This patient is a 36 year old male who presented to my practice with concerns regarding his chest. He felt that he had excess fullness in his chest as well as "puffiness" of the areolas which caused him to be self-conscious about his appearance.

I felt that this patient had gynecomastia (excess tissue fullness in a male chest), and recommended liposuction as well as possible direct tissue removal. I explained that this would help his chest contour dramatically.

With regards to the "puffiness" of the areolas, this is one of the hardest things to reliably correct. Even when all excess fat and breast tissue is removed, the areolas may sometimes maintain a modest amount of fullness because the skin in this area is so thin. I explained that there would probably be a significant improvement, but probably not complete flatness of the areolas.

In the operating room, I performed power-assisted liposuction of the chest. After removing approximately 165cc of fat per side, I examined the chest and could not feel any dense glandular (breast) tissue. As a result, no direct tissue excision was performed.

After surgery, the patient recovered well and was very happy and much more confident about the appearance 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!
