This patient is a 51 year old female who presented to my practice due to problems with her large breasts. This patient reported significant neck, back, and shoulder pain, bra-strap grooving, and difficulty with exercise or finding clothes that fit properly. This patient was also unhappy with the significant asymmetry of her breasts.

I felt that this patient would be an excellent candidate for breast reduction surgery, and due to her large size, I recommended a carbon-dioxide laser-assisted breast reduction to minimize bleeding during surgery.

I explained to the patient that she would NOT have to have her areolas removed, and that I would be able to perform the surgery leaving the nipples and areolas attached to the underlying tissue (a medio-superiorly based pedicle). I did explain that due to her size, I would need to perform an anchor scar reduction as opposed to a lollipop scar reduction.

Surgery went very well, and I removed approximately 570 grams of tissue from the right side and 390 grams from the left side. The patient noticed a huge improvement in her symptoms and appearance immediately after surgery. She is seen in the photos approximately 6 weeks after surgery, and is very excited and motivated to start a new diet and exercise plan now that her breasts are no longer an inhibiting factor.

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!
