This patient is a 33 year old male who presented to my practice with interest in gynecomastia surgery. This patient had a fairly severe excess of tissue in the chest area which caused him embarrassment and made it difficult to wear certain types of shirts. He wished to have a more masculine chest appearance.

On examination, I felt that this patient would need both liposuction of the chest and direct glandular tissue removal through the areolas. Additionally, due to significant skin excess, I felt that he would need skin removal to tighten the chest. To minimize scarring, I recommended tightening around the areolas (circumareolar mastopexy).

In surgery, I used power-assisted liposuction to remove approximately 500cc from each chest. Additionally, I removed approximately 25 grams of glandular tissue from each side. Finally, I removed a significant amount of excess skin and tightened the skin around the areolas.

After surgery, this patient healed very well, and he had a significant boost in his self confidence. He was very pleased with the new, masculine contour of his chest.

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!
