Breast Reduction / Gynecomastia

Here’s the truth – Gynecomastia is very common. About one-third or more of American males of all ages have a condition called gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. Swollen breast tissue in boys or men is usually caused by a hormone imbalance of estrogen and testosterone. It can affect one or both breasts. Newborn males, boys going through puberty and older men aged 50 to 80 may develop gynecomastia as a result of normal changes in hormone levels, obesity, alcoholism, drug use and certain prescription medications. Gynecomastia isn't a serious problem, but it can be tough to cope with. It sometimes causes breast pain and often causes embarrassment. Be reassured that all cases can be managed by removal of the extra breast tissue. A small incision around the border of the pigmented areola is used to provide access to remove the fatty tissue. Healing is very fast and scars are typically inconspicuous, fading quickly after a few months. Downtime is minimal and you may return to vigorous exercise within a few weeks Gynecomastia correction is the most common surgical procedure for men after liposuction. Dr. Zienowicz is a recognized expert in this type of surgery and performs many Gynecomastia procedures e

ach month.This condition, sometimes referred to as “man boobs” or “moobs,” can severely impact a male’s quality of life and self-confidence.

Male Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty

Let’s face it - as we age, it is very hard to keep that tummy from bulging. Even if we work out and especially is we don’t, the skin and fat around the belly area can be almost impossible to lose. If you’ve work hard on massive weight loss, no amount of additional exercise or calorie counting will remove excess skin. Dr. Zienowicz performs tummy tucks on men throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Boston and Providence with beautiful results. Often the tummy tuck is combined with precision lipo-suction so not only do you benefit from a tight flat stomach, but your abdomen will be contoured giving off the enviable “six-pack ab” appearance.

Abdominoplasty surgery should only be performed by a trusted board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in the procedure and plenty of before and after photos of varying degrees of difficulty to ensure you receive the best results. Typically, Dr. Zienowicz’s incisions are the lowest placed, and scars fade within several months. Dr. Zienowicz has performed hundreds of abdominoplastys with exceptional results for his patients throughout Providence, Rhode Island, Boston, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.

Facelift / Neck Lift

Aging has the same impact on all of us - loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone in the face and neck. The typical signs of aging that can be reversed through a facelift are sagging, deep jowls and creases that no longer are eliminated or lessened through injection of dermal fillers, and a loss of skin tone that creates jowls and the appearance of a double or triple chin. A surgical face lift quite literally erases years of aging in one procedure. A facelift involves removing of excess facial skin and tightening of underlying tissues.  Often a facelift is combined with eyelid surgery for the most comprehensive result. When performed by Dr. Zienowicz the result is natural looking and our patients are thrilled with the entire process and feel so great about themselves again. 

Eyes / Blepharoplasty

If you have excessive, sagging or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin, an eyelid lift may be just the right solution for you. If you have excess upper eyelid skin that interferes with vision, if you have lost your natural upper eyelid crease or if you have puffy pouches of fat in your upper or lower lids that create a tired or aged appearance, consider blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, can give your eyes a more youthful and rested appearance. This procedure can also widen your visual fields if excessive upper-lid skin has partially blocked your vision. Dr. Richard J. Zienowicz is an experienced, triple board-certified plastic surgeon who provides eyelid lift procedures right here in Providence.


Botox, by Allergan – Dr. Zienowicz has been designated by Allergan as one of the Top Injectors in the state, treating patients throughout Rhode Island, Providence, Boston, Newport and Southern Massachusetts.


Dr. Zienowicz offers wrinkle fillers Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Radiesse® and Sculptra® as well as BOTOX® Cosmetic, which relaxes tiny facial muscles and eliminates deep frown lines.


If, as a result of your teens, you were left with acne scarred skin that is uneven in both texture and appearance, Demobrasion can be performed to achieve a uniform appearance. Dermobrasion is basically a high speed rotating disk applied to sections of your face, removing layers of superficial skin. The procedure is performed in the office after a topical anesthetic is applied. The process is performed by Dr. Zienowicz and usually takes less than 30 minutes. Following the procedure your skin will have the appearance of a sunburn for one to two weeks and any discomfort is typically manged with over-the-counter analgesics. Dermabrasion is well tolerated and the results can be transformative.


BodybyZ plastic surgery center is among the first providers in Rhode Island  to offer the Ultherapy® procedure for lifting and toning loose, lax skin without surgery.

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to strengthen the skin from the inside out, in a completely non-invasive way. After just one treatment, with no downtime, your skin will gradually reflect a more refreshed, uplifting appearance.


Ultherapy lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin on the face, neck, and under the chin to counteract the effects of time and gravity.  Ultherapy works by gently heating the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Your skin’s response to the energy is to stimulate the growth of new collagen. A gradual tightening and firming occurs, resulting in a natural lift of the skin over time.

Ultherapy is the only nonsurgical skin rejuvenation procedure that can specifically target and strengthen the deep foundational layer of tissue that doctors address in surgery. The ability to treat not just the skin but its underlying support helps to ensure both safe and satisfying results, with no downtime.


Most patients are able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment. The skin may appear a bit flushed immediately after the treatment, but any redness should disappear within a few hours.

Many patients receive good clinical results with a single treatment, though some people who have a fair amount of laxity may benefit from more than one treatment.  After one Ultherapy treatment, the regenerative process begins.  The full effect builds gradually over the course of two to three months. Visible effects include a lifting and toning of loose skin.

One of the first effects of gravity is that the brows descend, and the eyes start to appear smaller. Ultherapy will lift the brow, which in turn reduces the excess skin on the lids, opens up the eyes and gives a more refreshed appearance.

Ultherapy can be used for treatment of the lips to soften the vertical lines that appear around the mouth over time.

In the FDA clinical trial, nine out of ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line. This resulted in reduced skin laxity on the eyelid and a more open, youthful look to the eyes overall. Patients reported firmer, better-fitting skin in other areas of the face and neck as well.

Ultherapy is FDA-cleared to non-invasively treat:

  • Face and Neck– lifts the eyebrow, neck and under-chin
  • Décolletage – improves lines and wrinkles on the chest area


Ultherapy is an ideal treatment option for someone with skin that has become lax to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm.  Optimal candidates are between the ages of 30 and 65 with mild to moderate skin laxity. Ultherapy offers an attractive alternative for men and women who either are not ready for the commitment and downtime of facelift surgery or who simply prefer a non-invasive, non-surgical option for lifting and tightening their facial skin. After your 60-to-90 minute Ultherapy treatment results will appear gradually over the next few months. Many of our Ultherapy patients note results over a six-month period lasting for many years.

The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, and noticeable, so you'll look great from every angle.


The idea that cold can selectively affect fat led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.

The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is FDA-cleared and contours the body by safely and effectively freezing away unwanted fat for good without surgery or downtime.


It's a common misconception that weight loss and fat reduction are the same thing. They're not.

When we lose weight, our fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells remains the same. When we gain weight, those fat cells become larger again.

However, the CoolSculpting procedure actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated areas. Obviously, fat cells that are no longer there can't get bigger.

With the CoolSculpting procedure, once treated fat cells are

eliminated, they are gone for good. Whether or not you weigh less, you'll be thinner and your clothes will fit better, feel better, and look better.


When you lose weight, your fat cells become smaller, but the number of fat cells stays the same. When you gain weight, your fat cells become larger again.


After the CoolSculpting procedure, the treated areas actually have fewer fat cells. And unlike what happens with other procedures, there's no change in fat cell distribution in untreated areas.
