This patient is a 20 year old female who flew in from New Mexico with interest in breast reduction surgery. This patient was suffering from the usual complex of symptoms including back, neck, and shoulder pain, bra strap grooving, and difficulty with exercise due to her heavy breasts. She wished to have a reduction, but also wanted to maintain a round, natural breast appearance.

For this patient, I recommended a vertical (lollipop scar) breast reduction which would allow me to improve her symptoms and reduce her breast size while maintaining a beautiful shape and avoiding a scar under the breasts. Please note that the nipples / areolas are shifted into a higher position, I do NOT detach them from the breasts to perform any type of breast lift or breast reduction surgery.

During surgery I removed 165 grams on the right side and 215 grams on the left due to a preoperative asymmetry. I also performed a significant tightening of the breasts and raised them into a higher position.

After the surgery, the patient noticed an immediate resolution of her back and neck pain. She felt much more comfortable, and was extremely happy with the smaller and perkier appearance of her breasts.

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!
