Focused On Innovation


Dr. Zienowicz has invented, trained, and published on two well-accepted plastic surgery procedures and is known internationally for his scarless breast augmentation.




When choosing a breast procedure, Dr. Zienowicz believes women deserve the most beautiful and natural looking result. He has performed over one thousand breast augmentations, most of which are done with zero touching of the breast, opting instead for a small incision under the armpit. When a breast lift is necessary, Dr. Z creates technically precise incisions, most of which are fading to invisible following excellent follow-up care with Dr. Z and his highly trained team.




Or Trans-Abdominal Breast Augmentation is a specialized, technical procedure that combines a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) with breast augmentation. The result is a beautiful flat tummy and breast implants without any incisions or scarring. Dr. Zienowicz's TABA surgery was published in the September 2017 Plastic & Reconstructive Surgical journal, the most prestigious authority on plastic and reconstructive best practices.


Fundamentally, Dr. Z is the surgeon who will deliver the results you have dreamt of. No matter the magnitude of the procedure, you will receive the highest standard of care from consultation to follow-up to guarentee that you feel confident in your results.
