This patient is a 59 year old female from the Washington, D.C. area who flew in to my practice with interest in liposuction surgery. Specifically, this patient had significant excess fat in the inner and outer thigh regions as well as in the inner knee areas.

After examining this patient, I felt that she had areas of diet and exercise resistant fat that would benefit significantly from power assisted liposuction. One downside to this patient's situation was the thinness and laxity of her skin. This lack of elasticity cannot be corrected with liposuction, however, I felt that debulking the areas of fat would still make a significant difference in this patient's appearance, and would particularly help how she fits into clothes.

I performed power assisted liposuction and removed almost 600cc of fat from each outer thigh, approximately 250cc from each inner thigh, and approximately 50cc from each inner knee.

The patient recovered very well, and has noticed a huge difference in how she looks and fits into clothes. With regards to her cellulite and loose leg skin, (which are not corrected with liposuction) we are considering a non-invasive treatment called Vela-Shape, which uses infrared light, radio frequency waves, and direct suction on the skin to tighten and smooth the skin, and reduce dimpling.

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!
