5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

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...

love my tummy tuck!!! - New York, NY

I can't say enough good things about my tummy tuck! I LOVE it and I love Dr. Lorenc who did an AMAZING job! I cant believe how great it looks, it really exceeded my expectations and the cost has more than been made up for now that I don't have to buy those expensive Spanx and control top pantyhouse anymore. And I don't worry about my stomach spilling over my jeans. I couldn't be happier...

Flattest Stomach Ever - New York, NY

I was so nervous ans scared but knew after meeting with Dr Lorenc that this was the right doctor for me. His warm and caring bedside manor reminded me of the old fashion doctors that made house visits to needy patients. After my consultation he put my mind at ease, I knew this doctor was most experienced and had the knowledge needed for me to be safe and happy. Before and after the surgery...

Weekend Z Peel Fraxel - New York, NY

Fine facial lines and brown sun spots. I went to Dr Lorenc for his weekend z peel fraxel treatment. My procedure was done on a Friday, as promised I was able to be seen in public on Monday. Each day got better and better. I didn't realize how great the outcome really was until weeks later when everyone commented on how beautiful my skin looks. It has been 2 months now and I can...

Love my Cellutyte Treatments! - New York, NY

I have had liposuction and have always suffered with cellulite until now. Dr. Lorenc is doing a new procedure called Celluyte and after the procedure I was sore but went back to work the next day. I am so happy with the results, the area that was treated is smooth and no dimples. I would recommend this treatment to anyone!

5 out of 5 stars Prevelle

Prevelle Silk Worked Wonders

I am a 27 years old with under eye circles caused by hereditary loss of fat under the eyes. The hollows appeared very dark and no amount of concealer would cover them. I looked like a raccoon, spending hundreds on creams and cosmetics. I tried every known solution and home therapy out there, before I went to see a reputable UES doctor. I did an enormous amount of research before I went to...

3 out of 5 stars Scar Removal

Keloid Treatment with CryoShape - Manhattan, NY

I have suffered from keloids on my chest and back for over a decade and had every treatment possible for this condition. 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...

It is a painless procedure with very little swelling &...

Red Carpet 101: Smooth Foreheads

No, we're not going to play Name that Forehead. Because really, the "rules" have changed. We've already talked about celebrity lies. In her highly informative book Plastic Makes Perfect, aesthetics consultant Wendy Lewis lists the top 5 lies: - It's in my genes - I would consider it in the future. - I've just had a bit of Botox - I take a lot of vitamins & herbs - I'm just lucky, I guess I used to feel that everyone should just 'fess up – it would make real...

Skin Treatments With Results LIMELIGHTâ„¢ FACIAL/ULTHERAPY

By Z. Paul Lorenc A new year, a new you...or just a refresher course... After a lot of time in the sun...we were so not loving those 'freckles' -three on one hand-two on the other-that "magically" appeared on the back of our hands. Even with being sunblock fanatics and wearing hats-our skin probably got more sun ray hits than ever before with all the triathlon training/golfing/hiking we ended packing into the warm weather months.

Zeroing In on Cellulite

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...
