After working hard to lose my weight the old fashion way (as a non-bariatic patient), I was very disappointed that as a result of weight loss my body wasn't returning to what I had hoped for.  During my journey to lose weight, I watched some TV show that was about a person who lost 600 lbs to help inspire me. The doctor who did the skin removal surgery happened to be Dr. Katzen. I liked his approach during the TV show so I wrote down his name for the future. When my weight loss was complete, I went looking for Dr. Katzen's website. 

I called for an appointment and eventually my tummy tuck/thigh lift was done. The results were outstanding. Recovery wasn't pain free, but Dr. Katzen and his staff were always available to answer my questions. They seem to care about what they're doing and know that helps people finish what they started.  Part of the reason I chose him was because his practice centers around weight loss patients. I figured if he can work on patients with more extreme weight loss, I knew he could help me. Most importantly, Dr. Katzen and his staff are honest. Knowing full information about what is about to happen when it comes to surgery is very important to me. They make sure that people understand this is not miracle work and there are limits to what can be done. They tell you an honest description of what the results can be.  I was a bit scared as I had never had any surgery in my life, but they helped me be comfortable and showed great patience with all the questions I had. My experience was a good one and I would recommend Dr. Katzen to anyone.
