18 months ago, Dr. Z performed the most amazing abdominoplasty on me. The results are better than text book. Tomorrow, I am going to have a little touch up liposuction on my flanks and middle back. A few years ago, I would never have dreamed of having liposuction. But a few years ago, I would never have imagined that my body could look like this after a very bad pregnancy and massive weight loss afterward. Another local plastic surgeon took one look at my abdomen and said he couldn't help me. I was too afraid to go to another surgeon for six months. But my stomach continued to bother me and affected my self esteem. Dr. Z was so kind and gentle with me and told me that he could absolutely correct my stomach. I had very low expectations going into surgery. I wish everyone could see my before and after pictures. Z is a miracle worker. I also see Dr. Z for botox and the occasional filler. He has a very very light touch and strives for a completely natural look. Occasionally I tease him and say, but I want UNnatural!!! He doesn't do unnatural. He does do beautiful. In short, he is just the best.
I'm currently under Dr Z's care after undergoing surgery for a breast lift and a tummy tuck a little over two months ago. I decided to consult a plastic surgeon for these procedures following a weight loss of almost 100lbs. I thought about doing it for years, but was always a bit nervous about the idea of going under the knife for a major surgery....an elective major surgery! That is, until I met Dr Z! I was actually referred to him by another surgeon and am so thankful for it. I knew after my initial consultation that I was not only ready, but I was going to be under the care of the best surgeon! Its not hard to click with Dr Z...he is such a warm, gentle, kind soul who put me at ease from the first handshake. He not only listened to my concerns, but he asked me questions as well....A fact that showed me that this whole journey was going to be a team effort! I was going to have this surgery and Dr Z was going to see me through every step of the way....working TOGETHER with me to obtain MY desired outcome. That's what impressed me the most. He made me feel like I was his only patient! I knew that if I put the work in, he was going to give me 100%. I could not be more satisfied with the results! I worked so hard to lose the weight, but was never truly satsified by how my body looked. Dr Z gave me the body that I imagined for years but couldn't quite get on my own. He was there for me before, during, and after my surgery, even calling my home to check on me! That's a caring person! He gained the respect of my parents and my fiance (who all aided in my recovery) by speaking with them and putting them at ease!! He became a friend to us all! He is absolutely amazing....His talent is such a gift and I'm truly blessed to have him as my doctor!! I can't end without mentioning Dr Z's staff. The surgical nurses were great. They made me feel so comfortable and even updated my family in the waiting room during my surgery! We were all very grateful for that. I had my follow up appointments with Maggie, who is absolutely wonderful!! She is so friendly and sweet! Most importantly, she was so reassuring especially within my first few weeks of recovery. She told me to call her anytime and she meant it! No matter how small my concern, she always made me feel at ease. Dr Z, Maggie, and all staff.... Thank you for taking care of me!!!!"
I have always had an exceptional experience with your office. Caring, cordial and understanding of all my needs. You feel as though you have just left even when it's been years since your last visit. I am looking foward to my next experience as soon as I get a few other things in order in my life.
Dr Z is beyond professional, talented and extremely knowledgable!! Coupled with an amazing friendly and caring staff I knew during my first consultation I picked the right surgeon! I was replacing 13 yr old saline breast implants for silicone implants. I expressed my concerns and he absolutely took the time to answer all my questions! During my Pre-op visit I told him that I recently went on accutane and he insisted that I push the surgery to a later date and suggested that I stop accutane ASAP! He explained to me that accutane would slow down the healing process and was not comfortable performing the surgery. I came back 3months later and its been almost 5 months since my surgery..my scars are almost invisible!! I love my new implants..size fits my body and my lifestyle perfectly!! Dr. Z is not at all arrogant..he IS confident , charming and clearly an artist! I have already referred two friends to him and will absolutely see him again if I ever decide to have more work done! :)
I had my breast augmentation done last March and I have only positive things to say about Dr.Zienowiec's work. As soon as I met him, I knew right away that I wanted to go with him. He takes a lot of pride in his work, which shows. I am very pleased and satisfied with my results. He does an amazing job with my breast augumentation. It looks so natural and proportion to my body. I am so glad I listened to his recommendation in which size I should go with. He is absolutely amazing, he has that gift and he knows what he is doing. My incisions have healed so beautifully that it has only been 5 weeks and I am having trouble seeing the incision mark, which is a go thing. Recovery went so well, that after 5 weeks post op, I forget I have breast implants inside me. I went with Sientra Silicone and I am very glad I did because it is light and feels like real breast.
Dr. Z was great....wow...what a fabulous result....staff was professional and kind, he is very skilled and brings about the best result possible. Would definitely go back for other procedures in the future.
I had a full tummy tuck in April 2013. Today, I had revision surgery. I don't understand the negative reviews below based on my experiences. I do note that several were written by patients who never even had surgery with Dr. Z. I don't know what they expected from an initial consultation. But it sounds as though they were the ones being rude, not the staff. I also don't understand why there are negative reviews of the nurses. Today, Dr. Z marked up two areas for correction. The nurse looked at a 3rd area that I hoped he might tweak. She then asked Dr. Z to come back in the room. Lots of MDs might have rolled their eyes. Dr. Z actually listened to his nurse and agreed with her assessment. Then he marked up that area. Two of the tweaks were very time intensive because they were fussy revisions. Another MD might have charged me. Dr. Z did not. As I said, I am disappointed in the reviews by non patients. I am a real patient and my review and pictures can be seen at RealSelf.com.
After an upsetting consult with another plastic surgeon, I went to see Dr. Z based on the recommendation of a physician friend. Dr. Z took one look at my problem (a postpartum abdomen) and said, "Yes, I can fix that!" The results are phenomenal. Worth every penny! With regard to the negative reviews ... Is Dr. Z arrogant? I haven't found him to be so. Is Dr. Z confident? Absolutely! Most successful surgeons have a similar personality type. You have to have boatloads of confidence to cut a human being in half and then put them back together again better than before. Does he sometimes move quickly from one appt to the next? Yes. My initial consultation was not long. I trusted that he knew what he was looking at and that he could fix it. I didn't go in with 2 hours worth of questions. But he has never once rushed me either. With regard to imperfect results - that's a risk in ANY plastic surgery. But Dr. Z really works hard to achieve perfect outcomes and is happy to tweak results.
