This is a 60 year old patient who came to my practice seeking correction of excess skin. She had lost over 150 pounds with a gastric bypass surgery, and had problems with hanging skin of the abdomen, breasts, arms, back, buttocks, legs and face.

Given the large amount of surgery needed to correct her figure, I recommended staging the surgery to correct a few areas at a time. I suggested starting with a breast lift (mastopexy) and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).

These two procedures were performed simultaneously. The breasts were reshaped using the patient's own tissues, therefore no implants were used. Additionally, the abdomen was tightened internally and the skin was redraped, removing over a foot of excess skin.

The patient was extremely happy wih her results, and noted much improved sensation in her nipples (the nerves were less stretched after the procedure). She is currently scheduled for a buttock lift with excess back skin removal and an arm lift (brachioplasty). She will also have a face lift in the third stage of her correction.

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!
