Dr. Richard Zienowicz has the following 2 specialties

  • Plastic Surgery

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

Wonderful experience

Dr. Zienowicz has taken care of me for several years. I see him now every 4 months for botox and once a year for fillers. He has performed excellent cosmetic surgery two times. I have the highest confidence in his expertise and results.

Three Stars

Dr. Z was kind and attentive but rushed through our first consultation and started to go get needles for a skulptra treatment when I said I thought I liked the idea before even discussing the cost. I had to ask his nurse when he left the room and then told him I would come back. After the first treatment he said I needed more ( which I did) and again started to prepare another $ 1800 worth before I told him I couldn't afford it. He then suggested another less expensive solution which was fine. Sort of in a big hurry and all about the money.

Wonderful Face and Brow Lift

Dr. Zienowicz performed a face lift and brow lift two weeks ago. Already I am healing beautifully and am waking up smiling with the results. I was really nervous in the days leading up to my surgery and felt so much better the morning of when Dr. Z met me in the operatory and assured me of the procedure we had discussed performing. The nursing staff was excellent, so kind and compassionate, keeping me in recovery until I felt ready to head home. I've been in the office since and each time the staff takes such loving care of me, I really feel like they become like family. I look forward to posting my photos on real self soon, when I figure out how to do it. By the way, this was my second face lift with the first occurring about 15 years ago by a well-known NYC surgeon. After the first face lift I was numb for months. With Dr. Z I have complete feeling from day one. I'm confident I made the right choice.

I am returning to Dr..

I am returning to Dr Z for a breast lift. After my previous experience with him I knew right away that he was the doctor that I could trust and that he will give me the result that I am looking for. Very realistic and honest, as well as skilled.

I love Dr.Z and his ..

I love Dr.Z and his entire staff! I originally came here by recommendation for a breast augmentation, and now I am recommending him to everyone! The process was so simple and painless and I couldn't be happier with my results. I will continue to come to Dr.Z for anything I need or want done in the future!
