Cosmetic Surgery Center of Maryland becomes BELECARA, adding dermatology and ophthalmology to its plastic surgery, cosmetic podiatry and skin care services.

BALTIMORE, June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Growing older without looking older has just gotten easier for Baltimore-area residents. With the grand opening of BELECARA, Dr. Michael Cohen and his colleagues are stepping up their services, helping patients fight the aging process from head to toe with cosmetic surgery and innovative wellness care in one location.

The new multi-specialty practice, which opened its doors to patients on June 3, aims to redefine the concept of aesthetic medical care. Dr. Cohen, who founded Cosmetic Surgery Center of Maryland and continues to serve as medical director of BELECARA explains:

"By expanding our existing cosmetic surgery and skin rejuvenation services to include dermatology and ophthalmology, we can take an integrative approach to patient care, offering comprehensive, effective, and highly individualized treatments to address unwanted effects of aging throughout the face and body."

BELECARA offers surgical and office-based procedures for both men and women in the following specialties:

  • Cosmetic Surgery: Breast enhancement, body contouring, facial rejuvenation surgery, rhinoplasty, genital aesthetics
  • Cosmetic Podiatry: Aesthetic toe & foot surgery, skin & laser treatments for feet
  • Dermatology: Skin cancer screening & treatment, body mapping, medical skin care
  • Ophthalmology: LASIK & cataract surgery, dry eye treatment, comprehensive eye care
  • Hair Restoration: Neograft permanent hair transplantation procedures
  • Non-Surgical Aesthetics: Botox & filler injections, laser treatments, peels & facials, CoolSculpting, Dual-Sculpting

Behind the Name BELECARA: Beauty + Care
Dr. Cohen says their new name BELECARA, which blends words meaning "beauty" and "care," more accurately portrays the practice's central focus on improving each patient's overall quality of life as well as enhancing aspects of one's appearance.

"Our highest priority as physicians is the health and well-being of our patients, and we have always viewed aesthetic care as an extension of patient wellness," says Dr. Cohen. "The name BELECARA reflects our belief that caring for one's appearance and caring for one's health are ultimately inseparable."

A Staff of 7 Surgeons, Nationally Recognized in their Specialties
Dr. Cohen notes that expanding the scope of the practice allows for more individualized patient care. "With seven different specialists under one roof, patients can choose the physician whose area of expertise best answers a patient's individual needs."

BELECARA's team of surgeons includes the following:

  • Michael D. Cohen, MD, FACS, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
  • Larry L. Lickstein, MD, FACS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
  • Karen E. Boyle, MD, FACS, Board Certified Urologist, Genital Aesthetics Surgeon
  • Richard Adler, MD, FACS, Board Certified Ophthalmologist
  • Ciro Martins, MD, Board Certified Dermatologist
  • Patrick J. Byrne, MD, FACS, Board Certified Otolaryngologist
  • Kelly L. Geoghan, DPM, Board Certified Podiatrist

BELECARA's skin and laser center, staffed by a team of registered nurses and licensed medical aestheticians, offers patients a variety of non-surgical skin and body treatments.

New Baltimore Location & Larger Facility
To accommodate the growing practice, BELECARA has relocated from Towson to a larger facility in Baltimore. "Having more space allows us to offer additional services while ensuring the comfortable and pleasant experience our patients have come to expect from us," states Dr. Cohen. He mentions more ample parking and multiple private waiting areas among the improvements over their previous office setting.
