About

Bio

Frederick A. Coville, M.D. has been an Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon for over twenty years. Dr. Fred Coville, born in Brooklyn, New York, accelerated through school to begin his university studies at the age of sixteen. Upon receiving his Bachelors degree in biology, he went on to complete medical school before his twenty-fifth birthday. Working his way through medical school and residency, he pursued his first love − which has always been surgery. Dr. Coville pioneered the "combined approach" to skin rejuvenation years before it became the standard of care for contemporary cosmetic doctors. It is through these innovative uses of mechanical, chemical, light, prescription creams, and injectable therapies, with or without surgery, that Dr. Coville is able to achieve spectacular and natural results in his patients of all skin types. In this particular area, treating patients of divergent skin types, Dr. Coville is considered one of the premier physicians in the field. He has presented his techniques internationally and by invitation, to professional colleagues and the general public all over the world. Known as "Dr. Fred" to his patients, he is a capable, affable, and genial man who has a particular talent for making difficult and complex topics easy to understand. While living in London most recently, Dr. Coville consulted for the healthcare and aesthetic industry. He has now returned to the U.S. to offer his experience here on the Southern New Jersey Shore. Dr. Fred brings with him, all of his years of expertise, his ability as a surgeon, his love and interest in total health, the techniques he has learned from around the globe, and offers them to his patients here. He firmly believes that "Foundational Health creates Foundational Beauty," and abides by that principle when treating his patients.
