About Robert Zubowski, MD

Dr. Zubowski is dedicated to offering patients the latest innovations in nonsurgical and surgical procedures, as well as providing the facts about what is safe and realistic. Despite the two decades 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.

Professional Background

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. Additionally, he works pro bono for Interplast, with whom he travels to Third World countries and performs reconstructive surgeries for children born with birth defects. He also invests in his own community, formerly serving as president of his town’s Board of Health and as a member of its recreation commission.

Dr. Zubowski has become increasingly recognizable, as he regularly speaks on all aspects of cosmetic surgery to various public and professional groups. Whenever the media is in need of expert information or a valuable opinion on new cosmetic surgery techniques, Dr. Zubowski is among the select group of professionals who field the calls. He has also notably appeared as Barbara Walters’ guest on “The View,” FOX News, and the New Jersey News Network. For the year 2013, Dr. Robert Zubowski was honored with the Patient’s Choice Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award.

Major Credit Cards
Patient Financing Plans
Financing Available
We believe that everyone deserves to look and feel their best, and finances shouldn’t stand between you and the body of your dreams. That’s why we offer a number of options to make it easy to pay for treatment including: cash, certified checks, all major credit cards, payment plans and CareCredit financing.

CareCredit is a third-party financing option that’s similar to a credit card, but can only be used for health-related purchases. This card offers a range of terms and plans at low, fixed interest rates, and allows you to pay for your treatment gradually, through monthly payments. You can apply for CareCredit online or at our office.

In addition, we can also work with you to create an affordable payment plan, so that you can pay for treatment over a specified period of time, rather than all at once.
