What's your background, education and training?

I am a Board-certified, Harvard-trained Plastic Surgeon in the Boston area. My private practice in Newton, MA has been running since 1991 and has evolved into a full service surgical and cosmetic center.

When I'm not seeing patients, I dedicate my time educating and supporting other medical professionals in the art, science, practice, and business of medical aesthetics.  I opened my school the Aesthetic Institute of Massachusetts(AIM) in 2013, where we teach doctors, NP’s, and nurses injectables such as Botox®Cosmetic and Juvederm® dermal filler.  I also supervises Medical Aesthetics Associates (MAA), the most elite, compliant practice of nurse providers in Massachusetts, and I am currently building a national brand Aesthetic Mentor™ to share my knowledge and support others in the medical aesthetics industry.

What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

To listen and learn - the patient's experience is just as important as my expertise.  Once I understand where they are coming from and where they hope to be, I can lay out a comprehensive plan with a variety of options. I believes it is important to know our patients as individuals, so I can understand their desires, personalize their care, and customize their results.  We have a full-service cosmetic center that includes a state of the art operating room, the most advance noninvasive and minimally invasive technologies, a dozen lasers and a team of experts that work closely with me.  Our mission is to give great results based on the patients specifications, and follow that up with an amazing experience based on the entire teams passion.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

You want to look for a provider with experience and passion.  The industry is overwhelmed with Doctors and Nurses from all avenues looking to benefit from this cash only "beauty" business.  That is not to say that your Dentist or Dermatologist can’t be a fine cosmetic practitioner, but you want someone with a full understanding of the facial anatomy and physiology, as well as a keen aesthetic eye.  The difference between a cosmetic surgeon and a plastic surgeon is like then the difference between a generalist and a specialist. 

What inspired your passion for your profession?

There is nothing more inspiring than making a person feel better, and for so many individuals that is so closely tied to their appearance.  I started my career in reconstructive surgery and transitioned to aesthetic plastic surgery when I established my private practice 25 years ago.  Now I thrive on learning and advancing with the latest noninvasive technologies.  I find most patients want to get the best possible results with the least amount of disruption to their lives.  Thanks to great innovation, my team and I are able to give better results with less office time, less downtime, and fewer drastic changes.  They just want to look like better versions of themselves.  In turn, they feel better and we feel great given the opportunity to help.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

Naturally, I'm most excited to offer my own procedure - the J-Lift.  It's a minimally invasive lift combining FaceTite, profile contouring, skin tightening and resurfacing.  With the use of micro incisions we can achieve a surgical lower and neck lift result without the risk and downtime associated with traditional surgery.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

"I can't believe I waited so long!"  That confirms the level of comfort we established, and speaks to the results achieved.

What makes your practice stand apart?

One stop shopping, offering the latest technologies, combined with the highest level of training, professionalism and passion.  Every patient has a team working on their behalf.

With our list of service, from surgical to noninvasive, we can present options for any price point.

What do clients have to say about you?

“I want everyone to know that my long-standing relationship with you has been an amazing trip – you are a true artist in the cosmetological field. When you create your art, you have the insight to know exactly what to do with your medical craft. An artist understands beyond what he sees, he also understands the mathematical perspective of his art. In his art he pours his inner soul’s longing for perfection and too, for others to admire his artistry. In this way, he fulfills his GOD GIVEN TALENT and understands the meaning of his existence. I want you to know, how much I respect your work. I wear it every day, and, it is shared with others, who in essence can appreciate a true artist. I am also ever grateful that God was generous enough to place me in your hands. Your hands and your gift are such a blessing to many of your patients. For me, there is no one like you, and my heartfelt thanks for adding so much beauty to my life. Forever grateful, your patient and friend always…Bravo, Baci e tanto grazie!” -RZ

“Thank you does not even cut it. My life has changed so much. My clothes fit, I am still smoke free, but most important my SELF ESTEEM has sky rocketed. I am no longer trying to hide behind my clothes or making excuses. I cannot thank you enough. I am forever grateful.”
