This patient, age 33, presented to my office seeking relief from her overly large, drooping breasts that were causing neck, shoulder, and back pain as well as rashes and bra strap grooving. She was also unhappy with how her breast shape affected her overall body image. Additionally, this patient wanted to get rid of areas of excess fat along the bra line.

I recommended breast reduction surgery, which would dramatically affect her appearance and her physical comfort. I also recommended liposuction and a full tummy tuck. Because the patient was considering having more children, it was best to postpone the tummy tuck.

In surgery, I performed breast reduction using the anchor technique, leaving the nipple connected to the underlying breast tissue. I also performed liposuction along the bra line to narrow and round out her breasts. In addition, I performed liposuction on the flanks, abdomen, and thighs to help recontour these areas.

I use liposuction at my Santa Monica practice to enhance the results of other procedures and as a standalone procedure for removing isolated areas of unwanted fat.

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!
