“While I never really struggled with weight problems when I was younger, I gained a great deal of weight with both of my pregnancies (over 70 lbs, yikes!), and boasted a whopping 225 pounds on a 5 foot 6 1/2 inch frame with my second child. I was fortunate enough to lose all but 10-15 pounds within the first year after delivery. But even as I continued to lose those last stubborn few pounds, my stomach didn’t come close to flattening out one bit. I did personal training, Pilates, boot-camp, spinning, step, hot yoga, and even tried Jenny Craig, and people would still ask me if I was pregnant again. It was so frustrating. In addition, my small, but shapely breasts had ballooned from barely a B to a DD during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and while I wouldn’t trade that experience for anything, the aftermath was less than desirable. I lost most of the elasticity in my breast tissue, and had rather pronounced asymmetry. Everyone said I looked “fine,” and many women argued that these changes were the “badge of motherhood.” I disagreed. While I was well into my thirties, I had no desire to “retire” my bikini, and sport the one pieces I had so often seen my mother wear to conceal her “badges of motherhood.” In my head, I’m still in my twenties.
Anyway, I decided that cosmetic surgery was the only way I was going to get the results I wanted, so I shopped around. Believe it or not, I was 99% certain I was going to go to another plastic surgeon, and decided, on the advice of a neighbor, to have a consultation with Dr. Michael Cohen. Boy, am I sure glad I did! This kind of surgery is rather involved, and Dr. Cohen’s bedside manner immediately put me at ease. I really wanted natural looking results, and while I had a “size” in mind, I basically let him have carte blanche. I am so thrilled with my results, and not only would I do it again in a heartbeat, I would highly recommend the Center to any and all of my friends considering cosmetic surgery. The staff was courteous, friendly, and supportive, and my overall experience was phenomenal. So, I offer a heartfelt “thank you” for allowing me to look like I feel!”

“Annette, I love my new makeup and sunglasses! Thank you for making me look and feel pretty and for putting a much needed smile on my face.” This patient is wearing Babor Age ID Mattifying makeup and Prada sunglasses.
Danna Thomas, Miss Baltimore 2013 and Miss Maryland 2013 Finalist
“The staff and doctors treated me like such a queen…before they even knew that in reality I was in fact a beauty “queen”! Their commitment to helping each individual look and feel their best is unparalleled. To say that I looked forward to my appointments after a long day of teaching and grad school would be the understatement of the century. I simply could not get to this oasis fast enough! Belcara Health helped me to love the skin I’m in, and pampered me like every woman truly deserves.”
Neograft Hair Restoration
“Don’t just sit around and grow old gracefully, do something about your hair loss. It only took a couple of hours and new hair as started to re-grow within weeks. It’s decision that changed my life and it will change yours too.”
Tummy Tuck, Liposuction
“Wanted to thank you for seeing me through the past four months. I love love love the results of my tummy tuck and lipo. Seeing the before pics is quite astounding. All that flesh; all that flab; all those years. I am just thrilled beyond words to be free of it. The extra sagging; drooping; bulging skin caused me to feel very self-conscious regardless of what I was wearing. Even when I felt good about the rest of my appearance, i.e., hair and make-up; the contour and heaviness of my tummy area always distracted from any positivity. Thank you for sculpting, tucking and trimming my new figure!”
“As a 28 year old mother of three, I’ve spent the last six years raising my children, working on my career and just living day to day. I worked hard to lose the baby weight, but, after breastfeeding three children, my chest seemed to be a lost cause. After months of research, I decided to go to Dr. Cohen to have a breast augmentation. My consultations and surgery were so perfect. Dr. Cohen and his staff made me feel so comfortable with every aspect of the procedure. Today, about two and half months after surgery, I have never been more happy. It is amazing how I have changed inside and out. When I look in the mirror, I am content with my appearance for the first time in my life. The surgery changed everything in my life from my self-confidence to my marriage, from the way I approach every-day situations to the way I carry myself. A simple Thank You could never be enough!”
Laura G., 28
“In December, I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Cohen and ever since my surgery, my life has changed dramatically! As a 19 year old, friends and family always thought I had to be comfortable with my body due to the youth of it, but I was far from it. I always had to shop around my boobs, and buying only shirts that made me look fuller than I was. Since my surgery, I am probably the most comfortable person, I’m confident, and I’m how a teenager should feel about their body. Words can’t even express how happy I am now! Dr. Cohen and staff were so thoughtful and understanding; and helped make my process and decision making as simple as possible. You guys made me realize I’m not the only person who has felt this way about their body, and I thank you for that. I have recommended everyone to you, and have actually had friends get surgeries done with you guys. Thank you again!”

Male Body Contouring
“Surgery isn’t just for the ladies! I lost 100 pounds, got back into shape and wanted give my wife the pleasure of being married to a 50 year old man with a 25 year old butt! What a Christmas it was for her (and me too). Dr Cohen is a fantastic, skilled surgeon. Indeed he is a true artist. I had a full body lift and now have a flat stomach for the first time in my life. I’m actually working on the six pack after getting rid of the keg.”

“I am in my late 20’s and my childhood days were rough! When the age began girls developing, I had prayed so hard to have my chest grow out like the other girls. In middle school, I was teased being called a flat chest, tire chest, and boy chest. I even had a training bra posted on my gym locker with a nasty note about other girls making fun of my chest when I changed for gym. I was an “A” cup and I really did not have to wear a bra and when I got to high school my chest still didn’t grow at all. I went to a consultation appointment with Dr. Michael Cohen and I knew he would make me look beautiful. I had Dr. Cohen perform surgery in February of 2009 and that was the day he changed my life and made me into this beautiful woman with this amazing chest. I would recommend anyone to this practice because not only was he the best doctor, but his staff was amazing and I really felt comfortable and had a a lot of trust in Dr. Cohen! Thank you for this you did an amazing job!”

Breast Augmentation, Tummy Tuck
“It has been a year since my surgery, I had a breast augmentation and a tummy tuck, Dr. Michael Cohen is a perfectionist! I am so happy with the way I look; if any one was thinking about having anything done, don’t go to just anyone – go to this office. Everyone there is very nice and caring. I will try and post some before and after photos for everyone to see!”
Kimberly F. 30
Liposuction, Tummy Tuck
“I know you hear this all the time from your other clients as you are top in your field, but, I love the transformation already. It’s funny to put my hands on my waist and to feel my hips and waist as an hour glass. And let’s not forget the boobs in which I look like I have implants and I don’t! I live on the water and do a lot of boating so can you imagine what this spring and summer will be like when I will parade around in a bikini for the first time in 22 years- thanks for your incredible skill and care!

My experience with the Cosmetic Surgery Center has been nothing but positive. From my wonderful surgeon, Dr. Cohen who is truly a genuine and kind human being in addition to being skilled, knowledgeable and talented – to Jessica, who calls to remind me of my appointments and greets me with her smile on each visit – to Kara, my biggest fan, who has personally got involved with assisting me in my desire to revive my facial texture and overall look – to Melissa who created a proper skin care schedule and researched my skin type to make sure the products recommended work for me. Kudos to you all!! Truly….I am sincere with my thoughts about you all. Cosmetic Surgery options available today place us all in a position to fantasize. Dr. Cohen and his staff provide the skill, knowledge, patience and their strong desire to help you make critical and realistic decisions. I am very grateful that my research lead me to your door.

Your fervent passion in your chosen specialty is boundless, and clearly sets you apart from the rest. I am greatly enjoying the beautiful results from our surgical date last August, and feel proud and privileged to be in your care.”
Rhinoplasty, Breast Augmentation, Liposuction
“When I met you at, Stanford Medical Center in California, I knew immediately that you were both an artist and a compassionate doctor. I was delighted with the results of my rhinoplasty back then, and knew that if ever I needed/wanted more cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, you would be the one to do it. That’s why I followed you clear across the country, to Maryland, to have my other procedures done. You can imagine how many plastic surgery practices are located on the west coast. But I wanted natural, beautiful results, from someone I trusted, so I chose you. Thanks again for being so accommodating and so talented.”
“I would like you to know how impressed I was today with you, everyone’s keen professionalism, and the complete office environment. The entire experience was very reassuring, and more than I expected. “
“Thank you so much for my “new enhancement.” I’m absolutely thrilled. Choosing a surgeon was a major decision. I’m glad I chose you.”

Your professionalism and fine skills are really outstanding and I just wanted to thank you for doing such a good job.”
Patient’s (29) Brother
“I’d like to let you know how happy I am with the results of the blepharoplasty you performed on me a few months ago. My eyes look great and others have made positive comments as well. I have recommended your work to many prospective patients.”
“I want to thank you, Dr. Cohen. You are an artist! When you are diagnosed with cancer, your defenses go. It’s so important to have a sensitive and conscientious doctor. You were perfect!”
“Thank you for your patience and delicate care. I am extremely grateful and very glad that you are my doctor.”
“Thank you so much for your dedicated, professional care and support during my recent surgeries to restore my body after a mastectomy. The cosmetic result is outstanding! Your surgical skills have brought me a long way from that numbing day when I first heard “I am sorry, but you have cancer.” I am grateful that there are professionals and administrative staff like those in your office who are selfless and generous in providing patient care.”
“First of all, I would like you to know that you have the most wonderful staff. I would also like to thank you for caring so much about your patients even while you’re on vacation. Thanks again for the personal touch you give your patients.”
“Please accept my appreciation and thanks for your sincere care and very kind attention. Please convey my thanks to your office staff for their patience and efficiency.”
