5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
As an experienced provider, most times I set the bar a little to high, but Jo Ann Garofalo, RN and Dr. Zenn consistently sailed right over it. If you are looking for seamless, comprehensive, compassionate care with superior surgical talent, consider working with Dr. Zenn. My husband and I couldn't be more grateful.
5 out of 5 stars Facial Reconstructive Surgery
Dr. Zenn was outstanding and made a huge difference in my life. After having a cancerous tumor removed from my face following Mohs surgery, I was left with an enormous hole that Dr. Zenn was able to reconstruct. The result of his work allowed me to heal and enjoy a normal life. It required out-of-the-box thinking and knowledge for a solution. His calmness gave me the confidence to...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
Dr. Zenn is an excellent surgeon. I had a bilateral breast reduction and this was by far the best medical care I have ever received. He is caring, explained the procedure in depth, and answered all my questions. I had to call Dr. Zenn the night of surgery and he returned my call within minutes. My results are natural looking with minimal scaring. He is a master of his craft. Dr, Zenn...
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I had a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) earlier this year. Dr. Zenn's bedside manner was the best I experienced and I am a medical professional, working with many doctors each day. He was kind, professional, honest, personable, and extremely knowledgeable. I am exceptionally pleased with my outcome and results. My post operative pain was well managed and controlled. His nurse was wonderful and...
5 out of 5 stars Abdominal Etching
Outstanding! I would feel comfortable recommending him to anyone and infact I have. He listened to me when voicing my concerns, not only that he held my hand when I was scared and nervous til falling asleep, on the table before the procedure took place.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction
He is a wonderful doctor. I had a DIEP flap procedure. Dr. Zenn explained the process each step of the way and always answered my questions. I appreciated his honesty as to what could and could not be done . His staff is wonderful. He also performed a latissimus dorsi flap. After going through breast cancer twice, I have always said he gave me my life back.
5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
Dr. Zenn did my abdominoplasty in 2005 and my breast lift/augmentation in 2013. His nurse, Joann was as reassuring and professional as he was. During my consultations he was very realsitic and made sure I understood the risks as well as the actual outcomes. I called/emailed numerous times with questions and never felt as I was bothering them or asking "dumb" questions. I also know him in a...

He had to be my surgeon, no doubt about it!. Dr Zenn has great bedside manners, he is very professional and knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. He helped me choose the right size of implants for my body frame, and...
5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery
Dr. Michael Zenn is absolutely amazing Plastic Surgeon. He is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind he was at getting back and checking on me after surgery to make sure I am ok. I'm truly grateful that I was a recipient of his expertise as a Plastic Surgeon. He did a fantastic job on my eyelids. Definitely, I highly recommend him to anybody...
5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants
As a 42 year old mother of twins who recently lost 40 pounds, I decided that it was time to do something for myself and reclaim my prebaby body.....especially considering that my twins were born seven years ago. I selected Dr. Zenn for my surgery because he had an outstanding reputation in our local community. I I could not be more pleased with Dr. Zenn and my surgery results! Dr. Zenn is...
I am fortunate to be a plastic surgeon. I have always been artistic and enjoyed working with my hands and helping people. By hard work, top training, and great mentors in plastic surgery, I have earned an international reputation for excellence. I look forward to meeting so I can help you too.
