This is a 31 year old athlete who came to my medical office seeking a breast augmentation and liposuction. Her breasts had always been disproportionate to her lower body, and she was interested in balancing out her upper and lower body. At the same time, since she was a competitive athlete, she wished to have natural-appearing, modest sized breasts.

Regarding her abdomen and lower body, despite daily exercise and a good diet, she had a few areas of diet resistant fat, which is often genetically inherited. In this patient's case, her lower abdomen was the primary focus of her dissatisfaction, but she also wanted improved contouring of her hips, flanks and thighs as well.

For her breast augmentation, I recommended placing the implants under the pectoralis muscles for the most natural appearing result. Placing implants under the muscle also allows the pectoralis muscles to massage the implants, reducing the risk of capsular contraction (firm scar tissue around the implants). I also recommended placing the implant through a "periareolar" incision (underneath the areola). In my opinion, this incision is extremely well hidden, and allows a direct approach to the breast pocket for maximum precision during surgery. Her implants were Mentor smooth, round, saline breast implants filled to 290cc.

For the liposuction, I used a power assisted liposuction for maximum accuracy and to reduce tissue damage and bruising. Approximately 300cc of aspirate was removed from the abdomen, approximately 150cc were removed from each flank and outer thigh, and approximately 75cc were removed from each inner thigh. In the end, this patient obtained a beautiful, natural, proportionate result that did not inhibit her from high-level athletics.

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!
