Dr. Arthur E. Desrosiers III, or “Dr. Arthur” as the team calls him, is the founder of Marquis Plastic Surgery and a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. 

Dr. Desrosiers is the best plastic surgeon.
Dr. Arthur graduated from Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons in New York City, NY, and completed his residency in General Surgery at the UMDNJ program, with clinical training at Princeton University Medical Center, in Princeton, NJ, and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, in New Brunswick, NJ. Dr. Arthur’s decision to pursue a career in plastic surgery was a natural evolution given that as a young adult he was an aspiring artist with inherent talent in sculpture, painting, and photography.

Dr. Arthur completed his plastic and reconstructive surgery residency / fellowship at the University of Miami / Jackson Memorial Hospital and subsequently received craniofacial fellowship training from Dr. S. Anthony Wolfe, arguably the world’s foremost expert in craniofacial surgery.

Dr. Arthur has published many scholarly articles on plastic surgery techniques, such as an innovative cosmetic labiaplasty technique. As a professional, Dr. Arthur continuously strives to bring cutting-edge, scientifically-validated technology to his patients, while never forgetting the human side of the art of medicine. The doctor’s attention to detail and humble demeanor set our patients at ease.

Dr. Arthur and the staff at Marquis are accessible, available, and dedicated to providing patients a safe and caring environment. Your questions and concerns are our priority.

In his time off, Dr. Arthur likes to spend time with his family, traveling, and perfecting his photography skills. Additionally, Dr. Arthur finds great reward in participating on medical mission trips, performing free surgeries for children in Haiti, India, Thailand, and Peru, among others. Since 2007, he has volunteered with Operation Smile, performing free cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries. More recently, he volunteered in Ecuador with the James Correa Foundation and operated on patients who needed complex craniofacial and reconstructive plastic surgery.
