New Jersey Plastic Surgeon – Dr. Zubowski
Paramus Location in Bergen County, NJ

Meet Dr. Robert Zubowski, M.D.

Despite the decade of experience he’s garnered as a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Zubowski still gets excited about the most basic of cosmetic surgery’s principles -- it can and will positively impact people’s lives. He’s become well-known for perfecting a facial cosmetic surgery technique that not only rejuvenates his patients’ natural looks, but also visually turns back the clock as much as ten to twelve years. In addition, Dr. Zubowski is also recognized as a top breast augmentation, reduction, and lift surgeon.

Patient Philosophy

Dr. Zubowski believes that one-on-one consultations set the stage for successful surgical outcomes. Accordingly, Dr. Zubowski invests a great deal of his time and energy into helping his patients identify their surgical goals so that they both share the same expectations. Dr. Zubowski also values full disclosure and patient education; consultations at his office include candid and frank discussions of possible risks and complications.

Education and Training

To further validate the surgical skills and years of experience he gained while completing a general surgery residency at New York Medical College and an additional residency at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Dr. Zubowski has been board-certified in both plastic and general surgery. He remains fiercely loyal and grateful to both of the institutions that trained and propelled him to his career. He has served as an associate professor of Plastic Surgery at New York Medical College and as the plastic surgery specialty director of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation Alumni Association, where he is also an adjunct staff member. Dr. Zubowski is a former associate director of plastic surgery at Ridgewood’s The Valley Hospital and holds a Certificate of Advanced Education in Cosmetic Surgery from the American Board of Plastic Surgery. In spite of his advanced training, skill, and experience, Dr. Zubowski continues to hone his skills and improve his surgical knowledge by frequently attending plastic and reconstructive surgery forums both stateside and abroad.

Community Contributions

After several years of performing breast reconstruction surgery for cancer survivors, Dr. Zubowski began to recognize a need for support among these courageous women, so he co-founded the New Jersey chapter of Image Reborn, a non-profit support group for breast reconstruction patients.
