"The implants were placed too high causing my breasts to droop and they appeared un-natural looking." "My shape and size is exactly as we discussed pre-op, my surgery experience was very predictable, and his wonderful office staff, anesthesiologist, and nurses always made me very comfortable...." "Dr. Cohen did an amazing job with my breast augmentation and lift."

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

6 Weeks Post Op Appt Today New pics!

I am getting a full tummy tuck, breast augmentation and breast lift. I am 38 years old and have 3 kids - a 19.5 year old son, an almost 15 year old daughter, and an 8 month old son. I was pregnant with my oldest son at 18 and gained too much weight too quickly and, well, I got stretch marks. Yes, a healthy baby boy too (can't imagine my life without him!), but at 18, stretch marks on my belly...

Great experience

Dr. Cohen is the best! I had breast augmentation with areolar mastoplexy. He is very professional, honest, good bedside manner. He is an exceptional surgeon, and I couldn't be happier with my results.

Could not have a better Surgeon!

Amazing! I had breast augmentation and could not have chosen a better surgeon for this procedure. He truly listens and cares about your goals for surgery! He corrected my asymmetry with minimal scaring and I could not be more satisfied.

27 years old, 5 ft, 105 pds, 32B, 350CC. Best.Surgeon.Ever

I haven't had my surgery yet! BUT I have to say the experience so far has been the best! I did my homework and researched endlessly for weeks. I had a TOP 5 list and Dr. Cohen was the winner. What made me pick him, you ask? 1. He has a plethora of education. His site is beautifully put together and packed informatively with answers to every single question you could have before you even talk...

Could Not Be Happier. Dr. Robert Cohen is Best in His Field - Scottsdale, AZ

I went to Dr. Cohen for a breast reduction (36H to a 36 C) and mini tummy tuck with no muscle repair- my results are even better than what I had hoped for. Dr. Cohen and his staff where so helpful to me in the weeks leading up to the surgery as I had many questions and concerns that I wanted to run past them. They always got back to me promptly and were always kind and understanding. The...

Absolutely Wonderful Surgeon - Scottsdale, AZ

Dr. Cohen is an amazing and professional surgeon. His office and staff are respectful, and from start to finish the whole experience of my plastic surgery (not my first time around, though with another local surgeon) was seamless. I truly enjoyed having had the procedure within his very own office, and never was I in doubt about his prior experience especially in the breast augmentation...

37 Years Old, Wanted to Fix What Diet and Exercise Could Not Fix - Paradise Valley, AZ

I have worked out and eaten healthy for years but after three kids via C-section and my own personal genetic propensity to carry weight in certain areas, I knew that there were certain areas that I would not be able to fix without surgery. I had thought about doing a mommy makeover for years but I had concerns and apprehensions about the scale of the surgery. They say there is a moment when...

Breast Augmentation with Dr. Robert Cohen in Arizona

I had my phone consultation with Dr. Cohen in June, 2016, to discuss my future breast augmentation. He is very thorough and detailed. I appreciate the fact that he told me the risks of the surgery, and the complications that could occur. That helped increase my trust, so now I am certain that I have chosen the right surgeon. So far, the customer service that I have received from his patient coordinator Cassy has been phenomenal. I highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Cohen.
