This patient is a male in his early 40's who presented to my practice with concerns regarding his excess chest tissue (gynecomastia) and his excess fat and loose skin of his abdomen. I encouraged this patient to lose weight, which he did through diet and exercise. (The preoperative photos were taken after this weight loss had occurred.) Once his weight was at a better level, I recommended performing liposuction of the chest and love handles, as well as an abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck) and tightening of the chest skin using a circumareolar (around the areola) incision pattern.

I performed liposuction with power-assisted liposuction and removed almost two liters of fat and fluid. I also took multiple pounds of skin and fat off the abdomen and chest. The patient did very well after surgery, and (once cleared by me) resumed his diet and exercise program.

This patient couldn't be happier, and told me that for the first time in his life, he felt comfortable on the beach without a shirt. His positive attitude and increase in self-esteem was very impressive during his most recent office visit. The surgery certainly made a huge difference, but this patient's commitment to his health and fitness have continued to improve the surgical changes I made in the operating room.

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!
