Using evidence-based and the most advanced technologies and techniques, he offers comprehensive aesthetic options to help all patients achieve the best version of themselves. 

Dr. Ajibade graduated Cum Laude with departmental honors in Biological Sciences from Rutgers, New Jersey State University.

Ajibade’s first exposure to medicine was to his Aunt, who not only steered his early educational pursuit but also continues to influence his development and perspective. As a nurse and midwife in rural Nigeria, her life work provided access to care and education to an underserved community.  Through her commitment, he learned the indelible impact a single individual can have on a community through passion, dedication, and service. Dr. Ajibade continues to contribute to the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery through the delivery of exceptional results and outcomes assessment for improved safety, patient experience, and comparative efficiency/effectiveness.

Ajibade appreciates art in all its forms and enjoys opportunities to explore and learn. He is an avid reader and loves to learn about new cultures through his travels. He spends his free time with family and friends, traveling, gardening and fitness.
