Allen D. Rosen, M.D., F.A.C.S.


One of America’s Top Docs, Allen Rosen was named one of the finest plastic surgeons in New York and New Jersey, by both New York Magazine and New Jersey Monthly Magazine.

For ten years running, peer surveys by Castle Connolly Medical have recognized him as one of our country’s premier plastic surgeons. MTV, Good Morning America, Eyewitness News and NBC, have profiled his work and he has been an invited guest on News 12 New Jersey and numerous other network media events. He has been quoted in Allure, Shape, and Self magazines, New York Daily News, Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Times.

For over a decade, he has been a distinguished spokesperson for the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, and is the founding partner and medical director of The Plastic Surgery Group. Having finished his surgical training at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York, he relocated to New Jersey where he serves as Assistant clinical Professor in the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

Dr. Rosen believes in balancing the demands of a busy professional life with that of volunteer service. He was honored in the spring of 2005 for 10 years of dedicated service to Healing the Children, a charitable organization which helps children from around the world who need reconstructive surgery.

The American Cancer Society of NJ, for which he served as unit President, has honored him for his efforts to help women in the fight against breast cancer, and both the American Red Cross and the National Congressional Committee Business Advisory Council have singled him out to honor his outstanding contributions to community service.

“I am proud of the reputation I have established within my field.The years spent developing and refining my surgical skills are all part of a plan I made long ago… to be the very best. Today, I am dedicated to providing unsurpassed care for my patients and they can sense it.”
