This patient is a female in her late 40's who presented to my  office with complaints of back, neck and shoulder pain due to large pendulous breasts. The patient was also noted to have severe asymmetry as well as significant ptosis. I felt a bilateral breast reduction would give the patient significant improvement in her back, neck and shoulder symptoms. Given the patient's relatively weak tissues and lack of fullness in the upper chest, I felt that fat grafting in the upper and medial poles would help create a more aesthetic shape. The patient wished to have liposuction to the flanks and I felt this would be a good donor site. The patient was also noted to have an indentation of the right flank due to prior injury and I felt this could be fat grafted to improve the contouring.

I performed a breast reduction removing 436 grams from the right breast and 282 grams from the left due to her asymmetry.  Liposuction of the flanks was performed and the fat was processed and reinjected into the upper breasts and the flank irregularity.  Approximately 30 cc of fat was injected into the right flank irregularity and 90 cc into each upper and medial breast area. The patient was extremely happy with her new appearance and the improvement in her physical symptoms.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update


Dr. Cohen and his staff strongly believes that your health and safety are of the utmost importance. Additionally, Dr. Cohen feels it is his duty to do everything possible to help reduce the strain on the medical system while the coronavirus issue is present.

To that end, we are temporarily closing our office and postponing surgeries as well as in-person visits until further notice. The coronavirus escalation occurred just as Dr. Cohen was transitioning to the office of Dr. Ben Talei, the world renowned facial plastic surgeon, so once in-person examinations begin again, this is where consultations will take place (www.beverlyhillscenter.com).

In the meantime, the office will remain available for any email, telephone, or video inquiries. Additionally, due to cancelling all surgery and in-person appointments, Dr. Cohen has increased availability for virtual consultations. Feel free to schedule a virtual consultation today to explore your future aesthetic surgery options and receive expert recommendations from Dr. Cohen. Please note that 100% of all consultation fees will be donated to the Disaster Philanthropy in order to help those less fortunate during these difficult times (www.DisasterPhilanthropy.org). Stay safe and healthy and Dr. Cohen looks forward to seeing you virtually, and hopefully soon in person!
