5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

Incredible Doctor, amazing results, I'm insanely happy!

About 10 years ago, I had a saline breast implant augmentation from a different doctor. My results and experience with the doctor were terrible. I knew I needed a revision, but I kept putting it off because I was afraid of another awful experience. After almost a decade of dwindling self esteem and hiding my deformed breasts, I built up enough courage to find a doctor. From the moment I met...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Dr. Z has changed my life for the best!!

I am a 27 yr old mother. I have a 7yr old child. I have been wanting to do a tummy tuck for years now due to a sack of lose skin formed after pregnancy. I tried everything including a personal trainer (2 times) insane workouts, diets from every book, creams, pills you name it and NOTHING worked. I knew that plastic surgery was the only way to fix it the problem was actually finding the RIGHT...

Best Plastic Surgeon in the country!

Dr. Zienowicz is hands down the best Plastic Surgeon out there! He is professional, kind, insanely talented, and just an overall GOOD person! I had a tummy tuck and lipo on my knees and thighs in 11/2016 and am SO incredibly pleased with my results! I'm 37 with 2 children (3 & 5) and can honestly tell you that I look better now than I did in my 20's! Dr. Z has been with me every step...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Exceeded my expectations and more!

I am 28 years old and this coming July will be 3 years since my surgery. Everything from the moment I stepped into Dr. Z office for my consultation, surgery day, and post op was above and beyond all my expectations. He is not only gifted in his techniques, but truly cares about you as his patient and makes you feel as comfortable as possible. He knows his stuff, so trust him! I put all my...

5 out of 5 stars CoolSculpting

Great Coolsculpting experience

My experience with Dr Z was fantastic! Also, Lee from his office has performed my Coolsculpting three times and I am very pleased with results. Lee is the ultimate professional and takes pride in her work and is very gentle and caring with the client. I would recommend any service that their office has to offer.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

45 year old 600cc Breast Augmentation by Dr. Zienowicz (BodybyZ) Providence RI

I cannot thank Dr. Zienowicz (Dr. Z) enough for his amazing work on my breast augmentation. (600 cc's, silicone, moderate profile, under the muscle) I had my surgery done on January 5th, 2017 and it has been something that I have wanted for over 19 years. I am beyond excited and satisfied with the outcome. He helped me choose the best size for my frame for a natural look. I was approximately...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Absolutely top notch!!!!

My experience with Dr. Z and his staff is beyond superior! From my first consultation, I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Z performed a medial thigh lift and replaced breast implants I had 10 years ago by a different surgeon. My new breast implants are perfect! Dr. Z not only replaced my implants but made the shape of my breasts so much nicer than what I previously had. I couldn't be happier with...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck Revision

Excellent results!

As soon as I met Dr Zienowicz, I knew he would do my surgery. I was self conscious but Dr Z and his staff put me at ease immediately. He spent all the time I needed explaining my procedure (tummy tuck and breast lift). I had lots of excess skin from losing 95 pounds and was concerned what the results would be. He told me not to worry and trust him. It was the best decision I've ever made. He...
