5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Hoping for the Best...- Birmingham, AL

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my ps! He has been great through all of this and only gives me words of encouragement.... I have been to consultation with several other "well known" surgeons in my area and even made the mistake of using one of them. After meeting with and using Dr. Cohn I will NEVER use any other ps again! He continuously goes out of his way to make sure I am happy and comfortable with my results. Dr. Cohn treats each person as an individual, not a cookie cutter image. He listens to each individual goal and then goes above and beyond to help achieve perfection! The office staff offers a very warm and welcome experience and his surgical team is AMAZING! Not only are they great as a business, but they are each great (and actually very normal ) people. They truly care about each of their patients and made me feel like part of the family!

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Looking and Feeling Great - Birmingham, AL

Outstanding doctor on all aspects. Technically excellent and wonderful facility. I was thrilled to not have to deal with a hospital. Both the nurse and the doctor called me the day after my surgery to check on me. I am fortunate to call him my doctor and plan on using him for additional surgery in the future.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Totally Perfect Experience - Birmingham, AL

friend who had surgery with him. Really nervous consumer of plastic surgery. Wanted non-surgical looking result. I could not be happier with my decision: the result, the doctor, and the staff all exceeded my expectations. I was able to take my time and felt very supported during the entire process.

Great Experience and Result! - Birmingham, AL

I am almost 40 years old and have given birth to 3 children. I am 7 1/2 months out from what I consider a "mommy makeover". I had a breast lift with implants and a mini tummy tuck. It is something I have wanted to do for a very long time. I am so happy with my results!!! Dr. Cohn immediately put me at ease in the consultation and made sure I understood exactly what the procedures were and...

TRAM Flap, Breast Reconstruction - Birmingham, AL

My experience with Dr. Cohn has been wonderful in every way possible. He has a way of making you feel at ease from the minute you walk into his office. He and his staff are professional, courteous and friendly. Anytime I had a question or concern Dr. Cohn, Kim or the office staff was quick to help. I could not be happier with my experience!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Much Needed Augmentation After Nursing Complications. - Birmingham, AL

Dr. Cohn was very informative at my first consultation. He went over (in detail) the procedure, sizing suggestions, recovery, healing time, etc. to make me feel comfortable. The morning of my surgery, he came in, made markings, and answered all of my questions. Every post-op visit since then, he's been thorough, and genuinely seemed concerned about my happiness with the results. I was very pleased with the experience in its entirety and love my breasts!! I would highly recommend Dr. Cohn and his staff to anyone wanting to undergo a breast augmentation.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Results Were Worth It! - Birmingham, AL

Dr. Cohn was one of several plastic surgeons from whom I sought a consultation. In contrast to other Dr. Cohn was obviously very passionate about his chosen profession. He spent as much time with me as I needed, and answered all of my questions. I am an RN, and thoroughly research before choosing any healthcare provider. It was a great experience to sit with a plastic surgeon who really listened to my concerns, and took whatever time needed to provide me with all of the information I needed to make my decision. Dr. Cohn was available to me preoperatively, and post-operatively when needed. The line of communication was excellent, both with Dr. Cohn and his staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Cohn. My only complaint is actually also a positive point about him, and that is the wait time to see him. During initial consultation appointment I waited over 45 minutes past my appointment time to see him. However, when I did see him I was not rushed at all, and he took all of the time needed to do my consultation. I quickly realized that my initial consultation was late because he was giving another patient the time that patient needed. So, the wait time didn't bother me at all. Again, I highly recommend Dr. Cohn.

Looking for Natural Curves? Go Visit Dr. Cohn!! Birmingham, AL

I have always wanted to feel more "like a woman". I have a tall, fit build and wanted to fill out a swim suit without using padding. I pursued many different consultations in the Birmingham area and felt the most confident with Dr. Cohn and his entire team. The before and after photos were an added bonus. He answered my questions effectively, minimized my concerns, and truly put me at ease....

Dr Cohn is wonderful, I can not say enough about him and his staff. He will take the time you need to explain all your options. He will tell you what he thinks will work for you. His staff is awesome. They are always willing to help you any way they can. His work is so good. He gave my my self confidence back I had lost. What a miracle he truly is!!!!
