This patient is an 18 year old male who lost approximately 100 pounds with diet and exercise. Due to his weight loss, he noted a large amount of excess skin on his abdomen, and to a lesser extent, his chest as well. This skin would not shrink to its original size no matter how much he exercised. As a result, he felt very uncomfortable being shirtless in public.

This patient came to my practice in order to improve his abdominal contour. He was not particularly concerned with his chest skin, so we did not address this area surgically.

For this patient, I recommended an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) with liposuction of the flanks to improve his "love handle" area. I felt he would be unlikely to need internal abdominal wall tightening because he had very strong abdominal muscles, and his problem was mainly due to loose skin and some excess fat.

I performed a full tummy tuck with liposuction of the flanks (approximately 350cc of fat was removed from each side. After surgery, he healed very well and was extremely happy with his result. He is comfortable being shirtless in public, and is continuing to lose weight and improve his physique.

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!
