This patient is a female in her 30's who presented to my practice with interest in revision breast surgery. This patient had undergone a previous breast augmentation with tightening around the areola by another surgeon where saline implants had been placed her chest muscles. The patient was unhappy with her firm, unnatural breast appearance and wished to have revision surgery. The patient had also undergone a prior abdominoplasty by another surgeon as well and had some residual laxity in the lower abdomen that she was unhappy with.

For this patient, I recommended multiple maneuvers to improve her breast appearance. First, I recommended changing her implants from saline to silicone cohesive gel for a softer, more natural look and feel. Secondly, I recommended using Strattice (an acellular dermal matrix) to act as an internal bra and minimize the risk of visibility of the implant and capsular contracture. (Please see the link on my website for more information on Strattice). Next, I recommended a vertical (lollipop scar) breast lift to reshape the breasts and improve the nipple positions. Finally, I felt that a small revision mini abdominoplasty would give the patient a significant improvement of the laxity in her lower abdomen.

During surgery I placed Mentor 350cc moderate plus cohesive silicone gel implants and performed all of the above-mentioned maneuvers including the placement of Strattice. The patient recovered very well after surgery and was extremely happy with her much softer, more natural and aesthetically pleasing breasts and the improvement of her lower abdomen.

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!
