Dr. Colón has become one of New Jersey’s most respected plastic surgeons. He is often referred as a top surgeon choice for breast reconstruction surgeries, applying both artistic and flawless technical skills to provide his reconstruction patients with outstanding, natural results. His skill restores the quality of a normal life following his patients’ breast cancer surgeries and additional treatments. Dr. Colón also performs breast augmentation surgery, breast lift surgery, and body contouring. He offers patients all aspects of facial rejuvenation, from full facelift surgeries, to the liquid facelift, which transforms the face, using advanced nonsurgical treatments.
Education and Training
Dr. Colón earned his medical degree at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and then completed his plastic surgery training and fellowship at Harvard Medical School before joining The Peer Group in 1995. Dr. Colón came by his work quite naturally, growing up observing his father, a respected surgeon in Puerto Rico. Dr. Colón was drawn to plastic surgery because of the artistic, creative, and technical qualities of this field of medicine. Patients find Dr. Colón to be a focused and precise practitioner whose goal is to work in conjunction with the patient to achieve the best possible result.
In addition to his work at The Peer Group, Dr. Colón maintains a dedication to charitable work. He has participated as a volunteer surgeon in medical missions to Thailand, Peru and the Philippines to help children with congenital deformities and women with breast cancer.
Dr. Colón says, “In plastic surgery, we are usually trying to reconstruct a particular problem, whether it is related to cancer, trauma, or just aging. There is nothing more gratifying than seeing what you can do to help others with your hands and your imagination.”
