Dr. Wisnicki: A Plastic Surgeon with a Passion for his Work.
From April 2015 edition. By: Stacy Carchman
“I enjoy what I do because it is positive surgery and most patients visit me because they want to, not because they have to,” said Dr. Jeffrey Wisnicki, M.D., F.A.C.S. Dr. Wisnicki is a plastic surgeon living and working in the Wellington area.
Dr. Wisnicki is a Board-Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
He received his training in surgery and plastic surgery at Stanford University in California, with fellowship work at Dartmouth University. He has authored numerous medical articles and book chapters. He is recognized among his peers and the public and has been voted “Best Plastic Surgeon” by readers of the Palm Beach Post and Palm Beach Illustrated.
Dr. Wisnicki is married to Rebecca, who is an R.N., with a background in cardiac nursing. He has two sons, Justin (17) who is a high school junior at Oxbridge Academy and has a passion for debate, competing on the national circuit, and Brandon (13) who is a 7th grader at Bak Middle School of the Arts and excels at computer programming. And don’t forget their dog, Buffy, a Shih Tzu and Poodle mix (a Shih-poo).
“Plastic surgery allows me to work with both sexes in all age groups, whether it’s a procedure to shave years off one’s appearance, improve body image, or address reconstructive needs. It’s very gratifying to see the immediate effects of one’s work and how it can often transform a person’s sense of self,” he said.
Some of the procedures that Dr. Wisnicki has available at his surgery center include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, face and necklift, eyelid surgery, forehead/brow lift and laser and skin treatments. He creates trust with his patients and is caring, understanding and confident.
He has also served in many hospital positions including Chief of Staff at Palms West Hospital, Chief of Plastic Surgery at Good Samaritan and St. Mary’s Hospitals, Chief of Plastic Surgery at JFK Hospital, Chairman of the Department of Surgery of Palms West Hospital and Chairman of the Board of Palms West Hospital. He is currently President-Elect of the Medical Staff of Palms West Hospital.
When he is not working, Dr. Wisnicki likes to travel with his family to varied and interesting places. They have travelled to Italy, Greece, Spain, England, Scandinavia, Estonia and St. Petersburg, Russia. They even spent a spring break in the Jungles of Panama and enjoyed a winter break in the snow of Vermont.
“It helps to keep us close, whether we’re sharing in the exposure to a different culture, or just enjoying a taste of a real winter climate. We always have the luxury of returning to our Florida haven,” he said.
“Plastic surgery is constantly evolving. Techniques are always improving and new treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, are continually becoming available,” according to Dr. Wisnicki.
