my highest possible recommendation.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck Revision

Full Tummy Tuck to correct Smart Lipo Disfigurement - Beverly Hills, CA

Super impressed thus far:) Phenomenal medical doctor. If you want a doctor who is a perfectionist and an artist, this is your gal. Did exactly what I wanted and far surpassed both our expectations. A genuinely humble and lovely lady.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Natural Looking Breasts - Beverly Hills, CA

Dr Begovic is the kindest most professional doctor I have ever seen. I had a small window to get the procedure done, and initially figured getting it done in my time frame was a stretch, but I'd at least gather more information. Within 2 weeks from the initial consultation they were able to get me into surgery. I was wishing for slightly larger but natural looking breasts. I was very...

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction Revision

Lipo Revision W Butt Lift - Beverly Hills, CA

I'm putting some time into this review because what Dr. Begovic did for me deserves at least that, and I know there must others out there who suffered the traumatic experience that I did. I want them to know they're not alone. There are people who can help. I've always been a petite person but I never had those feminine curves all women want so I thought a little liposuction to help wouldn't...

Amazing Person, Even MORE Amazing Surgeon!!!! Beverly Hills, CA

Dr. Begovic is amazing. I can't rave enough about how amazing her work is and how amazing of a person she is. She really values building relationships with her patients. I became familiar with her after asking a family member who works as a surg tech in the OR where all the BH plastic surgeons work, about who to go to for a procedure I was considering. Without any hesitation, she said Dr....
