Our Center was established with a critical eye on our patients’ safety. Early on we realized that the quality of staff together with the environment in which they function affect outcomes. High on his list of employee qualities is the professionalism, friendliness, patience and empathy a patient needs during the cosmetic rejuvenation process. You will find them ready to support you all through your cosmetic surgery journey.
Working with architects and interior designers to interpret our vision, we created a state-of-the art cosmetic surgery center that reflects our focus on patient safety within an atmosphere of calmness and serenity. To maximize control over patient safety and quality within our Center we included SurgiCenter, a fully accredited surgical environment.

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.

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.
