This patient, a 33-year-old man, came to my medical practice to learn about chest and torso contouring because he was unhappy with the fullness of his chest and the excess fat on his abdomen and flanks (love handles). He wanted to have a more masculine appearance overall. I recommended power-assisted liposuction of the chest, abdomen, and flanks; and explained that I might also need to perform direct glandular tissue removal from his chest.

In surgery, I used power-assisted liposuction to remove fat from the patient's chest, flanks, and abdomen. On examination in the operating room, I felt that no direct glandular tissue removal was necessary, as is the case with many gynecomastia patients. I was able to achieve excellent flatness with liposuction alone.

After surgery the patient was extremely happy with his new, more masculine appearance and had the confidence to wear regular t-shirts without being self-conscious about his chest and torso.

Liposuction at my Santa Monica practice can provide excellent improvements as an individual procedure or in combination with other procedures such as abdominoplasty.

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!
