Dr. Lorenc and His Staff Are So Caring. They All Made Me Feel Very Comfortable Right from the Very Beginning. - New York, NY

I know I made the right choice coming to Dr. Lorenc's office - I did not feel the need to meet any other doctors or have a second or third consultation. I am very happy with my tummy tuck results. Thanks Dr. Lorenc!! The care continues to be excellent!! The day of surgery: Get up 2 hours before your surgery time- you will need to be there at least 1 hour ahead of time to be prepped for...

Best Dr. in NYC for Natural Results - Manhattan, NY

He is amazing!!I have been a patient of Dr. Lorenc for 10 years!He makes my trips to his office very pleasant!! Doctor Lorenc is a extremely skilled surgeon with a very friendly and caring staff.He can help you reach your goals with very natural looking results. First Class and Highly Recommended.I am very grateful to Dr. Lorenc. Dr. Lorenc advised me to have a mini-lift, not a full face-lift, since my problems were at the bottom of my face. He was not “pushy” at all, and replied to all my questions. Thank you, Dr.Lorenc.

5 out of 5 stars Prevelle

Prevelle Silk Worked Wonders

I chose Dr. Lorenc after much research. I saw that he had participated in several clinical trials of Restylane. Further more, he had experience dealing with my problem, which was using fillers to correct hollowing and dark circles under the eyes. He was very precise in his injecting, not injecting too deep or too close to the skin. Years of experience that was obvious to see. He was an extremely easy person to talk to, and made me feel very much at ease. I am sure I am not the typical UES clientele that he is used to, but never once did I feel uncomfortable. His staff is wonderful and warm, extremely professional and thorough.

Lots of years of painful poking and prodding, with little or no positive outcome. I had the procedure in April of 2012 with Dr. Z Paul Lorenc in New York. He was very pleasant, as I spent a number of hours getting numerous scars treated. The CryoShape procedure was painless...

By CATHERINE SAINT LOUIS May 2, 2012 Selina, 53, did not want to worry about her lumpy thighs before her wedding in June. So when she heard a host on “The Doctors,” a syndicated TV show, say that a new treatment called Cellulaze can “banish cellulite,” she paid $6,500 for it. “The fact that it’s supposed to be a permanent solution was definitely what sold me,” said Selina, who got a hefty discount because she agreed to...
