Dr. Robert Cohen’s well-planned path to becoming a respected Beverly Hills/ West Hollywood plastic surgeon has required a tremendous amount of training, work, and continued refinement, but this effort has culminated in an extremely successful and rewarding career in aesthetic plastic surgery. As a board-certified plastic surgeon who draws patients from Los Angeles and beyond, Dr. Cohen considers the journey an ongoing one. He continues to pursue excellence in every aspect of plastic surgery, from patient care to industry leadership and technical innovation.

Dr. Cohen knew at an early age that he wanted to be a plastic surgeon. “I was around 16; I had seen plastic surgeons performing their work – in person and on TV – and I knew that it just fit with my personality and skill set. I was always artistically inclined and good with my hands, and I really loved the way surgery could instantly help people. Once I had a chance to spend time in the OR and really see what surgery was about, all of my plans from that point on were designed to achieve my goal of becoming a plastic surgeon.”

After he graduated cum laude from the rigorous Phoenix Country Day School, Dr. Cohen selected prestigious Emory University in Atlanta for his pre-med studies. There, he double-majored in biology and philosophy and graduated in the top 12% of his class.

He was accepted into several of the nation’s top medical schools, and ultimately selected Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans for its intense hands-on training. In medical school, he earned top honors in surgery and published numerous research papers. One of these appeared in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Cohen was accepted into the exclusive Ivy League plastic and reconstructive surgery program at Dartmouth (Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center). There he honed his skills under the instruction of some of the world’s leading plastic surgeons and educators. During his residency, Dr. Cohen:

Published a textbook chapter
Served as chief resident
Traveled to North Vietnam as part of a 3-week medical mission to repair children’s cleft lip and palate deformities

While many plastic surgeons opt to start their careers after residency training, Dr. Cohen chose to pursue additional, advanced training in aesthetic surgery. He was selected over some of the world’s most promising young plastic surgeons for a highly coveted aesthetic surgery and laser surgery fellowship with world-renowned Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. W. Grant Stevens. Additionally, he was the first-ever to be offered this fellowship for a full year. Under Dr. Stevens’ guidance, Dr. Cohen further refined his skills in all facets of cosmetic and laser surgery.

In 2005, Dr. Cohen returned home to Scottsdale to establish what is now a thriving private practice. He earned board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 2006 and continues to be an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
