I did it! I lost 150lbs through diet and exercise. The only problem was I looked worse at 160 lbs than I did at 303lbs. I had so much excess skin between my legs and at the apron of my belly.

I interviewed with several plastic surgeons but it wasn't until meeting Dr. Katzen that I felt secure enough to schedule such a major and elective surgery. I found Dr. Katzen to
be the total package. He offered me both experience with full body lifts and a warm and caring bedside manner. I met with two of his former patients and was confident that he had the skills to remove the excess skin from my body and re-shape me into something I
could be proud of.

It's been three years since my surgery. In the beginning I gained a few pounds as my body found its natural set point and remained there. I was nervous to see Dr. Katzen again because I've had experiences with doctors being less than kind about weight gain. But Dr.Katzen was comforting and assured me that my weight gain was not only minor but normal. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon that will offer you a high skill level, a warm heart and beautiful new body....Dr. Katzen is your man!
