Meet Dr. Andrew T. Cohen
Dr. Andrew Cohen is a native of Southern California and has an office and an accredited, state-of-the-art operating room in the heart of Encino, California. Since moving his practice from Beverly Hills, Dr. Cohen is pleased to offer comprehensive plastic surgery care at his new Encino office which is conveniently located off the 101 freeway and Balboa Boulevard. Dr. Cohen is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a past, two-time Clinical Chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Cedars Sinai Medical Center. He completed both his general surgery training and plastic surgery residency at Loma Linda University.
Dr. Cohen comes from a long line of family surgeons. His father, a prominent general surgeon in Huntington Beach, California, instilled a strong work ethic and love of surgery to all four of the Cohen sons. The oldest, Dr. Mitchell Cohen, M.D. is an orthopedic spine surgeon in Newport Beach, California. Dr. Stephen Cohen is a colorectal surgeon in West Virginia, and Dr. Jeffrey Cohen is a colorectal surgeon in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Cohen’s mother is a retired school teacher.
Ten years ago,my primary care physician, a professor at UCLA, referred me to Dr. Andrew T. Cohen. This initial referral let me know that Dr. Cohen’s abilities were highly regarded and that he was respected by people who knew and trained physicians. Recently, Dr. Cohen performed a second and different major procedure for me . Again, I found that my confidence was not misplaced. Dr. Cohen and Shelley are caring, kind and straightforward. Dr. Cohen personally attended to each detail of my treatment and recovery. I have had no complications and I am extremely pleased with my results.

At the time of your initial office visit, your concerns about your appearance will be discussed in detail. Dr. Cohen will use his expertise to advise you whether plastic surgery is a good choice for you. You will be photographed using digital technology, and your pictures will be reviewed with Dr. Cohen to try and see if he can meet your expectations.
In addition to discussing the surgery in descriptive terms, now there can be an agreement in visual terms. Instead of only hearing about the surgery, now you can see the surgical plan, and you can confirm that you like what you see.
Dr. Cohen and his professional staff will guide you through the decision making process in a kind and professional manner. They are experienced in making all of the necessary arrangements for aftercare, transportation and preoperative laboratory tests. You will be given a list of the appropriate medications as well as a list of vitamins and homeopathic preparations to take to minimize your recovery and maximize your result. A second appointment will be made to give you time to consider your choices and to compile a list of questions which may come to mind.
Why Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?
When considering a plastic surgery procedure, you should always seek a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). By doing so, you can trust you are being cared for by a highly qualified physician who upholds the strictest safety standards. Although cosmetic procedures can be performed by a wide range of professionals, only ABPS-certified physicians have demonstrated the skill and experience necessary to provide excellent care in plastic surgery. They have undergone at least six years of specialty training, have passed a rigorous exam process, and continuously meet high safety and care standards. Dr. Cohen has held board certification through the ABPS since 2002.
