“My patients tell me that I have a knack for putting them at ease.”

Elizabeth M. Sieczka, MD, FACS

Dr. Elizabeth Sieczka’s calm demeanor and straightforward explanations help patients at the Friedman Center feel respected and acknowledged during their reconstruction journey.

She loves working with women who want to play an active role in the decision-making process. Dr. Sieczka makes sure that each patient has answers to their questions to help them make informed and confident decisions.

Dr. Sieczka empowers patients with the information they need to feel confident about their breast reconstruction. She recognizes that knowing what to expect before, during, and after surgery is essential to helping women feel as prepared as possible for their procedures.

She also knows how stressful the process of breast cancer treatment and breast reconstruction can be. Dr. Sieczka and her team offer patients encouragement and support through their entire journey.

Dr. Sieczka is board-certified in plastic surgery and is a member of the New York Society of Plastic Surgeons, American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the State Medical Society of New York.
