This patient is a 29 year old male who presented to my practice with interest in correction of gynecomastia (excess chest fullness in a male). This patient exercised and watched his diet, however he had noted gynecomastia in the chest since he was a teenager. This problem was quite embarrassing to this patient, and he was reluctant to go shirtless because of his appearance.

I felt that this patient had true gynecomastia with a combination of excess fat and glandular tissue (breast tissue) behing the areolas. I recommended power assisted liposuction to remove the excess chest fat, in combination with direct removal of the glandular tissue through a small incision under each areola.

During surgery, I was able to remove approximately 125cc of fat from each side of the chest. Additionally, I removed multiple segments of white, rubbery glandular tissue from beneath each areola.

After surgery, the patient healed very nicely, and he was extremely pleased with his new chest contour. He also noted that his areola size shrunk down as a result of the surgery. Overall, this patient's confidence in his physical appearance increased significantly as a result of surgery.

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!
