Voted One of New York City's Best Plastic Surgeons 2018
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.
Offering correction for medical and cosmetic concerns, a rhinoplasty reshapes the appearance of the nose and enhances nasal ability. Nose jobs are performed either via an open or closed approach. They realistically correct nasal anatomy that has been impacted by congenital defects, trauma or an irregular appearance. Nasal reconstruction surgery is a life-changing procedure that is often covered by insurance companies.
Many times, after nasal surgery individuals begin to experience breathing irregularities and are displeased about cosmetic results. For patients who have had unsuccessful surgery, we offer revision rhinoplasty. This procedure corrects form and function by removing cartilage, adding grafts or sculpting tissue. Since rhinoplasty is such an intricate surgical procedure, we recommend finding an experienced and qualified nasal reconstruction expert.
Some children suffer embarrassment from deformed or protruding ears, an otoplasty is a special surgery that corrects irregularities without visible scarring. This reconstructive procedure corrects inborn deformities such as lop ear and microtia with minimal downtime. An otoplasty addresses split ears and trauma via a finely tailored surgical or non surgical procedure such as pinning.
A breast augmentation adds volume after weight-loss or pregnancy with the implementation of saline or silicone implants. The procedure gives women fuller, more asymmetrical breasts and helps improve confidence levels. We utilize unique surgical techniques that reduce visible scarring and minimal side-effects.
Aging, pregnancy and gravity cause breasts to droop and develop an unpleasant appearance. A breast lift, or mastopexy, removes loose tissue and reduces the areola to create a firmer and rejuvenated bosom. The out- patient procedure elevates saggy breasts, modifies their size and enhances contour.
Large breasts are disproportionate to the woman's body and can lead to embarrassment, chronic back pain and skin irritation. Breast reduction removes excess breast tissue and skin, re-sculpting the breast region for better proportion. A reduction mammaplasty helps women regain a functional bust size and results are noticed immediately.
These congenital defects left untreated can lead to difficulties with eating, speech and ear infections. Treatment consists of safely repositioning tissue and bone to repair the abnormally positioned palatal muscles. The deformity can successfully be corrected by a qualified multidisciplinary team during a one day surgical procedure.
Patient over aged 9 with microtia, an underdeveloped ear, benefit from ear reconstruction. With two separate procedures, the surgeon subtly constructs a realistic ear using the patient's own rib cartilage, skin grafts and advanced technique.
When an infant's bones fuse together prematurely, the baby's head shape becomes distorted. A baby with craniosynostosis typically needs to undergo surgery to address the deformity. Cranial vault remodeling intricately remodels the bones so that the cranium allows for the baby's brain to grow and expand normally.
This neurotoxin is injected into areas of the face to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles by paralyzing the muscles of the injection site. Botox can be used to improve fine lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and beneath the chin. The lunch-time procedure is a common anti-aging treatment approved by the FDA.
Injectables such as Juvéderm, Restylane, Radiesse and Sculptra deliver high doses of substances such as hyaluronic acid to address wrinkles, volume-loss and hollow eyes. The safe treatments effectively plump facial features, minimize wrinkles and create firmer skin without risks associated with surgery. Fillers are a great option for individuals who want a rejuvenated appearance without downtime.
With technologies such as Palomar ICON or trichloroacetic acid (TCA) chemical peels, years of photo damage can be undone. The procedure removes dead skin cells and damaged skin to reveal vibrant and refreshed skin. Both treatments target wrinkles, age spots, freckles, rosacea and sun damage with minimal downtime and excellent results.
The effects of pregnancy and weight-loss can result in flabby and saggy abdominal skin. During a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, excess skin and tissue is removed and the abdominal region is sculpted to create firmer abs. Tummy tucks are a common procedure for both men and women and can be combined with liposuction for greater contour.
Liposuction can be combined with several procedures to sculpt the body. The tool removes fat from various areas via a small incision made on the body. Liposuction can be used to remove fat from the arms, legs, stomach, thighs, stomach, back, hips and flanks. The technology vacuums fat from the body with advanced accuracy and minimal side-effects.
This gender-confirming facial surgery enhances the male to female transition process by giving the patient a more natural appearance. During this procedure, the bone and tissue that assemble your facial structure will be reshaped and reconstructed to appear more feminine. After FFS patients take on a more female appearance and say goodbye to their masculine facial features.
The way your chin sits on your face can change your whole appearance. By implementing grafts, shaving bone, or introducing implants, the chin is reshaped creating a more balanced profile. The procedure safely addresses cosmetic concerns such as a small or receding chin, as well as developmental abnormalities.
The nose is one of your most important facial features, and an irregularly shaped nose creates facial imbalance. This procedure uses a paramedian forehead flap to correct nasal deformities while maintaining a subtle and natural appearance. The soft tissue reconstruction is an option for patients who have experienced skin cancer and other trauma.
