5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Awesome Doctor and Great Office Staff! - Richmond, VA

Show More I felt comfortable with him, compared to all the other plastic surgeons i had consultatons with. Dr. Zinsser is "awesome"! I have been his patient since 2011, for major breast reconstruction and he has done a phenomonal job! He is friendly, knowledgable and has a great bed side manner. He works with the patient, to know what will best suit their need and situation. Great plastic surgeon!!! Will definitely refer friends and family in the Richmond area.

Journey from a 38DDD/E to a C Cup! 4 weeks post op- Virginia

Show More I first found him when I was searching for doctors online. He stuck out to me because of his unbelievable pictures! He has a wonderful personality and seems to be a great doctor.

4 out of 5 stars FTM Chest Masculinization Surgery

An Overall Positive Experience with Minor Frustrations - Richmond, VA

Show More Dr. Zinsser is one of only two surgeons in Richmond who perform this procedure, as far as I am aware. I ended up choosing him because he was cheaper and more experienced, and I don't regret the choice, but I liked the other guy's bedside manner more. Bedside manner is not necessarily a critical criterion for choosing a surgeon, since you want someone who can do the job well and you're not going to spend tons of time with them, but there are several follow-up visits for this surgery so it's something to think about. I always felt like Dr. Zinsser was in a rush with me, dismissive of my questions (which is reassuring in a way, I guess), handled me roughly and talked to the nurse across my body like I was not in the room. I do not at all think this is unique to him; rather, surgeons in general can forget that us mere mortals don't know everything they do and, yes, worry about unfamiliar occurrences in/on our bodies. (Not just surgeons, either, to be fair. The nurse at the hospital, wheeling me out to the car, pointed at a box of biowaste and cheerfully informed me that was my "samples.") The office staff are great; Esther, Melissa, and Kristen always know who I am and are very gracious and responsive, even with my tons of questions. However, I feel like there were a parade of small surprises every step of the way. I accept responsibility for not doing all the research I probably should have, but at the same time I would not necessarily have known what questions to ask. The post-op instructions I was given were partially copied-and-pasted from a different procedure and in some places contradictory, so were not as helpful as they could have been. I am satisfied with my care, and if I were to go back and do it again, I think I would make the same choice. But I might take more time to weigh the decision.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Great Doctor! - Richmond, VA

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

46 Year old - Richmond, VA

Show More I want to first say I'm a very particular person. I have emailed this man to death and he always responded even when he was on vacation. He exceeded my expectations. My results are amazing. If you are in this area do yourself a favor and become a patient of his. He also did Juvederm in my lips and Botox on my brow. I have had these two items done by various Drs. over the years and his technique was the best I've received. My daughter commented on it even saying it's the best my lips have looked. Also he does his surgeries in a top notch major hospital. His office is beautiful. And his staff is simply wonderful. I NEVER give gushing reviews...I mean NEVER. But he earned it.
