After having gastric bypass in 1992, I thought my biggest achievement would be walking and talking at the same time. In 2007 I found myself 151 lbs lighter and ready to set my sights on removing the excess skin from my body. I lived with the skin quite some time, until I one day realized that this journey for me was not complete. I made an appointment to see Dr. Katzen; from the minute I met him and his staff, my mind was made up. When I hit the door, I felt a sense of serenity and peace. I knew I was in good hands.

Dr. Katzen walks you through every step, so there is never an uneasy feeling. His office was in constant contact with my general practitioner to make sure that I was in the absolute best health before surgery. I had surgery December 6, 2007. The staff was waiting for me and ready when I came in, Dr. Katzen was right by my side, took pictures, marked me up for surgery and off I went. My daughter was in the waiting area and they came out every few minutes to make her feel at ease. When it was all over they brought her in and gave her a run down of my vitals and a clean bill of health. I woke up 7 lbs lighter and now I have a whole new self confidence. I went home and any concerns that developed no matter how minor, I called Dr. Katzen and he called back immediately. One best thing was that I was able to donate my skin. I am blessed that my source of pain, my excessive skin, will be used as a blessing to someone else. It doesn't get much better than that.

Summer is almost here and I am actually buying short sleeves. I thank God every day for the anointed hands of Dr. Katzen, he is a true gift.
