I have battled my weight my entire life. I first realized I was overweight in Kindergarten and over the years I had tried every known diet.

My maximum weight was 333 prior to having Gastric Bypass Surgery. Having Bariatric Surgery was one of the best experiences in my life. It was relatively painless and allowed me to get my weight under control. However, Bariatric Surgery was only the first step. After losing over 130 pounds, I had lots of sagging skin and some remaining fat in those tough areas (stomach, butt, thighs).

The key to really feeling like a "normal" person was having plastic surgery with Dr. Katzen. I still am amazed when I look in the mirror. I can not believe what I see is me!

I recommend Dr. Katzen without reservation! Dr. Katzen is very gifted. His talents are amazing. I had been referred to other plastic surgeons but as soon as I met Dr. Katzen and heard him speak at an Obesity Help seminar I knew he was the right Doctor for me. Not only is his work amazing but he is a very caring and genuine person.

I had a circumferential body lift, arm lift and liposuction on my thighs and thigh lift.

I feel very fortunate and blessed to have found Dr. Katzen!
