As I have mentioned before, fat can be a very valuable natural filler in cosmetic surgery. I use it for grafting to areas like the buttocks to build volume or to create a better shape. It can also be used in revision liposuction cases to fill in dents or hollow areas. It’s natural, it’s safe (when done correctly) and it Read More…

Liposuction for Body Reshaping A Replacement for Diet and Exercise? Many people get liposuction for reshaping – even when they have dieted and exercised, genetically they have pockets of fat that just won’t go away. For example, for this patient, Lipo helped create an hourglass shape that may have been impossible otherwise. I tell my patient that liposuction isn’t a Read More…

Bao NguyenOne of the best doctors ever. Thank you so much Dr. Catherine!
LucyI had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Cat Begovic on Oct. 5, 2017... I remember it took me 3.5 mos. to get an appointment with her & when the BIG day finally came, I was super excited to see her. The big day came, I drove 3 hrs. to see her, despite the huge L.A traffic, I made it on time. When I finally found the office, my first impression of the office was "wow"! Then I introduced myself to Veronica & two other wonderful front staff members & was handed the ipad so i can register in the patient portal. Sadly I waited over an 1hr. before I was taken to the exam room where the patient coordinator asked me questions about the procedure i am ingerested in. She mentioned how busy it had been & apologized for the long wait. She then saw that I was interested in the mommy make over which is the breast, tummy and lipo & asked what was the #1 procedure that i wanted to focus on, what brothers me the most about my body because she couldn't attend to all the questions & she only does one procedure at a time. So i was disappointed about that... I had to have an option of what i could discuss with the doctor, so i chose the breast. She stepped out of the room & then Dr. Cat came in with her consultant & introduced herself (again, i was super excited to see her). We briefly talked about what I wanted & mentioned that only 1 procedure can be done at a time & had me undress in front of her. Based on that, in her opinion she thought the tummy tuck was a better choice after evaluating my body. Being who she is i went ahead & trusted her & went with her opinion. I was taken to another room after i changed so we could talk about the estimated cost & was sent on my way home. I was in shock for 2 reasons. #1 the little time spent with me & #2, the surgery cost. Yes she's great at what she does. I guess for that reason i expected more courtesy on her behalf. (She's much nicer on snap chat) When i scheduled the appointment & was told i could discuss anything i wanted with her & the consult was going to be anywhere between 1.5-2hrs. Iong to ensure my satisfaction & then a confirmation e-mail was sent to me with the information i just shared. Honestly, i feel disappointed that because she spent more time with other patient's, she wasn't able to give me my 1.5-2hr. to discuss any other concerns i had as it was mentioned in my e-mail confirmation as well as when i scheduled the appointment. Not sure if it was worth my drive & hight cost of appt.
Jaimie HuynhI can't recommend Dr. Cat enough. She is the best and gives it her all to making you look perfect :) I don't trust anyone but her!
Indi WijethilakeVery skilled talented plastic surgeons in the industry
Joseph InciongVery happy! Thank you dr cat!
Gretchen GenatoI cannot speak highly enough regarding Dr. Cat Begovic’s stellar personality, intelligence, kindness, and surgical skills. I am currently 3 month post-op from a full abdominalplasty (tummy tuck) with a mons pubis lift done in February 2017. I previously had liposuction of the flanks, upper back and mons pubis with a fat transfer to the buttocks for a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) in May 2016. I had my consultation with Dr. Cat about 2 months prior to my initial BBL and lipo surgery. She was attentive to what I was saying and my areas of concern. I was unsure about what I really wanted for my surgery, but found Dr. Cat a valuable asset in my decision making. I initially wanted to just have a tummy tuck, but was interested in what exactly the BBL procedure entailed. After thoughtful discussion and consideration, Dr. Cat and I devised a plan to first get the BBL done first and have a second surgery to do a TT with a mons pubis lift. I previously had liposuction approximately 10 years prior to my surgery with Dr. Cat and I can tell you that I cannot remember my doctor’s name who performed my surgery and can only remember one follow-up. With Dr. Cat, she takes pride in her art, which is my body, and made sure that I had follow-ups the next day, next week, and subsequent weeks to ensure proper healing and to answer any questions I may have regarding recovery. Dr. Cat and her staff were very prompt in returning calls/emails and are always so pleasant when discussing anything. Regarding my recovery, the BBL surgery itself was not painful post-surgery. The only issue I had was that I have large breasts and a lower back problem. Laying on my belly was the only cause of lower back pain, but my surgery and recovery itself was great! With my tummy tuck, I opted to stay at Serenity Surgical Center and am thankful that Dr. Cat strongly recommended this for post-op care. I could not imagine my friends caring for me with such a major surgery for the first 24 hours. I honestly was up and walking within hours of arriving to Serenity and making rounds walking the halls. The staff were astonished at how active I was and how minimal pain I had after just having a tummy tuck. I did not need my narcotic medication (Norco 5mg/325mg) after 2 days. The rest of my recovery was great with expected discomforts, but everyone around me were impressed with how fast I recovered. I can only thank Dr. Cat for how easy my recovery was for me. Working in the medical field as a nurse practitioner, I can honestly say that Dr. Cat and her staff are exemplary in their field of practice and business. If you want to get a surgery done right, precise, with the most attentive care to detail and your well-being, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Cat!
Vanessa RichDr Cat is amazing! Initially I was very intimidated going for a consult. (I mean have you seen her!) I am a mother of 4 and the pregnancies really took a toll on my body. I've never been to a plastic surgeon before but researched Dr. Cat and based on her reviews was willing to interview with her and see if she was a good fit for me. I am so glad I did. Dr Cat is not only warm and welcoming she also made me feel comfortable. At the consultation, Dr Cat was full of information and very willing to spend the time to answer any and all of my questions. She was not in any way attempting to 'suggest' surgeries for me which was one of my fears going into a plastic surgeon's office. I decided to have a full abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with liposuction of the flanks, mons pubis lift and belly button hernia repair in Dec. of 2016. This was an 8 hour surgery! She was meticulous in her approach, she tightened every layer of muscle in my abs (i know this because i saw a video of it) the incision line is so low that I can wear almost anything and you'd never know I had a procedure. My recovery was quick, my pain was minimal-no narcotic pain meds, my body was just sore. I wish I was able to post pics here because the end result is amazing. My abs and core are tight and my new belly button is picture perfect! Around February 2017 I returned to Dr Cat for a breast augmentation and while we decided on a size in the office (she took meticulous measurements to ensure I got the right size for my body), I was having second thoughts leading up to the surgery. Dr Cat was available to me at any time. We had multiple phone conversations discussing my concerns, I emailed her pictures of what my expectations were and Dr Cat ordered multiple implants for my day of surgery having a game plan A, B and C. During surgery Dr cat took the time to 'size' me with the different implants to make sure I was getting the look I wanted. There was minimal pain post op, just some muscle cramping. My implants have dropped, and they are EXACTLY what I wanted! Words cant express the gratitude i have for Dr Cat's abilities! She gave me my pre baby body back and then some. To be able to look at myself in to mirror or wear a bathing suit and be proud again is priceless. I can't say enough great things about her. She goes the extra mile for her patients. She is truly an amazing individual! I recommend her to anyone looking to have a procedure.
VanessaDr cat was very meticulous in my abdominoplasty, liposuction and breast augmentation. She took the time to make sure I felt comfortable and was happy. She always went out of her way for me as a patient returning phone calls to answer any questions or concerns I'd had. I recommend her to anyone I know!
Yvette BaroianDr Begovic's work is truly exceptional. She listens to one's concerns and questions & has an amazing light touch. Plus she is very approachable . Her work is superb.
Monique MichelleDr Begovic is such a sharp, caring doctor who knows exactly what she's doing and how to do it at the highest level. Now that I have met her and experienced how great she is, I can't imagine ever going to anyone else! Clairbel and Donna in the office are amazing and so sweet helping out with whatever is needed. Love love this place !!
Gretchen GDr. Begovic recently performed surgery on me and I have nothing but praises for her. She and her staff are beyond professional and are very attentive to your needs. I'm disheartened by the first review on this site. I am a medical professional and I was and still am impressed with her in-depth information and attentiveness she provided me during our consultation. My results, though still fresh, have been greatly admired by those who were aware of my surgery! She is definitely a top rate surgeon!
Ghoncheh NazarianDr. Begovic is amazing. I can't rave enough about how amazing her work is and how amazing of a person she is. She really values building relationships with her patients. I became familiar with her after asking a family member who works as a surg tech in the OR where all the BH plastic surgeons work, about who to go to for a procedure I was considering. Without any hesitation, she said Dr. Begovic was the only surgeon she would recommend to family. She recommended Dr. Begovic because of her results, her cleanliness, and her bedside manners. Dr. Begovic personally closes all of her incisions very precisely and meticulously, she's amazing about having everything done perfectly. She also answers any questions or concerns you may have at all hours of the day. There would be times I called her office after business hours, and was put in contact with her. I would email her questions at odd hours of the night and she would respond very quick. It made me feel extremely comfortable and I was reassured that I was in the right hands. I had visited other doctors and hadn't felt right about choosing them, but once I walked out of Dr. Begovic's consult room, I knew I was in the right hands and ready to book. Her staff is also so amazing and helpful. They are very diligent, kind, on top of things, and made me feel welcome from the moment I had walked into the office. I knew it was just right. I am so extremely happy with my results. Thank you Dr. Begovic ! You are amazing.
Afa ShafaI tried few Doctors before Dr. Begovic and nobody is comparable to my dear Dr. Begovic, She is always extremely careful and caring . I have and will recommand her to all my friends
Ms. VenturaDr. Begovic is beyond fantastic. Her credentials and all reviews do not provide sufficient credit for her marvelous work and professionalism. As a surgeon, I found her to be detailed, precised, and meticulous. I first contacted her through Facebook and she immediately replied. I was astonished to see how she quickly answered and immediately showed interest in helping me regain my confidence and figure. I knew from that moment, that she was my surgeon to go. Two months after, I went from NYC to LA to see her. From my first contact with her and even now after the surgery, 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 wholes. 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 visible. 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!
