Dr. Robert J. Morin is a board certified plastic surgeon who performs a full range of plastic surgery procedures. In addition to general plastic surgery, Dr. Morin specializes in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the head and face. Dr. Morin received extensive additional training in craniofacial surgery, facial cosmetic surgery and pediatric plastic surgery. This additional training allows him to successfully perform a wide range of complex reconstructive and cosmetic surgical procedures on both adults and children. Dr. Morin has a specific interest in nasal reconstruction, ear reconstruction and cosmetic and cleft rhinoplasty.
Dr. Morin attended New York Medical College where he was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and also served as Vice President of the college chapter of the American Medical Association. After receiving his medical degree, Dr. Morin completed a combined general surgery and plastic surgery residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, during which time he served as Plastic Surgery Chief Resident. Continuing his post-graduate training, Dr. Morin pursued his special interest as a Craniofacial and Pediatric Plastic Surgery Fellow at Miami Children’s Hospital in Miami, Florida. During that time, Dr. Morin had the privilege of training with one of the world’s most respected craniofacial surgeons, Dr. S. Anthony Wolfe.
Dr. Morin has researched extensively and has been published widely in the medical literature. He has presented his work at medical conferences from New York to Israel. Dr. Morin has also traveled extensively to underdeveloped countries in order to help children in need of complex surgical care. In the past several years, he has operated in Costa Rica, Mauritius, the Philippines and Colombia. In addition, Dr. Morin was one of the first plastic surgeons on the ground in Haiti, operating on children following the devastating earthquake in January 2010. He has received numerous Awards of Distinction in recognition of his services to the children of these foreign regions and was featured on the ABC Nightline special about the United States surgical effort in Haiti titled “ER: Haiti.”
Dr. Morin believes that all “reconstructive” procedures are judged on their “aesthetic” result. Therefore, Dr. Morin’s goal is always to produce the best cosmetic result possible, regardless of whether he is repairing a cleft lip or performing a breast augmentation.
Dr. Morin practices plastic surgery in New York City and New Jersey
Rhinoplasty is probably the most challenging plastic surgery procedure. It is a specialty of Dr. Morin, who developed a deep understanding of both functional and cosmetic aspects of the nose and brought new techniques such as Ultrasound Rhinoplasty to New York City. Each nose he reshapes looks natural and is customized to fit the facial characteristics of his patients and preserve their ethnicity. Rhinoplasty can address a number of concerns, including an upturned or bulbous tip, a crooked appearance, and imperfections in the bridge.
In NYC, rhinoplasty patients are always asking to avoid a cookie cutter procedure. Dr. Morin, one of the city’s top nose specialists, balances surgical skill with an eye for detail. He works with the best and newest surgical tools that allow him to achieve the golden ratios in terms of size and angle between the nose and the mouth. A large percentage of the patients Dr. Morin sees in his office have already gone through one or more rhinoplasty procedures. If too much - or not enough - cartilage was removed, abnormal scarring or asymmetries may exist. In some cases, patients develop difficulty breathing due to a collapsed septum. Revision rhinoplasty is a highly complex procedure that requires specialized expertise. His results speak for themselves.
