ABOUT OUR PRACTICE
Whether you are considering undergoing a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, or a larger-scale surgical operation, selecting a plastic surgeon to perform any aesthetic enhancement procedure is perhaps the most pivotal decision you will have to make, and this decision should not be taken lightly. Important factors to consider when choosing a plastic surgeon include: board certification, credentials, reputation, hospital affiliations, and fellowship training.
Board certification is one of the most important factors to consider when selecting a plastic surgeon; however, there are many boards of varying legitimacy, which can add to a patient’s confusion when checking a doctor’s credentials. With a private practice located in Beverly Hills, California, plastic surgeon J. Timothy Katzen, M.D. is board certified by the only true plastic surgery board—the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Additionally, Dr. Katzen is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), one of the most widely respected surgical organizations in the world. Dr. Katzen is also a Fellow of the International College of Surgeons (FICS).
When a plastic surgeon is affiliated with a well-respected hospital, this generally means that the surgeon has passed the intense scrutiny of that hospital’s medical system in order to achieve hospital medical privileges. Dr. Katzen is affiliated with a number of prestigious hospitals, including the widely-renowned Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and his reputation for surgical excellence has made Dr. Katzen a highly sought after expert in the field of plastic surgery, as evidenced by the fact that he has been a featured expert on ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, PBS, and TLC’s documentary-style program “The Real Skinny.”
Plastic surgery fellowship training is an optional component in a physician’s medical education. Dr. Katzen’s devotion to providing the best possible treatment and care for his patients is demonstrated by the fact that he elected to participate in three different plastic surgery fellowships following the completion of his medical education. Dr. Katzen’s extensive educational and training background has equipped him with the skill-set to provide his patients with safe, successful procedures utilizing state of the art equipment and cutting edge surgical techniques.
