ABOUT

 

Wilfred Brown, MD, FACS is a double-board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Wilfred Brown completed his medical training at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. He relocated to the United States in 1988 and completed an internship in Internal Medicine at the Jersey City Medical Center, followed by six years of General Surgery in the Yale University system. During his residency, he spent one year researching the viability of cryopreserved skin at the Yale University Skin Bank and Burn Unit. He completed his training with a two-year fellowship in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Pennsylvania State University. Throughout his training, he was published extensively in peer-reviewed journals and won numerous awards for his research.

Every dermatologist has access to the same products and treatments, but it takes a true artist, with skill and empathy, to create beautiful, natural-looking results.

Dr. Brown is certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons as well as multiple local and regional plastic surgery societies.
Dr. Brown has been in private practice for over 20 years, initially in Connecticut, and for the last 10 years both in Connecticut and Manhattan. Dr. Brown currently practices at The Laser Skin Surgery Center of New York and maintains a solo private practice in Middlebury, Connecticut. Dr. Brown presently serves as Chief of Plastic Surgery at both Waterbury Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital in Connecticut.
Dr. Brown prides himself on achieving natural, refreshed and balanced results without forfeiting his patients’ unique beauty.
