This is a 17 year old female who came with her mother to my practice regarding breast reduction surgery. This patient reported constant problems with back, neck and shoulder pain, rashes, bra strap grooving, difficulty finding clothes that fit, and problems with unwanted attention to her chest. She and her mother both felt that her life would be significantly improved with a breast reduction. She was a 36 DD and wished to be a C cup in size.

I felt that this patient would be an excellent candidate for a breast reduction. Given her good skin quality and breast measurements, I recommended a vertical (also known as a LeJour or lollipop pattern) breast reduction in order to get the best, most natural shape and to avoid a scar under the breast.

With consent from both the patient and her mother, I performed a vertical breast reduction without complications. The patient immediately noticed a dramatic improvement in her physical symptoms and was thrilled with her physical appearance. Two months after surgery (when the postop photos were taken) the patient had complete resolution of her back, neck and shoulder pain, rashes, and bra strap grooving. He posture was much better, and seemed to be a much happier person in general. As her mother told my office manager, her daughter's surgery was "the best investment she ever made".

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!
