This patient is a 32 year old male who came to my practice with interest in surgery for gynecomastia. This patient was actively involved in bodybuilding, and had tried steroids in the past. He noted increased development of tissue behind the areolas and wished to have this corrected. He no longer used steroids at the time of his consultation and I advised him to never use them again.

I felt that this patient would benefit from a combination of liposuction of the chest in conjunction with direct tissue removal from behind the areolas. This combination of technique corrects both excess fat and excess glandular tissue (the white, rubbery breast tissue that is a significant component for most patients with gynecomastia).

In surgery, I performed power assisted liposuction as well as direct removal of glandular tissue through small incisions on the undersides of the areolas. I was able to remove a walnut sized lump of glandular tissue from each side.

After surgery, the patient recovered well and was extremely happy with the improvement in his chest contour. He felt more confident about his appearance and assured he that he would not be tempted to try steroids again.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update


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!
