Dr. Cooper’s Professional Résumé
Robert N. Cooper, MD, in Jupiter, Florida, is a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in aesthetic surgery. He is a Diplomate of the Board of Plastic Surgery. This means Dr. Cooper has met rigorous educational and residency training requirements, passed exhaustive written and oral examinations, and received the approval of his medical peers. He is board certified in plastic surgery and is a pioneer in post-operative patient care. His vision to incorporate a resort/spa facility to care for his patients after surgery was both unique and revolutionary.
For Dr. Cooper, who is also an artist, writer, and aficionado of classical music, plastic surgery is the perfect coalescence of the art and medicine. “I love this work. I see it much like the work of a sculptor. Going to the operating room is like going to a studio, sitting down, listening to classical music, doing something you love. Surgery is a calling which has become a great source of joy.”
Dr. Cooper believes that an important part of his work is to restore aesthetic and emotional harmony. “Our patients are vibrant, alive people. But they often feel an enormous discordance between how they look and how they feel. What we do is diminish that discordance and restore harmony.” Harmony also means creating a soft, gentle, and natural look for his patients. “My goal is always the same: to create a beautiful look that appears completely natural.”
Dr. Cooper brings to his practice expertise in both psychology and medicine. He earned a BS in Psychology at McGill University in Montreal and an MS in Psychology from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He served in the 174 Tactical Fighter Squadron.
Then, motivated by his abiding interest in medicine and his desire to express art through his work, Dr. Cooper attended medical school at the University of Brussels. Next, he completed residencies in general surgery and plastic surgery at Nassau County Medical Center in New York. During both residencies he was awarded the distinction of serving as Chief Resident.
Dr. Cooper’s practice has grown to one of the most prestigious in the United States. It has been built by patient referrals alone, and his patients come from all parts of the country and the world. His practice is known for exceptional patient education, excellent surgical results, state-of-the art postoperative care and a compassionate staff that is particularly attuned to the special needs of plastic surgery patients. In addition, members of national broadcast and print media look to Dr. Cooper as an expert in the areas of plastic and aesthetic surgery. He has been featured on Prime Time, 48 Hours and interviewed for Dateline. He has appeared in many magazines including Vogue and W magazine.
