Dr. John T. Cozzone, MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 25 years of expertise. He has been the Chief of Plastic Surgery at Saint Joseph Wayne Hospital in Wayne N.J. since 2001. He has performed thousands of breast, body and facial cosmetic procedures. Liposuction and a full range of breast procedures—including breast augmentation, breast reduction and breast lifting—have been a special focus of his career in plastic surgery. Dr. Cozzone is also highly adept at performing body remodeling procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery). Known for his exceptional, natural-looking results and commitment to personalized care from the first consultation to the last post-operative visit, Dr. Cozzone is highly recommended by his former patients.


Dr. John T. Cozzone’s approach to treatment includes this important philosophy: to provide patients with personalized, compassionate, one-on-one care and an unquestionable level of medical expertise—a form of professionalism previously available only from large Manhattan-based practices.

Today, with the partnership of Dr. Luis Zapiach, and the staff of caring and dedicated professionals here at Art Plastic Surgery, Dr. Cozzone adds to the vision of personalized, attentive care as a fundamental quality of our practice.

Because cosmetic surgery involves patient emotion, appearance and self-esteem, every patient is more than a client and every transformation more than simply a medical procedure. Accordingly, Dr. Cozzone views each patient as unique, and each need as highly personalized.

“My commitment is to provide patients with personalized, compassionate, one-on-one care and an unquestionable level of medical expertise.”


Dr. Cozzone specializes in the latest and safest procedures in reconstructive and plastic surgery. He is also trained and experienced in advanced, minimally invasive surgery techniques such as endoscopic brow lift. In addition to his extensive experience and skills with liposuction, breast enhancement, and body contouring procedures, Dr. Cozzone offers the latest non-surgical therapies for treating facial wrinkles and folds, including Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, Dysport™ and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.


Dr. Cozzone is board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery. He holds licenses in the states of New Jersey, New York and Ohio and is an active member of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.


A New Jersey native, Dr. Cozzone graduated from the College of Holy Cross, Worcester, Massachusetts, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. With a passion for medicine, he immediately traveled to Italy and earned his Doctor of Medicine Degree from the renowned University of Rome.

Upon returning to the United States, Dr. Cozzone completed training in general surgery at Jersey City Medical Center where his expertise and commitment to patient care ultimately earned him the Chief Resident position. After spending five years at Jersey City Medical Center, Dr. Cozzone developed an interest in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

In 1985, Dr. Cozzone completed his training in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Ohio State University where he served as Clinical Professor of Surgery for two years. While at Ohio State, Dr. Cozzone studied under a past president of the American Society of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Cozzone then returned to New Jersey to establish his own practice. Shortly thereafter, he became one of the first American surgeons trained in the art of liposuction.


Today, in addition to his services at our cosmetic surgery practice, Dr. Cozzone is a senior attending physician of plastic surgery at Hackensack University Medical Center in Hackensack, NJ and the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, NJ.  He also is affiliated with St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital in Wayne, New Jersey, where he has been the Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery since 2001. Dr. Cozzone was recently recognized for over 25 years of dedicated service at St Joseph’s Hospital, Hackensack Medical Center, and the Valley Hospital.

Dr. Cozzone also contributes to a variety of local charitable organizations, and makes it a priority to give back to our community as much as possible. His hobbies include travel and the theatre.
