This is a 51 year old female who presented to my medical office with complaints of excessively large and asymmetric breasts. She had many physical symptoms from her breasts including shoulder, neck and back pain, shoulder grooving from her bra straps, and occasional rashes under the breasts. Additionally, it was difficult for this patient to find clothes that fit due to both the size of her breasts, and the significant difference in volume between the left and right breasts.

For this patient, I recommended a breast reduction to accomplish a few things. First of all, a reduction would reduce the weight of her breasts, thus alleviating her physical symptoms. Secondly, a reduction would lift her breasts into a better position on the chest, making them "perkier". Finally, I would be able to correct her asymmetry by removing more tissue from the larger left breast. This patient specifically asked that I perform only a modest reduction so that she would still be proportionate in size (compared to her lower body).

I suggested a "vertical" breast reduction (also known as a "lollipop scar" or LeJour reduction) to minimize scarring by avoiding a scar under the breast. I use many different techniques for breast reduction, and each technique is fitted specifically to each patient in order to get the best results.

The patient did extremely well after surgery and had an instantaneous improvement in her symptoms. I was able to achieve excellent symmetry, and the patient now feels much more comfortable, both physically and with regards to her appearance.

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!
