Many patients ask me when they can workout after surgery. Although the exact time frame varies slightly from surgery to surgery, there are some general guidelines. Patients should start light walking immediately after surgery – nothing strenuous, just short walks around the room or home every other hour. This is good for the circulation and helps prevent blood clots. After Read More…

Many people are confused about what the gummy bear implant is. Gummy bear implants are form stable silicone gel implants. They are shaped, textured implants that retain their shape even if the implant shell is broken. The gel is so firm it actually feels solid – like a gummy bear. These were FDA approved in 2013. This is different from Read More…

As a woman, I know the importance of having a full buttocks for the overall contour and proportion to the body. A Brazilian Butt Lift involves a natural fat transfer to the buttocks. In contrast to buttocks implants, your own fat is soft, natural feeling, and won’t shift overtime like many implants do. Because a Brazilian Butt Lift is combined Read More…

It takes a lot of unglamorous work on the road to a glamorous career.” Since it’s Monday and following my IG tradition, I love starting it off with some inspiration with the hope that it may help at least one person get through the week with whatever they are doing or going through.

Breast implant revision surgeries are some of the most challenging surgeries I perform. Often times my patients present with recurrent scar tissue (capsular contracture) making the breasts hard and painful, asymmetry, the implants falling into the armpit because the original pocket was too big, or bottoming out – the implant falling down onto the abdominal skin. Each patient must be Read More…

Happy Monday. This is a very important post so please take a moment to read it. Plastic Surgery like any other surgery is very serious and nothing that should be taken for granted just because it is elective surgery. A huge percentage of the procedures I perform are revisions from earlier surgeries performed by other surgeons. Revisions are more complex Read More…

Beautiful Result, Happy Patients
Real reviews from real patients. See testimonials.
My surgery was flawless and I feel (and look) great
Meeting Dr. Begovic is, medically, the best thing that has ever happened to me! I was in dire need of a complicated breast surgery and “perfection” is what I got. Dr. Cat is no doubt an amazing doctor to all her clients, but being a woman, she understood where I was coming from EXACTLY. I couldn’t have asked for a doctor that was more insistent in knowing exactly what my expectations and desires were, and for that I am forever thankful. Needless to say my surgery was flawless and I feel (and look) great.
I have continued to see Dr. Begovic for my other concerns, primarily tending to the aging process. I trust her advice implicitly. Furthermore, she is welcoming and encourages you to stay in touch, and open to fielding questions at any time (and I have many!). Communication is so important in the doctor/patient relationship, and she exceeds all expectations. Her office and staff are lovely as well! She has my highest possible recommendation.
I am extremely happy with the result
I just had a procedure done with Dr. Begovic last week and I am extremely happy with the results. She is wonderful and knows exactly what her patients want and she delivers. Love her personality and love her work. If you want perfect results, trust that Dr. Begovic will give you that.
Intelligent, kind, professional doctor
Dr.Catherine Huang-Begovic is a wonderful doctor and person. She is professional and caring. She strives to get you the best possible results from your surgery at the most reasonable price.She went to bat for me and ensured Mentor(the breast implant company) reimbursed me for my old breast implants as one of them had a slow leak.This was not my first experience with plastic surgery but it was by far the best. Two other(male) surgeons told me nothing was wrong with my old breast implants except scar tissue and they were both wrong. As Dr. Huang-Begovic suspected and as the lab results proved there was something wrong. Thanks to her its all fixed now and looks way better. She explains every detail of the surgery to you and spends far more time with you than other doctors. So many plastic surgeons have one way to perform a procedure (very cookie cutter) but she really spends the time to know your unique body and your specific desires and performs surgery based on them both. Dr. Huang-Begovic even came into her office on a Sunday to address a concern I had about the surgery, however everything was fine. She really is thorough and her staff are also very caring. If you want an intelligent, kind, professional doctor choose Dr. Huang-Begovic
THE most amazing doctor I have ever met
I cannot give Dr. Begovic enough stars! She literally is THE most amazing doctor I have ever met. I came to her in a ton of pain and extremely unhappy with the outcome of my previous botched surgery and she listened to everything that I said and wanted. She addressed all of my concerns and exceeded far beyond all of my expectations.
Not only is she a wonderful doctor but she is an amazing person, warm, caring, extremely knowledgeable, and dedicated.
I am so grateful to have met her and I am definitely going to her for all of my future needs. And you bet all of my friends and family will be referred to her as well.
Dr. Begovic is Wonderful!
Dr. Begovic is Wonderful!
I had 5 scars. 4 c-section scars and 1 botched tummy tuck scar (from a different doctor). I had gained weight and also had a muffin top. I was miserable about my appearance. Dr. Begovic performed liposuction and scar revision. I could not be happier! The outcome is better than I expected. My blouses fit so nicely and I even bought a 2 piece swimsuit! You are in good hands with Dr. Cat. She is so caring, and listens carefully to what her patients want.
Dr. Begovic is intelligent and talented
Words cannot express how blessed I was to have Dr. Begovic as my surgeon. She is intelligent and talented. Even more impressive is her kindness and compassion. She went the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable. She even made a special appointment with me New Year’s Day to help me post surgery. She is also very open to feedback. It is clear she is a life long learner. She would often follow up after our appointments letting me know she had investigated new approaches to healing and medication. I cannot recommend Dr. Begovic enough!!
A true sculpturist
Dr. Begovic is beyond fantastic. All the reviews read prior to meeting her, do not provide sufficient credit for her marvelous work and professionalism.
As a surgeon, I found her to be detailed, precised, and meticulous. A true sculpturist. I first contacted her through Facebook and within an hour she had replied. I was astonished to see how she quickly answered and showed her interest in helping me regain my confidence and figure. At that moment, I knew she was my surgeon to go.
Two months after, I went from NYC to LA to see her. Her patient care is superb. She has maintained constant communication with me and has provided a genuine care of my satisfaction and well-being. In 2010, I went to the Dominican Republic to have lipo- sculpture. Unfortunately, the surgeon in the Dominican Republic was very aggressive and I was left with lots of ridges on my abdomen, over-suction places and lots of scar tissues.
Dr. Begovic performed a lipo-revision of my full abdomen and flanks. She was very detailed in looking at my body and even during the surgery she ensured that she could target anything that was bothering me. She worked persistently and hard (almost broke her hand) to ensure that she removed as much scar tissue as she could. She also did some fat grafting to fill in the holes. She ensured that I had realistic expectations of my results and explained with detail the procedure. After the surgery, I had my first visit, and the results were. I cried of joy and happiness. It has been three days since my surgery and I can attest that her dedication and perfectionist demeanor has made me “perfect”. Thank you Dr. Begovic! I am forever grateful!
She is an incredible person and doctor
First of all, there is not enough room to express my gratitude and praise for Dr. Begovic. She is an incredible person and doctor. I am an out of town patient, and Dr. Begovic spoke to me for an hour before we ever even met, just to talk over the procedure and review my photos. She is incredibly honest and she really shows true compassion for her patients. I had liposuction 9 years ago by a surgeon who “botched” me. He left me looking truly deformed, all the lumps and bumps, hills and valleys, and a LOT of scar tissue in my flanks and abdomen. I was told by many different doctors that I need a tummy tuck to fix this…..needless to say, I didn’t want a tummy tuck if I didn’t need one. I saw Dr. Begovic on the Dr’s show and she did a liposuction revision on a patient and I was literally blown away, hope was finally in the horizon for me! After having 3 kids, I decided to contact Dr. Begovic. She was incredibly detailed about what happens during liposuction, she explained the risk of doing liposuction on patients who already had liposuction and was very upfront that I may not be able to fix all that was “botched”. I felt very confident after speaking with her, reading her reviews, and seeing her photo gallery, so I booked my surgery. Here I am, 5 days later, a HUGE smile on my face. I look amazing, yup, I said it 🙂 Amazing! Not only did she fix what happened in my prior mess of a surgery, but she gave me a waist that I’ve never had, and she took the “flap” away in my arms. Dr. Begovic called me the evening of my surgery to check on me. She saw me the next morning (on a Saturday) and called me again on Sunday to check in. I saw her one more time before I flew back home and everything was spot on. If you have the chance to have her as your surgeon, then take it, you will not regret it. She is amazing as a Dr., and even more amazing as a person! Thank you Dr. Begovic, you are a life changer and a blessing!!!
Dr. Begovic is amazing
Dr. Begovic is amazing. I came to her really scared and panicked due to a flattened breast implant. My implant was 13 years old and I couldn’t find the doctor that had performed the surgery. I didn’t know what to think or do or what to expect from her. I came to her and she made me feel 100% better about what I was going through. She literally holds your hand through every step of the way – – that to me is priceless. I remember her calling me everyday before my surgery to make sure I was doing okay and her calling me several times days after the surgery. Her professionalism, diligence and compassion assured me that I was in the right hands. She is heaven sent and I feel completely blessed to have had her as my doctor. In addition to Dr. Begovic being a stellar surgeon, she has an amazing team that works for her. As you walk into that office, everyone there is so welcoming. I can’t tell you how much that meant to me, specially when I was scared. Dr. Begovic and staff ROCK!!!
I had a great experience with Dr. Begovic and the surgery in general
Positive Labiaplaty reviews are rare, which is why I want to write this review. I was unsure about this surgery because it is a fairly new surgery and has a lot of mixed reviews and opinions. I set up a consultation with Dr. Begovic to get more info. She told me this is a simple and low discomfort surgery. I did not really believe her, but I decided to get the surgery. She was right, I had no pain and VERY VERY little discomfort. It was a little uncomfortable when I went to the bathroom the first few days, but I think I was being overly cautious. I stayed in bed for 2 days and iced the area often.
I recommend this surgery to anyone who is self conscious about this part of their body. I had a great experience with Dr. Begovic and the surgery in general. I am a month and a half post surgery and could not be happier.
Four weeks post-op and I am very happy and pleased with the result
Dr Begovic recently performed liposuction procedure on me. When I went in for the initial consult, she was easy to talk to, and it was clear I would be in very capable hands. Her breadth of experience spoke volumes. She walked me through the procedure easily, answered questions I had confidently and gave me realistic advice/expectations. She is extremely professional and very detailed oriented. Recovery and post op were also excellent. Four weeks post-op and I am very happy and pleased with the result. I am looking forward to our next appointment to show off the new/improved me!
I recently went to Dr. Begovic for botox this is my my 2nd visit to her for this treatment. I never thought i would be one to have Botox done but due to working the night shift and not sleeping well it began to this take a toll on the appearance of my face.
My girlfriend gets her botox done with Dr. Begovic and is always very happy (never looks over done) So she convinced me to give it a try. After the first treatment i definitely saw the difference Dr. Begovic explained into detail with me and made me feel at ease because i was a bit nervous . She is a great doctor and now i am a recurring patient.
