Horrible experience with filler

If you value your looks as everyone does, DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR! I went in for a Groupon deal he is running for Juvederm filler in September. I've had this done under my eyes before and it was fine. With this person the very next day it was disastrous. I had balls under my eyes and looked horrible! I texted him photos the next day and he said, massage. He is greedy and saw money coming in and injected too much, thus causing the balls underneath my eyes. The last doctor went gentler and the results were awesome. I've spent the last month trying to work with this so-called doctor and I've looked a mess for an entire month. Who goes into what seems a legitimate doctor with good reviews and gets this? This is negligence on his part. As a doctor there is the oath to take care of all patients. His final response to me of the results of his injections and the way I now look is, "well that's your opinion". What doctor would say that? It should be "I'm gonna do everything in my power to make sure you look better". He wants to charge me MORE for fixing a mistake that was made with his hand. I am now permanently scarred and disfigured. I look freaky. Not the result you would expect or anyone should have to live with. Please beware. You will not matter to him unless you're willing to pay more money. He brought a staff person in with him at my last visit just moments ago. Afterward they both just walked out and left me sitting there in this room. I had to go out to the front on my own and ask, "is that it"? "Is this how he going to leave me"? The girl who was the witness listened to me at the front as I spoke and showed her these photos. This is not normal and I will report him to every agency and board I can think of. I said, "you as a person, would you want to end up like this"?

Was referred to the best plastic surgeon by a bariatric center

I am extremely picky when selecting a plastic surgeon for myself. After all, this is the person that is going to cut me open. I consulted with three surgeons and left their offices feeling frustrated. Finally, a bariatric center where I did not have surgery with, referred me to Dr. Katzen. I still wasn't sure until I met him. He gave me a feeling of calmness and security from the very first meeting. So glad I was referred to him.

Much needed tummy tuck

I met Dr. Katzen when my step sister had surgery with him. I accompanied her at all her visits. I saw first hand how great of a surgeon he is so when it was my time to have a tummy tuck, I knew exactly who to go to for my procedure. Dr. Katzen is a very good surgeon and has great bedside manner. I'd recommend him to anyone.

I love my new body after 360 body lift

I've been morbidly obese and lost a massive amount of weight. I had 360 body lift with Dr. Katzen. He is a very gift surgeon. For once in my adult life, I feel like I have blended in with the "norm". My clothes fit me so much better now too. I love my new body!
