PRLog - Nov. 27, 2012 - PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. -- Dr. Robert Cohen, a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation near Phoenix, was a featured guest on the medical talk show The Wellness Hour with Randy Alvarez. Dr. Cohen's appearance was part of his continued efforts to educate the public regarding safety in plastic surgery, new techniques and other topics pertinent to the cosmetic surgery field.
The Wellness Hour is a highly regarded program that features prominent physicians and surgeons who discuss topics of interest to the public. Dr. Cohen was specifically asked to talk about Mommy Makeover surgery and his experience combining breast augmentation with a tummy tuck for Phoenix (http://www.scottsdalecenterforplasticsurgery.com/
Dr. Cohen says Mommy Makeovers are continuing to gain popularity among his patients.
"I am seeing more women each year who are tired of living with drooping breasts and excess abdominal skin that they can't correct with diet and exercise," Dr. Cohen says. "With Mommy Makeover surgery at my Phoenix area practice, I am able to restore a great deal of self-esteem and confidence for these women.
"During my appearance on The Wellness Hour, I was able to explain not only why women choose to have this surgery but also how to choose a surgeon and how to make sure your procedure will be as safe and effective as possible."
In addition to the 30-minute segment on Mommy Makeover surgery, Dr. Cohen was interviewed for a 30-minute segment on breast augmentation in Phoenix and shorter segments about other procedures he performs in Scottsdale: rhinoplasty (http://www.scottsdalecenterforplasticsurgery.com/
It is Dr. Cohen's hope that, with continuing public education, patient safety will increase.
"I am happy for every opportunity I have to stress the importance of finding a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery for anyone considering cosmetic surgery," he says. "As patients increasingly seek doctors with proper training, concern for safety and attention to detail, we will see an increase in the quality of results and a decrease in complications."
