Mimis N. Cohen MD, FACS
About the Practice
As a University Professor and Department Chief with extensive clinical, research and teaching experience, I am in the forefront of my specialty. I bring to my patients the knowledge and experience of state-of-the-art procedures, as well as the emerging new techniques and innovations in Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery.
I believe that successful results and high level of satisfaction occur with close cooperation between the surgeon and the patient.
I provide all my patients with an extensive preoperative interview and evaluation. I listen carefully to all their requests and expectations. I discuss with them all available surgical procedures and recommend the most appropriate one(s) based on my assessment and experience, the patients appearance, request, needs and realistic expectations.
