My plastic surgeon was out of town , so I scheduled an appointment to see Dr Begovic, since her office was in the same building, I asked for Juviderm injections on my face. Her response was “NO”. you already have enough product on your face. Such honesty from a plastic surgeon was a rarity. My previous Doctor would have given me the shots and pocketed the $600.
I subsequently visited her for Botox and the results was impeccable. In this instance, she also advised me against doing my forehead , just my crows feet, because she felt it looked more natural and she was right. I was so impressed with Dr Begovic’s work , I stopped seeing my old plastic Surgeon. I am particularly impressed by her warmth and ability to customize procedures to achieve the best results for me . So far, I have had Juviderm and Botox work done with Dr Catherine. However, in future, I intend to have Liposuction procedures with her.

Wow! Words cannot express how much gratitude i have for the exceptional work performed by Dr. Catherine Bevogic. Her bedside manner is speechless, as her credentials. She truly has your best interests at heart and will give you an honest answer. I truly love my new look and the ego boost. Thank you, Dr. Bevogic, from the bottom of my heart.

First, I would like to say that trusting someone to perform any type of cosmetic/elective surgery is really entrusting someone in the highest degree. I came to Dr. Begovic without being recommended, just from my search for a Doctor to give me back the “Old Me”. Upon first meeting Dr. Begovic, I felt a real sense of trust in her words and talent. I made the decision to not even look elsewhere as, I felt she was the artist that I wanted to sculpt my body. She has shown the highest degree of care and consideration I could have hoped for. Doctor (Cat) Begovic’s care and work ethic is 100% in favor of the patient. I would support the highest recommendation that a cosmetic Surgeon/Doctor could be given and I am one picky customer. Your search is over, just take the step to make the call and hope to get a reservation (soon) as she has a large following of satisfied patients.

I would highly recommend Dr. Begovic to my friends and family based on my experience.
Her training alone is very impressive- she went to Harvard and UCLA- and her bedside manner is an order of magnitude better than any plastic surgeon I’ve ever met. She is actually nice, and is so excited for you when you are happy with the results. She really cares about her patients.
She doesn’t run her office like a cattle call for boobs and noses, when you are in her office, it is calm and comfortable, and Dr. Begovic takes time to work with you, and to make sure she understands what you want and need, and to address all your concerns.
Her work is meticulous, and I know multiple patients of hers and we’re all very happy with everything from boobs to Botox. Don’t think I’ve ever heard anything but compliments for her work.

When I met Dr. Cat Begovic. one of luckiest days of my life…From the very first meeting, I was very comfortable with Dr Cat. She explained the procedure and set realistic expectations. Dr Begovic is a Perfectionist, just what I was searching for.. Well, my expectations were exceeded by far. I now have a washboard flat stomach, slim waistline and the ugly fat rolls are not longer in my back.. Being middle-age and menopausal I found it virtually impossible to loose my abdominal fat.. Following the procedure I went from wearing a size 10 to a size 6/8 in 4 weeks. Sounds impossible but believe me, It’s true…Dr Begovich skillfully and gently sculpted my body and restored my positive body image…. God Bless you Dr Cat, I’ll forever be grateful…. Carolyn

When I first decided I’d pursue the idea of getting a facelift, I planned that I would make 5 different appointments and talk to 5 different doctors. My first appointment just happened to be with Dr. Begovic. During my appointment Dr. Begovic answered every one of my many questions with a quick, exact answer. I felt so confident with Dr. Begovic I made my surgery appointment right then. I can’t believe how there really wasn’t that much pain. To the day, a month later, I can’t believe my eyes. First of all, I can’t see the scars. I’m still in awe. Before my surgery, I had an issue with my neck. Well after the surgery, it looks like my fourteen year old son’s neck. I am truly amazed. Dr. Begovic you are very talented. Thank you. Thank you.

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 so thrilled to write this review because I want to tell anyone out there searching for the best plastic surgeon… Dr. Catherine Huang Begovic is the one you’ve been looking for!!
I am an experienced professional in the health care industry, spending countless hours with doctors, in work and social environments…seeing the great, the so-so, and even the scary medical providers. All of which gives me the upmost respect for Dr. Begovic.
When you meet her, its obvious that she takes excellent care of herself-which was very important to me. Next, her kind bedside manner, her genuine interest in you as an individual, and the attention and time she takes to learn about your concerns and goals…well let’s just say you soon know you are in the best possible hands!!
I went to her for Botox in my forehead and for early signs of crows feet. ..and I was blown away with my results! She took her time, explained everything in detail,and took precautions to prevent any bruising. The results were immediately fabulous, and still are–feels like it took years of my face . I received so many compliments about how great I looked following my visit, without the obvious reason how or why!
I have recommended her services to my friends, and I even took my mom to see her when she was visiting me in Los Angeles. Dr Begovic called my mom several times after her procedure just to check up on her, even after she flew back east!! That said a lot about who she is as an MD and a person.

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.

Dr. Catherine Begovic is a true artist . I’m absolutely thrilled with my results. She gave me the body I dreamed of and didn’t have. She truly sculpted it. If you are looking for liposuction then she’s the one. She is so detail oriented and a perfectionist.Being a beautiful women herself truly understands what you want. Thank you Dr. Cat

After losing 90 lbs I had a “tummy tuck” performed by Dr. Huang-Begovic. I found her to be one of the most caring,supportive, thorough and excellently skilled physicians I have ever met. My surgery came out wonderfully and she continued to check in on me long after the procedure was completed just to make sure I was doing well. I will never go to anyone else for similar procedures and have recommended her to all my friends. I am currently planning my second procedure with her and have no doubt it will be done with the same skill and excellence as the first procedure.
I am a Nurse Practitioner and feel secure in my opinion of her qualifications, as I have seen and worked with many, many physicians, and know excellence when I see it.

Dr. Begovic is the best! I am 4 weeks into my procedure and could not be happier with the results. I haven’t felt or looked better in years, and neither the process nor the results would have been the same with another doctor. Dr. Begovic is thorough, professional, caring and knew exactly what I wanted and what results I wanted to see in my body. Going to Dr. Begovic was the best decision I’ve made in years and I recommend her to any one considering body sculpting/cosmetic improvements. She’s awesome!

I am writing this review because I feel anyone who is considering plastic surgery needs to go to Dr Begovic. I cannot stop talking about my experience. I was very apprehensive in going “under the knife” due to so many crazy horror stories I’ve heard but when I met Dr Begovic, I instantly knew she was the doctor for me! She is a perfectionist with an impressive background (Harvard/UCLA) who really cares about her patients and because she is a woman, she really understood what I was going through. Before, during and after my procedure, Dr Begovic was very attentive, friendly and caring about the way I wanted to look. The staff members at her office are also warm, friendly and inviting. Not like most offices in LA! It’s been 6 weeks since my surgery and my results are amazing. I get so many compliments and I’m so happy! I can’t recommend her enough!!!

Dr. Begovic was very helpful before my mom’s procedure. She had a wonderful bedside manner, and was available to answer all of our questions. Dr. Begovic allayed any concerns we had and took time to explain the procedure to us. She has a gentle and calming demeanor and a very understanding personality. We are very pleased with the results of the procedure and would definitely recommend Dr. Begovic to our friends and family.

I had a Gastric Bypass several years ago and my biggest post surgery problem was the excess ”wrinkled” skin and fat that literally hung from underneath my arms. After losing 160 lbs there definitely is going to be a lot of excess skin. I consulted with 2 Plastic Surgeons who both told me that going to the gym and working on my arms and biceps would do nothing and it would have to be surgically removed for the best results. I had been completely inhibited by the way my arms looked. I wore only long sleeve shirts, or hid my arms with sweaters. My confidence was nearly nothing, especially in summer, Psychologically, I was so sad inside. Sometimes I wouldn’t even leave the house because the excess skin and fat affected my self worth on a daily basis.
When I met with Dr. Huang-Begovic, I was pretty desperate. I just wanted the skin and fat ”all gone”, and I really didn’t care how she would do this… When I came home my arms were very sore. I went straight into the bathroom to look in the mirror. I was ”amazed”. I couldn’t believe it, there, underneath the heavy wrapping of plastic bandages, stood 2 arms, totally toned with bicep ”definition”. The little I was able to lift my arms, not 1 once of fat or skin.
I am so grateful to Dr. Huang-Begovic for an awesome job but more importantly, she is a very compassionate and kind person who really cares how the patient feels.

I recently underwent a breast reduction procedure with Dr. Huang. Being nervous about my surgery, Dr. Huang put me at ease and was very reassuring. Dr. Huang is truly a shining star. She has a wonderful and caring demeanor, and an excellent bedside manner. After the surgery, she was always available to answer any questions I had, and always made me feel that I was a top priority. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is having a procedure done, whether it’s their first time or if they have been down this road before. Dr. Huang-Begovic is truly extraordinary and I’m glad I chose her as my doctor.

I had surgery yesterday conducted by Dr. Begovic. I am absolutely amazed with the results in just one day! Firstly, I was reluctant because I feared the pain of traditional liposuction and the extensive recovery period.
Additionally, I was concerned because I was uncertain if Dr. Begovic could repair the insightful liposuction I had some years ago.To my amazement, I experienced no pain post surgery and my energy level was not impacted. After one day of recovery, I will return to work tomorrow. Quite honestly, I felt physically fit to go to work today, however, as a precautionary measure and per Dr. Begovics instructions, I stayed at home (I did many chores at home today .
I highly recommend…Dr. Begovic for anyone considering cosmetic enhancement… I am a confident woman, however, this surgery has already enhanced how great, rejuvenated and confident I feel about myself.

Dear Dr. Huang-Begovic,
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did on my implant replaement surgery.
My husband and I are both very impressed. Your professionalism along with your great personality really put our minds at ease before the surgery and the results afterward just confirmed our feelings! “They” look great!! What more can I say, also the fact that I have been pain free from the day of surgery is truly a testimony to what a great surgeon you really are!
Thanks again, Dr. Huang-Begovic! You are awesome!

I am very lucky the stars aligned so that I could meet Dr. Huang-Begovic. She gives exemplary care before, during and after surgery. Additionally she does everything in her power to make her patients feel as comfortable as possible. It is so crucial for your surgeon to understand the results you want, and she will not proceed until she does. My results are absolutely amazing – and I never get tired of hearing how amazing they are! Dr. Huang-Begovic is a wonderful and talented doctor and I would not hesitate to recommend her to my closest friends and family.

I went to 3 plastic surgeons for a consultation for abdominal liposuction. The moment I met Dr. Begovic, I just knew I could trust her. I had the procedure 2 days ago, and even with the swelling, my stomach looks great. Dr. Begovic is kind, caring and such a great surgeon! She is a perfectionist with her work, she kept working on me until it was perfect. I totally trust her and would highly recommend her to anyone thinking about liposuction. I wish I would have done this years ago. Thanks Dr. B.

Dr. Begovic is definitely one of the most honest, accomodating and professional surgeons I have met. I have worked in the medical profession for going on 8 years and couldn’t give a higher recommendation for anyone seeking cosmetic and/or reconstructive surgery. Dr. Begovic has a warm personality that always shows through her exceptional work and genuinely highly valued Dr./Patient relationship. I would not hesitate to let her care for my family and friends. Dr. Begovic, because of your help and advice I feel great when I look at myself in the mirror. Thank you.

I have never felt in more capable and caring hands than those of Dr. Catherine Huang-Begovic, MD. Dr. Begovic has performed two different, surgeries for me and I feel she is the most professional, caring, qualified surgeon I have ever known. I am a Nurse Practitioner and am so happy with the outcome of each surgery. She works hard to make the procedure a wonderful experience for her patients, so much so that they are treated like royalty after the procedure during recovery, and afterward are happy and excited about the results of the procedure and their new look. And, Dr. Begovic stays in contact with her patients before, during and after the procedure, always making sure that you are recovering well, happy with the procedure, and doing well after the surgery. I would never even consider going to a different Plastic Surgeon and would recommend Dr. Begovic without hesitation to anyone considering any procedure to improve their appearance. She is so very concerned and caring about all her patients, honest, easy to talk to and discuss all your concerns, and most importantly, her surgical and medical experience is well beyond those senior to her.
She is truly one in a million!

Dr. Begovic is terrific — caring, concerned, and a good listener. She is thoroughly up-to-date with all the newest technologies and treatments (and she knows the benefits and challenges of each) and she is great at managing expectations. I went to Dr. Begovic for injections, mainly, and she made it fast, easy, and she didn’t push any of it in any way. I love that she called me later that day after each treatment — that’s extremely rare in today’s busy world, and it meant so much to me!
Looking forward to continuing to work with her, and I recommend her highly.

I am delighted to write this review for Dr. Catherine Begovic, who I had the pleasure of first meeting at UCLA Medical Center last fall 2009, when she was completing her Residency in Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Begovic is extremely kind and patient and and took as much time as I needed to discuss my concerns.
I didn’t realize how dark the circles were under my eyes until I had the Lower Blepharoplasty surgery. Now, my eyes look fabulous and I look so much more refreshed. Dr. Begovic called me by phone for the first 2 days following surgery, just to check -in and make sure I was comfortable and was doing OK!!
I am planning to have Artefill Dermal Filler injected into the deep lines around the nose and chin area in the very near future.
Dr. Begovic is a topnotch physician and I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone. She also has a wonderful assistant, Veronica who is extremely helpful and makes you feel well-cared for and in good hands. Thank you for your wonderful work Dr. Begovic.

I had microbody countouring with Dr. Begovic last month. After only one month out post surgery, my results are astounding. The full results of my procedure will be seen over the coming months, but so far I am thrilled with my results. Dr. Begovic was awesome. Her bedside manner is warm and friendly and her keen attention to detail is bar none. Dr. Begovic is wonderful and following up with her patients post-op and you can tell she truly cares about her patients and their well-being. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Begovic is a fantastic and thoroughly caring surgeon… I am 48 years old and know I will never wear a bikini again but now I am confident and proportionate in my body shape. Dr. B is so genuine and caring I can’t rave anymore about her! I have worked with physicians for many years and you’d be surprised at the number of doctors, surgeons especially, that have no bed side manner. Dr. Begovic is a total exception to that stereotype. She was more excited over my results than I was at first! My first attempt at surgery had to be canceled due to very high blood pressure on the day of. Dr. Begovic took a personal interest in making sure that I was even a candidate for this by having me follow up with my personal physician in another state and even took time out of her busy schedule to have telephone conversations with my GP and the Cardiologist I ended up seeing. Once cleared for surgery I was able to have it. I never felt rushed and she made sure my boyfriend and I had access to her anytime we needed post op. It has been such a boost to my self esteem and I will be forever grateful to Dr. Begovic!

Words can not express my gratitude for Dr. Begovic. Her experience and caring nature made my experience rewarding and comfortable. I lost a lot of weight and really didnt know what to expect when researching plastic surgery. She explained every detail of the procedure I was interested in and due to a prior medical issue she suggested what was best for me. I am her biggest advocate and looking forward to my next procedure. I have never felt and looked this great ever!

My husband, a nurse, researched to find the best doctor to do my procedure and I believe he found the best in Dr. Begovic. She and her staff are warm, friendly, professional, and made me feel very welcomed and comfortable. They took a lot of time to explain everything and answer my questions. It was an amazing, personalized experience. The concern and after care communication made me feel that I was more than just a patient… After years of feeling self conscious about my appearance, I look great in my clothes. I’m still amazed when I look in the mirror how good I look for a 59 year old. My friends have been very impressed as well.
