Meet Dr. Carlos Burnett

Westfield Plastic Surgeon at Burnett Plastic Surgery

"I love my work, and it has been an honor to be a part of each of my patient’s lives.”

Choosing your cosmetic surgeon involves more than just finding a skilled professional who can explain the details of procedures and treatments. They must be someone who cares about who you are and the life you lead. Someone you can trust to help you realize your surgery goals.

Dr. Carlos Burnett has earned the trust of his patients by listening. From the very first visit, you will experience his warm, honest, and caring approach. Our Westfield plastic surgeon takes the time to get to know you, answer your questions, and understand your concerns about how you look and feel. He believes this is the “secret” to achieving a positive outcome – and the reason he consistently delivers the results his patients desire.

Meticulously Focused on Detail

A perfectionist by nature, Dr. Burnett has an innate appreciation of elegance and style. His mother was a seamstress who instilled in him the “soft touch” skills his patients know and love. His meticulous focus on detail shows in the quality of his work as well as the one-on-one attention he gives his patients.

Dr. Burnett specializes in rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), breast augmentation, and body contouring, as well as facial aesthetics and injectables. Although he has provided surgical solutions to cosmetic issues for thousands of patients, he is committed to conservative care. He believes that surgery may not be the best choice in every situation, and often explores non-surgical options for achieving results.

Staying on the Cutting Edge

While some doctors stick with one technique or procedure, Dr. Burnett’s passion for learning fuels his search for more efficient and effective ways to achieve the best possible results. Through continuous education and the use of cutting-edge technology, he works to improve his knowledge and techniques with the goal of ultimately benefitting you – his patient.

In 2015, Dr. Burnett was one of one hundred doctors in the nation selected for the prestigious RealSelf 100 Award. He is proud and grateful to have been chosen from the nearly 13,000 board certified specialists with a presence on this dynamic online community, which has revolutionized the medical community by empowering potential patients to interact directly with the doctors they are considering for plastic surgery procedures.

Impeccable Credentials, Decades of Experience

Dr. Burnett is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He completed medical school at NYU's School of Medicine before his residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where he was Chief Resident. He has also completed advanced Fellowship training at the University of Southern California School of Medicine.

Dr. Burnett has been serving patients in his Westfield plastic surgery practice for more than 15 years. In addition, he works with the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Rahway, NJ, and the Overlook Medical Center in Summit, NJ.

Committed to continuously improving his standard of care, Dr. Burnett keeps up-to-date with education and advanced training provided by organizations with which he is affiliated. These include the American College of Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the New Jersey Society of Plastic Surgeons

Dr. Burnett and his wife, Patricia, live in Green Brook, NJ, and have two children. When he’s not in the operating room or seeing patients, Dr. Burnett enjoys watching basketball, football, and scary movies, as well as indulging in his twin obsessions: technology and men’s fashion. He is also passionate about getting a good night’s sleep and spending time with family.
