Skills and Specialties

He performs breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction surgery, as well as abdominoplasty surgery, liposuction, and the mommy makeover procedures.

BOTOX, Juvederm, Restylane, and Voluma are specific injectables he uses to create younger looking, gorgeous outcomes.

"I would absolutely recommend Dr. Gary Rosenbaum. He really is the best. I had to undergo breast reconstruction and to complicate matters I had previously had radiation in the breast area. Given the situation, I needed a doctor with the most sophisticated skill set. Dr. Rosenbaum was incredible - he was able to seamlessly graft the area where I had radiation using tissue from my stomach and back. My breasts look so great now, better than they ever looked and so NATURAL! I have seen a lot of surgeries but he really is the best. And while I had my breast surgery, he was also able to do a tummy tuck - INCREDIBLE! I feel like a beautiful woman, and for those of you who are undergoing mastectomy/breast reconstruction, you know that loosing the feeling of being a beautiful woman is a real concern. Dr. Rosenbaum truly is fantastic and he is so compassionate. He understands how important this surgery is to us as women and he involves you completely in the entire process. Dr. Rosenbaum is an absolute perfectionist and he will not be satisfied until you are perfectly satisfied. He deserves the highest praise!!!"

Going to Dr. Rosenbaum was one of the best decisions I ever made!"
"Dr. Rosenbaum was my breast reconstruction surgeon, after a bilateral mastectomy due to cancer. I have nothing but good things to say about him. He is super smart, and genuinely cares for his patients to have the best possible outcome. For me, he was the light at the end of the tunnel. I always felt better after seeing him. He always made sure to listen to my concerns and put my mind at ease. I cannot imagine going through this journey without him. I very highly recommend him."
"My friend had a breast augmentation with Dr. Rosenbaum. He is an outstanding surgeon and you can tell he is a perfectionist. He has given her the confidence that she needs and she loves her natural look. I went with her to a consultation and the dr had nice bedside manner. I was impressed with Dr Rosenbaum's professionalism and attention to detail. I definitely recommend him for your next procedure."
