This patient is a 38 year old female from the Chandler, Arizona area who presented to my Paradise Valley, Arizona area medical practice with complaints regarding her breasts.  This patient had undergone prior breast augmentation by another surgeon and she was unhappy with her unnatural appearance.  The breasts were too full in the upper portion and droopy in the lower parts of the breasts.

To correct this patient's issues, I recommended a number of maneuvers.  First of all, I recommended switching from overfilled saline implants to softer, more natural appearing silicone gel implants. I felt that a broader implant would provide a more natural appearance.  I also felt that I would need to lower the implants on the chest to create a natural slope at the upper breast.  I also recommended tightening the lateral (outer) breast pockets to prevent the implants from shifting outward on the chest.  Finally, I felt that tightening of the breast skin around the areola (circumareolar mastopexy) would correct the droopiness of the lower breast.

Because this patient wanted to increase her breast size, I agreed to modestly increase the size of her implants to a size that would still be reasonably natural for her body shape.

I performed a complex breast revision with lateral pocket tightening, internal lowering of the breast pocket, exchange of saline implants for Mentor smooth, round, moderate-plus profile 600cc implants, and a circumareolar mastopexy.  The patient did very well after surgery, and we were both very happy with the significant improvement in the shape and symmetry of her breasts.

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!
