Biography

Dr. Allen is an esteemed breast reconstruction surgeon whose practice is dedicated solely to breast reconstruction.

Robert J. Allen, M.D., is the pioneer of the muscle sparing DIEP/SIEA/S-GAP/I-GAP perforator flaps and a founder of The Center for Microsurgical Breast Reconstruction and the Group for the Advancement of Breast Reconstruction.

As a plastic surgeon, he has an interest in autogenous breast reconstruction and microsurgery. He believes that all women have the chance to keep their muscles and still have natural breasts after breast cancer. Dr. Allen has limited his practice to microsurgical breast reconstruction for the past ten years.

Dr. Allen received a medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina. He then went on to residency at Louisiana State University in general and plastic surgery. After completion of general and plastic surgery training in Louisiana, he moved to New York City for a one-year fellowship in microsurgery at New York University Medical Center.
