You are such a wonderful doctor! I cannot thank you enough for my new boobs! My breast reduction is just fabulous. I can see my feet, I can run with my grandkids, I can go braless, I have been wearing a bra since I was 11 years old and now I am 53. That is 42 years, my back thanks you, and my shoulders really thank you for the relief. I would feel funny at parties due to everyone looking at my breast and not my face. When men talked to me it was like I had a microphone in my bra and they would speak into my breast. I would always say there is no microphone down there. Talk to me and not my breast, now that’s in the past. I can laugh about it now.
I can do a breast exam now; I don’t have to lift my breast to wash under them anymore no more funky smell or rashes. You have really changed my life for the better. You are such a warm, kind doctor that made me and my husband feel very comfortable about my surgery. You took time with me and answered all my questions and concerns, anytime something did not feel right I would call your office and Shelly or Amy would get a hold of you and my fears were put to rest. I just love you all! After my surgery you still took care of my emotional well-being, the ups and downs of my emotional rollercoaster after my surgery I did know what to expect due to the paperwork that was given to me before the surgery. All the information from the procedure to the cost to my all around wellbeing was covered. I am just so grateful to you and Shelly and my girl Amy, you guys rock!!!!!!!
With such love warmth and gratitude and with all my heart, thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!

I don’t think I have thanked you enough for the wonderful job you did on my surgery. I love the results and really felt that you and your staff took such good care of me. The healing has been quick and I feel normal again (and have felt normal for weeks now).
Thanks so much again

As a woman with a family and a demanding schedule, I had a tendency to forget myself. Others needs came before mine.
I had lost 40 lbs for my son’s wedding, yet my large cup size did not decrease. My breast remained low and size DDD, as I tried on gowns. My body looked disappointing and my age showed. As I looked at photos on Facebook of classmates, I could see it was a trend with the over 50 crowd.
Surgery by Dr. Cohen has changed me. I feel better and younger. I can see a difference in how others approach me. My back pain, especially my right shoulder pain is alleviated.
In retrospect, I wish I had been brave sooner. It is a hard thing to walk through this door for the first time.

I’m very happy to share my experience with you. I was 30 when I had my 2nd child and it really took a toll on my breasts. I was a very saggy 34B and unhappy. My husband and I met with Dr. Cohen to discuss a breast enlargement, a fabulous 40th birthday gift from my husband. Dr. Cohen was absolutely Fabulous! He sat with me and on several occasions, discussing my options. We decided to go with Saline and to do (“D’s”)…or large C’s. We also chose to do my incision under my boobs because the scar wouldn’t really show. I was excited to get to take pictures ahead of time to see what my results might look like
Surgery day was a piece of cake, the staff and Dr. Cohen were very positive and calming, despite my nerves. My recovery went well and it was exciting to see the swelling go down and my new breasts to settle. I couldn’t be happier with my results. My breasts look AMAZING!
It’s wonderful to get some confidence back in my appearance.
Thank you so very much to Dr. Cohen, Shelley, Amy and the rest of the staff for taking such good care of me!!!

Dr. Cohen and his staff are talented as well as “with you” every step of the way. I had a breast lift and tummy tuck at the same time. The only regret I have is not doing this sooner.
Who knew I would be in a bikini a month post-op? A double benefit is feeling healthy again. I have recommended all of my friends to Dr. Cohen. You will not be disappointed.

Dear Dr. Cohen,
I am writing to thank you from the bottom of my heart, for the amazing results and bedside manner you offered my mom, during her breast reconstruction process.
As you know, my mom has battled cancer twice, the second bout with Breast Cancer, which resulted in chemotherapy and a double mastectomy. She battled like a warrior, through it all, with strength and courage. When it came time to get her breast reconstruction done, the first time, by another surgeon, she was excited and grateful to be almost done with the nightmare she had undergone. Unfortunately, her nightmare had actually just begun. The other surgeon did a deplorable job and then refused to fix her work, or accept responsibility for the appalling outcome. After many months of believing she would look disfigured for the rest of her life, my mom was thankfully referred to you.
On our first visit, you were a true gentleman. You were reassuring, knowledgeable and informative. We felt a glimmer of hope again, for the first time in a long time. As the consultation process progressed, you remained kind and honest and it was clear to both my mom and I hat you had given much contemplation to how you would go about correcting the wrong that had been done before you.
The day of the surgery, I sat in the hospital waiting room, on pins and needles, but you made surgery your nurse called me, from the operating room, to reassure me that all was going according to plan and put my mind at ease. Afterward, you came out, once again with your bright smile beaming, to say that the result was one your were very proud of.
When I saw the results for myself, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. My mom’s horror was finally over. Thank you, Dr. Cohen. You are an amazing surgeon, and incredibly empathetic human being and a true class act. It has been my pleasure and honor to have met you and to have had my mom’s care in your capable hands.
With sincere gratitude,
View the patient letter

Not only is Dr. Cohen a highly skilled surgeon, he is one the most caring and compassionate doctors I have ever met. I went to Dr. Cohen after enduring a breast reconstruction by another surgeon who left my totally disfigured. Surprisingly enough, the first surgeon was a female and I had mistakenly thought that a female doctor would give me the compassion and care that I needed following my bilateral mastectomy. I couldn’t have been more wrong and I paid the price for that assumption with a disfigurement that was so profound that I couldn’t bear to look at myself in the mirror. I was reluctant to go though another surgery and recovery, but decided to meet with Dr. Cohen to see if he felt there was something he could do to correct the disfigurement and make me look and feel normal.
Dr. Cohen was an absolute Godsend! He was kind and gracious, and he treated me like a member of his own family. He took the time to explain every detail of what he would do to improve the first result, answered all of my questions and I could tell that he really cared about me as a person and wanted to achieve the best result possible for me.
My surgery took place on Friday, 3/25/11, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Dr. Cohen’s skill and talent as a plastic surgeon is obvious when you look at my before and after pictures. After a very long journey, I finally feel “whole.” For those of us who have fought breast cancer and made it through, it is comforting to finally feel a sense of normalcy once again.
Dr. Cohen’s wonderful staff, Shelly and Shanna, are also to be commended for their unfailing kindess and willingness to help me through every step of the process. I appreciate the excellent care I received from of you and thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
