5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Awesome Doctor and Great Office Staff! - Richmond, VA

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

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.

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Immediate Results Were Fantastic but Long Term No So Impressive

I had a mini face lift and my immediate results were great. Looked 10 years younger but scaring around the ears limited hair style and withing 4 years I saw the same "droopiness" on my upper eyelids and jowling. For the money, I would recommend MiXto laser FIRST and see if you get the results for A lot less. I guess it depends on how severely you need it but the laser seemed to tighten , get...

Excellent!

5 out of 5 stars Body Lift

Best Bedside Manner, Excellent Lower Body Lift - Richmond, VA

I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Zinsser. I felt that he was exceptionally concerned with my opinion and perceived problem areas. The amount of skin removed was very great and the end sculpture is very acceptable to me. It was very clear at every step that my happiness with the result was very important to him. His facility and staff are excellent as well. He is competitively priced as well. I have told many people my story and sent them to Dr. Zinsser.

Beware!! Do Your Research Before Just Listening to What Dr Zinsser Tells You - Richmond, VA

Dr Zinsser and his office staff were very nice before the procedure. Turned very different afterwards, especially when things were going badly in my recovery. Dr Zinsser became very dismissive of my concerns and questions. The nurse was apathetic, uncaring.....

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

31 Year Old with Two Children and Wanting to Get Rid of Belly - Richmond, VA

No complaints. He was nice and curtious and made sure that you knew exactly how the procedure went. I was very informed going into this.

Simply amazing and caring.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

33 Years Old, Mother of 2, Deflated 34c - Richmond, VA

I can't say enough good things about this doctor and his staff! They have all been great from the beginning. Dr. Zinsser is very easy to talk to, he took his time with me and answered all my questions. He called the day after my surgery and has always been available over email. His office manager Kristin was very helpful in answering all my questions (and I had a lot) and guiding me through the whole process. His nurse Melissa was also great to work with, again always answering my questions, calling me back and just making me feel at ease. I was worried it would be awkward but it never was. Everyone was really professional and friendly.
