Meet Dr. John Zinsser
After earning his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio, Dr. John Zinsser found his passion for plastic surgery while completing his general surgery training at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. He was attracted to the depth of specialties within the field of plastic surgery, and went on to complete his plastic surgery fellowship at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.
Today, Dr. Zinsser is a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 20 years experience. He is an active member in the following plastic surgery institutions:
- American College of Surgeons
- American Society of Plastic Surgeons
- Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
- American Medical Association
- Medical Society of Virginia
- Virginia Society of Plastic Surgeons
- Richmond Academy of Medicine
Whether treating patients in their 20s or 70s, Dr. Zinsser believes the keys to providing world-class results lie in a completely individualized approach to patient care. At Zinsser Plastic Surgery, you will be treated as the unique individual you are, and your treatment plan will be customized specifically for you. While Dr. Zinsser is happy to help his patients correct immediate aesthetic problems, he strives to build trusting, long-lasting relationships with his patients, many of whom return for additional treatments or simply to say hello during the holidays.
While no plastic surgeon can guarantee results, Dr. Zinsser does promise that when you choose Zinsser Plastic Surgery, he will be there for you every step of the way and work diligently to address your concerns and achieve the best outcome possible.
We believe Dr. Zinsser’s results speak for themselves. We invite you to visit our before-and-after gallery to see his outstanding results for yourself.
Why Board Certification Matters
One of the most important credentials a plastic surgeon can have is board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). This distinction signifies that your surgeon has undergone rigorous training in a qualified institution and has completed exhaustive examinations which demonstrate the highest levels of safety, knowledge and skill.
Unfortunately, many physicians advertise procedures for which they have received no specialized training, putting the health and well-being of their patients at risk. Just because surgeons refer to themselves as “board-certified” it does not indicate that they have been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Boards such as the American Board of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery are not recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. In fact, the ABPS is the only one of 24 boards approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
Dr. John Zinsser is a board-certified plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. When you choose Zinsser Plastic Surgery, you can rest assured that you are entrusting your health, safety and results into the hands of a qualified, respected and proven specialist in his field.
